We need to re-empower the states toward developing ethnopluralism and ethnostates
Deep conservatism requires more than the standard social traditionalism, local government, and non-imperialism, although even achieving these would be good. Having worshiped bigness to the gross limits of marauding imperial globalism, we need to, gradually, return not only to localism but we need to re-empower the states even toward developing ethnopluralism and ethnostates.
When the regions and states are devoted to their own general ethnic cultures we can at last have government conform to real human nature, which remains kin-centered and ethnic-centered, with group-selection remaining as it has always been the main unit of selection. If culture proposes to not include these things, the culture does not last long and always returns to these things. This view of real human nature also is at the core of conservatism and tradition, although not always expressed so, whereas many of these traits are missing in cultural communism, modern liberalism, and post-modernism. Even traditional conservatism needs to return to the deep conservatism of the separation of powers and states originally seen in the U. S. Constitution, which could eventually accommodate ethnopluralism.
This would not happen over-night, it would require a period of years. We could first heed the ideas of people like James L. Buckley, who argues for abolishing federal grants in aid to state and local governments. “Federal grants are often used to persuade—or coerce—state and local governments to do things that the federal government wants them to do or to do things the way the federal government wants them done...” (see the review, “How Washington Bribes the States” )
We could at least start by not voting for the enablers and nurturers of bigness and imperialism, and we could promote small-is-beautiful politicians. It will be a difficult return to sobriety. Eventually we need to find local and states-rights people who seek to re-empower the states toward ethnopluralism and ethnostates. It is either a return to localism and states rights---and eventually perhaps 50 ethnostates---or the slow death of America from civil disruptions and even civil war due to natural and predicable ethnic competition, which we are increasingly seeing, as the melting pot certainly did not melt because ethnic melting pots do not relate to real human nature.
Heroic behavior will again be necessary, which will counter the anti-hero culture now pushed by the popular big media, because it is easier to control.
