Audio Posted -- "The Great War: Why Study a War Fought One Hundred Years Ago?"

Here is the audio from Friday's Academy Lecture:  The Great War: Lecture One

There are seven broad-ranging geopolitical implications which comprise the legacy of the Great War:

1).  The Great War marks the dawn of the modern world

2).  The Great War shook the very foundation of Europe and Western Civilization

3).  The Great War leads to a sequel (WW2)

4).  The Great War gives rise to the Arab-Israeli conflict

5).  The Great War sets the stage for the rise of ISIS and transnational terrorism

6). The Great War gave rise to the Soviet Union and international Communism

7). The Great War gave rise to America as the world’s foremost super-power

Also, the Great War lead to the collapse of postmill eschatology.

Don't know if the book covers this or not (I guess I should get a copy and read it), but is it safe to say that WW1 marked the beginning of the end of modern civilization as we know it? And WW2 accelerated the process? Also, it seems like the "world wars" of the 20th Century, not to mention the great depression(s) and the Cold War took place during a time of modernism, rationalism, pragmatism, etc. philosophical thinking became popular. Oh, and fascism especially.
