The flow of opinions about literally everything that happens is the suggestion that we are busy with geopolitics every day. Nothing is less true. In his new book Permafrost, Tom Zwitser explains what geopolitics is and why we look so different from what it really is.
While we have always learned that geopolitics is another word for foreign politics, Tom Zwitser shows that there are more dimensions to that understanding. Namely, the influence of its own citizens. Foreign policy is also internal politics. We need enemy images.
Permafrost is a guide to the information flow and can be read in several ways: as well as a handbook on current geopolitical events, but also as a handbook about today's harsh philosophical themes. It is the first philosophy of geopolitics.
