Germany has evolved from decentralised to centralised government over the past 400 years, allowing politics to dictate the path of technological, industrial and social development: A professional bureaucracy was developed which systematised collection and analysis of information and rationalised taxation by increasingly focusing it on wealthier persons; educating students with low and high ability in separate schools has saved resources and maximised educational outcomes; government-funded institutes and universities have promoted science and enabled coordination of professorships, recruitment, systematic growth of educational infrastructure and development of research focal points and technological centres; Green land policies and high land prices have ensured that 98,7% of living space is occupied by Germans and ancestral Germans, providing an equally effective limit on culturally dubious elements; the Energiewende will make oil obsolete and improve community hygiene. Technological supremacy has enabled $4,7 trillion in trade surpluses and the accumulation of vast foreign assets: The Southern US has been industrialised; North Carolina's, South Carolina's and Georgia's ports and railways have profited especially; German influence in the US Congress effectively nullifies American Presidents. Supremacy in electron-, ion-, plasma- and laser-based production aids deployment of solar cells, fuel cells, power electronics, supercapacitors and batteries. As direct current displaces alternating current in high-rent buildings, and then systemwide, demand for electricity and energy-intensive materials will decline. Production technologies for micro- and nanostructured ceramics and organic pigments, such as nano grinding mills, plasma systems and kilns, decrease battery recharging times by an order of magnitude, nearly triple ranges of battery-powered cars and enable increases in ranges of torpedoes and deployment of fuel cells on ships and longer range U-boats. Bionic envelopes applied to hulls of ships will reduce oil demand. Retooling engine plants with laser-plasma reactors facilitates usage of diamond-like carbon films and increases in fuel efficiency of automobiles. High-to-low thermal flux plasma systems and reactors reduce the tonnage of chemicals needed to process yarn, textiles, hides and three-dimensional metallic, plastic, silicate and wooden components, and energy and labour demand therefrom, by more than 99%. Mass production of large conductive sheets for powering organic light emitting diodes will reduce demand for electricity and associated usage of materials at transportation nodes, commercial buildings and homes. Electromagnetic pulse extermination systems will eliminate usage of chemicals in automotive painting. Glass produced in variable pressure and laser-furnace systems will displace usage of petrochemicals. Mould, die and extrusion technologies enable replacement of petrochemicals with cellulose- and starch-based foams; genetically optimised plants will increase supplies of feedstocks. Wax produced from biogenic gases will reduce oil demand. Near the 1930s-era synthetic rubber sites, "Green" rubber factories have been built that reduce energy use comparably with natural rubber. Thermally conductive polymers enable ductless, mould-free and energy-efficient heating and cooling. Bionic concrete enables collection of energy from building exteriors. Oil produced from stranded natural gas fields, farm, paper mill and sawmill waste, and rubber from optimised dandelions, will displace petroleum. As advances in nanoengineered paints, the metallurgy of refractory metals, silicate technologies and high-temperature electronics and sensors are commercialised, enabling increases in durability and real-time monitoring and control of oil and gas drilling devices, production equipment and borehole probes, costs of producing oil and gas will decline drastically. Large-area nanomembranes will reduce costs of producing oil from tar sands. Laser-based mass production of high-capacity polymer composite pipelines will reduce costs of transporting oil and gas. High-temperature sensors will reduce waste of materials and energy in the plastic and rubber industries. Ultra high-temperature sensors made from synthetic gems will improve energy efficiency and performance of jet engines, rocket engines, thrust vectoring systems, plasma reactors, metallurgical works and power plants. Plasma ignition systems, optimised combustion chambers and nanoengineered bearings, coatings and superalloys will reduce the tonnage of coal burned per power output, power prices and demand for oil and gas. Automated systems for inspecting the microstructure of cast iron components and producing polymer composites enable bigger and more economic wind turbines. New quantum interferometers facilitate materials system modeling, modeling of matter-antimatter plasmas and construction of antimatter accelerators. Advances in tungsten metallurgy and robotics have enabled testing of long-pulse nuclear fusion reactors: The perfect magnetic surfaces needed for operation have been achieved. From 2020, the price wars between the oil, gas and coal industries will intensify ruinously.
II. Industrial Revolutions 3.0/4.0
Green technology has aided conquests of electronic chemicals markets and is aiding Industrie 4.0. Germany developed optical fibre cables before such devices were deployed with the Apollo television cameras. Since 1960, state subsidies have achieved supremacy in plasma reactors, diamond tools, ion beams, nano stepper motors, producing optical fibres, crystal machining and lasers: German organisations now supply more than half of all lasers. Operation Paperclip enabled American leadership before 1990 but since then Germany has decisively surpassed the US: E.g. the high-temperature electronics and sensors the US military subsidised in the 1980s, and allowed to be commercialised in the 1990s, enabled automation in many areas and collapsed the oil market; new German devices will bankrupt most oil producers. Concurrent with the escalating American-led wars in the Middle East, German state subsidies achieved supremacy in dry adhesive robotic gripping materials: Systems rivaling nature's highest standards have been deployed. Since 2011, the Fukushima disaster has facilitated funding for mass-producing robotic components, foundries for quartz glass nanocircuits and neutralising radioactive waste. Production of magnetoresistive integrated circuits in variable angle of incidence plasma reactors improves the functionality of robots. Carbon nanotube production technology enables deployment of robotic skin with extrasensory perception (ESP) sensors for detecting human auras. Green radar subsidies have funded high-resolution three-dimensional (3-D) satellite terrain mapping and robotic microstructural inspection systems. German dominance in nanostructured polymer- and glass-based optics, nonlinear crystals, infrared and diamond optics, massively parallel laser imaging systems, light detection and ranging and hyperspectral, terahertz, X-ray, night vision and 3-D cameras is decisive. Camera, laser, radar, electric sensor, magnetic sensor and dry adhesive gripping systems facilitate deployment of industrial and military robots, enable fully automated ultra-precise inspection of components and reduce recycling costs, demand for raw materials and oil demand. German rocket combustion chambers, fibre-optic gyroscopes and nano-optical devices will reduce the cost of space-based relay nodes and force replacement of communications monopolies' slow and energy-intensive systems. Upgrading the infobahnen with nanoengineered fibre optical, light-based wireless and quantum encrypted laser- and satellite-based systems will enable control of distant robotic systems with holodecks and reinforce economies of scope and scale at technological centres. Increases in glass, metal and silicate-on-metal laser microstructuring rates will displace low-wage jobs, usage of chemicals and increase durability and fuel efficiency of aircraft and automobiles. Mass production of nanotechnological windows with lasers will reduce usage of chemicals, materials and energy demand from buildings. Multi-axial, simultaneous and variable length pulse laser machining of machine elements and moulds will displace skilled workers. New automotive textile weaving machines will displace petrochemicals with composite fabrics; silk produced in high-efficiency bioreactors optimised with genetically engineered bacteria and nanoprobes will replace petrochemical yarns; plasma reactors reduce the cost of carbon yarn, aiding its use. Software for nonwoven fabric mills will reduce usage of labour, power, petrochemical yarns and natural fibres. Weight reduction in machine construction increases energy efficiency, speed, precision and dominance in the aerospace, automotive, textile, robotic and laser industries. Automated manufacturing of curved and flat carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) reduces component costs. Robotic milling of CFRP components with vehicle-mounted machine tools reduces energy, materials and workers needed to manufacture aircraft, automobiles, rolling stock and ships. High-performance radio frequency modules dispense with batteries and wiring, enable more intensive mechanisation of factories by optimising retooling and displace jobs at hotels, office buildings and warehouses. Autonomous railways will displace oil-intensive fast freight. In the more distant future, that is by the late 2020s, ESP technologies based on quantum engineered diamond will improve the functionality of robotic servants and infantry combat systems. Robotic systems will eliminate imports from the Third World, foreign jobs and associated demand for oil, gas and petrochemicals.
