The Smithsonian Institution’s new FUTURES exhibit asks attendees when they assume we’ll see a “single global government.”
The global authorities query seems on a display contained in the exhibit that enables visitors to wave their palms in entrance of a digicam to pick out a solution to the questions that present up.
“When might there be a single global government?” reads the query.
The solutions that somebody can select from embody time frames starting from 10 years to 100 years or by no means.
Another query on the display on the exhibit asks the general public: “Which of these might unite different people most effectively?”
The solutions that customers can choose embody “shared world government, virtual reality travel, a universal language, an alien invasion or none of the above.”
The global authorities query evokes parallels to the information that the Biden administration has reached an settlement with different G-20 international locations on a global minimal company tax.
The FUTURES exhibit is situated within the Smithsonian’s Arts and Industries Building (AIB) in Washington, D.C., which has been closed to the general public for 20 years. The museum’s grand opening was Nov. 20. Some sponsors for the exhibit embody Ford, Oracle, Amazon Web Services, Comcast NBC Universal and the NFL.
