I honestly feel Europe was more politically cohesive with every single nation having shared Germanic monarchs, prior to the onset of both world wars.
As for this day in itself the prerequisites are rather simple, you don’t need to be married, nor have children within the moment you just need to have a significant other in your life & be in love. Hence, prevalent bitterness regarding this specific day perpetuated by malcontent individuals more often than not by those within the dissident-right “online confluence” many of whom claim certain values yet express the diametric opposite in their daily jargon. I judge that this simply inferiority complex projection & nothing more.
A man who is in a loving relationship with a woman would never in a million years utter “this holiday is intended to make single men feel alone“, I often hear this & consider it ironic for those who are supposed to value traditional relationships, otherwise healthy mindsets as a collective movement more often than not are the ones spreading vitriol regarding an otherwise sacred principle.
Fear not… my intention is not to Black-pill rather as I much emphasize the contrary illumination as to the importance of compatible relationships, love bound within shared community as well the dualism of man & woman.
- Valentinstag, Válisblot, Lupercalia (The importance of this day despite the usual malcontents).
- Harte-Kunst, Die Schöne und das Tier (A comparison between extreme dichotomies).
- 2020-2021 Rückblickend (Looking back upon last year & present).
- Für die Zukunft (New creative horizons, protecting future content).
Content as outlined under “sections” will be fulfilled in the coming weeks, I am to spend this day with beloved then proceed with production for the second video in tandem with my dearest collaborating her talents with mine, then finalizing with completion of this post, Tschüss!
