Society is the social organization of any like-minded, blood-related, indigenous people. And since man’s nature is that of the social animal we must have societal structure of some kind, for our very survival and for our progress. The level of culture, progress and stability of a particular society is inherent in its design, character and make-up. Society should take on the appearance of an organic structure consisting of all the cells that make up an organism, arranged and formed into a complete and functioning whole.
The social structure of society should be neither democratic, electoral, aristocratic, caste-class system or plutocracy, but instead should be a social system of Meritocracy, i.e., based on merit, in the inherent intelligence, talents, capacity, character and effort of the individual, who may arise from any family in society – system whereby the talented are chosen and moved ahead in pyramidal form on the basis of their achievement. In turn, society must judge the worth and reward of the individual, not on the type of his work activity (yeoman, artisan or intellectual-culture producing work), or the field of his work (military, government, religious, educational or private), but instead the evaluation of himself and his work must be judged according to the manner, form and quality of his achievement.
Since this is a group of people (or more correctly, a group of families and communities) that must live, work, grow and die together it is obvious that they must all be of the same general ideals, beliefs, moral code and consciousness. Nothing is isolated in society – what affects one affects all.
Society is made up of four basic elements. These are always present (in some form) in any type of society: tribe, clan, nation or civilization. These four basic elements are:
1) Religious Order [spiritual, moral-ethical: druids, priests, shamans]
2) Governing Body [laws-polity, military: state, chief, kingship]
3) Economic [monetary system: work system, livelihood]
4) Social-Racial [blood-language ties, education, media: customs, traditions, elders, scholars]
It is these elements that make up a society. The reason these elements have been present in every society in history is because each element represents each element in man: mind, body and soul (our mental, physical and spiritual-psychological needs). The elements in society are an expression of the elements in man. In order for man to maintain his health and not fall into a state of degeneration these elemental needs must be fulfilled. The religious (representing the spiritual) provides the outlet for the fulfillment and development of our inner being and gives our spiritual and moral codes. The governing body (serving the physical) provides the secure and orderly environment for our families, communities and nation. Economic provides for our physical needs, also, but equally provides for our psychological as well, in the form of our livelihood (work activity), which gives us purpose and meaning, a chance at self-expression, creativity, pride, effort and leadership. Social-Racial – The social provides for our mental, our thirst for knowledge and enlightenment, giving us the semblance of culture in the forms of art, music, literature, science, etc. The racial gives us our identity and sense of belonging; it binds the society and provides the feelings of specialness, exclusiveness and kinship.
Keeping in mind though that each separate societal element is a potential, equal, omnipotent power of its own, and if left to its own device has the power to rule, control or subvert any other element.
Each separate element reflects only one side and one need in man. But, “A human being is a psyche-physical unity. We have no experience of mind, body and soul as separate entities. They are but the inextricable and interdependent parts of our being; or, yet more exactly, but different aspects of one organic whole. They never occur, and strictly should never be considered, apart from one another.”1
So, for man to be a complete whole and for society to be a complete whole, all elements must come together and work in unison, in equal quarter parts, each one playing off the other. Thus, no element should have a separate life of its own. Nor should it be allowed to dominate any other.
But first, there are ideas, concepts and theories (generally necessitating from a reaction to the experiences, triumphs and tragedies of the way of life that existed before) which develop into an outlook-on-life, mentality, a Consciousness. From this philosophy-of-life and historical perspective an Ethos is established. This is the value system for every member of that society (nation). From this declaration the four elements (constitutions) are formed.
Society at its roots, is control – the control of our natural human traits. Nature has provided the mass of men, the majority, with an overpowering instinct. This instinct puts the mass of men all on basically the same self-motivated effort level. It is what keeps man on an immature level, keeps him from self-mastery, and is the very reason he must be given direction, guidance and control. On one hand, this instinct holds man back from realizing his full potential (intelligence, talents), on the other, it keeps him from becoming atomized and is actually what allows society to happen. For like Ibsen says, “The strongest man on earth is he who stands most alone.” But alone means no society, no progress, enlightenment or development, no arts, literature, science, music, language – no culture.
The failure of all great cultures, societies and civilizations was and is man’s inability to see, recognize and then control our natural human traits.
But control comes in many forms: force, coercion, guidance, enticement, education and manipulation. Each of the four elements represents its own form of control. In almost all societies past, the form of control came primarily from only one of the four elements (or if more, they were separate and represented their own power structures).
With the analogy of parent to child we see what happens when a dominant, ignorant parent raises a child with only the use of force and fear. And the opposite when an ignorant, liberal parent raises a child with no discipline, self-control or regulation – producing the spoilt child (and the modern man). But this extreme method of control (or extreme lack of) retards man from his full growth and development and leaves him and society unbalanced and unstable. Which brings us to one of the main points of this paper, that being, that the key-to-life is balance. All life struggles for balance. Balance is what maintains health and stability. When the four elements come together they offer the proper balance of control. In the end we actually get the semblance of less control and more freedom than we would get from one element trying to control all the other elements in man.
The elements, then, become the moral and value standards for society. Tempered with an elder system, the control factor takes on the forms of customs, traditions, creeds, constitutions and codes. The reason for set standards (elements) is because of the extreme rarity of individuals in any given generation having the level of character, capacity and understanding needed for the complexity of leading and guiding a society with no set standards. So the idea of having a successor (each of whom are of their own ideas and philosophy of life) of the proper caliber at the helm of a society each and every time a new leader is needed is a ludicrous one.
So it stands to reason that the destiny of each society’s health and well-being lies in the validity of its elements.
If even one element is of a false and perfidious nature it may eventually infect and poison all other healthy elements. An example of a society with sick and injurious elements is the Western Civilization of today. It amazingly has four false elements: 1) The Religious – with its pacifistic, anti-nature, superstitious creed; 2) The Governing Body – with its theory of equality, its democracy and election process; 3) The Economic – with its usurious, materialistic monetary system and its mass-industrialistic work system; and, 4) The Social-Racial – the social with its liberalism and lack of an elder system, and the racial – with its lack of a homogenous racial creed.
There is an equally dangerous factor of having the lack of an element. For instance, suppose a society had all the healthy elements but lacked, for example, the racial element. The society would then be open to the threat of rampant immigration, with the obvious problems of different races living together. An example in case is the Jewish race, who, when living in another’s society, refuse to assimilate, work themselves into positions of influence and then proselytize their own beliefs, customs and consciousness. This, of course, causes a breakdown and ultimate disintegration of the original moral and value codes of the host nation. Even people of the same race, but of different cultures, must go through a slow process of assimilation – but because they are of the same blood/race, assimilation occurs in a natural process.
Because of the cancerous nature of the elements described above (or the lack of such), the degeneration of society and its ultimate destruction is inevitable.
A society is by its nature artificial; it takes on a form much like that of the machine – if used in proper amounts (and used correctly) it can be of great benefit to man; but if allowed to get out of control, by not taking the human condition into consideration, it can easily become a “Frankenstein.”
The tendency of society is to put man in an unnatural state. There are basically two unnatural states produced by society. One is of the oppressive and repressive nature, by not allowing man’s instinctual desires to be fulfilled (and in some cases, like that of Christianity, denying that some instincts even exist). The second unnatural state produced by society is the exact opposite. It is when man’s desires are allowed to be satiated in excess.
When man lived in a primitive state his instincts and desires were kept in check (often brutally) by raw nature and external forces. But when man lives in a society (especially one of prosperity) he experiences the chance of fulfilling his instinctual desires in abundance, sometimes without limit. If there is no force to keep these desires in check and balance it becomes excessive over-indulgence. For the man not capable of the understanding and self-discipline necessary to control this behavior (the mass), it leads people to hedonism, laziness, apathy, comfort-seeking, leisure, boredom, etc., and this in turn leads to the weakening of man, and society in general.
Whenever man is in an unnatural state and his psychological and instinctual needs are out of balance (excessive or repressive) he experiences symptoms of frustration, hostility, depression, anxiety and excessive stress. When kept in this state for a length of time, the effects of this condition manifest themselves into the degeneration we see today in rampant alcoholism, drug abuse, hedonism, suicide, crime, thrill seeking, etc.
Most modern men of today believe the “progress” of man, is man in some new, changed or evolved form, that he is something genetically different and better than any before him. This progressionist thinker believes mankind and society are automatically moving toward some higher end or goal.
This is a dangerous “idea,” and it is having disastrous results. In reality, the progress of man and society is nothing more than man’s discovery of himself and the world around him. Man of today is the man of 10,000 years ago, with the same instincts, capacities and psychological make-up, then as now. The development of man and society is like that of the lone man in his individual life span – from birth to old age he is continually learning, growing and discovering himself and his environment. Technology, science, literature, languages, polity, arts, music, industrialism, etc., these are effects of man discovering himself and his environment (the resources of nature). The more knowledge, enlightenment and understanding a man gains through life, the better and smaller the world appears around him.
If this lone man’s development were to end with his death the next man would have to go through the process all over again. But with the grouping of man and then societies, much of this information and discovery is passed on, and improved and added onto, from one generation to the next; thus the semblance of progress and the false appearance of man changing. But the man himself, his mind-body-soul make-up never changes. Education, enlightenment and necessity only bring out the potential man already has in him.
On the societal level, as long as man uses his ability to examine and study societies of the past, learn from their mistakes and successes, society and its elements will continue to improve.
So far in history, we have seen that some “ideas” can have catastrophic results. A few ideas and methods that became elements come to mind: communism, liberal-democracy, egalitarianism, multi-culturalism, progressionist theories, superstitious anti-nature religions, hereditary aristocracy, mass-industrialism, to name a few – the main “ideas.” Actually, all of these ideas and methods are anti-nature – that is, they don’t take man’s human nature into consideration. So, all of the so-called “progress” in the world is of little use if man’s new discoveries and enlightenments soon lead him to ruin. Ideas have consequences.
The goal of society then, is to have men and elements that have a thorough philosophic and physiognomic understanding of man’s behaviors, instincts and natural human traits, with elders of the vision and foresight to know if and where a particular idea, belief or theory might lead. Because even if a society were to begin with four healthy elements, in order to maintain this health it must still have men of the proper capacity and caliber at the helm of each element. And this is only possible if the society has the proper structure for allowing the best and most qualified men to assume these positions.
Note: When we mention elders, the Jewish race comes to mind. There is a definite wisdom to their elder system. Probably the single most important reason the Jews have stayed together as a race (even with their nomadic and parasitic nature) is because of the rabbi. To Jews the rabbi is more than just a figurehead of their religion. He is a teacher, scholar, mentor, spiritual advisor and big brother all in one, there for all of his people.
Using the United States of America as an example, we see that America started with a constitution to the element of the governing body, but with no other constitutions for the other three elements. And without the direction and control of a constitution, men of a base nature are able to use and manipulate these unguided, non-structured and lawless elements for their own malicious purposes, to subvert and eventually overthrow the laws, ideals and consciousness of this lone element – the United States Constitution.
We should now see why it is imperative that each one of the four elements have a separate constitution of its own, formulated with the whole of society in mind, to work in unison with all other elements. In turn, the four constitutions (elements) derive their inspirations, ideals and theories of laws and codes from the Ethos, for it becomes the supreme fundament of the land.
This paper is the beginning of the preface to the four volumes written on each of the elements. Each volume of an element would be a compilation of all the knowledge, enlightenment, history and experiences of all our past societies and civilizations. From our ancestors we have much learning and experience to build from. To quote from one of our great ancestors: “… humanity will always have to continue building where the last good foundation stops. It will not have to be ashamed of using already existing truths. For the whole of human culture, as well as man himself, is only the result of a single long development in which every generation contributed and fitted in its stone. Thus the meaning and purpose of revolutions is not to tear down the whole building, but to remove what is bad or unsuitable and to continue building on the sound spot that has been laid bare. Thus alone can we, and may we, speak of the progress of humanity.”2
So, a society begins with a consciousness (the seed), the elements become the fruit, the society represents the entire plant (or organism). If the society began life in conjunction with the cosmos, with mother-nature, then with human nature, and if it has within its genetic code (the elements) the ability and will to adapt, live with and to live within the boundaries (laws) of nature, it will be destined to remain healthy and strong, and it will propagate and progress. If it did not, it will go through the inevitable process of all organisms that did not or could not – Decay and Extinction.
RELIGIOUS CREED ECONOMIC CONSTITUTION
Ethos: the distinguishing character, sentiment, or moral nature: the guiding beliefs, standards or ideals that characterize or pervade a group, community, or people. The complex of fundamental values that underlie, permeate, or actuate major patterns of thought and behavior in any particular culture, society or institution (the value system of a group).
Nationality: a usually large and closely associated aggregation of people having a common and distinguishing racial, linguistic and cultural background and forming one constituent element of a larger group (as a nation). A group of people, tribes, or communities, bound together by a common-law or government.
Consciousness: “Knowledge is a collection of data – organized data, presumably – in someone’s mind, together with a system for making sense of it. But consciousness is a higher state of development. Consciousness is knowledge plus motivation. Knowledge involves only the mental faculty; consciousness involves a coupling of the mental and the spiritual faculties. Knowledge resides in the mind, in the depths; consciousness becomes a part of the personality; it resides on the surface as well as in the depths; it permeates the being.”3
Consciousness is not just the set of opinions, knowledge, values or understanding, but it is the total configuration in any given individual, which make up his whole perception of reality, his whole world view. It is that by which he creates his own life and thus creates the society in which he lives. Consciousness then, becomes the way one lives, perceives and interprets life.
Meritocracy: an educational system whereby the talented and meritorious are chosen and moved ahead on the basis of their achievement; leadership by the talented.
National-Ethos: a movement that believes a society is comprised of four elements; the Religious, the Economic, the Governing-Body, and the Social-Racial. And that these elements must have set standards (constitutions) that coexist with each other and with an overriding value and belief system (Ethos), that unites all families, communities and people into one National Union. A nation (society) bound by one common race, religion, language, social structure, culture, economy, governing-body, and consciousness.
