The Eternal Fight Between The Light And The Dark.

Fighting for liberty and justice is an ongoing eternal issue that could easily become a full-time occupation without any major gains.

I think I’ve compared “deconstructionist” efforts in the past to Samara, the girl from The Ring franchise. I think I’ll elaborate on that by saying that she could symbolise the force of anti-human totalitarianism instead. It is a bad idea to pin this exclusively on a political movement (or a political party) since it is in many ways like a force of nature, a negative one, the dark to the light.

There will always be warning signs before a crazed lone-gunman unleashes his untamed fury upon an unsuspecting group of innocents and likewise there will always be warning signs before societal collapses.

When the EU reaches its ultimate form and they finally have the power to control their “subjects” exactly how they want under their jurisdiction it will already be too late and many will then wonder why they weren’t warned…….

The advocacy against Article 13 & Article 11 failed, and this could be since campaigning was way too fragmented and due to the message not being relatable enough.

There has been a lot of focus on how damaging the Copyright Directive could be for creators but the majority of the populace are obviously not YouTubers. Among those who are YouTube creators there will always be those who are professional and who know the ins and outs of intellectual rights due to being copyright owners themselves, but the majority might be largely ignorant due to lack of management/representation and lack of general awareness.

Many threw themselves on the YouTube cover trend since this gave people subscribers and views very quickly. I myself often wondered how on earth there could be such a great demand or interest watching the one cover after the other of the exact same song. Don’t ask me why there is such a demand for this … but the bottom line is that there is and that most successful YouTube channels have grown not due to original creativity but due to performances of already established works. This might come to a total end with the signing of the EU Copyright Directive which happened today (or yesterday depending on your time-zone).

I threw myself on the Article 13 & article 11 #saveyourinternet campaign since I’m alarmed at the multiple warning signs coming out of the EU displaying their total disdain for the general population and the totalitarianism that they are clearly aiming for when it comes to what sort of future they are building.

This is not a future that respects or take into account the internal European cultural and ethnic diversity that we have here already, nor does it seek to protect and communicate historical accuracies, nor does it seek to make information spread easily, since there is obviously a desire to meticulously micro-manage whatever narratives that are allowed to float around on the internet.

Witness accounts regarding targeted violence towards ethnic Europeans have routinely been hushed down (in some EU territories this has been more severe than other places), since there is only a yearning for carefully constructed propaganda in addition to increased surveillance. This in spite of Angela Merkel herself admitting to all of the internal issues in Germany over failed integration of migrants, before she then decided to do a total political turn and open up the whole continent to anyone who wants to come. A fun fact is that there is currently a lot of heat between the USA and Germany since the Germans have declared that the cost of immigration is such that they cannot commit to NATO expenses….  

Assuming that a one-size-fits-all mentality could function for the entire European continent with all of its innate diversity sounds mad. You cannot even move around in this territory without knowing multiple languages. People are very tribal and not knowing how to communicate locally will get you a lot of static, in fact it will be impossible for you to function. You have to speak many languages if moving around within Europe, this is not optional, it is a must!

When it comes to increased steps taken to monopolise “speech” and “story-lines” I ask this:

  1. Does this sounds like what we learned in school about East-Germany and The Soviet Union?

This is where we are heading in full force ourselves, yet people will not care too much about it yet since “it doesn’t affect them.”

Any person regardless of gender, race, orientation, beliefs, background, whatever, can be a YouTube creator, it could be anyone, yet the mistake that was made by many was that they did not mention the bigger or fuller picture:

  1. Several news articles cannot be accessed from EU territories, including the UK, since the UK is merely a province of the EU and has no sovereignty or power of its own.
  2. In addition to this there is also the desire to make it illegal for Europeans to talk about immigration, regardless of the historical implications of mass population movements and regardless of the fact that inter-European tribal movements define us.
  3. Nobody really reports on the staggering increase in vandalism towards Christian churches in France. Anti-Semitism is also on the rise, but according to an article I read not that long ago anti-Christian hate-crimes amount to over a 1000 incidents over a year, with anti-Jewish crimes passing the 500 mark, anti-Muslim crimes in comparison was at a 100 incidents. The question of course remains why this isn’t part of the mainstream news picture?

Simply trying to rally people around their favourite entertainment platform wasn’t enough, but I’m sure that more and more warning signs will come out of the EU and at one point or the other there might be enough people who are directly affected by the changes for it to make a difference….

I’m currently reading about The Russian Revolution and what strikes me as fascinating is the fact that there were several minor revolutions before the big popular one. Prolonged mass-mobilisation was a bit of an issue since demographics dropped off once their particular group received whatever compensation that they wanted. 

When their specific group was being looked after it was all good!

There is no reason to believe that Europeans will react any differently.

“For as long as I’m fine I’ll be quiet!”

Imagine a future where you are only allowed to blog or post content online if you have a permit or a license obtained after extensive political screening by some official department. You might be laughing today….but for how long?

12 Lessons Learnt From Being A Big Sister.

“Helping out” used to be the norm back in the day when our ancestors were more tribal and more connected to their immediate and (probably also) extended family.

The modern concept of “responsibility” means: gathering resources (making money) so that you can pay the bills that you have your own name on.

It usually means moving away from your family, preferably as far away as soon as possible, but not because you are starting your own tribe. It’s just vital for you to get away!

Back in older times responsibility meant: gather resources (hunting, foraging and/or farming), while there were other layers of responsibility that were acknowledged such as doing housework and looking after children among other things.

My situation as a teenager was dramatically different to that of my Norwegian peers since I actually had to help out with my younger siblings.

I did my part but felt miserable about missing out on what my friends were doing, in addition I also found gender-bias to be frustrating: namely that it was merely assumed that I as the oldest girl had to help out. When older women pointed out that this would be great experience for me when I one day started my own family, I was further angered at how it was just assumed that I would go along with gender-typical alignments.

When we moved to London and our Asian landlords assumed that I would be helping my mother in the kitchen I once again felt an inner dissonance, why did people just assume this?

Fast forward and I’ve realised a number of things:

  1. I didn’t really miss out on much during my teens.
  2. Whatever lessons I learnt from helping out; other people my own age simply had to learn later.
  3. A number of my old friends had to acknowledge that their parents had been right and that their own “rebellious” time as teenagers had neither empowered them nor benefited them long-term.
  4. While other people were hanging out and partying I acquired  proper skills.
  5. What I learnt from dealing with my family taught me things that I’m sure can be applicable to other situations, it even inspired me to write a children’s book.
  6. Helping out in the family is the norm in Africa, South America, The Middle East and (probably also)Asia and this is a benefit when it comes to having strong family units.
  7. It is much better to be part of a tribe (family) rather than family duties being outsourced to the impersonal State/government. It also saves taxpayer’s money to keep as much as possible within the family.
  8. I would much rather help out with stereo-typical female things rather than going to war or lifting insanely heavy objects.
  9. Stereotypical gender roles became stereotypical gender roles for a reason; and most people don’t even question it or think about it.
  10. The more people can do on their own and the less dependent they are on the supermarket-culture the more they enhance their chances of survival.
  11. I’m probably one of the most well-prepared Millennials in the Western world when it comes to managing and running a household properly due to my experience of co-running things with my mother. Not because I’m so awesome, but due to how uncommon it has become with traditional family structures and inter-family responsibilities. This is not a bad experience to have, especially when considering that the world is filled to the brim with other cultures where family is still seen as an important corner-stone.
  12. Nobody is too important to take out the trash. The Western world is failing due to an attitude problem and a value deficiency I’m sure!

Immigration Red Flags, Article 13, & Petitions To Sign & Share.

Please don’t forget about Article 13! Watch the video at the end of this entry!!!

Lately I’ve been mentally drafting an entry about citizenship in an open world. There are so many contradicting laws that makes no sense especially in combination with facilitated mass movements of people. It is indeed a very interesting topic for many reasons:

  1. Just because a government is generous enough to give you legal permission to be in a territory doesn’t mean that the locals will.
  2. Assuming that immigration laws make sense is naive since a number of measures are carried out in an attempt to create an image of governmental efficiency.
  3. Assuming that a territory will be more welcoming towards geographical neighbours also fly in the face of incredibly generous offers directed towards non-bordering territories. A territory might be legally more hostile towards people next door.

Just when I had all of this in the back of my mind I came across The Windrush Scandal that perfectly illustrates my point:

  1. You are allowed entry into a territory that theoretically isn’t yours through claims of ancestry.
  2. You are told by governing forces that you are legally allowed to stay.
  3. All of a sudden you find that your status has been revoked several years even decades after you were welcomed into the territory and that you are all of a sudden being treated as an illegal immigrant.
  4. The digital revolution has wrecked havoc on the old system of file-keeping. So if you were born before 2000 you might struggle to get hold of school records and other “evidence,” because you were born before mainstream digitalisation. When I was little my name was just added in my parent’s passports, you had to have your own passport once you were a teen or something along those lines, so government bureaucracy and technological changes can easily land you in a grey area.

Did anyone say an open world? Think again. This is a topic worthy of a giga entry because the issue puts into question a myriad of things that we just assume in today’s digitally and commercially open world.

Once again:

  1. Just because a piece of paper grants you legal access doesn’t mean that you and your family will actually be safe – because there will always be many layers of “borders” – and if locals are pissed off and unhappy they might create their own border-control “service,” which you probably do not want to deal with, ever.
  2. An authority might change its mind about you or the ethnic demographic that you belong to regardless of whether or not you actually represent a threat as an individual or as part of a generalised group. You might just end up being targeted so that the government can look busy.

If the Windrush scandal illustrated anything it is how dangerous the illusion of an open world actually is. You might be safe in terms of residency for 40 years only to wake up one day to find out that you’ve been labeled an “illegal immigrant” and that you are on your way to a detention facility.

Here are some petitions to share about a more peaceful issue: the environment.

Globalism vs. Localism & The Rise of Nationalism.

A clear advantage that you’ll have if you’ve been raised internationally is that it gives you the ability to compare different population groups and Nation State Systems.

If there is one thing that is clear to me whenever I look at old entries that I’ve written it is that the challenges faced all over the Western world are largely the same.

When a music publication criticises the current U.S. President in the U.S.A. the Italian counterpart uses the same tone and style towards the current Italian leadership.

When there is a movement to remove statues of historical characters in the U.S.A. you see the same unfolding in the U.K.

When a Norwegian ad is deemed racist in Norway since it features Norwegians and a Norwegian flag you see the same type of activism other places in Europe.

What is interesting though is that the backlash to globalism is localised Nationalism from groups who don’t necessarily seem to realise that we all find ourselves in the same boat…

Nationalism is bad when it is expansionist, when a sense of superiority dictates to such an extent that it justifies waging war and invading everybody else. Take this attitude and couple it with redistribution of wealth and you have a true horror-show next door since said group will have to expand in order to find more loot to “redistribute.“

Nationalism that is non-expansionist though ensures the survival of your Nation, especially if you are non-isolationist and keep your “friends“ close.

France for the French, Italy for the Italians, Norway for the Norwegians and England for the English has become the slogan that a lot of people hold on to these days ignorant of the fact that “the elite“ always intermarried and travelled around Europe as they wished…

Rules do not apply to the super rich. One of their privileges is freedom of movement. This is a privilege extended to those who work for them or those fortunate enough to work for corporations with an international reach.

The major bulk of whatever population group though remains stuck. No movement for them!

If the E.U. did something positive it was to enable liberty of movement to everyone, this was probably done to benefit businesses  but what it meant in practise was that more people had the liberty to pack their bags and simply exit.

This resulted in retired Norwegians moving to Spain where they could get more for their money, lots of Italians moving North to get access to jobs and people from Poland going Westwards all in the name of “pursuit of happiness.“

Of course this started to bother the managers of Nation State systems at a certain point, resulting in legal changes intended towards those who dared to leave.

Benefit recipients in Norway realised that they could have a pool, great food and cheap liquor if they went South!

Norwegians with substantial salaries in Norway realised that they could rent or buy villas if they took their Norwegian oil money with them anywhere else in Europe.

If you are well-off or rich up North there is no end to how you can live down South and as more and more people realised this I imagine that more and more bureaucrats were having nightmares and premature seizures.

All of this liberty resulted in non-elites owning properties all over Europe, moving around the continent on a whim while poor people could actually enjoy themselves and not just struggle.

So far so good? Well, apparently not. Because even though the scenario above might seem like a dream come true to anyone who actually believes in liberty the EU (and the UN) decided for some strange reason to invite everyone else into the European Utopia…

Freedom of movement also meant that if you could get across any border into Europe it would give you access to the entire continent. All of a sudden there were hordes of people doing anything and everything to get to Elysium; the source of all of their aid money, the Utopia in the distance.

Which of course can make one wonder if it was the majority who wanted colonialists out of their territories or whether or not this was the wish of specific elites eager to dominate their own territory?

How do you explain fighting for your independence when the result is mass flight Northwards only some years later?

It goes without saying that Europe cannot hold all of the world since Europe is a relatively small continent compared to other territories and when all of a sudden you end up having security threats all around your territory then how can anyone expect civilians to be quiet?

I think the reason for the current rise in Nationalism in Europe can be blamed on this.

For some weird reason though it is a Nationalism that is localised rather than a continental one, which means ignoring the fact that no European Nation stands alone in the challenges that they are facing and that the E.U. does not equal Europe.

This type of Nationalism rejects everything and anything reverting back to how things used to be when only the elite and the ridiculously wealthy could enjoy certain privileges.

It sounds like a political movement that is simply fed up. It also means that it doesn’t seem capable of actually dealing with the root of the problem which seems to be  international non-State organisations….

What you end up having are atomised Nations convinced that their situation is a uniquely unfortunate one, completely convinced that their situation is particularly bad and than the solution to their problems is: them alone, first, in front of everyone else, rather than a network of Nations facing challenges together.

Because this is the reaction observed all over the Western world I’m not quite sure how things will play out. The challenges are not unique, they are largely the same and if you were raised in an international fashion there is no way that you cannot see that.

What will the future bring? I have no idea but it will probably be bumpy for everyone.

 

 

Norway’s Worst Nazis by Bernt Rougthvedt.

During one of my visits to Norway I saw a book about “Norway’s Worst Nazis” while passing through the airport. I thought that this was interesting since the only narrative we love to share is the one of “resistance” and “contempt” for “the occupation.” So this time around I made it my mission to track down the work! I was really happy that I was able to find it since I had forgotten what the title was which meant that I had to go through lots of WW2 books over in Bergen, as I was only able to recognised it due to the “wording” or the author’s writing style on the back of the book.

This work features 60 Nazis who had influence in Norway during the “occupation years.” Some of them were ideologues others were guilty of torture, some were actual Germans, the most hated ones were Norwegians aiding the occupants, some received a sentence that they deserved when the war was over, others escaped very cheaply from their crimes…(Gestapo man Georg Wolf became a journalist for Der Spiegel for example….. some other German nazis apprehended in Norway were deported back to their homeland where they got themselves normal jobs………)

The book makes for a sad read that’s for sure, especially because some of the most heinous crimes depicted in this book came from Norwegians mistreating, torturing and killing their fellow country men over ideology…

Written about Thorvald Thronsen: ” 30. November he led a group of 15 “hird-men” in an outright attack on students and teachers at the Oslo “Handelsgymnasium.” They wanted to set an example after a “hird-boy” at the school had been in conflict with other students. During the attack they forced themselves into the school building and classrooms mistreating both headmaster, teachers and students.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

Written about Ole Wehus and his torture of Tor Njaa: “Njaa developed gangrene in his wounds, and over time he was incapable of standing upright. Big meat-chunks the size of the palm of a hand came off his body. The stench in his cell was intolerable. Sipo-SD however never managed to get any information out of him … He died under a transportation to Dachau in september 1944. This was however not the only time that Ole Wehus was active during the interrogation of a prisoner. He had tortured and mistreated more than 90 people before the war was over.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

“Germans deported 644 students to Germany, after Jews, military officers and police officers had suffered the same fate.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

There is special focus on the ship SS Donau in the book, probably because this was the first “shipment” of un-wanted people (jews). There were more individuals who were deported though not mentioned in the book. Out of the 532 prisoners on SS Donau only 9 survived the war, more deportations (and escapes) followed suit. 767 Jews from Norway were deported during the occupation, the majority ended up in Auschwitz, only 26 survived. Internment camps were also erected in Norway.

“Nasjonal Samling” Norway’s only legal political party during “the occupation” were literally “puppets” for the Germans, they were butting heads though as Germany’s vision for Norway differed. Quisling was very keen on Norway re-gaining its sovereignty and his main ideologue emphasised “Norwegianness” which clashed with Germany’s view of Norwegians as a sub-race to “Übermensch” Germans. It is believed that Quisling’s main ideologue, along with his wife, was assassinated by the occupants, when his car officially slipped off a ferry drowning him. The couple was apparently asleep in the backseat when it happened, but it wasn’t legal at the time to drive/leave a car with passengers inside the vehicle onto that type of boat. As the men on board were Germans, and things were politically tense, the accident gave birth to conspiracy theories. The Germans were not happy with Norwegian patriotism, but Quisling, funny enough, managed to get a promise from Hitler himself, that Norway was to regain its sovereignty after the war…..

The book reminds me of a real life “Game Of Thrones” in many ways, with all of these different characters, many of them extremely intelligent and successful, competing for control and power. There seems to have been many assassinations carried out by the Norwegian resistance during “the occupation.”  The most popular targets were Norwegians aiding the Nazis, Quisling even asked for 10 000 personal pistols to “his people” so that they could protect themselves from the rebels.

An interesting character that stood out to me was Halldis Neegaard Østbye who through a letter written to Quisling tried to delay or postpone the Jewish deportation, advocating for imprisonment in Norway instead, as the country was facing so much instability internally that she felt that a “moderate” direction would benefit NS more.  She also proclaimed that it was “un-aryan” to kill people slowly prolonging the suffering of ones enemies. Yet she also knew what the deportation entailed for the unfortunate victims as she wrote that: “it is granted that “the final solution” should be brought to completion without sentimentality when it comes to securing our own people and Europe from a new Jewish foray.” (my own direct translation based on the Norwegian text). “She meant that ” the jews are no race,” but viewed Judaism as a religious sect where followers had been guilty of inbreeding, isolating themselves from the outer world for centuries.” (my own translation based on the Norwegian text). 

It is interesting to note that the Jewish community was criticised since they did not integrate but rather created parallel societies within European countries…….

Even in Norway properties and belongings were confiscated, something that disgusted certain individuals within the Nazi/NS regime as it was seen as tasteless and corrupt theft of other’s property.

There was a lot of internal division. Some nazis were full on supporters of the Germans only, others of only Quisling, the majority of the population probably hated the whole scenario, while some of the resistance fighters appears to have been full on communists. Written about Per Imerslund: These groups formed a left-ish oppostion to NS, who they accused of being a capitalist party managed by freemasons. The Ragnarok-group … was just as anti-capitalist as it was anti-communist.” (translation by you-know-who).

It is also interesting to note that those who were reluctant to partake in the horror-regime were sometimes threatened with deportation themselves from their superiors: ” his subordinates feared him, because he threatened to send them to concentration camps or kill them with his own hands if they disobeyed  his orders.” ( Written about Ernst Weiner p.173, translated by guess-who).

It was also part of the plot of course to infiltrate the church, the education system and entertainment industry, in order to win the culture war and sway public opinion – and we all know who won that war in the end……*cough*The ghost of Marx*cough*cough*

The book is an interesting read for sure. I think it would have been good if a “map” of all the different Nazis mentioned had been included though, depicting how NS and the various German institutions overlapped, along with the personnel included. Since the perpetrators are presented to the reader in alphabetical order, you’ll find yourself going back and forth within the book to connect the various dots.

I would certainly recommend this book. I liked it.
