An animal has no agency, only impulse; can enter no contracts, only seize conveniences; can resolve no disputes truthfully, only imagine excuses. It cannot be reasoned with, only bribed or punished. But with bribes and punishments it can be trained. And if training fails, abandoned to the wild, enslaved, imprisoned, or killed.

We train the animal with property in toto, manners, ethics, morals, and law. We use peers, parents, teachers, sheriffs, police, judges, juries, soldiers, generals and kings.

The animal can be trained from beast to slave, to serf, to dependent, to freeman, to civilian, to soldier, to aristocracy: human.

The training requires sentience, awareness, consciousness, reason, knowledge, and agency.

But each degree of training demands more of the animal, and many – most – cannot complete it, and transcend the animal.

As such the world is full of a few humans and many domesticated animals of varying degree, and many, many beasts.

Thankfully, like many domesticatable animals, these animals, once domesticated, can often be put to good use.

And as such, the beast man, like all other domesticatable beasts, can be domesticated for profit.

The domestication of man – that occupation we call rule – is the most profitable occupation of all, except for one:

The success in breeding, and training humans.

Because while animals are a commodity, producing the rare human is the most profitable industry of all.

And if it fails, hunting the beast man that remain, is the greatest joy of all.
