Reposted @pacific.north.blessed The following text is very well written by Taylor and I got his permission to share it. Many thanks to you! || In the Lay of Rig, the god Heimdal establishes the caste system of the ancient Germanic Tribes. Each of them is significant and unique in and of itself and form a necessary part of the greater whole. There are many Thralls, the sturdy working class. There are less Karls, the craftsmen and warriors. Then there are few Jarls, the leaders and shaman.
Contrary to the common belief concerning caste systems, this was not a hierarchy of privilege and superiority. It is the answer to the question of capability. With greater capability came greater responsibility and station was established by worth, not birth. All glory must be earned. A farmer that fulfilled his duty based on his capability was more honorable than a false king that failed in his duty. Every duty was necessary for the greater good of the folk and was respected appropriately based on service to that duty.
Duty is the essence of manhood, honor is the essence of duty and our honor is loyalty. Loyalty to the greater good of our people that, while elevating all of us, elevates each of us in turn. This is how we truly progress as a Folk, not through senseless competition out of some ignorant notion of equality to serve the illusion of conspicuous consumeristic luxury. Equality is a false god. It is far better to serve and serve well in a duty we can excel at than to aspire to something blatantly beyond our capability and fail, damning ourselves and our Folk. Think differently. Break the chains of the false idol of equality and find true meaning and purpose in the things and the people you love. Odin is the Al-fađr because he did all that was necessary for his Folk.
