The return of the center, even in heart of old worldBy now it is settled wisdom that we are witnessing the rise of radical forces on the left and right around the globe. The center is rising again, even in the heart of the old world.Consider Emmanuel Macron, the 39-year-old former Rothschild banker who is currently the odds-on favorite to become France's next president. Polls indicate that the far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, is leading the field of candidates in the first round with about 25 percent of the vote. But in the second round, which pits only the two front-runners against one another, Macron is projected to beat her handily. The world is increasingly connected, diverse, and tolerant, and hundreds of millions of people in the West, especially young people, celebrate that reality. Macron champions these ideals, even as he appeals to others who are more nervous about the changing world.
