After examining the contents of "modern progressivism," I draw out the implications of what form liberalism should take in future societies. The difference between optimism and pessimism about the possibilities of human potential—the difference between denial and approval of skepticism—is rooted in the opposition between progressivism and conservatism, and these two intellectual positions sum up the vicissitudes of the human intellect. While there is certainly antagonism contained in this relationship, the relationship between progressivism and conservatism is not one in which the retreat of one would mean the victory of the other, but rather a rivalry or dialectic, in the original sense of the word.
For these changes to occur, the advanced countries must, above all else, discipline themselves to refrain from forcing on others the path they themselves have followed. At the end of the twentieth century, we must believe that the conditions for establishing a new progressivism do not exist. A unique ideal state (or its cognizability and realizability) does not follow from the logic of equality of outcomes. The preservation of the tropical rain forests is much talked about at present, but it was the former agriculturists who destroyed the forests on the Eurasian continent, and it is their descendants who have built today's industrial civilization.
Whether in the former Soviet Union or in China, the possibility of reverting to the old system is nil. We now face the general question of whether or not we can maintain this unambiguous future orientation. This has been and still is the dominant image of international relations. Thus, a farewell to progressivism may well have to be prescribed, not only for Japan but for all countries. For these changes to occur, the advanced countries must, above all else, discipline themselves to refrain from forcing on others the path they themselves have followed.
