The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause.

Eric Hoffer's The True Believer or Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements 

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice,—is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.

John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 - 8 May 1873) English political philosopher and economist, an advocate of utilitarianism; often known simply as JS Mill.

At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human
stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of
malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on
behalf of religious or political idols

 Aldous Huxley (July 26, 1894 – November 22, 1963) considered a 'leader of modern thought' and an intellectual of the highest rank

Hail Rig,

It is a great site you have built to help others find relevant material on the Northern Tradition. The book hoard has been especially valuable to me.

I saw the link you posted on the e-group and wanted to say, Thank you. I enjoyed the "Freyja Runes Seidr"article.  In my opinion it confirms a lot of the beliefs I have about the Norse and the Runes. I hope that you post more articles on your site.

Hail Rig,

I followed your the link to your website through the runes-divination Yahoo group, and was very happy with what I found, a beautifully laid out creation with interesting articles on the Northern Tradition. I reassure you that topics such as women's mysteries and the importance of the Asyniur are well represented here in Southern England at my local group Thorshof! Still, your refreshing and realistic outlook on the religion is very welcome.
