It is thus a strange state of affairs that it is biologically impossible to have a non-Christian high civilization, and yet the clergy of all denominations have done the most to retard the development of the sciences upon which modern civilization and their own prosperity depend. They are the conservative element which acts like a large balance wheel, preventing rapid departures from precedent. Indeed, in every culture from the black savage to the blond Aryan, the clergy are the cords which bind the units into compact organisms. Society, without religion is impossible - and the highest civilization will collapse without the binding force of Christianity. The support of the clergy, a non-producing class, is a biological necessity, for they are commensal organisms rendering vital services. The code of ethics evolved by Christianity has always been beyond our individual reach, and always will be - but Aryan democracy cannot do without it.
Lewis and Clarke mention an association of warriors among the Dakota Indians. These young men, from thirty to thirty-five years old, are bound by vows never to retreat from danger or give way to enemies in battle. They are especially honored above even the chiefs, for they are the safeguard of the tribes. It is the highest expression of altruism and seen only in war in modern times. How different from the Jews, who rarely sacrificed themselves for the good of the social organism supporting them. It is not at all strange that these commensal organisms in Christian nations - the Jews - should practice a religion founded upon individualism. These people cannot possibly unite to form a government of their own, and the Zionist movement is generally recognized as hopelessly impossible. Indeed, Zionism is a biological absurdity.
The centrifugal forces which disrupted the British Church in the period when democracy was increasing individual liberty, gave rise to dissenting churches which are now exceedingly numerous.* They found a congenial environment in America, where personal liberty was at a maximum and a State church an impossibility. These independent churches so characteristic of Aryan democracy are now undergoing the perfectly natural centralization so inevitable in every organization, and are uniting for mutual benefit. Not only are the United Brethren, Congre-gationalists, and Methodists talking of consolidating, but the Baptists of the country are organizing a general convention for better church government, also uniting Southern and Northern Baptists. The Presbyterian church is doing the same with the Cumberland Presbyterians. It is the organization so characteristic of American growth. They are actual organisms now in process of birth by the combination of various units - a corporation. Indeed, all the Protestant churches show a tendency to unite for missionary work. It is to be noticed that this organization is not taking the direction of the Catholic church at all - but toward the Aryan independence of the unit - local autonomy - home rule. It is in the direction of that future democracy we will outline later; firm union of independent units who help others by becoming dependent. In other words, the natural laws governing the organization of cells into animal colonies, are operative in every form of organization from Church to State. Even the organization of individual churches illustrates the types of democracy in the North and South of Europe. The Aryan always tends to make his own church a little democracy of its own, wholly independent of other churches - Congregationalism. The Mediterranean and Alpine types of men tend to let the control remain in the hands of an upper oligarchy, as in their politics. Hence, the churches are ruled by the priesthood - even to the point of a monarchial form of church government. This is the ethnic basis for that wonderful organization of the Roman Cathplic Church, which cannot find a foothold in the most Aryan of nations, but which seems destined to be the greatest one in America, because the types originating it are now flocking here.
