    I've Been Lurking for a While, I'll Try Adding to the Discussion

    I don't know if I'll post much here. I got turned off by my whole time on other boards of this nature. I won't mention the sites I was active on, but I will say that one site was a very popular one. It started growing on me to the point where I almost felt obligated to post something I didn't really believe in or care about just to not be seen as a troll or "true nationalist". I really have very little ill will in general, and I usually direct it at things and ideas if I do feel hatred.

    Anyway, aside from a few Celtic lines from Scotland and Ireland, I could probably count myself "fully" Germanic, though no one ethnicity dominates aside from Swedish. I don't consider myself a hardcore nationalist, but this could be just getting used to the way things are currently. I'm mostly just interested in talking about the ways of the nations that descended out of Sweden and Germany around the early AD period. I do appreciate history in a general sense around the globe. Egypt, Mesoamerica, Japan and the ancient Middle East are areas that I'm interested in, but I feel the Greco-Roman-Judaic (Mediterranean) slant on my own people's history keeps Germanic discussion in the realm of ridicule, fantasy, and obscurity.

    I started to come to an awakening about 10-15 years ago that the whole system today is mostly Germanics dominating, but trying to imitate the ways of Mediterraneans because their own ways were "backwards", "medieval", etc. Very little attention is given to what the Germanic people were, and what their culture was. It made me wonder what was being hidden, and why. Thankfully, the internet was just getting popular around this time, and I could study my own ancestral history.

    I'm pretty spiritually-minded, but my views often clash with others. I'm pretty indifferent to modern politics and legalism, and feel much of the governing could be done if we re-instituted a stronger tribal structure and people had more honor.

    Welcome; I believe we shall have much to discuss, you and I. My views, too, are very spiritually-oriented and also often clash with many around me.

    I think you will find that the Classical prejudice to history has started to die in Academia as more attention is paid to the Middle Ages and there is more willingness to admit that the structure of Antiquity-Dark Ages-Renaissance-Enlightenment-Modernity, or more simply Classics-Middle Ages-Modernity, is inherently flawed, misleading, and restrictive.

    I certainly agree with you about modern politics. The whole basket of apples is rotten, and I'd rather not waste my time rooting through the bushel to find the unblemished one I know does not exist.

    Welcome again, I look forward to conversing with you.

    Welcome here, ThroughTheAges. You don't have to feel obligated to post things you don't believe in as not to be seen as a troll. I think I know which site you're referring to, and if it's the one indeed, you'll see Skadi is a little bit more diverse in ideology and thought than it.

    I hope you enjoy the stay.
