three events that disrupted euro centric world: martin wolf in FT

1914: ww1
1944: end of ww2
1989: end of soviet union + tienanmen

all three rewrote the world away from colonial europe's domination

same thing is happening this year with 2014: namo rise, abe assertion, xi revanchism

in a few years, europe will be rendered fully irrelevant
