The end of the end of the history


Yep, the era of "end of the history" conception obviously ended. And we have to deal with it.

In Australia they have a lottery called "Slikpik". Which is very funny for danes, because it literly spells, "Lick D*ck" in danish.

Several countries have in the past banned ruling queens, but lacked any requirement that the king be male. This led to King Anna of Poland, and King Mary of Hungary.

"Russia is paranoid again"? I never noticed they'd stopped.

This isn't the end, but the beginning. Remember: during WWI, many thought the same - they saw the other-wordly level of destruction and death and thought "We can't possibly come back from this." Yet, here we are. The scars are still there, but our ancestors found a way to move on. I think things will be tough for a while, but ultimately we'll find the way forward again.

I would say that the golden age, for all the fears of an emperor [Soviet style] in Russia or China doing something very stupid, really started in ~1950, for the west at least. Then you saw the development of parts of E Asia especially but also other sections of the world. The stupid idea of the "end of history" after the collapse of the Soviet empire and with China looking like it might liberalise was always a delusion - as there are always going to be competition and conflict.

To me the rot really started in ~1979-80 with the rise of hard right [by the standards of the time] governments in Britain and the US and with the Iranian revolution being high-jacked by reactionary Islam and the following Sunni reaction. But then that's when my young dreams of progress and success for Britain started to fade so possibly that's a point which occurs for many people when they reach that age?

Indeed.

:(

Sadly, Russia was always xenophobic. I think it's one of their most successful cultural exports.

Is "authorian" supposed to be "authoritarian"?

The "End of History" was the idea at the end of the Cold War that the Western World had emerged triumphant and liberal democracy would remain the dominant form of government. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_End_of_History_and_the_Last_Man
