What wins in this world. Simple.
1. Internal locus of control.
2. Individual sovereignty (I own me).
3. High Agency.
4. Intolerance.
5. A refusal to seek validation.
6. A refusal to seek approval.
7. The ability to think out to 2nd and 3rd order effects.
8. The ability to understand Requisite Variety — the one with the most options wins. As soon as you are limited by your own values, beliefs and morals against an enemy that wields dual-moralism or is polymorphic and peddles lies, you lose. The church offers confessions for a reason, win and then confess. There is no value in losing or dying with “honor”.
9. The understanding that you were dead the day you were born. And you have a duty and role to play.
10. Do it.
