The world's most dangerous stealth trend

Quote:
There's at least one echo from our geopolitical past that we really ought to pay attention to today. It's highly unusual. It has received little attention. But it could well be the world's most dangerous trend.
The article goes on to cite a number of foreign policy failures globally. This isn't focused on the U.S., but addresses a wide range of global security failures, and argues that foreign policy is no longer working.

Quote:
A similarly profound kind of uncertainty loomed over the world in 1913 and 1938 with the exception of the United States. Now, we've been dragged into it too.

General strategic failure the world over has historically meant major war. That's one lesson we'd best be prepared to heed.
