BRICS Alliance vs. Westeros: Uniting Against Common Foes

GAME OF THRONES fans, and those familiar with the successful and suspenseful dramatic, adventure, series… this might seem like a crazy comparison but I have to do it. In a world filled with strategic alliances and power struggles, it is fascinating to draw parallels between the real world and the realm of fiction. The BRICS alliance, consisting of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, bears an uncanny resemblance to the regions of Westeros when they united against the Lannisters and their small bannermen. I can’t deny that although there aren’t many brown faces in Game of Thrones, except for the savage Dothraki, and a pirate, or slaves it remains one of my favorite shows to watch. I am running it back again and noticing some things. This blog explores the similarities between these two scenarios, highlighting the shared motivations, challenges, and outcomes. So let’s all try to have some fun with it.
1. Common Threats:
Both the BRICS alliance and the united regions of Westeros faced common threats that necessitated their cooperation. In the case of BRICS, their primary adversary is often perceived to be NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), a military alliance led by the United States. Similarly, the regions of Westeros united against the Lannisters, a powerful and oppressive House that sought to consolidate its control over the Seven Kingdoms. In both instances, the need to counter a common foe became the driving force behind unity.
2. Geopolitical Balance:
The BRICS alliance and the united regions of Westeros sought to create a balance of power in their respective domains. Emerging as major global players, BRICS nations aimed to challenge the dominance of NATO and establish a multipolar world order. In Westeros, the alliance aimed to restore stability and prevent the Lannisters from monopolizing power. By aligning themselves against a dominant force, both factions aimed to safeguard their interests and promote a more equitable distribution of power.
3. Diversity and Cooperation:
One striking similarity between the BRICS alliance and the united regions of Westeros lies in their diversity and the need for practical cooperation. The BRICS nations represent different continents, cultures, and political systems. Despite their differences, they recognize the importance of collaboration to achieve their common goals. Similarly, the regions of Westeros, each with their unique identities and histories, put aside their differences to form a united front. In both cases, diversity became a strength rather than a hindrance, fostering cooperation and broadening perspectives.
4. Challenges Faced:
Both the BRICS alliance and the united regions of Westeros encountered significant challenges in their pursuit of unity. Within the BRICS alliance, differing priorities, economic disparities, and geopolitical rivalries have sometimes strained their cooperation. Similarly, the regions of Westeros faced internal conflicts, rivalries, and personal ambitions that threatened to undermine their collective efforts. Overcoming these challenges required compromise, negotiation, and the ability to prioritize the common good over individual interests.
5. Outcomes and Lessons:
While the outcomes of these two scenarios differ due to their fictional and real-world nature, there are valuable lessons to be drawn. The BRICS alliance has emerged as a significant force in global affairs, challenging the dominance of established powers and fostering economic cooperation among its member states. In Westeros, the united regions successfully toppled the Lannisters and restored a sense of balance and justice. Both scenarios demonstrate the potential for collective action to bring about meaningful change, even in the face of formidable opposition.

Drawing parallels between the BRICS alliance and the united regions of Westeros reveals intriguing similarities in their motivations, challenges, and outcomes. While one is grounded in reality and the other in fiction, the underlying themes of unity, common threats, diversity, and cooperation resonate strongly. Perhaps in reality, Africa is the Iron Throne that every country desires to possess. After all, it has everything the world needs in its soil. Those nations who desire it are even willing to starve, burn, and enslave the poor, and darker people of the world to possess it. Margery was despised by Cersei for her diplomacy with the poor, among other things that also made the rose appear more graceful than the lioness. Whose sigil would be the lion, dragon, and wolf today? Are we perhaps heading to a “long night” ourselves, and will it be the end of the old world to bring in the new? By examining these parallels, we can gain insights into the dynamics of alliances and appreciate the potential for collective action to shape our world, both on the global stage and within the pages of our favorite stories.
