What are the permanent things in reality?
Eliot and Kirk say the permanent things are “more than natural, more than private, more than human.” Really?
Conservatism cannot be purposefully built without naturalism. And we need not lose religion with naturalism if it is a religion built on the biological evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood.
Eliot and Kirk go on to say that “men will never be Gods.” Yes they will. No “tragic sense” of an irremediably fallen man is necessary or real. What is tragic is the Great Spiritual Blockade put up by non-materialism against the biological origin of social behavior.
Political philosophy traditionally stems from ethics and ethics from religion, but which religious philosophy? We do need to bond our societies with the sacred, but which sacred?
Real conservatism doesn't die with the affirmation of our material evolution to supermaterial Godhood, evolution naturally conserves the best of the past as we continue to seek the best in evolving toward ever-ascending levels of Godhood. True conservatism and permanence is built on that.
