Two big reforms that could save America (and the West)
The national psyche has disintegrated, but can it be put back together without first falling like the Roman Empire? I think it can. But both religion and the U. S. Constitution need to be reformed---not rejected.
I agree with those who have suggested that no great civilization has ever risen without being founded in religion. Readers of this blog know that I believe we need to open the Great Spiritual Blockade which has been in place against evolving in the material world to supermaterial Godhood. This reform conservatively retains the old ascetic Inward Path to the God or Father Within by seeing the Inward Path as the first glimpse or symbolic experience of Godhood, which in reality is reached through the Outward Path of material and supermaterial evolution. This is the Twofold Path of theological materialism. The false duality between the spiritual and material and between religion and science can this way be resolved.
The other big reform is to understand that the separation of powers, states, and regions seen in the U. S. Constitution needs to accommodate separate ethnic cultures and ethnostates within a protecting federal system. The unreality of having a political melting pot of distinctly different people was a dangerous and unworkable dream. The unreality of one culture, one people, one race, dominating all others in our crowded world was also a dangerous and unworkable dream. The reform toward ethnopluralism will bring political philosophy back to real human nature, which remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting.
These reforms will, conservatively, help us to avoid the coming civil disruptions and even civil war due to un-assmilating cultures and people in America---without radical revolutionary change. Some might say that these two big reforms in religion and politics would require miracles, that could be, but I would rather say these reforms require heroism.
