    Do You Believe Germanics Are Superior to Other Europeans?

    So, forget the white race stuff for a minute, this is a forum for Germanics.

    Now, to avoid all the debates from the other thread about what superiority is, superiority I define as better achievements, whether in number or quality/impact in areas of culture, science, i.e. anywhere where the brain and intelligence needed to be used.

    I think we have enough "do you" polls to last us a decade.

    I think that Germanics are superior to other Europeans in some regards and inferior in others. This is true of the comparison of any two things.

    I voted No, as Europeans generally are high achievers. For example, even in their "lean years", the Italians gave us the internal combustion engine, the electric battery and the telephone.

    On a different note, the Japanese & Chinese have an ability to take the inventions of Europeans and produce excellent products, yet I am sceptical that they possess the same creative spark as the European minds.

    But certainly the inventive spirit, which improves our lives, and the creation of engaging culture, are in common to all Europeans.

    I voted 'other' as it is hard to make such claims when considering the broad historical perspective.

    In terms of 'achievements', what do we make of the ancient Greeks? The Greeks established many of the most fundamental concepts that came to form the basis of Western Civilization. Now, I don't know exactly how the ancients can be classified racially (I don't believe that they are identical to modern 'Greeks', for example), but they can't be considered 'Germanics', can they? They achieved these things at a time when the cultural level of "proto-Germanics" was conspicuously low. Whatever they might have been admired for later by the ancients, they (the Germanics in the ancient world) were certainly not comparable in intellectual culture.

    In the modern world, the Germanic nations that were carved out of the ruins of the Roman Empire have definitely achieved a great deal, but even then, in what sense are absolute statements of "superiority" in achievement justified? Are they justified on the basis of the relative number of high achievers when compared to the population writ large? This might make Germanics superior to the East Asian races, but what about Jews? The Ashkenazi Jews have produced achievers at a relatively higher rate than Germanics, especially in more recent decades. More than anything, I think it's because they are just more motivated given their status as an "encircled minority" (I would estimate the Ashkenazi IQ to be around 108-110, on average). Still, where does that leave us?

    On a sidenote, it's amazing how egalitarian and PC people become when it comes to inter-white comparisons.

    Not to Celtics, if you look at all the Scottish inventors and thinkers, and the modern example of Ireland.

    Even the slavs do fairly well when not handicapped by a retarded political system.

    Southern Europeans, have some points in favor of being equal, and many not. There have been many achievements from this area in past eras, but it is disputed as to how much those judged as 'southern Europeans' in the modern era are related to the ancient Greeks and Romans, or the high achieving elements of those societies.

    It's more a cultural problem than one of intellect or inherent criminality, southern and even eastern Europe definitely has a lazier and more collectivist culture.

    There have been various prosperous peoples who were responsible for crucial turning points in civilization, Germanics weren't the only ones. The most critical achievers of all were unquestionably the river valley civilizations(Sumer, Harappa) at the time when Europe was just an irrelevance to the civilized world.

    I take issue with your assertion regarding the telephone; Antonio Meucci did not invent it, that's just an example of standard Italian petulance.

    While I certainly agree that Europeans in general rise above other racial groups in virtually all respects, it is the Germanic peoples whose accomplishments have made the greatest and most eternal contributions to civilization today. In the fields of exploration, conquest, technological innovation, and countless other interests, it is the Germanic presence which has exceeded all parallels from other groups.

    The Romans and associated Southern Europeans may have, for a time, sat at the helm of Europe, but their inability to manage and perpetuate their accomplishment is demonstrative of their inferiority to the Germanics and their Empires that rose across the continent in the wake of their downfall. The Romance peoples of today have fallen victim to defilement of their race by way of inter-breeding with Negroid and Semitic invaders, and thus cannot be contrasted to their historical counterparts. Slavics are a non-issue; the nations these semi-Mongols have carved out have, time and time again, proven to be consistent failures. Regardless of the era in question, their lack of civility is complimented by an inability to establish a stable governmental or societal system.

    While many use pseudo-arguments in an attempt to establish equality between Germanics and the aforementioned, evidence suggests it is, in fact, Hellenics that prove the greatest contender to Germanics for European supremacy. Their pioneering work in politics, science, and philosophy, especially when the applicable point in time is taken into account, is certainly worthy of comparison.
