Is there no democratic means to curb the corrupt media?...The last thing the media wants is a fascist dictator but they may eventually get one if this revolution of the media and the academic world continues.

I think even Orwell and Huxley would have been surprised at how the corrupt Big Media and the academic world have managed to define real human nature as biased, oppressing, and unjust. It has been a transvaluation of reality which even Nietzsche would marvel at.
We have been critical of president Trump since he flipped from being a populist-nationalist to a neoconservative, but now as the corrupt media is increasingly driving our president mad with fake news, you only feel like defending him. They poke at him and goad him, knowing he is narcissistic and super-defensive about any slight.
An example this morning was Joe Scarborough and his new fiance Mika, who originally supported Trump, looking into the camera aware that Trump was watching them and cruelly attacking Trump knowing full well it would drive him crazy.
Is there no democratic means to curb the corrupt media?...The last thing the media wants is a fascist dictator but they may eventually get one if this revolution of the media and the academic world continues.

I suppose politics was never very honorable, but what we have now is an ignoble mess.
What if...the leaks regarding Jared Kushner's contacts with the Russians did not come from the White House or from our intelligence services but came from the Russians, disguised of course as not coming from them. Why? Payback for Trump's duplicity in openly humiliating Putin following Trump's surprise turn away from supporting Russia and his move toward the neoconservative enemies of Russia. Putin lost face and is going to get Trump for that double cross.
A thought anyway.
Patriotism is more than conserving abstract ideas about love of country; patriotism is more deeply about celebrating the biological and genetic past and future. Conservatives rarely mention this, which means that conservatives tend to celebrate ideology almost as much as the "progressives," who virtually hate any mention of biological or genetic conservatism.
When the Founders spoke of preservation they were not thinking of a nation of distinctly different and competing ethnic groups, as we have today. The Founders seem to have taken it for granted that America was mainly Anglo-Saxon.
But the Founders were wise enough to create a constitutional separation of powers and states that can accommodate an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, perhaps without them being aware of it. This wisdom regarding human nature can allow the deepest conservatism, which is conserving our different and competing biological and genetic heritages in an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, as well as conserving the abstract ideas about our nation and patriotism---if we see it, and do it.

Feminists and modern liberals (cultural Marxists) have all but succeeded in defining maleness as "bullying." This is contrary to real human nature, but that does not stop this moronic movement. We can be sure, however, that real human nature, and real life, will stop this, eventually. Meanwhile, as you protect your daughters from the decaying culture, don't forget to protect your sons, even if the schools and the Media are against you.
The American Founders affirmed the separation of powers thinking mainly of class differences in old England. This was long before the ethnic differences which now clash within both nations. But the constitutional separation of powers and states was deep enough and wise enough to be able to adapt to this too.
The beauty of the constitutional separation of powers and states is that it underlines real human nature, which cannot for long be denied in the cultures we create. The conservative biologically origin of human nature remains kin-centered, gender-defined, ethnocentric, group-selecting, and as nationalistic as it has always been. But the sociobiological way to save conservatism is not mentioned by conservatives or by liberals, other than as something politically incorrect and even evil.
The constitutional separation of powers and states can affirm an ethnopluralism of ethnostates under the constitution and accommodate the ethnic differences which are now, most naturally, tearing us apart. Can we deal not only with class differences but ethnic differences? If we cannot we are doomed to increasing civil disturbances and eventually forced separations. It's better to do it rationally and legally.

As several thinkers have pointed out (Charles Murray, Patrick Deneen), the heartland is no longer wholly the home of conservatism and traditionalism, the heartland now exists in blighted communities, broken families, destroyed by drugs, etc., while the liberal elites living on the two coasts, ironically, can better afford solid family life and live almost in conservative communities, even though the same pornography and the same decadent culture has gone mainstream for us all, thanks mainly to the Big Media and the corrupted academic world.
Where did conservatism go? First of all, way back around the 1950's, at the beginning of the modern conservative movement, the foundation of real conservatism was purged from "conservatism" by people like William Buckley. That is, the largely biological origin of much of human social behavior, from which real conservatism rises, was defined as politically incorrect, bigoted, and even evil. Modern conservatism began to die even as it was beginning. But the conservative biologically origin of human nature remains kin-centered, gender-defined, ethnocentric, group-selecting, and as nationalistic as it has always been. But the sociobiological way to save conservatism was not and is not mentioned by conservatives or by liberals, other than as something politically incorrect and even evil.
As I wrote here yesterday, the reality of real human nature points toward a deeply conservative political/cultural solution which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates within our democratic republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states. Different ethnic groups can then politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to in their own regions and ethnostates. We would retain federalism and subsidiarity to balance the states together, because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world. And economic nationalism could thrive.
That is where real conservatism is and where it will return to, if we want to conserve anything.

A real American recovery has not been allowed because real human nature has not been allowed within the solutions to why we aren't recovering. If allowed real human nature could shut down the individuals and groups who have gained power by promoting cultural Marxism on the left and amoral libertarianism on the right, which have been heavily promoted by the controlled Big Media and the academic world.
Real human nature consists of gender differences, age-grading, marriage-making, hierarchy, ethnocentrism, religion-making, group-selection, and other typically traditional human traits. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against real human nature, such as cultural Marxism or amoral libertarianism, but cultures are always, eventually, pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature, as E. O. Wilson so brilliantly and courageously pointed out many years ago.
The people have been taught, or brainwashed, by the Big Media and the academic world into thinking that all people are the same, that distinctively different groups can and should live together in the same multicultural territory, and love one another equally and universally. The people have been taught that the real human nature, defined above, is politically incorrect, and even evil behavior.
Americans from both the right and the left elected Donald Trump as President because he at least hinted at restoring what seemed instinctively healthy for the people. But Trump's talk of recovery turned out to be mainly demagogic salesmanship, and he has turned now to the same neoconservative amoral and immoral libertarianism of past politicians. But even if he had kept on the path that Pat Buchanan first traveled, of real economic nationalism and traditionalism, that would not have brought a lasting recovery.
The reality of real human nature points toward the political/cultural solution which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the constitutional separation of powers and states. Different ethnic groups can then politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to in their own regions and ethnostates. But we would need to retain federalism and subsidiarity to balance the states together, because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world.
This is the political/cultural structure most in harmony with real human nature, and the answer to why we aren't recovering. This can be done without radical revolution, which does more harm than good...Perhaps the same solution can apply to Europe, which is falling apart more rapidly than America, due to the same causes.

Occult Kabbalistic/Gnostic knowledge, the Traditionalist School, or follower-groups like the Freemasons, are not affirmed but if retained at all are transformed in theological materialism and in the coming Theoevolutionary Church.
The old Kabbalistic term “Adam Kadman” can be defined as "God" experienced in the Inward Path (think of the Vedas, Buddha, and Christ). In reality Godhood is attained in the active Outward Path of material evolution toward supermaterial Godhood. This is called the Twofold Path in theological materialism, which conservatively retains the old Inward Path but transforms it in the Outward Path.
Any “Tree of Life” symbolism, if still retained, would need to redefine the symbolic expulsion of Adam from Eden as being not caused by eating the “forbidden fruit of knowledge” but for ignoring or being ignorant of knowledge of the material, not spiritual, evolution of life toward real Godhood, and ejected from the garden for devolutionary cultural and biological trends.
Real Godhood is not defined as the Kabballistic/Gnostic/Traditionalist School/Masonic attaining of the Soul/Father/God-Within, and Godhood is not demonstrated by creating artificial life, whether by computer, robot, or man. Godhood is attained through the real "alchemy” of material evolution all the way to supermaterial Godhood.
Who has that occult knowledge? That is the real evolutionary alchemy of changing material life into the gold of supermaterial Godhood. Seeking the Soul-Within---which was perhaps developed for warriors in some proto-Indo-European homeland and carried to the middle east---can be a distraction, a subterfuge, or a Great Spiritual Blockade away from the real divine mission, which is to materially evolve all the way to supermaterial Godhood.
This becomes as much an exoteric as an esoteric divine mission, joining science and religion. Separations, variety, and rational territoriality are necessary to evolution, and meritocracies are inevitable, but all groups need to share evolutionary knowledge---the world always gangs up on and stops the advance of any selfish occult group seeking to advance themselves alone.

I don't think we should dwell on the "fallen" state of man, or how we are "flawed" relating to God, which I believe is based on mistaken metaphysics and a distorted view of religion and human nature.
The reason for hope is based in real human nature which remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting, and which always eventually brings the recovery of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates after the inevitable fall of empires.
To recover, conservatives in America need not turn toward radicalism but toward building upon the constitutional tradition of the separation of powers and states to allow the natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where real human nature can flourish.
Then the federalism and subsidiary of our wise Founders can protect the whole, without the Big State rule of corrupt elites who care little or nothing at all for the people. Real human differences can than actually flourish without trying to jam all groups together in one territory of unworkable and socially disruptive "multiculturalism."
The real passion and hope of religion should not be blocked by the rejection of material desires--- thought in essence to be evil---in the pursuit of non-material spiritualism, since it is material evolution which brings us to real supermaterial Godhood.
It is this positive and hopeful view of life and human nature which can be guided by scientific/religious research into how best to evolve toward real Godhood, while living within natural ethnostates affirmed by real human nature.

In the glut of Big Media hate against the slaughter of innocents by the monsters in Manchester England, the old saying that "they are over here because we are over there" should not be forgotten. The neoconservatives and globalists who continue to go about the world treating the world like expendable cattle, now includes President Trump, even though he promised the people who elected him to clear those Western monsters from the swamp.
Apparently the West cannot stop the neoconservatives and globalists any more than we can stop Islamic terrorists. The neoconservatives, who joined with the globalists, were originally concocted by Gertrude Himmelfarb, Irving Kristol, and other New York intellectuals whose spawn have now slithered back into power do to Trump's megalomaniacal buffoonery.
Expect more monsters until real leaders for the West come forward.

I have found conservatives more practical and realistic than progressives, but when conservatives go on to congratulate themselves on not being "ideological" or on avoiding pie-in-the-sky formulations, I think of their heaven as Utopian and ideological as the Marxist goal of one day being "more than we really are."
Progressives make a big mistake in not paying attention to tradition, which follows, or should follow, real human nature. But conservatives make a mistake in not paying enough attention to the Enlightenment, which has gradually and scientifically refined the traditional definition of human nature without rejecting it---at least the science of sociobiology has done this.
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. How do ideologies and religions harmonize with real human nature and the biological origin of much of cultural behavior?
Progressive tend to believe that human beings are completely malleable for virtually any social behavior, whereas conservatives believe that human nature is determined to seek non-material spiritual things. The God of conservatives is non-material and spiritual, but the "God" of progressives is also a non-material Idea, and is therefore "spiritual."
Theological materialism uses "progressive means for conservative ends", as someone put it, which is a good definition of conservatism. Conservatives brag that a complex ideological future is not in our hands in answer to progressives who say it is. The reality is some of both. Traditional ideas of Godhood need to be joined with the evolutionary sciences: we evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood, and our aiding in that sacred mission is the synthesis of conservatism and progressivism.

Prominently displaying a very big butt has become very trendy, at least since the Kardashians. It seems mainly to be the preference of black men and women, but white women have been flocking to the cult.
Sex for sex sake, promiscuity, sexual liberation, the constant use of the F-word in normal conversation, etc. etc., this began at least as far back as Freud who more or less thought that "sexual inhibitions" from traditional views on sex cause neurosis. Now we have the popular trend of women, including young women, loudly dressing the way prostitutes dress.
All this degeneration is promoted by the Big Media, the academic world, radical feminism, etc. etc., and only fundamentalist Christians (and hated Muslims) dare to speak against it. Secular writers don't want to look like prigs or prudes so they won't touch this politically incorrect subject.
All the values and virtues that actually hold families and societies together, gender differences, monogamous marriage-making, family, patriotism, etc. have been attacked by modern popular culture, and so our societies have been falling apart.
We have to at least fight against the popular trend of women dressing and acting like prostitutes, but we don't want to go back to the way women are treated in, say, Saudi Arabia, or in the ultra-orthodox circles of Israel. Are we too far gone to even be against smutty popular trends?
We thought President Trump might move things in this conservative direction (in spite of his beauty pageant hanky-panky) but he is only busy enhancing the same old amoral and immoral global imperialism.

Schopenhauer, the idealist, thought that the universal Idea of great art provided greater beauty than nature actually provided or failed to achieve.
I find that only half right. The evolution of material life toward Godhood in nature provides life greater than art can provide. Yet at the same time art can supply or affirm that Idea of the sacred goal of life with the affirmation of the sacred, which all great art shares.
More essential and universal than history itself, and more essential than universal Ideas, is the activating material Spirit-will-to-Godhood within every cell of the body. This activation does not change throughout history and is a real universal essence. The Idea of this essence is only secondary to the material essence itself which activates life to evolve to Godhood.
The spirit, soul and mind were thought to be '"spiritual," not material, but they are really the highest aspect of the material mind beyond most material drives, and they too are activated by the universal, essential, material Spirit-will-to-Godhood, in conjunction with outside natural selection and evolution.
It seems to me that great art can return with this affirmation of the sacred supermaterial goal of life and evolution.

Contrary to the old idealists I think the "will" is objective not subjective. The idealists and the old religious and philosophical gurus in effect considered the will evil and something that should be blocked so as to have more "objective" religious and aesthetic experiences.
But those religious experiences seem to be the subjective product of the mind blocking the desires of the body (which Buddha and Christ called for) with the resulting hedonistic bliss defined as Godly, or higher objectivity.
It seems highly arrogant of human beings to think that they are experiencing real Godhood or high objectivity because life, including human beings, must evolve far beyond the human species to reach real Godhood.
We can "experience" the material will within but that is not God, it seeks Godhood by activating life to evolve toward Godhood. This requires not blocking but paying attention to the will---here called the material spirit-will-to-Godhood---and then helping the material evolution to Godhood as best we know how.
The will is the objectively-oriented and Godhood-oriented activator of life toward absolute objectivity and Godhood. But there probably is no absolute objectivity or absolute Godhood because there appears to be no beginning and no end to evolution, only many starts, stops, new beginnings, and even many Godhoods along the way.

I listen to classical music and jazz mostly, but one of the things I used to like about country music was that country singers were willing to compete with rock and soul music (which I also like). But then big city shyster producers and promoters invaded county music and Nashville and now we have country singers doing second-rate versions of black rap.
Be that as it may, human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group selecting, which naturally leads to competition between ethnic groups. But the Big Media and the academic world have managed to define natural ethnic competition as "racism," or even as Hitlerism.
Then the insidious modern liberals follow this attack on real human nature with expanding versions of "affirmative action," or racial preferences for blacks over other ethnic groups. White men became evil racists if they objected to watching the increasing dominance of white culture by other ethnic cultures. That is where the Alt-Right taunt of white men as cuckolds came from.
I don't believe in the superiority of one race or ethnic group over another, but I do believe in racial and ethnic differences (backed by science), which should be applauded and not condemned. None of us should be forced to accept the destruction of our own culture.
Who benefits from this destruction of Western high and low culture? Modern liberalism as cultural Marxism is a front for the will-to power and dominance of individuals and ethnic groups over other ethnic groups. I see an ethnopluralism of ethnostates as the only healthy and rational way to deal with this natural competition which always tears nations and empire apart.

Schopenhauer thought genius can work independently of the end-seeking will, and that philosophical objectivity---and also great art as well as Buddha's bliss---could be achieved that way. But why would we want to be independent of the will, or the instincts within every cell of the body, if the will seeks to activate material life to evolve to Godhood? Schopenhauer thought genius could be objective by being independent of the will, but the will or spirit-will, which is a material activation, seeks the highest truth (objectivity), goodness, and beauty by way of material evolution.
I would rather call the will the Super-Id, but Schopenhauer thought of the will as a super-monster (Freud followed him in this). Civilizing the beast means philosophically and culturally helping the material will (the old word was spirit) to attain its sacred goal as best we can. Although material life probably evolves to Godhood eventually even without our help, we can speed up the process as our knowledge increases by removing obstacles to the various levels of Godhood. That is the next religious mission.
Sunday, May 14, 2017
Schopenhauer, along with the religious founders, thought that all "willing" and all desires stem from lack, from deficiency, that is, from suffering, and so material life was degraded and made negative.
That was a mistaken and unfortunate philosophy of life and for humanity, because life evolves to real Godhood in the material world of desire and suffering.
The will (here called the Spirit-Will-to-Godhood although it is entirely material) is inherent and instinctive in every cell of the body, and it is the positive, not negative activation of material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, which is the zenith of success in survival, as well as the success and reward of religion.
The negative view of life of Schopenhauer and the religious founders was designed mainly to experience the God or Father Within, which could be blissfully experienced (or real "objectivity" realized according to Schopenhauer) by blocking material desires which were thought to lead only to suffering.
Nietzsche almost recovered from that great spiritual blockade of Schopenhauer, but he saw no goal to the will other than a relativity of power, and no Godhood-end to his will-to-power. So Nietzsche tried to kill God and religion as being useless and harmful, or as being the will to power of weaklings.
That was not necessary. The will or spirit-will of material evolution activates life to evolve to Godhood in the material world. Suffering is overcome not by neutering desires but by fulling desires, that is, not fulfilling hedonistic desires but desires which enhance and affirm our upward material evolution toward Godhood.
Restored religion can join with science in this inherent and great evolutionary mission of life, and philosophy and culture can reflect this scared goal.

In a recent essay Ralph Berry showed how multiculturalism in the West has led to no-go ghettos of apartheid. And, astonishingly, the elites have been inviting Third World Muslims into the West who also now live in no-go ghettos of apartheid. It seems to be the result of a completely benign warmhearted, sentimental, stupidity, but it is really often the result of the will to power of immoral and amoral elites who care less about the people. This is a total cruelty to the citizens of the West.
The elite have created this apartheid in the West even as the people have been increasingly rising up against them with populist-nationalism. The Deep State elite rule no matter what the people say, or do, or vote for. Even President Trump, who was the hope of the populists, has turned toward the globalism which he attacked to get elected.
It has been a very dirty subjugation of the West.
We will always have elites, but the hope is that the rising and saving of the West will be done legally and constitutionally, even if it takes a bit longer. We need to transform the unworkable cruelty which was been forced upon us, by retaining but amending the constitutional separation of powers and states toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with real human nature. That will be a long overdo action of real compassion. Then federalism, subsidiarity---with economic nationalism---can harmonize with a healthy nation of ethnostates.
Thursday, May 11, 2017
President Trump abandoned the people who elected him, and we are seeing now that chutzpah alone is not enough to rule. I wish it was Trump's abandonment of populist-nationalism which made the left and the right go after Trump to bring him down, but it is only the same financial, academic and media elite of both the left and right who are bringing Trump down, and they promote globalism, multiculturalism, and open immigration. And this is happening even though Trump has flipped and joined the globalist dream.
Questions: Given the abandonment, will the populist-nationalism movement become weaker, will it become stronger, will fascist elements left or right decide that democracy can't save the West, will America continue to be led by cunning but stupid globalists until it falls apart under its own corruption, will the rise of America and the West come before or after complete collapse?
In any case, I hold to the path of the legal American constitutional separation of powers and states amended to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, with federalism and subsidiarity. Come what may, that is the healthiest possible future for an overpopulated America and the West, given that real human nature remains kin-centered, ethnocentric and group-selecting...What happens to an egocentric president is less important.

"Of course I have ties to Russia. What's wrong with ties to Russia? That doesn't mean I'm a fan of Putin, or that I approve of Russia meddling in our election process. We don't have to be a fan of the people we deal with. I do know that journalists working for Russia have been very effective in promoting Russian interests, and Western journalists are a little jealous....You should understand, as my new foreign policy adviser Srdja Trifkovic recently pointed out, that now is the time to effect a pan-European entente that embraces the whole of the Northern Hemisphere, from the British Isles to Vladivostok to the Americas. We have an historic opportunity to pave the way for a genuine Northern Alliance of Russia, Europe, and the United States, as all three are facing similar existential demographic and ideological (primarily jihadist) threats in the decades ahead. In an uncertain and ever more brutal world, the Northerners must find a way of banding together, lest they be defeated separately..."
But President Trump did not say that. What he did do was change, almost over-night, from a nationalist to a globalist, which is the main surprise and difficulty in understanding his actions. I don't think Trump is psychotic but he is ego-maniacal and narcissistic and that is almost as difficult to understand as a psychotic who lives in an alternative reality.
As to the firing of FBI director Comey, all we can ask is that old question: who benefits most? We need to follow that question courageously to the answers---no-matter what the answer's reveal. Can we be that objective? Think of how neoconservative Leo Strauss’s philosophy seems to have in the end promoted an elite reflecting his own ancestry, which gave the lie to his stand against the power of historical tradition. But all humans are a lot more biased toward themselves, their kin, and their ethnic groups than even wise men fully realize.

Where can we start and stand? Healthy nations bond from within, citizens bond within states, localities bond within large cities. But the reality now is that much of the time we can count only on ourselves and our localities. Why is that?
The flat reality is that nations, states, cities, and localities bond together and harmonize best when they contain the same or related ethnic groups, who bond and harmonize together far better than territories with diverse ethnic groups who naturally compete.
People create cultures, cultures don't create people, and human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting, and the cultures we create reflect this. This reality is considered dangerously politically incorrect by the elites who now rule us, and who advance themselves and their own groups by promoting diversity. Bonding and harmony between American citizens now looks almost hopeless because we are so diverse, and every day becoming more diverse.
But where real bonding and harmony is most hopeful is in localities where ethnic groups are related. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates can develop from there, from localism, connected to our orignal democratic republic of federalism and subsidiarity. The constitutional separation of powers and states can be increased with amendments directed toward ethnic regions and states. We can even have regions that want to keep ethnic diversity within the same living space---ignorant of human nature as that is.
Looking realty in the face that is where we can start and stand. Radical revolution is not necessary.

What can be a functional revenge against this destruction when the producers and promoters of this garbage control the Media?...The revenge has to be legal, constitutional, and conservative---so the fascist solutions, right and left, are out. We need to return to the views of our Founders while also amending the constitutional separation of powers and states to become an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, more in line with real human nature and real human behavior. Then the corrupt producers and promoters of MTV can move to the suicidal regions or states that allow this garbage, which would be far better than they deserve.
In the same way that I believe ethnopluralism is inevitable so also natural aristocracies of merit are inevitable, because they are based in real human nature, which 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.
Chilton Williamson reminds us (May 2017 "Chronicles") of how our second President John Adams believed in natural aristocracies, as Jefferson did, and how Adams affirmed a representative Republic and not universal suffrage. The House and Senate would check the power of a few and not advance their own power. The House would be for the "Many" and the Senate for the "Few," and the Senate would keep the House healthy. Adams also praised peace and harmony over mere efficiency and growth. He seemed to anticipate that modern man would be bourgeois... I believe we need to renew economic nationalism.
It can all be legal, constitutional, and deeply conservative. We can affirm while amending the Constitution. Radical revolution is not necessary and is to be strongly avoided.
Finally for the longest term health and success we need to transform, not reject, religion with evolutionary theology, where the Inward Path of traditional religion is retained but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood.
The question is, can we return to the views of our Founders while also amending the constitutional separation of powers and states to become an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, more in line with real human nature and real human behavior? I say we have no healthy choice but to try---we are going down now at an increasing pace. Our disharmonic diversity has made it necessary.

"I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a non-human world and yet somehow survives intact, undivided, separate..." (Edward Abbey, "Desert Solitaire," quoted by Chilton Williamson).
For me "the naked self" should have read individual groups. Libertarians just can't seem to admit the secondary nature of individualism. The bedrock of human social behavior remains group-selection in successful survival, individualism only follows.
I see the merging as the non-human material world evolving life to supermaterial Godhood. That is where the next mysticism will come from, or something resembling it, while merging with science.
Then the substance of group-selection in real human nature can mold into the form of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where all groups can more naturally evolve---and probably without the "brutality" of Abbey's mysticism because it harmonizes with real human nature.

If I say, substance over form, then the substance can shape the form. That could apply to style as well to deeper philosophy. For example, if religion, philosophy and art see the highest reality as non-material Ideas, then that substance will shape the forms of religion, philosophy and art.
When we rate the material reality of objects lower than the non-material Ideas or math equations that only represent the objects---as most religion and philosophy does---then we usually get over-complicated forms of religion and philosophy, with forms that end up trying to impress rather than illuminate, since there is no non-material reality.
Would the substance look classical in form if we define Godhood as attained by way of material evolution to a supermaterial Godhood? Not entirely if the classical Gods were only Ideas and not real material or supermaterial objects.
The real material object is primary in comparison to the secondary non-material idea which represents the object. Supermaterial Godhood is primary and the non-material inward Ideas that represent God are secondary.
It seems to me that with substance valued over form then the forms of religion, philosophy, art, and style can become clear, simplified, and reduced. That is what evolutionary realism points toward, as seen in theological materialism.

Camille Paglia viewed the ceaseless battle of nature (which she says is violent, irrational, untamable, and female) versus culture (aesthetic, logical, ever struggling and failing to tame nature, and, yes, male).
I could see Paglia's gendering images in relation to theological materialism, but I would adapt them a bit: the primal material as female gives birth to every cosmos, but within the primal material is also the material will, or spirit-will, as male, which activates material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, with many stops and starts along the evolutionary way.
I might compare these metaphors to the old myth/history of Odin migrating from Asia (thus he is of the Aesir) (proto-Scythian?), and when he reached the North Germanic region, which included Southern Sweden, a war took place between the North Germanic Vanir (old mixed Cro Magnon?) and the Aesir. Eventually a truce was created and a meld of the religions and cultures of the Vanir and Aesir was forged. The Vanir Earth Mother Nerthus, and her male consort, Ingwaz, then synthesized with the Aesir Sky Father, Odin, and his family, eventually creating the mature faith of Odinism, and its people.
But being conservative I work from the transformation of the Western Christian religion with theological materialism, where the material world evolves from the primal material, not God, toward real supermaterial Godhood. The Inward Path of traditional religion is retained but seen as a preliminary inward experience of the real Godhood reached through evolution---and this also can be synthesized more smoothly with modern science. In this way we could metaphorically harken way back to the very old Swedish Nerthus and Ingwaz, if we wanted to.

Both Joe Scarborough ("Morning Joe") and President Trump are vulgar salesmen interested in popularity ratings. But Joe and Mika suggested this morning that Trump may be insane.
Joe Scarborough flip-flopped from applauding President Trump during Trump's run to the White House to seriously suggesting that Trump may be insane. But Joe's ratings-directed flip-flop was not as damaging to the country as was Trump's flip from an economic nationalist to a neoconservative globalist.
What might be called insane is the political correctness of cultural Marxism, and Big Business, which have corrupted the whole world. But even that was crazy like a fox. It was a sinister grab for power by a very few over the many.
Populist-nationalism can't even count on the Trump's cabinet, the Generals too are globalist.
What we have is vulgar salesmanship, brinkmanship, chutzpah, with human beings and the planet on the edge.

Where are the dystopian novelists to satirize the present blocking of kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting human nature?
The state coercion written about by the dystopian and Utopian novelists is now seen in the policing of political correctness, which is the new more devious Western version of Marxism, called cultural Marxism. The attack has been not so much an attack on the leftist "human spirit and freedom" suggested by the dystopian novelists, but has been an attack on real human nature, which is essentially 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 ironic fact is, overwhelming coercion is not really necessary, and all powerful states are not required when human nature is allowed to be what it actually is. When human nature is not blocked human history shows us that empires fall and decentralize and become thousands of ethnostates, because that is the most natural configuration in harmony with real human nature and with ongoing evolution.
As to the "higher self" it seeks Godhood by way of biological evolution, and the "lower self" forms into an ethnopluralism of ethnostates which create the diversity and variety necessary for real human evolution to take place.
Where are the dystopian novelists to bitterly satirize the present blocking of kin-centered, ethnocentric, and group-selecting human nature? They seem to be eaten up like everyone else by the new coercion of political correctness.
