Cervantes and Simulation

The plight at the heart of Modernity, the infected wound in our politics and in the heart of Don Quixote, is the incommensurability of our ideology with our world. For Quixote, the void between his ideal and the external world was filled with the available media – books – because the world threatened to negate his ideology. It was easier for him to fall into his escapist fantasies than to synthesize the world with his ideal. This threatened erasure makes the Don, as well as the modern subject, concerned for the erasure of their entire identity.

LARPing for a Vision: Dead Forms and Zombie Ideas

BAP says that the ownership of space is the fundamental conflict. That conclusion follows easily from the fact that our world is one of limited resources, and that we are limited beings. And because, as Aristotle said, all men are members of polities (unless you are a monster or a god). Thus, the most fundamental conflict in politics is your group’s ownership of space versus another group’s ownership of space.

A Preface to Bronze Age Mindset

Michael Anton is not merely a Straussian; he is a former national security official in the Trump administration, speechwriter for Rudy Guiliani, and managing director at Blackrock. It would not be unusual for such a man to write a book review. It would be unusual for him to grant the time of day to something written by a pseudonymous author who calls himself the “Bronze Age Pervert”, alternatively “BAP.” Yet Anton did indeed review the book Bronze Age Mindset for the Claremont Institute, concluding his 5000 word piece: “conservatism is losing. BAP-ism is winning.”
