So what am I suggesting here – that the ‘Ash dieback’ was somehow inflicted by our enemies as an attack on one of our central archetypes: the Ash tree? That this attack was set in motion through ‘magical’ workings perhaps?
Not necessarily, although my readers will know by now that I rarely rule anything out. Something else to consider is that, as the BBC article reports, ‘Shadow environment secretary Mary Creagh accused the government of ‘dithering’ over the summer”, asking "Why did ministers sit back, cross their fingers and wait until the disease was found in the wild in June?"’. So even if the Globalists themselves didn’t release this disease, they may well have turned a blind eye to it. Again, this will sound tin-foil crazy to most readers – that our enemies would go to such lengths, or indeed that Western governments are even our sworn enemy – but this is how my mind works, and these are the possibilities we must consider in order to repel all possible attacks.
The mere reporting of this story, which needn’t even be factual, is enough to have effect. As stated at the beginning of this article, we are looking at the world of symbolism here. A symbolic destruction of our Ash trees is almost as detrimental as an actual destruction. The Ash tree represents a deep archetype with Germanic peoples (and, I’m willing to bet, other pagan traditions) and it is this archetype which appears to have come under fire.

I think most of your readers have by now worked out you're off your trolley.

No, it sounds tin-foil crazy to probably everybody.

Why don't you idiots get your panties in a bunch about the pointless slaughter of wolves? Every "tough guy" has a wolf image on his SUV or t-shirt, but none of them seem to be able to call their state reps. When all the wolves are gone, there will still be plenty of livestock death, because this country is overrun with packs of feral dogs.

This is a boring piece not worthy of comment.

There are doctors for that sort of thing; they're called psychiatrists. Maybe you should see one.

Nah. It's a conspiracy against guitar fans because Gibson wanted to shut down Fender's custom shop one tree at a time. Flame maple is next.
