The World War II debate continues to rage in the comments.
It seems like everyone has a strong opinion on the subject. I’ve always hated the World Wars and the 20th century. Liberalism won World War II and the end of that conflict represents the beginning of our own era in which “racism” and “anti-Semitism” and nationalism have been pathologized while commerce has been put up on a pedestal above everything else in life. The postwar era has been a long process of weakening, degeneration and repression of strong national identities and the replacement of the peoples of the West.
Lately, I have grown interested in taking a look back at the origins of England and Anglo-Saxon identity, which are the centuries between The Venerable Bede in the early 8th century and the Norman Conquest of 1066 when the Vikings invaded Britain and Ireland and “England” was created in the process of the reconquest and Christianization of the Danelaw by the West Saxons. “England” was part of a greater Scandinavian world for centuries. The same was true of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Normandy which were also settled by the Vikings.
It is Christmas Eve and I am just going to chill and watch a few more documentaries about the Viking World which used to stretch from Vinland in North America to Kievan Rus in Russia and Ukraine. The Vikings left a massive imprint on Northern Europe because their raids went on for centuries. Eventually, the Norse were converted to Christianity and Northern Europe calmed down, but not before spreading out and colonizing the entire region.
Note: There was no such thing as Muh White Brothers in this era. Liberalism didn’t exist at the time either. England as a nation was formed in this era though.
