Future Megacities Will Be High Tech Snake Pits - Pentagon

A leaked Army video paints a bleak picture of megacities in the 2030's, looking and sounding a lot like your standard "dystopian future" science fiction trope. Somewhat unusually for Pentagon training fare, the video portrays some of the social aspects of this predicted future. 
Strikingly, the megacities the Army imagines are like something from the pages of an early William Gibson novel. Rich people with unimaginable technologies live alongside shantytowns, and both groups are knit together by “unaligned individuals” who work “in the shadows” on digital weapons and social media counter-insurgencies.
