I am Peter Zeihan, a geopolitical strategist, futurist and author the new book Disunited Nations. AMA

Hello Reddit! I am a geopolitical strategist and forecaster. I have spent the past few decades trying to answer one very big question: What happens when the Americans get tired of maintaining the international system, pack up and head home? That work led me to assemble my new book, Disunited Nations: The Scramble for Power in an Ungoverned World. I'm here to answer your questions.

So AMA about my work in geopolitics. There is no corner of the world – geographically or economically – that I’ve not done at least some work. So bring it on: India, Russia, Argentina, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Sweden, Thailand, demographics, nuclear weapons, hypersonics, hacking, drones, oil, solar, banking, assembly lines, dairy, pickles (seriously, I’ve given a presentation on pickles) and on and on. I do about 100 presentations a year, and every presentation forces me to relearn the world from a new point of view so that I can then help my audience see what is in their future.

However, there are a few things I do not do. I don't pick sides in political squabbles or make policy recommendations or recommend stock picks. I provide context. I play forward the outcomes of choices. I help people, companies and governing institutions make informed decisions. What is done with that is up to the audience. Right now, that’s you.

That said, I would love for someone to stump me today – it’s how I get better. =]

I'll sign on at 3pm EST and start answering your questions.

My Review of "Disunited Nations" by Peter Zeihan

I will try to keep this as concise as I can, while also trying to point out the pros and cons of this book.

If I were to summarize this book, I’d say it is an geopolitical explanation and prognosis of how and why the US will remain the global hegemon in the 21st century, as well as how and why the countries that we believe would overtake the US will actually not do so.

Overall, I think I can say that Zeihan did a great job in outlining, with good accuracy, the following:

1) What it takes to be a superpower on the level of the US today, practically speaking: the kind of superpower that the US is is different from the β€œsuperpowers” of the past, like Ming Dynasty China, Achaemenid Persia, or the Roman Empire. America as a superpower today is probably taken for granted by many people (I certainly did), and it is nice to be reminded of the enormous leverage and influence necessary to be what the US is.

2) How we got here: this is related to the first point, as it helps us understand the historical developments that led to American global hegemony. The kind of domination that America maintains in the world today is not something that can be achieved easily at all; in fact, it requires political skill, geopolitical prudence, a powerful military, a strong economic foundation, a strong socio-political culture…and quite a bit of luck. The first and this second point really convinced me to not take too seriously the people who claim nowadays that China will overtake the US and become the β€œoverlord” in the world. Zeihan outlines the enormous geopolitical and military challenges that would require China to do so, and convinced me that such an enterprise is almost impossible for them.

3) The extent to which geography leads to success or failure of nations: in his analyses of different nations, the first item which he touches on is their geographies. While I am not an expert at all in understanding the extent to which navigable rivers influence economic success (something which Zeihan mentions a lot), I can imagine how geographic locations of nations prescribe a certain destiny for them. For example, Germany or Russia are in very precarious positions β€” and they always has been β€” due to their need to defend against enemies their eastern and western borders (and at times the south too) simultaneously. The US does not have this problem, since they are almost like an island nation β€” but even better β€” because they are flanked by huge oceans on the east and we

In Victoria 2 HPM, Can somebody give me the tags for all of the possible disunited states nations, and can you also tell/show me where they spawn?

I plan on doing a play through where I play as a couple of disunited states nations. However, I can’t find the id for the event to fire, so can somebody just tell me what all of the possible disunited states nations tags are, and can you tell me all of the provinces where each nation spawns (or maybe take a screenshot to show me)? Thanks.

"Let’s say it plainly: This is how nations lose their power & influence, when they are unable to agree even on basic matters such as diplomatic representation. The decision-making system breaks down, and the public is too bored or disunited to take action. Sadly, that’s a snapshot of the US in 2014" washingtonpost.com/opinio…
