What if Trump had answered the Klan question this way?


“Ladies and gentleman, America and the West have become unmoored by universalism. The only universalism I agree with is the univeralism of real human nature, which rejects universalism.

The Klan rose in the south as a blow-back reaction to the universalism being imposed on it from the North. Human nature is universally kin-centered and even ethnic-centered, and group-selection remains the primary unit of successful selection, over individual selection.

It is not the preference for group-selection that is wrong with the racialists and the Klan, it is their claims of imperialism, expansionism and superiority that are wrong with the racialists and the Klan.
 
I support the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states, defended by federalism. I do not support the invasion of all regions and all peoples by a universalism which goes against the reality of human nature".....

Would that answer have helped Trump? The nation has been buried in false universalism for too long to be changed by Donald Trump, who will now probably be destroyed as Pat Buchanan was before him.

So, it looks like realism in politics will not prevail, and civil disturbances and even civil war will continue, which ironically may one day lead to the regional separations of ethnopluralism.

Human nature, political realism, and teleology


I generally agree with realist strategy, but realist's don't act realistically when it comes to real human nature, although it is true that the virtues and values of conservatism in general recognize many of the traits of real human nature, such as being kin-centered, gender defined, heterosexual marriage-making, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

Realist's don't usually mention the Christian version of teleology and end times which most of them believe in when they disparage, say, Karl Marx, for placing his teleological goals in politics. I think realist strategy needs to include teleology because I believe human nature includes the inward goal of life evolving in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, and this calls for realistic, material, teleological goals. The ethnopluralism hypothesis written about here takes this sacred goal into account.

Separate regions and states for distinct ethnic cultures, protected by federalism, is not only realistic according to the traits of real human nature, as mentioned above, it also sets up the best environments for continued evolution. Our present unreal political goals of trying to make everyone and every thing equal in every way is not only impossible it is dangerous to life on earth because it naturally creates deadly competition between ethnic cultures within these utopian societies.

Religion, intellectual thought, and political practice do not need to be separated as the modern liberals, neoconservatives, and even realists have done, when evolutionary sciences such as sociobiology are affirmed within realism. Adjusting to the reality of real human nature is the basic need of politicians and statesmen---that is realism.

Don't study “political science” until you first study sociobiology


“Those liberalism wishes to destroy , it first drives mad.” (Chilton Williamson Jr.)

It seems to me that authentic thinkers, philosophers or not, have to live with and by their ideas, and feel their ideas personally. I see this in the best thinkers. I also think that the best thinker have real courage. Where does courage come from? From living life, facing obstacles, or even learning from not facing obstacles, with the best thinkers often facing fearful obstacles. It's probably true that Napoleon was defeated on the playing fields of Eton, not in the lecture halls, but great thinkers may be developed this way too, as the old Greeks knew.

And genius does turn up in unexpected places. Being taught in the academic world certainly does not guarantee courage, authenticity or originality. For example, don't study “political science” until you first study sociobiology---after that study history, philosophy, and so on. The evolutionary sciences should be taught front and center in the Humanities. Why isn't sociobiology featured in the humanities? You know the answer, sociobiology is not politically correct in that nefarious culturally Marxist sense which is taught in all our colleges and universities.

Read E. O. Wilson's book "The Social Conquest Of Earth," he is as accessible as Marx, and much wiser. After studying sociobiology you can approach thinkers like Nietzsche and Heidegger with the healthiest kind of skepticism. I also presumptuously say that you should read my series of short and clear paragraphs on theological materialism, unsanctioned by anyone. Then go forth in the world and multiply the best.

Will realist conservatives accept the next stage of realism as pointing toward ethnopluralism?


When the cold war ended, realist paleoconservatives managed to be flexible in foreign policy seeing that with the communists threat gone America needed to come home. But neoconservatives were not as flexible and wanted to stay abroad fighting monsters and making the world safe for American globalism. There was also the less mentioned dual loyalty of many leading neoconservatives (U.S./Israel) which kept them meddling in the middle east.

My question is this: will realist conservatives accept the next stage of realism as pointing toward ethnopluralism? Will conservatives be flexible enough to accept a realist domestic policy which calls for the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states being applied to ethnopluralism? The almost intractability of real human nature, with its strong preference for kin and group-selection, suggests the realism of ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for ethnic cultures, and protected by federalism. Ethnopluralism accommodated by the Constitutional principal of the separation of powers and states appears to be the best way to balance distinctively different (and growing) competing ethnic groups in the U.S (and elsewhere for that matter).

Ethnopluralism may seem to be too much of a change from what we have now, which goes against the realist philosophy, but it can be recalled that another element of realism is to be flexible and change when facts change. Since the time of Darwin the evolutionary sciences have been refining definitions of human nature and it is surprisingly to many conservatives that sociobiology affirms most of the conservative values in 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 selection.

I suppose it is mainly the conservative reluctance to accept the natural dynamic of evolution, which they wrongly think is contrary to Christian values, that holds them back from seeing the deep realism of ethnopluralism. One hopes they will not follow the neoconservative example of being unwilling to accept the real world.

Freedom and determinism in theological materialism: what is “willed” by nature?


In theological materialism the God of traditional religions, the Great Spirit or Giver of Life in Shamanistic religions, is not non-material but is material or supermaterial, and is contained within life itself, essentially defining life as the activating material/supermaterial Spirit-Will-to-Godhood. This sacred activation within life, which is material, works within the strictures of nature and natural selection. This definition allows for the long overdo consilience of science, religion and the humanities.

Science and often philosophy, and even the esoteric religions, typically measure the world and call that the world. But what is “willed” by nature? Regarding human nature many in the modern humanities say that virtually nothing is willed in nature and so we are “free.” The truth is more like the opposite and we have far less freedom than we think we do.

God or Godhood can be retained but it is a Godhood reached through material or supermaterial evolution, which was only symbolically understood or experienced in the Inward Path of traditional religions as being non-material and entirely spiritual. “Heaven” or Godhood still exists but is reached in the Outward Path at the zenith of material evolution.

We have freedom within that determinism. That is what is willed by nature. That is what essentially defines "life." We can be heroically free within this determinism and our growing knowledge can allow us to help life along in its sacred determined activation to evolve toward Godhood within the balance of nature.

Does courage trump intelligence in finding the truth?


Intellectuals are full of wordplay and idea-play which typically avoids the truth, I think largely due to a lack of courage. Watching the political phenomenon of Donald Trump has gotten me thinking about courage. Trump could bring another form of crony capitalism to the White House, and billionaires may have less to lose in standing up to political correctness, but courage is involved in Trump's behavior. The intellectuals are calling him a “bully” which plays into the current syrupy trend of demasculating men and boys.

I believe one of the things long necessary is for our intellectual class to have the courage to acknowledge the biological origin of social behavior. Political science and general Western culture need to acknowledge that individual selection is secondary to group-selection, and nationalism trumps globalism in basic human nature. Having the courage to admit sociobiology into the humanities, rather than weaseling out of it, naturally leads, if we are just, to the principle of the separation of powers and states, protected by federalism, where even ethnocentrism is acknowledged as a fundamental part of real human nature. Propagandizing against this with cultural Marxism has made a mess of the West.

Courage may have more to do with finding the truth than intelligence. Subverting the truth requires more cleverness than courage---contrary to popular thought even comedians use jokes to subvert the truth. The intellectual class in the West has lacked the courage to acknowledge when they are wrong about cultural Marxism. When you make the wrong diagnosis you come up with the wrong solutions, no matter how clever you are.

Beautiful Supermateriality in Defining Godhood


In thinking of the term “aesthetic intuition” regarding other intellectual forms of knowledge, perhaps beauty is on top, but on top in the material or supermaterial sense, not in a non-material apotheosis of ideas or symbols, as is done in most religions and philosophies.

The qualities of a materially evolved Godhood are seen as the zenith of the beauty, truth and goodness, and beauty is not seen as an unworldly nonmaterial God manifesting less important material qualities in the world. Instinctive physical desire can be made sublime this way, but not non-materially sublime---the outward path of material evolution leads toward supermaterial Godhood.

Ideas and definitions made sublime are not the highest beauty, they are secondary to real living beautiful objects. In this sense Godhood is the zenith of material beauty, truth and goodness. The “temptation” of beauty is not the material or physical, as the ascetics say it is, the temptation is to define only ideas and non-material forms as the zenith of all things, or as God.

I can praise ancient Greek pagan art as having portrayed Godhood in this material way. Have they been yet surpassed? It is mistaken ideas or forms that lead to the grotesque images in esoteric religion of a monstrous androgynous God. We can instinctively and intuitively follow or select beauty in our own male and female ways as we evolve upward to new beautiful species on the evolutionary path to Godhood.

We only sit back, stuff our faces, and guiltily giggle


I checked out the latest Judd Apatow Netflix series, “Love,” and I see that Apatow is continuing the old Hollywood tradition of turning innocent blond shiksa's into sluts (Gillian Jacobs.) “Slob comedies” are too mild a term for what Apatow and his tribe have been doing to healthy values and morals for years now, which has increased to where the “F" word, simulated sex, and general mental and physical degradation are common in the movies and on television, and on every other modern device.

Healthy people would feel a protective chivalry toward these unfortunate actresses under the perverse dominance of Hollywood. But the West has been corrupted by pornography and hedonism and so we only sit back, stuff our faces, and guiltily giggle. No wonder Islam wants nothing to do with the West...It looks like old Bob Dylan's hard rain is gonna fall after all, but probably not in the hippie way he preferred.

Paglia and Civilizing the Beast


Over the years cultural philosophers have come up with various ways to civilize the beast. Both  Friedrich Nietzsche and Camille Paglia wanted to release the beast mainly through the sublimation of Dionysian/Apollonian art, although Nietzsche didn't much mind aristocratic beasts as leaders.

If we take Paglia's stark but true definitions of male/female differences, as mentioned by Bradley Birzer (The American Conservative, Dec 2015), we find that at the hormonal extremes males are angry, motivated by a principle of attack, androgen agitates, and the male moral danger is brutishness. At the female extremes we find acute sensitivity, more stable containment, estrogen tranquilizes, and the female moral danger is stasis. (We usually hear these differences described as male territoriality and female nurturing.)

If we expand Paglia's gender definitions out to a broader, sociobiological, evolutionary definition of human nature we see that even the smallest change in our DNA structure, for example, in our immune system, takes hundreds of thousands of years, and we remain today kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

Combining Paglia's gender definitions and sociobiological definitions of human nature we can see, somewhat contrary to Nietzsche and Paglia, that they add up to most of the conservative values and virtues. But we can also see that political and cultural philosophy needs to move toward ethnopluralism if we wish to be healthy and natural, that is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures with distnct human natures, protected by some sort of federalism. This way territoriality, nurturing, and evolutionary variety can thrive, and we can continue to evolve toward Godhood, without losing the healthier elements of the beast.

Theological materialism as an alternative to the Gnostic alternative right


Theological materialism (TM) does not reject traditional religion, conservatism, or science. The inward God or Father Within is retained but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, which defines the Twofold Path. TM especially does not reject the evolutionary sciences, since they can do great service in the evolution of life toward real Godhood.

Many in the alternative right have been turning to the non-material Gnosticism of Guenonian and Evolian Traditionalism, and its brilliant Russian spokesman Alexander Dugin. This is a traditionalism that generally rejects the modern world, including the evolutionary sciences, in favor of the non-material worldview of a very ancient, perhaps proto-Indo-European derived Gnosticism.

The perspective they center on is a non-material world existing only in definition or symbolic form, or in consciousness-bending mind experiences brought about by ridding the body of material desires so as to experience the God Within.

The Twofold Path of theological materialism---conservatively---retains the symbolic experience of the God Within but transforms this secondary experience in the primary Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.

Conservatism is also upheld in TM with its view of human nature as affirmed by both religion and  evolutionary studies, where the virtues and the biological traits of human nature throughout human history are seen as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

Politically TM supports ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, which, at least in the U.S., could be---conservatively---accommodated by the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states.

To their credit Alain de Benoist and Guillaume Faye of the New Right in France have seen the good sense in ethnopluralism, although Benoit seems to have been at least somewhat seduced by the Gnostic traditionalism of the West-hating Russian, Alexander Dugin---but Faye less so.

I believe the conservatism of theological materialism, which includes within religion advanced sciences such as sociobiology, is a healthier and better philosophy for the present and future than the atavistic imperial Gnosticism of many in the alternative right. I hope they will see we need to include but transform the past.

The policies of ethnopluralism need to be the end product of present and future scholars, writers, and dealers in ideas


Moving away from the exhibitionism of the current presidential primary season, let me quote from the American Conservative: “ Policies are the end products of a long chain of manufacture, which typically begins with scholars, writers, and other dealers in ideas.”

It is still considered politically incorrect by modern liberals, and even some on the right who have been taught to be cultural Marxists, to say that it is first biology and genetic traits, with culture close behind, and not politics, that determines the character, tone and guiding beliefs of society.
 
The political differences between, say, Africans and Scandinavians, are the result of distinctive human biology adapting to different environments---and neither is superior or inferior. It is almost a form of madness to politically demand that one be like the other.

Considered from this realistic perspective, politics logically and intuitively points toward the political configuration of ethnopluralism. That is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, protected by some kind of federalism.

Ethnopluralism openly reflects real human nature, which is above all kin-centered and group-selecting, and is the truly just way to deal with human differences and human competition on our crowded planet.

In the United States ethnopluralism could even be accommodated legally by the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states.

The policies of ethnopluralism need to be the end product of present and future scholars, writers, and dealers in ideas. Let's begin.

Natural law over spiritual forms: theological materialism stays in nature


Theological materialism (TM) shares that old reverence for nature, seen more in the old Mongoloid-Taoist worldview (shared by native American Indians), even though they too end up dividing the world into the material and the spiritual, as did the Vedas and the Bible. TM does not. Western science also stays in nature. Godhood is in nature, evolved to in nature, and seen as the zenith of nature in the sense of Godhood as the zenith of material/supermaterial evolution.

The “Forms” of Plato are better defined as natural laws. The religious “detachment” defined as being in accord with the forms, as in the revealed religions, or as in the Bhagavad Gita, is detachment into a non-material spiritual world. TM defines detachment as acceptance of the natural laws---accepting ones fate means accepting natural material laws. “Spiritual” forms are or should be secondary definitions of natural laws.

But natural laws existing within human nature allow for some freedom within the determinism, due mainly to the brain power of humans. Here one needs to be aware of the bias or outright lies that can enter into all definitions due to those very natural laws which demand survival and reproductive success, which can lead to lies.

Human nature has been difficult to define over human history, but science and cultural tradition have gradually defined human nature. And it is from this general definition of human nature that the real “forms” or natural laws for human beings can be seen, with which we should try to follow, in a detached way or not in a detached way. The evolutionary sciences have actually strengthened many of the old traditional definitions of human nature.

In every human culture ever studied, human nature included kin-selection preferences, incest taboos, marriage, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, ethnocentrism, and group-selection as the main unit of selection. If culture proposes to not include these things, the culture does not last long and it will always return to these things. These things also happen to be at the core of conservatism and tradition, whereas many of these traits are missing in, say, communism and post-modernism.

“Life” is better described with the term will-spirit-to-Godhood. This will within nature, which is material, but still not well understood, must work with nature, with evolution and natural selection. This defines the sacred goal for human beings, and for all life, which does not reject the world by defining God outside of nature. How tragic (evil?) to have rejected the very vehicle of material/supermaterial evolution to attain real Godhood.
 
Finally, it is not the the spiritual blockade of evolution to Godhood alone that is wrong, this Inward Path to the symbolic experience of God or Father Within can be included but is transformed in the Outward Path of evolution to real Godhood, as described in the Twofold Path.

Will the rising populism be co-opted?


Across the Western world all the establishment politicians stand for the same things: free enterprise, social liberalism, egalitarianism, and internationalism, and the far left and far right are considered oddballs, as Freddy Gray pointed out, (Chronicles, Nov. 2016).

The people rise against the elites. Populism is fed up, as it usual is, and people are shouting that the Western establishment has to go. In the U.S. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have been making populist points declaring that globalism has worked only for the super rich, that democracy is controlled by Big Business.

Reality usually goes where the power goes, and the established powers usually find a way around populism. Populist candidates could of course cave and join the global imperium when they get close to real power. But it is also possible, in the case of Trump, that a few powerful capitalists have decided that they have ridden the global tsunami as long as they can, and now there is money to be made in closing down their international rivals and bringing business, and the military, back to the United States.

This way the new economic nationalism, the golden mean, would be co-opted by crony capitalism. I suppose the Clinton's could contaminate the White House once again. But perhaps we need to be realistic and not demand purity. Things seem to be moving in the right direction, even as things falls apart.

Theological materialism/theological spiritualism


For me the biggest division in religion and philosophy is better explained as the division between real objects and the definitions of real objects, and not between the spiritual and material.

Humans, especially intellectuals, seem to have an obsessive/compulsive need to define, intellectualize and mathematicize actual objects.

This has driven us away from reality and into unreality.

Religions tend to worship definitions, symbols, ideas, and not living objects, which they usually condemn for being material and not spiritual. Most philosophers also worship definitions, symbols, and ideas.

Ideas and symbols come later and are secondary to real objects, not primary. We need a culture that prefers reality and real living objects.

Even if symbols forecast or predict future reality as hypothesis---think of String Theory---they are not validated until they define actual objects---and symbols should not be worshiped even if they are validated in objects.
 
In the Twofold Path, theological spiritualism is seen as the secondary, involutionary, symbolic experience of the God or Father Within, which is not rejected but transformed in the primary evolutionary path which evolves material life toward the zenith of the object, or objects, of real supermaterial Godhood.

We need to unblock these Great Spiritual Blockades against reality in religion and philosophy. But this need not destroy religion. Theological materialism and the Twofold Path can bring religion and philosophy back to reality.

Science can actually join religion and philosophy, which can then relate to political philosophy.

Decline may be inevitable, but so is rising


Derick Turner wrote, “De-emphasis of ethnicity may be a corollary of a country's development.” (Chronicles, Nov. 2015) But non-whites are the only ones now emphasizing ethnicity. Astoundingly it has been made illegal (in Europe), or politically incorrect (in the U.S.A.) for whites to emphasize their own ethnicity. While whites are tearing down their own ethnic culture, non-whites are building up their ethnicity, and doing it within white cultures, helped along by the nefarious Big Media, Big Business, and the academic world.

Have you heard or seen the new Broadway smash rap hit “Hamilton,” which was featured in last night's Grammy Awards? The Blacks are claiming that Alexander Hamilton was Black and they are loudly doing so in their vulgar nursery-rhyme rap style. Ask them and they will tell you that rap culture is superior. And they are backed up by PhD's in our elite universities who claim that Shakespeare and T.S. Eliot are merely “dead white males.” This is still unreal to me!

Here is our dilemma: it is not only magnanimous but practical to find a way to include the various ethnic cultures in the crowded political configurations of today, one-race dominance will be taken down by other ethnic cultures who are not included, no-matter how strong one group thinks it is. So ethnopluralism becomes the magnanimous and practical option.

A separation of powers and states will be needed to accommodate ethnostates---distinct regions and states for distinct ethnic cultures, protected by federalism. In the U.S. this could even be accomplished legally. But it is already illegal to emphasize white culture in Europe, and very much politically incorrect to mention it in the U.S., so... can we remember “courage”? We may decline first, but group-selection dwells deeply within real human nature, and within every ethnic group. Life always rises, one way or another.

The painful primaries


Hillary Clinton's brand of feminism does not allow her to accept well meaning criticism, even from her supporters, about shouting into microphones which don't require shouting---"men shout so why can't women?”---when it is really genderless advice on voice pitch, which could actually help her cause.

This cluelessness relates to the whole condescending, holier-than-thou, 1960's fantasy socialism of the Clinton's. The Clinton's sneer at any criticism of their Hippie cultural Marxism as being a “right wing conspiracy.” The same attitude is applied when Bill's 1960's-type randy sexuality is mentioned. And their adult and married daughter, who they seem to be grooming for a political career, is even more insufferable. Bernie Sanders actually better represents the Clinton's 1960's socialism than they do.

But the Republicans are not much better. They all claim to be conservative when they are really neoconservatives or neoliberals who want to destabilize the world by bombing the hell out of everyone to make the world safe for global vandalism. Who is more condescending and insufferable than Ted Cruz? Even Donald Trump with his loudmouth egoism is a pain. But at least he does not seem to be controlled by the lobbyist who control the other candidates, and his political instincts seem to be healthy. But Trump's business connections remain a mystery.

What a pain they all are.

A Theology of Beauty, affirming the immanentizing of the eschaton


A theology of beauty is not merely for art and literature but for theology itself and for philosophy, but also includes a biology of beauty. Here's why and how:

A theology of beauty is grounded in the real world of living objects which evolve in the material world toward a supermaterial Godhood of living objects. This unblocks the Great Spiritual Blockade begun by ancient Indo-European sages and continued in the West by Plato and traditional religion on up to Heidegger and the post-moderns, who continued to define (and define only) the highest things, including God and Being, as non-material and beyond the material world.

Ever respectful of the common sense of conservatism, the theology of beauty does not reject the traditional religious Inward Path to the God or Father Within, esoterically or exoterically. but transforms this first symbolic experience in the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, as described in theological materialism.

This not only unblocks the Great Spiritual Blockade but brings biology, evolution, and real life itself, including science, into a theology and philosophy of beauty. Contrary to Eric Voegelin, this affirms the “ immanentizing of the eschaton,” that is, bringing about God by evolving in the immanent material world to Godhood.

This can bring the evolution of life to the zenith of life, which is Godhood, led by the biology of beauty, where the material zenith of simplicity, elegance, proportion, beauty, truth and goodness are defined as Godhood.

Claiming Burke in Ethnopluralism


Everyone likes to claim the brilliant conservative Edmund Burke as one of their own, and I do too, if we can imagine Burke having studied sociobiology. This, I contend, will lead to the political structure of ethnopluralism, which I think Burke might have also affirmed, with an upgrading of his views on traditional human nature. Remember Burke said, "We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature."

Sociobiologists could claim Burke too, if they absorbed Burke's idea that we are to take things as they are and not as they might be. This leads to the truths which sociobiology has been coming up with since the time of Darwin. As I repeat here often, in every human culture ever studied, human nature included kin-selection preferences, incest taboos, marriage, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, and ethnocentrism, and most important to political considerations, group-selection remains the main unit of selection. If cultures propose to not include these things they don't last long, and they always return to these things. These things are also at the core of conservatism and tradition, whereas many of these traits are missing in, say, communism and post-modernism---and were certainly missing in the French revolution, which Burke was not too fond of.

A society that maintain its boundaries, which Burke thought was important, should eventually see the good sense in ethnopluralism, which separate powers, regions, and states into distinct ethnic cultures, in accord with real human nature. Conservatively, the U.S. constitutional principal of the separation of powers and states could accommodate ethnopluralism, protected by federalism.

And finally, I think one of Burke's best ideas was that the “principles of true politics are those of morality enlarged'---which only some in the military still define as true leadership---and this can be applied to the evolutionary end-goal of material evolution moving toward supermaterial Godhood, as seen in the philosophy of theological materialism.

“The means must justify themselves,” said Burke, and the means of evolutionary sociobiology can be applied to the sacred goal of aiding evolution as it moves toward the zenith of truth, beauty and goodness in material/supermaterial evolution, which is Godhood. Conservatism can be included here too, as the symbolic traditional religious experience of the Inward Path to the God Within, as affirmed by Christ, Buddha and others, is retained but transformed in the Outward Path of evolution to real Godhood.

Diet


I still work at maintaining a healthy diet, like my father before me, my favorite breakfast in the past was coffee and Swedish pastries. But here is what I have learned about diet:

Unhealthy high-glycemic carbohydrate foods are addictive, they include candy, sugary cereals, crackers, cookies, cakes, flours (yes pasta), jams, preserves, bread products, refined potato products, and sugary drinks.

Most high-glycemic carbohydrates are actually poison to our health, immediately causing inflammation and other health damage---doctors should be telling this to their patients.

Why would we feed poison to ourselves or addict ourselves? Bakeries and candy stores, and large sections of supermarkets, are actually like backstreet drug paraphernalia head shops, accept that they are on main street.

Have healthy low-glycemic vegetables and fruits, eat nuts, seeds, and perhaps a little bio-yogurt. Eat only meat, fish, poultry, etc., and essentially nothing else. No grains or dairy...Why would we feed poison to ourselves or addict ourselves?
 
For the science behind these claims read Loren Cordain.

Let's correctly understand altruism and the ethnopluralism it naturally leads to politically

 
I think it is true that nature and natural laws eventually rectify the follies of men. Someone said (Nietzsche?) that mighty empires fall when they begin to have numberless laws. When traditionalists and conservatives disparagingly describe the present times as hedonistic “neo-pagan” times they are being unfair to pagans. Pagans were not lawless and nihilistic, and they were not individualistic hedonists.

For example, real altruism within the group was in strong effect in pagan cultures, but not altruism for the whole world. Real altruism is based in the success of group-selection. The sociobiology of E.O. Wilson has shown that within groups selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals. It seems to me that regarding altruism classical warriors had a better grasp of human nature even than traditional priests. Warrior asceticism (or stoicism) mainly demands group-selection, priest asceticism demands mainly individual selection, because priests are mainly involved in reaching the inward God or Father Within, which is an individual action, whereas warriors deal in the outward survival of the group, which is a mainly a group-selection action. We can have both, but let's correctly understand altruism and the ethnopluralism it naturally leads to politically. Ayn Rand, the darling of libertarians and neoconservatives, bright as she was, did not understand real altruism, which she attacked. Her hero Nietzsche also did not understand natural altruism.

I think the natural state of man is to live in regions and states where altruism and harmony between ethnically related people can more naturally take place---fewer laws are then required. Ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures requires fewer laws to keep social harmony. In any case people tend to naturally divide themselves into ethnic conclaves even in communist states.

Relating these points to present laws in the U.S., if the Supreme Court can radically redefine marriage, religious freedom, and civil rights, then it surely can affirm the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states, which could lead to natural regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, where natural altruism could create far more social harmony than the present attempts to force together a motley nation of growing and competing ethnic factions. Radical revolution and the tearing apart of our nation can be avoided.

Trump's Connections?


I like Donald Trump because it seems that he “can't be ignored, shut up, or bought off” by corrosive political correctness, as James Kalb put it. And so it is probably nitpicking to ask about Trump's connections. But even Pat Buchanan hasn't asked what are Trump's real connections to crony capitalists and the Jewish lobby?

This politically incorrect question gets complicated in view of the feud between pro-Zionist neoconservatives and anti-Zionists Jewish liberals. Could there be another great scam going on? We have been fooled before by false flag kind of operations.

The point is, if Trump and a few of his friends go after nefarious global corporations, like corporate raiders, and then replace them with more crony capitalism, where are we then? I suppose we have to take two steps forward and one back, whatever this new political dynamic turns out to be.

The Outsiders Were Right


Two outsider levels, the paleoconservatives, and the underground nativist/racialists were right when they claimed that the global corporations and the neoconservative/neoliberals are responsible for the decline and decadence of the West.

The invasion of Europe by migrants from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, predicted 40 years ago by the thoroughly ostracized Jean Raspail, has been cheered on by the same global corporations and the neoconservative/neoliberals. And it has been coming to America.

Christian universal spiritualism has held the paleoconservatives back, at least somewhat, from descending deeper into the underground of biology, or sociobiology, to defend their native lands, but not so the nativist/racialists who proudly affirm real human nature as being kin-centered, ethnocentric and primarily group-selecting.

The big  problem with the nativist/racialists is that they usually champion only one people, one ethnic group dominating all others, which is impossible in our overpopulated world, which gangs up on any such racial imperialism.

Logically, instinctively, and justly, the next stage of recovery for the West points toward ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, protected by some sort of federalism.  The constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states could even apply in the U.S. This life-saving development---for all people---is still deeply underground and the global corporations, the neoconservative/neoliberals---and don't forget the Big Media---are all very much against it, so don't hold your breath.

The metaphysical errors of Heidegger, Dugin and Guenon


One has to agree with Alexander Dugin when he hopes for an end to modern liberalism in the West, but I disagree that this also means the suppression or destruction of the U.S. and the West. And I also disagree with Dugin's paean to Martin Heidegger (“The Philosophy of Another Beginning”).

Heidegger's definition of human nature as “There Being” is only confusing. There is no Being or “Sein” as Heidegger defines it.

Plato's “technique” is far more than the reduction of consciousness, it is the reduction of material life itself. Plato prefers a non-material Being, but so does Heidegger! Their Being is only a definition, however sacred.

Heidegger was right to attack philosophical tradition since Socrates/Plato, as was Nietzsche, but neither of them led the way out of relativism, nihilism and false spirituality. Heidegger and Dugin were also right to show how Plato wrongly divided the world into phenomenal “things" and eternal “forms.” But then Heidegger and Dugin do the same thing!

In reality Heidegger, Dugin, and also the traditionalist Rene Guenon put man's consciousness no longer in the world because they also place God or the zenith of Being no longer in the world, as Plato and the Indian sages did before them. This certainly did not lead the world out of the deepest relativism and nihilism.

Heidegger was right to point out that technocracy leads to inhuman tyranny. Artificial super-intelligence continues this move toward techno-tyranny. But a non-material Being or God which leads us to hating science and technology is also inhuman tyranny. Science is probably our best hope of actually reaching real Godhood, by aiding in our material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.

Heidegger was not a bridge to a new philosophy, his Being was not very much unlike Plato's Being, or Guenon's God, defined as a non-material super consciousness. This is only a definition or blissful experience of God and not a material or supermaterial thing itself.

Theological materialism, written about in this blog, expands philosophical naturalism in ontology. We evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood and not to a non-material consciousnesses of Being. We can, like good conservatives, retain in the Twofold Path the inward consciousness of God or the Father Within, but it is transformed in the outward path of evolution toward real Godhood.

This is the true revival of religion, philosophy, and science, together again. Political philosophy is also included in the revival of the West (and the East) with ethnopluralism, which is most in harmony with evolution and real human nature, and in harmony with the constitutional separation of powers in the good old U.S.A., which certainly does not need to be suppressed.

This is not a new radical "beginning" but a long overdo transformation of traditional life and philosophy.

The laws of nature or natural law, which is it?


The difficulty seems to come from mixing non-material spiritualism with materialism, and also from assigning too much free-will to man. Difficulties also arise from the human creation of a non-material God who creates eternal laws or divine laws.

Godhood is in and of nature, and it is the laws of nature, not God, which activate the evolution of material life to supermaterial Godhood. Human reason is important but may or may not discern this reality. Nature is bigger than human reason.

So it is “the laws of nature” as understood over time by mankind which we should try to harmonize with, and “natural law” as defined in traditional religion only confuses our understanding.

The laws of nature include human nature. In every human culture ever studied, human nature included, among other things, kin-selection preferences, incest taboos, marriage, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, and ethnocentrism, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection. If a culture proposes to not include these things, the culture does not last long and it will always return to these things. These things are mainly missing in communism, modern liberalism and post-modernism, and so these “isms” are mainly why the Western world is decadent and declining.

What is in harmony with the laws of nature and human nature? The science of evolution has developed from Darwin to E. O. Wilson and has in the process learned what real human nature is. Human nature remains kin-centered, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection. Politically this means that the most rational and just values, relating to real human nature and the laws of nature, lead to the separation of powers and states, and to an ethnopluralism protected by federalism.

The material Godhood which is left out of religion, traditional conservatism and Darwinism is the supermaterial Godhood which material life evolves toward in the natural world. The divine is a level of life we can evolve to become. Life endlessly evolves with no beginning and no end---who can really prove a beginning or an end, or a “motionless” mover? Our mission is to aid in the evolution of life toward real Godhood.

We can return full circle to nature and real human nature while retaining Godhood, conservatism, and enlightened science, with the philosophy of theological materialism.

How to Prevent the Fall of America and the West


If we admit that the U.S. is now or soon will be a black, brown and beige nation does that mean it is all over for Euro-American whites? Human nature being what it is, kin-centered and ethnocentric, with group-selection as the main unit of selection, it is all over, if we continue to be led by the cultural Marxism of political correctness, and by the neoconservatives, who are both controlled in Washington by the Wall Street lobby, the fossil fuel lobby, and the Israeli and Saudi lobbyists.

These are the people who have ruined America and the West. If nothing is done and the cultural Marxists take over, their solution is to continue to build big-government socialist fascism, the kind that lasted only a short time in Soviet Russia. But it needs to be understood that they are doing what comes natural in promoting their own groups! This being the situation, the only realistic way to save America is to allow group-selection, but for us all!

The constitutional separation of powers and states in America needs to be applied to regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, protected by federalism. It's called ethnopluralism. This is the best way to legally save America and the West---it is as simple or difficult as that. Other solutions are short term. Even the paleoconservatives, the best conservatives, offer as a solution, the social media, or not reading the New York Times, or supporting the police, or Donald Trump. That is good, but not nearly enough.

The last hope, even if we are destroyed, is that empires always fall and time and again natural ethnostates rise out of the ashes. But we don't have to be utterly destroyed before we rise, if ethnopluralism can be developed before we fall.

I still find it hard to believe that homosexuality has become a popular trend


Homosexuality has become a new fashion, especially among young people, and it's no surprise that the nefarious Big Media is largely responsible for the trend.

Serious science has found that group-selection is the primary unit of successful human survival and reproduction. Individualistic, hedonistic, homosexuality increases the falling birth rate in the West, weakens the heterosexual-oriented strength of the military, and damages the natural family foundation of society---among much other damage. And since studies have found (Sexual Abuse: A Major Cause Of Homosexuality?) that homosexuality is perpetuated mainly by those who have themselves been sexually abused as young people, homosexuality increases the chain of its perpetuation in society.

As to the so-called art created by homosexuals, which is supposedly their strong point, most of it is garbage compared to the history of art, and it is usually strongly anti-social.

Studies claiming that homosexuality is mainly biologically based have not been replicated, so the new trend of “coming out” is largely Media developed. And it doesn't help that the academic world supports homosexuality, based largely on postmodernism, which bogusly finds that there is no determined  human nature to conform to or harmonize with.

So once again it is the Big Media, or their controllers, who are most damaging to the West. It is the Media which is keeping homosexuality from going back in the closet, where it will naturally return to---if the West is to survive.

Telling the difference between social and antisocial high creativity


Nietzsche often seemed to support criminals, but he was referring mainly to highly creative individuals and to high culture in comparison to mediocre individuals and low culture. For example: “Punishment does not purify, simply because crime does not sully.”

Although I suspect that Nietzsche had authority problems, having been early raised without male authority (later perhaps seen in his love/hatred of Wagner), and he was a bit of a sociopath, the point to make, which opposes Nietzsche's aristocratic radicalism regarding creativity, is that we need to really know the difference between social and anti-social high creativity.

The highly creative psychologist Raymond Cattell understood this problem well and he and his students developed psychometric tests to help tell the difference between social and anti-social high creativity, so that we may know better who to invest in. Although psychometric tests are not always predictive, psychometric tests have been increasingly forbidden because they do not fit in with the bogus culturally Marxist agenda of political correctness.

Today high and low creativity are mainly of the anti-social kind in art and philosophy, probably at least somewhat do to Nietzsche. I think that the conservative social, not anti-social, creativity seen here in the religious philosophy of theological materialism with the Twofold Path, has a creative social advantage over Nietzsche's will-to aristocratic radical individualism. The antisocial relativism and nihilism of postmodernism has been killing us.

Revolutions and Reformations Continue


Marx and Engels said that one ruling minority, or one class, continually replaces another. But classes are usually led by well-bonded ethnic groups---unquestionably the Bolsheviks were led by well-bonded Jewish intellectuals.

In the United States white Anglo-Saxon protestants (WASPS) were replaced in the “reformation”of American politics by lefty modern liberals, or cultural Marxists. After that we had the neoliberal-neoconservative War Party takeover of the National Review---think of what was done to Pat Buchanan and the paleoconservatives at Chronicles magazine.

Now we have the populist rising (Trump, Sanders) against the neoliberal-neoconservative War Party (Kristol-Clinton), and the growth of a new Islamic revolution.

Eventually, I believe we will have the return to the constitutional principle of the separation of powers and states and the rise of ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for ethnic cultures, protected by federalism. Of the revolutions and reformations just mentioned this will be the longest-term solution to the unending, but natural, squabbling of ethnic groups, and the problems caused from open-border immigration.  This legal reformation will revive the disintegrating West---and would do so in the East.

Why I hate the New York Times


Modern liberalism, which is really cultural Marxism, oozes from every clogged pore of the New York Times, but cultural Marxism is an entirely bogus philosophy having nothing to do with real human nature, other than a hidden will to power.

Throughout human history up to the present time human nature has remained 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. And so in a condescending and nauseating way the philosophy of the NYTimes is ridiculous.

What else? Jewish favoritism, really Jewish racism, which is natural, but the NYTimes preaches non-racism from skyscraper to slums, and this nefarious hypocrisy and double-dealing is baked within every page.

Why do I read the NYTimes? I force myself to read it just once a month, at least so far, so that I can see what the detested newspaper is up to.

Nietzsche's Big Mistake


Nietzsche would have been truly great if he had not been missing a good understanding of conservatism, which he might have included in his brilliant radical creativity. That is, the retention, but then also the transformation, of old traditional conservatism. Aside from the obvious practicality, there is much wisdom in conservative traditions.

God would not have had to be declared dead by Nietzsche. Godhood needed to be understood as being retained but transformed in the evolution of natural material life to supermaterial Godhood, the God first seen in the inward paths of traditional religions. Nietzsche's followers, such as Sigmund Freud, and the post-moderns, continued the same mistake, which led to relativism and nihilism disguised as creativity.

Theological materialism does not make that mistake. The deepest reading of the Revealed Religions centers on an Inward God not an Outward God, which is limiting. The Inward God is the image or blissful experience of the Outward God (opposite Plato), and outward Godhood can exist as a supreme supermaterial living object, or objects, evolved to in material nature. Both Paths are contained within the Twofold Path of theological materialism. The activating Spirit-Will and Godhood are not immaterial entities, as they are in Aristotle, Aquinas and even Darwin.

The perfumed garbage of political correctness and the return to real human nature


Today begins the first election primary in Iowa. The Big Media makes it seem like all of America is swimming in the perfumed garbage of political correctness, or cultural Marxism, but the people find political correctness a real pain in the neck. The populism of the people, seen in the rise of Trump and Sanders, is a sign of political health. But when will politics directly relate to real human nature?

In every human culture ever studied, human nature included, among other things, kin-selection preferences, traditional marriage, incest taboos, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, ethnocentrism, even xenophobia, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection. If a culture proposes to not include these things the culture does not last long, and cultures always eventually return to these things. This still defines real human nature, nothing has changed. Our nation at this time continues to be separated into enclaves of distinct ethnic groups, in spite of years of political machinations to change this most natural states of things.

These natural values are for the most part missing in, communism, socialism, progressivism, neoconservatism, and post-modernism. Even egalitarianism, individualism, and laissez-faire, as preached by libertarians, are secondary in real traditional conservatism. But the great American constitutional principle of the separation of powers and limited government does line up well with real human nature, and if allowed to do so naturally leads to ethnopluralism. But no politician now is is even thinking about ethnopluralism, that is, regions and states set aside for distinct ethnic cultures, and legally protected by the separation of powers, and by federalism.

If we cannot develop natural ethnopluralism we will tear ourselves apart in ethnic competitions, which are now increasing because we have no real immigration policy, due to political correctness. If we can bring American corporations and the America military home again, and if we can then develop ethnopluralism---legally---then we will not fall apart like the Roman Empire. Future politics will be as simple or difficult as that. But the populism we see rising this election time in the United States---and across the world---is a good beginning.
