Dr. Tomislav Sunic on Paganism

Can we still conceive of the revival of Pagan sensibility in an age
so profoundly saturated by Judeo-Christian monotheism and so
ardently adhering to the tenets of liberal democracy? In popular
parlance the very word "Paganism" may incite some to derision and
laughter. Who, after all, wants to be associated with witches and
witchcraft, with sorcery and black magic? Worshiping animals or
plants, or chanting hymns to Wotan or Zeus, in an epoch of cable
television and "smart weapons," does not augur well for serious
intellectual and academic inquiry. Yet, before we begin to heap
scorn on Paganism, we should pause for a moment. Paganism is not
just witches and witches' brew; Paganism also means a mix of highly
speculative theories and philosophies. Paganism is Seneca and
Tacitus; it is an artistic and cultural movement that swept over
Italy under the banner of the Renaissance. Paganism also means
Friedrich Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger, Charles Darwin, and a host of
other thinkers associated with the Western cultural heritage. Two
thousand years of Judeo-Christianity have not obscured the fact that
Pagan thought has not yet disappeared, even though it has often been
blurred, stifled, or persecuted by monotheistic religions and their
secular offshoots...Abraham and Moses may be dethroned today, but
their moral edicts and spiritual ordinances are much alive. The
global and disenchanted world, accompanied by the litany of human
rights, ecumenical society, and the rule of law ---- are these not
principles that can be traced directly to the Judeo-Christian
messianism that resurfaces today in its secular version under the
elegant garb of modern "progressive" ideologies?

And yet, we should not forget that the Western world did not begin
with the birth of Christ. Neither did the religions of ancient
Europeans see the first light of the day with Moses-in the desert.
Nor did our much-vaunted democracy begin with the period of
Enlightenment or with the proclamation of American independence.
Democracy and independence-all of this existed in ancient Greece,
albeit in its own unique social and religious context. Our Greco-
Roman ancestors, our predecessors who roamed the woods of central
and northern Europe, also believed in honor, justice, and virtue,
although they attached to these notions a radically different

Who knows, with the death of communism, with the exhaustion of
liberalism, with the visible depletion of the congregations in
churches and synagogues, we may be witnessing the dawn of
neopaganism, a new blossoming of old cultures, a return to the roots
that are directly tied to our ancient European precursors. Who can
dispute the fact that Athens was the homeland of Europeans before
Jerusalem became their frequently painful edifice?

Great lamenting is heard from all quarters of our disenchanted and
barren world today. Gods seem to have departed, as Nietzsche
predicted a century ago, ideologies are dead, and liberalism hardly
seems capable of providing man with enduring spiritual support.
Maybe the time has come to search for other paradigms? Perhaps the
moment is ripe, as Alain Benoist would argue, to envision another
cultural and spiritual revolution-a revolution that might well
embody our pre-Christian European Pagan heritage?

Economic Logic

Yet another bunch of economic boffins, this time in Barcelona, have told us mugs that European national economies (in this instance the Spanish) cannot survive and prosper without a further massive influx of third world immigrants (BBC World Service report, 7 October 2006).

Their deliberations beg the question of what a national economy is actually for? Is it to keep the native population in a reasonable standard of living, or is it to act solely as a cog for the enrichment of the parasitical cosmopolitan elite who control the decadent New World Order?

The word “economy” is ultimately from Ancient Greek, and meant nothing more than “household management”. If a household contracts, then it will require less resources. It doesn't need to bring in extra lodgers to boost some spurious standard of living and destructive “economic growth”. In particular it doesn't need lodgers who are antagonistic to the values of the pre-existing household members.

The same bulletin contained a later item about the current drastic reduction of blue-finned tuna in the Mediterranean, due to over-fishing. So what are all these new immigrants going to eat? Spain, according to reliable climate-change scientists, is likely to be hit hard by escalating drought, so they can't rely on the land to provide an adequate food supply. And they won't be able to rely on imports when other countries and continents face droughts and other consequences of global warming even more dire than those faced by Spain.

In my “Aryan Futurism” essay (see below) I describe how we Europeans can provide enough food for ourselves in future, and much more, despite climate change, but the model demands a radical re-think of current economic received opinion. It demands a pan-continental, sustainable, command economy managed by the IMPERIUM. The moribund policies of the free-marketeers in Barcelona and elsewhere need to be scrapped because they won't work anyway.

Mind Your Language

The expression “appropriate language” is an example of the standard, thoughtless and vacuous language we have all been encouraged to speak over the past 30 years or so. It's exactly the sort of politically correct (cultural Marxist) “celebration of diversity” that makes us sound like prissy Victorian schoolmarms and which the indigenous population (young people in particular) are increasingly reacting against. For example, witness the riots this week in Windsor, or the largely unreported riots in Preston and further afield in Belgium. It is the language that forces us to describe ourselves in ugly, transitory acronyms (LGBT&T, anyone?) which are ultimately false because they lump us together with seemingly self-obsessed freaks to whom we have absolutely nothing in common.

Our country and continent are finally waking up to the unpleasant fact of how we have been betrayed by the treacherous elite who rule the West. As homosexuals we must ensure that we are not perceived as being on their loosing side; i.e. as being supporters of their multi-cultural mess, rather than a part of the solution. Especially when multi-culturalism works directly against our own best interests by pandering to such people as alien evangelical Christians and Muslims with their blood-curdling and irrational condemnations of homosexuality.
