The elites have banished fundamental human nature, can it be revived?

James Kalb, one of our better conservative writers, arrives at the idea that the only hope we have for saving America is to be allowed to gradually change back and recover some of the vital things we have lost. (Chronicles, Feb 2016). But will global capitalism, open immigration, the Big Media, and the liberal intellectuals---who continue to indoctrinate us with unchecked immigration, hyper-consumerism, cultural Marxism, secularism and universalism---allow the necessary changes?

Modern bogus definitions of “freedom and equality” are all that we are allowed to believe in, and nothing else. All the things that in reality define a nation have been banned: language, ethnicity, religion, manners, customs, localism, all are banned.

Fundamental human nature has been banished. Think of that! The elites have banished being kin-centered, gender-defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection! Can all these natural things be recovered?

Human nature always rises again, one way or another, but conservative change is the healthiest way to change, radical revolution almost never makes things better. This is perhaps the most important idea of conservatism. We need to keep the best of the past as we change. And doing nothing is not a healthy option.

The old option on the far right of the supremacy and imperialism of one group over all others, or on the far left of a massive big government socialism, do not relate to real human nature or to our overcrowded world, which never accedes to such overbearing dominance.

I believe that the American constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states can accommodate the very natural separations of ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for ethnic cultures, at least voluntarily. Anything less than that will not restore our nation in harmony with real human nature. If this requires some small amendment to our Constitution, than so be it, it is better than decline and fall, or radical revolution.
