A question has been taking shape inside of my mind lately and that question has everything to do with the future of western civilization. We have at this point in time a great division among those who would call themselves Nationalist or Identitarians. The division is on the topic of religion and more importantly what religion should serve our folk as we face a future that with every passing day grows ever more hostile to our continued existence this question cannot be ignored. I personally believe that this is the most pressing question. That from it all other questions arise.
The values and virtues we should hold high, how we conduct our actions, even the things that we should call wrong and intolerable are all to my mind religious questions. A Large section of the Nationalist community then has come to call it self “Christian”. Some of these people see Christianity as a matter of western European civilization and for others not only is it a matter of civilization but also of deeply held faith. Another section of our community has come to identify with the pre-Christian religious tradition native to Europe that finds its expression mostly commonly in the modern religious movement called Asatru. Both lay claim to Europe and the sons and daughters of Europe. Who is right then?
Surely it is true that before Christianity came to Europe we had our own folk ways, stories, religious rites and culture. At the same time it cannot be denied, historically speaking, that Europe was the heart of global Christianity. So then as people concerned with the future of our folk which should we be? Pagan or Christian? I would like to propose an answer that I have not seen talked about anywhere almost as if the idea is not possible, but i believe in to be the historical reality.
Europe and her sons and daughters are both Christian and Pagan. Our pagan past gave birth to such concepts as common law and trial by jury. Our christian past gave us the armies that defended our homeland against the advance of Islam in the middle ages which if successful would have ended European civilization as we know it. Just to name one such example of dual contribution that both of these religions have had on our people. We are in a crisis. In times of crisis what is needed is unity. Not a false unity based on compromise but a unity of Brotherhood and Honor.
