What can you say about the crisis of the liberal idea itself?
Answer: Humanity is in misunderstanding of itself. What kind of liberalism can there be?! How can there be love for one’s neighbor, participation, equality, or brotherhood if we are egoists and cannot correct our nature ourselves? Then what is there to talk about?! Philosophy? It gives nothing!
You need to know how to correct your nature. After that, you can talk. And until we have corrected it, we still remain little selfish animals. No matter how we cover ourselves, it is a fig leaf, under which there is nothing.
