Natural rights and human rights need to be tied to real human nature
If we want to talk “natural rights,” “human rights,” or “human nature” we better get them right because much depends on how we define these things. Misunderstandings concerning the concepts of the “universal” and “equality” have been seen even in religion as well as in government, leading to many social problems. Both universalism and equality meant that the natural will to live of all people should be treated equally by the laws of government and the laws of nature (or God). They did not mean that people are or should be physically and mentally the same.
Politics, culture and art are best when they reflect the real truths of human nature, and according to ancient and recent knowledge, human nature is fundamentally 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 successful selection. This applies in general to all cultures in the world.
Natural rights and human rights need to be tied to real human nature. The cultural Marxism of the modern Western world, preached with great energy by the Big Media and Big Government, does not reflect real human nature at all. But what government does directly reflect real human nature so that it can therefore best define natural rights and human rights?
Our Constitution was more than hinting at real human nature when its founders developed the constitutional separation of powers and states, but they did also get caught up in those definitions of the universal and equality. Real natural rights, human rights, and human nature clearly call for the natural separations of ethnopluralism, that is, separate regions for distinctively different ethnic cultures so that they can live with the deepest possible natural rights in accord with real human nature. America can go this natural direction with fewer problems, even protected by federalism, due to our Constitution, and solve many of our past and future problems by doing so.
This sort of devolution of empires, which we are now seeing again in the world, has happened time and again in human history, because it best relates to real human nature .
