Germany is Germany.I guess that leaves us at an impasse, then. I'm only three generations removed from Germany, but my exposure to your ancestral culture has been sorely limited, self-directed, and filtered through multiple non-ancestral worldviews before it could reach me. But to me it is sacred, it is vital to my senses of self and community.
I won't scold you again, and I apologize for mistaking you for someone with no stake in our argument.
Germany is a mixture of many ethnic groups: Celtic, Saxon, Slavic, and apparently Nordwest Block. Germans are their own unique, melting pot, identity.
Scandinavians have never been Germans.
Nordic Countries have cultures that are unique to Nordic Countries.
