I don't "know all" . . . but I often have some level of insight into upcoming trends long before most people recognize them
so when I say "this is what I expect to happen", it could be (in theory) used, (as I actually intend it), as a heads-up for mitigating #risk . . . this is also (for example) the rationale regarding my thoughts about both bitcoin and trump -- they are too up and down for my comfort and potentially, as a result, add extra volatility and risk into any long-term planning
it may be good, it may not -- but the types of "energy" we see around trump and around crypto currencies add a level of risk that is greater than I, personally, would wish to experience
and this up/down reactive energy almost always adds problems into the equation at some point down the road
as to the post below, ten years ago (and I, indeed, talked about it over ten years ago -- and repeated it, nonstop ever since), it would have been less urgent and less expensive to address these issues in regards to potential #flood damage
eventually, things that could have been fixed when they were small problems
turn into a #crisis if not addressed when the problem is still "in the future"
the future, unfortunately, for many of these communities, though, is right now
