    Uhm, my impression is that the so called 'social media' did the most damage to Skadi. People are crazy about Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other stuff. But times are changing as we speak: More and more people leave FB and don't want to have that information overkill day by day.These people will not vanish from the planet. At some point they may rediscover internet fora and will be shocked about the fact that they can voice their words without a letter restriction.

    We must deal with it: Most people have been dumbed down. Twitter, FB and Instagram reduce the mental horizon of their users to just about two or three sencentes. Everyone spews a few shout-outs and that's it. Many have lost their competencies to write real, lengthy texts and to express their opinion is a sophisticated manner. Or worse: They have never gained that competencies, because they grew up with that shit.

    I can't imagine a Twitter or Instagram nerd to write lengthy texts on fora. This is unknown territory for them. We have to hold our position and wait for the few people who stand out from the masses.
    Loyal to my hate

    I actually think the 'Social media' scourge is far worse even than Leliana describes. We're the generation that still knew and cherished online forums, and were young enough to hop onto the Facebook and Twitter bandwagon as well. The even younger generation has an attention span that is way shorter even, Facebook and Twitter move aside for Snapchat, Instagram and Jodel if you will. Social media is a blessing and a curse at the same time when it comes to spread the word.

    I think there is a place and time for a wide variety of discussion platforms, but we'll have to come to terms with the fact that it'll attract a completely different type of demographic than in the heyday of online forums. I think in heralding Germanic preservation we have a niche and it may work again. I too have noticed a somewhat deteriorating atmosphere though. What always made Skadi strong is that people could have heated debates all they wished, at the end of the day, there was a feeling of cohesion and that we all followed a common cause, so the same people who'd bash their heads in one thread would later unite in the Shoutbox and perhaps share pictures or songs in the more lowbrow threads an hour later. We certainly need to understand again that the 'right' or 'preservationist spectrum' is just that, a spectrum, and that there's a whole deal of legitimate opinions and approaches within. The "with us or against us" mindset won't just alienate folks, the squabbling between people singing off a different sheet music is precisely what "they" want.

    In some cases lesser activity may be justified though actually. With the growing acceptance of "non-mainstream opinions" (better: opinions en route to become mainstream in the future) amongst the general population and the growing challenges the very preservation of our people and the safeguarding of our people, some people prefer RL activism over theoretical discussion. For me it's both street activism and a whole lot of everyday theoretical work, at the end of the day I sometimes feel a little burnt-out because I've already brought quite a few thoughts to paper that day.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    True trolls are usually found out very quickly, the more skillful ones take some time and yes they do come here to get hateful responses.

    Who said anything about anti-Germanicism or multiculturalism?

    What I think is that some people are quick to label anyone who doesn't share their ideology as an "enemy".

    I've been accused to be a hater of Germans because I do not approve of national socialism and of certain actions of Nazi Germany. Or because I do not approve of Andrew Anglin's tactics or of violence. Do you think this is reasonable? Because I don't. And if I've been made to feel uneasy, I can only imagine how 19 year old new members who are barely just starting to know the world feel. You do not educate people this way, you turn them away.
    The problem is often people who have leftist views are haters and pro-multicultural. Some of these people can be educated and others cannot. If a person openly displays hatred or bashes other Germanic groups on this forum they are trolls and haters.

    As far as National Socialism is concerned many cannot understand its full concepts unless you view it as a German from Germany and in the context of the times. There is nothing wrong with questioning NS, and I myself have been put under this spotlight several times here( I'm not NS). I question people who are the Hollywood type of NS especially if they are from the U.S. and into all the NS symbolism and they don't fully understand what Germans were and are going through in their own nation. By far I don't think NS ideology has ever taken over this forum or ever will keep in mind the owners/admin here are Libertarians mostly, then there are a lot of members and staff that are like myself that do not assign to any current political ideology or group.

    I didn't say that we should invite anyone who preaches hatred towards Germanics. I am not a hater, of either Germanics or non-Germanics. I am against preaching hatred towards anyone. I am talking about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for other Germanics, who come here because they are interested in their heritage, their culture, their people, and providing them with a platform where they can express their opinion without fear, as the Skadi mission statement says.
    I will remind you recently here Bavarians and Southern Germans were called jews and non-Germanic by a member here, though he was skillful in his approach it still meant what he was implying. How do you think a young new member of that group would feel welcome after reading things like that? Is that a warm environment? I don't think anybody here would call you hater of Germanics. I understand what the mission statement says however this forum is a private place for Germanics and those who wish to preserve our race, heritage and culture those who openly support multiculturalism should not feel welcome.

    I am talking about ideology first and foremost, and more specifically not adhering to certain ideologies or ideas (e.g. right wing) that some people are set on believing is the only acceptable definition of Germanic preservation. The alt right is white nationalist, not Germanic preservationist, and not all Germanic preservationists are necessarily sympathetic to NS/alt right.
    The problem is as I stated above most of those that have a more left view in its modern context are against preserving their race and culture. The alt right has jumped the shark IMHO when they let jews and negroes be part of them, they are neither white nationalist or Germanic preservationist and to think otherwise is wrong. You cannot put NS into the same group as alt right or white nationalism and it depends how you define any of those perspectives. No, you don't have to be in any group to be a Germanic preservationist, but you do have to understand that Germanics should come first. I live in America, for eight years we had a racist negroe as the leader of our country, do you believe that it is "ok" to have a leader like that for Germanic Americans? Do you believe it is "ok" to have a jewish run media constantly preaching the destruction of your people? Most members that are already here come here to escape from the mainstream and to be with others that share the same cultural backgrounds as themselves, is it right to invite people here that do not share those views?
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    I think the point Norman Pride was trying to make was that to divide everyone between right and left would be simplistic and instead people should be classified according to whether they are pro-Germanic or not.

    I do see a point here. First, because the definition of left and right could very from person to person. It depends largely on how everyone defines those terms. Socially? Economically? A combination thereof? Second because between right and left, there are x other positions, e.g. center/moderate, center-right, center-left, radical center, far-right, far-left, etc.

    For example, the Republicans in the US or the Conservative Party of Canada would be center-right. In Europe, the ÖVP (Austrian People's Party) is center-right. They are right-wing and conservative, support some traditional/Christian values, support economic liberalism/capitalism and are anti-socialist, support deregulation, etc. They would accept immigrants, but ideally they should learn German and become fruitful members of society. The New Flemish Alliance in Belgium is a regionalist and separatist movement that identifies with the promotion of civic nationalism. Merkel's party in Germany, the CDU and its sister Bavarian party, the CSU, are also moderate right. So is Theresa May's Conservative Party in the UK. You might find some Germanic preservationists among their or their supporter's ranks but ethnic nationalism is not their forte. Most of these parties have declined over the decades in what the conservative part is concerned. However, ethnic nationalism could be integrated with such platforms since it fits with the conservative platform.

    The there are those "classic" right-wing parties like the REP in Germany or the PVV in the Netherlands, who are generally Eurosceptic, support a form of civic nationalism with a Western bias, oppose or want to halt mass immigration from non-Western states, want to reduce the welfare state and are decidedly anti-Islam. They take a strong assimilationist stance on the integration of non-European ethnics into European society, e.g. banning of burquas, closing down of mosques, deportation of immigrant criminals. They believe that Judeo-Christian and humanist traditions should be taken as the dominant culture, and that immigrants should adapt accordingly. Some distance themselves from the far-right and do not mind alliances with Zionists. Some are Germanic preservationist but some are not. You should find some Germanic preservationists among their or their supporter's ranks. While ethnic nationalism is not necessarily their forte, it could be integrated since it fits with the conservative platform.

    Then of course you have the far-right, like the NPD in Germany who support most of the above positions but the ethnic element of nationalism is emphasised some more. Some have neo-nazis and skinheads among their followers. They support a system governed by "natural law". Some support a return to the pre-war borders or integration of the diaspora. Some of those parties or their followers support an abolition of liberal democracies and the enforcement of an authoritatian system (such as neo-fascism). You will have no trouble finding some Germanic preservationists among their or their supporter's ranks. Ethnic nationalism is their forte, however you will find some positions that are also common among the left (e.g. socialist economics, a disdain for the right/capitalists, authoritarianism) and even some that would be even questionable (e.g. alliance with either Zionists or Islam). Some of them extend the definition of what it means to be Germanic and include non-Germanics (other Europeans, other Westerners, etc.) The alt-right in the US has not only Zionist, but also Jewish members in their ranks.

    You also have center parties, like the former VU (People's Union) in Belgium. They were a Flemish nationalist party supporting federalism.

    Among the center-left you will find the "green" parties. They're concerned with environmentalism, pro-Europeanism (EU) and believe in working within the established systems to improve social justice. Grassroots democracy and nonviolence are also among their pillars. Many are strongly pacifist and against restrictions on immigration and reproductive rights, support the LGBTQ and other sexual minorities. Despite their adherence to non-violence, some will support a culture of protest and civil disobedience, e.g. against nuclear energy, waste disposal and other forms of pollution. You might find some Germanic preservationists among their or their supporter's ranks. While ethnic nationalism is not necessarily their forte, it could be integrated since preservation of environment is to a certain extent necessary for the preservation of individual ethnicities.As for homosexuals, etc. As for LGBTQ, this is not a strictly non-Germanic phenomenon. Homosexual rights could still theoretically exist in a homogeneous Germanic or nationalist society.

    You could apply this pattern with most other ideologies. The only relevant question is, does one support a homogeneous Germanic society. If the answer is yes, that could be reconciled with almost any ideology. You have even far-left ideologies with an ethnic aspect, e.g. left-wing populism or nationalist communism, which combine left-wing politics and populist rhetoric and themes. The rhetoric often consists of anti-elitist sentiments, opposition to the system and speaking for the "common people". They are vehemently anti-capitalist, anti-American, some Eurosceptic, anti-globalisation, anti-imperialist, etc. You could theoretically have someone who is bent on a very socialist or even communist economical and social system, wants equality and a welfare system, universal health care, but in the framework of a homogeneous Germanic state. Their reasoning could be that they emphasize the collectivist aspect of nationalism and the nation is a big family who needs to be taken care of and that all members of the nation are considered equal. Or you could have someone who is very capitalist, pro big businesses and elitist, but they do not care about ethnic matters. You could have someone who support heavy regulations, because they believe most people are idiots and cannot take care of themselves or do not know what is best, and you could have someone who supports the opposite, anarchy, because they believe Germanics are intelligent enough and could be more responsible and self-sufficient if given the freedom and access to information.

    Anyway, I think you get the drift. And actually these would make for interesting debates even among people who support a homogeneously Germanic society - e.g. could a healthy society function without freedom of speech or would it be ethical to withhold certain rights from people who do not work/have not served in the military, is voting/democracy essential at all, etc. Naturally, when you have people who hold the same of very similar positions on these issues, there isn't much to debate. And in the absence of debate, there is also little brainstorming, which could lead to a decrease in both discussion quality and quantity, unfortunately.

    New ideas which add to older bigger discussions are scarce, usually it's the same old opinions you can read by going back a few pages.

    In essence, it really is just the absence of people who want to convince you of something, and do so by actually formulating reasoned arguments, and are able to actually understand counter arguments. That makes an interesting discussion.
    Those people are always scarce, in real life and here. But somehow the old Skadi manged to attract quite a few of them, so I could learn a lot and I am thankful for that.
    An astute observation. Certain topics have been beaten to death, but in general I miss the old debates. They sharpened my thinking in many different ways and I gained a ton of knowledge from them. These days I just don’t have time to participate in them, but hopefully in the future I can "get back in the saddle."

    I hear you. I actually thought about questioning some assertions in a recent post of yours in the "Do you believe in evolution" thread, but then I decided to stand down as I was concerned that I wouldn’t have sufficient time to participate in a meaningful, intellectual discussion. I’m sure that you would have responded with a wealth of facts and philosophical observations to support your position, which would in turn require much Googling and contemplation on my part to give you the type of response that your post would merit.

    Ach, if not for the battle against time…

    In any case, I noticed that Varg Vikernes now has over 170,000 subscribers on his "Thulean Perspective" YouTube channel. There also seems to be lots of user activity on sites connected to podcasts, such as "The Right Stuff" and "The Daily Stormer." I don't endorse the aforementioned sites, but we can learn from them. To attract a wider audience, I think it's time for Skadi to step up into the YouTube and/or podcast game. To my knowledge there aren't any Germanic-centric content creators out there, so Skadi could fill a void and make history.

    I don't understand why many people are satisfied just to post comments on YouTube or Twitter when it is less likely they will get a reply than if they had posted on a forum. Those media are not well designed for conversations anyway.

    The Apricity is very active but many of the posts are dross or "Classify [celebrity]".

    Yes, indeed, TA certainly isn't anything close to what it once represented. My wife and I just visit that very odd site occasionally to peruse the 'weirdness', or post YouTube songs.

    Some non-white contributing member just accused me of messing with female members there, and screwing around on my wife. I called him out on it for proof. Plus I called him a few other choice names as well.

    And I might as well make it perfectly clear at this site as well: I don't treat any members, male, or female disrespectfully. If someone thinks I have, spit it out and back it up with proof... 'nough said.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I think there could be a problem with receiving the emails from Skadi.
    Yes, all e-mail functions used to be disabled because we had a SPAM problem on vBulletin 3, but we re-enabled them again two or three days ago, so it should work now.

    Most people on YouTube are satisfied with posting one-liners, so it seems, hoping they get many likes or even a 'heart' from the channel owner.

    YouTube destroyed the Comment section completely by factually disabling the dislike function and by moving comments with lots of replies up (quantity over quality). This moves comments with many 'Likes' to the top what are usually affirmative reactions to cheerleading one-liners. And it moves comments with a lot of replies equally up what are usually troll remarks and insults that create a lot of counter-insults and other emotional feedback.

    Previously, YouTube preferred more lengthy comments over one-liners ('quality' over quantity), and the more brainy users (whose attention span permits them to read longer posts) were able to rate the quality of the arguments or the discussion by either up- or downvoting it. One also could comment directly (and could browse the whole thread) from Google Plus without returning to the video.

    Well, the current system encourages people to return much more often to the video (to add yet another insult or to squabble about nonsense), and whenever someone returns another video view is counted ... and the number of views is important for the ad revenues. The real views are now totally inflated, of course. But that's why YouTube changed it, I guess. It's all about the dollar.

    I often get the impression that many people have also become too lazy to type and to compose a longer coherent argument; in particular the millennium generation. Thanks to SMS, Twitter, and their character limits, as well as YouTube, there is now a right-wing couch potato culture where people passively watch videos the whole day, write a few one-liners as comments or tweets, and mistake the whole thing for "activism."

    Oh, that's Varg Vikernes?

    I had no idea, I am not really following his comments, but the day before yesterday he made a video called "My apologies to the alt-right..." and then I had to click, fearing that the old man could have gone insane. Luckily, he was just in the mood for irony.

    His 170k subscribers are actually genuine, he didn't buy them, as there is a steady increase in his subscriber count. Well, he makes videos almost daily, without much effort or any editing, just talks into his phone or cam, very interesting strategy.

    To attract a wider audience, I think it's time for Skadi to step up into the YouTube and/or podcast game. To my knowledge there aren't any Germanic-centric content creators out there, so Skadi could fill a void and make history.
    Yes, for certain. Want our YouTube login to start?

    Really? I don't understand how anyone could confuse us with the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos?
    They hate our guts so much that they originally wanted to call themselves alt-Skadi.

    I don't think anyone is preaching hatred, but who can't express his opinion without fear? And why?

    Everyone has his biases and agendas. Someone might dislike certain ideological or political ideas, others might think that we don't have the luxury of a merely cultural perspective in these times. I hear what you are saying, but the only way to combat attempts of ideological usurpation is by speaking up and by opposing the idea. In an ideal world, there would be ideal and flawless people, including flawless moderators, and then we would probably not even need this forum, but in this world (that gets crazier and more aggressive by the day) people need to be informed, educated, convinced. And if the carpet is unfairly pulled from beneath your feet, please don't hesitate to drop me (and Aeternitas, as she is more regularly around) a PM...

    Neo-nazis tend to be intolerant towards other views and more likely to censor them, gang up on the person in question, intimidate them or lobby to get them removed from the community. As a result, you get less discussion, more lowbrow one-liners and silence, as preaching to the choir becomes boring. After the 10738th post complaining about immigration, anti-white propaganda and the white genocide, it gets repetitive. Hardly anything challenges the intellect anymore.
    So you are not waiting on anything and are content with the status quo?
    Not on anything unrealistic and anachronistic, not to mention ungermanic, like national socialism is.

    So you are saying the moderators are at fault here, that's not a problem of NS. And I disagree with your claims

    Yes, I agree. However, the topics sound like white nationalist ones.

    A simple "yes" would have been sufficient. Then again, it follows you are not worried about Nazis waiting per se, as your post suggested, but about what they wait on. That makes it clearer, but makes your former remark irrelevant.
