Greetings, Comrade! Would you like a cheeseburger?
Amerika.org presents to you writings of a type of conservatism that you have not read before, but you surely have felt. We return to the core of conservatism which is conserving things like values, culture, heritage, folkways and environment.
Conservatives are fundamentally realists. Our ideas come from observing the structure of the cosmos and nature, realizing these are in unity with any metaphysical forces that exist, and from that designing a civilization. Conservatives design civilizations that are in unity with the underlying order of the universe.
In contrast, liberalism exhibits hubris. It places the desires of the human individual above reality. It ushers states into slow decline or — if taken to the extremes of the Soviet Union or Revolutionary France — rapid collapse in a fog of apocalyptic warfare.
The core of liberalism is solipsism, or thinking that the world is created by the individual perceiving it. Solipsists do not care about the consequences of their actions. They want something to be a certain way, so they declare that it is, and rally other people around them to claim the same.
Liberals adopt objects of pity — the poor, minorities, the unusual — and use those people as a justification for power being turned over to liberals. This is a marketing technique, just like other political and ideological promises. Liberals use justifications to demand power, but once they get power, you are forced to agree with them or be an enemy of the state.
Since WWII, liberalism has abandoned its hard-left orientation toward Communism and now demands a mixture of “cultural Marxism” with consumerism to fund it. This is an intelligent adaptation. Liberals seek to destroy all sources of cultural norms — including culture, values and heritage — in order to replace them with ideology. A population without culture relies on government, industry and media for its neo-culture.
When liberalism infests your society, the first casualty is logic. Rationalism is the process of translating real-world issues into abstractions, then “solving” those abstractions even though they incorporate at best a tenth of the actual factors that need considering. With rationalism, liberals replace logical thought with symbolic thinking.
For this reason, liberals must crush dissent. If any person wakes up and starts agitating for logical consistency with reality, this refutes liberal rationalism. They fear this and become censors and manipulators who band together and enforce “everyone agrees with this” style subjective ideas on the rest of us as “truth.”
Liberalism is not unique. It is part of a larger process called Crowdism which emerges whenever people embrace radical individualism. They fear social norms being enforced on them, so they destroy norms by banding together as a group and taking over society from within.
This is how all civilizations get forced into the final stage of their lifestyle, after which they collapse into third world failed states. If you look around the third world today, you will see remnants of once-great civilizations replaced by cultureless mixed-heritage people who act chaotically because they are all radical individualists. This is what liberalism leaves behind.
Our goal is to fight back against this process with essential conservatism, or preservation of realistic thinking. We believe in justice and in social order: “good to the good, and bad to the bad.” We know that homogeneity in culture, values, heritage and behavior makes the only civilizations which rise above the masses. We believe in the good, the beautiful and the true.
This will not make us as popular as Communism or a cheeseburger. And yet, it’s the only way to have a civilization that thrives. This means a high level of social order, a family-centric daily life, a strong culture and a small government as a result, an ethos of beauty and honesty (vir), and a desire to keep improving instead of looking backward and inward.
