Why and how to replace the gross Empire and return to a Constitutional Republic
The dangerous fantasies of cultural Marxism and neoconservatism led to the creation of the gross American empire and away from the Constitutional Republic of our Founders. This was largely due to blocking or distorting our understanding of real human nature.
When human nature is understood as being largely grounded in the biological origin of much of social and cultural behavior, as the evolutionary sciences have taught us, and when human nature is understood as remaining very much kin-centered and ethnocentric, then the constitutional separation of powers and states harmonizes very well with human nature.
The conservative "moral imagination" of the great Russell Kirk, alas, was grounded in a non-materialism and spiritualism which distorted human nature and morality almost as effectively as the fantasies of cultural Marxism and neoconservatism, which led to the gross Empire.
But conservativism, at least deep conservatism, does not have to lose God, religion, morality or the moral imagination when Godhood and morality are understood as attained through the evolution of material life to supermaterial Godhood. This sacred evolution relates well with the constitutional separation of powers and states because human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered and ethnocentric, as evolution proceeds naturally.
The next stage in dismantling the gross empire is to see the constitutional separation of powers and states as leading to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, still within the constitution as envisioned by the Founders, perhaps with only a few amendments. Then human nature, religion, culture, and government can be in realistic harmony over the long-term.
