Why neoconservatives are cunning, nasty, and even dangerous thinkers
Neoconservatives claim that we are a “proposition nation.” But the neos build an abstract superstructure with no foundation.
Chilton Williamson recently pointed out that propositions are made by people, for example, it was the British ethos which developed our Constitution. I would emphasize that specific genes and environments are very much reflected in the propositions people make.
Many neoconservatives tend to see a Nazi behind every corner, but then they go on to consciously (or unconsciously?) create propositions that advance those who create the proposition, almost with another form of Nazism. This is why I find neoconservatives from Leo Strauss and Alan Bloom, to the present crowd at the “National Review” journal, cunning, nasty and even dangerous thinkers.
Don't get me wrong, I am not criticizing the natural desire for survival and reproductive success which activates the behavior of group-selection, I am criticizing disguising and lying about it. If we were honest we would see the good sense in allowing separate states for distinctly different and competing ethnic groups, and protect that independence.
Unlike the neoconservatives, paleoconservatives like Mr. Williamson and Pat Buchanan are at least sort of signaling an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
