The End of China

by Peter Zeihan on November 30, 2022

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.
