    Well, just what word would you chose to describe our mutual ancestry and diaspora? I pride myself on being "Germanic" it's so much more than being simply 'German'.

    I like Teutonic a lot.

    Kaiser Wilhelm II referred to England and Germany as the "great teutonic powers" and felt they had a natural alliance due to common blood.

    Teutonic is a kickass word as well.
    But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever.

    I rather like Teutonic too (though even that has been used as a synonym for "German").

    From what I have read, the word "Germanic" is at least as old as the 1630s. I am sure that back then it was used almost exclusively by individuals who taught and were educated at the various universities. Even today you will come across very few people who would describe themselves as such. Apart from forums such as Skadi, its usage is probably limited to these very same students or scholars. I doubt that the conspirators have forced it upon us as a way of preventing a unified spirit. They have kept our people separated with far more effective tools of subtle genocide: The multi-cult, porn, video games, fashion obsession, White guilt, drugs, etc.
    Sadly, using the word "Germanic" in speech will eventually be thought of as eccentric, much in the same way many already feel about the word "Teutonic".

    I use the word "Japhetic".


    Unfortunately the Khazars are Japhetic too. lol

    None the less, I think Japhetic is the most expressive to include all the peoples we intent (minus the Khazars of course).

    These days, most people using the term Germanic/Germanisch/Germanisk are linguistics students.

    I think the word is probably fine, other than the fact that it ironically is a foreign word. A good replacement would be ðēodisc maybe, Theodish. I doubt the majority of people will really ever identify as Germanic anyway, even if they recognise the relationship their people have with other Germanics.

    We should use the word Germanic as that is what we are. We all belong to the Germanic language group whether we speak English, Swedish, German, Dutch, etc.

    I don't feel any connection to the Celts as I don't share those blood lines or much of their language. The term white should not be used as that could be used for Slavs, meds, or other European races.

    As far as people of English decent they were also part of the Germanic tribes and therefore are Germanics also. Even the Normans were a Germanic people.

    We should encourage the use of the word Germanic and be proud of it. We should discourage the use of the term white.

    That is my thoughts on the matter anyway.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    That is just a problem for the English-speakers . Because in your language the word for the people of Germany as well for those of this branch of the Indo-European tree are practically the same.

    But for the larger population is does not matter what kind of term you use, unless the term is strongly camouflaging. Since the general socio-cultural thinking is hostile to things Germanic. And prefer to see their culture as anything but being dominantly Germanic.

    Changing a term that covers the load is not the solution for the problem. The problem is the lack of knowledge among the general population about the positive aspects of our Germanic cultural heritage.

    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    No Englishman? I would think highly of any Englishman who could overcome the brainwashing that caused hatred of the Germans in the first place. You must remember that Britain entered both wars by choice, when they did not have to, and the leaders of Germany at the time were specifically Anglophiles who did not want war with the UK. Your leaders were tools, just like our leaders are today, and they led you astray into a war against your kinsmen. We have to learn to refocus on the real enemy, but that requires spitting in the face of propaganda and being TRUE leaders, of first our own minds. The jew says being anti-semitic is evil and to hate Germans is good? Why did anyone listen to this?

    Yes, whatever the word might be, it can always be manipulated by the masters of propaganda... if we pay attention to them. If we, however, laugh in their faces and tell them to go stuff themselves, the greater the victory for us.

    Actually, this would be a sub-ideal replacement. Because the German word for this is --- yes, you're right, deutsch < thiudisk < theodiscus. As such we'd just be removing an obstacle for the English native-speakers and create a new one in the same vein for German native-speakers.

    This would be against English interest ultimately, because most Germans with at least a half-ways decent upbringing enjoying a classical education will be aware of the fact that the Scandinavians and the Dutch are also Germanics, but many simply forget about the English.

    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-
