Francis Fukuyama on Liberalism - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 813
Liberalism/Fukuyama:it was objected against Fukuyama (BurnsVsFukuyama (1)) that he understood the spread of democracies with simultaneous regression of a struggle for recognition as modernization. Fukuyama is uncritical of capitalist development and the Western model of democracy. At the same time, the victims of capitalist development processes would also be marginalized. (2)
FukuyamaVsVs: the real danger lies precisely in such a criticism that evokes the end of modernism. A de-ideologized form of liberalism, in which all ideologies occupy an equal place for the benefit of individual expressionism, is not possible without abolishing liberalism itself. (3) It would then no longer be possible to weigh up the various rights on the basis of a higher principle. VsFukuyama: See Democracy/Fukuyama.
