For decades, the Canadian system has been the world’s most friendly to would-be immigrants. But just because the model has worked does not mean it will always work.
Rising trends in national disintegration in the late globalization age haven’t so much swamped the Canadian system, but instead changed the nature of its inward migrants. Increasingly, foreigners have stopped looking to live in Canada, but simply want their money to reside there. That works to a point. That point raises the cost of living in Canada to beyond that of most Canadians, and now Canada is having to at least partially close the door…
…just as Canada needs a fundamentally new social model.
Here at Zeihan On Geopolitics we select a single charity to sponsor. We have two criteria:
First, we look across the world and use our skill sets to identify where the needs are most acute. Second, we look for an institution with preexisting networks for both materials gathering and aid distribution. That way we know every cent of our donation is not simply going directly to where help is needed most, but our donations serve as a force multiplier for a system already in existence. Then we give what we can.
Today, our chosen charity is a group called Medshare, which provides emergency medical services to communities in need, with a very heavy emphasis on locations facing acute crises. Medshare operates right in the thick of it. Until future notice, every cent we earn from every book we sell in every format through every retailer is going to Medshare’s Ukraine fund.
And then there’s you.
Our newsletters and videologues are not only free, they will always be free. We also will never share your contact information with anyone. All we ask is that if you find one of our releases in any way useful, that you make a donation to Medshare. Over one third of Ukraine’s pre-war population has either been forced from their homes, kidnapped and shipped to Russia, or is trying to survive in occupied lands. This is our way to help who we can. Please, join us.
