    Hello From Limburg (NL)

    I just found Skadi only yesterday and thought I'd check it out.

    I am from South-Limburg, a region in the southern part of the Netherlands, very close to the German border. Since a few years I am an Asatruar and I have been reading a lot about the Nordic-Germanic mythology, religion and history.

    From a political perspective I am neither left, nor right and I am neither a centrist nor an extremist. I strongly believe that, like in Asatru, someone's path should be his or her own. I walk the Northern Path and I want everyone to be and feel free to walk their own.
    And I welcome all who travel along with me, for shorter or longer distances, along that path.

    Heilsa,
    Hrogar

    Welcome from Northern England, by the way that is the best display of political fence-sitting I have ever seen!!

    I am an odinist also, and I know how hard it can be to have a political position and be a pagan, naturally I am to the right, I can't imagine our volkish ancestors seeing negros and muds as our equals. At the same time I don't dislike anybody either (in fact non Europeans are so insignificant to me that I don't really think about them).

    What I really hate are those who go on how much they hate Nazi odinists or some rubbish. Fair enough thats fine, but then the same people are silent of liberal capitalism or socialism, and all there wars of destruction they have brought on the Germanic speaking people.

    Thanks for the welcome and your reaction.

    As for the fence-sitting, I simply believe that left and right wing divisions are silly and obsolete. Socialism, liberalism and all the other isms all have some value, but in my opinion they are just tools. If they fail to be useful, you throw them back in the toolbox.

    I believe blacks and whites are indeed equal, but they are different. And as much right they have for their own place to live, so do we. I dislike the political correctness that says that black pride is ok (which it is), but that a white pride movement focusing on cultural heritage is per definition wrong or (stereotypically) right extremist. That's a flaw in thinking.

    And now I'm in the process of getting off the fence , these are some of my thoughts:
    • I believe the current democracy is failing because of leaders without character and because the lame classical media fail to think outside of accepted popular boundaries.
    • I don't believe in nation-states. These are unnatural judicial constructions which fail to capture the essence of human (modern and archaic) societies. A network of regions would make more sense and would benefit Europe's competitiveness in the world.
    • I think political correctness is still robbing us of our northern European pre-christian heritage. In our schools we learn more about Romans, Egyptians and the three desert-religions than about the actual history of the northern peoples.

    That's it for now, I guess

    Heilsa,
    Hrogar

    Welcome to Skadi forum. About åsatro, our ancestors didnt follow his or her own path, they followed tradition.
    Hope you like the forum.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    @Hersir:
    This personal path does not contradict tradition, since this approach was woven in the tradition. Not having any 'holy scriptures', it was normal to choose your own gods. This choice also differed per region and could even differ per profession.

    Heilsa,

    Welcome Hrogar: Skadi is a very interesting place with a lot of very nice,

    very smart people. (which is a combination one doesn't find to often).

    Are you close to Nijmegen? A friend of mine had a farm on the banks of the

    Waal back in 1976 (my wife and I celebrated the US bicentennial by

    spending the year in Europe) and we spent a wonderful 3 weeks sitting

    on the levee, drinking coffee, and watching the barges going up and down the

    river.

    It's about 90 minutes drive from my home to Nijmegen. But I guess in US terms, that's not really far away.
    Nijmegen is a nice city, although I don't go there often. I spend more time in the Belgium Ardennes and in the German forests. These are actually closer by.
    Well I'm curious about the discussions at Skadi. There's a lot going on here, it seems. I guess I'll just jump in and see what happens.

    Heilsa,
