"Oh, Greatest Of Kings, indulge me in this friendly Christmas game. Let whichever of your knights is boldest of blood and wildest of heart step forth, take up arms, and try with honor to land a blow against me. Whomsoever nicks me shall lay claim to this, my arm. It's glory and riches shall be thine. But thy champ must bind himself to this. Should he land a blow, then one year and Yuletide hence, he must seek me out yonder, to the Green Chapel six nights to the North. He shall find me there, and bend the knee, and let me strike him in return. Be it a scratch on the cheek, or a cut on the throat, I will return what was given to me, and then in trust and friendship we shall part. Who, then, who is willing to engage with me?"
― Anon, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

The notion that global policymakers care about the environment can be easily disproven...
It was the very same policymakers / institutions / political parties / NGOs, and often the same individuals who persistently pushed for mass-immigration and acceptance of 'refugees'.
Yesterday I suffered another trip to a city. As I looked around at the ethnic diversity—Arabic children glued to smartphones, Asian men in gas-guzzling high-status cars, African women in straightened hair and high fashion, Oriental people loading up their shopping trolleys with globally produced goods—I was reminded that these immigrants are in most cases transformed into 'high-impact' consumers when they arrive on Western shores. In their ancestral homelands they'd have a lower 'carbon score'.
I oppose the Globalist Technocrats and their false religion of 'Sustainability' wholeheartedly, but I also recognise the damage that Western Consumerism does to the planet. Our overuse of plastic and overpopulation are of particular concern to me.
Where will you draw your line in the sand?
Far too many of us found a way of justifying:
- Credit cards<br/>- Smartphones<br/>- Amazon Prime memberships<br/>- Netflix memberships<br/>- Masks during the nondemic<br/>- Scanning QR codes to travel and socialise<br/><br/>
Will you use these new 'walk out' shops or will you outright refuse to dignify them, foregoing the convenience? For the survival of your folk's freedom and dignity, at some stage of 'technological progress' you're going to have to opt-out. Firmly and absolutely.
Just so everyone's clear, this post of Hwitgeard's, which I shared, is not an anti-Christian one. It's an anti-Gab one. It lays bare the brazen hypocrisy of Andrew Torba; a man who repeatedly parrots Biblical slander against Pagans, and then suggests that people trust their own ancestors over Biblical slander.
According to Gab what Jews said about our ancestors is only bad after our conversion to Christianity. Before then, it's all fair game. We probably deserved it anyway for being immoral, idol worshipping sinners who, like children, needed to be taught right from wrong by our superiors. It's only in the Talmud and modern era that this is a problem;
"But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves"
"But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire."
"Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place."
"And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever."
"For all the gods of the nations are idols"
"All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity."
"Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob."
"And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves."
"The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant."
"In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished."
"Why do the nations (גוֹיִ֑ם, goyyim) rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?"
"And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate"
"But Jesus said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”" (about a gentile woman)
"But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”"
1 Corinthians 12:2
"Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led."
There are cases where it is legitimate to wonder why a lady posing as the epitome of 'trad', whilst in a stable relationship, is childless. But overall Markus is right for the reasons he gives here, and also because one should not assume the personal circumstance of a woman they barely know; Perhaps she has children and doesn't want it to be public knowledge? Perhaps she lost a child? Perhaps she can't have children? Perhaps her partner can't?
Most damning of all: I'm fairly sure most of the critics of childless women are themselves childless men.
“Pope Gregory I (in 601) laid the church’s strategy out quite plainly. As he wrote to Mellitus, his missionary in England, “[Do] not…stop such ancient pagan festivities…adapt them to the rites of the Church, only changing the reason of them from a heathen to a Christian impulse.”

In The Lord of the Rings, Saruman (from Old English searu + mann, device or machine-man) has a tower named Orthanc. Tolkien took the name from Old English orþanc, which means cunning, skill, or genius but also an original or inborn thought. The machine-man wizard lives in a tower of inborn cunning.
For Anglo-Saxons, ideas and inspiration of genius may be seen to arise externally, probably by divine influence. There's a good example in Beowulf, which was common elsewhere; 'him on mōd bearn', literally 'to him into mood (it) be-ran' (metathesis of berann to bearn), thus something ran by to his mind, it came from outside of himself.
Our ancestors, it seemed, perceived something devious and deceptive about cunning which was orþanc, rather than come from the outside, for such inborn skill could only be self-serving. This is an idea which I mentioned briefly in my Kulture Dads discussion with Mike and Dave, and why it is important to preserve the unique nuances in linguistic diversity.
The Fyrgen Podcast - Episode 23: The Heathen Soul with Anders Nilsson
▶️ Listen on Telegram here
I'm joined by respected Swedish heathen and craftsman Anders Nilsson—progenitor of 'Odin World Prayer Day'—to discuss aspects of his book 'Odins väg' ('The Way of Wotan' in its English form). This is a discussion about the deeper, more esoteric side of heathen practice, concerning the nature of the soul and the afterlife, and how this wisdom can assist us through our modern struggle.

A particularly dangerous and widespread assumption among the public is to assume that whatever the police enforce must be law, almost as though the police define the law. No! Their duty is to uphold the law but they're just as capable of breaking it as anyone else is. This is why it's so important to establish the authenticity and badge number of officers.
