Having A Raison D’รชtre & An End Game.

Standard

When reading about the Iraq war last year I was stunned to see the willingness to sacrifice the integrity of Europe on the altar of momentary territorial access needed in order to get into Iraq.

โ€œPlan Of Attackโ€ by Bob Woodward.

โ€œDecision Pointsโ€ by George W. Bush.

I was further mystified by the fact that 4-star Army General (ret.)ย Colin Powell came across as the one lone voice of reason, since he tried to raise awareness of tribalism and ethnic diversity in the targeted area.

The reading certainly gave me the impression that humans are simply being seen as replaceable cogs in the machinery by the establishment.

Culture and ethnicity simply doesn’t matter, it is all about momentary victory, without any overarching solid narrative selling a clearly defined End Game, that will be reached by many separate actions all serving the same underlying objective.

This is a startling realisation.

When reading “The Art Of War” I was surprised about what sort of advice it contained. Prolonged warfare with no end in sight is depicted as one of the worst projects that a Nation can ever engage in. A group that engages in warfare also have to ensure that they have access to an efficient supply line, taking advantage of whatever resources the group can get their hands on as they expand into a territory. A war effort should be swift and precise, without too much meddling from sovereigns located far away. The people who are on the ground need to be able to do what is necessary to reach their goal in a completely mobilised way, to the extent that this is possible.

All of this certainly made me question the sort of warfare that people my age have grown accustomed to. All of our Nations’ war efforts seem concentrated in “alien territories,” fighting and training “aliens” that might turn on the West later, and all of our Nations’ major war efforts seemingly drag out for ever…

No proper end game that logically makes sense is ever presented to the public and when getting an insight into the world of those who run these things, it doesn’t really seem like these characters know what the deal is either (unless a battle ground is simply needed in order to train soldiers and test new equipment).

Warriors & Citizens โ€“ American Views of Our Military edited by Kori Schake & Jim Mattis.

A parallel can be drawn to hacker activists, who don’t seem too concerned with allies. They’ll attack an enemy of the West one day only to target Western political and military structures the next, potentially jeopardising the integrity and safety of a Nation State or its military operations.

When reading about community organisers you see this pattern of behaviour once again. ย A lot of left-wing activism simply cancels itself out, since the only common denominator seems to be emotionalism. Due to this you’ll get contradicting agitation and advocacy that will leave someone like myself slightly confused, as there is no End Game in sight anywhere.

If you look at Islamic agitation in Europe it is very easy to understand what their End Game and overarching goal is. They engage in demographic expansionism into Europe, which gradually gives them a political advantage. Wealthy Muslim power-players buy themselves into Western Corporations which gives them cultural influence and leverage. Street-level Muslims carve out their own territories and then defend these. Mosques are erected further cementing a claim to a specific territory boosting confidence, while a romanticized fantasy of Islamic Imperialism, appealing to people’s sense of identity and innate penchant for ancestry-worship, is promoted. Of course, as always, not all. But you don’t need every member of a specific group to behave in this particular fashion for it to have its desired effect. My impression of European Islamification is that there is a long-term vision, coupled with a willingness to commit to certain behaviours, in order to eventually reach a clearly defined outcome: Nation States that become compatible in their policies and in their cultures with the Muslim faith, preferably paving the way for a new “Golden-Age.” Of course it is of importance to point out the ethnic and racial diversity within Islam, and that there are numerous conflicting denominations within the faith as well.ย As an example: we can now clearly observe, imported tribal disagreements and feuds, in Europe, in addition to all of our own inter-ethnic issues that we had from before….

Inter-ethnic dissonance is very prevalent in Africa;ย which is generally referred to as the most diverse continent on the surface of the earth.

So what can be said of the West? What is our End Game? What can be observed and what conclusions can be drawn?ย 

What would make sense, instinctively, ย would be to have common ancestry as the glue holding Europe together. Race has become way more inclusive than what it used to be, since we now largely see Race as something observable, while ethnic groups give us what has become our European Nation States, with its specific cultures and characteristics. ย Back in the day these used to be chopped up into various tribes that probably displayed a lot of similar traits to one another, hence our generalisation regarding population groups contained within the boundaries of the modern Nation State: an extended family sharing common ancestry and a similar distribution of genetic traits on average.

It would make sense if our Nation States in Europe concerned themselves with the protection of our shared and individual cultural heritage, doing everything to ensure the survival and majority status of white children (and mixed whites) in the only territory that actually belongs a 100% to whites, protecting our continent’s borders and integrity.

A strong unified Europe and more broadly speaking, a strong unified West with the more multi-racial configurations found within territories conquered by whites, would in theory make sense.

Is this an End Game for what is collectively known as The West though? No.

This would be a racist objective. It would insinuate that Ethnic-Europeans have a natural claim to a specific territory and that conquest is a legitimate way to establish a Nation, which is what a white presence in all other territories other than Europe is a result of. (To my knowledge … It certainly looks that way when observing strange geographic settlements by Whites and the presence of dark-skinned indigenous groups).

The prevalent mythos championed in the West is this:

  1. that all other groups are minorities, even if Europe looks very small when compared to other continents, and we are outnumbered globally speaking.
  2. That the magic soil theory is truth, meaning that you’ll automatically become ย Swedish by simply breathing the air in Sweden.
  3. That all human beings are born equal due to a blank slate, and that genetics simply don’t exist.
  4. That talking about genetics and genuine diversity is dangerous because that will instantly turn you into Hitler and result in a new Holocaust.
  5. That it makes sense to celebrate white ethnic groups becoming minorities, after years of civil-rights battles in the U.S.A. to ensure equal opportunity regardless of skin colour, and after years of Whites trying to do good towards previously marginalised and abused non-white minority groups within their domains. Not to forget: the constant focus on the challenges faced by so-called (and genuine) minorities within traditionally White-majority constructs. None of this paints minority-status in an appealing light … yet we should do everything in our power to lay the groundwork for our own marginalisation…. which is particularly interesting when reading about the merciless brutality in other parts of the world perpetrated by non-white majorities…
  6. That previous white expansionism will just be forgotten, since Whites have decided to “play nice,” which means that we no longer have any enemies and don’t really need any borders….
  7. That only white ethnic groups can be guilty of racism and imperialistic activity.
  8. That white ethnic groups are not under any circumstance “indigenous” and that there will at no point be any need to give any white demographic the status of “protected group.”
  9. That race and/or ethnicity is only real and only counts if/when dealing with “indigenous people,” who can under no circumstance be white. These “indigenous” groups are also the only ones entitled to certain territories that have to be protected in order to ensure their survival.
  10. That charity is only needed in the 3rd world as it is probably your own fault if you are poor and hungry in the superior, egalitarian, socialist inspired constructs that make up the Western World.
  11. That you have to import workers from Africa and The Middle East, rather than employing individuals from territories closer to your own, or within your own continent.
  12. That mixing on a massive scale is always peaceful and not the result of violent demographic change or militant conquest.
  13. That re-writing history and engaging in gas-lighting on a National and/or Continental level is perfectly alright in order to salvage vanity projects initiated by international organisations, that might look good on paper and in theory; until inserting the human factor into the equation actually implementing the idea.

Ok. So this doesn’t look too promising. Then what about Christianity? This is multi-racial, multiethnic and global. It is way more inclusive and has been used as a unifying factor in Europe before…

The West has continuously acted as an enemy to Christian groups in the Middle East, facilitating genocidal persecution of genuine Christian minority tribes. Western governments not only promote the build-down of Christianity within Europe and all other territories under White influence, they actively side with Nations and regimes known for violent Christian persecution.

What about human-rights, enlightenment ideas, world peace and the “human race”?

Western governments have repeatedly sided with regimes guilty of outrageous human rights abuses, making themselves guilty of gross hypocrisy since human rights and the protection of humanity as a whole has become the main narrative and general raison d’รชtre of Western groups.

Portraying oneself as a defender of the human race also becomes tricky as you cannot possible go out there and claim that population group A needs more protection and privileges than population group B as this would be racist and undermine universal rights. And how on earth can you even say population group A and B when race/ethnicity isn’t even real? You cannot say that religious group A is more guilty of persecution than religious group B, because why would religious group B be more righteous or in need of more protection than the other? Are you a bigot or what?

Who are you to say that Terrorists don’t have rights or don’t have a point, when you claim to be a defender of all of humanity? And how on earth do you even define a “War on Terror” or “Terrorists”? Any person or group could fall into this category when nothing is specified.

These kind of points can be spinned indefinitely putting The West in a situation where none of its actions can be seen as righteous and/or legitimate.

It opens up the door for a potential legal, moral and PR nightmare where The West and its natural inhabitants never win.

It also puts Western Nation states in a situation where an enemy cannot be clearly defined, at least not in public, due to important exotic alliances and potential diplomatic disasters. By relying on exotic alliances for abstract military operations, the West paints ย itself into a corner, where they cannot kick out subversive elements within their own nations if these stem from their good “friends and allies.”

The West is forced into a position where it cannot really look after the interests of its own inhabitants, nor enforce the heritage and integrity of itself.

Not to forget that The West is put into an incredibly awkward situation when Western leaders cannot clearly formulate anything, if interested in maintaining good international relationships.

This results in cringe worthy narratives that leaves all of those who don’t just parrot our “modern shared values” confused and puzzled. What are we all about really? Does anyone know?

What about Capitalism then? A support for this must surely be a constant factor from The Americans at least?ย 

No. Think again. The U.S.A. is willing to tolerate oppressive communist regimes that in the long run pose a threat to the American experiment and their global influence, as long as the U.S.A. can gain from such an alliance in the short run.

So what is The End Game of The West?ย 

Strangely and worryingly enough there doesn’t seem to be one……

At best it can be argued that there are forces within The West championing stability trough whatever means by expanding the police state and surveillance of their own citizens. This though is worked against by leaders who don’t want to acknowledge the effects of demographic change. In addition it facilitates the very form of governance that Western Nations are outspokenly against, not to forget that the identity destruction currently happening in The Western world work against any conservation efforts intended to protect our cultural and ethnic inheritance, while simultaneously compromising stability and security; in short, all of it compromises the survival of those people who occupy the territories that we collectively refer to as The West.

Preview of an important article, linked to further down in my entry:

“Overall, the researchers found that about 76 percent of the effect of ethnicity on DNA methylation could be accounted for by controlling for genetic ancestry”

“But the new data showing that a large fraction of epigenetic signatures of ethnicity reflect something other than ancestry suggests that abandoning the idea of race and ethnicity altogether could sacrifice a lot of valuable information about the drivers of differences in health and disease between different communities.

Like a standard family history, ethnicity is association with disease for both genetic and environmental reasons,” Zaitlen said. “If your dad or mom had a heart attack, that tells doctors a lot about your risk for a heart attack. Part of that is genetic, but part of it is that your lifestyle is influenced heavily by your parents’ lifestyle. Your ethnic group is like a much bigger family — it’s partly a matter of genetics, but it also reflects the environment of your broader community.”

Denmark’s integration and immigration minister declares that “we’ve lost to Islam,” due to the violence that always ensues whenever the religion is criticised or made fun of. She points out how making a theatre play mocking “the Mormons” can happen without violent protests and agitation, while few dare to print the Mohammad cartoons in Europe today. This obviously results in Islam getting special treatment in the West, not because we respect it or see it as true, but due to the violence perpetrated by its most feverish practitioners. This happens in our part of the world, where we constantly praise the importance of “freedom of speech,” and our liberal values … Our continent also has a history of standing up to Islamic expansionism, so the current situation can at best be described as remarkable. Political, expansionist Islam, and Holy Islamic Warriors are not supposed to be our problem.

Social Media is addictive and canย ruin your kids.ย Former Apple, Google and Facebook employees are sounding the alarm, stating that apps are designed “to get people hooked,” to paraphrase.

I’ve previously expressed my concern regardingย micro plastics, and I’m doing what I can to help where I live. I’ve come across some new information about the topic, some good news and some really bad.

What’s uplifting to know is that there is an initiative in the works to clean up the oceans, thanks to an invention by a young-punk originally from Croatia, but with Dutch citizenship, who has taken matters into his own hands startingย this company.ย Funny enough I noticed yesterday that some of my online contacts have already been sharing material about “The Ocean Cleanup” so I guess I’m late in hearing about this. Nevertheless this is precisely the sort of “individualism” and “innovation” our societies need, not only does it inspire hope, it also brings people together to solve one of the greatest threats we stand face to face with in our age. On their site they are looking for people to join their team and to contribute, check them out or share their posts! This is cool stuff!

On the other hand; it is equally important to spread the news that plastics/emballage is even more dangerous than a lot of us have probably known. The chemicals contained within our packaging leaks into our food! The health consequences are astonishing and contribute to the “fertility” problem we are currently facing among males in Europe, the side effects are equally alarming for women. Plastic bottles, tin cans, receipts from the store, it is everywhere…If you are concerned about what you put on your skin as well, then check out this entry of mine: “Skin Care. Red Flag Alert.

Quote from original article:

“Children and pregnant women are particularly susceptible to damage from ingesting the BPA chemical because they have vast amounts of growth and developmental hormones coursing through their bodies.

Worryingly, researchers have made strong associations between exposure to BPA when we are young and changes in behaviour, including disrupted brain development in children, along with increased probability of childhood asthma.

That said, the impact of early exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals like BPA may not become apparent until much later in life. It can even affect future generations because it can have a damaging effect on female reproduction, and has the potential to affect male reproductive systems. A large number of scientific studies have associated BPA with numerous health problems including early puberty, obesity, infertility, the inhibition of insulin, hyperactivity and learning disabilities. It has also been connected to a possible increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Normally, if we were aware something could pose such a threat to our health, we would go to great lengths to avoid it. But BPA is so ubiquitous that thatโ€™s virtually impossible.

Researchers surmise that people all over the world of all ages are likely to have a measurable amount of BPA in their blood, urine or body tissue. Several government studies have detected BPA in large portions of the population, including 93 per cent of the US population aged six and older, and 99 per cent of the population in Germany aged 3-14. This new study into the high number of teenagers with BPA in their digestive system serves only to underscore that concern.”

An astonishing admission published by a mainstream media outlet. One can only hope that truth will cease to be seen as inappropriate in our part of the world, as this mentality is not helping us in any kind of way. I’ve been guilty of sharing articles on this blog from one Asian scientist in particular, who unapologetically research the various frequencies in traits among different populations. A very interesting topic indeed, unless you’re in denial over genuine diversity. After all it is the plethora and variance of life that makes this planet so very intriguing, but alas. Hopefully there will be more articles publishedย like this.ย *Applause* Applause* A sigh of relief *

“three-quarters of the epigenetic difference between the two ethnic subgroups could be accounted for by differences in the children’s genetic ancestry. The rest of the epigenetic differences, the authors suggest, may reflect a biological stamp made by the different experiences, practices, and environmental exposures distinct to the two ethnic subgroups.”

“Researchers and clinicians have known for many years that different racial and ethnic populations get diseases at different rates, respond differently to medications, and show very different results on standard clinical tests: “For a whole range of medical tests, whether your physician is told that your lab result is normal or abnormal depends entirely on the race/ethnicity box that you tick on an intake form,” Zaitlen said.”

My deepest sympathies goes out toย Lana Del Rey.ย Not cool.

The author of this article completely forgets to credit Christian values and influence when alluding to the philanthropy of the past. It is a funny read nonetheless.

I’m spiritual yes, but this article is nothing short of disturbing in my opinion. Of all the kids I was exposed to as little and out of all of the various individuals I’ve run into, there have been very few who’ve ever fallen into the category of being genuinely gay/differently oriented. There was never any doubt in my mind however that these few individuals “were born this way,” this is especially noticeable when encountering a kid who obviously has the “wrong” gender. This is a rarity to run into.ย It is also crucial to note, that chemicals can potentially alter our preferences and identities to a certain extent, which I’ve mentioned previously. If you mess around with a person’s hormones before/during puberty you are playing with fire and run the risk of someone “becoming another gender,” or in other words: becoming confused and “ruined” from a traditional (and probably also medical) perspective. So regardless of how you look at it, it is obvious that once the change has happened, whether in the womb or outside, there is no going back. (I base this opinion on individuals who were injected with hormones and all of a sudden started “identifying” as something else, even in one case having a gender-altering-operation, from what I’ve gathered).

I find it astonishing that there would be people out there believing that so-called conversion therapy can have any effect at all whatsoever. It seems clear that it only ruins people, much like messing around with hormones. It is also obvious that a blank-slate theory has to be in place for people to believe in this. Nobody who understands heritability or genetics, even if only scratching the surface of it, would ever believe in the absurdity of a blank slate. It is so out-of-date that is beggars belief that this myth is still around. If people are so concerned with fighting gayness, they would have to do that on a genetic level, and of course in that case you’ll always have the question of ethics. There are people who will not abort babies with downs because they value all life. I’ve seen a video of a man with Downs protecting his right to life. It is heartbreaking hearing people protecting their right to existence, arguing against those who want to permanently remove them from our midst.

Last time I checked eugenics as practised by the Nazis is seen as a dark chapter in our history, ironically enough it can be argued that it never went out of practise, but that it rather changed “character.” I heard a heart-breaking story of how a woman was advised to abort her pregnancy by her doctor, due to the genes of her offspring; the doctor claimed that the baby had certain traits commonly found within the prison population and that the child would probably become problematic in the future, posing a potential threat. Due to the mother’s old age, she was advised to get rid of the child, since he would have been “too much to handle for her.” These type of practises happens in this day and age, in our “tolerant” and “loving” societies, full of “acceptance” and “equality.”

Apparently there shouldn’t be equality for all when it comes to the right to life. An interesting thing to think about … especially when taking into consideration that people displaying psychopathic traits don’t necessarily end up being a menace to society. There are functional individuals out there with internal and external dysfunctions, in fact, I wonder how many individuals we are potentially looking at removing prematurely, when considering how widespread minor and major quirks are. The amount of individuals suffering from mental health issues, as I’ve also written about before, is predicted to increase. The older you get the more you increase the risk of a hitting the wall mentally as well due to negative life-experiences. So I wonder if modern eugenicists are thinking much about all of this? You’ll have no people left in the end…Unless we are to finalize the ubermensch fantasy with our new tech….and how will that play out?

The latest from the political correctness brigade & our post-modern culture:

The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation are receiving complaints after an online show was aired where participants drank their own urine and made omelettes out of vomit which they then ate. (I couldn’t even watch the footage in this article). Ironically enough the NRK stated that “their aim is to create content that can appeal to the YouTube generation,” to paraphrase. So I guess that says an awful lot about what people think of young people and their interests … Many years ago I sounded the alarm after hearing from peers in Norway that they had baked cakes with vomit and served it to their teachers and principal… My warning was not listened to, as I guess it was uncomfortable to hear this. In fact I don’t think my complaint ever reached the principal. So maybe it isn’t strange that NRK would broadcast what they did……

More political correctness coming from Sweden.ย Swedish Males to contemplate their own white privilege….

Sweden appointsย Pakistani Muslim Head of National Heritage Board.ย  Norwegians have always made jokes about Swedes being stupid, I always took this for friendly bantering … now I’m not so sure anymore … Scandinavian countries are constantly depicted as bastions of well-functioning liberalism … enough said.

Political correctness working retroactively … if you ever wanted a reason for not creating then check out these party-poopers. Makes me think of Tim Burton coming under fire due to his casting preferences.ย Lame.

A high school in America cancelled the screening of the legendary movie “Cool Runnings” since it was deemed politically incorrect … ย I’ve seen it several times in the past and it depicts a Jamaican Bobsled Team kicking ass. I guess this is offensive….

Why is Liberal California the poverty capital of America?

These are some really bad undercover videos revealing a high school teacher’s absolute contempt for theย U.S. Military. This is not good at all. One thing is to disagree with what the civilian leadership might be up to, but this portrayal of Military men as idiots is not only inaccurate it is also incredibly ungrateful. I feel for the young man who was singled out and made fun of in front of his entire class. If this is how the future of the U.S. Military is to be treated by the civilian population; picked on and singled out for mockery, then don’t expect much of a future. It is also important to add, that the UK Army are apparently experiencing a recruitment crisis….It is quite obvious that our Western Civilisation is struggling, on both sides of the Atlantic.ย

Silly argument, but a very funny acronym: “Preventing Allocation of Resources for Absurd Defense Expenditures

Vice President Mike Pence apparently needs to learn what American values are :ย I wonder if I’m a hero for coming out as straight?

More people hating on retired Marine General, now White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly. Quote from the author: “White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has just about shed his previous identity of presidential babysitter and taken on his final form, โ€œjust another bigoted Trump Administration loose cannon.โ€ With his comments earlier this week calling Dreamers โ€œlazy,โ€ Kelly finally alienated the last remaining supporters he may have had amongst functional, literate Americans.

The migration crisis is for the European governments to tackle, yet it doesn’t seem like things are looking too bright, with NGOs and criminal gangs active in this seemingly never-ending drama. In the name of charity many will argue that we should take in lots of people, but when witnessing the mess (inability to look after migrants properly, crime, failed integration and costs, etc;) it would be irresponsible to support such things on a grand scale. There are more sensible politicians for example who’ve expressed a desire to help people where they are, since it is unsustainable to continue the practise of Lebensraum for Africans and Arabs into already settled (in many cases over-crowded) European territories.

Oh How You’ve Failed Us With Your “Fine” Ideas.

To read what inspired me to write this entryย read here.

Or here.ย Orย here.

I’ve been thinking for a while that we’ll probably miss these post-WW2 years, where all that could be sensed by those my age at least were the signs of a diseased society and the visible fractures in our constructs mercilessly reminding us of our former glorious splendour.

Observing the political landscape here in England these last days has reserved as a reminder, and a confirmation, as to how our institutions have fallen, and when reading this article that I just came across, it is obvious that the symptoms of continental societal illness are visible and clear to some.

I think we’ll miss those years from 1989 when the wall fell, and up until one specific event in the near future which will be of such magnitude that it will symbolically be the last nail in the coffin for the current European Utopia.

What our leadership leaves behind to people my age and younger are disputed territories, identity confusion, seemingly weak military constructs, outsourced labour, poor infrastructure, crumbling healthcare and lots of debt … in other words – nothing short of chaos. God only knows what will be raised in its stead, because the political visions will surely be many and radically diverse.

Some lessons can be learnt from Europe:

1-Do not mass import people from alien cultures.
2-Do not allow people in from countries you’ve bombed or occupied.
3-Never take loyalty for granted from the son if the immigrant father loves your country. Loyalty to identity and ancestry cannot be bought indefinitely.
4-Do not expect people to sell out their values for government benefits, after all, are you really so cheap that you would sell your beliefs for a BMW?
5-Do not allow people into power who prioritize other citizens over their own.
6-Never allow benefits to become the greatest financial burden of the state.
7-Be clear when it comes to the identity and configuration of your country and nation.
8-Do not forget the founders of your nation and those who died to protect it and build it.
9-Do not allow parallel societies to be established as it will only lead to trouble.
10-If you are to create a Union then create it between strong, independent, sovereign, nations, so that the stronger ones won’t be weakened by the poorer ones, or the weaker ones walked all over by the stronger ones. As both scenarios will sow resentment.
11-The number one duty of a government is to ensure military protection for its citizens.
12-Never de-militarize your society as it will render your country weak from the inside out alienating those willing to serve from the rest of the population.
13-Never create a national culture of guilt.
14-There are no such things as progressive policies, only good and bad ones, and sometimes the good ones are old and tried recipes which have stood the test of time.
15-Do not allow your nation to become a vassal state.
16-Do not allow your nation to be mismanaged for decades as it will probably take even longer to sort it all out.
17-Disrespect will grow if you espouse illegitimate or fake authority.
18-Everyone has to be equal under the law and the law has to be sensible.
19-If you allow one ethnic group to get away with things, do not expect that those who are “easy to police” will remain so for much longer.
20-Make an example out of those who stand for poor leadership – and remember that leadership has nothing to do with being “nice to all” or saying what is “politically correct.”
21-Do not let the roles in your society slip to such an extent that normal citizens have to take on the role as journalists and writers.
22-If the media are acting as tools for propaganda, let it at least be known and legally challenged with opposing propaganda.

Some articles of interest:

  1. This is actually a very important read, not necessarily because I’m against the idea of having “stay-behind-troops” (this is a good thing to have in place) nor that I’m against “anti-communist-measures” but it is the idea that is of interest here. Who stand to benefit from the weakening and downfall of your nation? And at the end of the day:ย who is really responsible?ย Is an attack only just that? Is it disguised targeting masked as random acts of terror? And why would you believe those who take official credit? Where does the funding come from if it can be traced?
  2. Word of mouth has it that Norway already has “Swedish Conditions” in certain areas. I also wrote a little while ago that our government had to agree to over 2.000 new quota-refugees in 2018. Stillย this interview with our immigration & integration minister is interesting.
  3. Dire news regardingย England’s Police.ย Unbelievable both the downsizing and how the funds are being spent. Some months ago I read in an “analogue newspaper” that an ex-police chief was lamenting the current priorities of our police force, such as political correctness training and “bring all of you to work day” (to paraphrase). A transgender friendly initiative/day.
  4. Officially it ย is said that this film is from the UK, it certainly looks like it. I’ve seen similar footage across social media from Birmingham and other areas in this country. I’ve also driven through neighbourhoods like this around London and other places in Europe.ย The New-Europe. ย Not to forget what I’ve seenย myself.
  5. People smugglers have an easy time in the UK as Border Patrol is suffering from budget cuts leaving the coastline open and vulnerable … incredible. There were people in 2016 who were calling for the resurrection of the “Home Guard,” what I find interesting is this quote that I found in a Wikipedia article about General Sir Anthonyย Heritage Farrar-Hockley recently: He declared to The Guardian that a secret arms network was established in Britain after the war, but refused to say if it still existed. He aroused controversy in 1983 when he became involved trying to organise a campaign for a new home guard against possible Soviet invasion and in 1990, following Italian Prime minister Giulio Andreotti’s October 1990 revelations concerning Operation Gladio, a NATO stay-behind network, he revealed that the armed anti-communist secret resistance network across western European had involved Britain.[1][5]. I have no idea why any of this would be controversial, especially the revival of the Home Guard? Why would this be looked upon as weird? Why??????????
  6. ย A sanction only works if there are noย back doors right? That’s what I’m thinking anyway. The Turkish leadership is problematic and their desire for EU membership certainly is as well. The size of their force is not good either. They represent a danger to Europe; not that this is something new. The amount of Turks within European nations as well pose a risk, demonstrated by Erdogan’s recent political agitation, which I wrote about somewhere on this blog ๐Ÿ˜› It’s easy to find articles about this anyway…..
  7. Norway has to rent military equipment, sarcastic politicians wonder if we’ll have to rent soldiers as well since theย Norwegian military has seen better days.
  8. The author of this article refers to it as provocative behaviour when right-wing activists march through English territory inhabited by Muslims and/or other alien immigrants, as we apparently should consider these zones to be theirs. I assume that we should consider these places lost and keep out of them? What do we do when they inevitably expand? Should Ethnic Britons and other European ethnic groups simply abandon the island, so as to not offend the aliens? The author also has the audacity to claim that you are part of a european ethnic group as long as you’re born here to immigrant parents. A direct assault on ethnic Europeans and our distinct populations, once again. This is a blatant lie. There are races, then there are ethnicities, then you got differences within your ethnic group partly or maybe entirely (?) as a result of your distribution through your own territory, and finally you have individual differences. And there might even be more variances. The fact that the claims in this article are supposed to be accepted as canon isย bogus.ย Feel free to read my “How To Be Evil In 2017.,”entry or myย Identity.ย entry or myย Diversity โ€“ Why It Is A Complex Issue.ย entry or thisย Acid Attacks & Diversity In The UK.

I will share more articles and translate more horrible news articles from Scandinavia. There is one shocking story in particular from Sweden, that illustrates how rape is being used as a weapon against Ethnic European women.

Whatever that is left of the European spirit cannot be allowed to die. If everyone loses faith in Europe we are officially done; and by Europe I mean all of our individual nation states and their distinct European ethnic groups. Our shared and individual heritage is ours and we can not let it go. If we don’t care about our cultures anymore, then why should anyone else? Love your country, love your people, know your history, or you’ll perish.

The European Utopia Vol. MMCCCLLVVVIIIIIIIIIII

Standard

Me: I’m going to take a break from writing about the state of affairs in Europe, it’s not like everybody cares about what’s happening over here, those who know keep an eye on things anyway, and after all, I’ve said enough.

Just some days later: Shit a homemade “bomb” went off! Watch out!

Me: I’ve written enough about this. It’s probably only going to get me into trouble. I’m done.

Some days later: Oh my God look at this!

Me: Totally done now. I’m making my blog private.

Some hours later: Nah…can’t really do that. Maybe I’ll ย save someone’s life if I don’t.

Me: It’s boring to sound like a broken record, there are more things in this world to write about, like srsly.

Sun 19. Nov. 2017 – Oh whatever, here we go again….

So … I was in Norway last week and guess what I just found out? More violence and fragmentation in Europe, and this time it happened right in the area where I was. How glorious….as I’ve already described there were visible changes to the environment which I observed and wrote about, but I had no idea that the area had upgraded to racial/ethnic violence. This hits just as close to home as the attack down in Nice. If things escalate like this I guess it will be highly likely that at least one of your relatives will be affected in the coming years, if your family and acquaintances are spread around the continent and/or live in culturally enriched areas. Keep in mind that these territories are expanding, and that “safe zones” aren’t safe, unless gated and/or guarded. *Don’t forget*

So as the geeky person I am. Why not translate this articleย into English? Yes, here we go:

Around 30 immigrant boys attacked handball boys.

Around 30 youths of immigrant background attacked boys from the handball team from Kolbotn without any motive. The police have received several complaints.ย 

It was on a Saturday a week ago, 11. November, that a youth gang numbering around 30 provoked to create trouble on Kolbotn Market. There they allegedly hit and kicked several other boys without any motive.

The media kept their silence.ย Until now, probably because the police have received several complaints after the incident. But even though (ร˜B) reported on the case on the 17th of November – behind a subscription wall, just so you know – the newspaper seem unwilling to share concrete information and none of those involved, or their parents, have been interviewed.

“Brawl between youths in Kolbotn and Ski”

ร˜B quotesย John-Erik Veseth, the leader of the pre-emptive unit East Police department Follo, as saying “From what we’ve unravelled from the investigation so far, we’re getting closer to these people.”

The timeline of events is described as follows: A gang of around 30 youngsters have allegedly been behind several attacks on other youths around the centre of Kolbotn. The first complaint about trouble came from a private residence, where some youths were gathered for a party, right outside the town centre right before seven o’clock on Saturday evening. There were also two adults in the home, and they reported on the uninvited guests who interrupted the gathering, but said that they had control over the situation.

After this the youth-gang allegedly moved towards the centre of Kolbotn. “Here they just started physically attacking other youngsters who happened to be in town, among them the members of a young sports team who were out to celebrate with their fellow handball players.”

It is further said that ” the Follo-Police have received 5 reports about violence after the gang ran amok in the town centre. All of the reports concern boys under 18 of age. One of the reports concern a 16 year old from Ski who was punched.” It is also said that the police were first told that “the gang took the train from Kolbotn to Ski after the raucous in Kolbotn centre, but this has proven to be false.”

But several things seem to suggest that the situation is way worse than what ร˜B are reporting.

High immigrant youths who kicked, punched and threatened.ย 

After the handball-boys in the age group 14-16 had eaten pizza and been to the cinema over in Kolbotn, which finished around 8 o’clock, they were greeted by a boy-gang of around 30 individuals, also in the age group 14-16, who were looking for trouble.

It is told that the boys were dark-skinned, were wearing hoodies and had covered their faces. The boys were perceived as being intoxicated. Some of the handball boys were trying to get away, but some were caught by the attackers.ย 

The boys who were kept behind were in the receiving end of direct violence such as kicks and punches. In addition there were several others who were threatened and ran after.ย 

Those of the handball boys who managed to escape called their parents, who in their turn contacted the police.

The police are looking for more information, according to ร˜B. That is interesting, considering that the media first reported on the incident a week after it happened. And then as if tough we are just talking about a simple “brawl” between teens.

Hmmm….sounds like Chicago or L.A. to me. I seem to recall young boys who I knew back then were plotting to start a “UN gang” to protect themselves against unprovoked attacks from a certain demographic. Hmm … how peculiar. Why on earth would people want to protect themselves against racist assaults? I have no clue….these handball boys were probably fascists. It’s all a conspiracy I bet…..

 

Coaching & Judging on the TV Show “Stjernekamp” once again!

Standard

Without a doubt the highlight of an extremely lame year.

I was asked if I would be interested in partaking in Norway’s Nr.1 Saturday Night TV Show this spring and got the call as I was biking on the French Riviera trying to forget my injured shoulder and poor overall health.

The offer was certainly a ray of light after a terrible start to the year where everything that could go wrong certainly did. As always silence and secrecy was demanded as is the case with serious music industry projects, so as the 007 that I am I didn’t reveal to anyone that I was going to Norway until some days prior and once I went I didn’t reveal to anyone what I was doing until I started promoting the Show on Social Media.

I brought my brother with me as I wasn’t particularly keen on travelling by myself for several reasons. First of all it was my health, second of all it was my security. I’ve had way too much time on my hands this year to read through way too much unflattering material about the current state of affairs in Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. As a petite, unarmed, female I wanted a chaperone.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this. When did Europeans all of a sudden need these type of instructions? Absolutely ridiculous. Makes me think of this idiotic sign over in London :

IMG_7616

IMG_4289

I found several typos in SAS’s inflight magazine ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The things I see…

IMG_4294

Yummy! The first thing I ate after landing in Norway ๐Ÿ˜› Yum – yum!!!

That being said I contemplated temporarily making my blog private before I set out to travel since the entertainment industry appears to be extremely far-left-leaning, at least that’s the general impression, and after all, maybe things aren’t really that bad in Europe. It might be Russian propaganda … at least it is according to Angela Merkel …

I made the decision to let it all stand in case my flight crashed since I’ve posted what I’ve posted in order to warn and help other people. When I found myself on the train leaving Oslo International Airport I certainly felt that I had done the right thing as a ridiculous news story broke of how American tourists had been attacked with acid in Marseille. Why oh why any white person would go into that part of France baffles me, since it was commonly known as a territory you avoided 15 years ago when I lived in Southern France … I was one of the first bloggers out there to share articles about the current Acid-epidemic in England the second that these stories were shared by the mainstream media, as a result I’ve had lots of readers checking out those entries, and it has increased, as the new Acid-reality has become part of everyday life. The most dangerous areas in London are predominantly non-English territories; the most common victims are white men. Apparently it has all grown from there, turning petty criminals into Acid-attackers since it is an effective way to mug people…These are things that tourists need to know!ย ย Acid Attacks In The UK.

After seeing more news of cultural enrichment we switched to a bus which took us right past a brand ย new looking Mega-Mosque that appeared out of nowhere and looked completely out-of-place in Norway, we were then greeted by a young Norwegian relative who updated us on life in the New-Norway, confirming all of our worst expectations, aligning perfectly with what I’ve observed myself in England and France, what I’ve heard from others, and also what I’ve read online … ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

There is simply no escape from the New-Europe. Not even an innocent show-biz trip to Norway can shield you from the new reality. Not-even-that.

Yet there are plenty of Norwegians who defend the fundamental cultural transformation even proudly and loudly promoting replacement migration, without worrying about the consequences, since differences between various ethnic groups is a mirage apparently. It is a bit difficult to buy into this if talking to those who actually live or work in the New-Norway, or the New-Sweden for that matter, even more difficult if you’ve experienced it yourself….but oh well … each to their own I guess. People’s values and convictions seem immovable. Unless you want to fall out with people you just have to accept that you fundamentally disagree about what Norway/Europe is and what it should be. The viewpoints are irreconcilable. Only respect, maturity, and love, can smooth out heated discussions.

Reality aside, the sun always shines on TV, so it was nice to coach some talented people and bury my head in entertainment, which is ย what most people do anyway. It’s probably a way better activity to partake in, it’s not like awareness makes you happy or anything.

Anyway, the TV-Team were lovely and had been notified of my reduced state, so I was even provided with a place where I could rest as I coached an interesting assortment of Norway’s entertainment elite…

IMG_4296

The first one up was a guy called Didrik Solli-Tangen who looked like your prototypical classical musician in terms of how he was dressed and groomed with the mandatory oversized scarf and all. He won Norway’s Eurovision Song contest and does classical crossover with his opera singing brother among other things. After I worked with him I also found out that he has been touring Norway singing Norwegian patriotic songs from the National Romantic era which surprised me as I thought that I was the only one championing National Romanticism in the “current year.” Isn’t the old Norway dead???? Apparently not.

As I shook his hand I wondered if he knew about “alt”-Berit, which was something I asked myself each time I greeted a new artist. I guess this is the drawback of not being a Che Guevara loving, flag burning, short-haired, Palestine-scarf wearing, socialist-revolutionary. You instantly wonder: “does this person know that I’m an outspoken, anti-globalist, pro-borders, nationalist?” *Ta-ta-tam* (insert dark music). There are lots of conservative & classical liberal people out there, it’s just that it isn’t equally represented in the media or in show biz, nationalism is also portrayed as outdated, in addition to being vilified by the mainstream press, so you can easily feel like you are throwing rocks into glass houses. Even if this is not the case. The current political landscape is therefore not portrayedย accurately I believe. Division and hate seem to be the goal of many dark forces.ย After having been on “Stjernekamp” I also found out that Gaute Ormรฅsen is featured on a track called “The Fatherland.” Huh????What on earth is this??? Maybe the winds are changing or maybe Norway is different. One can hope……

Waiting is always mandatory when it comes to anything show-biz related so when the team finally were ready I did an interview explaining what heavy metal is, before we headed into the rehearsal area where I spent most of my time.

Solli-Tangen only had to do one vocalise for me to realise that he was really good. That is the advantage of being classically trained. So I have to admit that I was pretty biased before his rehearsal was over. He also had a really cool attitude. Don’t get me wrong, the others were cool as well, but it’s a technical thing. If you spend years training your ears in classical music etc; it does affect what you prefer I’m afraid ๐Ÿ˜›

The next one up was a pretty girl called Lisa Bรธrud a big Christian singer in Norway; I thought that was kind of cool since Christianity is having a very hard time all over Europe these days. On the other hand I was also slightly worried about what her view on rock’n’roll would be, since Satanism is so closely linked and associated with the genre. I stopped myself from telling her to flash the horns for example, because even though this is a sign meant to ward off evil spirits, it is by modern standards seen as a Satanic gesture…..She had a pretty voice and was solid but had made a horrible song choice, something that I heard right away. I thought that this was a great shame and would have preferred if something else could have been chosen instead. I didn’t have a lot to work with so this was the coaching session that took the longest. I was genuinely worried, because your job as a coach is to be in the corner of the artist and help the artist shine regardless of your personal preferences. I did my best but felt sad on Lisa’s behalf as I was convinced that she would be voted out due to the song-choice.

IMG_4498

The next contestant was Adam Douglas who actually won the entire competition. Apparently he was relatively unknown before participating in “Stjernekamp.” He had picked a fantastic song for his voice type and technique, I therefore didn’t really have much to tell him vocally, besides cutting down on some absolutely, out of place, spastic, wobble. The greatest challenge with this contestant was his stage presence and body language. This certainly seemed problematic as being tough and owning the stage is part and parcel of doing rock or hard rock. It is an interesting thing to note how different temperaments and energy levels draw musicians to such different genres…

And speaking of which … Gaute Ormรฅsen was the next name on the list and he is a huge star in Norway. He certainly looked like a movie star but had the most docile charisma I think I’ve ever encountered ๐Ÿ˜› He was able to get the rocker out of himself and sounded tough; I was just very surprised at the total lack of attitude and the negative mentality. He entered the room without any confidence and seemed hell-bent on losing, not because of lack of talent but because of a lack of self-belief and fighting spirit, of all things. A very strange thing to observe to be honest, especially for someone that big. He left the rehearsal way too early as well, so I was wondering if he really wanted to be there or if he was just tired of the whole tv-show and wanted out. :/ Who knows? Nice guy though. Cool voice \m/

The last person to enter the rehearsal space was international rockstar Ida Maria, who graced the front cover of NME the first year I lived in London and haunted the rock charts with her hit song “I like you so much better when you’re naked.” I had no doubts that she would be smashing since she is 100% rock’n’roll; she also thought it was cool to meet me, another rock chick which was kind of cool. She had made an excellent song choice. Covering Lemmy gave her the opportunity to show off her rock’n’rollness, she literally lit the rehearsal space on fire. It was fun and a joy to watch. I didn’t really correct much on her vocally, because Ida as I’ve already said is a rocker, a rocker with a raspy Lemmy-like voice, the sort that would fit perfectly in a sweaty rock club filled with angry dissenters who hate the system and want to tear it down. I was convinced that she would win the audience over completely, and even though Didrik was the most accomplished singer technically out of the bunch, I also had Ida on top of my list due to her attitude and undisputed rock’n’roll charisma. No wonder she has collaborated with Iggy Pop to put it that way. Here we talk attitude with huge capital letters.

I made a new friend.

After an exhausting day we returned back to our lair. Again I must say I was blown away by the professionalism of the Monster team; they were extremely sweet and understanding and did everything to make my day as smooth as possible. I was very happy and grateful for the treatment. A real top-team!

What followed were some days of relaxation rather than the original idea of me flying back and forth between England and Norway. I think that would have been way too exhausting. There were many people I wanted to visit and many things I wanted to see while staying in a suburb outside Oslo, yet I had to rein in my excitement and stay put, since I had to have the energy for my live-tv performance as an expert judge later that week.

Whoever said Norway was cold?

 

IMG_4401

It’s an interesting thing to note how integrated “allergies” have become into our pop-culture … Once upon a time nobody really knew how to handle people with food problems. It is good to see that it is now taken seriously on the other hand it is alarming that auto-immune diseases seem to be increasing. I wonder when it will be revealed what the triggers are? It is in the interests of the public and future parents to know this. A person’s life can be completely shattered if they go into a proper shock. Food allergy is a chronic, life-threatening, dangerous disease.

Norway is apparently so sexist that only men care about Science, Hunting & History. If I was a 3rd wave feminist I would demand that these types of publications ought to be placed in “gender neutral territory.” It is kind of funny though. In the women’s section you got gossip magazines, fashion publications, erotic fiction and magazines about the house and home. Hilarious. Where are the activists when you need them?

That embarrassing moment when you think that you’ve spotted a Norwegian wild-cat outside, and run out to catch a glimpse of it, only to realise that it is a normal, house cat. Lol. Ridiculous.

That moment when you realise that someone looking like Putin is part of your relative’s family tree.

When you proudly show off that your hair is so long that you don’t need a hair band to keep it up ๐Ÿ˜€ ha-ha! Check me out! Berit-long-hair.

Fast forward to Saturday……

Toxic masculinity in the background.

Walking around the venue….The Voice also shoots there in case you wondered.

…….and the live show was amazing. I really enjoyed it. It’s a fun show. I find it strange that the concept hasn’t been adopted by foreign broadcasters actually … I’m sure a show like this could be a big hit in a country like England or America. You can see footage with translations from the show below:

Freaking badass. I totally dig this. So cool.

ATTITUDE!!!!!!!!!

Great song choice & a convincing performance. I would have had this guy up there with Didrik if it wasn’t for Ida Maria’s attitude and rawness \m/

Gaute managed to look like a bad guy ๐Ÿ˜€ he-he-he ๐Ÿ˜› Mission accomplished. He did a good job \m/ \m/ \m/ ย I couldn’t believe that he seemed so indifferent after being voted out :/ Weird. I wonder if he ever gets angry?

I did not look very excited during Lisa’s performance. I feel a bit bad about that. My face is way too easy to read. Lovely girl though and a lovely voice. I feel bad about my tragic face.

 

Fun fact: nobody wanted to hang out after the show! Besides the drummer in the band ๐Ÿ˜› My brother and I certainly had our jokes about how everyone were probably avoiding us ๐Ÿ˜› Who knows ๐Ÿ˜› You don’t need a lot of people to have a good time though ๐Ÿ˜› ha-ha

Do you see what I see?

Illuminati confirmed! ๐Ÿ˜› hahahaha

It was a cool experience to be part of “Stjernekamp.” It was so last time and it was so this time as well. The people behind the show are extraordinarily good! It is a great privilege to be part of a major production, it’s a lot of fun I must say. I wouldn’t mind doing more stuff like this.

I enjoyed my stay in Norway a lot. As I already said we were staying in a quiet suburb and also had the opportunity to spend time with Norwegian relatives. I ate lots of good Norwegian food which always makes my day ๐Ÿ˜›

The day after the live show we were on our way back home to “Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves.”

A Crash Course In Politics. (What It Is And What It Is Not).

Standard

Translated by me from the Norwegian article: ” The Paradox of the lifeboat – a crash course in politics” by Kent Andersen. Originally published on the 4th of April 2017ย right here.

I love discussing politics – especially with people who I completely disagree with. As there is something deliciously civilised in fundamentally disagreeing about a topic, while still being respectful towards the other party. But after ten years in politics a problem surfaces: Way too many people don’t understand what politics clearly is, and what it is not. ย And that’s not just the voters. I often read journalists and politicians who reveal a very bad understanding of what politics really is. I will therefore offer a quick and useful course to all.

When important democratic actors lack political understanding, it becomes a sign of illness for the democracy, as there is an absence of a firm foundation upon which right decisions can be made to steer society in the right direction. Everything from voters to kings have to see the difference between politics and its absolute opposite, emotionalism – if not the entire society can wither without anyone noticing or understanding the warning signs. Politics is not exactly cosy. It can even be quite brutal stuff in brutal times, so let me say something about that.

What is politics?ย 

Politics is synonymous with distributing assets and burdens in a society through the use of power. It is the business within a social system and field of ruling towards firmly established goals, where priorities have to be sorted, values/assets allocated and means chosen and used.

Keywords are therefore: Benefits and burdens – management and goals. Priorities, distribution of value and means within a social system and field. It is politics. The understanding of this determines whether or not our children will inherit a society at least as rich, harmonious, peaceful, safe and successful like the one we’ve enjoyed, something that is the entire point of the political management of a country: The goal is to leave behind something better to those who succeed us. How best toย accomplish this, is disputed. That is why there exists different political parties, directions and ideologies.

What is the opposite of politics?

The definition of politics facilitates the identification of politic’s antithesis: Emotionalism. ย Emotionalism has enormous appeal to voters and politicians alike, because it is so easy to unite around, and appears to be so “nice” in the moment. But emotionalism does not encompass leaving an improved society to our successors. Emotionalism is about the creation of the best society in the moment. Regardless of what the cost may be, or how the future will pan out. It is a competition of virtue-signaling – without any consideration for coming generations. Politics is responsible. Emotionalism is irresponsible.

“We cannot pit weak groups against each other.”

This is a favoured phrase for the emotionalists or for people who know zero about politics. Any budget is precisely about “pitting weak groups against each other.” Politics is exclusively about comparing groups: to prioritize who will get, and who will lose. To put A up against B is the exact meaning of politics. So if anyone utters this ridiculous sentence, then point at them and yell “emotionalist!” As they are about to ruin everything for your children.

With emotionalism the resources are always infinite.ย 

The budget can always be blown up by loans so that nothing has to be prioritized. “Everything is possible,” and nothing is impossible, and there are no negative consequences. Everything occurs in the vacuum of the moment, no burdens have to be distributed, and all future problems are marginalised, silenced or refuted. Emotionalism also lacks any standpoints besides good intentions: Everyone will receive, and nobody has to pay. Everything can grow into the heavens, nobody should feel left out, and nobody should lose. It is a reckless “free lunch,” that is tempting to fall for, as the dangers are not obvious: Emotionalism functions just as well as politics – in the short run. Emotionalism can actually erect a collection of magnificent public buildings in Bjรธrvika to billions of Norwegian kroners, in a capital that is broke, where tax levels are sinking, and loans decrease. Everything works out quite well….until the bill arrives.

Emotionalism works – short-term.ย 

Emotionalism is incredibly tempting to politicians who are elected for short stints. It works, and creates more friends than enemies. Emotionalism purchases votes in exchange for cash. But the price is high, as emotionalism is a credit card: Success always happens at the expense of the future.

Ruling through emotionalism means that nobody knows where they are heading, or where they will end up.

Ruling through politics means that everybody knows where they are heading, and where ย they will end up.

Politics means keeping a clear, steady course, and communicating it: “We are going there, and not there.” It means a common understanding of where the end station is. (Without everyone necessarily agreeing on it – politics has nothing to do with consensus, if that was the case it would be lethally boring). Greats likeย Gamal Atatรผrk, Margaret Thatcher and our own Einar Gerhardsen, are in a class of their own, since they engaged in society building with a long-term vision, with clearly defined goals, plans and means. (Many hated them, but so what?) It was easy for the voters to understand what their society was to become. Emotionalism on the other hand, has no end goal, no plans for how to succeed, and no empirical success data to show to. The emotionalists promise everything to everybody, and promise that everything will improve as long as they can keep going a little bit longer. But they are lying. Coming generations will pay the price, and they will hate it.

It is not politics if:

  • You don’t lead after clear plans towards a defined alternative, but rather satisfy everybody in the moment.
  • You lack clear, quantifiable goals for the future which tells you what the end result should be.
  • You lack clear priorities. If one political sector is to be the focus, then others will lose focus and support.
  • Assets/valuables are allocated, and it is obvious who will benefit, but unclear who will carry the burden.
  • The means are hidden or diffuse.
  • There is more consideration for activist groups than the silent majority and coming generations.
  • The politics take place outside the voter’s social system, territory or sphere of interest.

There are therefore many criteria that have to be fulfilled in order for something to qualify as politics. If we look at the Norwegian leadership today, we can see that within several of our sectors the criteria are being met – whether it is the fishing industry, the public school system, or common transport. The only matter that stands out like a sore thumb, is Norway’s immigration policy — it is not only Norway, but also Sweden and the whole of Europe. In this area the checklist display big and systematic deficiencies:

The emotionalism that steers immigration:

  • Immigration is “impossible to control due to international laws and conventions, ” and is therefore not really managed. There are no systems or policies that ensures knowledge of what next year will bring.
  • Immigration politics have no clear goal and no clearly defined outcome that can be evaluated.
  • There are no clear priorities, besides the fact that the funds are infinite regardless of the cost – in contrast to for example, social help for the elderly, where there is always a lack of funds.
  • Assets are distributed without ever revealing who carries the burden: Welfare for the elderly, welfare in general, roads, school, police and the military are typical sectors who see their funds decreased, but the context is often hidden and badly communicated.
  • Activists wield enormous power, while the majority is marginalised.
  • Immigration is accomplished outside the nation’s social system, territories and spheres of interests. It does not benefit Norway or its inhabitants, but benefits other ย countries and other nations’ citizens.

Politics is cynical in relation to what is needed.

Sadly politics come across as pretty “mean” in comparison to emotionalism. Politics is about conserving the voter’s own interests both today and in the future, and it is therefore “egotistical” over other countries and people. (But they have their own politicians, so why do they want ours?) Real politics can undoubtedly be perceived as cynical and brutal, because it encompasses a bone-hard knowledge of reality:

Resources are seen as limited and the budget absolute: If someone receives, there will always be someone who loses. When you walk in direction A, you remove yourself from direction B. The emotionalists always attempt to conceal such consequences, therefore there exists a good basic rule: Real politicians will always gather more opponents and critics that the emotionalists. Politicians become controversial, but look way better in posterity and historically when the easy emotionalism has been forgotten.

An illustration of how politics work: The story of lifeboat 4.

When (the for the occasion) fictional passenger ship “Politikos” tipped over and sunk in the North-Atlantic they failed to deploy all their lifeboats, and nearly 500 people jumped into the ocean. The few lifeboats that were actually deployed were not fully loaded, and it was therefore instantly initiated to rescue people from the ice-cold water.

Aboard lifeboat 4 the sailor….let us call him Winston Roosevelt, was given command of the freezing horrified passengers. He took control, and commanded immediately with an authoritarian voice:

– This lifeboat takes 50 people. Now we have to do everything to save people!

After a while there were 40 people aboard and the lifeboat was heavy loaded. Nobody knew how many days it would take for the rescue team to appear. The rations were limited, the future uncertain, but despite this Winston was crystal clear:

– There are more survivors! Row over there! We have to do everything to save people!

A cluster of 8 people were picked up. There was barely space for them. There were still too many people struggling in the ocean but Winston was uncompromising:

– There are 4 more! We have to do everything to save people!

They rowed over, and carefully hauled the four aboard, so that the boat was dangerously overloaded. But it did not help much. Eight people were laying ten meters away from them and were screaming for help in their utter desperation. Then Winston commanded:

– Row away!

Everyone aboard protested with tears and anger. They yelled:

– You said we had to do everything to save people! Winston gazed over the cramped lifeboat, and said sorrowfully but steadfast:

– That’s what we’ve done. Now we sadly have to get political.

Lifeboat 4 was the only one still afloat when the rescue team arrived.

Emotionalism can clearly be seen in a political environment where the photo of a drowned kid washed up on a beach dictates consensus rather than the collection of empirical data. This mentality could also be observed when Norway’s former leadership constantly declared that “Norway was not at war” despite deploying our soldiers to contribute to NATO’s military operations.
