Evangelists of Democracy | The National Interest:
Liberal democrats are gloating over the triumph of liberalism and democracy everywhere. From Daniel Bell's End of Ideology to Francis Fukuyama's End of History it has been claimed that ideologies are no longer at war against one another and there is an ideological convergence in the world now. There is democratic triumphant today. But these liberal democrats forget the lessons of great liberal John Stuart Mill, who advocated the case of liberty against democracy. Democracy may well be majority tyranny having a disdain for liberalism. The irony is that sometimes liberals turn out to be greatest illiberals.
