Thomas Barnett



I love this guy. I think I may have to join the military now.

Impressive talk, although I think he leaves a lot to be desired with regards to globalization as an environmental issue (which Friedman pays heed to). I think it'd be interesting to hear his thoughts on the current global financial crisis and how that relates to the "gap" and China's rise to power. From what I've read, I don't believe we have the capacity to just keep growing out of control, I think we're being forced into a path of sustainability. But I thoroughly agree with the idea of technology transfer and globalization as a tenant of brighter future for the environment.

Anyway. I think I see a lot where the Navy fits in to your future in this (and some of the other philosophies and ideas that excite you). I don't know if you can check e-mail from bootcamp--probably not, but I wish you well. Go change the world!
