Totalitarians of any sort need to see the old wisdom of the separation of powers and states
Totalitarian systems like Islam, communism, fascism, etc---and now increasingly including Western- liberal-democratic-cultural Marxism---and all expecting total acceptance, do not harmonize with real human nature, which remains kin-centered and ethnocentric, and should be leading to the separation of powers and states, and even to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
So the totalitarian temptation is a false and dangerous temptation that soon destroys the private and social health of a people, like drugs or candy, only worse. Short-term thinkers and impatient youth, and even some Christian perspectives, are prone to totalitarianism, which looks simple and efficient but is like cutting off the hands to allow the feet. Totalitarians of any sort need to see the old wisdom of the separation of powers and states.
Will they? Or are these natural cycles which imperfect man must always repeat? I tend to agree with Wilmot Robertson's politically incorrect challenge ("The Ethnostate"1992) to Spengler's cyclic view of history, where Robertson suggested that we could halt and reverse the decline of America by transforming the socially destructive aspects of ethnic or race competitions, which destroy nations and empires, into developing socially constructive ethnostates. I continue to believe this will be done in the future.
