Against Mainstreaming

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

1,120 words

Some in the “movement” – including some “movement intellectuals” – are championing the concept of “mainstreaming” and cite France’s Front National (FN) as a sterling example of this paradigm. After all, as these “movement” think tankers report, the FN, it seems, is these days saying it doesn’t matter if the French become a minority of the population of France.

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 …
