gI'm back. For few months I was largely absent from this blog posting only few times though there was so much to discuss. Now, I'm back though. To start with, let me share with you some articles I've read recently:
The can only go so far - by Francis Fukuyama
Fukuyama is back to defend his "End of History" theory of nearly two decades ago. He makes an interesting point that "Democracy's only real competitor in the realm of ideas today is radical Islamism". Of course, he had to say "radical Islam" and not Islam because that's political correct but it's Islam that provides the alternative: both political and economic alternative. This point was also made in the "Clash of civilizations" by Huntington

An interesting look at what the financial crisis means for US standing in the world.
