The Great Game of Politics is Not What You Think

by | Jul 23, 2022

It’s tempting to think of geopolitics as a chess game – a game of strategy and goal achievement invented by the Iranians and perfected by the Russians, says Tom Loungo at the Ron Paul Institute’s Houston Conference. However, this model is not adequate as it distills geopolitics down to just a two player game. The best game to understand geopolitics is the ancient Chinese game called “go.”
