The realistic way to solve Martin Buber's “I-Thou and I-It'” way of looking at the world

The realistic way to solve Martin Buber's “I-Thou and I-It'” way of looking at the world is not to define the I-Thou as identifying with a spiritual God ruling all people and demanding that we religiously call each other “Thou” rather than “It,” but rather to acknowledge and and affirm that the biological origin of social behavior favors the survival of the I-It attitude with all ethnic groups and races, because all groups biologically seek survival and reproductive success for themselves first; we can then redefine the I Thou as respecting the right of each ethnic group to seek survival and reproductive success living separately in ethnostates with ethnopluralism.

The religious justification for an ethnopluralism of ethnostates need not reach down to spiritualism but up to the process of the material evolution of life toward Godhood, activated from within every cell of living bodies, which then react and adapt to the various outside environments that life lives in. This activation is the same activation that leads to the desire to successfully survive and reproduce. The goal of evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either politics, science, or religion. When Godhood is seen as a naturalistic and theological goal, the goal of evolution, then biology and theology need not settle for the empty spiritualism. Nature and philosophy can be seen as life materially evolving toward ascending levels of Godhood. We can realistically define the I Thou as best realized by respecting the right of each I-It ethnic group to seek survival and reproductive success and their evolution toward Godhood living in ethnostates with ethnopluralism, and with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, chosenites, Marxists, etc., with a defensive federalism.

Defending an always evolving aristocracy (from the archive)

 It is usually not said that aristocracy does not depend on wealth or civilized taste alone but also on genetic qualities. Good genetic qualities lead to intelligence etc. which in turn can lead to a financial aristocracy, but then education and civilization are required to make a real aristocracy.

Although I am more or less a populist on the right believing in localism, and the separation of powers, states, and people, I can't be against the inequality of wealth, the level of civilization, or genetic qualities, I am not a socialist or Marxist. But the genetic lag between people and cultures, which is one of the main causes of problems between people and cultures, can in fact be addressed with humane genetic and eugenic actions for all who desire it.

But the goal is not merely to develop a wealthy and civilized human evolving aristocracy, but to continue evolving on earth and out into the cosmos toward Godhood, which is defined as the highest material and supermaterial aristocracy, the highest beauty, truth, goodness, consciousness and intelligence. This evolution toward Godhood defines the sacred goal of life.

As to “heroes of the mind,” they need to be linked to the evolution of life, human life, and to the evolution of higher species on the path to Godhood. That is the first supposition of human history and the most worthy goal of religion, philosophy, art and politics. It all starts from this natural basis. Compare this goal to the consciousness, thoughts, and conceptions of modern intellectuals.

As I have suggested here before regarding high art, we drifted away from didactic and moral art as we became more literate, but as evolutionary psychologists have pointed out, story-telling had survival benefits in the Pleistocene, and it still does, when we relate beauty to real biological life, evolution, and religion. There is no need to use a hammer to didactically or morally inspire in art, past aristocracies have shown us that art is usually best when it is subtle. The idea of Godhood attained in future evolution has sacred artistic and religious value, but it also has survival and reproductive value. And great art has always affirmed the sacred.

We can have, and we need, both science and religion

The primal world (energy or will) belongs to both the physicist and the theologian. Naturalism can be enlarged to theological materialism. Life and the world is evolving toward Godhood. Evolution never ends, it moves inevitably in a pattern---even though it has its random elements---and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat---toward higher and higher more effective living forms, always evolving toward ascending levels of Godhood. We can have biological idealism grounded in naturalism, we can have, and we need, both science and religion. We need more than postmodernism in the academic world, hedonism promoted by the Big Media, modern liberalism on the left, libertarianism on the right, or totalitarian Marxism.

What kind of order defines the most human order and peace possible in the long term?

Order must be preserved at any rate or at any price. Peace is the great End in all Governments. Liberty is the End only in the Best.” said Edmund Burke.

But what kind of order defines the most human order and peace possible in the long term? Much depends on how we define human nature, which in turn defines the order and peace possible in the long term. If for example your aim is to create an orderly communist society where everyone is equal in all things you will have to you use force, which eventually leads to social rebellion, because human nature has always been naturally genetically kin and ethnic centered. When real human nature is allowed to be what it is, it more often leads to regionalism, localism, general conservative values, and eventually ethnostates, which then can offer the most peace and liberty possible given real human nature. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, and protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc,

Spirit is Matter

Matter was Spirit to Teilhard de Chardin. He believed he had resolved a core conflict of the split between Matter and Spirit, between Body and Soul. He believed he understood that the evolution of matter was one and the same with the evolution of spirit (consciousness).

"The Way Teilhard Saw It


               Spirit did not by the touch of the divine
               call lowly Matter to life,
               rather Matter was Spirit
                     from the absolute beginning
               latent with unimaginable power
               in the embryo of a cosmic mustard seed
               dreaming of bursting into flower!
                     -- Charles C. Finn, August 10, 2021”


Theological materialism sees it the opposite way: spirit is matter, there is no spirit. Spirit and matter are of one essence and not dualistic, just as energy can “freeze” into matter, and matter can unfreeze into energy. It's not really accurate to say that matter is the inferior aspect of spirit and spirit the superior aspect of matter, spirit is really super-materiality and not something apart from matter. This means you really can't define spirit and matter as good and evil, but you can define matter as evolved and unevolved. Evolution is the activation of the will to life within matter to evolve to Godhood, working along with outside evolution and national selection. Godhood is ascending levels of super-materiality.

History as the narrative of progress

A big philosophical and religious divide today is between those who see history as the narrative of progress (Hegel, Cattell? Wilber?) and those say the world lacks teleological design and purpose in the material world ( Schopenhauer, early Nietzsche, Postmodernism, Science?).

The hopeless relativity of values that is promoted by modern philosophy is untrue and unreal. There exists a biological teleology, a design and purpose in the material world, flowing through all life, which offers freedom but within a determined biological teleology.

I ask why does “life” “live?” Why is life animate rather than inanimate? Why does life have metabolism, growth, reproduction? Why doesn’t life just sit there doing nothing? Why has life persisted time and again in evolving from the simple to the complex under the most extreme conditions?

It is more than an outward action or reaction, there is an inward vitalism working within and shaped by outside evolution. This is the activation of the will to life, and when it is amplified it is seen as the will-to-evolve-toward-Godhood. I think it was Cattell who said evolution moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms.

This process of evolution is activated from within every cell of living bodies, which then react and adapt to the various outside environments that life lives in. This activation is the same activation that leads to the desire to successfully survive and reproduce. And this activation is a material/supermaterial activation, but not spiritual.

The goal of evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion. When Godhood is seen as a naturalistic and theological goal, the goal of evolution, then biology and theology need not settle for empty spiritualism. Nature and philosophy can be seen as life materially evolving toward ascending levels of Godhood.

The fall of Afghanistan to the uber-territorial warrior Taliban at the hands of the nurturing girly men of the Biden administration

 The Biden administration is stuffed with super angry, leftist feminists, like Biden advisor Susan Rice, who probably scares the hell out of weak-minded Biden himself, as well as dominating the girly men of the Biden administration, like Antony Blinken, our 71st United States secretary of state.

This is what happens to empires that are infected with leftists gender politics and with social behavior that does not correspond to real human nature, which is is genetically gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, and religious-making, as well as being biologically kin-centered and ethnic-centered, even xenophobic, with group-selection and ethnic selection as the primary unit of successful selection followed by individual selection.

The fall of Afghanistan to the uber-territorial warrior Taliban at the hands of the nurturing girly men of the Biden administration encapsulates in miniature the features of the fall of empires.

The best way to avoid human stagnation and immobility

Ethnocentric ethnostates are the default political position, or the selection made usually automatically or without active consideration, due to real human nature, which and has always been genetically kin and ethnic centered. Aristocracy is also society’s default position, as F. H. Buckley wrote about (“For a Politics of Mobility” Modern Age, Summer 2020). “...it is mobility that’s unnatural, a brief interlude in a long history...Charles Murray attributes the rise of aristocracy to the move to an information economy in which premium wages are paid to high-IQ workers. Intelligence is largely heritable... Capitalism tends inexorably toward immobility, he argued, because of capital’s tendency to grow more quickly than the economy as a whole. To those who have, more is given; and great fortunes accumulate over time.”

I believe ethnostates and meritocracies are the best way to deal with these default political positions to avoid human stagnation and immobility. Evolutionary conservatism believes that if real kin and ethnic-centered human nature was allowed to be what it is, it would naturally lead to regionalism, localism, general conservative values, eventually ethnostates, and finally an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc., and defended by a defensive federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states.

As to aristocracies, ascetics and others put up a Great Spiritual Blockade against the evolving material world, which actually blocks the real path to Godhood of material evolution. The natural world has to be unblocked if we are to reach ascending levels of Godhood by way of material evolution.

Theological materialism defines human evolution toward Godhood as aesthetically evolving toward the beautiful, religiously the good, and philosophically and scientifically the true

The synthesis of theological materialism defines human evolution toward Godhood as aesthetically evolving toward the beautiful, religiously the good, and philosophically and scientifically the true.

Nature can be defined as divine, not demonic, without the fiction of spirituality when we can see that nature only looks like an endless war of all against all for success in survival and reproduction and nothing more, until we affirm that we are also aided in evolution by an inward, purely physical activation to materially evolve toward ascending levels of life all the way to Godhood, which works along with the shaping of outside evolution and selection. Evolution moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms.” (Cattell)

Materially evolving toward ascending levels of Godhood is how we can define nature as divine not demonic and how we can see beyond the idea of morality in nature having no other demonstrable ultimate function than, as Edward O. Wilson put it, being a circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact. We are materially evolving toward Gods and we should help it along the way. Qualities such as intelligence, emotional stability, conscience (altruism), good health, good sensory organs, longevity, these are some of the aims of eugenics, and these things reach their highest quality, or their zenith, as evolution moves toward Godhood, which is aesthetically the beautiful, religiously the good, and philosophically and scientifically the true.

All races are “systemically racist”

All races are “systemically racist” when human behavior is seen from the realistic biological origin of social behavior. The Black Lives Matter movement which has been loudly accusing all whites of being racist is driven by the very same systemic black racism, and we are not going to solve any racial problems until we admit this.

The biological origin of social behavior which was introduced with Darwin and later sociobiology showed us that real human nature is and has always been genetically kin and ethnic centered (ie. racist and ethnocentric) with group selection or ethnic selection as the main unit of successful survival and reproduction, followed by individual selection. America has not successfully united different races and ethnic groups, we are naturally fragmenting into a nation of competing races in a zero game where the gains of one ethnic group is offset by the losses of another ethnic group, with much cruel social discord in the process. But all is not lost.

As one historian put it, what formerly divided us can put us back together again. It would be far more realistic to talk of un-assimilating differences rather than about superiority/inferiority. A true natural rights or civil rights movement would promote ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states.

Western political philosophy has wrongly placed the individual as the most basic metaphysical and political unit

Western political philosophy has wrongly placed the individual as the most basic metaphysical and political unit, and now its coming back to bite us. The neo-Darwinist science of sociobiology was not around when the great political philosophers did their thinking.

Here are some quotes from sociobiologists:

"Within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals." (David Sloan Wilson)

Hereditary altruists form groups so cooperative and well-organized as to out-compete non-altruists groups.” (E.O. Wilson “The Social Conquest of the Earth.”)

"The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior . .is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact. " Edward O. Wilson

---

As I repeat here often: Human nature evolved to prefer kin and ethnic group because those traits were more successful in survival and reproduction for individuals and groups. Even altruism, being for others, was created as the preference for kin and ethnic group; altruism weakens as we move out toward universalism, which is the main reason why communism, socialism, and globalism don't work well.

Evolutionary conservatism adds to and deepens basic paleoconservatism by affirming the biological origin of social behavior as defined mainly by the science of sociobiology. Human nature is biologically kin-centered and ethnic-centered, even xenophobic, as well as being genetically gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, and religious-making, with group-selection and ethnic selection as the primary unit of successful selection followed by individual selection. Alas, like the liberals and neoconservatives even the paleoconservatives block or conceal the ethnic-centered and xenophobic parts of human nature.

Evolutionary conservatism believes that if real kin and ethnic-centered human nature was allowed to be what it is, it would naturally lead to regionalism, localism, general conservative values, eventually ethnostates, and finally an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc., and defended by a defensive federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states.

Conservatism without biology is the doom of today's conservatism

Conservatism without biology is the doom of today's conservatism, as seen in Ross Douthat book The Decadent Society: How We Became Victims of Our Own Success.” Douthat's answer to the decadence which has taken over the West is to suggest “a potentially flourishing Christian African continent migrating north to the older seat of Christendom, reminiscent of Evelyn Waugh’s short story “Out of Depth,” in which a future dystopian England is served and saved by African missionaries.” (John M. DeJak, Chronicles, Aug 2020)

Conservatism without biology seems to have been caused by a combination of intellectual and moral cowardliness more than by ignorance; even mentioning the biological origin of social behavior in today's decadent “woke” world means almost certain professorial and social death. But in ignoring the biological origin of social behavior the West is dying and that is more important than the plight of any individual.

Human nature evolved to prefer kin and ethnic group because those traits were more successful in survival and reproduction for individuals and groups. Even altruism, being for others, was created as the preference for kin and ethnic group; altruism weakens as we move out toward universalism, which is the main reason why communism, socialism, and globalism don't work well and tend to use force to impose an unnatural universal altruism.

Evolutionary conservatism adds to and deepens basic paleoconservatism by affirming the biological origin of social behavior as defined mainly by the science of sociobiology. Human nature is biologically kin-centered and ethnic-centered, even xenophobic, as well as being genetically gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, and religious-making, with group-selection and ethnic selection as the primary unit of successful selection. Alas, like the liberals and neoconservatives even the paleoconservatives block or conceal the ethnic-centered and xenophobic parts of human nature due it seems to universalist religious edicts.

Evolutionary conservatism believes that if real kin and ethnic-centered human nature was allowed to be what it is, it would naturally lead to regionalism, localism, general conservative values, eventually ethnostates, and finally an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc., and defended by a defensive federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states. Will we ever do it? Can we do it?

How nature can be defined as divine not demonic without the fiction of spirituality

Nature can be defined as divine not demonic without fiction of spirituality when we can see that nature only looks like an endless war of all against all for success in survival and reproduction and nothing more until we affirm that we are also aided in evolution by an inward, purely physical activation to materially evolve toward ascending levels of Godhood, which works along with the shaping of outside evolution and selection. “Evolution moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms.” (Cattell) Materially evolving toward ascending levels of Godhood is how we can define nature as divine not demonic and how we can see beyond the idea of morality in nature having no other demonstrable ultimate function than, as Edward O.

Naturalistic biological determinism with theological materialism

I think in terms of a realistic or naturalistic biological determinism, which leads not to a bias of idealism but calls the human brain a survival organ that sees the world in terms of survival and reproductive success. This is not a Kantian bias it is the real world as it is. I see a natural will to survival and reproduction success of the genes also aided in evolution by an inward, purely physical activation to materially evolve toward ascending levels of Godhood. This is not a “transcendental” idealism but a natural evolutionary upward evolutionary drive working along with natural selection and evolution. We lack a total worldview that seamlessly includes both science and religion when all our social schemes are driven by this biological origin of social behavior, and the universe really is a mechanism for evolving Gods, which we should consciously get in step with since we are already unconsciously driven by it. Art and politics follow with evolutionary realism and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, and with theological materialism in religious philosophy.

Metaphysics is nonsense

Metaphysics is nonsense in all the meanings of that word: foolish, not logical or reasonable, and literally not of the senses. It is impossible to have knowledge not of one material sense or another, even the vaunted "intellectual intuition," which mystics claim brings truths from beyond the world of the senses, is nonsense in all the meanings of that word. Abstract theory with no basis in reality is a game we can play but the material object is all when defining reality, and even when defining supermaterial Godhood.

As I have written here before: Nonexistent spiritual definitions have been given far too much attention and power in religion and philosophy, which has led to misdefining and degrading the real world. Ascetics even put up a Great Spiritual Blockade against the material world, which actually blocks the real path to Godhood of material evolution. When people like Paul Tillich or Heidegger say such things as, “God is being-itself, not being,” they perpetuate the same belief in nothing but a mode of thinking.

Spiritual definitions need to drop back to their support role or defining role and they need to cease to be Gods themselves. The natural world has to be unblocked if we are to reach real Godhood by way of evolution. The confusing name-games for God will stop when Godhood is seen as existing in the same sense and the same world that everything else exists in. The exoteric needs to rise again over the esoteric in religious theology, and does so with theological materialism where Godhood is seen as a supermaterial object evolved to in the material world.

But The Twofold Path can make room for the traditional, non-object-idea-only definitions of the God-Within, or even the bliss feelings of the Father-Within of the Inward Path of the great religions---this is included but transformed in the Outward Path of the theological materialism of the projected Theoevolutionary Church. This brings the real world into religion and religion into the real world, and most importantly it unblocks the long-blocked natural path to evolving to real Godhood, the real purpose of existence, which is only reflected in the God-Within. This means a transvaluation of Plato's and I dare say Heidegger's world, long overdue.

Religion and science need an evolutionary tune up followed by politics

It has been said that politics is down stream from culture, and culture is down stream from religion. But religion has been slowly dying since the the 17th and 18th century Enlightenment, and it's demise has been speeding up since then. Science has not filled the gap although for many in the West it has tried to take the place of religion. Both religion and science need a tune up where they can take things from each other.

As I wrote here back in 2013: “The transfiguring goal for Friedrich Nietzsche in his early writings was the creation of great men, a republic of genius. Although that is very important it is not nearly enough. Renewal requires the religious goal of our evolution to Godhood in the cosmos, which brings a far more exalted renewal of consciousness, and contains the power to revive religion, philosophy and art in the enlarged modern world.

It is not tragic music, as Nietzsche and Schopenhauer thought, which expresses “the immediate language of the will,” it is evolution. It is not the Will To Power but the Will To Godhood that activates life, which evolution then shapes, that is the real source for a renewal of mythopoetic power. Evolution is the super-epic for art, glorifying the struggle to attain Godhood. Art can bring religion to life but it is not religion.

Religion and philosophy can recognize evolutionary religion as what we need, politics can help create it, and art and religious rituals can affirm it. Our evolution can even be democratic, with a federal system respecting and protecting the independent parts of the whole, maintaining the separate variety which advances evolution best, now we can envision cooperative competition in evolution, as we gradually evolve beyond the human sub-species toward Godhood.

The Twofold Path brings together inward traditional religion with outward material-supermaterial evolution. The Twofold Path offers conservatism and synthesis to religion and science, and allows the new to work along with the old, without the damage of revolution, and most importantly offers the divine evolutionary path to real Godhood.

I did not erect theological materialism on the ruins of Christianity, as modern thinkers did with science and the humanities, I wanted to renew the religious building, not tear it down. This rebirth was done through the Twofold Path, where the God-Within, the Father-Within, is seen as the first glimpse, or the mirror of the Godhood reached through material and supermaterial evolution. But this was a revelatory insight and not done simply to retain Christianity, and not done because I in fact do respect the conservative thinkers who see the great value for life in traditions.

Early Nietzsche could not see his way out of the loss of both religion and science other than through the rebirth of art-myth as a guide to truth, along with creating individual great men as the goal of culture. Nietzsche thought that this loss of myth was the result of the reasoning of Socrates which supposedly destroyed myth, and also after the “historical sense” and the abstract pursuit of knowledge for knowledge sake in modern times further destroyed myth and religion. Kant helped this destruction along by showing the limits of knowledge, and Schopenhauer by adding the Will as the superior force to all knowledge.

Theological materialism and the Theoevolutionary Church can revive both religion and science after modern life could not retrieve them as a satisfactory guide to truth. This brings along the religious-cultural goal of evolving increasingly great men, and also the sacred goal of attaining real Godhood in evolution in the Outward Path, the God first seen and mirrored in the Inward Path of the great religions.”

How the West is increasingly lost to the foundation of real human nature and human behavior

We all, whether we know it or not, left and right, follow the directive of the biological origin of social behavior. But the left is more lost from this foundation than the right, because many on the left---but even some on the right---consider the biological origin of social behavior an evil idea, which really means that they think human nature and human behavior are evil.

The Marxist change in direction of modern Western culture does not follow the prompting of the biological origin of human social behavior and believes instead that nurturing and the environment alone account for human behavior. Never the less they are driven by the same biological origin of social behavior seen in their biological wills to power.

Here is a pithy quote from the great sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson: “I see no way out of the problems that...tribalism creates other than humans just becoming more honest and fully aware of themselves....The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior . .is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact. Morality has no other demonstrable ultimate function."

An ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups is merely applied biology. A true natural rights or civil rights movement would promote ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states.

Both the left and the right fall apart in their ultimate answers to racism

Charles Murray can't be accused of cowardliness in his work on the biological origin of intelligence, but neither can the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement in affirming that there can be racism behind human behavior. But both fall apart in their ultimate answers to racism.

Charles Murray believes American individualism is the answer to racism or group-selection, and the Black Lives Matter movement believe that only whites can be racist or group-selecting.

Charles Darwin himself argued for group selection believing that tribes of moral men “have an immense advantage” over "fractious bands of pirates''. E. O. Wilson of Harvard University (the father of sociobiology) and David Sloan Wilson (no relation) of Binghamton University affirm group selection, although selection takes place on multiple levels simultaneously. This can be summed up in the pithy comment: “Selfishness beats altruism within groups. Altruistic groups beat selfish groups.”

The biological origin of social behavior which came with Darwin and later sociobiology shows that real human nature is and has been genetically kin and ethnic centered (ie. racist and ethnocentric) with group selection as the main unit of successful survival and reproduction, followed by individual selection. America has not successfully united different races and ethnic groups, we are naturally fragmenting into a nation of competing races in a zero game where the gains of one ethnic group is offset by the losses of another ethnic group, with much cruel social discord in the process. But all is not lost.

We need to gradually realize the reality that multicultural multi-ethnic societies just don't work. The twenty first century could be the century of the rise of ethnostatism. As one historian put it, what formerly divided us can put us back together again. It would be far more realistic to talk of un-assimilating differences rather than about superiority/inferiority. A true natural rights or civil rights movement would promote ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc.

Economic reform needs to synchronize with or even follow real human nature

Economic reform needs to synchronize with or even follow real human nature. And real human nature is best defined by the science of sociobiology which affirms the biological origin of social behavior.

Edward O. Wilson wrote “The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior . .is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact...”

Human nature has been and remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection.

Which economic philosophy best synchronizes with or even follows real human nature? It would center on an ethnopluralism of ethnostates which could be conservatively and legally established in America largely within the traditional American framework of our separation of powers and states. We would conservatively take something from economic nationalism especially, but also from laissez-faire capitalism and perhaps distributism. We need to honor real human nature and the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with their independence protected by economic nationalism and a defensive federalism.

The dangerous mistake libertarians make regarding individualism and altruism and accepting the old in the new (from the archive

 I had been thinking about how conservatism needs to be added to poetry, art and music when we speak of “making things new” over time, the old included with the new, when I watched an interview with Glenn Greenwald, the gay reporter and promoter of the NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden. It occurred to me that there is a connection here with the philosophical (and now scientific) mistake libertarians make regarding individualism and altruism.

E. O. Wilson the great innovator in sociobiology, has recently affirmed group-selection as the primary unit of selection. This does not mean that kin-selection and individual selection are not important, but our basic survival affirms group-selection first, which is embedded in human nature.

What is missing or deemphasized by individualism is the biological foundation of altruism at the base of social behavior and at the foundation of morality itself. Some libertarians even admit the natural pull of group morality but then tend to see this as something innovative people need to fight against. They are in good company, even Nietzsche made this mistake.

That way of thinking is too easily applied to anti-social hedonism, which easily walks through the open door of individualism, where anti-social deviations and even criminal behavior justify themselves by alluding to the sacredness of individualism.

But conservatism also needs to find better ways of making things new. I am not talking about progressivism, I'm talking about having a way within the system for innovators and whistle-blowers to make the old new. Otherwise we lose creativity and we stagnate, and stagnation is not conservative. But innovators and whistle-blowers also need to acknowledge the vital importance of altruism and group morality, even above individual morality.

Personally, I empathize with the problems of innovators, I have been developing a new religious philosophy, which includes the old in the new, and I am an outsider. But I am a patriotic and conservative outsider refusing to affirm anti-social or radical revolution. I think it is vital to be able to tell the difference between social and antisocial innovations, which is of course not always easy. Social psychology, psychometrics, has been developing ways, tests, etc. (see Cattell) to help us do this.

The silent white majority is beginning to wake up to the racial scam of “wokeness”

 “When a small minority of any country’s population becomes a threat to the majority, the minority’s future is uncertain.” William Lind

Blacks are about 13% of the U.S. population and the silent white majority is beginning to wake up to the fact that the Black Lives Matter Movement is really a racist black power movement. At the same time the pandemic is beginning to wake up white parents to the fact that the Critical Race Theory being taught to our children in all our schools is designed to destroy traditional white society and Western culture.

But Americans are not awake enough yet to affirm the biological origin of social behavior. The problem largely stems from a tragic misreading of real human nature which has been and remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection. You can't build a lasting multicultural and multiracial nation with real human nature.

If whites in the future want to avoid sedition, discord, and racial civil war they will honor the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, in harmony with real human nature. Then protect each ethnostate from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, chosenists, Marxists, etc. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established, legally, in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states...Then we will be fully politically awake and ready to continue evolving.

Here is the best I've seen to date on the origin of the races

from “The Races of Humanity” by Richard McCulloch, revised August, 2019  

http://www.racialcompact.com/racesofhumanity.html

It is generally agreed that there were at least three major migrations or expansions of the genus Homo out of east Africa into Eurasia, either crossing the Sinai peninsula from Egypt into the Levant (the coast of what is now Israel, Lebanon and Syria), or crossing the southern entrance of the Red Sea (the Bab el Mandeb) from Djibouti in Africa to Yemen in Asia, from where they spread throughout most of Eurasia and developed into a variety of regional "archaic" human populations. The first of these major expansions out of east Africa into Eurasia was about 1.8 million years ago, the second about 600,000 years ago (associated with the spread of the Acheulean culture), and the last shortly after 100,000 years ago. Beginning in 1987, based on genetic studies showing that the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and the Y-chromosome of all living humans is derived from the last of these major expansions, the common view expressed in the popular press (called "Out-of-Africa") has been that the modern humans of the final migration completely replaced the regional archaic human populations from the first two major expansions. But beginning in 2002 studies of other genes by Alan Templeton and others have increasingly supported the view (called "Out-of-Africa-Again-and-Again") that although all our surviving mtDNA and Y-chromosome lineages as well as the majority of our other genes derive from the most recent expansion, a significant minority of our other genes have much older "coalescence" dates and must therefore derive from the regional archaic human populations of the first two major expansions. These studies indicate that some genes from the regional populations of the first expansion were assimilated and perpetuated by the populations of the second expansion, and that some of the genes of both of the first two (archaic) expansions were assimilated by the modern humans of the final expansion.

The first dispersal of modern humans probably began soon after the emergence of Homo sapiens idaltu in east Africa about 195,000 years ago, with some populations heading west into the tropical forest of the Congo basin where they evolved into the Congoid subspecies (possibly with the assimilation of some local archaic elements), others remaining in east Africa where they evolved into the Capoid or Khoisanid (San-Bushmen) subspecies, and others moving north to the shores of the Red Sea, where they became the progenitors of the population that eventually migrated out of Africa and populated the rest of the world, possibly assimilating some of the regional archaic human populations they encountered in varying degrees, and evolving into the Australoid, Mongoloid and Caucasoid subspecies. By 130,000 years ago there were perhaps 10,000 modern humans living in different populations in different regions of Africa. About 120,000 years ago one of these modern human populations that had expanded up the Nile valley crossed the Sinai peninsula out of Africa into the Levant but got no further, and by 90,000 years ago its members had either returned to Africa or died out.

The following account of the final major expansion out of east Africa into Eurasia, that of the modern humans shortly after 100,000 years ago, is based largely on the work of Stephen Oppenheimer as detailed in his book Out of Eden: The Peopling of the World (2004) which was also the basis for a Discovery Channel documentary titled The Real Eve.

The migrating modern human population, probably numbering only a few hundred people at the beginning, crossed from Africa to Asia at the southern entrance of the Red Sea. From there they followed a beachcombing trek that took them along the coastline of the Arabian Sea. The descendants of this population gradually expanded and dispersed, with the initial expansion being along the southern coast of Asia. The where and when of these early human migrations was largely determined by geography, especially changes in climate and sea level. The first main split or division in the expansion occurred on the Iranian coast of the Persian Gulf, with some groups continuing to move east while others remained in southern Iran between the Zagros Mountains and the sea. The second main branching or division probably occurred in southeast Asia, with one group continuing to move eastward, reaching China by 68,000 years ago, and another group remaining in the Burma-Thailand region where it evolved into a proto-Australoid population and then expanded south through Malaysia and Indonesia, reaching New Guinea by 77,000 years ago and Australia by 65,000 years ago.

The eruption, or explosion, of the Toba super-volcano in northern Sumatra circa 74,000 years ago, the largest such explosion in the last two million years, perhaps 100 times larger than the Krakatoa event off southern Sumatra in 1883, covered the entire Indian sub-continent in several meters of ash, probably destroying almost all life, including the early human population in the area. The populations to the east and south of the eruption were spared its catastrophic effects, but the population in southern Iran, and to a lesser extent the population in east Africa, probably suffered severe climate effects. The population in west Africa, protected by mountains to the east, was not as seriously effected. Within a few thousand years India was repopulated from the east by proto-Australoids.

By 50,000 years ago the population that had remained in southern Iran had evolved into proto-Caucasoids and began to expand -- to the east into Pakistan and northern India; to the northwest up the Tigris-Euphrates valley to the Levant by 45,000 years ago; and to the northeast through Central Asia to Russia and the steppes of western Siberia, also by 45,000 years ago. From the Levant they expanded north into Anatolia, from there entering Europe through the Balkans and spreading the Aurignacian culture across southern Europe by 43,000 years ago. From Russia they moved westward into Europe, spreading the Gravettian culture, about 33,500 years ago. Shortly after this another Caucasoid group expanded from the Levant across North Africa. In this same time frame the population in Indochina and southern China had evolved into proto-Mongoloids and expanded northwards into the steppes of eastern Siberia, branching into southern and northern Mongoloid groups. Some northern Mongoloids migrated northeast to Berengia, a vast land between Siberia and Alaska that is now underwater, from where they subsequently moved south into the Americas.

By 30,000 years ago the divergent evolutionary branching or dividing of the human species had produced five main lines or subspecies which are still extant -- the Congoid of West Africa; the Capoid of East and South Africa (later replaced in East Africa by the Congoid); the Australoid of India, Burma, Malaya, Indonesia, New Guinea and Australia; the Mongoloid of East Asia (later expanding to the southwest into Burma, Malaya and Indonesia, largely replacing the indigenous Australoids) and the Caucasoid of Europe, North Africa and West Asia (partly replacing the Mongoloids in the Americas after A.D. 1492 and the Australoids in Australia after A.D. 1788). These subspecies branched or divided in turn into separate races, and these races branched in their turn into subraces, as part of the continuing process of divergent evolution.

Beginning about 20,000 years ago, when the global human population was perhaps a million, the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) pushed the population of northern Europe south to refuge areas in southern France, northern Spain, the Balkans and Ukraine, while the now fully-developed northern Mongoloid population in Siberia was also forced south to eastern and southern China. Both populations were greatly reduced in number during this period. (The expansion of the southern Mongoloids into Malaya and Indonesia, partly replacing and partly assimilating the native Australoids, probably occurred during this period.) When the Last Glacial Maximum began to recede about 15,000 years ago (13,000 B.C.) the survivors of these populations expanded northward again from their refuge areas, with Scandinavia being occupied by humans for the first time about 10,000 years ago, by which time the global human population had risen to about 10 million. Agriculture and the Neolithic period also began about 10,000 years ago in both the Middle East and China. The genetic ancestry of the native European population as a whole is about 80% from the original Upper Paleolithic inhabitants who survived the 5,000 years of the Last Glacial Maximum in southern refuge areas and then re-expanded and repopulated the central and northern regions of the continent, and 20% from the Neolithic farmers who expanded from Anatolia into Europe starting about 8,000 years ago, with the latter element concentrated primarily in the Mediterranean lands of southern Europe, indicating that the initial spread of agriculture into central and northern Europe was a process of cultural diffusion rather than a movement of people.

The different races are often popularly defined and named (often inaccurately) by skin color, but as this system is based on only one genetic phenotypic difference, when hundreds are involved, it tends to distort the reality of race and racial differences. In the system of racial classification outlined below the names assigned to the various subspecies and races are, with a few exceptions, based on geographical regions where they are the native type.

Thoughts on the natural instinct toward religion and art ­(from the archive)

If the “classical” can be seen as not only ideal but scientific, relating to evolving material objects, and if the “romantic” can be seen as aesthetic and holistic, then theological materialism leans in the direction of the classical world, but it soars toward the romantic beauty of life evolving toward Godhood.

Romanticism was, among other things, a revolt against the constraining rationalism of the scientific Enlightenment, but then romanticism constrained rationalism too much, which was understandable because science tends to think something does not exist until it is proven to exist.

But we seem to need it all, intuition, religion, reason, science, art, because the truth and reality are found somewhere in the mix of these fields. We seem to have an instinct or a need to know what goodness, truth and beauty are, but more than to know, we need to experience these things, somehow physically.

With this instinct we create worldviews that affirm goodness, truth and beauty, and we want them to be real, we believe they are real. Why do we do this? Why do we need this? We seem to sense instinctively that the goal of our life goes beyond what we are. It is then that we begin to see the goal of our instincts as leading to Godhood, which also defines for us the zenith of goodness, truth and beauty, which we seem to both mentally and physically desire---this is seen in our preferences for beautiful people, places and things. We bring this romantic vision back to classical physical reality, back to nature, when Godhood is understood also as supreme success in natural survival.

We create a religious/philosophical narrative as a system of images and ideas useful in our instinctive transformation toward Godhood, that is, the sacred narrative of our material/supermaterial evolution to Godhood. It is a transformation away from the nihilism and hedonism of the secular age, but this time it is a naturalistic sacred narrative, related to the successful survival of life and beauty, not merely as an opiate of the people. It is real.

This religious narrative, or instinct, satisfies our natural instinct toward religion and art, and what seems to be an inborn, and sacred, desire to know and experience, goodness, truth, beauty and Godhood.

Are we one united people? No

Do we still meet in any way the designation and description of us as the "one united people" that John Jay rendered in The Federalist Papers: Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs." (Patrick J. Buchanan)

Multi-ethnic societies are a zero sum game where the gain of one ethnic group is offset by the loss of another ethnic group, with much cruel social discord in the process. Reason and common sense suggest that real human nature, which remains ethnocentric and kin-centered, leads naturally to regionalism, localism, and eventually to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Decentralization into small separate ethnostates, with their independence protected by a defensive federalism is the best political and moral solution to this serious political problem of being ununited. 

An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established in America largely within the traditional American cultural framework of our separation of powers and states. We need to honor the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red. That is political morality in harmony with real human nature and human nature in harmony with political morality.

We are going to have to face the reality that the IQ's of different races are different

We are going to have to face the reality that the IQ's of different races are different and genetically derived as well as being environmentally caused, and we have to think of this reality as being just differences rather than inferior/superior. When we admit this then we will have a chance to try to create a realistic way out of our increasing race problems.

In 1917 soldiers drafted into the Army were tested for intelligence, and “it was found that the black average was 83 compared to the white average of 100. This result has been confirmed in many hundreds of later studies, with black-white IQ differences typically between 15 and 17 points.” (American Renaissance, June 2010)... “So why has the gap not been reduced...with the achievement of higher living standards, better health care, integrated schooling, full civil rights, and affirmative action for blacks?...Perhaps Professors Rushton and Jensen may have underestimated the genetic contribution to the black-white IQ gap when they put it at 80 percent.?”

jenab6 of the live journal wrote of how “the United States is a First World country in which most of the best jobs are mentally challenging jobs, purely free-market hiring practices will exclude a demographically disproportionately high fraction of low-average-IQ races from those jobs... A focus on merit is a good thing. It is in conflict with diversity and inclusion. Therefore, diversity and inclusion are bad ideas, and to focus on them, instead of on merit, is harmful.”

The best moral political solution to our racial problems I can see is to develop small separate states, or ethnostates where the races can be proud of their differences, with their independence protected by a defensive federalism. We need to honor the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established in America largely within the traditional American cultural framework of our separation of powers and states. That is political morality in harmony with real human nature which remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection.

Evolutionary conservatism defines survival and reproductive success in evolution as the prime element of conservatism

Evolutionary conservatism defines survival and reproductive success in evolution as the prime element of conservatism, as defined by the science of sociobiology and the biological origin of social behavior. That is, maintaining and handing on the gene pool and the conserving the ethnic groups which largely create the ancient traditions, while affirming that the expressions of the genes are continually developing, embodied in new improved ways, all the way to materially evolving to ascending levels of real Godhood.

Conservatism will need to stretch quite a bit, but that is better than dying. Evolutionary conservatism conserves conservatism, religion, and God in perhaps the best way that they can include ongoing science. God, religion, and cultural traditions can harmonize with the biological origin of social behavior. Most importantly we conserve the gene pool and the ethnic groups which largely create the traditions as we evolve, we maintain an ancient script by embodying it in new ways.

As I've said before, as an evolutionary conservative I prefer to build on the past rather than destroy it. I did not erect theological materialism on the ruins of Christianity, as modern thinkers did with science and the humanities, I wanted to renew the building, not tear it down. This rebirth is seen in the Twofold Path where the God-Within, the Father-Within, is seen as the first glimpse, or the mirror of the real Godhood reached through  ascending levels of material and supermaterial evolution.

The biological origin of social behavior, and kin and ethnic centered human nature, lead naturally to regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by some sort of defensive federalism. All groups can then get on with the natural business of our evolution to real Godhood, aided by the religious philosophy of theological materialism.

Real leadership is moral leadership: Political morality in harmony with real human nature and human nature in harmony with political morality

I think it was a Marine Corps defense leader who said that morality is the main source of real leadership decisions. Real leadership is moral leadership. "Style" comes in how you present your moral decisions. That applies to the leader of a Marine Corps platoon all the way to the president. Maybe its inherent, or best instilled early in life.

Traditionally, religion, culture, and education helped develop the morality with which leaders would later make decisions. But we have been dominated by postmodernism in our cultural institutions which teach a relativity of all values. Demagogues tend to be all show seeking selfish power by simulating morality.

We now have libertarian capitalists and non-judgmental progressive liberals as leaders, and both have no real morality other than believing in a relativity of values, therefore they offer no real moral leadership. The moral relativity of so-called high-culture elites is copied by the moral relativity of pop culture, and then promoted by a powerful and corrupt Media, which has its own selfish agenda.

Unlike many conservatives I don't see the individualism of libertarianism as the best way to counter the hedonism and the degeneracy of all standards in the West. Ethics and morals have always been created by the group ethics of mutual love and self-sacrifice, not by individualism. Human nature has been and remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection.

Decentralization is the best moral political solution I see, small separate states, or ethnostates, with their independence protected by a defensive federalism. Powerful men as well as the unpowerful need to see that it is in their own best interest to support and protect a decentralized world where hedonism and the degeneracy of all standards can be better prevented.

An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established in America largely within the traditional American cultural framework of our separation of powers and states. We need to honor the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red. That is political morality in harmony with real human nature and human nature in harmony with political morality.

Evolutionary conservatism and the religious philosophy of theological materialism and the political philosophy of ethnostatism

Evolutionary conservatism believes the changes and innovations it makes in religion, politics, and culture nevertheless should be applied as much as possible to the traditional conservative view of life.

The biggest and most important change is the emphasis on the biological origin of social behavior, which does give a definition of human nature that largely harmonizes with conservatism: human nature has been and remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection.

The biological origin of social behavior, and kin and ethnic centered human nature, lead naturally to regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by federalism. This suggests the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, in accord with real human nature. Then we will need to protect each ethnostate from the inevitable marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, chosenists, Marxists, etc. The good news of evolutionary conservatism is that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established, legally, in the United States with our existing constitutional separation of powers and states. This is the way we can avoid radical revolution and yet adapt to the increasingly combative racial and cultural differences in America.

We have been having a gradual takeover of religion by science since the Enlightenment with a few attempts to synthesize the two by erecting science on the ruins of churches, as the Christian's had built churches on the ruins of pagan temples, but for the most part it was a slow rout by Christianity over the pagans, as well as a slow rout by science over religion.

As an evolutionary conservative I prefer to build on the past rather than destroy it. I did not erect theological materialism on the ruins of Christianity, as modern thinkers did with science and the humanities, I wanted to renew the building, not tear it down. This rebirth is seen in the Twofold Path where the God-Within, the Father-Within, is seen as the first glimpse, or the mirror of the real Godhood reached through  ascending levels of material and supermaterial evolution.

The biological origin of social behavior, and kin and ethnic centered human nature, lead naturally to regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by some sort of federalism. All groups can then get on with the natural business of our evolution to real Godhood, aided by the religious philosophy of theological materialism and the political philosophy of ethnostatism.

Pretentiousness, sublimation, and higher civilization (from the archive)

I have never liked sliding away from the truth in mannerisms, speech and gestures, pretentiousness, phoniness, it always seems somehow weaker... And yet, and yet, I understand that we must sublimate aggression and even the sex drive if we want higher civilization--- those people who cannot sublimate, often remain primitive, violent, and live short lives. We need to evolve far beyond the beast and this often seems to require more than the straight talk and the real behavior that we prefer.

It seems to me that unpretentious people are stronger than pretentious people, just in face to face connections, but it also seems to be true that often unpretentious people are less successful than pretentious people. Pretentious people perhaps have a larger variety of behaviors, roles that they can play, in a complicated society, they sublimate the aggressive instincts. Some just may be inauthentic or bad actors, and pretentiousness seems to be stronger with the striving middle class and less so in the more aristocratic classes. But the skilled worker on weekends with his dogs and his gun acts not unlike the lord of the estate with his dogs and his gun. Also there is no doubt that genetic connections are involved in the ability to sublimate the instincts (see Raymond Cattell's "Beyondism".)

If we let mammalian drives, instincts (ergs), go as they go without sublimation we may end up not moving beyond the primitive level of communication, which may be okay for some roles but not for most roles in higher civilization. We don't want to create opposition between the instincts and intelligence, nevertheless some instincts need to be checked and sublimated, not blocked---sex and aggression are certainly sublimated in the higher religious and aesthetic pursuits...This all adds up to the natural often conflicted behavior of human beings.

That being said, we don't want to move too far away from basic real human nature, and we may not even be able to do so successfully, which includes such good things as kin selection, marriage-making, religious-making, among other things, with group-selection, even ethnocentrism, as the primary unit of selection. I consider the material spirit or will, which activates within material life like a Super-Id, as the zenith of all these instincts, it is leading us to evolve in the material world toward Godhood, shaped by the outside forces of evolution and selection. That is one instinct that is already sublime in its unpretentious primitive state.

How both the black and white power movements have it wrong and how evolutionary conservatism can make it right

What I have called “evolutionary conservatism” affirms the biological origin of social behavior and the sociobiological view of human nature. "The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior...is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact...” (Edward O. Wilson)

Change is reality, but so is retaining the best of the past. That is also the way evolution works. The human body and brain evolved by retaining the fish, reptilian and mammalian brain. That is conservatism in action. Human nature has been and remains genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual-selection.

Both the black power and white power movements have it wrong: the blacks think only whites can be racist when their Black Lives Matter movement is racist, and the white power movement can't move beyond the supremacism that has plagued it. The real challenge of ethnocentric and xenophobic human nature is to move beyond supremacism. This suggest that if noble statesman of the future see the duty of the state as trying to avoid sedition, discord, and civil war, they will honor the biological origin of social behavior by taking on the damaging racial competitions disguised as calls for equality etc., and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all.

Conservatism has found that retaining what was long developed is important to humans and to human survival. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established in America largely within the traditional American cultural framework. We need to honor the biological origin of social behavior and advocate the creation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, in harmony with real human nature. Then we will need to protect each ethnostate from the inevitable marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, chosenists, Marxists, etc. The good news of evolutionary conservatism is that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates could and should be established, legally, in the United States with our existing constitutional separation of powers and states. This is the way we can avoid radical revolution and yet adapt to the increasingly combative racial and cultural differences in America.

Our suicidal ignorance about human nature

Demography really is destiny, not merely with aging trends or population growth but regarding that which must never be spoken: the reality that as the people or race changes the culture and country changes. Both the right and especially the left are suicidally ignorant of or they block knowledge of the biological origin of our social behavior.

The black lives matter movement, which is really a black power movement, charges ahead claiming only whites are racist, and both whites and blacks vigorously deny that they are racist. In reality real human nature is and has been genetically kin and ethnic centered (ie. racist and ethnocentric) since humans became human, with group selection as the main unit of successful survival and reproduction, followed by individual selection.(see the science of sociobiology).

But as one historian put it, what formerly divided us can put us back together again. A true natural rights or civil rights movement would promote ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, chosenites, supremacists, Marxists, etc. All people, all races, need to wake up to the reality that demography really is destiny. Our suicidal ignorance about human nature is destroying us.

“Wonderful theory, wrong species”

It's not that dumb-ass modern liberals (global socialists) and our senile president don't know that open borders and an indiscriminate unending flow of migrants will change America because as the people change the culture changes, it's that the dumb-ass modern liberals don't care if the country or culture changes. And conservatives are not much help because they won't admit the biological origin of our social behavior.

Harvard biologist Edward Wilson said of Marxism: “Wonderful theory, wrong species...The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool.” Dutton said modern liberalism or universalist humanitarianism is ultimately a losing strategy, as it is “unable to sustain high levels of in-group cooperation...Humanitarian groups invariably waste their precious reproductive potential helping out free riders who give them nothing in return...” And Rothbard said, “Behind the honeyed but patently absurd pleas for equality is a ruthless drive for placing themselves (the elite) at the top of a new hierarchy of power.”

Theological materialism religiously bonds with the ongoing advances in human knowledge

I agree with Monika Jablonska when she says that traditional Western values and morals are at the crossroads, and that our country faces social and individual disintegration. And I agree with Russell Kirk when he says that “it has seemed far more probable that we are stumbling into a new Dark Age, inhumane, merciless, a totalist political domination in which the life of spirit and the inquiring intellect will be denounced, harassed, and propagandized against...”

I also agree with Jablonska that we need to “restore that vital relation between religion and culture which has existed at every age and on every level of human development.” But I disagree with Christopher Dawson when he writes that “there is an absolute limit to the progress than can be achieved by the perfectionment of scientific techniques detached from spiritual aims and moral values.” I believe we need to restore that vital relation between religion and culture with a religion of science based in a theological materialism which affirms ascending levels of Godhood reached through material evolution, with religion and culture devoted to that evolutionary process. Nothing less is worthy of religiously bonding with the ongoing advances in human knowledge.

The evolutionary conservatism of theological materialism counters both the stagnation of traditional conservatism and the nihilism of modern thinking. The heart of religion and conservatism should first contain the sacred material upward evolution to ascending levels of Godhood, as well as the conservative effort to conserve the best of the past.

The celebration of garbage with no good guys allowed (from the archive)

The morals and values of our Western culture did not depend solely on Christian values, before religion was even created or consulted real human nature related well to traditional religion in being kin-centered, gender defined, age-grading, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

Not that long ago characters in the entertainment media could be bad, but we wanted well drawn believable bad characters to show us how well drawn good characters were superior. Not any more. Now it's strait decadence and decay for the sake of decadence and decay. Reviewer's now actually criticize characters for being “hemmed in” by invisible moral boundaries, amoral protagonists are celebrated for boldly breaking all the ethical rules.

Some of this celebration of garbage has to do with the lack of courage of nerdy writers to go against fashionable trends, and some may come from a direct desire to destroy traditional morals, but most of it comes for the cultural Marxism (political correctness) taught throughout our college and university systems which allows no moral judgments, other than being against those who make any moral judgments.

The entertainment media is far more powerful and influential in a negative way than many of us thought it could be. Whether this means breaking up the media monopolies or building up our own media along side their monstrous media, remains to be seen. Meanwhile we sink further into the garbage, and no good guys are allowed. How can we change things! I am an American patriot and I don't advocate fascism, but it is becoming easier to understand how the fascists of the last century could scream in frustration over the destructive media in their societies.

Updating Burke's moral imagination and defining natural evolutionary conservatism and romantic realism

Updating Burke's moral imagination in light of the sociobiological definition of human nature and the biological origin of social behavior, we can affirm an evolutionary conservatism and romantic realism basically derived from the genes holding culture on a leash. As Edward O. Wilson said “...the leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact.”

We can then see how evolutionary conservatism derives from human nature being in reality genetically ethnocentric, even xenophobic, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

We can see how romantic realism derives from updating Wilson's idea that morality has no other demonstrable ultimate function than the successful survival and reproduction of the genes and by adding that we are also aided in evolution by an inward, purely physical activation to materially evolve toward ascending levels of Godhood.

We can get out from under the idea of original sin and see that real human nature is good. Our moral imagination can affirm a realistic yet romantic natural rights or civil rights movement that promotes an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups, black, white, brown, yellow, or red, with each ethnostate protected from marauding imperialists, global businesses, supremacists, Marxists, etc. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states. Multicultural multi-ethnic societies are a zero sum game where the gain of one ethnic group is offset by the loss of another ethnic group, with much cruel social discord in the process. Ethnostates are in harmony with the biological origin of social behavior and in accord with real human nature.

This updates Burke's moral imagination and defines natural evolutionary conservatism and romantic realism.
