This victory is not of one candidate or party over another in this race or that, but rather a resounding ideological defeat of one of the most illiberal and menacing forces we face at the moment: technocracy.
The best way to think about tradition is to view it like capital accumulation. Knowledge is accumulated through countless centuries of trial and error. The state seeks to destroy historical consciousness and old ways of life to secure power.
The state currently enjoys a vastly unbalanced share of the power within a society, such an arrangement is not in any way preordained, and the assumption that it must be betrays a narrowness of vision and a lack of historical knowledge.
