What do you guys think of neopaganism and its compatibility with the green pill? I'm into the mythology and the folkish aspect of it (well, of the non-faggy versions of it), but a lot of what I've seen seems a bit too grug brained in the sense that exoterically minded religious systems usually are. There seems to be a pretty pervasive mindset of "my ancestors believed it, I believe it, and that settles it!", reminiscent of the way Christian fundamentalists speak about the Bible. While I've seen some of them promoting practices like meditation that have been traditionally neglected in Abrahamic religions for the most part, a lot of them seem to suffer from the same forms of flawed thinking in that they'll write off people's paranormal experiences that don't line up with their own belief system. For example, I've heard them claim that following your ancestral gods is the best way to protect yourself from negative entities and that people only reincarnate within their own race. I've also heard one guy who seemed to think that manifestation wasn't real. I've also come across whining about LaVeyan Satanism, Gnosticism, and criticism of the famous Thelemic "do what thou wilt" dictum without actually understanding what it's supposed to mean. I'm not necessarily endorsing those movements or anything, but those particular neopagans come across like they just want to write off anything associated with them instead of gleaning whatever insight they can from them. I think it's only natural to want to follow the native traditions of your people and to prefer to live and fraternize with people of your own race, but to me they miss the whole point by elevating ancestral religious practices and sensible principles of social and religious organization as ends in themselves rather than as methods of connecting with the divine.
I think they could use a strong dose of New Thought. Hell, James J. O'Meara from Counter Currents has referenced Neville Goddard's ideas extensively, so it's not like there's not any kind of precedent for people on the right to take inspiration from that world. Unfortunately, there's a tendency among the more reconstructionism-oriented neopagans to dump on anything reminiscent of New Age airheads. I can't say I don't understand it to some degree, since for the longest time pagan revivalists got lumped together with Wiccans and universalist hippies who tend to be downright antagonistic toward their very existence (all while often maintaining obsequious attitudes toward exclusivistic practitioners of non-Western religious traditions). I still think they're throwing the baby out with the bathwater and holding themselves back.
