Myth and Culture

To quote what’s left of Arnold: “Old but not obsolete. ” My views on ethnonationalism have gained nuance with regards to the question of pan, but I stand by my confession otherwise. We cannot understand Folksoul without treating ourselves as timeless organisms. There is no one hand point of evolution. The Anglo was the Englishman who was the Germanic Tribe which was the inheritor of Palæolithic Europe, that was something older than even this. The same root applies to all current European rootstocks who at some point converge on Yggdrasil, despite the unignorable differences of today. Anyways. Happy Sunday.

The Serpent's Loft

Much ado is made of the Ancestors, and with due course, of course. We are here because they were there. A common quandary among Nationalists is the case of where we lie in their wake. It is commonly regarded that we are a shadow of our Ancestral glory. It is said the Ancestors are laughing at us from their graves, et cetera, und so weiter. I have found myself pushing back against this logic with my compatriots, for the utility of the claim is lacking. Even if, in what I perceive to be the two most fundamental ways it may be true. So I shall betray myself and outline the ways in which I find the claim agreeable, and further extrapolate what I perceive needs be the solution.

First of all things, there is one way in which we remain the same that causes us to stand in their shadow…

  1. Seax,
    Too long. I agree with the premise that we are products of our histories, traditions and influences. But the blending of cultures, as we have now, allows for humnkind to evolve in ever more creative ways.

    Genetic and cultural intermixing is good for everyone, if people can get beyond their prejudices.

    Rather than continue in the “us vs. them” mode that characterizes today’s human mindset, I believe it would be wise to recognize that everyone has a role to play. Is blue a better color than red? It depends on the circumstances and the intent. Each is valid in its appropriate context.

    1. Agreed. It’s generally better to adopt an “us for our own” mindset rather than an ad hominem or versus something. It eliminates the highly weaponised questions of superiority that act only as distractions.

      Inasmuch as blending cultures wholesale goes. I retain a cautious skepticism. The option ought to be there for who want it. But the option to maintain self-determination must be available if for no other reason than a question of preservation. After all, nobody recommends endangered animals go ahead and breed themselves out. I believe we have reached a tipping point where the returns of globalist multiculturalism have reached their end and have become deleterious.

      If there was an incentive for improvement in such an arrangement it would be one thing, but at present cultures are blended only to increase their capital consumerism.

      Or at least that’s how I see it.

  2. Given that you are right about this . . .
    Maybe my thinking is too far ahead of the groupthink, in that I want everyone to get along. It certainly shouldn’t be forced from the outside, or even the inside. I do believe that efforts to understand the others’ perspective would go a long way toward resolving differences amicably.

    1. I agree. I know from personal experience growing up, that being understanding of others differences is made difficult when you are asked this while simultaneously not being given a platform to do it from. When I taught, the problem had ceased to be ignorance of platform but active dismantling of it. I think the natural conclusion to that poor combination in society explains a lot of the burgeoning violence. Nobody feels at home, and everything is someone else’s fault with only shadowy bureaucracies to blame. The grassroots is the only thing, I think, which can provide grounding for the people who don’t want to go over the cliff to stop.

      But again. That’s me.

      1. Relatable. There was a radiohead I used to listen to. Father Corapi. He used to say: “be open minded, but not so open minded your brains fall out.” Civility and clemency are virtues which seem to be falling out of favour with unsettling rapidity.

      2. People like us plant seeds for the rebirth of civility and clemency. The fall, they dying of the year, leaves promise for the spring, rebirth and renewal.

        Thus say historic traditions in every culture I know of.
