Nature, Nationalism, and Naïveté

by David Yeagley · March 6, 2013 · 20 Comments ·

Whether evolutionist, or Biblical creationist, scholar or mystic, scientist or psychologist, all must agree that nationhood is apparently a natural condition of corporate humanity. Perhaps it is the ultimate extension of the natural family orientation; a nation is a sophisticated tribe. However, an empire is a different thing. The impetus for one group of people to rule over another is not found to have natural precedent.

When I taught humanities courses at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City campus, one course I taught repeatedly was Ancient Humanities. This involved the observation of civilization from Mesopatamian Sumer and North African Egypt (ca. 3,000 B.C.) to Medieval Europe (ca. 1200 A.D.). Particularly in the first semester course, “Ancient Humanities,” one could see clearly the issues of nationhood with respect to conflict. I was most impressive to discuss why, for example, the Akkadian people attacked and conquered the Sumerians (ca. 2,350 B.C.). What are the reasons for such aggression? The Akkadian people are identified as Semitic (“Semitic barbarians” according to Robert C. Lamm), but no one knows the origin of the Sumerians (who themselves overran the original inhabitants of the Sumer river valley). Sabatino Moscati regards the Sumerians not as Semitic, although they used the Semitic language, even in their cuneiform. See, Ancient Semitic Civilizations (1960), p. 46.


Max Wertheimer (1880-1943), founding
figure in modern Gestalt Psychology.

At OSU-OKC, I also created a course called The Psychology of Race (in the Fall of 1997). Here I made it clear that, whether ancient mythology or presumed science of evolution, the existence of corporate divisions of humanity not only exist, but exist in conflict, one with another. Humanity is divided by first by language, then geographics, environment, and diet. “Culture” derives from these unaccountable divisions. I was always sure to point out that the Hebrew myth of origins alone identifies causal elements in these divisions. Furthermore, the Hebrew God alone address the even the subject. All the other gods pertain only to the people whom they are said to have created. These lesser gods are all ethnocentric. They function, internationally, like so many football team mascots, badges, or club insignias. But, these various gods are theoretically unconscious of the existence of other teams. Only the Hebrew God claims not only to have made them all, but to be responsible for them all.

Evolution may describe some mute force driving species to new environments, but evolution fails when addressing the inverse–when species attempt to dominate or annihilate another species, as in the case of man.

On the more subjective side, Gestalt psychology of perception (a German pastime of an earlier age) observes that the human creature responds to multiplicity of stimulus by grouping the data into similar associations. “Closure” it is called. It is a natural, neurological reaction to stimulus. When faced with a variety of objects or subjects, the mind (or eye) automatically sorts out the material, and divides it into groups of similar things.

It is precisely this Gestalt psychology element which may offer a clue into human social relations. I apply this to sociology and race relations, but, have not conducted any scientific experiments myself, nor thoroughly researched any such application. But, obviously, to see a variety of peoples at large, one naturally groups them. Indeed, people group themselves, for natural reasons. But the secret, unspoken instinct or impetus involved in this basic response to stimulus is discretion. We not only group, but we evaluate. Inevitably, we seek the superior our of any quantity of stimuli. This may all be related to survival instincts, but, it must be noted in any discussion of nationhood and the relations between peoples.

So, like it or not, we ask the question, Which is the superior people? What people contain the highest values, the greatest talents, and how in the world are these things measured? Is it connected to survival, or longevity? If we want the best, if even to survive the longest, how do we know what the best is? What is our ultimate criterion?

This essay has posed many questions, which cannot be answered all at once. Suffice it to say now that the desire for life is inherent, biologically, in all life forms. It does not require thought to provoke. What does require thought, at least in mankind, is how to procure the best and longest life. This is true no matter what the criteria actually are. Biological instincts dictate the desire for life. Longevity is therefore a kind of instinctive manipulation on our circumstances.

From these impeti derive the history of nations. We shall continue.

    I have no quibble with what you write here.

    Just a note though on your “the issues of nationhood with respect to conflict.”

    I listened to Rabbi Ari Kahn’s Lecture on “Messianism”. You linked to him previously. In order to have the “Jewish Messiah”, you must have the Messianic Age. In order to have the Messianic Age, requires two things World Peace and the Restoration of the Unity of Man. This “Restoration of the Unity of Man” began in the modern pseudo-republican movement with “A republic is any government without a king”. Regicide is the first step in deracination. This restoration of the Unity of Man is in both FreeMasonry and in International Socialism. In the book Elements of Socialism (1925) there is a section that Socialism seeks to bring about “World Peace”.

    The doing away of nations and races accomplishes two things—the Unity of Man and World Peace. In order to have “World Peace” races and nations have to be destroyed. This is the Jewish Agenda. Always has been. Your rabbi friend points that out in his talk. Every Jews must work, Tikkun Olam, in “restoring” this mythical Unity of Man.
    —-
    Why this is wrong.

    Adam grew up in World Peace. Adam lost his relationship with God.

    In this state of Nature, In this State of War, People are Saved. It is the Wisdom of God, this state of War that is necessary for Man to achieve Salvation.

    The Jews don’t understand reality at all. Conflict, Life is War, is a necessity and is a Law of Nature.

    To want “World Peace” is a heresy.

  • 2 WHEELER // Mar 6, 2013 at 5:17 pm   

    As individuals fall under the influence of evil, so do nations. Nations exist as a check and balance on others.

    One must not, can not, engage in Judeo-Masonic-Bolshevism and in its goals of the restoration of the Unity of Man and World Peace.

    For the sake of salvation, In times of war, men seek God. Peace ennervates man. Lack of war effeminizes. And as St. Paul said, “The Effeminate do not enter the kingdom of God”.

    War is a necessity. The Law of Nature is Life is War. It shall never go away.

    From an article from the Parisian Jewish review, La Verite Israelite, in 1861, found in the book Freemasonry and the Vatican, by Leon Poncins:

    “But the spirit of Freemasonry is that of Judaism in its most fundamental beliefs; its ideas are Judaic, its language is Judaic, its very organization, almost, is Judaic.” …”That Temple which must be built…the divine asylum wherein all men who have been reconciled, will re-unite one day in holy and fraternal Agapes: it is the social order which shall no longerknow fratricidal wars, nor castes, nor pariahs, and where the human race will recognise and proclaim anew its orginal oneness”. (pg 75-76)

    Leon Poncins at the end of the above quotation makes it very clear: “The oneness of the human race, the goal towards which Judaism and Freemasonry work hand-in-hand”.

    On YouTube, you can access the BBC documentary on Freemasonry. The last three minutes of it they state the real goal and idea of Freemasonry: “To transcend Race and Religion”.

    Communism, democratic socialism, and Fabian Socialism, which Churchill was a member, were all about, and communism was once known as “International Socialism”. Communism is Jewish Ideology. Karl Marx ended his manifesto with the phrase “All the workers of the world unite”. Political Correctness is Cultural Marxism. It is about ending race and nation by attacking “racism” everywhere!

    The Jewish agenda, both in religion and their two instigated institutions, Freemasonry and International Socialism is about COMMITTING EXISTENTIAL GENOCIDE.

    I find it maddening that Adorno and Horkheimer, both Jews, both thorough Marxists, blame Western culture for the Holocaust.

    Who planned what Genocide first? The Jews.

    Who genocided the Russian Royal Family?

    The firing squad and its leader were all Jews.

    What is God doing in Heaven seeing the Jews killing not only a Christian Monarch but genocided the whole Russian Royal Family?

    What goes around comes around. I have absolutely no benevolence towards the Jews. They are constant liars and hypocrites. They sit there in the smug faces saying one thing out of their mouth–while on the other side they do the exact same thing.

    Do you take me as a fool, that Theodore Adorno and Max Horkheimer, of the Frankfurt School, don’t know their own religious teachings? That they are totally ignorant of Rosa Luxemborg, a German Jew and Karl Kautsky, an Austrian Jew, and their writings on “The Nationalities Question”, about destroying nations and races? That Jewish Ideology is about Genocide yet, blame the Holocaust on Western Europe and on the Germans when the Jews have always planned their genocide and that of other nations?

    How do you face a people who develop and plan and execute existential genocide and when God intervenes, they blame the Gentile for their woes?

    I have nothing but total disgust and abhorence of such people.

    God created Race and Nation. They are part of the Natural Order. The Jews are attacking God himself. It is up to them, they think, to “fix the world”.

    This is why Hitler drove the Jews from Germany and most Freemasons jailed and then executed—for their treason. All internationalists commit Treason. Most Jews commit Treason. Your Rabbi Ari Kahn by holding that teaching of restoring the Unity of Man, is committing Treason. The whole American Catholic Hierarchy, influenced by Political Correctness and by marxism, are committing Treason. Your Seventh Day Adventist Church with its promotion of World Peace and Multiculturalism, and a purveyor of Political Correctness is committing Treason.

    We live in an Age of Treason. The penalty for Treason is Death.

    From The Fifth International

    “**Marxists have no positive interest in creating or preserving the “national peculiarities” of peoples except inasmuch as they contribute to the common cultural and scientific treasury of a future classless and nation less humanity.**”

    “”The strategic goal of Marxists is not the proliferation and separation of nations but their merging and, indeed, their ultimate disappearance.”"

    “”Marxists are opposed to the slightest forcible or coercive assimilation into the national identity of a large oppressor nation. But we are also opposed to artificial attempts to hold up or reverse the spontaneous and voluntary assimilation process that is a feature of capitalism and will be even more marked under the proletarian dictatorship and transition to socialism.”"

    This is what Multiculturalism and Political Correctness is all about. PC is taught everywhere. Christians who believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, are helping the Jews construct “The Messianic Age”. Boy, a lot of people are deceived.

  • 5 David Yeagley // Mar 7, 2013 at 10:16 am   

    It is quite possible that I am not well-read enough, not sufficiently informed, so that I am not able to address the data you cite.

    However, I don’t see it as you see it. How is any Jewish ideology of human unity the equivalent of genocide? It may suggest some kind of “culturacide,” but this is not sinister like literally eliminating a people from the earth–which is the threat always imposed in the face of Jewish people.

    Yes, most people prefer their nationalities and ethnicities. This is why empires–of any kind, fail. But the extreme would be Libertarianism or individual, self-idolization–which itself could be stretched a bit into universalist communism as well.

    Interesting points, Mr. Wheeler, indeed.

    George Soros may be the kind of Jew you’re talking about. So what about Mark Levin? Or even David Horowitz? But, especially Mark Levin? One could hardly be more of an American constitutionalist that he.

    Is the American Constitution less than nationalist in your opinion? If it preaches equality and equal opportunity for all, isn’t that theoretically Communist?

  • 6 David Yeagley // Mar 7, 2013 at 10:42 am   

    Now, if anyone is willing to comment on the content of my article, we certainly welcome you!

    Sensitive topics often draw all kinds of off-target fire.

    We’re talking about the natural intuition of nationhood and equally natural notion of superiority. We’re not talking about modern politics, but rather the historically demonstrable impeti behind it.

  • 7 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 11:32 am   

    One of the strongest factors is the sense or concept personal identy.

    Aesthetics is yet another.

    Cultural longings and shared history is yet another.

    I cannot extactly tell you why, but when I witness strong racial differences brought together in intensely intimate relationships — especially dating and marriage — I feel queasy. I actually feel the same feeling as though I had unintentionally run through a red light and fear that a police car may flag me down and give me a ticket. I feel that I’m witnessing something illicit.

    We are told now that MRI testing shows that even babies have racial “impulses.” So it appears to be innate.

  • 8 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 11:41 am   

    Fifteen or more years ago a curious incident took place in front of my house. Blacks were then being introduced into my neighborhood in considerable numbers. (Remember that in 1978 there were at most ONE family of Blacks in the entire city — and it’s not a small city.)

    In front of my house were three or four White high school boys walking by. Across the street were two high school boys who were inseparable friends, one of whom was White, the other Black. The White boys in front of my house were offended by this friendship. They called out to the White boy with the Negro friend, “White boy with a Black boy!” This was a criticism, not a compliment. It meant, “What business have you being friends with a Black — a racial alien?”

    Racial feelings are real. I am not the only one to experience them. Somthing about survival is threatened when progressive and ever-increasing intermarriage is set in motion. And inter-racial friendship leads to dating the opposite sex in the last analysis — in the long run, if not in the short.

    This would probably not happen now, as there are very many Blacks in my city.

  • 9 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 11:48 am   

    That is to say, inter-racial friendships lead to intermarriage when the community is forcibly racially integrated. This has been discussed in an old book, “Race and Reason — a Yankee View” by Carleton Putnam.

    For an old-fashioned view of this topic, written well over 100 years ago, Google “The Negro Problem — Abraham Lincoln’s Solution” by William P. Pickett. This book reveals much about historical attitudes regarding race-relations between Whites and Blacks.

  • 10 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 11:55 am   

    There is definitely a family-feeling I have towards members of my own race. The fireman will rush into the burning building to save lives of strangers — not only because it’s his job, but because it’s his own people — his extended family — who lives are in peril.

    Remember that, genetics informs us that we have as many genes in common with a stranger of our own race as we do with our great-grandfather. In fact, genetic commonality rapidly diminishes in a single family line but not within the race itself.

    It’s very simple: sharing precise genes halves every generation in a family line, so that after some generations have passed, there is, in practical terms, no direct genetic traits left. But this is vertical. Horizontally, we continue to share common genes in great abundance with persons of our own race or ethnicity. Genetic similarity does not diminish in this horizontal direction.

    Parent – Child 50%
    Parent – Grandchild 25%
    Parent – Great-grandchild 12.5 %
    Etc.

  • 11 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 12:28 pm   

    The cultural conflict between Blacks and Whites is beyond belief. Just search You Tube for songs by “2 Live Crew,” for example. White children are, from the cradle, being flooded incessantly with this filth. The unbelievably wild and coarse nature of this “music” still sickens me. No one ought to be exposed to this. Yet little children in preschool are listening to it. I know that such noise actually could cause a mental breakdown for someone “classical” like me. Sorry folks, but the Negro has trashed the American culture. If I need to call “inferiority,” it would have to be this. It’s simply a crime.

    Now, for contrast, try “Father Christmas” from the 1970 Musical “Scrooge” for real White culture.

    These are just on possible pair of an unlimited number of such possibilities.

    This is Isaac, Benjamin (2004) The Invention of Racism in Classical Antiquity, Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ.

    SUBHEADING: “Race Does Not Exist, Racism does”

    ((First Line))
    “Since the concept of race as such is merely theoretical, since it is a quasi-biological construct invented to establish a hierarchy of human groups and to deliniate differences between them, and since it does not work in practice, atempts have been made from the beginning to incorporate other features which are not physiological. The designation “race” in the sense of subspecies cannot be applied by definition to language groups (the Ayran race), national groups (the Englich race), religious groups (the Christian or Jewish race), groups with one or more phyhsical features in common, such as skin color, or the entire species of humans (the human race): such usages are biologically and scientifically meaningless.

    From: Bernasconi, Robert, editor (2001) Race, Blackwell Readings in Continental Philosophy, Blackwell Publishers Ltd., Malden, MA.

    pg 1 “Nothing shows this better than the continuing concentration on Anthony Appiah’s questioning of the reality of race: “The truth is that there are no races: there is nothing in the world that can do all we ask ‘race’ to do for us”. …if sciences have no place for race, then that should be the end of the matter.”

    Across the field, the majority of Academics reject “race”. Race is a myth.

  • 13 WHEELER // Mar 7, 2013 at 12:57 pm   

    Dr. Yeagley asks: “How is any Jewish ideology of human unity the equivalent of genocide?”

    You don’t have to kill to commit genocide. I call it “existential genocide”. What happens is that people are deracinated.

    How does this happen? Thru political correctness when whoever says there are racial differences, discriminates, or claims racial superiority is attacked as “racist”. What happens is that you loose your job and are blacklisted.

    We are supposed to be colorblind. That race has NO values, no intrinsic validity. This is Nihilism. They are turning everybody into an individual making for “rootless individuals” that have NO meaning in their lives. Race gives meaning, gives connections, that one is part of a group, race is family. Destroy race existentially, and you create a disordered individual.

    Loyalty, the Virtue, disappears. Love disappears. The Jewish ideology of human unity is about deracinating everybody but themselves.

    In the OT, miscegenation is wrong. God commanded that the breeds of cattle shall not be mixed.

    See, no man is self sufficient. In reproduction, man needs a woman to complete reproduction. Only the family is self-sufficient in this regard. Second, the family itself is not self-sufficient. Because Nature is a State of War. The Devil rules in this world. The only protection, the self-sufficiency in defense, is the Tribe, Race, Nation. Without that, man is defenseless.

    Jews want all Gentiles to be “individuals” because they don’t want any Gentile race to threaten them.

    Racial prejudice exists to keep the solidarity of the race. Racial prejudice is the metaphysical boundaries of the race. It is there to keep cohesion. Racial prejudice is a mark of all herd animals and insect colonies. You see this between wolve packs and lion prides. Pick up and watch Meerkat Manor, about the group dynamics of meerkats.

    Racial prejudice exists there to KEEP NATIONS/RACES separate!!!!

    So it is a Law of Nature.

    What is happening is that of social re-engineering to attack any body that shows any racial tendencies and make them drop them and abhor them.

    The Jews are trying to reconstruct the Tower of Babel.

  • 14 WHEELER // Mar 7, 2013 at 1:05 pm   

    America is a Masonic Country. It is supposed to be raceless and religionless.

    The Seal of the US is Masonic. On the back is this phrase, “E pluribus Unum”. This is from Heraclitus. What this is the Masonic goal of bringing all the people together in One World. “Out of many, One”. America is the prototype of the New Order that is being implemented right now.

    As past Popes have condemned Freemasonry, America, a product of Masonry, needs to be condemned as well. The American Flag exhibits the Masonic symbol of the Star. I refuse now to say the pledge of Allegiance or even look at the flag. If you look at all the communist flags, there are stars. The commie flag over Berlin, has a star on it. The Star was on the cover of the North Vietnamese communist head gear. The Star exists on the Israeli Flag. The Star is the symbol of Judaism. The Star is the symbol of revolution. That is why it is called the “Star of Revolution”.

    One Pope did write an Encyclical condemning Americanism in the part about “separation of Church and State”. He didn’t go far enough. America is the seat of world revolution.

    I point to the story of the Tower of Babel. God increased the divide between men by changing their language. God called the unity of man an evil. For some unknown reason, the Jews don’t read this right. They think it is their duty to consitute the Unity of Man. That means doing away with racial prejudice, the idea of race, and the values inherent in race.

  • 15 WHEELER // Mar 7, 2013 at 1:15 pm   

    “Let us now examin more closely the picture of the Messianic age, when justice and brotherhood shall reign over the earth, …As for the final result of the messianic revolution, it will always be the same: God will overthrow the nations and the kings and will cause Israel and her king to triumph; the nations will be converted to Judaism and will obey the Law or else they will be destroyed and the Jews will be the masters of the world.

    “The Jews’ international dream is to unite the world with the Jewish law, …” (Poincins, Freemasonry and the Vatican, pgs 76-78)

    The person who wrote this was a Mr. Loeb.

    This “Jewish Law” is the Noahide commandments. It is their religion for the Gentile.

  • 16 WHEELER // Mar 7, 2013 at 1:21 pm   

    This “All men are created equal” is Masonic. Thomas Jefferson was a Mason. Benjamin Franklin and George Washington were Masons. Thomas Paine, the great ideologue of the American revolution, wrote a book favorable to Masonry. He was not a member, but espoused their ideas of a classless, democratic society.

  • 17 Thrasymachus // Mar 7, 2013 at 1:25 pm   

    Wheeler,

    Jefferson also was for sending the Negroes out of the country. He stated in his Autobiography that the American people were too timid or otherwise unwilling to face the Negro Problem. He predicted the fractured and disfunctional society we now have. Abraham Lincoln thought likewise.

  • 18 R. May // Mar 7, 2013 at 2:10 pm   

    Indeed, humanity automatically sorts itself into tribe and nations. Liberal, neocons, and all too many libertarians are in deep denial about that, and such an attitude leads to profoundly bad public policy. I’ve commented on this and linked to it here:

    Yes there are Jewish social thinkers of modernity who have developed survival techniques. Do they represent the quintessence of Judaism? Are they advocating the positions of Torah?

    Gentlemen, I think not.

    But, as our own country is currently demonstrating, leaders don’t represent people. They don’t really even lead. They advocate what they want. Simple as that.

  • 20 David Yeagley // Mar 7, 2013 at 6:01 pm   

    What ever slack you cut for mistaken notions of any supposed leadership of any people, be sure you cut the same slack to Jewish people.

    But you don’t, because somehow the Jews remain special, and whatever they do that might be considered wrong, is doubly offensive–because you instinctively expect the best from them.

    Wheeler, in spite of your thoughtful words, I think you are confirming my own intuitions here.
