On the verge of collapse

bidussaBy David Bidussa*

The twentieth century was characterized by the sudden collapse of states and empires that seemed to be in difficulties, but still capable of overcoming the impact of catastrophic events.
At the time of their collapse, those structures that seemed to represent the point of balance of the system and the guarantee of its duration, were shattered. Will it be like this again?
