Abstract

In 1989, Francis Fukuyama proposed in The End of History and the Last Man that the fall oc communism signaled the end of human history. He postulated that everyone would now rally behind liberal capitalism and there would be nothing left to fight about. Subsequent events have proven Fukuyama to be an extraordinarily bad historian. Communism was a glass-jawed opponent. Facism, however, with its attendant racism, religious bigotry, and genocide seems alive and well. With this in mind, we have sought to identify common patterns of mass murder with an eye toward preventing what may not be cured.
