Abstract

In “At the ‘End of History’ Still Stands Democracy,” Francis Fukuyama
proposes that there has been no serious threat to his idea that
Western style democracy is the “end of history” and that the
United States does not damage global stability. Through analyzing
and criticizing the main ideas of Francis Fukuyama, the conclusion
is drawn that the China model is a powerful proof against his
view of the “end of history.” The tension in European and Asian
regions is due to the instigation of the United States who in the
20 years since the end of the Cold War has wantonly launched
wars under the excuse that human rights enjoy priority over
sovereignty. Besides, a series of financial and economic crises in
the Western world expose a set of disadvantages of capitalism,
showing that human history has not ended up with the Western
capitalist political system.
