Expanding conservatism to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, or deep-conservatism
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.
