This is perhaps the most thorough example of a government erasing the recorded history of its own people in recorded history.
The Swedish government is looking into the possibility of forbidding the use of Norse runes, local media has reported, amid concerns that the ancient symbols have been misappropriated by neo-Nazi groups.
Justice Minister Morgan Johansson is currently investigating whether or not runes should be banned in Sweden as a way to deter hate groups, a Swedish website Samhällsnytt reported. His is expected to make a recommendation on the matter by the end of May.
If Johannsson decides to move forward with legislation prohibiting the runes, the ban could potentially encompass all Norse symbols, imagery, and traditional jewelry.
Rumor is that they’ll also make having the first three seasons of Vikings (before it got intolerably PC) on your hard drive fetch you a life sentence.
There’s too much ancient “Nazi” Scandinavian imagery in it.
All films that depict the Vikings should be banned as well.
Especially the ones that the Nazi government of Vladimir Putin makes.
If this was a move to ban all neo-pagans, I think it will be successful. Take away the runes and the hammers and the jewelry and you will completely destroy that scene.
Furthermore, a lot of people are going to find out that their favorite MMORPG is going to be banned in Sweden as well.
Will they ban the worship of Talos?
Perhaps the Swedes will finally wake up to the secret Thalmor Occupation Government in their country and rise up in rebellion, demanding that Talos worship be allowed again and that Skyrim be returned to the Nords!
Of course, they won’t ban sand runes, will they?
Only snow runes… for some reason.
