Corey Robi reviews some books on Hannah Arendt

"That careerism may be as lethal as idealism, that ambition is an adjunct of barbarism, that some of the worst crimes are the result of ordinary vices rather than extraordinary ideas: these are the implications of Eichmann in Jerusalem that neo-cons and neoliberals alike find too troubling to acknowledge." from Dragon-Slayers by Corey Robin. Somewhat convoluted and difficult essay for me but I came to the above conclusion long ago by myself.
