Time magazine use to more or less affirm middle-class values, now as it nears its death it promotes feminism and minority grievances. In a recent interview black playwright Lynn Nottage triumphantly declared that: "Trump is the outward manifestation of white male panic."
At least someone is worried about the fall of white men and the fall of Western civilization. Is the white man supposed to welcome his own death? That would be psychological and biological suicide.
How about being a little grateful to white men who junked meritocracy to advance minorities, when meritocracy was the thing that made the West fair-minded and great against old world advancement through nepotism and cronyism? Affirmative Action has spent billions of mostly white dollars promoting social programs that advance blacks and minorities (but not Asians) over vastly more qualified candidates, and billions more on welfare programs. Is reverse racism better than old racism?
The answer to that question may shock both the white cuckolds of cultural Marxism and the radical minorities. Being kin-centered and ethnocentric is a basic part of real human nature and has been since humans became humans. Bonding with group-selection preferences was genetically inherited because it allowed us to live and survive successfully in a very dangerous world, and those traits are still very much with all of us today.
Will the day ever come when humans stop blocking and denying what they actually are? Perhaps then we can use the ethnocentrism that is tearing us apart to put us back together again, this time in ethnostates, for all groups. If you want to march for social and racial justice march for that. The U. S. constitutional separation of powers and states could be adapted to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.

In thinking about the co-evolution of nature and nurture, "we see what we believe" seems to relate more to nurture, and "we believe what we see" seems to relate more to nature.
Both inherited human intelligence and nurtured learning have been mistaught and misused in the West by the ideals of modern liberalism, or cultural Marxism, which virtually denies inherited intelligence and teaches people that we are all the same genetically which they think is good and all our differences are do to what we learn from our environment. On the other extreme are the old style racists who virtually discount nurturing and the environment and believe that all of human nature is inherited.
The inherited material machinery of the eyes and brain are not the same in individuals or species. The machinery of a frog brain is genetically less sophisticated, or differently specialized, than a human brain and they will both see and learn differently. These differences were inherited because they helped the human and the frog successfully survive and reproduce in different environments, and that machinery remains mainly the same today.
An inherited sophisticated brain won't be very useful if the brain is exposed to little but distorted learning. Even a genetically sophisticated brain won't help us much if it is brainwashed or propagandized with mistaken nurturing and learning such as the cultural Marxism we are now taught in the West.
We have gotten far away from knowing about the real human nature we inherited from our ancestors and we need to go back to a healthy expression of who we are. In every human culture ever studied human nature included, among other things, kin-selection preferences, incest taboos, marriage, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, group-selection and even ethnocentrism. If a culture proposes to not include these things the culture does not last long and it will always return to these things. These traits also happen to be at the core of classical conservatism, whereas many of these things are missing in communism, modern liberalism, and post-modernism.
Real life strongly suggests that real human nature leads naturally to the cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and even ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. Given who we are this appears to be the best way we can optimize the gene expression we all inherited from our human ancestors, and that is what we should be teaching in the West. The East could be teaching it too. This would bring a long-lasting natural order to our increasing modern chaos.

"This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper:" T S Eliot
Not with a bang but a whimper:" T S Eliot
Why can't modern liberals think outside the box of political correctness and cultural Marxism? I think it's more a lack of courage than the fact that they were taught that nonsense from grade school through grad school. The lack of courage seems also to be based in a lack of physical courage, caused by a sedentary life full of technical gadgets and passive viewing of a pervasive liberal media.
Many liberals were intimidated or saw others humiliated by more knowledgeable teachers and professors for thinking outside the liberal box. Real truths about human nature are not even taught in our schools, for example, the synthesizing science of sociobiology is left out of the humanities, or is belittled when it is rarely mentioned.
Sports can teach courage but even our sports have been increasingly invaded by passive liberals who seem to prefer losers to winners, at least on the surface. And of course the military is the traditional way to teach courageous behavior.
Being poor can teach courage in order to survive, but it can also teach lying, cheating, and criminal behavior.
I suppose courage can still be taught in the family even if the culture does not teach it. We can reward our children for showing both physical and intellectual courage---but showing courage in an amiable way, if possible.

The alchemical experiments were related to creating a metaphorical "gold" defined as the Self or the Spirit from out of the grosser "metals" of human nature.
The better metaphor would be turning lower evolved material life into the highest evolved "gold' of supermaterial Godhood. Who has that complete knowledge? Darwin as Faust?. Sociobiology guided by evolutionary religion as the method?
We know nature has been evolving from the simple to the complex and from unconsciousness to consciousness on its own without help, although it was driven by the material activation to Godhood within life, which I have called Tirips, interacting with outside natural selection and evolution.
Genetic engineering can now be added to the old idea of selective breeding in the new "alchemy" of learning how to turn lower evolved material life into the highest evolved gold of Godhood. That is a sacred path worthy of modern man, that is, for all men and women.
The challenge will be to overcome modern liberal and politically incorrect objections---and even traditionalist objections---to turning lower evolved material life into the highest evolved gold of Godhood. But that should be familiar territory for a modern Faust.

When the masculine or feminine traits of real human nature are taken to their extremes (and there are definite genetically-derived gender differences) the inclusionary nurturing qualities of females can help lead to egalitarian Marxism, and the exclusionary defensive qualities of males can help lead to racial supremacism. Either of these extremes of gender differences applied politically can end up damaging survival and reproduction in the long term. Extreme female nurturing can result in the breakdown of the protection of the people and the culture, and extreme male defensiveness can result in unnecessary and damaging wars. What we need in our social philosophy is a healthy balance between the gender traits of human nature.
Traditional conservatism creates a better more natural gender balance than modern liberalism which has feminized Western culture with cultural Marxism and broken down the protective masculine qualities of Western people, which is leading to being overwhelmed and even replaced by non-western people. But even traditional conservatism has failed to emphasize the natural human tendency to create protective states based on real kin and ethnic-centered, or group-selecting, human nature. A healthy balance between the gender traits of human nature, as well as kin and ethnic-centered human nature, suggests an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, for all groups. If we wish to save our homelands and what we are as men and women, an ethnopluralism of ethnostates should eventually be a future adaption of the constitutional separation of powers and states in the U. S..

For the historical, traditionally-understood God, I affirm Traditional Christianity, and the Involutionary Inward Path, for the same, evolving, but futuristically-understood God, I affirm the Evolutionary Outward Path.
I affirm two ways to understand Godhood: Traditionalist, looking back to God, and Futurist, looking forward toward evolution to Godhood; the micro–back, the macro-forward, affirming the same God, although the Theoevolutionary Church (TC) says that Godhood must be evolved to.
I affirm the conservative social philosophy which harmonizes with subsidiarity, agrarianism (including serious ecological concerns), separatism and a strictly interpreted “federalism” of the American variety, i.e. strong states rights, and above all local rights.
“Small is beautiful” is affirmed for conservative and sociobiological reasons, e.g. Beyondism; evolution seems to work best within the biological variety of a natural, conservatism. This can harmonize science and religion.
The Traditional Church is affirmed, for spiritual, conservative, and sociobiological reasons, with the important and vital addition of evolution, and with the "expanded" definition of Godhood defined as that which must be evolved to, a Godhood which was virtually, and blissfully “seen” or “experienced” inwardly by the great religious founders and sages. We see now that we evolve to Godhood.

I suppose Harry and Meghan are not responsible for their royal marriage being a sanctification of the ideology of modern liberalism or cultural Marxism, they were taught the same ideology of equality, integration, and involution as the rest of the Western world. I wish the happy royal couple well, but the sanctification of equality, integration, and involution will not bring the peace and order we all hope for.
The irony, or tragedy, is that the modern liberalism or cultural Marxism celebrated in this marriage will probably eventually lead to strongmen from the far left or far right taking over and blocking the freedoms of modern liberalism---often called for by the people---in order to create peace and order out of the social chaos caused by the attempts at the integration of distinctly different people in the same living space. Harry's own London is becoming a violent cultural zoo.
Why does this happen? Real human nature remains genetically kin and ethnic-centered and cultures are still created around that natural behavior. When we try to integrate distinctly different people in the same living space we end up with ethnic competitions that lead to social chaos, no matter how many ways we sanctify modern liberalism, even with love.
Real humanitarian people, real compassionate people, would develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates where each distinctive group and culture could proudly celebrate who they are and what they are, without damaging or corrupting other groups and cultures.

Material evolution has been smothered by traditional religion, and by the cultural Marxist versions of religion (at least as far as humans are able to smother evolution) and this has blocked the path to real Godhood. This has been a very deep and tragic transvaluation of life, values, and religion.
Just as the Scandinavian word "hel" as cold was turned on its head and made to mean a hot Hell, so matter was made into a Demiurge, a false urge ruling the world of matter like Satan. God was defined as beyond matter, life was defined as death, and death was defined as life.
That is as serious a metaphysical error as can be made. We now need to unblock this great spiritual blockade and turn religion back on its feet from standing on its head, and we need to get on with evolving in the material world to real supermaterial Godhood.
We need to bring science back into religion, or religion back into science (such as the evolutionary and genetic sciences) as an aid in the long and sacred path of life evolving toward Godhood. The arts and humanities also need to be included. That may bring realistic religious meaning, purpose and sacredness back to our disintegrating modern cultures and lives.

Affirmative Action, the effort to improve the lives of minority groups, is in reality part of the imperialistic and supremacist mind-set in advancing racial minorities not by merit but by racial grouping. It's not as bad as slavery but we can see as time goes by that the "equality" of Affirmative Action has been a front for imperialism and supremacism. We also see that Affirmative Action has been mainly directed by other more successful ethnic minorities who are disguising their own ethnic wills to power beneath the calls for equality, which sometimes makes poor ethnic groups only cannon fodder.
But before we get too upset by this we should realize that the drive toward group and ethnic selection is the primary selection choice in basic human nature because it has been the best means to successful survival and reproduction since humans became humans. And so the natural game goes on.
Rather than continuing the same see-saw or cyclic battles between distinctly different ethnic groups within our societies, which in reality is due to group-selection preferences in real human nature, and rather than slavery, imperialism, with unfair and corrupt social engineering programs like Affirmative Action (which only sets up resentment, anger and more ethnic revolutions), it would be far more natural and ethical to affirm an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
So who is keeping an ethnopluralism of ethnostates from naturally, and sanely, happening, which could at least in the U.S. be legally adapted from the constitutional separation of powers and states? In most cases it is ethnic groups and corporations who selfishly benefit, at least in the short-term, from slavery, supremacism, and imperialism, which they disguise with such things as "equality" and Affirmative Action---some without even knowing they are doing it. It may be cunning but it's stupid.

Not matter but the spiritual contains the mythical veils, it is the spiritual that puts up the veils against the path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
If all creatures are made in the image of God then contrary to the religious mystics all creatures are material and supermaterial, because Godhood is supermaterial not spiritual.
This transvaluation of God by religion I call the Great Spiritual Blockade. Materialism is veiled by spiritualism, not the other way around.
It is not matter that is illusionary, it is spiritualism; but this does not murder religion or Godhood as most critics of religion hope.
We can unveil the real path of natural material evolution to supermaterial Godhood and rescue religion from its slow death in the modern world. The evolutionary sciences can join religion in seeking real, not illusionary, Godhood.

Is President Trump America First or Israel First? He seems to be both, which makes him a dual loyalist, like his enemies the neoconservatives. Now that is a convoluted mix. But it seems to be the price of doing politics in America.
But Trump is now playing in a larger and more dangerous playground than his usual New York City real estate zoo. Trump's dual loyalty has gotten him into a real mess in the Middle East. Trump has agreed to moving the capital of Israel to Jerusalem. And he has supported Israel in its deadly competition with Iran.
This means the U.S. will have to militarily support Israel in a probable war with Iran. Iran may then be supported by Russia, with China as usual wisely staying out of it all. A very dangerous involvement. None of it is good for America.
The next conservative populist leader who rises through the dirty ranks of politics needs to really be only for America First....I suppose we could say that President Trump at least led the opening volley toward saving America.

In a recent interview venerable British actress Glenda Jackson asked the interesting question, how do you create a society in which there is genuine equality which acknowledges that we are different?
The word "society" suggests people associated together for common ends, common interests, common goals. But since "genuine" equality does not really exist, and in reality different ethnic groups are genetically and culturally distinctively different, this suggests that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the best political way to create homogeneous societies in which there is an equality that acknowledges that we are different. Trying to jam distinctly different ethnic groups together in the same society obviously is not working well in England or in the U.S. regardless of how much we are preached to about equality. Violence increases.
Although she does seem to have courage, I doubt Ms. Jackson would like this answer---too bad, she could sell it better than I do.

Led by depraved Academia, gender and race quotas in the U.S. have now made James Burnham's term on the liberal "suicide of the West" too broad to define what is now the "slaying of the West."
Even communist China has not fallen for bogus gender and race quotas and is proudly pushing a meritocratic system of schooling. They are also promoting genetic engineering and even positive eugenics to increase the intelligence of the already intelligent Chinese people.
How long will healthy and sane people in the West put up with selecting less qualified people for everything?! Perhaps old greed in hiring will save the day if reason and instinct cannot. Or those who have not been indoctrinated in the academic world will naturally choose by merit rather than quotas and will therefore be far more successful---assuming they can escape the quota police.
That could also continue the populist conservative rise in the West. The "deplorables," not the halls of ivy, might just save the West!

An article by Taki on the "gentleman" (Chronicles, May 2018) reminded me of past thoughts I've had on the gentleman.
If hip hop and and rap culture had their own independent state I doubt if I would have much to say about it, but they have been widely promoted in the whole country by the big and small media and have taken over popular culture the way Europe was taken over by barbarians in the Dark Ages. It then took over a thousand years to turn the barbarians back into European gentlemen.
When I say "gentleman" I'm not talking about a simpering over-civilized fop, I am talking about the old gentry, with good manners and a fighting spirit, a balance between the warrior and a cultured gentleman---which they still might teach in some out of the way school in the South. Taki reminds us that good manners are not a superficial thing, they serve a moral purpose, they illustrate that one is willing to put others first---which not only harmonizes with religion but with the preference for group-selection in real human nature for successful survival and reproduction.
But it's not just rap and hip hop. I don't affirm empires at all, but compare the gentlemen who ran the British empire with the neoconservatives who run the American empire. The Neos prefer cunning to courage, dual loyalties take the place of patriotism, making money is more important than morals principles, and the code of an eye for an eye is preferred to the code of the gentleman. Or think of modern country music stars, most of them act the exact opposite of the Southern gentleman, full of swaggering arrogance, glorifying drunkenness and promiscuity, frankly, acting like Black rappers.
What happened? The Big Media happened, promoting constant attacks against the traditional American people and traditional American culture in music, movies, television, portraying the gentleman as a fool or even as evil. Most of the producers of this junk are from New York or Los Angeles and could care less about the rest of the county.
I don't think I'm alone in wanting to see civilization return in both high and low culture. But distinctive people or ethnic groups make distinctive cultures, and for that I'm politically incorrect enough to say an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is necessary. Otherwise we continue to fall like the Roman and British Empires.

Correcting the great metaphysical error which chose to only experience, as a human, the God or Father Within in the Inward Path is the task of the Outward Path of theological materialism, which reaches real Godhood only through material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
This is a view of God which even "evolutionary" theologians like Teilhard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo have missed. They see God, as usual, as a non-material, spiritual, un-embodied consciousness to which man's consciousness is supposed to "evolve" to and “fuse" with, creating a sort of glorious, non-material, chimera. The “noosphere”is this sort of non-embodied consciousness.
Contrary to Teilhard and Aurobindo, and the whole history of the religious mystics, evolution does not evolve merely to a non-evolutionary world of non-material consciousness. A non-material spiritual God is no God at all, it is nothingness, it is the death of the material, which oddly is the way some founding mystics describe God, as No Thing.
Teilhard synthesizes the material and spiritual by saying that the material is really spiritual. Theological materialism synthesize the material and spiritual by saying that the spiritual is really material or supermaterial. Defining the material as spiritual can lead to defining material life as evil, or at least far less important than spiritual life. This leads to defining God as Nothing or God as definition or word only, or for ascetics only the inner experience of bliss, which is a metaphysical error greatly limiting the definition God.
Godhood does not "transcend” the world any more than beauty transcends the world. Godhood and the highest beauty are realized at the zenith of this world's evolution. But the Twofold Path of theological materialism conservatively retains the old Inward Path to the "God" Within while transforming it in the Outward Path of real material evolution to real Godhood.
Part of the reason behind the changes of Vatican II in the Catholic Church was the great worry that Nietzsche and his postmodernism followers were leading the modern world toward rejecting God and religion entirely. Better to lose a few traditionalists than lose sacred religion. That defines real conservatism, even though the Catholic Church retained the old metaphysical limitation of the inward experience of only a spiritual God.
The world is rejecting religious tradition and sacredness entirely and these changes, mentioned above, are necessary if we wish to survive and reach real Godhood by way of the sacred bonding of material evolution.

Consciousness is not a non-material thing as many religious mystics believe. Matter can be unconscious, but in the case of human beings matter can be conscious, or at least mainly conscious.
Religious mystics required a non-material consciousness and a non-material spiritual God, so when modern man rejected spiritualism he also rejected God and religion. That was a tragic metaphysical error.
Why tragic? When the West rejected the religions it was founded on it began to fall---all the great civilizations were founded on the sacralization of religion and fell when they lost their sacralizing religion.
The next religion, like all civilizations, needs to be built on the shoulders of past religions and civilizations, that is the foundation of conservatism. The old spiritual idea of God and the mystical hatred of matter needs to adapt to the reality that we evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood. Matter is good.
Religion, science, and the West, can revive together. The foundation of the "good" is the natural, real, material functioning of the evolving being, as in the case of the functioning of real human nature. The good also defines the "beautiful." The "true" combines the good and the beautiful.
The highest good requires knowing the good, the beautiful, and the true, but the ignorant can also be good, with less overall power, even if they don't "know" the good, as animals can.

Conservatives can legitimately criticize white nationalists for their attempts to centralize large diverse nations, but not for pointing out the importance of ethnocentrism. Open-border cultural Marxists are also mistaken centralizers and haters of real kin-centered and ethnocentric human nature.
The other last hold out of conservatives (and libertarians) against the importance of group-selection or ethnocentrism comes in defining individualism or individual selection as more important than group selection. But as the great sociobiologist E.O. Wilson put it : "within groups selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals."
Large countries are now virtually made up of ethnostates, whether they are allowed to be called that or not. Countries the size of the U. S., Russia, China, and continental Europe are made up of many ethnic groups usually located in virtual ethnostates.
All the forms of centralizing haven't prevented ethnopluralism from developing because group selection has always been the best means of successful survival and reproduction, which ends ends up forming ethnostates. The main thing centralizing is good for is protecting an ethnopluralism of ethnostates from marauding empires.
The constitutional separation of powers and states in the U.S. could be legally, not radically, adapted to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates against all centralization, accept for a federally protective defense against empires and globalism. This may happen anyway, by one means or another, because it is natural human behavior---better to do it consciously and rationally, not violently.

Conservative's could learn from the downfall of the swine due to the courage of feminists and liberals
Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Al Franken, Woody Allen, Jeremy Piven, James Levine, Steve Wynn, Louis C.K., James Franco, etc., and just recently Eric Schneiderman---but also non-Jewish men such as Kevin Spacey, Roy Moore, Garrison Keillor, Bill Cosby, and of course Bill Clinton. All treated women like shiksa's, the politically incorrect Yiddish word for blemished abominable non-Jewish women and therefore fair game to be abused.
And amazingly, it was women of the liberal feminist Me Too movement who had the balls to expose the swine, not conservative men or women who, as usual, worried about being accused of all sorts of politically incorrect things if they spoke out. That same fear didn't stop the feminists. Maybe it also had to due with the fact that many of the Me Too feminists were wealthy actresses who could at least survive if blackballed by Hollywood.
In any case, I would not have predicted the downfall of the swine due to the courage of feminists and liberals...Conservative's could learn from them.

If you want an empire then Trump's new national security adviser John Bolton is your man. Bolton constantly advocates the use of force to advance the American empire, which is the main way empires advance.
But intelligent and courageous people do not want an empire, they want ethnostates, or an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, because ethnostates are in harmony with real human nature, which remains as it has always been, kin-centered, local, and ethnocentric. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could even be established legally in the United States adapted from our constitutional separation of powers and states.
Why courageous? Because courage is needed to go against the prevailing globalism and cultural Marxism which rules the West. Courage is often more important than intelligence in finding the truth.
People don't bond with empires, empires are too far removed from people for natural altruism to work. But the exploiters and marauders of the earth prefer empires, which they selfishly dominate, and, irony of ironies, they often pursue for ethnocentric reasons.
Empires always fall apart and reform into ethnostates, or an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, as an honest reading of history shows us. But any ethnopluralism needs to be strongly protected and defended from marauding empires with some version of federalism. That is where a Bolton might come in handy, but he would have to first learn that force is only used to back up diplomacy. That is also what gangbangers need to learn.

Listen to brainwashed college students in almost any college or university today being interviewed on the street, it's like listening to zombies with eyes glazed over reciting absurd cultural Marxism (although they usually don't know that is what they are doing), which they have been taught since birth.
This is very serious. And traditional conservatives are not stopping it. Why not? Perhaps it's the religious base of conservatism affirming things like the virgin birth, resurrection, miracles, blocking basic material desires, and fateful unstoppable cycles, which the modern world does not and perhaps cannot believe.
After the racial-national supremacism of Hitler, fear of talking or even thinking about the biological origin of social behavior---even to the point of making laws against doing so---has allowed the brainwashing of cultural Marxism to enter and dominate all our schools.
The best hope I see for actually reviving education in America is to push and promote the evolutionary science of sociobiology with its accurate and realistic view of human nature as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against this human nature, with such experiments as Marxism, but culture is eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature.
This sociobiological view relates to both real conservatism and science, what else does? And it can counter cultural Marxism better and deeper than anything else in the modern world.
Then perhaps we can move on to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, even within democratic republics, for long-term harmony and order---and especially if religion can affirm life evolving materially, not spiritually, to supermaterial Godhood.
