Nostalgic Barbarianism
By US Norseman

Surrounded by dark degeneracy on all sides, one is naturally nostalgic for the good things of the barbarian past that have been lost, such as mass battles where the winner took all:

“Some 2,000 years ago, a ragtag troop of about 400 Germanic tribesmen marched into battle against a mysterious adversary in Denmark, and they were slaughtered to the last man.

Or at least that's the story their bones tell. Exhumed from Alken Enge — a peat bog in Denmark's Illerup River Valley — between 2009 and 2014, nearly 2,100 bones belonging to the dead fighters have given archaeologists a rare window into the post-battle rituals of Europe's so-called "barbarian" tribes during the height of the Roman Empire. In a new study published online May 21 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark dug into the bloody details.

"The ferocity of the Germanic tribes and peoples and their extremely violent and ritualized behavior in the aftermath of warfare became a trope in the Roman accounts of their barbaric northern neighbors," the authors wrote in the new study. Despite these historical accounts, little evidence of these practices has ever been discovered in archaeological finds — until now.”

For the Germanic/Nordic/Nordish peoples, it has been a long slide downhill since those times. Technological civilization has been but a blip up, on the heart monitor down, but it too is disintegrating as a people sink slowly into the mud.

Hopefully, the curse of civilization will end with The Final Crash. Bring it on, oh one-eyed God:

Born in an age when blood and steel ruled the earth,

The riders of doom were barbarian warriors

With ruthless hearts as cold as the ice

That cracked beneath the hoofs of the beasts they rode.

They unleashed a veritable hell on earth,

Lashing out with bottomless contempt

For the over-civilized peoples

Who feared the wild world beyond the walls of their cities.

Power ruled their domain, and power lived,

And took form in the steel that they wielded;

Steel that hacked to death weaklings and cowards,

Steel that earned them the spoils of war,

Steel that proclaimed the highest law of nature:

Might is right!

And woe to the vanquished!

In life, the conqueror takes all!

The Nordic peoples are under the sway of a hostile ruling clique.
