"Classes" seem more related to the divisions that naturally develop within ethnically homogeneous societies, whereas different ethnicities within the same societies behave quite differently.
Think of the difference between Whoopi Goldberg, with her recent obscene attack on Justice Jeanine on "The View," and a 1950's housewife trying to out-virtue the traditional values of the upper middle class.
Today the left, the antifa movement, behaves more like Whoopi than a 1950's housewife, it's not a class competition, it's more like an ethnic war.
We are beginning to see that multi-ethnic societies create differences which changing "classes" cannot sooth. I think it will eventually lead to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates adapted to the constitutional separation of powers and states. It is an entirely natural thing to happen given real human nature and one hopes it happens legally and nonviolently.

The problem I see with the postmodern relativists is in believing that all truths are relative due to the fact that we only see what we first know. A better way of saying that is we see the real truths that our evolutionary development in consciousness and brain power allow us to see.
A frog sees different truths about its environment than a human sees and a human sees different truths than a God sees based on the evolutionary development of consciousness and brain power.
This is why the evolutionary thinkers who admit to evolutionary progress toward higher and higher truths were right. But it is also is not a development from the "bad" material to the ''good" spiritual, as the traditionalist school teaches. It is the evolution of material life to supermaterial life, and eventually the evolution to supermaterial Godhood, with higher and higher non-relative truths following the evolutionary trajectory.
We are not condemned to a "freedom" of relativity, we are honorably impelled by biological evolutionary drives toward real Godhood which must work along with the vagaries and changes of natural evolution.

The antifa movement, that is, the anti-fascists, anti-sexist, anti-racist, anti-homophobia, and anti-capitalist movement has been blocking freeway traffic, handicapping police departments, and often violently stopping free speech on college campuses, thinking that they are preventing the rise of an ever-present Nazism, when they are really only facing mild-mannered republicans who are afraid to be politically incorrect in reaction to them. I suppose a few of their leaders want to provoke actual Nazis so the wrath of the Media will help advance their Marxist cause.
Since not all American's are mild-mannered republicans who are afraid to be politically incorrect, the antifa movement may one day actually get the enemies they define; and it will be like the sophomore in the bar who taunts a quiet man who says nothing until he suddenly puts out the lights of the loudmouth with one punch.
But that is not what we want. We don't want to replace totalitarian Marxism with totalitarian Nazism. Real human nature is 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.
This means that what we want and need eventually is an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions, which could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism. That is far preferable to radical Marxism or totalitarian Fascism, and preferable to these antifa movements which are political dissimulations based on flawed definitions of real human nature, which are bringing us radical civil disruptions, even civil war, and are now increasing across the world within unworkable multicultural (multi-ethnic) societies.

President Trump came out of his meeting with Putin looking weakened, or maybe he was just tired---he is 72 years old. I don't know if it's true or false that Putin has big and bad blackmail on Trump, some illegal multimillionaire business deal, sexual scandal, or whatever, but whatever it would be Trump would have to believe it was big enough to destroy him.
Of course many of Trump's followers believe that all the charges against Trump are the result of fake news created by his enemies---and much of it is fake---but what Trump's many enemies do not understand is that Trump's followers are so starved for a real populist/nationalist leader who can do what Trump has done for America that they will support him in any case, transgressions and all.
The overlooking of Trump's faults in favor of his patriotism shows us how much the people have come to distrust the elites, how hungry Americans are for realism in Washington, and how much the people hate the Big Media and Hollywood.
Whether or not the growing differences in America are big enough to create another civil war, or if we can find a realistic way to get along---eg. an ethnopluralism of ethnostates adapted from the constitutional separation of powers and states---remains to be seen.

When we think of both Greek tragedy and the Christian mass as sacred ways to bring the individual to the group. soothing the alienation of the individual, we can defend those tragedies and masses with a more materialistic knowledge from the science of sociobiology, which examines the biological origin of social behavior within real human nature. This shows us, in the words of E.O.Wilson, that "within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." Social bonding ceremonies, celebrations, or rituals may include bonding with heroes or martyrs but they nevertheless bring the alienated individual and the group together in harmony, enhancing both.
The bonding problems come when religious, artistic, or political ceremonies or bonding rituals ask the individual to bond with things that do not relate or harmonize with real human nature, such as asking or demanding that the individual be universally altruistic or universally egalitarian when human nature is basically kin-centered and ethnocentric. Concern for others simply weakens as we move out to try to include the whole earth,
This is why our bonding ceremonies, celebrations, or rituals need to take real human nature into account if we want to bring the individual and the group together in unselfish harmony. The biological origin of our social behavior actually ends the intellectual defense of postmodern relativism, only they don't know it yet. The defense of real human nature affirms in general the populist nationalism now trying to rise in the corrupted West.
This also suggests that real human nature leads naturally to the cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. Given who we are this appears to be the best way we can bring the individual back to the group, soothing the alienation of the individual, while optimizing the gene expression we inherited from our human ancestors.
But even more deeply we can resolve the human tragedy when we affirm the sacred goal of evolving material life to supermaterial Godhood. That is what needs to be bonded in religious/philosophical celebrations and masses. which can also bring the unification or synthesis of religion and science, biology and culture. That is what can save a naturally and rightly separated humanity over time.

We need to be able to see when the old stage of consciousness and knowledge is inadequate and needs to advance to the next stage. But the past stage can be carried forward, as good conservatism affirms. Godhood remains but the path to Godhood is changed.
The advance is the understanding that Godhood is evolved to in the material and supermaterial world and is not non-material or spiritually-experienced only after strict ascetic deprivations, which is only a symbolic experience of real Godhood.
This advance or upgrade in consciousness can recover the long separation between religion and science, biology and culture. It was not enough to say that science and religion are both right but exist in different and separate fields---a nice try but inadequate.
The next stage of consciousness and knowledge acknowledges that Godhood can be reached after endless material and supematerial evolution, which will require this unification or synthesis of religion and science, biology and culture.

While surfing television channels looking for something distracting to watch I saw Rob Kardashian being criticized for being overweight by his mother and sisters. Rob was dressed like a white black rapper with cap skewed sideways, tattoos etc. which indicated to me the problem many young white men are now having with their identities.
There they sat, his overbearing unctuous mother, who helped turn her daughters into promiscuous hustlers who dress like black streetwalkers featuring very large buttocks, which black men seem to prefer---apparently it works because the girls have black husbands and boyfriends.
The sister's pick at their food as they criticize Rob, and they all have the same unemotional stoic yet whiny way of talking, which reminds you of the long-suffering dead talk of streetwalkers, or like soldiers in battle. And there sits Rob, obviously hurting, the product of this overbearing decadent family and our decaying mess of culture, with no father or friend to stick up for him, and with no authentic identity, since affirming any kind of white identity has become taboo in our culture.
Real human nature is gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic. The Kardashian's represent the opposite of this. All ethnic groups should be proud of who they are, it should not be a zero sum game where if one ethnic group gains an advantage another suffers an equivalent disadvantage. For that to be fair it might eventually require ethnostates.
Rob Kardashian and his whole generation need a good dose of ethnic pride (not more drugs) which would go a long way in curing what ails them. Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian and his generation suffer.

The state of denial of real human nature by the people is appalling and dangerous. And it's probably too much to say that it is/was all a diabolical plot, even though it looks like it was.
Cold climates favored altruism and group-think because you couldn't survive without the unselfish help of the group, and so altruism was selected and survived as a genetic trait in the people. Think of the Chinese who are criticized for not being individualistic enough, or the Swedes who are destroying themselves with wide open border immigration. Both groups had a very tough time in the Ice Age.
The people are in a dangerous state of denial and this is encouraged and promoted by political parties. the media, and the academic world, who know that if the people know the truth they will flock even more to populist/nationalism.
There is a way for us to "all get along," but real human nature leads naturally to the cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. That can be adapted in the U.S., Europe, Africa, China, etc.. That is a realistic way for us to "all get along" as much as is humanly possible. I say flock away people, and to hell with open immigration, egalitarianism, and cultural Marxism. Save yourselves!

The biggest and most tragic separation is not between Dionysian individualism (Nietzsche) and Apollonian groupism (Hegel) which they say is at the origin of the conflicts of tragedy. Real tragedy comes from humanly-created problems caused by not understanding or miss-defining the spiritual and the material.
Real tragedy is related to the ancient problem humans have had in claiming that the higher material or the supermaterial is spiritual and non-material. This has caused a great devaluing and a spiritual blockade against natural life evolving to real supematerial Godhood. Ignorantly or cynically blocking the path to real Godhood leads to real tragedy.
We can resolve this tragedy and have human "catharsis" when we affirm and do not blindly ignore the sacred goal of evolving material life to supermaterial Godhood. This is what needs to be bonded in religious/philosophical celebrations and masses. That is what can save humanity over time.

Nietzsche thought Socrates destroyed tragedy by bringing in reason and logic to try to define tragedy as well as to define "the good." Nietzsche thought both tragedy and the good were more like music, beyond words and logic.
But Nietzsche went beyond that and said that aristocrat's defined the good as themselves and not as abstract logic or reason, and not as Socrates abstractly defined the good.
I would prefer to think of that as more of an image by Nietzsche of how we need to bring truth, reason, and even God back to real material or supermaterial life after standing on its head in the abstract nothingness of definitions (but was Nietzsche's will to power spiritual or material?).
When men made God non-material, and defined God as the zenith of everything, then truth and the good also had to be non-material and spiritual, and that caused a problem in defining reality,
To be fair, religious ascetics did leave logic behind in pursuing the experience of the feeling of the blissful God Within, after blocking all the material drives of the flesh, including the drive to be logical. But then they went on to define that blissful peak-material experience as spiritual and beyond the material, just as philosopher's define truth and goodness.
When a material/supermaterial Godhood is seen as reached by way of material and supermaterial evolution then truth and goodness as well as beauty are put back on their feet after standing on their heads for centuries contemplating abstract nothingness. We can have truth, goodness, beauty, Godhood, religion, and yes, science, all back together again in real, evolving, non-abstract life, where they belong.

I believe the general sociobiological definition of human nature more or less affirms but also updates Jung's archetypes, and even Freud's Id.
Jung's genetically inherited archetypes for all human beings of the great mother, father, child, god, wise old man, trickster, hero, etc. can relate to the sociobiological definition of genetically inherited 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.
Those who follow Jung cannot legitimately leave out the archetype of ethnocentrism which is at the origin of the altruism of group-selection that allowed human beings to survive and reproduce successfully. The largely biological origin of most of our social behavior evolved and learned over much time to balance individual selection with group selection, finding out perhaps the hard way that "within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." (E.O. Wilson)
As to Freud's Id, which is the unconscious source of psychic energy derived from instinctual needs and drives, that can be deepened by the deeper material activation within life (which I call Tirips) to evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, which must work along with the outside forces of natural evolution. So God and nature need not be rejected.
We can balance religion, Freud, Jung, sociobiology, and the political ethnopluralism of ethnostates in a realistic and grand balancing synthesis for individuals and groups.

Religion and philosophy gradually moved away from nature and the chthonic gods of the underworld. The gods of the revealed religions are spiritual and not of the material world. Whereas science grew by bringing back the study of nature, but nature without religion and without the chthonic gods.
Nature is not as disorderly, irrational and diabolical as the chthonic gods of the underworld religions, but nature also does not eliminate the gods as science has done. Nature and the material world evolve to supermaterial Godhood in accord with the natural drives of life to survival and reproductive success.
The revealed religions feared nature, but so did the earlier chthonic religions. Both saw the material world and nature as disorderly, irrational and diabolical. So it was not understanding or misunderstanding nature that led to the religious fear of nature, as well as leading to the creation of gods that were beyond the reach of "evil" nature.
When religion and Godhood are rejected they cannot be legitimately replaced by irrational, chaotic, chthonic gods, or by atheistic science. We also don't require tragic art/religion to reconcile the rational and the irrational, the individual and society. All we need is the affirmation of ongoing evolution from the frogs to the Gods.

It probably began way back with the "universalism" of religious "spiritualism" and then moved on from there to political philosophy and culture in general.
It was highly cynical but Nietzsche was on to something when he saw the will to power behind those who advocate equality, which we see in Marxism, feminism, the civil rights movements, and postmodernism, with their demands for equality which are mainly the will to power or will to superiority of one group over the others.
When we clearly see and admit the biological origin of most of social behavior then we may be able to move past the great confidence game and swindle of equality, which only leads to civil disturbances and even civil war, because equality does not harmonize with real human nature.
No matter how often religions, political philosophies, or cultures tell us that we are all the same, the biological origin of most of social behavior has affirmed throughout human history that human nature is 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.
When presumptuous and arrogant politicians, feminists, etc. smile down on us condescendingly and tell us that we are all the same and must be equal, rather than telling them that they are dangerous fools seeking power, which they are, we need to tell them that real human nature leads naturally to the political and cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. Given who we really are this appears to be the best way we will "all get along."

I like the middle class when they do their main job of defending and maintaining conservative things, but I don't like their snobbery, specifically the middle class leftist snobbery against President Trump.
Trump is often vulgar---in a speech yesterday he talked about "kicking ass"---but vulgar or not Trump is getting important things done when most politicians on the left and the right sound like grandma giving etiquette lessons that no one listens to.
Trump is trying to do, and doing, what he told the populist/nationalists he would do, protecting our borders, making American trade fair by putting up tariffs, appointing conservative judges, etc.
The big unanswered question is why does Trump capitulate to Israel and Saudi Arabia in their attempts to destroy Iran when Trump stands up to every great power on the planet? That could end up undoing all the things Trump is doing right---it is the way of war, even world war. On this subject of course we see no objection by the leftist snobs in the controlled big media.

The reconciliation of the individual and the group is not an easy thing to balance but it's not a Greek tragedy
Many problems result from making the human and the divine opposites. This makes the material and the spiritual opposites, and science and religion opposites, and eventually filters down to political opposition.
This great religious/philosophical error is overcome by seeing the divine and human as only different levels of material evolution and not as opposites. We evolve to Godhood in the material world.
According to Elliot Jurist's ("Beyond Hegel and Nietzsche") tragedy was defined by Hegel and Nietzsche (and the Greeks) as the highly emotional reconciliation of the human and the divine, and the individual and the group.
I say the reconciliation of the individual and the group is not an easy thing to balance but it's not a Greek tragedy. The reconciliation of the individual and the group are affirmed in the empirical sociobiological knowledge that "within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." (E.O. Wilson) "Tragedy" comes from getting that balance wrong. Whole empires, nations, and regions rise and fall related to this sociobiological balancing act.
Getting the reconciliation of the individual and the group right means, among other things, discerning the difference between creative social individuals and creative antisocial individuals, which modern psychometric testing can help with, assuming the sociobiological knowledge of the biological origin of most of our social behavior is affirmed. (was Hegel social and Nietzsche antisocial?)
Politically this reconciliation also means setting up or adapting an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in democratic republics, or wherever (legally and nonviolently) in line with the real kin and ethnic preferences of real human nature.

The liberal idea that the world can be improved by human efforts (meliorism) which conservative's scoff at is no less abstract or impractical than the advance of religious man to a spiritual God in heaven.
The philosophy of theological materialism sees the material world evolving to the supermaterial world and sees Godhood as the supermaterial zenith of material evolution. This is as fixed and immutable a principle as the abstract idea of a non-material spiritual Divine.
But both science and religion will need to accept the existence of a fixed activation within life to evolve toward the ultimate success of supermaterial Godhood, which works along with outside natural evolution and selection.
Politically the solution to the confusion of ethnic and cultural diversity, and the confusion between the individual versus the group, which liberals and conservative's constantly argue about, is to establish an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which harmonizes with kin and ethnic-centered human nature, as empirically defined by the science of sociobiology, as well as being affirmed by conservative tradition.
"Within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." (E.O. Wilson.) The conservative tradition of the constitutional separation of powers and states could be adapted to this.
Culture is most deeply founded in religious philosophy but in a religion that sees the material world evolving toward a material/supermaterial Godhood, bringing spiritual, intellectual, and political abstractions back to the biological origin of most of our social behavior, which includes religion and politics.

While patriotic Americans were busy working, raising children, going to church, and serving in the military, they barely noticed the vile and nefarious march through our schools and through the media by modern liberals who were really cultural Marxists.
So the old WASP (White Anglo/Saxon Protestant) ethos of the Ivy League schools, which had taught confidence and pride with a bit of patriotism thrown in, now taught people like Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama how to be condescending, insufferable, liberals spouting cultural Marxism to the lowly proles, who Hillary really thinks are "deplorables."
Three fourths of college students recently interviewed by a conservative journalist said they did not love or even like America, although they could not articulate why, not having absorbed much of the cultural Marxism taught to them by their condescending, insufferable "professors," but having absorbed the social status of hating President Trump.
So now, after sending our children to good schools to be brainwashed, we have a real cultural mess on our hands, created mainly by the vile and nefarious modern liberals and cultural Marxists who---let's be honest---we allowed to march through our schools and through the media due to our ignorance, but mainly due to the vile and nefarious lies of the cultural Marxists.
What can we do about it? The biological origin of our social behavior, as empirically explained by sociobiology, actually ends the intellectual defense of cultural Marxism and postmodern relativism. As long as we are alive every cell in our body demands survival and reproductive success. This natural activation can be blocked, subverted, or it can be unknown to us, but it can't legitimately be intellectually or instinctively denied.
This defense of real human nature affirms in general the populist nationalism now trying to rise in the corrupted West, which I believe will one day lead to the political and cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism, along with the legal American constitutional separation of powers and states. It won't be easy but there is nothing better we can do.

We assimilate past religion but we also transform it. This may not be the Traditionalist but it is the Conservative path.
Conservative culture retains the past while transforming it. Natural laws are based in biological principles which lead to moral principles. The Twofold Path seeks to retain the past while transforming it.
The Involutionary Inward Path follows the traditional religious experience seeking the "God-Within," which is called spiritual but is a peak-material experience of bliss defined as God, derived from blocking material desires and drives. Virtually all the religious founders followed this path.
Two quotes: "And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires." (Galatians 5:24) "So long as the love, even the smallest, of man toward woman is not destroyed, so long is his mind in bondage as the calf that drinks milk is to his mother." (Buddha)
The Outward Path to survival and reproductive success within life has a logical and instinctive supreme goal which does not conflict with religion or with natural evolution. Ongoing supreme success in the survival and reproduction of material evolution in the universe leads to real Godhood, first glimpsed in the Inward Path, transformed and fulfilled in the Outward Path.

It's a Marxist scam, this affirmation of self-invention and culture-invention, leaving out the biological origin of most of our social behavior. This includes most of modern philosophy.
Why would we want to leave biology and genetics out of philosophy? It seems to be both a conscious and unconscious scam. The great irony is that it is the will to survival and reproductive success (deeper than the will to power) that most pushes the rejection of the biological origin of our social behavior.
If we can ever see it for the scam that it is then we can really start evolving and advancing---all groups can. As E.O, Wilson says regarding human survival, "Within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." This basic group-selection preference leads logically and instinctively (and humanely) not to Marxism but to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.

In his book "Beyond Hegel and Nietzsche" Elliot Jurist writes about culture as custom (objective realm) and culture as self-development (subjective realm) and then how "self-fathoming" is the third sense of culture. I think there is a fourth which encompasses the other three and it is the biological origin of social behavior, emphasized by E.O.Wilson in neo darwinism. That is the most profound and deepest sense of culture largely shunned by philosophers.
Yet even deeper within the biology of life is an activation to evolve life toward supermaterial Godhood, and this is a sense and foundation of culture shunned even more than sociobiology by philosophy, science and religion. Even the religious evolutionary thinker Teilhard de Chardin's evolutionary God is as non-material and spiritual as the God of traditional religion. The deepest sense and foundation of future culture is the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood,
