Affirming while amending the Founders; radical revolution is not necessary
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.
