Bannon leaving the White House probably indicates the virtual end of Trump populist/nationalism, even though the weakness of Bannon and the Alt-right was their seduction by Alexander Dugin and Putin who plan a new and bigger Russian Empire, grounded in a form of Gnostic traditionalism which at bottom has an ascetic near-hatred of the material world. Trump could still do some good with economic nationalism but he seems now to have all but lost the populist/nationalism he promised to get elected.
Trump should have told his daughter and her husband that he loves them but they need to take a very long hike. He should have picked cabinet members and generals who affirmed his populist/nationalist campaign promises. Why couldn't he do that? The Saudis, Israelis, neocons, the Pentagon, and many in the Deep State intelligence services have conspired to change President Trump, turn him into a neocon, and if he couldn't be changed then remove him from office. Who could stand up to that? Apparently Trump could not.

Ethnocentrism happens naturally as the result of real human nature, but it is also constantly corrupted and destroyed. The primary position in a healing and reasonable political philosophy is that all ethnic groups have the natural right to create and maintain their own ethnic groups, cultures, and ethnostates, but they do not have the right to corrupt or destroy other ethnic groups.
In the USA this can be conservatively and legally, not radically, accomplished by affirming and slightly adapting the existing constitutional separation of powers and states, toward gradually becoming an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which ethnic groups can enjoy or gradually go to. No other political philosophy will harmonize as well with real human nature.
Although nothing is perfect, I am convinced that this is the best way possible for human beings to survive and prosper. Various forms of federalism will need to protect our ethnic groups, cultures, and ethnostates, as will some sort of United Nations. The next healing political philosophy will need to consciously and rationally harmonize with kin-centered, ethnocentric, and nationalistic real human nature or we will destroy ourselves, as we are increasingly doing.

I don't think the "naturalistic fallacy" is a fallacy. The natural state of the world does cohere with the moral state of goodness and health. "Is" does usually mean "ought." If you try to move away from real human nature in the cultures you create it becomes bad because it makes both you and the culture disharmonious with what you actually are and what your genetic traits relate to. If you create a culture designed for parrots it wont work well for humans and it is therefore bad for humans. The task of course is in defining human nature. Science and religion don't always define human nature the same way, which has caused conflicts between them for centuries.
Fortunately there is much knowledge regarding real human nature mainly from the sociobiological sciences descended at least from Darwin to E.O.Wilson, which can also be seen in many human cultural traditions. Here we find that across human history to this day human nature has been kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against real human nature, with such experiments as Marxism, but the culture is always eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature, within the environments humans find themselves living within.
So we ought to create cultures that reflect what human nature really is, and that it is good, and when we do not that is bad. This can be seen and proved as true..If we want to gradually try to change human nature through evolution and culture that is another subject.
I doubt if there has ever been a time in history when so many national leaders were so cowardly and ignorant
Their ignorance enhances their cowardice by making their cowardliness seem virtuous. This cowardice and ignorance clearly shows the great success of brainwashing in the political correctness of cultural Marxism by the Big Media and by all of our schools.
Now we see the heads of big global corporations rejecting President Trump. They lacked the courage earlier to reject the economic nationalism of Trump because he promised them big tax cuts. But they were always against economic nationalism because it would stop their raping and pillaging of American manufacturing as they located their corporations overseas strictly for cheaper labor.
I think of the cowardice and cuckoldry of the 3M executive from the socialist state of Minnesota who now joins his Swedish and German cousins in destroying their own states with fatally destructive immigration and the incessant propaganda of cultural Marxism. These people must be the non-warrior loser descendants of the North. I'm ashamed of them.
Radicals seem to be too naive or too honest to deny real human nature, which remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric and nationalistic, among other traditional things. These basic human traits could be conservatively and legally assimilated in the USA with the constitutional separation of powers and states and by the development of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
But widespread cowardice and ignorance is now closing the door to conservative change leaving only the radical behavior we have seen in Charleston Virginia. It looks like there will soon be laws against openly declaring real human nature. The corrupt elites probably prefer radicals who attempt radical change because they are easier to defeat than conservatives who affirm constitutional and legal change.

I rarely underestimate the level of bias in the Big Media but I have been astonished at the ignorant, brain-washed, lies of Republicans, Senators, heads of political parties, college-educated journalists, all declaring that President Trump is a white supremacist for suggesting that both sides, the right and left, were involved in the violence in Charleston.
What human beings really are is now universally denied as evil. Human nature has been affirmed throughout human history 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.
The utopian universalism of Christianity appears to have softened the West for the political correctness of cultural Marxism, now taught in all our schools, and exploited by groups seeking power. The suicide of the West was suggested by a few courageous conservatives (James Burnham and Patrick Buchanan) and that looks real now.

Our behavior, even our most complicated religion, philosophy, politics, and science are human facades for biological goals, like the face or front of a building. This of course is a sweeping reductionism but it is nevertheless true. And it may be no less true when it is not known by the participants.
The aim for many people, especially the elite, is world power, which is a short-term aim in comparison to the long-term aim of evolving in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, eventually beyond humans and probably beyond the earth. That is the aim of the philosophy of theological materialism, which is not a facade for biological goals but declares the real thing, the whole building of behavior and culture.
The problem is, even long-term thinkers will need power of various kinds to proceed successfully toward the sacred goal, and power does tend to corrupt our leaders. This may be why early Indo-European people discovered by trial and error the tripartite ruling structure of priests, warriors, and commoners (sacral, martial and economic). Shared power discouraged the corruption of power, which enhanced the groups success in survival and reproduction. I would like to think our democratic republic proceeded from that need, although it has been trashed by power and money.
So it is not only power and money that cause the corruption of our sacred goals but when power and money are the highest goals of our leaders. True religion, philosophy, and politics knows this, or should. Unfortunately it is traditional religion which usually blocks material desires and evolutionary biological goals, thinking God is not material but spiritual. This is not rejected but reformed in the Twofold Path of theological materialism, where Godhood---formerly only inwardly and symbolically perceived---is understood as evolved to in the material world, which makes the material world vital in religion.

If the white nationalists in Charleston had centered only on stopping the removal of confederate symbols, and if there had been no mentioned of white supremacy, nothing would have changed, the Big Media and the fascist left would have fomented the violence anyway.
The South should have been allowed to secede. Slavery was soon on the way out anyway and the South would have been stuck with the problem of integrating the blacks they enslaved, which even the North hasn't been able to do.
So we seem to be headed toward a repeat of the battles in the streets between left and right fascists, as happened in Germany before WWII. But this time the corrupt Big Media even more effectively controls the means of communication in the West, and so the fascist left will probably win.
Then it will be illegal in America as it is now in Europe to even mention that real human nature remains kin-centered and ethnocentric.
We need to affirm our constitutional separation of powers and states as they adapt to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, for all of us, in harmony with real human nature. That is where the most important competition will take place. Until that is solved there will be no relative order or peace in Big-Media-Neo-Soviet America.

Bewildered conservatives always react to racial violence on the right or left---such as the recent violence in Charleston Virginia---by declaring that we are all Americans and patriots and we should not identify as race, gender, religion, etc. But that never solves the problem, which has only gotten worse.
It has gotten worse mainly because that definition of patriotism doesn't harmonize with real human nature, which is genetically kin-centered and ethnocentric. Both the left and the right have denied what we actually are as human beings!
In our ignorance (and with some treachery) we allowed huge numbers of immigrants into America who naturally could not assimilate because they were so different from American citizens and they preferred there own people and their own cultures.
Must we have a civil war first, or a fascism on the left that forces us to admit the impossible claim that we are all the same, as the short-lived Soviet Union tried to do? Fascism on the right won't work either, a one-race America is also impossible with the large unassimilating population mix in America today.
There was a brief time when William Buckley had the chance to include ethnic identity as important within the conservative program, but he rejected it, and we ended up with the neoconservative globalists, who have trashed traditional America. Personally I put ethnic identity right back in conservatism as a vital base for conservative order and harmony.
Is it soon time to try using what has been tearing us apart to put us back together again, as the ostracized genius Wilmot Robertson once suggested? Will we ever be wise enough to develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, based on real human nature, which could be adapted from the American constitutional separation of powers and states? I hope this can be at least started before we fall apart completely.

Nations which resist Western (and increasingly Chinese) global business as being advanced troops out to swamp their own nations and cultures, are made out to be criminals and are conquered one way or another.
Empires do that sort of thing, not only business empires but religious and political empires, where some sort of universalism is claimed. Christianity did this, Islam does this, the international communism of Marx did this, and more recently neoconservatism did this too. It must be said that when Christ supposedly said "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations" he was mistaken in his universalism.
The universalism I recognize is the activation within life to materially evolve to supernatural Godhood. Evolution, selection, and human cultures work best in harmony with real human nature which remains kin-centered and ethnocentric, among other traditional things. That strongly suggests variety as well as an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by a limited federalism---it certainly does not suggest nation-and-culture-destroying-empires.
Of coarse, it is the empires that now have the power, but empires always fall do to their own corruption and disharmony, and that would include the Western and now Chinese empires. The Soviet empire already fell, after a very short and cruel life, although Putin seems to be trying to revive another empire.

Someone wrote about the “lost science of the spirit which the greatest philosophers have sought to recapture since time immemorial. ”? Better to stop looking for what is not there. Theological materialism, which transforms the “spiritual” into the supermaterial, is where we find real Gods and Godhood, evolved to very much in the material world and not in a spiritual world that exists only in the symbolic minds and experiences of materialism-blocking ascetics. This is the "revolution" in religion, philosophy, and politics which nevertheless conservatively retains but transforms traditionalism.
In the Twofold Path of the projected Theoevolutionary Church the Inward Path is retained as being the very old ascetic glimpse or experience of what real Godhood may be like when reached in the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood. The projected Mass of Joy, or the Mass of Evolution, for the Outward Path, can be used in conjunction with the traditional Mass of Sacrifice of the Inward Path, although perhaps not at the same event. The Inward Path to the Father Within celebrated in the Christian Mass, and the Sacrifice of Jesus, is seen as one of the first symbolic-experiences, in the West, of the real Godhood which is attained through material and supermaterial evolution in the Outward Path.
It is overdo time for materially-evolving life on the path to Godhood to be recognized not only by science but by religion---and not merely the lesser symbolic non-material spirit.

When in conversation with a liberal even the slightest hint of the conservative worldview and you can watch them blink and close down their minds never to be opened again with any argument. It's amazing and contrary to the stereotypes.
This liberal close-mindedness has increased over the years as the corrupt Big Media has filled the world with fake left-leaning news. Now liberals are moving beyond closed minds and shutting down lectures at colleges and universities, and even taking to the streets to do it. Free speech is not allowed for non-liberals.
Liberals seem to base their world view on the idea that all the problems in the world are caused by not loving everyone in the world equally as you would love your own kin, or by redneck conservatives thinking that all people are not the same. The fact that this cultural Marxism is contrary to everything we know about real human nature is one of the things liberals close their minds to.
Then there is the "divide and rule" tactics of the more underground liberals, and various hostile lobbies, the moles who dig within organizations and then as insiders cause civil war within the organizations---the far-right and far-left keep falling for this, never learning. But now Deep State intelligence organizations are causing the same civil war from within as they try to destroy the Trump administration (and seem to be succeeding).
Empires fall this way. We can hope that real America will still exist when the bogus and corrupt empire falls, that is, the real America of the constitutional separation of powers and states, which one day should become an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, finally in harmony with kin-centered and ethnocentric human nature, protected by a toned-down federalism.
Meanwhile I think I will try to learn to close down to modern liberals the way they close down to conservatives. It will save lost time.

It is diabolical of the Traditionalist School to preach of an occult war, with them as the good-guy-Christ preaching spiritualism, with the bad guys as Lucifer or Ahriman preaching materialism. This needs to be turned upside down to see the truth.
It is the non-material spiritual definition of God---therefore defining nothing---which has blocked the material evolution to real Godhood for so many centuries.
"Dead matter" doesn't chain us down, it is spiritualism that has prevented matter---which is very much alive---from evolving to supermaterial Godhood.
You want "counter-tradition" that is counter-tradition. But it is a counter tradition which knows the importance of real conservative tradition grounded in successful survival and reproduction, as life evolves toward Godhood in the material world.
The spiritual mystics play deadly occult games as life on earth fades away.
The philosophy of theological materialism seeks to end the great mystic war so we can get on with the sacred mission of evolving to real Godhood, with religion and science in tow.
When the far right, far left, or Sharia-believing Muslims radically view their causes as higher than the Constitution or the laws of the land they are not only strategically mistaken but philosophically mistaken.
When seeking change it is not mere strategy or tactics to support the Constitution and the laws of the United States, which are excellent. Real conservatism is not conservative if it closes itself off from change.
The ethnopluralism of ethnostates advocated here is proposed as change or adaptation within the Constitutional separation of powers and states to better harmonize with real human nature, which remains as it has always been, kin-centered and ethnocentric.
This is a conservative undertaking designed to bring us back to what we actually are, and forward to what we can become. We always return to what we are anyway, often after much suffering brought on by arrogant empires, which break up into natural ethnostates, or after radical revolutionaries, who live short lives.

The call would be for a new psychology, or a reinvigorated and deepened evolutionary psychology---I once suggested the term "evolutionary therapy." This time it would be a psychology in accord with the knowledge that virtually all behavioral traits are heritable. This suggests that such fields as psychoanalysis and much of psychological therapy were a dead end, or worse. And pills that relieve symptoms alone are not really enough, although they do make some corporations very rich.
Since behavior is derived mainly from the biological origin of social behavior, this suggests that behavioral changes in genetics will be needed in relieving neurosis. As the writer Jayman recently pointed out, such supposedly culturally-defined healthy activities as exercising more are also the result of genetic traits.
So now the decades old definition of human nature defined by the science of sociobiology as being basically 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, can enter into the field of evolutionary therapy.
Denial of real human nature would be considered psychologically and genetically unhealthy and neurotic. For example, cultural Marxism, which now rules our academic institutions, would be seen as philosophically, psychologically, and genetically damaging to individuals and nations.
Even the bonding effect of religion can be included in the psychology of evolutionary therapy, as the activation toward evolving to real Godhood in the material and supermaterial world becomes our most sacred philosophical, psychological, and genetic goal, making a truly holistic definition of good health.
And of course evolutionary therapy would remain entirely voluntary. I'm not suggesting here Orwell's dystopia.

One of the main reasons why the Alt-right emerged was do to the failure of conservatives to emphasize the heritable traits of the people who create our cultures, which then leads to politics. Conservatives will talk and write about how culture creates politics but they seem to have been cowed by the power of political correctness into not mentioning the biological origin of most of our social behavior. (See the recent essay "The Five Laws of Behavioral Genetics") The Alt-right was almost forced to go radical when they could have been accepted within conservatism.
Beneath culture and politics are the kin-centered people and their ethnic traits which are largely heritable traits---variety and mutations then play upon those traits---stereotypes turn out to be more accurate than inaccurate. To leave this vital genetic foundation out of conservatism is to cut the foundation out of human social action. No wonder the Alt-right became radical. They might not have gone radical if conservatives had been willing or able to see, and say, that real human nature naturally leads toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which could be adapted just a bit in the U.S. from the constitutional separation of powers and states that already exists but is not much followed. That is my kind of conservatism, which I have called Deep-Conservatism. Conservatism contains too much wisdom to abandon, but behavioral genetics needs to be included in conservatism.
But then both radicals and conservatives will need to go deeper to adapt and include the sacred activation of life to evolve in the material world toward supermaterial Godhood. Empires are not sought, an ethnopluralism of protected and evolving ethnostates is sought. The anti-materialism and anti-evolution of Traditionalism, along with the spiritual seductions of Evola and Guenon, and now Dugin, need to be countered with the deep conservatism of evolutionary theological materialism.

The main problem is the leftists and neoconservatives don't know what "our own" means. People on the left as well as the neoconservatives believe that "our own" means the whole world, mainly because they believe that we are all the same and the only differences come from cultural conditioning---although the neoconservatives are really more of a cabal thinking they are a superior elite. Human nature is almost completely malleable to these people and with virtually no input from the biological and genetic foundation of human nature, which they consider to be bad and even evil. Leftists and global corporations are in effect joined in this big lie.
The solution to these lies that help explain why we don't mind our own business is to reverse the lies and define "our business" as being biologically centered, which means we are naturally kin-centered, ethnocentric, populist, nationalistic---that is, human nature is all the things the left and the neoconservatives consider politically incorrect. We could then see that this naturally leads toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, adapted just a bit in the U. S. from the constitutional separation of powers and states that already exists but is not much followed. We would then know how to mind our own business because we would know what our business is.

Does identity rate higher than economics with voters? Poorer people often pick up on identity politics and vote populist/nationalist. The poor have no money and so they don't vote like the economic elite, although the poor do vote for more jobs and better pay. The elite vote internationalist and globalist because that's where their money comes from. But once a poor man becomes rich he then tends to change his vote and votes the way the elite vote to protect his money.
This relates to how Democratic Republics become corrupted by money. "Merit" is defined by money, not by virtue, character, or the identity out of which the culture grew in the first place. Merit is seen as the talent for making money so meritocracies become corrupted by money since money chooses who gets elected.
Culture and identity develop from the genetic traits and the specific environments of the people who originally created the culture. Money corrupts those traditional identities and cultures, which causes them to decline, and so money has to be taken out of politics if we want to maintain our cultures.
But can we take the money out of politics? If it is not done then Ben Franklin's statement following the creation of the Constitution that we have a Republic if we can keep it will have to be answered that we could not keep it. Taking the money out of politics, no-matter how necessary, is a very difficult thing to do and is rarely successful. In modern times money seems necessary to commerce, but it also really does appear to be the root of all evil.

Modern liberals are arrogant, condescending fools who have ruined America. From their socialist and culturally Marxist ideas on economics, their belief that all people are the same, their discrimination used against discrimination ("affirmative action"), their Utopian dreams of globalism---which have been exploited by global business and special interest lobbies with no allegiance to America, their control of our colleges and universities with "postmodernism" which believes that truth and falsity are relative things and interchangeable, their refusal to see climate change as mainly part of the natural cycle of warming and cooling, to the liberal dominance of the Big Media, which now has the power to control the means of communication in America and corrupt all healthy morals and values.
Is there any way back from the destruction of America caused by the modern liberals? The way I see is to have a healthy alternative structure ready to go as the liberal empire falls. As I say here often, the way back seems to be to reverse engineer the modern liberal causes of the fall and bring back the character, tone, and guiding beliefs of the founding ethos, reformed a bit for the time, the place, and the people involved, with regions and states becoming ethnostates, in harmony with real human nature. We can conservatively transform the already existing American constitutional separation of powers and states...This is possible.

On "Morning Joe" this morning Joe and Mika were talking about the lies of President Trump and they were so upset about it all that it made me wonder if they were feeling some kind of unconscious guilt about breaking up there own marriages and becoming engaged to one another. But it did get me thinking about lies in general.
I've always been reluctant to admit the power of lies in human behavior, it seemed too cynical. But many people---at least materially and politically successful people---would call you a fool (if they were honest) to be against making false statements intended to deceive. Many billionaires and people in political power are big liars, and that apparently includes our demagogic President.
If you believe that lies are a sign of weakness, that seems true in the sense that it takes an unusual kind of courage to even find the truth, which is a path practiced mainly by priests, philosophers, and second-in-command military leaders.
If you think that lies bring only short-term power, human history shows that almost every power is short-term power. Religions and philosophies seem to have the longest-term cultural power but they were usually founded by people with no power living in societies ruled by, you guessed it, liars.
So what can people do who don't lie, or who lack the acting talent to lie? (Some of the very best actors are not professional actors.) I suppose you can look for truth-telling friends. And learn patience.

The great mathematician Ramanujan believed that all units emerge from a product between zero and infinity.
I would take that to another thought experiment : Life emerges from two basic units: materialism and the activation or activator of materialism, the body and the activating "spirit" or "will"(Spirit-Will) within the material---and both are material. They then continue to evolve over much time in the material world from one or zero to the highest evolution of Godhood or infinity, which is supermaterial, not "spiritual."
We need to understand these two units, that is, the atoms, the waves and particles, the chemicals, minerals, ect., of the material unit and its underlying activator, which create life. We need to name the elements of these two basic units (which may already be at least named) and how they form and interact. Centering on these two, the material and the activator of the material, at least gives a form and dynamic to the scientific and religious study.
Why call the primitive beginning and unevolved units at the beginning of life God, vital as they are? Godhood is not zero but is perhaps the infinite opposite of zero, evolved to in the material world. God or Godhood doesn't appear to enter into this examination other than as what life is evolving to become as life evolves from zero to infinity.

Are there any completely abstract forces within human nature with no motives at all? Is there a "pure"motiveless ebb and flow ? I don't think there is.
Music may seem like an abstract flow but it contains the emotions or the state of mind of the composer who has many human motives and emotions while living in the world. Even "power" has a motive to attain what it desires.
If the "will-to-life" has no motive or goal then the virtues and values that derive from the will-to-life have no motive or goal and all values are relativistic. This is what the postmodernists and their fathers, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche (who are my favorite thinkers) more or less said.
Religious tradition does give life a goal but the goal is "spiritual" with no material substance, and their God exists beyond or above the material world. Why the depreciation or even hatred of things material?
The will-to-life, which I term the Spirit-Will-to-Godhood, is entirely material and exists perhaps in every cell of the body as the essential activator of "life." This activation within life not only has a motive but has a sacred motive to activate life to evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, which is the ultimate success in survival and reproduction, and is the real Godhood.
It seems as if any motive or sacred goal that philosophers can't control threatens them.

Colin Cleary suggested a few years ago in his essay, "What is Odinism?" (recently republished in Counter Currents, part one) that the key feature of Odin was his quest for knowledge and power. Cleary thinks that Odin and Odinism essentially sought to "become God" in that quest for knowledge and power.
The Christian world has disparaged the idea of becoming God as being highly blasphemous. Traditional religions have demanded that their God be spiritual and certainly beyond the vulgar and evil material world, the desires of the material flesh are to be blocked or overcome in order to see the God Within.
Odin could be called the first Western Faustian man (although he was originally Asian-Aesir) seeking knowledge and power at all costs. But being Faustian, Western knowledge has moved on from Odin to where we can now see that the path to real Godhood is through material evolution.
But conservatism is vitally important in the lives of human beings and human culture, that is, retaining what was long developed as important to humans and to human survival, which is comfortable in the lives of people. The culture of Christianity is virtually baked into Western civilization, but it can be transformed, just as Christianity retained but transformed Odinism and paganism.
The Inward Path to the God Within of Christ (and Buddha) can be retained but can now be seen as the first symbolic experience of the real Godhood reached through the Outward Path of material evolution. This is seen in the Twofold Path of theological materialism.
Faustian knowledge was obtained by standing on the shoulders of many men who not unlike Odin and Christ hung on modern trees of religious and scientific suffering and study. The Twofold Path conservatively does not reject either Odinism or Christianity. We can actually become Gods by affirming the material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, the transformed God of Odin and Christ.
