Archaeologist here

I absolutely cannot understand or believe how fucking surreal the USA is. When you look at all the various cultures, nations and ethnicities throughout the past, there is nothing that comes close to the total disconnect that is the USA. Their entire set of values, political, social, economic, religious is just so off from the human norm that is observed in the rest of the world and throughout history.

It's just surreal. In general, especially in the West, there is a big societal disconnect from the biological reality of human psychology, social needs, behaviour, nutritional needs, etc. But in America that disconnect is just so unbelievably huge. I can't think of a single more dysfunctional society that hinges on surreal perceptions of human behaviour and bodily functioning, that includes the Middle Ages, the Romans, Aztecs, Neolithic societies in Mesopotamia, even modern fucking China (although it does come somewhat close) or North Korea, you name it.

There is plenty of weird and borderline surreal shit out there, but nothing that is just so off on the entire spectrum of daily life, ranging from how people interact with one another, nutrition, economic systems, values, everything.

What is it about the USA that has let that nation be shaped by the most absurd ideologies and set of surreal cultural traits?

>the Vikings called it Greenland to attract settlers there
Is this a meme? How would the people who go there react when they discover it's not actually filled with pastures and forests?

>In the Germanic economy, slaves performed both domestic work and farm labor.
>According to Tacitus, Germanic peoples treated slaves more mildly than contemporary peoples.
>Although the master had complete power of life and death over his slave, mistreatment of slaves is not recorded in early Germanic literature.
>In the Icelandic sagas, the children of slaves and masters are often mentioned as playing with each other.
>The manumission (freeing) of slaves among Germanic peoples was common, just as it was among the Romans. Owen notes that the life of a Germanic slave was "infinitely better than on the industrialized farms of Italy."
