What Does Folkish Mean

What Does Folkish Mean Cover In the recent past, several discussions have arisen about the term Folkish. In its simplest terms, Folkish means one thing: an unbending will and dedication to one's Folk. An unbending will and dedication means that the Folk come first, above all else. Our forbears lived a challenging life in the wilds of Northern Europe and Scandinavia. They relied on their own skills as individuals to establish the family. Families worked closely together to establish the clan. Clans worked closely together to establish the tribe. Tribes worked closely together to establish a Nation. That Nation, the Aryan people of Scandinavia and Northern Europe, is our Folk.

In today's world, we are faced with a society that has been bred to soil themselves like newborn children. We have sex offenders on every corner, informants on every doorstep, and government eyes everywhere, all looking for an opportunity. None of these things align with being Folkish. A sex offender hurts women and children, leaving emotional and psychological scars for life. Such actions are not geared toward lifting the Folk. An informant downgrades his/her life by putting friends and family in jail or prison. Such actions do not lead the Folk forward, but strive to bring the Folk down by incapacitating good people while the informant goes free. Such actions are not Folkish.thus, sex offenders and informants are not Folkish. That is why these types of people cannot become a link in the chain.they are weak and unreliable. They are not worthy of holding the Nine Noble Virtues within or standing up to fight for our beliefs and culture.

In more complex terms, one must break the word down into its root word and suffix. The root word is Folk. Folk is capitalized because it is a proper noun and has significant meaning to an individual Odinist. The Dictionary defines the word as:

* adjective 1 characteristic of ordinary people or traditional culture. 2 resembling folk music. folk /fok/

* plural noun 1 (also folks) informal people in general. 2 (one's folks) one's family, especially one's parents. 3 (also folk music) traditional music of unknown authorship, transmitted orally. 4 before another noun originating from the beliefs, culture, and customs of ordinary people: folk wisdom. - ORIGIN Old English -ish

* suffix forming adjectives: 1 (from nouns) having the qualities or Characteristics of: girlish. 2 of the nationality of: Swedish. 3 (from adjectives) somewhat: yellowish. 4 informal denoting an approximate age or time of day: sixish. ORIGIN Old English

In looking at the roots of the word Folkish, the truth becomes apparent. The word Folk- is simply one's people. Everyone who walks this earth has Folk. The significant difference in the common usage of "folk" and Our Folk is how we view each other and treat each other. We stand proud and true in the name of Our Folk, regardless of the cost. We are Our own Family! We are Our own Culture! We have Our own Beliefs! We have Our own Customs! All of these things are what make us Our Folk. What we are not is dependant on others. We have Values, Wisdom, and Knowledge.all instilled from countless generations of love and compassion, battles and bloodshed! These are things one cannot buy with money or manipulate through government. They are Folkish!
