Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fascinating comment!  I am familiar with Arendt primarily  due to The Origins of Totalitarianism, which was one of the favorite works of two of my most conservative professors in grad school.  I only read excerpts they provided.  They, of course, would not have been likely to highlight the connections to Hobson, by whom I was greatly impressed and who I consider to be greatly, but sadly, underrated.  Is the thesis you describe set forth in Origins?
