Mjölnir

For the last several months I've been wearing a small replica of Mjölnir, or Thor's Hammer (at left). It symbolises, I suppose, a final transformation, a gesture of resistance, or, perhaps more accurately, a restoration of bio-cultural identity. But I tend not to think too deeply about it; I'll leave the analysis to the intellectuals. Wearing it at the beach or pool occasionally I get curious looks from people; I've noticed these same individuals often wear a cross or surf pendant, or sport curious facial hair or tattoos. All rather conventional statements. How do you turn your revolt into style?

I don't go in much for jewelry. I grow out my facial hair when possible to a full moustache and beard. White men must learn to become more barbaric, like the Vikings were. We need to be feared.

I once sponsored a small sports team with an appropriately Germanic/Wagernian logo on their shirts. I still wear mine for exercise, etc. I've gotten alot of compliments since it looks pretty cool.

My statement is my hairstyle. But, the most important symbol I carry is a Para-Ordnance .45 and 3 spare mags.

My best statement? Freeballing.

I wear a Lauburu, also known as the "Basque Cross".

As one can imagine, due to its shape, I receive quite a number of curious looks.

As you have stated I think symbols of rebellion are everywhere and I find the most efficient way to differentiate myself is by their conspicuous absence in my own style. The issue with symbols is that you always have to share them.

I keep a rabbit's foot in my purse for good luck. I'm sure PETA wouldn't be to happy about it.

I like the Celtic symbols and their mystical powers. A Celtic knot pendant or a ring signifies the Holy Trinity and also makes a nice accessory. Even I have a couple of Celtic jewelry pieces, I can get more to extend my collection.
