    Greetings to All

    Warm greetings to the forum.

    I already had started posting a bit and forgot to say hello until now. After lurking for a while I've been very impressed with the atmosphere and quality on this forum, so I decided to join. The morale, civility and sophistication seems very high. It's a positive atmosphere. There is something very hopeful and respectful about the posters here that seems to inspire good discussions.

    As for me I have a lifelong and deep love for both Germanic culture and the European tradition in general. I am mainly oriented towards the arts and culture fields, but also interested in other aspects of our European life and how to preserve it for future generations. I will try do my best to make a small contribution to this very fine forum. Thank you for inspiring me to sign up.

    Welcome Schoenenbourg!

    Could you quench my curiosity and tell us what your main orientation within the arts and culture fields is?

    With kind regards,

    Anlef

    Thank you Anlef. Interests fall mainly within arts/education/pedagogy/music fields. Basically, a lone reactionary in a minefield of post-modern liberals... You are welcome to PM if you would like to discuss more.

    Best regards,
    Schoenenbourg

    Welcome here, Schoenenbourg. I'm seeing you've dual ancestry in your profile. Are you bilingual with Swedish or French? With which of the heritages do you feel closest?

    Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the stay.

    Thank you very much. I like it already

    Culturally & ethnically 100% Swedish protestant, with possibly sometimes a touch of continental conservative/classical outlook or what some would consider aristocratic values.

    Regarding ancestry, maternal side of the family is 100% Swedish dating back to the 1450's at least. Paternal side has central-south French ancestry (Centre, Auvergne, Bourgogne). I have not done as much research there. I'm pro-Germanic with no attachment to Gaul/French/Romance culture, because I consider the Germanic tradition and culture superior and preferable in most aspects. I favour Swiss-style regional sovereignty and I am strongly anti-EU. I try to emphasise the positive aspects of a white European re-awakening conciousness.

    Best regards,
    Schoenenbourg

    Welcome.

    May I ask what a neo-protestant is?

    Thank you!

    The descriptor should perhaps not be taken too literally in my case..., it's a bit tongue in cheek... you can read about neo-protestantism and Adolf Von Harnack here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_von_Harnack

    Still, for me the key parts are: Adolf Von Harnack's point about the anti-judaic, pro-western nature of western Christianity, which I alluded to the other day in another thread. So the term is just my way of signalling a move away from todays over-liberalised multi-culti Swedish church... I also appreciate Adolf Von Harnack's call for freedom to reflect upon and challenge pre-supposed religious dogmas. Many associate Von Harnack with "liberal" theology, I view it more as anti-dogmatic...which may lead the free thinker in many interesting anti-liberal directions.

    Best regards,
    Schoenenbourg
