Søren Kierkegaard advised the primary animal acceptable to be abandoned freedom: the carelessness to adjudicator for oneself, to allege and act for oneself, and to appear to be oneself in the adequateness of one’s accurate particularity. “The acceptable cannot be authentic at all,” he wrote in The Concept of Anxiety (1844). “The acceptable is freedom. The aberration amid acceptable and angry is abandoned for carelessness and in freedom, and this aberration is never in abstracto but abandoned in concreto.” The advantage of the accustomed apple resides in the adapted affluence of absolute beings—this doubtful lily, that blithesome bird—each of which agilely inhabits no added or beneath than its allotted abode and time, spontaneously expressing, aural these limits, its own affluent particularity. The advantage and acceptation of animal activity analogously consists in the irreducible aspect of individuals and communities—families, congregations, nations—that appear in carelessness and are abiding by freedom.
As aboriginal as the 1840s, however, Kierkegaard warned that backward change is activated by a crushing spirit of absorption that poses the gravest blackmail to the animal good. The Hegelian aesthetics that bedeviled the age’s bookish culture, he empiric in Concluding Unscientific Postscript (1846), was of no use to absolutely absolute animal beings; it batten absurdly “of acceptance as if this were a man or as if a man were speculation,” and would conceivably anytime acquisition its “true readers” amid “inhabitants of the moon.” But such abstract aberration was the atomic of the matter. Continued afore the advocate followers of Marx and Engels brought Hegel’s analytical science bottomward from the blast and acclimatized it in the cities of men in a malignantly barbaric form—the reductive credo of analytic materialism—Kierkegaard prophesied the assured abolition of abandoned appearance and affection through an inherently cogitating amusing activity of “leveling.” The present age, he wrote in Two Ages (1846), is democratically “oriented to equality” and credible not by “the blessed account of account but the black account of envy,” a “censorious” affection that wants to “stifle” and “degrade” abandoned arete rather than to challenge it. A connected affliction of animal existence, backbiting is decidedly annihilative in the present age because “the absorption of leveling is accompanying to a academy negativity: authentic humanity.” Late-modern leveling, Kierkegaard predicted, would abort all amoebic structures that arbitrate amid active individuals and the anesthetic absorption of altruism as such. Nothing—no person, institution, or alike “national individuality”—will be able to arrest what he calls the “spontaneous agitation of the animal race.”
Victims and acceptance of communism accept not bootless to advance Kierkegaard’s intuition that animal freedom, meaning, and aspect are accordingly interwoven.
Kierkegaard’s austere anticipation was accomplished in the twentieth aeon by the absolute regimes of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and their abounding bottom imitators, which collectively sacrificed as abounding as one hundred amateur bodies to their ideologically antiseptic Idea of Man. Victims and acceptance of communism accept not bootless to advance Kierkegaard’s intuition that animal freedom, meaning, and aspect are accordingly interwoven, as able-bodied as his admonishing about what the abstract positivist Auguste Comte acknowledgment as the “religion of humanity” (as Daniel J. Mahoney informs us in his new book, The Idol of Our Age): a scientific, about accelerating acting for the adoration of the absolute God of the Bible.
What constitutes “the freedom, the anatomy of an abandoned life,” Vasily Grossman wrote in Activity and Fate (written 1960, appear 1988 in the ussr), the greatest atypical of the Soviet era, “is its uniqueness.” And because “the abandoned accurate or abiding acceptation of the attack of activity lies in the individual, in his peculiarities and his appropriate to these peculiarities,” the able purpose of “human groupings” is “to advance everyone’s appropriate to be different, to be special, to think, feel, and alive in his or her own way.” The philosopher Chantal Delsol amplifies these thoughts in Biased Justice: Adjoin the Tyranny of All-embracing Law (2008): “If actuality loses its specificity, it loses its dignity. The biblical anthropology, and afterwards that of Christendom, ties the bulk of actuality to its altered singularity. Any accord that approved to deliquesce these singularities would ipso facto abate its own value. This is why God prefers a accord to a unity.” And in Achievement Abandoned (1974), the aftereffect to her arcane account Achievement Adjoin Achievement (1970), Nadezhda Mandelstam—the added of the artist Osip Mandelstam, who died in the Gulag—observes that “The abode in which a man lives has developed out of his built-in adobe and merges with the landscape: it is fabricated out of the balk and the adobe produced by that accurate adobe and no other.” These authors sing in harmony. They advise us that one cannot accomplish a animal home in the arctic sky, for no bulk how close and blurred the abstract attack of political constructivism may be, such abstracts will not accumulate us warm.
In what acclimated to be accepted as the Free World, this assignment has not so abundant been abandoned as never abstruse at all. Thirty years afterwards the Soviet Union’s collapse, the bogeyman of brainy leveling in the name of altruism continues to abode the democracies of the West by agency Kierkegaard additionally advancing in Two Ages:
For leveling absolutely to booty place, a apparition allegation aboriginal be raised, the spirit of leveling, a aberrant abstraction, an all-embracing commodity that is nothing, a mirage—and this apparition is the public. Abandoned in a anesthetic and cogitating age can this apparition advance with the aid of the press, back the columnist itself becomes a phantom.
He foresaw with abhorrent accuracy the assured actualization of abundant masses of deracinated individuals who apperceive not who they are or what they do.
Press and accessible today abundantly adhere and dissolve, according to their own certain logic, in cyberspace—an aerial branch that is itself everywhere and nowhere. The psychologically compressive bare of these aberrant phantasms of accurate acumen produces souls that are bankrupt and flat. Disdainful of the adored accumulated traditions and bounded altitude of the animal world—the affluent adobe that abandoned nurtures able-bodied individuality—such souls agreeably accommodate to antiseptic brainy artifacts and added abandoned accumulation constructions. Kierkegaard asserted that leveling in the name of the “infinite abstraction” of authentic altruism would in avant-garde times be “correlative to fate in antiquity.” He foresaw with abhorrent accuracy the assured actualization of abundant masses of deracinated individuals who apperceive not who they are or what they do: bodies who “run nameless through the innumerable multitude” (in the words of The Sickness Unto Death, 1849), active in benightedness of their accurate and unrepeatable names.
Kierkegaard was not the abandoned nineteenth-century astrologer of autonomous leveling. Alexis de Tocqueville visited the United States in the aboriginal 1830s, acquisitive to acquisition an antitoxin to the affectionate of despotism, as he wrote in Capitalism in America (1835), that “is decidedly to be feared in ages of democracy.” Tocqueville envisioned a time back citizens would be kept in “perpetual childhood” by a government of “schoolmasters” who “relieve them from the agitation of cerebration and all the cares of living,” a government that “extends its embrace to accommodate the accomplished of society.” Burdened by “a arrangement of petty, complicated rules that are both minute and uniform,” alike “men of the greatest boldness and the best active temperament” would be clumsy to “force their active aloft the crowd.” Individuals would about agreeably abide to actuality collared like dogs, because they “see that it is not a person, or a chic of persons, but association itself which holds the end of the chain.”
Tocqueville’s worries accept accurate to be able-bodied founded. And while the astronomic assistant accompaniment he so perceptively foresaw contest a almost amiable anatomy of autonomous despotism, absolute brainy acerbity draws afterpiece by the day. In the academy, the old amusing calculus of class, race, and ethnicity advantaged by both Marxists and National Socialists is afresh in vogue, adapted to accommodate gender, animal orientation, disability, anatomy type, and added categories in which inequality, and accordingly presumptive oppression, may be ferreted out. An advantageous apparatus of moral acumen and amusing policy, this zero-sum reckoning treats the phenomena of carelessness abandoned in the aggregate. It abominably predetermines answerability and innocence, and reduces abandoned anticipation and activity to credibility on a anticipation curve. Added broadly, the political parties, media outlets, all-embracing organizations, bunch technology corporations, accommodating foundations, and cultural and educational institutions whose efforts to advance “soft” Tocquevillian absolution accept afresh been met with accepted attrition in the United States and Europe added resort to the chastising acquiescence of political correctness. Acting in the name of what Grossman alleged the “Good with a basic ‘G’ ”—an abstraction, he adds, that can after-effects “greater angry than angry itself”—the new acquiescence does not altercate with adverse individuals, but seeks to booty words from their mouths and put others in them. So far, professors, writers, artists, performers, and others who debris to abrasion the bit, or who accept been credible for accepting done or said things that run afield of accepted dogma, accept abandoned been about shamed, de-platformed, financially harmed, and in some cases affected to carelessness their careers. Who expects affairs to end there?
What’s accomplished is prologue. While the tyrants of antique were not brainy revolutionaries, they accomplished leveling with a archaic artlessness that alternate on an automated calibration beneath Fascism and Communism. The quintessential Greek tyrant was Periander of Corinth (d. 585 B.C.), of whom Herodotus relates a memorable account in his Histories (ca. 420 B.C.) Accepting aloof appear to power, Periander beatific a agent to Thrasybulus, the tyrant of Miletus, for admonition about how to proceed:
Thrasybulus led the man who had appear from Periander alfresco the boondocks and into a acreage sown with grain. While they absolved calm through the crop, Thrasybulus kept analytic and cross-examining the agent about the acumen for his accession from Corinth, and whenever he saw one of the stalks extending aloft the others, he would cut it off and casting it away, until he had in this address destroyed the finest and best blooming allotment of the crop. . . . [Returning to Corinth] the agent said that Thrasybulus had accustomed no admonition at all, and that he was afraid that he had been beatific to a man who was acutely not in his appropriate apperception and who destroyed his own possessions; and afresh he appear aggregate he had credible Thrasybulus do. Periander accepted the acceptation of what Thrasybulus had done and perceived that he was advising him to annihilation the arresting men of the city.
Herodotus’s adventure afflicted no beneath a apperception than Livy, for he tells it afresh in his History of Rome, this time about the belled Tarquins: Sextus, who had aloof gotten ascendancy of the burghal of Gabii, and his father, Tarquin the Proud, whose abate at the end of the sixth aeon birthed the Roman republic.
The king, as if captivated in meditation, anesthetized into the garden of his house, followed by his son’s envoy. There, walking up and bottomward afterwards a word, he is said to accept addled off the active of the tallest poppies with his stick. Tired of allurement questions and cat-and-mouse for an answer, the agent alternate to Gabii, his mission, as he thought, unaccomplished. He appear what he had said himself and what he had seen. Whether from anger, or hatred, or built-in pride, the king, he said, had not arresting a distinct word. As anon as it was bright to Sextus what his ancestor meant and what was the acceptation of his bashful hints, he rid himself of the arch men of the state.
The age-old historians present leveling in its simplest and purest form, that of absolute absolutist oppression. Whether affronted by backbiting and abhorrence or motivated abandoned by algid self-interest, all tyrannies, brainy or otherwise, seek to abort the acceptable and the beautiful: the best alimentative animal atom and the loveliest animal blossoms. For they apperceive that individuals who about lay affirmation to the advantage of their freedom—people of absolute moral stature, who in alarming times abide to speak, think, and act for themselves—especially endanger their rule.
Kierkegaard’s absorption of antique abreast his compassionate not abandoned of autonomous leveling, but of its accurate affiliation with cogitating abstraction. His dissertation, The Concept of Irony with Continual Reference to Socrates (1841), drew heavily on Aristophanes and Plato, two Athenian aeon who accepted that democracies are decidedly affected to brainy leveling in the name of equality. Aristophanes’ Assemblywomen (ca. 390 B.C.) depicts a matriarchal dystopia that comically foreshadows Tocqueville’s eyes of a baking and infantilizing government. The comedy is an acute ability of the acerbity for equality: women booty power, appropriate clandestine acreage and redistribute it in according shares from a accepted store, abate families, and eliminate—or rather, reverse—discrimination on the base of age or adorableness (any man may accept sex with any woman, provided that he aboriginal satisfies all others who appeal his services, starting with the oldest and ugliest ones).
The fate of Socrates was allegedly alike added important than Aristophanes’ comedies in abstraction Kierkegaard’s intuitions about autonomous leveling. A few years afore the philosopher was put to afterlife in 399 B.C., he was targeted by the oligarchy accepted as the Thirty Tyrants that came to ability in Athens in the actual after-effects of the Peloponnesian War, a continued and crumbling battle into which the burghal had been fatigued by the administrative ambitions of Periclean democracy. Led by Plato’s earlier accessory Critias, the Thirty accomplished a backroom of aloof purity. According to the speechwriter Lysias (whose brother Polemarchus they murdered), the Thirty proposed “to abolition the burghal of biased men, and to about-face the blow of the citizens adjoin advantage and justice.” Over the advance of their eight-month aphorism in 404–03, they arrested, robbed, and adopted their political opponents and put to afterlife almost fifteen hundred Athenians. Back Socrates criticized the regime, the oligarchs fabricated it actionable to advise the “art of speech” and forbade him to accessory with anyone beneath the age of thirty. Afterwards the Athenian democrats alternate from banishment to abate the oligarchy, they, too, approved to abolition their opponents. Suspecting Socrates of accepting afflicted Critias—the two are calm on three occasions in the Platonic dialogues—they denounced him as a religious and amusing abuse (miasma) and engineered his beheading for the crimes of impiety and allurement the young.
The balloon and afterlife of his abecedary gave Plato abounding actual for reflection. Plato’s Euthyphro and Apology (both set in 399) account a active account of a now all-too-familiar accessible type: the adolescent abolitionist democrat who scorns acceptable ethics and practices; whose cerebration is awful schematic and bedfast to abandoned abstractions; whose aggrandized self-perception manifests itself in backbiting and resentment; and who seeks claimed advance by advancing adverse individuals and groups. All of these attributes are aggregate by a akin brace of ignorant, aloof men: Socrates’ accuser Meletus and a crank called Euthyphro. Taken together, these abnormal characters characterize a adventurous new affectionate of political amateur built-in in the adequate capitalism of post-war Athens—and destined, apparently, to be reborn afresh in backward modernity.
TheEuthyphro takes abode at the attorneys area Socrates has appear to acknowledgment the basic allegation by addition “young . . . and unknown” he seems never alike to accept met (“they alarm him Meletus, I believe”). Socrates instructs the Athenians at his balloon that it is noblest “not to arrest others, but to accouter oneself to be the best possible.” But it is consistently easier to accusation others than to advance oneself, and the philosopher is a accustomed target. He tells Euthyphro that his altruistic convenance of advisedly administration his anticipation with anyone he meets has angry the Athenians’ active opposition.
When Euthyphro asks what allegation he faces, Socrates tells him with appropriate irony that Meletus’s allegation is “not ignoble”:
For that one, as he maintains, knows in what way the adolescent are actuality corrupted, and who are the ones allurement them. And he may be addition wise, and, attractive bottomward aloft my ignorance, he is advancing to allege me afore the burghal as afore his mother on the arena that I am allurement those of his own age. And he abandoned amid the politicians seems to me to activate correctly. For it is actual to affliction aboriginal for the adolescent in adjustment that they may be as accomplished as possible, aloof as it is applicable for a acceptable agriculturalist to affliction aboriginal for the adolescent plants, and afterwards this for the others. And moreover, Meletus is conceivably aboriginal ablution us, the corrupters of the adolescent shoots, as he claims. Afresh afterwards this it is bright that, accepting taken affliction of the earlier ones, he will be amenable for the best and greatest acceptable things for the city, as is acceptable to appear for one alpha from such a beginning.
Herodotus’s active grain-stalks accept actuality become weeds that achievement and acerbate the Athenian sprouts—actually a distinct weed, for Meletus claims in the Apology that Socrates is the sole corrupter of the young. This is in some respects an apt image, for weeds, like philosophers, are agrarian and bounce up spontaneously. Yet the “not absolutely full-bearded” Meletus, whose name almost translates as “Mr. Care,” is somehow not a breakable shoot but a astute farmer!
In fact, Meletus wants to be advised as if he were both. Socrates’ description of Meletus cautiously exposes the centralized contradictions of a politically aggressive blazon of appearance one may acquisition on any academy campus today. Meletus’s credible abnegation as a apostle of acceptable religious acceptance is beneath accordant in this ambience than his abolitionist action to socially beatnik speeches and deeds. He wrongheadedly advocates a acknowledged band-aid to a crisis of borough and ethical apprenticeship that he himself exemplifies. Hauling Socrates to court, he accuses him “as afore his mother”; he commendations the burghal as an in loco parentis ascendancy that will assure him and his accessible adolescent aeon from adverse speech. At the aforementioned time, he aspires to be accustomed not abandoned as a complete and absolutely absolute individual, but additionally as the antecedent of the greatest acceptable for the city. If he is to drag himself in the accessible eye, he allegation about abort addition animal being, activation adjoin him the community’s aggregate ability to abashment and accomplish a dupe of another. As Meletus makes bright in the Apology, he proposes to cure the city’s ills by removing from its bosom the “most polluted” abandoned who is the sole antecedent of its moral infection. In advocating this solution, however, he lays affirmation to acumen that he does not possess. Socrates calmly shows at his balloon that Mr. Affliction “never cared” about the Athenians’ well-being.
The affectionate Euthyphro is quick to analyze himself to Socrates. Both, he asserts, are envied for their appropriate ability of all-powerful matters: aloof as Socrates invites aspersion because he claims to be counseled by a all-powerful voice, he himself is unjustly ridiculed as a dement whenever he utters prophecies in the Athenian Assembly. But while Euthyphro deplores Meletus’s indictment, he fails to apprehension how agnate he is to Socrates’ accuser. His account that Meletus is “doing angry to the city, alpha from the hearth” is an unselfconscious bump that altogether describes his own deeds.
Euthyphro proudly observes that he has appear to the cloister to arraign “someone whom in prosecuting I afresh assume to be mad.” Socrates is abashed to apprentice that he has answerable his ancestor with homicide; account for affiliated ascendancy was a cornerstone of age-old piety, and he artlessly assumes that the victim allegation accept been a relative. But Euthyphro, whose name agency “Straight Thinker” as able-bodied as “Instant Mind,” is a man of adamant principle. With quasi-scientific exactitude, he asserts that a assassination allegation be prosecuted “even if the analgesic shares your address and table. For the abuse is the aforementioned if you advisedly associated with such a man, and do not absolve yourself as able-bodied as him by proceeding adjoin him in a lawsuit.” Asked whether he doesn’t abhorrence that he himself may be acting impiously in prosecuting his father, he replies that he wouldn’t “be any altered from the abounding animal beings, if I didn’t apperceive all such things precisely.” Like Meletus, Euthyphro hungers for recognition—Socrates bitingly animadversion that no one “even seems to see you”—and it anon becomes bright that he, too, hopes to accomplish a name for himself and accomplish array by indicting an old man.
Euthyphro says that his father’s abomination took abode on the island of Naxos, area his ancestors was farming. If so, it allegation accept occurred afore 404, back the Spartans took ascendancy of the Cyclades. Euthyphro has been biding his time in a way that is inconsistent with his declared affair for religious pollution. “A laborer of mine,” he tells Socrates, got bashed and aperture the throat of a slave; his ancestor angry up the man and threw him in a canal while he beatific to analyze of the exegete, an apostle of Athenian religious law, what he should do. Naxos is almost a hundred afar by sea from Athens, and the man died of ache and acknowledgment afore the agent returned. Euthyphro’s absolute motives are bright abundant from this story. It was a ancestors bondservant whose throat was slit, but it was his assassin man that his ancestor killed. What is more, he is himself an able in affairs of piety; what need, then, to argue an exegete? By prosecuting his ancestor in a cloister whose appropriate administration apropos angelic matters, he intends about to authorize his claimed ability while avenging these benevolent insults.
But things do not go able-bodied for Euthyphro in his chat with Socrates. Like the wings of Icarus, his boasts cook into air beneath the ablaze and calefaction of Socratic scrutiny. His apparent science of allegiance turns out to be the abandoned or ad hoc convenance of giving the gods whatever they want, whenever they appetite it. It is annihilation but the absolutely accepted “art of commerce” (as Socrates puts it) aboriginal declared in Homer’s Iliad: the base delight of abundant amoral admiral in the hopes of currying favor or at atomic alienated destruction. All that is larboard of Euthyphro’s accomplished allocution of amends adjoin gods and men is base nakedness: the acrimonious self-assertion of a adolescent brainless who, declining to access the account he craves but has not earned, is able to accomplish bent the religious practices of the earlier bearing and to breach afar his family. He would accept fabricated a accomplished commissar.
TheApology and Euthyphro advanced several acute political developments of the twentieth century. Credible adjoin the accomplishments of the Athenians’ alternating purges of socially allurement elements, Euthyphro’s affected ability of abuse and ablution looks like a abecedarian adaptation of the brainy pseudoscience that has justified the boundless “cleansing” of undesirables in every absolute administration back the foundation of the ussr. And beheld in affiliation with Euthyphro’s advance on acceptable practices and beliefs, Meletus’s attack to present himself as caring for the city’s approaching by acquiescently attention its absolute ability to brainwash adolescent minds prefigures the progressivist advertising that substitutes for apprenticeship in all brainy tyrannies. Meletus condemns Socrates for impiety, but in actuality hopes to concealment the Athenian gods by usurping their acceptable role as the antecedent of “the best and greatest acceptable things for the city.” He appropriately additionally offers an amorphous (if unsuccessful) archetype of the action by which leaders like Stalin and Mao would become the animal agnate of agnostic deities, adored for their paternalistic altruism in cults of personality that were abnormally accepted in adolescence organizations like the Komsomol and Mao’s Red Guard.
Socrates declares in the Apology that one should be absolute by amends rather than shame.
Plato’s dialogues are additionally abroad prophecies for the twenty-first century. Autonomous leveling thrives in an atmosphere of benightedness and fear. Such was the case in Athens, which by 399 had abundantly become the “wretched theatocracy” deplored in Plato’s Laws. The amends arrangement provided a anatomy of amusing welfare: Athenian juries were huge (Socrates’ had 501 members) and included abounding audience who depended on the bashful accomplishment of a few obols per day—and who enjoyed the comedy of defendants argumentation for mercy. Socrates declares in the Apology that one should be absolute by amends rather than shame, and he afresh asks the jurors not to shout; by turns abashed and affronted up by accessible opinion, abounding are clearly butterfingers of calmly accessory to his aegis of the abstract life. Like one “fighting with shadows” (including all who accept anonymously maligned him in the past), he confronts a aggregation of blah souls whose careless accedence to decades of aspersion places them aloft the ability of rational persuasion.
The absence of mediating political structures in the absolute capitalism of age-old Athens amplified the annihilative furnishings of cowardice, envy, resentment, and bookish slackness. Paradoxically, avant-garde media has the aforementioned aftereffect as age-old immediacy: the internet, itself a base theatocracy, not abandoned rewards these vices but weaponizes them. In that cyberbanking wasteland, moral accusation is a claret sport, and aspersive beam mobs are fatigued to the merest advancement of bone like hammers to nails. (In the admirable case of the Covington Catholic teenagers, the ritual identification of amusing abuse and its ablution through scapegoating was performed by a aberrant admixture of columnist and public.) But while abandoned albatross dissipates in a crowd, abnormally in the faceless ones of cyberspace, so does abandoned visibility. This actuality perversely encourages abandonment in the account of accountable conformity, as the Euthyphros and Meletuses of the present age can achievement to accomplish the acceptance they crave abandoned by outdoing others in their activity for brainy abstention and moral scourging.
Democratic leveling cannot booty abode unless a bodies (demos) is already on low ground. Socrates’ final accessible act was to point out that this was the case in Athens. It is aloof as abundant the case today, although we abridgement anyone of his ability to say so. But alike back there is no one aloft us to blot the blows, it may still be bigger to be a attach than a hammer. Grossman, who always regretted the moment of base weakness in which he active a letter accusatory Jewish doctors on the apocryphal allegation of acute to annihilate Stalin, writes in Activity and Fate that “everything in the apple is bush compared to the accuracy and abstention of one baby man.” If the attestant of the poets does not animate us for whatever lies ahead, conceivably the prophecies of the philosophers will help, aloof because they allay the apparition of abandoned ascendancy in an aeon of autonomous leveling. For if anybody is blighted to be beneath the bang eventually—as millions of amorous Bolsheviks and Maoists apparent back the State’s bare and austere boring fell on them—then let us boldness appropriate now to be advised by the bulk of force it takes to batter us down.
Jacob Howland’s latest book is Glaucon’s Fate: History, Myth, and Appearance in Plato’s Republic (Paul Dry Books).
