30 Reasons To Be Grateful And/Or Things To Look For…

Sticky

Since I now live in the English countryside in an old house I’ve had some experiences of power loss, especially during winter. Even though something like that can serve as a reminder of how incredibly lucky we are in this day and age what really shook me was losing our tap water the other day.

That’s when I truly realised how fortunate we are to not only live in our part of the world, but to live now with all of our infrastructure both digitally and “acoustically.”

I can certainly understand why those who govern would regard the loss of this as our greatest vulnerability because once the water is gone what do you do?

You can manage without electricity for some days, it can even have a certain romantic effect, but if your toilet stops working, and you cannot clean yourself nor your tools, well then things are starting to look very grim indeed….

Here is my list over things to be grateful for and things to look for if searching for a good location, etc;

  1. Water in the tap! It certainly tops my list over modern-day luxuries that you do not want to lose.
  2. Hot Water.
  3. Tap Water That Taste Nice. I regard this as a major luxury in this day and age, since much of the water that is out there is “contaminated” to a certain degree. In certain places we’ve lived over the years we only drank bottled water since the quality of what came out of the tap was so bad. Here in England you can in theory drink it, but it taste foul. I had a little bonsai tree that died once it got tap water, you also have to pour lots of chemicals into your aquarium if you keep fish as pets so that they don’t die. Norwegian water actually taste nice, so you could probably start a proper scam by bottling your own Norwegian tap water and sell it over the internet for good money. Norwegian mountain water is the only tap water I’ve ever had that ย tasted just like Evian.
  4. A functioning indoor toilet. You can certainly survive without it, just think about the infamous Norwegian “ute do,” but life is sure as hell way more practical indeed with indoor plumbing.
  5. Modern Day Kitchen Appliances. Think about all the time we save by having dishwashers and washing machines! Looking after a household today is certainly way more glamorous than how things were back in the day when women had to clean everything by hand – without indoor plumbing!
  6. A functioning fire-place! In England it isn’t uncommon to block ones fire-place, but if the electricity goes it will be your only heat source, besides dressing up, and laying close to a relative or partner to not lose too much heat during the night. Opting for an old-fashion Norwegian stove that you can cook on top of is also a good idea. An open fire has always been a priority for human beings, living in a high-tech reality doesn’t change that. It enables you to make food without electricity and heat up water. If you’re outside it can also keep animals away.ย 
  7. Central Heating. It’s so practical to just push a magical button sadly that only works as long as everything else is operational.
  8. Electricity! Light, light, everywhere. We are incredibly lucky that we can use lightbulbs and take advantage of all of our electricity driven tools. How would we cope without them? We can but the transition would be horrendous and many would probably die in today’s society if the power all of a sudden disappeared for a month or two.
  9. Tools! The digital infrastructure that we have access to facilitates mobility, efficiency and make it possible to start a business with nothing but a phone. We can also keep in touch with people on the other side of the world and literally follow someone from their hospital bed if a relative is out of reach and ill. Our tools, the internet and the opportunities that social media sites offer would leave a gaping hole in the lives and livelihoods of many if destroyed.ย 
  10. Glass bottles & other non-contaminated food and drink containers.ย I was always grateful for plastic because I perceived it as a quality stamp. When I moved to England and saw that people would prepare food without wearing plastic gloves I would be disgusted since I thought of it as unhygienic. Now that I’ve read that plastic leaks into our food and drinks I feel silly! I’m now collecting glass bottles. I clean them and re-fill them. Last time I was at Starbucks I thought it was ridiculous that their eco-friendly option was a plastic cup … Go for glass. Keep it and clean it, if you find it.ย 
  11. Bottled water & wet wipes. If the water is gone you will desperately need these things. It is better to drink plastic-water than nothing. If you are thirsty enough you’ll drink anything.
  12. Flashlights, batteries & candles.
  13. Easy to consume snack & food stuffs that you don’t prepare yourself! Invisible hands or machines are hard at work to ensure that the Utopia is running smoothly. If you stop to think about how people used to work hard to bake and make these things you’ll probably also realise why obesity has become such an issue. In today’s world we can “comfort eat” and “snack” away as much as we want. You can eat because you want to eat and enjoy food for the sake of enjoying a good meal. The second that you see how much effort that goes into keeping a vegetable patch or cooking foodstuffs from scratch it changes your perspective completely.
  14. A house built with rocks. It keeps cool during the summer, it heats up easily during winter, bad weather have a hard time knocking it down, and it will stand for years.
  15. Fertile land that is good for farming.
  16. Access to edible fish.
  17. Access to edible game.
  18. Knowing how to hunt. Farm animals run when they see strangers, wild animals jump if they hear you or see you from afar. I don’t even know how it would be like to catch one of these things in total desperation due to hunger, without any prior hunting experience at all. It would certainly make for a comical spectacle I’m sure.
  19. Weapons that enables defence and the acquisition of nutrition. One thing is to prep, another thing is to be able to protect what you’ve gathered. A good (or bad) thing to know, depending on how you look at it, is that there are many who are completely unaware of that milk comes from the cow and that potatoes are grown in the ground. This means that there will be many who’ll stay put in the cities or in the towns if everything breaks down, but there will still be some who’ll trek into the country to go where the food is. You need to fortify your position. That is obviously not easy if you live in a territory where it is illegal for you to protect yourself and what is yours. It is also an interesting thing to keep in mind that many population groups were “nomadic,” in the past. Having the ability to move around in order to find good “hunting grounds” and water, is only possible if flexible and armed.
  20. Opportunity for foraging. Nature provides; it is up to us to see it and take it.ย 
  21. A “mud cellar.” Also known as “potato cellar.” Basically a “cellar” dug deep down in the ground where you can keep your food if your fridge becomes useless. If you have access to ice and snow you will be more fortunate as you can just use the outdoors as your natural fridge.
  22. Rainwater or a water well. If you can’t get access to water through the tap and the bottled water is nowhere to be found, then what?
  23. Proximity to real farms that sell genuine food stuffs. No imitation meat, no synthetics. You are what you eat and in today’s junk food reality that is truly scary. Just think about industrialised agriculture and the wellbeing of the animals that we end up consuming; that being said if you are hungry you’ll eat anything, even pets and other humans! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ If you are alive today then it is very probable that your ancestors were extremely brutal at one point or the other.
  24. Low population density. More resources, more space, less fighting and less conflict. The more people, the more problems.
  25. Lack of light pollution. You can watch the stars! Once you get out of the city you’ll be amazed at the beauty in the skies!
  26. Lack of noise pollution & other sense pollution/disturbances. It is so quiet where I live that I can literally hear the gold-fish play with the rocks inside their tank or pigeons fight each other with their wings outside in the garden.
  27. Fresh air. This is so hard to come by in this day and age that I consider this to be a major luxury just like water that taste nice. You are lucky if you don’t have to smell the foul smell of cars and other transportation vehicles. If you have access to air that doesn’t stink or “feels dense/greasy/heavy” you can consider yourself very fortunate indeed.
  28. Being able to order products online that just magically appear at your door. In this day and age you don’t have to leave your house at all if you need something. You can just click some buttons on your device and this will initiate a whole chain of events that you’ll never have to witness or deal with until your desired product just materialise at your location. What would you do if that all of a sudden vanished?
  29. Making your own tools and clothes in case it all breaks down. Our ancestors had to get the wool off the sheep that they had the responsibility for. They then had to spin this wool in order to create yarn so that that in its turn could be used to make clothes. The amount of effort that went into everything that was produced by hand is incredible to fathom. Our clothes are made by invisible hands in the East or machines, God only knows where or how the materials are sourced and what kind of process they go through to gain their colour, texture, etc; Most mainstream fabrics seem to be mixed or synthetic. We don’t have to gather any of the materials, nor do we have to make any of it either. This can probably explain in part the “shopaholic” phenomenon and also the habit of throwing things away rather than fixing what is broken.ย 
  30. High quality footwear and clothes made out of wool. Nothing beats having a Norwegian “sheep-jacket” it might not look trendy, but you are literally walking around with a “bรฆรฆรฆรฆ” on you. Norwegian traditional sweaters, wool mittens and super underwear will make sure that you’ll be ready for the winter. It is of interest to contemplate that wearing fur used to be done out of necessity. Having high quality boots so that you can walk for miles is very important too. What do you do if your car breaks down and all other transportation opportunities are out of the question? Your feet are there to be used.

So with all of this being listed I think a Thank You would be appropriate to God and humans alike who tinker away in order to come up with new tools and gadgets. At the end of the day it could all be gone tomorrow which is why being grateful is of such great importance.

You never know!

Woke up today & felt like a punk & had an idea for something hilarious.

Trolling is always good for the soul & the bigger the audience is the better ๐Ÿ˜›

I can’t wait until I’m done with this personal, ambitious multi-album of mine that I’m currently working on!

I imagine that those who like my classical singing/guitar playing & upcoming material will be quite surprised if they discover my metal ๐Ÿ˜›

Today I had a flashback to my favourite (or most hilarious) music video shoot. When you choose a theme per song it gives you the opportunity to create various characters for each incarnation of your weirdness. It’s great fun.

Best blog post I think I’ve ever seen! I’ll pin this to the top of my own blog this instant!

I woke up this morning with the realization that I needed to make a meme about Nongqawuse. (Context.)

These were the result:

In 1997, 39 members of the Heavenโ€™s Gate cult committed suicide in order to reach a UFO they believed was accompanying comet Hale-Bopp.

In 1978, 918 followers of cult leader Jim Jones committed suicide by drinking poisoned Kool-Aidโ€“the origin of the phrase, โ€œDonโ€™t drink the Kool-Aid.โ€

Mathematician Ted Kaczynski, unable to find a publisher for his manifesto, Industrial Society And Its Future, turned to mailing bombs to professors.

82 Branch Davidians, led by David Koresh, died when their compound burned down during a raid by the ATF. It appears that the Branch Davidians set the fire themselves.

The Thugs were an Indian cult that ritually strangled and murdered travelers.

Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people in 1995 when he bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federalโ€ฆ

A Very Important Announcement!

Sticky

I’m happy to inform my readership (and whoever else who might bump into this blog) that I’m about to change career due to an incredible job offer that I’ve received over Instagram!

Not only have I been approached by the “Illuminati Outreach Organisation” I’ve also received a promising message from “the military unit” in Afghanistan, who wants me to be a courier and transport money for them!

As we all know there is only one military unit down there and it makes perfect sense that they are looking for someone who they can trust on Instagram!

Sounds legit.

My close friend the Major (who’ve I’ve only received one message from) also provided me with his personal email; and I have to say that I feel greatly honoured.

I don’t know what I’m the most excited about but I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life!

Of course I’m not doing this because I’m short of cash since I’m actually filthy rich!

You guys might remember that I announced my new-found riches in 2015 (READ HERE) after I received an uplifting email from Africa letting me know that a vast inheritance was due to me!

It is great when life bestow us with great luck and fortune and I’m thrilled that I’m not only a millionaire, but also part of the U.S.A. Military, in addition to literally being “illuminati confirmed.”

Sounds like the times ahead will be exciting!

I shall now give thanks to humanity (since praying to God belongs to antiquity according to the PC-brigade in the current year).

So I shall say that I feel blessed by man; which would probably be the best way to frame it regardless…..

On the 20th of this month Norway’s equivalence of BBC aired a great program focusing on female guitar players! It was awesome to receive nationwide radio play for my metal & classical music!ย Hear The Interview Here!

I’m happy that I was asked about online haters & bullies, since this gave me the opportunity to highlight that I’ve seen other female guitar players complain about this as well. In short it means that you don’t stand alone if you are in the receiving end of putrid hatred as a woman playing the guitar. If you are self-critical and take what you are doing very seriously it is especially important to remember that hatred can come your way just because of your gender, because people don’t like your face, or your hair, or your outfit, or whatever; I know of course that there are people out there who complain about sexism when there is none and play the gender card just because; this is a pity because real sexism does exists and it should be addressed so that other women will know that they do not stand alone! Once again I am aware that this is a multifaceted issue … I just don’t want creative females to feel unwelcome or to be chased away from unleashing their musical creativity upon the world!

Thanks again to those of you out there who support what I do! I really appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”

The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.

There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!

If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.

I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!

If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”

I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.

Yet now I find myself here:

Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!

Final Flier Summer Evening of Song (Berit Hagan) A4

Summer.

Sticky

It’s so nice when the weather is good and the sun actually provides warmth ๐Ÿ˜›

Seems to me like the sun is just for show in these parts ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I’ve been practising for the fundraising concert I’m doing for one of the local churches.

I’m a bit overwhelmed by my 3rd album, since there is so much happening musically in there. I’ve now decided to add even more to it, and I’ve also had some new ideas with more parts that I want to add on things I’ve already recorded…

(You can support what I’m doing here: My Patreon)…

Creativity and having lots of ideas can be very overwhelming at times.

I have lots of ideas for illustrated books as well, there’s no end…

It is interesting how someone like Jordan B.Peterson is running around the world preaching to people that they need to clean up their rooms and react to things properly, I wonder what his take on creativity would be?

Creative individuals write and create when they are upset, which means that they don’t really sort out the source of what makes them upset a lot of times. Creatives are also notorious for never cleaning their room or atelier as well ๐Ÿ˜›

Apparently you should clean up your room before you can save the world or create something ๐Ÿ˜›

Reminds me of this guitar expert I tried to take lessons from ages ago who claimed that: “you can only create if you know all the theory and techniques out there;” which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life, not to forget this one:”If someone tells you what to create, then you’ll be super productive.” Needless to say, we didn’t see eye to eye….Creativity should never be boxed in or know limitations, unless you are working on something that is “made to order” or whatever, creativity is like water, it is all over the place, and if it is dammed up it will just explode at one point or the other. You might experience tsunamis of creativity. I normally work on multiple songs simultaneously in different genres…

Anyway….

Here are some pictures of me doing nothing…..

I’m guessing this is awesome, since blogging about nothing makes you cool.

Online Hauntings, Abuse & Ethics.

Sticky

Lats year I decided to phone up a good old friend of mine who I hadn’t really spoken to properly in ages. It was a great chat but it was also an educational one for me, since my friend couldn’t get over the fact that she had been in an abusive relationship. She kept on going and going and going about this negative experience.

It confirmed to me that when a negative experience is true, the victim of it (whether the person(s) like(s) to considerย themselvesย a victim or not) will never get over it, or might ease out of it after first mentally obsessing over it, only to then talk about it on “repeat” with friends or family members, before finally letting it go.

After this act of emotional “processing” the trauma or negative experience falls into the psychological “archive” department and might be re-ignited due to association if a similar situation occur in the future. Thankfully the memory goes into “sleep mode” or retreats to a dormant state, even though it is still there, buried within the mental jungle.

Just like I’ve witnessed other people get stuck in this sort mental and emotional ย “loop,” I also experienced something similar after the successful “trolling” of me online back in 2015.

When I first became aware of that it wasn’t just me that was accessing my social media profiles I had my list of suspects, which is probably why I was just annoyed but not necessarily alarmed….

I previously wrote about how the number of shares on my blog entries were drastically reduced over night, after my birthday entry in 2015. I had previously also spoken about how lame it was that I had issues with promoting a military-themed music video in late 2013.

As far as the social media “trolling” was concerned I thought that a friend of mine was pulling my leg, and thought at first that it was an American editor character. When I realised that maybe I was mistaken, I had another prime suspect that had lurked in the back of my mind for quite a while; an industry character that I had worked with in the past, who also works on programming and was/is involved with a confidential project for the U.S.Government.

(Talk about the perfect storm for a conspiracy theory).

Last on my short list was another show biz character who is involved with a cult notorious for spying on its members…

If anyone of my readers watched the TV show “Hannibal” you might remember the “alternative” (to put it mildly) friendship between Graham & Dr.Lecter. For those who have read a little bit about criminal profiling it isn’t uncommon for guilty people to express their concern and be remarkably helpful, even towards those that they’ve hurt.

Visiting the families of those they’ve killed is one example, feigning empathy.

It was therefore not strange that I suspected some show-biz characters that I had bumped into…

At a certain point though it really started to piss me off that someone was having a laugh on my behalf, trolling and pestering me big time, without me being able to get the weirdo to stop. I actually suffered from sleep -Apnea for a little while, since I had no idea who was messing around with me.

Was it a dangerous criminal from the high-security prison I had performed in? Was it a bored Google or Facebook employee? A bored NSA or GCHQ employee? A random fan with tech-abilities? A crazed, mad show biz person obsessed with my person for whatever psycho-reason?

There was no way for me to know.

My misery reached its peak when I was in the mountains of Norway and it dawned upon me that whoever was tormenting me probably knew where in the world I was due to my phone. It was a low point where I stayed awake the whole night and even decided to put a knife under my pillow, just in case.

After succeeding in frightening me the nuisance stopped after 5 months.

I wrote about the experience and certainly talked about it.

It seemed like the insanity had come to an end, but I was still wondering what on earth that whole thing had been about, since I never really figured out who was behind it.

In 2016 I noticed some awkward things, but just brushed it aside. I took screen shots and shared these online if there was anything weird and just kept on going with my “secret project.”

In 2017 I started to wonder if my online stalker had left me at all, or if the person in question had just gone into “stealth mode” since I was logged out of my Instagram account repeatedly without me doing it. I even experienced my Instagram starting to live a life of its own, while I was on it. My computer also had some strange moments, but I did not really think too much about it and just shrugged it off.

Then in November 2017 I was catapulted straight back into how I felt in 2015 when the social media craziness erupted once again while I was in Norway to attend the funeral of my grandfather … What ensued was even worse than last time, and it hit its peak after some blog entries I had written about the current U.S.President in December 2017, which made me wonder if I was being stalked by a total Trump/Conservative hater, who now had even greater reasons for loathing me. I also started to ponder if I was dealing with a “machine,” or simply put a “bot,” since some of these can be programmed to literally “haunt” you online.

You feed information to the machine and the machine throws it all back at you, or can use it against you somehow.

I have/had a hard time believing all the trolling was/is simply “machine-based” though, I’m pretty confident there is/was some flesh and blood behind it; which would be the case regardless as someone sent this thing my way.

Crazy.

I have no idea why I was targeted. It would be easy to say that it was politics but that wouldn’t ring true for 2015.

After the Facebook scandal I deleted my account since it then dawned upon me that my data could have ended up anywhere. If my data was abused, which I’m guessing was the case, I’m guessing once again that it was all done “in the name of research.”

If I wasn’t the only target then I’m guessing that we’ll see massive law suits in the future from angry social media users pissed off that their personal relationships were compromised, their data used against them and their emotional well-being manipulated by invisible “trolls” online.

What you put out in the world comes back to you. Especially un-ethical behaviour if it is on a large, organised scale.

 

I Just Finished The Old Testament!

Sticky

It’s the 1st of July and I’m officially done with reading The Old Testament!

I’ve been working on a huge review of it and have plenty of notes since there is so much that can be addressed and contemplated when reading through these texts.

A lot of what is contained within these pages is as relevant today as it was back then, since human traits stay the same regardless of time. This is sadly the reason as to why people try to say that the Bible is outdated. God forbid you read this and draw parallels to our world today and realise, in your moments of private reflection, that our societies are ill and in need of healing. I don’t think you are supposed to see that or figure it out.

I’ve always been a quick reader, or I used to be when I was younger. It has taken me a very long time to read through this though, since The Holy Bible isn’t written to be a page turner. I therefore wandered off quite often, but finally managed to pull through it ๐Ÿ™‚

I would recommend everyone to take the time to read it. It is regarded as the most influential piece of literature ever, and the longest reigning “bestseller” world-wide. Not to forget how it changed the filter through which generations before us perceived the world; delivering values upon which our ancestors modelled their societies.

This ideological spectrum also worked retroactively. When looking at “Viking texts” written by Monks, you can obviously sense how Christianity influenced how certain Viking stories were formulated and immortalised in the written form. How were these stories before Christianity? What is the whole truth?

Falsification due to propaganda and remodelling due to new standards is nothing new. It has happened before and we are witnessing it now, this time around, due to “political correctness.”

If you want to preserve your Holy Scriptures, or anything else of value, you ought to get some stone tablets. Who knows the extent of the cultural loss humanity has suffered whenever there’s been a moment of environmental “divine intervention?” Violent “climate change” has happened numerous times. It is actually quite frightening if you look into it. Carving things into stone increases your chances of keeping the flame of culture and faith alive.

Books and texts can in many ways be perceived as programming tools; the coding for various programs, internalised by our “human avatars” in order to interact and engage with this interactive, recyclable, organic, mortal world. The more dependent we become upon our technology the more vulnerable do we render our cultural inheritance. Especially since the art of storytelling is increasingly watered down by the dulling of our capacity for memorising extensive material.

My own spiritual journey has taken me from philosophy in my childhood, to flirting with intellectual Satanism and the occult in my teens, to meditation and mental training in adulthood and has now landed me in the Christian camp.

My approach to the spiritual was a quest for self-empowerment but ironically enough it wasn’t until I re-opened my heart to others through prayer that I found the inner peace that I had been yearning for. For many years I only found happiness if there was any good news regarding my music, after the 22nd of February this year I woke up again after 13 years in slumber. What an amazing experience! I do feel in many ways like I’ve come around full circle. I thank fate for bringing me to the empty church “in the middle of nowhere” that set me on the Christian path. I certainly understand now why people say that they’ve been “Born Again,” such an experience doesn’t have to involve drugs, crime or alcohol. It can be an emotional experience as well.

Prayer is greater than meditation since you direct your heart towards others.

That is where true peace is found, not in a self-focused spiritual quest.

I’m not complaining! I can’t believe the longevity of classical music. It is quite something to behold.

The U.S.A. has always been my nr.1 market, followed by the U.K. & Norway. Considering how huge America actually is and how much music that is released there constantly, I cannot believe that this Zombie-Album has been hanging in there for roughly 4 years! I think that says it all. My metal music sold as well, but it never officially charted on Amazon and/or iTunes (to my knowledge), but it did get me into the top. 3 as the only unsigned artist on the streaming site ReverbNation.

In addition it obviously struck a chord with press people. I guess it is cool with a female rocker, kicking ass, in a fake uniform ๐Ÿ˜› (mwha-ha-ha)

I thought that I was going to release a Major Label Classical Crossover Album last year, but ended up ill unfortunately, now I’m working on original music since I needed something lighter, to bring me back … something that could excite me instantly.

There will be more Classical guitar playing down the road, but for understandable reasons I just had to go back to what initially inspired me to pick up my 1st instrument…

Classical virtuoso music is incredibly tough on the upper body and I guess that I can consider myself lucky since I’ve never encountered any issues with my wrists and that I haven’t been permanently damaged, yet.

Classical virtuoso music is also tough mentally, as you sit for months repeating runs over and over for hours every day, in addition to the pressure of playing these high-performance pieces live, where any tension or nervousness will affect the tone.

Everything and anything is audible.

You have to be married to your instrument and your routine. In addition to copying with motivation loss due to the repetitiveness and the discomfort. You’ll get into the habit of constantly turning your head to glance at whatever watch, since your practice routine becomes your all and everything.

Therefore it makes me very happy to feel that my effort is being appreciated.

I’m very happy to see the numbers on my Bach video as well. There will be more.

On the 10th of August I will be singing classical music and do my 1st opera concert. It will be a mix of religious and secular music and is a fundraiser that I’ve initiated for my favourite church. As I’ve mentioned before; there is a challenge in keeping these places of worship around, due to low attendance numbers, no government support and a general lack of interest.

It is a pity, because it is part of England’s cultural and spiritual heritage.

I’m looking forward to filling the church with song and I hope that my readership will join me.

If you like what I do then make sure that you check out my books and my other music releases.ย 

If you are keen on music lessons, then I currently offer those over Skype only. They can be purchased either here or here.

The Downward Spiral Of Curiosity & Honesty.

Sticky

This evening I decided to re-read my 1st blog book “Thoughts” which can be purchased right here:ย My Book.

It is of interest that typos found their way into the final product even when I read through the blog entries several times, in addition to using a grammar tool. It is my experience so far that the tech we have at our disposal hasn’t caught up yet. I often see that mistakes make their way into my final published entries and I see this with articles published by mainstream major media outlets as well.

I’ve decided to let my mistakes stand though as a testimony to my own humanity and fallibility. Hopefully I’ll publish something typo-free next time around with better grammar. In my own defence: English is my 4th language! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The reason as to why I decided to read through my book this evening was to double-check and police myself. At the end of last year I started freaking out a bit when I received a spooky comment on one of my entries regarding radical Islam in Europe. In addition to this I re-lived the sort of social-media strangeness that I first experienced back in 2015. Wondering if I had caught the attention of someone dangerous I set a number of my entries to Private, but when things calmed down I later went on to publish them as a book. After looking at them again now I don’t necessarily see any controversy, unless one chooses to be in denial over how things are playing out politically for the various Nations of Europe.

It is of interest that my 1st political entry published in early 2016 was written from a completely secularist perspective, certainly aligned with the Europe of today – if one is opposed to imported extremism that is.

Fast forward to November the 19th in the same year and I’m openly contemplating whether it was a grave mistake to destroy Christianity within our continent as it was evidently starting to dawn on me that our values are not competitive.

It becomes obvious when looking at the entries that I’m describing a decaying social construct and a governing elite mistrusted by their own people due to a widening gap between those who lead and those who follow…

When observing small acts of kindness and respect from the current leadership in the U.S.A. towards their American voters (something that is never really reported on in the mainstream media press) you see an effort in place to ensure that “the people” (regardless of how abstract the definition of “the people” is) don’t feel forgotten by those who govern!

President Donald J. Trump shaking the hand of every single Navy Graduateย at the graduation ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018;ย represents great leadership since these type of acts make those who work for you feel valued. Those who were there will probably never forget it; it is also suitable that one should look those in the eye that one might send out into war one day. It is the lack of such acts, just to pick an example, that can potentially create distance, resentment, and eventually loathing, towards those who are in charge….

It is important to make people feel that they are being taken seriously and that they are at least listened to.

In my entries it is obvious that the gap between reality and the fiction sold by the political-correctness brigade just keeps on widening, and that the people are aware and notice, fuelling underneath the build up of total fury.

I hardly mention U.S. politics in my book at all, since this was obviously not on my radar at the time.

Seeing the blog entries now gives me the chills since what I describe is a crumbling Europe, where certain demographic groups have been planted into every single European Nation, which surely looks like a deliberate act of long-term de-stabilization.ย 

I address the symptoms of continental illness, but without rudeness, I make the distinction between the moderate and the extreme. That being said; the fixation that naturally ensues when one knows what the truth is and pursue this truth further, is not a healthy endeavour. I’m amazed I haven’t had an aneurysm yet, because heavens knows: the current predicament of Europe makes me sick!

The reason as to why people become entangled in this obsession, is because people know that their concerns are legitimate and right. They keep on going and going and going and going, not necessarily out of ill will but because they know that they are speaking the truth and that matters will only get worse, much worse, if nothing gets done.

The irony of course is that something can only be done by those who have the power to do so, the question is whether there is a willingness, and that is where the division between “the people” and those who decide kicks in, not to forget that an unwillingness to act will probably give birth to competing entities that bypass established institutions….

An incredulous political vision is being pursued in Europe today; and I hope that the emergence of bold, conservative leaders will give us a much-needed shift before a peaceful re-setting will be out of reach.

The wider the gap gets, the more troubling is our future.

 

Freedom in Europe & Tommy Robinson. Freedom in U.S.A. & Roseanne Barr.

Sticky

I became greatly troubled when I heard the news of how Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in prison for standing outside a courthouse streaming from yet another grooming case. What I found especially worrying was that no one in the press were allowed to report on it, until the ban was lifted today (Thank God). Now I do not consider myself to be a member of the press, but I’m a civilian Westerner who participate in our societies, which is what we are meant to be doing … I sign petitions that are being passed around the digital world, I’ve sent some emails to local representatives asking about MicroPlastics in our drinking water, I’m helping out in the local community and I registered myself as a voter last year and campaigned within the family to get as many votes with me as possible down to the Norwegian embassy in London. I also shared information on my blog regarding the election and promoted the whole ordeal everywhere in order to inspire my fellow Norwegians to participate in the democratic process!

I sent an email to the local Parish council wondering if I could be of help, since I knew that there was a position open and that they struggle to get new people in. I was not eligible due to the particular EU deal that my country of origin has – but if I had been eligible I would have been very happy to help! I live in a small village and feel that I’m experiencing the best of England. My experience of this country is nothing but good. That being said I am seriously considering investing in Medieval Chain Mail for my next London trip … since it is illegal for people to protect themselves in this country……

I myself don’t have to worry about “Trucks of Peace” at the local Christmas market where I live, but I also understand that there is no guarantee that this Utopia will continue….

I live in one of the safest areas in the UK and can in many ways just turn a blind eye to the suffering and fears that other people in this country have to deal with, but I have not.

Whenever a person decides to voice their opinion there is usually a turning point and for me that was the one year anniversary for the attack on Charlie Hebdo in France.

Like many troublesome things … it all started with France…..

#JeSuisCharlie #CharlieHebdo #Solidarity

A post shared by The Commander In Chief (@thecommanderinchief1) on

You see … I lived there for a year and attended school there, so I know that you will never get any good grades at all, if you don’t participate in the exchange of ideas.ย Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is the beauty and the essence of France’s greatness. At least in my opinion. It is all about having your say and expressing yourself, being yourself, being YOU and celebrating libertรฉ, รฉgalitรฉ, fraternitรฉ!

Regardless of what you might want to believe, the French are fearless. They are not interested in their rights being taken from them, they are not interested in being treated unfairly, and will march out in the streets, throw their fist in the air, and let the whole world know what they think!

Sure, I do not envy anyone working within the French Government, as that must surely be a challenging endeavour. In fact, I would probably sleep in a bunker every single night if I was Macron.

Yet it is this passion and this celebration of individualism that makes France so very fascinating, even if the French are picky when it comes to how you speak their language….

A year after the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo I couldn’t get over it, I couldn’t let it go. Nobody else seemed to care anymore. There were no hashtags, there were no flag-filters, people were busy with their own affairs and seemed like they had forgotten.

To me it was the day that I published my very first entry about the current continental crisis that we are standing face to face with in Europe today. At the time I didn’t know as much as I know now, I’ve changed somewhat, but I knew that I had to speak my mind and speak up for our part of the world, and whether people agree with my particular values or not; that is precisely what I did.

After this I’ve expressed my opinions online continuously and can’t understand for the love of God why Britain would be interested in deconstructing itself, a phenomenon that isn’t solely English, but a cultural and political issue that can be observed all over the Western world.

In fact I’ve started to wonder if there is a biological expiration date in the “coding” and whether or not this can be credited to the self-destruction mode that apparently has been activated among peopleย withย pale complexions all over the world regardless of geography….

But that would mean giving up on The West and I’m not willing to do that.ย 

I myself have never participated in any protests anywhere in the world and have absolutely no crime record at all whatsoever, anywhere. In fact, if one was to dig properly, nothing can be found, besides my opinions, my sense of humour and me sending slightly (in fact very) retarded messages to people I’ve considered my friends – because yes – I do like to troll people, and yes that will sometimes result in you falling flat on your face. That being said; if I know that I’ve been acting like a fool, I will also apologise.

The idea that I could all of a sudden be some kind of an enemy due to what I’ve liked on Facebook, re-grammed on Instagram or re-Tweeted on Twitter, seems absurd. If I was to be considered a criminal due to openly supporting the US President or for opposing deconstructionism in Europe, then we’ve officially dishonoured all of those who’ve died in the past to allegedly secure us our much envied freedoms…..

I’m asking myself why people have died for their countries if their legacy is to be overshadowed by “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe,” and that is precisely the disgustingย monstrumย that we’ve degenerated into if you’ll get a SWAT team crashing through your front door at night for standing with your country of residency, rather than promoting the caliphate, burning the flag and/or demanding reparations due to some legitimate or un-legitimate offence in the past.

Am I asking the Germans for money? Am I suing them? Am I eating cake when Germans are killing themselves with their self-destructive policies? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding no. I am the last person interested in a German shouting at me, which they easily resort to it seems, but even though this is true I’m not popping the champagne when their Nation is going to shit. There are people out there who want reparations now because of the TransAtlantic slave-trade, there are people who try to play all kinds of cards due to colonisation: “Remove your flag – it is a sign of imperialistic oppression.” Do you want to import these type of attitudes into your country? Well not if you want your country to survive.

When I started sharing my concerns regarding Europe here on my blog I certainly didn’t sit here with a strategic master-plan. I’ve expressed my opinions as a European resident/citizen, and these concerns are legitimate. I do not have a go-bag underneath my bed, nor do I have 50 different fake passports in my safe, nor am I currently trying to destroy my own fingertips so as to make identification harder, nor do I have a stealth-Niqab at the ready.

If you live in a dictatorship you know that liking something on a social media platform, if you even have access to such a thing, can be the equivalence of firing a shot. There are a great number of Christians out there who live in constant fear that people will find out that they have a Bible in their household. People are afraid of speaking their minds all over the world and if one thing is to be said it is that you should never go into a fight or a battle if you are ill-prepared.

If the conclusion I reach regarding our current Europe is that you must have a grand strategy in place before you can even say something at all online, then we’ve already lost. Thankfully I read this evening that it is alright for people to share the news regarding Tommy Robinson’s arrest, and that was surely a great relief.ย 

Now; I’m not trying to say that Robinson is a Saint, I do not know the guy, have never met him, but I’ve seen some of his content. This man loves his country and hates what it is becoming, from what I can tell. He is also the last man who I would want to piss off, because believe me, if this man feels wronged or if he is on to something, he will not stop. I’ve seen how he has confronted those who try to bring him down and that is precisely why he is now in prison. ย He displays the same drive and energy that can be witnessed when mainstream media people are running after a person they want to get hold of and/or target. He is obsessed with the future of his own country and has risked everything for his cause. By throwing him into prison he has automatically been given the martyr status that any sensible opposition should have avoided. Whether he survives his very long sentence or not;ย he has become a symboland symbols never die.

It was clumsy to silence the press, it drew instant attention and made the story go viral. I mean look at this:ย http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/26/redacted-arrested-for-redacted-outside-redacted-leeds-crown-court-issues-media-ban/

Since I’m a Westerner, who lives in a free democratic world, with freedom of speech as one of its/our greatest virtues – I haven’t exactly prepared for a battle. I represent the very individualism that our part of the world champions, but this also means that I’m not exactly meeting in secrecy with unofficial organisations that will have my back if I’m all of a sudden considered an official threat for being pro-English, pro-Europe, pro-French, pro-Scandinavia, pro-American – in other words – pro-West.

Am I guilty for being curious? And am I guilty if I care about the well-being of this country? You see that is the impression one can easily get….

Yesterday I got pissed off when I saw a Tweet from Gad Saad. It is certainly rich to sit over in Canada and ask oneself why on earth people aren’t talking about Mr.Robinson over here in Europe when the media has officially been told to shut up about a non-ethno-Nationalist being thrown into prison, where he will probably end up getting killed! Gad Saad doesn’t even live here, and if you all of a sudden suspect that you’ve woken up in the new USSR, then it certainly isn’t risk-free to address our current challenges, especially if you officially stand alone without any firm and/or confirmed alliances. Apparently this hasn’t crossed the mind of someone like Saad … if the gag order had not been revoked I could have concluded a much shorter entry by making a point of:

“what Mr.Robinson? There never was a Mr.Robinson in Section E-42856? Welcome to The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe!”

Thankfully I’m not ending a blog entry with these words … or at least not yet.

In other news this evening I saw that Roseanne Barr was thrown under the bus today by everyone; even Breitbart, after she Tweeted something insulting to Valerie Jarrett using the word “ape.” Now I’ve actually referred to myself as an ape in one of my older entries. I do believe it was “pale nordic ape” … but then again I do think that all humans think too greatly of themselves … we are all silly little apes caught up in silly little arguments, wasting away, consumed with petty disagreements, but I guess this thinking of mine is worthless in an age where any comment, and especially any insult, can become lethal ammunition if used right.

Roseanne Barr’s comment was clumsy and I think the reason as to why I didn’t get really, really, angry is because I’ve referred to myself as an ape in the past. Then again I cannot really see myself calling a brown-skinned individual, or a minority person, for ape, because why on earth would I? It was a really silly or thoughtless move in an age where people are looking for racism and anything they can use anywhere!

Roseanne Barr gave the left what they wanted and what they are always on the look out for … I’m guessing that it would be catastrophic if President Trump now went out and defended Mrs. Barr, because the President has to deal with his own accusations of racism, something that he seems to be battling daily. (Record Low Unemployment Rates for Minorities in the U.S.A.)

This means that Roseanne has been disavowed by everyone which is a pity, because her show was much-needed. The opposition won, or at least this time around. Roseanne’s show has to come back because it was important, and people loved it. The fact that the left dictates what is allowed or not has to come to and end, because they insult and behave badly yet somehow manage to portray themselves as having the moral high-ground time after time. As of now there are lots of politicians all over the Western world who live in fear over what the media might write about them and this results in them having no balls, quite frankly.

The deconstructionists will win if they are allowed to dictate the rules of what one ought to talk about and what one oughtย not to even think about.ย

Numbers & What They Reveal When You Blog.

Sticky

Today it is Sunday and since I’m trying to be a good, civilised, Christian I should not think about work today, or do anything work related. Yet sometimes that can be easier said than done, especially if feeling somewhat inspired….

So today I sang! I love singing and can’t wait to share videos of myself doing the coloratura repertory! So far I’ve been posting “teasers” of myself working on virtuoso arias and with the exception of ย “Solveig’s Song” (featured on my #1 Amazon bestselling classical album), I haven’t shared much from my Bel Canto adventure. I’ve used my training to sing my own music, now I’m finally ready to show people the classical side ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So today I felt very excited and promoted myself on Instagram, and therefore ended up checking my profile over and over out of curiosity. Would I get likes fast? Would it go slower than usual? Would I get any buzz? Hmmm? Hmmmm?

Then I decided to go to my blog to look at my numbers … what do people really want to read about?

I started this project back in 2015 after fans were requesting a blog. I’m not quite sure what people thought I would be writing about, but it is interesting that my most popular blogging year was the one when I was mainly writing about myself, and myself, and yes; myself, myself, myself, and myself โค

I was surprised to see that I could have an impact and not be hated by my followers and fans by going all politico in my 2nd year of blogging, I thought that this was kind of cool! I liked that I could have my say without making people upset. I will get back to that a bit further down in my entry….

Now I first want to write about my most popular entries after almost four years of blogging….

As it turns out, it is apparently really cool to write about oneself….

My number one entry of all time is this one:ย I have a tiny problem.ย A really silly entry where I got caught up in our dysfunctional pop-culture and decided to “come out of the closet” by self-diagnosing myself with OCD. Yes I know, really great! We all fall flat on our faces sometimes and in this age of ours where we live increasingly online it goes without saying that idiocy can seem ever more prevalent and be blown out of proportion. What can I say? Our world glorify obesity and mental health issues. Everything is normalised and if you act like an idiot or have any quirks, then there is probably a label out there that you can proudly embrace … A fun thing to note is that while mental health issues are popularised to such an extent that everyone now thinks that they have one, (whether they go out with it online or not) terrorism, high school shootings and anything bad is credited to mental health issues………

I’ve become convinced that people are being duped big time with all of this “coming out.” If you are gay; come out, let as many people as possible know. If you are physically unhealthy; celebrate it, do not try to change! Pose! Let the whole world see you in all your splendour! If you have an STD; then let the whole world know! Be proud! Feeling down? Come out with a depression! Do not think about how this can be used against you later! Not sure what you are or where you fit in? Then come out as “alien kin” or stand in solidarity with whatever group!

Quite frankly it sounds like all of this “coming out” sets us up for a massive purge. Want to kill all the gays? Go to the Pride parade or find them online! Want to find the alternative goth people? Go for online communities. I had never heard of a “social media” platform until I had my first “alternative” friend, (which I thought was very cool by the way, since I eventually found a group of people to hang out with who dressed like me and were into the same kind of music like me) she was using a social media platform for Goths. I had the impression that these type of things were of interest to “outsider groups” or people with un-trendy preferences in order to find like-minded people, never in a million years could I have imagined that everyone would plug themselves into some sort of online community. Myself included! I have to say that I thought that Vampire Freaks looked kind of cool when I started an artist page on there; but I quickly lost interest. I prefer real-life interactions actually.

When thinking about the openness that we are currently celebrating in our part of the world, I cannot help but feel that it is some sort of trap. If all of a sudden there is a culture change and/or another less tolerant group invades us, it would be easier I imagine to create lists over “undesirable elements.”

I also find it interesting that my entry above became so popular. It shows how interested people are in gossip and how “pop” it is with dysfunction, especially if it concerns a YouTuber and/or artist. It got plenty of shares as well :/ Awkward to say the least, and evidence to me that there is something odd with our culture since I actually wrote this and put it out there. You are never immune to the influence of the time that you live in. All you can do is repent if guilty of something serious or consciously move away from movements that are unhealthy or dangerous.

My most popular entry two years in a row, and my 2nd most popular entry of all time, is this one:ย Skin Care. Red Flag Alert!

That is an interesting thing to note when you are not a beauty blogger and you’re not even actively promoting a skin care entry that was written out of curiosity. What can be found within our little bottles of wonder? Well it is obvious that there are plenty of women asking themselves the exact same thing all over the world and that people are conscious of what they put on their skin. Have people always been concerned with this or is it a new phenomenon due to increased focus on eco-friendly products, etc;? That would be interesting to know.

If I was to feed “the machine” and satisfy “the market” I would change my current interests and only write about various beauty products. That would certainly mark a massive change in blogging style but maybe it would turn my blog-hobby into a proper hit?

My 3rd most popular entry of all times is thankfully one about guitar playing. Thank God! I guess I would have been worried if none of my music industry related articles were in the Top 5….This entry has been set to private, since I’m planning on releasing it as part of a proper book. My tips were available for free for a very long time! If people are interested in guitar lessons they can get in touch via my website or my social media ๐Ÿ˜› Or even better: go to my Patreon ๐Ÿ˜›

guitar advice.jpg

My fourth most popular entry of all time is another appearance related one.ย (Interesting that people are so interested in looks). In this one I was writing from the typical “empowered female” point of view where you tell your haters to sod off and that you have no interest in changing for anyone, or anything. I can’t even remember why I felt inclined to write such a thing? I’ve never suffered from any feelings of inferiority due to my appearance, in fact, I’ve been very laid-back ever since picking up a guitar.

When I was working on my classical album however I wanted to change the design of my uniforms and be more feminine, because I guess that’s what happens if you’ve been in a male-dominated industry for too long. I was always trying to play down my femininity when I was hanging around metal guys in order to not stand out too much. I only really looked great when I was performing. At one point or the other though you’ll get tired of looking androgynous. You will yearn for more skirts, hot pants and high-heels.

It feels more natural to dress up when you have lots of female friends, because you do not want to be the ugly one. If surrounded by teenage boys and intimidating beer drinking metal guys, you’ll probably feel like going more incognito.

This entry has also been set to private since I’ve included ย it in a book I want to publish. I find it funny that I made a point of how honest this entry was. Aren’t all of my entries honest?ย appearance blog .jpg

My 5th most popular entryย is about “hopeless musicians.” I created a list with 22 cases of questionable behaviour from weirdos in the rock’n’roll scene. I didn’t mention any names or give out any details, I just wanted to share with the world how difficult it can be to put a band together. I certainly laughed a lot when I wrote it. It was funny and instantly became very popular. I wasn’t trying to be rude, there are just an awful lot of strange scenarios that you’ll find yourself in if you are a solo-artist and you have to get a band. The entry has been set to private and will be published as part of a show-biz book.

So what happened when I decided to go full politico?ย 

At first I was surprised that I could actually have some sort of impact. That there were people out there who agreed with me and that my opinions could actually reach others and maybe even affect their voting! Aha! Who would have thought? Fearing that maybe I would alienate fans I couldn’t believe my eyes when my EU entry became my 2nd most popular entry in 2016 and didn’t get me lynched (at least not yet)!

I’m guessing that it became so popular because it was pro-“the people,” pro-English and profoundly pro-European. I was criticising the sacrifice of health and nationalism on the altar of absolute corporate greed stating that we shouldn’t throw out what labour unions have been fighting for in our part of the world. Most people will be working class anyway, so that can explain the appeal! I was also very supportive of the NHS, a support that I’ve lost after experiencing being ill for a prolonged period of time….

Even though I’ve been a staunch defender of socialised health-care I ended up going private when I stood face to face with health problems myself. I therefore feel that it would be hypocritical of me to still promote something that is clearly not working in our part of the world. It saddens me actually. I wish it could work.

As far as my comments on excessive anti-National-interest corporatism is concerned, I don’t believe that corporations should be allowed to walk all over “the people” or entire Nation States. To me it sounds immoral, just like it sounds wrong that a Nation State shouldn’t be able to control its own food production.

I’m guessing that the EU model looks good on paper but can have catastrophic consequences if food storages are needed in a time of crisis and you as a Nation State have let harvesting opportunities go to waste, due to politically correct arrangements.

Think about all the people who died of hunger in The Soviet Union. We might eventually find ourselves in a similar situation due to extreme weather.

When looking at this entry now I’m guessing that some Americans could feel that the entry was somehow anti-American, but that is not the case. It doesn’t criticise the various population groups in America in any way. I was clearly concerned about corporate America plundering our Nations through a trade agreement with the EU that would have affected its member states without its member states having any say in the matter. I don’t think it is unreasonable to be concerned about such a thing.

As far as food production is concerned it is true that we are generally more paranoid when it comes to pesticides, etc; Is this wrong? I think not. I might be openly conservative but my prepping-project is based on organic, vegan, politically correct, vegetable growing. I’m not going to pretend that the environment doesn’t matter. Just like I can’t pretend that socialised health-care works.

If you want to read my political blog entries you can now read them in my 1st blog book: “Thoughts.”

My 4th most popular entry in 2016 was the one I wrote about “The Presidency” after Donald J. Trump’s unexpected victory. I was thrilled that someone finally spoke about bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.A., I wrote about outsourcing and criticised treacherous extreme capitalism, where people only empower the East “leaving the West in a ruin” years ago. I wrote this when I was in my late-teens and couldn’t believe my eyes when a Presidential candidate was concerned with not only this, but also with Urban America.

I read President Donald J. Trump’s “contract with the American people,” and liked it very much, but could certainly see how he would end up being criticised and worked against. I was proven right to a certain degree; only that I based my predictions on his campaign promises and politics alone. That is obviously not what has happened since he’s been spied on and have been dragged into all sorts of scandals, all in the name of getting rid of an annoying political threat. I’ve been quite shocked to see how all sorts of media outlets have ganged up on the current U.S.President to tear him down and get rid of him. I predicted that he would end up being treated like the new George W. Bush. Trump has been in the receiving end of not just that, but a total witch hunt. It is quite something to witness. My “Presidency” entry proved popular, I’m guessing it was alright to people since I revealed that I had previously been a fan of Hillary Clinton … In addition I didn’t trash Barack Obama either, even though I was never a fan…. I kept things civil in other words.

My 2nd most popular entry in 2017 was my short review of the documentary “Empire of Dust.” It surprised me that it became so popular, and in the end I found it so disturbing that this article had a constant presence in my “most read” section, that I set the entry to private. (I’ve now made it public again, after writing an update).

The movie was not very flattering for Africans, but certainly very much so for the Chinese who are moving into the African continent in full force.

I do not come from a place of prejudice or racism and was quite frankly shocked when I found myself exposed to street-level diversity in my teens, as it certainly clashes with the image that is sold to the masses. The truth is that street-level diversity is downright dangerous, something that is seemingly meticulously covered-up by the mainstream media in particular. This is a disturbing realisation as it endangers the public.

I feel incredibly lucky that I survived living in some of the areas that I’ve sadly been exposed to in the past.

Now that I’ve read through my entry again I think it is fairly obvious that I felt awkward about watching this film. It doesn’t look good at all. If you really don’t like black people you’ll probably feel like your instincts have been proven right somehow, but if you don’t come from a place of innate racial hatred, you’ll find this a sad watch.

Africans are about to get colonised once again, but not by the so-called evil “white man,” but by the Chinese.

One can certainly wonder when African tribes will stand up for themselves and take what is theirs. I’m not a fan of replacement migration and destabilization in Europe, but I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I support “probable future abuse of Africa” at the hands of China. If Africans are to stand up for Africa, then they probably have very limited time. What makes the situation even more problematic is the fact that Africa is an extremely diverse continent with lots of different ethnicities that don’t really see eye to eye. An important thing to remember for those who think that all black people are the same, or who want to believe in racial solidarity…..

empire of dust

My favourable review of the communist publication “The Class Struggle ,” was my 8th most popular entry in 2017 which is very interesting when thinking about how many entries I actually wrote last year … A great number of them were actually about the Trump administration and about the Norwegian election, none of these entries made it into my top. 10. That being said there were lots of clicks on my “Home Page/Archives,” but that doesn’t tell me the views on specific articles. It just means that a certain number of people scroll around on my page, and this always represents the majority of views.

Some might scratch their heads wondering why on earth I would give a thumbs up to a radical newspaper such as this one, but the writing was good and a number of the articles showed a National concern rather than a globalist focus. I picked up the paper full of prejudice due to an article I saw about the reformation, where it was suggested that Islam would naturally go through something similar … as if though reformation movements just happen because of global innate human progress….when I started reading the paper from front to back though, I realised that there are a lot of good journalists and writers out there who work for the “reds.”

My 7th most popular entry was a joke post, where my brother and I dressed up like SJWs. I ย don’t think anyone understood the humour. We had fun at least….I tried my best to look like a proper left-wing journalist. I think I succeeded.

So far I don’t have a single new blog entry of what I’ve published this year in my Top.10 for 2018. Either I’ve been lousy with my Tweeting or Twitter has shadow banned me, maybe even both for all I know. Last year I was ill and had plenty of time on my hands to write, this year I’ve been very eager to get back to work. I have not written much about myself nor have I published entries about beauty and/or looks. My skin entry is still on number one, but there are a couple of interesting articles from last year that have climbed up in popularity all of a sudden…..

My 3rd most viewed entry so far this year is this one called:ย Diversity โ€“ Why It Is A Complex Issue.ย What is especially interesting to me is that it was down on the 75th spot last year and I have no idea why it has suddenly gone up. Is there growing interest concerning diversity in our part of the world? It would certainly be understandable, but still, talk about dramatic change.

My 4th most popular entry so far this year is this comical one called:ย The Degenerate West?ย It has gone up from the 13th spot last year.

My 7th most popular entry so far this year was my review of “Empire of Dust” before I decided to put it to private. If I had not it would probably have been up there in the Top. 5.

Unless I’m being trolled big time (by some bored tech guy or something ๐Ÿ˜›) I’m assuming that this growing interest in Western Degeneracy and sudden Demographic Change is organic. There was also a sudden interest in my articles about the increase in Acid Attacks in the UK at one point last year….

Judging from what I wrote in the beginning of this long entry it is obvious that existence is so utterly horrid that people yearn for nothing but distractions. I find it interesting to write about the world and review/analyse the content of books, but I don’t really think that this has a general appeal. In fact it might just make people depressed. When writing about anything political it is probably good to speak from a very populist place rather than posting a sour post like this:ย When People Can Not Process What They Are Reading., which got a total of nine views last year and is just one step removed from echoing French President Macron’s epic statement along the lines of “people just don’t understand me – I need an interpreter so that I can communicate with real people.”

I’ve also come to understand that my praise of “people mining” meaning: “looking for the best people with the highest brain-power and potential, searching for these characters wherever they may hide;” was slightly ill-informed. I take it back. The Western world has been thinking itself into a coma and this can be credited to the sort of high-performing individuals I alluded to in my “Jupiterian” entry. Maybe it is better to deal with people who don’t think themselves into absurdity but simply act on their gut-feeling and their instincts. It certainly seems like Western experts are thinking and writing themselves and everyone else into total oblivion. It will not be the debaters, writers and/or thinkers who save the West; inventors can find ways to salvage our MicroPlastic Issue and strategists can find a way to protect and defend Western civilisation from itself.

The “experts” will be too busy getting lost inside their own heads to save anything, and will continue to promote ideas that in theory make sense until you plot in the very annoying “human factor,” that for some strange reason always seem to ruin everything.

Would it be far-fetched to suggest that DNA tampering might not improve things either? Probably not; I’m willing to bet that robot-humans would act silly too. Such as writing entries this long. People apparently prefer short entries that get to some sort of point.

And people like positive characters too, just think about all of these positive public speakers (*cough*cough*who are totally not running scams* cough*cough*) who are promising people far and wide that they can change their lives for the better! All you have to do is to give these people your email address or follow them on social media and they’ll share their formula for success! All they post are smiley pictures, everything is cheerful and upbeat, there is no end!

Anyway – Berit-bot is logging out for tonight. This entry is now 3.820 words long. Maybe I will blog about normal-things from now on. How boring. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

How Will The Future Pan Out?

Sticky

What you worry about truly depends on what you are part of and/or what you do for a living. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately after watching some videos with Elon Musk. He seems rather fixated on an A.I. takeover.

As a tech-illiterate individual this is an interesting worry to hear about, since mine of course differs. I worry about a very ethnomasochistic pop-culture + incompatible parallel societies within Europe (or The West) – resulting in our Nations descending into tribalism and internal national division (rather than having high-trust, civic-minded Nations) – potentially resulting in localised civil-war-ish (or full-blown) tensions/conflicts all around our continent. What bugs me to no end is that we might even get more division between Native European Ethnic groups, as the rise in Nationalism does not necessarily equal a Eurocentric focus. I think this is a shame, not because I support the EU in its current configuration, but because I love the idea of strong sovereign European Nations standing side by side through trade agreements and/or a military alliance. This differs from a Europe where Nations are turned into provinces governed from Brussels, not to forget that we are currently facing a continental threat and a continental problem, due to self-destructive initiatives. The idea of European groups standing together though, celebrating our awesome heritage, is kind of awesome in my opinion. So it will suck if the current “cultural enrichment” fiasco results in complete and total fragmentation, in addition to total, unhinged, racism. Being opposed to replacement migration is one thing, hating on everything and anyone is quite another. If this nightmare becomes a reality then I’ll say that I feel lucky that I grew up in Europe when I did. This worry of mine is not a worry that is properly formulated by government figures though, who are obsessed with conventional warfare and state actors, such as China and/or Russia.

The environmentalists on the other hand see a climate induced apocalypse, and see this as the greatest threat to the planet and all of mankind; whereas establishment celebrities are on a crusade against the Trump administration and the so-called “straight-white-male-patriarchy,” with conservatives jumping off the Trump-train if they disagree with one action by the current U.S. President. You will not get everything on your wish-list fulfilled when you cast your vote for a political candidate, if that was the case you would have to have a King; but you wouldn’t be voting for a King now would you, if the top position in the hierarchy was determined by birth-right! On the other hand there are more radical protesters and movements who denounce the political/governmental infrastructures completely and totally, since they seem to believe that a total “system-reset” is necessary. Out with the old and in with the new.

Not to forget all of the various political denominations within and outside governing bodies pulling in all sorts of different directions without necessarily being “revolutionary,” in addition to religious groups, ethnic groups, private interest groups and whatnot.

It can be tricky to know for sure which worries are the most imminent or legitimate ones. One day I published this entry, for example:ย The Death Of Privacy & Humanity., only to come across this horrid article some days later, which certainly made me wonder about my previous statements. The number looks obscene. Is this news story really true? :/

Lent for the 1st time.

Sticky

Sometime after lent had commenced I decided that maybe I ought to try it, not that I was aware of when it started exactly, as the local church is somewhat neglected by the church authorities and don’t even have a service every Sunday; but that’s ok, the most important thing is that the church hasn’t been closed and is still standing strong, open at all times, after all these years. (It’s Norman and an absolute beauty).

Lent was interesting as it functions like a habit-breaker, I was not entirely successful but at least I gave it a go and tried my best. The biblical reason for this strange “celebration” is that Jesus was wandering around in the desert for a while and withstood temptation from the Devil ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I personally have not reached this section of the Bible as I’m still working my way through the Old Testament; I’ve largely been a protestant-in-name-only, (or secular protestant) my entire life, gradually turning to Christianity over the last few years. So lent was pretty new to me (just like attending Holy Communion), but a valuable lesson nonetheless.

The Church of England is struggling greatly; they don’t have enough funds to look after England’s numerous and beautiful places of worship, and most people who I’ve run into complain about dwindling numbers when it comes to attendance.

It is rather sad since England is an Anglican country and so far I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed whatever services I’ve come to; I also heard complaints about general low attendance over in Norway last time I was there. There also seem to be many women who take it upon themselves to keep the faith alive by becoming priests.

The Old Testament is proving a very interesting read as it illustrates how various tribes interact with one another; how everyone travels to Israel to shower the Jews with gifts and praise when they are strong and under tough leadership, while everyone tries to take advantage, looting and conquering the Jews once they are seen as weak! The work is repetitive, as I’ve also written in the very looooong review that I’m writing about it; it is hard to read due to the fact that it was not written to be a page turner. Names of entire Jewish families are listed over and over and over again, which certainly makes for tiresome reading. I therefore decided to check out “The Lion Encyclopaedia of Jesus.,” just to get a more “in-depth” introduction to Jesus; in comparison to what little I already knew.

If you feel like helping persecuted Christians then please read this: “Persecuted Christians around the World.”ย If you live in England then maybe this will be of interest: “The Vulnerability of the Poor & Our Shared Cultural Heritage.” Here are some interesting petitions to check out:ย Petitions To Sign & Share.

Yes; I’ve written about the problematic nature of micro plastics and thought to myself that I would try to separate myself from this carcinogenic heresy.

Apparently this is easier said than done as plastic permeates all aspects of our convenient, civilised, societies. The picture on top of this entry perfectly illustrates the macabre comedy of the situation: behold a gluten-free, tree-hugger-friendly, lactose-free, over-prized, politically-correct loaf, wrapped in *drum roll* plastic. :/

I guess I’ve realised that the only way to fight this insidious invention is to grow your own vegetables, hunt game, and/or keep farm animals, while making every meal from scratch. Considering how quickly it is possible to devour cheese and crackers, sandwiches or chips for an instance, I don’t even want to think about the amount of work that would go into such an endeavour.

Respect to our ancestors who actually had 6-7 kids on average, while running households without any of our modern appliances, not to forget looking after the farm while the man was out fighting whomever.

Yes our societies are convenient, but this convenience is creepy. Now that I’ve been made aware of that plastics leak into our food and water; I have a hard time not noticing it. Our parents did not grow up with it the same way we Millennials have done, so I wonder what people will say about the plastic obsession in the future and whether or not it will all be banned. :/

 

Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.

Sticky

Those who’ve experienced the elementary education offered in Southern European countries can consider themselves lucky, as you really get an introduction to the “Western Civilisation” perspective, rather than the post-modern version void of “the classics.” I remember how we had several volumes of history books for each school year, thick books as well, that offered way more than what my peers and relatives were presented with up North. I recall that the Italian public school system was four years ahead the Norwegian one which is quite something to think about. Even though that was the case there was little that was given away when it came to WW2 and these type of things, probably because of Italy’s role, I can only assume.

If you find yourself in a similar situation to mine, there will be a need for a brush up at one point or the other, which is precisely why I decided to check out the Greek Myths once again.

Some of it made me remember, some of it was new. It was an interesting read and a reminder of how people find new ways to express the same ideas and concepts. The idea of a death ray, for example, is nothing new, as “War of The Worlds” echoes the evil Cyclops who can grill you with their eye, the same can be said of Maleficent from ย “The Sleeping Beauty” , which brings to mind the story of the Golden Apple, thrown into the midst of a party by a disgruntled entity who was not invited, (indirectly or directly depending on how you want to look at it,) starting or laying the foundation for the Trojan War.

Jean-Pierre Vernant is an extremely gifted writer, the preface was stellar and the main text was impossible to put down. I would highly recommend this work!

It is especially interesting to notice how women are being portrayed. There is this popular myth out there that Christianity was created to oppress women in particular, like a vicious plot, since women were empowered under paganism. However, it certainly doesn’t come across as such, when reading how “sexist” the Greek Myths are/were; with the first woman being practically blamed for everything, much like Eve in Christianity. I have not read the Norse Myths yet, but female characters are apparently severely sidelined with male entities of war taking centre stage. This is of course very interesting when thinking about modern narratives…..I’m assuming that our current age of egalitarianism is unprecedented; at least that is the impression I have as of now; but I might come across something that will change my mind in the future.

Here are some cool quotes from the work; as always: I choose to highlight what I consider to be of interest, it is always best to read the original text in its entirety….

How women are described in Greek Mythology.

“Now, the stories show this Pandora, like her whole genos-the whole “race” of feminine women who descended from her – with a particular characteristic: She is always dissatisfied, demanding, self-indulgent. She is never content with what there is; she wants to be sated, surfeited.”

“…Pandora has a voracious appetite, she never stops eating, she must always be sitting at the table … But any household with a woman in it will develop that insatiable voracious hunger. In this sense the situation is similar to what occurs in beehives …”

“Similarly in the human households, on one hand there are the men, who sweat over the fields, break their backs digging the furrows, tend the grain and then gather it; and on the other hand, inside the houses sit the women who – like the drones – ย  swallow up the harvest.”

“Not only does she swallow up and exhaust all the resources, but that is precisely a woman’s main reason for seducing a man: What she’s after is the barn … she sings the young bachelor her big seduction aria because she actually has her eye on the grain stores. And every man – like Epimetheus before them, all agog, transfixed by her looks – every man falls captive.”

“Indeed, woman, the wife, is a fire burning up her husband constantly, day after day, desiccating him and making him old before his time.”

“If a man marries, his life will pretty certainly be hell, unless he happens on a very good wife, which is extremely rare. Conjugal life is thus and inferno – misery after misery. On the other hand, if a man does not marry, his life could be a happy one: He would have his fill of everything, he would never lack for anything – but at his death, who will get his accumulated wealth? It will be scattered, into the hands of relatives for whom he has no particular affection. If he marries it is a catastrophe, and if he doesn’t, it’s another kind of catastrophe. Woman is two different things at once: She is the paunch, the belly devouring everything her husband laboriously gathered at the cost of his effort, his toil, his fatigue; but that belly is also the only one that can produce the thing that extends a man’s life – a child.”

The greatest threat to men:

“Throughout the long journey to follow, at every moment, behind all Odysseus’s adventures with his companions, this forgetting – the erasure of any memory of the homeland, any desire to return to it – forgetting is the constant danger, the evil.”

How the mob is described in Greek Mythology.

“Men make too much racket. There is the ethereal, silent realm where the gods withdraw to think and gaze upon one another, and then there are these humans, jumping about and agitating, shouting themselves hoarse with quarreling. So from the gods’ standpoint, a good war every now and then solves the problem: back to peace and quiet.”

“… the gods shift over to men the responsibility for decisions they shy from, the same way they sent them the misfortunes or baleful fates they wanted to avoid for themselves.”

How the Greeks identified gender….

“He sees some fifty girls there; Achilles does not stand out among them. Odysseus opens his sack and displays cloth and needlework, clips and jewels, and forty-nine of the girls crowd around to exclaim over his trinkets. But one of them hangs back, indifferent.

Odysseus then takes out a dagger, and that pretty little girl lunges for it. Outside the walls a battle trumpet blares: panic in the women’s quarters, the forty-nine girls dart away with their bits of frippery, while just one – with a dagger in hand – heads for the marching music.

Odysseus has unmasked Achilles just as Nestor unmasked Odysseus – and Achilles in turn is ready to go to war.”

“Identitarians” ย according to the Greeks:

” … Those who embodied the unconditional attachment to the unchanging, who proclaimed the need to preserve traditional values against whatever is other from themselves, against whatever questions them or forces them to see themselves differently – these “identitarians,” the Greek citizens confident of their superiority – are the very ones who topple over into absolute otherness, into horror, into the monstrous.”

Just like the Vikings described men of the East as effeminate, well so did the Greeks.

” … Pentheus harbours the idea that a monarch’s role is to uphold a hierarchical system in which men take their proper place, women stay at home, foreigners are not let in, and Asia – the East – is considered to be populated by effeminate folk in the habit of obeying a tyrant’s orders, whereas Greece is populated by free men.”

How feminists are described in the Greek Myths…

” His mother snatches up her son’s severed head, sticks it on the tip of a thyrsus, and marches about in delight with the thing, which in her delirium she imagines to be the head of a young lion or bull impaled on the end of her pike. … she boasts of having been hunting with the men and like a man, of showing herself to be even better at hunting than they. With that mob of demented, blood-spattered women, Agave goes over to Dionysus, who is still garbed as a priest.”

How Warriors are described by the Greeks:

” Cadmus does as instructed … sows the dragon’s teeth. Hardly has he finished than from each tooth springs up a warrior – already full grown and armed in military gear, with helmet, shield, sword, lance, leg guards, and breastplate. Once up and out of the ground, they eye one another with contempt, snarl, and hurl challenges the way men do who live for slaughter, warfare, and belligerent violence – soldiers through and through. Cadmus understands that they could easily turn on him.”

When offered immortality Odysseus turns it down, since he values his family way more, not evenย his encounter with Achilles can change his mind:

“Odysseus had visited the land of the dead; there among the spectres he had heard Achilles say how dreadful it is to be dead, how this phantom with no life or consciousness that a person becomes – this nameless shade – is the very worst future a man can imagine. And now, after his long journey and all his ordeals, Calypso offers him the chance to be immortal and to stay forever young, no longer to fear death and old age.”

“What Achilles says in The Odyssey is the opposite of what The Iliad proclaimed: that Achilles had the choice between a short, glorious life and a long life without glory, and he had never hesitated or doubted for a moment: He would choose a glorious life and heroic death in the flower of youth, because the glory of a short life ending in a fine death was worth far more than anything else. Now he says exactly the opposite: Once a man dies, given the choice he would rather be a poor louse-ridden peasant alive in the most benighted backwater of Greece than great Achilles in the world of the dead.”

What Odysseus sees when he visits death:

“They form a vague mass of beings who used to be individual persons but can no longer be distinguished. From that mass swarming past him there rises a terrifying, unidentified sound. They have no name, they do not speak; it is chaotic noise.”

The island of the sun god.

“The place does belong to the sun, that all-seeing eye.”

Sirens at work:

“But meanwhile, even as these beauties are revealing the Truth with a capital T … their island is ringed by a mass of corpses, flesh decomposing in the hot sun on the beach. These are the bodies of all the men who succumbed to the Sirens’ call and died. … What they say to Odysseus is in a sense what will be said of him when he no longer exists, when he will have crossed the frontier between the world of light and that of shadows, …”

 

“An Angel Saved Me” by Theresa Cheung.

Sticky

This is an eye-opening and potentially unsettling/spooky book, I really enjoyed Cheung’s work as it featured countless stories from people describing supernatural experiences. A common thread can be seen when reading these type of stories. The book stand out though due to its many witness accounts; I really enjoyed its style, I would also recommend:ย The Map of Heaven โ€“ by Dr. Eben Alexander & Ptolemy Tompkins.

I’m guessing that spiritual skeptics wouldn’t have much interest in a book such as “An Angel Saved Me,” but if you’ve heard of or experienced anything that resembles what’s within these pages you’ll certainly find it fascinating, like a confirmation of sorts.

I really had no idea that there were people out there communicating with Angels, until I heard that the Norwegian royal princess engages in this sort of activity; I thought it sounded a bit spaced-out at the time, but now I’m not so sure.

I do find it interesting however that all of the Angel encounters described in this work are so positive in nature, it wouldn’t surprise me if there are some vicious celestial beings at work as well; if you believe in the “otherworldly” it could explain the battle between good and evil in our world.

Cheung’s work brings up some points that I’ve certainly come to see as self-evident, something that many alternative doctors also believe in, namely: that we are all connected to a super force and that there is meaning hiding in everything. Some refer to this as “synchronicity.”

Cheung points out the importance of the word and how we can all be angels/helpers to others. I thought a bit about this after reading and my own thoughts about the matter is that: Being the helper of some might make you the enemy of others, but being the helper of some is probably better than being the helper of none.

Let’s say that I pass a homeless person as I’m on my way home. I give this individual whatever change I have and a smile might spread across the person’s face, followed by a “Bless You” or a “Thank You.” It is even better if I then look at the rough sleeper, acknowledging his/her presence, rather than avoiding eye-contact, which is the most comfortable thing to do, as homeless people both remind us of the fragility of existence while maybe giving us a slight sense of “survivors guilt.”

Yet after I’ve done this small act of charity, I walk past another rough-sleeper, and this time I have no change to give. To this individual I represent nothing but another walker-by. Just another one blending into the city-landscape, almost highlighting the beggar’s loneliness and social isolation. Everybody just walk on by lost in their own thoughts about what they need to do, where they ought to be, where they are heading, etc; while ignoring those that they encounter on their way, not even saying “hello,” an act that can only really be seen in villages/hamlets where any human you encounter is automatically special.

This type of scenario or dilemma can be transposed to all political issues as well; I’ll help group A, but then I cannot really help group B, I’ll stand with these people over here, but that will automatically put me in opposition to those guys over there, these people will benefit and a positive change will happen in their lives, but just as this act of good spreads like a ripple effect, there will be a negative one spreading elsewhere within the group that has been ignored or wilfully sidelined.

The power of the word is truly overwhelming if people awaken to it and think about it. This might illustrate why it is complicated: ย “I just had a negative encounter/experience and will now share this with another person.”

  1. I will create a negative atmosphere, because something of a negative nature is being discussed, and since human nature is the way it is; then I’ll probably spend an awful lot of time talking about that which annoys me with my friend/relative.
  2. I will potentially create some sort of conflict, if action is to be taken in order to “get justice” and settle the issue with the other individual who has offended me.
  3. A lot of people let bad individuals get away with their misdeeds, for the simple reason that they don’t want to deal with the negative emotions stemming from a potential argument or conflict, hence the bad guy has a tendency of getting away with whatever.
  4. If you ever try to fix a proper issue, there will be a lot of pain generated in the process, which then makes me wonder if it is best to not address issues; there will of course be no solution to whatever problem, in fact matters might get worse, but at least you’ll post-pone confrontations with troublemakers, or hand the issue at hand over to someone else….It is in fact very common to see this.
  5. If you are to walk in Love and deal with all problems like some guru, then what on earth do you do when encountering real evil and individuals who are rude and mean to everyone around them, without ever improving or showing any signs of genuine remorse? Is a loving nature more likely to get you killed, injured, devastated and/or emotionally drained, or can you actually improve the world by spreading kindness? And how far can this ripple effect potentially go, if you think about the dilemma described above?

These are interesting matters to contemplate indeed, since it deals with our own spiritual footprint here on earth. It is also an interesting thing to note how hate can be born out of absolutely nothing, which is something that can really be experienced by artists receiving hate-mail for no obvious reason or bully victims chosen and picked on by other children, without anyone really knowing why.

There doesn’t have to be any reason for hate to take its hold, and regardless of how well-intended and strong the love that meets it might be, it can’t be denied that a gun might be love’s greatest protector when dealing with deep-seated, blind rage, caused by infernal, putrid, hatred. Why some fall victims to such strong negative emotions, is peculiar indeed, as others can live through inhuman challenges and still find love and a light within, helping them to forgive while ascending to new spiritual heights.

Ours is a strange world.

Quotes from Cheung’s “An Angel Saved Me.”

“But every morning when we wake up we have no idea whether we have years, days or hours left to live. In the midst of life we are in death, whether we like it or not, and we may never know when our time is up.”

“… but when you think about the idea that we are all connected and nothing we do or say is trivial,…”

“Perhaps the genius of artists, musicians and writers, or the joy experienced by lovers or first-time parents, or the explorer soaring to new heights, come close to the inspiration of feeling ‘not of this world.’

“So the next time you experience a ‘coincidence’, rather than dismissing it, ask yourself what it means.”

“…remember that coincidence is the language that angels speak.”

“Remember, if you don’t think you have encountered angels, many of the people here didn’t actually see angels. Something as simple as a feather, a song, a book, a flash of intuition or a remarkable coincidence was the catalyst for their spiritual transformation. If you look at the world with ‘angel eyes’, every moment is a chance for you to glimpse the mystery and to marvel at the sheer magic of it all.”

“…everything we say and do, however tiny or insignificant it may feel at the time, really has the potential to make others feel as if they have been touched by an angel.”

The UN Declares Genocide Plans For Europe, Russia & Japan.

This is such an atrocity that it is nothing short of international treason to support it. The fact that this was first published in 2000 speaks volumes in light of how the current migration crisis is being handled in Europe. Behold The UN officially declaring replacement of Europeans as a good idea black on white. Don’t be fooled by the question mark! Now in 2017 they’ve replaced their “?” with “could” soon they will replace “could” with “will.”ย Anyone who has ever been paranoid about what our future might entail will despair in knowing that all their fears have been justified. I’m sure Vladimir Putin and Russians in general will be thrilled about UN’s suggestion if they haven’t heard of it as of yet.ย I’m sure Poland will change their immigration policy if they see this or maybe their leadership is acting on this information. We should stand strong together against this insidious evil from The UN whether European, Japanese, American, Russian or Korean.

A big thanks to all of those who share this type of information.

“United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.”

Red Alarm

The Slippery Slope Of Religious Liberty.

Standard

Where do you draw the line if you officially support “normlessness” since everything and anything is just as “valuable”?

The concept of a “non-society” without identity due to “meme-flooding” is something that I briefly touched upon in an older entry of mine where I wrote about an article concerning the LGBTQ rainbow flag.

I translated an article from Norwegian to English where a man explained that the flag symbolises that “anything goes” and that there is no “template” for what constitutes a “normal” relationship; he argued that the activists behind this flag seek to profoundly deconstruct the “nuclear family” and a “functional society” by making traditional families seem “abnormal” and/or equal in status to all other relationship configurations.

Interesting viewpoints indeed; especially since I had no idea what the rainbow flag truly represented. I thought that the activism was/is about gay couples living together without being thrown into prison or killed. I thought that the idea was that couples would be allowed to live free from persecution; funny ย  ย enough I have never read much or been properly exposed to the so-called “LGBTQ” or gay-lifestyle, so I voiced my support for something that I hadn’t really researched or knew anything about, all in the name of “being nice” and supporting “dignity of life,” “human rights,” and “respect for others.”

That is of course very interesting when looking at how the LGBTQ advocacy has played out. I never expected that we would get to a point where normal “make-believe” between children will (or can) make grown-ups wonder if the child is actually acting out “their real identity.” A child dressing up does not mean that the child is subconsciously “transgender,” I do believe that this is a very unusual and certainly abnormal configuration, yet “transgenderism” is now so “huge” that one would believe that everyone falls into this peculiar category.

The whole idea that bathrooms shouldn’t be divided either and that men can all of a sudden appear out of nowhere in a “Ladies room,” is bizarre and in my opinion an “infringement” upon women’s rights. Yet here we are.

I’ve read stories about children being taken away from their parents by the authorities, only to be placed in the care of gay-couples or Muslim couples, something that has obviously enraged the biological parents not interested in their children being exposed to an “alternative lifestyle” or the Muslim faith.

Yet in a society where anything goes, and everything is just as worthy; how can you argue that it is wrong?

Isn’t that your “subjective” opinion?

Because that is precisely the argument that will be used against you if you disagree or question any of this, and if you are lucky, the argument will be supported by cleverly (or foolishly) worded legislation.

Slippery slopes when it comes to “laws & rules” is another topic that I’ve also mentioned; since everything can go over-board in a spectacular fashion if no specifics are given!ย This “obscure” communication-method where abstraction is used to such an extent that the wording can be perceived in a myriad of ways is a ticking bomb that can be abused without measure.

This “fog-talk” and “normlessness” truly places a Nation in an awkward situation since:

  1. shared ancestry as a defining feature of your identity is fought against by flooding your territory with other population groups; eventually creating a situation of a “No-Nation” or basically a “Multi-Nation-Without-Any-Framework-Nation,” since multiple cultures will all be pulling in separate directions.
  2. religion as a unifying factor will be obliterated since any belief system is just as valuable as all others, setting the stage for never-ending competition and countless arguments, further dismantling internal unity and identity.
  3. relationships resulting in children is discouraged, meaning that there will be no future for your Nation and/or that your demographics will become so bad that your children will be forced into a situation where they’ll be surrounded by other tribes and will have to fight themselves out of this compromised situation to ensure their own survival.
  4. women and men are just the same; if women don’t “grow a pair” they are crap and if men aren’t “effeminate” they are crap too.
  5. you cannot have an operational and functional defence since you can never truly name your enemy; nor can you launch an efficient criminal investigation, since having an official suspect would be very offensive to anybody else who would belong to that specific group. How can you say that demographic such and such is a greater threat or pose a greater problem than population group this and that?
  6. the war on terror will be eternal, since the meaning of the word “terrorist” can constantly be altered. Your friend today is your enemy tomorrow and there is no end in sight when it comes to the fight.
  7. you cannot be honest in any field of research, which means that you’ll be bypassed by all of your competitors.

In other words: your Nation will be crushed.
