British paganism may be waning



Or so says this provocative post, citing the aging population, the closure of specialty bookstores, and other trends. But "the decline in British Paganism does not mean in the slightest that magical practice, animistic beliefs and ritual, British folkways, or the celebration of the wild and mythic heritage of these islands as a whole is under threat. Indeed, I would suggest to the contrary; that all these cultural practices are very much alive, and growing, amongst the younger generations as anywhere—indeed, witchy stuff, hippy vibes, eco-activism, and nature mysticism are more on trend than ever," it says.

Hat tip, Tyler Cowen.
