funkbiscuit said: You mentioned in one post about how Christianity is holding Europeans back from their heritage in a way, and how a different religion was needed. Would a revival of a previous religion, say Norse/Greek/Roman/Celtic/etc. be sufficient to fit the bill?
Absolutely. Any mythos or religion that celebrates strength and beauty would be a radical improvement over the shaming, emasculating dogma of Christ.
Jesus should be laughed at for getting his just desserts. The Romans built the noblest civilisation on earth, but this just wasn’t good enough for Jesus because it wasn’t a communist utopia. He talked out of line and condemned the values of strength, honour and pride, and frankly, I’m glad that traitor met a miserable end.
European history is the story of the Nordic race’s will to power. It should never have been corrupted by a glorifying those who would not help themselves - Jesus could have been a soldier, a merchant, an artist or a mason, but instead he chose to spread the poison of egalitarianism. The will to power is what sustains and preserves life, and a new religion must have a basis of affirming life and strength rather than weakness and death.
Norse, Greek, Roman and Celtic religions must be brought back from the brink. The antidote to soul-deadening pop culture lies in allowing ourselves to be emotionally drawn to their symbols, mythos and ideals. To deny that these religions have emotional gravity for Europeans is to deny their genetic heritage; These fictions are pre-rational and echo, always, always echo, down the corridors of time; manifesting in a different shape with every age.
The black sun symbol is at least two millenia old. In 2011, a European woman sat down to tell a story, and decided that harmony would be maintained by a magical, majestic unicorn that raises the sun.
