Exploring the Social Imagination

Follow up to 3 in One Post in 3 Parts ~ Results of Modern Deconstruction... A Return to Paganism

We have lived for some time in a post pagan society and for crescive dark reasons, the previous enlightened social imagination seems to be lured back to it. What are the signs? For one, the demand for fluid gender/sexual orientation. The attraction to the green agenda as in 'tree hugger' (symbolized in the Maypole ritual) and many other seemingly well intended nature first causes and including moon worship. Moon stages  were considered to be gateways to accessing the dark side that would open up for the right incantation.

Sacred groves of trees or a very large tree in Celtic culture were/was an important symbol and this is true for many cultures (one might even include the Tree of Knowledge in Christianity). Hence, in Germanic pagan practices we find the practice of the May Pole in Spring. The maypole was a fixed tall wooden pole erected as a part of various European folk festivals, around which a maypole dance would takes place.

Yet, the return to paganism stems from the misunderstanding of and lack of role expectations in our current social condition. Some may call our times transitory but what are we transitioning to? Are we transgressing by this idea to be fluid in our gender/sexual identity? Yes, in many pre-modern cultures, women could be 'stay at home moms' as well as warriors but even in most pagan societies, women warriors were few. There was a common acceptance of homosexuality in pagan societies and practice of it. Let us remind ourselves, that such people, men especially, were quite brutal engaged often in conflict, conquest, rape and pillaging.

One can argue there is no correlation there between such sexual orientation and brutish practices with a disregard for other people including their women and children but certainly worthy of observation that such as the case.  Who brought social enlightenment to these uncivilized groups? Priests that came in the name of Jesus Christ.

We are faced with a return to paganism. There is the agenda to lump together all faiths. There is the agenda to make heroes of homosexuals, there is the agenda to worship nature rather than its Creator. All for what?
That is a good and fair question. Without clear distinction of sexes/gender role expectation disappears. When a society no longer knows what to expect from an individual member of society (and such expectations begin at the moment of birth - Its a boy! or Its a girl!) then society risks chaos and destruction.

Why deconstruct if that is the end all? Yes, why? It is easy thus for the ruling depraved elites to retain their positions of power. How? The begin by making others think that they have been wronged, that they need to be liberated from social roles and expectations. When that happens the ruling elite steps in with their agenda.
They take what was sound advice and good practice (making babies in a heterosexual family) and make it into a joke, a thing of ridicule to be tossed out. They subtly create (via deconstruction of the past and its pure heroes) islands of individuals who begin to and or come to think they have a right to be islands of non nondescript form so that no one can hurt them anymore; and only the state can protect them. How truly harmful to mankind is that? Incredibly harmful!

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" ~ Ephesians 6:12.

Though... "everything is permissible, not everything is beneficial" ~ 1 COR 10:23. Truly, "there is nothing new under the sun" ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9.
