That’s pretty interesting. Unlike Moynihan’s argument that proximity to Canada is what makes for good schools, it may not just be a coincidence either. It fits in pretty well with the Atlantean/Hyperborean distinction, which seems to be based on a real phenomenon.

Regarding this skeleton disrupting the Narrative, nothing like that will happen. Inconvenient facts do not disrupt Narratives.

Atlantean/Hyperborean, G ?

It’s a theory that a fundamental fact of geopolitics is that major powers tend to be either on the peripheries of the system, sea-based, naval, commercial, cosmopolitan, maybe more focused on liberty and law, and with a “balance of power” strategy, or geographically more central, army based, agricultural, volkish, dirigiste, and communitarian, with a “take over” strategy. In modern times, the classic Atlantean powers were the English and then us (maybe the Dutch before the English), while the Hyperborean powers were the French, then the Germans, then the Russians. I tend to think there’s something to it, though how much is hard to say.
