Sacrifice Zones, What the Left Thinks of You, Faux Adventurism, Mayor Pete, The Libertarian Party Disaster, and the Bird Flu

Doug Casey's Take [ep.#327]

In today’s episode, Doug shares details from leftist intelligentsia magazines. As you’ll see, it’s clear the left is eager to sacrifice everything you care about "for the greater good".

One concept jumped out: The cold war era idea of "Sacrifice Zones".

Sacrifice zones are areas designated low value by the elite. The idea is that by sacrificing certain areas, a country can concentrate its limited defensive resources on protecting its most vital areas, such as major population centers, key industrial regions, and, of course, political/military command posts.

At one point middle America was the sacrifice zone. Today, it seems to have expanded to all of Western Civ.
