The 21st century is not progressing as expected. Conventional wisdom at the turn of the century was that the world would grow more peaceful and orderly. Globalization would advance democratization. Instead, the post-war rules-based international system that saw us through Cold War and its aftermath is now under strain. Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping prefer spheres of influence. Donald Trump puts America First.
