Description

This chapter provides a more conceptual overview of Heathenry, using the descriptive metaphor of a watershed to examine the dynamics of the movement and make sense of its diversities. Some observers have discovered an overriding consistency in Heathenry: consistently racist, consistently conservative, or consistently presenting an aggressive masculinity. In my own journey through Heathenry, I discovered an important degree of diversity amidst those trends. This chapter the interplay among the movement’s complex and multifaceted influences.
