On the Matter of Masculine and Feminine Energy

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

With the background in buddhism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoism I naturally seek to internally explain outer circumstances and events to myself. The Yin and Yang theory provides a natural and simple model for this because… it’s natural. Resting on this, I hold that for instance the current mainstream politics and relations between men and women are out of balance. 

The Masters of Energy, the Taoists, and he classic Taoist philosophy, states that men and women have energetic sexual differences. The Taoists believe that after a woman fully activates her female yin energy and a man fully activates his male yang energy, then and only then is it possible for men and women to completely appreciate and embody their opposite energy within themselves, So in Taoist thought, the primary functions of yin and yang energy differ. Yang energy characteristically tends to go in an outward direction, like fire or a beam of light. The opposite is true for yin energy, which characteristically tends to flow inward, to absorb, like earth and water. Yin energy wants to allow something to come into it, to let that something manifest and emerge, become nourished, and grow. Whereas the creative outflowing yang energy does not mind destruction, the inflowing yin energy loves growth and loathes destruction.

Taoist thought holds that a woman’s heart center, or middle tantien, is naturally more alive and activated than man’s. Correspondingly, a man’s lower tantien is naturally more activated than a woman’s. The heart center is ruler of human emotions and the lower tantien governs physicality.

So, what do I make of these basic truths?

Well, it’s not far fetched to see why there is so many divorces. The ordinary man of today is not as masculine, and the ordinary woman is not as feminine, as former generations. When both looses their clear differences in energy, men drops in yang and therefore yin rises and women drops in yin and therefor yang rises, the polarity between them decreases. In the interplay between them, nothing happens. There’s no charge, because the plusses and minuses respectively, has lost their strength.

Neither sex wants this, no matter what the feminists states. Women want their men to be masculine and men want their women feminine. When this is out of balance, contempt starts to grow in both. Men don’t want an aggressive masculine woman and women don’t want these weak, undecisive, submitting yes sayers of todays’ manboys.
We need to find our true natural states of being once again. We are meant to stay together, not to divorce. We are meant to make children, but that numbers are dropping as we speak. In Sweden every woman give birth to an astonishing number of 1.1 children. Which leads to the second concern of mine.

More and more people starts to raise their eyes towards the current state in the West. All of a sudden Sweden, the beautiful oasis of law and order, of very high economic standards and several centuries of peace and quiet, is the runner up in the rape statistics in the world. Hard life time working Swedish people are set aside in housing, pensions, schooling, jobs… The (often so called) refugees are given way more benefits and money, from Swedish tax payers ofcourse, than Swedes. In virtually every county they are given the houses and apartments right in front of the noses of the Swedes that have been queing to get one for years or even decades. Hey, the Swedes even occupying these from the start, are being thrown out, even though they have made their payments in time since they started renting it. Because we need to take care of the “refugees” and be nice. We would be racists otherwise..! I could go on forever with totally ridiculous examples. This plays out in every level of society today. The special treatment, not for the natives, but the invaders. It’s a clear case of genocide, the replacment of a people in its own country, taking place. And I do not blame the invaders. Why would I? If we are so stupid to give away our resources and culture, we are the ones who is to be blamed. If we give, ofcourse they will gladly take it.

How. Is. This. Possible? Feminist. Liberal. Matriarchy. Woah, what am I saying!? Well, read above. Men become weaker in their energy, leading to women getting out of balance, leading to more women in leading positions and so forth. Remember the feminine energy? It “wants to allow something to come into it, to let that something manifest and emerge, become nourished, and grow”…

We need patriarchy. We need strong masculine men, and we need strong feminine women. To secure the ideal of the nuclear family, to secure our people. This is the natural way, the way of our people since forever, where men and women are strong in their natural energies. Where men and women uplift each other in their different ways of expressing, in their different roles, supporting and nurturing each other.

But I believe we’ve reached the point of no return. There will be major conflicts and economic and social breakdowns. Then only family and tribe matters.

What is Taoism, part 1

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Meditation is an age-old system for resolving the essential spiritual challenges of living a life in a human body. Meditation has been used for thousands of years by every religious tradition to create life-sustaining rhythms and give people a way of finding peace, balance, compassion and a sense of morality.

Ancient Taoists had a unique perspective on meditation that is particularly relevant in the modern computer age where millions of inputs constantly bombard us and diminish our capacity to integrate the experiences of our life.

This serie of articles provides some background information on Taoism and the meditation system the Taoists created.

From the Taoist perspective, our age’s spiritual dissonance is a result of a profound disconnection between our bodies, hearts and souls. The Taoist solution is to reconnect and integrate ourselves, both internally and with our environment.

Oral tradition maintains that Taoism came from the Kunlun Mountains of northern Tibet to China between 4,000-5,000 years ago. Taoism is associated with three prominent texts: the 4,000-year-old I Ching or Book of Changes; the writings of Chuang Tzu; and the Tao Te Ching, the second most translated book in the world, composed 2,500 years ago by Lao Tse. Of Taoism’s two major branches, the Fire (yang) and Water (yin) methods, most texts currently available in the West focus on the Fire traditions.

relaxingbeingBruce Frantzis’ first meditation book, Relaxing Into Your Being, is the first to focus on the Water method. It emphasizes the practitioner’s viewpoint rather than a purely academic literary analysis. What is contained within its pages comes directly from teachings that were directly transmitted to him by the Taoist sage Liu Hung Chieh. The lineage to which they belong is directly linked in an unbroken chain to Lao Tse.

Within Taoism, there are two branches. The Chinese call them Fire and Water, or yang and yin.

The yang or Fire branch is a method of transformation. Through some act of conscious will or effort you seek to create the kind of mind you want. For example, if you have a tape in your head that says you are an utterly horrible person, then you might want to replace it with a tape that says you are really cool. Likewise, if you have a tape in your head that says you will never be okay, then you want to replace it with a tape that says you are okay now and will be forever. This is a path of transformation. The Fire approach to meditation essentially seeks to create some sort of hypnotic state, typically through the use of visualizations, which you may later choose to break down to free yourself from your conditioning. This is also the case in Tibetan buddhism, Vayrayana, which is somewhat more known in the West.

The yin or Water method aims to release everything that is not real, or relative, so all that remains is what is real, or constant, through whatever circumstances or changes that may occur. If you think you are a terrible person or unworthy of life, you want to have the intent to release that belief. You do this for any belief that prevents you from coming back to your core, where you can be fully awake. When people are awake they are not only comfortable with themselves but they are also happy with existence and the universe.

Many Westerners are under the mistaken impression that large numbers of Chinese are Taoists. In China, it is commonly held, however, that practicing Taoists are less than one percent of their country’s population. Most Taoist practices in modern China are commingled with facets of Buddhism and folk religion even though Buddhist and Taoist ways of looking at the same phenomena are often somewhat different.

Even still, a pure and distinct Taoist tradition continues to thrive.

Taoists have never really pushed to gain followers of their philosophy or religion. More often than not in Chinese history, they have actively discouraged membership or have gone underground. The last time the Taoists were really public and had patronage of the ruling class was during the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.). This period is considered by many historians to be China’s most creative.

Whether religions are exoteric (for everyone) or esoteric (for a select few) in nature, most will try to build as large an empire as possible when given the opportunity. Generally, they strive for cohesive influence over great numbers. Witness the giants: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. The major branches of Taoism have never demonstrated any particular desire to build theocratic empires using meditation or belief systems.

The Taoist tradition has always been essentially what could be called mystical rather than organizational. Practitioners of Taoism have been primarily focused on exploring the quintessential spiritual nature of human beings, including people’s relationship with their inner selves and to the environment and universe. Taoists consider almost everything that happens in the external world (e.g., beliefs, events, opinions, hopes, fears) to be what they refer to as “red dust” or that which stays for awhile and goes as the wind blows.

hexagramThe main Taoist work, the classic I Ching or Book of Changes attempts to comprehend change and changelessness from many different viewpoints. Through 64 systematically presented real-life situations called hexagrams, the I Ching teaches that everything in the world is in continual flux. Through meditation, a Taoist aims to discover that which never changes and is always present. Hexagrams, like the trigrams that combine to form them, are concerned with change and with the empty space in the midst of that which is changeless, the Tao.

US election aftermath

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

We’ve entered a new paradigm. And as always when this is more than obvious for the mass population, it has been foreseen by the few for quite some while. It is the flux of Nature, of the Yin and Yang if you will, at play. Trump has been elected by the American people as the most powerful political leader in the world. This shift will have multiple impacts globally. Let’s take a look at some of them that might occur (in the best of worlds, or to some extent).

  • trumpTrump as a masculine  man. Trump is an alpha, a leader, a masculine man. He will protect his country from invaders. No more illegal immigration and the deportation of the illegal ones who are already inside the US. Military withdrawal from bases around the world. The invading forces of global business will also have its battle. He will provide his fellow americans with jobs, bringing back industries from around the globe. He will provide them with hope, pride, dignity, industriousness. This will not come easy. The forces against him is virtually unlimited. Trillions and trillions of dollars, big media, big banks, big pharma, big food are intertwined and will do anything to stop him. I hope he will start a huge media corporate group to support the nowaday leading position.
  • From opposition to leading. Even if Trump has fooled everyone and is a lunatic, the shift is occuring. His win will greatly impact coming elections, especially here in Europe. The feminized, liberalized, weak culture marxism that has had the leading position for so many years will decrease. Nationalism is rising once again. This is the nightmare for them. If you want the most out of a population, you don’t want them to have a strong identity. You don’t want them to be strong in their mind and exclusive to their people. You want to control them, make them all alike and “equal”. You want the men to be less masculine. You would wanna weaken them by all means necessary. Trump’s win has made us talk about this and as of that he’s leading us to a brighter future. But it will be a viscious fight, economically and socially.
  • Conspiracies prooven right. Not all conspiracies of course… But I will not be surprised when some hearts gets broken or heads explode when the most dark secrets are being revealed. It will shock people how decieved we’ve been and how it’s all is setup. The most “true” facts about history will be uprooted. This is all good, but some won’t be able to take it in, some won’t be able to take it at all.
  • If nationalism is rising, more traditional values will take place and the feminization of this world will be seen as a “bug” in the evolution, a very strange time in history. I can only hope. As much of destruction feminism has done to us, the family structure with 50 % divorce rate is but one. Making both men and women strong again, in their respective roles, are exceedingly important.

One can only speculate about the future. What I truly believe will hold true is that it will be a whole lot more chaos, with or without Trump and nationalism. Hey, it is already occuring, that too. Economic, social and demographic chaos is upon us right now. The “multi” cultural experiment, which I like to call mono cultural (read 2nd point), has given us that. The economic booms and busts will not cease until we have implemented geoism. Acording to the 18-year cycle we’ll have a little recession in 2018/19 and a huge one in 2026, bigger than ever. Along with climate refugees, we are building up to a dirty mess. More conflicts, more wars, lack of resources, more suffering.

Too negative? Maybe. I like to think of it as realism. I might be prooven wrong. But not in the long run… I truly believe the traditional nation state is lost. The mixing and blending of non compatible cultures has created this. That’s why I can not be a nationalist. I wish could be, but Sweden does not exist anymore. The political leaders even say so; the old Sweden is no more. We now live in the “New Sweden” and we the natives have to accept this and integrate ourselves with the new “Swedes”!

svenskaflagganI love (the old) Sweden! It is so beautiful. I’m born here. I am one with the soil here, with the waters and mountains, with my people, with my ancestors. But it’s gone.

And if it’s gone, and if the future looks like I predict, what would be the obvoius way forward? Band together with the closest. To hold my nearest and dearest close. Build strong bodies, minds and hearts with chosen brothers and our families. Creating a completely self sustained strong tribe. Yes, I believe in tribalism. That’s maybe even worse for the mentioned weak, feminized liberal society. That’s racist, fascist, sexist and xenophobic…

Land Value Taxation – for a vital country side, wildlife, climate and economy

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Land Value Taxation (LVT) wouldn’t just create job opportunities och support an economy regeneratively. It is also the key to protection of wildlife, biodiversity and austereness of resources. The LVT system make sure we are all sharing these resources of nature. Either through physical access to them or by economic compensation from others’ use, extraction and pollution. That sustains a greater feeling of coherency and communion in a society and respect for Nature.

Natural Capital

The funding of a government, a state, should derive from the Natural Capital, that is the gifts of Nature. These are often called Ecosystem Services today, but the understanding of this concept might not be totally clear. Todays’ tax system permits privatization of the monopoly value of these, without taxing them. This over time leads to a concentration of unearned income, so called Free Lunches, to a handful of people. It also leads to reduction of the economy’s effectiveness.

vacantlotWhen a society progress and becomes ever more wealthy, the Natural Capital will constitute an ever larger share of the total wealth, since they are finite resources. But the monopoly value will also be handed to ever fewer people, most often banks, landlords and improductive financial speculators. They “catch” the economic value (economic rent in this terminology) which we all without exception contribute to just by existing. And they make huge profits from this. In this way entrepreneurship and the productive members of the society are massively drained.

A fee on the use of the Natural Capital have got a much bigger positive effect on economy than taxes on labor and trade. These are directly damaging. The LVT (the fee that is) stimulates both work and industry and at the same time as the protection of the lands  and nature resources continually strengthens.

A couple of other effects we’ll see is that land already in use will be more efficiently used, investments in the poor areas, the sprawl of the cities over fertile soil seizes. The construction will be more vertical and unused city spaces (vacant lots) will come into production. Green energy is the obvious choice. Poverty decreases and the national wealth redounds to the citizens.

Value to wildlife

As soon as one of the gifts of Nature are “destroyed”, e.g. lands are taken, minerals or oil extracted or deforestation, the value of the remaining resource are increased. A fee (LVT) would be the consequence of the extraction. Through this fee we’ll make sure that what we take, we use as effectively as possible. We will also give back the lands we do not need  and this is how we create more wildlife and the biodiversity exponetially arise from the ashes.

Creation of work opportunities in rural areas, agriculture and nature conservation

In todays’ system we support the development to more intense methods in agriculture, unnecessary suffering of animals, oil based chemical use and urbanization of people and money. Fuel, fertilizers and chemical pesticides are under huge subsidies and doesn’t reflect the true cost of society and environment.

biodynamicfarmerIf we abolish the taxes on labor and trade, we’ll create more jobs, and even more so, we’ll see more balance between the cities and the rural areas. Many will choose to settle outside of the cities. The most economical methods in farming will be used, that is, the organic approach. More people at the country side, and more producing food. Enterprises within tourism and wildlife guiding are probably some other effects. The reconnection of nature increases altogther.

Why other systems has failed

There’s been many attempts to support wildlife and protect the resources. Raised taxes as a consequence. Many of these attempts has had small gains and only led to higher land prices and more wealth to landlords. Grants to the landlords, subsidies for agriculture and policy for how we use the lands are a catastroph for wildlife and biodiversity.

Conclusion

The LVT system is commonly known within the new academic movement of Climate Economy as the only system that ensures a growing economy with increased employment, protection of biodiversity, wildlife and nature resources. It is also supported by the foremost economists the last couple of centuries. A Norwegian investigation 2013 concluded that a nation should primarily be funded through a LVT. Quote: “A known result from tax theory is that a tax that corrects external costs should be the nations first source of income. (E.g. if you pollute you pay). These taxes creates desired adjustments which improves the function of the economy. But these taxes are rarely enough so economic rent (Jordränta in Swedish) taxes should be the second income source. (Economic rent is an unearned income for the landlord produced by nature and the surrounding society. Every shop, road, school or whatever, increases the economic rent. In theory economic rent taxes doesn’t create distorsions or influence the efficiency of economy. When the potential of external correcting taxes and economic rent taxes are exhausted, only then the nation should use taxes on labor, VAT etc since these taxes creates unwanted changes and affects the economy negatively.” Note that the burden of taxation doesn’t increase, it’s only a shift in deriving sources.

Land Value Taxation – the solution for agriculture

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The moral argument for a LVT is a that the land value is created through the efforts of society as a whole and not by the formal land owner. The value increases when roads and housing is built, when communications is added or every other type of social services is created next to the actual site.

For agriculture the land value is also a reflection of natural advantages such as topography, climate, and soil quality, which no man has created. The geoclassical economic school also see the value of the land as a resource of the commons, and why the community can and should use this a means of covering its costs.

With a LVT on agriculture the farms would have to pay rent to hold the land, but not the improvements such as buildings and so forth. It’s important to understand that the least valuable land would have no taxes or a very small one, since it draws no value from surrounding advantages as mentioned before. A forest garden for example inside the city center would have the highest tax in this case.

Without a LVT the society needs to tax everyones labor and capital gains deriving from the labor. Shortly, a tax on everyones efforts and individual capacities replaces a tax on natural advantages and space, Instead these are monopolized by private owners. This distorts farming and rural economy in 3 ways:

Depopulation of country side 

mechanisingagriAs the tax system is setup today, a farmer in order to be able to pay for two workers, needs to use everything that the third worker creates. But if he compensate this by increased mechanisation, he gets tax reliefes for his capital investments. In this way increased mechanisation and technology has replaced human labor. Combination machines, chemical fertilizers, GMO, pesticides and industrialised breeding add to this. Fewer and fewer are hired and the incentive to use free labor from the students of agri schools increases. This creates significant negatives for the society as a whole. When fewer are hired within the farming sector, the need for shops, transports, schools and medicare rapidly vanishes from the country side. It is depopulated, economy and human capital is urbanized. Physical job opportunities decrease and we are distanced from nature.

Meat production, which is more labor intensive, is having hard times holding it together. The tradional multiculture farming, where the growing of crops was rotated with pasture land with organic fertilizing from the animals, has been replaced with big monoculture farms addicted to chemical substitutes. This also means that while fertile soils are not taken into production, we import meat and fodder from developing countries and supports the devastation deforestation of the rain forests. The fodder is also totally unnatural for the animals, soy and corn, which ofcourse makes the animals, and us, sick. This also raises the prices locally in the developed countries.

Increased speculative value on farm land

The second destructive effect of not extracting the rent value, is that the investment of farm land is encouraged by the future increase of value, and not solely for farming itself. This is often the case in the places between rural and urban sites where the urban expansion is high. Since one can use ones land as a safety for bigger loans, this leads to ever bigger unused soils. All of this increases the price on land, out of reach for the young generation. Taxing labor and capital increase the cost of hiring which forces us to import the food and makes the farmers addicted to huge subsidies, which in turn are finansied by the taxes on labor. These subsidies are based on the actual space the land owner holds and not what he or she actually put into use. This encourages the land owner to hold more land than they need, only to get the subsidies, which also obstructs young initiative. Besides, the global subsidy system is holding the economical growth down in the third world making it hard to act both locally and internationally. The extremely poor will continually be starved.

Loss of marginal land

To tax labor pushes marginal land out of production since you must use more resources on it, on a given space, than in the case of the more advantegous sites. This explains greatly the struggle to make marginal land affordable plus the general under use which carachterizes farm land.

Conclusion

fb_img_14333963844021The shift from tax on labor and capital to a Land Value Tax would solve these conflicts. It would re-balance labor and machinery and create more work opportunities. It would populate vitalize the contry side once again. With a LVT few would choose to not use the land productively. Speculation would greatly cease to exist since you would want to have an income on all of your land, to cover the cost of the tax. The prices on real estates would drop. It would create work where it is needed, that is, where people actually lives. This whole LVT system would make us use rotating regenerative methods and recycling rather than the use of chemically produced goods. We are heading against the recycled society where agriculture has shown us the ways to turn the trend of biological diversity loss, pollution of the biotop and biosphere and impoverishment of the soils. With a LVT on place the organically produced food nearby is the obvious choice!

Nationalgeoism – the society every nationalist should love, part 2

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

In the first part I introduced to you the concept of Land Value Taxation. Instead of funding society through taxation of what we contribute, from everyones Labor and the fruit of it, the Capital, it is possible to do it through Land, that is, from what we take from the commons, the resources of the nature. Now let’s take a look at what the effects would be once implemented.

First I just want to mention that nearly everyone who’s got this properly presented for him agree with the common sense of it. I don’t believe it’s explicitly a nationalist who would love it. I’m not a nationalist myself. I would like to be, but it’s impossible today. I’ll come back to that in a future article. Yes, the headline adresses nationalists. This is out of 2 reasons; we speak the same language and, ever since I was introduced to geoism, this was one of my first thoughts; the nationalist society really should adopt the geo ism of economy rather than the social.

deforestationOk, let’s hit it. An obvious first statement; what you tax you get less of. A few examples:

  • Tax labor and you get less opportunity of jobs. With a tax on Land instead of Labor, and Capital which enrich Labor, you can only imagine what that would mean…
  • Tax extraction of fossil fuels and the green energy boom is a fact.
  • Tax deforestation and conventional fertilizers and the organic farming boom is a fact. (No no, we do not need the conventional farming to feed the population. I’ll come back to that too.)
  • Tax land properly instead of the buildings and the land we actually use will be calibrated thoroughly to cover the cost to hold it. E.g. we would rather build vertically than horisontally. The more you take, the higher the tax… Those who wants to live in the cities will do so and we wouldn’t take more land than necessary, land that is necessary for producing food, for wildlife and biodiversity.
  • Tax extraction of minerals heavily (they are virtually given away for free in Sweden today, to private enterprises) and we won’t see the devastating environmental effects of today. Note: the wedding ring of gold will not be taxed, that’s Capital. Only the extraction of the raw material itself… So you see, this is an example of taxing what you take and not what you produce. If you can make a living out of what you take, that’s fine. The effect of this will be that only what people actually need and is willing to pay for will be produced, and only the foremost products  will see daylight. Maybe the “consumerism” might be more balanced too, right?
  • pollutionTax pollution of the commons accordingly. In addition I suppport a Law on Ecocide. If you poison our waters, air and soils, go fuck yourself!

A few examples, but what does this mean for the average guy? Well, a pretty big issue here in Sweden is the tax on engine fuels, i.e. gasoline and diesel. The Watermelons (green socialists) wants to raise the taxes. The opposing sides says that would be the end of the rural areas. “The rural dweller needs to transport themselves to work and social services long distances.” And yes, that is the case, but in a geoistic society they will have no taxes on labor and very low taxes on the land they occupy for housing. This outweighs. As in any case of calculating taxes, this will of course also happen in this new case scenario.

Within the existing system many are unwillingly driven from the country side to the cities. Those who actually wants to live in the city will continue to do so, willing to pay for the value everyone partake in producing there. And the possibilty to live at the country side increases, due to more affordable site value. Those who really want to live there can more extensively do so.

grassrootsWhat about the production of food? I have an article solely dedicated for this issue coming soon. It’s one of my main interests and the entrance into geoism itself, since I discovered the ultimate Key for making our soils and food regenerative once more. Stay tuned!

Nationalgeoism – the society every nationalist should love, part 1

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Many nationalists have a strong conviction and sense for libertarianism. To live in complete freedom and liberty and the right of ruling their own personal life as they see fit. The traditional political term and societal structure in the nationalist mind is as everyone knows national socialism. I would like to introduce to you the more robust and harmonious society of National Geoism.

We are all aware of the booms and busts of economy. It has been with us for as long as records exists. Seems as we’ve accepted this to be a natural phenomenon. Something we can’t avoid and which we just have to accept. This is not the case. It’s made by humans and we can change it.

I’ve studied political economy for a couple of years in my spare time. I have read quite a few books, tons of articles and science. I’ve followed, listened and talked to the most distinguished minds of political economy for thousands of hours.

churchilllvtThe solution is very simple yet of course a total remake of a society. We can smooth the booms and create an economically and socially thriving society. Today, with this economic system, everything and everyone are in debt; private, corporations, institutions and governments. How is this possible? Through the tax system and the creation of money.

The creation of money is not my specialty, so I will mention it briefly; Whenever someone take a loan more money is created. You fill out the form and, poof, the numbers are there, created out of thin air by privately owned banks. Watch this short and informative video.

Now, what about the tax system? Well, let’s begin with the basics. There is 3 factors of production; Land, Labor and Capital. The term Land stands for the resource, be it actually land or oil, water, fish, animals, electromagnetic spectrum, space orbits, minerals etc. Labor is the actual labor one execute. Capital is not only money, but also all the tools and machinery involved when producing, and the final product or service. Today we are taxed almost solely from the two latter factors. This means that everything you create by your own hands are in part taken from you, to fund the government. This seems like a solidarian approach doesn’t it..? We are all contributing to society, first through our labor and then the fruits of our own labor too. And, this is naturally rigged by the elite, (this too…). There is no “trickle down” economy. It’s a fraud. I encourage you to watch an informative 7 minute video instead of me making this article too long.

vacantlotThe simple solution; instead of taxing what we already gives to society, through milking from the labor and capital, there’s more than enough to fund the government through what we take from society instead. This means that if you get yourself a plot of land you’ll pay way more in city centre than somewhere far from social services, roads, railways, shops… The more value of the location (not the building itself because that’s Capital), the higher the tax. Tariffs would be implemented on how much fish you take, or minerals etc. and how much you pollute the commons. This is the reform called Land Value Taxation (LVT), and it is to be implemented not over night but running through a decade or two, perhaps faster.

Is this possible? Is there enough “Land” to actually fund everything? Yes, the empirical facts says so. It is actually implemented in a few areas to various degrees throughout the world. Data from these and for instance from Australia, which have the numbers running from 1979-2006, shows this.

This is not a new thing. The most sharp minds of economics knows this. Henry George is the one we most associate with LVT. David Ricardo and several other classical economists as well as numerous Nobel Laureates thinks this is the way to build a sustainable, resilient and just society. Just in the sense “keep what you create and pay for what you take”.

masongaffney

Speaking of Nobel Laureate, I really must mention Mason Gaffney. In a sain world he would’ve gotten the prize numerous times. For the more in depth reader, his work is a gold mine!

I would be ok with this… The society of geoism, which actually manifests the ideas of both capitalism and socialism.

In part 2 I will outline the effects of a LVT in different areas.

Note: when you start looking this up you’ll probably see at least 2 other names associated with Land Value Taxation. Georgism, of course from the source Henry George, and Geolibertarianism. A person who calls himself a Georgist wants to state his devotion to the works of Henry George and a Geolibertarian is stating the sacred need for liberty.

Reclaim the Virtues

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Since the dawn of my current life, I’ve had the conviction that we are becoming weaker for every generation that surfaces the Earth. I believe that conviction holds to this day. Everything what “modern” life means weaken us. The modern life means a more “comfortable” lifestyle. We are protected from the shaping of exterior environment. We don’t usually travel by foot anymore. Most of us spend the day sitting or are at least pretty much physically inactive. We eat and drink far less nutricious foods than the ones before us. We are exposed for a vast spectrum of chemicals and radiation and unnatural ideas propagated through elite controlled mass media. If that wasn’t enough, artificially generated mass immigration, weakens us by the very numbers.

Imagine meeting a man of the 8th century, or even an early 1900s man. You wouldn’t stand a chance in harshness, let alone in a fight. I highly doubt there is anyone left who would survive a bear attack AND crawl the 200 miles (320 km) back like Hugh Glass did in 1823.
Today most can be compared to the monks of Lindisfarne in the year of 793, or as the peaceful group The Hound in the Game of Thrones series ended up in in the last season.
Or just think of this; the sucess of the Icelandic soccer team in the European Championship lead worlds’ media to visit the wonder on the island. They visited and interviewed the Icelandic people, watched training and so on. Once the assistant head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson brought up a concern for the future though. He told us that when he was young, they played outside, no matter the weather conditions, and that this shaped them into hardness. Today, they have got all these nice and warm indoor halls, and he wondered what this could mean for the coming generation… Are they weakened..? Oh yes, they, we, are.
One more comparison; the indoor cat and the tiger.
We think we are good loving people of ever “higher” standards and consciousness, and that this is strength and what will protect and guide us when meeting obstacles and threats. Yeah right…

Humans are ascending in consciousness though. That is the positive side of for example social media. Never before we’ve had this opportunity to share information. Thanks to this we are for instance “waking up” to the rigged game of the elite. You know what I mean; Wikileaks, Snowden and other sources from big banks, big pharma, big food and so on, has provided us with so much, and through the platforms of social media everone is able to get this information. But as always, no positive without the negative. This side of it is very strong. Rarely I see any parent really present with their children. And I meet a lot of families daily, not to say what everone can see just roaming the streets… All there is, seems to be in the hands, the cell or pad. It’s really really sad. Over and over, the child seeks the parents’ attention, until one day, he or she gives up. Do they, the adult that should guide their child through life, really think they will have a great relation onwards!? Fuckers!

We need to take responsibility! Responsibility for the sake of personal health, for the sake of our offspring, for the sake of our people, culture and identity, for the honor of us and our ancestors which layed out EVERYTHING we are and enjoy today. We really need to shape up, if we ever want to sustainably evolve, if we ever want to pass on a better Earth and if we ever want to pass on a heritage to speak of to our descendants. This has always, and still remains, the responsibility of the ones alive.

A good starting point for us in the North, or of this heritage, is to reclaim the Nine Noble Virtues. These were the guiding commandments, the moral code of conduct, of the Pagans, hat is, us, up until the adoption of the invading Christianity. They are gleaned from the ancient Germanic sources of the Poetic Edda, the Icelandic sagas and Germanic folklore.

NINE NOBLE VIRTUES

COURAGE

StandingGroundThe word courage derives from the Latin word for heart. It comes naturally first. Without it one can not live up to ones own code of honor and ethics. It takes courage to live according to your beliefs, despite what others may think, say or do to you. In this politically correct society, it takes a lot of courage to speak your truth. Just a small example; only because everyone else is handing an Ipad to their 2-year old, or serving jam on the on the oatmeal for them, doesn’t mean I do it. No fucking way! Instead, I might sit down and sketch something with my children, instead I serve them plain berries..!
It applies to all aspects of life, not only to that fearless Viking going in for battle. Stand your ground!

 

 

TRUTH

Lying is not the way of the true Warrior. It’s an act of cowardice. You should only speak the truth, and what you personally know to be true, both to others, but even more important, be true to yourself. If you don’t know it’s true, or if it is false, shut the fuck up! And realize, it is your truth that matters for you. Others may have their own truths. Respect and leave it at that. Doesn’t matter.
But, sometimes lying IS the right way. Nothing is black and white. You might be lyed to yourself, and in this case, lying back could mean it is the way forward. The true Warrior understands this, and have to evaluate any action coming from pure intention.
The truth can sometimes hurt. For instance you could hurt the feelings of your partner or brother, and it might be hard for you too. Regardless, speak the truth. You are not doing him or her, or YOUSELF, any favor, when lying.
Truth fosters Courage. Courage fosters Truth.

HONOR

GimliHonorThis one is the is the hardest to point at. You have this personal thinking of your own internal honor. Do you stand up for everything that you are? Do you take full responsibility for all your deeds? Are you actually leading your life accordingly? Nevertheless, it bowls down to what OTHER people think of you. Do your kinsmen think you are trustworthy and competent? Do they come to you for advice, without doublechecking it? Are you a valuable member of your tribe, and how high is that value?
Lacking in honor, and that is for your kinsmen to decide, affects the honor of the whole tribe, and every member of your tribe, negatively for sure. Your deeds will, hopefully, be remembered long after your death. Make them count!

FIDELITY

Simply means being faithful. Faithful and loyal to one self and ones truth. Of course faithful and loyal to the gods, tribe, family and friends. The true Warrior will defend his gods, ancestors, tribe, family and friends no matter the consequences. It is non-negotiable and the Vikings lived by this. If a kinsman were murdered, he had to seek vengeance and make things right again. It was not a matter of revenge, just an obligation to the Virtue of Fidelity. A true Warrior is a true friend, and a to be a true friend, honor, loyalty and faithfulness is required. This goes absolutely for the friendship of the gods and ancestors as well.
An oath is the ultimate expression of Fidelity. Breaking an oath is seen as the worst of offence and could in the Elder Period mean death.

DISCIPLIN

To be true to your ethics, principles, virtues and standards, you need self-disciplin. In doing so, you are leading by example and the honor of you, and your tribe, amplifies. To succeed, in whatever task, you are bound to have self-disciplin. To achieve Self Reliance, which is another Virtue, you need disciplin.

He who lives without discipline dies without honor.
Icelandic Proverb

HOSPITALITY

This does not mean that you give away all your possesions to every beggar. The practice of the Virtue of Hospitality were present in almost every ancient society. It was both a necessity for survival and strengthened the bonds between people. This was practiced both with known kins and with strangers. The pilgrim, the trader or just a wanderer could knock on the door, be invited, handed dry clean clothes, food and drinks and offered shelter. Besides this custom, which secured the guest, and having the same offered to you when travelling yourself, they had this thought that it could as well be a god visiting, an Aesir or Vanir, in human disguise. The gods of Asatru are known to wander around Midgard…
The Virtue of Hospitality is a concept of sharing. Once the guest were provided, he or she was expected to sing songs, tell tales or news and perhaps hand the host some gifts.

INDUSTRIOUSNESS

Not only for survival, but also for the evolution, to make things happen at all, you need to push yourself. It is the willingness to work hard. Laziness has no place here, BUT, the Virtue of Industriousness also means to rest and feast intentionally. You need a vision, you need to work focused and hard to achieve it, and you also need appropriate rest to be able to push further next day. Tacitus was very confused when he met with the Germanic tribes; The ferociously, almost out of this world, violent and ravaging warriors, just lay there on the ground, resting in peace, eating and talking.
Having a vision and work towards it, achieving the goals, strengthens the mind (and often the body…) and brings contentment and joy, enhancing ones confidence and energy, which serves as a pretty nice foundation for next goal.

SELF RELIANCE

Independence and not being depended on others, is the Virtue of Self Reliance. It starts with yourself. You have to strengthen yourself, keep your “stuff” together, to make your family self reliant. It then stretches outward, making the tribe, clan and nation self reliant and independent. It’s the complete opposite of todays’ global corporatocrazy..!
To be self reliant and independent means freedom. Noone wants to be a thrall, yet today nearly everyone is.
The strife for complete freedom and not being dependent is the path of the true Warrior.
Self reliance brings sustainable, thriving and positive exchange between people and peoples. Know yourself, know your identity and destiny.

PERSEVERANCE

This is the ability to continue the work despite failure. Just recognize the failure, without judging. Even the most successful fails. It’s part of life. Evaluate, learn and get back at it. Don’t ever give up. Strive even higher! The one who persevere will succeed.

As you see, the Nine Noble Virtues are intertwined, linked with one another. I believe these Virtues served our ancestors well. They should for us too. They are for me. Although they are far far from mastered, I aim for it. The one which is pretty much outdated, is Hospitality, since we are not living in a society where we’ve got this custom. Instead, “we” burn thousands of cars, rapes and see a friendly gesture as a sign of weakness. Therefor, I am pretty much restrictive who I would let into my home, or my life.

Foot note: “true Warrior” means foremost the person who has vowed and continously strive to better himself, to master himself in all aspects, physically, the mind, energy and in spirit. and ultimately to reach true knowledge of all there is.

Man and Wife vs Husband and Wife – the dramatic change in the roles of the sexes

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

There is a lot of unbalanced relations between men and women. In Sweden 50 % of all marriages ends up in divorce. There’s a lot of factors contributing to this trend, such as feminism… Oh shit, I was about to write a whole list, but I won’t. Most of the factors is linked to feminism, so I will write about that in a coming article. Today we take a look at a very interesting development in terms of language, which in its powerful way paints how our convictions on the roles of the sexes has changed dramatically. 

I know the vast majority is struggling. We are many who feels somehing is wrong. Or that it should be somewhat different. There’s an internal fight. Our urges and instincts speaks to us, but the exterior world of the society and our partner speaks different, and we succumb for the latter. This creates a lot of frustration, and imbalances between the sexes. ‘Cause you know, it all starts with the man. If he’s balanced, the woman folllows.  Ok, I will get back to this. I just wanted to share a teaser here.

Since we are a quite lost in terms of relations, identity and culture, it is very useful to look at how our ancestors used to live, and to bring back that connection to them. Many surely thinks we had a viscious patriarchy. Nothing could be further from the truth. The totally dominant and viscious man, in a relationship, is not our traditional ways, but the ways that came from the Middle East.

Our culture in Europe has changed significantly since Christianity entered the lands of ours’. We used to live in tight, homogenous tribal societies. Then the Judeo-Christian values took over. The female lost her status and everyone was to either pledge faith to the 1 god, or face the most evil punishments and death. Let’s take a look at one aspect underpinning this change in the roles of the sexes.

When we get married we must use the phrase “man and wife” sometime during the ritual in the church. Hearing the word “man”, one instantly refers to the male human being, but we do not use the word “woman”, as in “man and woman” during the actual ritual. Why is that? We take a deeper look into history.

In the original Germanic languages, the word for the male and female humans were “wer” for male and “wif” for the female. We still have this connection through Latin, where “virile” means masculine (wer). We can also see it in the concept of “werewolf” which means man-wolf, but literally “male-wolf”. It wasn’t until later we began to use the word “man” for the male. “Mann” means divine human mind. According to Tacitus, the Germanic peoples thought they were derived from the first human being whos name was Mannu. The original understanding in the Germanic world was that both males and females could be “mann”, divine human mind. This is the Indo-European heritage. The Veda states that they were derived from Manu, the first King who saved mankind and the sacred scriptural lore.
So for the priest in the Christian tradition to pronounce the couple “man and wife”, literally mean; “I now pronounce you “divine human mind and female”. This is the transition when we adopt the Christian religion, which had adopted the previous Hebrew understanding of the bible. So, it seems that the female is thought to be the servant to this divine human mind… Very unequal! Here we clearly see how we changed the way we looked at the roles of the sexes. Earlier, the female had an equal worth as the male and was highly regarded and praised by males and society as whole. The old Hebrew ways are that the wife is there to serve and obey her man.

The traditional way of looking at this is completely different. Wife, as I earlier stated, means female. Husband (an old English word) means house bound (male). (Husbonde in Swedish…) “I now pronounce you house bound male and wife.” At a first glance one could think that this is the other way around… That the male were stuck to the house, farm and family and almost “castrated”, but it is actually a sign of high social status. As a young man in the Germanic tribe, one were required to be a warrior. Being a warrior, he had to be single, to have no possesions, not to own any property, and thus required to be able to travel all around their tribal territory, defending against any enemies or to go on a raid etc. So they were soldiers. If he would have had a wife and children, property and so forth, he would be attached to these. That could be very negative if he were captured as a hostage, and the fear of loosing his life would be greater, since he had to “be there” for his wife and children. As an unattached warrior he would neither having to worry about the life and wellbeing of his loved ones, who also could be targeted to enemies. So not being attached to anything, made him totally focused on his status as a warrior. And then, after a given time in service, and being successful, he was allowed to be a “house bound”. This means he could have a property, build house and start a family. He then had other appointments, within the tribe, such as taking care of the society as a whole and voting on laws and so on. Successful in this area could mean he rised to be a chief.

Reading Tacitus and the masterpiece of Östen Kjellman and others, it is clear this was a very harmonious society, where men AND women were equally highly regarded. They were both equally important, for life, family and tribe. They lived in harmony and balance, mostly having different functions (there were female warriors also, called Shield Maidens), in between and with Nature. In this particular case it is reflected in the phrase “husband and wife”. It is completely different from the adopted Roman, Judeo-Christian mindset, where the male represented the divine powers and the female were to obey and serve him, giving him children and had virtually no value beyond this.

I would suggest the importance of taking a look at OUR ways, tradition and identity, instead of keep on these misleading tracks, of which feminism is one, where we are trying to fight the ways of the invading desert religions. It’s way more powerful, strengthening and evolving.

Connection with the roots – the importance of our ancestral heritage

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

“Ancestral heritage. Who gives a fuck? What does that have to do with anything? We are here and now, the dead are the dead.” Some, I guess many, in the secular, atheistic minds of Swedes, would likely respond like this if they would read this headline. In fact I have met them, although I also have met many others, but they often only desperately tries to hang on some idea, any theory, of something more, something bigger, that could bring some light into their lives. They don’t really know what to believe, but it feels comforting that it migth be something more “out there”. And yes, there is, as within.

I am no exception. I was raised in a secular, atheistic home. Any spiritualism was ignored. If it ever came to the table, it was ridiculed. One might wonder if this is a natural development? I mean, we were deeply rooted in our own ways in the North. Deeply connected to each other, to ancestors, to nature and universal forces. Here comes a religion, (rooted in the Middle East, yes christianity), sweeps in and, through mass slaugther and deception, takes over. We hang on as long as it is possible. But we are uprooted, no our roots are chopped off, and like the wonders of agricultural science, we are planted without roots in a nutrient solution, housed in a green house, and told new stories. We now think we have another heritage, but for many of todays’ modern societies, there’s something not feeling quite right about this and many are leaving the Svenska Kyrkan (Swedish Church), where we were all autoincluded by birth up until 1996. This leaving is probably due to two reasons; we are mostly non-believers and we therefor see no reason to pay the tax to the church..!

“Everything faded into mist,
the past was erased,
the erasure was forgotten,

the lie became the truth.”
– George Orwell

Well, ok we live in this green house, nurtured by artificals and no chance to see the whole picture. We are virtually cut off nature and put in some house with no chance of setting us free. But, it is made of glass. We do see something! It is out there, something interesting! We wonder… Meanwhile we are told the most viscious stories about who we were that had not much to do with truth.  We are now brain washed since millenia, but the winds are changing. The green house doesn’t stand firm any longer. It crumbles and some of us has against all odds been uplifted by this wind and once again been put in the soils outside where we can breath and communicate with all the organisms of the soil, waters and air. We are rooted, free, true and genuine! At last we have an identity that is in sound, that is in fact who we are.

I know there is a vast majority who wouldn’t see the difference between a nutrient solution/green housed tomato, compared to a tomato from its natural habitat in the soil and not treated with chemicals. But there is. There is differences in quality. The amount of good stuff raises. The color, taste and smell are intensified. The amount of water is decreased in favor of fruit pulp. The life force increases! We can see this in the ability to shield off pathogen factors and the length of time we can store them. Both scenarios produce food, but there is a diffenence. My point is we as humans are no different from this. Just give it a thought or two. We really are the sum of our thoughts. speech and actions, as well as what we allow ourselves to put in mentally and through the mouth.

Without a true identity of who we are, we are nothing. Identity gives meaning, order and structure, strength and trust, empowerment and comfort, joy and happiness. The identity brings tradition, the way of life of that particular tribe. The word tradition stems from the Latin word “traditionem” which means transmission, presentation, handling over. The generations preceding our own are the ones who transmitts the customs, practices and beliefs to us. They do this during their lives, and afterlives, right now and forever, through their own actions, writings, stories… They support us and strengthen us in the very now, if we allow them to. They want to be remembered. Don’t you? I surely want to! I don’t want to be nothing, forgotten when my own children have passed away. I will leave foot prints, foot prints that matter, that supports and strengthen my decendants. For that to happen I have to stay in connection to both the ancestors and the coming generations, the ones who are me.

If I wouldn’t have my identity I would be an easy prey for the present dogmas, easily led by the outlined agendas of the transnational flaws of the elit, the so called invisible hand. I wouldn’t have firm ground to stand upon, and I would spend energy on those and that which doesn’t matter, energy that is needed for my own tradition and folk, for my self and the betterment of me. It all starts within, and the work must continue every day, all the time, to achieve the best version of me possible. That’s where I choose to spend my energy.

It’s not only important we acknowledge and cherish our heritage but we should also live as well as we possibly can. To achieve the greatest version of ourselves and to pass this heritage on to our descendants. Because everything we do and are affects the peace and living of both the descendants lives and the afterlives of our ancestors (which in virtually all native cultures are thought to be the same as our descendants. We take rebirth in our tribe…)

To acknowledge our tradition, our ancestors, is the way forward. We are the very sum, the latest update of our forebearers that fought and survived and bred us. Only the strongest of the strongest succeded and this is our heritage, both within and without. So always aim to better yourself, cherish yourself, and the causes of your body and mind. Cherish the very soils of our ancestors, that which they took care of for us, to be remembered and to serve us.
