On the acceptance of whites becoming a minority by whites


Almost more astounding than the prediction that whites will be a minority in the United States, Canada, and New Zealand by 2050 is the lack of concern about it. Why?

It is mostly do to the Media and the schools constantly affirming this trend to make whites a minority, and by threatening anyone who objects to it with the charge of racism and all the social consequences of that label. 

But the seeming acceptance of whites becoming a minority by whites also has to do with the altruism of Northern ethnic groups, which was strongly genetically programmed into Northern Europeans and Northern Asians; altruistic behavior by an individual that looked like it may be disadvantages to the individual benefited others of its kind. This was especially important in the North for survival during and after the last Ice Age. But altruism stops being beneficial to ethnic groups in multicultural states and becomes more suicidal.

Also, none of us were taught in our schools or in the popular Media to know that as the people change the culture changes, so we have not fully realized that we will largely lose our culture too when whites become a minority.

Are these fatal flaws for whites? We will probably end up with the choice of saving ourselves and our cultures by separating into regionalism, localism, ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states. It is probably that, or something like it, or the fading away of whites.

Entelechy will one day be acknowledged by both science and religion


I find the arguments that evolution is “non-purposive” and random as closed as the religious arguments denying evolution, information is lacking in both arguments.

Entelechy” is the hypothetical agency in some vitalist doctrines, not yet demonstrable by normal scientific methods, which is considered an inherent regulating and directing force in the development and functioning of an organism. I see the concept as the inward activating material force of “Tirips,” which activates material life inwardly to evolve toward the zenith of success in survival and reproduction and toward supermaterial Godhood, while working within the outside ups and downs of natural evolution.

Tirips essentially defines "life" itself, the material activation within life, within every cell of the body, demanding things like metabolism and reproduction. Why? Tirips essentially activates material life to be "life," which ultimately means to evolve in the material world, if possible all the way to the zenith of success in survival and reproduction, which means to ascending levels of Godhood, while working within the ups and downs of outside natural evolution.

I see evolution moving inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, and the pattern has a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward “higher and higher more effective living forms,”as Cattell put it. The goal of evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion.

Defining Tirips as internally activating life toward evolving toward higher and higher forms and eventually to Godhood, shaped by natural outside evolution, may be a bit further than present science and religion want to go, but we can go there. I think such a drive and direction will one day be acknowledged by both science and religion.

Clean out the stables of our humanities departments


"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers," said Shakespeare's "Dick The Butcher," supposedly making a joke. In today's world I would expand that to humanities professors.

The problem seems to stem from professorships being a paid occupation, from the pressure to continually publish academic work to further careers, and from there being too many hungry professors. Deeper than that, humanities professors, like normal people, are driven by natural wills to power and the drive for survival and reproductive success, whether they are conscious of it our not.

Such hooey as “post-structuralist” deconstruction, Lacanian analysis, ect. was brought to our colleges and universities by French intellectuals---who tend to like over-complication---and was greedily picked up by American professors desperate to publish academic work to further their careers or perish. The gibberish of postmodernism was also a way to attack the hated traditional West since most of these slight of hand academics were Marxist, or cultural Marxists.

In one or two simplified herculean sweeps the verdicts of the science of sociobiology could clean out the Augean stables of our postmodern humanities departments, which contain a great amount of horseshit.

Edward O. Wilson, the father of the science of sociobiology wrote: "The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool. The brain is a product of evolution. Human behavior. . .is the circuitous technique by which human genetic material has been and will be kept intact. Morality has no other demonstrable ultimate function."

Wilson or his younger followers would be my choice to clean out our humanities departments and virtually begin again. It won't be easy because who wants to lose the two cars in every garage and the large Smart Led TV?

Scientific materialism need not be god-free or religion-free, materialism does not restrict the moral imagination


Traditional religionists and spiritualists tell us that materialism is reductionist and a restriction on the moral imagination, but that is because they have not imagined the material evolution to Godhood.

When the spiritual blockade is lifted we can see that the material world can evolve toward Godhood. Scientific materialism need not be god-free or religion-free.

Human nature is circumscribed by our biological equipment but the material evolution from frogs to man can continue from man to ascending levels of Godhood.

The old dualities between the material and the spiritual, mind and body, led to the unfortunate split between science and religion, which no-longer needs to apply.

Materialism does not restrict the moral imagination, spiritualist ghost stories have been replaced by science fiction.

The problem with occult metaphysics


What has been formerly thought of as spiritual is supermaterial. Enchain man to matter? The problem here, and with occult metaphysics in generally (and also seen in the revealed religions) derives from the perpetuation of the material world as dark, and the so-called non-material spiritual world as light. This duality does not really exist, material life evolves to supermaterial life and eventually if successful to supermaterial Godhood at the zenith of evolution.

Radical revolution, occult or otherwise, is not necessary, the new is conservatively enfolded in the old. It is through the material and supermaterial evolution of life that real Godhood is reached, which is far beyond the
inward, human, experience of God, blissful as that is. Calling the material world or material evolution evil or dark actually blocks the Path to real Godhood---if anything that is evil. In distinguishing between ascending and descending evolution, the Paths find balance in the Twofold Path where the Involutionary Inward Path is seen as only the symbolic-experience of the supermaterial Godhood reached in the Evolutionary Outward Path of evolution, as described in theological materialism.

There is no need to waste time trying to untie the various still-existing Gordian Knots of the occult world. The "transmutation" of man to Godhood is accomplished through
material evolution. This is the real "alchemy", and it is the central concern of the Evolutionary Outward Path. The Inward Path contains the ancient version of the alchemy which attempts to transmute man inwardly to at least mirror the Golden Soul-Within. Material/supermaterial evolution applies the real, not symbolic, “elixir of the philosopher's stone,” which includes man evolving beyond man to ascending levels of Golden Godhood.

Blavatsky claimed to unite the eastern and western occult traditions but she tried to unite only the Inward Paths, and that was not nearly enough. Dugin's present Russian Eurasianism could be at least tangentially connected to the traditionalist occult of Shambhala, and the West tangentially connected to the Atlantis-Kabbalah occult, but both compete for the same truncated Inward God. Even if the Kabbalah may have been originally derived from Indo-European or proto-Indo-European sources, the orthodox Jewish adepts of the Kabbalah are light years ahead of the other occult groups. Yet even the Kabbalah joins their two paths in the Sephirot to the Unnamed Inward God, which is also not enough.

This becomes as much an exoteric as an esoteric divine mission, joining science and religion. Separations, variety, ethnostates, and rational territoriality are necessary to evolution, given kin and ethnic-centered human nature, and all groups can share evolutionary knowledge in the long heroic path to Godhood.

The real ethnic problems come from supremacism, not from ethnocentrism


The dictionary definition of racism is “the belief that different races possess distinct characteristics, abilities, or qualities, especially so as to distinguish them as inferior or superior to one another.” In the increasing charges of “racism” now being hurled against people on the right, the first part of that definition is bypassed for the second part. But the charge of racism is also often underhandedly used as the racist will to power of one race over another---often the most ethnocentric or racist people make the most noise against racism.

Here is the predicament: real human nature is ethnocentric or racist because for many thousands of years right up to our present time group selection, or group altruism, was the best way to be successful in survival and reproduction. So human nature became genetically kin-centered and ethnic-centered, even xenophobic, as well as being genetically gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, and religious-making, with group-selection and ethnic selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.

The real ethnic problems come from supremacism, from applying the second part of that definition of racism, from distinguishing races as inferior or superior to one another. That might have worked for survival success in very difficult times, in hunter gatherer times, but in our overpopulated world today claiming supremacism and imperialism is countered by all other groups ganging up on and destroying the upstart supremacist.

It is better to think of ethnic groups and races as different and distinct from one another, and as only inferior or superior to one another in different areas. The racial problems we are now having in multicultural societies comes from claims or acts of supremacism and imperialism, from claims of being the only nobles or the only chosen, and from our real genetic ethnocentric human nature.  Distinctly different ethnic groups aren't melting together they are competing. This was predicable.

So what it to be done? My readers know what I think: real human nature leads naturally to the cultural expression of regionalism, localism, ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by some sort of federalism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism. Given who we are this also appears to be the best way we can optimize the gene expression we inherited from our human ancestors.

The identity crisis is over and it's politically incorrect


When America accepted multiculturalism related to ignorant and malevolent immigration policies it set up an identity crisis in America, which was also seen across the Western world, especially since the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 which abolished the National Origins Formula, and removed discrimination against non-Northwestern European ethnic groups.

Then began the identity movements, the “me” movements of the hedonistc 1960's, the women's movement, etc. and finally the ethnic identity movement of today which, although politically incorrect, has finally solved the identity crisis in the West brought on by the ignorant and malevolent immigration policies of multiculturalism.

In spite of the big media and the schools being strongly against it, somehow the ethnic identity movement arrived at the social behavior that harmonizes with real human nature, which both tradition (more or less) and the Neo-Darwinist science of sociobiology define 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 selection.

And wouldn't you know it, the ethnic identity movement, which solved the identity crisis, is considered politically incorrect by both liberals and conservatives. Belief in the universalism of equality before God on the right and belief in the universalism of equality before man on the left seems to be the sticking point against the ethnic identity movement, encouraged by those with decidedly unequal wills to power in the Big Media and the schools.

The ethnic identity movement does not affirm the racial supremacism of the old racial nationalism but affirms an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which is the realistic way of thinking about universalism or equality. For example, an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, and protected by federalism.

In any case the identity crisis is over, and it's politically incorrect.

The fatal flaw of conservatism (and of course modern liberalism)


Conservative's will rightly talk and write about how Europe and America have enjoyed a common religion, common law and politics, and a common body of literature (see Russell Kirk), and how this is what holds our civilization together, and how when these common bonds fall the civilization falls. But in this litany of the bonds of civilization modern conservatives leave out ethnic and racial bonds which are the deepest foundation and bonding element of civilizations and cultures. This fatal flaw of conservatism (and of course modern liberalism) and the rise of multiculturalism has led to civil and racial disruptions and virtual civil war. Human nature is genetically and culturally kin-centered and ethnic-centered, which has always been the most successful behavior in survival and reproduction and in the building of cultures. 

Why did this happen? World War Two and Hitler's racial supremacism happened, which since the end of war has increasingly led to the burying of all political talk of the biological origin of social behavior even to the point of making the subject of a positive view of ethnic bonding illegal in some countries. The Big Media and our schools have been mainly responsible for this blockade, tearing apart the reputation and livelihood of anyone who spoke or wrote about the biological origin of social behavior or the ethnic and racial bonds needed to hold our civilizations and cultures together.

The only thing to do is to revive the subject of the biological origin of social behavior along with the positive view of ethnic and racial bonding. Our schools and our Big Media will need to lose their ruinous influence. For example, real human nature suggests that ethnostates and ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the most equitable political configuration for humans beings and human groups to live within. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism. That is what we need to work toward, legally and within the traditional system. It's a noble venture.

Deeper even than religious bonds is the biological origin of social behavior


Conservative's believe that the common bonds of religion hold different ethnic groups together in harmony, so when religion falls the multi-culture falls. That is not quite sophistry and is true but it is an unfinished evaluation. Deeper even than religious bonds is the biological origin of social behavior which includes religion, with kin and ethnic selection as the primary unit of successful survival and reproduction.

For that natural reason religions and cultures end up separating along ethnic lines, because shared genetic traits create more homogeneous cultures. People create cultures more than cultures create people. Religions are driven by the same biological origin of social behavior, working along with the various environments and nurturings of life.

This is why the call to revive ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, needs to be included along with religion in reviving long lasting societies and cultures. This also, more controversially, means that religion needs to get in harmony with the biological origin of social behavior, with kin and ethnic selection understood as the primary unit of successful survival and reproduction.

Conservatism already accepts most of the definition of human nature as described by the science of sociobiology 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 selection.

This religious transformation, like evolution itself, can retain and conserve the best of past religions---the Inward Path to the God within of traditional religions is transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real Godhood. This transformation becomes easier to absorb when ascending levels of Godhood are seen as arrived at by way of material, not spiritual, evolution, as described in theological materialism.

People of color better go slow in waking up the white giant to identity politics


Do people of color really want to create racial or identity politics? I suppose now seems like a good time to bring up their racial causes because whites have their hands tied behind their backs and can't talk about white racial concerns—it's even against the law in some countries! But whites are a powerful force, after all, they largely created the Western world, so people of color better go slow in waking up the white giant to identity politics.

Why doesn't the Alt-right feature more Western geniuses?


Why doesn't the Alt-right feature more Western geniuses, men like the brilliant British/American psychologist Raymond Cattell, or the courageous historian Wilmot Robertson, or the great Neo-Darwinist field of sociobiology, rather than converting to the West-disparaging Russian imperialist Aleksandr Dugin and his Traditionalist School teachers, Guénon and Evola, who did not find science (a jewel of the West) nearly as important as Eastern spiritualism (a jewel of the East). Patriotism is unfairly lost in seeing the flaws of the West, which are redeemable. For example, an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism.

If they needed a God and religion (civilizations rise with religions) why not the material/supermaterial real Godhood reached through material, not spiritual, evolution by employing the Western evolutionary sciences, rather than hearkening back to asceticism, which seeks an inward god by way of blocking all material drives and desires to experience the bliss of "god" (satori, moksha, illumination, etc.), which is really a peak material experience brought on by blocking all material desires. We can retain the traditional Inward Path to bliss but transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real Godhood.

Ethnostates were examined courageously in clear prose by Robertson back in 1993 without veering into Heideggerian metaphysics. A humane religion from science was valiantly mapped out by Cattell. And Edward Wilson's sociobiology makes it impossible for honest people to sidestep the biological origin of social behavior---which includes religion. These men deeply respected the culture-creating West and the Western gene pool; they certainly  inspired my work on theological materialism and ethnostatism.

Can the dissolution and destruction of Western culture continue?


As the social justice warriors now try to stomp out our history by tearing down statues and changing historical names, beneath their push for the cultural Marxism of political correctness is their real aim, which is to stomp out whites. The biological origin of social behavior is always there beneath the surface.

The success of indoctrination in the political correctness of cultural Marxism is really astounding. I've heard more than one young white person say, “Who cares if whites die out, they have f....up the world.” If they are told that that way of thinking is suicidal as well as psychologically and biologically sick, they call it racist.

What is conveniently missing from our schools and the media is the biological origin of our social behavior and the sociobiological truth that real human nature is 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 selection.

It really is amazing to see intellectuals and politicians so afraid of the social justice warriors of cultural Marxism they they will allow whites and white culture to be torn down right in front of them. Will the dissolution and destruction of Western culture continue?!

I doubt it, the will to live is too strong and will rise again. The question is how will we rise? I hope we don't rise by way of old racial supremacism and imperialism but by developing ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates out of our Constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism. That is the instinctive, reasonable, and equitable way to live together and prosper, with the variety that enhances life and ongoing evolution.

Conservative social values can harmonize with ordered evolution, tradition can work along with evolutionary progress


The dynamic between permanence/conservatism and progression/liberalism should be thought of as more a balancing act than a battle, and the closer we can come to balancing these the better. But what we seem to have historically is a wide swing back and forth between the two.

Human nature and the species are wiser than the individual, assuming we define real human nature, which is now and has been at least since hunter/gatherer times: 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 selection.

So permanence/conservatism and progression/liberalism need to take real human nature into account when they define themselves, but they often don't, although permanence/conservatism comes the closest to defining real human nature. The question is asked by both liberals and skeptical conservatives: who defines the beautiful, the true and the good as we evolve toward higher versions of these things?

Conservative social values can harmonize with ordered evolution, tradition can work along with evolutionary progress. Real conservatism affirms change by keeping the best of the past while steadily harmonizing the new with the old. But when it comes to the science of improving human hereditary qualities through breeding, or selective eugenics, conservatives too often follow the modern liberal line of thinking of progress as destroying the old order with the new. But healthy eugenics, like natural evolution in general, is conservative, keeping the best of the past while synthesizing the new.

Eugenics is already shaping the next generation, parents are using testing and screening, genetic counseling, birth control, in vitro fertilization, and genetic engineering, and we can move on from there, as the deceitful paralyzing of evolutionary eugenics begins to wind down. Qualities such as intelligence, emotional stability, conscience (altruism), good health, good sensory organs, longevity, these are some of the aims of eugenics, and these things reach their highest quality, or their zenith, as material evolution moves toward supermaterial Godhood, the deepest goal of life.

What keeps the paleoconservatives from seeing the importance of the biological and genetic origin of our social behavior?


In his usual sarcastic strait-between-the-eyes style Taki Theodoracopulos (Chronicles, March 2019) lists those on the left who hate everything, they are: “women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, blacks, Hispanics, Amercan Indians, college students, college professors, Hollywood stars, Democratic politicians,” and the whole American Psychological Association (117,500 strong) which Taki calls the greatest con job ever invented. All these people now hate white men, want us to become effeminate, and hate President Trump.

When it comes to saying what to do about it Taki, like his friend Pat Buchanan, is a paleoconservative, which is about the best kind of conservative we have today. They seek restrictions on immigration and multiculturalism, decentralization, better controls on free trade, economic nationalism, and an end to our global military marauding. Taki and Buchanan even have the balls to take on the very powerful Israeli and Saudi lobbies.

But something keeps them from seeing the deep importance of the biological and genetic origin of our social behavior, and from seeing that group or ethnic selection is genetically primary in human nature and has been the most successful in survival and reproduction since humans became human.

Their spiritual Christian view of human nature may be the main cause of this blockade, their acceptance of a fallen human nature, along with the inherent universalism of a non-material view of God and life.

Alas, they do not affirm adapting the Constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which given kin and ethnic centered real human nature is the best way to clean up the mess that the experiment of multiculturalism has made of America and the West.

The best solution to multiculturalism is the call for decentralization, ethnostates, ethnopluralism, variety, federalism, and legally adapting the Constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.

Eventually I believe we will also need an end to The Great Spiritual Blockade against seeing and accepting the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood. The old internal experience of God can be retained but transformed and seen as the Godhood externally reached in material evolution.

How justice, art, conservatism, and evolution connect


Justice and art are more than human say the spiritual conservatives, and that is true, but justice and art are not spiritually grounded, they are grounded in the affirmation of material evolution beyond the human toward Godhood. That is the main difference between theological materialism and spiritual conservatism.

We evolve from frogs to Gods assuming we can maintain life that long, which is the main reason why the stability and order of conservatism is necessary. We need to retain the positive genetic mutations toward higher beauty, truth and goodness, all the way to Godhood, and that requires the general condition of stability and order of homogeneous conservative societies.

Variety is good for ongoing evolution, supremacism and imperialism block variety in our competitive crowded world, and that suggests that, given kin and ethnic-centered real human nature, the best political configuration over the long term is ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates.

Creators of philosophical abstractions who make Gods of names


I see Heidegger's idea of Being as Time in line with that tendency of intellectuals to overlook the fact that the “names” of things are an abstraction which only point toward the reality of the thing named---the abstract name is not the thing-in-itself. All philosophy and theology is full of this metaphysical error, with God, Being, and Truth as only names and abstractions, often with no connection to real objects.

Time” is a secondary abstraction or name for the actions and evolution in time of living or dead objects. Objects are the real being, not the abstract name for the course or period they move through. The highest evolved material-not-spiritual Beings are called Godhood, which are evolved to in the material-supermaterial world.

Godhood, religion,Truth, need not be lost when we bring our thinking back to real, evolving, material objects, and that seems to be the fear or concern of the intellectual creators of abstractions who make Gods of names.

Anxiety, disorder, and ethnotherapy


Russell Kirk talked about how anxiety in the modern world has to do with disorder in private existence and disorder in social existence---renewing ourselves may have more to do with renewing order in our societies than it does with psychotherapy.

Usually societies don't renew themselves or bring order because a few intellectuals tell them to. Only at “the hour of their destruction” do societies renew themselves---Kirk had in mind the renewal of the fall of Rome by the Christian faith.

I remember awhile back a new therapy called “ethnotherapy” which seems to have been buried, even though, of course, it had more to do with the special needs and concerns of particular ethnic minorities fitting in with our multicultural societies.

My suggestion regarding private and social anxiety and disorder is that we stand in need of an “ethnotherapy” that sees the need for ethnostates, or an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, and admits the reality that multicultural societies don't work in protecting minority or majority ethnic/racial groups, and so multicultural societies create anxiety and disorder---and natural competition and even civil war can tear us apart. Real human nature is genetically kin and ethnic centered because that was, and remains, most successful in survival and reproduction, and successful in creating longer lasting societies.

The question is will this renewal happen only at the hour of our destruction? How much of the old order can we retain in the process? I believe an ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism. That's the classical conservative way to alleviate much of our private and social anxieties and disorders.

Why I celebrate this country on the Fourth of July


I celebrate this country on the the Fourth of July, including the military, which helped the United States become independent from England. This does not mean that we have no flaws but I think the flaws can be conservatively fixed without radically destroying everything else in the process---and I take “fixing” the country to places where most conservatives don't go. I think of changes as mirroring natural evolution, building on what we have, retaining the best of the past while advancing the best of the new for the future.

Americans like to customize everything, to build or alter according to individual specifications, creativity usually works that way, mirroring evolution. And that is good, as long as American individualism doesn't hypertrophy into rejecting the survival of the group, because group-selection remains the primary unit of selection.

Altruism in real human nature is mainly local and group-centered, as sociobiology has affirmed, and not universally very workable. People naturally love their kin and their group, their ethnic cultures, and beyond that bonding becomes increasingly difficult. 

Customizing or adjusting the Constitutional separation of the powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates seems radical, but it remains conservative because it retains the Roman law and English precedence that our Founders customized or adapted for America. Ethnostates can bring our increasingly diverse culture, which is naturally not getting along well together, back to real and workable human nature.

French and Russian intellectuals, and their subordinates in Western academia, have been attacking the West for some time now, blaming the West for the modernity that in fact brought material comfort and prosperity, the rule of law, freedom, etc, to large groups of people. The intellectuals are right in attacking inflated individual greed and the marauding crony capitalism of the West, but these are negative deviations of the natural free enterprise system and should not alone lead to condemning the whole of the West and modernity, or the people of the West.

A sweeping reductionism that is nevertheless true


Biology is the hardware, culture is the software”

Here is a sweeping reductionism that is nevertheless true: as long the "norms" of human life were based on human nature as defined as closely as possible to how tradition and now neo-Darwinist sociobiology define the norms of human nature, the decay, decline, and collapse of Ancient Greece, the Roman order, the medieval world, and our own time, would not have taken place as it did. 

This means that the norms of human nature are basically being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection or ethnic selection as the primary unit of selection. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against this basic human nature, with such experiments as Marxism, but cultures are eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature, and humans then work within and adapt to the environments they find themselves living in.

What is missing today from this list of the norms in the modern liberal worldview? Missing is being gender defined, heterosexual marriage-making, ethnocentric, and religious-making, among other conservative things, with group-selection or ethnic selection as the primary unit of selection. So we can see that because we have abandoned human nature as defined in the past by tradition and now by neo-Darwinist sociobiology we are headed for collapse resembling the collapse of Ancient Greece, the Roman order, and the medieval world.   

Given these norms of the human nature this suggests that the best political configuration for humans beings to live within is an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. That is what we should be developing and maintaining over the long run. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States from our constitutional separation of powers and states, and protected by federalism.

The return to sanity as politics


Insanity is defined as a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; being mentally ill. If we have the courage to see it, that defines our modern culture.

Virtually all the accepted talk, schools, media, legislation, art, all the propaganda, all the brainwashing, has to do with a human nature that does not exist. Ending inequality, ending racism, ending gender differences, ending heterosexual marriage-making, ending group-selection or ethnic selection, all indicate a crazy state of mind.

This insanity has led to various groups seeking compensation for humans being human, revenge for real human nature being kin-centered, gender defined, and ethnocentric, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

Whole governments have become involved with “never again'”compensation for past wrongs, reparations, affirmative action, etc, when these compensations and reparations are mainly forms of reverse racism and are really exploitation's of the insanity of our modern cultures---as well as being ignoble behavior. A healthy people do not spend all their time in revenge and resentment.

The way out of this mess, this insanity, is to first affirm and accept that human nature really is genetically kin-centered, gender defined, heterosexual marriage-making, ethnocentric, religious-making, and with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.

We need to discard, reject, shitcan, but ultimately cure the insanity of multicultural/multi-ethnic societies, that is, no longer try to jam distinctively different ethnic groups together in the same living space and then demand that they all get along, even making laws against not doing it, when human nature makes it impossible. 

Always beneath the surface of this insanity lurks the sane (but short-term thinking) will to power of the perpetrators of this multicultural/multi-ethnic insanity, along with their cuckolded supporters. 

To return to sanity as politics what we need is an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which is the best political configuration for humans beings to live within, given real human nature.  An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States from out of our constitutional separation of powers and states, and protected from marauding supremacists and imperialists by federalism.

Connecting and not connecting with the political right


I think it was the clear strong paleoconservative writings of Russell Kirk and Pat Buchanan, which was an American version of the older classical conservatism of family, race, rank, aristocracy, and continuity, that caused me to include conservatism in my philosophy. I had to accept the practical side of paleoconservative continuity, bringing the new into the old, the way the evolution of the human brain retained the old reptilian and mammalian brain as it evolved the cerebral cortex on top of them all. We need to work within the system to transform it, as evolution does. But the paleos do not like me using evolution as a comparison because they are skeptical of evolution mainly due to their religious perspective---astoundingly Buchanan seems be unsure that evolution is even real. Which is why I couldn't connect with the paleoconservatives.

My view of the absolute importance of human evolution kept me away from the brilliant seduction of the traditionalist school too, which is where the Alt-right turned from their old racial nationalism. Many on the far right have now gone over to the traditionalist school of Guenon, Evola, and the Russian Dugin, and embraced a non-populist, old spiritual religious, imperialist, hierarchy of rule, and have downplayed or even rejected the idea of evolutionary progress. So I couldn't connect with the traditionalist school.

I drove myself further away from those on the right (and the left) who do affirm evolution as I gradually developed the religious philosophy of theological materialism, which sees a selector in natural selection, a direction, a driving intention in evolution, with evolution moving inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, toward ever-ascending levels of Godhood, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat. This has been a bit further than the conventionally science-minded want to go. And the fact that I conservatively insist on the inclusion of the old inward spiritual religion transformed in the outward evolutionary path of theological materialism does not bring the paleoconservatives back my way on this either.

I never liked supremacism or imperialism on the right, it is not necessary to hate other races to love your own; this has caused the most problems for the right---the hatred is gleefully exploited by the corrupt left. It is antiquated human strategy to promote the supremacy or imperialism of one group against all others as exclusively superior, even if this sociobiological tactic enhanced survival in hunter-gatherer times, this behavior now only brings the overpopulated world together to destroy the supremacist imperialist group.

I wait for the day when forced multiculturalism will give way to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in line with real kin and ethnic-centered human nature. Wilmot Robertson brilliantly suggested this years ago.  I think the real debate should be over how we can conservatively adapt the Constitutional separation of of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Cooperative competition between small ethnostates and regions, protected internally and externally by some sort of federalism, can bring the variety and creativity that evolution prefers, as we all evolve toward Godhood.

The right remains divided or rejects these things, and the left just thinks the biological origin of social behavior is evil.

Isn't it soon time to create cultural and political structures in line with the norms of nature and real human nature?


We have often invented “norms” to fit what Nietzsche called our wills to power, but the will to power is a norm of nature when it is understood to be the will to survival and reproductive success, which exists at the biological origin of our social behavior. These norms are laws of nature, whether we know it or not, or try to hide it.

Many thinkers have tried to disparage the biological origin of our social behavior as being too reductionist, too simplistic, but it is the reality, and their intellectual complications are like sleight of hand tricks to confuse their grabs for power, which in the end are grabs for survival and reproductive success.

It is simply a fiction to think that our social behavior can be free of biological origins or that our cultures have virtually nothing to do with our biological drives, why would we want it to be that way? Look deeper and you will see sleight of hand tricks to confuse the grabs for power for survival and reproductive success.

Marxism, socialism, and now the cultural Marxism of the West are just such sleight of hand tricks. But so can be libertarianism and capitalism, although they are more honest about their wills to power. And politics is a side show of magician tricks and disguises which are really the grabs for power for survival and reproductive success.

Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against nature and human nature with such experiments as Marxism, radical feminism, homosexuality, and postmodern relativism, but they eventually lead to biologically and culturally diseased societies. These cultures are eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature, and humans then work within and adapt to the environments they find themselves living in, and very slowly change.

Isn't it soon time to create cultural and political structures in line with the norms of nature and real human nature? Isn't it time to be aware of the magician tricks and disguises and not be fooled by them? An ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the best political configuration for humans beings to live within because it follows the norms and laws of nature, and follows real human nature, which remains kin and ethnic centered. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could even be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected by federalism.

Do we still need the magician tricks and the disguised grabs for power for survival and reproductive success? Can't we be honest? Can't we tell the truth? Our lives depend on it, or soon will.

We need to now make abstractions unreal and real life real in religion and politics


The following statement is considered “politically incorrect”: Real civilization and culture cannot arise when men and women do not share the same place and ethnic group or genetic pool, homogeneity is then lost, people don't bond well together, subtleties are lost.

The next statement is considered religiously incorrect, which is sort of political incorrectness from the right: Spiritualism is as abstract as cultural Marxism; Godhood is not an abstraction, Godhood is material/supermaterial and evolved to in the material world.

Getting back to reality in religion and politics largely means rejecting or at least transforming old unreal abstractions. Then we can create societies in harmony with real human nature, which is fundamentally kin and ethnic centered, with religions that make sacred the evolution of a variety of life toward ascending levels of Godhood.

Both religious and political thinkers have taken the belief in abstractions to absurd levels. Let the abstractions of science, religion and philosophy be seen as only mirrors of real life and only secondary to real life, not the other way around. We have inherited spiritual nothingness from traditional religions, Plato, and their followers. We need to now make abstractions unreal and real life real in religion and politics.

The second Democratic debate preached the reverse racism of people of color


The second Democratic debate last night had Joe Biden standing with his head bowed as Kamala Harris lectured him about the evils of white racism, and no one, certainly not Biden, had the courage, or perhaps even the knowledge to declare that Harris is really preaching and promoting the reverse racism of people of color. That was the white elephant, the 500 pound gorilla in the room for these ludicrous Democratic candidates.

The answer to racism is not the reverse racism of Harris, or even the attempt to wipe out racism; the attempt to wipe out racism is like an attempt to wipe out human nature---people simply are are biologically and culturally kin and ethnic centered. Kamala Harris is right to promote her own ethnic group and culture, and all of the cuckold white Democratic candidates are wrong in supporting these attacks on their own ethnic group and culture. In biologically and psychologically healthy cultures this would be obvious.

We wait for the day when forced multiculturalism naturally gives way to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. The real debate should be over how we can conservatively adapt the Constitutional separation of of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. But that is for another time and a healthier people. The question is will it be before or after great civil and ethnic devastation?

Five past blog entrances on how the Twofold Path of theological materialism and the projected Theoevolutionary Church synthesizes past religions and science

(Some of the links are no-longer working)  

 

The Twofold Path transforms the God of Odin and Christ 

 (from July 30, 2017)


Colin Cleary suggested a few years ago in his essay, "What is Odinism?" (recently republished in Counter Currents, part one) that the key feature of Odin was his quest for knowledge and power. Cleary thinks that Odin and Odinism essentially sought to "become God" in that quest for knowledge and power.

The Christian world has disparaged the idea of becoming God as being highly blasphemous. Traditional religions have demanded that their God be spiritual and certainly beyond the vulgar and evil material world, the desires of the material flesh are to be blocked or overcome in order to see the God Within.

Odin could be called the first Western Faustian man (although he probably was originally Asian-Aesir) seeking knowledge and power at all costs. But being Faustian, Western knowledge has moved on from Odin to where we can now see that the path to real Godhood is through material evolution.

But conservatism is vitally important in the lives of human beings and human culture, that is, retaining what was long developed as important to humans and to human survival, which is comfortable in the lives of people. The culture of Christianity is virtually baked into Western civilization, but it can be transformed, just as Christianity retained but transformed Judaism, Odinism, and pagan Greeks and Romans.

The Inward Path to the God Within of Christ (and Buddha) can be retained but can now be seen as the first symbolic experience of the real Godhood reached through the Outward Path of material evolution. This is seen in the Twofold Path of theological materialism.

Faustian knowledge was obtained by standing on the shoulders of many men who not unlike Odin and Christ hung on modern trees of religious and scientific suffering and study. The Twofold Path conservatively does not reject either Odinism or Christianity. We can actually become Gods by affirming the material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, the transformed God of Odin and Christ.

Mythical/historical metaphors as history-religion-ontology


Camille Paglia viewed the ceaseless battle of nature (which she says is violent, irrational, untamable, and female) versus culture (aesthetic, logical, ever struggling and failing to tame nature, and, yes, male).

I could see Paglia's gendering images in relation to theological materialism, but I would adapt them a bit: the primal material as female gives birth to every cosmos, but within the primal material is also the material will, spirit-will, or as I call it Tirips, as male, which activates material life to evolve toward supermaterial Godhood, with many stops and starts along the evolutionary way.

I might compare these metaphors to the old myth/history of Odin migrating from Asia (thus he is of the Aesir) (proto-Scythian?), and when he reached the North Germanic region, which included Southern Sweden, a war took place between the North Germanic Vanir (old mixed Cro Magnon?) and the Aesir. Eventually a truce was created and a meld of the religions and cultures of the Vanir and Aesir was forged. The Vanir Earth Mother Nerthus, and her male consort, Ingwaz, then synthesized with the Aesir Sky Father, Odin, and his family, eventually creating the mature faith of Odinism, and its people.

But being conservative I work from the transformation of the Western Christian religion with theological materialism, where the material world evolves from the primal material, not God, toward real supermaterial Godhood. The Inward Path of traditional religion is retained but seen as a preliminary inward experience of the real Godhood reached through evolution---and this also can be synthesized more smoothly with modern science. In this way we could metaphorically harken way back to the very old Swedish Nerthus and Ingwaz, if we wanted to.

Dilemmas of the Alt Right


The way I see it the main dilemma of the Alt Right was how to deal with the ethnocentrism of real human nature while also dealing with religion, science, conservatism, nationalism, and radical racialism.

Religion versus science presented itself, with the science-minded Alt Right moving toward a scientific racialism and rejecting religion. A lesser number moved toward transhumanism preferring intelligent machines to humans. A larger group moved toward the Traditionalist School of Guenon and Evola and are now mainly followers of Aleksandr Dugin, who hates the West---this school downplays science in favor of spiritualism over materialism, but keeps an element of racialism-as-tradition. Another wing moved toward paganism, such as Odinism. Perhaps the largest group on the far right never quite fit in with the Alt Right, they are the racial supremacists, sometimes in the Hitler mode. Others on the far right moved toward a racialist version of Christianity arguing that Christ was not Jewish, etc. Few if any moved toward conservatism or paleoconservatism.

I faced many of the same dilemmas of the Alt Right and the paleoconservatives, and I developed theological materialism, having been impressed and influenced by Raymond Cattell's religion from science called Beyondism, Edward Wilson's deep sociobiology, Russell Kirk and Pat Buchanan's paleoconservatism, the ethnostatism of Wilmot Robertson, and the esoteric religious thinking of people like Guenon, and others. I also dealt philosophically with the courageous Friedrich Nietzsche, and later, Heidegger. I believe I included or synthesized these thinkers in developing theological materialism, which sees the material world evolving to supermaterial Godhood, the God first symbolically but incompletely glimpsed from within by traditional religion.

I eventually found a way to be a conservative patriotic American, grounded in religion, philosophy, and science, and affirming the constitutional separation of powers and states in the United States, slightly amended to save itself, by becoming an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, where different ethnic groups within ethnostates can be what they actually are and what human nature actually is, kin and ethnic-centered, rejecting the various forms of ethnic supremacy and imperialism as unworkable and immoral. The sacred goal of life is to materially evolve toward supermaterial Godhood in the cosmos.

The Struggles to Overcome the Great Spiritual Blockade


The Great Spiritual Blockade gained momentum around the time of the great sages, Buddha, Zarathustra, Lao Tzu, Christ, and Socrates (who made a spiritual God of reason), that is, more or less around the Sixth Century BC. Since that time some men have tried to to rise up against the Blockade, to save the material world from being disparaged and slandered.

There was a rising at least during the Enlightenment of the 18th century, and later Nietzsche and a few others also rose up against the Blockade, usually rejecting or throwing out the great sages in their attempts to unblock the Blockade. Wagner might have revived Odinism, Nietzsche nearly created a new religion of the superman based on his version of presocratic culture. And science, carrying on from the Enlightenment, bonded with a strict Godless naturalism or materialism. Hegel and Marx also tried to unblock the spiritual blockade with their versions of philosophy and materialism even though they created spiritual utopias in the process.

The grip of the Great Spiritual Blockade remains, although the religions and philosophies of the great sages have been slowly fading in the West, replaced not with another religion or political philosophy but with the great license of libertarian individualism, or the nothingness of hedonistic nihilism, or in the middle-east with a fundamentalist Islam. Science has tried to remain materialistically neutral which has led to its general social impotence. Modern versions of evolutionary religion or spirituality are often updates of Buddhism dealing with or dismissing the material world from the old perspective of so-called non-material inward bliss, e.g Ken Wilber.

The theological materialism of the Theoevolutionary Church overcomes the Great Spiritual Blockade with the Twofold Path, by including the great sages of the Blockade in the Involutionary Inward Path to the symbolic-experience of the Father Within, even as it affirms the Evolutionary Outward Path of material and supermaterial evolution to real Godhood. The old God or Father Within experienced as bliss is conservatively included but seen as attained in reality through the Outward Path of material and supermaterial evolution. Science and religion can even join forces as we unblock the Great Spiritual Blockade so that we may evolve toward unending levels of Godhood in the cosmos.

Ecumenical Involution And Beyondist Evolution In the Theoevolutionary Church

 

I see no reason to avoid the ecumenical approach to Revealed Religions, Christianity, Ancient Greek philosophy, Buddhism, Bahai Faith, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Taoism, Odinism, etc., as they reveal variations of the Perennial Religion and the Involutionary Inward Path. There has been Perennial Knowledge of this Tradition since prehistory. As a dweller in the Western world our Involutionary Inward Path affirms Traditional religions and their revelations.

But the Involutionary Inward Path contains only half of the new religious order of renewal of the Theoevolutionary Church, we have also seen and affirmed the Evolutionary Outward Path to Godhood. A brilliant Darwinian kind of Evolutionary Outward Path was developed by Professor Raymond Cattell, called Beyondism, which has been supermaterialized in the Theoevolutionary Church. Beyondism helps define the scientific path to Godhood evolved to outwardly.

Traditional Christians who worry about the weakening aspects of ecumenicism can be heartened by our return to the most ancient Perennial Tradition, which was affirmed and enlarged by Jesus Christ. There need be no more religious wars regarding the Involutionary Perennial Religion. Also, religion has been dying in the West and can be strengthened by the Evolutionary Outward Path of material evolution to Godhood.

The vital material aspect of the world has been largely blocked (see The Great Spiritual Blockade) by the exclusively Inward Path of the Gnostic traditionalist perspective. The Evolutionary Outward Path of the projected Theoevolutionary Church reintroduces change and even competition in the material world, as we must materially evolve to the Godhood we first saw Inwardly. Such things as Federalism and Subsidiarity with small independent states, or ethnostates (which can work harmoniously with the original separation of powers and states in the Constitution of the United States) may provide the base for both the Inward and Outward Paths to Godhood, the Divine Twin Paths.

Panderers and cuckolds for President 6/27/2019


It was embarrassing for our country to watch the panderers and cuckolds at the Democratic debate for president last night. No subtly at all there. It was like vote buying, I almost expected the fools to start throwing twenty dollar bills at the audience. There is law against vote buying (42 USCS § 1973i(c)---maybe it needs to be expanded.

Symbolic of the Democrats is Beto O'Rourke, who in the Texas of old would have been banished to the edge of town as a silly fool for being a traitor to his own people. But like most Democrats of his age goofy “Beto” (a common Spanish nickname of course) is an overly enthusiastic panderer and cuckold for any race, ethnic group, culture, or country other than his own.

Elizabeth Warren is just a better educated version of O'Rourke, if being a socialist can be called being better educated---she is just a more polished panderer and cuckold. Joe Biden is an unctuous idiot. President Trump should be able to beat these people fairly easily, if he himself can keep from pandering to those who want him to go to war with Iran, or those who don't want him to put tariffs on their virtually traitorous global importing businesses.

When the moral imagination leads to a spiritual non-materialism it leads away from reality, but not necessarily away from religion


T.S. Eliot and Russell Kirk rightly worried that the humanities and literature were turning away from the traditional Western “moral imagination,” and things certainly have gone that way. They worried that literature wasn't doing its job of adjusting to the conditions of human existence by adjustment to the traditional norms of Christian and Western tradition and was instead adjusting to weird norms or not adjusting at all.

But the “norms” are really related to human nature and so the judgment comes first from defining human nature and then from seeing how humans have socially and culturally adjusted to real human nature. It so happens that traditional religions did a good job of defining human nature the way the non-religious evolutionary sciences much later defined human nature as being basically 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 selection.

But you'll notice no spiritualism in that sociobiological definition other than the general tendency of humans to create religions for successful survival and reproductive purposes. And it is from here that we can see the modern moral imagination go jumping off from the traditional norms of the Christian and Western imagination. This was not due to an “idyllic” or “demonic” imagination infiltrating into our cultures, as Eliot and and Kirk defined it, but was basically due to the natural biological will to power of the “usurpers.”

I know that philosophers tend to think their thinking is beyond the pedestrian drives of biology but they are deeply biased by it. You will notice that many of the pre and postmodern philosophers were not Christian: Husserl, Leo Strauss, Derrida, Foucault, etc. and they felt no compunction biologically or culturally to adjust to the conditions of human existence by adjusting to the norms of the traditional Western Christian moral imagination, and instead adjusted to ethnic norms, weird norms, no norms at all, or a relativity of all values.

None of them adjusted to the biological origin of social behavior, and that explains their biases. The work now of literature and the humanities is to take the dusty physical and biological sciences and give them a moral imagination which is not dusty. For example, psychological novels can apply the moral imagination to adjusting to human nature as defined by evolutionary psychology and sociobiology. When the moral imagination leads to a spiritual non-materialism it leads away from reality, but not necessarily away from religion (see theological materialism), so futurist novels can deal with the moral dilemmas of materially involving to real supermaterial Godhood.

Appropriating cultural appropriation


The left is stupid to open the cultural appropriation can of worms, blaming whites for culturally appropriating nonwhite cultures, such as going after a white high school girl for wearing a Chinese cheongsam to her high school prom; although it was stupid and even suicidal of whites to abandon their own culture in the first place, cheered on of course by the media and the schools.

White Western culture has been unrestrainedly appropriated and copied by every ethnic group in the world but whites have said nothing about it, probably for fear of opening that other can of worms called “racism.”

But if we think about it a little deeper we end up saying more power to the ethnic identity movement, it could help revive White Western culture which has been dying largely do to whites culturally appropriating nonwhite cultures. Whites can appropriate cultural appropriation.

We will probably end up with ethnostates in the long run, which is the best and perhaps only way to end the increasing ethnic squabbling in unworkable multicultural societies. Human nature remains biologically kin and ethnic-centered, and that is healthy and good.

The vital biological-evolutionary reality of man, religion, and Godhood


Spiritual religious moralists want us to believe that without the spiritual view of human nature we are merely “naked apes.” That sells us short, and is a nasty thing to do as well.

Yes, modern life is morally aimless without traditional religion, but the religious spiritual view of human nature is blocking us from evolving in the material world all the way to supermaterial Godhood, because their view of God is spiritual and not material and disparages the material world, so we remain naked apes.

Post-Christian philosophers have rejected the spiritual religious moralists but in its place they have found only meaninglessness and offered only a relativity of values and morals; they have even denied that there is a biologically derived human nature. So they will never do.

The Guenon/Evola-founded Traditionalist School, now represented by the Russian Alexander Dugin, isn't the answer either, it turns away from the modern world and rejects Western science in mystical or religious pronouncements about one spiritual tradition uniting them all. The real synthesis comes from including science in religion (Guillaume Faye's Archeofuturism does at least try to include modern science.) The real religious problem comes from the non-material spiritualism of both paganism and traditional religions, which now needs to take a secondary backseat to the vital biological-evolutionary reality of man, religion, and Godhood.

There is no first beginning and no final ending in the universe but we can evolve to an unending series of material/supermaterial Godhoods in the material and supermaterial world. This doesn't kill religion or Godhood, but it does require a transformation of religion and Godhood from the spiritual to the material and supermaterial. (see theological materialism

This means we will get our religious and scientific satisfactions not from dreaming about a union of the finite with a non-material infinite but from reaching different levels of Godhood by way of material evolution. This is the sacred task of future religion and science, which can take away our modern meaninglessness, the relativity of values and morals, and reject the stunted spiritual view of man as merely a naked ape.

It will require stout hearts and durable egos to bring this religious/scientific overview to people today. But it's well worth the effort because humans and civilizations never last long without realistic long-term religion.
