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.

When Did World War III Begin?

Whether we like it or not, a third world war has begun, and it is being fought for all the same reasons that previous world wars have been fought. The question is…

When did World War III begin?

Remember that wars are started by people who want something and consider mass murder to be an acceptable way of getting it. If the world did not have leaders willing to engage in mass murder, there would be no wars.

However, God has turned our evil towards His purposes. God used World War I and World War II.

How is God using World War III?

The Game of Wolves

We don’t know all the reasons why Russia invaded Ukraine, but we can guess at some of them. Fear of NATO is certainly part of the picture, but only part. The largest element is greed.

Money and power drive our wars, and this one is no different. If it was just about stopping Ukraine from joining NATO, Russia would have used a different strategy. But, since Putin has bigger ambitions and perceives the West to be weak, he chose the more traditional path to empire.

Unfortunately, it looks like this is exactly what some in the West wanted him to do.

The Stories That Send Us To War

I was not expecting Russia to invade Ukraine like this, but I had not been listening to the stories that the Russians were telling each other. Nor did I hear what Kremlin advisors were telling Putin.

These stories are what send us to war. Every war that America has ever fought, started with a story, and too many of them had little connection with reality. Look closely at other wars, and you’ll see that they too started with a story.

Worse, we have taken up story telling in our churches, without checking whether they are true.

The Drums of War and Famine

The drums of war were louder this week – in ways that sounded a lot like those ‘weapons of mass destruction’ claims that led to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. And, this drive towards conflict almost drowned out a more subtle and deadly voice:

Famine

Because our governments are run by the worst possible leaders (see The Peter Principle), we will get the worst possible outcome. And, I had been hoping for a less cartoonish response from those sending us to war.

I was also hoping for more time before this future became so obvious.
