When is Paganism not Paganism?

"What the system, what Capitalism tries to hide from the seeker, is that Paganism is free. You do not have to spend a penny. However capitalism serves the lazy pagan. Why go out and connect with the earth when you can buy this or that to make you feel more pagany? It makes the person with the most money, able to buy the biggest pentacle ring or necklace or crystal seem holier than thou, more genuine and authentic. It is everywhere in pagan culture. Look how much fellow seekers charge for their works. The poor are often priced out."

Watch "Inmates Enroll in Crochet Program" on YouTube

https://youtu.be/_bo-vgCoe-U


"This story is 5 years old or older [has been on YouTube that long]. 

Hey, Department of Corrections, we can do this everywhere.  Charity programs all over the world need free hats, scarves, socks, gloves, blankets, and literally anything that can be knitted or crocheted for cold weather protection items. 

I challenge you to do this for charity and set up more traditional work programs to help with rehabilitation and reintegration. 

Use you noggins and stay away from corporate governance. You are caretakers of a portion of our society that are still human, need love and respect and direction. 

We can all do better. 

Mahalo.

(Dear readers, if you are cold and could use a scarf or hat, or other clothing, please contact me at info@homelesshookers.org.)"

The Greening of Paganism

Peg Aloi, who studies Paganism in the media, seriously questions whether we Pagans have lived up to that challenge:
"There are now hundreds of thousands of people who identify as 'pagan' or 'Wiccan' or 'Druid' … who have never conducted a ritual out of doors, who have never attended a festival at a campground, who have never planted a garden in honor of the Eternal Return of the Earth Mother in spring. Do [we] discuss the gods and [our] ritual practices and spells and theology? Sure! But do [we] get their hands dirty, in actual dirt?"
