A happier, less violent 2020

December 30, 2019 Each and every problem humanity faces is rooted in violence. Why do so many continue believing in violence, the most counter-productive, unintelligent and expensive means of all? Violence invariably makes a problem between conflicting parties deeper and broader and every solution more difficult. It make the original problem ten times bigger. All problems in this world are […]

It’s something about the U.S. Trumps

December 26, 2019 It’s something about their eyes – and not only that they are reading. It’s something about the main celebration – the longest sequence – of the military, armed forces, police and all in law enforcement, all in uniform and all around the world. It’s something about soldiers being shown when the word “peace” is mentioned. It’s something […]

Hvad vil ske, hvis al ud- og indvandring blev givet fri worldwide?

Om en tidsvigtig video-baseret kunstinstallation af Gudrun Steen-Andersen i Aarhus 7. juli 2019 Invandring og det fremtidige, blandede, multikulturelle samfund er et af tidens vigtigste spørgsmål – især hvis det kobles sammen med krigen som institution. For dén er jo den største producent af asylsøgende og flygtninge. Billedhuggeren Gudrun Steen-Andersen, der holder til i Aarhus, har fået den geniale idé […]

It was disseminated to social media, among others, my FB profile, TFF’s and […]

DIIS Information – om russisk og dansk desinformation

  Dansk Institut for Internationale Studier (DIIS) udgav den 27. november 2018 en slags analyse af Flemming Splidsboel Hansen med titlen “Russisk desinformation på skærmen. Benægt. Afled. Giv andre skylden.”     Om den skrev jeg på min facebook profilside følgende kommentar: “Vi er mange, der nu venter spændt på en lignende analyse af USA’s og andre NATO-medlemmers tilsvarende måde […]

Genialt af Skovgaard Museet

Det er genialt af Skovgaard Museet at bevidst fravælge islamofobiens kendemærker og dermed marginalisere dens tilhængere. Debatten om Muhammed-tegningerne handler jo ikke om ytringsfrihed men om dannelse, indlevelse og respekt (og ville aldrig kunne være ført hvis det var anti-semitiske tegninger). Og om ansvar for hvad man siger og gør – og vælger at ikke sige og gøre. Om ytringsansvar. […]

Intellectual nonsense about Syria

There should be a lower intellectual level to the statements by a US Secretary of Defence. There should be a debunking of the unethical behaviour that repeatedly state that there is only a political solution to Syria and continue to use only violence. There should be a discussion about international law here. There should be a discussion of what is […]
