Romance is a heavenly plaything.
Governing is a game of war.
Status and power are the core tenants of social darwinism in the modern age.
My one main disagreement with orthodox Marxism, and one thing I greatly admire about the Soviet Union, is the inclusion of the intelligensia. The intelligensia is not higher than the workers, yet it is somehow separate: the workers focus on their work, living life, in that reality. The scientists, mathematicians, polymaths, etc., focus on larger problems and questions, investigating the true meanings of life and existence. Both focus on a separate realm of reality. Whereas the workers are more in touch with the natural form of humans, the intelligensia embody an understanding of the natural form. Together, they push the whole of society onto an aim for greater similarity with pure nature, the greatest state of being in existence, the purity of infinite fitness and impartial indifference.
This separation from the harshness of nature in order to better understand the harshness of nature is in no way a faith of similarity to the Abrahamic religions of weakness, just as the strengthening of the state in order to establish a global nation which can then dissolve its state in order to become more fluid is different to any number of nations which increase their federal powers gradually to in turn eventually form a singular global union.
