Can art, politics, and the affirmation of the sacred be revived?
Art was not solely murdered by modern artists like Picasso and his cohorts who entered the dying room of art with knives to inflict the stabbing death blows. Art was murdered by malicious and perverted patrons of modern art, and by degenerate political and cultural philosophers who built a multi-cultural tower of Babel, which murdered the legitimate motivations for art and politics.
Nothing was left for art and politics but the license and hyper-individualism provided by decadent democracies. Real human nature was blocked and buried by false ideologues with agendas of their own and with no love and even hatred for traditional Western art and politics.
Can art, politics, and the affirmation of the sacred be revived? Is the patient really dead? The patient will not rise until there is something to affirm! Affirming real human nature means being 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.
The people would be happy with an art and politics which affirms their sacred lands and their sacred people. Those of us who are against imperialism and globalism remember that many totalitarian dictators were motivated by a hatred of the degenerate art and politics of their time. Ethnopluralism with thousands of protected ethnostates is the moral high ground allowing art, politics, and the affirmation of the sacred to to be revived in the world. Will we do it?
