I read that the government has all but collapsed and gangs have taken over. In Columbia there is still a government but on going protests in which gangs are intertwined.
Further afield much of Central America is riven by gangs. Decimated after being on the front line of the US war on drugs for decades.
Why have these societies fractured? Once they have collapsed into disorder is there any way back?
Is there a risk that more and more countries become failed states or on the verge of failing. In this interconnected world like a line of dominoes that just go down one after the other.
