Folk-Ecology

via Inglinga

Tribe, Nation and Folk

We promote a return to a form of Tribalism based upon local initiatives with the Shires  as the backbone of the English Folk-Nation. Only through breaking free of the European Union, the New World Order and all other forms of the rampant Globalism can we return to a healthy nation and a healthy world-order. But we see the need for a European Imperium where the Free Nations of Europe and the White World would work together towards a healthy and ordered world without the problems we face today. 

The English Folk-Nation would have as its basis the ancient Shires, which are regions that would work on their own initiative on local issues. Once the right issues are tackled, without interference from the greed of profit and gain, then sanity will reign once more in this land. Food must be produced locally for local people (English Folk) and the simple means of life tackled locally too, thus getting rid of pollution through carting goods for hundreds or thousands of miles - goods which can be produced at a local level. 

Natural Farming -

Farming should return to small-scale local farming on smaller farms, reviving the healthy English hedgerows, where locally produced goods are sold and distributed to local people as far as possible. The mentality of thus providing a service to one's Folk-Community would replace the unhealthy mental attitude that seeks profit and gain from everything. Smaller farms and smaller pieces of growing land would mean the return to organic growing without the need for chemicals to get rid of pests - the hedgerows would encourage predators again. The land would be 'rotated' to minimise disease, which cannot always be done with mass-farming. The creation of crop-growing farms and livestock farms as part of a whole gives the chance to have manure from the farm to use on the farm. 

Factory-farming would be a thing of the past - a bad memory - and all livestock would be farmed with the welfare of all animals in mind. Crop-growing would also be done in a different manner, with the point in mind that crops - as well as animals - are living things. We oppose the use of battery hens, of the factory-farming of pigs, cows and all livestock; all animals should live as natural a life as they can be allowed to. They should be respected in life and respected in death, since they are our source of life - just as foodstuffs are our source of life. If people wish to be vegetarians, then let them, if people wish to be meat-eaters, then again they should have their choice. Both meat and veg are living beings and this has to be taken into account; if 'Meat is Murder!' then 'Veg is Murder!' for they are both living, breathing beings but at different levels - and who is to say that plants do not have a consciousness?

The one great problem today is that a wedge has been driven between the farmer and the environmentalist, a wedge that makes each one unable to see the views of the other. This is where things are going nowhere, and more often than not the environmentalists are listened to even when they come up with some idiotic ideas that have nothing to do with Natural Law. In any case, since the EU decided decades ago the Britain should be a 'services nation' farming here has been under the threat of destruction. This suicidal policy could mean mass starvation in the future - not unlike that of the Russian Communists, the Chinese Communists, and Communists of every ilk who have come up with similar ideas of a 'utopian' world which hides the process of mass destruction. 

There are signs that some farmers are now turning their backs on the mass-produced supermarkets in favour of selling their goods locally at local farm-shops or local markets. This is a good sign that things may well change for the better. We should - as Folkish Wodenists - support as far as we can local initiative; this may mean dearer food but since the quality will be far better this need not really mean an great increase in our outlay - especially if we grow some of our own, which some are already doing. I can see no reason why English Farmers do not return to local supplying, and use their land more wisely in some areas of the country - indeed, there is every reason to do so. 

An example of this is an English Farmer who stopped supplying the supermarkets with milk and started to produce cheese and butter of his own, supplying locals directly from the farm and through local markets - and it seemed to work for him. Stopping supplies to supermarkets means the abolition of mass-farming and a return to sanity.

Animal Welfare -

This has nothing to do with 'Animal Rights' which are as unreal as 'Human Rights' and merely a means to distort the truth. Animal welfare is not a 'right' given to animals, it is the duty and responsibility of every one of us humans, given the means to see what is right and what is wrong. Factory-farming of animals, battery hens, and the totally inhumane killing of animals by Kosher and Halal methods are things that must change here in England - they were never known to our Anglo-Saxon Ancestors. 

This goes for animal experiments of any kind, and for the treatment of animals as 'fashion accessories' which to them is unnatural (this seems to be because pets are now used to replace having children, and thus treated like children - which they are not!). The breeding of animals for 'show' such as done by Cruffs, whose ill-treatment in the breeding processes was shown up by the BBC recently. This is another matter of concern, since animals were bred for their work and as companions (pets or work) to man, but today they are bred (like Cruffs) for show or bred for profit (more widespread), or they are bought as 'pets' and then discarded when they get by the 'nice' puppy stage. 

Breeding for the 'looks' of a dog has meant dogs being produced who suffer for their whole life through the breeding process. This cannot in any way be seen as right. Man has always bred dogs, originally from the wolf, for working and as companions, and in some cases the breeding has caused problems, but never in the scale of today's breeding.

It is also inhumane to breed working dogs and then discard them when their work is done - I do know of people who have had working dogs and kept them afterwards even when they cannot do their job, kept them and looked after them until the end of their lives. The working dog gives its all to us, and it deserves to be given our care and respect when its work is done. 

Hunting with Animals -

This is always a difficult subject since it is so complex a subject to tackle. I am not in favour of hunting for sports, even if I was opposed to the 'Fox-Hunting Ban'. This was not because I would encourage hunting for sport, but the ban was put in as yet another means to destroy Rural England, and really did not have the true welfare of animals as its aim. Some of those involved, no doubt, had these convictions, but it is clear that it was seen as an 'aristocratic sport' and thus a no-no in the 'Age of the People'. (Today it is certainly not an 'aristocratic sport' and most of those involved with it were the Common Folk of England.)

I do not like the idea of using animals to make money, like betting on racing and the like, but I do accept that this is an ancient thing and not a modern invention. Certainly, so long as the animals are not mistreated, they may indeed like racing around a track, and greyhounds, whippets etc. have been especially bred to race around and love doing so. The same goes for racehorses who most likely relish racing around since they have always been used by mankind for riding and working. 

Using dogs for hunting (for food) is a precarious subject nowadays, but those who promote 'animal welfare' and 'animal rights' are invariably those who suggest that all animals should be allowed to do what is natural. This being so, since these dogs have the wolf as their ancestor they are natural hunters since the wolf is a born pack-hunter. So if animals have the 'right' to live as naturally as possible then they would have to hunt! In any case hunting for food is another thing from hunting for sport. 

One of the things that 'animal welfare' and 'animal rights' do not consider is that man is also a part of Nature, and like animals we have a duty and responsibility to ensure a balanced and stable world, and this is done through killing as well as creating. The balance is held by each species acting within its own sphere, and not acting outside the Natural Law. Nature is not all sweet and light.

The argument that humans are the only ones that kill for 'sport' is a fallacy, since some animals do exactly the same - cats will often play with a prey, even torture it before killing it. And there are species that hunt and kill for sport without eating their prey. Cruelty is all around us, and not just subject to human intervention - though we are no doubt the worst.

If we lived in a Golden Age of Perfection things would be far different, but we do not live in such an age; indeed, we live in a Dark Age, the darkest age of the cycle, so we cannot act as if we do live in a Golden Age - if we did we would become like the Marxist Socialist Utopians who have caused the death of millions through their 'utopian ideas'. We have to live and act in this Dark Age, but as Men Against Time.

Self-Sufficiency -

Every Englishman should own his own piece of land here in our sacred land - England - One Man on One Acre. This cannot be done whilst profit and gain turns our homes into 'property' to be sold at will for a profit (and this is not restricted to large companies since more and more people are buying and selling for gain and getting on the 'property ladder'). 'An Englishman's home is his castle' was the saying, and every Englishman should have his own piece of land without mortgage debt. Yes, this would need safeguards, but since we are talking about a Tribal Society the land would be eked out through the tribe, given on the firm basis that the land is Odal-Land and passed on to the next generation within the Folk-Community. Where new land is needed for the next generation it would be eked out on the same basis, so that the land is owned by the Folk-Community and given to its members for their own use. The land would never be used for speculation and never leave the hands of the tribe, i.e. never sold off to outsiders or speculators.

Every man and woman of the English Folk should be able to grow food and sustain their families from the land, or to undertake some skilled workmanship that benefits the community as a whole, and thus need a place to work from. In such a society the interests of the whole would come before the interests of the individual, and a new and healthy mental attitude must arise from such a change. 

The Environment -

Without the idea of an area being a 'tourist attraction' and thus outside the interests of those living in an area there would return a sense of being part of a Folk-Community, being an integral part of a whole. The attitude that the environment is there for man to exploit (an Old Testament concept) would fade away and be replaced by the need for the local community to look after its own area because it is in their own interests to do so. It would never be in its interest to harm the environment or harm life within that environment. The need for constant change (in an Age of Chaos) would be replaced by the need to maintain the environment around the Folk-Community.

Owning one's own land, and returning to the hamlets, villages and small towns which are the heart of the Anglo-Saxon world, would mean a return to Nature and people working together with Nature, understanding Nature again - being one with Nature. 

Transport would be minimal with local food being produced locally and local goods produced locally. The need for 'tourism' would also be minimised since in times gone by only essential travel was necessary such as explorers or people travelling to gain knowledge - not 'holidays' which is again a rather strange concept since they have nothing to do with what is 'holy'. There is no reason why people cannot travel, but every reason to minimise this and stop the pollution of the planet. 

The shipment of live animals would also be a thing of the past since locally bred, grown and slaughtered animals would be produced for local people to eat. There would be minimal need for transporting food, and certainly not live animals which with today's technology can be slaughtered and moved just as easily.

With people being within smaller communities, owning their own piece of land, and working that land, there would arise a new 'Nature Consciousness' and thus everyone would take part in looking after their own area, their own 'environment'. Life would become slower since there is no more rush for profits, everyone would have time to socialise and not be like they are today. The old English 'pub' could return as a meeting-point for social activities, as well as the local shops. And the old people would be far less isolated and alone as they are today - and a consciousness of Folk-Community (Blood-Kinship) would make everyone become aware of helping the old and infirm and making lives as best they can for their own parents. In today's world it is often forgotten (through the 'generation gap' created by the Great Liar) that parents give their lives for their children (or should do so) and should expect a return when they get old.

Kosher and Halal Slaughter -

Since supermarkets today can use the meat from such inhumane slaughter it would be wise to use local outlets for meat, and also for many other foods we use. Cost is the problem, but bought in bulk from a meat-supplier this can sometimes cost less than the supermarket. One of the illusions that we all no doubt have is that all supermarkets are cheaper; indeed this is not always the case. And bear in mind that the dazzling array of goods on the shelves sometimes encourages buying a lot more than we actually need! This is done deliberately as I am going to show. 

The slaughter of animals without stunning is barbaric and totally inhumane and this has no part of an Anglo-Saxon Society. Those who deny this are liars and deceivers. You only need to watch a human slaughter when the animal is stunned by an electric current and compare this with the animal who has its throat cut without stunning - this applies not only to Halal (which is usually attacked) but to kosher killing too. This is an alien concept an we should all seek to enlighten our Folk on this.

Supermarket Sales -

Supermarket selling is designed to tell people what they want and not to sell people what they want. This cannot be denied and this concept, like advertising, was never a part of English life. Today advertising is everywhere and designed not to sell us what we need, but to tell us what we should have. This is all part of the mass-consumerism and mass-production of today's world, an idea that is totally destroying everything. 

It is perhaps not well known that supermarkets and large manufacturers used psychologists as a means to sell people their goods in mass. I became aware of this when reading a book written by a psychologist who started out by building his own business which was used by the Rowntree company some decades ago. This type of psychology was used to assess what people would buy, not what they would need to buy, but how they could be sold the product through careful packaging. It was the packaging that was important in the selling, not the product itself, which means that no concern for the consumer was ever envisaged - and this is decades ago, the process has no doubt been honed to perfection today. 

The 'Global' aspect of today's supermarket is obvious by the array of goods from around the world, all types of goods that have ultimately driven out our own English Tradition of food-consumption. This has certainly not been something for the better, since all we have today is shoddy mass-produced food that has little goodness and certainly has little health values. But the masses have been conned into thinking they are eating some kind of exotic foreign foods from all over the world - some scam! 

Many of you are not old enough to remember when the local butcher hung up his meat in the shop for all to see. This was not done for show, it was done to drain out the blood and allow the meat to mature. Today's packaged meat is dripping with its own blood which ensures that what we eat is tasteless and really worthless in terms of nourishment. The meat goes straight from the slaughter into the packet to the consumer and is not matured or drained. This is why the meat is a different colour than it is on the butcher's shelf.

We are told not to wash chickens because this increases the chances of spreading harmful bacteria which tells us that battery-hens are actually filled with bacteria! And they know this! No properly bred chicken would be diseased but we are sold diseased goods through mass-production. Many of the goods containing meat but not being the whole meat-product and merely cast-off from the production of meat, the bits they cannot sell us so they make them into 'burgers' or other meat-contained goods. 

All in all we can safely say that supermarket goods and very often of inferior quality and although cheaper do not give the same nourishment as the goods bought directly from the farmer. This is no doubt not the case in every supermarket, nor the case for every farmer, for even in small outlets there are the odd rogue there to gain for himself. 

The great problem today is that many people are so used to eating the mass-produced food of the supermarket that they have actually forgotten (or never known) what real food tastes like. This is certainly true of battery hens which can be bought very cheaply but which are inferior in health-giving properties to a true free-range chicken. Chickens used to be full of Omega 3 but today they are full of fat. 

It is also a fact that food cut from the garden and eaten within a few hours is full of goodness, and loses its goodness the longer it is left to eat. Imagine what the vegetables are like when they have to be cut and then transported over the country, or even from foreign lands. An end to the 'Global Order' will bring us back to sanity and local growing and rearing. 


The New Order -

What I have said here can come about through a National Government coming to power, so long as that National Government is fully aware of the socialistic aspect of the New Order. At this time it is unlikely that such a government would come to power. The more likely scenario would be a total collapse of society coupled with catastrophic change which would break everything down into chaos, disorder and widespread destruction, from out of which would naturally arise a new form of Tribalism out of which again the Folk-Nation would arise organically. 

It is very likely that if changes started to happen oppressive laws would be brought in to halt these changes. This may also happen if too many farmers started to move away from the supermarkets into local production for local sales. We can see today how, when the Alternative Medicine scene started to grow there are more and more voices arising in opposition, not only ridicule (one method to stop people listening) but also in time no doubt through laws to protect the 'Drug-Industry'. And this is all in face of a National Health Service that is deteriorating rapidly. (*) Of course, this would be very hard to do with individual use of alternative medicine - Folk-Medicine. The System will have to tolerate some small alternatives, but when their whole consumer system is threatened there is no doubt they will act against any opposition. 

(*) There is an alternative 'Health Food Industry' but when closely considered this is no more than another arm of the Global Order, and in some cases sells alternative goods which are supplied from abroad in place of natural products that can be made here in England. 

These are things that need to be considered and it would be wise to consider them rather than dismiss them. At this present time, as individuals, there is much that we can do to change ourselves rather than wasting time on building 'pressure-groups' that are merely a stop-valve. When we have changed ourselves it will be time to preach to others! We need to lead by our own example in all aspects of life.
