About Relative Bearings
Losing your way in the geopolitical world is not an easy to avoid task. Relative Bearings is a place to discuss political demographics and gain directional knowledge about the geographical foundations which affect the dynamics of that atmosphere.
Like a captain whose ship has gone off course, we must gain our bearing to point us to our destination. Relative Bearings looks at global neighborhoods of demographic, political, resource shift as a closed unifying system. Examining these dynamics we can draw from geographical principles and theory.
The friend of the present order of things condemns all political speculations in the gross. -Thomas Malthus
It has always been a personal amazement that, often, we do not consider the gravity of our actions on a day to day basis. Renowned American-Swiss geographer Waldo R. Tobler’s famous First Law of Geography states:
Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related to each other.
It is under this principal that we should consider where policy change and the quest for becoming more worldly citizens originates. Change starts with what you do, say and accomplish each day. Do you really have something to say? Speak for yourself and your network; your community.
