Modern naturalism "derives" from scientific revolutionaries, but so did the Third Reich, The Monkees, and Weight Watchers. That kind of derivation is not very meaningful.
When I say that modern naturalism derives from fiscal overlords, what I mean is that it bases all of the evidence, on which the naturalist draws her conclusions about the world, upon the scientific consensuses that were paid for, disseminated, and supported by the plutocrats many naturalists so regularly decry.
This philosophy may be accurate. However, it rests only on the world that the reigning powers of the naturalist's day--the international financial elites who control world governments, corporations, armies, police forces, entertainment, science, education, public opinion, etc.--have described. All those studies, institutions, books, articles, childhood classes, and answers from your parents came from that information; from those sources.
Can you accept that, oh naturalist? The Democratic Party of the United States, for example, fosters evolution by natural selection and the Big Bang, thereby supplying the answers to the most profound questions about our existence, and the existence of the entire universe. The most fundamental claims about matter, reality, and consciousness rest upon the scientific conclusions of the industrial and post-industrial tyrant states, and it is from those conclusions that the naturalist takes the next steps.
When these elites' conclusions are challenged, they make themselves out to be rebels, because their new conclusions have claimed to be the successors of mild, bourgeois rebels now hundreds of years dead. This is untrue; the impoverished Jesus may have been a rebel in his day, but the later, Christianized Roman Empire had no claim to any legacy of "Christian rebellion" against authority, empire, religious conformity, poverty, et cetera--even if they had the biggest churches and the most golden crosses.
Similarly, the technocrats of today claim that they are rebels because they call themselves "scientists," and some rebels in the past also called themselves scientists. Galileo, though, offending the most powerful men in the world by insisting upon observational evidence, bears no resemblance to the educational megacorporations that drug "hyperactive" workers, sweep the citizenry with radioactive fields, and dismiss debate as a pointless exercise.
The seeds of the next phase's horror wait inside the hopeless narratives of those who now slaughter children.
