To downplay rational forms and affirm the passions and instincts is a Platonic nightmare. Why the fear of material life? Have the priests and philosophers scared you?
It is the instincts and passions of biology that lead to Godhood in material evolution, and reason is the helpmate in this sacred goal.
We have to admit it, Nietzsche was almost right, but his mainly goalless will-to-power missed the sacred goal of reforming traditional Godhood by way of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
Yes we can have "hymns to the gods and praises of goodness" in literature and the arts, as Socrates decreed, but the meaning of the gods and good men needs to be transformed, conservatively, in view of the evolution of knowledge since Plato.
We can conservatively retain the old view of God and of the virtues of Buddha, Plato, and Christ, but they need to be seen as the first, symbolic, Inward Path experience of God---reached through strict ascetic discipline---of the real Godhood only reached in the Outward Path of a very material evolution.
If I may change the ode of Keats on the Grecian urn, the Gods and virtue are material and supermaterial and evolved to in the material and supermaterial world, and that is all you know on earth and all you need to know.

There is a way to affirm ethnocentric human nature while also saving America as a democratic republic
Fake News? What About Fake Human Nature? Americans have been rather easily brainwashed by fake news, but we have been more seriously brainwashed by fake human nature. Human nature is susceptible to short-term instant gratification and this susceptibility has now led to the permanent loss of America as we have known it.
Real human nature, not fake human nature, remains as it has always been, 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.
It will be concluded by some that democracy cannot save real human nature or save America and we will have again the "totalitarian temptation" to "get things done" non-democratically, but that will be playing to that human susceptibility to short-term instant gratification and it will be the wrong way to go.
Empires promoting fake news and fake human nature fall and are usually replaced by and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates more in line with real human nature. The good news is that there is a way to save America as a democratic republic and affirm real human nature by applying the constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. This may require a few amendments to the Constitution, but it will be the natural conservative way to change, evolve, and save ourselves while saving America.

The fools and clowns of Hollywood still feel secure enough with their millions of dollars to spew their freak-show political ideas at award shows.
If half the country who voted for President Trump could #BoycottHollywood the lightweights in Hollywood would soon shut up, since most of them have sold their morals to the highest bidder.
We need an alternative to Hollywood, a Populists Film Industry, located in a pleasant red state. Some of Trump's billionaire buddies should get serious about this, because Hollywood is becoming an even worse sewer than it already was.

President Trump isn't a fascist, even though the corrupt Big Media says he is, so Trump has to limp along trying to work with the hedonistic liberals and democrats who block and smear everything he democratically tries to do to transform socially destructive forces into socially constructive forces.
When President Trump and his Attorney General now want to enforce the existing laws against pot smoking, it is not, as the corrupt media calls it, a silly or passe thing to do. Weed was no small part of the decline of American culture, it influenced the laid-back hedonism of the 1960's generation and the me-generation who became postmodern college professors teaching a relativity of laid back values to millennials who don't mind living in their parents basement as long as they have weed to smoke.
The decline of America culture and the American people really began to accelerate in the 1960's when several destructive things came together: postmodernism in the academic world, hedonism promoted by the Big Media, modern liberalism on the left, and libertarianism on the right. I'm not quite willing to call this a conspiracy against the American people any more than I am willing to say it was all due to ignorance, or due to drug czars seeking great wealth---it was some of all of this.
The first person I read who had the knowledge, and the self-sacrificing courage, to challenge Spengler's cyclic view of history was Wilmot Robertson in "The Ethnostate" (1992), where he suggested that we could halt and reverse the decline of America by transforming the socially destructive aspects of ethnic or race competition into developing socially constructive ethnostates. When I write here of transforming the American constitutional separation of powers and states into an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with real human nature which remains group-selecting and ethnocentric, it was first inspired by Robertson's courage.
We will have to wait for future leaders to pick up what President Trump leaves undone, as he picked up what Ronald Reagan left undone. But we can continue to counter Spengler and never quit on making the American people great again---and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is how to do it.

Conservative art philosophy tends to believe that if something is, as R.V Young put it in Modern Age, "exciting and appealing it is probably morally dubious," as tasty food is often fattening and full of things not good for you, like cholesterol.
But there is good and bad kinds of fat. The metaphysical mistake here was in conservatives and traditionalists believing that the beautiful, true, and the good are ultimately non-material and spiritual, as was their God, which led to the bloodless morals and aesthetics of conservative art.
This was not entirely successful because excitement and emotional appeal break through in traditional art---few people can live as if in monasteries or nunneries. (Interesting that Islam is even stricter in trying to keep human attributes out of art.)
But we don't have to go as far as as radical Nietzsche and his postmodern followers did in rejecting God, truth and goodness, but we do have to understand that real Godhood is attained through material and supermaterial evolution.
We don't need to reject or lose the bloodless God, which was the preliminary, symbolic, Inward Path expression or experience of the real Godhood reached through the Outward Path of material and supermaterial evolution. This is the Twofold Path of theological materialism.
It was Plato who brought this bloodlessness into Western philosophy, much as Buddha and Christ did. But this metaphysics can to be turned right side up again: spiritualism is the illusion, not materialism.
Burke and Kirk's "moral imagination" needs to be grounded in the real Godhood reached through material and supermaterial evolution. I would guess that Shakespeare, or say, the Romantic artists, might agree, at least on some instinctive level.

Religion has hated the very idea of material evolution yet alone material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
To define the very vehicle of material evolution required for evolving to Godhood as Satanic is a diabolically human invention. Think of how much the material world have to be feared or hated to define it as Satan.
Science excluded Godhood as the sacred goal of materialism, and religion and philosophy made Godhood, or Being, abstract, non-material, and spiritual.
It is Satan who the Bible has declaring that "humans will be like Gods." Humans will not be gods, but their descendants beyond the human species can be.
This is the simple foundation of theological materialism. It's a rare, bold, pioneer philosophy ignored now for obvious reasons.

Bomb threats at Jewish centers? And this following Trump's slavish obeisance to Netanyahu and Israel during the Trump/Netanyahu press conference? And also after Trump's turn to a bi-polar geopolitical strategy (as predicted here) of the U.S., Israel, and the Sunni states, against an Eastern pole of Russia, Iran, China?
It would not even be brilliant to fake bomb treats against Jewish centers and stories about Trump's anti-Semitism to get out front the more obvious charges of Trump's slavishness to Israel, which would otherwise be predicable. This has caused Trump (who seems clueless to the calumny) to publicly show that he is not anti-Semitic---and he is not---which causes more anti-Semitism that can also be exploited and controlled.
Are Gentiles really this gullible? These are easy magician tricks, to distract with the right hand so that we don't see the tricks of the left hand. And it seems to be working. But it does require chutzpah and Big Media power.
It's enough to make a person anti-Semitic. I think of my Viking ancestors who would not waste time trying to untie this Gordian Knot of dirty tricks but would cut the cord with one swipe of a sword...Wait, that would be the hope of the dirty tricks.
This would be funny if it weren't so dangerous. Europeans can be thrown in jail for even asking these questions. I am not anti-Semitic, I am a conservative America patriot, and I think the Jews have a natural right to advance themselves, but they are wrong if they try to do it by destroying other groups from advancing themselves. It always comes back to bite them, so it really is not a good long-term strategy.

The earth needs to be seen as the lands of evolving people living in evolving ethnostates within the material and supermaterial world, with all evolving toward Godhood, working together if they can
I see no limit to what science can understand, including the religious insights regarding the activating powers within, as well as knowledge of the Godhood evolved to in the material world. Intuition and faith are certainly allowed to be included in this understanding. Godhood can be seen or understood as resulting from natural evolution even though we have not yet evolved to Godhood. Godhood is not permanently hidden in spiritualism because Godhood is material or supermaterial.
Both man and Godhood "fit" in nature because they are part of nature. If Godhood is remote from human life, Godhood is not remote from life itself, because Godhood is at the zenith of evolving material life.
An "incarnation" is not imposed from without by a spiritual force, the life-activation of the material Spirit-Will within is a vital part of material life itself. The Spirit-Will which is material is passed on through procreation like all natural material elements.
Aristotle was right in saying that political activity is for the "common good," but this insight needs to be informed by sociobiological knowledge of kin-selection and group-selection. This means that the common good leads to ethnostates, which then can function protected by forms of federalism. Right without might is helpless, but might without harmonizing with real human nature is hopeless.
As to the separation of church and state, both are activated and informed by the same evolutionary Will-to-Godhood within all life, and both have the same goal of evolving to Godhood, whether church and state acknowledge this or not.
"Universalism" does not create a world-wide brotherhood of man, universalism creates a world-wide ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in line with real human nature which remains primarily kin-centered and ethnocentric. But rich and poor, intelligent and ignorant, share the same internal activation of the Spirit-Will.
The "inner" and "outer," the esoteric and exoteric, are confusing and were mainly caused by the false separation and false duality of the material and spiritual. The natural distinction is between the higher and lower evolved, but both are material, and both share the same imperfections since even Godhood continues evolving---and there is no end or beginning to evolution. No group and nothing is permanently superior.
The earth needs to be seen as the lands of evolving people living in evolving ethnostates within the material and supermaterial world, with all evolving toward Godhood, working together if they can.

Aleksandr Dugin's fourth political theory mainly involves the first religious theory of non-materialism and spiritualism. What Dugin returns to is his own Guenonian/Evolian/Duginian version of ancient religious tradition.
The theological materialism written about here will not be called a fifth political theory, there is not a fifth theory any more than there is a fourth political theory, the so-called fourth is clearly part of the first non-materialist spiritual theory, as is theological materialism.
Theological materialism represents the religious evolutionary material path to Godhood. Now that is a new and realistic way to deal with the decaying modern world, and there is no need to give it a theory number. Theological materialism includes but transforms various elements of the other "theories," traditionalist religion, liberalism, communism, even fascism, along with the vitality of modern science.
Material evolution has the sacred goal of evolving to supermaterial Godhood, and non-materialism and spiritualism can at last be understood as only the Inward Path and secondary to the Outward Path of material evolution toward Godhood. Godhood is retained, religion is retained, science and progress are included by way of finally having a sacred religious goal for material evolution.
This is not merely the inward goal of experiencing the God or Father Within by way of anti-material asceticism, which was only a small hint of what real Godhood is like at the zenith of the successful evolution of material life, which never really begins or ends.
It is the revival of the West, not the destruction of the West, which theological materialism affirms
The Traditionalist School, from Rene Guenon and Julius Evola to Aleksandr Dugin, made the fatal mistake of turning back to spiritualism and rejecting most of the history of Western material philosophy.
Platonism/Vedism connected reason and faith, which the Middle Ages affirmed, but then Descartes and the Enlightenment separated reason from faith, leading to Nietzsche who said only the will-to-power was behind reason/faith, which postmodernism affirmed. Then the neo-traditionalist school of Dugin moved back to spiritualism, essentially rejecting Western philosophy and science, saying that man could be in the world but not of the world. A hierarchy of values put materialism (and the West) on the bottom of a hierarchy reaching up to priest-kings and to a non-material God or Being abstractly defined by spiritualism.
Philosophers on the Right or the Left could have followed after the Beyondist science of psychologist Raymond Cattell and the sociobiology of E.O.Wilson, but they essentially turned their backs on Western science and went back to the Vedas and Plato's anti-materialism. Unfortunately they took many Western thinkers with them, who now condemn the West.
The philosophy of theological materialism did not take that fatal non-Western turn. Materialism is the vehicle by which we evolve to supermaterial Godhood, and science, religion, art, and politics can aid in this sacred evolution. It is the revival of the West, not the destruction of the West, which theological materialism affirms. It is the conservative reformation or transformation of religion, not the rejection of religion, and not a turning back to life-denying spiritualism, which theological materialism affirms.

Arrogant blowhards tend to be disliked in the North but virtually applauded in the South, which was more obvious before Western culture became motley and decadent. Think of the Southern Italian preening himself with his shirt open to the navel, or the African with his gold chains and gold teeth. Then contrast that with the buttoned-up Brits, the nice-nice Scandinavians, or the strong group-behavior of North Asians. The cold north required more altruistic group-orientation than the warm south in order to survive, the south could get away with more individual preening. There is not a superior/inferior element in this, these behaviors are simply due to the evolution of different survival traits.
But these and other differences tend to clash in multicultural societies. You get such things as the young white man awkwardly making gang signs as he ludicrously tries to copy black rappers, which we now often see in our gaudy award-show circuses. It is, or would be, much healthier and more realistic to let distinctly different ethnic groups be who they are and act the way they want to act living within distinctive ethnostates. Then there could be realistic "civil rights" without so many disruptive clashes and bitter competitions. The constitutional separation of powers and states could move in this direction, and federalism could hawkishly protect the whole. I don't think we can have long-term social harmony without this return to sanity.
Look to who benefits from the motley circus we have become. Today the Evil Big Media and corrupt politicians are running wild at our new President Trump who is merely trying to keep Islamic terrorists out of the country! So we have a long road ahead with much hard rain to fall.

Politics is a complicated maze of instincts and reason, and Hollywood actors---who are looking more and more like arrested-development teenagers---claim to be speaking from the heart not the head. But speaking from the heart usually means speaking from emotions and instincts that are primarily genetically based (although reason is too), and modern liberals don't like to acknowledge anything as being genetically based.
This becomes further complicated when we see that there are gender differences in the instincts and emotions, with women being genetically more nurturing and men more territorial. This can then be reflected in politics where the left tends to be more nurturing and the right territorial.
The philosopher Schopenhauer in his contrary way thought women were intellectual and men emotional, but he thought that the emotional Will was the inner being and intellect was secondary.
Political "isms" are usually the creation of the head more than the heart. My affirmation of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is based on the idea that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is more deeply and genetically based. Human nature remains kin-centered and ethnocentric, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, which naturally calls for ethnostates.
I probably lean more toward male-based, external, territorial politics and female-based, nurturing, internal politics. I wouldn't want to try to take the vote away from women (or Hollywood), and I don't believe in tyrannically fascism, left or right. And I am not anti-reason since I strongly affirm science. So this is a subject difficult to nail down.

According to "Modern Age," the essential conservative journal, conservatism reforms what is bent or broken in tradition while preserving what is valuable in tradition. Conservatism is against one-size-fits-all ideologies and for independent centers of power and local control.
I believe conservatism needs to deepen itself to include the reform of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which harmonizes with real traditions derived from real human nature, which remains largely kin-centered and ethnocentric.
Conservatism is against all ideologies of universalism and points out the contradiction of postmodernism in its belief that all ideas and values are relative, with the exception of the idea just stated. But then conservatism goes on to affirm the universalism of Christianity.
This universalism of Christianity---which promotes the idea that we are all equal under God---is really not much concerned with human differences but is concerned with experiencing the universal Father Within, and it is this which seems to be behind conservatives ignoring or rejecting an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.
An ethnopluralism of ethnostates is a reform within the conservative tradition, which affirms independent centers of power and local control based on real human nature, which remains largely kin-centered and ethnocentric and not universally the same.
Ethnic groups naturally compete, since group-selection remains the primary unit of human selection, as it has been throughout human history. Traditional conservatism needs to see how real human nature can naturally be more harmonious in ethnostates.
The constitutional separation of powers and states in America could conservatively accommodate regions and states gradually moving toward being the ethnostates they tend to be anyway, with perhaps only a few amendments to the constitution.
Whatever peace is humanly possible becomes more possible when independent centers of power and local control are based on real human nature, which remains largely kin-centered and ethnocentric, leading instinctively and logically toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.

Sex and the genitals are not the deepest focus of the "instincts," which Freud more or less believed. The activation of material life by the material Spirit-Will within life, within every cell of the body, is the focus of the instincts. The instincts have a purpose beyond human abstract definitions of ends and purposes and that purpose is to evolve materially to supermaterial (not supernatural) Godhood. This is what grounds real religion, long-term religion, deeper than anything else. "Action follows motivation" but things are not working on their own with only short term ends. The Spirit-Will is the dominate activation, the intellect is secondary...And it is all empirical, if we can find it.

We now officially know how Trump will stand with Israel and the Jews. Such total one-sidedness for Israel means negotiating by way of tyranny, which obviously will be rejected. One day a Western leader will stand up for America, although not in the unjust way Netanyahu and Trump stand for Israel. Will the corrupt Media continue to hate Trump?
The dangerous fantasies of cultural Marxism and neoconservatism led to the creation of the gross American empire and away from the Constitutional Republic of our Founders. This was largely due to blocking or distorting our understanding of real human nature.
When human nature is understood as being largely grounded in the biological origin of much of social and cultural behavior, as the evolutionary sciences have taught us, and when human nature is understood as remaining very much kin-centered and ethnocentric, then the constitutional separation of powers and states harmonizes very well with human nature.
The conservative "moral imagination" of the great Russell Kirk, alas, was grounded in a non-materialism and spiritualism which distorted human nature and morality almost as effectively as the fantasies of cultural Marxism and neoconservatism, which led to the gross Empire.
But conservativism, at least deep conservatism, does not have to lose God, religion, morality or the moral imagination when Godhood and morality are understood as attained through the evolution of material life to supermaterial Godhood. This sacred evolution relates well with the constitutional separation of powers and states because human nature remains as it has always been, kin-centered and ethnocentric, as evolution proceeds naturally.
The next stage in dismantling the gross empire is to see the constitutional separation of powers and states as leading to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, still within the constitution as envisioned by the Founders, perhaps with only a few amendments. Then human nature, religion, culture, and government can be in realistic harmony over the long-term.

That tide in the affairs of men which Shakespeare's Brutus talked about could be seen in a recent graph by D. Stiegman in the "Small Wars Journal," which shows Autocracy followed by a Republic, then Democracy, Anarchy, and back to Autocracy again.
Where are we? It's complicated. The people have become very discontented with their Representatives and so the Democracy stage has been transforming the traditional Republic. But we also could be on the edge of the next stage of Anarchy, with increasing clashes between strong groups, ethnic and otherwise. But there is also a hint of Autocracy in the election of President Trump, who has, typical of autocrats, chosen a cabinet of military people, which is usually what Autocrats do in trying to restore order out of chaos.
Do I have a preference? I think of myself as a deep conservative and an American patriot. I want to reside in an American Republic, but one which brings the constitutional separation of powers and states forward to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in line with real human nature, which remains very much kin-centered, ethnocentric, and even xenophobic. If a few amendments to the Constitution can help bring this about, so be it. That is more or less the structure of government and culture which humans always come back to when empires inevitably fall.

When you think about the heritage of Western culture, the artistic, philosophic, literary, and legal themes and traditions, and compare that to the themes of last night's Grammy awards, with the garbage manners, the endless "party time" ethos, you really do have to ask: "What the hell happened to our culture, both high and low, and how can we prevent further suicide?"
There is room for different ethnic cultures in America, or could be with ethnostates, but today the pop culture presented is mainly Afrocentric, which is then copied, usually badly, by all ethnic groups. Country music, when it isn't trying to copy the screaming divas, is shoved in the corner. What kind of suicide and cuckoldry of non-African cultures is that?! Pop music or low culture in the past related to the local ethnic cultures of the West, and usually had the same values as high Western culture.
Most of the greatest art and culture in the West was created under monarchies or with wealthy patrons who insisted on great work. Who are the patrons today? Arrogant capitalists who know nothing about art and culture but know everything about making dirty money, or by the patronage of government grants controlled by politically correct culturally Marxist morons.

Who commodified American culture, who put money above cultural health? The globalist version of capitalism did. The Big Media and the academic world promoted and individually benefited from this cultural collapse.
High and low art were once more or less united with the traditional values of real human nature, and so was politics. Now the Big Media promotes soft porn and is moving quickly toward hard porn, and politics promotes the fantasy of cultural Marxism taught by the corrupt academic world.
President Trump has begun to restore values related to real human nature, which remain as they have always been: 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.
If real human nature is not corrupted it naturally leads toward traditional art, economic nationalism, and would eventually lead to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in harmony with the real human nature listed above. In America this return to human nature could be grounded in the constitutional separation of powers and states, which would separate the feuding ethnic groups in a natural way, and be protected by federalism.
How far can President Trump go in restoring the values of real human nature? Even if he can only move in this direction it is a healthy thing. But President Trump is now strongly opposed to the degree that a new civil war seems possible, thanks to the Big Media, the academic world, the feminists, and brainwashed modern liberals...This is how fascism raises its dictatorial and imperialistic head.

It is a kind of delusion to think that survival and reproduction, which lead to culture, are each working on their own with single purposes. Certainly non-human lower forms of life are not aware of much more than the immediate motives and drives of their individual lives.
These things, beginning with survival and reproduction, and moving on to culture in general, are not the "dupes" of the instincts, as Schopenhauer thought in his negative way---not unlike the traditional religious gurus, and Darwin too in a less negative way---but theses instincts are the glories of the deepest activation of life to evolve toward Godhood in the material and supermaterial world.
We need to survive on earth and out into the cosmos if we are to continue to fulfill this sacred purpose of life. Can we? Knowing our purpose would help...Theological materialism is the attempt to affirm this sacred material call to religion.
Friday, February 10, 2017
The "subject" doesn't have primacy over the "object" even if the mind is the subject which sees the object. The object which can be known by the subject is more powerful than the subject. The object is essentially the primary activation of the material will or Spirit-Will existing in the whole body, in every cell of the body, which is not even acknowledged by modern or postmodern thinkers---other than Freud and his unconscious, who learned much from Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
The object/Spirit-Will not only dominates the intellect and consciousness it made possible the previous evolution of consciousness as the means to aid material life toward the ultimate goal of evolving to supermaterial Godhood, which is the zenith of material evolution and is ultimate success in material survival and reproduction.
Oddly and perversely Schopenhauer, like Buddha long before him, thought that the Will is a yoke which must be overcome if the intellect is to attain its fullness, when the opposite is the reality: it is the Spirit-Will which has the goal of activating life from within, including the intellect and consciousness, to evolve toward real Godhood in the material world.
But Schopenhauer's image of the intellect being a lame sighted man riding on the shoulders of the blind strong Will remains valid. The subject/self/intellect has a working relationship with the Spirit-Will whether it knows it or not, but the subject needs to continue to learn more about the will/object which drives it, the tip of the iceberg intellect needs to know as much as possible about the much larger Spirit-Will beneath the surface.
I have called the blind/object/Spirit-Will a Super-Id, which is not a beast but is the civilizer of the beast---that is, if the sighted/subject/intellect can discover the truth and the goals of the Spirit-Will and work along with it. This activation of life toward Godhood requires turning religion right side up while not rejecting religion.

...When politicians don black robes and seize powers they do not have, they should be called out for what they are – usurpers and petty tyrants. And if there is a cause upon which the populist right should unite, it is that elected representatives and executives make the laws and rule the nation. Not judges, and not justices.
Indeed, one of the mightiest forces that has birthed the new populism that imperils the establishment is that unelected justices like Warren and Brennan, and their progeny on the bench, have remade our country without the consent of the governed – and with never having been smacked down by Congress or the president.
Consider. Secularist justices de-Christianized our country. They invented new rights for vicious criminals as though criminal justice were a game. They tore our country apart with idiotic busing orders to achieve racial balance in public schools. They turned over centuries of tradition and hundreds of state, local and federal laws to discover that the rights to an abortion and same-sex marriage were there in Madison’s Constitution all along. We just couldn’t see them..."
The Inward Path of spiritualism is essentially the same wherever it originated and needs transforming not rejection
Which came first the Hindu Chakra Correspondence Chart or the Kabbalistic Tree of Life? The Tree of life may have come to the Jewish people via the Ancient Egyptians, but they might have gotten it via the Indian Vedas or pre-Vedas and the Chakras, which arrived at the beginning of the Egyptian dynasties as a result of invasions from Eurasia. That at least is the hypothesis.
The point here is that like all Traditionalism this is only defining the Inward Path of spiritualism which is essentially the same wherever it originated. That is, it is abstract definitions of physical experiences as a result of ascetic discipline of the body to experience what was defined as the God or Father Within, which were not considered a material or physical experience but in reality are a material and physical experience, and not immaterial.
This insight may at first seem to reject Traditionalism but it does not have to if it sees these ascetic experiences as preliminary, or as the first human inner experiences and definitions (only) of God that then lead to seeing the real Godhood which is reached through material and supermaterial evolution. This explains the origin of the Twofold Path of theological materialism and the coming Evolutionary Church....Long-lasting civilizations need to be grounded in religion but seem doomed without this supermaterial transformation.
You need to subscribe to read this hot overdo take-down of Academia by Jason Morgan in the Feb.17 Chronicles, but you should subscribe to this paleoconservative magazine anyway. (This essay should have been made free to the public.)
For example: "...Whatever happens, the taxpayers must end all support to these places, and must evict everyone from the buildings and sell the assets off to the highest bidder. The loan guarantees, the grants, the tenure, the endowments, the retirement benefits, UW Chancellor Rebecca Blank’s $95,000-per-year speechwriter—all of it must go. Let the mad and the avaricious peddle their brummagem as they please, but let the taxpayer subsidization of each state’s Kool-Aid Archipelago end today. Delenda est academia. And teachers unions—you’re next..."

Ironically science takes the word of religion in declaring that God or Godhood is invisible and immaterial, and so science doesn't even examine this subject. But the Will or Spirit-Will-To-Godhood is material or supermaterial, and exists in the whole body, in every cell of the body, and science should be looking for the material Spirit-Will to empirically define it...I include the word "spirit" along with "will" simply to conservatively retain religious history while transforming it from an immaterial to a material view of Godhood, even though it is confusing to both materialists and immaterialists.
The Spirit-Will shows itself in the activation of the body as a whole, as both Schopenhauer and Nietzsche said, but Schopenhauer, like Buddha long before him, thought the will was a "yoke" that needed to be turned off before the mind could reach its full potential. The Traditionalist School follows this metaphysical error. Nietzsche saw the will as a goalless will-to-power. Both were mistaken. The ultimate goal of of the material Spirit-Will is to activate material life to seek Godhood by way of material evolution. As Schopenhauer put it, the will is like a strong blind man carrying on his shoulders a sighted lame man. The Spirit-Will is the primary element in human beings and the intellect is secondary.
Materialism is right in seeing man as a material body but wrong in seeing no sacred goal to materialism. The goal of materialism is to evolve to Godhood, and so if we seek or define God as not material and beyond the material process then we lose Godhood, or lose the attainment of real Godhood in the standard fantasy of immaterialism.
The idea is to bring the intellect in contact with the material Spirit-Will, which actives the whole body. When culture doesn't reflect the evolutionary goals of life----and most importantly the sacred goals---culture becomes decadent and degenerate. Life needs to recover the deepest moral decisions and religious goals which are all material and supermaterial, including Godhood. Art and politics then follow.

The constitutional separation of powers and states in the U. S. can gradually and legally move toward an ethnopluralism of states, protected by federalism, and not ruled by Big Government.
We can affirm the benefits of market capitalism applied to economic nationalism, with tariffs on foreign products, etc., while not affirming a state-sponsored capitalism, or the libertarian version of capitalism which limits everything to an abstract commodity.
This can return culture and politics to real human nature, which remains traditionally 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 philosophy of theological materialism can find common ground with Christianity in the Twofold Path, where the Inward Path to the experience of the God or Father-within is included but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood. This can join religion and science.
This is not effete modern liberalism with its foolish fantasies of human nature, and this is not the fascism of the far right or the far left. Radical revolution, whether left or right, is mistaken. Innovation needs be tied to existing traditions and customs which evolved over human and even prehuman time.
I know of no better and deeper solution to the present fall of the West.

While watching "Lady Gaga" attempt to entertain us during half-time at the Superbowl yesterday I found myself asking: is popular culture now designed by and for chimpanzees?
Even the few pop stars who seem to be publicly against the endless sex and drug themes nevertheless strongly believe that the only moral imperative is to have no moral imperative, "freedom" for them is always license and a relativity values---we all must be free even to destroy ourselves.
Are sex and drugs really all there is to pop culture?
The decayed academic world of the present generation backs up this decayed philosophy by preaching moral relativism to their self-hating yet self-absorbed students. And of course what is now the Evil Media also promotes the same destruction of healthy values.
Both high and low culture need to get back in harmony with real human nature, which remains kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.
Rational and instinctive culture, high and low, need to move in this direction---they will anyway, since degenerate empires always fall.

In postmodern philosophy truth is subject to so-called political necessity. But religion and even science also often subject truth to their own ends.
It seems that in the activation of evolving life toward survival and reproductive success lies can lead to at least short-term success, and even sometimes long-term success.
Because humans can be more cunning than wise, lies will always be with us. Lies were applied by human beings long before postmodernism told us that truth is relative to the needs of politics.
Some groups do seem to lie more than others, which seems related to being weaker than other groups. Warrior societies seem less prone to lies than non-warrior societies.
The "Fake News" which we are increasingly seeing put forward by what I call the Evil Media is part of this lying dynamic.
In spite of all this, I believe real truth is grounded in the natural and biological world, and eventually natural truths rise above artificial lies---and I don't think this is a lie to further my own ends.

We can now openly advocate every kind of perversity, nihilism, insanity, drugs, promiscuity, misogyny, homosexuality, trans-genderism, etc, etc., but it is taboo to mention the biological origin of basic social behavior inherent in real human nature, which naturally leads to ethnocentrism, or the really bad word, "racism."
Even the boldest conservatives will not mention this. Some genuinely believe that acknowledging human nature as being ethnocentric will cause permanent war between ethnic groups, some believe ethnocentrism goes against the universal structure of Christian theology, and some remain muzzled because they know that mentioning this will likely cause them to lose the livelihood on which their families depend.
The Evil Media and the entertainment world which promote this destruction of real human nature are backed by the academic world throughout our educational system. Why do they do this? Multiculturalism promoted within the same living space naturally does not work, it breaks down societies and identities, and the broken societies are then more easily exploited. Global financial capitalism ultimately owns the Evil Media and they gather up the pieces and the power of the broken national borders which they created.
The way out of this degeneration is to begin to openly acknowledge that real human nature is in fact 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.
Conservatives and effete liberals in America may relax in seeing that this does not mean advocating radical revolution, the constitutional separation of powers and states which now exists can eventually lead to a sane and natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates. It is basic common sense and a healthy reality to separate distinctly different people who naturally compete and even fight with one another to advance their own groups. Some form of federalism can protect the whole without taking over the whole with Big Government.

If we use the image of the "river of time" as the flow of material and supermaterial evolution, we see that religion and politics follow evolution, evolution doesn't follow religion and politics.
The river of time and evolution is not reactionary or revolutionary but tends to retain the past while transforming it for the future, which is what traditional or paleo-conservatism seems to aim at.
Such political/religious movements as Islamic jihadism, or communism, or fascism, usually seek to radically change the flow of the river of time and evolution, whereas reactionary movements of tradition seek to stop the river from flowing, or turn the flow backward.
The river of time as the flow of material and supermaterial evolution suggests that we need a religion and politics in harmony with material evolution and real human nature.
Human nature remains ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
This suggests promoting a natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates, well protected in distinctive regions, as we all evolve toward Godhood.
Theological materialism affirms being in harmony with the river of time and evolution in religion and in politics, as life evolves in the material world toward supermaterial Godhood, with no beginning and no ending.

Nasa has described life as "a self-sustaining chemical system capable of Darwinian evolution.'” That is fine as far as it goes, but 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. Life is driven by the internal necessity, or the sacred activation, of material life evolving toward supermaterial life, the zenith of material evolution, defined in theological materialism as real Godhood.
Trump putting Iran on notice for their aggression seems to show more movement toward that bipolar world speculated upon here. Would a Western geopolitical pole of the U.S., Israel, the Sunni states, etc. risk serious competition with an Eastern pole of Russia, Iran, China etc. if the Western pole did not think it had the East boxed in by having sucked the East into the Western financial system where they can be sanctioned, etc?
I wouldn't count on this strategy. The Western financial banking system has become richer helping to make China and Russia powerful enough now to form their own financial world in direct competition with the West. The East is still militarily inferior to the West (but quickly gaining), so the West probably thinks it can muscle its way with the East.
Have nationalists and populists been so relieved to see Trump addressing their concerns that they have not seen, or conveniently overlooked, the possibility of the tail of Israel wagging the dog of the U. S.? Trump seems to be doing everything that can benefit Israel, thinking that also benefits the U.S..
This is not a good long-term realist strategy. If this is Trump's strategy I would not therefore support the East over the West as many in the Alt-right have done in following the Russian Aleksandr Dugin, who hates the West.
I remain an America patriot and I would support working within the system for a pan-European strategy, as proposed by Srdja Trifkovic, to effect "a pan-European entente that embraces the whole of the Northern Hemisphere, from the British Isles to Vladivostok to the Americas...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"...

How theological materialism and deep-conservatism relate to the fateful outcome of the Trump movement
"Financial capitalism" has not been economic nationalism or real conservatism, it has been imperial capitalism, undeclared wars, unrestricted immigration, transgender-rights, etc. etc..
Even though we might assume President Trump would be a financial capitalist based on his past history, he has been promoting economic nationalism, which was the base of historical American success in the first place.
The Evil Media, financial capitalists, and the Left would have preferred the standard neoconservative---if they must move to the right---and so they have, together, promoted another civil war in America against Trump and his proposed programs.
The future of America, the West, and deep-conservatism depend on the outcome of this battle.
Deep-conservatism understands that economic nationalism and "conservatism" go back as far as to ground philosophy in culture before politics, which goes against the ground of the Left with its absolute concern with equality politically ruling everything, but deep-conservatism sees an even deeper form of conservatism.
Beneath politics and culture is the biological origin of much of social behavior, and that includes such things as natural human group-selection, which then leads to natural forms of ethnocentrism, and these in turn lead to conservatism.
But deep-conservatism goes even deeper than the biological origin of ethnocentrism. Deep-conservatism moves even beneath the science of evolution and grounds itself in the teleological goal of material life evolving to supermaterial Godhood.
The principal that rules all other principles in theological materialism is the evolution of material life toward supermaterial Godhood.
This is how deep-conservatism, which conservatively retains the past while transforming it, relates to the fateful outcome of the present-day Trump movement.
