What is "The Other Side of History"?

Hello, and welcome to my first blog - "The Other Side of History"!

What is this blog about? First, what it isn't about...

It isn't about "The undiscovered Country, from whose bourne No Traveller returns," which is a Shakespearian allusion to death. Unless you read it in the original Klingonese, in which case it means "the future".

Nor will this blog be directly about "The End of History and the Last Man," in which Francis Fukuyama claimed that "Western liberal democracy" will be the universal, final form of political ideology.

It would be close to say, however, that the subject of this blog is how "the end of history" and the Klingon "undiscovered country" will not make cowards of us all.

So really, what will this blog be about? The specifics will be clear after the first few entries, hopefully written before the start of next week.
