I have a deep concern for the future which stems from the way in which the majority of our people think. This is certainly the most significant issue, for a right-thinking collective can deal with all manner of external ills.
Back in my political days, there was often discussion about state involvement in our movement. Yet the most common problem was simply individuals not getting along, which led to petty squabbles and the forming of warring factions, splits and so forth.
If the mindset of all involved had been dedicated to the greater good, and the chattering ego had been silenced, great achievements would have been made.
Now of course, one may argue that the state can disrupt through the use of psy-ops rather than simple infiltration of an organisation, yet my rule of spiritual soundness equally applies.
In Odinist myth, our folk came from Hyperborea and moved into what we now call Europe and then spread further still. This we call the ‘Folk Wanderings’. The reason this is important, and why I have long followed this path, is that it gives a logical lineage for our people.
In regards to our present political situation, I would argue that it is important to step back from the petty arguments of division and view our entire folk under one collective umbrella.
Our enemies (which I will discuss shortly) thrive off division, and what is needed is not a plan for each of our nations to choose which other nation to side with, but to propose an idea which brings all of our folk together.
We may look at the world in terms of Russia vs America with Europe stuck in the middle, and that may be valid in pure political terms, but ultimately this division will be our downfall.
My assertion is that there must be one Folkish Mission which every nation from America to Russia to Europe to South Africa to Australia can subscribe to in spiritual and ideological terms, whilst at the very same time allowing room for national tradition and localised religious practice to remain unharmed.
This Folkish Mission supersedes politics, for in time the change in the way our folk will begin to think will feed into politics and thus change will occur.
The Folkish Mission is not to be a set of manifesto bullet points but a return to true folkish thinking, as hinted at in my previous articles.
An Odinist who attempts to forcibly convert a Christian or vice versa will simply create resentment. Likewise, a man of a particular political persuasion will generally find it hard to convince others of his precise view of the world. But if we are able to delve deep into who we really are and emit the light of the gods in all we do, that unsaid vision will permeate all we touch and all those we are in contact with. If one radiates goodness, there can be little to argue against.
It is folly to put our faith in politicians, for there is a shadow hand at work. Aligning a Putin with a Trump to suppress China, or pitting the financial force of the European Union and Russia against the United States may have short-term economic merit, but economics simply puts food on the table; it does not save a folk from spiritual destruction.
Depending on one’s level of awakening, the shadow hand may be the Deep State or it may be something on another level altogether. But, and this is so important, the enemy does not matter because you can only fix yourself. This cannot be said loudly enough; for too long our mission has been to deal with what is ‘out there’ rather than what is ‘in here’.
Also understand that although awakening can in part be driven forwards, it is also a cycle. Thus we must be patient; just as the farmer cannot rush the growth of his crop, so we cannot rush the awakening of our folk; we simply have to encourage it and offer the correct growing conditions.
In academic terms, one can argue all the trendy terms, such as Indo-European, Aryan, Western etcetera. But deep down we know. Some years ago, it was common for the media to attack British nationalist politicians by asking them to describe what it meant to be British or English. This is like asking a songwriter to explain the emotion of love; as skilled as he is, the description will never equal the inner feeling or ‘kenning’ (a deep knowing).
The petty arguments must stop and a wider Folkish Mission must begin to unite all of our peoples to the point where the psy-op arrows do not penetrate our psychological armour and the physical attacks can be confidently dealt with.
As our own folk begin to awaken and move forward, proud of their local traditions but with hearts set on the wholeness of our collective peoples, the shadow hand will weaken its grip.
Remember too that our folk are not the only ones being fooled.
P R have you read Faye? I think he delivered a great model most of us could get behind. Much in line with your powerful statements here.
I prefer Archeofuturism and Convergence of Catastrophes. But yes!
Hello Atlantean; I am currently listening to ‘Why We Fight’ and I like Faye’s push towards action. As far as present politics is concerned I understand his ideas of forming alliances, however as I put in my article, I think it best to avoid division of our folk simply for the sake of economics and strive towards total unity. Yet I do realise my point is a very grand ideal.
The audio books of Faye’s work from Arktos are all of amazing quality!
This may be Arktos’s best regular author, Always writing in a positive, constructive way. It is highly appreciated!
Very kind. Thank you. Despite there being much darkness in the world, it is important for us to strive for the light. Blind positivity can be naive, but we are the people of the light and as such we should believe in ourselves.
I’d love to see a weightlifting article from you!
Interesting idea. Thanks.
What can we do to prevent these tendencies? I’d be interested in your thoughts.
On an individual level, we can meditate and further our process of awakening. On a group level it is a harder problem, for awakening the masses ties in with the Yugic cycles. Thus I say to ‘fix yourself’ and be a beacon of light for others to follow.
Happy to see an Odinist and right winger writing here. Too many Odinists now play the apolitical game.
I would say if we get things right at a spiritual level, the politics will follow. It is hard to get the politics right when the majority of our folk are all over the place mentally, physically and spiritually. But we still have to have ideals and work at them.
The physical aspect if forgotten too often.
I lean more into it being ideas plus blood, rather than just blood. Sometimes are worst enemies are from our own race.
I agree that there needs to be more work done on the spiritual front of racialism. Not so say that biology doesn’t matter but too many concentrate on that aspect and it’s not particularly inspiring to boil everything down to haplotypes and IQ tests.
