Is Putin right when he says that “Western-style liberalism” is “obsolete”?

It’s difficult to look beyond Trump, as he demands so much of our attention, and rightfully so, but the issue we’re facing right now is far bigger than him. We live in a time of great uncertainty and fear, and people, not just in America, but across the globe, are beginning to gravitate toward authoritarianism. […]
