WE ARE Norðmenn
WE ARE NORSEMEN
We are defined by innate and natural biological traits and characteristics essential to the very survival of our species, and based on hundreds of millions of years of evolution.
Our fair skin has allowed us to thrive in the winter darkness of the north and our exceptional fitness, stoicism, and resilience to settle the harshest environments on earth. We have built western civilization with our genes, blood and sweat.
We celebrate our ancestral primal, tribal and warrior nature, and we foster our Óðr through channelled aggression and sexuality outside of modern societal as well as abrahamic constructs. We protect our lands, our resources, our culture, and our own, against all threats.
We embrace equality of opportunity, competition, as well as natural selection, and we welcome as our brothers, through life and beyond, all those men who share our identity and ethos.
We are the sacred essence of life and we perpetuate mankind complemented by women whose essential and primary nurturing role has been defined by nature from times immemorial.

BEING A MAN
What makes a man: The core traits and characteristics
To the Spartans, it was all about ἀρετή (arete: competence together with character), ἀνδραγαθία (andragathía: manly virtue), Καρτερία (kartería: endurance), and ἐγκράτεια (enkrateia: self-control). To the Vikings, it relates to mannskarpr (masculinity), styrkr (fitness/strength), þrekr (fortitude), and Óðr expression.
All in all, pretty abstract concepts. So, what does all this mean in practical terms?
