Roast this video in the comments. https://tinyurl.com/AstrobumTV2 Buy Billionaire Peter Thiel's Zero to One Book here! http://amzn.to/2x1J8BX The Power of Putin - Documentary 2017, BBC Documentary Putin has created what he calls a "vertical of power," something unlike any we see in other great nations. As the Russian chess grandmaster Gary Kasparov -- himself a harsh critic of Putin -- has noted, the entire structure of Russian political power rests on one man. When the czar died, you knew the structure that would endure and the process by which his successor, his son, would be elevated. When the general secretary of the Soviet Communist Party died, the Standing Committee and the Politburo would select his successor. But when Putin dies, what will happen? No one knows.

The year 2017 marked a shift in leadership at the United Nations as Secretary-General António Guterres began his term at a time of heightened global challenges. The world's fastest-growing refugee crisis unfolded in Myanmar while the threat of famine loomed over Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria and Somalia. Resolved to forestall crises before they occur, Secretary-General Guterres launched a series of reforms aimed at advancing meditation and prevention. These build on past successes, including the proud legacy left by the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, which closed its doors after reshaping the global approach to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. As the United Nations rises to the world's collective security challenges, the voices of the people most affected resound with greater meaning for our common future.

There are years that history remembers as flash points of political change — 1776, 1848, 1968 — and when the dust settles, it seems inevitable that 2017 will join that list. It was a period of upheaval from the very start: we were only three weeks into the year, and Donald Trump’s presidency was only a day old, when hundreds of thousands of women marched on Washington and other cities around the world to protest the new administration.
