    Ah, I like polish people. Not so much the drunkard dockworker types I used to meet sometimes in the wharf industry. But those are a breed of their own in any population. :rofl: Every other word was literally "kurwa". Regular polish people on the other hand, I like. Know a fair share right here where I live, because I used to go to catholic mass regularly, for a year or so. Wouldn't say I despised every minute of it. I learned some things and it was good for the intended purposes. And I got to know a bunch of good people, some of them polish.

    I am actually writing something longer on something like what you are talking about. This is sort of where I am coming from. Not your average nostalgic pagan, either. I only care about what works and what I know is true, because of actual exploration into it. Not getting much from stuffy theoretical books at all, I find that those have extremely little to do with faith and more with anthropological guessing games. It is better by an order of magnitude to explore, to see and then be able to know. If anyone listens is secondary, but could of course be beneficial. I know a handful of people who are on the same page, fellow explorers. Our discoveries can often be different pieces of the puzzle, or we can use different terminology for the same thing, but usually we are on the same page. A general marker of truth in faith is the matter of life and rebirth. I won't go wholeheartedly into anything that does not contain something that I have seen and know for myself to be true.

    Great word! I too am a neologician (coiner of neologisms), and can appreciate it from the POV of a fellow craftsman.

    It’s also great to meet a fellow wildman, though circumstances forced me to give up most of the ways long ago.
    Incredible! You must have been a scribe in a lot of past lives.
    I went through a cataclysmic realization of how industrialized hi-tech civ is destroying the humanity of the species, and subsequently promoted what I conceived as the first step to a solution: for new tribes of people to return to the kind of lifestyle which evidently you are actually living. I called for the creation of a Human Wildlife Preserve, with people living as paleoliths within the forest fastnesses that still remain.

    But I was certain that the ultimate step was to pull the plug on the global tech-mech monolith. Lately I’ve made some progress in describing the scenario in fiction:

    Realm of the Ram

    It would also be a giant leap in the right direction to form a Männerbund, which some of the folks here on Lumine Boreali talked about in its early days.

    I’m curious to know what part of Appalachia you’re in, though will understand if you prefer not to say. West Virginia? Some friends of mine once established a homestead in the hollers there, and I was able to scope out the stark remoteness within a small geographic area. Or maybe Alabama. I’m from the northern end, the Pennsylvania coal fields. It was pretty medieval then. I never even saw a negro till my junior class trip to Hershey Park, where they make the chocolate. The first sighting was memorable: one of the guys looked out the window of the bus and shouted: “Look, a Hershey girl!” :rofl:

    I am near the southernmost proximity. The Alabama-Tennesse border or "Smoky Mountains".

    Greetings,

    My interests in politics (in the more perennial sense of the word), personal discipline and ethics, the nature of social currents and undercurrents, culture, natural differences in human populations, group power dynamics, etc... have accompanied me throughout my life. Only recently have I broken into a previously unexplored intellectual space that allowed me to explore these topics in a novel and intriguing way. Formally, I am educated in the biological and physical sciences (for what it is worth these days), though my interests have always been diverse. I believe that there is much practical value in the materialist understanding, but this way of thinking is not to be venerated as supreme, to the exclusion of other ways as it is now, by design. The irony of the situation is that the denial of the spiritual dimension leads to death, of the individual and of the society. This is a completely material explanation.

    Aside from blogs and other writings strewn about the internet, I have been reading a couple of works by Evola. I have read Tolkien's most common stories, which contain themes that are foreign to modern entertainment media which occupies the space of genuine organic culture, namely the theme of righteous authority and is conspicuously devoid of the tired "protest and iconoclasm" narrative. It's possible that I will continue to expand into perhaps Guenon or other authors as my research dictates. Exploration of the classical age and beyond could be something on the horizon.

    To summarize one way in which my thinking has evolved, I realize that transcendence and greatness in history imposed a cost. It was not free. It is the basis of the universal(?) rite as discussed by Evola and others. Sacrifice. And we have forgotten.

    Just asking, but what exactly made them stop?

    Lack of conversational skill, of which the above is a good example.

    I live in the UK, originally from South Africa. I was very much of a libertarian view of the world, then connected the dots as many seem to have done that no Europeans = no libertarianism, and from there started to realise just how serious our predicament is, and how deep the rot goes.

    This led to me to various youtubers, of whom I think Survive The Jive was the first to bring the idea of radical traditionalism to my attention, but it was a video by a guy named Apolonnian Germ which really got me interested. He was reviewing one of Evola's works and I was hit with the sudden realisation that I am drifting through life and completely missing the point. Essentially, I am living my life as a child, as are many men my age.

    Another event(s) which impacted my world view was the birth of my two daughters, it changed my perspective on things, really got me thinking about the sort of world I want them to grow up in.

    And yet another event, and now that I think about it probably more powerful than I at first thought, I started researching my family roots (mostly Germanic and Scandinavian) and developed sense that my ancestors legacy should be protected. I had sought out my grandfathers grave, he died long before I was born, and as I sat paying my respects I was struck by a horrifying vision that a mosque or shopping centre might exist nearby one day. A few years ago I wouldn't have even cared where my ancestors were buried.

    So I have a long list of projects, one of them is to really get to grips with traditionalism and I have a folder with list of books, podcasts, videos to consume when the time comes. But I have something that I can't get off my mind, that is eating up energy, and that is when I begin this path in earnest, given the various factors in my life what is the best way to progress, the first step, I need to have that clear in my head

    I should probably add that as far as spirituality goes, I grew up in a "culturally Christian" household and have been agnostic for most of my life, spent a lot of time practising meditation (no longer) but was not interested in the religious aspect of Bhuddism. I have been studying Stoicism for a few years which helped me build much needed mental resilience, but of course that is a philosophy rather than a religion. Now I am realising spirituality is something very important, which is related to what I said above about first steps.

    For the avoidance of doubt, I am an absolute "newb" to all this.

    "Progressive" politics consistently disregard the importance of family and family law to society; "Progressive" lifestyles consistently presuppose a sterile and non-procreative sexuality. It makes sense that doing the opposite would be the start of a different political attitude.

    Anyway, always good to see a new face!

    Many thanks. Glad to have found my way here, have been reading old threads and feel very out of my depth intellectually.

    Welcome. Your prose was very introspective and constructive. In order to restore a proper external civilization, an inner civilization must be established spiritually by certain individuals. Looking inward like this always is followed by a greater realization.

    If we are attempting to rid ourselves of all that is liberal and modern, Stoicism should certainly be included. You cannot place horizontal values such as logic and reason as the end goal; these are only tools to reaching a superior understanding. It lacks the transcendental element of verticality because there is nothing morally above man.

    There are a lot of semi-Traditional schools such as these whose only Traditional components stem from remnants that they acquired via osmosis of actual Traditional elements at the time (obviously Stoicism existing in Rome, thereby containing more Traditional cultural elements than modern liberalism). The degenerative aspect within these phenomena are always a humanitarian, horizontal focus orienting towards the masses, or an emphasis on outer liberation as opposed to inner spiritual liberation. Evola speaks of this in Men Among the Ruins about Personality and Hierarchy, in freedom "to do" something as opposed to freedom "from doing" something, the latter of which being a restriction from activities toward a higher, inhuman dimension that spiritually frees man, and the former of which being a materialistic liberation that further confuses him - Stoicism would certainly be in this category as its morality is stemming from something within man as opposed to something completely separate. This also relates to what he said about the illusion of democracy being the antithesis of communism, as if a diluted poison is in fact an antidote; why not entirely severe the demonic components of modernity and establish a truly immutable source? Hellenic philosophy in any form contains a degeneration of this kind.

    I would be interested to hear more about your spiritual awakening and realizations you come to.
