How can we imagine such a thing?

Has it existed?

Sublime politics are approached most closely in submarine war, the heart of the cold war.

In a military sense, the ocean is vaster than outer space.

Above ground, where crews and brotherhoods are not absolute, with political parties, political bureaucracies, statecraft in the sense of shaping the way humans behave, politics must be radically vulgar - at least in the sense in which it can be accepted. The sublime is far more offensive than the vulgar.
