One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Holding Back

You are holding no one back. No one is holding you back. None of the people you know conspire to hold back others. The successful focus on useful action, not injuring people, constructing fetters, or explaining their failures with clever excuses. Upon consideration, you realize that no one sensible would waste time plotting against people they don't know.

There is no shame to be excluded from the top 0.0001% of ball throwers paid to entertain bored droids. No one held you back or falsely selected others over you. You just aren't good enough at throwing a ball around -- perhaps you are decent at something else.

There is no systemic oppression. To the extent there is any system, all popularly promoted ideals are propaganda on the side of the least capable with the lowest demonstrated potential, consuming nearly all resources on a crazy underdog fantasy while the best who have always been society's greatest benefactors are abandoned.

Wishful thinking has endured a century without composers, art, or an intellectual class. Our greats now only come from independent aristocratic strains and exceptional hermit spirits who live outside of society, cultivating themselves because nothing worthwhile was available within.
