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