PRODUCING LEADERS NOT LEADING
by Tim Kay
To those who don’t get it: Curt’s a leader-producer, not a leader. Which is more crucial but just not the same role. Leaders are those best able to make use of the intellectual weaponry he develops in their respective niches. They emerge from the slush pile that is the audience. It seems to me that there is a core of Propertarian judges (those capable of continuing Curt’s work at his level) who are currently in development, and then a core of leaders (those who can propagate and mobilise), with some overlap between the two.
It would be incorrect to ask Curt to be the leader because …
THE RIGHT ISN”T A MONOLITH. … Leaders must be discovered in order to fit the demands of the various groups (and their grammars).
An important consideration is the long-term viability of the work. As such making it about Curt would defeat the purpose; seeding a sufficiently distributed group of leaders is essential.
To those who are looking for a leader, I would suggest nominating your existing de facto leader to get on board with Propertarianism and so fill one of the niches, or, to keep an eye on the talent produced by the project.
Let me repeat this because it’s the core of it:
—“Leaders must be discovered in order to fit the demands of the various groups (and their grammars). “—
I produce political weaponry. One of the weapons is leaders. I am not nor do I want to be a leader. We must act as one, not be led by one.
Honestly I’m absolutely floored someone made this argument (grammars) instead of me because it is evidence of how far we have come in PRODUCING thought leadership.
