Mark Citadel spuevvs utter thwarp:
▬» Why was it that in his quest for a spiritual warrior elite, Heinrich Himmler modeled his SS on the Teutonic Knights? Precisely because no such thing existed in Germany’s pagan past. It was a Roman import taken up with stunning efficiency by the martial Prussian character, but was not itself German in its metaphysical origins. Because Northern Europe was late in emerging from barbarism, it lacked a sophisticated understanding of the superior and inferior. »
Firstly, “no such thing” is inaccurate. An order of knights is a mannerbund, a thing in North & Central Europe’s “Pagan” (Heathen) Past. Secondly, the SS was modeled on Pagan cultures as well. Third, the Germanic Varangian Guard predates the Teutonic Knights!
The Rus’ provided the earliest members of the Varangian Guard. They were in Byzantine service from as early as 874. The Guard was first formally constituted under Emperor Basil II in 988, following the Christianization of Kievan Rus’ by Vladimir I of Kiev. Vladimir, who had recently usurped power in Kiev with an army of Varangian warriors, sent 6,000 men to Basil as part of a military assistance agreement. Basil’s distrust of the native Byzantine guardsmen, whose loyalties often shifted, with fatal consequences, as well as the proven loyalty of the Varangians, many of whom had previously served in Byzantium, led the Emperor to employ them as his personal guardsmen.
Immigrants from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland kept a predominantly Norse cast to the organization until the late 11th century.
The Germanist Otto Höfler, who was close to national socialism , in his investigation of the myths of the Wild Hunt, assumed that the Germanic tribes, too, were acquainted with men, to whom he attributed a state-forming power. They are said to have emerged mainly in the fight against witches .  Höfler’s theory is controversial in specialist circles. The Varangians were composed of men’s societies, which in Rustraded or looted.
Even Nazi groups like the SS referenced to ancient Indo-European or Aryan male bonding (e.g. the Vratyas in ancient India)  back to this idea. One of the most famous philosophers of the Nazi era , Alfred Baeumler , wrote in 1934 the Mannbund und Wissenschaft .
That Germania lacked a “sophisticated” understanding of the superior and inferior is doubtful. Their whole culture attests to hierarchy, as it was a sacred culture, as someone who has read Evola through non-ideological (“Christian”) lenses will observe. Mark has read Evola, but only through a Christianism. The Goths e.g. were admirers of the Roman Empire. How is that not understanding the superior and inferior? How come Germanics increasingly joined the Empire and eventually took it over, if they lacked an understanding of the Superior?
The Germanic & Nordic völuspá lists 3 castes, the first one which is spiritual and blonde. Second red-headed and warrior. Third dark-haired and art-laborious.
The Germanic world-tree Yggdrasil is especially informative about hierarchy, with its levels, the most famous difference being betwixt the fair gods and the dark gods, the same being reflected in Greek myth between titans and Olympians, for instance.
