Hans Jonas on Politics - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 610
Politics/Jonas: to enforce his ethical imperatives (see Ethics/Jonas, Ecological Imperative/Jonas) Jonas relies entirely on politics and its coercive means. Education alone is not able to achieve the ethical reconsideration of people. According to Jonas, "a maximum of politically imposed social discipline" (1), in the sense of a "policy of renunciation" (2), a "subordination of the present advantage to the long-term imperative of the future" (3), is necessary.
Solution/Jonas: Forms of political "autocracy" (4), like socialism, seem more suitable to him than the liberal democracies of the West organized in a market economy. Context: See Ethics/Jonas, However, Jonas has critical reservations VsMarxism: See Marxism/Jonas.
