In Michael G. Festl (ed.), Handbuch Liberalismus. J.B. Metzler. pp. 527-534 (2021)


Contrary to Francis Fukuyama’sFukuyama, Francis triumphant proclamation of a definite ‘endpoint of mankind’s ideological evolution’ following the collapse of Soviet-style communism, the early twenty-first century has not witnessed a total exhaustion of all systematic alternatives to political and economic liberalism. In fact, the reverse process appears to have taken place as the world experiences what might be called the ‘Great Unsettling’—shorthand for a profound global systemic shift toward volatility and destabilization. These dynamics are manifested in economic dislocation, automation, precarious work, inequality, migration, technological transformation, cultural shifts, and climate change.
