The common Mindset of the Prussian system where men who carried in their souls the fire of true revolutionaries and the Leibnizian Revolution moved forward in all sectors of society as the true leadership all had a common perspective on how everything needed to be transformed and how to transform it.

This worked so well that, in my opinion, this formed the inspiration for the Progressive Movement in America; Teddy Roosevelt would have been right at home in Prussia during this time.

Remember the term "Socialist" simply means redistributionist with government control of most of the economic and political system. This should be contrasted with "Communism" which is simply the purely Talmudic form of government and State Capitalism where the people outside the elite are property.

Look at the power of the mindset of the Prussian leadership and see how they transformed every sector of their society in accordance with their vision.

From the unification of the Germanics, the rise of the Germany as the first scientific and industrial power, the transformation of the entire education system in support of these goals; particular praise goes to the intensely meritocratic NAPOLA system of NSDAP Germany where the children of the working class could have the same elite schooling as the children of the Junkers. The excellent film Before the Fall shows some of what this was like, the limits to internal growth through food supplies (calling Mr. Bismarck!), and yet, above all, the mastery of what Buckminster Fuller called "The Machine Tool Principle".

The foundational mindset was carried in their heart reflecting the fire in their souls.

I think the Progressive Movement developed as the American version of this system as well as the only possible counterbalance to it. In turn, our first targets as we walked the path to Empire were the declining Empires, notably Spain in the New World, and the Far East.

Note that the foremost exponent of this in public was the remarkably well-read and well-educated Theodore Roosevelt who looked at Eurasia from a very deep strategic perspective. He was perhaps ideally qualified to broker the peace treaty ending the Russo-Japanese War.

Yet certain things had to happen to make the Progressive Movement possible. For instance, America had to neutralize the South's ability to block internal improvements and the taxation measures needed to make them possible. This, more than the issue of slavery, was why the South as historically organized had to go. You simply could not compete with what smart people saw developing in Prussia and this was before Bismarck took over as Prime Minister of Prussia. The South's Constitutional power to block internal improvements meant the South was in the way and had to be reformed.

And reformed it was, with the Fourteenth Amendment vesting citizenship in the Country and not the State.

As Germany moved into high gear America had to transform itself and this was too important to be left to a vote of the people, particularly when the people were doing well as landed farmers and small businessmen, now organizing into larger business structures following the shift in industrial organization encouraged by the Civil War.

In turn, the Progressives always looked to Prussia and the United Germanics and proceeded to adopt and adapt such of their institutions as they could.

Now, look at the unique depth of education and training of Theodore Roosevelt groomed to go to Harvard when admission to Harvard was based not merely on social class but also on a meritocratic series of exams based on knowledge of the Classical World. You had to know Latin and you had to be able to discuss at length how Rome developed, fell, and was transformed.

Take men who saw the Western world in such terms and could see what the new technological system was beginning to do in terms of transforming the world and how the issue of Prussian supremacy of Europe was all but inevitable.

Think Rhodes established the Rhodes Scholarships at least in part as a British counterweight to German supremacy in Europe? Remember, Germany began out of a common customs union. Think this concept could be extended to all of Europe that would gladly join with the technological and industrial superpower Germany was becoming?

Think the Progressives saw this?

That is in part our challenge, to develop the mindset of what we need to become the New Progressives in a world that is vastly overcrowded and is running against the absolute limits to growth, fresh water is the first of these, and faces the decline of all of mankind in a race to the bottom.

This then is our challenge, the development of the New Progressives and with them the foundation of a Meritocratic Aristocracy to lead on the other side of what is to come.

And the foundation of all activities must look to the touchstone of race as the living bridge between family and culture with family as the microcosm of race and race as the macrocosm of family.

Anyone feel like rereading a biography of Theodore Roosevelt in this light?

And now you know, in part, why I have been paying for judo lessons for my nephews...
