Thank you for the kind words. I do believe that I’m on to something. This essay is turning into a book, and will cover much more. It is curious to me that so many authors dance around the role that the Will to Power plays in animating history’s worst tyrants and mass murderers.
It is also vital that we recognize and destroy those who seek that same adulterine power. The human race can’t stand much more of this and still call itself human.
A most interesting read that you sent me. I’m almost done with it. Thanks.
Wow, if you can keep up that level of pith throughout a hard cover you’ll gain fame as one of the greatest authors of conservative social commentary. It is sort of a psychoanalysis of political motivation (take that as a compliment, even if psychoanalysis in the clinical sense is tarnished). Another FReeper suggested submitting this essay to a periodical? Have you done that? Seems like a appropriate stepping stone. Glad to have you in the Great Inland Northwest (I think that’s where you are).
