Schmitt, Trump, and History

My essay reflecting on Hegel, Carl Schmitt, the I-Not-I distinction as the friend-enemy distinction, American history, “the end of history,” Cold War, and Donald Trump has been published at the online journal Merion West.  The essay is a historico-philosophical examination of the seminal question concerning the “end of history,” dialectical politics, and how to make sense of our current predicament.  Merion West is a journal of the “higher journalism” that mainly publishes academics and high degree holders on topics ranging from philosophy, history, and political science; I recommend it highly over the likes of your standard mainstream media publications.  You can read it here: Can Carl Schmitt Explain How We Got from the Cold War to Donald Trump?
