How ethnopluralism can save America and find common ground with conservatism
The constitutional separation of powers and states in the U. S. can gradually and legally move toward an ethnopluralism of states, protected by federalism, and not ruled by Big Government.
We can affirm the benefits of market capitalism applied to economic nationalism, with tariffs on foreign products, etc., while not affirming a state-sponsored capitalism, or the libertarian version of capitalism which limits everything to an abstract commodity.
This can return culture and politics to real human nature, which remains traditionally 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 philosophy of theological materialism can find common ground with Christianity in the Twofold Path, where the Inward Path to the experience of the God or Father-within is included but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood. This can join religion and science.
This is not effete modern liberalism with its foolish fantasies of human nature, and this is not the fascism of the far right or the far left. Radical revolution, whether left or right, is mistaken. Innovation needs be tied to existing traditions and customs which evolved over human and even prehuman time.
I know of no better and deeper solution to the present fall of the West.
