So, whenever you use any term, it did not suffice to think what did this term once mean, you must look what the term means now. Because you live now.
I do care about Germanics. I think everyday about them, their history, their way of life, as it changed over time. That's all in the past. About the future of Germanics I do not think, because the future I can't know. I think, a wonder can save them.
And then -- I think I told you this already -- there is not much else of a forum left, in this world, I could turn to. I got a computer, and I got a mobile, so, why not use it?
But -- to come back to your point, if there was no internet, no mobile, then I indeed would already have no folk anymore. The people around me are ghostlike, they are zombies, shallow shells. I still remember how it was when I as small, and it isn't so anymore. Now it is, as if they all feel -- if they feel anything at all -- that it is over.
But history is, and always was, unpredictable. And as we have learned, sometimes, one man, THE man, can make the difference.
So, basically, I am waiting for the man.
If someone though was waiting for me, well, I am here!!!

I don’t think any nationalist could be uncritical of his own people, at least not nowadays and not in the West. The average people are at best indifferent to our fate and very survival as a people, culture and race, if not actively supporting the demise.
Blind admiration for our people therefore doesn't help us.
Talking to the latter kind of people is a waste of breath and time. If one encounters such individuals in a discussion and it gets to a point, where it’s obvious that the discussion leads to nothing, if possible, simply break off the discussion.
But for the former sympathetic or indifferent part of one’s people at least, there is still some hope.
What an individual nationalist, who holds himself above them in intellect and behaviour, can do for those of his people, at the least, is this:
But the most important point is: never become bitter, give up and even start to hate all of your people, culture and country. Don’t become an embittered, whining complainer in a closed circle of like people. Because then you have already lost and anything you say and do from then on, is pointless.
Try instead to think of the good qualities of your people, even if they’re already few. Try to think of your (future) children, nieces or nephews. Carry on for them and hold out against all odds with an unmoved interior and peace of mind.
That doesn’t mean, however, one should stupidly be all optimistic but giving up is not an option. This is the original Germanic way of facing a bad fate, stubbornly opposing it, with our without hope, it doesn’t matter to the calmness of the soul.
Goethe has summed this up well, at a time when this spirit was more alive. The best translation I have found of it by German-American Paul Carus:
Mend not our misery,
Set us not free.
Face all hostility,
Preserve your virility
Nor ever yield.
Brings the assistance
Of gods to the field.
In these unpleasant and ignorant days,
Don't ask us for happiness, for tolerance or bliss,
Or the condoning of decadent ways.
Ask us for the fire that is in our hearts.
For that burning word that needs to be sown, that will set the mind of our people aflame.
