moldbug can't be described as "having ideas" so much as he does moving through them slowly and arduously, never arriving at a conclusion, only producing the permanent experience of moving towards a conclusion without ever arriving, the chain of reasoning always shriveling before finding a path
I think curtis has one idea, personally, and he recycles it endlessly - that power is an end in itself, and it is taken and held by force

Yeah, and he says the left refuse to, or simply don't dare. That they think they can just dispose of hierarchies and don't need to deal with it.

hes not a bad writer (trigger warning) but he misunderstands something fundamental about humans. unfortunately this misunderstanding is his central topic.

This is the kind of comment Moldbug gets under his posts.
Your Catholic Conservative is the manifestation of the GOP, and your description of their inability to claim power is certainly right. However, power requires energy as you say, and the Right's energy lies elsewhere.

The Trump administration has seen the birth of a young, hot-blooded right wing movement with utter contempt for the cathedral and utter certainty their place is at the top. Where most want demaaaauucwasy they want caesar. The movement is young and unfocused, for sure, but four more years of optimism and space under Trump would surely see it gestate into maturity.

Where the left's only product is smugness, theirs are aesthetics, discipline, growth, determination, and most importantly vigour. Which of those wins, do you think?

You yourself mention posting physique - so I think you know who I mean.

You and BAP agree on at least one point - that this is now purely a battle of will. He who does not fight for power will not win power, for he will not take the necessary means to sieze it. This is why they - and I - will support Trump with all our energy until the end. Because conceding must not be in our playbook.

This does not mean Biden's victory would be final, far from it. Inevitably, the truth will out, and Chad will have dominion over Jim. What I am saying is they grow as big and strong under Trump's leadership - real or imagined - as they do on raw eggs and grass-fed beef.

Ave Imperator!
