    Very interesting interview about the complex world we live in today. Wish he had covered the speed of change that is taking place. Would also be helpful to hear from someone who has thoughts as to how best to embrace these changes in a positive manner.

    +Sid V Is it immigration, or drug/gang member transportation and related flows? That statement caught me by surprise, actually.

    Sir, i have worked for years with the Border patrol, if you think immigration across the Mexican border is zero, you are smoking the funny weed. You are wildly wrong or listening to the Federal pronouncements which are frankly false.

    I think this was simply fantastic. Always great to hear insightful and relevant opinions - specially from people who I had not heard of before. I really enjoy these "non-financial" presentations and interviews - would love to have more of those here in RV. Great stuff!

    Any access to reports for the little guy? Not sure what these reports cost, but I would think very expensive. Things that make us go hmmmm?

    One of the best and thought provoking interviews I have ever had the pleasure to hear.i had never heard of this person before. A lot of my own views were given an order and validation in this interview. Well done this is the kind of interview that needs to be heard by the masses, unfortunately the masses don't want to hear it. Can you please advise how I can contact him, and are you aware of other articles or talks that he has given

    Excellent discussion. Thank you Mr. Smith for putting a lot of divergent ideas into perspective, at least for me. I will watch again and take notes this time. DLS

    Real Vision just continues to impress, especially in light of how great yesterday's interview was. Fascinating background to mix things up.

    Just an excellent interview. The interplay between hyper connectivity, innate human characteristics for decision making, tribalism and globalism all underlay one of the worst human conditions which is "dimunition in the level of expectation". Humans will deny the dimunntion and pretend it isn't/can't be occurring to an impossibly high degree before finally succumbing to an enormous Rage when realization finally sets in. Change is difficult enough, but dimnuitive expectation change is going to present some real challenges on both an individual and societal level as we move forward through this, indeed, new world order. Even Milton, as good a curator as he/she is, probably had top think twice as to whether to present this one to us. I, for one, am glad to have had the opportunity to view it!

    Great interview. Interesting and helpful. If you want flash bang recommendations they are not here, i.e. Thumbs Down. If you want to see thinking in action here is a good framework for thinking through risks. Great job.
