Why Modern People Can’t Solve Big Problems Like Climate Change, War, and Poverty: The Illiberal Mindset

The illiberalization of people has cultivated the selfish and egocentric nature of individuals. For those who in power, it feeds an egoistically mindset that prevents them from seeing beyond their own ideas and preconceived notions. It also convinces them they are indispensable as leaders, thus they grasp onto power at the expense of their constituents. Humans are naturally selfish and egocentric, but they are also altruistic, introspective, and inquisitive. Where liberalization encourages people to look at each other as individuals and show concern for each others’ wellbeing, illiberalization primes the worst parts of human psychology. No longer does the welfare of the community or its members matter to the illiberal individual. People should be allowed to do as they please and those who hurt others harshly judged, when it is unavoidablely apparent, but they have no responsibility for the social consequences of their actions. Modern people cannot solve major issues, because they do not see their shared interests and responsibilities nor do they see themselves as members of a community. They certainly do not act as communities.

As The US and China Conflict, Liberalization At Home Poisons The Communist Party

The Chinese government finds itself in a peculiar and precarious position. The Communist Party of China maintains full control over the People’s Republic of China with General Secretary Xi Jinping steadily consolidating and solidifying more power, yet China is also a highly influential member and beneficiary of a global capitalist economy and liberal world order. With the US under the control of President Donald Trump, it faces an intensifying trade war with its greatest economic partner and rival. Due to its attempts to buildup its military prowess and assert control over its self-proclaimed territory, Beijing risks inflaming the South China Sea Crisis as well as various conflicts with its regional rivals. To boot, it seems fears of mass civil unrest and rebellion may well soon become a reality as the Chinese Peoples appear to be increasingly critical of their leadership for itself failures to manage economic and international issues.
