    Im actually kinda sick of " Greco-Roman " culture.

    In school in America, all you learn about is that. The only Germanic story ever told in class was like Beowulf. Its kind of ridiculous to teach southern European history and myths, hell we even learned about Odyssus, but not at all about our own culture. It kind of was the door opening my awakening, I began to get more and more mad that the teachers seemed to not even know about any of our own culture. So honestly, I don't like the Roman culture nor Greek culture.

    They probably didn't. In the US, most teachers are people who wanted to do something else but realized halfway through college that they didn't have the aptitude to do so. Teaching was the fall back career.

    I greatly admire both, even if they aren't Germanic and are always stealing the spotlight in academics. Their racial character was similar to our own, such as how almost the entire House of Fabii was wiped out in one battle to save Rome, how the Romans captured a Carthaginian ship and proceeded to mass produce it and beat them in the next battle, the leadership of Pericles during the Peloponesian War, their high art, literature and philosophy which blows away modern trash etc etc etc.

    Had the Greeks fallen to Persia instead of vice versa Northern Europe could have been their next target, although I wouldn't be surprised if a tribal confederation could have beaten them with climate, tactics, ferocity, etc.

    Their fall is a warning against decadence, illegal immigration, hyper legality and bureacracy, unrestrained executive power, and interbreeding.

    If you research the pedigrees of the Saxons and the franks you will find that they both go back to crete, and troy!

    If you have seen the skeletal remains of the Romans you would see that they were quite too short to be nordic.

    I remember reading that the average ancient Roman was five feet somthing.

    I'm not sure about the Greeks in comparison but I wouldn't try to describe their ancient ancestors as being nordic either.

    I have a problem with people claiming the ancient Greeks and Romans to be ancient nordics especially when there is no proof for that.

    That's about as silly in comparison to those who believe that ancient Egypt was started by a vast amount of nordic aryans as well. [Yes some of the pharoahs and queens had red or blonde hair but such exceptions does not define the general consensus of ancient Egypt or the fact that most ancient Egyptians depicted in glyphs have red skin.]

    As for Greco Roman people I respect them in being a main part as innovators of western culture along with Germanic culture.

    I respect ancient Greek and Roman culture despite their past historical invasions of Germanic tribes.

    Of course there is more to Italian and Greek culture to be appreciated other than their ancient past as well too.

    [Their food for starters.]

    Particularly with ancient Greeks I like their vast amount of surviving ancient writing and literature along with them being instrumental in creating western philosophy somthing of which I hold very close to my heart.

    If it wasn't for the story of Socrates constantly recalled in my early childhood as I often read about the man I might of never gone into philosophy as much as I have had being that philosophy is one of my life long passions.
    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    I really enjoy learning about the Romans and Greeks.

    But they never taught us about the Celtics or Germanics in school- that really angers me.

    In school we learn about tribes from all around the world, the Indians the Egyptians the Roman Empire the Babylonians the Chinese (we learned nothing on northern European peoples), then we go strait to Columbus- skipping everything in between the fall of rome and 1492 and anything that happened in northern Europe.

    The first time we talked about northern Europe is the paragraph on world war 2 then the paragraph on the holocaust.

    They don't teach about our genetic origins and human evolution- (read "the 10,000 year explosion"), the vikings, our ancient cultures, linguistic history or so many more things.

    Our history classes in school suck.

    Agreed.

    They should address more about the values and contributions of many ethnic European cultures other than what they currently do.

    I seem to recall my school teaching us about Erik the Red and the Viking exploration of North America.

    Greco-Roman Culture

    As for the teaching of the subject of Greco-Roman culture, the reason being, that the majority of the Modern Western Cultural Institutions are derived from them. No too mention, that is what the State requires the Teacher to teach as the basic core curricula. If they were to strike out on their own, they'd be out of a job. As for our schools, we also require the teaching of other cultural institutions contributions to our Modern Western Culture.

    As for other learning outside of the core curricula, there is the Library. You do know what a Library is and for? All it takes is a little of your time, unless you're lazy... So don't blame the Teacher.
