This is a thread about the arrival of King Richard, a Protector Alpha who has, through great struggle and self-reflection, come to accept and wield his natural power. CLICK HERE for all posts in this in-depth thread!
One of the great privileges I’ve received over the nearly five years of running this blog has been conversing with great Alphas in a setting separated from sex and humbling service. Over the course of twenty years as a sexual and domestic faggot, I dealt with many Alphas. However, those service relationships – even the meaningful ones – were still intellectually surface-deep. I was a faggot, a “useful thing” to them. I didn’t have a brain, just two convenient holes.
Then this site happened to me. It was inevitable; after all, I am a writer by trade. Through this site I have come to know some of the greatest Alphas of my life. These Men all rightly regarded me as inferior to them, but they sensed enough intelligence in me (since sex wasn’t involved) to trust me with their deepest secrets only other Alphas understand. And I, in turn, endeavored to represent what faghood could be in their lives – a powerful and valuable resource!
And even five years on, I continue to be surprised by the Alphas I meet on this journey over the peaks and through the valleys of the Hierarchy.
Last night I received an extraordinary email (the title of this post comes from the subject line) from a complex Alpha I call King Richard. It shook me to the center of my being. With his permission, I share it with all of you:
sam the faggot,
I will preface this by imparting my upmost respect and admiration for what you are doing on your site, on your podcast, your up and coming business ventures, and most importantly your existence as a human being.
Your very existence is a tiny, but impactful pillar of hope in my mind.
I am an empath by nature, so I do feel very attuned to others on a deeper, primal level. I can very easily hop into the minds and emotions of others and adopt them for myself. With many, it takes a bit of effort to tap into their baser selves. After reading through your beautifully written articles, and listening to the devoted and submissive nature of your voice, it is very clear that you put your authentic self forward. Speaking from an Alpha’s perspective, that is such a breath of much needed fresh air… someone who understands the social and hierarchical aspects of our nature as humans and accepts them wholeheartedly.
It was such a treat to stumble upon your tumblr page before The Great Tumblr Purge. There I was, a college freshman only looking for new porn to get off to, but I never thought I would go down a Hierarchy Is Truth rabbit hole and have such an eye opening experience in the process.
From childhood, I always knew I was destined for greatness. I’d imagine and play out these fantasies of being a hero, being recognized for my efforts, saving the world, being worshipped, and as I grew up (as with most people) I put all of that into the Fantasy Box and put it away.
Due to social conditioning, family trauma, and a genuine care for all human beings, I became afraid of expressing my dominance. I was left denouncing any desire for praise, wanting to fade into the background, and starving myself of attention because I was afraid how it could be perceived by others.
The only way I could express my dominant and hunter instincts was through sex. It was because of this unbalanced relationship with my power that I began to use sex in an unhealty way and with people who most certainly did not deserve me. Through all of that, however, it did teach me just what I needed to do outside of sex to feel complete and balanced. I needed to embrace Alphahood in all aspects of my life.
This is where you came in and truly changed my life; it was when you explained the difference between Protector and Destroyer Aphas. I had been trying to mold myself into this violent, emotionally detached, tyrannical variation of Alphas, but it was against my nature. I wanted to assert my dominance, while also embracing my compassionate, and empathetic self. You helped turn the key in my mind and let loose all of those heroic, grandiose, and godlike projections of myself. I could embrace my power the way I wanted to. I didn’t have to follow any guidelines or rules set it place about what it meant to be an Alpha Male. I was then able to grow and develop in a way that better suited my place in the Hierarchy.
Now, after going through an expansive spiritual awakening, I understand my place. I have a balanced control of my power. I continue to spit, toss, choke, and play with my toys as before, but I also want to protect them, encourage them, and see them succeed. Their worship and devotion is energy being channeled into me like fuel for a car, or air for my lungs; just as my musk and control is for them. It’s a symbiotic relationship. The power most definitely leans toward Our side, but it is important to acknowledge that there is no worship without faggots.
I have you to thank, faggot, for providing a space for us to find and learn from one another. You’ve done an amazing thing with the community that you’ve created and I cannot wait to see what you will do for us next.
Through all of the content and wisdom that you share, you have lifted me up to embrace my voice, harness my power, and continue down the path of a Protector Alpha as nature intended.
—::pats you on the head, kisses your forehead, and whispers “good fucking boy” ::—
I’m always saddened when our greatest Men cast aside this mantle of Alphahood for reasons similar to those expressed here by King Richard. I have known tremendous Alphas beaten into submission by early-life sexual, physical, or emotional abuse. I’ve seen Alphas collapse under the weight of societal expectations, or retreat into the comforts of “normal” life.
But Alphas are not meant to live the lives of regular Men.
King Richard came to finally accept this about himself, fought against the shackles imposed on him by his former life, and transformed into the supreme being Nature intended. He is a powerful example of a Man embracing the truth about himself and the world around him and realizing that it all exists FOR HIM.
Any part I could play in a process that profound and necessary is nothing but sprinkles on the most delicious sundae ever made.
I was deeply moved by King Richard’s soul-baring email to me. He said many complimentary things toward me, a simple faggot, that I will carry in my heart for the rest of my life.
But most of all, his email lifted me and re-energized me in ways I sorely needed right now. In life there are moments of desolation, desperation, and overwhelming frustration. This site and this personal mission of mine to preach the gospel of Hierarchy occasionally takes a toll on my spirit.
Then I receive such a lovely and heartfelt missive, and inspiration returns like a cool spring breeze.
Thank you, King Richard, for your power, wisdom, and kindness. Always.
