The Leader vs. the Media Personality

Tue May 28, 2019 5:45 pm

People today are all terrible at distinguishing a leader from a media personality. This has led to numerous errors, but an obvious one was Cville in 2017 where a lack of leadership and coordination led to disaster for almost everyone involved. People looked to media personalities for leadership, and the personalities looked out for their own asses.

We can enjoy a personality. We can respect or admire a personality. We can watch a personality, and even be greatly interested in a personality. But no one should ever look to a personality for leadership and direction.

Case in point: Roosh was always a media personality. This doesn't mean he was inherently insincere, but one should always treat a media personality like a utility. Take what rhetoric, arguments, and ideas they have to offer. Buy their books. Read their blogs. Donate or buy their merch if you feel like it so they can keep getting the message out. Nothing wrong with any of this. But don't ever make the mistake of becoming personally loyal. And for crying out loud, don't ever become dependent on a media personality for your safety and security.

Can you elaborate on the differences between a leader and a media personality? Is it a difference in temperament, or style, or strengths?

It’s not complicated. The leader gets stuff done. The media personality just talks.

And no, doing a tour is not getting stuff done, because the purpose of the tour is to talk. If the purpose was to burn down mosques, then we’d be talking.

Trump is a weird mix between the 2, not really good at either.

Trump is a media personality. Trump's subordinates don't turn out well. He doesn't look out for them. He pumps and dumps them. Who would even want to work for Trump right now?

The leader understands that if one of his guys is fucked with and nothing happens it makes him and his entire organization look bad. Of course, a good follower also understands that if he represents a larger movement or team and is publicly fucked with because of it and he does nothing, he's just made them all look like faggots.
