World Peace for a Century - 2020 to 2120


Recommended Posts

The civilised world collapsed in summer 1914 because an elite was clueless.

The US must agree to peace in Ukraine.

The US must agree that Taiwan is part of China.

Israel, Lebanon? A distraction.

====

Truman and Kennan- not Roosevelt - created a world of peace in 1945.

 

We have many environmental issues. 

True, I agree.

For a century after 1815, there was a structure of peace between States - and as a result, ordinary people lived far better. We discovered so much.

I am thankful that the US and NATO defeated the Soviet Union in 1989.

In 2020, we need a new structure of peace. We have many problems to solve.

One major problem is the USA thinks they can police the world, while internally the USA rots.

Let me explain.

In your own way, you Americans will solve your rising/increasing government debt-to-GDP problem.

And since Clinton, Bush, Obama, you Americans will stop your world police/change the world obsession.

The rest of the world does not care if Trump is your president.

Nice of you not to give the people of Ukraine or Taiwan any say in the matter.

We no longer face the Soviets. Reagan won.

We now live in a multipolar world. 

So we now live in a world where people don't have the right to determine their own future? Is that what Reagan intended?

 

Unlike the current GOP, I don't believe Reagan would have turned his back on Ukraine or Taiwan.

Aristides,

Let each State decide its own affairs.

In 2024, we are in a place to create a century of place.

Like in 1815, States must make arrangements so that ordinary people can live well.

I think the opposite is true. Russia will not stop with Ukraine and China will not stop with Taiwan. They are already building artificial islands and claiming the whole South China Sea as territorial waters even though it borders  the Philippines, Viet Nam and Indonesia.

Aristides,

To me, this Ukraine War is like the Balkan Wars

Putin wants to rebuild the Russian Empire, he is ex KGB. The people of Ukraine don't give a crap what you think, it's their country, not yours.

What a load of bullshit: just give it all to psycho bandits and hope they'll leave you in peace. Or now that they see that you're weak they'll come for more. Every time. Which one would it be? Guess.

Centuries, millennia of memories, expeience: all for nothing. Yes it's possible: just look.

I disagree.

But even if you are correct, we're back to 1815.

We need a new order of peace - Kissinger, Nixon style

What we need and get will be two different things. 

We need a world in which politicians are under ordinary people's thumbs, not the other way around.

What we'll likely get however is billions dead and an intereggnum that lasts for centuries....maybe forever.

I figure tardigrades will be the ones piloting starships from Earth one day. Not us.

Eyeball, AG,

After 1815, there was a structure of peace. Ordinary people lived well from 1815-1914.

In 1914, this structure fell apart - the elite killed itself, and for ordinary people, the next thirty years were a disaster.

IMHO: We must avoid this catastrophe.

I was very curious about these questions.

I went to these places where Roosevelt met Stalin. Yalta.

Potsdam. Truman. I walked around. Looked

Like walking around an ancient city ruin, it gives a perspective.

There appears to only be one leader who operated in the cold war, with any power or inclination to deploy tanks.  The NATO Countries can fund others to hold ground.

I'm hopeful that he will have to stop and accept his meager, but still illegal, gains.

If so, we'll have a much stronger NATO, a global tri-polar geopolitical order, and a much less starry eyed view of Fukyama's so called "end of history".

That will be your next 100 years peace.

The next century will deal with the global social sphere, environmental challenges and the twin forces of depopulation and automation.

....

One leader?

This is not the late 1940s with a duopoly.

Since the 1990s, America won.

Like it or not, we are back in a multi-polar world.
