I know people did. The point was about that particular map.
Independence for the Sun I say!
No one ever made a map for this afaik but:
The thing is: There actually are places on the list that are pleasant and livable. But I have discovered some more falsehoods there (AFAIK):
"Ample rain" in Kimberley? I thought that this area of Australia was barren desert?
"Rich jungle-like vegetation" near or in Aklavik (on the Mackenzie river)? Possibly, there is vast Taiga, but otherwise? At least "huge animal herds" is correct if you refer to caribou and/or musk oxen.
Yeah, as someone who lives in Canada, I cannot honestly expressed how much I found that funny
Well, yes, my phrasing was a bit of an overreaction in the other direction, but given how they keep describing all the goodies of those ten proposals one can't help but wonder why those areas aren't already heavily settled when they are so wonderful locations to live in?
China "cooperating" with Japan? Unlikely.
Mhm, not sure about Finland and Baltics... but I am pretty sure that this guy don´t plan to add Balkan to Africa... But I don´t read anything from him yet so maybe wrong...
Right. Is its capital Bangkok or something?
Also, the Middle East, Turkey, and the Balkans should probably be their own region.
Wouldn't recommend bothering, the guy is openly a National Bolshevik (aka a literal CommuNazi). His 'theories' are, to put it mildly, not very good. They're a lot more about what he wants to happen than they are about actually trying to objectively hypothesise the future. Kind of like that George Friedman dude, who's theories about the next 100 years can be summed up as 'American political dominance forever' - which I'm sure has nothing to do with his Neocon political stance.
Oh I own his book! It's interesting stuff, really. Probably way off but interesting nonetheless
Romania? Totally African.
Bahamas? Latin as hell.
Turkey? Basically the same as India.
China? More southeast Asian than a bathtub full of Pho.
Makes perfect sense.
An English version? Where did you get it?
Oh no, I meant Friedman
Ah, I see. I should maybe read his work as well, though I'm really only interested in reading Dugin given the infiltration of his ideas in the highest echelons of the Russian military.
I looked, and you can probably find a few books by Dugin on Barnes and Noble. I found one called the Fourth Political Theory (as I remember it off the top of my head)
More of a proposal that sort of happened but then failed.
I used that bad boy so many times in timelines
hey man, dont suppose you have one of these with labels? say numbers in each bubble and then a list of these groups names? never been able to find such a version of said map myself, which is a shame because itd be very useful for making a myriad of timelines
Separate names with a comma.
