Angelo Codevilla, R.I.P.: Invitation to a Memorial Mass and Reception

Apparently, the memorial for Angelo Codevilla is going to be a public event. I had some important disagreements with Codevilla. Like most conservative critics of the US ruling class, his critique was largely limited to the left-wing of the ruling class (as opposed to figures like Chomsky and Hedges, who are generally only concerned with the right-wing of the ruling class). But within his own range of specialization, he was often very insightful.

Angelo Codevilla, Whose Writings Anticipated Trumpism, Dies at 78
A hawkish conservative, he believed that America was hamstrung at home and abroad by a progressive ruling class.

Angelo Codevilla: The Loss of a Philosopher and Conservative Legend
Sep 30, 2021 — Angelo Codevilla, age 78, was killed in a tragic car accident. His passing comes at a time when the United States can hardly afford to lose an eloquent voice of reason and deep learning. As irrationality and wokism rage across the land, listening to Codevilla speak was music for the soul.
Angelo Codevilla, R.I.P.
Angelo Codevilla, the historian of spycraft and powerful analyst of American political and social trends, has died. It is difficult for many commentators to see beyond the current news cycle. But Codevilla, because he could see America as it is presently, could also see into the future. Here in National Review in 2009, he predicted a populist-type figure, one that could unite the “Country Party,” could eventually come to lead the Republicans.
RIP, Angelo Codevilla, the conservative thinker who took on the ruling class

One rare exception to the general cluelessness of the right-wing intelligentsia was Angelo Codevilla, a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute and former professor of international relations at Boston University who died this week in a car accident, aged 78.
Why We Will Miss Angelo Codevilla
The political philosopher Angelo Codevilla was taken from us on September 21, at a time when America has particular need of him. No one I have known combined such ferocious contempt for hypocrisy and incompetence with such generosity of spirit. He was, as the Bible qualified the patriarch Jacob, tam: open and unpretentious, naïve in his devotion to principle and his openness to political friendship, an unflinching ally in the political equivalent of a bar fight, a mentor of unfailing generosity to young scholars and activists. A distinguished translator of Machiavelli, Codevilla was the least Machiavellian person I ever encountered at a high level of policy.
