The biggest illusion sold to Western populations is that the current stage of human development in the West represents the “End of History”, which means there is no way history would make any progress beyond western standards, therefore the rest of the world should adopt western ways of life and values, and definitely give up any idea of alternative civilization.
That belief system is epitomized by the famous and best seller book of the American intellectual juggler Francis Fukuyama titled “The End of History and the Last Man”, published in 1989.
This book had helped create the doctrine of “Bombing for Democracy” (if they won’t accept western value, bring it to them there with bombs”, and “humanitarian intervention” (spread diseases, famines, or create terror in order to get in, and make the west export its best product “democracy”).
The worst consequence of that ideology is however the rise of extreme right and conservative groups in the West which would be impossible to stop. The underlying trigger is “We need to preserve the present order. This current order is at our advantage and the emergence of the brown people is not good for us”.
The world would pay a high price for an illusion sold to White people by their elite: “We will keep the world as it’s now, with the white man and woman at the top of the food chain. We promise that to you, and we will deliver that to you”.
Unfortunately for Europeans, no one can stop history. Now or later change is inevitable, and the brown people won’t stay forever under the current predatory system.
The end of history theory has done so much damage already, and will continue to do more, unless the West would concede that the world is diverse, and change in rank and status is natural.
Trying to Stop history would create more violence.
Right wing parties and conservative groups in Europe and America would become more popular and more influential and would shape the near future of those regions, and probably the world, if that illusion is not debunked by the same elite.
The unstopped rise of Conservatism in the west is currently the highest danger to world peace and the stability.
