Global System Crash

Globalism is dying, and its collapse will kill a lot of people. We had hoped that it could limp along a little further, but Putin had other ideas. So, here we are.

Over the next few years at least a billion people will die of starvation and violence.

China will implode – losing half of its population over the next three decades.

War will sweep the globe.

The cost of everything will go up, and you will not be happy.

But, there is a silver lining for some of us – assuming that Peter Zeihan isn’t being too optimistic. And yes, I think that he might be.

Global System Crash

I had been hoping that we had more time before the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse began their ride. There was room for optimism in January. There is none, now. But, even if Putin had not invaded Ukraine, there still would have been trouble ahead for all of us.


Demography is destiny. (August Comfe)

Energy is life. (Doomberg)

Because we chose to live in bigger and bigger cities and pump more and more oil, our civilization is about to be turned upside down. We chose to have fewer kids. We outsourced our manufacturing. We forgot that there was a time limit on cheap energy production.

The good thing is that we got better at fracking. The cost of extracting oil via hydraulic fracturing has gone down a lot, and that means America has more time before it too suffers collapse. We just don’t know how long America has.

The bad thing is that the rest of the world rejected the idea of fracking, which means that their sources of energy are under threat. And, American engineers are pretty much the only people who know how to make fracking work.

Worse, there are persons of uncertain parentage who keep turning off nuclear power plants. Just when we need even more electricity, the earth nazis have decided to switch off nuclear power plants and burn coal. Our biggest example is Germany. No one does insanity better than the Germans.

China Is Doomed

At the same time, population decline has become a gigantic problem. Apparently, living in cities is not a good way to grow your population. And, if your country is run by an insane ideology, like… oh …China, half your population will die off over the next 30 years, or less.

That’s right, China will be half it’s size by 2050 – if we last that long. The Chinese are doomed. The only question is whether they will take the rest of the world with them. They don’t have much coal, no oil and little ability to grow their own food. Cut off any of that, and they won’t survive another year – which is why they’ve put their invasion plans for Taiwan on hold.

They might still invade Taiwan. But, Russia’s failed invasion of Ukraine made them realize that they need to think things through some more. A blockade of the Strait of Malacca, would bring down the CCP, and it seems that Beijing has just figured that out.

Of course, sanity is in short supply, so they might invade anyway.

The End Of The New World Order

However, there is a bright side to all of this:

The New World Order is toast.

Oh, Klaus Schwab’s minions at the World Economic Forum will still meet in Davos and talk about how they are going to rule the world. The same goes for the Bilderberg group, the CFR, Chatham House, the SPIEF, and all the other globalist wannabes.

By the way, did you know that Russia had its own globalist forums?

The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum – SPIEF – is a very big deal in certain circles, and don’t forget the Valdai Discussion Club. They’re in Russia, and I bet that you’ve never heard about those.

Remember that everyone wants to rule the world. Even Putin.

Global Famine

Unfortunately, the biggest losers will be in Africa. Cheap fertilizer meant lots of extra food, and their population exploded. But, the age of cheap food is over, and starvation is coming for Africa and some parts of Asia. This means that a billion people will die of famine over the coming years, starting in just a few months.

That’s the conclusion of Peter Zeihan, the most astute geopolitical and global resource analyst out there. And, I’m afraid that he’s a little bit too optimistic. The road from prosperity to starvation goes through a town called violence, and that will be everywhere in 2023.

The Book of Revelation calls it the opening of the Second Seal (Revelation 6:3-4). You could call it the ride of the Red Horse. And, it will be awful, everywhere.

When your kids are hungry, you riot in the streets.

Peter Zeihan

So far, Peter Zeihan’s best presentation has been this one:

Energy at the End of the World Seminar – Peter Zeihan

That’s two and a half hours of unrelenting doom, with graphs, charts and way too much proof. And, that presentation was made to some very smart people at the Naval Postgraduate School – which is good news.

If there is anyone who needs to know this, it’s the US Navy. They are the single biggest reason why the sea lanes are clear for shipping – for the past 75 years. And, they won’t be able to be the guarantor of global trade for very much longer, unless something changes soon.

The End Of The World Is Just The Beginning

Peter Zeihan’s book on this subject is coming out on June 14th, and you’ll be able to find it here:

The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization

You can also find other ways to get the book, here:

Here’s the description:

2019 was the last great year for the world economy.

For generations, everything has been getting faster, better, and cheaper. Finally, we reached the point that almost anything you could ever want could be sent to your home within days – even hours – of when you decided you wanted it.

America made that happen, but now America has lost interest in keeping it going.

Globe-spanning supply chains are only possible with the protection of the U.S. Navy. The American dollar underpins internationalized energy and financial markets. Complex, innovative industries were created to satisfy American consumers. American security policy forced warring nations to lay down their arms. Billions of people have been fed and educated as the American-led trade system spread across the globe.

All of this was artificial. All this was temporary. All this is ending.

In The End of the World is Just the Beginning, author and geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan maps out the next world: a world where countries or regions will have no choice but to make their own goods, grow their own food, secure their own energy, fight their own battles, and do it all with populations that are both shrinking and aging.

The list of countries that make it all work is smaller than you think. Which means everything about our interconnected world – from how we manufacture products, to how we grow food, to how we keep the lights on, to how we shuttle stuff about, to how we pay for it all – is about to change.

A world ending. A world beginning. Zeihan brings readers along for an illuminating (and a bit terrifying) ride packed with foresight, wit, and his trademark irreverence.

I recommend that you follow him on Twitter and/or sign up for his newsletter. I’ve done both.

Oh, and after all of that, you’ll get to see Ezekiel’s Fire and the coming of Gog and Magog – if you survive that long.


I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3

  1. I don’t know exactly will happen or when it will happen, but I do know what can happen. My common sense is telling me to prepare and not to stop preparing. I know that as long as the unelected Biden is in office we are in great peril, and it may already be too late.

    What can happen is a 90% die off in America through economic collapse resulting in mass starvation. Also millions would die from violence and or in death camps.

    All of this could occur even without an EMP, a nuclear war, or a more deadly virus release.

    If America would repent we could avoid destruction, but people need to suffer before they will seek. During that suffering millions will die.

    • Yes, these things can happen. And, you are absolutely correct that the key is repentance. Our pastors and fellow believers have sinned before God. Therefore, His judgment is coming against our churches. We must acknowledge our sins and seek forgiveness from God. Thank you, David. – JL

    • Another factor often overlooked is the role suicide will play. When people are faced with a life of calorie restriction, maybe no electricity, not enough creature comforts

      They will look around at their life and see they are vaccuous. They have nothing without electricified distractions and a belly full of food. Life will seem pointless to them without those assurances.

      Its sad, but entirely true of the majority of city dwelling humanity

      Suicide will be a leading cause of death long before starvation kicks in.

      Family suicide pacts will be common

  2. Brother John Little,
    I am sorry I offended you. I respect very much your calling and your labors in the Taiwan in there. I know if we trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whatever the outcome is will be spotless.
    I wish I had the ways and means to go to Israel. America’s fate will be no better than Taiwan’s very soon. God uses nations to judge other nations. USA is about to face what they have laboured for.
    The military industrial government complex has been behind this whole war in Ukraine. They provoked Russia and they deluded Ukraine. The goal is the next endless war aka Vietnam Afghanistan. The profiteering whores of war and their propaganda are in full force.
    And, as usual, the civilians suffer and truth dies.
    I’m just so sick of it. Disgusted. Tired.
    The sons of Belial have taken control yet again.
    You are always in my prayers and I’m sorry for my despair.
    Your brother in Christ our Lord and Savior and our only hope,

    • Hi Bondo,

      It’s good to hear from you. I hope that you are doing well, and I don’t remember any offense. None of this is personal.

      I have a question for all who are wrestling with this topic:

      How is it possible for the US to have ‘engineered’ Russia’s invasion of Ukraine?

      I despise US foreign policy, and I vilify the Military Industrial Complex every chance that I get. But, the US did not ‘engineer’ Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Russia did all of that on its own.

      Why are we acting as if Russia’s crimes are morally reasonable?

      Why do we not see this as a moral issue?

      Just because Ukraine has a corrupt government does not mean that it’s okay to murder its people, destroy towns and villages, rape their women, plunder their homes and try to take over their country.

      As followers and representatives of Christ, we should never extend our blessing upon such evil. I know that you are not doing this, but there are Christians who do.

      The invasion of Ukraine is evil. We should never stand aside and be unaffected by such a great evil. And, seeing so many do that is deeply disturbing.

      It demonstrates that we Christians have lost the point of what it means to follow Christ. We have become Pharisees, and will suffer their fate because our hearts are so hard.

      I feel partly to blame, because I have not made this clear enough. We have an obligation to know the difference between good and evil. We have an obligation to have compassion for those who suffer. If we do not, we will be judged by God. In fact, that judgment has already coming.

      Many years ago, I had to repent and turn away from being a Pharisee. In fact, like Paul, I can say that I was a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee. God was merciful in pulling me out of that, and I cannot stand aside and watch others take that road.

      Without love and compassion, we are nothing but sounding brass and a tinkling symbol.

      I hope that helps to explain my point, Bondo.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. Anybody that starts a war is against God.
    The neocons told Russia that NATO would not expand back in the early 90’s during the negotiations led by James Baker.
    Look at a map of NATO in 1990 and today. Russia has watched the steady creeping incremental expansion of NATO right up to their border. NATO exists only to oppose Russia.
    Putin is a cold-blooded murderer, war criminal and imperialist. He will rot in hell. He perceives the West is coming for him.
    And we are.
    A proxy war in Ukraine is the ultimate dream of weapon hawkers.

    With all due respect, this is two demons fighting it out.
    Same old story, same old song and *dance*
    Thanks for your reply Brother John.

    • Hi Darryl,

      I’m glad that you said that. Many Christians are unwilling to see that Putin has done anything evil, which is deeply disturbing.

      It makes it impossible to even discuss the wider ramifications of this war. The pro-Putin propaganda is so big in some circles that we cannot talk about what’s actually coming this year, because of what Russia chose to do.

      By the way, Martin Armstrong is not writing those articles. I don’t know who he hired to do his writing, but I noticed a very big change in style about two years ago. This has not been a good development. Whoever he hired has missed the point.

      Also, we need to remember that this isn’t about the Ukrainian government. Zelensky doesn’t matter. What matters is the wholesale death and destruction that is being inflicted upon civilians who just wanted to live their lives, raise their kids and leave a better future for the next generation.

      Worse, there are Christians – true brothers and sisters in Christ – who are being killed here. I know some of them. The growth of Biblical Christianity found some very fertile ground in Ukraine in ways completely unlike Russia – which persecutes Baptists and Protestants.

      And, there’s an even bigger issue:

      By being uncaring about the suffering in Ukraine, we have demonstrated to non-Christians that we are hypocrites. And yes, I see these kinds of comments every day from the Left. They are mystified by our lack of care.

      Being bitter against the Military Industrial Complex does nothing to address the core issue. This isn’t about politics. It’s about compassion for those who suffer.

      Those who call themselves Christian, but are unmoved by the terrible suffering of the Ukrainians… are not followers of Christ. And, they will pay an eternal price for the hardness of their hearts. I have named names in the past, and those same people are still proving their unfaithfulness.

      Think of this as a spiritual test – one that we are failing.

      Again, thank you for adding to your thoughts, Darryl. It’s good to see that you have not lost sight of the moral dimension.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      PS. If you want to know what’s happening, you need to read what the Russians are saying to each other. And, you can get that here:

      And follow Peter Zeihan who is donating all profits from his books to relieve the suffering of Ukrainian refugees:

      Peter knows what’s coming this year and the next. And, a billion people will die.

    • Hi DRG,

      I like Amir a lot. He’s a very good guy, with a great heart. (I just disagree with his eschatology.) And, he has gotten a lot more gray since the last time that I saw him on video.

      As for that government collapse, it looks like Israel’s ‘Deep State’ has failed in its attempt to get rid of Netanyahu. People don’t think of Israel as having a ‘Deep State’, but it does, in spades. And, it has been participating in Israel’s cultural civil war for a long time.

      Unfortunately, Amir is incorrect about Kaliningrad. St. Petersburg is Russia’s major all weather port. Kaliningrad is Russia’s strategic base that was fortified to act as a deterrent to NATO. Kaliningrad can still be resupplied by sea (and is) from St. Petersburg, but the ‘loss of face’ is probably the bigger issue. Putin has now been insulted, but might not be able to do anything about it.

      By the way, Lithuania’s decision reflects a belief that Russia is too weak to respond militarily to the ‘insult’. They are probably correct in the short term. Longer term… we’ll see.

      The Russian mafia has sucked the life out of the Russian military. The stories that I’m hearing explain why Russia has performed so poorly in Ukraine. Corruption among Russian officers and from the Russian mafia has been terrible. Russian contract soldiers live a miserable life.

      And, I’ve had second-hand experience with the Russian mafia. They operate in Israel, selling drugs and operating prostitution rings. And, they are the most brutal organized crime gangs in the world. No one beats the Russian mafia, when it comes to brutality.

      As for my health, not sure. Just went through a major round of tests, and I’ll get the results on Monday.

      It’s good to hear from you, DRG. I hope everything is going well.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  4. Hi John,

    One thing I should point out is thank you for your continued dedication to these articles. It provides alot of empathy and edification in a dark world.

    I have finally pin pointed that I suffer alot from destructive relationships because for years its been a struggle to find supportive people to work with in any field in general. I am stuck in family business and sadly I would like to move beyond that however I feel like I have exhausted every avenue to be able to finally get the financial freedom I desire.

    All of these things that are to come to pass have created the a hurdle to be able to attain this. And why I find this so important sometimes when I think about it is, what good I am able to offer other people when I don’t have anything to give of myself?

    Like MEM made a comment suicide will play a role. I am even sometimes thinking will I ever have to face a decision that could make me have to do this?

    The main reason I have concluded why anyone would consider this is because internally they are looking a solution to put an end to their problems once and for all. No more pain, no more suffering. And for some it a logical thought process coming to the that conclusion not just a “spur of the moment” idea because they happened to get in a nasty fight with their wife or something. Anyway been while since we corresponded

    Also anyone reading this, please reach out to me if you can. I am growing tired of the unhealthy situation I am in because my family refuses to look towards God and they lack the ability to be empathetic towards each other. Its extremely upsetting when your the one trying to make real differences in your life and there’s and they constantly failed to acknowledge what you are doing and up your effort to help.

    • Hi Aaron VC,

      I’m so sorry. My own experience resonates with yours. And, I’m sure that you have terrible stories to tell. Our families will often do the most damage to us.

      Some are fortunate to have great, supportive families that encourage them in their walk with Christ. Some even have a church that helps bind up the wounds and heal the bruises that they’ve suffered.

      For most of us, this is not the case. And, it hurts to see the suffering that so many go through.

      Those who suffer chronic depression, understand what suicide is. It’s the ultimate anesthetic. As you said, “no more pain, no more suffering.” Most do not understand this, but it’s a big reason why some of us should not own a gun. I never have, and there’s some of that reason for why. When all it takes is a few grams of pressure to end all your problems, having something like that around is a bad idea.

      If it is of any comfort, these things are not forever – even though they seem like they never end. God is merciful, and He cares about our suffering. He never lets us go through more than we can take. And, it all has a reason.

      There is a purpose for what we must go through, and it took years – no, decades – for me to see it. I’ve traveled the River of Despair, and I’ve discovered that it leads to a place called Purpose.

      Having said all that, I know that these are just words on a screen. They can be cold comfort for those going through a difficult time.

      May the Lord God of heaven and earth give you peace, and comfort you in the midst of these times. May He guide your way and bless your life.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      PS. The abuse that many suffer, often comes from people that we call narcissists. There is a YouTube channel called ‘Surviving Narcissism’ that focuses on these people. And, since our society encourages narcissism, this might be a good channel to pay attention to:

      Surviving Narcissism

      BTW, the Biblical word for these people is… wolf.

      • Thanks for the response John and the link. I know alot of the problems my family faces is because of narcissism. The selfish society we live in has unfortunately created many of these.

  5. Brother John,
    I have missed your column this month> Is all well with you?
    Faithful reader,
    Bruce Jordan

    • Hi Bruce,

      I’m in the midst of a major course change. I’ve known the need to do this for a while, and now is the time.

      That ‘course change’ is Omega Shock will go into retirement on a less expensive server, so that I can concentrate on some of the most pressing issues facing the Body of Christ, right now.

      The fulfillment of Revelation 6 has begun, and we are woefully ill prepared for what is coming. We were all looking in the wrong direction as the Four Horsemen saddled up and got ready to ride. I had hoped that we had more time, but we don’t.

      Lord willing, I will have set up soon. After that, I need to finish recording the audio version of Ezekiel’s Fire. That book and When Gog Comes will be submitted to Amazon. The electronic versions will always be free. I hope to produce a printed version soon, but that will cost something since printing is expensive.

      I hope that I’m wrong about what’s coming this year. I’m bad at timing, so it’s possible that we’ll be granted more time. But, unless something changes quickly, we all face a very difficult future. And each year will be more difficult than the previous.

      The ride of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse was never going to be very fun.

      Sorry for the deafening silence, Bruce, and thank you for being concerned.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      PS. I keep neglecting to mention how my cancer is going.

      My latest test results show that my Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is about 12% worse than my previous test result from three months earlier. I will probably need to start chemotherapy sometime next year, if my Leukemia keeps increasing like this. I will be doing my best to hold off on that for as long as I can.

      My understanding of CLL is that you really only get one good shot at chemotherapy. Each round of chemo after that is more difficult and less effective. So, I’ll have three to five years of remission after the first round, before needing to do it again.

      There are far worse cancers than Leukemia, and this one gives me the time to finish what needs to be done.

      For those who haven’t been reading When Gog Comes, now would be a good time for that.

      – JL
