As several thinkers have pointed out (Charles Murray, Patrick Deneen), the heartland is no longer wholly the home of conservatism and traditionalism, the heartland now exists in blighted communities, broken families, destroyed by drugs, etc., while the liberal elites living on the two coasts, ironically, can better afford solid family life and live almost in conservative communities, even though the same pornography and the same decadent culture has gone mainstream for us all, thanks mainly to the Big Media and the corrupted academic world.
Where did conservatism go? First of all, way back around the 1950's, at the beginning of the modern conservative movement, the foundation of real conservatism was purged from "conservatism" by people like William Buckley. That is, the largely biological origin of much of human social behavior, from which real conservatism rises, was defined as politically incorrect, bigoted, and even evil. Modern conservatism began to die even as it was beginning. But the conservative biologically origin of human nature remains kin-centered, gender-defined, ethnocentric, group-selecting, and as nationalistic as it has always been. But the sociobiological way to save conservatism was not and is not mentioned by conservatives or by liberals, other than as something politically incorrect and even evil.
As I wrote here yesterday, the reality of real human nature points toward a deeply conservative political/cultural solution which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates within our democratic republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states. Different ethnic groups can then politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to in their own regions and ethnostates. We would retain federalism and subsidiarity to balance the states together, because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world. And economic nationalism could thrive.
That is where real conservatism is and where it will return to, if we want to conserve anything.

A real American recovery has not been allowed because real human nature has not been allowed within the solutions to why we aren't recovering. If allowed real human nature could shut down the individuals and groups who have gained power by promoting cultural Marxism on the left and amoral libertarianism on the right, which have been heavily promoted by the controlled Big Media and the academic world.
Real human nature consists of gender differences, age-grading, marriage-making, hierarchy, ethnocentrism, religion-making, group-selection, and other typically traditional human traits. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against real human nature, such as cultural Marxism or amoral libertarianism, but cultures are always, eventually, pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature, as E. O. Wilson so brilliantly and courageously pointed out many years ago.
The people have been taught, or brainwashed, by the Big Media and the academic world into thinking that all people are the same, that distinctively different groups can and should live together in the same multicultural territory, and love one another equally and universally. The people have been taught that the real human nature, defined above, is politically incorrect, and even evil behavior.
Americans from both the right and the left elected Donald Trump as President because he at least hinted at restoring what seemed instinctively healthy for the people. But Trump's talk of recovery turned out to be mainly demagogic salesmanship, and he has turned now to the same neoconservative amoral and immoral libertarianism of past politicians. But even if he had kept on the path that Pat Buchanan first traveled, of real economic nationalism and traditionalism, that would not have brought a lasting recovery.
The reality of real human nature points toward the political/cultural solution which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states. Different ethnic groups can then politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to in their own regions and ethnostates. But we would need to retain federalism and subsidiarity to balance the states together, because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world.
This is the political/cultural structure most in harmony with real human nature, and the answer to why we aren't recovering. This can be done without radical revolution, which does more harm than good...Perhaps the same solution can apply to Europe, which is falling apart more rapidly than America, due to the same causes.

Occult Kabbalistic/Gnostic knowledge, the Traditionalist School, or follower-groups like the Freemasons, are not affirmed but if retained at all are transformed in theological materialism and in the coming Evolutionary Church.
The old Kabbalistic term “Adam Kadman” can be defined as "God" experienced in the Inward Path (think of the Vedas, Buddha, and Christ). In reality Godhood is attained in the active Outward Path of material evolution toward supermaterial Godhood. This is called the Twofold Path in theological materialism, which conservatively retains the old Inward Path but transforms it in the Outward Path.
Any “Tree of Life” symbolism, if still retained, would need to redefine the symbolic expulsion of Adam from Eden as being not caused by eating the “forbidden fruit of knowledge” but for ignoring or being ignorant of knowledge of the material, not spiritual, evolution of life toward real Godhood, and ejected from the garden for devolutionary cultural and biological trends.
Real Godhood is not defined as the Kabballistic/Gnostic/Traditionalist School/Masonic attaining of the Soul/Father/God-Within, and Godhood is not demonstrated by creating artificial life, whether by computer, robot, or man. Godhood is attained through the real "alchemy” of material evolution all the way to supermaterial Godhood.
Who has that occult knowledge? That is the real evolutionary alchemy of changing material life into the gold of supermaterial Godhood. Seeking the Soul-Within---which was perhaps developed for warriors in some proto-Indo-European homeland and carried to the middle east---can be a distraction, a subterfuge, or a Great Spiritual Blockade away from the real divine mission, which is to materially evolve all the way to supermaterial Godhood.
This becomes as much an exoteric as an esoteric divine mission, joining science and religion. Separations, variety, and rational territoriality are necessary to evolution, and meritocracies are inevitable, but all groups need to share evolutionary knowledge---the world always gangs up on and stops the advance of any selfish occult group seeking to advance themselves alone.

I don't think we should dwell on the "fallen" state of man, or how we are "flawed" relating to God, which I believe is based on mistaken metaphysics and a distorted view of religion and human nature.
The reason for hope is based in real human nature which remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting, and which always eventually brings the recovery of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates after the inevitable fall of empires.
To recover, conservatives in America need not turn toward radicalism but toward building upon the constitutional tradition of the separation of powers and states to allow the natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where real human nature can flourish.
Then the federalism and subsidiary of our wise Founders can protect the whole, without the Big State rule of corrupt elites who care little or nothing at all for the people. Real human differences can than actually flourish without trying to jam all groups together in one territory of unworkable and socially disruptive "multiculturalism."
The real passion and hope of religion should not be blocked by the rejection of material desires--- thought in essence to be evil---in the pursuit of non-material spiritualism, since it is material evolution which brings us to real supermaterial Godhood.
It is this positive and hopeful view of life and human nature which can be guided by scientific/religious research into how best to evolve toward real Godhood, while living within natural ethnostates affirmed by real human nature.

In the glut of Big Media hate against the slaughter of innocents by the monsters in Manchester England, the old saying that "they are over here because we are over there" should not be forgotten. The neoconservatives and globalists who continue to go about the world treating the world like expendable cattle, now includes President Trump, even though he promised the people who elected him to clear those Western monsters from the swamp.
Apparently the West cannot stop the neoconservatives and globalists any more than we can stop Islamic terrorists. The neoconservatives, who joined with the globalists, were originally concocted by Gertrude Himmelfarb, Irving Kristol, and other New York intellectuals whose spawn have now slithered back into power do to Trump's megalomaniacal buffoonery.
Expect more monsters until real leaders for the West come forward.

I have found conservatives more practical and realistic than progressives, but when conservatives go on to congratulate themselves on not being "ideological" or on avoiding pie-in-the-sky formulations, I think of their heaven as Utopian and ideological as the Marxist goal of one day being "more than we really are."
Progressives make a big mistake in not paying attention to tradition, which follows, or should follow, real human nature. But conservatives make a mistake in not paying enough attention to the Enlightenment, which has gradually and scientifically refined the traditional definition of human nature without rejecting it---at least the science of sociobiology has done this.
Human nature remains 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, followed by individual selection. How do ideologies and religions harmonize with real human nature and the biological origin of much of cultural behavior?
Progressive tend to believe that human beings are completely malleable for virtually any social behavior, whereas conservatives believe that human nature is determined to seek non-material spiritual things. The God of conservatives is non-material and spiritual, but the "God" of progressives is also a non-material Idea, and is therefore "spiritual."
Theological materialism uses "progressive means for conservative ends", as someone put it, which is a good definition of conservatism. Conservatives brag that a complex ideological future is not in our hands in answer to progressives who say it is. The reality is some of both. Traditional ideas of Godhood need to be joined with the evolutionary sciences: we evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, and our aiding in that sacred mission is the synthesis of conservatism and progressivism.

Prominently displaying a very big butt has become very trendy, at least since the Kardashians. It seems mainly to be the preference of black men and women, but white women have been flocking to the cult.
Sex for sex sake, promiscuity, sexual liberation, the constant use of the F-word in normal conversation, etc. etc., this began at least as far back as Freud who more or less thought that "sexual inhibitions" from traditional views on sex cause neurosis. Now we have the popular trend of women, including young women, loudly dressing the way prostitutes dress.
All this degeneration is promoted by the Big Media, the academic world, radical feminism, etc. etc., and only fundamentalist Christians (and hated Muslims) dare to speak against it. Secular writers don't want to look like prigs or prudes so they won't touch this politically incorrect subject.
All the values and virtues that actually hold families and societies together, gender differences, monogamous marriage-making, family, patriotism, etc. have been attacked by modern popular culture, and so our societies have been falling apart.
We have to at least fight against the popular trend of women dressing and acting like prostitutes, but we don't want to go back to the way women are treated in, say, Saudi Arabia, or in the ultra-orthodox circles of Israel. Are we too far gone to even be against smutty popular trends?
We thought President Trump might move things in this conservative direction (in spite of his beauty pageant hanky-panky) but he is only busy enhancing the same old amoral and immoral global imperialism.

Schopenhauer, the idealist, thought that the universal Idea of great art provided greater beauty than nature actually provided or failed to achieve.
I find that only half right. The evolution of material life toward Godhood in nature provides life greater than art can provide. Yet at the same time art can supply or affirm that Idea of the sacred goal of life with the affirmation of the sacred, which all great art shares.
More essential and universal than history itself, and more essential than universal Ideas, is the activating material Spirit-will-to-Godhood within every cell of the body. This activation does not change throughout history and is a real universal essence. The Idea of this essence is only secondary to the material essence itself which activates life to evolve to Godhood.
The spirit, soul and mind were thought to be '"spiritual," not material, but they are really the highest aspect of the material mind beyond most material drives, and they too are activated by the universal, essential, material Spirit-will-to-Godhood, in conjunction with outside natural selection and evolution.
It seems to me that great art can return with this affirmation of the sacred supermaterial goal of life and evolution.

Contrary to the old idealists I think the "will" is objective not subjective. The idealists and the old religious and philosophical gurus in effect considered the will evil and something that should be blocked so as to have more "objective" religious and aesthetic experiences.
But those religious experiences seem to be the subjective product of the mind blocking the desires of the body (which Buddha and Christ called for) with the resulting hedonistic bliss defined as Godly, or higher objectivity.
It seems highly arrogant of human beings to think that they are experiencing real Godhood or high objectivity because life, including human beings, must evolve far beyond the human species to reach real Godhood.
We can "experience" the material will within but that is not God, it seeks Godhood by activating life to evolve toward Godhood. This requires not blocking but paying attention to the will---here called the material spirit-will-to-Godhood---and then helping the material evolution to Godhood as best we know how.
The will is the objectively-oriented and Godhood-oriented activator of life toward absolute objectivity and Godhood. But there probably is no absolute objectivity or absolute Godhood because there appears to be no beginning and no end to evolution, only many starts, stops, new beginnings, and even many Godhoods along the way.

I listen to classical music and jazz mostly, but one of the things I used to like about country music was that country singers were willing to compete with rock and soul music (which I also like). But then big city shyster producers and promoters invaded county music and Nashville and now we have country singers doing second-rate versions of black rap.
Be that as it may, human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group selecting, which naturally leads to competition between ethnic groups. But the Big Media and the academic world have managed to define natural ethnic competition as "racism," or even as Hitlerism.
Then the insidious modern liberals follow this attack on real human nature with expanding versions of "affirmative action," or racial preferences for blacks over other ethnic groups. White men became evil racists if they objected to watching the increasing dominance of white culture by other ethnic cultures. That is where the Alt-Right taunt of white men as cuckolds came from.
I don't believe in the superiority of one race or ethnic group over another, but I do believe in racial and ethnic differences (backed by science), which should be applauded and not condemned. None of us should be forced to accept the destruction of our own culture.
Who benefits from this destruction of Western high and low culture? Modern liberalism as cultural Marxism is a front for the will-to power and dominance of individuals and ethnic groups over other ethnic groups. I see an ethnopluralism of ethnostates as the only healthy and rational way to deal with this natural competition which always tears nations and empire apart.

Schopenhauer thought genius can work independently of the end-seeking will, and that philosophical objectivity---and also great art as well as Buddha's bliss---could be achieved that way. But why would we want to be independent of the will, or the instincts within every cell of the body, if the will seeks to activate material life to evolve to Godhood? Schopenhauer thought genius could be objective by being independent of the will, but the will or spirit-will, which is a material activation, seeks the highest truth (objectivity), goodness, and beauty by way of material evolution.
I would rather call the will the Super-Id, but Schopenhauer thought of the will as a super-monster (Freud followed him in this). Civilizing the beast means philosophically and culturally helping the material will (the old word was spirit) to attain its sacred goal as best we can. Although material life probably evolves to Godhood eventually even without our help, we can speed up the process as our knowledge increases by removing obstacles to the various levels of Godhood. That is the next religious mission.

Schopenhauer, along with the religious founders, thought that all "willing" and all desires stem from lack, from deficiency, that is, from suffering, and so material life was degraded and made negative.
That was a mistaken and unfortunate philosophy of life and for humanity, because life evolves to real Godhood in the material world of desire and suffering.
The will (here called the Spirit-Will-to-Godhood although it is entirely material) is inherent and instinctive in every cell of the body, and it is the positive, not negative activation of material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, which is the zenith of success in survival, as well as the success and reward of religion.
The negative view of life of Schopenhauer and the religious founders was designed mainly to experience the God or Father Within, which could be blissfully experienced (or real "objectivity" realized according to Schopenhauer) by blocking material desires which were thought to lead only to suffering.
Nietzsche almost recovered from that great spiritual blockade of Schopenhauer, but he saw no goal to the will other than a relativity of power, and no Godhood-end to his will-to-power. So Nietzsche tried to kill God and religion as being useless and harmful, or as being the will to power of weaklings.
That was not necessary. The will or spirit-will of material evolution activates life to evolve to Godhood in the material world. Suffering is overcome not by neutering desires but by fulling desires, that is, not fulfilling hedonistic desires but desires which enhance and affirm our upward material evolution toward Godhood.
Restored religion can join with science in this inherent and great evolutionary mission of life, and philosophy and culture can reflect this scared goal.

In a recent essay Ralph Berry showed how multiculturalism in the West has led to no-go ghettos of apartheid. And, astonishingly, the elites have been inviting Third World Muslims into the West who also now live in no-go ghettos of apartheid. It seems to be the result of a completely benign warmhearted, sentimental, stupidity, but it is really often the result of the will to power of immoral and amoral elites who care less about the people. This is a total cruelty to the citizens of the West.
The elite have created this apartheid in the West even as the people have been increasingly rising up against them with populist-nationalism. The Deep State elite rule no matter what the people say, or do, or vote for. Even President Trump, who was the hope of the populists, has turned toward the globalism which he attacked to get elected.
It has been a very dirty subjugation of the West.
We will always have elites, but the hope is that the rising and saving of the West will be done legally and constitutionally, even if it takes a bit longer. We need to transform the unworkable cruelty which was been forced upon us, by retaining but amending the constitutional separation of powers and states toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with real human nature. That will be a long overdo action of real compassion. Then federalism, subsidiarity---with economic nationalism---can harmonize with a healthy nation of ethnostates.

Over time the Church set up universal principles, and that was good, emphasizing natural law and human nature, even though the definitions now need an upgrade. Modern culture is a wreckage, having excluded universal truths in favor of relativism, and having rejected god, religion, and universal truths and accepted instead individualism, gross hedonism, and relativism.
We do need a religious foundation for long-term stability and guidance, but the universal spiritualism of the church turned reality on its head by rejecting and blocking materialism, and by disparaging the vital evolutionary desires of materialism, even to the point of celibacy. More of that is not the way to reach real Godhood, although it can lead to an inward symbolic experience of God.
We evolve to Godhood in the material world and therefore the material world is sacred and precious. But material evolution needs evolutionary guidance from both religion and science. The relativity of values of modern culture, as well as the traditional religious blocking or misdirection of vital desires makes it far more difficult to reach Godhood.
When the church disproves of or even bans the genetic transformation and evolution of man by man, they hinder the path to real Godhood, and that is not a very religious thing to do. That is the opposite of affirming God.
The mission of theological materialism is to bring religion back by bringing forward the sacred view of materialism. Not the hedonistic, free-wheeling relativism of our modern atheistic materialism, but by affirming material evolution as the sacred means to Godhood.

President Trump abandoned the people who elected him, and we are seeing now that chutzpah alone is not enough to rule. I wish it was Trump's abandonment of populist-nationalism which made the left and the right go after Trump to bring him down, but it is only the same financial, academic and media elite of both the left and right who are bringing Trump down, and they promote globalism, multiculturalism, and open immigration. And this is happening even though Trump has flipped and joined the globalist dream.
Questions: Given the abandonment, will the populist-nationalism movement become weaker, will it become stronger, will fascist elements left or right decide that democracy can't save the West, will America continue to be led by cunning but stupid globalists until it falls apart under its own corruption, will the rise of America and the West come before or after complete collapse?
In any case, I hold to the path of the legal American constitutional separation of powers and states amended to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, with federalism and subsidiarity. Come what may, that is the healthiest possible future for an overpopulated America and the West, given that real human nature remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting...What happens to an egocentric president is less important.

"Of course I have ties to Russia. What's wrong with ties to Russia? That doesn't mean I'm a fan of Putin, or that I approve of Russia meddling in our election process. We don't have to be a fan of the people we deal with. I do know that journalists working for Russia have been very effective in promoting Russian interests, and Western journalists are a little jealous....You should understand, as my new foreign policy adviser Srdja Trifkovic recently pointed out, that now is the time to effect a pan-European entente that embraces the whole of the Northern Hemisphere, from the British Isles to Vladivostok to the Americas. We have an historic opportunity to pave the way for a genuine Northern Alliance of Russia, Europe, and the United States, as all three are facing similar existential demographic and ideological (primarily jihadist) threats in the decades ahead. In an uncertain and ever more brutal world, the Northerners must find a way of banding together, lest they be defeated separately..."
But President Trump did not say that. What he did do was change, almost over-night, from a nationalist to a globalist, which is the main surprise and difficulty in understanding his actions. I don't think Trump is psychotic but he is ego-maniacal and narcissistic and that is almost as difficult to understand as a psychotic who lives in an alternative reality.
As to the firing of FBI director Comey, all we can ask is that old question: who benefits most? We need to follow that question courageously to the answers---no-matter what the answer's reveal. Can we be that objective? Think of how neoconservative Leo Strauss’s philosophy seems to have in the end promoted an elite reflecting his own ancestry, which gave the lie to his stand against the power of historical tradition. But all humans are a lot more biased toward themselves, their kin, and their ethnic groups than even wise men fully realize.

Where can we start and stand? Healthy nations bond from within, citizens bond within states, localities bond within large cities. But the reality now is that much of the time we can count only on ourselves and our localities. Why is that?
The flat reality is that nations, states, cities, and localities bond together and harmonize best when they contain the same or related ethnic groups, who bond and harmonize together far better than territories with diverse ethnic groups who naturally compete.
People create cultures, cultures don't create people, and human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting, and the cultures we create reflect this. This reality is considered dangerously politically incorrect by the elites who now rule us, and who advance themselves and their own groups by promoting diversity. Bonding and harmony between American citizens now looks almost hopeless because we are so diverse, and every day becoming more diverse.
But where real bonding and harmony is most hopeful is in localities where ethnic groups are related. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates can develop from there, from localism, connected to our orignal democratic republic of federalism and subsidiarity. The constitutional separation of powers and states can be increased with amendments directed toward ethnic regions and states. We can even have regions that want to keep ethnic diversity within the same living space---ignorant of human nature as that is.
Looking realty in the face that is where we can start and stand. Radical revolution is not necessary.

Classical and Christen philosophers say that the contemplation of the good, the true and the beautiful is the completion of theology, I say it again, the completion . This, they say, can only truly come with the renunciation of power and the embrace of non-materialism. But it is often only a cover-up for the same old will-to-power. Their smugness is tiresome.
Buddha sits beneath the Bodhi Tree with legs crossed feeling great bliss contemplating the good, the true and the beautiful, because he has managed to completely stop all desires. But that is not real Godhood, it is physical, hedonistic, bliss. Real Godhood is a supermaterial object, or objects, evolved to in the material world.
Passions are not fetters, as Edmund Burke suggested, following the long religious/philosophical tradition, passions are led by the material Super-Id, or the material Spirit-Will, which has the goal of activating life to evolve to real Godhood.
The world is broken by the lust for power say the religionists, yes, but what of their will to power? The renunciation of the rings of power by Tolkien in his turning of Odinistic paganism on its head, is not the path to Godhood.
Material evolution needs to be refined toward the sacred goal, not denounced, rejected or blocked. Real Godhood must be won as all material things are won, through successful survival and reproduction. Celibacy, which is the highest behavior of religion, if successful, would mean no humans born, therefore no evolution to Godhood.
The future is more than the superior artificial intelligence of computers manipulated by, you guessed it, men with wills to power. But science, evolutionary science, can join with religion in refining the path toward real Godhood.
But the inward bliss of the gurus can be conservatively retained in the Inward Path as the first human glimpse of real Godhood, transformed and reached through the Outward Path of material evolution.

What can be a functional revenge against this destruction when the producers and promoters of this garbage control the Media?...The revenge has to be legal, constitutional, and conservative---so the fascist solutions, right and left, are out. We need to return to the views of our Founders while also amending the constitutional separation of powers and states to become an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, more in line with real human nature and real human behavior. Then the corrupt producers and promoters of MTV can move to the suicidal regions or states that allow this garbage, which would be far better than they deserve.
In the same way that I believe ethnopluralism is inevitable so also natural aristocracies of merit are inevitable, because they are based in real human nature, which remains 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, followed by individual selection.
Chilton Williamson reminds us (May 2017 "Chronicles") of how our second President John Adams believed in natural aristocracies, as Jefferson did, and how Adams affirmed a representative Republic and not universal suffrage. The House and Senate would check the power of a few and not advance their own power. The House would be for the "Many" and the Senate for the "Few," and the Senate would keep the House healthy. Adams also praised peace and harmony over mere efficiency and growth. He seemed to anticipate that modern man would be bourgeois... I believe we need to renew economic nationalism.
It can all be legal, constitutional, and deeply conservative. We can affirm while amending the Constitution. Radical revolution is not necessary and is to be strongly avoided.
Finally for the longest term health and success we need to transform, not reject, religion with evolutionary theology, where the Inward Path of traditional religion is retained but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood.
The question is, can we return to the views of our Founders while also amending the constitutional separation of powers and states to become an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, more in line with real human nature and real human behavior? I say we have no healthy choice but to try---we are going down now at an increasing pace. Our disharmonic diversity has made it necessary.

As substance creates form, not the other way around, so the particular is superior to the universal, as the object is superior to the definition of the object. This is contrary to most religion and philosophy.
We need to come back to real life, real objects, real material evolution, and then religion and philosophy can begin again.
We don't want to detach ourselves from the material "will" or from material life, we want to embrace the will and affirm life as the material will activates life to evolve toward Godhood.
The healthy balance is the opposite of Schopenhauer and the religious gurus: the healthy balance is two-thirds will and one third intellect. But it is not the brute will of Schopenhauer, not the godless will of Nietzsche, and not the brute Id of Freud. It is the Super-Id of theological materialism activating life to evolve to supermaterial Godhood.

"I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a non-human world and yet somehow survives intact, undivided, separate..." (Edward Abbey, "Desert Solitaire," quoted by Chilton Williamson).
For me "the naked self" should have read individual groups. Libertarians just can't seem to admit the secondary nature of individualism. The bedrock of human social behavior remains group-selection in successful survival, individualism only follows.
I see the merging as the non-human material world evolving life to supermaterial Godhood. That is where the next mysticism will come from, or something resembling it, while merging with science.
Then the substance of group-selection in real human nature can mold into the form of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where all groups can more naturally evolve---and probably without the "brutality" of Abbey's mysticism because it harmonizes with real human nature.
Thursday, May 04, 2017
If I say, substance over form, then the substance can shape the form. That could apply to style as well to deeper philosophy. For example, if religion, philosophy and art see the highest reality as non-material Ideas, then that substance will shape the forms of religion, philosophy and art.
When we rate the material reality of objects lower than the non-material Ideas or math equations that only represent the objects---as most religion and philosophy does---then we usually get over-complicated forms of religion and philosophy, with forms that end up trying to impress rather than illuminate, since there is no non-material reality.
Would the substance look classical in form if we define Godhood as attained by way of material evolution to a supermaterial Godhood? Not entirely if the classical Gods were only Ideas and not real material or supermaterial objects.
The real material object is primary in comparison to the secondary non-material idea which represents the object. Supermaterial Godhood is primary and the non-material inward Ideas that represent God are secondary.
It seems to me that with substance valued over form then the forms of religion, philosophy, art, and style can become clear, simplified, and reduced. That is what evolutionary realism points toward, as seen in theological materialism.

Camille Paglia viewed the ceaseless battle of nature (which she says is violent, irrational, untamable, and female) versus culture (aesthetic, logical, ever struggling and failing to tame nature, and, yes, male).
I could see Paglia's gendering images in relation to theological materialism, but I would adapt them a bit: the primal material as female gives birth to every cosmos, but within the primal material is also the material will, or spirit-will, as male, which activates material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, with many stops and starts along the evolutionary way.
I might compare these metaphors to the old myth/history of Odin migrating from Asia (thus he is of the Aesir) (proto-Scythian?), and when he reached the North Germanic region, which included Southern Sweden, a war took place between the North Germanic Vanir (old mixed Cro Magnon?) and the Aesir. Eventually a truce was created and a meld of the religions and cultures of the Vanir and Aesir was forged. The Vanir Earth Mother Nerthus, and her male consort, Ingwaz, then synthesized with the Aesir Sky Father, Odin, and his family, eventually creating the mature faith of Odinism, and its people.
But being conservative I work from the transformation of the Western Christian religion with theological materialism, where the material world evolves from the primal material, not God, toward real supermaterial Godhood. The Inward Path of traditional religion is retained but seen as a preliminary inward experience of the real Godhood reached through evolution---and this also can be synthesized more smoothly with modern science. In this way we could metaphorically harken way back to the very old Swedish Nerthus and Ingwaz, if we wanted to.

Both Joe Scarborough ("Morning Joe") and President Trump are vulgar salesmen interested in popularity ratings. But Joe and Mika suggested this morning that Trump may be insane.
Joe Scarborough flip-flopped from applauding President Trump during Trump's run to the White House to seriously suggesting that Trump may be insane. But Joe's ratings-directed flip-flop was not as damaging to the country as was Trump's flip from an economic nationalist to a neoconservative globalist.
What might be called insane is the political correctness of cultural Marxism, and Big Business, which have corrupted the whole world. But even that was crazy like a fox. It was a sinister grab for power by a very few over the many.
Populist-nationalism can't even count on the Trump's cabinet, the Generals too are globalist.
What we have is vulgar salesmanship, brinkmanship, chutzpah, with human beings and the planet on the edge.

Where are the dystopian novelists to satirize the present blocking of kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting human nature?
The state coercion written about by the dystopian and Utopian novelists is now seen in the policing of political correctness, which is the new more devious Western version of Marxism, called cultural Marxism. The attack has been not so much an attack on the leftist "human spirit and freedom" suggested by the dystopian novelists, but has been an attack on real human nature, which is essentially 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, followed by individual selection.
The ironic fact is, overwhelming coercion is not really necessary, and all powerful states are not required when human nature is allowed to be what it actually is. When human nature is not blocked human history shows us that empires fall and decentralize and become thousands of ethnostates, because that is the most natural configuration in harmony with real human nature and with ongoing evolution.
As to the "higher self" it seeks Godhood by way of biological evolution, and the "lower self" forms into an ethnopluralism of ethnostates which create the diversity and variety necessary for real human evolution to take place.
Where are the dystopian novelists to bitterly satirize the present blocking of kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting human nature? They seem to be eaten up like everyone else by the new coercion of political correctness.

I would like to see the conservatism of Russell Kirk and George Kennan expanded to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which I call deep-conservatism.
Kirk and Kennan were against nation-building while not seeking to replace Soviet communism with Western economic globalism. (see essay by Chilton Williamson Jr. in the May 2017 "Chronicles")
Kirk and Kennan were for preserving diversity and economic independence, but they did not directly expand that wisdom to the deep conservatism of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
Even with the ruling civic and political propaganda of cultural Marxism, modern liberalism and global neoconservative, human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting.
This naturally points conservatism toward and ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which could be harmonized with the conservative constitutional separation of powers and states, at least in the U.S., protected by deeper versions of federalism and subsidiarity.
Perhaps the universalism inherent in Christian conservatism keeps conservatives from including ethnostates within conservatism---ethnostates may have diverse religions.
I think theological materialism works well with deep-conservatism because traditional religions are maintained but their inward paths to the symbolic God Within are updated and transformed in the outward path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood.
Expanding conservatism to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, or deep-conservatism, would work harmoniously with this sacred evolutionary mission. Religion, materialism, science and politics could finally come together.

Basic human nature has not really changed biologically or genetically since hunter-gatherer times, but the ease of survival has changed, and that has much to do with the idiotic cultural changes we see today, such as the cultural Marxism of the academic world, feminism, gay rights, transgenderism, etc., which any honest person will admit have been tearing down Western culture, piece by piece.
The same applies to globalism and all the other rights popping up everywhere, which have had the luxury of denying real human nature because survival has been so easy. Easy survival has not much required the normal territorial protection inherent in men, or the nurturing inherent in women, which is conservative, and so we get people like the truly degenerate Kardashians.
It doesn't bother me to see women gain more power, but I do have a problem when feminism virtually ignores the biological and genetic origin of more than half of our social behavior. Real human nature remains 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, followed by individual selection.
It's the lies, the hypocrisy, the disharmony, the cultural foolishness of it all that bothers me. But then I always remember human history and how the natural structure, or leash, of real human nature eventually pulls us back to real human nature when tough times come. Why not keep and culturally promote real human nature and the social structures it naturally engenders even when survival is easy? We might then actually avoid Spengler's predicted cycles and spend our time rising in long-term evolution. Can we be that rational? I say yes, because it is both rational and instinctive behavior, Dionysus harmonized with, not fighting, Apollo.

Schopenhauer thought the will was not designed for purposeless imagination but the intellect was. I disagree with the direction of that valuation. The will (highest instincts) supersedes the definition of the so-called spirit, and activates all life including the intellect and imagination, that is, brain, body, and all the elements of life, including mathematical perception and artistic imagination. The question is why? The material will activates material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, that is the goal.
Schopenhauer was wrong in thinking that the intellect needs to free itself from the will to see objectively. The religious mystics made the same metaphysical error. The intellect is a tool of the will (which I once called the Super-Id) and rides along with the will as the will struggles to harmonize with outside natural evolution in the quest of life to evolve toward Godhood. Human culture then needs to harmonize with that sacred goal, it is even written deeply within human nature, and within the workings of the cosmos.

Like all empires the American empire has grown too big and diverse to function at all. So now we slowly sink, like a big ship with unfixable leaks. The fall can be prolonged by people like Donald Trump, or worse, who demagogue their way to power and make a few cosmetic fixes, but then end up corrupt or corrupted, and the empire remains too big and too diverse to save. There could also be invasions from other nations who kick down an already rotten door, which happened with the Romans.
But we could fall or break down in a healthy way if we would embrace the natural political configuration of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which could even be conservatively done by adapting the constitutional separation of powers and states. Ethnostates are naturally homogeneous and therefore are more orderly social structures, because real human nature remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and primarily group-selecting. That would be the sane and rational way to deal with the fall of our empire. But the Soviet Empire, for a recent example, broke into ethnostates without planning to, and we may also be too diverse, too big, and too corrupt to do it the rational way.
Nevertheless true leadership would provide reassurances during the fall that things will be better as we work toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which could be planned out and ready to go, protected by a federalism and subsidiarity that could work even in democratic republics.

Religion and philosophy made la-la-land, spiritual, non-material concepts and ideas real (they even made Ideas Gods) and they made the material world unreal, and we need to recover from that great spiritual blockade.
The "will" (highest instinct) is not inferior to the high intellect, as Schopenhauer thought, and the will is not merely an amoral power drive ruling the intellect, as Nietzsche thought. Schopenhauer thought the will needed to be overcome for the intellect to grasp eternal ideas, not unlike the religious mystics or Plato.
The superbiological will, here defined as will-spirit, spirit-will, or spirit-will-to-Godhood, is the material, not spiritual, drive within life (essentially defining life) activating material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, the zenith of successful survival and reproduction. The intellect is only activated by the will and cannot grasp what the sacred goal is as fully as the will can, although the will does not have merely an intellectual concept of sacred goals as the intellect does.
We can recover from the great spiritual blockade not by killing God and religion as Nietzsche did, and not by making a God of Ideas as Schopenhauer and the old mystics did, we can conservatively retain the old inward concept of the spiritual God as only the first glimpse of real supermaterial Godhood evolved to in the material world.

In trying to help Sheryl Sandberg deal with the great grief of losing her husband, her Rabbi told her to "lean into the suck." Try giving that advice to the Israel Defense Forces who like all good warriors must be stoic in victory or in defeat. With the founding of Israel the Jews finally learned that being arrogant in victory and cringing in defeat is dangerous for survival (although they seem to make an exception in endlessly moaning about the Holocaust). And the Rabbi must be a liberal---there is the typical clunky vulgarity of leaning into the suck which resembles the clunky vulgarity of modern poetry. And of course there is the standard sexual reference.
Well, leaning into the suck seems to have helped Sandberg individualistically cope, and I suppose that's good. But her book on the experience will influence millions. The gentleman's code, which was basically stoic, as Philip Mason put it, was a sub-Christian warrior chivalrous code without theology but derived from the ethics of Christianity and was merciful but not bewailing. Western civilization was not built on leaning into the suck, and it falls when it does.

I keep coming back to this object/subject argument:
Gurus and philosophers have been in love with their own minds, missing the reality of the forest outside of their minds for the unreality of the trees inside their minds. Religion and much of philosophy have been based in subjectivism and idealism, their gods and truths are mostly in their minds only.
But rejecting this subjectivism should not lead to "atheism" if we choose the real living object over the lala-land-subject. Godhood and the gods are not the gods of subjectivism and idealism, not the god experienced when all material desires are blocked, and also not the mathematical truth seen in the mind when all material things are left out of the picture.
Godhood and the Gods are material, or more specifically, supermaterial, and evolved to in the material world. Godhood is a material object, not a spiritual subject....But we can retain Plato's cave, Buddha's navel, and Christ's cross in the Twofold Path, if we see their insights and Inward Path goals as preliminary to the Outward Path of material evolution to real Godhood.
So walk out in the forest, if you can find one, and tell the material trees that they are released from their great spiritual blockade....If odd stares bother you do it quietly.

Pat Buchanan, in many ways a hero of mine, is too pessimistic about America. He appears to think it's all over for us, that its too late, that future demographics and global business have doomed us, and we will become a leftist anti-white state.
I have not heard Mr. Buchanan talk about a possible ethnopluralism of ethnostates within the U.S., built upon the constitutional separation of powers and states. Perhaps it's some sort of Catholic bias toward a new Holy Christendom, I don't know.
I think he is missing the political configuration that harmonizes best with real human nature, which he admits is ethnocentric, group-selecting, and nationalist. Perhaps he can't see how that works when you add universal Christianity.
Maybe he thinks an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is not traditional enough. But it is the base of all traditionalism! Of course, it will require much work to bring forward against deep enemies, but it gives optimism at least, and it is based in the reality of human behavior and could work with our conservative Constitution.
A recent Time magazine columnist featured a mother emasculating her son in the process of emotionally praising his graduation from college. This is the same magazine that many years ago featured a mostly positive article on sociobiology and the biological origin of much of social behavior. The mag now has a feminist editor who has increased its downward trend toward cultural Marxism, which fewer and fewer people read.
The columnist tells us about the time her "skinny" son sat crying because he lost his school supplies the day before his first day at middle school. Or how he would crawl into her bed and say "let's hold hands." Then she sentimentally recalls how she taught her son to water a plant, write a thank-you note, and iron a shirt. Did she not have even a twinge that she was emasculating her son? Or has her feminism gone so far as to believe that it is only moral to emasculate your sons? Unfortunately she seems to be a typical modern single parent---if she has a husband he does not appear to be much involved with his son, or his wife.
She tells us, and of course her son, that she hopes he will never die for his country. I think of those Spartan mothers who told their sons to come home victorious or come home dead on their shields. And I think of how all failing empires end up hiring mercenaries to protect a population too emasculated to protect themselves. We do it now, hiring super-masculine SEALs etc. The bitter irony is that modern liberal feminists secretly find the mercenaries sexier than their husbands and sons, who they have emasculated.

Yes, horses are real but the "species" concept of horses is not "real," species is the secondary unreal definition of the real. Why is that so hard for philosophers to admit?
Ideas may be "timeless" but they are not real. Timeless Ideas are not the most "objective" knowledge of the world we can have.
The most "objective" thing is the material or supermaterial object, not the Idea of the object.
The thing-in-itself is not an Idea it is a real material or supermaterial object, or objects.
Plato and later Schopenhauer went as far as to say that Ideas exist in reality independent of the "subject," they said ideas are not "concepts" but are part of nature awaiting discovery.
No, the discoveries waiting to be discovered are material and supermaterial objects, with ideas only secondarily defining them.
Sometimes I think the philosophers demoted material objects only for the purpose of trying to save their non-material spiritual view of God and Truth.
They could have saved God and Truth by seeing them as real material/supermaterial objects evolved to in the material world.

I am thinking here of the libertarianism of billionaire philanthropists, globalism, the Big Media, and the academic world.
Aside from the damage done by globalism to the health and sovereignty of nations, we have billionaires like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg giving millions to their preferred causes, and the money is often tax deductible. They can then shape policy far more than the ordinary citizen can. And the policies they pursue are almost always irresponsibly libertarian, which is at bottom nihilistic, amoral, and superindividualistic, with a leaning toward limousine liberalism. Can't you just hear the always unmodulated voice of Gates, or the pipsqueaking of Zuckerberg as they preach to us?
Then their is the influence of the Big Media directing our culture far more than school or religion. Awhile back they promoted the wisdom of Bob Dylan and now it's people like Kanye West, who the kids quote because nothing else is presented to them. Shakespeare and Burke are out. And this stupidity is backed by the the academic world who have rejected Anglo-American classical culture and replaced it with the nihilism and relativism of libertarianism leaning toward cultural Marxism.
Was this cultural destruction purposefully destructive or just plain stupid? It's both. As I say here often, it is not enough to dismantle the "bureaucratic, managerial, corporatist, and globalist state" as real conservatives want to do (and as we thought President Trump would try to do). But assuming these things can be done, what then? We have to allow real human nature to adjust the American constitutional separation of powers and states toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Real culture will then return for all groups and not merely for billionaire philanthropists, globalism, the Big Media, and the academic world, who have destroyed Western culture.

The Inward Path of spiritualism is essentially the same, wherever it originated---so what is next? (reblog from September 28, 2016)
Which came first the Hindu Chakra Correspondence Chart or the Kabbalistic Tree of Life? The Tree of life may have come to the Jewish people via the Ancient Egyptians, but the Egyptians might have gotten it via the Indian Vedas or proto-Vedas, at the beginning of the Egyptian dynasties as a result of early invasions from Eurasia, or points further north.
Conservatism, not radical revolution, can be sustained as change takes palace. This is what the great St. Thomas Aquinas did when confronted with the superior philosophy of the Ancient Greeks. This did not turn him away from affirming a more intellectual version of Christianity, which although now fading still lives on after many centuries.
The point here is that the Inward Path of traditional spiritualism is essentially the same whichever place it originated from, that is, the abstract definitions of physical experiences from ascetic disciplines to find the God or Father Within which were not considered a material or physical experience, but in realty are a material and physical peak experience.
This insight on the Inward Path may at first seem to reject Traditionalism, but it does not in seeing these first experiences of God as preliminary and leading to the understanding of the real Godhood reached through material and supermaterial evolution. This is the Twofold Path of theological materialism and the Evolutionary Church which can carry Traditionalism into the future, uniting religion, philosophy and science.
What activates this sacred process? Within material life exists the endless activation toward endless survival and reproductive success whose zenith is supermaterial Godhood. In theological materialism this activation is defined as the Spirit-Will or Will-Spirit, including the word "spirit" only to conservatively relate to traditional religion, but the Spirit-Will is entirely material or supermaterial.
"Objectification" is wholly material and related to material evolution, with absolute objectification and truth defined as the material and supermaterial objects called Godhood. It is an endless evolution toward higher and higher Godhoods, with occasional new primal material beginnings, even as other evolutions continue at various levels.
If there is an "essence" or an unchanging thing it seems to be the activation within life toward ever evolving life, here called the material Spirit-Will. This essence is not God it seeks Godhood and is always unfinished.
The Twofold Path in theological materialism, the Involutionary and Evolutionary, connect the traditional inward path of the symbolic experience of the God or Father Within---attained by blocking material desires---with the Outward Path of material evolution toward real Godhood---attained by fulfilling desires in the evolutionary path. We can conservatively retain the traditional inward Mass of Sacrifice along with the evolutionary Mass of Evolution or Joy.

The main competition today is between ruling globalism and wannabe nationalism. That's what Brexit, Trump and Le pen are about. And that explains why Russia, Iran, Syria and even North Korea are the big enemies: they refuse to bow to the globalists.
But Putin acts like a nationalist and probably dreams of imperialism (his intellectuals like Dugin do). Iran wants worldwide Islam, and North Korea has the old Communist world utopia in mind, so they aren't real nationalists. President Trump has been openly morphing from a nationalist into a globalist, but giving symbolic nods to try to retain the nationalists who elected him.
To those of us (few) who see populist nationalism as but the first step toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates---in harmony with the constitutional separation of powers and states----these are steps backward. Is this best we can expect? It seems so---but the competition will continue. We do have real human nature on our side which instinctively and rationally seeks nationalism, ethnostates, and localism.

Since Plato philosophers have exaggerated the importance of the "Idea." Schopenhauer said that the Idea was "even the whole thing in itself, only under the form of representation." This is absurd. It's like saying a person's name is as important as the person.
These thinkers define God and Truth in the same way, as an Idea only, even though they try to cover this by saying that God and truth are real but are spiritual and not material. That still defines God and truth as airy nothing. It encourages atheists to reject God and religion and philosophers to reject truth and conservatism.
Godhood and truth are smeared at the expense of real material life, which is in reality the only vehicle to evolve to real Godhood: we evolve to Godhood in the material world and Godhood is the supermaterial zenith of material evolution. The tragic joke is that the gurus and philosophers often use ideas and religion for the very purpose of gaining the material power they smear.
We do need religion to ground civilization deep enough for very long term successful survival, reproduction and ongoing evolution, as human history has shown us. But to do this religion, philosophy, and material life need to be exhumed from the death verdict of these airy gurus and supercilious philosophers.
Sunday, April 16, 2017
The great metaphysical error began when the spiritual was separated from the material, which caused all the other false dualities. The religious gurus and then Plato saw God and truth as a non-material Idea and not as a living material object, or objects.
The conceptions of "objectivity" and "subjectivity" grew out of this false duality, with objectivity being seen as a non-material thing superior to subjectivity and the subject.
I would rather just take the old practical non-intellectual definition of object and subject, with the object defined as the thing seen and touched, and the subject as the thing examined by an object.
The subject is in the mind of the object and there is no duality here. Things and Godhood are only secondarily represented by ideas, ideas are not God or things.
The object needs to come out from under the shadow of the subject, not as an airy spiritual nothing but as a real material thing.
Godhood and truth are not a non-material Idea, they are a living object, or objects, evolved to in the material and supermaterial world, as described in theological materialism.
Saturday, April 15, 2017
There is a large negative bias in religion and philosophy right up to the time of Schopenhauer and beyond, where suffering is thought to be more powerful than happiness. This metaphysical error resulted in advocating the total will-less state, or the desireless state, where both happiness and suffering will vanish, and where supposedly the most "objective " knowledge can be found.
Reality is the opposite, but does not reject religion. Human life is only secondarily activated to be successful in survival and reproduction or happy. We are activated from within to materially evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, defined as the zenith of success at the zenith of evolution. The sooner we fully understand our fate, and the sacred goal of life, the sooner we can work with and not against life itself and the sacred goal of Godhood.
We can even conservatively retain the old negative ascetic view of the inward God or Father as the first glimpse of the real Godhood reached through material evolution in the Outward Path. Even science can join religion.

It's almost unbelievable to see how the corrupt liberal media loves Trump now as he bombs away. The paleoconservatism, nationalism, and populism of his friend Steve Banner---as well as the people who elected Trump---have been backhanded and we return to the global imperialism that ruined America and the West in the first place. Has such an open betrayal of friend and country ever been before? Even Trump's huckster buddies in New York City must be amazed.
But paleoconservatism never carried things deep enough anyway. Paleoconservatives, as well as Trump and his buddies, don't have the balls to see or say that we require an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in America, which can harmonize with the constitutional separation of powers and states. We can trade with the world as long as the world doesn't mess with us. We can protect the whole with an unbeatable military. That is the way paleoconservatism, nationalism, and populism will actually work along with real human nature over the long term.

I am a patriotic American, I am of Swedish and German ancestry, I much appreciate Edmund Burke, but I am very much against empires in general, and I don't at all condone the condition of the poor during the time of the British feudal aristocracy. But like other Americans I am impressed with the great old British aristocracy. They had the time, the power, and the wealth to develop superior genetic qualities, a superior taste for the best quality clothing, and really great looking homes. These are the elements of the empire that interest me now, even if what is left of the aristocracy is sort of goofy. American WASPS are goofy now too.
The great old British aristocracy began with the Henry Tudor court. As Charles Spencer pointed out, "at its peak in the late 1870s, 80 percent of the country’s acreage was owned by 7,000 families, principally those of the 431 hereditary members of the House of Lords—the dukes, marquesses, earls, viscounts, and barons of the United Kingdom. " And they all bred together.
The first world war was disastrous for the British aristocracy. While one in eight British soldiers perished during the four-year conflict, the ratio was one in five for the nobility. But beginning back in the 1880s, "the export of grain from the Americas, followed by the arrival in Europe of refrigerated meat, halved the agricultural income of the aristocracy in Britain. Then taxation increased at the same time. Death duties were introduced in 1894 at 8 percent. By 1939 these had reached 60 percent. In 1948 they were levied at 75 percent on estates worth more than £1 million." During the years between the World Wars, roughly 230 mansions were destroyed. (I almost said that was worse than losing the aristocrats.)
The WASPS in America copied the British in more than politics. The genetics, the clothing, the great homes of the British aristocrats interested generations of Americans. During the war the upper class British officer was four inches taller than the lower class soldier, and his IQ showed an even greater disparity. And it was not all due to better nutrition or better schooling, it was biological, it was genetic. The most successful dynasties "were those that read the code, accepted its terms, and fused it into their DNA." And we don't need empires to do that.
It is astounding to see the present power of the enemies of the biological origin of differences in humans: cultural Marxism and feminism come first to mind. Yes, culture is important in human behavior but biology isn't even mentioned.
It is astounding to me how this unreality came to dominate America and the West. It shows that humans are either very stupid or the media and the academic world are very powerful---or both. In Europe it is even illegal to say that there are biological differences between humans!
This means that if we want to bring reality back from the unreality of the West we have to go strongly against the media and the academic world. That is the front to watch to see real change---no movement there, no change.
For a short time it looked like President Trump would go directly against the media and the academic world, but not now. Trump has apparently turned into another person from the Trump who campaigned for president, moving from populist-nationalism back to the global imperialism that ruined the West in the first place (minus some of the evil trade deals)...It's good to see Putin of Russia taken down a bit, he is more imperialist than nationalist and he has always hated the West, but to do so the way Trump did it, by lying to Putin and the world about his political philosophy to get elected was nasty and ignoble---(this assumes he had a discernible political philosophy.)
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
It appears that even President Trump doesn't know what Trump will do next, but for now he has turned directly against the foreign policy that he constantly demagogued about to get elected. The right, that is, both the bourgeois right and the alt-right, were Trumped. So what is to be done?
The far right is like a general who will not retreat in the face of defeat. And the bourgeois right has accommodated and yielded to the resentment of minorities by allowing cultural Marxism to prevail almost as much as the modern liberals. Trump has accommodated and yielded too, and probably became wealthy in doing so.
Nietzsche thought that resentment drove religious and cultural behavior among minorities, especially if they were once enslaved. We see it in the Jewish people and with the American Blacks. The far right has never really understood that a people who were once enslaved are ever after hypersensitive to any kind of dominance or criticism.
Hateful racial smears against Jews and Blacks by the alt-right plays right into the hands of people who in fact largely control the cultural ethos, including the big media. Shouting about creating another imperial one-race empire never works, the rest of the world gangs up on whoever tries. In any case, all empires devolve back to ethnostates.
The reality is that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the realistic way to deal with all racial and ethnic differences, and it has to be constitutional, legal, and without racial hatred or defamation against any racial group. All races deserve their own ethnostate. Good fences make good neighbors because human nature remains primarily group and ethnic selecting, which is the real source of all altruism.

Utopia's can be impractical or unrealistic schemes of perfection, but dystopia's can be just as unrealistic in seeing only human misery, oppression and disease. I think we can have continued human evolution without Huxley's "Brave new World" of totalitarianism. Marx and Hitler are not the future if we understand and affirm real human nature and its political implications.
Equality has to be a suspicious concept if not defined as distinctly different groups and states having an equal chance to evolve, ideally with aid from strictly objective international research centers regarding human evolution. Group-selection and ethnic selection remain the central unit of survival and reproductive success, and are deeply contained within real human nature, even if the prevailing cultural Marxism blocks this knowledge.
Human evolution in the past took place within an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in harmony with real human nature, and can again. Federalism and subsidiarity can protect the whole, in nations and even in democratic republics. If we want to continue evolving toward real Godhood some things have to be preferred to other things, in that sense we have to "discriminate." But that does not require a Brave New World of totalitarianism, it requires an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
As to the wisdom of conservatism, in America we can conservatively retain the constitutional separation of powers and states updated to an ethnopluralism of regions and states, to better harmonize with real human nature, and better provide for our material evolution toward Godhood.
Let's see a few novels on this future, more realistic than the utopian/dystopian novels we have seen so far.
