Schmitt, Soberania e o Estado Profundo

schmitt2,274 palavras

English original here

Em Teologia Política, seu pequeno livro sobre o conceito de soberania, Carl Schmitt afirma que “Soberano é aquele que decide sobre o Estado de Exceção” [1]. Soberania significa autoridade política suprema, por oposição à sujeição política. Em uma sociedade, o soberano é o governante, por oposição ao governado. Uma nação soberana se governa, por oposição a ser governada por outros.

Schmitt, Sovereignty, & the Deep State

schmitt2,119 words

Portuguese translation here

In Political Theology, his short book on the concept of sovereignty, Carl Schmitt states that: “Sovereign is he who decides on the exception.”[1] Sovereignty means supreme political authority, as opposed to political subjection. Within a society, the sovereign is the ruler, as opposed to the ruled. A sovereign nation rules itself, as opposed to being ruled by others.

Carl Schmitt on the Tyranny of Values

2,108 words

Gerrit van Honthorst, Croesus and Solon, 1624

Gerrit van Honthorst, Croesus and Solon, 1624

Carl Schmitt’s two essays on “The Tyranny of Values” (1959 and 1967) are typical of his work. They contain simple and illuminating ideas which are nevertheless quite difficult to piece together because Schmitt presents them only through complex conversations with other thinkers and schools of thought. In “The Tyranny of Values” essays, Schmitt’s target is “moralism,” which boils down to doing evil while one thinks one is doing good. Read more …

Isolationism & Pan-Interventionism

Shining_City_Upon_a_Hill_by_hawk862280 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

The American pretense of forming a new and uncorrupted world was tolerable for others as long as it remained associated with isolationist policies. A global line dividing the world in a binary manner in terms of good and evil is a line based on moral values. When it is not strictly limited to defense and self-isolation, it becomes a permanent political provocation to the other side of the planet.

Editor’s Note:

The following text, which was written in 1967, is one of two essays Carl Schmitt published under the title “The Tyranny of Values.” Both were reprinted in Carl Schmitt, Die Tyrannei der Werte (Hamburg: Lutherisches Verlagshaus, 1979). The translation is from Carl Schmitt, The Tyranny of Values, ed. and trans. Simona Draghici (Washington, D.C.: Plutarch Press, 1996), which is out of print and very hard to find. If anyone knows the translator, please put me in contact.

Myth, Utopia, & Pluriversal Realism

Kris Kurski, "Imminent Utopia"

Kris Kurski, “Imminent Utopia”

905 words

Portuguese translation here

Georges Sorel divided social and political formations into two types: (1) those which had a myth as the basis for their ideology, and (2) those which appealed to utopian ideas. The first category he attributed to revolutionary socialism, where the true revolutionary myths are not descriptions of phenomena, but the expression of human will. Read more …
