ZEIHAN ON TRUMP AND OUR CONDITION
—“The Beauty, tragedy and irony of Donald Trump – is that he’s right.”—Peter Zeihan
We don’t need a global trade system, we don’t need and can’t lead, as a global hegemon.
You have to be able to provide global maritime security. If the Americans never add another Supercarrier, the rest of the world won’t catch up until 2240.
You have to have consumption. If people don’t buy the exports, you can’t do anything. The USA has a consumption based system. (He’s not answering how that’s no longer necessary – it’s what they consume given the demographics. we could consume CONQUEST if we wanted to.)
We have milennials (omfg) well at least they can pay taxes – but they are all alone in the night. The first world is now a retirement community. the financialization and redistribution caused a dysgenic population crash i our civilization.
But we can’t maintain it all – we haven’t got the population and QUALITY of population to do maintain superpower status.
Mexicans are the market – a partner.
Canada isn’t a partner it’s a dependent. There is nothing canada can do other than product dumping. Canada is a competitor.
You can’t run a first world economy without a work force – you have to automate. Japan did it. So you automate internally ship products and labor externally. and prevent the lower class problem.

We have to be the empire AND automate.
