Traditionalism Discussion Group
What was intended to be(come) a discussion group when I started this project in March 2012, has become yet another website instead. Inspite of the fact that there are 126 “likers” on Facebook, there has been close to no discussion in the last year and half. 9 People registered for the forums. 3 Of them have introduced themselves there. No further discussion ever appeared. I have tried to make a public platform outside the private forum. One person has posted the only two comments that I ever received. On Facebook there has been an occasional “like”, but that is it.
Perhaps my security measures for the websites are too high, but then again, on the public part anyone can reply without having to register or anything. Maybe people have other places to discuss these kinds of subjects, but actually I am afraid that people just want to be entertained rather than to think and discuss.
Maintaining a website is an effort. Writing, software updates, security, the whole deal. Since there are more places on the internet where you might find the same information, I have decided to take the website offline.
Should you want to still discuss Traditionalism please visit the excellent Traditional Studies forum. To read (about) Traditionalism you can visit the free online journal Luvah, buy Sacred Web, or visit Mark Sedgewick's website and blog.
As for myself, Traditionalism still makes part of my personal website's articles and book reviews sections. It is just that here I wanted to take Traditionalism out of my larger worldview as presented on Gangleri.nl. (For those who know Monas.nl from before the Traditionalism Discussion Group, Gangleri.nl is the place where you want to be).
I am not sure what to do with the Facebook group yet, but it might well disappear as well, since it was mostly to direct people to this website.
I want to thank the people who took the time to register or interact. Perhaps we will 'meet' at some other place.
