The world is currently facing a political and military crisis. The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has escalated to a global level, while the situation in the Middle East has become increasingly volatile. As more and more areas of tension arise, it becomes clearer that the old order, where wars and revolutions could resolve the accumulated contradictions, is crumbling.
