Both the panel (moderated by an American Enterprise Institute fellow, no less) and the keynote represented clear attempts to rehash the same foreign policy hawkishness rejected by huge majorities of Americans on both sides of the aisle, asserted as serving the “national interest.” To call oneself a “realist” or a “nationalist” when promoting regime change in Venezuela, for example, is ludicrous. People like Hazony deserve their own nations, while others, for “prudential” reasons, do not. This adds up to an emetic mouthful, surely, but only when parsing the argument’s discrete premises do its most absurd ingredients come to the fore. In this sense, “national conservatism” is ambiguous—is it national, meaning Anglo-American? It is sustained by competing traditions, some of which are at remarkable odds with one another. Born in the shadow of Stalin, Hitler, or the Holocaust, their fear is understandable.

It is those things, and not empty signifiers (at least in his hands) like “liberalism” or “Marxism” that he has devoted his life to opposing.

With other nations, or with America? This speaks to the ways in which so many self-avowed liberals are already closer to Hazony’s worldview than either he or his critics care to admit.

They aren’t so much made up of cogent thoughts as they are anxieties striving for justification.
