I would like to add that at the start of the Viking Age, there was a common culture shared by the various peoples of Scandinavia. The archeological record shows us a cultural consistency between settlements in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Among these was Gotland, which as you said is not Sweden, but it did in the 8th century fit the common mold. From there, exiles formed the Grobin colony (in modern day Latvia), and eventually the Ladoga colony, all of which, from an archeological standpoint, can be described as Norse. These, I think, are the main evidences we have to support that the Rus were Norse.
Your post is a psychological rant. You might as well say all things are meaningless! I wrote extesively way above, if you scroll up a few months, about a person who is being a deliberate “jerk”: one who instigates looking for trouble, ., a racist cop who pulls you over for no legit reason and dreams of “finding something” to bust the driver. Another example would be the jerk drill Sergeant who walks around dorms with white gloves looking to find dust. The Bible indicates Satan seeks trouble acting as a lion roaming around seeking whom he may devour. I have given a few examples of what you ar doing. You make no sense saying there is no “right” or “wrong”, no “true claims” or “false claims” and then you disagree with me; and then say there is no objectivity. I mentioned previously on more than one instance you destroy your own position by acting against it. Psychology has done a number on your thinking — and not in a good way.
