I’ve written previously the the real major story that explains many world events right now is demographics, not the Partisan politics of Brexit, Dutch housing policy, or anybody’s view of Trump. Unfortunately, it’s rare to see major, mainstream publication cover this.
As the saying goes, demographics is destiny.
Peter Zeihan is one of the few mainstream voices talking about countries such as Germany being on the verge of economic collapse due to demographics (for example this vdieo).
Digger deeper, here’s a horrendously glum video about the effects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Or this report from the Kyiv Independent, stating the Ukraine’s population is likely to drop to 35 million by 2030. Ukraine’s population at independence was 50 million.
