    Francis Fukuyama says that:

    "we may be witnessing...the end of history as such: ... the end point of mankind's ideological evolution and the universalization of Western liberal democracy as the final form of human government"

    Is humanity destined to end up with the same system of what we now call "Western liberal democracy"?

    As such, is it fair to say that the history of political ideologies is drawing to a close?

    I don't know. Perhaps something a bit more authoritarian?

    I see his point to be fair, but I'm sure those centuries ago probably held the same view when it came to the feudal system. I'm sure mankind is intellectually growing and will eventually surpass the pretty broken form of government we have at the moment.

    Oh I agree. I'm just curious as to what other people think. Probably could start a new thread on this, but what would you call the period we're entering?

    Why should nations be the main division in human society? Perhaps we should be grouped according to whether we use Apple products or Android?

    Given that we were broadly organised by religion for centuries, and we're still warring over that, I'm not so sure to be honest.
