When Carl Schmitt emphatically rejects liberalism’s administrative anemia and advances power as the irreducible stake in social antagonism, he gives the minimal condition of the political as the bedrock distinction between friend and enemy. When, in recognition of the passing of the res publica and of the disempowering tendencies of the modern liberal nation-state, Hannah Arendt tentatively holds out the promise of an eruptive politics of “founding,” it is friendship that is charged with the paramount task of sustaining the common world of “inter-being” continually threatened with obliteration by “the social” on one side and totalitarianism on the other.
Liberalism as a strategy for organizing political life can be regarded as a kind of mechanism for manufacturing the private, insofar as the teleology of liberalism is the surpassing of politics. Silver’s endorsement of the earliest formulation of the public/ private distinction by liberal philosophers lends itself to just such a reading. It is no accident that friendship is the key trope for these thinkers in their attempt to imagine the good life secured by the liberal construction of citizenship.
As a rhetorical project aimed at securing contractual relations by appearing to oppose them, it is inherently contradictory, and this contradiction is inevitably what friendship films both occlude and mark. While modeling the liberal ideal of privacy with its superior forms of subjectivity and modes of sociality, the figure of friendship as a response to political duress simultaneously underscores the artifice of this model, rendering every narrative victory provisional and hollow and necessitating the propagation of more narratives.
