"EVERYTHING IS INTERCONNECTED": DAVID MILLIBAND AT THE ROYAL SOCIETY

David Milliband spoke at the Royal Society yesterday on Science, Diplomacy and the Modern Age.

"...international relations has long been premised on the idea of a ‘balance of power’. The international system tended towards equilibrium and self-correction, as states sought to balance each other’s economic or military strength; an echo of the world of Newtonian Mechanics. But today, a defining feature of our world is the tendency towards imbalance and asymmetry, mirroring the world of Quantum Mechanics."
