    I don't know how women are doing in Germany, but I can't imagine there are too big differences from how Norwegian women are doing.

    It also depends a bit about what you mean by "feminist paradise". Do you have any specific examples of how they present Norway in your media?
    But in general, I believe Norway is one of the most feminist countries out there.

    If there was a direct democracy election where every citizen had voted solely on the "quota for men/women" issue, then I'm quite sure most would have said no. Same goes for the decision to implement the EU Data Retention Directive.

    Norway is a beautiful country, with beautiful people and a heart-warming culture. I would certainly live there if I did not already live here.

    How many Nationalist or National-Socialist groups belong to Norway?

    ---

    On another note, the cheese from Norway is very good.





    And another thing, I think Hersir said that Sami people are viewed as white... I must disagree with them actually being white. They are not genetically European, even though they may be seen as European. They're a finno-Ugric people. There is certainly a noticeable degree of assimilation between the Nordic Norwegians and the Sami where the borders meet, though.



    And they do have some pretty intriguing houses.




    Oh, and one last interesting fact; the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle is that which was used in the production of the Lord of The Rings trilogy. It is the unique and crisp sounding instrument that gave rise to the Lord of The Rings characteristic Rohirrim/Rohan soundtrack.

    At this point, what about advertisements like this, that can be found at many norwegian magazines? That sounds horrible

    I love Annbjørg Lien with her Hardanger
    Sadly I can't afford this instrument myself.

    Only one NS group active, pretty typical skinhead. Their organisation stems from Sweden.

    I can't think of any nationalist groups, but we have many organisations devoted to Norwegian culture, crafts and history.

There is certainly a noticeable degree of assimilation between the Nordic Norwegians and the Sami where the borders meet, though.
    Most samis live in Oslo, not bordering to any sami area. There are none defined borders between sami and Norwegian areas anymore. Both the samis and finns are certainly European, but we know the Finns have noticeable different genetics than us. (http://strangemaps.files.wordpress.c...apofeurope.jpg) "The isolation of Finnish genetics can be explained by the fact that they were at one time a very small population, preserving its genetic idiosyncrasies as it expanded." Although they have lived somewhat isolated from Norwegians, Swedes and Russians, we know there was even mixing with samis in the viking age. For example, Eirik Blodøks married a sami woman, Gunnhild. (Håkon Adalsteinsfostre later killed her).

    If the samis were that asian, it would have shown in their phenotype. Some samis have noticeable different traits from us Norwegians, but most don't. Many skadites claim the sami look Mongolian, but that's hogwash. If they had seen a group of samis in real life, I'm positive they would have a pretty hard time telling them apart from us Norwegians.

    No samis in Norway lives like that, it's just for show and tourism. Most samis in northern Europe lives in Oslo and many don't even know of their background because Norway had a campaign to assimilate them. Many samis are still ashamed of their heritage.



    And our dairy products are great, even though I can't eat and drink them anymore. My mom remember drinking a weakly fermented milk called skyr when she was growing up, we know of this type of milk from the viking age too. Children would usually get normal milk called sweet milk, but the skyr could be preserved much longer and was kept in large tubs. Beer and milk were normally drunk in earlier times as the water was polluted and water was considered to be only for animals to drink. The Mongolians still still drink fermented milk from horse, it is their alcohol, but in Norway we have lost most of our dairy culture because of transition from a farmer society to a post-industrial one.

    As for National Socialism, we have Nordfront (eller Norske Motstandsbevegelsen/The Norwegian Resistance Movement), which Hersir already mentioned, and Vigrid (official website in Norwegian - English Wikipedia). Vigrid is quite loosely organized, and not that active these days, I think. Their leader Tore Tvedt has apparently retired, and he claims the organization is closed down. He continues, however, to write articles on the Vigrid website (much about Zionism and Jewry), and he is the most well-known Nazi-demon in Norway. If Nordfront continue their activities for some time, they will probably take over that role.

    We don't have any serious, openly Nationalist organizations in Norway these days, if you rule out right-wing populists and perhaps some mild civic nationalism, anti-islamist counter-jihadists and National Socialists.

    And another thing, I think Hersir said that Sami people are viewed as white...
    That depends on who you ask. Many Norwegians don't use that word at all, while those anti-European multiculturalist freaks who use it as a word of absolute Evil, will probably not consider the Sami "white", since they have been such a poor, suppressed minority, victims of the evil Norwegian majority, you know. As Hersir pointed out, many Norwegians most likely won't think the Sami are less "white" than any other ethnicity. Their pigmentation is light, after all, and the majority of them look more Caucasoid than Mongoloid.

    I must disagree with them actually being white. They are not genetically European, even though they may be seen as European.
    Well, if you look at genetic analyses of the Sami, you will see that they are far more Europid genetically than Asian. The most dominant genetic element in their gene-pool is from the Northern European hunter-gatherers. This is also the most dominant element in ethnic Norwegians (or Swedes). The main genetic difference between the Sami and Scandinavians (Norwegian, Swedes and Danes) is that the Scandinavians have got a stronger influence from later waves of people that entered Scandinavia (Indo-European speakers, farmers...), while the Sami have a considerably stronger genetic input from North Asia, Siberian tribes probably. I think that this element is 20% at most in Sami individuals, while a lot of them have less than this. So although most Sami have an Asian influence, the Northern European hunter-gatherer influence is far more dominant.

    They're a finno-Ugric people.
    Yeah, they speak a Finno-Ugric language. But "Finno-Ugrics" are not a separate race or anything. I think some people tend to over-mystify these things. Finns are also predominantly derived from European hunter-gatherers, the same influence that we see in all other Europeans, but more of it in the more northern populations of Europe. The Finns do indeed have other influences that make them different from, say, Norwegians and Swedes (or Germanic-speaking groups generally), but to think they are some king of separate, non-European "Finno-Ugric" racial group that is something else entirely, is fantasy.
    "Man evolved in cooperating groups united by common cultural and genetic ties, and it is only in such a setting that the individual can feel truly free, and truly protected. Men cannot live happily alone and without values or any sense of identity…" - Alain de Benoist
