    Runes weren't MADE for carving messages into pieces of wood; reading and writing wasn't as popular, because paper wasn't as easy to come by.

    The original Latin Script looked almost akin to Futhark, because it too was made with sticks and scratches.

    Rome was invited to a lot of industry, because of the trade, and that expanded the usage of every aspect of their culture, from writing to art.

    In Old English, "Rune" meant secret. I believe it was a "secret" because of that old story about the futhorc. But nevertheless, I think it shouldn't remain a secret any longer, at least for us who want to understand the rune. In a sense, I believe that it should remain a secret for outsiders, multiculturalist thieves and cultural appropriators.

    For any official decree or something of great importance, the rune shall
    be known, because it is a lost rite of passage for our people.

    Whether you interpret the myths account of how the Runes came into existence as a literal account or a symbolic account, really doesn't matter.
    What matters is that the Runes exist. They either came into existence from a ritual by Odin, or through the folk collective unconsciousness of our ancestors. By either of these accounts the Runes came into existence communicating much more than just an alphabetic system!
    The Runes are alive not only from their cosmic creations, but alive with thousands of years of our ancestors infusing the Runes with their identities and ideals. Bottom line is the Runes are apart of our spiritual identity.
    If this living part of our spiritual identity was used by the masses as another alphabetic system it would not only destroy the Runes, it would sever our connection to one of the last remaining tools available for us to directly communicate with our ancestors folk collective unconsciousness.
    CAUTION TO ALL: Please spend some time speaking and listening to the Runes before you just use them for their phonetic values, or you may end up clouding their ability to communicate their spiritual value to you.
    ALU!!!
    Indeed, they are a very important spiritual tool. I could suggest that we use Latin script for communication, while use Runes for very important occasions or decrees, as I just said. I wrote this post before you did, but I have to wait for moderator to approve it.
    Anyway, I don't exactly think we should restrict rune usage to religion, as many secular people want to use runes for writing; I know you probably won't agree, but it's for the sake of dividing us from outsiders; and in a way, I think it would help us to achieve a more valuable identity, rather than just a valuable product.


    To Žoreišar :
    I think I have somewhat perfected a liquid (non-scratchy) version of rune characters that could be used online/real life.

    I for one use runes to write my personal journals. If nothing else, it keeps peeping eyes from knowing what I wrote as most people have no idea what they are.

    Do they have spiritual meanings as well? Yes, but Roman letters do also, just most people don't know it. Doesn't change that those meanings exist.

    Not unlike the fact that a standard deck of cards is nothing but the minor arcanum of the tarot, usually with two fools (jokers) from the major arcanum, and yet most people have no idea.

    Smile Runic shorthand

    Hi there
    I am a P.A. (personel assistant) and all the phone messages I recieve I write down in runes (as most of them are private messages) so no one else can understand them, unless they can read runes that is, but even then they would have to access the messages. My boss thinks this is great as it adds an extra level of security and most people in my job use shorthand anyway.

    Well, the hebrew language and alphabet in nowadays Israel is a quite good example for a renaissance of cultural heritage. Well, the daily use of the Runes would be a little bit hard thing nowadays, however we could decorate own enviroment with them. F.e. in Hungary the hungarians have an own ancient alphabet what they used on pieces of wood too. Nowadays they use to erect city sign with that alphabet and moreover they use that on/over doors.

    I think we should copy their habit to revive the Runes.

    I voted "nay" meaning that we shouldnt write in Runes on a daily basis on anything and everything; just imagine some wiggers tagging in Runes! We should keep it sacred to ourselves and only use them in rituals and on our own property, nothing public where there are Skraelings out and about ready to abuse and deface.

    Bu the same logic, shouldn't we stop propegating anything Germanic? After all, the negroes might get a hold of it, too...

    Hmmm, should we write in runes instead of the Latin alphabet?

    Hmmm, that is a hard one. I am illiterate in runes so I really can't comment, or vote--but then being totally ignorant of the subject has never stopped me before. So I would think that if runic script can do everything Latin alphabetic script can do, why not? As long as the more difficult, complicated concepts could be written and expressed in runes as well as the simple, more basic concepts, then it could be done. It would present great practical problems in educating the general public in reading and writing runes--so many of the poor fools are not even literate in the Latin alphabet.

    In my opinion, we shouldn't "return" to use runes in everday life. I don't think the usage of runes as an alphabet for the common people was widespread among our ancestors, especially considering that only a small minority was literate at all.
    The runic alphabets were mostly used to carve short messages pertaining to religion and rituals in wood or stone.
    Some sounds in many modern Germanic languages cannot even be expressed in runes, such as the ä, ö, ü umlauts in my own mother tongue.

    The Latin alphabet is far more simple and easier to handle on paper, also because it enables you to write most letters continuously, whereas many runes will require you to break the flow of your writing.

    You can compare it to the introduction of the, nominally French, Metric system in Germany. One could argue that this system is utterly foreign and that its introduction was wrong, especially considering the French–German hereditary enmity.
    However, I wouldn't want to return to the system of feet and cubits because it's simply impractical, especially in regards to the complex processes in modern engineering, which require a system that's easy to handle and logical.

    You forgot to quote the rest of my statement thus giving my reason why I stated what I meant:

    That's what I do as well, a good way to hide personal notes from nosy people.

    This bothers me too to be honest. Concerning Umlaute, I just write ae instead of ä, etc. The Latin alphabet is definitely more convenient for every-day writing.
