Coming to grips with diversity and finding workable shared principles
It is not only cultural contradictions, as the politically correct both left and right define it, but biological differences which have led to the culture wars we have today. Coming to grips with diversity in America needs to relate to real human nature, and cultural Marxism doesn't affirm any biological origin to cultural behavior.
Honest people admit that human nature is 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. Even though conservatives demand solutions to the real problems of diversity which we now have, they rarely speak of this reality of human nature. It probably involves the fearful consequences of not being political correct.
The fact is, things in America worked smoother when America was mainly Anglo-Saxon, or protestant, or at least Northern European. Even the wild Middle East will work smoother when the religions and ethnic groups are given separate states. When will we be able to admit this? One is not a racist to admit this, one is a realist.
The cultural Marxism prevalent today can never attain consensus within our diversity regarding shared principles in America, because it does not relate to real human nature. This being the situation what can be done? Coming to grips with diversity and finding workable shared principles in America in reality means affirming ethnopluralism, with regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic groups. This could be done with the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states.
There really is no better workable way in our world today than ethnopluralism. Supremacy and imperialism simply don't work in this crowded world. But it means countering the grip of cultural Marxism and the various forms of communist or capitalist imperialism, and the hopeless dream of believing that harmony and peace only come when we all live under the same culture with complete equality in all things.
