To static wishful thinkers, intent
-- the stuff that wishes are made of --
is the most important characteristic of people.
Static thinkers identify being good and having good intents
(thus with having the same intents as themselves).
They identify being bad and having dark intents.
Their thinking is thus completely political in the Carl Schmitt sense.
my friends, right or wrong
-- which by lack of proper feedback means mostly wrong.
To dynamic rational choosers, discipline -- the stuff that rules of behaviour are made of -- is the most important characteristic of people. Dynamic thinkers identify being good with having good behaviour (with a great diversity of such behaviour). They identify being bad with acting in detrimental ways. Their thinking is thus completely economical, in the Frank Chodorov sense. Their morality starts with universal justice -- constraining friends as well as foes, or more so even. Feedback toward improvement is guaranteed by the use of reason and the respect for the arguers.
