This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
It is conducive to the will, and seeks the fulfillment of the individual as an individual. Any act performed by the will in accord with the ego, is an act of egotism. The ego seeks to procure the epitomy of self by way of definition, and the genuine. It is the genuine which draws the ego to willful action. Self-interest is termed "egotistical." Egotism is a self-interest; however, selfinterest is not always an egotism. If the willful act does not further the personal definition of the individual and who they are, then the act is not intrinsically an egotism. Those who act upon the basis of antihomosexual ends, are seeking a purely egotistical agenda. The antihomosexual seeks the defintion of the self in contrast to the lifestyles and culture of the homosexual. Their vision of the genuine lies in an ideal outside of the homosexual domain, and makes the self seem all that the homosexual is not. When we seek the genuine, we stand to lose the necessary and the moral. The self does not know morality, nor neccessity: it is knowledge and action. If the individual is aligned to persue an antihomosexual agenda, their actions do not intrinsically add to or detract from their wellbeing; yet such actions may be found harmful. But it is not merely a contrasting that the antihomosexual will works upon the world; it is a vendetta to eradicate what stands in opposition to the essence of the individual (i.e. self). Thus once the distinction is made, dominance must be given such that the ego is absolute and unquestioned. Should the ego waver, the self is lost. To those who would sacrifice all ends for the ends of the individual, we must concede that the individual is not the sum of this world, nor is its value without the self. Therefore we may seek to grant it existence -- being -- but no more: we must not deify the ego. Instead, we must seek the necessary and the moral: the id and super-ego. We
2 Wheat must better understand our conflicts and our reasons for action, and look beyond the pale of our own personal perfection, into the possibilities of the perfection of our world. We are not worlds in ourselves, but part of those we touch. When we deny the world that the homosexual has touched, outcast him as an alien, and strip him of his humanity, this antihomosexual act has not furthered the self. Perhaps the silhouette has grown more defined around the edges, but the substance is still shadow. The antihomosexual does not have justified compulsions. He has only his personal traits which he desires to magnify and project as ideals for his society. Homosexuals are the minority, and thus subject to the criticism of the antihomosexual's perceived ideals. When confronted by the homosexual, the antihomosexual is stricken with the unknown: the unfamiliar. That which is different threatens the ideal, and must be destructive to the self. For the self seeks only what is like the self, the self becomes universal perfection, and the self denies the virtue and morality of what is unlike the self. A self under ego is destructive, but a self under will is creative. For when the will can be exercised free from the ego, it is a true will. Thus good men act from their will and yield creative acts, and do not perfect the self out of self alone.
