    The problematics of the Preservation

    Quote Originally Posted by Aeternitas View Post
    I began taking an interest in such topics starting the age of 13. My interest in Germanic topics coincided with an interest in history, conspiracy theories, the occult, dark and the gothic scene. I watched paranormal and science documentaries and amongst my favorite TV shows was the X Files -- I particularly remember it due to the conspiracy theory claims. I was convinced there was a real conspiracy and the government did its best to hide certain aspects from the general populace. I started looking up more of this material in books and on the Internet, and found many conspiracy theories. I spent days in my room reading, the topic fascinated me. Of course for a 13 year old this felt adventurous; I thought I was onto something and wanted to understand the reasons behind those conspiracies. I didn't really believe in stuff like an alien colonization of Earth, that much I discerned as a bit too sci-fi; so I wanted to find an alternate explanation. That's also when my interest in horror movies began, I started exploring the mysterious, supernatural and the dark side of the human condition through such movies.

    I was also reading tons of history books and decided that I would major in history when I grew up; this actually came to be true, I do hold a degree in history. 13-15 was an age I spent learning new things in general and was an avid reader. As I was starting to consider myself more independent, I chose my own personal style which was dark/goth; Nightwish was among the first bands that inspired my style. I wore exclusively black, conservative clothes, let my hair grow longer and dyed it black; black eyeliner etc. The Gothic genre is incidentally largely European/Germanic themed, I also took an interest in the Southern American literature and Anglo-American (political) writers. George Orwell's 1984 was one of the first political books I read and which opened my eyes and mind about certain things. German philosophy, humanism and idealism were also influential sources. I read Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche but also some Descartes and Rousseau. At the same time I had a passion for German poetry, particularly Goethe, Rilke & Lenau, what pursued me to also study Germanistics.

    Between 16 and 20-21 I considered myself a reactionary. With 18-19 I started taking part in online communities; I was 19 when I joined Skadi, I'd become a moderator shortly after and by my 20th I was an administrator. I was also involved in moderating and/or administrating other similar or off-shoot projects such as The Nordish Portal, Stirpes, Forum Germania and the Althing.

    As I took a wider interest in politics and met various people who were politically involved and had more experience with the "scene", I became more progressive and accepting of a wider range of political beliefs. One of the topics that first took my interest was pan-Germanism. Over the years I gravitated more towards the values and ideals of the 1848 German revolutionaries. Concepts such as Die Gedanken Sind Frei influenced my more matured political thoughts.

    But I would also learn of the ramifications & consequences and particularly negative aspects of getting involved and would learn where certain stereotypes about some groups of people and elites came from. This on the one hand discouraged me, on the other hand prompted me to become even more freedom and truth oriented.

    One of the things I feel fortunate about is that we live in an age of information. Despite the primitive acts of censoring and producing thought criminals, people are becoming gradually more and more informed of what's happening around them. Although it currently looks more promising for the US than Europe, situations like the refugee crises begin to have significant political repercussions.
    Aeternitas, we are the same Soul. My first books were a Holy Bible for Children and the Legend of the early Romans. These two books determine my later lifes. I have an attitude for History, I have read about the Antiquity, the Medieval and the Modern Era too. The German heritage have comen from my family, hence side by side I have started to learn everything what is German, the history, the legends and the bloody Modern Era with the collapse of the 1500 years old Empire what established the Frankish Chlodvig. I absolutely like to read about Ancient Greek, Roman history and Mythology. The picture of a Man what showed these ancient books that have becomen my example.

    In my 15–18 I have met the Gothic language with in a book. That was that holy minute, that "Oh, my God!" the 1700 years old language of my ancestors (the Goth was very closely to the basic Proto-German). I red that "Atta unsar, thu in Himinam, weihne namo thein" as translate word by word "Father unser, du in Himmel, weihne Namen dein". This was may be the first point that I should preserv this beautiful, ancient civilization. I red about the Old Germanic Gods, the Judaism, the Islam. I have a great interesting to the religion and the transcendental. I red the Al-Qu'ran twice. Hence I could understood that these religion beliefs in the same God or the several Avatars of the God like as Christus or Khrisna. Side by side I had still outstanding Catholic.

    After the Gymnasium I was in the Catholic University. I had good head, side by side I have red the most of the stuff in my free time under the Gymnasium, hence that was easy to me. There was a moment that my illness what have tortured me since 17 years old, that has gone back. Side by side I red under my own way in the University and I started to find why collapsed the first superpower of the World. I found often in the Internet and I has found a Heathen site where I met the name of Nietzsche. Earlier in the Basic School I red parts from the Nietzsche's Zarathustra, but I think that I do not understand him truly. However when I was 23 years ago, I could understand Nietzsche's very composit sentences. Firstly, I red the Antichristus and it gave the answer for my question why did the Roman Empire collapsed. The Christians. The Christians. Secondly I red the Will of Might. That was the time when I has broken with the Christendom. In that Heathen site I red horribile thing about how the eary Christians destroyed my favourite Antique World and how pushed to the darkness the common men in the rise of the Medieval. The teachers and the students could see everything, that I red Nietzsche in my free time between the colloquiums and they mocked me. One of the teachers said in the middle of a Seminarium targeting for me, that "here was a teacher who claimed the Church as a Mafia Organisation, well he got the payment. Now that teacher is not here". This was the point where the Church pushed out me. I used to go to one of central Catholic Temple of Budapest every Sunday and there mon-priests made to sense to me that that Temple not is a place for me anymore. This was my legend with the Holy Church.

    Aftermath now I do not think that the Christian destroyed the Empire and I have written about here in an other post. Shortly the Roman Empire collapsed by the corrupt bureacracy, the Germanization of the Roman Army, the Climatic change that the grainbasket of Nort-Africa and Egypt could no more eated the Army and the Civil population. The Barbarian invasion was just the Touché. However the Christians executed the Classical Antique Civilization and our Old Germanic Civilization too.

    Later I had an accident (what about I have written too) and I strongly believe that God himself saved me. Thus I started to seek God, but I could not back to the Catholics, hence I converted to another confession of my ancestors, the Lutheran. I spent a quite year with them, I was in every Sunday in the Church, I sang in the choir too. However I have written about that I love the religion history and I start continue to learn about the History of the Christianism. Side by side I have started to read about more the beleif of our ancestors. And one day I asked for me, why do we worship a Middle-Eastern Jewish (I am not Anti-Semite, Jesus was Jewish) reform rabbi who confrontated with the mainstream Judaism, hence the Jewish High priests executed him (with the assistance of the Romans as Judea was occupied by Roman forces).? This is not our religion. In the Medieval the village was full of pagans (paganus means villager in latin). The full Christianisation of Europe was ready in the 1600s as the Protestant killed all the heathen medicine men/women and heathen priests.

    Now here goes the Neo-Paganism with a great problem. The only heathen sources are not German (expect the Niebelung Lied, the Hildebrand Lied what rather legends, the only one is the Merseburger Zauberspruch), but these are North-Germanic. The stock is common, but the North-German Religion is not really the same with the Old German religion. The another problem and I use to see upon me, that we or our parents are Christians. The picture what is a religion is strongly Christian our mind. We cannot rip of own heart from the Christentum as under at most 1500 at least in North 400 year the places of Europe have been Christian.

    Now I was not in the Church many month ago and I carry on the beliefs our ancestor, however I always syncretise with this the Christian morality, the Christian praying. I am not a prophet, but we have so many few source about the Old Germanic Heathendum, that we must borrow some thing from the Christians. The Christian morality is clearly higher level than the world of Sagas where was a deathmatch as by the smallest insult everybody got own sword.

    Side by side with my believe, I am a rebell as the leaders of this country, Hungary, decided that this is a Christian country. I am a German in a foreign land where the utmost religion is the Catholicism. Here is to preserve our language, our kind, our legends and believes that a swimm against a stream.

    My interest in Germanic preservation dates from a number of years ago, when I began to research my genealogical background and discovered some intriguing, though objectively unlikely, family connections to a certain German politician who rose to prominence in the 1930s and 1940s.

    No, not that one.

    Before that, I took my ancestry for granted, having been brought up in a family where listening to my father's old Erich Kleiber recordings of the Beethoven symphonies form one of my earliest memories, along with my astonished impressions as a child upon my first reading of the Old Norse Vǫluspá and the rest of the Poetic Edda.

    Since then, I've discovered the vast riches of German philosophy, music and opera in considerable detail, all the while paying close attention to the various political programs calling, however indirectly, for the systematic genocide of Germanic culture and heritage worldwide. My interest in the plight of Germany led naturally to an interest in the plight of all Germanics, and later came to include the white races in general - since all of them are under attack by the same adversary.

    Many of the people I like and admire most share a similar regard upon the world. Contrary to what propagandists against our movement might want us and others to believe, I have found most preservationists to be among the most intelligent, compassionate and noble people I have ever met - loyal to their families, to their friends, and to their heritage.

    You might be interested in Positive Christianity and the German Christian movement.

    Yes, I have heard about the Positiv Christianity in the Third Empire and that Hitler was Christian till own death. However the Hitlerist Empire can show the bad side of the Christianity, the 2000 years old Anti-Semitism and the fanatism of a Crusade. F.e. the population of Germany in the first half of the 20th would be atheist or heathen, the World Wars or the Holocaust would happen never. The average German have hear 1000 years ago in the Church, that the Jews are thief, and children killers and moreover they killed the Son of God. In this base it is not a miracle that there grown up people that can make those horrible things under the Holocaust. Moreover an atheist or a heathen go never to the desert or the tajga to die, rather they would kill own leader.

    Hitler was typical eastern style despot since the kings of Assyria of Babylon. That totalitarian system was very ungermanic as a Germanic man like the freedom, the peace, the exploration. Among the Ancient Germanics would live no so long a man like as Hitler or own company whos want take the freedom of the men and whos want enforce the men to fare lands to fight to the nothing. However they fight for a thing for the sick dreams of the insane Caesar of Berlin.

    Hitler should read about his predecessor in the chancellor sear, Otto von Bismarck who could make small and fast wars, moreover Bismarck called for that "Germany would be not the teacher of Europe" as Germany is not strong to dominate Europe. Well, Germany under Wilhelm II and Hitler was not strong to this. However Hitler saw himself a profhet of the German people he was incapable of the ordinary thinking.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."

    I always had an interest in the mythology, spirituality and folklore of my ancestors. From a political perspective, I never really liked multiculturalism. I had a gut feeling about it that it was wrong from the very beginning I experienced it.
    I didn't get into extremism like neonazism and fringe ideologies but I always had a love and respect for my people and country and by extension for other Nordic, Germanic and Western nations.
    So in short it was a natural feeling.
