Do you have link/ref to how Zeihan was harping hard about the rise of Japan in the 70s? Googling doesn't seem to be helping me oof
Did you know that before watching and becoming a subscriber to MoFreedomFoundation, I was obsessed with George Friedman geopolitical analysis.
America wants any rising power to emerge from to European Peninsula to Russia and China that is why it needs its big budget
Poland is successful because it is a NATO powerhouse, where the poles learning to fuel F16 they would take that knowledge and applying in opening a business there (no mention of the European Union at all).
He even mentioned at one of his articles that he was part of a NATO/Western think tank about the dangers of the USSR, and he said all he did there along with his colleagues is drink coffee and eat biscuits (like you said those MIC think tanks or what ever don't do jack shit).
Hell he even send me to a rabbit hole watching those Washington think tanks, that doesn't mention the MIC at all.
Luckily I found this channel, it makes more sense than those think tanks
The thing is that it was the Saudi‘s backwardness that kept their regime alive, while regimes that created a real economy and had an educated population like Korea, Taiwan or Chile all fell because there was a wealthy citizen class that demanded power. But these countries‘ survival didn‘t depend on their regime.
Tbh, I think Rob, not just as a joke but I think there is part of you that can see a future like that. Back in the 80’s, people really did thought of Japan like that. Now people say the same about China. No on knows the future. I think all experts dread a time when their prediction is not just wrong but super wrong
He fell for the Japanese superiority narrative. Good job Japan, ya got one!
I never really took that guy serious but I guess a broken clock has got to be right sometimes.
Be ready for the glorious success of MBS😄
Japan is focusing on a Cultural Victory and they’re doing well at it. The US entertainment industry REALLY needs to up its game!
Predicting the future of world geopolitics is hard enough with all new info we receive and how easy to reach with internet
something GF never have in the 70s
But again after 10 years from now we could be wrong
I remember when GF predict that WW3 was gonna be between Turkey and Poland and have 50 000 death. Yeah right 😅
Hey man it's not over yet lol
You mentioned that GF writes fun books. Any that you recommend checking out? Also, are there any geopolitical new releases that you recommend? (I know Zeihan has a new book, but I think you have mixed feelings on him?)
If MBS was king of an Arab superstate 40 years from now that would certainly be something one would not expect.
I'm quite surprised he hasn't switched his pick to china till now. Maybe he's gonna switch from Japan to India in 10-15 years and then when India succeeds they'll say what a genius he was predicting it decades before!
