Both bodies united only what they had ﬁrst divided. And what did they divide the human race into? Replicas of the original self-determining nation, America.
A basic premise of the political theory of Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss – that politics is about dealing with enemies – simply does not apply to it. Equally, no other political unit can share the world with America and still deserve the name of nation, since, however well armed it may be, it continues to exist only 40 Nations and Empires because America tolerates it. You cannot claim to be a self-determining people if America is the sleeping voter in any ballot you may hold on your collective future, and if the outcome is always subject to an American veto.
If the present political world order of territorial nation-states linked by international agreements is, as I believe, an experiment dating roughly from 1945, it is by no means obvious that the experiment has yet succeeded, or will ever do so. The theory on which the experiment is based is as questionable as its historical presuppositions. For it is a part of the deﬁnition of a nation as a political unit – in which sense the term is synonymous with ‘nation-state’ – that it asserts the right, and maintains the means, to defend itself and its territory against other nations should they become its enemies.
