Brexit Part III: A glimmer of hope for mankind

I was driven to overcome my dyslexia and commit my ideas to paper in “Breaking the Code of History” because I feared for all of our children's future.

The rise of President Xi Jinping

Those watching China will no doubt be both impressed and surprised by the rise of President Xi.

Since his arrival he has conducted a powerful and relentless drive to remove corruption, using the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI). This far reaching campaign has in reality been a cloak to consolidate Xi's power as head of the party, PLA, and government.This policy has been paralleled by his increasing control over the media and growing personality cult which has nicknamed him Uncle Xi or Xi Dada.

The mosquito war

Mankind has caused 322 animal extinctions in the past 500 years (with two-thirds of those in the last two centuries). Sadly, this is an inevitable consequence of man's success and unconscious expansion across the globe which has modified numerous habits. There is, however, no example of mankind waging a war against another species. However, maybe the time has come to start with the mosquito?

The Japanese rebirth Part II: Foreign policy and investment strategy

The levers of economic and military strength will not be sufficient to ablate China’s powerful military growth. Additionally, Japan will need to engage in a new form of foreign policy, reaching out to the nations that China values as important in its strategic construct. Japan must then seek to build political alliances similarly to the way the Chinese have done with investment capital and technology. Britain seems an immediate candidate for Japan, as it has mistakenly courted China for money and especially nuclear technology that Japan could readily provide.

The Japanese rebirth Part I: The growth of the economy and armed forces

There is a long history of rivalry and warfare between China and Japan. The wars between these two great nations date back to the Baekje–Tang War (660–663). Then much later, they include the Mongol invasions of Japan in 1274 and 1281 that failed on land and sea, in no small part by the two typhoons faced by the Mongol fleets, from which the word kamikaze ("divine wind") was derived. Next, it was Japan’s turn to be the aggressor with the invasion of Korea (1592–1598) as a first step to an invasion of Ming China.

Understanding the Chinese expansion to empire: Part I China's strategy of resource acquisition

One of the key focuses in Breaking The Code Of History (BTCH) was that China since 1996 has been in the most dynamic second phase of empire cycle, which is aptly described as ‘expansion to empire’. This process is an almost exponential expansion of economic and military power which is driven internally to expand into the vacuum created by older powers in decline, in this case, America.

Brexit Part II: Britain's choice

It may surprise many to know that Britain, the once greatest empire within the Super Western Christian Empires, has been in a new national cycle of expansion since the Suez Crisis. It was extremely lucky to have Margret Thatcher to kick-start the process and inject vigour into a nation. She catalysed a much needed British new work ethic that separates us from Europe. From 1979 to 1997, over almost two decades, Britain enjoyed the policies of wealth creation and once more grew in economic status.

Brexit Part I: The European demise

So, will Britain stay or leave the EU in 2016? To answer the question, I will summarise the points that I have made over the past few years about Europe and the position of Britain on the empire cycle and predict the most obvious outcome.

Trump will be the next American president

I have been watching the American presidential race with great fascination, as the principles of social dynamics explained within BTCH play so clearly out within the cycle of the American empire.
