The divide I see, which of course is rarely talked about because it's politically incorrect, is between groups who are ethnocentric for their own group but don't allow the same ethnocentrism for other groups, and those who are ethnocentric for their own group but allow the same ethnocentrism for other groups. The last mentioned ethnopluralistic group is far smaller in number than the ethno-supremacist group.
Much of this is unconscious in people because they have been thoroughly indoctrinated in the evils of being ethnocentric, even though ethnocentrism is as deeply rooted genetically in human nature as being kin-centered---it was central to our successful survival and so it was carried on genetically in human nature. It seems to me that people have different abilities to be objective about ethnocentrism, which itself may be due to genetic traits.
So there we have the underground or subterranean dynamic of the biological origin of much of our social behavior, which needs to be spoken about, because if we don't come to terms with our inherent ethnocentrism we will have constant civil disturbances and even civil war.
That is why I promote an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which can be adapted from the constitutional decentralizing separation of powers and states. We tend to go that way anyway as empires break down, most recently seen in the Soviet Union in 1991 which returned to its earlier ethnostates, although they now seem to want their empire back.

Combining erotic and ascetic techniques in some branches of the tantra of Hinduism and Buddhism should not surprise us in the West, that is what all the spiritual religions do, one way or another, in their misunderstanding of what god or godhood is.
Sex and reproduction is used and abused at the upper levels of religious practitioners in all the revealed religions, where sex and reproduction are usually blocked and used as a "spiritual" force in order to attain the blissful bodily experience of "God," which is misunderstood as being non-material.
Stealing the force of sex in these practices only leads to a secondary material experience of bliss because sex is itself a secondary reaction to the sacred activation within life (Tirips) to materially evolve toward Godhood within the outside world of natural selection, where sex and reproduction are employed as the real method to evolve toward real Godhood, a goal well beyond the immediate bliss of individual reproduction or sex.
Future species can attain material/supermaterial Godhood and that requires natural sex and reproduction directed toward evolving to Godhood, which now can include eugenics. The material world of evolution is is not evil, it is the only means to attain Godhood....Theological spiritualism can be adapted to theological materialism (not destroyed) in the Twofold Path.

Does forcing Kevin Hart to drop out of hosting the Oscars for past jokes about homosexuals mean that the politically correct gatekeepers prefer homosexuals to blacks? If they aren't careful the gatekeepers are going to lose the blacks, who they formerly used as cannon fodder disguising their own nefarious ends. There are hints of this happening already as more blacks, feeling used by the politically correct liberals, are supporting President Trump.
How are we going to dislodge political correctness (cultural Marxism) when Hollywood, television, the Media, and the schools, have incessantly promoted it, censoring anyone who does not agree with it? Decentralizing these behemoths would be a start, but that is barely even hinted at. They have complete control and dominance over us, and they did not do it honorable in open conflict, they did it stealthily and nefariously.
President Trump has been going against the lying media, almost alone, but the media has gotten worse, no-longer even lying about being evenhanded. Will the entire West have to collapse before healthy change can happen? People are leaving the big cities which have become cesspools of violence and crime. Animosity between the races is increasing faster than ever.
I see decentralization as the best solution, including all categories, decentralization from Hollywood, television, the Media, and the schools, and decentralization of the government itself. That is, decentralization and separation into ethnostates in line with kin and ethnic-centered human nature---the Soviet Union did in 1991. The decentralization and separation needs to be done legally and non-violently or it will be stopped before it begins....Who can predict how and when it will happen, but human nature says it will happen. All humans groups will then have a chance for a future.

Reason is of course good, but it can be as "biased" as the abilities or limitations of Homo sapiens; objective thinking is circumscribed by the same abilities or limitations. So attaining truth depends on the abilities or limitations of Homo sapiens. Scientific instruments, like electronic microscopes or artificial intelligence, can extend human abilities and knowledge, but humans (and future species) will need to materially evolve higher to attain the highest reason and truth.
Human reason alone doesn't represent the transition from the individual to the "universal," as Hegel liked to say. As unique and vital as reason is, the deeper activation to truth and beauty is the constant will or activation (Tirips) to successfully evolve in every life-cell of the body to the highest survival and reproductive success, which is Godhood, where the highest degrees of reasoning and truth can be reached.
But it is not an evolution from the material to the spiritual, it is a material and supermaterial evolution, naturally or materially accomplished (and now perhaps aided by genetic engineering.) So spiritualism can adapt to theological materialism if we are to reach real Godhood.

We have had at least five mass extinctions on earth where we lost almost all life on earth (eg. 85-90 percent), and many smaller extinctions, perhaps usually having to do with great climate change or disasters. It would seem that given this pattern there will be more extinctions to come. Add to that the possibility of life destroying itself with war, greed, or whatever. As some have suggested, if we assume life on other planets would have gone through similar extinctions and destructions, that could help explain why we seem to have not been contacted, at least openly, by extraterrestrial intelligent life. Few if any species would have evolved far enough to escape from their own planetary extinctions or would have had time to evolve space travel.
So we see how difficult it will be to advance the deepest promise of life evolving to Godhood, and how very rare real Godhood is, or will be. But life will always try for it as the zenith of the success of life, because that activation defines what life is in its essence.

The glut of entertainment production companies like Netflix and Prime, and the glut of cable stations like HBO and Showtime, along with the rest of cable stations and the streaming services, and of course the movies at the Malls, have been demanding and producing a glut of low quality films and movie series to fit the huge demand.
It must be that a person with no talent but a desire to cash in on the great need for new material has an uncle in Hollywood who lets them make a movie or TV series. The nephew probably can't recognize how untalented he is and the uncle could care less as he makes the rounds with a Shiksa or would-be actress on his arm looking for more low quality scripts to produce.
How lousy our popular culture has become. And our so-called high culture is a ruined postmodern fraud. I don't really ask for much, I don't demand greatness every evening, just a little escape, so I try many of these films and movie series but I last about ten minutes before I have to get away because the acting, directing, and writing is so groaningly-bad.
So I type things like this instead.
Philosophers and psychologists have continual disputes about the mediation between individualism and socialization but few see the science and art of sociobiology as the key to the mediation. Instead they get lost in fastidious displays of learning. Most of science has distanced us from the self within the folds of cold objectivism, and religion has distanced us from reality with a fantasy-non-materialism as the goal of life.
The science and art of sociobiology mediates between individualism and socialization realistically. As E. O. Wilson put it "Within groups, selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals....Hereditary altruists form groups so cooperative and well-organized as to out-compete non-altruists groups.” That concisely explains the mediation between individualism and socialization. Group-selection is the primary unit of successful selection, followed or tracked by individual selection.
But we don't need to lose either religion or science. Sociobiology suggests that real kin and ethnic-centered human nature leads naturally to the social expression of regionalism, localism, and politically leads toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, if we have the courage to admit it. Given who we are this appears to be the best way we all can optimize the gene expression we inherited from our human ancestors.
Then to ground this worldview as deeply as possible we need a religious philosophy to express the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood, which is seen in the philosophy of theological materialism.

Perhaps optimism about the future is inherent in humans because being pessimistic dampens energy needed to survive in a difficult world. Then too there are always those who think they benefit culturally and genetically by blocking or slandering warnings about coming social disorder.
We have been warned for years by people who were deemed undesirable outsiders that as the people change the culture changes, and that is happening in America and in Europe. Europeans and Americans are becoming a minority in their own lands as a result of open immigration and also due to the march through the cultural institutions by minorities, who are soon to be majorities.
It's an unheeded rule of human nature that cultures change, no matter what the environment, according to the genetic traits of those who create or dominate the culture. And that bumps up against what seems like another rule that people don't heed the warnings until social disaster actually happens which causes them to change, due to both that optimism mentioned above and due to the slandering by the Big Media, etc. against those who warn us of the coming social disorder.
So why warn if the warnings aren't heeded? Why not wait until the reaction inevitably takes place? I suppose warnings help us be more prepared for how we might deal with the future. For example, distinctly different ethnic groups create distinctly different cultures wherever they settle, even in multicultural societies, which usually break up into ethnic enclaves. So we can prepare for that by advocating and planning for an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, for everyone. That can bring as much social harmony as is possible for human beings, if the ethnostates are protected from marauding imperialists and globalists.

The great difficulty of figuring out what to do about racial discrimination is that it does take place but it does so as a result of human nature actually being kin and ethnic-centered, and becoming so genetically because ethnocentrism was the most successful way for individuals within groups to survive and reproduce successfully in a very difficult and competitive world. That same human nature is still solidly with us in our gene pools today, and so we have racial discrimination, although it has become politically incorrect to mention it.
Ironically ethnocentrism was at the origin of the altruism (being for others) promoted in religion and social philosophies, but that altruism was hypertrophied into a universalism that is not in harmony with its genetic kin and ethnic-centered origin, therefore the attempts to stop all racial discrimination have not been successful.
It was the outcast historian Wilmot Robertson who made the succinct suggestion that it was time to try to turn the socially destructive forces of racial discrimination into socially constructive forces, by forming ourselves into ethnostates. That is the realistic way to look at it: as solving the socially destructive problem of racial discrimination, given that human nature remains kin and ethnic-centered.
Look to who benefits most from promoting an unworkable universalism which jam-packs distinctly different people together in the same space and demands universal equality from them, which does not take place and ends up causing social disruptions, while blocking a natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates from forming.
For the sake of social harmony, let's have some courage and finally admit this reality.

The term "great politics" has scared our thinkers since World War Two, although they do face the damaging wrath of the guardians of political correctness if they stray from the global party line. A great politics is not only desirable it is rational, humane, and moral; but is opposite the centralization of the fascists, communists, trendy leftists, and global corporations.
We can have great politics when we decentralize into an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with real kin-centered and ethnocentric human nature, and then guard and protect the ethnostates from marauding imperial centralists---in the U. S. the constitutional separation of powers and states could adjust to it.
It is affirming the biological origin of most of our social behavior that will lead to great politics. It means going against the elite globalists who are the ones who benefit most from promoting no borders and multiculturalism, which really doesn't work because it has little or no resemblance to what human beings are or how they actually behave; but of course the globalist's could care less as long as they get theirs, or ours.
The difficulty is, great politics probably requires great leaders, and they are rare.
I chose the politics of Pat Buchanan over George H. W. Bush's politics, but the thing I liked about Bush was his personal conviction that real leadership is moral leadership. That applies to the leader of a Marine Corps platoon to the president. President Trump, who affirms most of Buchanan's political philosophy, could use the George H. W. Bush creed of moral leadership...But maybe it's inherent, or instilled early in life.

We can retain traditional religion, politics, and culture as we conservatively turn them back on their material feet after standing on their spiritual head for too long
I believe we can and should retain the old religion, but its entirely non-material spiritual Inward Path to God needs to yield and give precedence to the entirely material and supermaterial Outward Path of evolution to Godhood, that is the conservative way to be able to retain dying religion in the future. The Traditionalist School of Guenon, Evola and now Dugin do the opposite and downgrade modern science and cut material evolution out of religion, supposedly to save religion.
Real Goodness, truth, and beauty are not spiritual or non-material, that is the metaphysical deviation of traditional religion. We evolve in the material world toward progressively higher realms of goodness, truth, and beauty. That is how we give precedence to the entirely material and supermaterial Outward Path of evolution to Godhood, while retaining that first Inward Path definition of a spiritual God, for the sake of conservative change rather than radical change.
Human nature can be obscured but not erased, to change a phrase of Scott Richert. We can corrupt and transvalue human nature but not destroy it. We have corrupted and transvalued religion with spiritualism just as we have corrupted politics and culture in the West with cultural Marxism. But contrary to Nietzsche we can retain traditional religion, politics, and culture as we conservatively change them; theological materialism and the Twofold Path of the projected Theoevolutionary Church can turn them back on their material feet after standing on their spiritual head for too long.

Psychoanalytic philosopher's do not engage or explain the social as much as they should (Derrida, Lacan, Butler), and their endless verbiage about "individuation" does not correctly engage the social either. So their work is not worth much to me, since human nature is grounded primarily in social group-selection; and the individual is advanced best through altruism toward the group---even individual-selection is advanced within the group with successful group-selection at its heart.
I suspect it is that old desperate fear of the biological drives put forth by the fascists of World War Two which wrongly featured imperialistic supremacy that biased and obfuscated the minds of the postmodern psychoanalytic philosophers, which to me means that they either lacked the courage to overcome their fears, or they are part of the will to power of the globalist elite whose mortal enemy is a completely natural populism, nationalism, and ethnocentrism, which is at the core of human nature---or maybe it's both with them.
So the biological origin of social behavior as studied by sociobiology can clear away the presumptuousness and the weaseling of psychoanalytic philosophers and their chickenshit postmodern followers in the U.S..
What comes then, at least from my perspective, is theological materialism and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, that is, religious and political philosophy in harmony with real human nature and evolution---psychology follows in its wake.
Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Ethnopluralism is, of course, too far ahead of its time, as populist America First was ahead of its time with Pat Buchanan before Donald Trump trumpeted it--although America First is still fighting for its existence against the Republicans, Globalists, Neoconservatives, and the foolish Left.
Ethnopluralism, that is, adapting the constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates will prove more difficult than Trump trying to overcome the globalists---and he is a once in a million personalty. But someone needs to cry out in the wilderness about the coming ethnopluralism of ethnostates and I guess that's us, or me.
Then there is the problem with the far right and far left who are marginal but still stronger than the ethnopluralists. Many in the far right have gone over to the traditionalist school of Guenon, Evola, and the Russian Dugin and embraced a non-populist, religious, imperialist, hierarchy of rule, and have downplayed or even rejected the idea of evolutionary progress. Socialism and cultural Marxism on the left, although complete nonsense, are far stronger than the far right and have the corrupt Big Media on there side, so they are a big dragon to tame.
Real human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered and ethnocentric, and in our crowded world the closest we will ever come to social/political harmony is when we provide each distinctive ethnic group or race its own ethnostate and develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists by some form of mainly protective federalism. And the more we can hang on to and adapt conservative traditions the better, such as, in the U. S. adapting the constitutional separation of powers and states to ethnostates.

It is not "the imposition of culture on the body" (Eliot Jurist) it is the imposition of the body on culture that takes place in reality, but the word "imposition" is too negative since the biological origin of social behavior is the actual natural pattern of human nature.
We are biologically and genetically 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. Marxist or feminist fantasies can't change this human nature.
Why would anyone want to deny the reality of the body and the biological origin of social behavior? It must be that old will to power working by thinking or at least feeling that if you pervert the idea of human gender and destroy natural biological social behavior you will weaken the people so that you and yours can conquer. And postmodernism which promotes this perversion of reality has conquered in our schools. There also seems to be some sort of revenge or gender hate involved with these Marxists and especially with the radical feminists, perhaps do to bad parenting.
We need to bring men and women and social behavior back to health again after the destruction caused by the Marxist and feminist fabrications; the biological origin of social behavior intellectually and naturally invalidates these perversions due to the fact that "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," as E.O. Wilson put it.

Paranoid movers and shakers on the left, among neoconservatives, and in the Big Media used the civil rights movement and are now using illegal immigrants on our Mexican border as expendable cannon fodder. These paranoid's feel, but never say of course, that if they can secure the will to power of blacks, illegal immigrants, transgenders, etc. etc. against traditional American culture, or against the deplorable white majority, then the majority will never threaten them or their power structure. They will use photos of women and children facing tear gas on our borders, or apply all manner of lies in the Big Media to manipulate public opinion, and they do it mainly so that they, the paranoids, will never again feel threatened. The fake sympathy and the lies are a nasty treacherous business which is in fact destroying traditional American culture. The Founders did not envisioned the destructive power and control of the Big Media by paranoids, if they had they would have found a way to limit their power.

Americans were not asked if they wished to sacrifice their lives to globalism, that is not the way the nefarious globalists operate. The globalist's provided much of the money to allow foreign producers to flood the American market with very cheap products designed to ruin American producers.
Very slowly, too slowly, Americans woke up to the great globalist scam and elected Donald Trump president because he spoke the populist-nationalist language of America First against globalism. And for doing that the entire controlled Media declared that Trump and his populist followers were simply racist.
It's not at all over yet, socialism, which is just another form of globalism, is rising again against populist-nationalism, financed in part by one of the chief globalist businessman, George Soros. The socialists we see around college campuses present a loud mouth and even violent form of globalism, which the populist-nationalist's weren't prepared for.
So globalism with its various nefarious promoters rolls on, holding most of the money, endlessly seeking to destroy Trump and populist-nationalism in America---and Europe is also rising against the globalists. The Alt-Right in America entered the fray for at time and were willing to organize demonstrations against the loud mouth and violent globalists. But the Alt Right was soon more or less suppressed for joining with the West-hating Russian nationalist/imperialist Aleksandr Dugin.
Who really knows where we will go from here, but real human nature will have its way, and real human nature is on the side of the biological origin of our social behavior, which actually ends the intellectual defense of globalism. Human nature leads naturally to the cultural expression of decentralism, regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all racial and ethnic groups, protected from imperial marauders by some sort of lighter federalism. That will come I believe, one way or another.

The "id" of Freud not only limits the definition of the "unconscious" it distorts it and shrinks it down to the flow of the libido or sexuality. Sex is a subsidiary or secondary drive beholden to a hierarchy of the drives to survival and reproductive success, the will to power, the will to pleasure or happiness, and finally the real source of all those subsidiary drives: the will to Godhood, or Tirips, which is the sacred goal of all those drives of the unconscious, and the zenith of survival and reproductive success.
So when psychoanalytic treatment seeks to help the patient gain access to the unconscious by unblocking or understanding the "repression" of sexuality, that limits and distorts the unconscious, and leaves the patient de-centered from the deeper and more vital drives of the unconscious mentioned above; it severs or uncouples people and cultures from the deeper needs of real human nature.
The unconscious is grounded in every cell and perception of body by the will to Godhood which drives and gives purpose to survival and reproductive success, the will to power, and the will to pleasure or happiness. It is all a material process and ultimately a supermaterial process working within the ups and downs and strictures of outside or environmental natural selection and evolution.
This is how the deeper and more vital drives of the unconscious are re-centered after being severed or uncoupled, and brought in harmony with 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. This brings us to the religious philosophy of theological materialism, and to the call for a new evolutionary therapy.

What we have now in the West in general is the decline of morals and values, that is, the decline of religion, the rise of amoral or non-moral science, the rise of global imperial corporations, and the attempt to replace lost values and morals with cultural Marxism. Is there a healthy way out of the decline and decadence which has attempted to run away from real human nature and nature itself?
The cunning Freud tried to replace the id with the ego, altering Nietzsche's will-to-power (which was a kind of id) with Freud's ego and sexuality. Unconsciousness is not the evil "other," it is an auxiliary biological source, aiding (ideally) the activation within life to evolve in the material world toward supermaterial Godhood, which works along with and adapts to outside natural selection and evolution. The "other" is simply someone or something that is not you or your larger group. That re-centers the individual after flying away on the wings of cultural hot air.
The psyche is unified by expanding rather than changing or not accepting the will-to-power, which is really the will to Godhood (or Tirips), adding a sacred goal to Nietzsche's relativistic will that doesn't reject material life or favor spiritual non-materialism. Tirips is the foundation and purpose behind the drive to successful survival and reproduction and is also deeper than happiness as the sole goal of life---happiness is only the tricky reward for deeper needs satisfied.
This adds the realization that the material biological origin of social behavior was evolved to link with or bond to related genetic pools and reveals the impossibility of a unified or universal humanity loving everyone equally. The best we can do is affirm real human nature as being kin and ethnic-centered, gender defined, 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. Then all of us universally---ideally globally---can develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialism by a light federalism, or some version of it.
That better defines a healthy psychic behavior and social reality, and adds a real material sacredness to life.

Anthony Esolen had an excellent piece in Chronicles (Oct 2018) about envy saying "only abasement will satisfy the envious." Esolen is too civilized to also suggest that minorities often envy or hate majorities for their talents and their physical looks and that can often be seen beneath the surface of civil rights movements and such social engineering as Affirmative Action, which throw merit out the window replacing it with racial quotas---and overall quality therefore declines.
Esolen reminds us that Nietzsche saw envious "ressentiment" behind the valuations of the Old and New Testament, but being a traditional Christian Esolen doesn't quite agree with that. But the religious (and Marxists), having the same will to power as every other living thing, disguise envy by promoting ideas that go against the evils of power to weaken others (often not aware they are doing it) and thereby gain power for their own cause.
I don't know what can stop envy, it seems to be inherent, especially in weaker people, and could even be explained as a part of the natural ongoing competition between individuals and groups. But I believe that some of the worst kind of envy happens between distinctively different ethnic groups and could be largely remedied by the healthy separations of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
With the holidays on us I am hoping I can somehow overlook the envy, resentment, etc. that happens even in the best families---but visiting may be reduced a bit.

The transformation of the spirit, the id, and the ego, by Tirips, which is the activation within material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood in the material world while adjusting or adapting to natural selection and the outside environment, defines the foundation of a transformed psychology, religion and philosophy.
This centers the decentered "agency" of postmodern philosophy which has been biased regarding biology and the biological origin of social behavior. An evolutionary psychology derives from that centering of the decentered, and sees a balancing of determinism and freedom.
Biology answers the philosophical/religious confusion about being-for-self and being-for-others, and defines the real origin of the altruism or being-for-others contained in most social philosophies as the preference for group-selection in successful societies, which is only secondarily aided by individual selection within groups.
This brings psychology, religion (theological materialism) and philosophy and even science back to biology, if science can ever affirm internal direction within evolution working along with natural selection and the outside environment, without affirming or advocating a much feared marauding imperial fascism. This recentering can politically affirm an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all distinctive groups, in harmony with real kin-centered and ethnocentric human nature...Art then follows this mapping of a grand synthesis.

The mix of feelings about president Trump by caste or class, assuming that caste or class can still be more or less defined: the lowest classes and uppermost classes don't seem to be as much bothered by president Trump's personality style as the middle-class is, they are even amused by his antics, and they like what Trump has accomplished politically and economically, while the middle-class (and suburban women) being punctilious and rather snobby simply reject Trump for being vulgar. Conservative's can be concerned with virtuous behavior like the middles (someone has to be concerned) but for the most part conservative's approve of Trump for what he is accomplishing politically and economically. Neoconservative's are only concerned with their own special interests (globalism and Zionism) and judge everyone and everything according to that standard. The business class, especially the globalists, care only about money and how best to secure it and, like the neoconservatives, judge Trump and everyone and everything according to that standard. The cultural Marxists (or modern liberals) learned or were brainwashed in Marxism and radical feminism in college, so for the most part the college educated of all classes hate president Trump who is obviously no Marxist or feminist. The ethnic minorities, who soon won't be a minority, judge everything by race (whites do too but less so), even though they constantly hurl the charge of racism at whites, and they vote only by race with few exceptions......What a harmonious culture we have!

The biological origin of our social behavior includes or should include philosophy, but philosopher's seem afraid of it
We can't reject rationalism any more than we can reject empiricism or experience in finding the truth, we need all the help we can get. And both religion and science are useful in the quest for truth.
The biological origin of our social behavior includes or should include philosophy, but philosopher's seem afraid of it. Even the courageous Nietzsche ended up affirming individualism and even narcissism because he did not seem to see the biological origin of altruism or being-for-others which he hated.
The individual was and is best advanced in group-selection, which is the origin of altruism. As sociobiologist E.O. Wilson wrote, “Hereditary altruists form groups so cooperative and well-organized as to out-compete non-altruists groups.” Then individual selection usually moves toward excellence within the bonded group. I suppose World War Two scared many postmodern philosophers away from the genetic base of social behavior, but it need not have.
Rationality, empiricism, religion, and science, can bring us to the theological materialism written about here, as well as a few other odds and ends, including intuition and art.
The kin-centered and ethnocentric universal nature of basic human nature grounded in the biological origin of our social behavior suggests an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where distinctively different ethnic groups can survive and flourish being who they are, in their own skin. Who would object to that, unless you want total imperial dominance of one group over all the others, which in our crowded world usually ends up bonding all groups together for a time to destroy the arrogant marauding group. It gets more complicated when the imperial-minded group takes over the social institutions from within, but the same biological origin of their social behavior applies.

In the midterm election Beto O’Rourke and Andrew Gillum were defeated, Stacey Abrams was also defeated but so far has not conceded, claiming corruption on the part of her opponent, and Gillum hasn't fully conceded either. That is not the way democracy is supposed to work.
As politically incorrect as it is to say, democracy now does not function well in the U. S. largely do to the U.S. being a multicultural-multi-ethnic society derived from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, meaning that people are not the same and not at all "equal" in the ways that they operate within a democracy. It seems that the Northern Hemisphere was able to make democracy work, at least for a time, but not so much the Southern Hemisphere.
But hemisphere's don't rule, people do, and not all people are the same, which means that not all people are equal. For democracy to function fairly, equality must be present in the individual vote, and also, as Socrates said, perhaps only those who had thought about issues rationally and deeply should be let near a vote.
The ancient Greeks feared above all that democracy turns into demagoguery, gaining power and popularity by arousing the emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people, and demagoguery, aided by the Big Media, is what democracy has turned into in the U. S.
This corruption of democracy only underlines what I say here all the time, to save the U.S. we will eventually need to create an ethnopluralism of ethnostates adapted from the existing Constitutional separation of powers and states. Then people can be what they are, emotionally or rationally, in their own ethnostates and regions, protected by a light federalism.

Normal, sane, people in the U.S. have been way too tolerant of the agitator's on the left, given that the worldview or political philosophy of the left it total bullshit. The fact that this flim flam is taught in our schools from kindergarten to grad school and is promoted by the corrupt media doesn't change the fact that it is total bull. Much of the fear of doing anything to stop the arrogant leftists comes from the fear of being labeled a bigot or a racist and therefore socially destroyed.
Human beings and human nature is not any of the things that the cultural Marxists, the politically correct, or the radical feminists tell us it is. Human beings and human nature are 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 selection followed by individual selection, and that is about the exact opposite of what the fools on the left tell us it is. But they wont listen, they won't learn, which shows you how successful the schools and the media have been with their propaganda.
The supporters of President Trump are called ignorant fools by virtually the entire media and by people like the arrogant fool Hillary Clinton, but it is the Trumper's who have the simple, rational, and true view of human nature, listed above, which harmonizes well with the political philosophy of conservatism. Most of us would like to see the leftist fools and agitators simply told to "shut the f---- up," since they won't listen to reason. The hopelessness of changing the brainwashed fools is compounded by the racial/ethnic competition going on beneath the surface of the agitations. So what does this mean, civil war?!
In a school yard fight wiser teachers don't stand there and and try to reason with the battlers, they separate them, which is the only way to cool things down, and that in a nutshell is what needs to be done politically. Wiser conservatives know that the way to have long-term peace and harmony, given the hopelessness of changing brainwashed fools, and given the largely ethnic nature of the battles, is to separate the battlers and create an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which in the U.S. could be adapted from the existing Constitutional separation of powers and states.

The establishment or elite in the U. S. consists of Congress, the Judiciary, the Civil Service, Academia, the Big Media, etc. but holding power over the elite are the Global Corporations and their lobbies. The greatest influence dealers in Washington are the Wall Street lobby, the fossil fuel lobby, and the Israeli and Saudi lobbyists, who often pay off and threaten corrupt government officials and representatives to get them to take actions that are completely against the interests of our nation. Populism has been rising in America and in Europe to oppose this corrupt elite who have become so arrogant in their power that they no longer even try to help or advance the people.
Within this configuration of differences is the ethnic and racial competition which the elite do not allow to be named, they have deemed it politically incorrect to even mention it. But the biological origin of social behavior is the real driver of both the elite and the populists. The real task is to find a realistic way to accommodate these competing forces that doesn't involve civil war.
The rising populism must not become a communist dictatorship on the left or a fascist dictatorship on the right as it sometimes appears to be doing; the time of having only one imperial power and only one noble or chosen people has past, we are too crowded and ethnically diverse for that to work. Decentralization in general is the way to simplify the cultural swamp, and in particular, developing an ethnopluralism of ethnostates from out if our only nominal constitutional separation of powers and states.
Human nature remains the same. Even the smallest change in our DNA structure, for example, in our immune system, took hundreds of thousands of years (now we have genetic engineering which may be more rapid), but we all remain 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 selection followed by individual selection. Rational, instinctive and humane channeling of human nature and human drives, and education in general, need to move in the direction of developing an ethnopluralism of ethnostates---we want to avoid going there chaotically and violently as we have often done in human history when empires fall.

A limitation of religious and philosophical traditions has included the near absence of the biological origin of social behavior. Psychology has done better with the sociobiological advent of evolutionary psychology, although EP has usually avoided (or the Media has ignored) the more controversial political implications of the biological origin of ethnocentrism and nationalism within real human nature.
We need to honestly affirm our biological and genetic instincts if we wish to be whole and happy. Sublimation of the instincts is desirable but our sublimation's have tended to block them. Nietzsche's will to power and Freud's will to sex needed to better affirm the group over the narcissistic individual; group selection has been the primary unit of selection in successful survival and reproductive and is at the real biological origin of the altruism (being-for-others) seen in religion and politics.
Individual selection takes place within groups and is important in attaining excellence, but groups of altruists are successful over groups of individualists, as E. O. Wilson has pointed out. So those who attack altruism and affirm selfish individualism (Nietzsche more or less, Ayn Rand, etc,) have blocked more than sublimated the biological instincts. Nietzsche didn't "anticipate" Freud's sex drive, Freud adapted Nietzsche's will to power---but then Nietzsche adapted Schopenhauer.
Beneath the power and sex drives is the survival drive, however, beneath the survival drive is the material will within life to evolve in the material world all the way to supermaterial Godhood, which must work within the ebb and flow of outside or environmental natural selection, and it is that activation which needs to be sublimated over all the others.
Sublimating the material activation to Godhood (Tirips)---which also leads to the zenith of survival and reproductive success---engenders a new religious/philosophical ("theological materialism"), psychological ("evolutionary therapy") and political (an "ethnopluralism of ethnostates") perspective that better harmonizes with and sublimates real human nature and nature itself.

Altruism grew directly out of the competition between groups, and what to do about it now (from 2014)
Altruism grew directly out of the competition between groups, with successful groups having more social bonding and cohesion, which passed on those altruistic genes. When the Inward Path to the God Within of the revealed religions affirmed universal altruism it was largely based on not caring much about material things, while seeking the non-material universal Father Within. But this actually discouraged the competitive conditions necessary for altruism. The new “enemy” was the personal but universal desires of the flesh.
A religious way to accommodate natural in-group altruism is needed, and this can be understood in the hierarchy of group values, beginning with ones own group and moving out gradually with lesser altruism to the world and universal humanity. Raymond Cattell's work is helpful on this subject. For example, when the world is threatened then universal altruism more naturally influences human beings, but daily existence naturally keeps altruism at home where it originated and works best.
This suggests “cooperative competition” as an important value, rather than trying to make strangers love one another universally, especially when this call for equality is done in a second hand way, since the call comes from the ascetic religious base of traditional religions which doesn’t really care much about material life. The “universal”can enter in with objective international sociobiological research centers, working along with evolutionary religion, to help guide our evolution toward Godhood. All groups can naturally evolve in their own unique ways, while residing in their own ethnic cultures and states, with real altruism, without trying daily to impose a quixotic universal equality, leading to a global imperialist perspective that doesn’t really work.
Natural evolution works along with the activation from within life (Tirips) toward evolving to Godhood which also is the zenith of successful survival and reproduction. This adds a sacred goal to the theory of a random and goalless Darwinian evolution. The will to Godhood or Tirips is seen as an obstacle which both science and traditional religion oppose. So far anyone who proposes it is called a fool by science, or Satan by religionists (I have been called both).
Natural law creates order between man and nature, but this means we need to know or understand natural law to be in harmony with it. Traditional religion, but also science, need deeper knowledge of the natural world, which has advanced since the time of Aquinas, specifically, knowledge of the natural evolution toward Godhood and its religious implications.
Theological materialism recognizes the supreme principle of evolution in nature and the cosmos, which is that material evolution can take us to the object or objects of supermaterial Godhood. That is a transformation of the inward God first spoken about or identified in traditional religion.
Theological materialism adds the Evolutionary Outward Path of sacred material evolution to the traditional Involutionary Inward Path of traditional religion. This is the Twofold Path of theological materialism and the projected Theoevolutionary Church, which is a conservative transformation while keeping the best of the past.
Communities of humanity will one day be in harmony with the natural law of this supreme principle of the evolution of life toward Godhood. Man's downfall has been moving away from it or never understanding it.

This is the gradation or hierarchy of altruism, from the strongest to the weakest interest in being-for-others : individual, kin, ethnic group, region, state, nation, world, universe, all driven by the biological activation of life to survival and reproductive success, but also driven by the biological activation within life to evolve toward Godhood that must work along with the ups and downs of natural outside evolution. That is the natural sequence of the genetic priorities of real human nature in theological materialism.
When political philosophy synchronizes with this biological origin of our social behavior then we can have the variety and independence of decentralized regions and states or ethnostates with light federal systems protecting all.
When this philosophy is bonded in a religion dedicated to life materially evolving to supermaterial Godhood then we will be approaching a whole, complete, long-lasting, and modern worldview.
But human beings tend to be more a scheming, power-seeking, species than a wise species and long-term religions and philosophies are often blocked or overturned by short-term selfish people, so, of course, work and persistence are needed to bring the natural sequence of genetic altruistic priorities forward out of the various blockades against it.

That little weasel French president Emmanuel Macron made a dig at the nationalism of President Trump at the Veterans Day ceremony in Paris, as well as being a slur at the populist nationalism rising in his own country, which shows how far these betrayers of their own people will go in support of the elite of globalism, who have economically and militarily rampaged across all borders in the world. Stalin and Hitler, who the globalist's compare the nationalists to, would have done the same thing if they hadn't been stopped, so who really are the nationalists?
Globalism and multiculturalism were bogus frauds promoted by both communism and global capitalism, which destroyed nations and borders in order to make a few globalists and weasel hangers on like Macron rich. They will sometimes admit that nationalism means sharing the same culture, history and language but they don't have the balls to admit that nationalism is a process by which nationalities, races and ethnic groups are transferred into political units.
Well, I think these deceivers and swindlers do seem to be going down at the hands of populist nationalism, which will have to try to pick up the pieces of their nations and put them back together again. One hopes one day we will have an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in line with real human nature, for all nations---that will be a global world worth celebrating.

When conservatives talk about how cultural Marxism has destroyed us, they usually don't mention that it has also advanced those who promoted cultural Marxism, who were often minorities who used cultural Marxism as their will to power.
It was relatively easy to push the more conservative or at least traditional liberal academics aside because academics often come from a pool of nerds who did well academically but not so well on the rough and tumble playgrounds where many of the cultural Marxist's came from.
Many conservatives don't want to see that the reason this dynamic cultural change has turned into tribalism and racism is not because tribalism and racism are evil but because tribalism and racism are a deep part of real human nature, which we inherited from our hunter/gatherer ancestors.
Human nature is flexible enough to be able to deny its own nature for a time before is pulled back as if on a genetic leash to its inherent ethnocentrism. We see the charge of evil racism hurled by people who are pushing their own racism. Ain't humans something?
This explains the re-dawning of tribalism and racism on the right and the left, and it is suicidal and weak-minded for either side to deny it.

Some writers feel that the first draft is for themselves and the second is for the public, but that can be where style gets in the way of substance or truth. When Baudelaire says, “always be a poet, even in prose” reality can more easily fly away in a glut of metaphors. Personally, in my zeal to be honest I make too many grammatical mistakes.
Personalities work that way too, social personas can get in the way of honesty and courage; carried too far it creates phonies. But social interactions are usually oiled by polite lies, without which people might be at each others throats. And people like to be amused rather than dwell on uncomfortable truths after a hard day in the swamps.
Reality and truth can often be unpleasant, especially if the very base of grammar and style contains lies about reality---many truths were unknown when grammar developed. Science too has its own nerdish style of writing and defining the truth and often misses communications skills. (sociobiologist E. O. Wilson is an exception). And many philosophers sail away from reality on the wings of pedagogery.
I find that courage and truth can appear at any caste or education level, the strait-talking longshoremen or farmer often speak more truths than the PhD. It could be that ones reality and ones style is an inherent character trait.
Very few writers had both great style yet reveal many truths about reality. It's a small group. For me Shakespeare and Nietzsche come to mind.
