When Trees don’t fear Death

Many European Traditionalists love to read books. We read to try to know and understand our past, our ancestors, our traditions, our history and in one sentence: who we are mentally, physically and spiritually. Not least, also to escape from this modern world that is so unnatural and just not made for us: it is made for the totally domesticated man.
