Fukuyama was wrong (no kidding!)
BBC News discusses the new book, by neoconservative policy hawk, Robert Kagan, entitled The Return of History and the End of Dreams. Correctly, Kagan says that the "end of history" that Fukuyama saw in the fall of the Berlin Wall was pure delusion. Not surprisingly, Kagan's remedy for this striking return of history: more aggressive American foreign policy. Whether history has ended or not, it appears that the cure for all our ills is the same. Violence: the thinking man's penicillin.
