“The Group Strategy (Philosophy) of Western Civilization in Scientific Terms: Excellence and Heroism, Sovereignty and Reciprocity, Truth and Duty, The Jury and Markets in Everything.”
The secret to western civilization, besides being a small, relatively poor population on the edge of the bronze age, is that by the choice of voluntary militia, military tactics of maneuver requiring contractualism, and heroic sovereignty (ownership of gains), we necessitated natural law, and markets in everything. And as a consequence the west was not first, but in every era we were fastest. In other words, truth, promise(contract), natural law, and jury allow us to adapt faster than every other known method of human cooperation.
The indo european expansion, the greek and roman eras, the continental era, the age of sail, and the industrial era, all continued and expanded on this strategy.
But where did it come from?
… Pastoralists to Mixed Pastoralist-Farmers.
… Concentration of wealth impossible
… cattle raiding
… entrepreneurial warfare
MILITARY STRATEGY AND TACTICS
… horse, bronze, wheel,
… distance and maneuver
… (Cattle, then scale, kill men, take cattle and women)
… (Women were household labor force and had value)
… (Women obtained independence and her own household by marriage to wealth – and escaped servitude)
… ownership of spoils
… democratic dispute resolution
… displays of wealth to increase numbers
… heroism to increase social standing and opportunities
… Property by demonstrated interest
… Sovereignty and Reciprocity
… Oath and Contract
… Judge and Jury
… Ruler and Thang
… Senate and House
… Senate and Houses
… Federal senate and houses,
… … State senate and houses,
… … … Local cabinet and democracy.
… … … … Neighborhood “meet”
… … … … … Family “table”
MARKETS IN EVERYTHING
… produced markets in everything
… association, cooperation, production, reproduction, commons, polities, defense, and war.
TOGETHER BROUGHT US
… Realism, Naturalism, Operationalism
… Reason, Rationalism, Science, Mathematics.
… Engineering, Technology, Medicine
… And the rescue of man from primitivism.
AND BROUGHT US
… Truth and Trust
… Continuous reduction of transaction costs
… continuous devotion of savings of production to the production of commons.
AT THE COST OF
… (enemy > slave > workers > family) Suppression of the reproduction of those unable to produce economic independence – which is much harder than it seems, because alienation from a household meant near certain death.
… Continuing Selection Pressure alleviated by agrarianism, and the resulting dysgenia – particularly urban dysgenia.
AND SOCIALLY, BECAUSE OF THOSE MARKETS:
… There are Three Possible Means of Coercion:
… … Force, boycott, trade
… Allowing and Incentivizing Three Sets of Elites:
… … Military (State), Legal(polity), and Religious(family)
… Trifunctionalism: Our Three Sacred Faiths:
… … The MILITIA of every able bodied man – we are an army,
… … The LAW, our jury, and our rights – we are unruled because we tolerate only rule of law
… … Our RELIGION whether Christian (familial), Pagan (martial and historical) or heathen (ancestors and nature).
Because they are sacred, no man, no organization, no state, no enemy, may violate these faiths.
AND MANEUVER/INITIATIVE WARFARE
… Continued Adaptivity
AND JUDGE DISCOVERED LAW
AND RESULTING MARKETS
… Continued Adaptivity
AND RESULTING EUGENICS
… Continued Adaptivity
AND RESULT WAS
… The Production of Agency: Evolution.
CREATING THE ONLY PEOPLE NOT TO FAIL
… From this understanding we might suggest the chances of life in the universe not stagnating and collapsing as has islam is small.
THEREFORE – THE WEST: ADAPTIVE VELOCITY
… The secret to western civilization, besides being a small, relatively poor population on the edge of the bronze age, is that by the choice of voluntary militia, military tactics of maneuver requiring contractualism, and heroic sovereignty (ownership of gains), we necessitated natural law, and markets in everything. And as a consequence the west was not first, but in every era we were fastest. In other words, truth, promise(contract), natural law, and jury allow us to adapt faster than every other known method of human cooperation.
AND MINDFULNESS IN THE MILITARY-TRIFUNCTIONAL ORDER
1. Authoritarian Order
2. Commercial Order,
3. Military(militial) Order,
4. Religious Order
5. Diasporic Order
RESPECT UNDER MILITARISM
In the western tradition we are all members of a vast army fulfilling our duties. We all are due respect no matter our rank, as long as we do our duty. We are all due disrespect or even punishment if we do not do our duties. This is how we produced harmony – more harmony than any other civilization in history – while at the same time producing the most adaptive and rapidly evolutionary body of people in human history. We took control of evolution.
HARMONY UNDER MILITARISM
Mindfulness (Harmony): Professional military aristocracy, a Militia of every able bodied man, creates full time military: All men in military earn respect and are given respect for doing their duty; all duty is necessary and valuable for the success of the group in a high risk venture; rank is by demonstrated ability and merit (although often of families), leadership (captains, generals, kings) are chosen by the men who choose who to follow. In other words, every man gets a share of honor, and buys the franchise. This is the source of western harmony, and it is the strongest source of harmony available to man. (And is different from all other peoples).
OTHERS THEY ARE UNFIT FOR SERVICE – AND FOR THE CONSTITUTION
Western Civilization has been since its foundation, A militia. An army. A militarized society. We gain harmony from doing our duty, and sovereignty for having done it. Sovereignty is harder that liberty by permission, and freedom by promise.
And all those who have come to us postwar to undermine that civilization are unfit for service. That is why they resist our constitution our natural law our markets, our responsibility – because they are not capable of sovereignty.
SO IN SUMMARY: EUROPEAN STRATEGY IS:
Competitive Excellence (Success) by,
… the Continuous Production of Agency;
… through continuous invention, continuous adaptation, and continuous domestication, regardless of costs to the status, competence, dominance hierarchy – whether the self, family, or leadership;
by the combination of:
… Heroism as Contribution to Commons, and;
… Truth Regardless of Consequences to the Status, Competence, and Dominance Hierarchy – whether the self, family or leadership and;
… Duty Regardless of Consequences to the self and family;
…. Sovereignty and Reciprocity including reciprocal insurance of sovereignty and reciprocity regardless of costs to the self and family;
Leaving the only possible rules of cooperation as:
… The Rule of Law, The Law of Tort (property), the Independent Judiciary, and;
… Markets (meritocracy) in every aspect of life: association, cooperation, reproduction, production, commons, polities, and war;
… Seeking and Finding of Pareto Optimums, in all markets;
… The upward redistribution of reproduction defeating regression to the mean;
… And the rapid transformation of men into the gods they imagined in the neolithic, bronze, iron, and steel ages.
