In this exciting SuperSalon, join Samo Burja Founder of Bismark Analysis and the author of the upcoming book on Great Founder Theory, to discuss “Live vs Dead” players in the game of empire and politics – with a particular focus on the past, present, and future of Russia.
“It’s much easier to detect live players than it is to detect dead players. This is because seemingly dead players might actually be alive (and playing dead).”
~ Samo Burja
Samo is a respected writer on history, institutions, and strategy with a focus on exceptional leaders that create new social and political forms, best known for systematising his approach to macro analysis of human society and systems into “Great Founder Theory which explores and explains why there has never been an immortal human civilisation; and what makes some societies more sustainable and durable than others.
Now, as the world’s eyes rest on Russia and China and their respective moves against the general “Western Consensus,” we have invited Samo to explain how his ideas can help explain and even predict the outcomes of current affairs. In particular, his ideas around “live vs dead” players, which he distinguishes as: “A live player is a person or well-coordinated group of people that is able to do things they have not done before. A dead player is a person or group of people that is working off a script, incapable of doing new things.” can shed particular light on the winners and losers of this particular moment in history.
Join Samo at our SuperSalon, hosted by futurist and economist, Bronwyn Williams to unpack these ideas with other curious minds…
