Georges Dumezil went deeply into the idea of the threefold nature of Indo-European Society, and I would here like to look at his ideas in the hope that perhaps shed light on how we can build a movement based upon the Divine Order of the Gods, and how this is relevant to the Eternal Struggle against the Forces of Darkness and Chaos. The following is a sketch of his ideas -
First Function - Sovereignty.
This is made up of the rulers, the priests, and the legal specialists. This level is broken into -
The Magical - the Magician-Creator rules by his creative violence.
The Judicial - The God of Justice rules by his organising wisdom.
Second Function - The Warrior-Hero.
This function is that of the Warrior-Caste whose role it is to have the strength to put the decisions of the ruling caste into action.
Third Function - The Generative.
These are the healers, the youth, of luxury and prosperity, of peace and plenty, of virility and fertility.
- The Farmer-Provider.
- The Craftsman.
- Fertility, abundance & peace.
