Changing history? 

October 14th, 2016 · No Comments

Still another post on this (and I haven’t yet finished the article): I find it rather odd to be agreeing with Gray here, but he is right that liberalism (neo-liberalism, n’est-ce pas, monsier Gray?).
Controlling the future, if you study my ‘eonic effect’, will become man’s destiny, perhaps, but it requires a pretty stupendous technology: inducing macrosequences over tens of thousands of years, and the ability to stage real social change, ‘revolutions’, etc…
I should finish reading the article…

Questionable in the autumn of 1989, when Francis Fukuyama first announced the end of history in the National Interest, this assertion of the victory of liberalism sounds dated and weirdly surreal today.
