Liberal eschatology?

For some political leaders it is apparently not enough to defend the wisdom of a particular policy agenda; it must be plugged into a grand eschatological vision with an obvious spiritual provenance: "Those who place their hope in freedom may be attacked and challenged, but they will not ultimately be disappointed, because freedom is the design of humanity and freedom is the direction of history." It seems Hegel and Marx have some competition from south of the border.
