Members of the Hellenic diaspora have taken up the fight against those who try to change our culture from the outside into something it is not, to «correct us» into them. They have started to defend their ways against occultists, pagans and New Agers who attempt through videos, articles and books to define our culture, change our religion, even our language, often disguised as «Hellenists» who cannot speak Greek at that. In spite of all cultural anthropological realities and historically grown conditions, they continue, unswervingly and consistently, their distortion of Hellenismos, its language, history and values. More and more ethnic Hellenes are not willing to put up with this any more. So they began speaking up against cultural colonialism, speaking out and speaking for themselves. Consequently, a new trend is emerging in occultism and neopaganism: anti-Hellenism. Some of these spiritual colonialists like to style themselves as heroic defenders of freedom of religion and take the field against the «notorious» Hellenes. Yet they remain blind to their own intolerance and misconducts.
They break into other ethnicities‘ «houses,» change foreign languages according to their whim and needs, cut them precisely to their own size and turn other people’s ancestral value system upside down.
The various derivations of western Christianity (occultism, neopaganism, the New Age movement) have joined forces in their attempt to expropriate the Hellenic people and distort our culture into an image of themselves. Their intolerance and hybris has reached shocking proportions.
As you can see in the video uploaded by anti-Hellene «Aliakai» or on the homepage of the so-called «Xenia Declaration,» the anti-Hellenic pagan groups who support the alienation of Greek and Greek values such as «Xenia» are many. And as good neopagans, they are playing on false denominations and bogus labels by presenting themselves to the public as «Hellenists.»
It seems that anti-Hellenism unifies all kinds of racists, colonialists and ethnocentrists.
And why not?
They share the same attitude, mindset, goal, origin and the bad habit of importing their individual ideologies into foreign cultures. Cultures they do not know nor understand. Cultures that they, as a matter of fact, despise.
It is time for the UN, the UNESCO, the Greek state and the European Congress of Ethnic Religions to take-up the fight against cultural appropriation.
It always leads to expropriation and genocide.
This crime against vulnerable cultures must end.
I urge all my brothers and sisters to come out and raise their voices against anti-Hellenism. Fight colonialism. Defend your heritage.
