"Yesterday I had the honour of speaking to a select group of people in Oxford including Finnish theorist Kai Murros. My speech was a basic introduction to Sigurd and I answered questions afterwards focusing on the ways we are training young men for 21st century life through medieval and dark ages mysticism.
I also had the distinct honour of hearing a young Finnish woman describe her joy at being born into an era where Europe is facing annihilation, where our enemies internal and external beset us on all sides and European women are the number one target of all these enemies. Yes you read that correctly, her JOY at being born in this era. Her exact words were (as I was describing my belief that we are about to experience a “eucatastrophe” in European spirituality and instinctive defence mechanism) - “and I get to be born in this time, it’s so wonderful”.
No pessimism, no darkness, no certainty of doom and extinction, the joy and excitement that comes with absolute belief in the gods and the people to save ourselves from doom.
The European myth lives, and all about us are pessimistic Denethors and moody Wormtongues doing their evil work, but dotted about, with noble hearts are the Eowyns and the Arwens, who will not doubt for a second that there are walking on every British, German, French, Spanish and Roman street, Boromirs, Faramirs, Gimlis, Gandalfs and Aragorns.”
