Here’s the background for Marcus’ book.
New Nations are rising to the level of Power of America in the next 20-40 years, according to world economic experts. In this new world, these powers will go to world centers of negotiation that have held world peace together since WWII, such as the IMF, G20, UN, World Bank, etc less in the future because they view these institutions as “unfair”. These new rising world powers (China, India, Russia, Brazil, India, and a south-east Asian collective known as ASEAN) will make “their own UNs” as they approach the power of America.
This is because the centers of world peace that have been used in the last century are seen as created and owned by America and Europe. Other rising super powers do not feel that they are treated as equals in these institutions, so they are going less to meetings at these negotiation centers, and are making their own negotiation centers. The map above shows how the world is being broken up into separate blocks.
American foreign policy experts – call this emerging trend dangerous, because this is how WWI and WWII started, when Italy, Japan, and Germany rose to power from 1880-1910. Those nations while rising participated in discussions with England and France, but as soon as they were as powerful as these established super powers, they left the League of Nations, stopped participating in joint world discussions and world war started. American foreign policy scholars are calling this point out- but these scholars have no solution to the trend.
California alone can be the solution to this emerging global problem. California can become the new negotiation center for the next century, bringing together all of the new and old super powers in a new organization.
The idea of peaceful negotiation centers between super powers, started in Switzerland. Most of the world’s negotiation institutions are in Switzerland. 200 years ago the Swiss were able to argue that they should be the world center for negotiations because the world was owned by European peoples, and because the Swiss themselves were made up of many different European peoples already living together peacefully. Today, the world needs a new center, and only California has a population made up of all of the new and old super powers peoples – making it the only place that can replace what Switzerland did in the last century, but for the needs of this next century. If California did this, world peace would stabilize and California would become one of the richest places in the world.
The book has received positive reviews from NBC affiliate Ksee 24, LA Daily, SF book review, Californiality.com, foreign policy scholar James O Goldsborough, international business consultant James Strock, and radio host Joyce Kauffman.

In the play, Nora has gone behind her husband back, who used to be very ill, and collected money that she said was from her father to send her sick husband to Italy to receive metal attention. In her head, she did what she had to do to make sure her husband didn’t die. To Nora’s husband, barring money is against his rule, especially without his permission.
What is your vision for the future. Maybe not a grand vision, instead write about your vision for a child or a niece or nephew. What does their world look like? Will they bother with reality at all? Will college look different? Will their social interactions look different? Write about what the world will look like in 20 years.
