Branderback teaches his followers to live their lives to their fullest extent. There should be no limit to what one may desire, and if you can obtain it, then there is no reason why you should not have it. He also teaches that although temporary allegiances with like-minded groups are necessary, you should always depend on yourself. Never be caught unaware and have a backup plan to the backup plan. If all else fails, blame someone else. Why should you take the blame for something that was meant to happen?
