Description

In 1991, the Soviet Union dissolved in chaos ending the twentieth century’s first self-proclaimed worker’s state. For many in the West, the fact that the USSR collapsed under its own internal contradictions was evidence of the superiority of the liberal capitalist system over any potential rivals. In the heady years that followed, Francis Fukuyama declared that the fall of communism signaled “the end of history as such: that is, the end point of mankind’s ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government.” Viewed from 2021, such pontifications appear to be hubris of the highest order. Beginning with the 2008 economic crisis, through Brexit, Trump and now COVID, talk of the end of history has ended as the liberal democratic consensus evaporates. But what does the end of the end of history mean for the future?
