Understanding reality requires the teaching of sociobiology in the humanities


As today's headlines show that racial riots are once again increasing, I think of how education in America has encouraged such disruptions. 

If we define education as the growing understanding of reality it is not enough to teach the old classical tradition and the Christian faith. That of course would be a great improvement over the cultural Marxism now taught. But reality requires the teaching of sociobiology not only in the sciences but in the humanities. If we want to understand reality we need to understand the depths of the biological origin of much of social behavior.

Where do we come from? Why are we here? Who are we? These questions need to include the sociobiological definition of human nature, which remains kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection.

This deepened view needs to be taught along with the traditional great books of the world. But the negative spin on the Enlightenment which traditional, classical, and religious education now teaches needs to change. Sociobiology would not have developed without the Enlightenment.

At the heart of education is the affirmation of identity, and not the identity of cultural Marxism which is now taught in our schools. Our biological ethnic identity is no small thing, it largely determines who we are and how we conduct our cultures. Teaching sociobiology can fill this empty gap.

Perhaps when we once again define education as the growing understanding of reality, that reality will include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates which protect who we are and where we live, for all ethnic cultures. As we move in and out of dark ages this is the inevitable future which real human nature always moves toward.
