Primacy Versus Efficacy

I really don’t care which form of magic came first. I don’t care which form better fits modern notions of how the universe is constructed. I don’t even care how it fits in with subjective notions of politics.

I am only interested in magic that works best, and works as magic, and endows useful and rare power, and ultimately improves and safeguards the lives and goals of its practitioners.

When these core issues are sidelined for those of prestige and misguided idealism, the result is quixotic and can only persist as cargo culting, fantasy and fraud.

The best argument for a system is often quiet success; it is certainly superior to long winded excuses.
