Mens sana in corpore sano: this ancient saying has never felt more true as it does in our age of decay and degeneration. We have severed the bonds of blood and abandonded the rural soil. Thus, we have become ill and tainted, sick in body and mind.
I believe that a return to the land, to our native soil that tasted the blood, tears and sweat of many generations of our ancestors, is imperative, if we want to restore a healthy lifestyle to our folk. We do not require any of the fancy luxuries that keep us attached to the cancerous urban moloch absorbing millions of lives each and every day.
Out there in the countryside, in the dense forests and on the vast plains, we find not only peace and solace of mind, but we can regain the vigorous health and strength that made our forebears resilient against numberless hardships and challenges.
So, if you wish, follow me to the hyperborean garden (http://artamanen.tumblr.com) where the Artaman, the Archetype of the Nordic “Wehrbauer” (militant peasant), cultivates his native soil as well as his ancestral blood.
