The people who sought after
the Cold War, and again after September 2001, to resurrect the ideas of Carl Schmitt had a point. The problem throughout the
world, specially in the most advanced countries of the world, is now worse than a collective narcissism; it is an overpowering
self-absorption in which the me-generation, enjoying its last hurrah in power, has substituted ‘with us or against us’
for ‘with me or against me’, everywhere, all the time. Barring a major intervention of some
kind, such a pathology will only bring about a collective suicide.
