There has been a fundamental shift in world history. This paradigm shift is the triumph of the West and its economic and political liberalism. The universalization of Western culture is the end of history in that it marks the end of ideological development and shifts.
From now on, Liberalism is the ideal that will govern the world in the long-run.
1. Ideology is more important than material in explaining economic decisions
"The end of history will be a very sad time. The struggle for recognition, the willingness to risk one's life for a purely abstract goal, the worldwide ideological struggle that called forth daring,
courage, imagination, and idealism, will be replaced by economic calculation, the endless solving of technical problems, environmental concerns, and the satisfaction of sophisticated consumer demands."
