The dream factory

All alt-right and reactionary thinking which is not anchored in De Jouvenel’s insights is quite simply politics as wish. De Jouvenel’s insights leave no room for wish, and lead to conclusions which no one would want, or wish, had they the option. But they don’t. So you are left with a stark problem. If you imagine you can split sovereignty against itself, you are delusional, and you are setting in motion a process of grinding destruction. Any “We can set up really good blocks” stomping of feet is wish. Pure childish wish.
