After the end of the cold war, political scholars declared “the end of history”. but the progressive movement of popular movement remains committed to the creation of a new world, the imperialist heritage of the struggle against exploitation and oppression, until years ago. At the point of the key historic turning point – Trump takes on the United States President, its European allies reject globalization, but the president of China and others are strongly committed to it. How is the world changing? How do we change the analysis? In the new world order, how can a broad range of popular alliances be established?
After the end of the Cold War, political scientists proclaimed “the end of history”. Nevertheless, progressive people’s movements continued to strive to build a new world in opposition to imperialism’s heritage of exploitation and oppression, until this momentum also began to weaken over a decade ago. We are now at a crucial historic turning point, with Trump the new US president and his friends in Europe opposing globalization, while Xi Jin Ping and others champion it. How has the world changed? How should our analysis change? How do we build a broad people’s alliance in the new world order?
