This book starts out by making it very clear that American Odinism is not Asatru. It’s a completely different branch of heathenry with its own separate traditions and belief systems. Then this book goes on to tell what the author thinks about various modern political issues from his perspective as an American Odinist and also from his personal experiences growing up in an oil-lease village. He is against both democracy and capitalism, and advocates a family-centered theocracy instead. While I disagree with the author on many points, and found some of the language rather startling to find in a work of nonfiction, we’re in agreement that both Communism and National Socialism are evil forms of Statism. Applying the classical Greek idea of the Age of Man to modern American social issues made me think.
