ricky doesnt really agree with krauthammer. hes just one of those kids who thinks its cool to say "unipolarity, bitches!" but unfortunately, thats me too.
anyway, i know this thread is supposed to be about the best model for world politics and not about which one is most likely to occur, but does anyone think its possible for an effective and non-violent transformation to a new system of global politics? it seems to me that any threats to the existing order would be crushed. however, i do believe in the long run change in global politics is possible (i.e. feudalism => status quo). but that obviously brings me back to my original question: could a change ever be non-violent?
