Rational and instinctive channeling of human nature and human drives
Conservative tradition relates closer to real human nature than progressivism, but both have little or no sociobiology, and therefore both can do damage to humanity. Passions and instincts are not essentially evil, what is evil is trying to force human nature and biology to go against real human nature, whether the unnatural forcing comes from religion or political totalitarianism.
Our so-called freedom is circumscribed by biology, the natural world, and the cultures we are born into, and our freedom is limited by real nature, and real human nature. Our cultures and civilizations need to accommodate what we really are as humans. Modern culture has been moving in the exact opposite direction to this and deforming and corrupting what we really are.
Even the smallest change in human nature and our DNA structure, for example, in our immune system, took hundreds of thousands of years (now we have genetic engineering which is more rapid), but we all remain 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 selection. Rational and instinctive channeling of human nature and human drives, or education in general, needs to move in this direction.
I believe an ethnopluralism of states and regions can be established legally in the United States due to our constitutional separation of powers and states. It may require a few constitutional amendments to legally give more power to the states. This will not be easy, but it is far preferable to radically destructive civil disruptions, or even civil war, which naturally are now increasing due to competition between ethnic groups within multi-ethnic societies, even as we preach conservatism or progressivism.
