Man's intrinsic nature is tribal, not universalist. Liberal democracy denies this, leaving lib. dem. regimes vulnerable to cultural and political subversion. Universalism imagines that mankind can eventually be molded into single, homogenous culture. Universalism is not compatible with Islam (which divides the world into believers and nonbelievers), nor with Judaism ( which has one set of laws for Jews and another for non-Jews), nor with Chinese culture (Han culture is believed to be superior to others), nor with Russian culture (which understands itself to be higher than others - ask the Russian Orthodox Church). For all of Herzl's valiant efforts towards the establishment of a Jewish state, he provided his children with little or no connection to Judaism. The sad stories of their lives are recorded in history. Who, in the end will survive -- Universalists, or the Chinese and the Russians?
