Et si la France était le meilleur rempart contre la barbarie et la tyrannie ? Un peu partout sur la planète, les valeurs de la civilisation sont en recul face à la montée de la barbarie et de la tyrannie. Les peuples ont peur et se tournent vers des hommes forts au verbe imprécateur. Le paysage international est sans alliances stables, marqué par le " chacun pour soi " et Dieu pour les djihado-terroristes. Comme le présent, l'avenir sera teinté de cinquante nuances de guerre dans un monde qui revient à la logique du duché, du marquisat, du comté et du califat. Notre maison commune est en ruine. Comment la reconstruire ? Face à cette montée des extrémismes et du repli identitaire, la France et l'Europe, par leur histoire, leurs valeurs, leur organisation et leur puissance potentielle représentent l'un des rares antidotes possibles. Le traitement doit être militaire et sécuritaire, bien sûr, mais surtout politique, au sens le plus large du terme. En revanche, si l'Europe se fracture et se fissure à son tour, la guerre ajoutera rapidement de nouvelles teintes à son nuancier... Pierre Servent nous livre une analyse à la fois éclairante et accessible de la nature des menaces qui pèsent sur notre monde et des pistes qui pourraient permettre de les contrer.
