Are We Entering The Era Of “The Strongman?”

Mar 9th, 2019 | By

One of the major political struggles of our day is whether nations are embracing a democratic order, centered in the will of the people, or an authoritarian one, characterized by a strongman who satisfies the demand for a more muscular, assertive leader.
