Power Issue, number four

Art direction by Paul Willoughby

"The end of the Cold War destroyed the clearly defined barriers of left and right. In the ensuing ideological confusion, authoritarian populism is becoming the dominant form of ruling power, publicly reinforcing the values of nationalism while it deconstructs the state for private gains. What factors have contributed to this unfortunate state of affairs, and what better models can we offer to remedy this global state of ideological confusion? – This is the question this issue puts forward."
