      Yeah, I should have made more tags from the beginning. All the sudden it feels too late. That is why I don’t have an American/USA tag, either.

        Touché. I get why USA gets no tag, we’re not a Viking Country. But Iceland, man, always thought it would be cool to visit, alongside the rest of the Nordic Countries.

        Yeah, me too.

        The tags are related to this blog. If I make an Iceland tag, now. It starts now and will not include other Iceland post made before.
        That’s what I ment by “too late”.

        There are a few things like that, that I wish I knew to begin with.

    Compare them to Russia. 🙂

    “In contrast to other peoples, the Russian people was not able to create its own state. For that to happen, it has to invite in outsiders and allow them to restore order. The ancient Russian faiths were so primitive that one of these outsiders, Prince Vladimir, had to adopt the Greek Orthodox faith.
    “But even the alien state and the great faith were not sufficient in order to withstand the attacks of the Mongols. Only by adopting the tyranny of the horde itself were the Moscow principles able to become strong enough that they could get involved in European politics. But these were only enough for victory over the Livonian order.
    “Then the Russians again had to learn from more developed peoples. Out main teachers were the Swedes, as Peter the Great pointed out, From the Swedes, we took their experience in building an army and the bureaucratic system needed for the resolution of financial tasks. But even then Russians could not become good officers and bureaucrats.
    “Therefore, Peter and then Catherine the Great began to actively appint to leading state and military posts Germans. And in the veins of our rulers, beginning with Catherine flowed mainly German blood. Only with the help of the Germans was Russia able to achieve success in state building. And at the same time, Italian architects build Russians their beautiful capital of St. Petersburg.
    “The Russians were thus not able to generate their own enlightened ideas either for the state or for religion. Our free-thinking intellectuals owed everything to the French. But even with French ideas, they themselves were not able to carry out a revolution equal in importance to the French.
    “The real Russian revolution was carried out by Jews with the help of a small number of Poles and Latvian soldiers. After that, the Georgian Stalin with the help of the Georgian Beria imposed order and won in a great war. But the Russians themselves were so weak that without Stalin, they fell victim to American temptations and lost a great country.
    “Our eternal dependence on foreign values and our striving to borrow everything from abroad long ago angered Russian nationalists who laid at the foundation of their theory of the special path of Russia under the German concept of Sonderweg which was developed already in the 19th century [and not in Russia].
    “A Russian can tell the whole world about having his own culture only by using foreign textbooks.”

      True. Many people like to LARP about Russia and “Based Putin”, they don’t understand the primitive and corrupt nature of the Slavic hive mind.
      Imagine what Russia would look like, if they had as few natural resources as Germany,

        There is a fundamental difference in thinking.

        Many White (German?, Christian ?) always ask how can we help.

        At the other extreme, (((They))) always ask what is there in it for (((us)))?

        I suppose that there is a full spreQA d between the two extremes.

        Yes, I believe so too.
        This also explain why North and West European are thinking alot about the future, nature, animals and pollution. Countries like Russia, China, Nigeria, Poland, Turkey, Mexico, Brazil, Israel, etc. couldn’t care less.

        I don’t know much about Bhutan, but it seem to be everything that China is not.
        It might be a good example of how ethnic groups develope very differentely.
