    No one makes a difference? Yet still you want to be remembered when you die for the differences you... didnt make?

    To say that "Regular people like us" never will make a difference is a understatement imo. Anyone can make a difference if they want to, its merely a question of enthusiasm and will. I do doubt that we make a difference by posting online, but activities in real life kan make a difference in the long run.

    And, we are nothing compared to eternity? People have done things that will be remembered forever (Jesus, Caesar etc.). And people will continue doing things that will "echo on in eternity". Claiming that everything we do now just doesnt make a difference is like saying that we just as well could quit what we are doing. Because in the end - it doesnt matter anyway.

    Internet forums have been highly influential to my world view, and I suspect that the same is true for others, particularly those with obscure ideologies.

    More to make it easier for outsiders and insiders to meet in VR. Since in real life it can be a bit more difficult. But without action in reallife it would mean little .

    A place like Skadi should anchor us to Germanic interests, despite different settings and problems being dealt with. It's better to have this place as a digital repository than not any, since mainstream books and journals have fallen out of fashion. Germanic heritage is extant and as relevant as ever.
