No? I don't really understand where this question came from. Does "one's insistence that X is true proves it is objectively true that one has insisted on X being true" help?
We are talking about two things: (1) your desire that Johnny do what you want and (2) having this desire obligates Johnny to do it. I asked you to support (2) being true (i.e., what's the extra bit that gets 2?). You said "the extra bit is my insistence that he does it."
If all you mean by obligation/authority, is that you insist
X is true, then that is just another way to say (1), that you desire Johnny to do what you want. But you said obligation went beyond this into (2). What is your support for (2)?
