For 99 years, an overt system of "elites" kept the peace in Europe -- from 1815 to 1914.

The collapse of this so-called "Congress System" (named for the infamous "Congress of Vienna" in 1814) -- with the breakout of the Crimean War in 1914 between Russia, the Ottoman Empire, France and Britain -- led inexorably to World War I, in 1917 ... and then to an even more catastrophic World War II, in 1939.

Did this tragic collapse of "transnational control of world affairs" in the last century argue for such a "behind-the-scenes international system of controls on nations" ... or against?

My guest tonight, historian Dr. Richard Spence, will attempt to answer this increasingly relevant 21st Century question -- against the backdrop of President Recep Erdogan's apparent re-election tonight in Turkey, in his drive to reconstitute "a 21st Century Ottoman Empire," and President Donald Trump's apparent agreement with Russia's President Vladimir Putin, that a new "international order" should be based on "every nation for itself."

Join us ... as we explore the role of "hidden elites" in a global nuclear age ....
