Join the SciTech Futures Team and the NATO Innovation Hub as we continue our latest exercise, “Envisioning NATO Operations in 2040“. We’re asking key questions about NATO and the world in 20 years. To gain inspiration, we’ve partnered with a leading futurist author to explore this world through three short vignettes. Explore the challenges NATO will face in 2040, and help shape their response with your ideas.
Join us and the S&T foresight community in exploring these questions and more, 19 February to 1 March 2020 online at
Platitudes without integrity. This is the 2018 Mattis version but this is what the good people trapped in the bad system called the Pentagon are working with. This “strategy” lacks integrity, is divorced from reality, does not do true cost economics, and is not helpful to American security.
This book brings together three monographs on grand strategy, global reality, and re-inventing the U.S. Army as well as the rest of the Department of Defense — and in passing addressing needed changes in diplomacy, development, and intelligence, all of which are just as broken as the military.
The U.S. military today is 50% waste, committing crimes against humanity in over 100 countries — alongside CIA drone assassination operations — and generally not able to win a war nor maintain a peace. Our generals and admirals are not being held accountable for telling the truth — they are themselves sadly divorced from reality and unable to appreciate the truth even when it is presented to them.
