Thread: Germanic Picture of the Day

    Knut Hamsun

    "Our planet will be a nuclear desert when the American Empire based on it's religion of economic growth and hypocrisy ultimately collapses."
    Knut Hamsun, the Great Norwegian philosopher and Nobel prize winner.

    In 1945 at the age of 86, the Nobel laureate novelist Knut Hamsun wrote an obituary of
    Adolf Hitler in the newspaper Aftenposten. Hamsun's eulogy to Hitler served as the collaborationist newspaper's feature article on Hitler's death.

    Adolf Hitler

    I'm not worthy to speak up for Adolf Hitler, and to any sentimental rousing his life and deeds do not invite.

    Hitler was a warrior, a warrior for humankind and a preacher of the gospel of justice for all nations. He was a reforming character of the highest order, and his historical fate was that he functioned in a time of exampleless [unequalled] brutality, which in the end felled him.

    Thus may the ordinary Western European look at Adolf Hitler. And we, his close followers, bow our heads at his death.

    Knut Hamsun.

    In younger years, Hamsun had anarchist leanings of an anti-egalitarian, racially conscious bent. In The Cultural Life of America (1889), he expressed his fear of miscegenation: "The Negros are and will remain Negros, a nascent human form from the tropics, rudimentary organs on the body of white society. Instead of founding an intellectual elite, America has established a mulatto studfarm."[23]

    Following the Second Boer War, he adopted increasingly conservative views. He also came to be known as a prominent advocate of Germany and German culture, as well as a rhetorical opponent of British imperialism and the Soviet Union. During both the First and the Second World War, he publicly expressed his sympathy for Germany. His sympathies were heavily influenced by the impact of the Boer War, seen by Hamsun as British oppression of a small people, as well as by his dislike of the English and distaste for the USA.

    A man any country would be proud of.

    Gold ring with runes found in Norway.
    Runologist Jonas Nordby says it's likely we are dealing with a male name ending in "-mr" (Grímr, for example) followed by á mi[k]. So put together it says "(male name) owns me".
    Dating based on the runes themselves is uncertain, but Jonas says the runes are younger and that the r rune is used in the nominative ending (instead of the yr rune), which indicates that
    the ring is probably not older than the beginning of the 1000s, but it might as well originate in the 1300s.

    Arnt Harald Stange is the metal detectorist pictured who found the ring. Quite the find.
