Let’s play a little game…picture a country that is ruled by one man – now imagine that country is so geographically isolated that its regions and people have little-to-no integration – now add in some horrendous wealth inequality. Can you guess what is keeping that country together?
FORCE. And as soon as that force is challenged, everything falls apart. The Chinese people have had enough of the zero-COVID policy, and large protests are opening the doors for much larger discussions to take shape.
China is looking down the wrong end of a double-barrel shotgun. One barrel – loaded with a rolling series of government breakdowns. The other – loaded with a tightening grip of Xi Jinping. No matter which side goes off, China will be sent into a spiral of self-destruction.
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.
