Why do we fight for what we fight for?

Let's assume for a second that what we fight for is logical in that it represents the best path forward for humanity - nihilism, conservatism, etc. Why do we fight for it? If we have it for ourselves that is one thing, but why do we wish to share it with others? Brotherhood? On what basis should we concern ourselves with others?

Brotherhood indeed, for many of us (non-aspergers) an accomplishment means little if you can't share it with others.

Aside from this, even if we were selfish assholes, it is impossible to achieve what we desire without a large group of people. The bigger the better.

1. Beauty = right = once we've seen it as an option, it makes no sense to turn it down

2. It's fun

3. We find meaning in the concepts we discuss outside of our immediate futures

4. It helps us pick up spergs in ambisexual screamo bars

This synthesis is what does it for me. To strive for what could be, while in a nietzschean way (Kaczynski applies here aswell) enjoying life to the fullest. The power process provides us with a goal aswell as a sense of purpose.

Forces of natures must always and inevitably express themselves in growth, power, influence.  It's not even a choice, really.  It's an impulse.
