We don’t ask cooperation of beasts
We don’t ask cooperation of domesticated animals.
We don’t ask cooperation of pets
We don’t ask cooperation of children
We don’t ask cooperation of the incapable
We don’t ask cooperation of those without agency.
We ask little cooperation of those who request subsidy.
We ask more cooperation of those who request freedom.
We ask even more cooperation from those who request liberty.
We desire the full cooperation of those who possess agency.
We require and cannot avoid the full cooperation of those who desire sovereignty.
The few rule the many, to transcend mankind.
We can rule and transcend, or be ruled and fail to.
We can possess sovereignty in fact, or something less by permission.
But to possess sovereignty requires we possess agency.
And to possess agency we must possess the ability, the knowledge, the fitness and will…
… the will to fight, kill, slaughter, and destroy.
There is no transcendence, no sovereignty, no agency for the weak, the cowardly, the timid, or the dim. And no liberty, nor freedom, nor subsidy for others if we fail.
