On This Modern Warrior Archetype Part Six.6.1

6a. Propaganda exists, most would agree, but it couldn’t possibly affect themselves. Only others are snared. One simply happens to think that way. Left in a vacuum, they would still behave, think and believe in the exact same manner. Only others are so mutable. For if one is an individual, one must be unique. The unacknowledged influence is the strongest. Few dare admit it. This Modern Warrior Archetype must be an exception, or else never be anything other than a tool. Influence must be admitted and purged through honestly admitting vulnerability, at least, to oneself. Shame is for the weak minded. Failing to recognize this battle is akin to the belief that a bullet will not rend and tear unprotected flesh. The mere idea is ridiculous. So goes the mind as well.

5o. Collective action is not by nature antithetical towards individualism. Decadence and the decadent, being inherently anti-natural, will most easily make it so. A case in point, due to historically unseen technical advances, the world is interconnected. The values of competing civilizations are, in a sense, pounded at and on opposing population. That which cannot change has it forced. In this arena, left unto itself, the struggle between civilizations will be settled. Victory can only be a product of propaganda. Yet beware backlash. Nobody controls world propaganda.

[3] To a degree.

[4] As if.

5n. Collective action may be vertical or horizontal in structure. However, although height might give one an advantage, that which is stacked too high will naturally reach a state of unstable equilibrium. The fall is hard. Those arrayed on the ground need only stay away from the downward path of collapse to be considered the success. These sort simply don’t promise or expect the world; whatever happens happens. Bear in mind, this assertion says nothing to imply that such low positions are never found on their knees, but they will likely survive. Those left merely standing will thrive. Some will stand taller than others.

5m. Collective action may be a non-point source. As such, it can be blunted but never eliminated entirely. Indeed, just trying is a victory.

5l. Collective action is susceptible to diversion. Hence, a program is required. This assertion should not imply rigidity.

5k. Collective action leads to maximum exposure when applied for Maximum Advantage in all Things. In this scheme, the act occurs but once. By the act of immolation, attention is grabbed hard. Hence, means and ends beyond the Technical Morality must be employed for sustainability. The goal is not just to survive, but thrive.

5j. Collective action has no innate control; so why push it? Things fall apart on their own.

5i. Collective action is better witnessed through magnification. Practice is superior while small. An avalanche may be triggered by a single breath.

5h. Collective action can be individual; it’s also harder to stop.
