Realpolitik and the New Great Game


Last week we talked about the New Great Game in Central Asia. Unfortunately there are lot of theories among people we meet about Central Asia but few seem to have grappled with the pervasive nature of the global paradigm shift. John begins with an extended boralogue on the nature of this realpolitik, which will shove many current ideologies off the table.

Part of the new paradigm involves warfare, unfortunately, and a growing number of mercenaries are at work around the world. We’ll talk to one of them to see what makes this industry tick. John Geddes is a career soldier and author of “The Road to Hell.”

Then we’ll continue our mini-series expounding the viewpoints of people who grew up in totalitarian societies and what their insights can teach Americans today. Hilmar von Campe ( was a member of the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth) and is author of “Defeating the Totalitarian Lie.”
