It’s funny how political pundits, as they get closer to political power, begin to realize that Action has priority over reflection, but in being “reflectives” they can, at best, “put in a word or two” to the Men of Action in hopes that it might guide them.
The “court philosopher” is supposed to write apologia for the man of action— by creating a theory which explains his actions, though this theory is only a product of his action.
This is the Hegelian/Kojevian problem of political theory— reflective speculation must either *literally* serve men of action (& thus lose its detachment), or it must become sovereign (the philosopher-king).
In this sense, all interested political theory (not purely disinterested speculation) serves as an *audition* for power.

My Q arc was performance art of the highest level— I was trying to gather a bunch of Qanon followers, which I did, & it was great research— it’s how I realized the Falun Gong connection & then the Watkins Phillipines connection, then Chinese geopol angle
I thought was an NSA opp but then I realized that it was more likely an actual military intelligence op— & now we have documents proving this with Watkins & co interacting with Fort Bragg psyops coordinators. So it *wasnt* the CIA— technically— but “CIA” is shorthand for “intel”
CIA less interested in military engagement with China than Military Intelligence— slightly different incentive structures amongst the intel agencies— complicated stuff— but yes— Qanon was often what it said it was— a military psyop run out of the phillipines to get around nat law

The most telling thing of this all is that our poet laureate went to an elite private school followed by harvard & describes herself, slyly, as “being raised by a single mother”— to imply some sort of impoverished upbringing— her “poetic bonafides” supplied by a Sociology degree Image
She attended New Roads K-12– that’s a full college tuition for most people.
Did I not just call this “hamilton-ass rappistry”? I did— because I can intuit this shit. Image

There’s no reason why a rapper shouldn’t be poet laureate— this sort of breathy slam poet style is just “pastor rapping”— MFA rap
Hmm yes the people’s poet— a harvard sociology student— Image
Lil Wayne would have come up with better slant rhymes & puns than this— this was macklemore tier— hamilton-ass rappistry.

Americans will never understand geopolitics without realizing that we have inherited all the traditional positions of the british empire— which is to say— the British East Indies Corporation.
We’re literally advocating for a Pan-Moslem state in Xinjiang to be run by soldiers of fortune in our pay— to offset Russian & Chinese interests in Eurasia— nothing has changed. Xi is a Han Emperor.
