The battle of the runes : A discussion analysis of the public debate regarding the Tiwaz rune and the Helm of Awe (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is a discussion analysis of the public debate regarding the Tiwaz rune and the Helm of Awe through the lens of various groups wanting to interpret the symbols differently through their historical usage. Through analyzing how different people argue for the legitimacy of their interpretation through the symbols’ historical usage they were separated into three groups, the critical, the religious and the cultural, all who want their interpretation to be the prevailing one. The critical group argues that the symbols should be seen as Nazi symbols because of how relatively recent the deeds of the Nazis are to today, and they are used as the means to attack modern Nazi groups through this connection. The religious group instead speak for a more ancient Norse interpretation, they argue that it is media itself that makes these symbols into Nazi symbols not the Nazis and that this interpretation is based on historical ignorance. The cultural group uses the symbols because of their connection to the Norse culture and because of an imagined Viking warrior ideal that will motivate in the modern political struggle. In the essay it is made clear by all groups that it is media that has the power in the negotiation regarding the meaning of these symbols today. But they have entirely abandoned them to groups like the Nordic Resistance Movement and The Swedish Party to make their own.
