    Question Why Are There So Few Nordics/Scandinavians Interested in Germanic Identity?

    I noticed that on almost every nationalist forum, Germanic, European or whatever, there are few Nordic/Scandinavian people. Why is that? An inability to speak English or lack of interest in kinship with other Germanic/European people? As I noticed from the small map on the index, there are many visits from Sweden on Skadi, but very few people register. I'm intrigued.

    The Nordic countries are some of the most liberal and xenophilic countries in Europe. Just look at the shitholes some cities in Sweden have become and some population embracing it in the name of diversity.

    An inability to speak English
    Scandinavians (especially Swedes) are famous for their facility in learning English, probably because their languages are very closely related to English.

    They're considered to be the most fluent, non-native English, English speakers. I can testify that almost every Stockholmer I've met speaks fluent English, and with a perfect accent

    or lack of interest in kinship with other Germanic/European people?
    This is probably the reason, I am afraid. Too much brainwashing and anti-nationalist propaganda

    I thought there was a good number of Swedes on here. I'm not sure but isn't Sweden a pretty small country? I mean population wise...

    There is not a problem with speaking English, here in Norway we learn English from third grade

    Don't know about the other Nordic peoples but Swedes in general simply doesn't like to debate.
    We enjoy a peaceful conversation among friends but we're not one bit interested in trying to convince a person who is of a different opinion than our own to change his beliefs. This is also the reason why you never hear a political discussion at a Swedish dinner table. If there happens to be people of diametrically different political opinions present at a dinner or some other gathering we simply talk about something else.
    I think this is quite obvious if you look at Swedish Internet forums or comment fields for Internet based newspapers. The wast majority of all the posts are written by a rather small number of posters. Same goes for the discussion pages at Swedish Wikipedia.


    I also think that the notion of all Germanic tribes belonging to one people and having something in common is quite new and maybe a bit strange to most Swedes that visit Skadi for the first time.


    Another thing is that even if most Swedes speak a decent English I believe that most of us find it much more difficult to write in English than to speak it.


    And finally I have to admit that most Swedes are a bit self-contempt. They're not necessarily all that interested in the opinions of you foreigners out there.

    Probably because Sweden isn't as bad as the United States, Canada, England or Germany? Let's send a few million blacks to Stockholm and all the major cities and towns, and you'll get your posters.

    Are you serious? Have you ever seen those videos from places like Malmö?
