Salisbury Review Article on Transnational Progressivism.

Readers of this web-log may be interested to read an article I have written on "Transnational Progressivism", published in the current edition of the Salisbury Review. Briefly, the argument is that the tenets of transnational progressivism naturally arise from an abstract defence of liberal democracy, & that consequently we can defend liberal democracy from transnational progressivism only on the conservative grounds that we are used to it & it suits us, rather than on the grounds that it is always & everywhere the best system of government conceivable. The implications for neo-conservative politico-cultural imperialism are obvious. Nor is it surprising that the enforced export of liberal democracy abroad should coincide with a depletion of it at home.
