I learned from NBBooks at Daily Kos:
In 1992 [neo] economist Francis Fukuyama of Stanford [since 2010, previously Johns Hopkins and George Mason universities] wrote "The End of History and the Last Man" about how the West had won the cold war was "the end point of mankind's ideological evolution." Two weeks ago he published in "Foriegn Affairs" the quarterly journal and associated website run by the [tinfoil hat time Libertarians] Council on Foreign Relations : "America in Decay," which decided that the culmination of human culture predicted by his earlier work might have some flaws requiring further evolution after all. "Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government." was premature.
NBBooks comments, ". . . they get upset when we the people start showing signs that we're not happy with the new corporatist paradise they've constructed for themselves, and locked us in as their supposedly prosperous and cheerful serfs. . . ."
there's a lot more in NBBooks' blog today.
Who coulda guessed that Milton Friedman's neo-liberal wet dream would turn into a nightmare of anti democractic special interest power and concentration of wealth that's destroying the real economy and threatening the survival of the human race?! The "best and brightest?" Right!
