    Liberal democracy Introduction To begin with Francis Fukuyama's, provocative thesis, that after the fall of communism in Europe and the withering of the grand ideological contests, history too has ended. In his "end of history" theory, he maintained that the western liberal democracy had become the `final form of human government'.   Liberal Ideals and International Realities is a project to unearth “the relationship between liberalism, nationalism, and realism,” Mearsheimer said. For too long theorists of international relations, and especially proponents of liberal hegemony, have ignored nationalism, “the most powerful ideological tool in the world.”.

    Almost two decades ago Francis Fukuyama proclaimed the victory of liberal democracy. Today he’s seeing the system shattered in large part by identity politics—the subject of his latest book.   Strong liberal democracies not only avoid war with one another, but also have much lower levels of civil conflict, deadly terrorism, attacks against women, violent crime, and poverty, according to a new analysis, launched last week at the Brookings Institution by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (right) and former Tunisian Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa (left).

      Democracy is a complex term used to describe a variety of political shapes and systems, which can even, be contradictable between themselves. This is a result of the conflict that exists between the two primary values of democracy: freedom (liberty) and equality. These two principles are placed in the core of the representative (liberal) and the participative (or popular) democracy.   Even if Western leaders manage to limit the COVID outbreak’s immediate fallout, it will mean little without forward-looking efforts to strengthen liberal-democratic systems from within. Such a failure would could well amount to handing China victory in the global contest of ideas .
