    literally the opposite. irish and welsh writers were protecting christianity, writing books and defending the last vestiges of rome while anglo pagans were being barbarians

    Maybe after sending generations of princes to study in the monastic schools of Ireland, you can make that claim, but I wil also remark the term British Isles didn't exist at the time, nor is it even an appropriate name today, unless of course you are literally referring to Britain and its surrounding islets.

      The term British Isles at least in the form 'Pretanic Isles' existed since ancient Greek times, but there was a lull of over a millenium before it was revived by English authors in the early modern period.

      • 7 months ago
        Anonymous

        'Revived' feck off, it was coined by the same fella who made up the terminology 'British empire'. It didn't exist in the lexicon before that and was made up for purely political reasons, right in time for English colonialism and advancement of cartography. The Irish government thoroughly rejects the term for legitimate historical reasons. It is a colonial term, get over it and learn to deal with your past.

            Yeah cus most of the world speaks or understands the algosphere. Its not that hard to understand the 'why' part of it.

            Brits wrote the maps, brits wrote the history books, brits controlled the narrative. The narrative was the empire is great, and sure a wee smattering of anti Irish sentiment.

          I'm Irish and probably the most prolific Irish poster on the board (the one who posts the bookscans and greentexts). I don't like the term, and don't use it myself, but truth is truth and there are defensible (if not necessarily good) grounds for using it.

            Well one can argue against the bad, the bad people were the cartographers writers and accountants in the language they administrated their colonies in. It is now the language of the world. And, language does matter.

      True, it should be called English Islands since modern irish cucked themselves into being english-speaking globohomo anglos despite the deaths of their ancestors fighting for independence.

        >since modern irish cucked themselves into being english-speaking globohomo anglos

        The Irish language continued to decline after independence because Irish-speaking regions were the poorest and hardest hit by the emigration which had been consistently depleting Ireland's population since the Famine. The embrace of globohomo came well over seventy years after independence, and was heavily pushed along by British elements in Ireland's media, political and education systems.

        >despite the deaths of their ancestors fighting for independence

        Many of those martyric ancestors of recent centuries had themselves alas been monolingual English speakers, which doesn't make their deaths on behalf of their country any less meaningful.

        I've read hundreds of accounts from travellers and other commentators on the Irish Question in the 19th century and none of them regardless of their views on the matter regarded Irish nationality as hinging on language. Most travelled mostly among English speakers and had zero doubt that the Irish were a radically distinct people to the English. If you are an American, petition the Queen to take control of you again or you're a hypocrite.

          I'm not from any english speaking country. I refuse to accept the relinquishment of your own language in favour of the language of you conquerot as something that can be defended. The irish may not see their language as part of their identity, for whatever cope reasons, but english is part of English identity.

            Tell me which country precisely you are from.

            I never defended the abandonment of Irish. I speak it myself, though regrettably with some interference in English in syntax and phraseology which I'm trying to overcome. If I were solely among Irish people I would address them in similar terms as you have done to me, because I am in fact a Gaelic revivalist.

            English it must be admitted does have some part in Irish culture, even if it ought to be a subordinate part, because it has been spoken here uninterruptedly since the 12th or 13th century on parts of the east coast, and many of the greatest names of modern literature in English come from Ireland or were Irish.

            I've never seen pre-20th century foreign commentators, whether they approved of Irish independence or not, sperg out about the language question like this. The recent hostility to us on this website on this account I'm fairly certain is from Euros who are Anglicising themselves from consuming English-media all day by choice and are lashing out at us as a cope when we at least have the very genuine excuse of centuries of intense and concerted repression of the language. When you're killing your own language via Tik Tok creolisation it's consoling I guess to lash out at us, who lost our language mostly because we lost our population in the 19th century. It still hasn't recovered from its peak in the 1841 census, and that was probably an undercount.

    Reconnect with your gods, Anglo.

    • 7 months ago
      Anonymous

      I don’t think the average layman would be able to reconnect. It’s a lifestyle and belief system completely at odds with us in our current state. I think very few people would be able to live as our forebears did. For example, I think of the general squeamishness people exhibited about the Northman: a tale of honour and revenge when most people would prefer to call the local constables and have the law deal with it (your father and friends being murdered). The general sentiment I’ve seen from peoples’ reactions to it are “aren’t we glad we left that behind us?”.

        IMO it requires a totally different mindset away from modern living and Christianity. A lot of people live in an urbanite bubble, totally removed from how the world works and think their ancestors were backwards savages with little to no knowledge, even though they had more than enough knowledge and skills for at least 3 modern day people put together.

        I went the route of being protestant, than athiest, than agnostic than to a literal gnostic/platonist and now I am somewhere in between that and ancestor worship. The divine is the divine, and most religions share the same divine truths. It doesn't matter how you get to god, what matters is that you started your journey at all.
        That world view partially came about due to me heavily studying religion and history and recreating it as best I could in a modern lifestyle.
        I make my own soap, I harvest my own plants, I make bread every week, I make my own compost, I hunt for my own meat and make my own cheese. Living that kind of life close to nature is the best way to get close to your ancestors and god.

      Yes but you should also be aware that you are of Celtic descent too. This means the lost celtic gods & the fair folk who inhabit the island are a part of your heritage.

      Stop stirring shit cunt. Anglo's and welshmen are brothers now thanks to king Arthur and we won't let israelite divide us.

      You have a point, especially with baptism being wide spread.We will never be able to get in touch with the spirits of this island they way our forebearers did but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to pay them respect and build a relationship with my heritage.
