It's quite common, particularly in modern Pagan books, to see people promote their ideas as being "traditional." What do people think about this? Do they find the label "traditional" makes them more interested in the things being said, or does it make you suspicious? I've seen the label "traditional" trotted out by some as a way of trying to appear superior to others, even though when you look at what they do they are not really any different from those who don't claim to be "traditional." Is there are right reason to use the label, and a wrong reason? Within the Wiccan community, the label "tradition" is also used to mean "sect" or "established system." Is this making the label less meaningful, since someone who makes up a coherent system or sect yesterday could call themselves "traditional" as a result?
