Ride the Tiger!

Some comments made recently on an American website have given me reason to reflect on the gulf that separates nationalists of all hues with those who who are seeking to lay the spiritual seeds of a folkish and spiritual renewal in the English-speaking world. One commentator in particular had this to say:

"I’ve used that excellent passage from Mein Kampf to debunk the esotericists and neo-pagans before. The “wandering scholars” he refers to were Thule-Gesellschaft type individuals, or as a contemporary example people such as “Wotans Krieger” who runs the Aryan-Myth-and-Metahistory blog. Wotans Krieger does an excellent job in documenting Aryan prehistory, but he is THE example of such a “wandering scholar” who hides behind ancient stone axes, keeps beard and long hair, raving about ancient Germanic lore and succumbs to passivity or “spiritual warfare” on par with Miguel Serrano’s best works of science fiction. I’m not saying I’m personally better than Wotans Krieger in any way and I’m sorry to put him out here, but I think he is the embodiment of the “wandering scholar”. " (Rein Falk, Daily Stormer)


" "Spiritual warfare" is the excuse of the coward to avoid the heat of reality. Recently on your blog you said:

"One only has to sit back and watch the numerous numbskulls and thugs who participate in street activism to see that many of these nationalists do not accord with the Aryan type that they espouse and idolise."

Which might be true, at least in Britain. But at least such "thugs" have enough manly qualities to get out there, face open in the real world, and potentially give up all their social comforts to be stigmatised and shunned from society, never mind the physical injuries such activism might lead to. I don't think you are in any position to judge at all, Wotans Krieger, because as you say, all you do is "sit back and watch". Do you think practising runic yoga while you await the mysterious and much awaited "Black Sun" to awaken our racial consciousness warrants you the name of a WARRIOR? No, Wotans Krieger, war is exclusive to physical reality. War, or struggle, is a law of Nature that requires bloodshed from the warring parties. There is no such thing as "spiritual warfare". "Do nothing and ride your tiger" if you want, but leave war for those capable and willing to wage it." (Rein Falk, Daily Stormer)

It truly beggars belief and I have no idea what sort of "war" this commentator has in mind but bearing in mind the fact that every word written on an American website in the "land of the free" is monitored by the NSA I would recommend that such people reign in their verbal machismo just a tad!

Nationalism, whether it be of the "ethno" or "civic" variety is doomed to fail without clear aims and goals. Marching in the street, screaming insults and exchanging blows with opponents as one has seen in recent years in England achieves nothing apart from a custodial sentence and checks placed upon one's liberty after release from prison. The forces that control the masses are too strong for us as individuals or even as a collective to counter. What we have to understand is that within these dark forces they contain the seed of their own destruction. This is the one great lesson of history. If we try to resist we are effectively"men against time". The Last Man Against Time failed in his mission because the time was not right. He was not the Last Avatar but the forerunner and the forerunner, the prophet always appears to fail in his mission and perish although there is a reason and a necessity for his appearance. This is why it essential that we WAIT. He who is to come will come but in HIS time, not ours. Thus we must prepare the way and this is done through education , not violence which ultimately achieves nothing.

Sadly those who lack a spiritual foundation have no real Weltanschauung. They are driven by negative forces: hatred and anger which will onsume and destroy them and not their opponents. Such people feel instinctively that something is wrong with the world but seek answers and solutions that are materialist in nature. There is no grand vision and yet they feel that they must DO something! 

"When a cycle of civilization is reaching its end, it is difficult to achieve anything by resisting it and by directly opposing the forces in motion. The current is too strong; one would be overwhelmed. The essential thing is not to let oneself be impressed by the omnipotence and apparent triumph of the forces of the epoch. These forces, devoid of connection with any higher principle, are in fact on a short chain. One should not become fixated on the present and on things at hand, but keep in view the conditions that may come about in the future. Thus the principle to follow could be that of letting the forces and processes of this epoch take their own course, while keeping oneself firm and ready to intervene when 'the tiger, which cannot leap on the person riding it, is tired of running,' The Christian injunction 'Resist not evil' may have a similar meaning, if taken in a very particular way. One abandons direct action and retreats to a more internal position." (Ride the Tiger. A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul, Julius Evola)

Why Short Hair is not Acceptable for Germanic Women

Short hair in either women or men is not a Germanic characteristic. I have already passed comment on how short hair in modern Germanic society is a remnant of the forced xtian conversion of the Germanic peoples when long hair on men was viewed as barbaric and heathen. Today some people (not just older ones) view long hair on men as shameful or unfashionable. Neither of these view points have any merit and are merely the result of a reflex psychological reaction due to 1,500 years of xtianity in Anglo-Saxon society and the whimsical trends of money driven fashion. The same prejudice is to be found against facial hair. The beard has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity recently but by and large these are not real and manly beards but little more than designer stubble for metrosexual 'man'.

This prejudice against long hair continues in the military although there have been exceptions to this such as in the German Bundeswehr between 1971-1972 when long hair was for a while permitted to reflect the changing times. This further validates my assertions in the past that the modern soldier is an entirely different concept from the ancient Germanic warrior who did not require a uniform or all this silly marching on asphalt. It is ironic that the terrorists which ZOG's soldiers fight do very well without the need for uniforms, short hair or parade ground drill. What animates them instead is an ideology, islam which is ultimately a more powerful motivating factor than the vanities which drive the modern democratic soldier. The Waffen SS wore uniforms of course and were a disciplined organisation but what set them apart from the Wehrmacht was the fact that they were ideologically driven by National Socialism and the call of the blood. They did not have the same restrictions placed upon them whilst in the field of combat as the Wehrmacht and were encouraged to think for themselves and to assume the responsibilities of the rank above them when required.

I would now like to turn my attention to the troubling issue of short hair amongst Germanic women. One often notices that women in their 40s and 50s start to cut their hair short, losing whatever femininity they have left to the extent that they begin to resemble men. No doubt this is all connected with the insidious pressures exerted by the femininist movement who would seek an entire reversal of roles with men taking on the domestic role whilst they outmen the men in their relentless climb up their slippery corporate ladders to seek the psychological validation that they are told by the media that they need and lack.

Young women often can get away with short hair if they are attractive but when they begin to age they too will appear more masculine in appearance. Long hair enables a woman to maintain her femininity into old age. The typical styles that a modern Germanic woman can adopt may be found in images of women and girls from the Third Reich who were encouraged to adopt traditional styles.

Let us not forget that the ancients believed that hair contained certain magical and sacral properties. Women in particular were viewed as being closer to the spiritual and the unseen in prextian Germanic society. Tacitus referred to this belief in Germania 8.2:

"Not only that, they even think that there is in them some holy and prophetic force, and they neither scorn their advice nor ignore their utterances. In the days of the Divine Vespasian we saw how Veleda was long esteemed by many as a supernatural power, and they have in the past revered Aurinia also, and many others: not like sycophants, though, making them gods." (Rives translation)

"More than this, they believe that there resides in women an element of holiness and a gift of prophecy; and so they do not scorn to ask their advice, or lightly disregard their replies. In the reign of the emperor Vespasian we saw Veleda long honoured by many Germans as a divinity; and even earlier they showed reverence for Aurinia and a number of others-a reverance untainted by servile flattery or any pretence of turning women into goddesses." (Mattingly & Handford)

I believe that long hair enhances our 5 known senses and also it acts as antennae for receiving spiritual and psychic impulses. I am thinking in particular of the Vrilerinnen of the Vril Gesellschaft, the mystical counterpart to the Thule Gesellschaft and originally called the  Alldeutsche Gesellschaft für Metaphysik (Pan-German Society for Metaphysics), led by the half Croation and half Austro-German medium Maria Orsitsch or Orsic. Maria was born in Wien in 1895 and mysteriously disappeared after the war finished in 1945. Maria and the other mediums of the Vril Society were known for their long hair, often tied back in a pony tail, unusual for the time.

Why Short Hair is not a Germanic Characteristic.

First of all I wish to state that the intention of this article is not to cause offence amongst people whose opinions I respect but it is an issue that merits discussion.

Over recent years I have given some thought to the issue of hair and what it means to us as Aryan men and women. Although I have pondered writing on this subject for some time, recent comments by Shaman and Serpent Slayer on my article A Higher Spiritual Concept of the Aryan Race have prompted me to discuss this matter now.

As human beings we have over thousands of years evolved a mechanism of judging overs by appearance. This is a survival mechanism which is nearly as important these days as it was millenia ago. Certainly in the past those first few seconds of almost instinctive and gut reaction analysis of another person's motives meant the difference between life and death. So when we are told not to judge others by appearance we are asked to perform an almost impossible act, an act that comes as natural to us as breathing.

Since the 1980s those who follow a nationalist or right wing form of politics have had a tendency to shave their heads, adopting a variation of the Skinhead culture which has its origins in the late 1960s and reggae music.
Skinheads developed from the mid 1960s Mod youth culture and represent a fusion of Mod and Jamaican Rude Boy cultures. It is a matter of fact that many Skinheads in the late 1960s/early 1970s were negroes and some of these were ardent Black Nationalists. So it is a mistake to assume that a shaven or closely cropped hairstyle somehow represents or should represent a nationalist or racialist Weltanschauung: frequently it does not. In fact shaven heads and closely cropped hairstyles are to be found increasingly amongst negro, asian and mixed-race people so it is now time for us to reassess whether this is a look that we should associate ourselves with.

As folkish people we should consider ourselves as rebels against the New World Order and all that it represents. What we must avoid doing is conforming to a Hollywood stereotype which has been imposed upon us by our enemies. Short hair was something that was gradually imposed by the christian church upon our ancestors as long hair on men was considered to be a sign of barbarity and heathenism. Christian clerics were forbidden to grow their hair long and had to conform to what was originally a Roman stereotype.

Even after the forced conversion of our ancestors many kings and nobles still retained long hair and this is where we get the expression the long haired kings which is usually a reference to the Frankish Merovingian dynasty who retained their long hair even after it was no longer the norm. The ancients believed that sacral power resided in the hair so for a Frankish king to be tonsured like a monk was to effectively rob the king of his sacral and magical power as well as his royal authority.

In Germanic society long hair on men was the norm and the exception to this were the slaves. So I have to ask the question why would anyone who considers themselves to be folkish wish to adopt a hairstyle that has its origins in Rome and the christian church? I realise however that many people have not given this any thought until now but this has not stopped these very same people from pressurising others to conform to their unhistorical expectations.

By returning to the long hair of our prechristian ancestors we are making a statement against the post-christian society in which we find ourselves. It is an external gesture of course but the external is a representation of the internal. As Teutons we can differentiate ourselves from the alien hordes that surround us by our hair for hair colour and texture is an inherited racial characteristic so why shave off what our ancestors have bequeathed to us?

Serpent Slayer says it best:

"On the subject of skinheads, why shave off your hair?
As Aryans we are gifted with light soft hair in all shades, capable of growing it long, we can knot it, braid it, tie it all kinds of things. The whole skinhead thing was came from outlanders, instead would it not be better to adopt the Suebian knot, or the braided hair of the last true warriors of Odin?"
On the issue of female hairstyles I will possibly discuss this in a future article.

Hitler, the Reborn Sigurd?

In the appendix to the Asatru Edda the Norroena Society include a text  titled Hugrunar which has an uncertain origin and its antiquity is in doubt but never the less it has been included for interest. In section 56 of this work there is a very curious reference to a reborn Sigurd:

"Runar shall you speak man to man and woman to woman, shall whisper true to grandson brave. Turn to the heath and know it, for beyond this time, Sigurd shall rebirth to us, yet many his dragons and fierce then, say the gydja. Slay he or be slain, the sons of his warriors shall set to the shaven wood again our way. Until then speak it to moon, to heath, to hidden men in places remote. Speak to star and perfect every word where naught hear but whose mind blend with mind. In this time shall speak it oft and truly that in far time it be little changed before it come to birch again."

It is my opinion that this reborn Sigurd was none other than Adolf Hitler. Like Sigurd he was stabbed in the back but faithfully fulfilled his mission as the Norns decreed. He had many dragons, many enemies who sought to slay him and his Volk. Indeed German war time propaganda did use the image of the slaying of the dragon as symbolic of National Socialism's war of attrition against bolshevism. He knew he had to slay for failure to do so would have resulted in the destruction of the Aryo-Germanic peoples.

Likewise Thunor at Ragnarok will go forth to slay the serpent at the end time although He Himself will be slain by its venom. Neverthless He will continue to live through His sons Magni and Modi.
