Zeihan on UK -- is this an accurate description of where the UK now finds itself?

(In which case, why would we want to trade with them?)

Alexander Dugin on Moscow Delhi axis

"Alexander Dugin argues that the Moscow-Delhi axis is one of the most crucial supporting frameworks of a multipolar world order.

Modi and Putin are currently defining the structure of the Moscow-Delhi axis, one of the most crucial pillars of a multipolar world order. Bharat (also known as India) is a state-civilization. Russia-Eurasia is another state-civilization. Clarifying their relations in terms of geopolitics, economics, and culture is fundamental.

We are all now learning to think in multipolar terms, which is a nonlinear system.

A multipolar world is unstable. Like in gravity 3 body and higher body problems has no stable solution. I believe regardless of India's role the political universe we inhabit will tend to form 2 blocks.

These blocks will ebb and flow in influence. I believe today the world partitions into a Chinese bloc and an American Bloc. 50 years ago it partitioned into Russian and American Bloc. 100 years ago it was Axis Bloc vs Allied Bloc

In all such bloc partitions India has remarkably always been on the fence. A decider of outcomes if you see carefully

This Russ bonhomie sounds ok until Putin. What’s to say the next guy isn’t a Han stooge ? I would game that scenario as well and expect more adversity coming up

Nonsense, that's like saying a free-market economy with multiple players is unstable.
These things can certainly be stable - certainly a Multi-Polar World can be stable - when the players communicate with each other.
It's a Uni-Polar world that is ultimately unstable, as the hegemon sucks the life out of everyone else, including its own people.
Because even a hegemon's own people aren't spared from suffering under the hegemony, whose power will keep concentrating itself more compactly to preserve itself, as everything else withers and rots beneath it.

These blocks will ebb and flow in influence. I believe today the world partitions into a Chinese bloc and an American Bloc. 50 years ago it partitioned into Russian and American Bloc. 100 years ago it was Axis Bloc vs Allied Bloc

The Chinese are aging rapidly. Their economic numbers have dropped badly in recent times, and are behind India's growth numbers.
Go online and see numerous (Chinese-funded) videos emphatically saying that India can never be another China, India can't compete with China, etc.
Methinks They Doth Protest Too Much. Seems a nerve has been with them. They're obviously feeling the pain and are scared.
More than ever, they feel they're on shakier ground.
