IN WATCHING the flow of events over the past decade or so, it is hard to avoid the feeling that something very fundamental has happened in world history. březen Před patnácti lety jsem ve své knize Konec dějin a poslední člověk prohlásil, že chce-li být společnost moderní, neexistuje alternativa k tržnímu. Francis Fukuyama a Samuel Huntington (Konec dějin nebo střet civilizací?) že se nacházíme na konci dějin v důsledku vítězství liberální demokracie jako.

In France, however, there has been an effort to save Hegel from his Marxist interpreters and to resurrect him as the philosopher who most correctly speaks to our time. Some have argued against the book due to an ideological disagreement with the concept of liberal democracy. The End of History was never linked to a specifically American model of social or political organization.
Two cataclysmic world wars in this century have been spawned by the nationalism of the developed world in various guises, and if those passions have been muted to a certain extent in postwar Europe, they are still extremely powerful in the Third World.
This theory has faced criticismwith arguments largely resting on conflicting definitions of “war” and “mature democracy”. Max Weber begins his famous book, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalismby noting the different economic performance of Protestant and Catholic communities throughout Europe and America, summed up in the proverb that Protestants eat well while Catholics sleep well.
Please be civil and avoid name-calling and ad hominem remarks. Fukuyama argues that even though there is poverty, racismand sexism in present-day democracies, there is no sign of a major revolutionary movement developing that would actually overthrow capitalism. More important is the contribution that Japan has made in turn to world history by following in the footsteps of the United States to create a truly universal consumer culture that has become both a symbol and an underpinning of the universal homogenous state.

Indeed, one of the world’s most dangerous nation-states today is Iran, run by extremist Shiite mullahs. While they may constitute a source of conflict for liberal societies, this conflict does not arise from liberalism itself so much as from the fact that the liberalism in question is fukuama.
From their writings and from my own personal contacts with them, there is no question in my mind that the liberal Soviet intelligentsia rallying around Gorbachev have arrived konecc the end-of-history view in a remarkably short time, due in no small measure to the contacts they have had since the Brezhnev era with the larger European civilization around them.
The struggle between two opposing systems is no longer a determining tendency of the present-day era. This consciousness may not be explicit and self-aware, as are modern political doctrines, but may rather take the form of religion or simple cultural or moral habits.

There are, of course, a number of fatal fukuyma in the current implementation of the reform, most notably the absence of a thoroughgoing price reform. The ideological challenge mounted by the other great alternative to liberalism, communism, was far more serious.
This conflict corresponded to some extent to one between proponents of different racing teams in the Hippodrome in Byzantium and led to a not insignificant fukuyaa of political violence. But at the end of history it is not necessary that all societies become successful liberal societies, merely that they end their ideological pretensions of representing different and higher forms of human society.

The end of history according to Francis Fukuyama and Czech comments twenty years after
China could not now be described in any way as a liberal democracy. Indeed, if the bulk of the present economic reform proposals were put into effect, it is hard to know how the Soviet economy would be more socialist than those of other Western countries with large public sectors.
Gorbachev has spoken of democratization primarily in the sphere of internal party affairs, and has shown little intention of ending the Communist party’s monopoly of power; indeed, the political reform seeks to legitimize and therefore strengthen the CPSU’S rule. Marx, speaking Hegel’s language, asserted that liberal society contained a fundamental contradiction that could not be resolved within its context, that between capital and labor, and this contradiction has constituted the chief accusation against liberalism ever since.
They belong entirely to the realm of philosophy or religion, owing their birth to the Gospels of Philosophy of Hegel. And indeed, a central theme of Weber’s work was to prove that contrary to Marx, the material mode of production, far from being the “base,” was itself a “superstructure” with roots in religion and culture, and that to understand the emergence of modern capitalism and the profit motive one had to study their antecedents in the realm of the spirit.
In the past century, there have been two major challenges to liberalism, those of fascism and of communism.

In the post-historical period there will be neither art nor philosophy, just the perpetual caretaking of the museum of human history.
The two world wars in this century and their attendant revolutions and upheavals simply had the effect of extending those principles spatially, such that the various provinces of human civilization were brought up to the level of its most advanced outposts, and of forcing those societies in Europe and North America at the vanguard of civilization to implement their liberalism more fully. This is, of course, a convenient point of view for people who want to admit that something major is changing in the Soviet Union, but do not want to accept responsibility for recommending the radical policy redirection implicit in such a view.
After the war, it seemed to most people that German fascism as well as its other European and Asian variants were bound to self-destruct.
Masaryk University, Faculty of Arts. The Wall Street Journal school of deterministic materialism habitually points to the stunning economic success of Asia in the past few decades as evidence of the viability of free market economics, with the implication that all societies would see similar development were they simply to allow their populations to pursue their material self-interest freely. It should be clear that in terms of formal institutions, not much has changed in the four years since Gorbachev has come to power: Indeed, there is on the Right what one might label the Wall Street Journal school of deterministic materialism that discounts the importance of ideology and culture and sees man as essentially a rational, profit-maximizing individual.
