One of the huge favors Curt Doolittle has done the grassroots Right is giving us scientific language to express and explain our strategy. (Watch my video "Welcome to the Winning Right" for an example of this regarding the LGBT issue.)
This is something we didn't have before. So we *were* inept at expressing our strategy. The only language we knew how to use was moral and instinctive language - "That's bad because (supernatural/religion reason)" or "That's bad cuz it's icky (digust response)."
This type of language makes sense (is instinctively understood) by those with a right-wing instinct, but for those whose instincts are different, or who are not religious, it falls short. It is also inadequate for writing law. If you try to base your law on supernatural claims, you are in the position of having to shove supernatural beliefs down the throats of millions of people; and it is difficult to build a solid reasoning for rule of law based on “that seems yucky and it disgusts me”. The scientific language Propertarianism teaches us to use gives us, for the first time, the ability to put our instinctive right-wing, civilization-building, civilizational-asset-preserving strategy into law in a specific and thorough enough manner to withstand the onslaught of our enemies.
Most of the grassroots Right is still inept at expressing our strategy in empirical, scientific terms, because Propertarianism is only a few months into its "expansion" phase.
So Curt's not wrong when he says most grassroots rightwingers are verbally inept compared to the left. At the same time, the left's verbal expression of their instinctive strategy doesn't have to go beyond GSRRM and cherrypicking - in fact, it can't. In contrast, our expression of our instinctive strategy can and does need to go beyond GSRRM and cherrypicking, and this is much harder both in terms of work/time investment and emotional impact on audience (limits on consumption & parasitism, and reality that most humans are very close to useless in a modern economy, is a tough sell).
