The Utopian schemes of both the materialistic Left and the spiritualistic Right
The Paleoconservatives like to say that there are no political solutions to cultural problems, and Marxism says that there are political solutions to cultural problems. These differences relate to the grounding of the Right in a non-material spiritualism and the Left in a complete materialism, with different ultimate goals. But both the goals of the Left and the Right involve Utopian solutions to cultural problems: the Right seeks a non-material Utopian God and the Left seeks a classless Utopian world of complete equality. Both the Left and Right leave out the sacred and ultimate goal of the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood, which actually connects or synthesizes the two world views.
People create politics as much as they create culture, and both politics and culture depend on the natural traits, the genetic traits, of the different ethnic groups who create the politics and the culture. Often distinctly different ethnic groups do not assimilate well with one another due to their natural differences more that their politics, which is negatively reflected in the civil disruptions of modern societies. That is, societies have been trying to be multicultural with distinctively different people living in the same space and told to all get along according to the Utopian schemes of both the materialistic Left and the spiritualistic Right.
This all points toward the political/cultural solution of the ethnopluralism hypothesis, often written about here. It is a conservative transformation---not revolution---which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups can politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to according to their own natural traits while living in ethnostates within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the already existing constitutional separation of powers and states. We need to retain federalism and balance because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world. This is a sociopolitical or political/cultural structure based in a real non-Utopian view of human nature and Godhood.
