Pat Buchanan, in many ways a hero of mine, is too pessimistic about America
Pat Buchanan, in many ways a hero of mine, is too pessimistic about America. He appears to think it's all over for us, that its too late, that future demographics and global business have doomed us, and we will become a leftist anti-white state.
I have not heard Mr. Buchanan talk about a possible ethnopluralism of ethnostates within the U.S., built upon the constitutional separation of powers and states. Perhaps it's some sort of Catholic bias toward a new Holy Christendom, I don't know.
I think he is missing the political configuration that harmonizes best with real human nature, which he admits is ethnocentric, group-selecting, and nationalist. Perhaps he can't see how that works when you add universal Christianity.
Maybe he thinks an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is not traditional enough. But it is the base of all traditionalism! Of course, it will require much work to bring forward against deep enemies, but it gives optimism at least, and it is based in the reality of human behavior and could work with our conservative Constitution.
