I lately made the decision to write opinion pieces by hand; with the intention of digitalizing and publishing them after some days/weeks of further reflection. However I came across a peculiar article this evening displaying how profound the wish is to wage a non-stop war against everything our shared heritage is.
I find this to be very saddening as there seems to be a complete lack of will to calm down this well-organised crusade. In one of my latest opinion pieces (which I wrote in an analogue fashion) I described a political drama unfolding in Norway; where a very popular political figure was squeezed out by the bureaucracy & the opposition (who had one of their worst election years ever), based on a Facebook post. Their actions showed a total lack of respect towards the democratic will of the people, and that they, as part of the establishment will do anything to get “roadblocks” out-of-the-way. Nothing can be allowed to disrupt the silent, fundamental, core, transformation. (As a side note it is of interest to mention that another radical Norwegian politician suggested that the time has come for a new National Anthem, that can reflect Norway as it is today…)
Anyway back to the other story; The Facebook post that provoked all of this, was very short and called for the withdrawal of citizenship IF citizens fight with foreign terrorist groups, (to summarise)…I read one opinion piece about the matter, where it was argued that the viewpoint was a “slippery slope,” which it is, IF the targeted enemy groups are not clearly identified in the legislation. BUT the Facebook post is only made complicated due to how post-modernist societies define citizenship….This definition is, as of today, completely open to interpretation – but this was not always the case!
One would think that people would react with gratitude and be incredulously happy when given the opportunity to participate in societies that do not belong to them; not even by proxy, geographic proximity, or through “free-float-of-goods-and-people.”
But alas, I guess this is all wishful thinking.
Whenever the member of a minority group is officially elected to hold office in a foreign territory, this can in many ways be seen as the ultimate victory dance by those who adopted said alien. There is no greater victory than to get the children of those you have bombed or marginalised in the past to fight your cause, or promote the interests of your Nation. Yet our arrogance and conviction of our values’ superiority is proving to be our own undoing. We feel fantastic and proud in our egalitarianism, but this shot at equality will not result in equilibrium if there is no gratitude or assimilation from the other end. Rather you’ll find yourself as the duped party, standing there in all your self-congratulatory might, only to realise that your days are numbered; and that you are sandwiched between an enemy you aided into power and a raging fury from your very own men.
On that note I’m pasting in what inspired me to write this evening.

You don't need a single foreign enemy when your own people are up to this 🙄 We should all read the #classics 🤔 Who will remember our #music, our #art & our #books if we don't keep the flame alive? 🔥⚡️ #proudeuropean #proudnorwegian #proudwesterner #literature #reading #books #reader #readingbooks #library #culture #preservingculture #history #SavingOurBooks 📚📖📚📖📚📖📚📖📚
It is of great interest that radical, fundamentally, Anti-American, groups and individuals, are still active in the U.S.A. today. I’ve written before and I’ll say it again; it appeared to me when I lived there (many years ago) that these groups are the only ones who are really and truly well-organised. There is apparently no end to the funding as they bus people in from the whole country; they have their community organisers out, who’ll easily crash non-communist, peaceful, pro-American groups, all in the name of recruitment. They’ll get you to sign your name in good faith unto petitions and seemingly well-intended initiatives, only to phone you up later, hoping that maybe they can recruit you as a foot soldier – whether you are a citizen or not. Deception is key. These people have their passports and have their rights, but rather than leaving their country behind, they make the decision to stay, for the simple reason that they want to fight the beast from within. They remain and get their hands dirty politically, since they are on a mission. They do not like their country, in fact they abhor it! Completely and totally.
This “mission” evidently has supporters and foot soldiers within all levels of society, which is precisely why an article like the one above can even be a thing.
Considering how much our societies have changed in The West, to appease all sorts of various movements, it could be an idea to at least contemplate, even if it is just for a second, how very fortunate we are. Apparently there is no desire for such a thing.
