Law of Jante


#1

Pal of mine who’s a scandi just brought this to my attention - kind of bonkers. It was because we were discussing reasons why self-promotion for their business is hard for them to write down.

Sounds kind of like a disser commandment list tbf


#2

Don’t agree with that, tbh. DiS is full of humblebragging.


#3

that’s true. DiS is like pretending to be like that while bigging itself


#4

I find the Jante laws simulataneously fascinating and weird. it’s surprising how prevalent the attitudes they profess actually are too (a few notable exceptions aside eg Bjarke Ingels).
this is an interesting read about some of the other quirks of scandi folk

's kind of the (other) dark side of socialism, that mindset.

and thanks for this this looks fucking cool and i might actually buy it
