Asatru As A Social Movement

Asatru As A Social Movement Cover To some degree, Asatru represents dissatisfaction with the meaningless and lack of spirituality offered us by mainstream society. In this way, Asatru can be seen as a social movement seeking increased ethnic identity, spirituality, and meaning in our lives. Whereas greater society seeks to impose a universalism where our own cultural and religious identities are seen as meaningless, adherents of Asatru reject those views by embracing the religion of their ancestors and making it a meaningful presence in their lives today.

There’s no doubt that Asatru saw a resurgence as a romantic movement through the 1960’s and 1970’s, but contemporary Asatru, although embracing many aspects of romanticism, has sought to be a practical, spiritual and visionary statement about where our lives should be and where they should go. We are seeing ourselves become better organized and mobilized as a religious movement.
