In an exterminist future, there are no rights. A post-capitalist world of hierarchy and scarcity will only serve those that have power and status. The development of technology and automation will reach a critical point where human labour will be unneeded. Climate change, if left unchecked, will strip our world of natural resources and challenge our survivability. In this future, the elite will detach themselves from the rest of society and control nearly all of the remaining resources. The rights of the common citizen will be removed and become irrelevant. Militarization will be a force of oppression to prevent lower society to revolt or challenge the elite. Mass surveillance will denounce any sense of privacy and identity. As the two ends of society become increasingly banded amongst themselves, class division will only be polarized.
