Polytheistic Hellenic Declaration
Stilian Ariston, 20. Gamelion 2791 / 10. February 2015
We make very clear to everyone: HELLENISMOS has no interest in political parties of the romaic (modern «Greek») or any other nation state nor in any ideology of the christian era such as nationalism, internationalism etc. Hellenismos also does not care about the dietary habits, sexual orientations or personal likes of its members. Modern romaic state, its politics and boundaries do not concern Hellenic Tradition, as long as this state or its parties or any other group do not interfere with our tradition or exploit our history. We are able and ready to defend our cultural tradition and to expose all those who want to pass off alien ideologies as Hellenic. Hellenism is democratic, autonomous and self-determined. But we are also stout and brave, courageous and honest enough to protect our heritage and ourselves against any ambush or activity under false flag.
The romaic fascist party «Golden Dawn» could become prohibited in Greece. For such a case, they established now a new fascist party called «Ethnic Dawn». Its members misuse again the Hellenic symbol of eros, the maiandros, and enact themselves as a «Hellenic» party. As nationalists they have no right to even use the word «ethnic», for nationalism homogenized the remnants which monotheism had left over from ethnicities. Nationalism identified ethnic identity with citizenship and the ethnos itself with the nation state and in our case Hellas with Byzantium! They also have no right to use the word «Hellenic» or play the Hellenes for Romiosyni, their culture, literally smashed Hellenism to pieces. Orthodox christians persecuted the Hellenes until the 15th century CE. So our message to them is: We are here and willing to protect Hellenism against every totalitarism. That´s for sure!
Golden Dawn has very much to do with christianity and nothing to do with Hellenism, which is not a mere religion, though it contains the worship of the Gods and Daimones, but the ethos of the Hellenic ethnos. Golden Dawn defends the romaic state, its historiography and self-image. Golden dawners can not defend Hellenismos, but only their own ideological constructs. They don’t even know what Hellenismos is and confuse it with their own culture. Nationalism belongs to the christian era, it is a modern political movement with no indigenous or ethnic past. We the Hellenes do not think in the categories of a hellenized world, Hellenic «blood» (Thales, Aesopos, Porphyrius did not have had Hellenic parents) or nazism in Hellenic cloak. The «intellectual principle» of Hellenism is humanism (Werner Jaeger: Paideia: The ideals of Greek culture, Vol. I: Archaic Greece, the mind of Athens, p. XXIII, Oxford 1946). Humanism contrasts Golden Dawn’s slogan: «Blood, honour, Golden Dawn!». Fascism, antisemitism, rascism is not Hellenism. We will fight against the exploiters of our indigenous culture and against those who enganger the autonomy of our ethnos. As long as they exploit Hellenism, we will expose their true nature.
Golden Dawn came out of the closet on «hellenic-orthodox principles and Ideals» [sic]. The party declared that its goal is the «rehabilitation of the validity of the church» (Diipetes, July «1997», Νο. 20). Golden Dawn never said a thing about Hellenic ethnocide, never defended Hellenism against monotheism or christianity. Golden Dawn dares even to identify Byzantium with Hellas and the Hellenic ethnos with modern «Greek» nation state. Nationalist Ilias Kasidiaris made it very clear that Golden Dawn is a christian party (of course it is, nationalism is anti-ethnic by its very nature). He also stated that «the Hagion Oros means Hellas to us» and that Golden Dawn is against the separation of Church and State. He, as many other Golden Dawners, believes in the «christian-hellenic Culture», which Romiosyni founded 200 years ago, and even purposes to offer subventions to Athos. He also intends to built a statue of Christodoulos (Agioritiko Vima, 28.4.2014). In his eyes, ethnic Hellenes can not be «taken serious». Nationalists attacked Hellenism over and over again (Pansyrinx, August 2012) and draged our tradition through the mire. We know enough about romaic nazism to recognise its danger to Hellenic culture.
Hellenic tradition only concerns the Hellenes, not the greekspeaking orthodox christians / Romioi, the superhellenes and nationalist DNAgers. There is no honour in Golden Dawn. It’s fraudulent like every other fascist party. Its existence depends on the modern artificially created dipole nationalism – internationalism. This party of monotheistic culture does not concern us, just as every other «product» of the christian era does not concern us.
