The twenty-first century?

Eric Hobsbawm calls it the short twentieth century. It began with the first world war in 1914, and ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Perhaps, looking back, people will say that the twenty-first century began when the masses reignited history in 2011.

(Mostly, I just want to drop something here before 2012.)
