The Decline of Power

  • Frank Sieren


Peace is threatened when one fails to recognise its presence. Particularly in times of long-lasting peace people tend to overlook that peace is not just a matter of course but rather that the state clasps it with all its power. It has the monopoly over the internal application of power, and to ensure that peace prevails is one of the most important achievements of modern nation states. Without the state’s monopoly of power a society is unable to function. However, just how quickly it can be undermined by those who no longer feel that they are being represented by the state is easily underestimated.
