In order to impart their artificial identity to the people, nation-states embrace cultural homogeneity. They need to destroy traditional values so that people accept new ones. In doing so, states, essentially totalitarian institutions, enlist their opposite, the liberals.

Liberals break cultural values under the guise of encouraging tolerance to deviations. Civil unions offer homosexuals excellent tolerance: they are tolerated in the sense that they are not being persecuted or discriminated against. But calling their partnerships “families” imposes their values on society, which has to adapt its own understanding of families to the deviants. The difference is not merely semantic, but whether a family serves the societal interest of procreation or is irrelevant to the society, and is just a vehicle for pleasure. Tolerance lessons in schools inevitably turn into propaganda for homosexuality because it is elevated to a norm rather than tolerated as a harmless deviation. Libertarianism means a cultural blank slate, and leaves societies with no reason to ban other harmless behavior such as bestiality, adult incest, or public urination. All-permissiveness quickly turns into arbitrary prohibitions: societies that tolerate pornography crack down on vaguely defined hate speech. Criticizing the liberal policies becomes the most prohibited thing of all: who would dare to defend racism in the private sphere

Values are commonly connected to restrictions. Since values cannot be justified rationally, courts often strike down the restrictions. When pro-lifers could not prove the divine origin of the human soul in courts, the judicial establishment renounced anti-abortion laws as unreasonable restrictions. In the world of formal justice, liberals always win. Then, they repress the people of values for seeking to impose restrictions. In a twist, traditionalists become anti-social elements and even criminals because violence is all that is left to them.

Societies can never be value-less—on the contrary, societies are defined through their values. Democracy and liberalism are no less arbitrary values than religion or the ban on homosexuality. Ancient societies were somewhat permissive toward homosexuality but had other firm values, whether religious or chauvinistic.

States further break the societal fabric through welfare. Social welfare breaks families by making them economically irrelevant. Parents no longer depend on their children for retirement, and can afford to alienate their children through divorce.

Municipal projects, welfare, and access to government institutions encourage the development of large cities where the bonds of neighborhood are broken. Residents maintain ties neither to family nor to neighbors. Instead, they build ad hoc, artificial ties: to government institutions, sports teams, African recipients of their charity, or internet communities. More often, they suffer from incredible loneliness among millions of residents of the same city.

This unnatural absence of horizontal, cultural ties spells the end of nation-states and a return to small communities. People of such neighborhoods share the same values and live in moral comfort. Incidentally, such small, dispersed communities are the only ones militarily viable in the age of nuclear proliferation.
