What he finds is the old one-two punch of history: the jab of tragedy, the right hook of farce. The election of Donald Trump only confirms the bankruptcy of a liberal order on its last legs. First as Tragedy, Then as Farce is a call for the left to reinvent itself in the light of our desperate historical situation. Advocated here are—among other things—universal conscription, the full acknowledgment of envy and resentment as a fundamental challenge to any communist society, and the acceptance that the division between work and leisure cannot be overcome. To create a new world, we must first change the way we envision the world. Philosophical materialism in all its forms — from scientific naturalism to Deleuzian New Materialism — has failed to meet the key theoretical and political challenges of the modern world.
