The Dangerous Decade


Richard Haass: “There are decades where nothing happens, and there are weeks where decades happen. These words are apocryphally attributed Vladimir Lenin, the Bolshevik revolutionary and Bolshevik. They refer to the sudden collapse of the tsarist Russia a little over 100 years ago. If he had actually said those words, Lenin might have added that there are also decades when centuries happen.”

“The world is in the midst of one such decade. The danger of today’s world is similar to other historical hinges. It stems from a sharp fall in world order. But more than at any other recent moment, that decline threatens to become especially steep, owing to a confluence of old and new threats that have begun to intersect at a moment the United States is ill positioned to contend with them.”
