My problem is not with the friend but the crony. The friend is a positive transcendental requirement of philosophy from the beginning, as the Two is an essential component of its existence and founds philosophy’s dialogical nature. The crony is the debased atonal equivalent of the friend, a product of the suture of philosophy to politics that has itself been degraded to the capitalist law of the count (profit) and to the neoliberal law of the association of interests. The crony is in this sense not a subject and conflates the active incorporation in a body of truth with the reactive adhesion to and sharing of theoretical, sociological, collegial, and financial interests, under the condition of democratic materialism.
