We all use the tools available to us to attempt express our will to power (demand for agency).
I have built a bunch of companies now, and am building a body of work. I’ve studied every field that I can study without getting my hands too dirty. I amuse myself teaching men of various agencies, as a way testing my work and improving my ability to communicate novel ideas.
My ‘availability’ for ‘the students’ is simply necessary for my work (and somewhat entertaining since I have either been in a foreign country with limited circle, or here in the states with limited circle since I started working publicly) and my work relationships have always provided my social circle.
I have had a thousand or more conversations with men and women from all walks of life who think using different words to change meaning is the same thing as acting to cause change in reality. And every individual does the same thing – try to make a story where the world fits his or her needs rather than adapting to the world such that one can seize the opportunity in it.
So, we are not above a story we tell ourselves (yourselves) because selling a story is the only offering we have to attract attention with. If you have no capital, no organization, no income stream, no power relationships, are not politically engaged or engageable, not strong, athletic, or martial, then you have nothing to sell but stories.
And if that is the case, then you probably are not willing or able to work hard enough to acquire any of the above.
You can spend your prime years attempting to tell stories, and sell them. You do what you can with the rather good mind you (y’all) have. And with enough practice over six or ten years, you will either abandon it or find some use for it. But you could be working in craft, commerce, entertainment, education, or politics instead – and while you have probably lost seven to ten years of life to maleducation, you can spend another six to ten selling a story until your consequent failure is sufficient evidence for people your age to dismiss you.
I’m a scientist, and those of you who sell stories, well, you need, want to be, and admire the priesthood- or rather the secular version of it – just as do all members of the academy. If you are on the libertarian or right end of the spectrum, you are just on the outside of the mainstream, and cannot employ it in the academy and are not knowledgeable enough yet to employ it in the media (might happen). .
I understand this. But I have an approach to the problem of the present era, and that is to move the world forward, IN THE TERMS OF THOSE WHO HAVE AND MAINTAIN, POWER. Those people with whom I have understanding and experience.
So, you know, if you want to tell yourself stories or create an english speaking version of the european new right, then I think you will need to work pretty hard at it.
I will just move forward with ‘if it isn’t true, then how to I satisfy market demand truthfully’. And provide a solution that is in the material economic and kinship interests of enough of my people to cause them to demand that implementation by force.
