Watching Donald Trump at Davos, as some the world’s most powerful and wealthy fought to gain the ability to get a selfie with the controversial American president, it would seem wise to discuss one of the least discussed and understood aspects of human culture. It’s an aspect to leadership that obviously Donald Trump has, Clint Eastwood has embodied in several appearances on the silver screen, and many rock stars touch on for a moment in their lives. Often the later thinks that the charisma that emerges from them is due to the drugs they are taking, but it’s not—it’s an intellectual plateau that few people ever reach. I call it the overman complex since there doesn’t seem to be a better name for it thus far. When people have it, people want to be near it. When we say that someone is a good “leader” we are acknowledging this hidden gem—but generally, nobody understands it in a conventional sense. Without question Donald Trump has it, and he knows it. He has written many books trying to teach it to other people, but I think he has only pecked at the surface. Norman Vincent Peale understood it many years ago and attributed it to the power of God, which isn’t all that unrealistic. Great figures throughout history obviously had it, people like King Solomon, Napoleon and Genghis Khan. There are many tycoons throughout business that have it at many levels—but they are a rare breed–they are what drive the world forward. Ayn Rand wrote about it at a very foundational level, but other than that analysis, there really hasn’t bee much scientific study on the matter. But Trump has it, the people at Davos knew it, and the world of the orthodox watched in horror as the American president stepped into their typical socialist celebration of world economic matters and took over easily making the whole event about him.
Did you ever wonder dear reader how greasy teenage rat pack losers practicing music in their garage on a Saturday afternoon could develop in just a few short years into massive celebrities who can walk out on stage in front of thousands of people—half naked in many cases—and sing and seduce all the people in an arena? Anybody who wants to develop themselves into a rock star has to either have it, or get it before they can enchant an audience of thousands into doing whatever they want them too. Yes, there is much to be said about how women will throw themselves at the feet of such people, and why there aren’t more women who have “it” naturally without society trying to bend the rules of engagement to make such an acquisition obtainable. Society has called such people “rebels” and we love them. We love them in our movies, or novels, and our music. We aspire to them in every way except in our institutional reckoning which is in direct opposition to their nature. Institutions do not like “rebels” because they are a dynamic that upsets the static world for which the foundations of life reside. And for the first time in history we have one in the White House and it has truly upset the balance of the world. Trump obviously knew what he was doing by going to Davos and the speeches he gave will change the world for the better.
As Davos was shedding much adoration over Donald Trump it was announced that Stormy Daniels would appear on Jimmy Kimmel in an attempt to embarrass the president of an affair he looks to have had with the porn actress. But much to the surprise of many leftists nobody will care just as it is assumed that the rock stars of ZZ Top and Metallica who are all married have found women throwing themselves at them constantly while on the road. That doesn’t make it right, but it is subconsciously understood that the rules are different for such people. The institution of marriage is transcended by the rock star persona. Melania obviously married a man much older than she was understanding the background of her husband who was a playboy of excess need. It took her a while it appears to get him to settle into marital bliss and once he did, he did not seek the conquest of women to satisfy his voracious appetite to dominate the world around him, he turned to politics and ran for president, and won. Probably a lot more rewarding than worthless affairs with skanky, cheap women and porn stars. A much better way to use the time of a master “rebel.” What Jimmy Kimmel won’t understand until it’s too late is that Stormy Daniels will only make Trump more popular because what people like about the president is that he doesn’t have virtue for institutional barriers artificially created by mankind to regulate our world from the ashes of chaos, he lives by his own rules of valor, and value which are defined by him. It’s an idea that is very Nietzschean which probably crushed the concept in the German philosopher sending him into insanity allowing smaller minds to fall short of his aims and bringing the destruction of the Nazi to Europe essentially destroying everything. Nietzsche was an anti-institutionalist—but the Germans tried to make him into an institutional figure which simply didn’t work. Rebels can be figures of good or evil, but when it’s wondered why so many people followed Hitler it could also be asked why so many nice young girls are taking off their shirts in front of thousands of people and throwing their panties at the stage when Metallica plays in a concert. The admiration for dynamic forces functioning against institutionalism are the same. I think until Trump settled into marriage with Melania he was happy to function at the “rock star” level and he enjoyed that women threw themselves at him regularly. But after a while he needed more, which made him a figure for good in relation to the United States of America, and made Davos for the first time since its inception, a very good thing.
Most people live very quiet lives of desperate yearning for something else. Likely they didn’t have parents who taught them the right things because their parents didn’t understand it either. But by the time most of our population gets to age 40 they regulate themselves to an imprisonment behind walls of their own making. They follow the rules of the institutions around them hoping that by doing so they will be able to feed their families and take care of their responsibilities as human beings more appropriately, so they never shake things up and live quietly behind the fear of ever leaving their self-imposed exile. In a lot of ways, they are like wild animals in the zoo stuck in their exhibits looking out into the mysterious world of the free people who look in on them from another place. They don’t dare leave because the food is good, and their caretakers are nice to them. When an animal does try to escape, they are treated with great force, and are sometimes killed, so everyone knows that making a break from their barriers leads to pain, maybe even death. But they do look with amazement at the free people who watch them and jealousy is a typical emotion. We all see animals at the zoo slumped over sad that they are not free. They are comfortable, but they aren’t free, and this wears its impression on everything that lives—even fish.
Freedom is what everyone desires, and it is what the “rebels” of our society epitomize. It is what makes motorcycle riding alluring, the long-haired boyfriend a desperate yearning for the suburbanite young woman, the girl who makes a living with a stripper pole look appealing against the lives cemented into institutionalism. Although institutionalism isn’t a villain, it’s needed in a stable society—but so is the dynamic intellectualism that challenges static social patterns—which typically advance culture—Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison—Evel Knievel—Donald Trump just to name a few. Our civilization advances only as far as our daredevils challenge the status quo—and that is what is so extraordinary about Trump in Davos. When a person achieves a status of “larger than life” this means they have exceeded the institutional boundaries of static intellectualism and are thus performing a dynamic force against the limits of convention. When such forces are not focused and bored they tend to be destructive to themselves—such as sleeping with porn stars—just because they can. But when they are performing at their optimal efficiency, they can be forces of great good which is where President Trump is in his life presently. It’s also why all those caged people chained to their meager institutionalized existence hate him with more jealousy than resentment. They’d love to be rock stars in their own right, but they don’t have the guts.
What is most fascinating to the participants of Davos is that Trump himself is a product of the economic philosophy of Adam Smith who understood from the vantage point of Scottish life in the mid-1770s that this freedom thing could really advance societies and bring great wealth to nations which then became the title to his famous book. By capturing this yearning for freedom that all people have it allowed America to balloon into a magnificent economy, which is what Trump was selling in Davos. Capitalism allows these dynamic people to be a disruptive force for good in the context of institutional affairs—and advances everything in a positive direction. Of course, such figures are the topic of much consternation, especially from those who have committed their lives to those cell blocks of imprisonment that they have erected around themselves. While those same rebels are viewed with sheer hate by the institutionalists, the improvements however destructive they may appear relative to the orthodox views of our times, benefits greatly by the daredevil antics of the bold and reckless. That is why those who dare to live in such a way will always be loved and sought after. Rebels may appear to be dangerous and even evil, but their necessity is an element that the most basic foundations of the human soul craves with an understanding that their life force is the engine that drive existence—everywhere in the universe. And at this place and time, that power descended on Davos and changed the course of the human race.
