What comes to mind when you think about Arnold Schwarzenegger? 80s action hero? Real estate mogul? Governor of California? Guy who Cs himself in the gym?
Arnold is not properly represented by any of these labels, because he is all of them. He’s a true life dominator who conquers whatever monstrous challenge he decides to pursue. He lives a flavorful life and does not fuck around with mediocrity. If he’s going to lift weights he’s going to win the most prestigious honor in the sport of bodybuilding, seven times. If he’s going to be an action movie hero, he’s going to create a multi-billion dollar worldwide hollywood franchise. If he’s going to enter the political arena, he’s going to be the head of the biggest, most politically and economically fucked up state in the union. And if he were born in America I guarantee you we would call him “Mr. President” at some point.
