This video looks at the future of civilizations, and how they might develop in different areas of the world. It also looks at the collapse of dominant civilizations, and how this can lead to the formation of new civilizations.
00:00:00 The historian Oswald Spangler predicts that civilizations will generally last for around 2,500 years, and that the current era is a "time of great change." He discusses the theory that civilizations fall when they no longer have the ability to provide cultural forms to deal with the world around them. Spangler points to ancient Egypt as an example of a civilization that fell when the surrounding world changed. In the modern world, he says, it is easy for foreign powers to conquer an isolated, geographically accessible country like Egypt.
Ground News is a useful tool for orienting oneself in a complex political and social landscape. It provides a single, unbiased source of news from up to 50,000 different sources. Spangler recommends that viewers read Carol Quigley's book, "Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time," to gain a better understanding of civilization patterns and why they may fall.
00:05:00 This video looks at civilizations of the future, and how they can form in areas under the influence of previous civilizations. It also looks at the collapse of dominant civilizations, and how the fall of Rome allowed the creation of Islamic, Western, and Orthodox civilizations. Eastern Europe is projected to have a collapse of the current civilization over the next couple centuries.
00:10:00 Zion argues that the world is going to end soon, and that the collapse of civilizations will be most prominent in Eastern Europe. He also predicts that a new, Muslim-led civilization will arise in the area.
00:15:00 The civilizations of the future will be in Africa, as the continent has few developed states and the best performing African countries are industrializing. Africa also has a large population and a lot of raw energy. There is potential for new civilizations to form in East Africa and Ethiopia.
00:20:00 In this video, futurist James Howard Kunstler discusses the potential for three civilizations to develop in East Africa: one based around Nigeria, one around East Africa Union (E.A.U.), and one around Johannesburg, South Africa. Kunstler predicts that Nigeria will not survive as a unified state, and that the other two civilizations will be based largely outside of Nigeria.
00:25:00 The civilizations of the future will face a period of pain, with Islam likely to be one of the most successful in adapting. New religions will develop to fill the spiritual void left by the collapse of modern East Asia.
00:30:00 In this video, historian and author Marc Morano discusses the various civilizations that will exist in the future, including an Anglo-dominated space empire. He also predicts that Cuba, Mexico, and Australia will become part of the Anglo world in the future.
00:35:00 This video introduces the idea of civilizations developing on different planets and in different universes. It asks what would be a fault test for such a civilization, and suggests that Patreon subscribers should watch additional content.
