    Heimfard

    It has been some time since my last visit, and I supposed that such a long space of time dictated a re-introduction, as I am sure many things can change in the space of a year and a month. Many of you who are here will remember me, I imagine; many will not-- since my disappearance there are many, many introductions. Some of them I would like to get to know. Some I would not.

    In March of 2008, I posted this on these forums:
    Quote Originally Posted by The Wagnerian View Post

    I'm an Ásatruar from the East Coast of the United States, presently majoring in History with a concentration on Central and Northern Europe (and a minor in German language as well). I come from a Scottish, Irish, and Austro-German background, my Irish family coming from Donegal ("fortress of the foreigners" i.e. "Vikings" in Gaelic), as a result having a strong Norse influence on their previously pure Gaelic family line. In addition to that, I actually have a copy of my great-great-great-great Grandfather's discharge papers from the Imperial Austrian Armed Forces (he served in the time of the Crimean War). As you can see, I have a lot of personal reasons to be interested in Germanic culture and spirituality.

    I have been studying German for six years now, sharing Martin Heidegger's belief that German is one of the very few languages truly fitted to use in philosophy for its aptitude in handling abstract concepts with a complexity lacking in the Romance tongues.

    As my name might suggest, I follow the art and philosophies of Richard Wagner with an interest bordering on fanaticism and am not afraid to say I believe him to be the greatest composer to have ever lived. I do not, however, agree with his Anti-Semitism and take personal exception to National Socialists for the corruption of der Meisters art for their purposes in the 1930s and '40s.

    I have to admit I was fairly excited to find this site, I had never imagined a non-skinhead community of people with concern for Germanic culture and spirituality existed. My interests in Germanic culture and reasons for being interested in this ancient culture truly are too abounding to enumerate here, but I think this has been a suitably varied introduction. I look forward to talking with fellow Germanicists and Ásatruar here!
    Looking back, I have to say I feel as though I have aged many more years than the actual time that has passed-- such youthful hope and joy, immaturity, in my words.

    I left these boards never (so I thought) to return because of an increasing tension between myself an an overtly racialist, I dare say even skinhead, tendency in the new members I was encountering. I am not sure whether there was an influx from Stormfront or some other childish neo-nazi nest, but it made coming back here and posting less and less enjoyable. Rather than complain or make a scene about it, I just stopped showing up. I felt at the time an explanation of my decision unnecessary; I still think an explanation at that time was unnecessary, but an explanation now perhaps not so. I have had some time to myself, have completed my course of studies, and am entering a new phase in my life. I am not entirely sure what it is that brought me back here-- I have long since relegated the "WE MISS YOU!!" emails to my spambox-- but I was drawn to return.

    To those compatriots and friends, those I respect (though we have disagreed), if you are still here, such as Süüt, CharlesDexterWard, Blood_Axis, and Dagna (there are others whose names I have forgotten), I apologise for my abrupt and unexplained absence. I hope that what drove me from these boards has cleared from the air, and I will find once again the community I found when I first joined that March.

    I should probably re-introduce myself, as some details about myself have changed since I was last here. I remain, as my name suggests, a devotee of Richard Wagner and his musical theories, and I remain antipathetic to National Socialists and white supremacists. I have since my time gone begun to develop a theological foundation for the Germanic Heathenry to which I continue to subscribe, and author a catechism for this faith; I maintain a strong sense of Germanic Folkish awareness, though this has taken a firmer shape since I was last here. I have become more knowledgeable of the Conservative Revolution movement of Weimar Germany, and have adopted the desires of those philosophers and jurists for a New Aristocracy, a New Order. I am specifically focused presently on the study of nationalism in Central Europe-- Germany, Austria, Bohemia, Switzerland, Holland-- and the relationship, á la Weber, of religion and that nationalism.

    I hope to encounter other cultural nationalists and philosophers, for we have much to discuss.

    Hail. I have returned; I hope for some time.

    I'd have welcomed you back if you hadn't used your reintroduction thread as a pretext to insult nationalsocialists. It's a free speech forum here. That means nazis, overtly racialist, and I dare say even skinhead members are just as entitled to post here as liberals are.

    and I remain antipathetic to National Socialists
    Fair enough, the feeling is mutual as regards liberals.

    You make a very sweeping assumption that everyone opposed to National-Socialism is a "liberal". I oppose it on the grounds that it is childish and plebeian, not illiberal. It's the illiberal side of it that I rather like-- the militarism and nationalism in particular.

    That aside, I don't protest Nazis speaking their minds, however I may feel about those minds; when I left, it was because I felt the presence was overwhelming, and the presence of non-racialist, non-National-Socialist persons or persons either apathetic or sympathetic to the Jews was shrinking to such an extent that I no longer found the forum the source of relaxation it had to that point been for me. I simply could not find a discussion worth having that wasn't ruined by some childish Holocaust-denier or other skinhead conspiracy theorist.

    I think you will find I share your disdain for liberals, social democrats, and other proponents of the vague idealisms and falsehoods of "freedom", "equality", and "unalienable rights"; indeed, if we're willing to accept mutual disdain for one another's ideas, I as a Conservative Aristocratist, you as a National-Socialist, I am sure we still have much to discuss.

    Those for whom I have no time are the tinfoil-capped Jew-baiters who take every thread as an opportunity to spout their polemicist nonsense about subjects ranging from 9-11 to the genocide of the Jews at the hands of the Nazi German government and the Polish and Russian citizens (who were by the far the most anti-Semitic and willing collaborators).

    Welcome back, The Wagnerian.
    I wasn't here when you registered initially, but I'm not very fond of national socialists and skinheads either. To each his own preferences I guess.
