Barbarossa, Son of the 'One-Eyed'




With the christianisation of Northern Europe our ancient deities were generally demonised, most especially *Thunaraz and *Wodanaz, more than likely due to their popularity and pre-eminence amongst our peoples. However our deities are deeply engrained in the Blood Memory of our folk and cannot be extinguished but have a way of re-emerging as Jung in his famous 1936 essay Wotan articulated so well. Hitler was by no means the first historical personality to be equated with Wotan.

Many of my readers will be familiar with the legend of the great German Emperor Friedrich I (1122-1190), better known by his nickname (most Kings and prominent nobles had one!) Barbarossa (red beard). Barbarossa is said to be 'sleeping' with his knights and squires in a cave in the Kyffhäuser mountain range in the modern German states of Sachsen-Anhalt (Saxony-Anhalt) and Thüringen (Thuringia). Barbarossa was officially the Holy Roman Emperor as well as King of Germany, King of Italy and King of Burgundy. He was a member of the Hohenstaufen dynasty of German Kings (1138-1254). The dynasty takes its name from the high 'Staufen' or hill of a conical shape situated in the Swabian Riesgau. So interestingly we have this association with mountains or hills early on in the history of the Hohenstaufen dynasty. Our Gods, especially *Wodanaz and *Thunaraz have long been associated with mountains or hills as do the Baltic, Slavic and Finno-Ugric equivalents to *Thunaraz.

Barbarossa and the German princes were noted for their waging of war against the Slavs and the extension of the boundaries of Germany to the east. Not surprisingly Germany gave the name of Barbarossa to their invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941! There are various Odinic associations with Barbarossa. Firstly we have the myth of him resting in the Kyffhäuser. Mountains as I have said are closely associated with our Gods. Although in reality Barbarossa died whilst crossing the river Saleph in Armenia during the Third Crusade and his body interred in the Church of St Peter in Antioch never the less his subjects refused to believe that this great Emperor could possibly be dead and hence the legend arose of him resting in the Kyffhäuser. There are parallels between this legend and similar ones regarding Charlemagne, Heinrich the Fowler and the totally mythical 'King Arthur'. The legend relates how Barbarossa's beard has encircled a table at which he sits, twice. Periodically he will send out one of his squires to check if the "ravens are still circling the mountain". When the ravens have ceased flying or when his beard has encircled the table three times then Barbarossa will awaken finally from his sleep and arise as Germany's saviour in her time of greatest need (as with the King Arthur legend and Britain). The raven as most people will know is the creature which is most closely associated with *Wodanaz

"That Frederick and all the rest of the caverned princes and warriors are no other than Woden and his wild host, is clear from many details of the legends concerning them. People who visit the Emperor in the Kyffhäuser receive just such presents as are given by the wild huntsman,-horses' legs or heads that afterwards turn into gold; and there is a lady in the Kyffhäuser, who is variously called the Princess, the Kaiser's housekeeper, Mademoiselle or Jungfer, and sometimes even Frau Holle (Holda), who is beyond all doubt Woden's wife Fria." ( Curiosities of Indo-European Tradition and Folk-lore by Walter Keating Kelly, 1863)
Another less obvious Odinic association is the fact that Barbarossa was one of the many Kings and Emperors who possessed the Holy Lance by which the side of the supposed 'Christ' was pierced. The lance is closely associated with both the legend of the pure knight Parzival who became the subject of Wagner's final music drama, Parsifal. A much more ancient and heathen association is with Gungnir, the spear of Odin. Germanic Kings and chieftains carried a spear as a symbol of the authority which they derived from *Wodanaz. (See Edred Thorsson's The Mysteries of the Goths) As the legend goes the moment that Barbarossa allowed the lance to slip from his grasp whilst crossing the river he fell from his horse and drowned.

Whist carrying out some research in the last few days I uncovered another Odinic association with Barbarossa and one which hit me like a thunderbolt from *Thunaraz! The father of Barbarossa, Friedrich II, Duke of Swabia (abt  1090-1147) was nicknamed............"the One-Eyed"! During a battle Friedrich II lost an eye and this has been said to have barred him from becoming the German King and instead this office went to his younger brother, Conrad III (1093-1152). Barbarossa inherited the Kingdom from his uncle Conrad. So we have Barbarossa, an avatar of Wotan named as the son of the 'One-Eyed'. As many of my readers will know our High Lord Woden often puts His mark on his most deserving of initiates in the form of either temporary or permanent blindness.

American Odinism and the Dangers of Monotheism

One aspect of Germanic mythology which has always fascinated me is the nature of the relationship between two of our most important deities-*Wodanaz and *Thunaraz. I use here the Proto-Germanic terms out of convenience to embrace the various names that they are now known by today's Germanic nations.

There are various terms which Germanic heathens use to label their religion-Odinism, Wodenism, Wotanism, Asatru, Vanatru, heathenism, paganism etc and often the label which is used has a tendency to define the nature of our beliefs and acts as a comparison towards other branches of the ancient northern religion.

One issue that I have with the terms Odinism, Wodenism, Wotanism is the way in which it gives an almost exclusive primacy to one single deity when the truth and the facts are far more complicated than this. I was prompted to pen this article after reading the profile of notable Odinist Wyatt Kaldenburg on 'Twitter'. This is how Mr Kaldenburg defines Odinism:

"I am an American Odinist. Odinism is the belief in Odin as the supreme God who rules over the other Gods and Goddesses of the Germanic peoples."
I am a little troubled by this definition as it suggests almost (but not quite) a form of heathen monotheism and monotheism is a way of looking at spirituality and religion which I utterly reject. I do not and never have obtained the impression from the many years that I have studied the history of Germanic heathenism  that "Odin" (is) "the supreme God who rules over the other Gods and Goddesses of the Germanic peoples." This almost equates Germanic heathenism with classical Greek and Roman paganism where one powerful deity-Zeus/Jupiter is said to rule over all other deities almost as if the other Gods and Goddesses were mere appendages or perhaps hypostases of the one 'chief' deity. It almost has the feel of the semitic Jehovah/Allah, a supposedly 'supreme' being who rules over an angelic hierarchy.

This causes me to ask the question are we who live in this post-Christian age somehow remodelling our ancient religion upon a semitic paradigm, albeit unconsciously? Are we still victims of an ingrained and centuries long pattern of viewing religion, that we are merely substituting one supreme deity-in this case Odin for another 'supreme' deity-Jehovah/Allah?

My study of the Eddas does not lead me to the conclusion that *Wodanaz should be viewed in the way that many (American) Odinists view Him, as a Germanic subsititute for the Christian 'god'. The tendency to view Him in this way does appear to be a particularly American one and I cannot but help compare this development with what I have many years ago termed the Pilgrim Fathers' Complex

Although the USA is technically a secular nation where state and religion are separate (unlike the United Kingdom) it is still a deeply religious one and this is mainly due to the strongly held Christian convictions of many of the country's founders. Even in 'white nationalist' circles many who are supposedly racialist and even vehemently racist (I apply a qualitative difference to these two apparently similar terms) still cling to their childhood semitic fairytales, failing to see the obvious contradiction and dichotomy in worshiping a jewish anti-god. Many attempt to reconcile this mental aberration by following the religion of Christian Identity creating even more mental and spiritual confusion. Many view Christ as non-Jewish, even Aryan and the Aryan peoples as the 'Hebrews'. Christian Identity is a modern American version of 19th century British Israelism.

*Wodanaz is of course a primary deity as is clear not only from the Eddas and traces of His cult in the place names of England and Germanic Europe but He should not be viewed as those who view Zeus sitting upon Mount Olympus treating mortals as pieces in a chess game! The reality of *Wodanaz is very very different. He is a God of mystery, of the hidden, the arcane, the unknown. He is a seeker of knowledge and wisdom and delights in many things whether it be poetry, communing with the dead or welcoming heroes into Walhalla but He is not imperious in the sense of Zeus or Jupiter. Indeed He does not even correlate to these classical deities. The nearest counterpart is of course *Thunaraz who originally was the leading deity in the North until the mysterious appearance of the later cult of *Wodanaz.

In some ways these two Germanic Gods are quite similar. They are both deities related to the elements, storm deities if you will but they also have clear differences. *Thunaraz is a God of tremendous power, electrical power as He demonstrates in the flash of lightning and the thunder bolt. He is both a defensive deity and a God of war as is *Wodanaz of course and *Tiwaz. He is a God who cares for His followers and one in which I invoke several times a day. *Wodanaz of course inspires us to uncover that which is hidden, that we seek wisdom and become like him-that we emulate Him. However we must be careful if we ask anything of this deity as He has (in my experience) a tendency to play games and tricks upon us but this is always in order to teach us an important lesson about ourselves.

*Wodanaz seems to be a latecomer to the North and His cult appears to have originated with the Saxons or at least they popularised His cult and brought it further north where *Thunaraz still had primacy. Indeed *Thunaraz retained the loyalty of His followers even following the Christianisation of Scandinavia as many of the sagas indicate.

The Hárbarðsljóð in the Poetic or Elder Edda reveals an apparent conflict or tension between *Wodanaz and * Thunaraz. This tension reveals itself in a contest of 'flyting' or a verbal contest between the two and I believe this to be a poetic reminder of the apparent competition and rivalry between the older and more established cult of *Thunaraz and the more recent one of *Wodanaz.

Rather than view our religion as a heathen form of monotheism as American Odinism has a tendency to do we must learn about the qualities and characteristics of all of our Germanic Gods and it may be that we as individuals are drawn to one or two specific deities and there is nothing of course wrong with this but we must not attempt to build a monotheistic structure out of a clearly polytheistic worldview.

'White Sharia'-a Personal View

The latest nutty concept which has gained a foothold in the 'white nationalist' world is that of 'white sharia'! Yes you have read that correctly. The advocates of this concept are trying to push the idea that women, Aryan women that is are in need of 'saving' from themselves and must be forced into a form of subjugation by their men folk and they would have no choice in the matter.

One may ask what on earth has sharia to do with the cultures of the Aryan peoples, given that it is an aspect of islam? Good question and the answer is: nothing! The supporters of the concept claim that even sharia itself is an Aryan concept because the word can be found in Urdu and Persian and because these are Indo-European languages the concept therefore must be Indo-European! This is patent simplistic nonsense as the Urdu and Persian equivalent words are simply a translation of the original term in Arabic! It has been referred to as an Indo-Aryan form of conduct! The reason why sharia was practised by the Persians and Indians is because it was forced upon them by fanatical Islamic Arabs. It is most certainly not an Aryan concept and has nothing whatsoever to do with Aryan conduct, spirituality or religion.

The supporters of 'white sharia' refer to this concept as a 'meme', a term that currently is quite popular within 'white nationalism' along with other ridiculous terms such as 'red pilling' and 'blue pilling' which I have never even heard of before. I am reliably informed that these are fabricated terms that feature in a well known science fiction film from 1999, The Matrix. I cannot comment as I have never seen the film in question. This is however an indication of how low the 'white nationalist' movement has come with its adoption of Hollywood terminology.

It is hoped that this 'meme' will spread within the white world. This is not however a good thing. Disease also spreads in populations and that is not a good thing either! Incredibly many of the supporters of 'white sharia' are also fanatical racialist 'christians'. I have never understood how a racialist can possibly be a christian given that anti-semitism is often a feature of the world view of many 'white nationalists' and christianity was built upon judaism as was islam but I put this down to what I term the Pilgrim Fathers' Complex. http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/usa-israel-and-pilgrim-fathers-complex.html 

'White nationalism' is a concept which originated in the USA. It is a movement with no clear ideology, Weltanschauung or agreed aims and goals. It tends to be dominated by racialist christians and christian identity types who are often very hostile towards people who do not subscribe to their distorted version of christianity. It becomes extremely difficult to find much in the way of common ground with many of them. The emphasis on the term 'white' is clearly American rather than European as we tend to use different terminology to describe or define race over here as there are many peoples who can be termed 'white' but are not Europoid or European in origin, such as semites for instance and this is why I tend to avoid use of this term.

Going back to the subject of this article, I find it incredible that white nationalists who are generally supporters of christianity should use an islamic term to describe and define a concept. They see no apparent contradiction in this and become hostile when it is pointed out to them, using typical playground insults such as 'cuck' (a very fashionable term of abuse at the moment), 'faggot', 'beta', 'autistic' (a new and fashionable insult) 'commie', 'jew' etc, etc. Reasoned argument becomes impossible due to their inflexible minds and entrenched views. Some supporters of 'white sharia' openly suggest that women who do not conform should be given a 'slap'. Women are viewed as little more than brood mares and should be encouraged to breed as early as possible. Some but not all supporters suggest that this should be at the onset of puberty. Photographs of 1950s women wearing head scarves or eastern European women in traditional costume are produced as 'evidence' that white women have always practised sharia and that it has only been in modern times that this has fallen away with the impact of liberalism! Yes, that is what they appear to believe, as ridiculous as it may seem! Whether they truly believe this rubbish is another matter. They may simply be repeating this in order for the idea to become instilled in other people without it being questioned-a common tactic.

What is most disturbing about 'white sharia' apart from the denigration of women who are (all) described as 'inferior', 'degenerate' and 'whores' by some sharia advocates is the way in which white Americans are becoming culturally subjugated to the customs or perceived customs of fanatical islam. This is a sign that islam is a now seen to be a conquering spiritual force in the 'west' and some whites feel the need to appropriate aspects of its language and culture for their own ends. This is usually how a conquered and subjugated people behave not a race of Sonnenmenschen!

I am no friend of feminism which I regard as a spiritual cancer in the 'western' world but 'white sharia' is an extreme reaction which makes it no better than feminism. It is its male counterpart and in many ways it is far worse than feminism. Both feminism and 'white sharia' are divisive and do not unite males and females but put a wedge between them. This is why I have written this article today to point out the dangers of this pernicious concept to alert my readers to think very carefully before they swallow this 'pill'.

Supporters of 'white sharia' say that a choice will be presented to the white world: islamic sharia or 'white sharia'-the only choice that is but I would counter this and say that the real choice is between WALHALLA and ALLAHLAW. 'White sharia' seems to fit very snugly into ALLAHLAW!

Along the Wodenist Path: The Memoirs of Wulf Ingessunu-a Review

For some years now I wondered if a biography would eventually be written and published of the life of Wulf Ingessunu, the founder of folkish Wodenism in the late 20th century. Through the good work of Troy Southgate that book is now here and it is an autobiography, the life story being told by Wulf himself in an engaging and often humorous style. As one reads his words one hears his voice also as it is written in such a natural style.This is the latest work in the canon of Woden's Folk writings and in my opinion a highly important one. Up until now we have had the teachings of Woden's Folk. Vital as they are it is almost as important to know something of the life of the founder of a religion or a movement as well and this latest work fulfils that need.
In this book we learn of Wulf's early life, his experiences within party politics, his rejection of political parties and then his spiritual awakening leading him into Odinism and then Wodenism, an English form of Odinism which is folkish in nature and looks not only to the past where its roots are but to the future of Germanic man, recognising that Woden speaks to His initiates today, not just in the Eddas, sacred though they are to us.
Wulf relates many of his most important mystical experiences and it is clear that his life thus far has been that of living the Woden archetype.
I would encourage not only Wodenists, Odinists and Germanic heathens to purchase and read this work but also those who have misrepresented our work and mission so that they can see for themselves that this is the story of an ordinary man with an extraordinary life.

A Dream of the Ancestors and the Mask of Odin-an Update

Last night, quite unusual for me I dreamed almost constantly, waking up, going back to sleep and dreaming again, one after the other, even dreams within dreams. Shortly before waking I had a dream which involved me talking to a dead ancestor. It was impressed upon me that this was a great grandfather. The ancestor did not reveal to me his name but I was trying to work out who he was by the process of mental deduction. The name of the person which was impressed upon me however was that of a great great grandfather so it is possible that the term 'great grandfather' in the dream was not to be taken literally. It was evident to me in the dream that he was dead but yet he appeared alive just as you and I are and his cosy cottage was situated (in the dream) just a few houses away from me so I was conscious that he was always close by. I do not recall what we talked about but he made himself known to me.

It does not surprise me that I dreamed about an ancestor as I have been engaged in researching my ancestry which I am sure will become a life long project! It is also not unusual for the dead to appear in our dreams for the ancients considered that in the dream state, especially before waking we are more receptive to the spirits of the dead and can communicate with them as we do with the living. Frequently the shades of departed relatives appear to me in dreams and I am very conscious that they are dead. On occasions I have had dreams in which people who I am not aware have passed on reveal themselves to me to tell me the news! This was the case with my half sister in Germany who passed on a few years ago.

Immediately after leaving my ancestor's cottage I encountered another dead person, this time my daughter's maternal great grandfather. I asked him to make an engraving on a piece of wood for me, just a bare outline as I knew that he had good practical skills. When he came back, to my surprise I found that he had completed the entire job for me, not just the outline and it turned out to be a carving of a mask of Odin! At this point I awoke. I am not sure what this all means and I am still processing the information but I will edit or add to this article on an ongoing basis. Any interpretations from my readers would be welcome.

UPDATE

I am grateful to Steed for his helpful comment. Since publishing this short article I was driven by a sudden and restless need to research my partner's paternal ancestry, joining it to my own published tree which is a lifetime work in progress!  Her maternal ancestry has already been researched with a line of ancestry leading back to the Volsungs and Odin Himself. I started by exploring her paternal grandmother's ancestry and over several long nights I managed to go back a few generations. The use of census returns can be very helpful in identifying families that you are related to or descended from and can help to confirm an ancestor's identity but the earliest ones available for England and Wales only reach back to the year 1841, the most recent being 1911. They do however contain an absolute wealth of detail in one single document. Civil registration of births, marriages and deaths only started in 1837. Prior to this date you have to rely upon parish records, not all of which have been digitalised. I am fortunate in that my paternal grandmother's ancestry is rooted in North Meols, Lancashire where parish records are freely available online and I am also indebted to the many Wills left by my ancestors from centuries ago as they too are very useful. After reaching a temporary brick wall with her paternal grandmother's ancestry I turned my attention to her paternal grandfather, researching both his paternal and maternal lines and I was surprised to see that his mother's maternal ancestry has already been well researched and I managed to find a line going back to Alfred of Wessex who as we know was a descendant of Woden Himself!

So here we have the crux of the matter and the reason for her grandfather appearing in the dream (alongside my own ancestor) presenting me with a mask of Odin/Woden. This can be no coincidence but demonstrates to us that human consciousness does in fact survive physical death. In the fluid dream state we can encounter the spirits of the 'dead' and other entities, even deities for our conscious critical analytical mind is put to sleep, no longer able to fulfil its 'gatekeeper' role until we are fully awake. Dreams experienced directly before waking linger in the mind longer and are rarely forgotten unlike the ones that we have but cannot recall from the middle of the night. This is what is called the hypnopompic state. Its opposite is the hypnogogic state. I am reminded here that our High Lord Woden is the great psychopomp. He is the great guide of souls between life and death but He has the ability to travel between other worlds and make Himself known even in physical human form. He is the director of dreams and the alterer of consciousness. Often I will ask Woden to guide my dreams using this short invocation formulated by Edred Thorsson:

"Into the well of sleep Oh Woden I wend my way to thee, to learn thy ways and wonders."

I believe it is to be found in The Nine Doors of Midgard but I can't be certain about this! It is a good habit to get into. As I have written before, prayers or invocations are not the preserve of the Abrahamic religions. Before retiring to bed on a night I ask for Thunor's blessing and protection on my household and again this is a good habit to adopt.

The link between the mask of Woden and the grandfather's ancestry is now clear although there are other interpretations, one of which was suggested by Steed. Now I have not yet had the opportunity to analyse this other researcher's findings-it was simply a discovery I 'stumbled' across but it is interesting that I was presented with the mask in its complete form although I only asked for an outline to be carved. This signifies to me that the work has already been done by others. My task was simply to look for and receive this discovery. Woden reveals Himself to us if we keep an open mind and seek Him.

Reverence for the Gods

Whilst listening to an interesting BBC radio programme today on http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04x9brb regarding the Odinist or Asatru religion in modern day Iceland I was struck by certain comments made by a female practitioner who seems to regards the Gods as being 'equal' to man. This is not the first time that I have encountered this particular perspective and in my opinion it is an inappropriate way to think of our deities.

Many years ago when I was still a xtian I encountered many types of xtians from various denominations and churches and I found that there were two ways in which xtians encountered their god. There was the High Church approach in the Church of England which focussed on ritual and reverence for the xtian god and then at the other end of the spectrum there was the Low Church element which is largely free of ritual and which is also to be found in Non-Conformist denominations. One thing that struck me as rather odd was the practice of some churchgoers, especially the younger ones to actually dress down when going to the 'house of god'; something which I have never understood and at the time considered to be a lack of respect, a lack of awe, a lack of reverence.

One sees this casual approach amongst some heathens today and each time I hear that man is the 'equal to the Gods' I feel rather uneasy about such a statement. If we are the 'equal' of the Gods then why do we worship or honour them? Some would say that the Gods should be viewed in the same way as we view human parents and to a certain extent I understand and in part agree with this sentiment and statement. However the way in which children relate to their parents today in the 'western' world is not a traditional one and is often lacking in respect. Many former xtians, particularly the younger ones take this attitude into heathenism and are quite casual in how they approach the Gods. If we are to expect a great heathen revival then we must examine how we view the Gods that we say that we honour or worship. By the way there is nothing at all wrong with worshipping the Gods. Prayer and worship are not confined to or restricted to the alien Abrahamic religions.

A genuine heathen perspective of the Gods must be rooted in how our ancestors related to them. We may have changed but the Gods have not! One particular clue is to be found in Tacitus' Germania:

"As for gods, Mercury is the one they worship most, and on certain days they think it right to propitiate him with human victims. Hercules and Mars they appease with lawful animals." (9.1, translation by J.B. Rives)

So as my readers can see the worship of the Gods was not a casual affair but something which was taken seriously and in great earnest. There was a desire to please the Gods and sacrifice was seen as a way of doing this. I would like to point out that I am not advocating this practice today although it may be something which is taken up again once the decaying 'New World Order' is finally brought to its knees. What else can we learn from the above passage? Well Mercury who the Romans equated with Woden/Wodan/Wotan "is the one they worship most". This is as it should be for He is THE High Lord of the Teutons. Hercules (Thunor/Thunar/Donar) and Mars (Tiw) were also worshipped but in this case with animals rather than humans. One may speculate here how men were offered to Woden but it seems clear to me that this was by hanging and often this was done at a crossroads. Odin was known as Hangatyr and Hangagud, the God of the hanged. Woden would come and commune with the dead and dying. He like Mercury is the great psychopomp, the conveyor of human souls to the afterlife.

Some may baulk at the concept of human sacrifice but I think this is more to do with the lingering effects of the xtian religion which created the concept of 'sin' and its bedmate 'guilt'. We see this today with the modern religion of the 'holocaust' and the very profitable industry centred around it. Another translation of Germania 9 puts across what I am trying to say more clearly:

"Above all other gods they worship Mercury, and count it no sin, on certain feast-days, to include human victims in the sacrifices offered to him. Hercules and Mars they appease by offerings of animals, in accordance with ordinary civilized custom." (Translation by H. Mattingley and revised by S.A. Handford)

The Germanic tribe which Germania 9 is discussing are the Suebi. This tribe is referred to later on in Germania 39.1:

"The Semnones relate that they are the oldest and noblest of the Suebi. Confidence in their antiquity is confirmed by their cult. At a set time, the peoples who share that name and bloodline send embassies to assemble in a forest hallowed by ancestral auguries and ancient dread, and by slaying a man on behalf of the people they begin the barbaric celebration of their fearful rites." (Rives)
"The oldest and most famous of the Suebi; it is said, are the Semnones, and their antiquity is confirmed by a religious observance. At a set time, deputations from all the tribes of the same stock gather in a grove hallowed by the auguries of their ancestors and by immemorial awe. The sacrifice of a human victim in the name of all marks the grisly opening of their savage ritual." (Mattingley/Handford)
The above passage is quite illuminating. Once again we encounter the reference to human sacrifice but notice here the emotions that are engendered by the Semnones: "ancient dread" and "immemorial awe". The Gods are not to be approached lightly and certainly not as 'equals' for they embody great elemental forces, particularly Woden and Thunor and thus this in itself must demand a certain respect.

There is a great deal of speculation as to who the main deity of the Semnones alluded to in Germania is:
"They revere this grove in other ways too: no one enters unless bound by a shackle, as an inferior who makes manifest the might of the divine. If by chance he stumbles, it is not lawful to lift himself up and rise: they roll out over the ground. On that place their entire superstition is centred, as though from there the tribe has its origin, as though there the god is ruler of all, and the remainder subordinate and submissive." (39.2, Rives)

"Bound by a shackle" or as the earlier Mattingley translation puts it, "bound with a cord". That sounds to me like the noose of the hanged, the torc worn by the Woden initiates!

"Another observance shows their reverence for this grove. No one may enter it unless he is bound with a cord, by which he acknowledges his own inferiority and the power of the deity. Should he chance to fall, he may not raise himself or get up again, but must roll out over the ground. The grove is the centre of their whole religion. It is regarded as the cradle of the race and the dwelling-place of the supreme god to whom all things are subject and obedient." (Mattingley translation)

"Reverence for this grove". This is the right frame of mind in which we must approach the Gods. Indeed unlike the woman speaking in the BBC documentary our ancestors did not believe themselves to be 'equal' to the Gods: quite the contrary! "By which he acknowledges his own inferiority and the power of the deity." We may be children of All Father; we may even trace our lineage back to Him but we are not Gods. The most that we can aim to become is a God-Man but we are still separate from the Gods and owe our existence to them along with all that we have and are. The adjectives that are relevant in the above passage are "subordinate", "submissive", "subject" and "obedient". These are not popular words in 21st century England which is plagued by the concepts of equality and torments itself over racial equality, gender equality and rights for homosexuals. Our ancestors did not focus on 'rights' but duty, honour and loyalty without which a folk cannot exist.

My readers will note something else very important that Tacitus writes in Germania 9: " At a set time, deputations from all the tribes of the same stock gather in a grove" or "At a set time, the peoples who share that name and bloodline send embassies to assemble in a forest". Our religion was NEVER universalist. It was always a religion of Blut und Boden or blood and soil and the universalists would do well to ponder that historical fact!

One may ask what is the difference in this attitude and that of the Abrahamic religions which focus on submission to their god? The difference is not so much in attitude but how we come to the Gods to begin with. All forms of Germanic heathenism stress that we do not seek to 'convert' others and certainly never by force unlike the desert religions. THIS is the key difference but I see no reason why we should accord less honour to the deities of our folk and race than the monotheists grant to their alien and universalist god. The Gods should not be viewed just as archetypes but as very real spiritual entities by which we are bound by our very existence. As a folk we cannot survive without them for they are our life source but they too need us for we are reminded of the expression "every race has its soul and every soul its race".

The Survival of the Germanic Caste System in Late Mediaeval Rural England

One subject which I keep returning to on this blog and on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog is that of the ancient Germanic caste system which survived in a debased form down to the late Middle Ages in England but certainly has its roots in deep Aryan antiquity. I am and always have been fascinated by the past and recently this has extended to the almost addictive subjects of genealogy and genetics. As I have indicated before on this blog shortly after retiring I took up the hobby of genealogy and was most fortunate in finding that my paternal grandmother's ancestry was already well researched as it is rooted in the old farming communities of North Meols in Lancashire for hundred of years. Parish records for this area are fairly well transcribed and freely available online and many of my ancestors even in the 1400s-1600s had published wills which aids in the research. Quite a few of them are referred to in local history books.

Whilst studying and engaging in genealogy it becomes apparent that the caste system in a debased form certainly in the rural areas of England survived long after it disappeared in the emerging towns and cities of the Industrial Revolution. As my readers will be aware tradition lingers far longer in the villages and smaller country towns of England than in the larger towns and cities which became a chaos of peoples. We see this to an extreme extent in the cesspits and hell holes of cities such as London and Birmingham where a plethora of languages are spoken and the native English are a minority or are fast becoming one. This is thankfully not reflected in the villages and rural towns although the political enemies of the people would have it be otherwise!

The Germanic caste system of Jarl, Karl and Thrall is still evident in rural England in the 1400s-1700s. Most of my grandmother's ancestors were farmers, some yeomen, some husbandmen although the distinction between yeomen and husbandmen disappeared by the beginning of the 19th century where both classes were described as farmers, an indication of the final breakdown of the caste system and the spread of the Industrial Revolution which destroyed the old Germanic world. The descriptor of yeoman is found in the Last Will and Testaments of many of my ancestors. Some of the earlier Wills were written in very flowery language with many references to Jesus Christ and the Resurrection! Such language quickly became phased out and replaced by more legally acceptable terminology as time advanced but nevertheless makes for fascinating reading!

In rural England we see four main categories of social position-the gentleman, the yeoman, the husbandman and the labourer. These categories were not rigid and there was intermarriage between the daughters and younger sons of the gentry and the more wealthy yeomen as there was between the more wealthy husbandmen and the yeomanry. So individuals over several generations could rise and fall between these classes or castes until the beginnings of the Industrial revolution and the emerging capitalist mercantile classes. Indeed I was able to trace a line of decent from the gentry to the yeomanry in the 17th century and thus I was able to take my ancestry back to the 12th century and further back still. We are then reliant upon historical chronicles, many of which are full of contradictions. History if you go far enough back merges into legend and then back into myth which makes the subject even more fascinating and compelling!

What is clear to me is that the Germanic caste system survived the brutal onslaught of xtianity but it was the industrial age which finally sounded its death knell which should come as no surprise to us as this process is continuing to the present day where not only has the caste system has broken down but we are beginning to see the dissolution of the races. Order is giving way to chaos. Light is giving way to darkness but it will not always be so!

Let us now examine the division of late mediaeval rural English society:

Landed Gentry- The gentleman is a landowner who lived entirely from rental income without having to engage in work himself. The gentleman is a step down from the titled aristocrat but often the gentry could trace their ancestry from the nobility via younger sons and daughters. They in essence were the Lords of the Manor. They were part of what is now termed the Upper Class in England. I stress in England as the American class system is based entirely upon income not on occupation and/or breeding as the English one which is a hollow and debased echo of the Germanic caste system.
The wealth of the gentry was greatly depleted by the agricultural depression of the 1870s. The gentry also consisted of esquires and knights and thus equated to the Germanic caste of Jarl.

Yeomanry-The yeoman held less land than the gentleman. He either owned the freehold of the land or was a larger scale leaseholder and employed people to work for him but unlike the gentleman he was a working farmer. He was regarded as being one step down from the gentleman but superior in status to the husbandman although these boundaries were quite fluid. Often the yeoman would have additional responsibilities such as Overseer of the Poor, Constable, Church Warden and Juror. A Juror would serve on juries (as the term suggests!) and would vote for the Knight of the Shire.  I managed to find some of my ancestors who occupied these additional positions. Another position could be that of Bailiff or Bridge Warden. Some of my ancestors in the 1400s were 'guardians of the hedge', from the old surname Heyward which eventually transmuted into Howarth and Howard etc. Wealthier husbandmen could also occupy some of these positions. The yeoman is similar in position to the earlier franklin of the 1100s to 1400s. He was the freeman, neither noble nor serf. As a military class they were positioned after the knight and squire but above the page. The yeoman bridged the gap between the nobility and peasantry and were the middle class of their time. Again I use this term in the English and not the American sense. The etymology of yeoman is interesting and may derive either from the Old English iunge man (young man)  or the Old Frisian gaman, meaning 'rustic' or 'villager'. In ancient times the yeoman was the protector of the nobility, a warrior. The husbandman was a step down from the yeoman but closely associated in function. They were working farmers but had much less land but enough to support a family. However in feudal times the husbandman would have been classed as a serf rather than a freeman so his position is intermediate between the yeomanry and the working labourers. The yeomanry thus equated to the Germanic caste of Karl. However in early times the Yeoman certainly had martial responsibilities.

Labourers-The labourer or cottager was a step below the husbandman and in feudal times was not regarded as being a freeman but a serf, tied legally to the Lord of the Manor. It should be emphasised here that a serf is not a slave. This is a common misconception. He enjoyed many rights and freedoms but as a bonded tenant he needed his master's permission to leave the land. They would have equated to the Germanic caste of Thrall. They were the working class of the day. Again I use the English and not the American definition of the term. The debased and materialist American 'class' system has no basis in the Germanic caste system but is based purely on levels of income and pays no heed to a person's education, occupation, family background or ancestry. Indeed it is possible for an individual in a single lifetime to move up and down this base system! It is very important that I stress this for the ancient Germanic caste system is more to do with function than wealth or income. Indeed it is a reflection of the cosmic order and the tripartite functional division of the Gods.

As I mentioned earlier the Industrial Revolution, a harbinger of global capitalism sounded the death knell of the ancient Germanic caste system and the traditional English rural way of life. This process is continuing to the present day. The Industrial Revolution supposedly brought 'progress' in its wake and the eventual 'emancipation' of women. In reality it enslaved the masses and thrust the woman into the mechanised working place-the factories. Man thus became a wage slave. Undoubtedly this is far worse than the Norman feudal system or the earlier Germanic caste system. Germanic man became uprooted from his natural environment-the rural village. He became cut off from his natural roots, unable to determine who his ancestors were and with it came a loss of identity. This is the curse of the abomination known as the city, the cesspit, the multiracial soup of the 21st century.

With the 'emancipation' of women and the woman's 'right to choose' chaos and family breakdown is rife in modern England. In becoming supposedly 'free' woman has become like man a slave, a slave to the mechanised work place of factory, office and shop. Consequently the following Aryan prophecy was fulfilled:

"Out of the corruption of women proceeds the confusion of castes; out of the confusion of castes proceeds the loss of memory, out of the loss of memory proceeds the loss of understanding, and out of this all evil." (Bhagavad Gita 1:41)

This prophecy is remarkably similar to the following one taken from Table 12, 2nd Chapter, 11 of  the Book of Sajaha:

"Customs will no longer be enforced, but vice will be fashionable. Men will have sexual intercourse with boys and go unpunished; women will no longer want to be women, but will behave like men and go unpunished; people will mix themselves with animals and go unpunished and father bastards. And the bastards of bastards will be countless in the streets of the cities without anyone eradicating them." (Wotans Krieger's translation)

It is remarkable how accurately the Babylonian prophecy predicted the widespread plague of paedophilia, homosexuality, bestiality, feminism and miscegenation which are endemic in cities and larger towns than in more rural towns and villages where tradition still lingers on.


One day we will need to resurrect the ancient Germanic caste system when we have regained control of our land and we will have to start again at the beginning. The caste system is divinely ordained and as followers of the ancient Germanic Gods it is imperative that we seek to restore this system when the time eventually comes.

The Mark of the Beast and the Microchip

The 'Mark of the Beast' is coming and it is coming soon! From April of 2016 the British Government made it compulsory for all dogs to be microchipped to enable easy identification if parted from their owners or at least that is the official version of events. There are now also calls for cats to be microchipped too and one has to wonder what is really behind all of this?

The Book of Revelation whilst discussing the appearance of the 'Beast' or ' Antichrist' makes reference to the following:
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." (Revelation 13: 16-18, AV)
Before this system can be introduced amongst the general human population it is necessary for it to be tested first on animals and for the technology to be evaluated. It is also necessary to soften up the masses so that they do not reject the technology and are persuaded to see its 'benefits'. People have been discussing this issue for a long time, particularly with the advent of computers and the bar code that we find on retail product packaging. More than likely the prophecy of Revelation 13 refers to the microchip which is so tiny that it can be injected under the skin and carry information about every aspect of our lives. Via the Internet everyone would be interconnected and there would be no need for passports, driving licences or bank cards. Even now there is talk of a 'cashless society', one of the biggest threats to our freedom to have emerged in millennia. A cashless society would give both governments and global corporations unprecedented access to our personal details. The Mark of the Beast just takes this one step further and is a means of bringing together all computer systems and databanks into one small chip that can be placed underneath our skin, enabling governments to track our every move and transaction. Those who reject this development will be eyed with suspicion with the well repeated mantra "what have you got to hide?" with privacy no longer being viewed as a very natural human desire and right. The fear of islamic terrorism, a situation which has been deliberately brought about by the New World Order will provide the necessary impetus for governments to advance this agenda. We have already seen the way in which encrypted information is being viewed with hostility and suspicion by governments, using the fear of terrorism as a justification to continue to curtail our basic everyday freedoms. Internet Service Providers are being placed under extreme pressure to co-operate with governments even when there is no real justification for doing so.

A Swedish company, Epicenter has already introduced microchipping for over 100 of its 700 employees. See http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2934241/Swedish-company-implants-microchips-staff.html It must be stressed here that the employees agreed to this and there is no suggestion of compulsion here but how long will it be before this sort of thing becomes common place and is eventually introduced by governments but for more sinister reasons? 

I note that in the following article the Daily Mail (a Conservative Party supporting newspaper) makes the allegation that there is no evidence of "an epidemic of cancer as a result" of microchipping dogs which I find a rather strange thing for them to say and "Microchips are so safe that they are now being used in humans, although rumours about state plans to microchip every citizen are exactly that: just mischievous rumours." How the Daily Mail is qualified to comment on the matter is beyond me and it is clearly acting as a mouthpiece for government propaganda in this case. See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/pets/news-features/10-facts-microchips-dogs/


In view of the efforts that the newspaper is going to to stress how 'harmless' microchipping is I note the following again from the Book of Revelation:

"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grevious sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshiped his image." (Revelation 16: 1-2, AV)

This is most clearly a form of cancer which breaks out upon those who have taken the 'mark' of the Beast which more than likely is the microchip which I have already referred to. As most of the population of the earth or at the very least in the 'developed world' will have accepted the 'mark' then the majority of the human population of the earth will perish which is exactly what will happen at Ragnarok when only a minority of the population will survive but I need to stress here that the cancer epidemic that will be caused by the 'mark' is only one aspect of the events related in the Book of Revelation.

Microchips have a longer history in the USA and various studies carried out on the microchipping of animals suggest that the longer a microchip is stored within an animal the greater the risk of developing cancer. This should be reflected upon as microchipping of dogs in the United Kingdom only goes back 1 year as far as it being a mandatory and thus mass exercise so it impossible for anyone to say that there is no risk. One should also bear in mind that human beings live far longer than most other animals so the risk of cancer developing in human beings will be proportionately greater and is the epidemic which Revelation refers to and warns us about. See http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/implanted-microchips-cause-cancer/

It is quite clear to me that the introduction of the mobile phone was a precursor to acclimatising human beings to carrying around a small piece of advanced technology on their persons, a microchipped device close to their body and we all know that overexposure to mobile phones can be harmful to our health. The microchip will be 'sold' to humans as an extension and development of this technology, meant to be 'helpful' to us and safeguard our 'security'. When governments persuade their populations to surrender some aspect of their liberty it is always on the basis of making us 'safer'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Smart phones ( I do not and never will own one) enable not just governments but all kinds of commercial organisations to track peoples' every movement. The Mark of the Beast will of course include that functionality and can be used to close off the finances of anyone found to be dissenting against the State and all kinds of 'fugitives' will be prevented from even buying food to live. We are already too reliant upon the State and its various institutions. No doubt this has been the long term plan, to make us all reliant for our very existence upon Big Brother, the New World Order, the Beast, whatever you wish to call it.

In addition to potentially causing cancer a microchip which has an electric current activated in it may also cause severe burning to the carrier. This is just one other aspect of the 'grevious sore' referred to in Revelation. At one time it was considered that the branding or the tattooing of the skin with the Mark of the Beast would be the means by which people took the 'mark' and this may indeed be so but with the easy injection of the microchip and the  massive amount of information which it can store it seems more plausible to me that it is the microchip which Revelation is intending here.

Back in 2008 the British Government did consider the microchipping of prisoners but the criticism that this proposal attracted from Probation Officers and civil rights groups caused them to shelve the idea but that won't necessarily prevent the idea from surfacing again.

It is also not beyond the bounds of possibility that the microchip will be used to physically control people and even influence their thoughts. The US Government has spent a lot of time and money on trialling various technologies to control human populations. Once the chip has been perfected I am sure that this will be yet one more aspect of it. Control of actions and thoughts of course are things which branding or tattooing cannot do!

I recommend that my readers also study the attached article which is quite illuminating! See http://rense.com/general17/imp.htm

USA, israel and the Pilgrim Fathers' Complex

It is abundantly clear to most unbiased individuals that zionist dominance of the USA is thorough and complete with the USA giving unconditional support to the terrorist state of israel no matter what crimes they commit against the native Arab population or surrounding countries. The occasional mild criticism of israel by the USA is merely a smoke screen to deflect accusations of its subservience to that State. One must rather ask oneself why? Why is the USA subservient to israel and what does israel hope to gain from its dominance of that super power?

My readers will know without me telling them that the USA regards itself as the global policeman but not only a policeman but a prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner as witnessed by the infamous and unjust Nuernberg trials after WWII. Other 'western' countries such as the United Kingdom are mere satellites, appendages of American hegemony. One only has to note the farcical way in which the British Government has changed its policy twice over Syria in the last 3 months, firstly supporting regime change prior to the election of Trump, then saying regime change was not necessary after Trump's election and now once again calling for regime change after the illegal attack by the USA against Syria a few days ago. This was a war crime for it was a military attack against a sovereign State WITHOUT a declaration of war, something which the USA accused Japan of doing in 1941! It is interesting that whilst the USA demands that every other country abides by international law it chooses not to do and indeed does not recognise any authority of the International Criminal Court over its territories and citizens. Its use of torture in Guantanamo Bay detention camp is an obvious example of its criminality and indeed Trump when campaigning as a presidential candidate is on record as saying that he was in favour of torture-that is the measure of the man who now presides over that super power. So much for the alleged lofty ideals and moral 'superiority' of the USA!


Not content with threatening Syria the British Government has now accused the Russian Government of complicity in the alleged attacks by President Assad against the supposed 'civilian' population. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39543202. Thus the UK is now in pet poodle fashion assisting the USA in cranking up the war fever against not only Syria, Russia's ally but Russia itself thus inviting further demonization of Putin as a prelude to the possible war to come. And who is to gain from the destruction of Syria and possibly Russia? Yes, you have guessed correctly, israel for Syria, Iran and Russia stand in the way of its intended goal of a Greater israel and we are not just talking about Palestine and Jordan here but the swallowing up of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, most of Turkey and parts of Egypt. If israel eventually succeeds in their goal then they would become the most powerful State on the face of the earth thus fulfilling zionist goals and biblical prophecy. As an aside I notice how Blogger seeks to 'correct' me whenever I decline to use a capital 'I' for israel and a capital 'Z' for not only zion and zionism but does not do so for the term 'Aryan' or 'Wodenism'. I wonder why? I will let my readers work that one out for themselves!

Now I have answered the second of the two questions raised in the first paragraph so let me now answer the first! Why does the USA support israel? In modern times we have seen the way in which the media and political system is dominated by zionists with plenty of cash to buy newspapers and broadcasting stations and bribe politicians but the real answer goes deeper than just money. The United States or rather the American colonies that became the USA were colonised initially by the Pilgrim Fathers, allegedly escaping persecution in 17th century England. They took with them their desert religion of xtianity, viewing themselves in the same dubious light as the jews who escaped Pharaoh and Egypt in the Exodus. See http://www.jewishpathways.com/jewish-history/jews-and-founding-america These Puritans relied heavily upon one of the most diabolical books ever written-the Old Testament which is full of the desert 'god' commanding the israelites to exterminate other nations in the land that they stole from native populations. Yes a 'god' who not only condones but demands genocide! This explains why they had no qualms in committing genocide against the Red Indians, confining the ones that survived to reservations-often land that had no monetary value. They in effect modelled themselves on the israelites of the Old Testament and behaved accordingly in appalling fashion.


The jewish Old Testament god demanded that all peoples become subservient to the israelites or they be utterly destroyed:

"When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it. And it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee. And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it: and when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: but the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are far very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations. But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth: but thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee: that they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God." (Deuteronomy 20: 10-18, AV)

This policy of subjugation and genocide has not changed and the goal of a Greater israel requires a superior force and that force is the USA. Even today the USA is dominated not only by jewish zionists but xtian zionists as well who see in the restoration of the State of israel a sign that they are in the 'last days' prior to the second coming of their saviour so support for israel suits both parties but for obviously different reasons! However the power of this rogue State will be broken and the only power capable of doing so is Russia.

xtianity still today has an iron grip upon the white population of the USA despite it supposedly having a secular constitution. One even sees this amongst the 'white nationalist' community where even the most rabid anti-semites still cling to the coattails of their semitic religion, not seeing the obvious contradiction there! Many years ago I coined a phrase for this peculiar disposition, calling it the Pilgrim Fathers' Complex. One does not see this in England and the rest of northern Europe where xtianity is dying the natural death suggested by Adolf Hitler. More and more people are hearing the Call of the Gods and are returning to the Gods of their fathers. Hail Woden! Germania, not israel is our Holy Land!

Finally I would recommend that my readers take a close look at the flag of the State of israel. The flag was originally designed for the zionist movement in 1891, thus suggesting that the modern State of israel is indeed zionist or why would it adopt a zionist flag for their State? There is also a suggestion that the two blue stripes represent the rivers Nile and Euphrates rather than the jewish prayer shawl that the israelis claim it to be. The two rivers explanation makes far more sense to me than the official version. After all the whole point of public symbols is to appeal to the Unconscious mind, the Blood Memory, not the intellect. I would also like to add that the 'star of david' which appears at the centre of the flag was adopted as a zionist symbol by the First zionist  Congress in 1897. That self same Congress also adopted the hatikvah as their anthem, later becoming the national anthem of israel.

Trump, Syria and the Beginning of Ragnarok






It is now becoming obvious after just 3 months in office that President Donald Trump is not all that he seems to be. Whilst denying that he was a 'politician' it has not taken him very long to learn their ways. Whilst a candidate on the campaign trail he continuously made negative comments and serious allegations about his primary opponent Clinton, threatening to 'send her to jail' if he was elected. Once elected within minutes he was seen praising and thanking Clinton and her contribution to public life. That should have been the first indication to his supporters that nothing has really changed-only the name of the man in charge. Trump repeatedly told his audiences that he wanted a better relationship with Putin and Russia, suggesting an alliance between the two powers to defeat ISIS but within weeks of being elected he created further tensions between the two powers by demanding that Putin relinquishes the Crimea, something that Putin cannot possibly do without losing credibility and power in his own country.

Trump also initially suggested that the USA should cease to seek regime change in Syria or anywhere else, acknowledging the failure of recent wars in the middle east and then within hours backtracks on this, condemns Assad and the Syrian government on an unproven and unlikely allegation that he used chemical weapons in an airstrike this week and went on to commit a war crime himself by bombing an Assyrian military facility, killing civilians including children. Either someone has got to Trump and is now pulling his strings or this is evidence of instability on the part of Trump. It is quite possible that this act of aggression was committed to demonstrate how 'strong' he is as a leader and to boost his public support. Politicians know and Trump IS now a politician, that when public support is low a war tends for some strange reason to reverse that and deflects attention away from problems within the country that they govern.

This flagrant breach of international war, this war crime (something the USA excels in) which will undoubtedly go unpunished has now done the unthinkable-the American media now appears to be on Trump's side and even the media in this country is salivating over this crime, failing to appreciate the hypocrisy in that an alleged Syrian war crime should be punished by a real and provable war crime by the USA, the self appointed global policeman, judge, jury and executioner (let's not forget the Nuernberg show trials after WWII!) Two crimes does not make a right! In addition to this new found support the pressure has lessened on Trump and he has demonstrated that he is not in 'cahoots' with Russia for now relations between the two countries have worsened even further than during the days of Obama.

Clearly the two driving forces for conflict with Russia and in the middle east are israel and the military industrial complex. War sells weapons. War makes the sellers of these weapons yet more wealthy. It is war and capitalism that drives the USA's international relations, nothing else and certainly not the false lofty ideals that it lies about, ideals that their politicians cannot practice in their own country, never mind enforce anywhere else. As a consequence of this act of aggression-let's call it what it is-a war crime (something that Germany was punished by the USA for) Russia has suspended its agreement over consultation with the USA regarding military exercises and war plane flights in Syria, leading to the very real possibility of localised conflict between these two powers within Syria. All it will take is a mid air collision between an American and a Russian plane or a terrorist 'rebel' shooting down an American plane and the blame being placed upon Russia and/or Syria. Furthermore with the USA so quick to respond to the alleged chemical attack this could further embolden the terrorist 'rebels' to stage a fake chemical attack-not beyond their capability and further attacks will be launched by Trump against Syria. The USA has intimated that they are considering further military actions. With a now proven trigger happy television personality in the White House who has spilled his first blood one can only speculate how events may escalate with a Third World War now looking more likely than at any other time since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962!

Even if tensions do not escalate between the USA and Russia Trump seems to have forgotten that it is Syria, not the USA who is on the frontline against the war against ISIS and this attack by the USA could cause a setback in Syria's struggle with the very real possibility of the black flag being hoisted in Damascus. If that happens then we will witness a renewed struggle between the forces of militant Islamism and the 'west', the RAGNAROK-KORANGAR which has been predicted and the end of the Age. Let us also remember that ISIS is the direct creation of the USA in its quest for unending war. This is the reason why the USA was created to begin with, a country formed by genocide and the only country to have used nuclear weapons in a war crime committed against Japan in WWII.

The astute observer will notice the white, red and black colours of eternal Germania which appear in the Syrian flag, a flag so hated by the zionists.

British Government to Force State Employees to Swear Oath of Allegiance to 'British Values'

Asian Communities Minister Sajid Javid is proposing that all elected officials such as MPs and Councillors along with State employees such as Civil Servants and Local Government Officers should swear an oath of allegiance to his government's interpretation of 'British Values'. Not content with compelling politicians to subscribe to his party's version of what constitutes 'British Values'  he also wishes to compel those who work for the state, who are by definition politically neutral servants of the Government to do likewise, setting a dangerous precedent for the neutrality of Crown Servants. Javid is clearly of the opinion that unless one subscribes to his vision of 'British Values' one cannot work effectively for one's political masters which is of course an absurd view point. In addition to the aforementioned officials the oath may also be extended to workers of the NHS and the BBC!

Let's take a look at what these so-called 'British Values' are. According to Ofsted they are:

. Democracy.

. The rule of law.

. Individual liberty.

. Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

I don't need to tell my readers that the British Government has failed miserably on each of these four core 'values'. The way in which they have illegally spied on large segments of the population for decades and clamped down on any opposition by native English people to the ongoing depopulation and genocide of our people by the State demonstrates their lack of adherence to their much vaunted so-called 'values'. There is no 'Individual liberty' in England today where every word spoken or written is subject to the monitoring of the State, censure and prosecution.

It is clear to me that the Government is now desperate. Multiculti Britain is falling apart at the seams and islamic terrorism is now stalking  the streets of this land (Ragnarok-Korangar) , the like of which has not been seen since the days of the IRA. This initiative launched by Javid is the softer side of a two pronged attack, the harder side launched last year by Amber Rudd, the rather angry and stony faced Home Secretary. We truly are experiencing now the horror that was originally predicted by George Orwell.

Whilst I am no friend of xtianity I can understand how many xtians who subscribe to traditional values have cause for alarm by this move. It is apparent that this move by the Government is the result of an independent review carried out by Dame Louise Casey who has been labelled as the 'Integration Csar'. Casey according to the The Christian Institute is a supporter of homosexual 'marriage' and has stated that "saying that marriage is only between one man and one woman goes against British values" and that opposition to this bolshevic and unnatural institution in Roman Catholic schools "is not okay either- it is not how we bring children up in this country." So again we have this time not even an elected politician but a BUREAUCRAT determining not only what constitutes 'British Values' but has the temerity to dictate to parents and teachers how children should be raised! So it would seem that 'democracy', the 'rule of law', 'individual liberty' and 'respect and tolerance for difference' only apply if you agree with liberal politics which is exactly what modern Conservatives are-liberals. Any departure from these predetermined 'values' which have been formulated by an unelected elite is regarded as heresy and punishable by all kinds of persecution and prosecution.

If the Government is successful in forcing through this initiative (the unions appear to be silent about this- I wonder why?) then people with traditional values will be excluded from public life. I wonder if Casey and Javid have compared this to the way in which those who opposed National Socialism in Germany were likewise excluded from public life? I am not referring to jews here just people who did not agree with National Socialism. What if any is the qualitative difference between that and what is being proposed today in 21st century England?

The teaching of this political propaganda is now part of the curriculum taught in State schools. I wonder how long it will be before schoolchildren and other general citizens will be compelled to take this heinous oath?

A Remodelling of Future Teutonic Society and the Rejection of the State Idea





I have written about the Aryan and Germanic caste systems many times on these blogs so I do not intend to go over the same ground but approach the issue from a slightly different perspective. Over recent years I have come to reject the concept of a large state as envisioned by the Italian Fascist and German National Socialist regimes and I am beginning to give consideration to the tribal village concept which has become popularised by the National Anarchist movement.

I am well aware that Hitler said in one of his speeches at Nuernberg in 1934 that " It is not the State that orders us; but it is we who order the State." However the State whether it be the German or the British one engaged in a destructive war which destroyed not only the Europe of 1939-1945 but the Europe of 2017. The finest Aryan Nordic Germanic blood was lost during those totally unnecessary 6 years which ultimately achieved nothing except our destruction. Brother must not kill brother! The State is and was a monster that is out of control and in many respects it is a blood beast which devours the resources of the people that it is supposed to serve. We only need to look at how repressive states become and this applies to ALL states.

Today here in England we live in a total surveillance society where our phone calls, e mails and Internet browsing is spied upon not only by the security services of this country but by the USA as well-that is what Menwith Hill at Harrogate in Yorkshire is for, the American spy base known for its 'golf ball' domes that everyone knew was there but no one ever talked about! Even before the passing of the repressive Investigatory Powers Act in 2016 (the 'Snoopers' Charter') the security services were already spying on British citizens and doing so quite illegally at that, not that I am expecting anyone ever to come to trial for this illegal activity. The European Union's Court of Justice ruled shortly after the passing of the Act that mass surveillance was illegal. Since then everything has gone quiet-not a peep in the media. With the recent terrorist attack outside Westminster the Foreign Secretary, Amber Rudd who appears to wear a perpetual scowl on her face has decided that these powers are not enough and is demanding that spies be given access to encrypted data which is the last line of defence for those who value their privacy. If she succeeds then we may as well follow the example of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and have 'Telescreens' that watch and hear our every move? Indeed that device is already with us. Allegedly it has been manufactured by Samsung. See http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/technology-science/technology/samsung-spy-telly-scandal-erupts-5131842 For many years I suspected that this technology was already with us and could be exploited by the security services. This is one of the reasons why I still have my old CRT Television from 2005, apart from the fact that I do not believe in getting rid of something unless it does not work and cannot be repaired!

A little piece of advice for my readers-if your computer has a camera I would advise you to disable it as your every key stroke can be viewed and recorded by the security services! Going back to the subject of this article, it should be clear to everyone that the State in whatever country it may be found cannot be trusted. Its purpose is to serve an unaccountable elite. It is not there and never has been there to serve the interests of ordinary people and the larger the state becomes the more self-serving it becomes; the blood beast that I referred to earlier. I make no apologies in saying this but despite my National Socialist leanings I am under no illusion as to how many of us would have fared in the Third Reich. One only has to consider the treatment meted out to Friedrich Bernard Marby and Siegfried Adolf Kummer to come to the conclusion that having folkish views was not necessarily enough to guarantee one's safety but only rigid conformity to the diktats of the State. Whilst I would describe myself as an esoteric National Socialist I have no desire as a free thinking Teuton to live as a thrall! Unfortunately this was the undoing of the Third Reich-the creation of a large powerful state that became self-serving and allowed certain elements to abuse their influence and authority. If National Socialism is to survive as a Weltanschauung it must free itself from its clear former dependence and association with Italian Fascism. It is perfectly obvious to me that Hitler did in fact model the German state on that of Mussolini's Italy although Hitler was astute enough to realise that with the death of President Paul von Hindenburg in 1934 the office of President as HEAD OF STATE must be incorporated into that of Fuehrer and thus ensuring that no higher temporal power within the state could topple him. This was the weakness of Mussolini. Mussolini was merely Prime Minister and thus NOT Head of State. This to me was the weakness and indeed self contradiction of the whole notion of being Il Duce (The Leader)!

No, the whole concept of forming a powerful state is not only unattractive for the freedom loving Teutonic man but is an unachievable goal for us in the immediate term. What could be achieveable is the formation of small village communities under the leadership of wise elders that share a common religion and Weltanschauung. This is how I see National Socialism in the 21st century developing as a spiritual and esoteric philosophy rather than a revival of a model of Italian Fascism! Thus we must learn from both the strengths of the Third Reich and its weaknesses if we are to make any progress.

Before the formation of the Second Reich in 1871 or even the First Reich in 800 there was a Germany and Germany is not dependant upon having a state for it to exist. Modern England for instance does not have a state but no one in their right mind would deny that as a political and legal entity it still exists! Therefore as a people we can still exist outside of any notions of statehood and this in my opinion is how we must develop our concepts of collective belonging.

One feature of German society in the 1930s and 1940s was a virtual classless or casteless society unless you view the SS as forming a higher caste of course. As folkish heathens we must seek to reintroduce the divine model of Teutonic society which was outlined for us in the remarkable Rigsthula. On the surface the myth relates to us the formation of the Jarl, Karl and Thrall castes with Jarl being divided further into the caste of Kon. The historical reasons for this I have already commented on but I intend to make my position on this clearer in the near future. This system must not be confused with the repressive feudal system introduced in 1066 CE with the Normans nor the system that has been in force in India which is more a reflection of the various racial groups in Indian society and their relative positions of influence with regard to each other. We must once again swear oaths of loyalty and fielty to leaders appointed and anointed by Woden, making our societies thus subject to the will of the Gods rather than the fluctuating self interests of temporal leaders. The shift of power from the Kon to the Jarl caste in the governance of Germanic society is in my opinion a mistake for this only leads to unnecessary wars fought for material rather than spiritual goals, wars of conquest for conquest's sake rather than Holy Wars in service of the Gods.

Ragnar Lodbrok, an Odinic Hero-Some Initial Thoughts




This brief article was inspired by a reading of Wulf Ingessunu's interesting essay The ALU-ULA Runic Mystery, published in Odin's Lore. The Magick & Symbolism of the Runes, edited by Troy Southgate (Black Front Press, 2017). I only wish to comment on one small aspect of his essay.
Wulf makes reference to Ragnar Lodbrok and how in the excellent Television series The Vikings (currently being shown on Blaze Freeview channel) Ragnar is guided by the Will of Odin to go westward towards England, ostensibly to plunder and pillage but Odin is guiding him to embark upon a holy crusade against the xtianised Anglo-Saxons who have abandoned the Gods of their fathers.

It is most clear from just a cursory study of the Viking raids that plunder and pillage were not the only factors that drew them but a desire for revenge against the militant alien desert religion which had already invaded the Germanic lands and was making advances towards Scandinavia. This era should be considered as a noble attempt by our Scandinavian brothers in waging a holy war against the semitic demiurge who in the guise of another alien religion is threatening our continent today. Indeed one should also view WW II in the same way, a holy war of Wotan against the demiurge. The Wehrmacht and indeed the Waffen SS should be considered as latter day 'Vikings', taking their vengeance on the forces of involution and the spiritual and racial decay caused by the triumph of xtianity in the 'west'.

The very first record of a Viking raid recorded in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles is for the year 793 CE:

"Here were dreadful forewarnings come over the land of Northumbria, and woefully terrified the people: these were amazing sheets of lightning and whirlwinds, and fiery dragons were seen flying in the sky. A great famine soon followed these signs, and shortly after in the same year, on the sixth day before the ides of January, the woeful inroads of heathen men destroyed god’s church in Lindisfarne island by fierce robbery and slaughter."

It should be noted here that the target of these Vikings' wrath was the priory on Lindisfarne off the coast of Northumberland. Interestingly the xtian scribes who wrote the Chronicles also seem to place this raid in the context of a divine judgement being visited upon the xtianised English and certainly the prelude to this very first raid were great signs in the heavens, signs which are more relevant to the Gods Odin and Thor than the xtian god. The xtian church had robbed the heathen English of their Gods, the same Gods worshiped by the Vikings but with different names: Woden, Thunor, Tiw, Frige, Baeldag, etc. This vengeance therefore was aimed primarily at the church and the leaders of the English folk who had betrayed the people that they were divinely appointed to protect, and sold them out to an alien religion: not too dissimilar to the processes at work today in England which has been betrayed by its political class and an impotent monarchy.

Also in his essay Wulf makes reference to the Einheriar being led out of Valhalla by both Woden and Ragnar Lodbrok. I am not sure why but this comment resonates with me on a deeper instinctive level and I feel that Wulf has hit upon something very important here which may be developed further. We certainly know from The Tale of Ragnar Lodbrok that he is now in Valhalla and undoubtedly as one of our greatest heroes he will take his place with Woden at Ragnarok:

“It gladdens me to know that Baldr’s father (Odin) makes ready the benches for a banquet. Soon we shall be drinking ale from the curved horns. The champion who comes into Odin’s dwelling (Valhalla) does not lament his death. I shall not enter his hall with words of fear upon my lips. The Æsir will welcome me. Death comes without lamenting. Eager am I to depart. The Dísir summon me home, those whom Odin sends for me (Valkyries) from the halls of the Lord of Hosts. Gladly shall I drink ale in the high-seat with the Æsir. The days of my life are ended. I laugh as I die.”

I have spent the last few days reflecting on the name of Ragnar and it is interesting to observe how his name is part of Ragnarok. Its meaning is 'strong counselor'. The reflection of Ragnar is Rangar. If we separate the two syllables we get ran and gar. I feel that this is significant. Gar as we know is Germanic for 'spear' and is closely associated with Woden. The term ran in Germanic has the same modern meaning and indeed the Spearhead of Kovel has the runic inscription ranja, meaning the 'runner'. Thus Rangar is the runner of the spear, or the one who wields it, representing Woden in the world of men. He thus represents both the God and His divine authority. Spears were wielded by pre-xtian Germanic kings and chieftains as symbols of their Wodenic authority and this symbolism continued after the forced conversion of the Germanic peoples. See Chapter Five Spears of Destiny in The Mysteries of the Goths by Edred Thorsson (Limited Edition, 2007, Runa-Raven Press).

I am sure that there is much more to meditate on regarding Ragnar Lodbrok but these are just some initial thoughts I had on the subject.

The White Horse of Woden




I have always assumed that Woden rode a grey horse for it is written in the Eddas that Odin's horse Sleipnir was grey:
"It was grey and had eight legs, and this is the best horse among gods and men." (Gylfaginning, Prose/Younger Edda, translated by Anthony Faulkes) 
I have checked all the references to Sleipnir in both the Elder and Younger Eddas and I can only find this one reference to his colour. It needs to be born in mind though that the composition of this Edda was relatively late. Snorri Stuluson composed this work around the year 1200 CE so we cannot tell how ancient the concept of a grey Sleipnir is. We also do not know whether Snorri obtained this information from an earlier source as Sleipnir's colour is not mentioned in the Poetic/Elder Edda which was composed possibly as early as the 10th century although it is incorrectly attributed to the 12th century Icelandic priest Saemand the Learned. It is thought by scholars that the Elder Edda contains genuinely ancient material and most if not all of it would have been familiar to people in the Viking Age so it is curious that the colour of Odin's horse is not mentioned in these early poems.

What has caused me to question the colour is due to a rereading of parts of Jacob Grimm's Teutonic Mythology Volume 1:

"We are expressly told, this wild hunter Wode rides a white horse." (page 156)      
"In S. Germany they tell of the lord of the castle's grazing gray (or white), Mone anz. 3, 259 ; v. infra, the 'wuetende heer'." 

Grimm refers to various legends from Mecklenburg regarding the Wild Hunt whose leader is known as Wod which my readers will be aware that along with its variant Wode is the oldest name of our High God:

"A peasant was coming home tipsy one night from town, and his road led him through a wood; there he hears the wild hunt, the uproar of the hounds, and the shout of the huntsman up in the air: 'midden in den weg!' cries the voice, but he takes no notice. Suddenly out of the clouds there plunges down, right before him, a tall man on a white horse." (Teutonic Mythology volume 3, page 924)

I will not repeat the entire story here but refer my readers to Grimm but it should be noted that the 'tall man' is referred to as Wod in the rest of the tale. However it should be noted here that Wod rode a white horse, not a gray one and I believe that this was the original colour of the horse whether it was eight legged or not (this may be a later development). Likewise the name of the horse, Sleipnir was probably a later and more northerly development.

Of course whilst this information may in itself be interesting my readers will be wondering why I have posted this here rather than on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog. The reason for this will become clear. According to the Purana Hindu scriptures Kalki will ride a white horse and carry a blazing sword. Like Sleipnir it is a horse that is capable of riding through the air.

"Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, will mount His swift white horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings." (Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.19-20)

White horses had a particular mystical significance for the Germanic peoples and were used for purposes of divination:

"Peculiar to that people, in contrast, is to try as well the portents and omens of horses: maintained at public expense in the groves and woods, they are white and untouched by any earthly task; when yoked to the sacred chariot, the priest and the king or leading man of the state escort them and note their neighs and snorts. To no other auspices is greater faith granted, not only among the common folk, but among the nobles and priests, for they see themselves as mere servants of the gods, but the horses as their intimates." (Germania 10:2, Tacitus, translation by J.B. Rives)   
"Although the familiar method of seeking information from the cries and the flight of birds is known to the Germans, they have also a special method of their own-to try to obtain omens and warnings from horses. These horses are kept at the public expense in the sacred woods and groves that I have mentioned; they are pure white and undefiled by any toil in the service of man. The priest and the king, or the chief of the state, yoke them to a sacred chariot and walk beside them, taking note of their neighs and snorts. No kind of omen inspires greater trust, not only among the common people, but even among the nobles and priests, who think that they themselves are but servants of the gods, whereas the horses are privy to the gods' counsels." (Germania 10, Tacitus, translation by H. Mattingley, revised by S.A. Handford) 

As my English readers will know the English countryside in the south of the country has various chalk images cut into the sides of hills and some of these are of horses such as the Uffington Horse which is said to date back to the Bronze Age. The Westbury Horse is another example which certainly goes back to at least Saxon times. The flags of Kent and Niedersachsen in Germany feature a white horse. The chieftain brothers Hengest and Horsa likewise have names that are equine in nature. Thus the White Horse had a clear mystical importance in the culture and psyche of pre-xtian Germanic man. It was also revered by the Celtic peoples. The Goddess Rhiannon who features in the Mabinogi, rides a 'pale' horse and She may be associated with the Gallo-Roman Epona. In Slavic mythology the God Svantovit owned an oracular white horse. In Greek mythology the God Poseidon fathered a winged white horse, Pegasus.

We should not be surprised that the horse, especially the white one was held in such high esteem as the Aryan peoples accorded a solar origin to this noble beast:
"The horse figures with the bull-ox, stag and aquatic birds in proto-Celtic cult contexts and, as examples from Scandinavia show, it had, at this stage, definite solar associations.
"In Indo-European contexts, the horse was of great economic and ritual importance, and its cult role amongst the Celts reflects this widespread attitude. Its importance is demonstrated, for example, by the coins, on which it may be figured alone or in company with the charioteer-often a crane appears above or below it, as in the symbolism of the Urnfield and Hallstatt toreutic tradition." (Pagan Celtic Britain, 1967, Anne Ross)

The book of Revelation refers to a white horse in two chapters:

"And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer." (Chapter 6, verse 2, AV)
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." (Chapter 19, verse 11, AV)  

It is more than clear to me that regardless of that single reference in the Younger Edda the colour of Woden's horse is white and the colour matters because this ties him in with the Kalki avatar and the figure(s) referred to in Revelation 19. However we know from the Eddas that it is not Woden Himself that is coming but His son and avatar Widar. When Widar takes His place at Ragnarok He will mount a horse and I believe that this will be the horse of His father, Woden. It makes sense for all sorts of reasons.

"Brushwood grows and high grass
           widely in Vidar's land;

           and there the son proclaims on his horse's back

           that he's keen to avenge his father.
