The arrogance, presumption, and chutzpah of the Chimeras of modern liberalism are an ugly thing to behold


The civil war in America which the Evil Media is now openly promoting against the healthy protective measures of President Trump is the latest attempt to force the monstrous Chimeras of modern liberalism on our people.

The Chimera in Greek myth was a fire-breathing monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail. In biology, as the dictionary says, this would be an organism containing a mixture of genetically different tissues, formed by processes such as fusion of early embryos, grafting, or mutation.

Is there anything worse to behold than the modern Chimera we have been increasingly witnessing of a white pop entertainer from the northern suburbs trying to imitate a black inner city southern accent while awkwardly displaying gang signs? Almost as bad a thing to behold is a black from the inner city trying to imitate a white suburban English professor by exaggerating every round word pronounced. This is what we have done to our people in the vain attempt to melt everyone together into a melting pot which does not melt.

The arrogance, presumption and chutzpah of these Chimeras of modern liberalism or cultural Marxism are an ugly thing to behold, which are being forced on a brainwashed people who tend to be self-effacing and altruistic, even to the extreme degree of the Swedish people inviting massive numbers of foreign refugees into their county who are now preceding to destroy Sweden.

The most humane, sane, and practical thing to do is to allow the natural development of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates where people can be who they are. States and regions could be established legally in the United States due to our constitutional separation of powers and states, but it may require a few constitutional amendments. Distinctly different people simply do not assimilate or melt other than on the fringes where monstrous Chimeras appear.

The Media is now the Evil Media


Evil is defined as intending to harm, malevolent, morally corrupt. I will now call the Big Media the Evil Media, which has gone to war with President Trump. Local Media has followed.

The Evil Media branch in Hollywood is full of popular freaks who do not realize they are freaks.

Freedom of the press has become license to destroy the West.

The Evil Media is consciously---or stupidly unconsciously---promoting civil war, or racial war.

I have considered myself hip to the Media, but even I am stunned.

Signs of the bi-polar world forming


Based on the seven countries banned from sending refugees to the U.S., at least temporarily, which includes Shiite Iran and Syria, and does not include Saudi Arabia or Egypt, it looks like we may have the bi-polar world I recently speculated about, with Russia, Iran, (Syria), China etc. on the Eastern block, and the U.S., Israel, and Sunni Arab states etc. on the Western block. If Putin is not already awakened to this bi-polar world he will be now.

Is not this the world that Kissinger tried to prevent by trying to destabilize any Eastern block? It may be too late for the better plan presented by Srdja Trifkovic in "Chronicles," January 2017... "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.  Trump has 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"...

Can't we even control our borders to keep out people who wish to destroy us?!


People and the cultures they create are certainly not all the same. As the ethnic groups change the country changes. But this common sense is blocked by the propaganda of the academic world and the Big Media.

President Trump is now having trouble even stopping---at least for a time---immigration from countries which breed terrorists who hate America. He is blocked in his efforts by the propaganda of the academic world and the Big Media who support the creation of a nation of distinctly different ethnic groups and religions who naturally do not get along together.

Most college educated people believe they have risen above irrational ethnocentrism and tribalism, but that is like saying they have risen above human nature, which remains, kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, among other traditional things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.

These are the things that define us as human. The ground of patriotism comes from people voting according to who they are and where they live, which is why decentralization is now the political action most needed in a nation increasingly divided by distinctly different people with distinctly different agendas.

I believe the only sane political structure in our crowded world eventually leads to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which is based in real human nature. I say again, the ground of patriotism comes from people voting according to who they are and where they live, and this requires decentralization. How far we are now from this sanity if we can't even control our borders to keep out people who wish to destroy us.

Is President Trump just in time to try to save the nation from decline and fall, or is he the last desperate losing effort of a nation hopelessly divided by our past stupid, suicidal immigration policies?

The difference between the Alt-right and the General-right


The General-right---think of Fox News---spends a lot of time denying and attacking racism, whereas the Alt-right often acknowledges that real human nature tends to be racist.

The problem with these positions is that the General-right denies the ethnocentric nature of real human nature, and the Alt-right tends to be supremacist about their own ethnic group while denying or denigrating all other ethnic groups.

The way out of this is to affirm an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where some sort of federalism can protect independent ethnostates and assure the freedom of our natural ethnocentric and group-selecting human nature. This balanced structure could even be accommodated by the separation of powers and states in the U.S. Constitution, with perhaps a few amendments.

As to the left, the General-left or the Alt-left, they live in a fictional la la land where people are considered all the same and equal throughout the world---although minorities are preferred---and they think the world would be peaceful and always happy if not for the evil right putting up borders and boundaries.

Do we owe our European brothers a thank you for martyring themselves?


It made me proud to be an American today watching the swearing-in ceremony Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Remains Wary of Waterboardingfor our new Defense Secretary Mattis, and then the signing of executive orders to begin protecting our national borders from massive immigration, as well as the order to rebuild our military---but not to be used for going abroad in search of monsters.

Do we owe our European brothers a thank you for martyring themselves to open borders, etc, showing America what not to do? We will have enough trouble dealing with almost half the country who are like brainwashed zombies marching around objecting to saving their own country and their own lives.

All reality is material or supermaterial including Godhood


All the organs of the body developed not only to propagate life but to evolve toward the zenith of material evolution, which is Godhood, as described in theological materialism.

The trouble started when the oldest pagans thought the dream world was real but not material, which led to the downgrading of materialism, and eventually led to the blocking of material drives by religious mystics seeking to experience a non-material God.

The "spirit," "soul," consciousness, and mind are all material. Godhood is defined as the zenith of spirit, soul, consciousness, mind, and the zenith of material evolution.

The subject is as material as the object, the subject is only the knowing part of the object, and both are material. But the object ranks higher than the subject which defines it, not the other way around, although they are always together and connected.

If there is an "essence" it is the activation within life of the material Spirit-Will or Will-Spirit, which must deal with the material world it finds itself living within, as it seeks to activate material life, and itself within life, to evolve toward Godhood.

There really are no dualities, but there are levels of material evolution culminating in Godhood. This should be good news for joining science and religion.

Is the thing lost without the principle of the thing?


People and things exist whether they are defined or not

Even good thinkers have assumed that the thing is lost without the principle of the thing, almost as a given. But the principle is only the definition of the thing, the thing exists whether the principle is defined or not.

Godhood works that way too, and virtually everyone defines God as a spiritual principle, definition, or experience, and not as a material or supermaterial Thing or Things.

I believe a conservatism or tradition that accepts Godhood---which has been dying at least since the Enlightenment---can prevail only if Godhood is transformed from a non-material principle to an actual material or supermaterial thing-in-itself, or highly evolved object or objects.

The Twofold Path in theological materialism retains the old non-material principle or experience of God or the Father in the Inward Path, while affirming and transforming the Inward Path in the Outward Path of material evolution toward the supermaterial object, or objects, of real Godhood.

Conservative founders of both religions and secular governments knew that laws and principles need to be simple, few and constant, and need to be retained while being transformed in the long march through human institutions.

Life, religion, culture need not fade away on earth, as they have been doing. And we can eventually move out into the cosmos as we evolve toward Godhood. A new sacred Mass can be written affirming the Twofold Path.

Nature is in a constant state of flux: why?


There is always rising and falling, devolution and evolution: why? This flux goes on not only on earth but across the cosmos: why?

Religion and philosophy have at bottom been objectless, full of empty spiritualism or empty definitions of nothing, since their religious God, their philosophical Being, is not material and is not of this world. Well then, of which world? 

God need not be lost. Godhood needs to be rescued from those who define God as objectless and non-material. All is grounded in real objects, even dreams and fantasies. It is a material force which seeks supermaterial Godhood by way of supremely successful survival and reproduction.

Why this hatred of the material? Why this deprivation of humanity and existence? It must be connected to the will to power of those who seek to block materialism with spiritualism, which is a very material thing to do.

Life follows purpose first before cause and effect. "A force must know its destination before it begins its movement." (Ted Chaing). Religion but also science needs to define the biology and physics of this force.

It is a fight to the death for real life but it is not merely defined as a war of all against all, it is really the evolution of all life toward Godhood. For example, a way can be found to reconcile irreconcilable differences between naturally competing human groups, such as an ethnopluralism of ethnostates protected by a light federalism.

We are driven by internal necessity but it is not the necessity to block material life so as to see God. Life is driven by the internal necessity of material life evolving toward supermaterial life, defined in theological materialism as real Godhood.

To perceive/know reality


In defining reality this would mean capturing, at the same time, emotion/intuition/art/religion along with reason/empiricalism/science. The idea is that these things alone do not capture reality as well as they do as combined or synthesized perceptions.

I am not here talking about looking through one person's unique eyes, I am looking for a "reality" that combines inward and outward human life in general, a reality that could find a general balance and resolve tensions between perceptions in the inward and outward lives we lead. The hope would be that the wiser and healthier we are the better we are at seeing and balancing perceptions of actual reality.

In combining the inward and outward perceptions we are applying the essential inward activating drives of life (after first recognizing them) combined with the natural outside environment and evolution, as described in theological materialism. This can lead to another kind of psychology, or evolutionary therapy, as well as another kind of religion/science.

As I have written here before, I am not merely looking for the opposite of the ego, the contrary elements of our psyche, because a Jungian androgynous balance is not the goal. The great goal of the activating material/biological Spirit-Will, which I have also called the Super-Id, is the goal that lies beyond us, beyond even human consciousness, at the zenith of material evolution to Godhood. Whatever parts of our psyche that would seem opposed to the natural direction of the Spirit-Will-to-Godhood need to be understood, synthesized, and balanced with natural outside evolution.

Continue to Go After the Big Media President Trump!


Even conservatives are upset because they say president Trump is spending too much time criticizing the Big Media, they want him to concentrate on "more important things." I strongly disagree. The Big Media are probably more responsible for the decline and decadence of the West than government, the business world, the academic world, or religion. That is power! So President Trump, please continue to go after the Big Media. If you can find legal ways to curb their nefarious power than do it! Otherwise they will make you move the way they want you to, or destroy you and your plans.

Ask what is a thing for


James Wilson described the Thomistic precept which is contrary to postmodernism, that life finds the shape or the form suitable to it. What is good seeks to become actual, seeks to become the limit of its life form. That is very good thinking, but I would say the limiting feature to life is the natural world of evolution. And the goal of evolution is not a non-material God, which would be saying that the goal of life is non-life. Real Godhood is attained through material evolution to supermaterial Godhood. The highest good is not non-life but super-life. And there is no limit to material evolution.

Post-modernism sees no goal, no telos in life other than an amoral power drive without a goal. Post-modernism sees no fixed truths, and sees nothing but endless freedom without any moral or material limits. We are condemned to freedom one arrogant philosopher said. Theological materialism sees things otherwise.

I believe we have to ask what is a thing to know what can be known about a thing. Life is for natural evolution toward Godhood and is limited by the natural world we are born into. The central purpose of life is to evolve toward the highest success in being represented in the world of survival and reproduction, which could be called eternal representation, or Godhood. Whether life attains Godhood or not, this is the central definition of the force of life itself. This sacred purpose within life must work along with the exigencies and ups and downs of natural evolution...And there is no end or beginning to this evolutionary purpose, as difficult as this is for us to accept.

On the women marchers against President Trump in the decadent liberal cities


The women marchers may not need Aretha Franklin to tell them how to spell R.E.S P. E.C.T., but if they don't want to be called over-emotional brainwashed fools they do need knowledge of sociobiology---the biological origin of much of our social behavior.

Knowledge of real human nature has been successfully blocked by the culturally Marxist academic world and by the decadent Big Media since at least the 1960's, so not only are these marchers ignorant of sociobiology and real human nature, their ponytail-wearing fathers were too. Many of these women even brought their daughters to the march brainwashing another generation of women.

If a woman can remain a culturally Marxist feminist after absorbing such works as "Human Nature," or "The Social Conquest of Earth," by Edward Wilson, or if that is too difficult then some shorter explanation of sociobiology as in Wikipedia, then she really is a brainwashed fool. 

Trump is far from perfect but many of his political ideas reflect and affirm real human nature and real human beings.

Now we will have father-government rather than mother-government


The mommy democrat/liberals who want to nurture everyone to death have been bested by daddy republican/populists who want people to nurture themselves. Both president Clinton and Obama were raised in mommy-led households without a father and they absorbed the psychology of nurturing at their mother's knee----and perhaps also a little bias against manly things in general.

We will see how many of the manly goals of president Trump can be attained. I wish President Trump could do something Big about curbing the power and influence of the Big Media, while still respecting freedom of the press. Propaganda-sickened Americans need a little protection from the man-hating she-tiger---mommy is not too happy about daddy taking back the TV remote.

But seriously, we don't want this battling of the sexes, we need mommy and daddy working together offering their distinctively different, biologically-based, ways to live in the world.

What is the natural state of nature?


If there is "purity" or "order" in a pre-civilized state of nature it would probably contain an absence of any human attempt to go against the natural order with cultural or political schemes which only man seems capable of attempting.

There is not a lack of conflict or distress in the pre-civilized or civilized natural order, which has been suggested by people like Rousseau and Marx, but what there is is evolution taking place and a natural selection of living things in always changing environments and biology.

Schopenhauer and Nietzsche came closer to the natural order in imagining a world of will and power, but Darwin was even closer to defining the natural order in both the pre-civilized and civilized states. But Darwinism was not a religious philosophy even as it was evolutionary science at its best.

Life follows purpose first before cause and effect. "A force must know its destination before it begins its movement." (Ted Chaing) Science must define the biology and physics of this force.

I believe the natural order most essentially contains the evolution of material life toward supermaterial Godhood, with many starts and stops along the way. And once attained, Godhood continues evolving, with no ending and no beginning.

That is the natural state of nature which our civilizations and our cultures and political structures need to find closer harmony with, as seen in theological materialism.

Turning around this big falling mess of an American empire


Americans have been "educated" by a Marxist department of education, and by the narcissistic, hedonistic, hook-up culture of the Big Media. Hollywood has found a way to make big money and trash traditionalism at the same time.

Students of the 1980's became the professors and leaders of America. But the "culture wars" of the 1980's were really genetic wars. A largely Northern European and WASP leadership, which was more or less conservative, was replaced by non-Northern European "progressives" who were really cultural Marxists.

Blacks were given billions of dollars of help to advance themselves and advance "equality" but instead they sought superiority, which is actually natural given that human nature remains very much group-centered and ethnocentric.

We cannot count on the Media or the academic world to turn around this big falling mess of an American Empire, and we can't count on much help from a brainwashed people, even though there is a populist core of good instincts. Nevertheless, conservative and not radical means to save the West is the preference.

This probably means another slow march through the institutions, along with a return to the constitutional separation of powers and states, eventually leading to the long-term solution of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in line with real human nature.

How theological materialism discontinues the traditional theological downgrading of life in general and women in particular


There is almost a hatred of women throughout traditional asceticism in seeking the inward God or Father Within by way of blocking material desires, especially the reproductive drives. Mother nature is lost touch with and materialism is attacked because sexuality needs to be controlled or blocked in order to have the upper peak experience of the God Within. Religious values grew primarily out of this ascetic valuation.

Theological materialism brings back respect for materialism, for women, and for reproduction, since we evolve to real Godhood by way of ongoing material reproduction. Modern genetic engineering needs to be considered part of this religious development of evolution. Materialism is something to affirm, upward evolution is considered a high virtue and a sacred value because it is the basic means of attaining real Godhood. The ascetic experience of the inward God can be retained but is seen as a symbolic experience of what Godhood may be like when we evolve to real Godhood in the material world.

The answer to the hatred of the material world is not to radically declare, as Nietzsche did, that God is dead. Materialism is apotheosized in theological materialism by the sacred evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood. Emotions return, life returns, and religious philosophy goes back to nature itself as it should do---and modern science can be included.

Can Trump transform from hyper-individualism to group-orientation?


The biggest psychological and philosophical change that Donald Trump has to personally make is from hyper-individualism to group-orientation. Sociobiology has been helping to reveal the biological origin of much of social behavior, and group-selection remains the main unit of successful survival and reproduction, as it has always been, and individualism, though creatively important, is successful only in the short term.

Trump's "group" is basically "America First" and "economic nationalism," and if Trump can actually transform his hyper-individualistic, free-enterprising, deal-making personality into being more group-orientated (not merely his nuclear family) then his constant self-centered Tweets which are getting him in so much trouble will recede. Can Trump make this change at his age? Perhaps the office itself will naturally help him.

The Middle East and the favorite daughter


Given that real human nature remains ethnocentric, with group-selection as the main unit of selection, the most natural and rational political configuration is an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. This means that the state of Israel has a right to exist for the Jewish people, but this also means the same for the Palestinian people. This also suggests that Israel has to stop its expansionism, even if it has a religious idea to do so. Islam also has a religious idea to expand.

People create ideas first, ideas don't create people, and the ethos of a person and their environmental circumstances relate to the ideas they propose. You have to admire the courage of Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son in law, in taking on the Middle Eastern file for Trump where so many diplomats have fallen. Can we assume some sort of natural competition (even if underground) between Trump and Kushner for the admiration of Trump's daughter? Chutzpah has conquered prudence in the Middle East, will it conquer again, or is Kushner headed for a fall?

If Kushner succeeds, if the expansion of Israel continues, and if the entire world can't stop them, then it seems to me that the world will have to take another look at those conspiracy theorists.

A Vital Idea: Purpose Before Cause and Effect


George McCartney writes about Pierre De Fermat (Chronicles, Jan 2017), a 17th century mathematician who speculated that life follows purpose first before cause and effect. This is a vital insight which is expanded in theological materialism.

The central purpose of life is to evolve toward the highest success in being represented in the world of survival and reproduction, which could be called eternal representation, or Godhood. Whether life attains Godhood or not, this is the central definition of the force of life itself.

This sacred purpose within life must work along with the exigencies and ups and downs of natural evolution. And there is no end or beginning to this purpose, as difficult as this is for us to accept.

Ted Chaing writes: " A force must know its destination before it begins its movement." Science must define the biology and physics of this force, which I have called the Will-Spirit or Spirit-Will-to-Godhood. Then science could actually join religion.

What is the next great sacred mythic theme for the next great civilization?


I believe the next great sacred mythic theme for the next great civilization is the evolution of material life to supermaterial Godhood which will require the cooperation of a long-term culture and civilization.

This is the material/supermaterial Godhood of material life and evolution, this is not the spiritual non-material idea or ascetic experience of God. That first gnostic/religious glimpse of God can be retained but transformed in theological materialism. A great art and great culture, a great total civilization can rise out of this religious/scientific, sacred, mythic worldview, worthy of man and future man.  The great Christian and scientific Western ethos can be synthesized with the sacred goal of life evolving in the material world on earth and out in to the cosmos toward supermaterial Godhood.

This sacred materialism is a world theme but it is also a deeply Western theme, and the defense of the West remains a principle concern. The East, led by Russia, has for the present, sunk back into the Traditionalist School which basically hates materialism, aggressively hates the West, hates science, but nevertheless seeks another form of orthodox imperialism. That is not a healthy theme for future man or future civilization, and it will not bring us to real Godhood.

Transforming the negative/positive of traditional religion


"Emptiness" or sunyatu and Nirvana of Buddhism, and the Father Within and Heaven of Jesus are similar in being a negative/positive sort of hedonism. We can feel the bliss of emptiness leading to Nirvana and the Father Within by stopping or blocking the material drives which cause the pain (and pleasure) of life, as we were instructed to do by both Buddha and Jesus. The pleasure and even bliss that can come from this severe ascetic discipline is felt because the material drives are blocked or stopped from which pain can come from. This is not a non-material experience. It is not God we are feeling but a symbolic experience of Godhood.

The next stage in religious development is to take that bliss we can feel from the Inward Path of ascetic practice and apply it in the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood. That is the Twofold Path of theological materialism, where traditional religion is retained but transformed. We are in the world and of the world, and the sacred task is to find a way to evolve in the material world to real supermaterial Godhood. That is where life wants to go. That is the drive within life itself which works along with the ups and downs of natural evolution---and we can aid in that sacred biological and cultural goal.

We don't need Meryl Streep or Hollywood, they damage us


Meryl Streep is a good actress, although becoming a little mechanical (the eyes don't lie), but like most of her fellow actors she is a political idiot, as seen last night at the Golden Globe awards when the grande dame lectured against the evils of Donald Trump, football and the martial arts. We aren't quite a matriarchy yet, and we are not fully Marxist, so there may be a chance to take the power way from Hollywood by simply boycotting their films. Or maybe a few of Trump's conservative billionaire friends could open up a conservative film industry? We don't need Meryl Streep or Hollywood, they damage us.

Will Trump and his advisers follow Trifkovic's realist entente embracing the whole of the Northern Hemisphere?


Srdja Trifkovic on "Dismantling the Empire," from "Chronicles," January 2017

..."In practice, the first task is to improve relations with Russia—which is essential—and to establish a workable modus vivendi with China, which is highly desirable.  Outreach to Russia is vital to the definitive settlement of the European civil war that erupted in 1914, continued in 1939, and resulted in the frozen conflict called the Cold War.  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.  Trump has 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...

...It is to be hoped that Trump will strike a bargain with Russia on Syria.  There must be no more support for radical Islamic terrorists, whatever their “moderate” disguise.  This will necessitate some frank discussions with our “allies” in Riyadh and Doha, in which they are told in no uncertain terms that we know their game, and that they must cut off support to jihadists.  America may not overtly cooperate with Damascus and Baghdad (and implicitly Tehran) to destroy IS/Daesh, Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham, and the rest of the jihadi monsters, but Trump’s national-security team should let the Arab boots on the ground complete the work that is currently under way in Aleppo.  In the months ahead the United States should play mainly a supportive role: no ground forces, limited air power, and “engagement” only with the prior agreement of Syria’s and Iraq’s sovereign, legitimate governments.

...As for NATO—strategically useless and tainted with criminality, as it has been ever since Bill Clinton’s aggression against Yugoslavia in 1999, for the benefit of the KLA—Trump should start with the demand to end the “free-loadism” of its European members.  He should disengage from the Baltic and Black seas, drop Russia sanctions, and deal on a neutral basis with Ukraine.  Further east, he should ride herd on the Iran nuke deal with Moscow and Beijing, but not reject it.  He should keep the Saudis at arm’s length, treating them as the leading state sponsor of terrorism that they are...

...Trump needs to avoid the GOP/neocon apparat like the plague and appoint realists to his administration to make America great again.  It is not too tall an order. "

My Comment:

This seems to be a most practical realist path to "Dismantling the Empire." But what if Trump supports Israel and Putin supports Iran? As mentioned here earlier, we could then end up with another bi-polar world, with the U.S., Israel, the Sunni states, and a few Europeans on the Western pole, and Russia, Iran, China and a few European states on the Eastern pole. Will Putin abandon Shi'ite Islam or Trump abandon Israel?

"Nullification is the political movement of the 21st century"


In a very good essay in Chronicles (Jan 2017) Brion McClanahan says that "nullification is the political movement of the 21st century." We have to move back to the original federalism, localism, and decentralization of the Constitution. If 21 states can constitutional nullify national pot laws they can nullify other overly-centralized laws, and give real power back to the states.

My concern would be in staying strong enough as a large territorial nation to defend ourselves against other large nations or empires, but we can have federalism and a strong defense when needed. I would also eventually (and legally) want to take the federalism of states to its most natural conclusion, which is an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Then real human nature, which remains ethnocentric and group-orientated, even more than individualistic, can truly "think locally and act locally," as Mclanahan puts it.

What can be done about the media, and what can be done about the fall of the West?


In an essay by Joseph Pearce on the great Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Chronicles Jan 2017), Solzhenitsyn is quoted as saying that the media is "the greatest power within the Western countries, exceeding that of the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary," and Solzhenitsyn asks, " according to what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?" That is not said by men in positions of power, and it needs to be a big center of attention.

What can be done about it? Freedom of the press need not be chained, but big media monopolies need to be broken up, even if it takes an amendment to the Constitution to clarify it. But even that is not enough.

Solzhenitsyn's call for a virtue culture which turns its back on materialism to save the West, alas, becomes another Utopianism. It has been the Utopian dreams of spiritualism which have limited the path of material evolution to real Godhood. Disillusionment with Utopian secularism does not justify another spiritual utopianism to take its place.

Like Solzhenitsyn before them, the Traditional School of Russia today (eg. Aleksandr Dugin) seek to go back to spiritual utopianism to save the world, and Western intellectuals in the New Right in Europe and in America have followed this course, making the Enlightenment, reason, and science the enemy of Godhood.

We do need a religious understanding of politics and economics as Solzhenitsyn suggests, but we need a virtue culture based in the evolution of material life to supermaterial Godhood. The Enlightenment and reason are not the enemy of Godhood even though they are the enemy of believing in a deeper goal beyond the human goals suggested by the Enlightenment and reason. Materialism is not the limitation of divine goals, it is the means by which we evolve to real Godhood...Theological materialism sets this course.

A real bridge to "universalism"


An ethnopluralism of ethnostates provides a real bridge across localities, states, regions, ethnic groups, races, and classes, without demanding that all people must be considered the same. This is a better way to think of "universalism" and more real than other social structures such as cultural Marxism and political correctness. Most importantly ethnopluralism is more in harmony with real human nature, which has been affirmed throughout human history as being 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 to get from the present cultural Marxism and political correctness to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the challenge. I believe an ethnopluralism of states and regions could be established legally in the United States due to our constitutional separation of powers, states and regions. It may require a few constitutional amendments to legally give more power to the states, and would not be easy, but it is far preferable to the radically destructive civil disruptions, or even civil war, which naturally are now increasing due to natural competition between ethnic groups, races, and classes. Demanding that all people must be considered the same does not work. Demanding multiculturalism within the same living space also has not worked. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates provides a better way to establish a real bridge to "universalism."

We hope Trump's future improvisations will be on the theme of America First, but...


If "bullshit" means talking about what you don't know about (not really lying) when certain circumstances seem to call for it, as Chilton Williamson pointed out in a review on the subject of bullshit (Chronicles Jan. 2017), then Donald Trump's political style is not really bullshitting, he seems to be using a technique he uses in making business deals, it is more like jazz improvisations on a theme.

We hope Trump's future improvisations will be on the theme of America First, but as I mentioned here before, even though Trump seems to be making buddies with Putin, that may end up being bullshit on his (and his advisers) eventual theme of creating another bi-polar world, with the U.S., Israel, the Sunni states, and a few Europeans on the Western pole, and Russia, Iran, China and a few European states on the Eastern pole. I don't see Putin abandoning Shi'ite Islam and I don't see Trump abandoning Israel.

Contradictions and misunderstandings in Christianity can be resolved in theological materialism


Whether Christianity was influenced by Vedic monks by way of the Essenes who Jesus studied under with John the Baptist---which I think is possible---or whether Christianity was a similar but separate development, the asceticism of Jesus was much like Buddha's in rejecting material desires and rejecting the material world for the purpose of experiencing the God or Father Within. This was gradually contradicted and misunderstood in Christianity following the martyrdom of Jesus, often by brilliant philosophers who tried to support traditional material life in the face of their non-material founders.

Now if we jump forward to our time we have seen the abortion of 57 million babies since Roe vs Wade, which has put the birthrate below the replacement level. Contradictions and misunderstandings can be seen in the materialists taking the position of valuing only the evolution of material life yet supporting abortions, and non-material-spiritualists ascetically rejecting material life yet rejecting the abortion of life. When Jesus talked about giving Caesar his financial due it came from a position of defaming and not caring about material life and not from an affirmation of material life.

These root contradictions and misunderstandings which developed in Christianity can be resolved in theological materialism, where Godhood is understood as evolved to only in the material world. The old ascetic Inward Path to the God or Father Within can be retained but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood.

The Utopian schemes of both the materialistic Left and the spiritualistic Right


The Paleoconservatives like to say that there are no political solutions to cultural problems, and Marxism says that there are political solutions to cultural problems. These differences relate to the grounding of the Right in a non-material spiritualism and the Left in a complete materialism, with different ultimate goals. But both the goals of the Left and the Right involve Utopian solutions to cultural problems: the Right seeks a non-material Utopian God and the Left seeks a classless Utopian world of complete equality. Both the Left and Right leave out the sacred and ultimate goal of the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood, which actually connects or synthesizes the two world views.

People create politics as much as they create culture, and both politics and culture depend on the natural traits, the genetic traits, of the different ethnic groups who create the politics and the culture. Often distinctly different ethnic groups do not assimilate well with one another due to their natural differences more that their politics, which is negatively reflected in the civil disruptions of modern societies. That is, societies have been trying to be multicultural with distinctively different people living in the same space and told to all get along according to the Utopian schemes of both the materialistic Left and the spiritualistic Right.

This all points toward the political/cultural solution of the ethnopluralism hypothesis, often written about here. It is a conservative transformation---not revolution---which will bring about an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups can politically and culturally conduct themselves the way they want to according to their own natural traits while living in ethnostates within our Democratic Republic, perhaps with only a few amendments to the already existing constitutional separation of powers and states. We need to retain federalism and balance because we need the geopolitical heft of a large nation to defend ourselves in the big world. This is a sociopolitical or political/cultural structure based in a real non-Utopian view of human nature and Godhood.
