“It’s difficult to make predictions, especially about the future”. Mark Twain.
The book is extremely interesting, informative and based on a very broad knowledge base.
However, it seems to me the author went a bit too far with his prediction of what is going to happen to a super complex system upon a very large number of interruptions.
What also caught my eye is that much of the book leads to the same conclusion, no matter which angle things are inspected from, which can be summarized: “USA good. China bad.” Or even: “USA good. Not USA bad.”
When all things lead to the same conclusion it makes me suspect that this is not a mere scientific endeavor, but also an ideologically driven one as well. I am not saying this is what it is, just that it smells like it.
Last, I heard Zeihan speak over-confidently about vax side effects being fake Russian and Chinese propaganda. As I know first and second hand of such cases and heard world-class scientists in relevant fields discuss them, it makes me wander about some other things he is super confident about.
