It is clear here that Clinton’s view of politics and history, which certainly reflects American and more generally, Western political thought, far from bringing freedom, as they claim, in fact negates and destroys it. In such a conception, human societies become mere servants of the law of progress, and those that oppose this law become obstacles to be removed. All other things set aside, this is the ideology that drove the two totalitarian movements of the 20th century. If the Marxian concept of History is an accurate description of modernity, then modernity leaves no room for human freedom, at least certainly not in the political sphere. Perhaps this explains the profound despair and endless search for freedom that we see daily. Is then our problem with modernity? We are certainly at a time we should start thinking about our place in history and, above all, about who we are.
