Some Interesting Articles To Read.

Standard

“Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan, 57, told an interviewer from Milan’s Il Giornale last week that “the phenomenon of so-called “immigration” represents an orchestrated and long-prepared plan by international powers to radically change the Christian and national identities of the European peoples.” (READ THE ARTICLE HERE)

This is the conclusion I’ve reached as well by simply looking at the placement of certain population groups within all of Europe’s Nations. It is obvious that it is a long term de-stabilisation plan by people who hate us to no end. 

I will let other people compile potential enemy lists over who could possibly be guilty… It’s not like people aren’t compiling these kind of lists already….

…some theories are more popular than others…..and will continue to gain ground by the hour I’m sure…….

(I’m personally not a big fan of conspiracy theories. I find a great number of them troubling, for the simple reason that it might make sense, but then it doesn’t if the accused group stand to lose. All I see are people who will lose in the end when reading or hearing of popular narratives of conspiracy. What would make sense would be to think broader, or maybe I overestimate people. In fact I’m suspecting that that might be the case. If I’m guilty of over-thinking then Europe & America are standing face to face with a threat that is shooting itself in the foot.)

With the current culture war and student movements on both sides of the Atlantic, not to forget the underground “scene” of self-taught individuals on the opposite political spectrum who openly blog or hack while being in “stealth mode,” I’m sure that boats will be rocked and alignments change, whether it is for the better or for the worst.

Loyalties might swiftly change and old narratives of friendship might suddenly be forgotten.

Leaders such as Sebastian Kurz & Matteo Salvini, not to forget “freedom fighters” such as the imprisoned Tommy Robinson are the kind of types that will salvage the mothership that is Europe. If they fail we will see the uprising of what their critics accuse them of being, “the great evil” that the mainstream media think they see in U.S. President Donald J.Trump. If the U.S.A. and Europe are not salvaged politically, there will be an attempt to do so from the bottom up. That is a given. There will always be those who refuse to give up. I predict that the situation in America will become especially dire in the years to come, unless the culture issue and the demographic issue is solved. 

So where does this strange self-destructive attitude we can observe in The Western World come from? Is it possible to manufacture Ethno-masochism? Well apparently yes…

Don’t expect that these type of initiatives won’t backfire though.

They do and they will. If your people win a fight, whether culturally, demographically or out on the battlefield, then you ought to remember how you won, because your enemies surely will!

And those who are clever will study closely, h-o-w y-o-u w-o-n!

The problem with Western culture today, is that we are neither equipped to deal with victory nor defeat. Or that is the aim of political correctness. The aim is clearly to pacify people and ensure that the fight or the battle is lost before it even starts.

The goal is obviously to have a Nation caving in on itself, self-annihilating, with the one institution falling after the other like domino bricks, and an angry populace wondering what the heck is going on, eventually resulting in violence in the streets and disorder, so that enemy elements placed within the Nation can initiate their part while their partners come in from the outside.

You have to be mean (by today standards) to win. People are inherently mean and people will be mean, even those who normally aren’t, the question is rather, can you be mean in a clever fashion without your operation backfiring either on you or your children?

That is the question and that is a good one indeed, all things considered.

I don’t really follow “trade wars” or “tariff wars” and find this quote to be interesting:

“The Commerce Department is currently investigating whether foreign auto imports pose a risk to national security.”

You can read more here: Germany Willing To Cut Tariffs.

Here is a genuine Russia collusion. I remember reading somewhere, sometime, somehow, about Russia providing energy to Eastern European Nations and using this politically, funny enough I didn’t catch that Western European Nations were in on it too… Maybe they should get their power from Norway instead 😛 Funny how everyone is spinning the Russia narrative as far as the U.S. is concerned when Europeans are blatantly dealing massively with the official “eternal-bad-guy-Putin.” Remember; everything is always Russia’s fault. Hilarious. I also recall that I read in a French newspaper, somewhere, sometime, somehow, that the then French President had lots of interests (or maybe it was France Inc.) in Iraq due to business dealings with Saddam, so their opposition to the war was not so much humanitarian as it was money related. Funny enough this story was confirmed when I read something else concerning the Iraq war….It is always interesting to figure out what drives people’s “official concern.” Lately I’ve been wondering why American celebrities don’t starve themselves for all of those kids who’ve been separated from their parents in inner-city America, but then again, I guess you have to come from anywhere but America for Hollywood to bother…..

Whether you dislike or like the current U.S. President I strongly recommend reading this: “Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Here is a most intriguing article from The New York Times: The New York Times Praising Donald J.Trump – before he ran for office.

Here are some selected quotes from the article, published in 1984….

“Donald J. Trump is the man of the hour.” – The New York Times.

“He deserves full credit for his success,’ says another builder.”

“Mayor Koch says that, indeed, what is good for Donald Trump is often good for New York.”

“To others, the notion that Mr. Trump seems to be able to do just about anything he sets his mind to is terrifying.”

“Roy M. Cohn, Mr. Trump’s friend and attorney, adds: ‘He has an uncanny sense of knowing that something is a good deal when it looks dismal to everyone else.”

“That Mr. Trump was able to obtain the location, when every real-estate developer in the world would have done just about anything to get it, is testimony to Donald Trump’s persistence and to his skills as a negotiator.” (my highlighting).

“He is an almost unbelievable negotiator,’ says Irving Fischer of HRH Construction. ‘I don’t worship at the shrine of Donald Trump,’ he says, ‘but our company has given up trying to negotiate costs with him. We just say: ‘Tell us what you want, you’re going to get it anyway.”

“He says that his concern for nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.”

“When he finally speaks up, he says hat he is on the commission because the young men who went to Vietnam got a bad deal – which, about the worst thing that can happen to anyone.”

“The day before he has sent $3,000 to an unfortunate family he has red about in the newspaper, something he does frequently, according to Mrs. Foerderer.”

“That Mr. Trump builds shops and apartments for the world’s wealthiest people makes him that much more prone to attack.”

“If you go with Donald to see an art collection, he’s not that interested. He’d rather look out the windows at building.”

“His wife describes him as an all-American boy who likes country music best and prefers a steak and aked potato to anything called cuisine.”

“Mrs. Trump says they like to attend Broadway openings an that they frequent the ballet and opera. Mrs. Trump is active in support of the United Cerebral Palsy Fund and other charities, as well as the New York City Opera. She is also an active supporter of Ronald Reagan.”

“He has dificulty now figuring out who his real friends are, as billionaires will.”

The White House Chief of Staff made waves online after untangling an American flag: “Once A Marine, Always A Marine.”

I enjoyed this article written by Steve Hilton until he wrote this:

“But we have to recognize that the melting pot is cracking. Years of uncontrolled immigration – and a creeping acceptance of separatism, boosted by identity politics – risk importing the disastrous doctrine of “multiculturalism” that is prevalent in Europe.”

The U.S.A. has been a multi-racial construct, arguably since the very beginning, with absolute “separatism,” before the federal government made segregation “illegal.” I say illegal, since people now self-segregate, which roughly means that the “melting-pot” never really worked on a street level. What I recognise in Europe is imported American multiculturalism, so I’m not sure which planet Hilton is living on… I find it annoying to see such lies in digital “print.”

Radical “multiculturalism” is a relatively new phenomenon in Europe. There is a reason as to why Europe never became Muslim and there is also a reason as to why we are so very pale……One foreigner now and then doesn’t really make much of a difference, but importing hordes of people will ruin the peace and comprise the integrity of your Nation.

It is especially dangerous if you mass import young men, who are in their “peak aggression” age.

Multiculturalism never really works, regardless of where in the world people try it, it always results in “separatism” and can only be held together by a rough, police state. It always results in fragmentation. Mixing on a large-scale only happens as a result of unhinged violence, where the men of one tribe are killed off and their women raped.

Inter-Ethnic diversity is a challenge great enough.

Anyone who welcomes anything else is culturally and demographically suicidal. Nothing less.

People = culture.

People = behaviour patterns on average.

There is no such thing as “magic soil.” Period.

If you mass import people from Uganda into Norway, then you’ll get Uganda in Norway.

If you mass import Arabs into France, then you’ll get an Arab Nation in the middle of Europe.

If you mass import Chinese people into Canada, you’ll get China Inc. in Canada.

If you mass import people from Latino countries into the U.S.A, then the culture, the practises, the voting patterns and whatnot will be coloured by this.

Apparently it is very difficult to follow this kind of logic………

Any person who does not understand demographics should be banned from public service.  It is that dangerous to play around with. An increase in violence and division is a given….

 

Chambers “ghosts and spirits.”

Standard

An interesting alphabetical overview over various paranormal phenomena throughout the ages; displaying how far back these type of stories go, with a particular focus on England and the spiritualist movement during the Victorian era; not to forget the popularisation of “the medium.”

It is of interest that poltergeist activity, at this point in time, is largely considered to be a manifestation of psychic powers. Especially within young, teenage, individuals, who are conflicted when it comes to the handling of their own emotions.

A theory is presented to the reader that hauntings are simply recordings of past events; since humans cannot interfere and interact with these manifestations, but can simply stand by and observe.

Time glitches where people all of a sudden find themselves transported for a brief moment back in time, is mentioned in short.

The work also contains a story of a very famous psychic woman, who found herself imprisoned for life after allegedly murdering her own child in the U.S.A.; it made me think of a medium over in England who was arrested by the authorities during WW2 because she knew about dead soldiers and losses before the news hit the public. This led the government to suspect that she was guilty of espionage.

Invisible entities attacking people physically is also featured.

A theory is also presented suggesting that “mediumship” might be telepathy; meaning that you get access to people’s subconsciousness!

The book also describes how some people have negative NDEs, describing a hellish experience of the afterlife. I’ve heard rumours; but this is something that you never really see mentioned in popular new-age, non-religious, books about the spiritual world.

Chambers also have some other cool books about the unexplainable; needless to say there are countless other works mentioned within “ghosts and spirits,” since this book is more or less like some sort of “spirit dictionary.”

PS. The picture of the book is not very flattering 😮 It is obviously a very popular, well-read library book, so I guess I now need to get a serious disinfectant for myself! 😮

 

Why The Bible Is Dangerous & Why The Political Correctness Brigade Wants To Keep It Away From You.

Standard

Because it teaches the following, among other things:

  1. Strength & values gain respect – a society that is too liberal will see you conquered & enslaved.
  2. Mixing with other tribes will create identity confusion & will eventually water down the essence of your people – maybe even replace you.
  3. You should bend the knee to God & humble yourself, since natural powers are 10x greater than man can ever dream of being.
  4. You are faulty and have to work on yourself to become a better human.
  5. Rather than running to your government expecting them to solve all of your problems, treating politicians with incurable anger if they cannot; you should scan yourself to see where you are at fault yourself, and roll up your sleeves to help out and take initiative, both in the home and outside of it.
  6. The State/Government is not above God & man is not God.
  7. You are never alone.
  8. You are not as smart or righteous as you think you are.
  9. You should not take advantage of those who suffer financially or are vulnerable within your own society.
  10. You are given the key to peace of mind, free of charge, which is not in the interest of those who gain on your internal misery. Our thoughts can eventually make us sick even, so why would it be beneficial to heal you for free? If you have a hole in your heart you are led to believe by modern society that all sorts of things outside of yourself can fix it, when the key is already there, within you. I’ve come to believe that true emotional “enslavement” is trying to fill the heart with all that which won’t fill it. I remember how insulted I was some years back when a Christian suggested that reading the Bible could help me with battling stage fright, I thought this sounded like total rubbish. Now I know that I was wrong, in fact very wrong. It has become so ingrained in us to think that we are too advanced for old religious texts (that are allegedly irrelevant due to how ancient they are) and that the solution for whatever problem we might face will always lay outside of ourselves. After all, this is why we have so very many experts….
  11. All you need to know to come around full circle as a human is this: 1 – Open up your heart in sincere and total prayer to those you care about, even strangers & 2 – “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” Jeremiah 29:13.

 

My last list of Digital Articles to Read – as I’ve moved on to Myths & Theology.

Standard

There is always plenty out there to read, whether “acoustic reading” or the more modern sort. There is no doubt in my mind what I prefer.

These type of digital articles that I’m linking to all share that in common that they display the struggles and conflicts of men, and the troubles that we face in our everyday lives around the world. I’ve decided to re-focus on creation myths etc; as I had gathered a nice collection of books, before I got distracted I guess. It takes a very long time to read the Holy Bible for example, especially because I always end up taking notes and googling certain sections to see what interpretations that can be found. I now also have in my hand The Prose Edda from Snorri Sturluson courtesy of my brother. The introduction includes this interesting passage:

I know that I hung, on the wind-swept tree

all nine nights, with spear was I wounded

and given to Odin, myself to me,

on that tree which no one knows

from which roots it grows.

Bread I was not given, no drink from the horn,

downwards I glared; up I pulled the runes,

screaming I took them, from there I fell back again.

It’s all very intriguing. Anyway here is a little reading list of interesting material found within our digital landscape…

After realising that my online reading habits could be tracked by others anyway, and that passwords are futile. I realised that I could might as well share and write about what I was reading. I’ve been pretty open about my negative experiences with tech, little did I know though how easy it is to lose control of gadgets,. I also wonder how you can report this type of incidents as the crime of hacking seems rather murky. It gets so personal when you carry your phone with you everywhere, and whatnot. So it certainly feels intrusive. Yet the side-effects of our digital relationships are nothing short of alarming: Read This.

Interesting; I don’t think I ever saw any warning labels on my Nokia phones when I was little? Thank goodness that I didn’t have any devices for some years, yet we are all exposed to wifi. How healthy is that I wonder? I don’t know if others have noticed but people’s attention span seems to be dead. Cellphone usage is the smoking of our age. Read This.

Not to forget the data-mining/collection happening through friendly, free to join social media sites. Everything from dating sites, blogging sites, games, apps; it can all be used to map and analyse human behaviour and thinking. It is the ultimate spy tool for people who cannot read your mind, but wish they could. It’s a trap; it sucks that it has to be used to promote products and  whatever business one might have. Considering the effects devices have on memories, focus and the cancer risk, in addition to the data-collection, do you really want to spend that much time online? Nope I didn’t think so. Stay off the internet unless you have to be on it for work. 1984

An article  in Norwegian about sexual harassment towards working women. The MeToo Campaign Spreads.

This is an extremely interesting article in Norwegian addressing the issue faced by the Norwegian police as they try to uphold the law of the country in areas heavily populated by immigrant youths, etc; They are worked against by post-modern academics, a lot of them female funny enough, who seem to blame the police for the criminal behaviour of the gangs. This desire to frame the authorities as racist, while portraying the foreign perpetrators as victims, create a hopeless culture, where anarchy is allowed free rein. I also heard not that long ago that the police officially came out and apologised or explained that they had lied about crime statistics. I actually saw the press conference/video of this, but will have to find the link/article a bit later. It is of great interest though. There are people who try to keep  something together that is obviously not meant to be; and as they press on the fragmentation increases. And speaking of which….

….the post-modern social conditioning or narrative is failing among the young. Incredibly enough my sister, who has literally been an almost Anti-Christ-like character at her school due to her questioning of our current politically correct orthodoxies, can now report that nationalism, patriotism and traditionalism is becoming visible among her fellow school pupils, as the current doctrine pushed by post-modern hippie teachers is becoming increasingly rejected as youngsters have had enough. The latest shock statement came from young people stating that if people hate England then they should get the hell out. Really? But I thought self-hate and alternative identity movements was the new way forward? The change has happened relatively quickly too, the young people are turning around. This is actually good news, if you like England and want the country to have a solid future….

I’m starting to feel that my predictions have been too apocalyptic. Only social constructs that align with human nature can function in the long run, unless you are to change human nature, and even if you try there will be those who reject it. Small things can make a thinking soul happy; and the rejection of post-modernism and the death of the delusional ideas preached by its teachers make me fly; just like the face of disbelief of some of those who were reading the results of the Brexit vote. Complete disbelief that the vote had turned out completely different from what they thought.

That is the danger of unbalanced perceptions of reality; shock ensues when election results come in, because people have started to believe a skewed, fake, narrative. And the self-proclaimed keepers of truth are the ones the most shocked as they’ve started to believe their own creation of delusion. I have faith in the future, because of the young, and because the current status quo lacks depth, meaning and strength. It cannot give man, what man needs, and because of this it will not last long. We will return to old truths that have been there since times of old in one way or another.

This is an article in Norwegian about political intolerance in Norway directed towards conservative voters and the hate and ridicule that openly anti-reds have to endure. It is quite an astonishing read and actually resonates with this entry of mine: US Defence Secretary Mattis, President Trump, Feminism, Intolerance & Reading Lists.

Norwegians should be ashamed of themselves since our immigration minister is as strict as she is. Of course the author of this article does not want to acknowledge the cultural risk of taking in people from alien cultures and compares the refugees of today to those from WW2. There are major ethnic differences between Europeans, I think our former conflicts bear witness to that. Why people like this guy would choose to look away from that fact and condemn those who try to protect their national identity and integrity is interesting. That type of belief can only be valid if one believes that our national identities are nothing but divisive illusions, and that our disagreements can be melted away if we awaken to this fact. Different frequencies of traits are deeply embedded within us, unless we are meant to look at visible differences as optical illusions and science regarding genetics as fraudulent lies. Or we can of course look at the body as a prison and look at the soul directly. When broken down to a spiritual level then maybe his theory makes sense; but why would you believe in spirits and souls if you’re an atheist or post-modernist? You will have to acknowledge the spiritual, which many don’t.

Here are some quotes from an interesting article:

“The internal memos also confirm how Monsanto exerted pressure. David Saltmiras, a Monsanto expert at the time, boasted that he had “successfully facilitated numerous third party letters to the editor.” He described his actions as being “in our own best interest” and as “the last rites for Séralini’s few remaining shreds of credibility.

The company hired a team of researchers and lobbying experts hoping to “orchestrate outcry,” and discredit the IARC as an organization with a history of “questionable and politically charged rulings.”

“Monsanto would do everything possible to protect its product, Roundup,” says Daniel Boese of the Avaaz civic organization. The company deceived consumers and influenced expert opinions for years, he explains. According to Boese, Monsanto “destroys scientific safety mechanisms that the public actually relies on,” and its lobbying influence is enormous. For instance, portions of the BfR’s glyphosate report are taken from documents from the Glyphosate Task Force, a Monsanto-led industry association. The BfR rejects the accusation of plagiarism.

In any case, Europe’s farmers would be well advised to consider the fate of Jack McCall, whose widow Teri is one of the plaintiffs in the United States. The California farmer had sprayed Roundup in his orchards for decades, where he was often accompanied by a loyal companion: his dog Duke. Duke died of lymphoma. McCall died of non-Hodgkin lymphoma a few years later.”

(good to know when living in the country…)disgusting :/

Here you can read about a very interesting archaeological find. I’ve highlighted the address to the article at the bottom of the quote:

“Behind the low-key announcement of the find, one can almost sense the mixed feelings of Saudi officials faced with an important discovery for their heritage, which, however, seems to connect the origins of the alphabet used to pen their sacred book to a Christian context, some 150 years before the rise of Islam.
Further consternation may have arisen when realizing that these texts are not only the legacy of a once-numerous Christian community, but are also linked to the story of an ancient Jewish kingdom that once ruled over much of what is today Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

Jews vs. Christians in the desert
While the Koran and later Muslim tradition make no bones about the presence of Jewish and Christian communities across the peninsula in Mohammed’s day, the general picture that is painted of pre-Islamic Arabia is one of chaos and anarchy. The region is described as being dominated by jahilliyah – ignorance – lawlessness, illiteracy and barbaric pagan cults.
The decades immediately before the start of the Islamic calendar (marked by Mohammed’s “hijra” – migration – from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE) were marked by a weakening of societies and centralized states in Europe and the Middle East, partly due to a plague pandemic and the incessant  warfare between the Byzantine and Persian empires.
The bleak representation of pre-Islamic Arabia was less an accurate description, it seems, than a literary metaphor to emphasize the unifying and enlightening power of Mohammed’s message.
Reexamination of works by Muslim and Christian chroniclers in recent years, as well as finds like the one in Saudi Arabia, are producing a much more elaborate picture, leading scholars to rediscover the rich and complex history of the region before the rise of Islam.

Through Christian and Muslim rule, Jews continued to be a strong presence in the Arabian Peninsula. This is clear not only from Mohammed’s (often conflictual) dealings with them, but also from the influence that Judaism had on the new religion’s rituals and prohibitions (daily prayers, circumcision, ritual purity, pilgrimage, charity, ban on images and eating pork).
In Yemen, the heartland of the Himyarites, the Jewish community endured through centuries of persecution, until 1949-1950, when almost all its remaining members – around 50,000 – were airlifted to Israel in Operation Magic Carpet. And while they maintain some unique rituals and traditions, which set them apart from Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, no one would doubt that they are indeed, the last, very much Jewish descendants of the lost kingdom of Himyar.”

A “Nazi-Grandma.”

Nazi in the USA

The Truman Doctrine.

The Marshall Plan.

Firefighters in Sweden had to be escorted by armed police in order to extinguish fires within a no-go zone.

A crazy story about quite a weirdo– displaying how easily you can make billions as a good-looking woman even if you’re a fraud…incredible. Watch this video as well.

An article in Norwegian about the rights of pedophiles who don’t attack children.

This is the sort of controversy we get in Norway. Farmers are pissed off because of the wolf drawing on this milk carton. They find it offensive since they want the wolf gone.

More about Operation Gladio, I haven’t watched the videos in the link, but I will later. It’s an interesting topic to read about.

There are so many things that divide us; I wonder what could possibly unite all of mankind? Nothing; you would have to create a new man; man as we know him would have to be destroyed. Even within a religious narrative of love there will be outsiders, heretics, enemies and whatnot.

You can never read, think, question, or create enough.

The Map of Heaven – by Dr. Eben Alexander & Ptolemy Tompkins.

Standard

This was an interesting read written by a Neurosurgeon who experienced a near-death experience. He is obviously very well read as he quotes a great arsenal of influential philosophers and whatnot. The book is easy to read (but not too much); you’ll race through it in no time. My only critique is that it gets a bit repetitive at times.

Dr. Alexander is one of those people who don’t believe in organised religion but rather thinks that we are all united in describing the same phenomena but in slightly different ways. The book contains several letters sent to the author where people describe all sorts of “paranormal” experiences/behaviour.

The bottom line is that hell doesn’t exists; all you feel when you step over to “the other side” is endless love; you’ll also meet your loved ones once again, if you are open for it. When I shared this with my brother, he revealed to me that there are plenty of stories of unpleasant near-death experiences out there, something that surprised me as I’ve certainly never read or seen anything like that. Who knows? Maybe it sells more to write about unconditional love without any rules of conduct to obtain it…

It is interesting that the superior “beings” (angels?) from not just Dr.Alexander’s experience but other ones as well, are described as clouds of light, or beings that are just light – makes me think of something else I’m currently reading – hmmmm…*cough* *cough* … the Bible….

According to Dr.Alexander you can get in touch with the creator-force of this universe by immersing yourself in binaural beats and meditation. It is obvious that the Doctor feels that his message is an important one; as we all need to understand that we all come from the same life-force and will be re-united with it on this “other” spiritual plateau of existence after death; maybe even before if meditating and “Ommmmmm”-ing enough.

Love is the message of this book. Be kind and don’t worry. The end is nothing to be afraid of. You are not alone. You are loved. Amen.

 

 

Memed, My Hawk by Jasjar Kemal.

Standard

After having read so much serious and factual material it felt strange to embark on a work of fiction. In many ways it reminded me of watching a piece of drama while downing popcorn which is something I seldom do. The book feels long and is probably of interest to those who enjoy easy escapism into a distant slightly altered reality. Kemal offers a very amusing portrayal of “the people;” meaning the wavering of opinions and general dodging of uncomfortable confrontations – even if it results in the imprisonment of an innocent. The work features a villain who abuses the villagers under his command; rather than a cry for political reform (which could have been his intent), the author offers an excellent assortment of different characters with opposing temperaments and traits, a talent that will always stand the test of time as social structures and how they are applied are merely a reflection of “the tribe” inhabiting and operating said system rather than a total result of “capitalism” or “feudalism”or any other structure in and of itself – unless the social construct is the design of said group in addition. In which case the whole package reflects the ethnicity behind it a 100%. One must be careful to blame religion for example as the sole catalyst for warfare historically, which is an absolute incorrect assumption many hold. The only way that war, conflicts or suffering could potentially/theoretically be avoided would be through the drastic genetic alteration of “man,” which goes to show you how awkward it is to believe in a “peaceful state of nature.” The State of Nature is violent and brutal;  injustice is therefore something that we should expect, as even a “just society” where everyone reaps what they’ve sown will be fundamentally unequal. Something to think about for those who believe that the simple removal of capitalism, for example, with the introduction of absolute communism will create some sort of utopian state….

This book came into my possession thanks to my grandfather, who insisted that I had to take it with me last time I visited him. The work literally smells like my granddad’s old apartment so it has a personal, nostalgic value for sure. My copy of “Memed, My Hawk” has been translated from its original Turkish to Norwegian – which is important for me obviously, since I live abroad speaking and writing in another language! My copy was published in 1971 by Aschehoug. There seems to be some text missing in the middle of the work, I assume this must have fallen out during the translation/printing. There are also some very apparent typos in this section as well, but these obvious flaws are reserved for a relatively small portion of the book.

Some quotes I enjoyed from these 294 pages:

“Ethvert menneske vokser til og utvikler seg i overensstemmelse med den jordbunn det er født på.”

“Bare drømmene levde. Den menneskelige innbilningskraft kjenner ingen grenser, uansett hvor snevert synsfeltet er.”

“Når et menneske snakker, er faren at det skal gå til grunne av sorg, allerede halvveis overvunnet.”

“Mennesket går med åpne øyne i døden.”

“Og da tankene hans først hadde sprengt den trange livssirkelen som den skjebnebestemte maktesløsheten satte opp, så ble det også lidenskapeligere.”

The Class Struggle – (the daily left-wing newspaper).

Standard

Something has to be seriously wrong with our society when a newspaper “founded in 1969 with a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist platform,” proves to be a remarkably good read 😮 Yes I know … I found this paper on the floor next to the entrance door of my residence in Bergen while I was there for work. The paper had been opened and folded in such a way that an article comparing “the reformation” to Islam was visible, of course I had to read what pro-Islamist non-sense this was. The article that caught my attention was cringe worthy as would have been expected, but the rest of the newspaper contained a lot of fantastic articles actually. Who would have thought?

The paper includes several Islam-critical entries in the front. They are well-tempered and encompass the difficulties faced by those who try to reform the religion and no promises that these attempts at “reform” will result in some sort of Utopia. The newspaper is also critical towards “Islamsk Raad” (Islamic Council) appointing a Nikab wearing woman to one of their positions; the hiring has led to a “schism” within Norway’s main Muslim organisation. The newspaper celebrates those teachers who stood up against the Norwegian Nazi Party under “the occupation,” offering an uplifting read and important points. Yes Norwegians should learn more about WW2, of course, such as the fact that a lot of those active in the resistance were … (drum roll) communists.

The newspaper is also clearly supportive of the idea of “bringing jobs back home.” Standing up against outsourcing to other countries is something that Nationalists and Patriots normally promote, with those on the left shrieking about “the global village.” One of the articles voices concerns regarding Norwegian Electricity export, as Norwegian citizens are taken for a ride financially. What’s really surprising though is Klassekampen’s criticism of the “fake news” narrative. Yes you read that right. The article is one of the best I’ve read in a very long time. It is remarkably soberly written from a centrist perspective, offering the viewpoint that appointing three major media outlets in Norway to monitor “fake news” is ridiculous.  Not only is it biased to assume the “moral authority” of state-owned NRK, or the two popular-lefties newspapers Dagbladet and VG, it would also be impossible for the three giants to get to the “bottom of things,” as Scientists go on and on about the same issues only for it to result in “inconclusive” findings and/or solutions a lot of times. The article is honest about how “the people” don’t trust journalists and how easy it is to create “echo-chambers.” The article is written by Bjoern Vassnes and is worthy of a translation to English so that more people can enjoy it.

The newspaper also offers a very interesting article authored by Oddbjoern Magne Melle, concerning NATO and how both leftie Olav Oksvik and righty C.J.Hambro were opposed to Norway becoming “trapped in the NATO feudalism.” Klassekampen also writes about how the fragmentation of Great Britain can become the result of Brexit, offering some interesting historical facts and perspectives. Nowhere can the “Marxism” be sensed until you reach the “chronicle & debate” section … here it flourishes like a spreading fungus initiated by a feminist assault on “the traditional woman.” The idea of “women being homemakers” is of course very “triggering” and militantly fought against at all levels. It is not all doom and gloom however as Stein Foerde and Frode Barkved stand up to defend Rudolf Steiner, a man who is constantly under fire in Norway, as the pop-media are on an endless witch hunt, against “the cultish Waldorf School.” I’m happy to see that some do their best to defend the reputation of Steiner, as Steiner Schools in Norway offer affordable private schooling. Yes, they are “alternative” but why the outrage? Maybe because the mainstream wants all Norwegian kids to be indoctrinated in the exact same way? The  article is a cleverly, sophisticated assault on the fabrication of facts by Ebbestad Hansen who is completely “owned” by the two criticising him. The newspaper concludes with a news story about Turkey’s desire to shut down a “Kurdish” tv-channel in Norway. I had no idea there even was such a thing….

So what do you say when a Marxist newspaper proves to be so very interesting? Maybe it appealed to me due to the lack of “an overarching narrative” so transparently displayed in New Scientist: Secret Map Of The Brain., maybe I enjoyed it due to the diversity of viewpoints? Sure I disagreed with a number of the articles, the cultural Marxism was on full display in terms of “the art” they promoted, but overall I felt that this was one of the most balanced, well-nuanced papers I have read in a very long time, if ever. I don’t know if this speaks volumes about our times  or whether Klassekampen has become less “revolutionary” and more moderate. Whatever it is, they’ve certainly collected an impressive arsenal of writers.
