The ancient Greeks tried to develop a total work of art, a universal artwork, an all-embracing art form that made use of all art forms. Wagner talked about doing the same with his Gesamtkunstwerk, or total art work.
Conservative's like to say they are against ideologies and political totalisms but traditional conservatism does include integrated assertions, theories, and aims that constitute a total sociopolitical program, it just doesn't include authoritarianism or despotism. The one separation conservatives have that keeps them from a truly integrated system is their religious separation between the material and the spiritual.
Theological materialism doesn't make the metaphysical error of separating the material and the spiritual and affirms a truly synthesized and integrated natural system that synthesizes the basic political and cultural separation, independence, and freedom of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates for all distinct ethnic groups, along with a religious philosophy to express the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood. And the sacred goal of evolving to ascending levels Godhood need not deprive us of either science or religion.
Even the smallest change in human nature and our DNA structure, for example, in our immune system, took hundreds of thousands of years (now we have genetic engineering which may be more rapid), but human nature across the world remains kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection, which usually mean ethnic selection, as the primary unit of selection. Rational and instinctive channeling of human drives, education, and human cultures in general need to move in this natural and integrated direction.

We can retain the traditional, conservative, classical, and biblical experience of the inward God, and most of the morality that comes with it, but a spirit didn't speak to religious founders from outside of the human material experience, it was the deepest part of human nature within the natural world that did the speaking, and it was not spiritual but was a peak material experience.
The Outward Path of material evolution to ongoing levels of supermaterial Godhood transforms but does not replace those first peak inward material experiences of Godhood. The Twofold Path contains both the inward and outward paths.
The moral laws come from nature, including the essential material activation within life (Tirips) to evolve to ascending levels of Godhood---which also defines the zenith of success in survival and reproduction---while adjusting to the ongoing unpredictable dynamics of natural outside evolution.
These essential conservative and evolutionary principles in theological materialism transform but do not reject the old inward path.

William Lind showed us how Political Correctness is Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. Cultural Marxist's (which modern liberals have virtually become) give materialism a bad name by misusing reason and science in being hostile to the natural order and real human nature in their value systems and in their views of good and evil, even though they claim to represent the soul of reason and science.
The evolutionary sciences have shown us that the natural order has evolved a human nature that is genetically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other conservative things, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection, followed by individual selection. That is almost the opposite of cultural Marxism and modern liberalism.
Humans and cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against real human nature with such experiments as Marxism and modern liberalism, 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.
And what political cultures better reflect real human nature? Cultures that affirm ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which takes us even deeper into the natural order and real human nature than traditional conservatism. So that strongly suggests the future direction of political cultures.

The conservatives, the natural preservers, are not yet addressing this real problem, or this solution (from 2015)
Individual, kin and group (or ethnic) selection could be called the primary-selection-trio. Libertarian conservatives are willing to make sacred the individual, and paleoconservatives or traditional conservatives are willing to make the kin sacred, but both say little or nothing about group or ethnic selection, and this is a serious omission directly relating to the future of America and the West.
According to the more courageous sociobiological and anthropological scientists and thinkers, group-selection is the central unit of selection. Only group or ethnic selection can be socially strong enough over the long term to actually protect and advance the individual and the kin.
The natural problems of competing groups within a multi-ethnic nation can be managed by affirming ethnopluralism, with regions and states primarily understood as ethnostates, which can then be protected internally and externally by a lighter version of federalism.
Establishing ethnopluralism within the United States is of course a daunting mission---charges of racism by the powers that be will destroy reputations---but the separation of powers and states in the U. S. Constitution could accommodate the natural political configuration of ethnostates, so even the conservatives could affirm it, if it was done gradually, and legally.
Ethnopluralism working in harmony with the primary-selection-trio works in harmony with real human nature, which remains very much individual, kin and ethnic-centered. Empires always fall back into ethnostates, so natural human history and evolution are on the side of ethnopluralism.
Otherwise America (and the West) seems headed for civil disturbances and even civil war between un-meltable ethnic cultures, which will weaken the nation internationally. The conservatives, the natural preservers, are not yet addressing this real problem, or this solution, and the modern liberals remain unrealistic about human nature and politics.
Politically incorrect ways of realistically solving the primary problems we face today and in the future
E.O. Wilson points out that perhaps of the three primary problems we are facing now, climate change, population growth, and species extinction, population growth is the biggest of them, and Wilson advocates, among other things, that women of the world have no more than 2.1 children per woman---any more than that dooms the planet. But progressive leaders never speak of the quality of the people being born: we know that when intelligence declines then civilization as we have known it declines. IQ correlates with many sociobiological factors, and these things have been determined objectively by science.
A few professors, such as Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen, have shown that global inequality can be explained by national IQ's, that is, differences in intelligence are based on small genetic differences between populations, which relates to global inequality. Lynn and Vanhanen propose such things as improving the quality of nutrition for pregnant women and infants, because IQ is also related to early nutrition. And then we have one or two people, like the late psychologist Raymond Cattell, who would initiate voluntary eugenic programs for improving the genetic qualities of people, poor and rich.
It takes courage to suggest these things because the political correctness of cultural Marxism which now rules the academic world and the big media virtually crucifies or ruins the career any person who mentions the diversity of intelligence or improving intelligence.
I would affirm the full development of genetic technologies, even selecting traits at the level of embryos, gene sequencing, etc, which could give a wider amount of selection power to couples. I believe we also need to continue the cultural and political affirmation of evolution toward higher intelligence, health, personalty, beauty and athleticism. This biological path toward higher intelligence, health, personalty, beauty, and athleticism, which we all want for our children, is much slower to evolve than machine intelligence but more conservative and much safer than machine intelligence. Machine intelligence can be an aid in human biological evolution but should never be the sole area of advancing evolution. Machine intelligence could one day dominate human life with amoral nonhuman values, if we don't carefully see that it does not.
And finally, human civilizations evolved mainly by way of the bonding ethics of group-selection or ethnic-selection and this remains deeply within human nature. Any future evolution will need to work with human nature in developing political philosophy, that is, not against human nature, such as developing, legally, an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. That is, a world of thousands of small states, or ethnostates, protected by a light federalism, and guided in material evolution toward Godhood by religion (theological materialism) and science. Then we may realistically have a better way, and more incentive, to solve the primary problems of climate change, population growth, and species extinction.

Conservatism rightly speaks of human scale culture, nurturing roots, centering on the common good more than commercial gain, and maintaining long established customs and habits, that is, not globalism, or universal cultural formats (see Russell Kirk). But conservative's rarely mention nurturing the roots of ethnic groups at the foundation of culture. Why not?
I think in our time it is lack of courage from fear of being called a “racist” for affirming ethnicity and all the social problems that can come from confronting the prevailing politically correctness of cultural Marxism.
Conservative's affirm natural law and human nature but overlook or downplay the basic parts of human nature that conflict with the politically correctness of cultural Marxism, such as, human nature being ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection---which usually means ethnic selection---as the primary unit of successful selection---although conservative's readily include human nature as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making and religious-making.
Since group-selection---which usually means ethnic selection---is the primary unit of successful selection, that is a serious omission within conservatism which has driven too many energetic natural conservatives away from conservatism and down radical paths that feature ethnicity and race but overlook or downplay other basic parts of conservative human nature, like maintaining long established customs and habits, and not radical formats.
My kind of conservatism sees that an ethnopluralism of ethnostates is the best political configuration for ethnic groups to live within, and needs to be included in conservatism. An ethnopluralism of ethnostates or regions could be established legally in the United States with our constitutional separation of powers and states, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by federalism.
It may require a few constitutional amendments to give more power to states and regions to move toward an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, and it will not be easy at all, but it is far preferable to radical Marxism or Fascism, or the political dissimulations we now have based on flawed definitions of human nature, which have brought us radically destructive civil disruptions, or even civil war, and which are now increasing across the world within unworkable multicultural (multi-ethnic) societies demanding that we all get along...We will all live more naturally, homogeneously, and as harmoniously as is possible in our own ethnostates.

Watching a series of bad commercials on television I wondered why they increasingly seem to be so untalented---while posing as being talented and clever which makes them worse. Books, films, politicians, and celebrities in general are increasingly showing the same lack of talent and cleverness and the same pose of being clever and talented.
Ads, films, etc. are of course mainly about making money for the products advertised, so they are dumbed down to appeal to the largest number of people---ingenuity or imagination is not their main concern. Greed has much to do with the lowering of quality and can come with some deeper baggage, like nepotism and bias.
But this lack of talent and cleverness also has much to do with the fact that dominance not talent usually rules in business, politics, and culture. If an organization is dedicated to real talent and merit and is also dominant then we can see more ingenuity or imagination, but that combination of dominance, ingenuity, and imagination is not common.
It sounds too cynical but if you are a rising business person, politician, writer, etc. you should know that talent or merit alone won't bring you success in the world, talent needs to be attached to dominance to be heard.

I have no doubt that the profit motive and free enterprise have led to many great things in the world, but I also have no doubt that the profit motive, or the intense and selfish desire to create wealth, as affirmed by libertarian economists like Milton Friedman, should not be the highest or only value of free enterprise and business.
The material evolution to ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood should be the highest value of our culture and civilization. This doesn't necessarily suggest theocracy, but the profit motive and the free enterprise system should be grounded in the highest value of the material evolution of life.
We are obviously a long way from this value system, but populism and economic nationalism are at least reluctantly beginning to wake business people up to the idea that the profit motive is not the highest value to live by. Globalism has done more damage than good in the world. The sacralization of evolution, not wealth, may come in the future.

Russell Kirk said that “without aristocracies of some sort, a country is in danger of intellectual sterility.” Not said is that meritocracies tend to lead to aristocracies. Also not said is that the will to power of the biological origin of our social behavior is a stronger force than either aristocracies or meritocracies, which is why aristocracies and meritocracies are always threatened.
People and ethnic groups evolved in widely different environments and developed different traits and talents which are obvious, even though it has become politically incorrect to say it. So the aristocracies or meritocracies that ethnic groups develop are different from the aristocracies or meritocracies that other ethnic groups develop because different groups have different traits and talents.
People tend to not much care if aristocracies or meritocracies become sterile or not because every cell in their body seeks survival and reproductive success first, even if people are unconscious of this primary motivation.
This becomes a problem in multicultural multi-ethnic societies where the will to power of the biological origin of our social behavior is a stronger force than either aristocracies or meritocracies, with group-selection or ethnic-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. So aristocracies and meritocracies in multicultural multi-ethnic societies tend to become sterile, or at least change, or even fall, do to various ethnic groups constantly competing for power.
If we want our countries and our people not to be in danger of sterility, intellectually or any other way, with power vested in people believed to be the best qualified, even in democracies, we will see the value in the natural political structure of ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, which relate directly to kin and ethnic-centered human nature and the always prevailing biological origin of our social behavior. Multicultural multi-ethnic societies eventually lead to civic disruptions and even civil war, where aristocracies or meritocracies are suspended.

Attaining real Godhood requires the affirmation of material life and evolution not the rejection of material life and evolution
Josef Pieper defined true “leisure” as orientating ourselves to the whole of existence, and to be orientated not in material things but from material things, and that is the general position of all serious asceticism, but it is gravely mistaken.
Ascetics all agree that being “truly human” means being free from the material world, which is like saying being truly human is not being human or being dead. Why this loathing of the material and the human? Asceticism is directed toward blocking all material desires to experience the exclusive bliss that comes from this very difficult and sacrificial experience, which is interpreted as experiencing God or the Father.
We cannot be free from material things unless we are virtually dead, which is indeed what all serious ascetics advocate. For example, “...whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” Luke 9:23-24. The Vedas, the Bible,
the Tripitaka, all declare this goal of asceticism.
the Tripitaka, all declare this goal of asceticism.
But Nietzsche was wrong to say that therefore God is dead---although he meant that religions which advocate blocking all material desires are dead. Real Godhood cannot be reached by blocking all material desires because real ascending levels of Godhood are reached only by way of positive material evolution.
So religion need not die from science, science need not die from religion, and humans need not die to the material world to experience Godhood. Theological materialism not theological spiritualism is called for. Attaining real Godhood requires the affirmation of material life and evolution.

The obvious problem no one wants to discuss, the Democratic 800-pound gorilla in the Republican living room, is the will to power of ethnic groups and races, which is being demagogically exploited by the democrats who promote only nonwhites. And wide open borders and offering free everything to everyone brings more nonwhite votes for democrats, no-matter what damage it causes to the citizens of the nation. The 800-pound gorilla is at bottom the denial---by both Democrats and Republicans for different confused reasons---of the biological origin of social behavior, which includes political behavior.
Republicans and conservative's don't want to face the reality of there being a real will to power of ethnic groups or races, since they insist that we are all the same under God, so they condemn the democratic party for promoting racism. And to make things even more convoluted the democratic party claims to be fighting evil racism while using racism to fight racism.
The way out of this confused and dangerous mess will inevitably be brought about by real human nature, which remains as it has always been: genetically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection. Rational and instinctive channeling of human nature and human drives, and education in general, needs to move in this direction.
A growing number of people believe that real human nature will lead to ethnostates and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates as the best political configuration for human beings 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. Whatever peace and harmony possible between distinctly different people will come from these natural separations, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by some sort of federalism.

In the West big government and big business (often the same thing) make people and ethnic groups conform to them rather than people and ethnic groups making big government and big business conform to them. And so globalism has been increasingly establishing the sameness of globalism and in the process have been destroying the particular traits of people, ethnic groups, and nations. Few benefit from this destruction other than the few promoters and controllers of globalism.
The only thing that has a chance of saving us from this conformity, this sameness, this living death of who and what we are, is the biological origin of our social behavior. As someone said, “Biology is the hardware, culture is the software.” We are governed and activated from within to live and successfully survive and reproduce in every cell of the body, reacting and adapting to the various environments we live in. This natural activation can be blocked, subverted, or it can be unknown to us, but it can't legitimately be intellectually or instinctively denied by big government, big business, or by anyone or anything else. In the end existing cultural values come from consciously or unconsciously trying to biologically and genetically advance ourselves and our kin, our related ethnic group, our locality, and our nation.
So during this time of the dying of particular people, ethnic groups, and nations at the hands of globalism---which is actually evil---there can be real hope that the virus of globalism will not kill us all in the end. Reality suggests that the biological origin of our social behavior and real human nature will once again naturally lead to the cultural expression of localism, regionalism, ethnostates, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by some sort of federalism---that is hope based on real human nature, which can't be blocked forever.

German Catholic philosopher Josef Pieper's book on leisure and its religious connections examines in a very accessible way both epistemology, the theory of knowledge, and the connections between leisure and religious insight. Or we might say he examines the way we find truth through the empirical methods of science verifiable by observation, experience and reason, compared to leisurely free thinking or intuition, which Pieper seems to prefer.
I think leisurely free thinking or intuition is like a very rapid way of summing up whatever empirical methods of observation, experience, and reason we have absorbed (or not absorbed ) in our life, so rapidly that we don't see the mind or method involved----they are sort of the same thing.
Artists and ascetics tend to lead with leisurely free thinking or intuition and scientists tend to lead with observation, experience and reasoning, but the best artists and scientists probably use both methods.
Being a religious philosopher Pieper compares leisurely free thinking or intuition to religious celebration and festival. I see this as the tone of the projected Mass of Celebration in the Outward Path of the projected Theoevolutionary Church; not in contrast to the Sacrificial Mass of the Inward Path of traditional religion, but rather as transforming the symbolic inward experience of God (thought of as spiritual but really a peak material experience) to the Outward Path of material evolution to supermaterial Godhood.
The sacred, or Godhood, is seen as supermaterial and reached through material evolution. The hero is featured in the material Outward Path to ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood rather than the early sacrificial martyr saint of the Inward Path, which is still valid but transformed. Science can join religion without the standard antagonism. It is an outsider-even-to-outsiders religious view, but in any case a religious celebration and festival of life, not death, is called for in the projected Theoevolutionary Church: a Mass of Celebration.

As William Lind pointed out, in 1933 the Nazis came to power and shut down the Marxist Institute for Social Research and its members fled to New York City where they reestablished the Frankfurt School at Columbia University. Later, Herbert Marcuse saw the 60s student rebellion as the great opportunity to take the work of the Frankfurt School and make it the theory of the New Left in the United States.
So the biological origin of human social behavior led to the will to power of the members of the Frankfurt School, who developed the cultural Marxism of political correctness and the lethal socialist neoliberal philosophy, which led to the moronic and degenerate Kennedy's, the smug and suicidal Clinton's, and the 1965 Immigration Act, which led to the destruction of the Northern European demographics of traditional America and allowed the rise to power of blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, feminist women, the global elite, the media, and the academics, who in turn call for the subordination of all nations and ethnic groups to globalism, which really means subordination to the leaders of globalism.
Real human nature remains 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 this leads naturally to the cultural expression of regionalism, localism, and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. Given who we are this appears to be the best way we can recover from our demographic disaster. Otherwise we may fade away.

Peter Thiel suggested that the reason big tech companies like Google are now working with China in artificial intelligence, which China promptly applies toward their dream of military dominance of the world, may be because big tech companies like Google, Facebook and Apple are full of people with the Asperger syndrome developmental disorder, which Wikipedia describes as “a spectrum of psychological conditions that are characterized by abnormalities of social interaction and communication that pervade the individual's functioning, and by restricted and repetitive interests and behavior,” which lend themselves well to computer engineering etc. but not so well to political diplomacy.
In some cases the nerds did manage to grab on to anarchic libertarianism and even cultural Marxism in our corrupted colleges and universities which they use to justify their obsessions, and which is about as political as they can manage to be. And no doubt there is some revenge of the nerds going on here as pay back for being dweebs and freaks in high school---becoming billionaires does bring a few of the cheerleader types around, at last, as well as big smiles from greedy businessmen who were probably once captains of the high school football team.
These big tech nerds aren't benign dweebs, as we see from their China alliances, they need attending and oversight and not free reign, no-matter how much they object to restricting their politically inept repetitive interests and behavioral obsessions.

Not being what we are, not being one with oneself, not being in accord with ones being, is mainly caused from being taught what we are not, usually in three ways.
We are taught that financial success in the world is all, or we are taught that survival and reproductive success is all, or we are taught that the spiritual is superior to the material and we should therefore most importantly look to the non-material spiritual, with the advocates of those positions claiming that those positions are in the best accord with what we are. Various cultures have developed around those versions of not being what we are, of not being one with oneself, or not being in accord with ones being.
Success in the world financially is driven by the desire for survival and reproductive success, but the desire for survival and reproductive success is driven by the sacred activation to evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood. The non-material spiritual was only the first rudimentary glimpse of the ascending levels of Godhood evolved to in the material world.
Being what we are means being in accord with nature and with real human nature, which is 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 successful selection, followed by individual selection. Cultures are eventually pulled back by that 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.
But in the deepest sense of being what we are and being in accord with ones being is the activation to evolve in the material world to ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood. Cultures can then work within and adapt to the environments they find themselves living in and consciously develop from that definition of theological materialism.

Clyde Wilson writes about the war of independence and the establishment of 13 free and independent colonies in North America (Chronicles, April 2015). Wilson reminds us that each colony developed its own society. The debates over the ratification of the U.S. Constitution were often against the centralizing of power and keeping the independence of the states. The best men feared "consolidation." The United States was a plural---the United States are, not the United States is, was the universal usage, as in the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson was not an advocate of "one nation indivisible," he would not be called a nationalist, it was the principle of self-government that was important to Jefferson. The union could be changed, it was not eternal. Toward the end of his life Jefferson wrote that it would be better for Virginia to secede than to succumb to the centralization pushed by Northern interests.
The states united together did not forfeit their sovereignty, they were not reduced to one and the same people. The union was "a compact between separate communities." An alliance was created in 1776, not really a "nation." When Jefferson looked westward he saw American's creating a new self-governing commonwealth joined in such a way as they wished.
This precedence, this character, this tone and guiding belief in affirming non-centralized states (but with a lightly protective federalism, and in today's world with a protecting economic nationalism) could be applied to ethnopluralism, and could be done with conservative reform, not radical revolution. We have gradually learned more about real human nature over the years and we see that human nature remains biologically and often culturally kin-centered, ethnocentric, group-selecting, even xenophobic, which means that in our crowded multi-ethnic world we will need to find a way to accommodate ethnopluralism, to keep whatever peace and harmony is possible between humans.
Establishing, or reestablishing, virtual ethnostates in the United States, where distinct ethnic cultures can thrive and evolve as they wish will probably happen anyway as multicultural empires always break back down into ethnostates. It would be better to do this consciously, rationally, rather than by way of civil war, given human nature---and our Constitution, with its separation of powers and states, could accommodate a natural and moral ethnopluralism if we would choose to do so.
It is said that alchemy was and is a double-goal system: it connects the physical world with the spiritual one so that the two can evolve together simultaneously, but the problem is, there is no spiritual world, there is only the material and supermaterial world: we evolve to ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood in the material world. Alchemy influenced religion and the growth of science, but there is no real alchemy, at least not a legitimate one.
But for solid conservative reasons we can in the Twofold Path retain the traditional Inward Path as the first human ascetic glimpse of Godhood, mistakenly thought to be non-material or spiritual, which is now transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood.
A Mass needs to be created celebrating the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood in the Outward Path which can be added to the sacred Mass of ascetic sacrifice of the traditional Inward Path. The hero can supersede the saint.
A big reconstruction, I know, but humans can eventually handle it, especially since it adheres to reality and can save dying religion.

Professors and priests will one day be teachers and conveyors of the biological origin of social behavior
I think professors and priests in humanities departments should be, are meant to be, and one day will be, teachers and conveyors of the biological origin of social behavior, along with their academic discipline of studying human culture in general. This means that the evolutionary science of sociobiology needs to be part of the curriculum of the humanities as well as part of the training of future professors and priests. The deepest understanding of our ideas and the moral sanctions of history and civilizations come from this foundation. Without the evolutionary sciences the humanities are inadequate and incomplete.
That being said we can see how the postmodernism, cultural Marxism, and political correctness of present academia are fraudulent. They have illegitimately joined Nietzsche's will to power to Marxism and the underclass will to power of feminist women, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, etc., which is contrary not only to Nietzsche but to real human nature and the biological origin of social behavior, which remains genetically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
I believe that the truth really does always rise, even if it can be stalled for centuries. When and how professors and priests will one day be teachers and conveyors of the biological origin of social behavior I cannot say, but I know as long as we have the rising of the sun and the moon it is inevitable and inescapable. Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes against human nature with such experiments as cultural 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.

Can free inquiry into intellectual things be free of all working purpose or is even philosophy a function of the material biological origin of social behavior?
Religious philosophy first took the leap of thinking in terms of a non-material spiritual world, which then supposedly allowed philosophers to think and feel free of the bonds of the material world. But that was not what they were doing. High religious experiences are peak material, not spiritual, experiences.
For example, by ridding the body of material desires, as Christ, Buddha, and other ascetics advocated they experienced the feeling of bliss which they described as non-material and spiritual---they even called it “God” which in reality was a peak material experience.
I believe that the deepest religious experience is feeling, knowing, or experiencing the high activation (Tirips) within material life to live, survive, reproduce, and evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood. We cannot function beyond or without this sacred material activation, why would we want to? Does the false duality of the desire to transcend the living object stem from the desire to transcend death?
It's interesting that blocking or unattaching oneself from all material desires is a form of death, the body shuts down the senses until “active death" is attained, which is blissful---the state of sushumna “lights the fires of death.” We seek freedom from life when we seek freedom from the material world, and that is death.
We evolve in the material world to supermaterial Godhood and we have free will to do so but within determined paths, like a boulder rolling down a mountainside. Why has that been so hard to accept? Evolution moves 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, all the way to ascending levels of real Godhood.

How and why political correctness and cultural Marxism are not only bogus but are destroying Western people and Western civilization
If political correctness or cultural Marxism said only that history is determined by power, by which groups defined in terms of race, sex, etc. have power over other groups, they would be about right according to the science of sociobiology, and I might agree with them. But the cultural Marxists then go on to include the Marxist idea that only the underclasses without power should be supported because their bid for power fuels the will to power of history—which now means they support only feminist women, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. etc. The big problem with their political correctness/cultural Marxism is that it leaves biology and the biological origin of social behavior completely out of their worldview.
The biological origin of social behavior according to the evolutionary sciences, which includes human nature, shows that human nature is biologically and genetically kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection. That basic human nature means that we naturally support people, create cultures, and first seek power for kin, ethnic group etc. because we seek survival and reproductive success for our own and related gene pools, and therefore we do not naturally seek power for only feminist women, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. etc. which would end up being suicidal for the genetic survival of our own groups.
So the politics that comes from political correctness and cultural Marxism is not only bogus but is now destroying Western people and Western civilization and seeking to replace them with feminist women, blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. etc, or at least the Stalinist type leaders of those groups.

Seeking the origin of sacredness and the origin of deep religion in the activation of material evolution
I see the universe as having an endless number of worlds moving and always evolving, with “life” evolving in some worlds, and perhaps with a few worlds evolving material life to the highest supermaterial levels of life, called Godhood. And this evolution never ends, it moves inevitably in a pattern---even though as many have said 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, always evolving toward Godhood.
I see this great process of evolution as activated from within every atom and within every cell of living bodies, which then react and adapt to the various outside environments that life lives in. This activation is the same activation that leads to the desire to successfully survive and reproduce. And this activation is a material/supermaterial activation, not spiritual: I call this sacred activation Tirips.
The origin of sacredness and the origin of deep religion come from trying to understand this process of numberless material worlds always evolving toward supermaterial Godhood, and from seeking to understand how life can become best synchronized with this sacred process of evolution, and help it along.

Who has a problem with stereotypes? Perhaps we should look to who benefits from trying to rid the world of stereotypes? Variety is good, evolution counts on variety, and stereotypes are often generally accurate based on indwelling bio-social traits useful in making quick decisions, which Burke called “prejudice----as long as we know that people and things can fall through the cracks; for example, genius can turn up literally anywhere in any stereotypical ethnic group.
Stereotyping says such things as: the Irish like both fun and sadness, the Scandinavians like stoicism, neither fun nor sadness, Germans are straight forward---in warrior societies little lies can get the whole group killed which probably relates to the old truth-talking warrior mentality, Southern Europeans prefer more indirect communication, Jews are stereotypically thought of as sharp money-grubbers, and East Asians are seen as even more stoic (inscrutable) than Scandinavians.
“Let's party!” contrasted with the Protestant work ethic are basically ethnic dispositions and not merely media propaganda. One of these stereotypical dispositions isn't “better” than the other, they are just different traits which developed and evolved in different places, eg. hot or cold environments.
But problems come when the “Don't worry be happy” social philosophy of pop culture tries to dominate in multicultural societies. For example, now every one from baby to grandma are unrestrainedly dancing in television commercials, which usually adds the little ideological bonus of making whites look ridiculous. Even country music now has its twangy version of rap. And Taylor Swift parties like Beyonce.
Northern Europeans tend to be more introverted than southern Europeans and Africans who are more extroverted, and both naturally feel uncomfortable with each others disposition. Most of the social, cultural and political problems we have---which are now causing increasing violence in our streets---come from the different dispositions and traits of different ethnic groups trying to live multiculturally within the same space, usually with barbarian music playing above it all.
This leads to one of the main themes of this blog: Cultures work most harmoniously when they reflect the people who create the culture. Ethnic characteristics help make cultures and ideologies, which is why I advocate ethnopluralism, even within the United States, with the constitutional separation powers and states designed for ethnic cultures.
Then we can work, or party, which ever turns us on, in our own space, protected from marauding imperialists and supremacists by federalism.

Not merely the age or income of people but their ethnicity or race will determine the direction of future politics
Demographics, the statistical characteristics of human populations, will determine the direction of future politics, but it is of course not politically correct to say that not merely the age or income of people but their ethnicity or race will determine the direction of future politics. As the ethnicity or race changes the culture and civilization changes.
It was mainly whites who barely elected Donald Trump, in spite of the overwhelming anti-Trump power of billionaires like George Soros, Pierre Omidyer, the Media, the schools, and all the anti-Trump groups and alliances strongly against Trump---even our intelligence services tried to destroy Trump.
These anti-Western culture alliances have for some time been destroying all the traditional elements of white Western order, including the ethics and morals of religion, art and education. Demographically they have been successful, whites are now dying faster than being born---in tearing down traditional religion, art, and education they took away the cultural reasons and incentives for having children and a normal natural life.
But even the conservatives will not say that ethnicity or race will determine the direction of future politics, mainly due to fear of the overwhelming anti-Trump powers, although much of this tragedy also has to do with ignorance of the fact that real human nature is primarily and genetically kin and ethnic centered, which had been blocked or distorted by these billionaires, the Media, and the schools.
The thing to do now is to teach the real truth that as the ethnicity or race changes the culture and civilization changes, and that destroying ethnicity or race is not good. We will need new billionaires, the Media, and the schools on our side. Then healthy cultures (like ethnostates) may follow.

I would say I am an evolutionary realist in art and literature, an ethnostatist in politics, and a theological materialist in religion. I would place these under the term evolutionary conservatism. That is what my writing tries to synthesize every day.
I see evolution as explained by sociobiologist E. O. Wilson and social psychologist Raymond Cattell as the main path of progress. I see future politics leading to the ethnostatism as first examined by maverick historian Wilmot Robertson. I affirm conservatism as explained by Russell Kirk and Pat Buchanan. I see art as examined by the writer Tom Wolfe, and literature as examined by T. S. Eliot. And I affirm my own religious philosophy of theological materialism.
But of course I don't agree with everything these writers said. Wilson couldn't emphasize clearly that the base of group selection and altruism is ethnic selection. Cattell didn't try to conserve traditional religion within his courageous new religion from science. Robertson was brilliant and historically wise but spent too much time fulminating against the Jews. Russell Kirk's writings were straight talking but also oddly pretentious, and both he and Pat Buchanan ultimately affirmed the non-materialism and asceticism of traditional religion which blocks the material evolution to real Godhood.
So for now at least my evolutionary conservatism has placed me in no man's land, beyond these different regimes of thought and action, just outside the city walls, where I try to accept my fate.

A deep devaluation of human beings and human nature exists in the way traditional religion's tell us that the higher we go the more we become like the angels who are said to be non-material, spiritual, purely intellectual beings, without the gross material human nature.
Why does traditional religion think that higher beings must be non-material, spiritual, purely intellectual beings? Nietzsche probably came the closest to answering this question in saying that the priests and ascetics of traditional religion gained power and control by disparaging materialism and blocking the will to power of their followers, even if some of them were unaware that they were doing it.
This degrading of human beings and human nature was especially misleading and damaging because it set up a great spiritual blockade against the real path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood.
While the ethical bonding and social order of traditional religion are important, the control method they use of degrading human beings and human nature, and even making it sacred to block the real path of material evolution to real supermaterial Godhood, was and is fatally and metaphysically wrong.
Theological materialism seeks to set this right so we can get on the sacred religious path of material evolution to real Godhood.

Transforming the ascetic inward experience of God in the Outward Path of material evolution to real Godhood
Conservatives and traditionalists rightly believe that religion should create the foundation of long-term culture, but which religion? A religion that does not ignore the biological origin of social behavior and the biological origin of religion and culture.
Traditional religions declare that a non-material non-biological spiritual God is at the origin of religion and culture. But the material activation of life in every cell of the material body (here called Tirips) activates life leading to the origin and creation of religion and culture.
Ascending levels of Godhood are reached through material evolution, not the other way around. Supermaterial Godhood is the goal of evolving life, not the origin of life, unless you want to call the material activation of life God.
Being aware of the importance of conservative order to life and culture and to maintaining the best of the past, the Twofold Path of theological materialism retains in the Inward Path that first traditional human glimpse of God as the ascetic, material, symbolic, experience of bliss, which ascetics called God, arrived at by ridding their bodies of biological desires. That ascetic inward experience is then transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution leading to ascending levels of real material/supermaterial Godhood.
Not even a leap of faith is necessary to believe in the Godhood reached by way of material evolution, but a little faith may be needed---and much work---in believing we can and will attain real Godhood. And fading religion itself needs transforming if we are to have religion in the future---religion and science can be merged.

These mass shootings are doing so much damage to the causes espoused in the manifestos of these psychotic murderous monsters that it almost makes one think that these mass shooters are like Manchurian candidates who have been brainwashed to take violent action after receiving some phrase or code word from their handlers.
The leftist/globalist's who want to totally control the internet, confiscate all the guns, and destroy fledgling populist nationalism---backed up by the entire Media, the schools, and by globalists in general---are exploiting these monstrous psychotic acts to gain big ground in closing down the nationalist right, or making the right illegal...They could succeed, at least in the short term.
Even in advanced modern societies where survival is easier, the dangers of the things that these leftist/globalist's promote, such as: cultural Marxism (demanding biologically equality for the naturally unequal), radical feminism (demanding biologically unnatural roles for women), homosexuality (demanding biologically unnatural sexual life styles), postmodern relativism (demanding a biologically unnatural relativity of values), and demanding biologically unnatural open borders, eventually lead to biologically and culturally diseased societies. It has happened time and again throughout human history, decayed multicultural empires always fall, and some form of ethnostates always rise again from the ashes.
Here is the problem we have: human nature is biologically and genetically ethnocentric and has been since humans became humans: group-selection was the only way for individuals to successfully survive, so altruism, or being for others, was naturally and genetically limited or designed mainly for kin and ethnic group because they shared the same genes and that allowed for homogeneous cultures to strive for survival success. Trying to rid human nature and human culture of these deep-seated biological preferences is like trying to rid human beings of being human. That is cruel. Is it not time for humanity to understand and become what we really are?
Cultures can operate for a time with behavior that goes directly against biological human nature, such as the depraved cultures mentioned above, but cultures are eventually pulled back, and not always peacefully, by the biological and genetic leash of real human nature to cultures that better reflect real human nature.

Rational, educated, thinking is vitally important but in dealing with a philosophical problem, first simply looking in yourself, to the oracle within oneself as Josef Pieper called it, is more important, we can then follow up with using the analytical brain to evaluate what we have simply seen.
I think the best way to deal with a philosophical problem is not, at first, to even think of philosophy or of the history of philosophy, but to simply look in yourself, to that oracle within oneself, and let the problem flow where it wants to go. It will soon enough go to the reasoning part of the brain.
I think what we want is more of a balance between what the old philosopher's called ratio and intellectus, that is, a balance between abstracting and simply looking, or as moderns have called it, using both the left and right brain, which seems like a a duality of the mind but really isn't.
To first simply look in yourself, to the oracle within oneself, is not as easy as it sounds to educated moderns, we have all kinds of things we have learned in our cultures and in our schools where many of us, sadly, become intimated against thinking for ourselves by expert thinkers loaded with the history of rational thought.
The right and left brain brain don’t work independently of each other, but one side appears to be dominate in different people, and that's the way to think of the difference between abstracting and simply looking. I think simply looking at the philosophical problem creatively should be dominate over being analytical, even though they don’t work independently of each other.
But there is another thing that is just as important, or perhaps more important, in dealing with a philosophical problem which involves the courage of the thinker, which seems to involve the character of the thinker more than whether one is analytical or creative. Where does courage come from? First ask the oracle within oneself, then follow up by analytically evaluating the history of thinking regarding courage.

"Dare to ask terrifying questions, and you may be answered." Russell Kirk
Some truths are constant and fundamental, or primary, and some truths are secondary usually as a result of new and better knowledge coming in from all fields. But without the Twofold Path of theological materialism and without the evolution to supermaterial Godhood we have an incomplete connection to reality.
The primary goal of religion can be attained only through the Evolutionary Outward Path of material evolution to Godhood. The secondary goal of religion is experiencing the traditional symbolic Spirit Within (which is really the material activation of Tirips) obtained through the Involutionary Inward Path of ascetics.
The Twofold Path in the theological materialism of the projected Theoevolutionary Church conservatively retains the old Inward Path of traditional religion as it is transformed in the Outward Path of material evolution to real Godhood.
Secondary conservatism defends fundamental “universal” ethics such as those which help all groups survive, as well as defending “personal” individual ethics which help the individual survive. Primary conservatism affirms specific group ethics, which can help specific groups and ethnic groups survive and evolve. The group is and has been genetically the main unit of evolutionary selection.
We do not have to ignore variety while upholding universal ethics. The principles of subsidiarity and federalism, and the political configuration of an ethnopluralism of ethnostates follow this kind of social philosophy, which unifies universal, specific and personal ethics.
Evolution to Godhood is the primary intent and pattern of ethics. Survival is the natural and secondary test of ethics. We may not reach Godhood unless we learn how to evolve through a secure scientific understanding of our genetic and cultural environments, which is the new scientific social wisdom.
Evolutionary scientists like Raymond Cattell and E. O. Wilson, philosophers like Nietzsche, and maverick historians like Wilmot Robertson mapped out or at least pointed toward many of these insights, but without the Twofold Path of theological materialism.

Conservative's like Pat Buchanan and the great Russell Kirk, followed the lead of the great Edmund Burke and T.S Eliot in basing their conservatism in the dying spiritualism of traditional religion, so they ended up being Jeremiahs and predictors of doom.
They had it right in believing that no civilization has risen or lasted long without being grounded in religion, but the spiritualism of religion has been the main reason religion has been gradually falling.
Progressives on the left in politics have sensed the weakness of spiritualism and have presented themselves as new, fresh, creative, and on the side of science, although they overlook the science of sociobiology which rejects the lie of their universalist, globalist, we-are-all-the-same-and-equal view of human nature.
So the creative and modern styling of the left and their rebellion against conservatism and against the conservative Jeremiahs and predictors of doom has appealed to the young---and dominating the Media and the schools hasn't hurt them either.
The evolutionary conservatism of the philosophy of theological materialism dances to a different tune of conservatism, taking the future in hand, which includes bringing the evolutionary sciences within religion and within conservatism.
We evolve in the material world to ever ascending levels of Godhood with the aid of the futuristic sciences, genetics included, and we will need all the elements of conservatism to retain the best of the past as we evolve the new, by applying an ordered conservatism. Evolution moves inevitably in a pattern, even though it has its random elements, in a discernible direction, in spite of instances of stagnation and retreat, toward higher and higher more effective living forms, on the path toward Godhood.
So religion remains, but an evolutionary religion: the price for retaining a vital religion and futuristic conservatism is replacing spiritualism with the material evolution of life to supermaterial Godhood.

Two great minds, German Catholic philosopher Josef Pieper (1904 –1997), and living Sociobiologist E. O. Wilson were brilliant in elucidating their deepest means but middling in perceiving their deepest ends. Pieper's means of “be still and know” and Wilson's systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world, miss the deepest end of life as described by theological materialism.
The end of the deepest means of traditional religion is to reach heaven, but it is a so-called non-material heaven reached by ascetic's ridding the body of all desires to experience the bliss of an inward Godhood. The end of science is to reach the zenith of material knowledge of reality, which is an abstraction in the mind perhaps not unlike the experience of the bliss of an inward Godhood.
The problem is, their is no non-materialism, there is only materialism and super-materialism, and supermaterial Godhood is evolved to in the material and supermaterial world. So the deepest ends of Pieper and Wilson are misleading.
Both the cultures of religion and science need as the end to their means the ever ascending levels of supermaterial Godhood evolved to in the material and supermaterial world.
