The millenarian longing for a world where all systems are destroyed, all problems are solved, and everything is permissible – that’s dangerous whether it comes from Puritans or Communists. All she wants to do is make little tweaks – a better tax policy here, a new foreign policy doctrine there. Hillary represents complete safety from millennialism. Trump’s policy ideas are mostly silly, but no one cares, because he’s not really running on policy.

The average American has a one in sixty million chance of determining the election results.

Finally, it ends with the World-Spirit completely incarnated – possibly in the form of early 19th century Prussia – and everything is great forever.

Marx famously exports Hegel’s mysticism into a materialistic version where the World-Spirit operates upon class relations rather than the interconnectedness of all things, and where you don’t come out and call it the World-Spirit – but he basically keeps the system intact.

I’m not going to talk much about these because I don’t think I can change anyone’s mind here – either you agree with me (and disagree with Trump) on things like abortion, global warming, free trade, et cetera, or you don’t.

A two sentence argument in a blog post won’t change your mind either way.
