Freedom and macro determination: revolution from the early modern

Macrodetermination of historical/politics forms comes as a shock to historical understanding, but the evidence is clear in an historical outline in the large. But in modern times we are seeing this system moving through democracy and then projecting a new future of a system that reconciles economic freedom and political mastery of capitalist domination.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75650151/LFM_review_copy_selections.pdf: the second chapter of Last and First Men takes a ride through the rising revolutionary sequence from the early modern starting point to the twentieth century, and the evidence shows the rarity, nay near non-existence, of both revolution and democracy in antiquity, and the explosive appearance of both in the modern transition, with a climax near its end or ‘divide’. The creation of a new society via bourgeois revolution is now encountering the now classic prophecies of its passing away into a new class domination via economic process left to run unchecked, and the whole issue of democracy has scrambled the clarity required to reinvent democracy via postcapitalism.
