Interesting.Well, not really. It is all based on stupid theory. Really stupid theory. De Jouvenel for example makes the very clear point that divided governance structures will engage in conflict with each other, from which it becomes clear that this conflict will override overall coherence of the polity, and this will influence culture by default. Hence right and left, and the general binary nature of all things in a divided governance structure (this is a republican affliction, or to be precise, an Imperium in imperio affliction.)

None of the theory underlying Neoreaction/ Patri Friedman and now Mark Lutter’s ideas, come within a million miles of De Jouvenel. They just push snake oil.
