Who runs the world? Political scientist Ian Bremmer argues it's not as simple as it used to be. With some eye-opening questions about the nature of leadership, he asks us to consider the impact of the evolving global order and our choices as participants in the future of democracy.

in canada our government has algorithmic control of the whole internet and the govt funds almost all media. One example of how this works is the speaker said "trucker riots in canada" The only violence committed was from a Trudeau supporter that smashed his vehicle into three peaceful trucker supporters. The truckers were 100% peaceful. Why do people think Canada is even a democracy with the government having algorithmic control? This speaker sides with the government funded disinformation.

@@rustymaximus9179 I have a feeling it's more because the intelligentsia is more familiar with tech and pushes for further integration. Intelligentsia from both the Conservative and Liberal sides of the political factions push for people to inform others of their views and to "Re-educate" those who do not agree. This can be seen in certain arguments made across the last decade; The "Me too" movement had Liberals telling people that women were being oppressed in the workplace, while true, the statement spiraled and people radicalized. The Conservatives in response pushed for "Re-educating" the liberals, stating that the statistics were overreported, that there wasn't actually a problem; and that the wage gap was a lie made up by Liberal lies to trick their fellow man. The Conservatives rather recently have push for an "ALM" approach, trying to limit abortions and "inform" BLM protestors that their actions were unjustified. The ALM was originally proposed in the spirit of saving those who have not had a chance to live yet and called for a sense of responsibility for ones own actions. Liberals in response decried these statements as against the constitution and an afront to human individuality and freedom of expression and choice, they then pushed for ALM protestors to be harassed and thus they were, conservatives in return had ALM protestors harass BLM and "Pro-Choice" protestors. Harassment from both liberal and conservatives has lead to radical micro-factions gaining power and taking action against their perceived Opposers; leading to shootings, rioting, burglary, assault and so much more. Hundreds of people have died at the words of a politician or impassioned speaker urging radical groups on. The January 6th Insurrection has lead to a lack of trust in the USA, due to the highly polarized and radicalized political environment, it also shows how a few words spoken by a politician, whether intentionally aimed at radicalizing a mob or not; can create situations that only compound in difficulty to settle. In conclusion, don't put people in boxes; or suddenly they'll start attuning to radical elements within that box and it'll be both yours and societies fault.

"Because each of us are now globally connected, we have to learn how to be friendly and positively engaging each other, ...": This will not happen, unless you remove the root cause of our current self destruction behaviour: overpopulation. This will only be addressed if we allow our genes (of everybody) to be changed artificially, which would make us no longer want to have a religion and no longer want to have as many offspring as possible.

BRICS seeks to create a new currency, considering gold's historical role as a store of value and medium of exchange. However, the functionality and acceptance of a gold-backed currency in the current global financial system are uncertain. Creating a new currency requires careful consideration of economic, political, and logistical factors.
@AntonioBianh 7 ай бұрын
The discussions and proposals surrounding BRICS nations' potential use of gold are intriguing. People choose to buy gold for various reasons, such as its historical role as a store of value and medium of exchange, its potential as a hedge against inflation or currency devaluation, and its relative scarcity compared to other commodities. Gold also offers diversification benefits to investment portfolios due to its low correlation with stocks and bonds.

As a Russian citizen who works for a government enterprise, I can say that I have never met a person under 50 years old who was angry or in any way raised the question of whether Russia is a superpower. It is obvious to any reasonable person that we are technologically 20 years behind the Western world, that our economy is based mainly on the sale of natural resources, the money from which is spent extremely inefficiently. Until these two fundamental problems are resolved, there is no point in talking about Russia's global status. Our country is now saved from falling completely behind leading countries only by the decline of Western civilization and the social degradation of its representatives. Those who can overcome their problems earlier will take leading positions in the coming decades.

Даже не смотря на все проблемы которые есть у России, экономика России все равно одна из самых крупных в Мире, и Россия всё равно является одной из великих держав, в которую в феврале 2022 года приезжал Макрон и Шольц на поклон, чтобы вести переговоры с Путиным. Россия это одна из крупнейших экономик, которая смогла построить собственную систему банковских транзакций и теневой танкерный флот, так что санкции и отключение от Мировой банковской системы нам были ни по чём, а деньги граждан России теперь не могут утекать за границу и будут так или иначе вкладываться в нашу экономику, какой бы неэффективной она не была. Советская экономика тоже была неэффективной и убыточной, потому что в условиях запрета импортных товаров и тотальной государственной монополии не может быть иначе, но это гарантирует независимость от кого либо. И это постепенно будет строиться в России, хотя от частной собственности мы не собираемся отказываться. Россия вполне влиятельная региональная держава, но да, не глобальная

Professors Martin Gilens (Princeton University) and Benjamin I. Page (Northwestern University) looked at more than 20 years worth of data to answer a simple question: Does the government represent the people? Their study took data from nearly 2000 public opinion surveys and compared it to the policies that ended up becoming law. In other words, they compared what the public wanted to what the government actually did. What they found was extremely unsettling: The opinions of 90% of Americans have essentially no impact at all.

Perhaps,but as it says, 'there is nothing new under the sun.' Is not domination of political processes by wealthy elites par for the course? Indeed the space occupied by 'democratic' concerns or 'democratic' exercises along the historical continuum is very, very small. Furthermore definition of the word 'democracy' is uncertain. One might as well admit that 'democracy' is in the eye of the beholder. I do not mean to suggest that autocracy or totalitarianism are preferable or worthy of admiration! I know quite a few emigrants from the PRC, who may go back to visit but choose to raise their families on this side of the pond. But government by its very nature, is oligarchic, setting a few in positions of authority over the many. Only among tightly-knit small communities should we expect to find some exceptions. Elections are usually considered a defining feature of political 'democracy'. Yet technically hese are usually dominated by political parties, which unless sponsored directly by the State are private organizations. The Word of God, the Bible, does not endorse any particular political system as good for all times and places. The authority which governments exercise is delegated not from 'the people', but from God, and they are accountable to Him for their actions. (Psalm 24:1) The earth is the Lord's, and all it contains; the world, and those who dwell in it.'

Given your avatar, you are the exact product this video right here talked about. A son of algorithms rather than reason, because you choose to believe in whatever relative truth you want rather than the actual facts of the world. The US has distanced itself from exerting that kind of control for ages. And if you don't understand that then that only means that you're not aware of the world financial and political policies the US backed from. Allowing for more choice. Hence why the US right now is in the position where it has to regain friends in areas of the world which it had previously dominated 40 to 50 years ago. It is okay to not know about this, nor understand it. What isn't ok is to pretend you understand it and then throw whatever statement to support your own personal beliefs, beliefs that rely on ignorance. Then again, ignorance also means being unaware. Conclusion being if you are really this unaware, then you're never going to be aware of how unaware you are. Therefore, you are the exact product this video right here talked about.

Cops beat them way past the point they would have to. I'm talking about videos of them punching out people that were down and said they surrender to any charges. the truckers were peaceful.

Due to a lack of information from cultural difference people were not as collectively polarized on a global scale. You are right, humans just doing human things. Starting with WW1 we saw how countries would pick sides, as countries developed more larger world powers would be more considerate of them and they would be forced to pick sides. I see it as a responsibility of this generation to step back and really be objective. People are too caught up in their own opinion to think of what is realistic and what matches their own ideals. I'm not too optimistic, but it does take a collective self-awareness that I do believe may be achievable with the next generation. Most people born today will probably never achieve it.

A really good series of books that look at what humans would do if we have access to infinite number of parallel earths whose exploration is headed by a tech giant with more power than most governments. I'm on book 2 right now, and it is depressing how even with infinite resources, humans still make war based on greed and outdated ideology. Also, the earth's government uses tech to control the long earth, which gives the tech company unparalelled access and power in the parallel earths, which is very similar to how governments are using big tech companies today. This series is very, very well written, but it puts the ugliness of human nature front and centre. Its written by Terry Pratchet and Stephen Baxter. Terry Pratchet had a way of critiquing modern society in the best ways possible and surprise me in his plots. I highly recommend all of his books.

To their capacity for critical analysis, to their politics, and their perceptions of reality. To their mental health.

​@@JTMarlin8 Lmao 🤣 Why does Islam attract more converts than any other religion? One major reason is that vIslam says: "refugees welcome" to those fleeing failing liberal social and religious institutions. Let me explain. Liberal secularists promote the idea that their norms for regulating marriage, family, and religion are ideal. Nevertheless, statistical data indicates that wherever a society is governed by liberal secular norms, people stop marrying, having children, and practising religion. Put differently, the liberal is fundamentally a hypocrite - despite what he or she might say, no liberal person is actually interested in being part of a liberal marriage, a liberal family, or a liberal religion. Matters are different when it comes to Islam. Muslims also promote the idea that their norms for regulating marriage, family, and religion are ideal. Moreover, statistical data indicates that wherever a society is governed by Islamic norms, it boosts marriage, birth rate, and religious practice. Put differently, the Muslim is actually interested in being part of a Muslim marriage, a Muslim family, and the Muslim religion. The current era is an era of refugees fleeing from liberalism. Liberal marriage, family, and religion have collapsed. As a result, refugees from liberal societies seek marriage partners abroad, and if they practice any type of religion , it is a non-liberal version whose centers are located abroad. Islam is the most obvious choice for them.

Friedman was an idiot. If you operate any society on his principles, it will inevitably tend toward pollution, labor abuse, cronyism and police state actions. I'm 100 percent for enterpreneurship and actually would revise the tax system to encourage it, but to make profit, rather than quality service created by people in dignity, the sole determinant of your company's success is to render it no different than a malaria-ridden mosquito sucking the blood out of its victims and infecting them with a fever. Which is pretty much what has happened in the West -- we keeping having one fight after another over wealth-sharing, rents, pensions, etc., because people really think they can divorce their economic achievement from the wider health of a society. Even the robber barons of yore had more common sense than Friedman and knew they had to use their wealth to support education, health care and the arts if they wanted to ensure the society that gave them the opportunity to become wealthy survived.

To be a superpower you have to be a team - not politically fractured. To be a superpower all segments of the economy have to work to improve the country - not tear it down or cash out healthy companies for a payday putting millions out of work. Soldiers have to believe in what they are fighting for. Soldiers have to know their country has their back. Citizens must believe in their country and shed a tear now and again when national anthem is played. Personally, I feel the United States is struggling on all these requirements.

What india is doing by brining democratised technology platforms such as ONDC, UPI, Skill India Digital, and many other in pipeline is answer to a more democratised and multipolar society. The western countries including USA is far behind this thinking as they are dominated by few monopolistic companies such as Amazon, FB, etc. In my humble opinion India in next decade will become exporter of democratic and decentralised technology tools which will help governments fight the might of monopolistic technology tools.

We've seen the two technology futures Mr. Bremmer has proposed featured prominently in sci-fi for decades. On the optimistic side, you have entries like _Star Trek_ where, despite the worst of our baser nature inflicting havoc on our species and planet, we were able to learn and grow alongside our technological advancements to forge a better society. On the pessimistic side, you have series like _Blade Runner_ and _Cyberpunk 2077_ where corporations and the economies they create are the government in all but name. Ethics and basic means for survival become malleable, controlled commodities to sell to increasingly impoverished masses desperate for any escape from the dystopia they cannot escape. And they will insulate themselves with seemingly endless layers of physical, legal, and digital defenses to ensure nobody but them gains access to their kingdoms. There's also other variations on this scale, like _Metal Gear Solid_ and _Metal Gear Rising_ with mankind's own nature and desire for control literally becoming digital overlords that try controlling the very chaos of their existence. It doesn't last forever, obviously, but the impact it leave on the world creates opportunities both good and ill (depending on how those wielding such power). It'll be interesting to see what end of the spectrum the next few decades will place us on.

Summa summarum: Ian Bremmer discusses the power of technology companies and outlines three potential scenarios for the global digital order: a technology cold war, a new form of globalization, and a techno-polar world order. He emphasizes the potential consequences of these scenarios, such as power dynamics shifting towards tech companies, a potential digital divide along national lines, and ethical issues arising from current advertising models. Bremmer's talk underscores the need for accountability among tech companies due to their increasing influence on the future of the global society.

I don't agree with these dangerous ideas that implicitly decrease the politics responsibilities as the power is supposed to be nowadays in the hands of digital firms...power always was, is and will be manly in the hands of few businessmen, and always among these the ones in the army industries firms. Democracy is a tool that allows more people to share slices of power and change sometimes the decisions balance. Obviously the others actors involved in the power sharing try to always increase their influence to reach their objectives. So the point is how the People should try to regain some power, so how to reinforce the democracy... maybe introducing some limitations to all kinds of business power, and in particular to the ones operating in the digital sector, but even more on the military industries...

I am sure that proximity was part of it, but it points out that a trade relationship doesn't preclude a conflict. My second thought is that the actions of a cyber-actor could provoke (intentionally or not) either a security conflict or an economic one or both.

You are correct that intensive trade relations do not always preclude military conflict. Therefore the free-trade Manchester School was wrong, and the E.U. has achieved something rather unique by imposing upon its members a limited degree of political integration. I thought that the Russians had prided themselves on their proficiency as cyber-actors. Perhaps they oversold their abilities in multiple departments. Or, as I heard one of their propagandists say, ,just wait until they start trying hard. Sure, Putin accepted all those casualties to show that he can box a feisty midget with one hand tied behind his back. Nice show, Vlad, but th mothers aren't happy.
