Aesthetics are objective. That's why all high powers in high cultures are deeply aesthetic. A purely aesthetic narrative then is the highest percievable peak for politics today and since it has existed.

Artists are, in a sense, people who give up. The good ones, anyway. The correlation is clear.

A scary task, no doubt. Many a genocide has been carried out for this fear. This ambious lack of ability to take it or make it. It is not necessarily admirable, just an example of evolutionary sense. Value, if you will.

Yes the subjectivity of valuation reveals a deeper objectivity, this is how we connect into reality. More reality = more political power, but it also equals more power to construct subjectivities, "non objectivity", like opinion, sentiment, etc. It is possible that all human "opinion, sentiment", everything "subjective" is simply something created as a side-effect of true objectivities as politics power in the high culture of a civilization.

But it requires something... unknown, to link self-valuings in this way, under the surfaces of shared value-worlds. We can simply call it logical necessity, but I imagine it is far more "real" than that too. Think archetypes, global consciousness project, ...

"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham
