I wrote the following as a status on facebook so my style may differ from the usual, but I felt it worth posting here.

My concept of class is most likely a bizarre one given the time we live in. But it is understandable given the history of class relating to Northern European peoples.
The class system used to serve a very different and healthier society than we have now. In the times before good records were kept, long before the Romans built their diseased and bloated factory farm of a civilisation.
Before the idea of human equality and life ever after had left the middle east, we had a tribal society.
That tribal society was made up of three classes, three classes that survived in theory until the middle ages despite them being naively out of date at the time and one of the classes serving the opposite purpose to their original one.
There was a warrior class, who, like the knights of the middle ages were the nobility, the leaders of men. Before there were even kings and queens, it was the warrior class, considered of the noblest blood who were tasked with the highest responsibilities in relation to their kinsmen.
There were the priest class, if you imagine the Druids of the Celtic nations, you wont be far wrong in imagining their ancient Germanic and Slavic brethren either. Learned and wise, the living libraries of folklore who relayed knowledge as old as time to all of society and functioned to keep society unified by the bonds of blood and the shared past of generations of ancestors. Unsurprisingly the loss of this class has been the most terrible blow Europeans have been dealt for thousands of years, along with the loss of the library of Alexandria, the disappearance of the priests of the old lore has left the distant past shrouded in great mystery and we are left with only scraps of lore from related peoples like the Greeks or the Vedic Hindus.
Lastly was the only class that survives even remotely intact, the workers, the freemen, slaves, labourers and the like.
In the middle ages all three existed, though the growing merchantile class began to break up the third class I mentioned and began the creation of what we would now call a middle class and the priestly class now served to impose a foreign ideology on the masses and eat away at the bonds that once united a people, remarkably though by the fourteenth century the Christianity that was being taught had been Europeanised to such an extent that the main complaints were of church corruption rather than the alien nature of its ideas and theology, and the church hierarchy was every bit as complicated as our class system is today.
My conception of the class system today bears all of this in mind. The middle classes, some of whom may have noble blood, are for the most part descended from the peasants that made up 90% approximately of the medieval population, just like the working class. The nobility who are so small I number today, made up a large minority of the population of prehistoric Europe. All of us are seasoned with the blood of noble and commoner alike. But I postulate that true nobility is not necessarily present in those who possess a title, and can in fact manifest in those who possess some noble blood but who no longer bear a title. That is the true nobility, the intelligence, culture and moral responsibility felt by the greatest among us. I have other theories on this also, such as divine blood claimed by ancient Scandinavian kings and the blood of the Volsungs making itself known in those chosen by Odin. I have rambled but my point stands, that three classes of Aryan (politically incorrect I know, read as indo-European if you get a touch of the vapours from reading that) exist, one is obsolete and will only exist when we reestablish a healthy society, one will remain confused and devoid of hope in the meanwhile and the other, the noble of heart and of blood, will lead one and prepare the way for the other.
Hail Odin.
