Machiavelli, realpolitik and the collapse of politics,

If we examine world history in the context of the eonic effect we see that it never induces, war, or realpolitik
Such are human inventions in the same way that rats are inexorable interlopers on civil infrastructure.
Machiavelli appears as a relative outsider to the modern transition, speaks to the history of medieval Italian city-states, is resisted over and over,
is challenged by Kant et al, and then into the field of modern politics irreversibly corrupting the
whole game and opening the door to the army of psychopaths that have taken over modern civilization.
Machiavelli confuses because he has two sides, a republican and an ethical proto-Nietsche.
He influenced the early founders of the US but then his other side entered, and we cans see how his legacy
is a slow-acting poison.
You cannot penetrate the realm of those who now control modern society with any argument according to
political ethics in any form and in any case the whole political caste adopts a species of Christianity, theism, and its
ethical canon, in total cynicism against the reality of Machiavellian cancer.
Noting much can avail here, but as with Afghanistan, the power elite goes too far and their game starts to collapse
Humanity has not learned how to conduct politics, not at all, and in the end ratocracy always prevails.

One thought on “Machiavelli, realpolitik and the collapse of politics,
