Chapter Summary

The late 1990s saw the rise of racist paganism to become one of the most dynamic religious expressions of the white power culture. This fact should not mislead the reader to assume that racism is inherent in paganism or that all pagans are racists. Pagans of today, however, live in social realities long governed by these classificatory categories as organizing principles and hence impossible to avoid. The surge of racist paganism is related to a process of radicalization of the white power culture. With important predecessors among the racist mystics and philosophers in the pan-Germanic völkisch milieu vibrant in continental Europe at the turn of the former century, racist paganism has since come in two waves; one in the late sixties and early seventies, and one in the late eighties and nineties.
