This Is How the World Ends, Part Four: Angelo Codevilla and the Neoconservative Fantasy

The first foundational assumption of Jack’s is the existence of a superior/inferior class structure. If this structure does not actually exist, then Jack has misdiagnosed both the problem and how his so-called Beast manifests itself in actuality. By his own admission in Footnote 9 of his paper, Jack’s belief in this class structure comes directly from a man named Angelo Codevilla. The neoconservative perspective advanced by Codevilla is very clear: we need to embrace American exceptionalism and superiority, and we need to imperialistically advance the values of the past — namely, White Protestant values.
