The virtues of the US

February 22nd, 2020 No comments

There is a lot of wisdom in the US, and there is a lot of quality. Let us be honest about what the US is, and what we want it to continue to be.

It is a Protestant, democratic, humanistic country.

As an ideological idea, this is truly why we all love it, and why it is the IDEOLOGICAL leader of the world.

The world is good by the fact, that such a benevolent and humanistic power leads it.

Talking about the greatness in the US. It is not the material wealth or the technological development. These things are essentially just the effect of the IDEAS of the US.

Many American in the political world, especially in the Democratic Party loves Denmark. I get it, we are currently on the bleeding edge of political development. Or rather, I am.

But if I had to choose which country should lead the world, there would be no doubt in my mind, that it would be the US.

The idealism, the humanist spark, the dreams, the current development, that is good.

That is what should lead the world, not Denmark.

Point being, that the reason why I and so many other people around the world really respect and love the US. Is because it is a light on a top of a hill.

Don’t forget that, it is not Denmark that has all the best virtues and values, it is you guys.

I only happen to agree with you, because I am a platonic humanist like yourselves.

May G-d bless the United States of America.

Universal rights

February 17th, 2020 No comments

We need something, that will propel this election on.

Here is a take on it.

For a long time, we have been focused of what drives us apart, and not on what we have in common.

What do we have in common. Well there is one thing we all, from all corners of the world, have in common, a universal value; that is human rights.

Human rights have been dissolved into something I personally do not recognize very much lately. So we need, as I see it, to go back to basics, and have another look at what human rights and also, this includes of cause civil rights, do encompass.

It all started with French philosophers as Voltaire, that I happen to read these days. And let me tell you, he is SO inspiring.

What he did, was to look at rights as something universal. Something we can all have, but what is the basics of human rights? It is the freedom from tyranny.

To be free from oppression. This is THE idea about law. It gives the individual an attempt at being free from the haphazard will of tyranny and people who wish to put other people down.

It can be used in many areas of interest.

First and foremost it can be used to look at the freedom of the individual. Where does the state drive away the freedom of each citizen, and how do we ensure that this freedom is upheld. Here of cause we have a long and proud tradition in the US, to ensure that each individual has the ability to ensure his or her own freedom. That is THE idea that the valiant troops of the republic brings to the shores of the oppressed.

Then there is freedom of expression, that has been a huge issue here in Denmark. We are right now making a kind of ghastly monument in Denmark, my organization was, like Charlie Hebdo, gunned at by an Islamist five years ago. They even made a film about it.

But I think most important of all, freedom of looking however you want to look. Be it black, yellow green or white.

It doesn’t matter what you look like, we are all created equal under the grace of the spirit.

It doesn’t matter. We are all free, free from oppression and ridicule. Free to be who we are.

That would be the wise words of rev. Martin Luther King. To find freedom from opression through rights of each person of the beautiful republic of America.

G-d bless that amazing and happy country, may it live for another thousand years.

Voltaire

February 14th, 2020 No comments

I read a lot about the French Revolution. I would be so bold to say, that I am a fanboy of the French Revolution. As others are fanboys of Apple or AC/DC, for me it is the French Revolution.

To me, a lot of the problems that we face today can be understood on the light of that amazing upheaval.

That was the time, where the CITIZEN, the CITOYEN was coined as a phrase of the new ideas of Voltaire, Rousseau and Eliphas Levi.

Reading Voltaire is a powerful glimpse into the world of the revolution, and it is extremely inspiring for me.

As he says; we are the light of the revolution the truth tellers and wielders of rationality.

This is the true core of human rights and humanism. The ability to see things as they are.

We try that, but more often than not, we fail in seeing the nuances and the truth of a situation.

We fall back on old ideas, instead of being truly progressive in the sense of finding new ideas.

True progressivism is taking bold steps in a new direction. But, as I see it, honoring the base of our ideas. Voltaire was the first true revolutionary, let us honor his quest for Democracy and enlightenment. Because without it, what we do is just participating in the mudslinging.

That is not humanism or enlightenment, that is just our stupid human nature doing whatever it wants.

Elevating ourselves to the level of true enlightenment is the quest of honesty, being simple in our understanding.

Trying to understand the world for what it is, and act accordingly.

G-d bless the will to be honest about the world as it is.

The Way forward

February 13th, 2020 No comments

Now after Brexit, which was a good thing to my mind, and the truly difficult situation that the Democratic Party is in, we have to be sharp on our priorities.

First of all, we have to realize that there is a more nuanced picture on migration than just ‘all migrants are suffering victims’. In order to push through to a more sustainable and balanced view on the world, we need to see the details.

Let me give you a good example, that is firmly rooted in theory that I have done politically.

On one hand we have the Kurds, brave socialists, at the other hand we have Islamic state, vile islamists.

That is, they are both Sunni Muslims, but choose different paths on to how they view Islam.

One is truly all in on democracy, that other is not.

That is really the basis of the difference between our allies and our enemies.

The problem is, as I see it, we do not differentiate in the US or the UK.

Here we still see all Muslims as victims. They are not, some chose to bomb our cities, and do evil things. Others are heroes.

It is as rev. Martin Luther King prescribed. We are the ones, who support the society, try to blend in, be good citizens with rights.

But there are some, who chose to fight society to change into something that is wrong.

Understanding this difference is most important to me.

The same goes for the UK. There is the Anglican Church, that is truly universal and not racist. But there are things going on in and around some British cities, that is vile.

This balance is off cause most difficult to find. To be not racist, and at the same time accept that there is a true problem with Islamism, but that is just a fact.

Rev. Martin Luther King did not like Malcolm X, because his dream was to make a society where all were accepted. From little to big.

We have to follow in his footsteps.

G-d bless the will to be clear on these matters.

Visions

February 6th, 2020 No comments

Now when Britain has become free, and then has to find itself in a new role in a world that has changed massively since the admission into the EU, new ideas have to be thought.

When the Roman empire fell, it took a long time for it to refind its true new role.

It went like this. After all the invasion of the vikings of that time, the central administration was kept in one piece not with regards to the political or the military infrastructure, but the faith.

As the two arms of the Roman empire vanished the church just kept on keeping on.

The good thing about this was, that the provinces that used to be a part of the Roman empire could still be inspired and helped in terms of civilisation, while as the direct control that, honestly was a yoke around the neck of many of the provinces, was removed. Thereby giving each province a much more free connection to Rome.

This model was so succesful, so that when the southern european states expanded in the 14 and 15 century, they took this model to the Americas.

It is still like that.

The same role could be one for the British empire. So that the influence and sway that London holds over the former parts of the empire is mainly through cultural development and the facilitation of cooperation.

This seems to be quite popular among the former colonies, to be a part of a wider commonwealth.

There is the fact, that the military wing of the British empire is still intact. So there is a possibility to bolster the support London could give around the world to allies with firepower as well. Some of the conflicts in China and in Africa are quite harsh, and should be supported by the military wing.

In this way, through culture and military support, the empire could slowly find its footing again.

It will never be controlled directly from Whitehall again, but a new more sustainable balance could be found. I mean, the Roman empire is still here 1700 years after it fell. Perhaps the British empire could do the same.

In other words, what we are doing now, is laying the groundworks for a development that will culminate in thousands of years.

It is this perspective that is truly scary and wonderful at the same time, so much potential, so much work to do.

But it is this mission, that truly calls for historical action.

A person living in this process will be hailed down through the next thousands of years as reformers and visionaries. Imagine that.

And g-d bless the Anglican Church, because the anglican church will be the most important frame around this development.

Islamists

February 3rd, 2020 No comments

Well, finally we can actually do something in regards to the development of terrorism and the jihadis using the streets of London to wage their civil war.

Because, let us face it, that is what it is.

In this regard, there are some difficult issues we need to tackle and discuss.

Some years ago mr. Johnson got pretty unpopular in the press because he compared the peculiar headdress of a certain Muslim faith to letterboxes.

Point being, that that is not a part of a free western world.

The same could be said about waging jihad with a knife in the middle of the day. That is not, and should not be a part of Western civilization.

It may be ok in the streets of Kandahar, but it is not ok in London, go figure.

So what do we do?

Well, this is the time, we need to use our new acquired freedoms.

Before, we had a lot of trouble with the European Union in these issues, because they did not see the threat to Democracy that the islamists pose, but saw a threat to their own power.

These things are not necessarily the same, but often it is.

Be as it may, there was no real consequence for a jihadi waging war in the streets, because of the stalemate of power between parliament and Bruxelles.

This is not an issue anymore, we are free to follow a conservative course on this political issue.

So what will we do?

We start repatriating all the jihadis.

Some of them have citizenship, others not.

But to wage war against the democratic constitution as they are doing now, is not within the bounds of their citizenship. So if they do that, their citizenship should be taken from them.

In this way, they will never be let loose in the streets again.

They are free to go back to where they originally came from, essentially this is not our problem.

We have to be extremely tough on these issues, and this is something that works.

G-d bless the will to punish those who attack the weakest, bringing justice to those who despise Democracy.

Looking forward

February 2nd, 2020 No comments

Well, there are a lot of things, that are going in the right way, and there are a lot things, that I simply cannot save in time.

To spread the vision, and see it a little from above, we can see some astounding successes and some corners of the world, that are simply going down.

Sweden is honestly beyond repair. I would like to help them, but the amount of problems they have right now is so devastating, so that is simply beyond my reach.

At the other hand the Anglo saxons are on a true course of improvement. The UK has just been liberated, the US is truly on its way up. It works, and in ten years the Anglo Saxons will be free and content again.

There is the conflict with China looming in the horizon, and the UK has a lot of work to do to serve the empire. But these things are essentially just work and not really challenges. It has to be done, it will create an abundance of opportunity and progress. But it is not difficult.

Yes there are a host of issues that are challenging in the UK, among them migration that has to be tackled, but that is also ‘just’ a matter of policy.

Off cause the crown jewel of my political is Israel, that is heading for true peace, so that is good as well.

My job situation seems to be improving as well. I have finally managed to get a media job, that serves my needs, and leaves plenty of room for blogging.

It may not be so prestigious, but it gives the politicians an easy route to my positive attention here in Denmark, so that I can contribute to the development of Denmark.

All in all a situation that is essentially stable, and will give me a way to combine my living with blogging.

Ten years, more or less, will be the span of my work I think. After that, there will be new players and philosophers to challenge me. Which is all just good and the way things are supposed to be.

But the next ten years, my aim is to wrangle the West out of the death grip it has been in as a result of the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

Hopefully at the end of the process, we will have a bit more stable, humane and free world.

At least, that is my aim.

G-d bless the will of the strong to find peace in this world.

Congratulations England

January 31st, 2020 No comments

Finally, Great Britain has become free once again. Free to set its own course, free to remain a whole, free to roam the seas of the world.

Many people see all the talk about the empire as a talk of a bygone time. They believe, that the West is finished, and we might as well all just turn off the light, and take of our slippers.

But is it so, and what are the real deal behind the PRACTICAL situation of the world.

I mean, as long as Australia flies Union Jack in their flag, and as long as Hong Kong yearns to have the support of Great Britain. Then there is, in practise, an empire. Not an empire of subjugation and tyranny, but an empire of practical proportion. It is there, whether you like it or not.

And it needs repair. The demoralisation and often right out despair is not good. What the empire needs, is a stable hand on the wheel and an inspired position of leadership.

This is not about tyranny, or putting people down. It is about taking care of those who are family.

That is not a bad thing, that is a good thing.

So as long as the intentions are serious and positive. There is no reason not to fly the banner, once again.

G-d bless the will of the british people and all those in the commonwealth.

Never again

January 28th, 2020 No comments

75 years ago, Europe went through a massive antisemtic purge.

In most of Europe, the narzies as Winston Churchill called them, went through the European homeworld, where jews had lived for thousands of years and purged them. Got rid of them, put them concentration camps and what was worse.

Unimaginable horror went down in Europe, to a people with so little defence.

Yes, there were Jews that did things wrong, as there are today. But systematic extinction, that is horribly wrong.

As of now, no viler crime has been done to the Jews in our long history. The Shoa, Holocaust was a crime not only against Jews, but against all of humanity.

Understanding the how’s and ifs is vital also today.

But as a fact, it seems to me, that we learn so little. Today in Denmark antisemitism is ripe for another round in the ring.

The same old same position. How are we to fare against this monster.

Well as it is prescribed in the torah, by being the people of light. By trying to be honest, openminded, true to what we see as right and wrong.

Yes, there are those who do not seek to harm us, let us be happy about that. Yes, there are those who seek to harm us, let us be honest about that.

But first and foremost, let us hail the light.

Let us be the ones, that see truth for what it is. Honesty, integrity, morality, be good persons in this time of persecution once again.

Let us turn that “once again” into a “never again”.

G-d bless the will to be the light in a time of creeping darkness.

The Christian minorities

January 21st, 2020 No comments

Well, the situation of the world has changed. It seems to me, that the middle leaning Democrats, and the middleleaning conservatives are really what it is all about.

I certainly do not believe we should start a third world war or anything in the like.

But there are minorities around the world, that still need some attention.

One minority, that I have personally been involved with a lot is the Christian minority of Egypts. The Copts.

This little but extremely beautiful church is an ancient church that has been in Egypt for millennia.

I truly believe, that the relationship mr. Al-Sisi has with his Christian populace is not good, but still something that is recommendable.

We should look out for the minorities in the world, not at least the Christian minorities that have a truly hard time in the Middle East these days.

G-d bless the will to protect those without protection.

War and peace

January 16th, 2020 No comments

Well, it seems to me, that the waves of war and conflict has soothed a little over the last four days.

The threatening conflict between the US and Iran has not come to pass, and therefor we have a calm.

I do not understand why we cannot have some kind of peace. But I do understand why the animosity arises.

Let me try and explain.

First of all, war is because people want it. If one side of a conflict wants a conflict, it will happen.

If both sides in a conflict wants a conflict it will perhaps happen, according to the reflection of the red lines of each opponent. That is, do we respect the red lines of the other or not.

So, this is what it is about in this conflict, the US put up a red line and Iran stepped over it.

Then Iran retaliated, but now the US holds its guns.

A stalemate is also some kind of peace, but it may not last.

Lets see, but let us also be vigilant.

G-d bless the possible peace.

Understanding

January 9th, 2020 No comments

When I first started on philosophising on strategy a small but very interesting book caught my attention. It is called “The art of war” by Sun Tzu, a Chinese general in the ancient times. It has a lot of hard-won, real life experience with war by the great ancient general.

One of his basic maxims is his understanding of the psychological importance of warfare.

It is written, that in order to win a war, you have to know yourself but off cause more importantly, you have to know your enemy.

So this is the psychology of war, knowing your own mindset in opposition to the mindset of your opponent.

Now who are we here in the West. First of all, at the most basic level, we are vikings. This mentality when it comes to warfare is savage, extremely violent and very, very strong. This is essentially why we rule the world.

On top of this, there is a layer of Roman virtue. That is the values of the Roman empire that was so strong in Germany, France and the UK.

It calls for disciplin but also, as Roman culture was very influenced by greek culture, for Democracy and human rights.

So in fact, we ourselves are a mix of Viking spirit and Roman spirit.

At the other hand, our adversary; the Iranians is a very different culture.

The Iranians or the Persians as they call themselves as a people are an ancient civilisation.

Over many millennia Persia has developed cultural traits that are superb. The first philosopher of Persia, that of Zoroaster was the inventor of the idea of goodness.

This idea is still extremely prevalent in the Iranian culture. They despise all that smells of evil.

This is the reason they are so angry with us. Because we are not really interested in ethics that much. We are much more interested in Freedom.

This cultural background to the conflict is really what it is all about. The Iranians are angry with us, for what they see as evil, we are angry with them for what we see as a lack of freedom.

But, and that is really where it meets a possibility of peace; none of us are really interested in a full scale international war.

This is where we should understand, that neither of us are really evil. We just see things from a different perspective.

Not to say, that we should just accept each others negative behaviour, but understanding each other is point of departure in peacemaking.

G-d bless the good deeds, the good thoughts, and the good actions that we may find.

Fighting a war is a point of ethics

January 7th, 2020 No comments

Well, I have been quite influential in the wars of mr. Barack Obama. They were not all completely successful, to be honest.

But I truly believe, that we amassed some experience, that can be used today.

What are the essential points that we learned from seven years of fighting?

First of all, you need to have a look at the ethics of your fight.

You have to know why you are fighting, and then how you wish to fight.

This was the morale behind the fight with Islamic State. We chose to fight them, because they were against democracy, and obviously inhuman.

So we fought for democracy and for a more humane world.

This basic ethical way of fighting, was so successful, that even Iran, a former enemy joined the fight. Add to this also the Arabs.

So a clear ETHICAL mission is important in modern warfare.

The next thing we realized is the HOW of fighting. With the internet, everybody truly knows what you are doing. It is very difficult to lie about a war.

So before the internet, the Palaestinians and other Middle Eastern combatants could make what you call ‘Potemkin settings’. That is, you manipulate with the footage and pictures you send out to the press.

Now, that is very difficult to do in an open internet world. So Gaza got a thorough hit on that occasion, as their deception was unveiled. This is not to say, that they do everything wrong, just that in this instance, they did loose a lot of credibility.

That was the argument behind smart bombs and precision weaponry. To avoid civilian casualties.

So again, you have to find that difficult ethical way of fighting, that will ensure international support.

Be the good guys.

Maybe this knowledge can help in the current arms race in the Middle East.

G-d bless the peace we CAN find.

Just a simple helping hand

January 4th, 2020 No comments

Well, it seems to me, that the idea of making a YouTube channel in connection to the blog, seems to be a really good idea.

Ok, here is the offering. If you are one of the readers on the blog, and I mean anybody, please, if you wish to be inspired or in any other way, to try and discuss the different issues that I cover here, do not hesitate to ask for an interview. Again, it should be absolutely free. I do not want anyone to think I am bought in any way. I have a reasonable paycheck now, so I do not need money anyway. I have sufficient.

So, if you are reading this, and need to be inspired, just pop me an email.

My loyalty is off cause clear. I go with the Democrats in the US, and the conservatives in the UK.

But, this does not imply, that I will ONLY talk with them. I try to be generous with my work and energy, and do this to help. I believe in a helping hand multiplying. If I help, the help I generate will cause other people to help and so on.

But, please, do not make it a big fuss. Meeting a nondescript philosopher in a far away country, can be a pretty tough thing for my little hometown. I like my town, but truth to be told, it is very far from any kind of mainstream. A little happy city in a far away corner of the world, and if we make too much fuss about it, they will not be able to cope with it.

So a discreet contact, and then just a simple interview would be for the best. Then my hometown can rest a bit more, and we can focus on what it is really all about; the political development that everybody wants to see in the world. To make it better.

So please see it as an offer without any hangs. I use my life to help and support, this is what this new tvstation is all about. Helping, inspiring and supporting the political and religious life.

G-d bless the will to do good in the international community.

Middle of the road

January 4th, 2020 No comments

Well, there is war, and there is peace. As Barack and I did a bit of both, to be honest. Let us have a look at the whys and the hows.

First of all, the first thing that disappears in conflict is the ETHICAL perspective. Often we end up in a tit for tat situation, where one pun is exchanged for another.

Off cause this is not the case with obvious warfaring ideologies. But in most cases in the modern world, we are prone to end up in a vicious cycle of retribution.

Sometimes, you have to fight. Like in the fight with Islamic State. This organization was a threat to the Middle East and the world in general. So we fought them. I have also argued for an open conflict with China. We will end up fighting them anyway due to geostrategic developments that we cannot control.

But the Chinese are emerging as a world power, and they have fought us for four decades behind the scene and with Cold War methods.

As they are expanding to areas that we care about, not the least Hong Kong, war is inevitable.

So we need to stockpile weapons, get our economy in order and so on.

Point being, that war should be a clear choice, based on arguments that exclude the possibility for peace.

Islamic State never wanted peace, so we have to fight them. China has the ability to rein in their advance, but chooses not to.

So we will end up fighting them anyway.

This attitude is the middle road, and thoroughly based on ethics.

If not, then people suffer for no real reason.

I truly believe in that ‘middle of the road’ philosophy. I mean, sometimes you have to fight for your freedom. But most of the time, you should seek for peace, if at all possible.

That middle of the road ideology served us well in the Obama presidency. Hopefully it can continue to do so.

G-d bless the will to find peace, wherever possible.
