The core of their version of conservative belief is that the absolute truth does exist even if we are not capable of knowing that we know but we can recognize it and any version of relativism must always be wrong because they know their inherent truth must be true because they feel it to be true. There is a second principle they have and it is the atomization of the world.
The individual makes the world, or there is no such thing as a society because it is made up of mere individuals the authors would believe. Joseph Campbell did everything he could to make us embrace and be prideful of our own myths thus separating us from each other by how we think about ourselves thus making anybody who is just a little bit different not part of the in group and more vulnerable to exclusion.
At the core of the Enlightenment is tolerance of others because they realized our similarity that all humans have just for being human is less than the differences we have within our own pride group. The old myths are still just myths and just because they are mine does not make them superior to yours. Pride in our majority identity is the tool that Donald Trump and Jordan Peterson use to divide us and this book wants to do away with the principles of the Enlightenment and bring back prideful myths.
Bloom clearly took this book as his road map and modernized it when he wrote his awful book. Essentially that means one old fart [Bloom] was influenced by another old fart [Adorno and Frankfurt School] leading to the pseudo-intellectual old fart [Brooks] thinking the best intellectual since Homer and his Odyssey is Peterson. One chapter I really did enjoy in this book for its anachronism and tone deafness even for its own time period was how the movies of that time period are such a disgrace.
The one thing I am an expert on is old movies and I know every allusion they made in their book and know how absurd the writers where actually unintentionally being.
They liked Garbo and thought Orson Welles was so overrated! I have nothing against Garbo, but Welles is a master at his craft. Also, within this book they have a lot of Freudian type psychology floating around.
