The Constituency

Some Uncommon Optimism

I see the separate powers of the United States under the original federalism of the Constitution gaining ground as the existing “Leave-Us-Alone” constituencies and the growing influence of the sociobiologists gain ground with both the grass roots and the intellectuals. Michael Greve listed them as a universe of loosely connected, partially overlapping property rights advocates, term limits movement, home school and school choice organizations, right to life groups, gun owners, tax limitation initiatives, certain religious denominations and lay organizations, and small business owners. We would add, along with this Paleoconservatism, the New Right and perhaps even the trendy national anarchists, as well as sociobiologists (or evolutionary psychologists) and perhaps some physical anthropologists. We cannot make laws against human nature which will last for very long.

Government doesn't have to be reinvented, and this can be accomplished legally. To develop their egalitarian programs, the liberals required the central control of the government, as they sought the destruction of localism and federalism. The Leave-Us-Alone constituency, in much the same way, should seek local control and the diversity of federalism through the Supreme Court.

The Theoevolutionary Church makes itself available to all states, all people, all races, promoting religiously founded Ordered Evolution and Revitalized Conservatism for all, as states and people recover their natural independence, which seems inevitable in the course of time and history.

This is an uncommon and optimistic note for a corrupt and declining country, but I think it is realistic. The alternatives, for example, a Latin American Style Democracy or some form of Caesarism, are a future to be avoided. It is the most natural thing to separate fighting parties when it is obvious that they cannot get along. Even if the large scale corruption of empire comes first, history suggests that empires always devolve back to small states with harmonious populations.
