Current Events Forum

One of the reasons I left Skadi years ago was that it had turned into a sewing circle. There has not been much change.

Rather than dwell of history, racial classification, food, and drink, what about current events? Don't you think what has happened in Germany and most of Western Europe is of the greatest concern and merits the highest priority?

There ought to be a forum dedicated to discussing these pressing events which is more accessible to people of every country since they involve people of every country and not dumbed down to discussions country by country.

IIRC discussion of current events is trouble unless you are careful to be unbiased. History is fine unless one touches upon taboos, mind. And when you know the past you know 1/2 of the present as well.

When these forums get taken down whats the betting its for current events, not Nordish craniometry or threads about Pumpernickel?

Thank you Thorburn. For some reason my Skadi Forum index did not provide this as an offering.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. It seems to me the issues impacting Germanics as well as most Western Europeans are immigration and the failure to identify Sunni Fundamentalism and it terror component for the disruption and danger that it is. I don't know how we can talk about this enough.

All I'm saying is explicit political discussion invites political repression under certain political situations.

Is the Skadi server still in the USA? If so, as long as we have a 2nd Amendment, the 1st Amendment is in no danger nor would Skadi be in danger of political recrimination.

But members were arrested in Austria don't forget.

That and remember forums are not places for activist outreach anymore that role is for the social media accounts these days. Do you want to feel miserable about how many rapes in Germany, anyway? Impotent dwelling upon the unpleasantries from the news darkens the tone nothing more.

We are all suffering from the aftermath of WWII. So why shouldn't it be discussed? Inform yourself >> 4 Reasons Why WWII is Relevant to Today

There's no need to be paranoid. Skadi is a Germanic mythology forum compared to Thiazi, in the eye of the public. There's hardly anything hardcore on this forum. No NS imagery, no RAC music, hardly even a racial slur. So why should we avoid discussing about what affects our lives everyday? Forums that ban political discussion are ridiculous. What are you going to talk about? What Vikings ate for dinner is interesting as a sidefact, but of no immediate concern. Our immediate concern should be how to secure a future for our Germanic children. Without discussion of current events, there's no conclusion.

I didn't say ban such discussions I said to be careful with the tone. Highbrow stuff is fine lowbrow stuff lowers the tone and invites negative attention. Besides World War 2 is history not current affairs.
