1-Jan-17 World View -- Taiwan's president responds to military threats from China


Did Taiwan's president say that Taiwan is 'an independent, sovereign country'?

If only the Chinese would send Kerry an email claiming to be an ousted Nigerian prince just enter your email password and the fortune can be yours!, then we'd really see tough guy Obama lay the smack down. Oh well.

What are the chances of a palace coup in North Korea? Can GD predict the likelihood of coups? North Korea seems to be highly unstable now.

Generational Dynamics can predict the attitudes and behaviors of
entire populations or entire generations. Individuals have free will,
so it's impossible to predict the attitudes and behaviors of
individuals or small groups of people. So a coup cannot be predicted.

John, as you should be well aware, "free will" is an illusion.

It seems like things are really heating up here. Could war break out in Northern Asia in 2017? Japan is upgrading relations and cooperation with Taiwan. Should I leave Northern Asia?

John, sorry to be so cryptic. You wrote, "individuals have free will..." and my comment was directed at that statement. Fro further discussion, here are Jerry Coyne and Sam Harris on the illusion of "free will."
