Encouraged by the question regarding Australian politics (which has been such a volatile mess over the last decade), may I request some thoughts about NZ politics? I realise that we are peanuts compared to the rest of the world, but I think that NZ offers some hope of human centered progressive politics. Our right wing party is probably more like the Dems of USA. And our left wing parties would probably seem extreme left. We have an interesting coalition government which can be tricky at times.
I was looking for the original prediction, but I’m not finding it. I’ll keep looking – Did a search in the 2017-2018 area for submarine, but nothing was matching. I remember the prediction because there was concern in the news about the ability to cut of undersea cables and Guam was under threat from North Korea missile launches at the time. The prediction was something like a submarine is in the news.
