Avoiding Spengler's cycles by affirming real human nature
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.
