Editorial Note: We reproduce the following article not because we agree with all of the opinions expressed by its author [1] but because, after a long preamble, it has – in our opinion – some intriguing things to say about David Myatt, Vindex, and the Order of Nine Angles.

We have replaced some of the links to pdf files available from that blog to ones available via this blog.

Zionism And The Zeitgeist Of The West

The actual zeitgeist of the governments of the modern West – as opposed to the imagined zeitgeist that many people seem to believe in – was evident in a recent event. Which event was the attack in May 2018 on unarmed Muslim civilians by the army of the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine and which attack resulted in 58 Muslims killed with over 2,000 injured. The Muslims were protesting at the American government moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in compliance to Zionist demands.

Officials of the American government failed to condemn the massacre of civilians, with the Zionists blaming Muslim “terrorists” for the violence, even though not one Zionist soldier was injured or killed. In addition, the governments of Europe merely expressed “some concern” at the events, although had some Muslims, somewhere in the world, killed 58 civilians and injured over 2,000, those governments would assuredly have stridently condemned such an attack, called it “an atrocity”, and demanded that the killers “be brought to justice.”

The zeitgeist is also evident in another recent event. The imposition by the government of America, again at the behest of the Zionist entity, of even more punitive sanctions on Iran with the excuse being to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons even though the Zionist entity has – in violation of international treaties – developed nuclear weapons and has not been, is not being, and will not be, subject to international sanctions for so developing such weapons.

       The zeitgeist is thus one of hypocrisy, of double standards, and of uncritical support – economic, financial, military, propagandistic and otherwise – for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine, with overt criticism of that entity and of its policies deemed to be, especially in European countries, “anti-Semitism” and regarded by all Western governments as “morally repugnant” and as “hate speech.” The career of any Western politician who dares to criticize, for whatever reason, the Zionist entity will be over, as the recent case of Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London, illustrates.

The new zeitgeist of the West is founded – as the Zionist entity was – on one modern legend and one old myth. The old myth is that God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” and who thus regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrew tribes mentioned in the Old Testament, and who sincerely believe that

                  “The Jews were chosen to act as pathfinders for the world, and Israel has a special place as an instrument to effect the Jew’s social engineering upon the world.” {1}{2}

The modern legend is of “evil Nazis” who persecuted and then deliberately exterminated millions of “the chosen people” leaving those who remained with a duty to emigrate to and settle in Palestine and thus force (or by various means persuade) the Muslims who lived there to leave.

This zeitgeist – and the uncritical support engendered, especially by both past American governments and the current government of America – has assured the present success of the Zionist entity, commercially, financially, economically, and military. A success and a zeitgeist evident, for example, in that the entity is now advertised and accepted as a “European-type” tourist destination for Western peoples and is included in the “Eurovision Song Contest” even though it is not, geographically, in Europe.

Yet successful as the Zionist entity now appears to be, what its government, and those in the Western governments who support it, forget or do not know – what those who resort to “in time” methods and tactics always forget or never seem to know – is the Aeonic, the “above time”, aspect and perspective. {3}

An Aeonic Perspective

Perceived Aeonically, the Zionist entity may well be successful, for a while: be it for some decades, be it for a hundred years or perhaps more. However, their success is dependant on the continuing support of America, on a continuing belief among the peoples of the West in both the legend of the holocaust, and in the myth supported by evangelical/traditionalist Nazarenes (especially in America) that their support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture which they believe revealed that their Nazarene God intended Palestine for those who consider themselves “the chosen people” as thus who regard themselves as the descendants of the Hebrews tribes mentioned in the Old Testament.

However,

§ Regarding American support, both the demographic and the belief of the people of America are changing. Demographically, the move is away from a White majority toward those hitherto ethnic minorities – the Hispanic and the Negro – who have an instinctive aversion to the policies and politics espoused by people such as The Vulgarian {4}. In terms of belief, it is estimated that, in America, every year around 3,000 Nazarene churches close due to falling congregations, with a 2017 study by the American based Public Religion Research Institute revealing that in 1996 around 65% of Americans identified themselves as White Christians while a decade or so later only 43% did so.

Thus it is reasonable to conclude that in a hundred or so years time the people of America, and their beliefs, will be different from that of today, with there being no guarantee of American support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine.

§ Regarding belief among the peoples of the West in the legend of the holocaust, although it is likely that over the next three or four decades more Western lands will introduce Zionist-supported tyrannical laws making questioning “the holocaust” a criminal offence punishable by imprisonment, the history of Western peoples over the last three millennia reveals that rebellion against tyrannical laws is inevitable, sooner or later, be that later a century or more. For every tyranny, every Empire, has its day with none, in the entire history of humanity, lasting more than three or four centuries. There is always a revolution or rebellions; there is always the death – from natural causes or otherwise – of a tyrant or potentate; there is always a change of government; always the removal, the overthrow – violent or otherwise – of a ruling cabal. And there are always new ideals, new ideas, new ways of living, which replace – gradually or otherwise – the old.

§ Regarding the belief among Nazarenes that support for the Zionist entity that currently occupies Palestine is authorized by Nazarene Scripture, the Nazarene religion itself is currently threatened by the spread of Islam which of course is why the Zionist entity – and supporters of that entity, such as the current American government – have waged and are waging both a propaganda and an actual or a proxy or an economic war against Muslim influence in the Middle East and elsewhere: such as in Afghanistan (actual war and invasion), Iraq (actual war and invasion), Syria (proxy war), Yemen (proxy war), Iran (economic war and agitation for regime change), Sinai (proxy war), Rakhine State (proxy war), Somalia (proxy war).

While Zionist and Western propaganda describes this war against Muslim influence as a “war on terror” it is in reality – as the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan has revealed – a war against Muslims living without Western influence and according to Shariah in their own lands. The hypocrisy of calling it a “war on terror” is evident in the fact that Western wars and invasions and proxy wars, and the Zionist entity, have killed far more Muslim civilians – tens upon tens of thousands – than Muslim “terrorist” groups have killed Western civilians and residents of the Zionist entity.

Zeitgeist Of The West, Heresy, And The O9A

That the original zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by the aforementioned Zionist-loving zeitgeist was explained in Myatt’s 1984 essay Vindex: Destiny Of The West {5}. In that text Myatt described the replacement zeitgeist as Magian and concluded that National Socialism – what it actually was, not what Zionist propaganda and the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ has made it appear to be – was an expression of the original, Faustian, zeitgeist of the West, and that

                  “in its relation to what we have called the ethos of the West, National-Socialism, from its very beginnings in Munich in 1919, stands as an embodiment of that ethos. National-Socialism was a resurgence of basically Faustian values over and above the cultural dominance of the Magian.”

That National Socialism – correctly perceived and understood, as for example by means of the life and writings of Waffen-SS General Leon Degrelle {6} – is now a modern heresy, with promotion of such heresy and denial of modern legend of ‘the holocaust’ made illegal in several European lands, should be obvious.

Enter, into this heretical milieu, the esoteric Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA). Which modern esoteric movement {7} has antinomian Insight Roles {8} some of which involve supporting National Socialism and denying the modern legend of ‘the holocaust’, and which esoteric Order

                  “has always praised the warrior ethos, Hitler, and the Waffen-SS, and propagated the Vindex mythos, and emphasised the idea of a Galactic Imperium; and why the O9A values, and emphasises, both ‘the clan’ and ‘the tribe’ and such pagan ancestral European traditions as the Rounwytha.” {9}

In addition, the O9A has always promoted the idea – founded on scholarship – that

                  “as described in the O9A text The Geryne of Satan – (i) hasatan – the satan – refers (in the Septuagint) to the chief adversary (of the so-called ‘chosen ones’) and to the chief schemer against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah, and (ii) “a satan” historically (in the Septuagint) refers to someone who is an adversary of and who thus is pejoratively regarded (by those so opposed) as scheming, as plotting against those who regard themselves as the chosen people of God/Jehovah.” {10}

That this heretical understanding of Satan and of Satanism has been usurped by the Media-supported egoistic, Magian, ‘satanism’ manufactured and propagated by Howard Stanton Levey (the Yahoudi, a.k.a. Anton Szandor LaVey) – and accepted by most self-described “neo-nazis” as defining Satanism – should be sufficient of itself to understand (i) how the Faustian zeitgeist of the West has been replaced by one based on a modern legend and an old myth, and (ii) what the O9A with its Aeonic understanding, its “sinister dialectic”, and its practical dangerous heresy, is all about, and (iii) why that acausal “sinister dialectic”, undermining as it does the status quo, is based on the knowledge, the wisdom, of the inevitable decline and fall of those individuals – and of those governments and entities – who are “in time” and who thus are enamoured of, and by, simplistic causal abstractions.

{2} In this context, “social engineering” refers both (i) to government and State efforts (through for example laws, centralized planning, and propaganda) to influence the attitudes and ideas of people and the structure of society, and (ii) to efforts by the Media and special interest groups to bring about certain changes in society.

{3} The categories “in time” and “above time” refer to Savitri Devi’s book The Lightning and the Sun in which she describes three basic types of leaders. Those “in time” – like Genghis Khan – who concentrate on military might; those “above time” – like the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten – who are otherworldly; and those “against time” – like Adolf Hitler – who are both “in time” and “above time”, both Lightning and Sun.

{8} By means of Insight Roles, the Order of Nine Angles “advocates continuous transgression of established norms, roles, and comfort zones in the development of the initiate […] This extreme application of ideas further amplifies the ambiguity of satanic and Left Hand Path practices of antinomianism, making it almost impossible to penetrate the layers of subversion, play and counter-dichotomy inherent in the sinister dialectics.” Faxneld, Per & Petersen, Jesper Aagaard, The Devil’s Party: Satanism in Modernity. 2013.

A Different Perspective

odal3

The essays which make up the document titled Regarding Western Paganism And Hermeticism {1} seem to me to point to a truth which is both relevant and controversial.

The document is relevant because of how our Western culture is mis-understood even by many native Europeans, and also because that culture is under attack by those – now often government supported – advocates of a ‘multi-cultural society’ with public advocacy of one’s own native culture being (if, that is, one is of European descent) frowned upon and even in some European lands outlawed because deemed by certain governments to be “hate speech”.

The document is controversial because it describes a culture which most modern political advocates of Western culture – of Western ‘civilization’ – will be unfamiliar with, fixated as so many of such political advocates seem to be with the mistaken belief that Christianity is the embodiment of that culture.

However, as described in that document – and in the texts referenced therein – Western culture is essentially pagan and derived from the culture of ancient Greece and Rome with Christianity thus understood as a Hebraic intrusion.

The document thus provides an entirely new – perhaps even a heretical – perspective on Western culture as well as referencing texts, such as David Myatt’s Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos and his Tu Es Diaboli Ianuas which, with their focus on such things as καλὸς κἀγαθός, metaphysically evolve Western paganism beyond “mythoi and anthropomorphic deities (theos and theoi) to an appreciation of the numinous sans denotatum and sans religion.” {2}

There is a cultural revolution in the truths embedded in Regarding Western Paganism And Hermeticism and in the texts referenced therein. But whether such truths can replace the prevalent and mistaken belief that Christianity is somehow the embodiment of Western culture remains to be seen.

A Review of The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt by JR Wright & R Parker

David Myatt

°°°°°°°

The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt
(pdf)
From National Socialism To The Philosophy Of Pathei-Mathos

Available as a Gratis Open Access pdf file this slim volume of 55 pages is by the authors of The Mystic Philosophy Of David Myatt (1) which was published last year and which provided a reasonably comprehensive – and currently the only available – analysis of Myatt’s philosophy of pathei-mathos, which analysis is no easy feat since Myatt himself admits that he is “aware that the ‘philosophy’ of pathei-mathos, as described in works such as The Numinous Way of Pathei-Mathos and scattered in numerous other essays is not expounded as clearly and precisely as it could and perhaps should be.” (2)

The first part of The Uncertitude Of Mr Myatt deals with Myatt’s criticism of National Socialism and Hitler, spread as that criticism was over a period between 2010 and 2012. The authors use the same methodology as in their The Mystic Philosophy Of David Myatt, which is to provide extensive and relevant quotations from Myatt’s works and then comment on them.

This approach illustrates not only how Myatt’s thinking evolved as he developed and refined his Numinous Way during those years, but also the criteria he employed; in the process also revealing Myatt’s detailed understanding of National Socialism and the interesting fact that his criticism was framed by the pagan spirituality of ancient Greece, that is, in terms of hubris, the classical Fates (Moirai) and the Ἐρινύες. In an illuminating footnote the authors write that Myatt “expresses in his intellectual way the irony, the tragedy” by placing in context the Greek quotation the philosopher Martin Heidegger used in his 1933 speech at the University of Freiburg.

The second part deals with Myatt’s latest book – Classical Paganism And The Christian Etho – and while it is a useful summary of that book there is no detailed analysis of Myatt’s assumptions and conclusions. For example, whether or not Myatt is correct in his statement that the ethics of Greek and Roman paganism can be summarized in the phrase καλὸς κἀγαθός, or whether or not Homer’s Odyssey is “redolent of the classical paganus ethos”, and whether or not Christian ethics are indeed based on “the example of the life of Jesus of Nazareth as depicted in the Gospels.”

The second part also does not in our view unequivocally answer the question that the authors asked at the end of part one, which was whether that book by Myatt marks “a return to his earlier folk culture”, with that folk culture being – in their words – “”mostly but not always just his ‘ethical National Socialism’ of Reichsfolk with the term ‘folk culture’ replacing the term ‘national socialism’ and with references to Hitler and the Third Reich removed.” All they say in answer is that “there are no such links” to and nothing redolent of “Myatt’s old ‘folk culture’ world-view.”

Well over half the book is taken up with four old essays by Myatt, the most interesting of which is Three O’clock One English Morning – written in 2010 – in which he gives details both of his motivation as a National Socialist and the tactics and strategies he employed in his three decades as a violent political activist. These four essays by Myatt, and the one by Ms Wright with the intriguing title David Myatt, Reichsfolk, Esoteric Hitlerism, and Savitri Devi, are however – as the authors claim in their Preface – useful resources for those interested in or researching “the life of David Myatt and of how and why he developed his philosophy of pathei mathos.”

The book, despite its deficiencies, is a useful addition to the literature about Myatt given that Myatt’s life and writings continue to interest certain individuals, with some of those interested influenced by or identifying with various modern Western sub-cultures – such as the Order of Nine Angles, the Occult Left Hand Path, Esoteric Hitlerism, Reichsfolk, NRx – while others (currently, an admittedly miniscule and heretical minority) see in Myatt something Faustian and ineluctably redolent of that strange dichotomy between Light and Dark, Numinous and Sinister, between Apollonian and Dionysian, between The Scholar and The Activist, between The Monk and The Warrior, between Honour and Dishonour, between The Wisdom of Pathei-Mathos and The Reckless Promethean Quest, that lie at the heart of – which are – the ethos and the mythoi of the culture of the West.

The Fourth Reich

odal3

Editorial Note. Republished here is the Introduction to the comprehensive Constitution of The National-Socialist Reich which David Myatt circulated in the late 1990s when he was involved with and producing propaganda for Combat 18. The Introduction is a précis of National-Socialist ideals and beliefs.

Although no author is given, it is widely believed that Myatt himself was the author given the occurrence of such themes as ‘the numinous’ and the emphasis placed on honour, with the Constitution itself being one of the most detailed contemporary expositions of National-Socialism and thus regarded as the theoretical basis for the Fourth Reich; that is for the Western Imperium theorized by F.P. Yockey, and also by Myatt in his 1980s text Vindex: Destiny Of The West, available here: https://regardingdavidmyatt.wordpress.com/myatt-vindex-destiny-of-the-west/.

While many of Myatt’s NS writings are idealistic, often propagandistic, and thus vague on practical specifics, the Constitution of The National-Socialist Reich gives precise details regarding the practical implementation of Myatt’s ‘revisionist version’ of National Socialism: from the economy, to the type of government, to the judiciary to foreign policy.

How realistic such theorized practical implementations would be were a National Socialist or neo-fascist movement ever to obtain State power is another question, especially as many of those theorized implementations are exceedingly idealistic in a typical Myattian way. Nevertheless, and insofar as we are aware, no other contemporary neo-nazi document goes into such practical detail thus making it a valuable resource for those studying or interested in neo-nazi ideology, in extremism and/or in the life of Mr Myatt. The complete Constitution is available here: https://regardingdavidmyatt.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/myatt-constitution-fourth-reich.pdf

°°°°°

The Constitution of the NS Reich exists to create, maintain and advance the cultural, social, political, and economic institutions of a society based on National-Socialist ideals and principles: ideals and principles which represent the honourable aspirations of National-Socialists world-wide.

National-Socialist Government

The purpose of a National-Socialist Government is to protect, maintain, advance and enhance in a positive and noble way, the people, their culture, their way of life, their separate racial identity, and the land where those people dwell.

The Form of Government in National-Socialism

According to National-Socialism, government does not exist to impose the domination of one individual or group over others for the benefit or purpose of that individual or group. Rather, government represents the collective political ideal and will of a people who share a common culture, a common outlook, and a common racial heritage.

A government must take an organized form in order to begin the process of social, intellectual, spiritual and ideological evolution towards the final goal, which National-Socialism perceives to be continuing the work of Nature. The purpose of the Constitution is to establish and make real the objectives of the National-Socialist movement and to create conditions conducive to the development of individuals in accordance with the noble and idealistic values of National-Socialism.

Thus the Constitution abolishes all forms of intellectual, economic and social tyranny, and aims to return the destiny of the people to the people themselves in order to completely overthrow and do away with all types of oppression and injustice.

In creating, on the basis of National-Socialist philosophy and ideology, the political infrastructures and institutions that are the foundation of society, only the honourable and noble will assume the responsibility of governing and administering the new National-Socialist community. Legislation setting forth regulations for the administration of society will be based upon the concepts of personal honour and duty to the folk before self-interest.

In particular, the aim of a National-Socialist government is to encourage the noble change and further evolution of human beings in such a way that they progress upward towards a more noble way of living and the establishment of a noble and just order. This involves creating favourable conditions for the emergence and blossoming of the innate nobility of individuals, and encouraging and developing their talents and abilities, so that the numinous dimensions of the human being are manifest and made real, thus enabling the creation of a new, and higher, civilization. This goal cannot be attained without the active and willing participation of all members of society in the process of social, cultural, political and spiritual development.

Accordingly, the Constitution provides the basis for such participation by all members of society at all stages of the political and social decision-making process on which the destiny of the community depends. In this way during the struggle towards the new civilization, each individual will be involved in, and responsible for, the growth, advancement, and leadership of society. In this willing and committed involvement lies the realization of the noble ideal of fulfilling our noble Destiny as human beings, in accord with the laws of Nature: that is, in harmony with our fellow human beings and in harmony with the other life with which we share this planet which is our home.

The Economy is a Means, Not an End

In respect of the economy, the fundamental principles will be the fulfilment of the material needs of the members of the community in the context of the good of the community and the good of the land itself.

This principle contrasts with other economic systems, where the aim is concentration and accumulation of wealth and the making of profit. In materialist schools of thought, the economy is an end in itself, so that it comes to be not only a subversive, decadent and tyrannizing factor in the life of the community, but also the destroyer of Nature: a destroyer of what is numinous, and thus the destroyer of what is important for our humanity. For National-Socialism, the economy is a means, and one which is be employed in a noble way to ensure the well-being of both the community and of the land itself, on which the community depend not only for sustainence but equally important for what is numinous.

It is one of the duties of a National-Socialist government to provide all members of the community with equal and appropriate opportunities, to provide them with work, and to satisfy their essential needs, so that their basic well-being is assured.

Woman and the Constitution

Through the creation of a National-Socialist social infrastructure, it is essential that women should regain their natural rights and duties, considering the commercial, social, and political exploitation that they suffered under other political systems.

The family is the fundamental unit of society and the foundation for the noble growth of human beings. Compatibility of husband and wife with respect to belief, ideals, culture and racial heritage, is the prime consideration in the establishment of a family. It is the duty of the National-Socialist government to provide the necessary services and structures for the attainment of this goal.

The necessity and importance of the family in the life of the community and in the creation of a better, more noble, way of life, gives women special rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities in a National-Socialist society. Not only does a woman thus recover her special, momentous and precious function of motherhood – the nurturing of noble and honourable human beings – she also assumes a pioneering social role and becomes the companion of her man in all areas of life. Given the heavy and noble responsibilities that woman thus assumes, she is accorded great respect in a National-Socialist society.

A New Army

In the formation and equipping of the country’s defence forces, attention must be paid to honour, nobility and the idealistic principles of National-Socialism.

Accordingly, the Armed Forces are to be organized on a National-Socialist basis, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the community, but also for fulfilling the noble mission of creating a new civilization where nobility, personal honour and reverence for Nature exists. That is, they will also be responsible for undertaking the National-Socialist mission to the rest the world

The Judiciary in the Constitution

The judiciary is of vital importance for safeguarding the rights of the people in accordance with the principles of National-Socialism, and for safeguarding National-Socialism itself. Provision has therefore been made for the creation of a judicial system based on the ideal of personal honour, and operated by just and noble judges who have proven themselves to be both fair and honourable.

Executive Power and the Leadership Principle

Considering the particular importance of the executive power in implementing the laws and ordinances of National-Socialism for the sake of the community, and considering also its vital role in the attainment of a new civilization, the executive power must work toward the creation of National-Socialist society. Consequently, the confinement of the executive power within any kind of complex and inhibiting system that delays or impedes the attainment of this goal is rejected. Therefore, the system of bureaucracy, the result and product of old forms of government, will be removed, so that an executive system based upon the leadership principle can be created.

Mass-Communication Media

The mass-communication media (radio, television, cinema, newspapers and so on) must serve the cause of National-Socialist culture and adhere to the National-Socialist principles of honour, reason, duty to the folk, and the pursuit of excellence. To this end, the media can and should be used as a forum for a reasoned and balanced encounter of different ideas, but must refrain from the diffusion and propagation of decadent ways of life, and anything which is irrational, dishonourable, ignoble or which undermines the duty individuals have to their folk.


Concerning Reichsfolk

Editorial Note: Given numerous requests over the years for interviews, for personal meetings, for contact details, and for information about Reichsfolk other than what has already been made publicly available, RS has submitted the following statement to clarify the matter. Until recently Reichsfolk maintained an irregularly monitored contactable e-mail address which was sometimes relayed to those who displayed an interest and which was primarily used to explain the nature of Reichsfolk, as described in the following statement. This e-mail address, however, was suspended by the e-mail provider for ‘violation of their terms of service’ and, in the foreseeable future, Reichsfolk will remain publicly un-contactable.

°°°°°

While Reichsfolk is “a social, educational, cultural, and spiritual, movement based upon and dedicated to disseminating the noble principles of ethical, non-racist, National-Socialism,” {1} it is not a movement – political or otherwise – seeking to publicly recruit members or to continually distribute propaganda or to have a public face. Its commitment is to personally, directly, introduce individuals to the civilized reality of National-Socialism, and to strive to implement the idealism of National-Socialism in practical ways. The former means being clandestine; the latter means individuals and families, on their own or in very small numbers, living in a way consistent with National-Socialist ideals with no outward show of or profession of National-Socialist beliefs, and with this sometimes involving a family, or a few families, living in a usually rural environment as a ‘family community’ or as a kindred of two or more families. In both cases intrusion by ‘outsiders’ – for whatever reason, political or otherwise, and from whatever motive – is considered undesirable.

In regard to Reichsfolk literature, sufficient has been produced {1}{2} for others to understand what has been termed ‘non-racist National-Socialism’ and to, if inspired, form their own ‘family community’ or kindred. Which independent, unconnected, formations and their growth over the years and the generations is how Reichsfolk envisages its ideals – and thus a modern National-Socialism – will be gradually implemented in these times (i) of overt persecution of those publicly espousing National-Socialism, and (ii) of overt persecution of those who either question the veracity of what has become known as ‘the Shoah’ or who believe it is a myth, as we do.

Re-discovering Western Paganism

Whenever the term ‘western paganism’ is written or heard, in our contemporary societies, there is tendency for many readers or listeners to conjure up either images of ancient ‘superstitious barbarians’ offering sacrifices to various gods such as Odin, or images of modern devotees – of what has been termed ‘contemporary paganism’ and ‘neopaganism’ – in robes conducting or attending romanticized rituals and ceremonies such as those now associated with the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.

In this essay, however, in referring to Western paganism we are referring to a particular and spiritual ethos – to a distinguishing character, or nature, or ‘spirit’ – germane to European lands and thus to ‘the West’, where by ‘spiritual’ is meant concerning what is considered to be, intuitively or otherwise, numinous, and/or concerning those forces or powers which are believed to be, or which may, determine our fate, wyrd, destiny and thus which may bring good fortune or misfortune to us, our family, and to our communities.

Hence, when writing about ‘the West’ we are not writing about the nations of the modern West and the life-styles and politics evident in such modern nations as the United States and Britain. What is meant is the culture and the civilization of and associated with European lands (and with what are now our former colonies or émigré lands) embodied and manifest as that culture and civilization was and is in the paganism of classical Greece and Rome; in the ritual practices and beliefs of North European lands such as Scandinavia and ancient Britain; in Greco-Roman art; in classical – and European folk – music; in the philosophy of the likes of Aristotle; in allegories such as those of Faust and myths such as King Arthur, Wotan, and the Valkyries; in the Greco-Roman mysticism of the Corpus Hermeticum, and in modern science and technology.

That is, we are writing about a particular culture of a particular people; of indigenous Europeans, among whose descendants are people of such lands as are now named Greece, Italy, Britain, Germany, Spain, France, Scandinavia, Poland, Russia, etcetera.

Part of this ancestral Western, this ancestral European, culture is a particular and spiritual ethos, and one which the term Western paganism correctly describes, with this particular paganism having its roots in Ancient Greece and Rome and thus being different, in ethos and in practise, from what is currently known concerning, for example, such religious practices and beliefs as that of ancient Germanic tribes. This ‘Greco-Roman’ paganism is the paganism of Homer, Hesiod, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Aristotle, Seneca, and Cicero; a paganism that is pragmatically spiritual whose foundation is the rationalization that certain deeds were wise and certain other deeds unwise, with such unwise deeds – such hubris, ὕβρις – upsetting that natural balance of the Cosmos (κόσμος) and thus liable (according to ancestral tradition) to cause misfortune. Thus did Sophocles express a truth of this tradition when he wrote that “hubris is the genesis of tyrants” since tyrants invariably bring misfortune upon the people and, eventually, upon themselves and – quite often – on their descendants. In addition, and importantly, elegance, the beautiful (τὸ καλόν) as well as excellence (arête, ἀρετή) and nobility (τὸ ἀγαθόν) were all associated with those who did what was considered wise and balanced (μέσος, in Aristotle).

This is the ethos, the pragmatic spirituality, and the notion of balance, harmony, elegance, and of beauty, which infuses the culture and the civilization of Ancient Greece and Rome, and which culture so enthused those Europeans – artists, scholars, educators, potentates, and others – who from the 14th century on brought about the Renaissance and which Renaissance, which re-discovery of the culture of ancient Greece and Rome, gave birth to and infused our Western ‘Faustian’ civilization.

A Pagan Renaissance

This Renaissance, however, did not in any significant way include a practical return to classical paganism. Instead of giving rise to a new, an evolved, pagan ethos – and thus dispensing with the notion of anthropomorphic deities interfering in the lives of human beings – it resulted in only minor changes to the governing religious ethos manifest as that was in Christianity with its quite un-classical, rather stark, notions of Hell-Fire, Damnation, Sin, and Prudery. In other words, the governing spirituality continued to be Hebraic, derived from the Old Testament as amended by the ‘new covenant’ of Jesus of Nazareth.

While laudable, the attempt in recent times by some Europeans to rediscover the pagan ethos of their ancestors – exemplified in certain (but not all) neopagan groups and weltanschauungen – and thus distance themselves from Hebraic spirituality, is not and never can be, in our view, effective in reconnecting us to the ethos of the West for two reasons. First, because such attempts (at least so far) do not exemplify, do not manifest, the spiritual ethos of the West, founded as that is on the culture and spirituality of ancient Greece and Rome. Second, because they generally do not take into account how the ethos of the West has itself been distorted by a Hebraicism that is not only spiritual but is now, and has been for over a century, cultural.

This cultural Hebraicism is a mode of thinking and action in which Hebrews – ancient and modern – and their beliefs, and those of their followers and disciples, are taken as the type, the moral ideal, to be aspired to and lauded. In the case of ancient Hebrews and their beliefs, the type, the ideal is evident in the Bible (both Old and New Testaments), and in latter-day interpretations of the Bible. In the case of modern Hebrews and their disciples, the type, the ideal, derives from (a) the dogma of ‘equality of races’ – ultimately derived from Marxism, sociology, and what has been termed ‘social anthropology’, with the belief being that all ethnicities have the same abilities, intelligence, potential, and human character – and from (b) the religious-like remembrance of and compulsory teaching regarding the Shoah, together with a hypocritical championing of ethnic awareness and ancestral traditions for all ethnicities except native European (‘White’) peoples, which ethnic awareness of, and its promotion among, native European peoples is considered ‘hatred’, ‘racist’, ‘extremist’ and is increasing censored and outlawed in the lands of the West with the Hebraic reasoning being that such ethnic awareness of, and its promotion among, native European peoples gave rise to colonialism, to fascism and National Socialism and thus to the Shoah – which must “never be forgotten” – with no Western country ever allowed to again make ancestral European beliefs, and the Western ethos, the raison d’être of a nation-State.

In respect of rediscovering the pagan spirituality of the West a fundamental problem has been a lack of knowledge among those interested in what, exactly, that spirituality is. A problem exacerbated by pre-existing translations of some of the ancient works knowledge of which is necessary in order to understand that spirituality. Works such as the Oedipus Tyrannus and the Antigone by Sophocles, the Agamemnon by Aeschylus, and the mystical texts of the Corpus Hermeticism.

Which problem of translation is why, for example, the Antigone of Sophocles has become to be regarded (by all but a handful of scholars) as some kind of ancient morality tale or as just a drama about a conflict between two strong and different characters, Antigone and Creon; why Oedipus Tyrannus is regarded (by all but a handful of scholars) as a morality tale about “incest”, and why the texts of the Corpus Hermeticism are regarded as imbued with a Christian-like mysticism and as having been influenced by both the Old and New Testaments.

Yet properly understood in the necessary cultural context, the Antigone, as one translator noted in the Introduction to his translation,

“deals with the relation between mortals and gods. The work is an exploration and explanation of the workings of the cosmos, and the answers given express the distinctive ancient Greek ‘outlook’ or ethos. This ethos is pagan, and its essence may be said to be that there are limits to human behaviour; that some conduct is wise, some conduct is unwise. Unwise conduct invites retribution by the gods: it can and often does result in personal misfortune, in bad luck.” {1}

Ditto in respect of the Oedipus Tyrannus, and the Agamemnon of Aeschylus. Regarding the Corpus Hermeticism, as we have previously mentioned, certain new translations restore

“these texts to the Western pagan tradition and make them relevant to our times when Western culture and our classical, Greco-Roman, and pagan heritage is increasingly subsumed in schools and elsewhere by other, non-Western, cultures and religions, with it now being politically incorrect to point out that Western culture with its Greco-Roman pagan heritage has profoundly changed the world for the better and is arguably superior to all other cultures past and present.” {2}

That is, translations of important classical texts are now available which, when studied together, enable us to appreciate and understand the classical, pagan, ethos and thence the ethos of the West itself. {3}

Which understanding might – probably should – lead us, or someone, to develop a new, an evolved, pagan weltanschauung which does not involve anthropomorphic deities but instead is based on a new ontology regarding our relation, as sentient beings, to Being, to the Cosmos, rather than to ‘God’ or to some ‘gods’. Something perhaps prefigured in Greek texts such as these with their reasoned, pragmatic, and often quite warrior-like, spirituality:

The Muse shall tell of the many adventures of that man of the many stratagems
Who, after the pillage of that hallowed citadel at Troy,
Saw the towns of many a people and experienced their ways:
He whose vigour, at sea, was weakened by many afflictions
As he strove to win life for himself and return his comrades to their homes.
But not even he, for all this yearning, could save those comrades
For they were destroyed by their own immature foolishness
Having devoured the cattle of Helios, that son of Hyperion,
Who plucked from them the day of their returning. {4}

°°°°°

You should listen to [the goddess] Fairness and not oblige Hubris
Since Hubris harms unfortunate mortals while even the more fortunate
Are not equal to carrying that heavy a burden, meeting as they do with Mischief.
The best path to take is the opposite one: that of honour
For, in the end, Fairness is above Hubris
Which is something the young come to learn from adversity. {5}

°°°°°

This person, whom I praise, never ceased to believe that the gods delight in respectful deeds just as much as in consecrated temples, and, when blessed with success, he was never prideful but rather gave thanks to the gods. He also made more offerings to them when he was confident than supplications when he felt hesitant, and, in
appearance, it was his habit to be cheerful when doubtful and mild-mannered when successful. {6}

°°°°°

Clytaemnestra:

Because of these grievous things, no one should invoke a fatal curse upon
Nor turn their wroth toward, Helen
As if she was some man-killer who alone destroyed
The lives of those many Danaan men
By having wrought such a festering wound […]

The wife of this corpse presents herself here
As that most ancient fierce Avenger.
It is Atreus, he is of that cruel feast,
Who, in payment for that, has added to his young victims
This adult one […]

But do not suppose that his killing was ignoble
For did he not by his cunning set Misfortune upon this family? {7}

°°°°°

Creon:

So even then you dared to violate these laws?

Antigone:

It was not Zeus who proclaimed them to me,
Nor did she who dwells with the gods below – the goddess, Judgement –
Lay down for us mortals such laws as those.
Neither did I suppose that your edicts
Had so much strength that you, who die,
Could out-run the unwritten and unchanging
Customs of the gods: for the life of these things
Is not only of yesterday or today, but eternal,
No one remembering their birth. {8}

All of which explains why we love to also quote what a certain English poet wrote in 1873 CE: “the separation between the Greeks and us is due principally to the Hebraistic culture we receive in childhood.” All those tall tales from the Bible about various Hebrew folk…

Concerning The Vindex Mythos

David Myatt

Editorial Note: We publish here (in pdf format) an interesting and informative essay about David Myatt’s Vindex mythos, which Reichsfolk essay – with its study of Myatt’s Vindex: Destiny of the West and his Mythos of Vindex – shows that its basis is honor, an appreciation of the numinous, an understanding of the Magian distortion that has afflicted Western civilization, and an affirmation that National Socialist Germany was “fundamentally an instinctive and natural reaction to the dominance of the Magian ethos, and represented a mostly unconscious expression of the numinous, honourable, warrior ethos.”
