Thank you for the contribution. I hope I'll add some oil into the flame, which used to burn bright.
First, I'd put a question mark on anything concerning future. Will the 2010s be seen as an "intercrisis period"? Today we take 2008 as a moment of a spectacular crisis, but it pales in comparison to any major event of the previous century. It was a moment, in which the liberalism lost a bit of face, but didn't it lose more when we invaded Iraq? As you rightly pointed out, the subsequent protest movements couldn't produce any sound answer - actually they had none, excluding the fringe ideas of classic fascism. No alternative solutions were proposed to the projects like EU or UN, if I may exclude the internet-driven caliphate.
I think the period is indeed post-globalist, but more because of the individualism and the related egocentric limitations of one's horizons. The world didn't become smaller as Fukuyamas and Clintons hoped, but rather more complex; people became more specialized, often limiting their very interest in politics, leaving it as a playfield for wannabe technocrats and stunt performers. In the 1910s, the overall mindset of the people around the world was collective, driven by competing ideologies (the word in its original sense), developed both by pen and sword throughout the whole 19th century. Now you (1) have no collectives, only masses subject to statistics and national borders, and (2) no ideologies, only "issues", which are discussed only so far, as long the sociopolitical maxims (or the Zizek-style one "Ideology") are not put into question. And I don't think it is the same as in the pre-1989 eastern states, all of this is well accepted by the postmodern thought. You can check and discuss the issues, but the more abstract you become, the less people are you going to find, who could follow you: they would see it merely as one less-pressing issue. It's easy to become misinterpreted as a troll, as an extremist or simply becoming unsympathetic. Fanaticism isn't trendy.
This makes the present world similar to that of post-Westfalen Europe. The major conflict of two competing ideologies was resolved a generation ago, as Protestants took over the business, and the Evil Catholic Empire crumbled under its own dead weight. There was something like the Battle of Poltava recently, an indication of a decline of one of the key players, but the age of Enlightenment and revolutions is still far away.
