Conservatives are right to say that conservatism is not really universal or infallible, like the communist manifesto, and that the U.S. Constitution is not exportable, and yet they will sometimes admit, as Russell Kirk did, that there is a "universal conservatism" which is the "impulse" or "yearning" among all people to conserve their culture, history and race. But at the root of universal conservatism, or deep-conservatism as I call it, is the activation to conserve the gene pool of kin, ethnic group, and race and the cultures they develop. Even "order," which is so important to Burke and Kirk, is put in place because orderly societies are more successful in survival and reproduction than disorderly societies.
Human nature evolved to prefer kin, ethnic group, and race because those traits were more successful in survival and reproduction for individuals and groups. Even altruism, being for others, was created as the preference for kin and ethnic group and weakens as we move out toward universalism, which is the main reason why communism and globalism don't work well and tend to use force to impose unnatural altruism.
Universal conservatism or deep-conservatism instinctively and reasonably calls for ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. That is where the impulses and yearnings of human nature are most naturally directed---it could even be accomplished in an orderly and conservative way. In the U.S. with the growing variety of ethnic groups, each with different genetic pools and different agendas, we could with our Constitutional separation of powers and states legally and gradually develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected by federalism. That would affirm a true universal conservatism or deep-conservatism in harmony with what we actually are.

The Big Media, Big Tech, and our culturally Marxist universities have been successfully establishing a moral and social order that is not only opposed to our history and tradition but making big profits from pornography while also heavily promoting leftist propaganda...Repeat that please so I don't have to type it again.
They have those who oppose them locked in strait-jackets of political correctness declaring them unhinged bigots and racists, and socially destroying anyone who opposes their lies.
Then if you take it as far as I and few others do and insist on the biological origin of our social behavior, which instinctively and rationally calls for ethnostates or an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, you are defined as a dangerous version of crazy Don Quixote. But the reality is that rather than tilting at windmills and thinking them dragons you are tilting at real dragons which the Big Media, Big Tech, and our culturally Marxist universities insist are windmills, and punish anyone who says otherwise...These people have become the real enemy.
Then if you go even further and develop changes in traditional religion, as I do with the philosophy of theological materialism, and admit the reality of the biological origin of even our religious behavior, which points toward evolving to ascending levels of real Godhood in the material world, you lose even the paleoconservatives.
I suppose I believe that truth eventually prevails, but it's not a very secure belief...No one wise ever believed such an undertaking could be easy. I'm just whining to my friends....Wait, what friends?

Beneath the liberal and even conservative masks lies real human nature. The masks don't blend well today with the primary kin and ethnic centered emphasis of real human nature and the biological origin of social behavior.
The masks partly come off with civil disruptions fueled by ethnic competition and resentment, but usually we again see words like "equality" and "universalism" used to mask the special interests of ethnic groups.
Hiding real biological motives has been standard operating procedure for human beings, is it still necessary? Why can't we admit what we are and then try to set up sociopolitical or more precisely sociobiological social structures in harmony with what we really are?
As heard here often, human nature has been affirmed throughout human history to this day as being basically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, territorial, and even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against real human nature, with such experiments as Marxism, and now cultural Marxism, but cultures are eventually pulled back by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect human nature, and humans then work within and adapt to the environments they find themselves living in.
What would humans do without their masks? Create new masks I suppose. But isn't it almost time to create a mask-free Ethnopluralist Party, or Ethnostates Party, or Global Ethnostates Party, protected by some form of federalism, in line with real human nature? If we wait too long our political masks will have brought us not much left on earth to live on.

Africa is the most recent audacious example of this, where the capitalist's colonized Africa and then later the left called for decolonization, which led to bloody African dictators and a big fall in the standard of living for all except the dictators. Now China, the new imperialists as national socialists, have blocked their people from any objection to getting at the large resources of Africa.
Let Africa be Africa! But then do not accept immigrants fleeing to Europe and America as the consequence of Africa being African. Let Africa work out its own problems!
The same common sense goes for letting ethnic groups be ethnic groups in their own ethnostates across the world; don't try to colonize them with imperial arrogance and greed, but then, do not accept fleeing immigrants who naturally will not assimilate into different cultures.
In any case, reality points toward the long term political/cultural solution of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, in America, Europe, China, even in Africa which has always tended to go that way anyway---with some sort of federalism mainly devoted to protecting the independence of ethnostates. That is the political/cultural structure most in harmony with real human nature which developed many thousands of years ago and remains kin-centered, gender defined, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, among other conservative things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. All else is mainly political propaganda.

Many people turned to the libertarian religion of greed putting on blinders to the decadent culture surrounding them. You could put your kids in private schools and you could buy season tickets to orchestra halls, but the same cultural Marxism of political correctness was taught in the private schools, and the orchestras increasingly featured atonal crap. When you finally get home from work late, pour a scotch, and turn on your smart TV to relax, all you can find is people jumping in bed together for one night stands, wives and children as well as sports devoted to the humiliation of white men, and foul language everywhere.
Dropping out of culture "for the sake of sheltering one’s faith and family from corrosive modernity and cultivating a more traditional way of life," as Rod Dreher put it in defining the Benedict Option, is really a horrible choice to have to make, it seems like laying down in the fetal position and accepting that all is lost. But if you have tried to fight the Big Media, Big Government, Big Business, Big Academia, or Big Tech, all does seem lost, they all have adapted their impressive wares to the same cultural decay and degeneration. And for psychologically healthy people the ascetic model of rejecting the material world, which in the case of the monks meant being celibate, looks like accepting death as the solution.
I for one fight the decay and degeneration with philosophy in general, even though I reach only hundreds rather than the millions reached by the vile Big Media who I believe are the biggest enemies of cultural health that we have. And some of my readers only watch me walk the tight-rope wondering when I will fall off.
But you do what you can do, and I much appreciate those who follow my work. I say hang in there, real human nature will not accept forever a culture of crap.

The late Russell Kirk is my favorite conservative writer, along with Pat Buchanan, but I think Kirk protests just a bit too much that conservatism is not an ideology.
Where conservatism might not be visionary and unrealistic or idealistic it is a system of ideas and ideals and contains economic or political theory and policy as much as any other ideology.
The defense that conservatism approves of a range of systems as long as there are conservators of that system does not make conservatism not an ideology, it just makes conservatism a wiser ideology.
I also think that while Kirk, like Burke, emphasizes "prudent change" he does not emphasize evolutionary change, and he does not include even prudent change regarding a transcendent-spiritual order, or the fall of man and the imperfect or sinful nature of man, when that is where change most needs to happen in ongoing conservatism.
Politics is both the art of the possible and the ideal, but Kirk wants to affirm only what he deems as the possible, which does not include the future biological evolution of man. The biological origin of our social behavior, which includes religion, actually ends the intellectual defense of postmodern relativism and the cultural Marxist ideologues, but it also takes some of the virtue-signaling away from conservatives.
The goal of materially evolving to Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion. Defining the internal material force of life which activates life toward evolving toward higher and higher forms, and eventually to Godhood, while being shaped by natural outside evolution, may be a bit further than religion and science want to go, but we need to go there.
As I wrote a few days ago, the idyllic imagination which Kirk is skeptical of can project the evolution of material life all the way to supermaterial Godhood, which is best done by preserving the best of the past, and by conserving variety, as we evolve toward higher forms of the good, the true, and the beautiful. That is the change of "deep conservatism," which is more prudent than reckless.

I would say that the human nature is universal and then culture and geography create variations and genetic adaptations in the way universal human nature is expressed.
Culture and geography feed back and change some of the genetic traits of human nature to better enhance the the penultimate purpose of it all, which is survival and reproductive success (in the ongoing ultimate goal of material life evolving all the way to supermaterial Godhood.)
Culture can also be instinctive, like language, and not merely a creation prompted by the outside environment. Religion too is inborn and part of basic human nature, we instinctively seek social bonding in religious answers to chaos, or now with political ideologies---it helps us survive better.
So different ethnic groups develop genetic variations from adapting to living in different geographies and climates and therefore develop variations on the cultures they create. These ethnic differences don't change much when living in modern, artificial, multi-cultural multi-ethnic societies, no-matter how much propaganda is thrown at us about how we are all the same.
Competition and civil disruptions then naturally develop in multi-cultural multi-ethnic societies largely do to those old ethnic genetic variations in the way universal human nature is expressed. That is why ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates appear to be the most natural and harmonious sociopolitical form for human beings to live within.
The main problem in establishing a natural ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the few elite who gain financial and political global power by promoting border-less multi-cultural multi-ethnic societies, no-matter how much social disharmony they bring to the many.
But these artificial multi-cultural multi-ethnic societies won't last forever because, as E. O, Wilson said, "The genes hold culture on a leash. The leash is very long, but inevitably cultural values will be constrained in accordance with their effects on the human gene pool."

Aggressive empires, marauding globalism, and megalomaniacal states caused the devastation of our World Wars, they were not caused by nationalism, patriotism, populism, ethnostates, or ethnocentrism
"Politics ought to be adjusted not to human reason but to human nature, of which reason is but a part..." Edmund Burke
The present global elite, the media, and the academics call for the subordination of nations and ethnic groups to globalism---think of that asinine globalist speech by Macron on Armistice Day---although they are usually more indirect and weaseling about promoting globalism. Nationalism, patriotism, populism, ethnostates, and ethnocentrism are exactly what the globalists don't want, even though these things are a deep and genetically-derived part of real human nature; it is real human nature that created patriotism, populism, and ethnocentrism as the best means for a people to survive and reproduce successfully.
Aggressive empires, marauding globalism, and megalomaniacal states caused the devastation of our World Wars, they were not caused by nationalism, patriotism, populism, ethnostates, or ethnocentrism. Civil disruptions are mainly caused by trying to melt distinctly different people into one motley living space, they are not caused by the ethnocentric traits of real human nature, which tend to prefer ethnostates.
All this global chaos is promoted and instituted by a very few global elite, the media, and academics for their own selfish ends...They have to be courageously curbed if we are all ever to live in relative peace.

What mischief has been done by theologians and philosophers who preferred to worship abstract ideas more than life
It was a metaphysical and philosophical error to make a God of logos or reason. That error caused the worship of words, equations and ideas which are only definitions of Gods. "Truth" was labeled in the same abstract way; a living thing is more important than its definition.
That version of old nominalism had it right in specifically denying the real existence of abstract objects that do not exist in space and time. What mischief has been done by theologians and philosophers who preferred to worship abstract ideas more than life.
We can have Gods and religion but it is overdo time to see Godhood as living objects we can evolve in the material and supermaterial to become, not spiritually, and not only abstractly cogitated. We can appreciate superior reasoning and brilliant ideas known and unknown, but logos, reason, or the natural order are not God or Godhood, the natural order evolves Gods.
Charles Kesler described the "cold civil war" between the left and the right (Imprimis, Oct, 2018). Can this combative mix be resolved and prevent a hot civil war? It can if the better parts of human nature prevail---but that's a big "if."
I can agree with parts of both the right and the left. The idea on the left of a "living Constitution" rightly leans toward the evolutionary side of human nature, toward evolutionary rights---but not revolutionary rights which some on the left and the right encourage. And the left today, in contrast to the apotheosis of the individual rights by conservatives, tracks the rights of various groups or ethnic groups which is in harmony with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection in human nature, followed by individual selection. But the left then goes on to champion the rights of almost every kind of perversion which is not in harmony with real human nature---many in the left don't even think there is a human nature believing human nature springs only from ones environmental upbringing. Human nature remains genetically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, territorial, and even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other mostly conservative things.
The right affirms a reinvigoration of federalism which is in harmony with the growing variety of ethnic groups in America with different genetic pools and different agendas who could, with federalism and the Constitutional separation of powers and states, develop an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in harmony with real human nature ---but not secession which could endanger the federal national protection needed for the states in a world that continues to have marauding imperialism.
All of these vital changes need to be done legally, constitutional, and not by revolutionary means which almost never work and cause great biological and cultural convulsions in life...The Right/Left Coalition?

The often quoted statement that "power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely" by 19th century British politician Lord Acton is an abstract statement, but beneath that abstraction is the fact that it is individual people and individual groups, often ethnic groups, who do the corrupting. Human nature remains as it has been since humans became human: kin-centered, hierarchical, ethnocentric and territorial, among other conservative traits, because that was the most successful means to survival and reproductive success.
Reality suggests that fragmentation, geographical segmentation, and differentiation are not the bad things that Big Government, Big Business, Big Media, and Big Tech tell us they are as they seek global domination. We don't want to go back to a world without automobiles, the internet, or smart phones, but these big enterprises and the people who run them have corrupted our world and need to be broken down.
Localism is not a "yoke" that "restricts" our movement and we are not "confined" by geographical or ethnic segmentation, as the Big Everythings tell us we are; our best biological and cultural survival have always taken place locally and regionally, and best in ethnostates, until the people who push Big Government, Big Business, Big Media, and Big Tech corrupt that natural localism. History has repeated this corruption by Bigness with various kinds of empires time and again.
So corrupt Big Government, Big Business, Big Media, and Big Tech need to be broken down, and will be, one way or another; but it better not be by another version of Bigness, such as big government fascism from the left or the right, but by a constitutional separation of powers and states, eventually ethnostates, protected by some version of federalism.
This needs to be done or we may lose the whole earth.

Raymond Cattell's best argument against war, at least for evolutionary ends, is that it is the quality rather than the size of the group that should be the basis for natural selection, whereas in war, size has counted. In another sense of this idea, special forces now prove this point about quality over quantity in the fourth generation warfare we will now be engaged in.
This for me underlines the realist position on war and the strategic position of the U.S., which was reiterated by Barry Posen: the U.S. is enormously powerful, geography favors the U.S. due to ocean barriers and relativity weak neighbors, and we will best procure our security with a slow transition back to Realism, and away from the liberal and neoconservative idea of hegemony in the world, trying to maintain unipolar world dominance, which does not take into account identity politics, ethnic, national, and religious, which are most powerfully against a unipolar world.
The neoconservatives have taken the Hellenized position of a universal elite who think ideas can transcend tribes, cultures and epics, but this never worked well with America. Like Rome, we were, or used to be, too pragmatic for the idealism of Greek philosophy, we wanted to build roads more than philosophy.
Nevertheless, we need to build more than roads, philosophy needs to get back to philosophical naturalism. I believe Western religion also needs to affirm theological materialism. We are realistically evolving to Godhood in the material and supermaterial world, and we need long term realistic strategies to do so, in which war is to be avoided---as mentioned above, it destroys quality and favors quantity. And we need to take into account identity politics, ethnic, national, religious, which are most powerfully against a unipolar world. Ethnic or racial imperialism will eventually give way to ethnopluralism, with regions and states set aside for ethnic cultures and protected by some sort of federalism. Then we can all best get along. That is a deeper realism.
Both science and religion contain elements of the truth, as someone said, "truth is truth is truth" and truth can come in different fields.
But the deepest truths seem to be interchangeable or synthesizable with other fields. The idea that religion and science have different kinds of truth always seems to evade completeness or rationalize unfinished or lazy ideas.
Religion, philosophy, politics, art, etc., should agree on the deepest truths; if they don't, then we probably don't have the truth. All the fields are, or should be, transmutable or exchangeable, it's even a way to check the truth of truths.
This is what is pursued in the philosophy of theological materialism.

Many people in the "civilized" world have virtually no religion or mythology that interests them and so they often feel lost in the modern world. But order and direction can be brought back to the people and the culture by reattaching religion, philosophy, poetry, and science to the biological origin of our social behavior---which perhaps most importantly includes religion---that is, by affirming the evolution of material life to supermaterial, not spiritual, Godhood. We can then have an historical religious synthesis worthy of the past, present, and future.
Godhood is related to natural, not supernatural or spiritual forces. The spiritual was deeply inserted in religion---but not maliciously. As science and reason advanced, the religious insistence on the supernatural and spiritual led to the rejection of God, religion, and even morality. So it was religion itself and not merely science and reason which was responsible for the rejection of God, religion, and morality.
We can return to Godhood, religion, and morality, after the devastation caused by its loss, with the epic transformation in seeing Godhood related to natural not supernatural spiritual forces. We evolve unendingly in the material world to higher levels of supermaterial Godhood. That is a change in metaphysics as prodigious as the discovery of reason and science by the Greeks, only without causing the the slow death of Godhood, religion, and morality.

Natural law creates order between man and nature, but this means we must know or understand natural law to be in harmony with it. Traditional religion needs deeper knowledge of the natural world, which has evolved since the time of the religious founders, and Aquinas. To be specific, we need knowledge of natural evolution and its religious implications.
Theological materialism recognizes the supreme principle of evolution in nature and the cosmos. Material/supermaterial evolution takes us to the Godhood first spoken about or symbolically experienced in the inward paths of traditional religion. Vital knowledge of the natural evolution of life to Godhood in the Outward Path is missing in traditional religions. The material/supermaterial evolution to continuing levels of Godhood transforms but does not reject the traditional involutionary Inward Path to the material soul-within of traditional religion.
Communities, ethnostates, and nations of men need to be in harmony with the natural law of the supreme principle of evolution. The key to man's downfall was moving away from the natural evolution of life toward Godhood. We can now aid our evolution toward Godhood with both religion and science.

President Trump's battle against the media is only the beginning skirmish of what should at least be a war of legality
The entertainment industry and the big media is now the biggest enemy of America and the West. They must be evil geniuses if they knew when they were gathering media power, by any means necessary, the degree of power they would eventually have over American culture. They have used their media power to destroy traditional American culture, gradually at first, until now the only thing left for them to do is to produce xx-rated sex and violence as the main slime of popular prime time programming. And we have seen the power of the news media to make and break politicians, foment wars, and brainwash the people in cultural Marxism.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Supreme Court opinion written in 1919 regarding free speech or actions said that, "The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic. [...] The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent."
The destruction of traditional American culture by the entertainment industry and the big media has certainly been a clear and present danger that continues to bring about many substantive evils. But there is no viable movement to curb or dismantle the entertainment industry and the big media, indeed, the number of destructive media outlets and media devices is expanding. President Trump's battle against the media is only the beginning skirmish of what should at least be a war of legality.

Watching President Trump's worthy SOTU speech we saw the usual mannerism and gestures of self-importance, overbearing pride, even blowhardism, jutting his jaw out almost as defensively as Mussolini did in his speeches. That visual display of self-importance and overbearing pride causes problems for Trump, especially among Democrats, because liberals and Democrats are shallow and immature and can't see past the outward mannerism and gestures of people and political systems.
That is why the Democrats and liberals fall so hard for shallow and immature "political correctness," which is cultural Marxism, they see only the surface trappings of human behavior, and they don't see that it is more important what one does than how we look or what we say when doing it.
With Trump in office the stock market is at an all-time high, unemployment (for all ethnic groups) is at a 16 year low, he renegotiated NAFTA and withdrew from the Trans Pacific Partnership keeping jobs here, he brought conservative judges to our court system, he has fought against the corrupt media, and he is bringing our military home from across the world, to name only a few of his accomplishments in a very short time.
He does make bad moves, such as continuing to support the greatest influence dealers in Washington, the Wall Street lobby, the fossil fuel lobby, and especially the Israeli and Saudi lobbies who pay off and threaten corrupt government officials and representatives to get them to take actions that are completely against the interests of our nation. And of course Trump has no understanding of the importance of affirming and adjusting to natural ethnocentrism in human survival, reproduction, and cultural creations.
Yet unlike the shallow Democrats and liberals who fall for demagogues, conservative's know that there is never a perfect man, perfect leader, or perfect system---making strenuous effort toward any goal is always necessary.

Reason can be politically manipulated by cunning intellectuals, but instincts are not as easily maneuvered
Trumpian nationalism hasn't decisively won against the international left and the global neocons, but if it can prevail, the next task will be to save the nation internally by allowing an ethnopluralism of ethnostates to form, fulfilling the real promise of the constitutional separation of powers and states. But people aren't always rational, and reason can be and is manipulated by cunning intellectuals.
Instincts are not as easily manipulated. As E.O. Wilson 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 nature remains kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, territorial, and even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
The international left and the global neocons have the Big Media and the schools completely on their side, and the people have been brainwashed by them. But the instincts of modern liberals cause many of them to build walls around their homes or move to the suburbs to be around their own kind, even though they talk passionately of the benefits of globalism and how we are all universally and equally the same.
What will happen? If the grip of the international left and the global neocons remains strong it may lead to more serious ethnic/civil disruptions, which could lead to ethnic/civil war. Then ethnostates would emerge as natural protection. But best would be to slowly and rationally develop ethnostates, that is, form an ethnopluralism of ethnostates legally and nonviolently from out of our constitutional separation of powers and states.
In any case, human nature predicts that ethnostates are coming.

If real mercy is the "privilege of the most powerful men," as Nietzsche declared (didn't Aristotle think that too?) then those who cannot get over the wrongs of World War Two and seek only revenge must be put outside that category of powerful men. But resentment and revenge also keeps the wrong alive as the will to power of the wronged, even if is an ignoble will to power.
We need to move toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Distinctly different people naturally compete and need their own space. Differentiated ethnic groups in general do not get along well jammed together in multi-cultural-multi-ethnic states.
To resolve this unending problem we do not need the imperialism or supremacy of noble Aryans or Chosen Jews, we need an ethnopluralism of ethnostates in line with kin and ethnic-centered human nature.
Those who block even the discussion of ethnostates are causing great suffering in the world, and for themselves too.

It took the whole history of humanity to discover the counter-intuitive idea that we could stop polio, measles, etc, by infecting people with a strain of the virus that taught the immune system how to fight the disease.
A similar counter-intuitive, or counter-popular-culture idea was discovered for stopping or at least better controlling human social and ethnic disruptions and that was the knowledge that we could fight racism best by admitting that human nature is and always has been racist, or genetically kin and ethnic centered, so we could therefore affirm ethnocentrism rather than fight it. This also brought forward the idea of affirming ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all groups as the most natural solution to racism. A wise man said, that which has been tearing us apart could put us back together again.
That idea has been blocked by leftists, but also by conservatives who have other views of human nature. Leftist think human beings are all the same and equal and therefore ethnocentrism is evil, and conservatives believe that human nature is fallen from universal love and therefore ethnocentrism is evil.
Ironically those who are most against racism and ethnocentrism are usually doing so for ethnocentric reasons; they use the charge of racism to block other groups and to advance their own group, consciously or unconsciously. So the ethnocentrism of human nature prevails in any case.
