PLATO'S VERSION OF THE IDEAL STATE has always been the most promising idea that has ever existed in political philosophy. He posited a view of an ideal state headed by philosopher kings. His political theory is a mixture of communism and capitalism.

According to Plato, philosophers are the minds of any state. They get through several tests and learnt many disciplines for several years. Since they are laid with the responsibility of running the ideal state, they are not supposed to have any property, nuptial life or children. All they have to do is to invest their lives for the betterment of the state.

AMERICAN POLITICAL SCIENTIST FRANCIS FUKUYAMA - whose 1993 book became an instant bestseller.

The book, The End of History, was written after the 1991 collapse of the Union of Soviet Socialist  Republics, the USSR, and the breakup of the country founded by Lenin and made into a global empire by Stalin.

According to Fukuyama, recent world history saw bloody conflicts between ideologies. Two world wars were fought when one ideology tried to defeat the other. First, it was the battle between South and Central European authoritarianism against Western European and American liberalism.

The West won. The second world war was once again pitted the same ideologies and once again the West came out the winner.

These wars were followed by a cold war that lasted for much longer. For 46 years - from 1945 when the Second World War ended to 1991 when the USSR broke up into constituent parts - the contest was between the belief that all policymaking should be left to the state and the equally strong belief that individuals should be left alone to their own way of life.

Western liberalism was once again the victor and the shape of domestic politics that emerged minimised government's influence and control over individual lives.

Current world affairs are once again subject to several ideological conflicts. Four of these have taken shape in the last few years. What distinguishes them from the previous episodes is that two of these are the product of domestic struggles which at times have flowed into the international arena.

There is a conflict among what some analysts have called illiberalism when the extreme left and the extreme right have turned on each other, especially in the United States and taken a dangerous turn in the United States. But America is not the only Western nation where the struggle is being waged.

Hungary and Poland are two other Western European nations that are engaged in defining their democratic future. There is also an ongoing struggle between the extremists and modernists in several parts of the Muslim world.

There is increasing rivalry between the world's current superpowers, the United States and China. China and Russia, United States main global rivals, are approaching with the type of confidence that America once had and showed to the rest of the world.

The Chinese economy has increased in size by an amount never seen in human history before. In 2007, it was 16 times its size in 1980 when the Supreme Leader Deng Xiaoping decided to open the country. 

TURNING NOW to the developing situation in Eastern Europe created by Russia's President Vladimir Putin whose recent actions have brought the world closer to a global conflagration than at any time since the end of the long Cold War.

The question 'what is the Russian leader looking for is being asked by diplomats, scholars and diplomat-turned-scholars. 

To the last category belongs Fiona Hill, currently a senior fellow at Brookings Institution after having served more than a couple of decades in various capacities in the United States government watching Russia including Putin.

The Russian president's current ''aim is bigger than closing NATO's open door'' to Ukraine, and taking more territory'', she wrote in a recent article. He had acquired more territory in 2014 when he snatched the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine and then went on to support a separatist war in the eastern part of the country.

This time ''he wants to evict the United States from Europe. As he might put it : 'Goodbye America. Don't let the door hit you on the way out'.''

Russia wants to rewrite security arrangements in Eastern Europe, the part of the continent it wants to dominate.

It has demanded iron-clad guarantees that the former republics of Eastern Europe that were once part of the USSR will never join the NATO and that the defence organisation will pull back from positions taken after 1997 and also that Washington withdraws its forces and weapons including its nuclear missiles.
