Wage Slaves & Materialism

Reading this article has brought to mind some thoughts I would like to make clear. I don’t believe that and self-respecting man should have to spend eight hours every day or forty hours a week when we have such limited time in this life. I think it’s one the greatest tragedies that modern man suffers from. The wage slave would argue that I’m a leech, and life has no meaning unless I “contribute” to society. They would rather spend their time making money for their boss.

I would however retort that I could do anything I wanted to, learn an instrument, I can study a language or Aristotle, learn to paint, exercise, anything my heart desires. They might argue that it’s only possible to be happy with a mortgage, debt, and insurance. Then go out every weekend and get intoxicated with a crowd of others who are also unhappy with their lives. They would probably say that no woman would ever want such a “loser”.

I however would hold myself to higher standards. A woman who would understand concepts like loyalty and respect, and not someone who would betray you at the first sight of a “richer” man than I. There are good women out there, and if you are a woman there are good men.

The difference between a wage slave and a free man, is that a wage slave is a victim constantly trying to validate what modern society thinks of him. You get validation from your work because society tells you that it’s what “makes a man”. The richer you get, the more things you want to own, and the more complex become your desires. Go on and brag about your Mercedes. A free man is exempt of these desires and has righteous character, defends the truth, and loves the good.

The Mighty Oak & The One Pagan-Europe


The mighty Oak has served as a key symbol for Indo-European belief since the very earliest religious and spiritual practice in the continent. Once the Christian expansion began in Europe there was a war not alone for our own sacred rights, but upon the symbols that we held dear. Such as the Oak tree itself a vital symbol of Pre-Christian Europe.

The tribes of Northern Europe or of Norse Germanic paganism were not the only ones to utilize the Oak as a significant religious symbol. In Scandinavia of course. Old Norse Þórr, Old Saxon thunar, and Old Frisian thuner are cognates within the Germanic language branch, descending from the Proto-Germanic masculine noun *þunraz ‘thunder’. Thor’s Oak was a sacred tree important to Germanic pagans.

In Greece the Oak tree is sacred. Zeus is the Greek continuation of *Di̯ēus, the name of the Proto-Indo-European god of the daytime sky, also called *Dyeus (“Sky Father”). Chief among gods of Greek pantheon. The god of Thunder and Sky. The priests utilizing signs of the Oak tree to determine the will of the gods.

In the Baltic pantheon, Latvia, Lithuania, Prussia. The most important deity named; Latvian Pērkons, Lithuanian Perkūnas and Prussian Perkūns. The Thunder God, the name continues *Perkwunos, cognate to *perkwus, a word for “oak”, “fir” or “wooded mountain”. Some sources believe that Finnish deity Perkele was a loan from the Baltic Pērkons.

Slavic mythology has Perun (Перун). Perun is closely correlated with the strikingly similar Perkūnas/Pērkons from Baltic mythology. The root *perkwu originally probably meant oak, but in Proto-Slavic this evolved into per- meaning “to strike, to slay”. Slavic mythology closely resembles Norse paganism; the world represented by a sacred tree typically an Oak.

Among Celtic tribes of Gaul, Britain and Ireland the god Taranis. The reconstructed Proto-Celtic form of the name is *Toranos “thunder”. In present day Welsh taranu and taran means ‘to thunder’ and ‘thunder’. Once again god of thunder is associated with the Oak. The Celtic name for Oak was part of the Proto-Celtic word for ‘druid’: *derwo-weyd- > *druwid or modern Druid, the priests of Celtic paganism.

More than those I have mentioned. There is a clear link between all the native Indo-European religions that can’t be ignored. When the Christians came they destroyed not only the practices but the symbols associated with the practices. According to legend Saint Boniface cutting down the sacred Thor’s Oak, building a church from the wood and replacing the mighty Oak with a fir tree (which is in the shape of a triangle) to represent the Christian Holy Trinity.

Clearly nothing will stand in the way of Christians spreading their spiritual plague across the globe, including mother nature herself. Destroying trees in the name of their god. The true European deities are all here. Though they may have different names there is one European religion!

Hail Pērkons!
Hail Perun!
Hail Taranis!
Hail the mighty Oak!
Hail all true Europeans!
