Are We Entering an Age of Global Disorder?

Hosted by

If chaos is the “new norm,” does it contain the seeds of another global upheaval?  World War I was the “war to end all wars,” but it didn’t turn out that way.  After World War II and the Cold War, another global conflict has come to be regarded as unthinkable.  But this month’s issue of the Atlantic magazine contains an article titled, “Yes It Could Happen Again.”  The author is Roger Cohen, foreign editor for the New York Times for more than a decade, now a columnist based in London.
