If you wanted to insult a man in pre-Christian Norse culture, you called him weak, compared him to a woman or to a slave. Shame was about loss of will and agency. It was an honor-based collectivist culture. At least in that respect, it was similar to Southern culture.
Jackson Crawford briefly laughs at the thought of comparing Norse culture to modern progressive liberal culture. “I don’t even know what to call it” is an appropriate response. What can you compare it to? Is there any precedent for the degenerate culture that we have today? Has any culture in history ever been so overwhelmed by self hatred and enthusiastically heaped up its own funeral pyre and celebrated its own demise and replacement?
Contrast the Viking Age with our own times. In those days, Britain was Christian and the English and the Scots fought back against the Norse. Both England and Scotland were created in the process of fighting off the Vikings. Norway and Denmark became unified Christian kingdoms. The Northern Crusades were later waged against the Finns and Balts. Otto the Great defeated the Magyars at the Battle of Lechfeld. The Hungarians converted to Christianity. It took the Spanish centuries to reconquer Iberia from the Muslims and to expel them. Would any of this have ever happened if they had just rolled over and died like the modern liberal West?
