Else Christensen and her husband Alex Aage Christensen

According to my interview

and Syndicalist labor organizer who taught Else how to think
analytically about political, economic, and religious issues.
In regard to the indigenous religion concept,
the Japanese still "get it" by preserving Shinto.The March 19, 2007 New York Times article
Interest in Japanese Who Died in Epic Battle"
by Martin Fackler had the caption: "Yoshitaka Shindo,
grandson of the Japanese commander on Iwo Jima, during
the March 14 commemoration of the battle." This event
included the Japanese practice of pouring water over the
memorial stone to cleanse it, which has Shinto roots.
Other news reports described Shinto priests who returned
to the island to perform ceremonies. Iwo
Jima was returned to Japan and supports a Japanese
Air Base. All this goes to show that "preserving
the best of the old with the best of the new" still
works for advanced industrial societies with plenty of
economic and military power.

is almost impossible to have a solid nationalist movement
without first revitalizing the indigenous culture and religion
of ones own ancestors. After all, if one does not care about
preserving the "folk soul" of the ancestors of
ones own people, why would one especially care about protecting
their current political, economic, cultural, and military
or "Asatru" is relevant to American nationalism
to the extent that America was originally founded by an
overwhelmingly WASP majority, who created all of its major
institutions in the 18th and 19th centuries. WASPs are mainly
a Nordic or Nordic-Celtic people -- and Scandinavians are
the "WASPiest" of the "WASPs" with very
strong historical, cultural, and anthropological ties to
America's Anglo-Saxon/English founders. It would not be
far-fetched to claim that "Odinism" or some very
closely related ancient Celtic religion reflects the pre-Christian
religious viewpoint of most of the ancestors of the "Founding
Fathers" of the United States.
would also not be far-fetched to claim that a major reason
why American society is so dysfunctional today is because
Americans of northern European descent lack the necessary
sense of identity and social cohesion to act as adequate
counter predators against high level criminal predators.
(See further discussion of ethnic nationalist-related issues
in my Reconciling
Libertarianism and Nationalism web page).
the fact that Americans of English, Scottish, and Scots-Irish
descent played a disproportionate role in creating America
and its bedrock institutions in the 18th and 19th centuries,
most Americans descended from inhabitants of the British
Isles have either no sense of ancestral identity at all,
or else it is an unfairly negative sense of identity warped
by alien-controlled national media disinformation.
response to individuals who may feel an automatic "political
correctness" knee jerk suspicion that "Odinism"
or "Asatru" reflects some kind of warmed over
or reinvented form of German National Socialism, I would
first point out that according to my interview
with Else Christensen, she and her husband were part of
labor movement in Denmark in the 1930's, which had a
strong libertarian streak in its ideology. One can also
detect some strong libertarian tendencies in Else's interpretation
of old Norse religion in The Odinist. She once
told me that Germans as a group are much more "by the
book" compared to Scandinavians, who are much more
individualistic. (This is consistent with Dr. Lothrop's
characterizations in his classic work Racial
Realities in Europe in his chapters The
Nordic North and Alpinized
my own personal response is that I became interested in
the indigenous religion of my old Norse ancestors from a
very different perspective than "national socialism"
while making a documentary film about Native Hawaiian political
activists, and while interacting with professors of religion
and anthropology at the University of Hawaii. I became fascinated
by the "nativistic movement" concept and other
"cultural survival" issues as a defense against
various forms of genocide against indigenous peoples. Many
native Hawaiians were interested in resurrecting aspects
of the Old Hawaiian religion called Kahunaism, much like
a number of Sioux activists I met at a documentary film
festival who were interested in revitalizing the Sun
Dance and other indigenous religious practices.
began to dawn upon me that the group which I am ethnically
closest to, namely the Norwegian American community, has
also become a very vulnerable, dependent subculture in today's
"New Babylon," "New Imperial Rome,"
Jerusalem" America, just like native American groups.
The Nordic percentage of the U.S. population has been in
steady decline ever since the War Against Southern Independence
(1861-1865), as documented in works like The
Passing of the Great Race by Madison Grant
Dispossessed Majority by Wilmot Robertson,
so we too are being subjected to slow and subtle forms of
genocide. Last, but not least, Scandinavians have always
had a strong libertarian streak throughout their institutions,
and Nordic peoples have been the leaders in world history
in regard to the creation of viable democratic and republican
forms of government and the protection of human rights,
therefore I have no need to be defensive or apologetic about
any possible "guilt by association" problems involving
cases where Old Norse symbols were once expropriated for
decidedly non-libertarian, expedient political purposes
by certain 20th century German authoritarians and militarists.
an aside, a good starting point to compare Scandinavians
with Germans involves reading Chapter 3: The
Nordic North and Chapter 6 Alpinized
Germany in Dr. Lothrop Stoddard's classic work
Realities in Europe. Also, as a disclaimer
regarding myself, my religious views are purely my own and
are in no way officially representative of the Norwegian-American
community or of Norway, which is officially a Lutheran country
with a Christian cross on its national flag. However, it
is true that Scandinavians are famous for producing a disproportionate
share of individualistic, straight-speaking, and iconoclastic
explorers, innovators, scientists, and free thinkers. As
a final note, controlled national media in America are generally
contemptuous of every form of nativistic movement for every
kind of people in America except for the revitalization
of ancient traditions that involve Jews, in which case the
attitude is usually completely the opposite.
or "Asatru" is also very relevant to the "Info
War" (a term frequently used
by Alex Jones and also in my Mission
of Conscience series) and the propaganda "Matrix"
(a term used in the Hollywood
movie by the same name and also by Republican Broadcasting
show host Alan Watt) to the extent that the first round
of highly systematic brainwashing and propagandistic totalitarian
control of Western Man took place during the Christianization
process that coincided with accelerating imperial tyranny,
race-mixing, and multi-culturalism in the latter phases
of the Western Roman Empire.
be fair, it is true that propaganda systems were used by
ruling classes long before the advent of Christianity to
control their populations. For example, after pagan Romans
under Julius Caeser conquered the Celts of France, they
tracked down and killed off Druidic priesthoods to eradicate
strongpoints of Celtic tribal nationalism that might present
a threat to Roman imperial hegemony. Interestingly enough,
in his fictional work Hawaii, James Michener portrays
a similar concept in his chapter "From the Sun Swept
Lagoon" where Polynesian tribesmen from one island
of Tahiti ruthlessly impose their gods over the indigenous
gods of another tribe on another island in an effort to
complete their military conquest with psychological conquest,
or as they say in modern PSYOP parlance, achieve "full
spectrum dominance." Lastly, the creation of large
ziggurats by Sumerians or pyramids by ancient Egyptians
could also be viewed as propaganda devices to keep the masses
awed by the power and munificence of the state-supported
I think it also fair to observe that Christian ideology
was a quantum leap forward in terms of virulence and ideological
sophistication, much like the synthesis of LSD was a major
development in the scientific creation of hallucinogens
compared to more natural substances such as peyote and opium.
Similarly, while certainly many different types of leftist
political movements have arisen on a natural and spontaneous
level throughout history prior to the advent of Marxism
in the mid-19th century, to include "peasant revolts"
in ancient China, the Communist movement spawned by the
son of a Rabbi named Karl Marx was able to collate, systematize,
revolutionize, and weaponize "leftism" with "evil
genius" and boost its potency, virulence, self-righteousness,
and "world view" exclusivity to a whole new level.
enough, both Christianity and Marxism have many interesting
commonalities. For starters, in their initial phases they
were both fabricated, financed, organized, and principally
promoted by influential Jews on a very conscious, deliberate,
and ultimately malevolent level.

was forced on northern European pagans through a lengthy
process of conquest, torture, deception, and trade monopolization.
Although many "Odinist" and other pagan European
societies had proven themselves to be quite potent on a
economic, social, political, economic, and military level,
they lacked the necessary deep intellectual infrastructure
during this era which was necessary to continuously resist
a sophisticated psychological warfare weapon (or "ideological
computer virus") such as Christianity which had been
fabricated and promoted by ancient Jews, analogous to the
way more recent Jews have created and attacked Iran with
virus. (See "Commissary
to the Gentiles" by Marcus Eli Ravage,
Century Magazine, Feb 1928, or The
Anti-Christ by Friedrich Nietzsche, originally
published in 1895).
American Christians falsely believe that pagans are automatically
somehow less moral and less civilized than themselves, when
in fact one can show clear examples where the exact opposite
is true. For instance, in my article Eternal
Asatru and Counterfeit Christianity I quote
a Christian priest named Salvian who in 440 A.D. wrote about
how he found pagan Germanic "barbarians" to be
more inherently virtuous than his fellow Christianized Romans.
Gayley Simpson argued in Which Way Western Man?
that in the long run it is healthier for a society to follow
a tribal religion in harmony with nature than a universalistic
religion such as Christianity which often tries to turn
the natural world on its head. (This view was shared by
Thomas Jefferson with his praise for a naturalistic approach
to religion, as noted towards the end ofThe Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans
by Dr. Hans Gunther, and Niccolo
Machiavelli, who believed that pagans of the early Roman
Republican era were tougher and more inherently virtuous
than Christians who came later during the Roman Imperial
Angles, Saxons, and Jutes who made up the "Anglo-Saxon"
ancestors of America's "Founding Fathers" were
a Nordic pagan people originally from Denmark and northern
Germany. They invaded Briton in the early 5th century A.D.
not long after Roman legions pulled out. Unfortunately the
post-Roman Republican, imperialistic, race-mixed, and thoroughly
decadent "Latin world" was able to "reoccupy"
Anglo-Saxon England on an ideological level with "Christianization,"
tragically bringing forth new depths of social regimentation
and universalistic brainwashing away from ancestral and
tribal forms of "natural religion." Despite this
setback at the hand of an alien, Jewish-created religion,
English society was once again reinvigorated by the Norse
pagan invasions that created the "Danelaw"
area of Britain during the Viking Age that extended from
from the late 8th to the 11th century.
Normans who conquered England in 1066 were a mixture of
Norwegian and Danish Viking ancestry, but they had also
become Christianized and had adopted French culture. Unfortunately
the ruthlessness of the Christian "Norman
Yoke" era was an aberration from traditional Nordic
pagan patterns of political decentralization, influenced
by many factors such as the peculiar personal psychopathic
qualities of William the Conqueror and his court Jews (whom
he brought with him to England when he set up his feudal
system), and the inherent totalitarianism of French Catholic
ideology of this era. This began an interesting paradox
where quite often Christianized and often Jewish-influenced
Nordic-Celts of Britain's ruling class have acted far less
civilized than old Norse pagan ancestors, a pattern repeatedly
witnessed later in British history. Examples include the
rampages of Cromwell's Puritan New Model Army in Scotland
and Ireland (Cromwell was substantially financed by Dutch
Jews and he readmitted Jews into England for the first time
since King Edward I issued the Edict
of Expulsion in 1290), the British Army's barbaric treatment
of Dutch-descended Afrikaner women and children during the
Boer War (this war was largely instigated by the British
Rothschilds in a grab for gold-bearing properties), and
the unrestricted terror bombings by the British R.A.F. and
U.S. Army Air Force of Dresden and other German cities packed
with civilian refugees and without military value in WWII
(British and American excesses were largely instigated by
Jewish powers behind the throne, such Treasury Secretary
Henry R. Morgenthau, Jr. in the FDR administration who came
up with the infamous "Morgenthau
Plan," or the Rothschilds and other elite Jews
financed Churchill and other British leaders, not to
mention the tremendous influence of the part-Jewish British
royal family and other aristocrats whose families started
intermarrying with Jews in the 17th century).
DNA tests suggest that most Englishmen descended from medieval
inhabitants of the British Isles retain a mixture of both
strong Celtic as well as Nordic bloodlines. Nevertheless
the ancient Celts of Briton and Scotland had strong physical
and cultural similarities to the Nordic peoples of Scandinavia,
and the ancient Celtic and Nordic religions also have strong
philosophical similarities with each other.
advantage of leaning more on Asatru compared to ancient
Celtic religion for modern revitalization purposes is that
much more documentation has survived regarding Asatru thanks
to the work of medieval Icelandic scholars, whereas a huge
portion of the authentic Celtic religious heritage was thrown
down the memory hole by Roman occupiers and fanatically
intolerant Christian censors.
or "Asatru" also has strong philosophical commonalities
with an earlier "Proto-Indo-European religion"
shared by most ancient whites, just as there was once a
"Proto-Indo-European Language" (According to the
Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots) that
is the source of all modern European languages today. "Odinism"
is the "northern window" practiced by northern
Europeans into this earlier pre-Christian religion. Ancient
Celtic mythology comprised the "western window"
into the earlier "Proto-Indo-European" religion.
(I hesitate to say "Druidic" religion for Celts,
because there are serious questions about the extent to
which Celtic religion became "contaminated," that
is, the extent to which certain Druidic priesthoods may
have reflected exotic mystery religion imports from alien
peoples in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern areas, and
may have also reflected rent-seeking and occult priest class
developments within certain Celtic tribes that had become
more degenerate than their Nordic counterparts). The early
Greco-Roman religions were the "southern window,"
and the very early Hinduism practiced by ancient whites
(commonly referred to by serious scholars as "Aryans")
in what is today's Pakistan and northwestern India comprised
the "eastern window." (Later Hinduism reflects
the alien temperamental traits of alien racial groups).
Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans by
Dr. Hans Gunther.
1971 to 1992, 151 editions of The Odinist newsletter
were published by Else Christensen, a lady born in Denmark
who had worked in Canada and retired in Florida. I cover
more background in my
Interview with Else Christensen first published
in the June 1993 edition of Vor Tru, an Asatru
magazine published by the Asatru Alliance.
the standpoint of studying nationalism, her newsletter was
unique in terms of its ability to show the interactions
of a wide variety of perspectives, ranging from archeology,
indigenous religion, and folk culture to politics, ideology,
and economics. For most Americans who have been raised in
a rootless, multi-racial, multi-cultural, and otherwise
thoroughly plastic society, and who have been deeply brainwashed
with "neo-Jacobin" ideology, socially irresponsible
"promiscuity," and thoroughly "Judaized"
values by alien-controlled national media (please see my
to my "Resolving Opposing Ideologies" series,
and also my commentary regarding Question 23 of my "Have
You Been Brainwashed?" quiz, namely, "What
is the preferable function of religion in a society?"
where I attempt to address the evolutionary function of
religion from a scientific perspective), this newsletter
covers a wide range of important topics in layman's terms
to make it relatively easy to grasp religious and cultural
factors behind various ancestral and tribal forms of nationalism.
a broader level, the general concepts explained in this
newsletter can also apply to the nationalistic and nativistic
movement of other peoples with other religious traditions
around the world, although Else Christensen and her fellow
Odinists encouraged other peoples to draw upon the deities
and cultures of their own ancestors rather than borrow from
Norse symbolism and folkways.
do not necessarily agree with all the views of Else Christensen
and her guest authors in The Odinist, but nevertheless
believe that they generally showed good intuition and asked
the right questions. They provided a gold mine of insights
and utilized exactly the kind of "structure of thought"
that challenges most forms of "Big Brother" tyranny.
In other words, The Odinist is an excellent intellectual
"rabbit hole" for free thinkers who are trying
to escape the proverbial propaganda "matrix" which
has thoroughly disoriented most Western societies today.
In fact, one cannot fully understand the totality of this
propaganda "matrix" today until one first understands
the initial phase of this brainwashing process that took
place over a thousand years ago when the healthy, natural,
tribal religions of most Europeans got parasitically replaced
by universalistic, dogmatic, authoritarian Jewish Christianity
-- what many Odinists today call "Semitic slave god
just like most Protestant denominations, has no "Pope"
or claim of infallibility by either its religious leaders
or general adherents. Instead, it generally consists of
various communities of individuals who openly try to reconstruct
their religious and cultural heritage as best they can utilizing
facts, logic, and spiritual intuition. So please take the
samples of this newsletter posted as a good starting point
for further inquiry.
think it is wisest to keep the interpretation and practice
of Asatru or Odinism open to public scrutiny, rather try
to operate secret societies that risk getting hijacked by
psychopaths and other opportunists for criminal or other
subversive purposes. (Just like many Catholic secret societies
such as the Jesuits have been used for anti-Protestant
subversion in prior historical periods). I also think
that the late Icelandic Asatru leader Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson,
who I interviewed
through intermediaries in 1992-93, was wise to try to get
along with Christian leaders in Iceland and treat Asatru
as simply a healthy rehabilitation and normalization of
ones ordinary ancestral folk culture, while refraining from
advertising certain old Norse symbols (like the Sowilo
"lightening bolt" rune or certain "sun
symbols") for political "shock jock"
purposes in ways that might be confused with various strains
of 20th century German militarism and authoritarianism.
(Once again, compare Chapter 3: The
Nordic North with Chapter 6 Alpinized
Germany in Dr. Lothrop Stoddard's classic work
Realities in Europe).
the best way to implement Asatru among certain groups like
Scandinavian Americans is to simply duplicate the general
style and approach of existing Christian churches that currently
serve most of the Scandinavian American community, and simply
make adjustments in the theology, but otherwise everything
else should remain pretty much stay the same -- to include
the commitment to social service. After all, the way things
usually go in this world among societies over time is that
"the more things change, the more they stay the same,"
so no need to go to extremes. Furthermore, Christians duplicated
and "spin doctored" many longstanding pagan practices
and belief systems during the medieval Christianization
process (to include many major pagan holidays such as Halloween
--converted to "All Saint's Day," Yule -- converted
to Christmas, and Oestara -- Easter), so now it is time
to duplicate and "spin doctor" them back.
are other important reasons why I think it is wise to take
an evolutionary rather than an antagonistic approach in
working with Christians. A lot of Christians are basically
good people with good instincts, and they should not be
attacked on a personal level to avoid mixing personal issues
with theological issues. Many Christian ministers deserve
our respect for having a genuine commitment to social service.
Secondly, many Christian Churches provide important social
services and have developed considerable social infrastructure,
to include substantial financial and political support in
their local communities. In contrast, many Asatru groups
are relatively new on the block and are more like intellectual
debate societies than fully functional social organizations.
They are simply not prepared yet to perform the full spectrum
of social services currently performed by many Christian
organizations even if many Christians were to suddenly convert
have personally enjoyed some success taking a low key approach,
and have been able to be honest with many Christian leaders
about my real religious views on the American Right and
still get along with them reasonably well. Furthermore,
I have discovered that it is not necessary to "hard
sell" Asatru for certain kinds of people to "get
it," therefore there is no need step on Christian toes
as long as there is enough freedom of speech left in America
and on the Internet so that we can at least get our message
out to the intellectually curious.
I was on active duty in the military in the early 1980's,
and had contact while serving a tour as a legal officer
with the staff of the base military chaplain, I was made
aware of the "spiritual path" concept, which I
think is a good approach for Asatruar to use in trying to
get along with Christians. Supposedly, military chaplains
are supposed to recognize that all the various religious
denominations can offer a viable "spiritual path,"
and hence try to work with each serviceman within the context
of his own faith. So for example, a Protestant military
chaplain who gets visited by an enlisted man who is a Catholic
is supposed to work with that individual within his Catholic
context, rather than try to convert him to Protestantism.
have also heard many Christian theologians describe how
the Bible is like a big Rorschach blot, and for every passage
that seems to assert one idea, one can also find another
passage that seems to assert the exact opposite. Therefore,
it is possible to read out of the Bible what one wants.
For example, according to the Book of Joshua, Yahweh commands
the ancient Israelites to invade Canaan (the "land
of milk and honey") and exterminate without mercy every
man, woman, and child and seize all their property. According
to Joshua, Yahweh punishes those Israelite who fail
to execute this utterly ruthless directive. Then skip forward
to the Gospels, and we see passages where Jesus commands
followers to "love thy enemy" and "turn the
Biblical interpretation even more, many scholars claim that
ancient Jews ripped off various stories and theological
concepts from Indo-European peoples, which implies that
ancient Indo-European religious elements (closely related
to Asatru) are embedded in various segments of the Bible.
just as Thomas Jefferson was able to go through the Gospels
and edit out all supernatural elements inconsistent with
his naturalistic views to derive "The Jefferson Bible"
that contain certain ethical approaches that he found attractive,
similarly I think I could go through the Bible and also
do a highly selective edit job and find quite a lot that
agrees with what I consider to be an "Asatru"
or "Odinist" philosophy.
it may not be wise for Asatruar to get too combative with
Christians, because it is quite possible that on a deep
subconscious level they are resonating with elements of
the Bible that have strong commonalities with the Odinist
viewpoint, and hence have a shared spiritual path. Rather
than antagonize Christians, I share the attitude of many
military chaplains and recognize that many Christians practice
a viable spiritual path (subject to certain caveats and
disclaimers provided by folks like William
Gayley Simpson and Else Christensen, of course). The
wisest course of action seems to be to promote a mutually
respectful interfaith dialog and learn from each other.

Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson Remembered. Two interviews
conducted shortly before the death of the hero who resurrected
Asatru in Iceland after a thousand year hiatus. Interestingly
enough, within the context of a homogeneous Icelandic society,
Asatruar are often more leftist than rightist and are concerned
with ecological themes. Also, Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson maintained
friendly relations with Lutheran ministers, who reciprocated
by allowing him to be buried with a Norse pagan ceremony
in a Christian cemetery beside his deceased kinfolk. (Being
buried among kinfolk is a strong custom in Iceland, regardless
of the place of burial or differing religious views between
them). In other words, many Asatruar and Christians in Iceland
typically maintain a symbiotic and mutually respectful relationship
rather than a hostile one, which I think is probably the
wisest approach in the long run.
Interview with Else Christensen, late publisher
of The Odinist, just prior to the onset of her
tragic criminalization and imprisonment. Dismissing the
social, political, and religious ideas that she has dealt
with because of her run-in with the law commits the fallacy
the well," also known as ad hominem. In
fact, one could go a step further. Whereas Japanese leaders
have been very wise by retaining their tribal, ancestral
faith of Shinto, the leaders of most northern European countries
in the Middle Ages were very unwise to viciously purge their
own tribal, ancestral faiths in favor of Jewish Christianity.
They should have modernized and adapted their own native
religions to maintain national cohesion, identity, pride,
and solidarity. If they had not sold out their own religions,
we would not be in the fix we find ourselves in today where
the promulgation of our ancestral faith has defaulted into
the hands of people suffering from marginalization issues.

religious instincts that give rise to religious mysticism

or propaganda weapon (the "painted word") rather
than anything to do with traditional aesthetics. (See the
Scam of Modern Art by Willis Carto from the Barnes
Review special issue The
Revenge of the Neanderthal). Leading self-anointed "art
critics," with recognizably Jewish names, exerted strong
social pressure through their controlled media and superior
financial power to systematically and nihilistically remove
one "allowable" traditional aesthetic convention
in the development of "trendy" art to the point
that certain of the trendiest forms of "modern art"
began to look like something somebody would ordinarily want
to flush down the toilet, like the alleged "art work"
Christ" sponsored in part by the National Endowment
for the Arts, a United States Government agency, or "Jesus
Receiving Oral Sex" displayed in the Loveland
Museum/Gallery in Loveland, CO that got bashed
by Montana activist Kathleen Folden. This same innately
nihilistic, parasitic, and Neanderthal
mentality manifested by America's leading criminal elite
of the 20th century has also been applied to "socially
re-engineer" and viciously exploit America on many
other social, political, economic, and cultural levels as
well -- much to the great detriment to the general welfare,
civil liberties, and long term posterity of the general
public that comprises the United States.
Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, they live forever.

article exemplifies concerns that many Christians have about
"pagan" religions. A brief response by an Odinist
or Asatruar might be as follows: This article overgeneralizes;
in some ways it can be true, and in other ways it can be
completely false. Some "pagan" religions do in
fact encourage "the death of the West," but then
again, so do many forms of "modern liberal" Christianity.
Other types of pagan religion reflect a return to solid
roots of Western civilization and may in fact offer a better
road to recovery that Christianity.
comes from the Latin word paganus which meant "country
dweller" or "rustic," similar to the way
"heathen" meant someone from the "heath"
or country, suggesting people with more traditional values
compared to "city slickers." There is considerable
historical evidence that Christianity got its primary impetus
from influential Jews within the Roman Empire, and Jews
have always been the most urban or all peoples, therefore
Christianity started out as much more of a multi-cultural,
multi-ethnic urban phenomenon compared to "paganism"
or "heathenism" which has always been more "tribal."
(That is, "Christians" tended to be more "cosmopolitan,"
whereas "pagans" were more often viewed as "hillbillies.")
note that when ancient Greeks invented a conscious theory
of science and republican and democratic government in the
5th and 6th centuries B.C., they were pagans. The Old and
New Testaments offer nothing comparable, but in fact argue
for childish faith rather than a scientific approach and
even condone or even advocate various forms of religious
totalitarianism and even slavery.
are many different types of "pagan" or more accurately
"non-Christian" religions, just like there are
many different forms of Christianity. Some are productive
and truthful, others are covert, corrupt, deceitful, and
degenerative. Some reflect solid Western rationalist traditions,
and others reflect perverse superstitiousness and dysfunctional
mysticism. Certain "pagan" religions reflect more
authentic elements of original Western Civilization than
Christianity itself, whereas other types of pagan ideologies
are analogous to a religious version of Marxism, "Hippie"
retreatism, or Satanism and can be used for subversive purposes.
important irony behind a deeply analytical comparison between
Christianity and "paganism" is that Christianity
has embedded within it so many "pagan" elements
that the ordinary distinction made by the ill-informed lay
person can become meaningless. Archarya S., listed on my
Crisis web page, has done a lot of excellent
work to show the many cross-overs between "paganism"
has very strong political dimensions that support imperialism,
totalitarianism, race-mixing, and dense urbanization. It
has leftist, universalistic, social revolutionary ideology
embedded inside it that has strong similarities to Marxism.
(In Which Way Western
Man?, former Christian minister William Gayley
Simpson described how he met Communists who claimed they
were simply trying to employ the ethics of Jesus on a secular
level). Its totalitarian elements make it easier to control
an empire than more decentralized tribal natural religions.
(During the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church controlled
over a third of all the land in countries like France and
England, and employed armies of priests and monks to gather
"confessions" and other "intelligence"
on "the masses." Even today the Vatican operates
one of the greatest intelligence operations in the world,
right up there with Mossad, CIA, British
MI-6, and Russian
many rulers have felt motivated to impose Christianity upon
their subjects for the political purpose of reducing tribal
conflicts that might undermine their centralized control.
For example, in his book Rascals
in Paradise, James Michener explains how "Blackbirder"
slave traders who roamed the Pacific in the 19th century
placed a priority on trying to capture Christianized natives
first rather than pagans, because all other things being
held equal, Christians tended to put up less of a fight
and made more obedient slaves; also, in the modern era,
Christianity undermines tribal bonds and helps atomize workers
to make them more easily interchangeable "worker drones"
and "human resources" for low cost labor, while
at the same time indoctrinating them with fatalistic "other
worldly" attitudes to prevent them from seriously challenging
leftism has also been a useful tool for rulers to employ
demagoguery to coopt and forestall possible "peasant
revolts," much like today controlled national media,
privately owned central banks (which can print fiat money
to bribe potential opposition -- see Chapter
33 of the Mission of Conscience series),
and police state harassment tools like the ADL, Southern
Poverty Law Center (see the Rev
Ted Pike archive), the Department of Homeland Security,
and FBI COINTELPRO are used to control "democracies."
Christianity seeks to replace European tribal history with
the tribal history of Jews, Christianity has historically
served as the Jewish passport to Western Civilization that
has enabled various forms of "adaptive mimicry"
and "protective camouflage" by "the Chosen
People" to infiltrate and take control of the strategic
bases of gentile societies. (In Chapter
38 of my Mission of Conscience series
I explain how Jews often function as the "Mongols of
covert 4th generation warfare").
but not least, on an individualized level, many people have
been attracted to Christianity as a self-imposed psychological
narcotic to suppress their instinctive tribal feelings and
feel more relaxed about engaging in commerce in multi-racial,
multi-cultural urban environments. Many women prefer Christianity
because in many ways it seems more "feminine,"
"compassionate," and "easier to follow"
than many pagan religions which retain a heroic warrior
ethos, and their husbands acquiesce because they are too
absorbed in bringing home the bacon to worry about "religious
equate the sociobiological term "parasite" with
the layman's term "criminal" and the religious
concept of "Satanism," and believe that legitimate
forms of the indigenous religion of my Old Norse ancestors
reflect the exact opposite of these things. Please see my
Crisis web page for links to other articles
that make these distinctions, to include links to the works
of Enlightenment thinkers like Tom Paine and Thomas Jefferson
who noted disturbing contradictions within Christianity,
or the works of more recent critics like Archarya S. or
the late Dr. Revilo Oliver and William Gayley Simpson who
explain very serious problems within the overall philosophical
structure of Christian theology.
also agree with the viewpoint expressed by Dr. Raymond Cattell
in his books A
New Morality From Science: Beyondism, and Beyondism:
Religion From Science, that man has a strong genetic
and biological component to both his individual and group
make-up that must be observed for successful long term functioning.
Therefore, whenever I encounter either a pagan religion
or a Christian denomination that rejects the "biological
world view" and attacks all forms of white tribalism,
and on top of this focuses the individual on "criminal"
(or "parasitic" or "Satanic") activity,
I immediately see red flags.
but not least, I judge religions by the way in which they
may or may not hinder the capacity for rational, scientific
thought. One advantage of a natural religion approach like
Asatru or Odinism, is that it is much easier to hold a naturalistic
viewpoint and be "religious" at the same time.
Even in ancient times among many intelligent elites the
stories about the gods were intended as "truth in poetry"
and not meant taken as literally, or at least not as literally
as Christian Fundamentalists take the Bible, or Orthodox
Jews take the Talmud. Many pagan ancient Greek and Roman
writers were careful to record history only from a secular
viewpoint and not mix in supernatural events.
are certain kinds of free-thinking individuals who sincerely
find Christianity to be completely unbelievable and just
cannot bring themselves to "go along to get along and
play the game" in a Christian-dominated society. From
a practical standpoint, Christians may be better off in
the long run if such individuals in their communities turn
to an indigenous ancestral faith like Asatru rather than
turn to such alternatives as militantly anti-religious atheism,
Marxism, secular humanism, modern liberalism, Satanic cults,
Eastern mysticism, or superstitious religions. At least
individuals who practice an indigenous religion developed
by ancient ancestors within ones very own tribe have some
group pride and an incentive to preserve conservative, heritage-oriented
values, and from a conservative Christian standpoint is
hence following a "least bad" option compared
to all the alternatives.
an indigenous, natural religion like Asatru seems to require
a certain capacity for independent analysis and other robust
character traits not widely shared by the general population,
I sincerely doubt that Asatruar will ever grow to much more
than a significant minority within various currently existing
communities rather than ever threaten to completely displace
Christianity. The fact that certain Zionists may get hysterical
over such developments may be a good sign, to the
extent that many Jews are concerned that Odinist "folk"
are generally not quite as easy to deceive and manipulate
for Zionism as certain Christian "sheeple-masses"
-- the most gullible variety consisting of "Christian
Zionists." (See "Confronting
The Cult of the Corpulent Con Man" by
Michael Collins Piper).
might add that there are certain Christians who are spring-loaded
from their interpretation of the Book of Revelations to
think that the revitalization of "paganism" will
accompany "End Times." An Odinist might counter
that this should not be a surprise, since the Jews who fabricated
Christianity knew that they were scamming the public (see
to the Gentiles" by Marcus Eli Ravage).
Knowing that their religious fraud would eventually be found
out, they demonized the enlightenment process as a low cunning
way to keep sheeple in the fold.
has its own ways of deterring people from straying in socially
destructive directions. If you are a conservative parent
with a teenager who has started dating, and who also adheres
to an indigenous tribal religion like Asatru or Odinism,
it is much less likely that you will ever encounter a "Guess
who is coming to dinner?" problem compared to most
American teens brainwashed with "modern liberalism"
or "liberal Christianity."
an example of a non-Odinist ethnic group that is a quantum
level more serious about this issue than most Odinists will
ever be, check out:
Jewish girl prank calls her parents (streaming
sound on video against a still picture, 7 minutes) Show
note: "A Jewish girl away from home at college prank
calls her parents and tells them she started dating an
Italian guy. The father threatens to kill the guy and
the mother's comments are priceless." This audio
file is hilarious -and very educational regarding American
ethnic "facts of life."
a final comment, religions tend to mutate over time and
change in character based upon the racial and ethnic character
of its adherents, as well as many other factors. Quite often
this is every bit as important as the official theology
in determining the character of religious practices. As
an example, in the Alex Jones section of my
Reconciling Libertarianism vs. Nationalism
web page, where I talk about "tribalism," I provide
maps and explain how Protestantism arose in areas of Europe
with majority Nordic populations, which previously had been
strongholds of Odinism or Asatru. The greater decentralization
found among Protestant denominations following the Protestant
Reformation had similarities with the relatively high level
of decentralization found among Asatruar during the previous
pagan period. In many ways the character of Nordics peoples
described in the Chapter The
Nordic North in Dr. Lothrop Stoddard's book
Realities in Europe is a greater factor
in the general approach to religion than any particular
theology, be it "Christian" or "pagan."
of all the permutations and transformations over time, there
are many exceptions to the generalities I have discussed
here. It is possible to find some "pagan" groups
of urbanites in America that are relatively "cosmopolitan,"
and certain fundamentalist Christian groups that are "hillbillies."
Therefore, in order to do a full blown analysis of differences
between certain "Christian" and ''pagan"
groups, we must typically incorporate into our discussion
a wide variety of racial, ethnic, social, political, economic,
and historical factors as well as differences in theology. The
