Northern Europe and Nordic Countries

Northern Europe is a loosely defined geographical region in Europe. Narrower definitions may describe Northern Europe as being roughly north of the southern coast of the Baltic Sea, which is about 54°N, or may be based on other geographical factors such as climate and ecology. A broader definition would include the area of Europe north of the Alps (but excluding Eastern Europe).

Historically, when Europe was dominated by the Roman Empire, everything not near the Mediterranean region was termed Northern European, including southern Germany, all of the Low Countries, and Austria. This meaning is still used today in some contexts, for example, discussions of the Northern Renaissance.

Geography 

Northern Europe might be defined roughly to include some or all of the following areas: British IslesFennoscandia, the peninsula of Jutland, the Baltic plain that lies to the east and the many islands that lie offshore from mainland Northern Europe and the main European continent. In some cases, Greenland is also included.

The area is partly mountainous, including the northern volcanic islands of Iceland and Jan Mayen, and the mountainous western seaboard, Scotland and Scandinavia, and also often includes part of the large plain east of the Baltic sea.

The entire region’s climate is at least mildly affected by the Gulf Stream. From the west climates vary from maritime and maritime subarctic climates. In the north and central climates are generally subarctic or Arctic and to the east climates are mostly subarctic and temperate/continental.

Just as both climate and relief are variable across the region, so too is vegetation, with sparse tundra in the north and high mountains, boreal forest on the north-eastern and central regions temperate coniferous forests (formerly of which a majority was in the Scottish Highlands and south west Norway) and temperate broadleaf forests growing in the south, west and temperate east.

Classifications 

Various definitions of Northern Europe often include the Nordic countries, and may also include some or all of the Baltic states, the British Islesnorthern Germany, northern Belarus and northwest Russia.

CIA World Factbook 

In the CIA World Factbook, the description of each country includes information about “Location” under the heading “Geography”, where the country is classified into a region. The following countries are included in their classification “Northern Europe”:

as well as the dependent areas

In this classification, stagnant since the Cold War era, EstoniaLatvia and Lithuania are classified as being in Eastern Europe, while the UK and Ireland are included in Western Europe.

EuroVoc 

European sub-regions according to EuroVoc:

  Northern Europe
  Western Europe
  Southern Europe
  Central and Eastern Europe

EuroVoc is a multilingual thesaurus maintained by the Publications Office of the European Union, giving definitions of terms for official use. In the definition of “Northern Europe”, the following countries are included:

as well as the dependent area

In this classification, the UK and Ireland are included in Western Europe.

Language branches in Northern Europe

  North Germanic (Iceland, Scandinavia and Faroe Islands)

  Baltic (Latvia, Lithuania)

Countries in Northern Europe generally have developed economies and some of the highest standards of living in the world. They often score highly on surveys measuring quality of life, such as the Human Development Index. Aside from the United Kingdom, they generally have a small population relative to their size, most of whom live in cities. Most peoples living in Northern Europe are traditionally Protestant Christians, although many are non-practicing. There are also growing numbers of non-religious people and people of other religions, especially Muslims, due to immigration. In the United Kingdom, there are also significant numbers of Indian religions such as Hindus and Sikhs, due to the large South Asian diaspora. The quality of education in much of Northern Europe is rated highly in international rankings, with Estonia and Finland topping the list among the OECD countries in Europe. The Hansa group in the European Union comprises most of the Northern European states.

Wikipedia

Nordic countries (orange and red) and Scandinavian countries (red)

The Nordic countries, or the Nordics, are a geographical and cultural region in Northern Europe and the North Atlantic, where they are most commonly known as Norden (literally “the North”). The term includes DenmarkFinlandIcelandNorway and Sweden, as well as the Faroe Islands and Greenland, which are both part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The Åland Islands is a part of the Republic of FinlandJan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard, which belong to the Kingdom of Norway, are also included. Bouvet Island is sometimes not considered a part of the Nordic countries due to its geographical location. Several regions in Europe such as the Northern Isles of Scotland share cultural or ethnic ties with the Nordic nations, but are not considered to be part of the Nordic countries. Scandinavians, who comprise over three quarters of the region’s population, are the largest group, followed by Finns, who comprise the majority in Finland; other ethnic groups are the Greenlandic Inuit, the Sámi people, and recent immigrants and their descendants. The native languages DanishNorwegianSwedishIcelandic, and Faroese are all North Germanic languages rooted in Old Norse. Native non-Germanic languages are FinnishGreenlandic languages and several Sámi languages. The main religion is Lutheran Christianity. 

The Nordic countries have much in common in their way of life, history, religion and social structure. The Nordic countries have a long history of political unions and other close relations, but do not form a singular entity today. The Scandinavist movement sought to unite Denmark, Norway and Sweden into one country in the 19th century. With the independence of Finland in the early 20th century, and Iceland in the mid 20th century, this movement expanded into the modern organised Nordic cooperation which includes the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Helsinki Treaty is the political agreement that sets the framework for Nordic cooperation in the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers. Especially in EnglishScandinavia is sometimes used as a synonym for the Nordic countries, but that term more properly refers to the three monarchies of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Geologically, the Scandinavian Peninsula comprises the mainland of Norway and Sweden as well as the northernmost part of Finland.

Denmark 

The exclusive economic zones and territorial waters of the Kingdom of Denmark

The Kingdom of Denmark includes the self-governing country (selvstyre) of Greenland and the self-governing country (hjemmestyre) of the Faroe Islands.

Region EEZ & TW
Area (km2) 
Land area Total
Denmark 105 989 42 506 149 083
Faroe Islands 260 995 1 399 262 394

Total 2 551 238 2 210 579 4 761 817

The Nordic countries have a combined area of around 3.5 million square kilometres and their geography is extremely varied. The area is so vast that it covers five time zones. To the east the region borders Russia, and on the west the Canadian coastline can be seen from Greenland on a clear day. Even excluding Greenland and the Norwegian islands of Svalbard and Jan Mayen, the remaining part of the Nordic countries covers around 1.3 million square kilometres. This is about the same area as France, Germany and Italy together. To the south, the countries neighbor the Baltic statesPolandGermany and the United Kingdom, while to the north there is the Arctic Ocean.

Notable natural features of the Nordic countries include the Norwegian fjords, the Archipelago Sea between Finland and Sweden, the extensive volcanic and geothermal activity of Iceland, and Greenland, which is the largest island in the world. The southernmost point of the Nordic countries is Gedser, on the island of Falster in Denmark. The northernmost point is Kaffeklubben Island in Greenland, which is also the northernmost point of land on Earth. The largest cities and capitals of the Nordic countries are situated on the southern parts of the region, with the exception of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. HelsinkiOslo and Stockholm are all close to the same latitude as the southernmost point of Greenland, Egger Island (Itilleq): about 60°N.

National symbols 

All Nordic countries, including the autonomous territories of Faroe and Åland Islands, have a similar flag design, all based on the Dannebrog, the Danish flag. They display an off-centre cross with the intersection closer to the hoist, the “Nordic cross“. Greenland and Sápmi have adopted flags without the Nordic cross, but they both feature a circle which is placed off-centre, similar to the cross.

    Interdasting.

    Always thought those of British extraction were simply Western European.

    Ever listen to Tyr? Faroese band I believe.

    Glad to read Latvia is quantified, I listen to some Latvian folk and found it remarkably similar to Celtic and Nordic folksongs I’ve heard.

      I found a couple of Tyr cover songs on my laptop: Where Eagles Dare (Iron Maiden cover) and Tyr – Cemetery Gates (Pantera cover). Yes, they are Faroese and knew each other from Faroe Islands. They meet and started Tyr in Copenhagen. I will see or hear if I like their music, in general.

      Latvia is only North European in European Union’s terminology database.

        Makes sense. What is Latvia? I’ll .
        be frank. Never really interested me as a people. Celtic, Germanic, Hellenic and Finno-Ugric peoples above and beyond my native turf are what I always loved to read about. The further east you go, as a rule, the less I find attractive. We read For My Legionaries by Corneliu Codreanu. It was interesting, but did not really resonate.

        I listened to Tyr a lot in Highschool, college. Back in around 2010. Slow metal. But interesting. I remember they sung in English and Faroese. I loved hearing Faroese, but understandably understood little.

        Thyrfing is probably one of my favourite Norse themed bands. I believe they were Swedish. Suidakra, who does a marvelous album Crogacht is good.

        ‘ayuh’ I feel in a similar way. Also in regard to Corneliu Codreanu, Romania is just too strange.

        I really want to like Tyr, but they need at least one of three things to get me on board:
        1 play more epic
        2 play faster
        3 play more aggresive

        Thyrfing is more me, just from listing to one song. Thanks for the tip.

    Greek is not European, Latvia would be more vastly European than Greek (I know Viking will disagree with me here) Latvians were being slowly ethnically & culturally Germanized since the late Middle Ages (1500s) not unlike within the Carpathians, which is why many Germans wanted very badly to integrate Latvia into the Lebensraum, it was not simply a political maneuver.

    I cannot speak on behalf of many other peoples.

    Latvian is a Baltic distinction which I should note is not the same as Slavic (Even then not all Slavs are exactly the same either), Balts are their own Ethnic group in itself, one which has been endangered by encroaching Russian Slavs & Mongolic peoples for a long while although there are Balticized Slavs and vice versa Germanized Balts i.e. Prussians, this is no misinformation this is a fact.

    Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr von Braun, Ernst Heinrich Freiherr von Weizsäcke, Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen (These are just a few examples of men from great Prussian Family Lines) some of which can trace part of their German ancestry back to older noble Baltic lines.

    This dynamic of Germanizing non Germans has been exercised since the H.R.E. concluding the Black Death in Europe lead to annexation of lands Eastward which were since mostly depopulated, Austrians did much of the same with Balts and Hungarians for much a time just as Germans did with the Old Prussians (Balts) extending the borders of each respective German Kingdom in turn gaining more Ethnic Germans in the process and breeding out the Non-Germans.

    One cannot cherry-pick “Finno-Ugric” and also ignore Balts, I am here to express hard facts not narratives.

    I only understand fragmented Faroese spoken to me by by fiancee, it is not like Danish or Norwegian but an isolated remnant which has not been influenced by outside factors since the end of Viking age, not unlike how Austrian German language had changed the least compared to within Germany itself since the end of the Holy Roman Empire.

      I do not really disagree, both are very strange. Of cause I don’t know much about either and don’t really find them that interesting. Latvian are properly more ‘grown up’ with their economic.

      “One cannot cherry-pick “Finno-Ugric” and also ignore Balts, I am here to express hard facts not narratives.”

      I am not sure what that means.
      Being on the wrong side of the cold war, still has it’s effect. The Nordic countries has developed a lot in that time. Finland has been part of it, the “Finno-Ugric” Balts has not. A large % of people in the Baltic are Russian Cold War “immigrants”.

      Baltic countries, especially Lithuania are shitholes and the Nordic countries, especially non-Finnish should keep them at distance.

      We have been giving them economic aid, pushed for them to come into Nato and EU, we are their Airforce, etc.. and all of this was/is done in disregard to Russia (which is fine with me).

        Jensen, you’re a Dane and a true ethnic Dane at that, naturally my woman is also a Dane, I am an ethnic North German I would never say anything to slight you personally in that regard, we share history & culture. Added you are intelligent enough to know that when I refer to a group, I am referring to a very specific ethnic group and not a National group, when I refer to 𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒗𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒔” and “𝑩𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒔” I am referring to them as their own group and not to Russified Balts.

        “𝑳𝒂𝒕𝒗𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒔 𝒆𝒕𝒉𝒏𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒂 𝑩𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒊𝒄 𝒅𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏”, no different than Finns they share the same genetic roots and for the longest time they were on the way to becoming completely German, “Baltic” is not a lowly term like a Pole/Slovak or Russian, in many regards some Baltic peoples did become fully German. East Germans (Prussians) carry over Baltic lineage, vice versa with Northwestern Germans. Cities such as Hambürg (My home) & neighboring Lübeck both part of the Hanseatic league carry over Wendish (Baltic Heritage).

        (I am aware this is German MSM news, but it is at least 90% accurate sans caveat mentioned of it “being necessary to liberate Germany from National Socialism”).

        I lost a lot of my own family during WWII and those who survived suffered horribly thereafter the stories still make my heart fall heavy, Natassja also lost family in that war, her Grandparents were forced to flee Königsberg, Prussia (Today Kaliningrad, Russia) at the end of that war.
        Our family suffered immensely at the hands of the allies (Primarily America, Great Britain & Soviet Russia).

        Hence I am naturally inclined to side with people who fought loyally on OUR side who also suffered at the hands of the ALL-LIES, I would sooner side with an ethnic Latvian than an American or Brit who descends from those who have the blood of my family on their hands, do not forget Jensen that America still has occupational military forces in Germany!

        As a German I value loyalty above all else and Americans are not loyal. Likewise, a Russian, Pole, Slovak or Mongol ~ I do not forgive either.

        The Cold War happened to Germany too, there was not a better side to be on, it would be like choosing between Malignant Bone Cancer or AIDs at gunpoint, Latvians were force “Russified” not unlike what happened to Slovenians and Croatians let alone East Berliners.

        F.Y.I. I do not base my perspectives and bias upon N.A.T.O. jurisdiction or something as shallow as economics, I am not like one of those Americans who cry over a lack of western capita overseas nor am I a citizen of the states who is proud of American military/political power over Europe, I detest it in fact.

        If you have an indiscriminate hatred for all Slavs & Balts that is fine, I am not going to change your views however, bitte do not spread misinformation simply because of your grudges.

        Seax is just a sycophant, look how fast he changed his opinion just to appease you. (I am not here to appease you nor anyone, but I values you as a Dane a fellow North Germanic brother and I respect your sensibilities as such).

        Seax, just wants validation from you because you’re completely European therefore it legitimizes His Americana upon equal footing but in reality he only wants to LARP kinship with you on the internet with something as superficial as metal bands, normie pop, random google facts & memes, you know full well Pan-Europeanism under the broad umbrella of “White Nationalism” is not a good thing, he does not share the same values as we do.

        Ultimately as much as an American would claim interest in Denmark it is not their wish to become like Denmark but for Denmark and all Danes to become like Americans (I hope you realize what is happening right now).

      Have you noticed, that a lot of words in Danish sounds similar to the same word in German or English?

      • ᛋᛉᚺᛟᚾ · August 10, 2020

        Yes and No, modern English a bastard-tongue of distant Germanic origin, Old-English which is very different from modern English would have been closer to Frisian as is Dutch which is somewhat intelligible to me as a North German speaker considering that Danish, Dutch & Frisian are our primary linguistical influences over the Latin (Romance) heavy south.

        As for German I will give you few random examples considering that German is not the same across the board.

        “Der Hackepeter” or simply just “Hackfleisch” = ground/minced meat (Northern German)

        “Pastetenfüllung” = ground/minced meat (Southern German)

        Both have the same meaning the primary difference being within regional usage, I mince my meat and onions I don’t mince my words.

        Another example and this one happens between Natassja and I quite often

        Schloss Nordkirchen (Castle Northchurch)

        Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cake)

        You see the confusion now? “Kirch” in Northern Germany has the exact same pronunciation as “Kirsch” in Southern Germany (Austria included). “Kirsch” Means Cherry Liquor “Torte” means specifically a layer cake whereas a simple “cake” is “Küchen” i.e. Pfannküchen (Pancake) and this where it gets confusing again in Southern Germany namely Bavaria & Austria “Küchen” means “Kitchen” whereas in Northern Germany “Koch” means “Kitchen” which is also synonymous for the word “Cook” i.e. someone who prepares food and can be used as “Kochkünste” (Cooking Arts ~ Cullinary Arts).

        This is something Americans especially do not realize – NOT ALL GERMAN IS THE SAME – Even then German language is very context intensive and tone heavy unlike standard American English.

        Basically calling your association 𝐌ä𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐛𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞 as an American organization is incredibly void of context, in the German use of the word it would be simply “Men’s League” But of what? it would be like naming a group “Association” and since men are involved sans additional contextual cues, such would automatically be construed to be a “Free-Masonic Lodge” in Germany.

        It is a German word after all and should be interpreted properly as such!

        This would be exactly as if I decided to name 𝕺𝖉𝖆𝖑𝖌𝖗𝖚𝖕𝖕𝖊 – 𝖂𝖊𝖘𝖙𝖊𝖓 “𝑫𝒂𝒔 𝑯𝒆𝒊𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒃𝒖𝒏𝒅” without specification “to which homeland am I referring to” and just leave it at that floating without context.
        Leave Germans words out of White-Nationalism! If 𝐏𝐑𝐎-𝐆𝐄𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐈𝐒𝐌 is not your primary objective! It would be just like a Frenchmen’s organization comprised exclusively of Southern Greeks who don’t even speak the language. – 𝐄𝐍𝐃-𝐑𝐀𝐍𝐓.

        Remember my post: HARTKUNST vs KUNSTMORD (ARTDEATH), the latter part was done deliberately in Dutch/Danish rather than German: “Todes der Kunst” (Death of Art).

        My German in written format is still not perfect it was never a curriculum reinforced in me growing up in the states post my early youth in Hambürg, however spoken German was reinforced at home fortunate enough for me, oftentimes Natassja and I banter back and forth then laugh at each other, Americans do not realize how different Germans regional dialects are because to them all German sounds the same when in reality North German Television commercials must re-dubbed in Southern Germany i.e. Austria because they do not entirely grasp the message.

        𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐮𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐤.

        North German is described as very tonally harsh & quick in speech overall, exceedingly difficult to pick up by newcomers. (An Impatient German spoken unintentionally angrily punching a clock at Der Stahlhof before downing very intimidating Schwarzbier in a single sitting).

        South German is described as Melodic with sudden pauses between words, somewhat more approachable to those unfamiliar with German language. (A Relaxed German spoken care-free whilst sipping wine after a long day restoring statues of the Hapsburg Dynasty).

        I’ll give you another example remember this?

        (Track set to Der Ring des Nibelungen ~ Film).

        Der Tanz des Tatzelwurm by Sturmpercht? (They are Austrian) You made note that they sounded “funny” and I made note it was difficult to translate just by ear alone which assumed would be because they are Southern Germans, well I ran it by Natassja who only really grasps Austrian German, she uttered “it’s Village Austrian, spoke by Southern German Peasants, not even Austrian spoken in the cities”.

        Essentially the band Sturmpercht sings in what we North Germans would call “Osterbauer” which translates literally to “Austrian Farmer” depending upon tone & context can be used in the pejorative sense.

        So the answer is more complex than simple black & white, yes there are traces which are similar but all around still very different.

        “Guten Mörgen” is the standard (Good Morning) but in many parts of Northern Germany the typical Good Morning is “Moin” which apparently is a Dutch influence.

        Yes, within Germany there three main dialects (not counting lesser town/village dialects).

        Plattdeutsch (What I was taught by my father in spoken form – Northern/Lower German).

        Oberdeutsch (What Natassja was taught by her father both written & spoken Southern/High German).

        Hochdeutsch (What Berliners speak & the BRD would like all Germans to speak as standard German).

        As well there are variances spoken in other German speaking countries i.e. Austria & Switzerland.

        As for Danish and German, it would be more similar in the Northern states i.e. Lower Saxony & Mecklenburg-Vorpommern than elsewhere.

        Jensen, we were here together from the beginning with Varg when he began to lose his way and we as men tend to say “I am not going to get involved”. Only then later regret not saying anything because maybe we could have changed something. There are so few true European Dissidents left, I simply do not want to see another European brother be steered into the wrong direction.

        Something I have seen with my own eyes and heard with my own ears from “American White Nationalists” is “Yea Denmark is so stupid, they’re Communist because they have healthcare and don’t know what to do with the natural resources of Greenland, Americans should take it from Denmark”.

        This is a common way of thinking among W.N. types.

        You have known me for a while, and you know that I am an INTJ and we don’t feel emotions easily we aren’t passionate about something unless it is important and I don’t voice something unless I feel it is important.

        I’ve even mentioned you to Natassja in many instances and whilst she doesn’t know you she respects you as her Danish brother and feels strongly that we should back each other up, we are far and few in between as it is.

        There are properly a number of reasons for it, but that would only be speculation on my part.

      I tend to view topic likes this under influence of geo-politics and similar influence.
      I know of the German/Teutonic influence (Danish, too) and that Balts are not Judeo-Slavic. We don’t look favorably upon Polacks and Russian even though some of them have been blessed with German/Teutonic influence (you know what I mean).

      I agree about loyalty, but I don’t believe that everybody like Bosnians, Kosaks, Arabs, Africans, Asians, etc. was fighting for the Germanic cause. Many of the Balts was properly fighting for their own interest.
      As did the Finns and later Finland was fighting against Germany.

      I often use a little humor and irony when I refere to the Denmark-Germany relation doing WWII. Because Denmark was free-riding on Germany without putting Denmark at stake. We would be happy to settle the East with Germany, but we did not want any part of the trouble getting it.
      Cowards? Parasites? Pragmatic? That is up to you. Remember, things are usually not black or white.

      I am not really interested in Finland, either. But, as I wrote they have been with us for some time and that is properly best, especially for Finland. I would be fine with them turning their back on us and joining the Baltic countries in some sort of North-East union.

      We both have sympathy with Whites in South Africa, South Africa fought with the Anglo-Franco-Judeo-Slavic side in both WWI and WWII.

      “F.Y.I. I do not base my perspectives and bias upon N.A.T.O. jurisdiction or something as shallow as economics, I am not like one of those Americans who cry over a lack of western capita overseas nor am I a citizen of the states who is proud of American military/political power over Europe, I detest it in fact.”

      Me too, when I wrote “right side” I was mostly thinking of them being excluded from us and missing out on the development we had. You could for example travel freely between the Nordic countries since the 1960 I believe, long before in happened with the EU.
      I like the CIA definition, not because I like CIA. But because, 5 is enough as Nordic countries. And the 3 brothers as the Scandinavian countries.
      There have been talks mostly from Finland and Sweden to include at least Estonia as a Nordic country, I think that is stupid, we already have Finland (who speak a very strange non-Germanic language, etc.).

      Eastern Europe has always been Eastern Europe in my lifetime, I don’t care if EU, NATO, FN and so on claims Poland is a central European country. But I can still post about it and point out their mistake.

      The reason I wrote about Russian immigration is, as we open up to the Balts, we open up to Russia.

      “If you have an indiscriminate hatred for all Slavs & Balts that is fine, I am not going to change your views however, bitte do not spread misinformation simply because of your grudges.”

      I am not sure if I hate anybody, I dislike Slavs because of their Junkie-mentality.
      I wrote in regards to Balts:

      “I do not really disagree, both are very strange. Of cause I don’t know much about either and don’t really find them that interesting. Latvian are properly more ‘grown up’ with their economic.”

      and

      “Being on the wrong side of the cold war, still has it’s effect. The Nordic countries has developed a lot in that time. Finland has been part of it, the “Finno-Ugric” Balts has not. A large % of people in the Baltic are Russian Cold War “immigrants”.

      Baltic countries, especially Lithuania are shitholes and the Nordic countries, especially non-Finnish should keep them at distance.

      We have been giving them economic aid, pushed for them to come into Nato and EU, we are their Airforce, etc.. and all of this was/is done in disregard to Russia (which is fine with me).”

      I have shown immigration stats and many examples of Lithuania crime in Denmark.

      Baltic Air Policing
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltic_Air_Policing

      “For historical and political reasons, the three Baltic states – Lithuania, Latvia and
      Estonia – are desperate to join the Alliance and receive the formal security guarantees under
      Article V that they feel they need to withstand future Russian threats. The problem, however,
      is that Russia has made it clear that NATO membership – particularly for Latvia and Estonia
      with their large Russian minorities – would be viewed as a significant threat to Russian
      national security. This is a classic example of a ‘security dilemma’ – a improvement for the
      security of one state (or in this case three), sought for purely defensive purposes, is seen (rightly or wrongly) as a threat to the vital interests of a neighbouring state (in this case
      Russia). ”
      Page 5 https://www.nato.int/acad/fellow/98-00/hyde.pdf

      “On the one hand, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are currently in many respects under
      the tutelage of West European governments – led by the Nordic ones – which have
      been concerned to integrate them into the West.”
      Page 10 https://www.iss.europa.eu/sites/default/files/EUISSFiles/cp033e.pdf

      This is a journey for all of us, even you. We form our views as we travel along the path of improvement.
      ‘Eastern Europe is our Mexico!’ and ‘Germanic Unity’ is like the final ‘red pill’. It takes time for people to develope. That goes for all of us.

        Jensen, I did not ask for statistics in the above comment, those links were completely irrelevant to my comment! Do you think I am like every other American you encounter that can be so easily shut down if you throw some stats at me, I know my facts about Europe, do not forget I have family in Europe as well I am not someone who never left North America.

        Not to mention Denmark when compared next to the U.S. is a veritable “Shangri la”. Whilst, you indeed have a staggering Polish problem but even then, it is a drop in the bucket to what other countries have to contend with. Additionally, you barely have any Baltic peoples to even merit trouble! You did not get your stats from walking around Denmark in person you simply quoted different facts based upon dubious online sources, hence merits extraordinarily little to no substance.

        I have family (Natassja’s family) in Denmark so I am not in the dark about Polish migrants, the same Poles don’t live off the fat of the land so to speak in Denmark, they do menial work not unlike Mexicans do in the U.S. Forgive me for asking what exactly is your grievance with Poles? My grievance with them is entrenched within personal stakes because it involves family (WWII) along the front lines of my German Heritage, but clearly that is not your case considering that authentic German plight does not resonate with you.

        Tell me the truth Jensen, how many times do you go on a walk and run into a Latvian in Denmark?

        Additionally, I sent you the 𝕳𝖆𝖒𝖇ü𝖗𝖌 video because I tried to draw a common connection with you, if you had family in that specific period you would have been affected, and look how “indifferently” you responded which in fact proves to me you have no connection to those events which probably means your family did not fight on the right side of that war, because you would have answered me very differently. Haven’t you heard similar stories from your own grandparents?! (They’re gut wrenching) how can you not be affected by them!

        I am forced to ask now, who I am dealing with here, when I make videos about Prussia I am not doing it for myself, I make those videos as an ode to my Grandparents and my family who lost their lives in that war, our Greatest Generation soon to be gone completely if they aren’t already passed. Vice versa for when I write, I back it up with perspectives of people who lived in that period.

        When I called you my brother, I don’t take it lightly, I am an 𝐈𝐍𝐓𝐉 I don’t express emotions easily, I called you a brother because I value you as a fellow person of North Germanic stock. I did not offer Seax brotherhood guess why? Because he is just another clueless American with no real connection who spews misinformation. Now … I feel foolish because it is clear you do not share the same values nor experiences see how nonchalantly you uttered, “𝑫𝒆𝒏𝒎𝒂𝒓𝒌 𝒘𝒂𝒔 𝑹𝒊𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑮𝒆𝒓𝒎𝒂𝒏𝒚 — 𝒄𝒐𝒘𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒔, 𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒂𝒔𝒊𝒕𝒆𝒔, 𝒑𝒓𝒂𝒈𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒔?”.

        You keep mentioning “𝑱𝒖𝒅𝒆𝒐-𝑺𝒍𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒄” then why would you be afraid of angering Russia? You realize how infuriated I was when you essentially said you don’t to rock the boat because it will anger Russia.

        Nothing you say invokes Germanic pride, it is lukewarm it does not provoke emotion or deep thought there is no depth here just memes … and statistics charts. If someone sat down with me in the flesh, I could have a passionate discussion about all the topics on my blog, I don’t need to do a google search in advance to speak about the matters important to me.

        Had all of Scandinavia been united with Adolf Hitler during WWII the outcome would have been different today, I never mislead people here my blog has always been overtly Pro-Germanic and clearly that resonates with you, so is it all a LARP Jensen? Considering that you expressed indifference.

        let us not forget nearly three years ago when the gods blessed me with a woman it is almost like you resented it, you became silent around that time, not to mention you disappeared on me before without a reason in fact. You did not even give me a reason or a goodbye, this was literally right after my father died, I even posted on the day my father died you did not even utter a word.

        You know I started to put pictures of my home on my blog and I post homesteader families, because such reflects the future I want for myself, whenever I try to scrape past your moniker all I find are memes and google found answers.

        Let us not forget who you actively promote ~ 𝐔𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐧!

        “𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐲 𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐫” has more toys and movie posters in his “den” than my five-year-old nephew, where are all his grown man belongings? He calls women foul names, and so what if they are leftists, in principle they are still of his blood in most cases what kind of man refers to a woman in the pejorative and lives a normal life? Men like this die a sad virgin surrounded by life sized plastic sex dolls and they have no one to blame but themselves.

        “𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐖𝐨𝐞𝐬” An overweight, unkempt, slovenly individual who looks like a drug junkie, who once was a far-left male feminist in his university years & active homosexual. He speaks a lot of hot air about Traditionalism, about family about children, where is his stake in all of this? He speaks down upon childless couples; he is a single, overweight childless man child who drinks coca cola, vapes all day long and eats Indian curry takeout whilst living in his father’s house!

        “𝐀𝐝𝐚𝐦 𝐍𝐨 𝐄𝐯𝐞” is a MGTOW who promotes a community of single, bitter losers who self-identify as INCELs which is a pejorative term, an ugly label utilized by ugly people, if you promote that then I question you!

        “𝟒-𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧” A forum for losers by losers, they invest all their energy and hours of effort to trolling and making some leftists unhappy, but the end-goal is shallow because meanwhile Statues of Otto Von Bismarck get defaced and Neo-Communists still take to the streets in solidarity, a unity the Dissident-right sadly lacks.

        I am sorry Jensen if find this all this beneath me, call me a snob but this is exactly what Nietzsche’s Übermensch would have done. No one stands up for what is righteous anymore.

        Why are your primary online peers always American and not Danish for that matter?

        Have you ever physically left Denmark?

        Do you have a woman?

        I just wanted to clarify my vitriol wasn’t against all Danes, naturally.

        Now that I’ve made my position clear on what I meant in regards to Denmark, I believe it is time for me to end this here, as I find no merit in redundancy. “Wer zuletzt lacht, lacht am besten” (“He who laughs last, laughs longest”; Minor successes or failures along the way are of no significance- the person who is ultimately triumphant is the only true winner). In plain English “You are either with me or against me”; A Motto I wish my Kin had followed in WW2.

      No, you did not ask me for stastics. You implied that my views are formed by “indiscriminate hatred”, “grudges” and that I “spread misinformation”.

      “Do you think I am like every other American you encounter that can be so easily shut down if you throw some stats at me, I know my facts about Europe, do not forget I have family in Europe as well I am not someone who never left North America.”

      I don’t understand why you would think, like that.

      We have chatted about Poles before. One of many reasons is, it’s the country where most immigrants come from and it have pretty much happened since we open our borders to them, as the joined EU.
      And info on the East, is missing as a “White Nationalist” topic.

      You are welcome to believe “clearly that is not your case considering that authentic German plight does not resonate with you.”

      “Tell me the truth Jensen, how many times do you go on a walk and run into a Latvian in Denmark?”

      It’s hard to tell, why?

      Cowards? Parasites? Pragmatic? That is up to you. Remember, things are usually not black or white.

      Why are you taken it out of context? I wrote it, as an answer and a question to what you wrote:

      “Hence I am naturally inclined to side with people who fought loyally on OUR side who also suffered at the hands of the ALL-LIES, I would sooner side with an ethnic Latvian than an American or Brit who descends from those who have the blood of my family on their hands, do not forget Jensen that America still has occupational military forces in Germany!

      As a German I value loyalty above all else and Americans are not loyal. Likewise, a Russian, Pole, Slovak or Mongol ~ I do not forgive either.”

      “You keep mentioning “𝑱𝒖𝒅𝒆𝒐-𝑺𝒍𝒂𝒗𝒊𝒄” then why would you be afraid of angering Russia? You realize how infuriated I was when you essentially said you don’t to rock the boat because it will anger Russia.”

      When did I write that??????

      I remember writing:

      “We have been giving them economic aid, pushed for them to come into Nato and EU, we are their Airforce, etc.. and all of this was/is done in disregard to Russia (which is fine with me).”

      WHICH IS FINE WITH ME!!!!!

      In other words, them acting in disregard to Russia was fine with me!

      Well, you are just awesome. I try to share information and sources.

      I agree, but Scandinavia did what they did.
      I never mislead people!
      I never really saw your blog as “overtly Pro-Germanic”. Pro-Germanic, maybe.

      “Considering that you expressed indifference.”

      As you see it. There are only 24 hours in a day, here!

      “let us not forget nearly three years ago when the gods blessed me with a woman it is almost like you resented it, you became silent around that time, not to mention you disappeared on me before without a reason in fact.

      Ha, no! You went silent on me. And came back years later with a story about FBI. I am not going to re-write history for you!

      “You know I started to put pictures of my home on my blog and I post homesteader families, because such reflects the future I want for myself, whenever I try to scrape past your moniker all I find are memes and google found answers.”

      You are properly right, but that was not how you used to view him. As far as I know, he is finished.

      “𝐀𝐝𝐚𝐦 𝐍𝐨 𝐄𝐯𝐞”
      You are properly right, you seems to know a lot more about him, too. I just found that video, I never heard of him before.

      “𝟒-𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧”
      You are properly right, I have only been there a cuple of times.

      I link to Daily Mail, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, BBC and many more. I don’t promote them either. And I have always done that, maybe you forgot.

      “I am sorry Jensen if find this all this beneath me, call me a snob but this is exactly what Nietzsche’s Übermensch would have done. No one stands up for what is righteous anymore.”

      I have never read “Nietzsche’s Übermensch”

      “Why are your primary online peers always American and not Danish for that matter?”

      You think, that. I am on a number of other platforms. Trying to do my part.

      “Have you ever physically left Denmark?”

      Yes, which I have told you about before.

      “Do you have a woman?”

      Yes.

      “Bitte, unless I am totally wrong about you here, I don’t think there is much left to be said.”
