I agree wholeheartedly with everything but would inject: Goy is the standard Hebrew biblical term for a nation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goy

Mistranslated like many words in the KJV it almost takes on an inverse meaning, apparently found in older Syriac biblical-texts pre-Nicene so to say and much related to Aramaic: Aramaic (Arāmāyā, Syriac: ܐܪܡܝܐ‎) is a family of languages or dialects belonging to the Semitic subfamily of the Afroasiatic language family. More specifically, it is part of the Northwest Semitic group, which also includes the Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician. The Aramaic alphabet was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to the Hebrew, Syriac and Arabic alphabets.

The first thing a Germanic encounters on his way when he tries to do something, is another Germanic giving him a morality lesson ("You shouldn't do that, because... [insert some moralistic principle there]"). This attitude is systematic among us. The White man is an individualistic, moralistic coward.
No truer words were ever spoken.

What made Skadi somewhat interesting and unique was that it was this huge mix of so many different people interested in the Germanic.

Like, the case is, that people into costumes, viking re-enacting, had their own specialized forums/sites, but some of them came here. Nazis had their own special forums, some of them came here. Odinists had their own sites, some of them came here. Anthropology buffs had their own sites, some of them came here. History buffs had their own sites, some came here. A few WW2 buffs probably. A few Scandophiles, Icelandophiles, general Germanophiles. Traditionalists. Some of them came here.

Which made it a very diverse discussion, but not too diverse like the Phora or whatever, instead Skadi was diverse within Germanic limits.

I hope it manages to attract new and old users (it´s possible to send emails to old accounts, has that been done? Some will be dead but others alive.)

Anyway, I spend most of my net-dialog time around Nick Land´s circle now.

On www.xenosystems.net mostly. There´s actually one Germanicist (linguistics) that was influential in NRx (his stuff still is) he calls himself Nydwracu.

Any fellow who believes in Darwinism, etc. might as well join the local Judeomasonic lodge.

Christians believe that they are the sons of God and likewise the modenistic followers of the Old Religion believe that they are also the sons and daughters of the Divine.

The transvaluation or revaluation of values is a well known concept.

I think Skadi has room for all these types of discussion, this puts it best in words:

Which made it a very diverse discussion, but not too diverse like the Phora or whatever, instead Skadi was diverse within Germanic limits.
There are different kind of members on Skadi, who use it for different reasons.

I'm interested in current affairs, politics, alternative/independent/non-leftist news, paranormal, strange and occult topics, some science topics and some Germanic anthropology; some people make the mistake to equate it with racial typology/personal classifications, but it's much beyond that. Studying major important traits of a civilisation is also a topic of anthropology.

When I don't have the time or am not in the medium to get involved in a discussion I post news. I got criticised that I post too many 'scandalous' or 'negative' news. I post things like they are. We needn't be hiding in a rosy bubble talking exclusively about Germanic food, folk costumes and beautiful photos our grandparents took of a mountain or forest. Yes these are also topics and about Germanic things. Topics like your favourite food and whatever are 'fluff' topics, they are easy to talk about and just a little above lowbrow. Lowbrow can be ok but wishes to be avoided by many users including staff members, highbrow seems to be looked for but can be pretentious and stuffy. IMO the best topics meet somewhere in the middle, where users' response cannot be just based on personal opinion but needs to be supported by facts and sources.

However, there is one thing, which I think Ahnenerbe also summed up well in another thread and I think we, members, the staff and Skadi as a whole needs to consider,
Quote:

They're mostly looking for reasons to feel good about themselves, without contributing much to society as a whole. Hence the obsession with "immigrants" and "elections" instead of self-improvement and collective advancement. They just hope on some far right party to get them rid of the foreigners they are scared off, so that they can continue their mediocre lifestyle.

Just look on the forums and elsewhere online - the threads that get the most replies are those that involve "selfish" issues, emotional issues and issues where it is possible to blame or criticize someone. But the constructive topics get very little attention and people don't involve in them. It's always easier to focus on the negative and blaming others instead of improving ourselves...
Even on Skadi, which isn't a mainstream forum, "me" topics, with a personal point of view are the ones which get lots of attention and many replies. It's not only because people like to talk about themselves, but opinion topics give them an opportunity to feel altruistic and better about themselves, by sharing a personal opinion or story. This is a sign that human nature doesn't change a lot, even within a tribal/nationalist circle.

So there will be people who like to get engaged in a knitting circle kind of fashion. They want a familial group and to be part of it, they consider Skadi their 'online home'. So let them. This can be turned into a positive thing. Like Thulean said, knitting makes clothes.

Skadi is trying to create a Germanic tribal mindset, probably one of the reasons being that the 'white' mindset is ambiguous, vast, tarnished if not even dead and failed. But if we look outside of Skadi, how much of it do we really see? How much has Skadi reached beyond the pillars of its own community?

Even on Skadi, whose average member is more intelligent and better informed than the average member of the masses, we still have average on average, if you know what I mean. While the average Skadi member may have the right ideas(ideals), the average member of Skadi is not a successful politician, professor, polyglot, multiple-doctorate or masters holder, and sadly not even the ideal family man. Even the "it'll be ok as long as I have children" theory has not been widely put into practice by Skadi members, as a huge number of members, I'd even go as far as saying close to average number of members are single and childless. Those who have a partner and kids often don't share ideology with them. People often don't share their ideological thoughts outside of their Internet social circle/Skadi.

Often, people of the nationalist/tribal milieu have unfinished studies, no family and at best a history of ailed relationships, because they find the world around them too screwed up or they have certain lists of features they search in their partners. Skadi has the same issues the average word does, so instead of dodging and pretending we're too enlightened and evolved for them, maybe they should be head-on tackled.

Family and relationships for example. Here online communities could contribute much more than it's thought. Time and again people complain about the same thing in the relationships section: they can't find the right partner. Well, if that's something people have in common, the solution is to find the right partner. Here the internet can help, even if it's an international forum. A certain other forum had a singles section, facilitating people to change ideas and maybe consider a relationship. It wasn't anything big, just a forum created for people to post their profile and expectations. Then those looking for a partner would browse through the threads and if they found someone close to what they looked for, near they area, they'd send them a message. We have several Skadi couples already, some more known, some less known, their names don't even come to mind, anyway this idea could be takes to wider levels. People complain about Israeli and African dating services, that there is no Germanic dating service. Someone once had the idea about a Germanic sperm bank and they were quickly ridiculed because it was thinking too big.

Yes, the idea isn't to have children and that's it. This was the ideas of WNs decades ago and it's starting to be abandoned for it doesn't work. So sections like family and relationship could be used to discuss and install a certain eugenic mindset about quality.

Then it's this obsession about elections and referendums, that they're going tisane us and we'll be heroes by going to the polls - and if we're not, we are traitors or scum. Well it's not that simple either. Britain exited the EU, do we see a drastic change in politics, or the mindset of its population? Austrian elections got postponed again, do we see there also a drastic change in politics, or the mindset of its population? It's not that simple. We need to also pay attention to constructive topics like the environment, technology, things which are usually hated by people and considered too 'modern' for their tastes. The tribal/nationalist scene is filled with nostalgic romanticists who wish or claim to wish to have lived in another century past by. Why? We have technology and a wide area of reach created through the Internet. Don't hate technology because it facilitates immigrants; it's the politics and mindset that's responsible for opening doors. Take a look at the African boats, how much technology is really there? Technology and modernity separates Germanics as a people of inventors and scientists, compare them to people who still live in mud huts in the jungle. What's to idealise about that way of life? There have been a few communities in Germany who try to imitate an agricultural/Amish-based lifestyle. Aside from some mud throwing from antifa and the press, it hasn't resulted in anything special. People have tried them in the US and other countries as well. Ended up evicted due to sanitary reasons.

That's why topics like the environment belong very much on a Germanic forum. We need a clean and healthy base on which to construct what we want, and whether we like it or not, we also need scientists and people with masters or PhDs and a few famous people to represent/speak. If we had a few wealthy people to sponsor that would be even better. It's a group effort, and starts small, by discussing of ideas.

I think library threads are ok, but what I think is undeniable at this point is that Skadi needs more activity. People criticise the library threads because often they're the only kind of activity. And people want discussion to get involved in, usually the simple, easy-going and fluent type which they can get involved in between other worldly activities and not taking 3-5 hours to compose a post. Skadi has been online for over 6 months so we can't blame it on the fresh community feeling anymore.

One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that again, while Skadi users are on average more intelligent than the average person, the average Skadi user still isn't a genius, bookworm or has the same interest in a field as you, so if you're going to post library stuff about something of your interest, and want to get others interested - as in a reply to the thread or get a discussion going sort of way, post it in a way to provoke those reactions. I post a lot of news, these are mainly for reading and informing purposes, as in a look what's happening kind of way. I don't expect too many replies. If I want to generate replies I'll pose a question or add a poll. Remember, the "me" mindset. You can use it for your own results. People like to add their '2 cents' so they'll usually reply. Just my '2 cents'.

Some of the issues you raise involve age. Most people at Skadi are young and so do not have families or full professorships. They are interested in dating and social relationships. I am not but I have to accept this.

The issue of politics is different. Let's look at the biology here. You cannot have a breeding population without that population having a territory. Substitute Germanics for population and you see my issue. I really don't care if a Skadi member is a Nazi or a Communist or anything between just so long as they are a Preservationist and recognize the threat to their people. Mass immigration is a threat, a deep biological and cultural threat. Europe is the Germanic homeland. Any threat to the core homeland just ought to send Germanics ballistic.

Sometimes our interests intersect with issues here. Anthropology is one of those for me and I admit this is of huge personal importance to me. But way back years ago, I complained about the anthropology as it was being discussed at Skadi when it went off on a tangent. This was also true of what I have called the sewing circle issues. Now, both have been scaled back and so are more acceptable, at least to me.

I have another outlet, a more American forum. We all probably have something interest involving others closer to home where we can discuss issues impacting us locally. My "American forum" is much more militant than anything at Skadi and so I am often upset that Europeans don't seem to take the threat to their country and people seriously.
