The democracy protests in Hong Kong are grist for our mill in the study of Last and First Men of the ‘end of history’ memes.

The counterpunch articles shift between democratic promotion and democratic critique: The Chinese setting is especially provocative in relation to the ‘dialectic’ of ‘democracy’, ‘bourgeois democracy’ and ‘commnunism as economic democracy’. We have yet to achieve any real combination that can balance the two opposites/complements, identicals.
