I tend to agree with Mr. Zeihan that geographical and demographic challenges will overwhelm the CCP and that China is not as united a country as we have been lead to believe.

Disunited Nations: The Scramble for Power in an Ungoverned World by Peter Zeihan

The coming end of American hegemony will be good for America, but disastrous for much of the world, according to this sweeping treatise on international relations. Zeihan (The Accidental Superpower), a geopolitical strategy consultant, predicts that a United States weary of foreign entanglements will stop enforcing the post-WWII global “order” in which it guaranteed the military security of allies, kept sea lanes open, and welcomed exports from developing countries. What follows, he contends, will be pervasive disorder, in which some nations flourish — including a rich, isolated United States — as others face political chaos, economic regression, war, and famine caused by the breakdown of global supply chains and international cooperation. Zeihan pegs his arguments to in-depth discussions of the geography and agricultural, economic, and demographic trends of major countries and their impact on regional rivalries. — Publishers Weekly
