    One could just as easily say the same thing for any Germanics. Heres an example:

    Russia, a non Germanic country, has historically had many Germanic leaders. Italy has also been controlled by Germanics, as has Spain, Portugal, France, Poland, etc. etc. I think its fair to say most prominent European Monarchs were indeed Germanic, or partially so.

    I had a class with a Finn who only spoke Swedish (very E-B but I digress) and he said that where he lives in Finland it is considered "inferior" to speak Finnish instead of Swedish. That just shows you the system in place that has been in that country ever since Sweden owned it. Very interesting.

    He must have been from a region that is mostly inhabited by Swedish speakers. Those are not many; only few hillbilly municipalities in western Finland.

    My colleagues at my current working place are some 70% Swedish, either bilingual or unilingual, but the working language is Finnish. As for the average looks of Swedish speakers at my work, they don't look any different from the Finnish speakers, except few darker, Alpin(o)id individuals who also are unilingually Swedish.

    As for how "ruling" is divided, majority of the superior officials are Finnish speakers.

    There is hope for Sweden with the growing nationalist movement. I'm tired of the doomsday prophecy ranting that is always going on about Sweden in particular. The Netherlands and the U.S.A. are doing quite bad too, I'd say worse, but you rarely if ever hear people rant the way you do in this thread about it. To me, it is a depressing sight, but I know that there's a good deal of psychological projection involved.
    God expects but one thing of you,
    and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made
    and let God be God in you.

    It might be that Sweden's situation looks worse than Netherlands for example, because Sweden is more sparsely populated but all the mud is concentrated on cities. It's the same thing in Netherlands I suppose, but Netherlands is more urbanized.

    But there is no denying that Sweden's direction IS straight to Hell. According to statistics, it won't take long after native Swedes are the biggest ethnic minority in Sweden. And then, not even the biggest.... Even if the nationalist movement is growing strongly, would that help to correct things back like they were in let's say 50's? My opinion is, not without breaking loads of eggs, if you know what I mean... And certain powers like UN, NATO and such will most certainly intervene, in similar manner Serbs were beaten in their homelands last decade.

    Fine, you can keep me grumpy then. You don't need to educate me about what's going on in Sweden as if I was in some kind of denial. It's all OT btw, for if you think that this means that Swedes are natural born loosers, which is what someone else said in this thread, well, FCOL this is a Germanic forum and I'll say no more!

    I know that Norway relies quite significantly on NATO for protection; does Sweden too? If so it'd be difficult to make any moves. In a way it is unfortunate that these countries are in this situation. Even if it were politically feasible for them to instantiate changes, is there enough of a will amongst the general populace and members of the establishment to move things forward?

    I have not said that Swedes are natural born losers, you said that.

    well, FCOL this is a Germanic forum and I'll say no more!
    Lol, so I am not alllowed to state my opinion then, in this forum?

    Just tell me, where I have stated anything anti-Germanic in this thread, or elsewhere on thealthing? Just to let you know, criticizing the current situation of Sweden is not an anti-Swedish (or anti-Germanic) thing to do. First and foremostly I'm utterly worried for the crappy situation of a neighbour.

    LOOOOOOOOOL, you are trolling, and here you go (since you're too lazy to read up):

    I swear it brings me no pleasure to say this, but not saying it will not make the reality of the matter go away:

    All Althing members who were born in ther late 60's or later can expect tthe see the collapse of Sweden as it is curretly known. This WILL happen, through a mathematical and demographic certainly.

    Sweden relies upon ghosts of Finns who fought for her while her men took
    it easy. Besides, war is declared a bad thing in Sweden and therefore it can not occur. But seriuosly, since when did Viking Kings need protection? Ha!
