Listening to a book by Peter Zeihan “The beginning of the end of the end of the world as we know it”

I’m only through the first part. But in it he paints a much less conspiratorial set of events of who the US and most of the other nations involved worked towards.

One of the unwritten rules in the formation of NATO was not to just defense against the USSR. There also was the agreements amounts all the European nations that none of them as well would return to imperialist ambitions.
It’s aim was to protect from without as well as within.

It’s so far a good read with a refreshing hopeful view of the near past and future.
He delves into the strengths and weakness many of the nations of the world have in the coming half century.
From demographics of youth vs old. Education, immigration to condition of manufacturing base agriculture and resources. They likely would not be the ones one would think.
In his assessment one of the bright spots in trade demographic and security lie with Mexico, US, and Canada and the North American trade agreement. It’s recent tweaking made real improvements for both Mexico and the US.

You might not agree with all his assessments. But it’s thought provoking. It is defiantly not doom porn nor world economic forum agenda.

Ironically, it is that same North American trade agreement, which has led to much of this century's political violence in USA and undermined the foundation for broad-based support for NATO.
