I’ve passed 1.5k views on my latest video!

I’m happy to see that people have been watching my latest video about Article 13 and Article 11!

I made this follow-up video since I received replies from the EU politicians that I contacted about the future of YouTube.

YouTube has encouraged all of their creators to make videos about this topic since it threatens the video sharing site as we’ve come to know it.

Just yesterday I was watching a hilarious parody/mash-up that made me laugh just as hard as the 007 spy-adventures of the now infamous YouTuber Kraut.

If Article 13 passes through the EU it will probably not be possible anymore to watch and enjoy such content as I sincerely doubt that the content creators had any permissions in place before they created said video.

Google/YouTube are trying to mobilise as many people as possible since the legislative changes would mean job losses in the millions and YouTubers losing out on revenue.

In a worst case scenario it will result in millions of videos being blocked in the EU, videos like the one I was watching yesterday, and it would also mean that people within the EU would be prevented from uploading new content without all of the correct permits!

This might not seem like a big deal, but it is a direct assault on the culture of Millennials & Generation Z, in addition it can potentially destroy countless lives due to their income being drastically reduced or completely taken away from them!

Even though I am an original content creator I stand with everyone else who are part of the #SaveYourInternet campaign!

I hope that my contribution was helpful!

Thanks for watching & thanks for listening! ❤

How To Get In Touch With Your Politicians.

This post is meant to encourage civilian political participation in the West.

Our involvement is not supposed to be restricted to the ballot box but is designed to be an ongoing activity.

This is why the role of the press is so crucial since it is their job to keep power players accountable. They should not function like a propaganda outlet or as their own special interest group. Their interest is meant to be the people, and the health of their nation, with investigative journalism as their number one tool to uncover wrongdoings and abuse.

Thanks to the internet and the popularisation of gadgets it has turned every individual into a potential investigative journalist. Even though there are negative side-effects to our tech-culture the upside is that it will hopefully become increasingly hard to cover up human rights abuses and wrongdoings around the world.

Hopefully the emergence of tech will mean more transparency, liberty, opportunity and fairness rather than lies, imprisonment, destitution and exploitation.

In this post I’ll include two emails I’ve written: one that was ignored and one that was not.

I’ll also include a little introduction to activism since this is the tool utilised if representatives ignore the very people that they are meant to represent.

  • In 2018 I sent an email to the local Parish council which is the lowest level of government in the UK. I did this after reading about MicroPlastics from an environmental organisation in the USA. This issue is truly global, so I reasoned that it would make sense to raise my concern over here in Europe. I received an instant lengthy response from the Parish council who encouraged me to contact the Cotswold District Council, in addition to our local representative in Parliament and the local Water provider. This is what I sent: Dear Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown.

    I’ve been reading about the latest news regarding Microplastics finding their ways into the planet’s tap water. There are also plenty of petitions being passed around about this issue.
    I was naturally wondering what is being done to investigate and improve any problems we might have with our local drinking water?

    Sincerely yours; Berit Hagen. 

    http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.org/pft/2017/9/6/microfibers-the-plastic-inside-us

    http://www.cotswoldjournal.co.uk/news/national/14700238.Plastic_microbeads_in_hygiene_products_should_face_outright_ban_by_2017__say_MPs/  I did not receive a response but this was what I had expected. This plays into the popular depiction of the “elite“ not bothering about what the people have to say for themselves. I’m convinced that “arrogance“ and/or “silence“ adds fuel to the fire when it comes to conspiracy theories because why on earth wouldn’t politicians be concerned with the quality of their own drinking water?
  • In order to force power-players to the negotiating table or to tackle important social issues there are those who have developed techniques in order to make their presence so manifest that they cannot be ignored. Likewise the establishment might respond to activism by using state-force in an attempt to force obedience and silence upon their population. This can in many ways be interpreted as the breakdown of democracy and the rise of totalitarianism. You’ll be forced to compliance. Organisation within the civilian population in order to obtain political goals is commonly referred to as activism or community organising. It hinges on alliance building within the civilian population and to get journalists within the establishment media onboard. One aim of political activism is to get a powerful photo-op such as the picture taken of the father of a child killed in a high-school shooting extending his hand to Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. Even though Kavanaugh probably had no idea who this man was, he turned around and looked at him while the father was seemingly trying to shake his hand. This resulted in a “powerful” viral image used to portray Kavanaugh as an uncaring, demonic human being regardless of the actual circumstances or what Kavanaugh was actually thinking in the moment. Other examples of text-book activism can be observed during social media campaigns where a specific post from a company is targeted by what appears to be “consumers“ and “the people.“ In truth this is in most cases a coordinated effort where organisations send out mass emails to individuals who are already politically active online. “The mob“ then target said post or whatever individual creating the illusion that “the people“ are furious. Since it appears that power-players either have no clue or interest in political activism they cave-in fearing the loss of potential consumers. You can read more about political activism here: “How To Resist – Turn Protest To Power” by Matthew Bolton.
  • In an ideal situation it will be possible to receive a response from political representatives since they are meant to be the bridge between “the people“ and “the establishment“ much like the media. This instantly dissolves conspiracy theories and can potentially make “the people“ less hostile and blood-thirsty when it comes to individual political characters since a conversation is being had and the people will feel that their concerns are being listened to. Demonization can be actively worked against with political transparency, which is undesirable of course if aiming for political totalitarianism. My second attempt at contacting politicians was the result of YouTube urging their creators to raise awareness in regards to Article 13. Out of 5 representatives 3 came back to me. This was the email I sent them:

 

Hi __________. I’m writing to you as an original content creator on YouTube asking what you are currently doing to prevent Article 13 from hurting independent artists and creatives?

YouTube has made it possible for young entrepreneurs and innovators to build a brand, a business and a career.
Not to forget that Generation Z has grown up with a new set of heroes far removed for the more polished, establishment stars of previous generations.
I’m wondering how you will explain and justify to your children and grandchildren that the EU took away their heroes and role models in addition to making it impossible for younger people to start their own brand and be leaders of their own businesses in this new and exciting digital age.
Millennials and Generation Z will be devastated by this outright attack on their culture and form of self-expression.
Since the EU seem to believe so strongly that diversity is our strength, they must surely be in favour of individual expression from all demographics, globally, on a platform such as YouTube.

 

To hear what the EU representatives replied to me go here: The EU replied to me! – Article 13.

Thou Shall Not Laugh In Europe – The End Is Nigh For YouTube Entertainment!

The end of YouTube as we know it might be near thanks to the western world’s most notorious party-poopers: The EU.

YouTubers doing covers of other people’s music, game-channels, parody channels, top. 10 lists and independently run news sites will be the first content creators to be affected since the law is supposed to protect those who own their own copyright a 100%, in addition to whatever mechanical and/or visual copyright. (I do, or  we’ve paid for a license).

In short you need to own all the content that you upload. It will ultimately be the responsibility of YouTube to ensure that this rule is being followed. Which means that it might only be profitable and safe for social media platforms to approve content from major entertainment companies.

This will literally mean the end of socio-economic mobility and independent brand-building via social media an opportunity open to anyone with an internet connection. It will simultaneously be the end of the youth-culture that our younger siblings and/or children have grown up with.

The face of my younger sister when I explained this to her says it all, I don’t even want to know how my youngest sibling might react.

The role-models of Generation Z are YouTubers, when they meet they talk about bloggers, when they laugh they enjoy parody accounts and memes, their heroes are gamers and influencers and Millennials and other Zers who are doing covers, often times 10x better than the actual original.

Not only will it mean the end of their unique and diverse culture it will also put a lot of influencers and role-models who have not become part of the entertainment establishment out of business.

It is an attack on anyone who is not a baby-boomer, an attack on anyone who is independent, an attack on those who’ve been fortunate enough to be able to create their own playlists and choose their own role-models rather than having content defined for them by whatever establishment.

It is an attack on freedom, youth, diversity, creativity, vitality and innovation.

The EU are the ones who claim that they care about diversity, cultural enrichment and children, now we see how deep this concern truly is in their handling of the internet.

Generation Z & Millennials will never forgive them – Thou Shall Not Laugh In Europe.

You can contact your EU representatives and find out who they are by a simple Google search or make a video if you are a YouTuber: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/en/your-meps/uk_meps.html#shadowbox/1/

 

High Quality Boots For The Win!

Today I finally got myself new Timberland boots!

I’ve had the orange ones for 5 years and have been using them constantly. I can certainly testify that Timberland boots can take a serious beating!

I used them until they were completely worn out. If you look closely you can spot a hole in the orange boot to the left. They literally started taking in water, so they had to be replaced!

I highly recommend investing in a pair. They are waterproof, warm, have a good quality sole and are perfect for Northern European weather conditions, long walks, uneven terrain and mud.

When I got my very first pair of Timberlands I did not know that they also came in black. The new ones look really cool in my opinion and I cannot wait to start using them!

I’m a huge fan of proper boots! 

Getting wellies is a bad idea in comparison since they don’t shield you from the cold. With proper footwear you can keep on going until your legs cannot take it anymore!

Trust me! I walk for miles in horrible weather conditions!

They are also very easy to take off when going thru airport security due to the design. Trust me on this! You can wear them without tying them as you walk out of security before fastening them properly, which can also be done surprisingly quickly!

“The Prose Edda“ by Snorri Sturluson.

I’m short of words to describe my gratitude towards all of those people who’ve tirelessly worked to keep our Viking heritage alive.

It is no easy feat considering that what Snorri immortalised in writing were oral traditions. Much have been lost of what once was, but we are lucky and genuinely enriched thanks to individuals like himself.

“The Prose Edda“ is the ultimate guide to Norse mythology and should therefore be mandatory reading for anyone of Scandinavian descent.

I borrowed this classic from my brother who has great taste in books.

When holding it in my hands I feel like I’m looking at a most valuable treasure; I feel humbled, small, grateful, awed, honoured, that this piece of irreplaceable history has found its way to me: an ethnic-Norwegian in 2018.

It’s a flame kept alive against all odds, an echo from a past long gone, but an echo nonetheless that will refuse to die if people of the North keep it close and don’t forget.

It is evidence of the hardships of our ancestors and their battle for survival in a merciless environment.

It is a text that reveal to us who we are and what we come from.

I have to admit that I could not find the much-advertised gender-egalitarianism; it is said that the male and female Gods are to be equally respected, but the male Gods each get an individual description, whereas the female Gods are all lumped into the same category and are clearly representatives of the feminine with their own distinct roles.

When Loki decides to be mean to a Goddess, he misbehaves by shaving off all of her hair, much to the rage of Thor. The transgression is paid for when Loki get the Dwarfs to create magical hair made out of pure gold to the offended party.

Much warfare and toxic-masculinity behaviour is described. The greatest companion to a male God is his battle weapon, for knowledge he might sacrifice an eye or in the name of bravery a hand, a female God on the other hand has to wander the earth in search of her husband, as if thought losing ones man is the greatest loss and sacrifice to a female deity.

The gods are shapeshifters in Norse mythology. They can become anything, and Odin, the  superior chieftain, sees everything like a living embodiment of the CIA, NSA, GCHQ, MI6, MI5 & Google, all assembled into one single, autonomous, being.

The one-eyed God, who sees all.

Much will be recognised from Tolkien when reading through the work such as the names of Dwarfs, a character named Frodi, a cursed ring that brings misfortune upon anyone in possession of it & elves.

The most glorious fate is to die in battle gaining access to Valhalla, a feast hall for warriors who drink ale and fight each other every single day in preparation for the apocalypse, where the Gods will fight and die before the celestial system is born anew and the cycle repeats.

A less glorious fate awaits those who die a natural death of age and disease, going down into the underworld to a stark, formless existence reminiscent of the Greek underworld.

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

Heimdal (the white god) guards the Bifrost bridge connecting Middle Earth to the realm of the Gods. The rainbow bridge will break with the start of the apocalypse.

Optical illusions are a staple of the gods who dabble in mysticism and magic.

Slaves are mentioned, sacrifice is mentioned in passing without going into any detail, and a whole bunch of intricate old-Norse names are listed in order to immortalise family trees, reminiscent of The Old Testament. 

Those who are wise sit, while those who ask questions and inquire stand. Sitting down is a mark of authority. Another interesting detail to note.

“The Prose Edda“ offers irreplaceable insight into the past of Scandinavia, a sacred knowledge besieged by time and other competing world views.

In order to protect it and pass it on the smartest move would be to memorize it all, so that an oral tradition can keep the words alive when technology fails and we are back to square one.

Creation Myths From The Whole World.

Demons, Movies, Politicians & Bill Gates doing God’s work (according to himself).

This is an old entry that I’ve shortened & edited; I think it is of interest since it touches upon issues that are universal and certainly not unique to our continent or population groups.

You know, the only thing that kills a demon…is love” – Mickey Knox

The Kite Runner” is a movie (and a book) set in Afghanistan depicting the friendship of two young boys from two very different backgrounds. One of them is the servant of the other. The privileged boy ends up fleeing the territory with his father to the U.S.A. when Russians invade Afghanistan. The once distinguished Baba ends up working at a gas station across the pond to provide for himself and his son. In this setting America becomes a place of refuge and hope, not only for them but for other Afghanis as well.

An interesting detail to note in the movie is that Baba doesn’t want to be examined by an American doctor of Russian ancestry, but insists on getting care from someone who hails from the same territory as himself.

“The citizens of Kabul were skeletons now. Skeletons selling naswar in the night market, skeletons drinking cups of strong tea, skeletons playing cards in the moonlight. They greeted me as I passed, teeth clacking together in their jaws. “Salaam, brother,” they said. “Welcome home.”

In the superhero movie “Black Panther we are introduced to a fictional African realm called “Wakanda” whose technological superiority is meant to be kept secret. The movie is actually extremely interesting as it touches upon various topics that you normally don’t come across in the universe of fictitious heroism. One is of course the question of “racial solidarity:” should Wakandans reveal themselves by sharing their secrets with others who have the same skin colour as them? Another one is the character of Killmonger who is genetically Wakandan but who has been raised in America. He is technically an insider, yet he is not since he was raised elsewhere. When his particular configuration is introduced into the African realm he literally starts a civil war in the territory, displaying how dangerous it can be to take in “strangers” even if they are biologically just like you!

This element of  “from us but not like us” is very fascinating to me probably because I was raised as an expat but also since the scenario of being raised “a stranger as a stranger” is becoming increasingly common in Europe as it has been in America since its foundation. “Go back to where you come from!” but where is that exactly? I bring my readership’s attention to Liberia, a most ignored topic and scenario.

“The Americo-Liberian settlers did not relate well to the indigenous peoples they encountered, especially those in communities of the more isolated “bush“. The colonial settlements were raided by the Kru and Grebo from their inland chiefdoms. Americo-Liberians developed as a small elite that held on to political power, and the indigenous tribesmen were excluded from birthright citizenship in their own lands until 1904, in a repetition of the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.[10] The Americo-Liberians promoted religious organizations to set up missions and schools to educate the indigenous peoples.”

It must be a strange situation to find oneself in for sure, to be born a foreigner, yet being legally not due to papers, which is a scenario touched upon in the enjoyable movie “Bend It Like Beckham.

The tale of human suffering and struggle, whether fictional or not, knows no race or  geographical boundaries as the examples from above illustrates. Yet in the light of Nike’s recent commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick and numerous other campaigns that follow a similar vein, a question is left unanswered: what about white people?

An interesting thought experiment would be to take someone like the EU politician Juncker and place him in the context of the two movies described above: 

  • In the 1st scenario he would be an Afghan helping and aiding the Russians in their invasion of Afghanistan. A role that would certainly have depicted him as a villain.
  • In the 2nd scenario he would be an African leader giving away all of Wakanda’s technology and territory to another race. A role that would have him depicted as the worst of the worst.

In both scenarios he would be a traitor, yet in real-life and in the real-world characters like Juncker are depicted as heroes by the mainstream media, while someone who wants secure borders like U.S. President Donald J. Trump or Italian Deputy Prime Minister/Interior Minister Matteo Salvini are depicted as heartless, sociopathic, villains.

The reasons cited for why we should give our continent away as well are poor at best since nobody in the mainstream seem to ever mention that demographics within a territory goes up and down anyway, 2/3 of Norway’s population died during the Black Plague. Norwegians are still around today despite that dramatic drop….

“In addition, recent research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found nothing to support the assertion that economies are harmed by ageing populations.

“There is no evidence of a negative relationship between ageing and GDP per capita,” academics wrote in a paper entitled ‘Secular Stagnation? The Effect of Aging on Economic Growth in the Age of Automation’.

“On the contrary, the relationship is significantly positive in many specifications,” it adds.

This entry used to be substantially longer with a great number of articles linked into the text. I now seek to shorten it considerably: 

Internal tribalism among various demographics is becoming an increasing issue under the surface in the U.S.A., this is something that I’ve written about after witnessing and experiencing this internal fragmentation myself – now it has started to bleed into mainstream journalism:

Tribalism in the U.S.A.

More about the same topic.

Poverty in England is a huge problem: 14 million Brits live in poverty.

The E.U. are hellbent on uniting Europe and Africa:

Macron

Juncker

Matteo Salvini & Viktor Orban however vocally oppose unification with Africa and are not showing any signs of backing down: 

An anti-EurAfrica front.

“I believe that I’m in government in order to see that our young people have the number of children that they used to a few years ago and not to transplant the best of Africa’s youth to Europe.

“Maybe in Luxembourg they need to do this, but in Italy we need to help people have more children, rather than bring in modern-day slaves (from Africa) to replace the children we’re not having.” – Matteo Salvini

The French authorities are trying to get rid of, or to discredit French politician Marine Le Pen by ordering a psychiatric evaluation. If this is how political opponents are to be treated then we are getting closer to “The Democratic People’s Republic of Europe” everyday.

The desire to forcefully bend others to one’s will is an unhealthy, ever-present wish and endeavour: “We respect your Sovereignty – as long as you do what we want…..”

Salvini is under investigation due to his handling of Italy’s immigration problem. This was an issue back when I used to live there, it only got worse under Berlusconi. It is long overdue that something gets done. 

Salvini rudely interrupted since he wants more Italian children and less Africans.

Meanwhile; here we have Bill Gates who according to himself is doing God’s work. I find this to be an interesting proclamation after scrolling through his social media sites. If he is right, then God has evidently placed his love elsewhere.

The Muslim Council of Britain? British politicians who supported Hungary’s Orban, are now asked to distance themselves from him.

“His comments came after the Muslim Council of Britain said the incident raised fresh concerns about “bigotry in the party”, as the organisation has repeatedly demanded an inquiry into allegations of Islamophobia in Conservative ranks.”

You are an anti-Semite if you don’t like what Soros is doing? You are an Anti-Semite if you are targeting the Jewish people as a group. With the reasoning seen below it makes it impossible to be critical of individuals.

“President Marie van der Zyl said: “As we have stated previously, we are very alarmed by the messages at the heart of Orban’s election campaign, including his comments about ‘Muslim invaders’, calling migrants poison, and the vivid antisemitism in the relentless campaign against Jewish philanthropist George Soros.”

” … within the framework of international norms.” Where do they find these people?

“We place great values on the importance of the rule of law. We hope a resolution can be found that respects a nation’s right to set its own constitutional arrangements within the framework of international norms.”

Young politician Sebastian Kurz is a light in the darkness for sure. Austria doing what is necessary. 

I find it interesting that any person who does not comply with replacement-migration and the fundamental transformation of Europe is instantly lumped into the “far-right” category regardless of political ideology. This shows that it doesn’t matter what your politics or values are as long as you disagree with uniting Africa and Europe. That is apparently the only box that you need to tick in order to get this label. Last time I checked I thought that the E.U. was about establishing peace between the Nations of Europe, clearly I was wrong. 

The U.S.A. will expand its military presence in Greece. 

So with all of those articles pasted in I’m back to where I started, which is how all things go in the end, here is an article about Demons:  “How To Get Rid Of Demons & Demonic Attachments.”

Things That Attract Demons & Signs That Your Home Is Haunted

Possession.

How to engage in Spiritual Warfare.

“Me and you, Wayne, we’re not even the same species. I used to be you; then I evolved. From where you’re standing, you’re a man. From where I’m standing, you’re an ape.” – Mickey Knox
