Nationalism – a Semantic Short Circuit

Today is the National Holiday in Sweden. In recent years the National Holiday has become the subject of much argumentation as to its validity and whether or not it is inclusive or exclusive. I browsed through the major editorials covering the broad spectrum of views on this subject, as well as the public commentary following […]

Mass attacks on migrant children – THE FACTS

“What do we actually know outside of media, a mobile video showing police chasing after hooded men handing out fliers and the witnesses they quote?”

Swedish Surströmmings-politics

“Whatever one’s opinions may be, I just hope for the sake of the democracy in Sweden that Swedes can be a bit more self-critical and ask if there’s possible something wrong with the surströmmings-politics they are forced to endure every day and take for granted.”

Ska Sverige stänga gränsen och vad betyder detta egentligen?

“Är Sverige redo att handskas med konsekvenserna av att temporärt säga nej till asylrätten och få tiotusentals flyktingar att behöva återvända till någon annastans i Europa, och konsekvenserna detta har för de andra länderna?”


“Om Danmark och Norge har rasistisk och fascistisk retorik i deras politik som dessa uttalanden säger, är det inte då logiskt att dra slutsatsen att rasism och fascism måste vara två av de bästa metoderna för att skapa några av världens främsta länder eftersom både Norge och Danmark ligger inom top-20-listor i världsundersökningar angående nästan alla faktorer? “

Sweden and the Syrian refugee crisis – An overview

“It is a like a downward spiral. The more Sweden focuses on receiving refugees, the less money goes to refugee camps, the more refugees leave their camps and come to Sweden, who needs more money to receive them and takes it from the relief and aid portion of the budget which results in even worse conditions at the camps, resulting in more refugees leaving and try to come to Europe – an evil circle without an end.”


“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.”

Propaganda – Example

“Maybe chalk up the ‘inevitable war’ furor to the desperate quest for click-bait by Western outlets who know on what side their access, advertising, and readership bread is buttered (hint: it’s not the China side, at least not…mostly…yet).”


“När jag från andra sidan världen tittar in på Sverige får jag känslan av att vara i ett parallelluniversum. Ett parallelluniversum där politikers uttalanden låter som dialog från Sound Of Music medan hat bland folk i allmänt har brytit igenom ljudvallen. “


“Isn’t it time we change how we view politics and base it on common sense instead of some ideology dreamed up over a hundred years ago when circumstances were utterly different than now?”
