My value proposition – to you – and what you need to do about it.

If you have to tell a man what he’s seeing, it’s not there, not for him.

In the long run, what will matter about my work is that I invented egoism. By showing how the self comes to exist and by demonstrating its paramount importance to the uniquely-human life, the idea of self-adoration is mine forever.

In the short run, what matters about the things I say is everything else. Whoever you claim to listen to – Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, The Secret – I’ve got the real goods, and I can show you how to get the actual results you’re looking for – not just wealth but a wealth of spirit, an abundant joy. Whatever you say you want from the world – political liberty, stronger families, a better deal for men, simple human flourishing – every bit of it comes from egoism.

To change the world in the way you want it changed, you must increase the number of egoists.

I know how.

I’m doing it. Slowly. I could do it faster – we could do it faster – if you would pitch in and help.

Anything you can do is great, but here’s something immediate and specific: Put this video:

in front of the right pair of eyes. I don’t know that this appeal will actually appeal to anyone, but it’s the one I can stand to make.

Social media is fine, but it’s unlikely to do the job, at least not by itself. Email promises to be a better bet, something like, “Who ELSE should be seeing this?” Or just email the link to this post.

I hate begging. I’m not interested in money, and the glare of public attention is repellent to me. But I’ve got the Phoenix by the wings and we can fly where we want to go.

Do your self a great big favor and follow through.

    When I first read that, I thought you were joking; I see now that you’re not. Anyway, since you laid no claim to omniscience, I’ve got two facts that you may have overlooked. Gratis.

    1. An implementable business offering genuinely fresh values requires no initial investment beyond whatever physical resources are required…ever.

    2. There is no negative number so large, that a positive number of greater magnitude doesn’t exist.

    I once shared with you my very favorite line, and I’ve yet to write it publicly. So you can have that honor too: “None of this is theory to me.”
