You are making an distinction between The Deep State ala Bannon from The Administrative State ala Pipes but without a clear defining difference. If the left has created and is staffing the administrative state and thus manipulating it to their ends just how different is it from Bannon's Deep State?

Would you include the centralized educational state as part of the left's "font of terrible ideas"?

Daniel Pipes replies:

They are not the same. Deep State is a conspiracy theory. Administrative state is boringly factual.
