    Maps have a mysterious hold over us. Whether ancient, crumbling parchments or generated by Google, maps tell us things we want to know, not only about our current location or where we are going but about the world in general. And yet, when it comes to geo-politics, much of what we are told is generated by analysts and other experts who have neglected to refer to a map of the place in question.

    The globe has always been a world of walls, from the Great Wall of China to Hadrian's Wall to the Berlin Wall. But a new age of isolationism and economic nationalism is upon us, visible not just in Trump's obsession with building a wall on the Mexico border or in Britain's Brexit vote but in many other places as well. China has the Great Firewall, holding back Western culture. Europe's countries are walling themselves against immigrants, terrorism, and currency issues. In fact, at least 65 countries have barriers along their borders. Understanding what is behind these divisions is essential to understanding much of what's going on in the world today.

    When you see your nation's flag fluttering in the breeze, what do you feel? For thousands of years flags have represented our hopes and dreams. We wave them. Burn them. March under their colours. And still, in the 21st century, we die for them. Flags fly at the UN, on the Arab street, from front porches in Texas. They represent the politics of high power as well as the politics of the mob.

    Weltpolitik ist auch Geopolitik. Alle Regierungen, alle Staatschefs unterliegen den Zwängen der Geographie. Berge und Ebenen, Flüsse, Meere, Wüsten setzen ihrem Entscheidungsspielraum Grenzen. Um Geschichte und Politik zu verstehen, muss man selbstverständlich die Menschen, die Ideen, die Einstellungen kennen. Aber wenn man die Geographie nicht mit einbezieht, bekommt man kein vollständiges Bild.

    Life is made up of billions of moments linked together. Each moment is important. Once a moment passes you can never recapture it. The moments of your life pile together to form your world, good or bad. Now, what if you took each moment and wrung the beauty and potential from it? Imagine this life. But how do you know what potential lies in the moment? Through fear and indecision, and perhaps laziness, we let these moments slip away.

    Die Welt ist heute wieder ein beunruhigender Ort, vom neuen Nationalismus in China über die gespaltenen Gesellschaften in Europa und den USA bis hin zum furchterregenden Aufstieg des IS. Wenn man einen Blick auf die Flaggen dieser Länder und Organisationen wirft, dann wird vieles klar, was auf den ersten Blick völlig unverständlich erscheint. Denn seit Jahrtausenden verkörpern Flaggen unsere Hoffnungen und Träume. Wir schwenken sie, wir verbrennen sie, wir marschieren unter ihren Farben.

    Wir leben in einem neuen Zeitalter des Isolationismus und Nationalismus, in dem Mauern wieder Konjunktur haben, von der amerikanischen Mauer an der Grenze zu Mexiko bis hin zu der Firewall, mit der China sich gegen den Westen abschottet. Europa errichtet Zäune gegen Flüchtlinge, Mauern und Zäune ziehen sich durch den Nahen Osten, den Sudan, Korea, Indien. Mindestens 65 Länder der Welt, mehr als je zuvor, haben stark befestigte Grenzen. Es gibt viele Gründe dafür: Reichtum und Armut, Rasse, Religion, Politik, Angst.
