The Beatrice and Randolph Guthrie Lecture
Once again on the stage at the Society of the Four Arts, Peter Zeihan will continue to amaze us with his visionary geopolitical predictions and their historical context. His uncanny ability to see around corners has made Zeihan one of the most in-demand speakers of our time; in “War and Politics and the End of the World,” Zeihan will recap the rocky road since his 2023 lecture and illuminate a world where we are navigating increasing danger on seemingly peaceful seas.
