The Most Important Historical Events of Three Centuries
In the nineteenth century, the most important historical event was the defeat of Napoleon—this set the stage for the creation of Pax Britannica (the British Empire became the global hegemonic power). In the twentieth century, the most important historical event was the fall of the British Empire —this century was not about the communist movements (the rise and fall of the Soviet Union) but about anti-imperialism. What will be the most important historical event of the twenty-first century? The USA could fall due to a combination of factors—the collapse of the dollar, soaring inflation, political scandals, civil unrest, and military pressure from its geopolitical adversaries. The end of the USA would mark the end of Western power in the world.
