Vikings and cannibals are the only civilizations that if I were the leader of another civilization, I would have every last one killed. Like not conquer and rule, but literally like genocide.

Well the strongest and smartest of the real vikings gladly forsook the idiotic and chaotic paganism when they learned of Christianity and promptly forced Norway to become a Christian country. The pagans, who were repeatedly defeated were the true scralings and are definitely on par with cannibals and deserve extinction. All these punks today who romanticize the horrible times of vile evil among the vikings are just wimpy losers who read too many comic books and listen to too much of the equivalent of 'rap' in Scandinavia: 'black metal'.

While the vikings were very cool, had a very cool pantheon and mythology and all of that great stuff, I don't think any civilization that depends on the destruction and pillaging of other civilizations to survive should continue existing. They just killed and destroyed.

Well ok.

Britain shouldn't exist, they only got to where they were by raiding and pillaging Africa, Southeast Asia and the West Indies.
The Dutch did the same with Africa
France did it with Africa and West Indies
Spain did it with all of the Americas south of Florida
USA and Canada did it with natives
Natives did it to Settlers
Persia did it to Greece
Greece did it to the area that would become Rome
Rome did it to all surrounding areas up to and including Britain
Moors did it to Spain
Holy Roman Empire did it to ... well, everyone
There is no civilization that didn't raid and/or pillage at some point to get started or show dominance

about every civilization did that. Rome, Celtics, Vikings, British Empire in some ways , Greece, Egypt in the early years , and the Mesopotamia's. though you may not like, many cultures before relied on those tactics of death and destruction to thrive and grow to what we see today

The Norse people were also pretty big on trade and settlement. Saying they only got by through pillaging is like saying the Native Americans just sat around in their huts smoking pipe all day.

That vikings were barbaric savages whose only purpose was to raid, rape, pillage and plunder is a pretty huge misconception brought on by Christian historians throughout the ages. For the last century that misconception has mostly been debunked, but it seems it sticks around for some people.

Vikings were primarily traders, farmers, explorers and travellers. They just happened to be very adept at ship-building and naval practices, so their sea-travels were quite succesful. Vikings did raid along coastlines, yes; that is what they're known for. However, most didn't. Exactly why the vikings raided so much is unclear, but for the most part we can assume that the reasons varied while tradition is what kept the practice in place. One theory is that the tradition began because when pagan vikings sailed east and south to trade, they were refused by Christian merchants who believed that it would be morally wrong to conduct trade with pagans. In fact, the main peoples who were willing to trade with northmen were Byzantines, Arabs and Persians. Another theory is that with the terrain and climate of Scandinavia, there was little room and little time over the year to build and expand with the day's knowledge and technology (bear in mind that this was way before effective agricultural practices were brought north by Christian missionaries), so the northmen instead took to travelling and raiding both to accumulate wealth and to gather resources and goods both to trade and to use simply in order to ascertain the survival of their people.

What's important to remember is that the vikings were no worse than most others at the time, nor several hundred years later. Other pagan peoples, as well as Catholics, Muslims and the Orthodox, also raided and murdered and raped when they could. The difference when it comes to vikings is that they were very good at seafaring and could thus raid efficiently. If other peoples had the same, they would undoubtedly have raided just as much.

Also it is a misconception that Vikings rampantly raped women whenever they could. Vikings actually placed high value on women, and treated them better than most other civilizations at the time. Women were actually allowed to divorce, and there are many places still today that don't allow that. The greatest Viking merchants were women, and of the very few intricate Viking burial tombs ever uncovered, I believe all of them housed women. When villages were raided, the vikings usually gave the survivors (women, children, and those who did not fight) the option to integrate into the tribe or be sold as slaves. And the term rape actually derives from a latin word pronounced rap-eh, and it meant to steal. In Old English it would often be said that a man 'raped a girl of her virginity', so when people described vikings as rapers (stealers in their mind) confusion arose leading people to believe they commonly sexually assaulted women.

Maybe not, but then again vikings are not nearly as important historically as, say, the Romans or Charlemagne were, so it makes sense that little is taught about them in schools that are far from Scandinavia. It's just a shame, I think, because it's easy to think of pagan cultures as savage and barbaric simply because that's the view Christian nations had of them for over a thousand years, even when that was far from the truth. That's not to say the vikings weren't violent; they really, really were. But there was a lot more to them than bloodthirst and greed.

Hah, yeah. Thing is, when the purpose of viking voyages was raiding, that order of business was very much the case. It's just that raiding wasn't always the goal. Anyway, no harm done, I'm just glad you're more open minded than people tend to be when their opinion is countered!

there are plenty of jokes about scandinavians climate and how much cold we resist, and to some extend are true
but if it was that cold would we really have the ammount of population we got ?
no, in fact the gulf stream runs up to "östersjön" the sea between sweden and finland
and in general new york city have colder winter than our capital (and most people live in it or south of it)
