Freedom

 More than 15years ago, F. Fukuyama wrote the End of History and the Last Man. "Liberal democracies could, in the long run, be subverted internally either by an excess of megalothymia, or by an excess of isothymia, that is the fanatical desire for equal recognition". He further wrote: "It is my intuition that it is the former that will constitute the greater threat to democracy in the end. Megalothymia: A term coined by Francis Fukuyama, building on Plato's concept of the spiritual part of the soul, which drives tyrannical ambition; the compulsion to be superior to others. Let us pray that today, America will make the right decision. Based on extract of phone call between President Trump and the Secretary of State of Georgia Brad Raffensperger, published on CNN website.
