In her book On the Political, Chantal Mouffe adumbrated the notion of the post-political, characterizing it as a predominant “view which informs the ‘common sense’ in a majority of western societies.” Mouffe characterizes this condition as a situation in which the

“free world” has triumphed over communism and, with the weakening of collective identities, a world “without enemies” is now possible. Partisan conflicts are a thing of the past and consensus can now be obtained through dialogue. Thanks to globalization and the universalization of liberal democracy, we can expect a cosmopolitan future bringing peace, prosperity and the implementation of human rights worldwide.
