The Heated Topic Of Immigration Wordlwide & What Sovereignty Actually Means.

There is a proposal on the table that apparently will be voted on and discussed later this month, concerning making it illegal to be a critic of mass-migration, and I guess its effects, which are notable (historically speaking). This is to be done in order to initialize and/or continue with mass migration into Europe without any criticism. I wonder if this makes it illegal to review and talk about History books and/or whether or not it will also make it illegal to write that Norway was converted by the sword, which was the case, only that it was the sword of Christianity. History gives us the key to who we are and what sort of challenges we might face as nations/individuals and how to tackle these …  Here is the video:

Ok … now over to what I was actually going to write about:

I was quite surprised when I read an article a while back about anti-immigration riots in South Africa. It was of interest since it depicted Africans demonstrating against other Africans entering into their territory. I linked to the article here on my site and here I’ve found a video about anti-immigration sentiments in Israel.

Once again it illustrates how we all tackle a lot of the same issues regardless of where we live. With our current technology it makes it increasingly easier to compare cultures and how different population groups react to the same challenges.

What is of particular interest in the video is how the two Israeli women start shouting at one another since they disagree about whether or not they should take in the migrants.

Attitudes and behaviours that Westerners seem to regard as outdated are well and alive in other parts of the world, which you quickly realise when reading about the persecution of Christians.

Enforcing certain values and a clear identity will not happened quietly as anything that falls on the outside of the spectrum has to be removed or silenced. This paints a brutal picture that feels foreign in today’s “liberated” Western world of “Thou What Thou Wilt.” It makes sense to say that “when you go to Rome you do as the Romans” and unless you do have an unhealthy fixation on, let’s say, Islam; it makes sense to say that if you live in a Muslim majority country, then once again “you do as the Romans.”

You are a guest; which is why you’ll have to pay your respects or re-locate.

When observing how “respecting other’s sovereignty” plays out in practise though it actually means that you quietly stand by as genuine minorities (such as LGBTQ characters in Russia) are treated poorly, while political dissenters are sent into camps  (China), while it also means silently supporting terrifying human-rights violations (Saudi Arabia) all in the name of respecting “sovereignty” and a claim to practise ones “identity.”

Even in Western societies that are officially trying to be “bring-your-own-beer-countries”; they do want to enforce something, which is a normless society. This means that if you actually do stand for what has traditionally been the identity of your territory, well then you must be a bad-guy. Having “no-identity” becomes the identity, in this strange, awkward case. There is no culture, there is no heritage, there is no history, there is no nothing. Only a territory that you define upon your arrival. 

Even though I’ve been writing about how important it is to respect a Nations sovereignty and identity, I have to admit that in this I’ve failed on a small-scale by sending words of comfort out to persecuted Christians who in some cases are breaking the rules of the territory that they find themselves in by possessing a Bible and/or being open about their beliefs.

I’m also failing at “bringing my own beer” into identity-less Western territories as I’ve always integrated. This though becomes an issue if you live in a territory where “a deconstruction” is taking place. It means that you are aligned with the old (what the territory used to be) rather than the new (what the territory is becoming).

This might then oddly enough transform you into a dissenter by you successfully integrating into an established identity that is being killed on purpose by whatever establishment…..

Another example of sovereignty violation is this: if environmental pollutants are to be fought against effectively it also means being “rude,” since boots on the ground will be necessary in Africa and Asia to crack down on the worst “climate-offenders;” so there goes your peace and respect for sovereignty!

I wonder sometimes if  outspoken celebrities and spokespeople truly understand the natural conclusion of what they are stating and supporting….If you are an actual eco-warrior, well then you can’t respect anyone’s Sovereignty!

Pollution is really and truly a global problem, and we in the West are not the worst offenders.

I’m mentioning this to showcase how difficult  it can be to have certain stated principles, only to realise that things might not be as easy as previously thought…

It might also be worth mentioning that global corporations can in some ways operate like “one world governments” for the simple reason that they are their own thing completely and are everywhere, regardless of Nation or Continent.

Their influence is greater than anything else I’m sure.

National Sovereignty is consistently disrespected by world leaders who initiate sanctions and/or declare war against the leadership of other Nations, who they deem unfit to rule. Hence, no respect for sovereignty, nor the enforcement of National Identity.

The reason for this is probably due to how painful it actually is to witness Nation-State enforcement of territorial identity and also (in most cases I’m guessing) how unprofitable it is if Nation States break away from unions where so-and-so is/are the decision maker/s and/or big player/s.

Back to the migration issue; people are protective of their environment because they don’t want to lose out on their resources, which is one of the reasons as to why people have trough the ages “fortified their positions.” Something that is illegal in today’s Western Europe, unless you are a member of the establishment…..

Previous enforcement of ones right to be in a territory is also why we have distinct population groups, because group such and such was not erased by being absorbed into someone else’s “thing.” Hence in order to have a Nation and secure the continuation of said Nation you actually have to exclude, which a lot of people instinctively do; but this is never going to look pretty, especially not on a large-scale, which is what I’m talking about in this entry.

This of course makes an “open world” scary since it is a dangerous illusion; nobody is really interested in being squeezed out, not even those who are initially “open and inclusive,” when all of a sudden they wake up to find out that they have become a minority and that their claim to whatever territory and influence is null and void.

Their definition of their territory that they once upon a time wanted to generously share with others, have slipped and doesn’t include them any more. They simply lost it.

(It might be an idea to note that citizenship also becomes bizarre in “an open world” since citizenship is merely a piece of paper in this case. You territory belongs to everyone, and anyone can be of your territory. The same can be said of legislation tackling digital abuse and scams online. What you get is digital-global-anarchy since a criminal operation from one Nation abusing the member of another cannot really be prosecuted. Which governing body is supposed to police human interactions over the global internet?)

There are those who clearly do not see the arrivals of large hordes of other population groups as problematic. This is precisely why the arguing becomes so ugly, because those who end up being exposed to these transformations have a tendency of being very loud and extremely upset when their home-areas change suddenly. Especially if trust breaks down and inter-racial and/or inter-ethnic violence (the targeting of those who are not part of your in-group) becomes a thing.

The same can be noted now with anti-immigration sentiments here on the continent, that would appear to be reserved for Africans and Arabs primarily, but are also extended to other European Nationalities as well, in addition to heated arguments between individuals who look just the same (due to being members of the same Nation), because of disagreements over whether or not EurAbia or EurAfrica ought to be forcefully created, regardless of the human cost in the process.

I think it can be argued with certainty that trying to unite Europeans was a challenge great enough, just like trying to unite Africa is a monumental challenge due to inter-Racial diversity.

Now it can be witnessed that it is all falling apart here in “Europe,” since it was simply “too much, too quickly, too soon.” Rather than admitting that this has all been a spectacular political failure (unless you want chaos) the political establishment in Brussels appear hellbent on forcing their vision on everyone else, regardless of whether or not people actually want this in great numbers…

Things are already getting ugly since the survival of one “ideological vision” in this case, means the destruction of the other.

The good news is: that this is how humans behave, regardless of where they might be….

Here is one case of internal dissent in Germany and a proposed solution by a French academic:

Article 13.

I’ve been seeing an information video in my feed on YouTube now for a while and finally decided to check out this whole “Article 13” business.

When reading about it here: https://www.verdict.co.uk/what-is-eu-article-13/, my first thought was that it makes it easier to navigate the “freedom of speech waters” in “Europe.”

I’m confused and so are probably tons of other people as well since freedom of speech, free flow of information and democracy is constantly being hailed as one of the reasons as to why we are so very awesome.

In the next news article or sentence though we apparently do not have freedom of speech, since there are elements who are angrily lobbying for the re-introduction of anti-blasphemy laws and establishment characters who are constantly re-defining what “hate-speech” is and isn’t.

People cannot really make up their mind if we are to live in “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe” or whether or not we are to remain “free.”

With the establishment of Article 13 as laid out in the article above there will be more clarity, so that there is no doubt that there is no such thing as “free-flow-of-information-and-opinions” in Europe, and that what was fought for by our ancestors was a total waste.

It will be the digital platform that you are using who’ll have to make sure that whatever  guidelines are followed. So then we will finally know the truth about what sort of continent we live in, rather than these murky waters where we are being lied to left-right-and-centre and aren’t quite sure what is left or right or up or down.

On the other hand it is being said by social media platforms, etc; that this is a monumental disaster when it comes to content creators. Ok I thought to myself; but this affects those who don’t own their copyright and don’t create their own material and/or use what is available to all such as classical music. Right?

Apparently this Article 13 business can be abused and stretched out to such an extent that the internet will become dull and uninteresting; cracking down on this and that…

…Such as linking to articles, which is something I often do here on my own blog in order to share information, such as my own experiences which I see reflected in other people’s experiences across Europe. I see my own story mirrored in what citizens journalists are sharing on the internet, whereas when I read the mainstream media, I’m usually not sure what the heck I’m looking at. Sharing content is what people do on Facebook as well when they share links to articles or videos that they enjoy…

Since I’m a YouTube creator and a YouTube partner, and since I’m constantly sharing online articles on my blog, I’m throwing myself on this hashtag, even though I’m not quite sure yet how this will affect my own YouTube channel and what I do as a musician. In the name of YouTube/Internet solidarity; here we go: #SaveYourInternet

 

Cellphone Usage Linked To Cancer, Cultural Enrichment in Germany, & A Friendly Reminder That Winter Is Coming!

That moment when it’s late in the evening and you think to yourself: “hey, I’m releasing a new album tomorrow & I think I need to remind my followers,” only to log into a social media account and be greeted by this:

growing pains

I guess that this falls under the category of “growing pains” in order to successfully establish EurAfrica or EurAbia or whatever they want to call the boat…

For some strange reason it brings back fond memories of an entry a wrote a while back, where I went back in time to describe why on earth I support an armed population.

You will never think about self-defence or weapons until you feel like you need them!

Just like Americans have dreams, well so do the various Nations of Europe have dreams; the people who live on this continent deserve to pursue happiness without having their paths obstructed by evil such as this: The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe.

On that note I’ll add a link to an article I saw a while back about cellphones being linked to cancer. An increasing number of young people are coming down with brain tumours. Not good, not good at all.

Beware of your phone!!!

With those things in mind I might add that I’ve been thinking lately that every generation has to deal with existential threats, the issue with today’s society is that we have been “domesticated” to such an extent as humans that we don’t necessarily see any. I somewhat touched upon our general vulnerability in this entry of mine 30 Reasons To Be Grateful And/Or Things To Look For… and hope that maybe that will alert some of my followers or others who might bump into this blog. My own foraging this year was not exactly successful, so I’m hoping that we’ll have a merciful winter, with plenty of food, water and power!

When You Try To Grow Pumpkins….

Oh yes … by the way … there is an album launch tomorrow & I’ll also be doing a LIVE stream on my YouTube channel on Friday! So see you then! Toodle-oo!

Brett Kavanaugh & The Persecution Of American Conservatives.

After watching the impassioned statement from Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh I’m seriously considering getting myself a go-pro camera & a calendar diary just in case someone jumps out of the woodwork in the future and accuse me of any wrong doing. My own CV in regards to behaviour is so squeaky clean that you would think that I’d never even been close to anything resembling rock’n’roll, yet in the light of the methods that are being used to get rid of Christians, Conservatives or anyone who opposes the culture war and political war that is currently unfolding on both sides of the Atlantic, you evidently have to be prepared for anything coming your way, whether you write/report, create, run for office or engage in charitable efforts…

In one of my unpublished entries that I’m currently working on I compare the current political drama in the U.S.A. to a circus. The behaviour is so unhinged and desperate that it becomes hard not to laugh despite all the tragedy; for a circus it certainly is when high school yearbooks and the likes are being scanned for any kind of damning evidence. The next level would be to go after people’s kindergarten records.

All I have to say is: 1 – what a mess.

And: 2 – what a fine display of human “rationality.”

In addition I’ve also received a couple of very troubling emails depicting the treatment of conservatives across the pond. (The highlights are my doing). 

“The film was crowd funded on Indiegogo by over 29,000 people, who gave over $2.3mm to make sure this story was told. It’s an uplifting story of justice and the men and women in law enforcement who helped bring Kermit Gosnell to trial. While taking a hard look at the facts, the movie is not graphic or explicit. It’s rated PG-13 and is appropriate for teenagers. If you can handle an episode of Law & Order or NCIS you can see Gosnell.

The film has faced opposition from the very beginning when Kickstarter kicked the campaign off their platform. It aced opposition in the production of the film. And recently NPR refused to run advertising describing Kermit Gosnell as an abortion. See the movie that shines a light on a story the mainstream media refused to cover.” – Taken from an email reg. a movie that has been made about an abortion Doctor in America.

“Dear Fellow Patriot,

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Facebook and Twitter’s efforts to silence conservatives, but that’s was just the tip of the iceberg.

Just last month, MasterCard colluded with the Southern Poverty Law Center and other left-wing fringe organizations to shut down my Freedom Center’s online fundraising without so much as a warning.

The Southern Poverty Law Center blacklisted my organization as a “hate group” because we dare question the Left’s agenda, and now big finance is using this bogus label to come after us.

Shortly after MasterCard launched this crippling attack, Discover Card came after us. And now, I have no choice but to take these credit card processors to court.

Because this isn’t about me. This is about you and your free speech. The Left doesn’t care if you’re a politician, a pundit or a plumber — if you don’t embrace their radical agenda, they want to destroy you.

I’ll be honest — the legal fees are steep. But a generous donor has pledged to match all donations between now and September 30th. So anything you give today will have double the impact.”Taken from an email reg. Armed Forces Connect & David Horowitz Freedom Centre.

 

I guess the best thing to do is to voice your support, pray, and aid people financially if you are in a position to do so.

To be honest I don’t like the visible political division and hostility, it’s sad and very much troubling. Yet after watching some short Twitter clips the other day, my bet is that things are only going to get worse. The line between ganging up on a person hurling insults vs. ganging up on a person to physically assault them is not very long; at least that’s what I’m thinking.

The aim of those on the opposite political spectrum is silly as well since you’ll always have diversity of opinion. Even if you were to go after everyone who disagrees with you, there is no guarantee that your very own child will grow up to become just like you or that your best-friend and comrade will remain in the exact same political or spiritual camp for the entirety of their lives.

The fight is futile; but I guess the other side is strong in the faith, even though they don’t know that they have one……….

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

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  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. 
  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. 
  10. Glass bottles & other non-contaminated food and drink containers. 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. 
  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. 
  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! 😮 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. 
  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 “bææææ” 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!
