    Learning Basque

    I'm looking for a new language to learn. I'm thinking about learning Basque a Pre-Indo-European Language.

    Why would I do that?
    Bosque is the ONLY original western European language left from before the Indo-European language expansion (an expansion which originated in southern Russia).

    So wouldn't it hold that out of all the languages known today the closest to our most distantly known ancestors is the Basque language.

    What do you guys think?

    Without any perspective from "the outside", it's hard to see what's so special and great about Germanic languages.

    Well technically Icelandic can be traced back to the Proto-Indo-European language in Southern Russia.

    The only truly western European language still left that originated in Western Europe is Basque.

    I would love to keep it Germanic but the connection to Basque is probably much greater and deeper to our ancestors (going back before the Proto-Indo-European expansion which happend around 6,000 BC to 4,000 BC).

    I'd like to learn Gaelic. Maybe then I would finally understand what is being sung in Gaelic when I listen to some folk music.
    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.
