More on the conservative/sociobiological fusion
The fusion of nature (tradition, precedent) and nurture (reason) in sociobiology, may be a clearer way to view the fusion of libertarianism and conservatism. The twin studies were an ingenious way to tell the difference between nature and nurture by studying twins separated at birth living in different environments. Our social behavior is far more genetically determined than both the left and right have thought.
Conservatism and sociobiology have suggested to me that the realistic way to find unity within divisions is by upgrading the constitutional separation of powers and states envisioned by our wise Founders to include an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where real human nature can flourish. We remain kin-centered, ethnocentric, marriage-making, gender-defined, and other traditional norms, which can be fused with the reason of sciences such as sociobiology.
The philosophy of the left looks selfish and short-sighted in comparison.
