Pagan authenticity

In the post Fake Druidry and Ogreld, A Druid Way expresses a radical disinterest in continuity with the ancients, quoting John Michael Greer..

I’m a fake Druid. So is everyone else who names Druidry as the path they walk. And I’ve come to love it.

One of these days I need to write at length about modern Paganism as a response to the postmodern crisis of Authenticity. Until then, this lovely sentiment will do.

Oh I love that! Quite charming, and apropos. We are after all, modern Pagans - no matter how fevently we might look to our ancestors for inspiration, ultimately we are living in the 21st century. I think that is to be embraced.
