I've said before that what makes a nation European is its streets: no homeless, cleanly, orderly and regularly used.

If you want to know how advanced a society is, take a look at the streets and, as Varg observed, the rivers. It is not enough to have only streets or rivers with boats. To be an advanced civilization means your streets are:
1) regularly used
2) well maintained
3) clean/orderly

If any of those 3 are missing, it is not an advanced civilization:
No usage = abandoned society and useless littering of roads upon the environment.
Not maintained = does its job ineffectively
Not clean = people are permitted to use it who don't respect it or others using it (social degeneracy)

The imagery of an 'Imperium' is seemingly only separated from brutalism and its seeming Semitic features by its context: being ran by men of power, as ancient Romans constructed their pillars. Brutalism is post-WW2 exemplification of horror, 'oppression'.

If only a civilization could be measured by its "cleanliness".

The sight of the tree shouldn't step in the way of the whole forest.

A race, a tribe is measured by its relationship with world, existence, in other words its culture; culture is measured by the civilization or civilizations it produces; civilization is evaluated by its products i.e. art, including language, its spiritual beliefs and rituals, its social rites, its techniques and technologies.

The standard is always natural order, or world.
Also called objective, in relation to an interpreting and reacting subjective conciousness.

From where do you stand to "measure" something?

What kind of "evaluation" do you do?
Considering what?
Upon what grounds?

Do you truly consider Art, Language, Spiritual Beliefs and/or Rituals, Social Rites, Techniques/Technologies as "products"?

There is something off in that reasoning, but I don't mind reading some more to clarify.

All is measured, evaluated in relation to an indifferent standard, i.e. nature.
By 'nature' I mean objective reality, or 'world'.
The method is empirical, so it adheres to scientific methodology.

Biological standards evaluate according to survivability and reproductive success.
This is a primitive standard used by primal minds.

More sophisticated minds use the ideal as their standard of evaluating success and failure.
So, Aryan Tribes place awareness and family, and quality, above survival, they place the 'ariston' above their own survival and procreation.
The Aryans also placed a particular demeanour and way of thinking as their ideal - this produced particular kinds of humans.

The ideal must be in alignment with the physical and the metaphysical, as I explained elsewhere.

Not all ideals are created equal. Some produce a higher harmony between body/mind via the nervous system, and others create dissonance, disharmony, detaching mind from body, along the nervous system - detachment of ideal from the real, or the 'subjective' from the 'objective'.
For example 'equality' is a human ideal that has no reference to anything real - its an objective that is entirely manmade, existing only in human minds - pure ideal.
Other similar concepts are 'justice', 'fairness', 'immortality', 'absolute', 'one/nil'; other concepts such as 'morality', 'god', 'human' are corrupted by Nihilistic ideology, altering their original meaning, or detaching them from perceivable, testable, observable phenomena, converting them, in this way, to pure ideas/ideals - making them ideological.
Nihilism can only exist as ideology, because it seeks to 'correct' the 'present' by escaping the past, and the only way to escape it is by noetically negating it, i.e. forgetting, denying, dismissing, nullifying, and sublimating it into its warped ideological concepts - adjusting the perceived to the ideology and not the ideology to the perceived.
This requires unpacking, which is done in other posts on this forum.
I use the triad Body/Nervous System/Mind as the foundation of Platonic psyche that developed into Christian father/holy ghost/son nihilism.
Nihilism, for instance, also has an ideal to evaluate itself and the world, but its ideal is in contradiction to body, or the physical, and often nullifies it, ergo it is Nihilistic.
For example, many modern forms of Nihilism - because Nihilism is multifarious due to the fact that it need not adhere to any natural order limiting its 'creativity' - idealize parity, i.e. equality, claiming all are born the same, and only differ after-the-fact due to socialization, i.e. nurturing. To justify their fate they negate physical appearance, as 'illusion' or as meaningless.

No, I consider them technologies/techniques, i.e. externalization of esoteric processes, that can and are made into products to be sold and purchased.
The Modern compensates for the void in himself/herself by purchasing these techniques/Technologies, believing he's equalized himself, with those he feels inferior to....or even surpassed them. but this only makes him dependent on these externalized techniques/technologies, and on those that produce and provide them. The clever noes also manipulate those who become dependent no their products by including into their techniques/technologies an underlying message - the 'medium IS the message'. The technology's 'logic' alters the psychology of the user.    

Technologies include, 'monogamy', 'language', 'laws'...anything that externalized noetic ideas, using a medium.
For example language uses sound and then form, via the medium of atmosphere and then stone, and then it advances towards paper, and then pure electronic code.
The technique/technology of language mirrors neural pulses, in the form of sonar sequences of tone, duration, crescendo, each transmitting a message.
this is an imitation of neurological pulses used by the organic body.
The computer, for example, brings together many techniques/technologies to externalize the brains processes and methods, as these have been understood by the creator, i.e. human.
Know Thyself, is the foundation of techniques/technologies.

Modernity, like I said, sells these technologies as a way of compensating for the individual's lack of self-knowledge and any other genetic weakness....ergo a simpleton can imitate genius using Google.....I call this the Google Genius syndrome, because it gives the false impression, to the user, that he is equal to everyone because he can access knowledge and understanding on-line.

The ultimate logical conclusion of civilization:



What an "economic" use of space. Who cares if the design resembles a prison or the pod system in matrix, look at how shiny it is.

Oy vey goyim, don't you wish to be good little podlings in this system we have designed for you? Who needs nature anyways...
