Bi-Polar to No-Polar

We have gone from a bi-polar world, to a uni-polar world and now to a multi-polar world. There no longer is only a few "centers of gravity" in the world. What we have now is a world in which many regional players with a divided influence over the world. The world is emerging into a kind of "quasi-anarchy" in which the old "powers that be" are losing influence and power. This is an inevitable side effect of an interconnected, global economic and political systems. This is the dark side of Tolkin’s third wave.
The cold war may have been a time of imperialism, but, at least there was some restraint. Not so now.
