A contagion of global and potentially epic proportions is becoming more deeply embedded with each passing day. And the impact from this epidemic is both far and wide with a meaningful influence on global politics, acts of war and even financial markets. What is this global dilemma? It is the increasing realization that we are seemingly living in a world without consequences. Global actors with considerable weight, some of which have dubious objectives to say the least, are able to move freely without accountability. Moreover, these actors are likely feeling increasingly emboldened by the fact that each unthinkably controversial line crossed is apparently met with little to no response other than equivocation from those that are charged with the responsibility of maintaining order and formulating a response. While trying to ignore and delay dealing with the major geopolitical and financial problems besetting the world today may continue to provide the easy way out in the short-term, such disregard can ultimately lead to gravely disastrous costs at some inevitable point in the intermediate-term future.
