Having A Raison D’Γͺtre & An End Game – The Impression One Can Get.

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.

β€œPlan Of Attack” by Bob Woodward.

β€œDecision Points” by George W. Bush.

I was further mystified by the fact that 4-star Army General (ret.)Β 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 – 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. Β 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.Β 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;Β 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?Β 

What would make sense, instinctively, Β 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. Β 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 Β 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’Γͺtre 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 Β 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?Β 

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?Β 

Strangely and worryingly enough there doesn’t seem to be one……(but I might be very wrong, after all, who knows what goes on behind the scenes…).

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.

 

US President Trump’s Haters, Vol.II – The Lousiest Puppet Show.

Standard

I haven’t really written much about the never-ending political drama unfolding on both sides of the Atlantic lately, but I’ve certainly had my thoughts…

I’m not sure how anyone can justify Β the amount of exposure rewarded to a certain “storm-of-a-non-weather nature,” I’m certainly asking myself why on earth I even know about such a thing … if we lived in the age of my great-grandparents then maybe I could have understood the desperate attempt at creating some sort of scandal, but it is all a play to the gallery, not that I’m sure who’s watching or who cares.

While a certain administration is probably celebrating the return of three liberated hostages, the pacification of an Asian nuisance with the worst hairdo in the pantheon of villains, jobs brought back thanks to a magic wand, and a myriad of other accomplishments; there are other forces desperately trying their best to “isolate” the US President or to make him miserable by breaking up his family and undermining whatever cohesion that is necessary for his administration to work.

The cherry on top of the pie is how people who openly support said President, (or other politicians like him over here in Europe), will get heckled/trolled online and/or in the media, so as to discourage other people from supporting their views, attempting to create an illusion of ideological dominance, that is nothing but false; in addition to making the target feel alienated and hated by everyone, which is also false.

It’s a witch hunt and a lame one indeed.

Meanwhile on the other side of the pond … it is said that the leaders of our continent are saddened by Trump pulling out of the Iran deal and want to do their best to keep the initiative alive. The USA is letting everyone know who is boss (if you think about the Tweets, America visibly going its own way, etc;) and that the glory days of European leverage is long gone, unless something drastic happens on this side of the Atlantic. An important thing to keep in mind if European Nations want trade deals where we aren’t sold poisonous chicken and other dubious foodstuffs. We are diseased enough as it is already….

When I reviewed β€œWhere To Invade Next” by Michael Moore., I mentioned that one of the reasons as to why we’ve been allowed to spend a lot on Utopian projects in Europe is because our Nation States have relied on the American Empire’s Military to have Europe’s back. Maybe our leadership will wake up and realise that such priorities are reckless. We have enemies within and without and our culture needs to change in order to face new challenges. The Nations of Europe cannot expect victory without a serious boost in morale internally, and for this to happen there has to be a change in narrative, so that people know that they are not being lied to as they open up their front door and step out to face the new reality of the New-Europe; a derelict post-modern construct erected upon maggot infested delusional ideas, in desperate need of a reset back to the old, if our part of the world is to continue. It is a great enough challenge to cope with inter-ethnic diversity for any continent.

The U.S.A. and the various nations of Europe both West & East have to stand together, including Australia, Russia and Canada. This is more important than all other exotic alliances. Just take a look at what’s happening in South Africa. There have been many white people who’ve been chased out of Africa without anything. Where do we go if we end up being chased out of Europe as well?

I struggle to see why anyone in the U.S.A. would champion excessive liberalism if you contemplate how an Anglo-Saxon construct in a completely alien territory came to be in the first place. If your ancestors are successful conquerors, it doesn’t resemble anything that you would facilitate a similar victory for other groups on the land that you’ve inherited. Maybe American youths need to learn a bit more about their own history. Then they would understand the importance of a wall, secure borders and demographics. Not to forget that Americans did not “invent” slavery.

The demographic challenges facing the U.S.A. are monumental. They should have focused on bridging the gap between Afro-Americans, Euro-Americans and Native Americans before opening up the U.S.A. to even more different tribes. The issue with America the way I see it, is that they didn’t properly sort out their racial tensions before they decided to further complicate the definition of their identity and the possibility for cohesion. It has left the U.S.A. in an incredible sensitive and complex situation, where one can only hope that ideology (which would have to be on the conservative spectrum) will be the glue that keeps the construct together.

It is important to stress that the U.S.A. and Europe are two very different animals….

When it comes to Europe it baffles me that people have chosen to forget how our geographical location made us naturally vulnerable, and forced our ancestors to fight off Β expansionism, especially Muslim expansionism Β … Islam was pushed out from wherever it had gained ground in the borderlands of Europe, and it took years…… Why do we have all of these fine fortresses and castles of ours? Can someone please remind me? And if our Nation States vowed “Never Again” after WW2, then why lay the groundwork for one hell of a mess?

If one was to compile a potential enemy list of groups who could possibly want Europe destroyed we would probably run out of paper. That is an important thing to keep in mind. The notion that you can only be a nice European if you support the destruction of the continent while championing strong Nations and values in other parts of the world, doesn’t resemble anything, except death.

If you want to live in Africa or the Middle East then I suggest that you move there. I’m very happy with living in the Western World, thank you very much.

The other night I decided to check out an interview with White House Chief of Staff (ret.) Marine Gen. John F. Kelly, which was very interesting indeed, funny enough there was a link in the suggested area to a commentary video, which I decided to watch afterwards. To call it ridiculous would be an understatement as the creators of this content only really engaged in name calling and reached the conclusion, for example, that Trump being described as occasionally Β “uninformed” on certain topics during his campaign before receiving access to intelligence/security briefings was the exact same thing as declaring the US President an idiot.

After watching this enlightening commentary, and partially watching another one, not to forget taking a look at the comment section, I was reminded of how lame it is with people who merely comment on other’s work rather than actually producing something themselves. How utterly boring, not to mention how easy it is, to have opinions about other’s whereabouts. Which of course made me think of my own blog; where I, like so many others in this digital age, share my own viewpoints. I think my main reason for doing so is that I personally feel like the political narrative is dominated by, what shall I say “forces,” who create a false skewed impression, which is precisely why it is shocking to see election results, for example, as these along with surveys can reveal how evenly split opinions actually are in some cases. I’ll just quote a certain somebody who once said: ” There is no such thing as public opinion. There is only published opinion.”

It is also difficult to let go of thoughts concerning the current state of affairs over here on our continent, especially when there are those who literally advocate for, as I’ve said before, the removal of “offensive statues,” and the blatant censorship of curriculum, because the material is “too white.” (Caving to anti-western propaganda does no good either, as these people are never satisfied and keep on pushing, pushing, pushing and pushing. When do you hear a simple thank you even from any of these advocates?)

Right now I’m reading Douglas Murray’s latest book ” The Strange Death of Europe” and it is difficult to do that without occasionally feeling nauseated as it feels like I’m reading not just my own death sentence, but everyone else’s too. :/

Today I checked out the latest video from Gad Saad, which is hilarious and very true indeed. I don’t know if I’ve written it, but I know that I’ve previously said that artists should stay neutral. If you feel like saying something it should shine through in your work. Yet that proves to be easier said than done, especially when it seems like everyone has an official opinion about everything, and you fundamentally disagree with a lot of it. These videos from Gad Saad are really good and absolutely worth a watch. It is also my impression that musicians/artists aren’t challenged enough by those around them, but then again I think that the blame cannot entirely be placed on the team. There are numerous stories out there of musicians and artists who don’t follow instructions and never really welcome feedback from anyone at all. There are artists who would literally fall into the category of unmanageable.

Anyway, I will agree with what Gad Saad is saying … yes, donations are more than welcome since Jay-Z apparently doesn’t need his money anymore……..I certainly volunteer to relieve him of his horrible burden, as I’m sure that I would manage to put it to good use, I’m sure that there are lots of other people out there who would be more than willing to help Jay-Z and his wife, since money is a useless commodity … according to him………well as I said above: Donations Welcome πŸ˜›

Opinions….

Standard

They can make friends out of polar opposites and enemies out of peanut butter & jelly. I’ve spent sometime thinking about this recently. Social tensions were sky-high in the UK during the Brexit vote while it has been reported that family and friends are falling out in the US over the current election. It might come across as if though we are more sensitive than ever before, but I’m starting to wonder if this has its fault not just in the current state of affairs but also in our social media usage.

Continuously and unapologetically you are indirectly confronted by opposing political and religious views through what your online connections are sharing and liking. Let’s say that you are a firm believer in socialism and the agenda of the left’s political parties. You believe that higher taxes on the rich and/or corporate will fuel social reform in order to create more equality in terms of opportunities. You believe that the “state” will reinforce whatever legislation that is necessary in order to protect the rights of the people and that the bureaucrats will be an un-compromising wall between capitalists trying to gain control over natural resources that in your opinion should either belong to the people or nobody at all. You firmly believe that corporatism and big business is the greatest evil on earth, that privatisation is Satan incarnate and that only a humongous government can ensure justice. This justice would theoretically only be valid if it is on a global level, as a patriotic charitable nature would mean “discrimination” towards other cultures, which could be abstractly translated as racism.

Let’s say that these are your political leanings and that you feel strongly about this. People are emotional about the future that might await their children and most people probably feel that morality guides their leanings. The irony is that all sides feel this way. The starting point is the same, we simply disagree in regards to the measures that would get us to a subjective ideal point, where the future of our nation and/or the world would be in a better place.

If you feel that privatisation will result in the obliteration of the planet there is a high probability that you would feel quite emotional whenever you encounter opinions that disagree with this. You care about the future, you are naturally worried, problem is, you’ll be confronted indirectly by “global warming/global climate change-deniers” just by logging into your own private social media account. No longer will your realisation of other people’s leanings be limited to face-to-face discussions, you’ll form your own impression of the individual’s beliefs based on nothing Β but their online activity. This will fuel prejudices from any side and countless facepalm moments as you cringe at other’s “un-educated nature”.

This is the underlying issue with opinions. We are all surrounded by propaganda. News stories and articles that are twisted and worded in certain ways, as the author tries to desperately manoeuvre any potential reader in the “right direction”according to them. Where we come from as individuals, meaning our individual underlying perception of right and wrong, combined with whatever filter we perceive the world through, form our opinions.

Those on the right roll their eyes at the miss-informed,ignorant left, while the left bang their head in the wall over the un-educated, prejudiced right.

And like this we are eternally locked in a weird Tarantella dance. The infamous dance of the mad.

You always have to question where the information comes from and always bear in mind that opinions are shaped by facts that might be untrue or presented in such a fashion that our emotions get the best of us. In a highly emotional state it is reasonable to believe that we would make highly erratic decisions in order to save the future from what we believe would be destructive. The disturbing fact though is that we cannot be fully sure that we are aiming at the right culprit. We might find ourselves “executing” the innocent, burying the living. We might find ourselves in situations where what is morally right in the moment will lead to disastrous results in the future that are even more immoral.

Always question everything and never trust your own mind a 100%. Question yourself just as you question others. Your perception of reality might be completely false. Always raise questions about those that construct our perception of what “is” and what “is not”.

The Pressure Of Beauty.

Standard

Here is a blog in Norwegian about the beauty industry. I see her point and applaud her honesty, but an important point she missed out on is that for some, their appearance is their most valuable asset.Β Staying attractive to the opposite sex is probably the number one reason as to why women young and old put themselves under the knife in the first place. Of course many feminist would be enraged by me saying so, as they would probably assume that what I’m saying is that a woman needs a man for financial security. In our part of the world this isn’t really the case, even though some women would probably prefer to actually stay at home with their own kids, instead of leaving their kids to be raised by others. But the majority of women in the oh-so-advanced part of the world we live in have to do so as they have to work. An interesting thing to note is that those who don’t, are looked down upon in society as they are perceived as “not really doing anything”- just living off someone else. A woman who has the opportunity to be a home maker, will be considered no-good, as she isn’t bringing in any revenue. Funny enough, there can be little debate concerning whether or not it takes up a lot of time to manage kids and/or a household, when these chores have to be outsourced, to people who get paid to handle such things, if you cannot do it yourself.

Anyway, back to this blog I’m referring to. No matter how trendy it is to hate men and hail that women should be independent, men are still needed to form a family and as much as feminist might hate it, they are kinda stronger…. Last time I checked, nobody really wants to end up old and alone, so you have that issue as well. Even though it is probably controversial to say it out loud, since it might undermine the important issue of absolute independence when you are a modern woman. Maybe it is not that strange that women do what they can to be attractive and stay attractive…and that women have always done so. Also, if you are a skilled actress and you all of a sudden run out of work due to age, it would only be natural that the woman would consider to do some Botox and/or surgery to stay “en vogue”. If her income depends entirely on her looks, even more so. Aren’t men also going to extremes in the entertainment industry, to boost their income and to have a credible physique for certain movie roles etc;? This is not exclusively a female issue. Even though it gets portrayed as such. Men try to boost their strength through steroids, etc; women try to boost their beauty. Besides, the Norwegian blogger completely forgets to point out that there has always been a beauty industry and that people have been hunting for “the elixir of life” since Gods knows when. Of course this doesn’t mean that the explosion of Botox in Norway is healthy in the long run, yet how many unhealthy trends have women endured throughout history, in the pursuit of a perfect figure and beauty? In the blog she also criticise Norwegian female bloggers, who normalise and help market Botox to the masses. Yes, of course it’s disturbing that it should become normalised in such a way, BUT again, she fails to address that a lot of the Norwegian chick-bloggers are hot and end up fronting advertising campaigns due to their looks. One can only draw the conclusion that this gives the bloggers a substantial boost in terms of finances and/or discounted services if they promote certain beauty procedures/products. If you then take into consideration that the majority of these chicks have no other qualifications besides being themselves on social media, it should become clear that these are not particularly sustainable careers in the long run, and that their best bet must be to get cast and/or head hunted into the establishment and/or marry well.

The Purpose Of This Blog.

Standard

Some people have been asking me lately what the purpose of this blog is?

Well…my reply is pretty much….that there is no underlying purpose to this blog \m/ There is no strategy behind it, it is supposed to be about my life outside of music and it was initially supposed to be funny.

I have to admit that I got my inspiration from somebody else who shall remain nameless…..I though that it would be funny to write the most boring blog ever…That was the initial idea.

At a certain point though I guess I felt inspired to write about some of my experiences in the music industry and those entries proved to be very popular indeed.

Then I wrote a whole bunch of entries about my “10 year guitar anniversary” as I first picked up the instrument in 2005. That makes you think of course. Did I end up doing what I wanted to do? Or did I deviate from my original plan? What was my motivation for picking up the instrument and playing for all those hours in the first place…etc? This resulted in 5 entries in total….yeah…that’s what happens when I start writing about music….

By then the whole blog had become “work-oriented” which is what happens I guess when you do something you are passionate about. You just can’t stop talking about it.

I do find myself though constantly sharing news stories on my private FB, as I read articles that upsets me or moves me etc, then I thought to myself, why not blog about my opinions and share some of the material I read? I liked that I idea a lot. I don’t know how long I will keep it up or how consistent this “new direction” will be but I like it.

Most of my lyrics ( here we go, work again πŸ˜› ) are inspired by things that upsets me in this world, so why not share my views on certain issues? I mean I got myself politically involved when I was just a teen, and when matters of the world first catches your interest at a young age I don’t believe it will ever leave you.

I have realised though, that people looooove anything gossipy, these type of entries appeals massively to people. They can identify with them and whenever I either post an update or a blog that reveals personal information about myself I always see the reach go up. I also receive emails and messages from people who can identify with what I have addressed, which always makes me happy. If me writing about personal things can give other people strength and inspire them I think that’s really awesome πŸ™‚ But if I for example share news articles or anything political on my professional FB, I don’t really get any reach or any interesting comments from anyone at all. To be fair I’ve experienced people making a point of “un-liking” my page and coming with completely irrelevant comments solely based on a hatred or dislike towards the news site I’ve shared an article from. I’m just mentioning this to show the banality of Β not even checking out the article, before you unlike an artists page. It’s silly.

Take Senator Rand Paul for example, it doesn’t matter what your political leanings are, he did a phenomenal filibuster about drones a while back. It was fantastic and it excited a lot of young people. I shared a link to this and someone comes and comment about Paul’s supporters…apparently there was a video of a Rand Paul supporter stepping on the head of a “Move.org” or “MoveOn.org “comrade”. I’m saying “comrade” because anyone who has ever done their homework about MoveOn.org will know that they are (or were) a communist organisation. At least that was the case when I was briefly involved with them years ago, if it is the same organisation, that is. I did not know that they were revolutionaries of course, until after I had been involved with them. Anyway, They are one of many groups in the USA who uses political issues to gain support from people who have no idea what their real “agenda” or “core political leanings” are. What does a filibuster about drones have to deal with libertarians crashing with communists? I don’t really see the relevance to be honest. I have no idea, but that’s the kind of eloquent “debate-technique” you have to deal with on social media. Which sort of says it all.

So I’ll use my blog to write about things that takes my fancy or catches my interest, issues that there is no interest for on my official pages πŸ˜›

Me promoting a specific guitar brand for example, is way more interesting and popular, because most of my fans are guitar players! It is not uncommon for me to receive messages from people who have bought a specific product after seeing me use and promote said instrument-product. So there is way more interest for that sort of stuff. \m/

This blog, is just my “private little space” in the huge, vast universe that is the inter webs. Here I air opinions that are mine and only mine, even sharing links and discussing articles I find of interest πŸ˜›

Purpose? Hmmm…..some people just like to write you know…

Writing from the heart or the guts, depending on the mood.
