Non violence II

These past two weeks have really tested the very core of the United States of America, not really on a material level, on things built or other physical things, but on a moral level.

This is really what this is about, do we continue having faith in the IDEAS of the United States or do we falter and lose faith in the ideas that the country was built on.

The core tenant that was tested was that of non violence. Non violence is a genuine American idea made by Henry David Thoreau Walden.

He looked at the little acorn first burrowing in the soil, then sprouting and then growing into a tree.

He saw in this something sacred and profound, the sacredness of life.

In this perhaps insignificant observation something beautiful and lasting grew.

The RESPECT for life as an essence of Humanistic Americanism.

Something that gave us Ghandi, rev. King among others.

This true American legacy, the inherent respect for life is what was a stake, and still is at stake in wake of the Corona crisis. Do we go all hay wire violent, or do we actually respect the sanctity of life?

It actually goes both ways, and it also calls to a possible way out of this mess.

Please let us remind ourselves, of the worth of life. We cannot take it away just because it is in our way, and we CANNOT excuse the destruction that the grief of a lost life gives us.

Non violence is, at the core, a story about that sprouting acorn. Still that acorn is not felled, please let us take care of it, and eventually rest under the foil of its branches.

Because, at the core, that is what the United States of America is about. A carefulness about that life that is in our world.

G-d bless the United States of America.

Non violence?

These new online infiltration techniques, that may have been behind the latest Black Lives matter campaign are what they are. They are trolling. As the internet is filled with people who are there to ruin the debate, by provoking the discussion into a line that is unconstructive these Black Live matters are the same, just stupid memes to stir up trouble.

Don’t get me wrong, I truly believe in rev. Kings legacy. That of finding a peaceful way to live with each other, brothers and sisters black and white.

But what I also truly believe in, is non violence, in the dialogue.

We have enemies, as the islamists, as China, but we shouldn’t treat each others as enemies, we need to be strong together.

Looting and pillaging is not getting stronger or finding unity, it is the opposite. That is the way it is.

To demand justice and sympathy, the real truth is, that you need to earn it. Justice and sympathy is something you gain and make yourself. It is your own actions that will give you an image.

That is why burning down churches is not the way to go. Seriously, a church.

Rev. King was a man of G-d he respected all men of any cloth, and his mark as a preacher was to respect and dream of a better world. A world without violence, a world where you could live side by side.

Non violently.

This is very important to remember. And to me a sound and even voice that tries to recall that vibe and ethos is what is needed. Not more agression and destruction. We have enough other problems to deal with.

Please G-d, bless the great nation, and make it whole.

Cold war

The latest attack on American soil is pretty devious. Let us take a historical look at it. In the 70´ties cold war attacks were mainly done by infiltration of media, culture and academia. In Denmark we had “no atomic power movement”, that was devised by KGB.

In the US there were numerous other attempts at undermining the American society.

Now, since we are getting into a kind of cold war with China, and partly Russia, what would the next step of cold war be, in a socialmedia driven world. Well, you probably get; social media.

How does social media work, it works by driving a narrative by some subculture or other, to inflame peoples minds and feelings, and generating general mayhem.

Does that ring a bell?

Black lives matter?

All lives matter, but the whole structure of the riots do look like a cold war media manipulation attempt.

I have no prove off this, but truly who benefits the most of these riots that just to come out of nowhere, exactly at a point where Hong Kong was in trouble. Well, Hong Kong suffers and China wins.

So we have a blatant cold war mover here, using the net and probably collaborators within the US.

At least this is how cold war moves usually were, probably still is.

What to do about that.

Well it is pretty simple, keep attention on Hong Kong, douse the rebellions, be kind but not weak, and get to the bottom of it on the internet.

Dont buy the bait of going into a fight with these guys.

And off cause, help the black voters and workers. They are as mush a casualty of the this kind of manipulation.

Start to see through the deception, and stop the onslaught.

G-d bless the United States of America.

How to find peace

We have to understand the riots to understand what to do about them.

Listen, I understand the insecurity and desperation many feel due to the Coronavirus. Mr. Trump has not really delivered here, and so people get frustrated, and helpless.

But, look at the statistics, he has actually had a bit of a comeback, and is making progress. We need to give him that, after he started working on the Chlorochine scheme, things are actually moving a bit forward.

This gives a bit of hope, a small light at the end of the tunnel.

Yes, all the hard handedness of the poor black guy who got killed by a white policeman, is off cause wrong, but this is not the reason to torch whole cities.

It is the frustration over the Coronavirus that takes a mean turn.

What is the best course of action? It is to fix the economy after all the hits it has taken, get people back to work, and see some progress again.

Here is my recommendation:

1. Put in motion huge packages of relief, but focus on jobs. Those patriotic, yes, American companies that hires right now, help them even more. All those who have lost their jobs, make some kind of temporary arrangement to keep them fed.
2. Look at the root of the problem: China. Who is benefiting right now? Is the the US, or is it China?

So, please reconsider the two complicated perspectives of this riot, and help each other instead of fighting each other. It doesn’t help a anybody.

Please reconsider this, and try to find some peace.

G-d bless the peace that CAN be found.

The light from Bagsvaerd

There is a sound medical producer in Denmark called Novo Nordisk. It has produced medicine for diabetes patients for many, many years, and I happen to know some of them.

It is a company, that seems like one of those medical companies, that you can actually trust and respect.

When the craze of valuedriven, ethical leadership was over the world, Novo Nordisk went all in, so much, that they almost did it too much, and things started to went sideways economically.

They call it the light from Bagsvaerd, since Bagsvaerd is the place they live and produce their medicine.

In contrary to big pharma, Novo Nordisk is a fund, that has no other point to their existence, than to help people in Denmark and around the world.

When the founder died, he made a trust, where no one could get any profit. The company was and is contained in itself.

It was at the same time, as when mr. Niels Bohr, the danish physician went to the US, and gave inspiration to the Copenhagen school of working, that gave us Open source, and free working environment. An idea used today at Facebook and Google.

The point being, that it is about the light of creating. Not usury and money, but creating something that will actually help other people.

These are your roots, maybe it is time to try to find these roots again?

Being a doctor is about healing and helping people. Not make money on it.

G-d bless the will to be enlightened in medicine also.

Medicine

Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim [Paracelsus].

I am not an expert in medicine, I know something about the essential principles, but apart from that, my knowledge of this leading industrial arm of Western culture is limited.

We must however be honest about the current problems, that the crisis of the Covid has unearthed.

A large portion of our medicinal practice is corrupted by money and earning.

This is a true problem.

Apart from this, there is also a lack of humility in the industry towards other parts of the world, and their traditions.

Let us have a look at it.

When Paracelsus initiated chemichal medicine in the wake of the plagues, he did it roaming around Europe and its vicinity with his ubiquitous broadsword.

Let us be honest about the founder of moderne medicine. He was part scoundrel, drunk and genius.

Where was his genius, and how may we use this today.

His genius lay, in the fact, that he went away from the corruption of the day, that of high minded philosophers proscribing useless medicine at excobiant prices.

Does that ring a bell?

His idea was to look for what worked. He travelled around in the known world, and experimented with alchemical procedures on folk medicine.

That is the core of modern medicine; what works tranferred with chemical procedures in opposition to highminded greedy philosophers.

Heed that calling, again today, and we may just save modern medicine.

G-d bless the will of Paracelsus.

Adam Smith and Keynes

Ok Boris, listen starting up the society by infusing loaned money into society by using Keynesian methods is a stupid idea.

This is the reason why.

First of all, Keynes was an economist and not a philosopher like Adam Smith. Adam Smith had a more eclectic view on his theories than Keynes, and actually did make ideas, that worked, like international trade.

Keynes is, in the hall of philosophers, not even mentioned. Why? Because his ideas are simple, does not really understand economy, and thus are poor to work with.

So, let us have a true view on economy.

What is economy? According to Aristotle, economy is political housekeeping. Making the budgets meet, and, as a good housewife, save a penny for the times of trouble. That is essentially what economics is.

So, how is it with the wealth of nations? According to Adam Smith, wealth of nations is something you make by trading freely. That is, the goods that Great Britain make can be traded with the goods other nations make.

The point being, that it is the GOODS that it is all about. That is the effect of MANUFACTURE.

See, this is where Keynes does see the ups and downs of economics.

Let me explain in a simpler and more true way.

So, economics means housekeeping of nations. Then how does that system of wealth creation work in this metaphore, you could say?

Well, in housekeeping you sometimes make something in the house, or rather pa does, right?

Pa can be a smith or a builder of furniture.

By making things, he earns a living for the household. So ma keeps the budget, pa makes things. See?

So in this understanding, in order to make money, do you lend ma money to buy things, or help pa in his smithy?

Keynes idea is to lend ma money, so that she buys new furniture and paves the path to the door.

My idea is to help pa DIRECTLY, so that he makes better things.

See?

Keynes idea will work, it will make ma buy things from other households, but the problem is, as Adam Smith points out. Ma does not necessarily buy thing from WITHIN the nation, but often buy things over the internet, like …. from China.

So the money that was supposed to help the NATION on its feet, effectively only work with 50 percent of the money spent, and the rest goes to our competitors.

Thereby weakening the economy long term.

It’s an easy fix, but like any easy fixes. It will bring a little warmth here and now, but long term, as our competitors grow stronger because we gave them orders on borrowed money, it weakens us.

I don’t know the advice you get, but please fire them, and get someone a bit more competent. This is not worth you and my project.

Use philosophy, not economics.

G-d bless the will of Adam Smith.

Having jobs

Ok, when we have tackled the Coronavirus challenge, we have to, at the same time, work on our businesses.

This how we did it in Denmark, we did not do it perfectly, but we did some things ok.

We put a security net under the businesses, so that the businesses did not have to fire any employees.

This means, that now when the crisis is over, our businesses are able to get up and running pretty fast.

This the focus of a opening of society. To get the businesses up and running as fast as possible.

Use the money allocated for the task by the state to make this happen.

There have been some rumble and discussion on the issue, since the rules were a little inflexible.

But the whole helping package was made in cooperation with the businesses that are threatened.

Talking and communicating can get you a long way.

So in order to make a package for the opening of society, try to help those poor families that are in need of support.

Give them a helping hand, by giving them the opportunity to get back their jobs.

Union will hopefully back this Joe, because having jobs are kind of what it is all about being a worker, right?

Instead of headbutting in this situation, try to reach out and cooperate with the owners of businesses.

It can be done.

G-d bless the will to make things work again, after the crisis.

Corona

It seems to me, that people do not understand how to treat the Coronavirus.

Really it is not rocket science. What we are dealing with is a disease, that is transferred via hands, touching things that others have touched and so on.

So it is really quite simple to cut the chains of the disease spreading.

All you have to do, is to find the weak link and cut it there.

How do we do that?

Well here we really have to methods. One is testing the other is tracking.

How do we test? Well that is also quite simple, what you do, is to make the test as widely accessible as possible.

In Israel we have built special booths for that purpose. But if that is not possible, surveillance over the weakest citizens of the country is mandatory. Elderly homes should be tested over, really.

You have, also the ability to track people with gizmos and gadget, that is phoneapps that communicate. Getting these methods underway are pretty much a no brainer.

But last, not least. The entire discussion on Chlorochine treatment is a bogus. Yes it works, so use it.

With these simple precautions, the entire country should be up and running pretty fast.

Then the other discussion is the economy. Which is the next question we need to address.

That will be a posting for tomorrow.

But also here we have time tested methods, that can take the industry back from China.

G-d bless the will to be vigilant and forceful in these matters.

Progress

Political development is 99% reuse of old ideas, and 1 % new ideas.

That is the way it is with all kind of political development.

Take the development of Democracy. It is a mix of law state that comes from Plato, that again comes from Hammurabi or Nebuchadnezzar, the Babylonian kings.

And a mix of the right of the citizens to be free. Again an idea that stems from ancient Athens, and the viking states here up north.

Free men on bikes, horses, boats or any kind of vehicle really have their ancestors, the vikings to thank for their urge for freedom.

Point being, that political principle is reuse over reuse over reuse.

Then, sometimes, a little extra i added to the mix. Like free trade, or my ideas of loyalty of the production apparatus and so on.

But compared to the idea of freedom and the justice of the law, these things are really small, small things.

We the people, is an ancient and tremendously deep beckoning, called by so many generations, that we have lost number.

We are just small, inferior holders of the light, compared to those who came before.

So to be a progressive, you need to stand on a firm foundation.

We do not go away from what the founders said or had of opinion, we, humbly, build on the edifices they raised with so much toil and through some very hard times.

That is a true progressive to my mind, not a destroyer, but a humble craftsman, building on the base of those who came before us.

This does not mean, we should not work with fervor and fire. We should keep that flame alive. But it does mean, that we should respect those who came before us.

There were some strong men and hopefully women who wrote those amendments, we need to hold them in regard and respect them.

Continue the work on that beautiful structure and valley of dreams.

Otherwise we will lose our perspective of what this is all about.

That would not serve us, we should be rebuilders, not the opposite.

That will propel us to a new world, where dreams are dreamt, and we remain most important of all; free.

G-d bless the will to be strong in the face of the challenges ahead, we will pull through, if we have faith in the dreams people before us dreamt.

Denmark socialist?

There has been some discussion wether Denmark is a Socialist country or not, meaning, if we are communists, why do we even have a say internationally. Since communism has been the scourge of the Earth pretty much.

Well to be honest, me myself, I am a conservative. I recognize some ideas of communism, namely progressive tax, the fight for equality between people, sexes and so on.

But I am a bible thumping, familiy loving passionate, patriot.

When I listen to music, my preferred go to is country music, and I really love the Mid West.

I also really like the workers, and strive to make a society, where they have a place. Dumping them under the bus, was, to my mind, a great mistake.

Then, my father was from Bangladesh, a migrant to Denmark. So you couldn’t really call me a white supremacist.

In other words, saying that some of the ideas that I have given to the US are communist, just doesn’t make sense.

Add to this, I have taken my mother’s Jewish roots, and now walk around with a star of David around my neck.

With such a melting pot of ideas and background, that I have been put into the world with. What I try to do, is to make sense of it all, and then I try to make a better world with what we have got.

This is not some high minded idealism. Yes off cause it is idealistic, but at the core, it is a lot of practicality. We have some problems, we need a way to fix them.

Socialism or communism is not Marxism. Yes Marx is a central figure of socialism, but before and after Marx, there have been many ideas, some good, some bad.

What you get with the Danish strand of thought is not Marxism. We are not dreaming of taking over the world. We are the janitors or craftsmen of the world.

We see a house that needs repair, and we start making repairs.

G-d bless the will to do good in this world.

Words

Listen Joe, in order to prepare yourself for the nigthmare of an election of mr. Trump, you need to be prepared for his special way of fighting.

Don’t’ get me wrong, I am not one of the finger pointers of the left, saying that mr. Trump is a evil man, he is not.

But you must admit, that his style is pretty unconventional.

Democritus say, that the words hold a shadow of the deeds. Meaning, that if you can call out something or someone with truth, it is a powerful weapon. So what mr. Trump does, is that he finds his opponents weaknesses and focus on them.

Crooked Hillary, little rocket man in North Korea.

So in order to counter that, you need to be honest. Because honesty is your best weapon against that onslaught.

You also need to be ready to fight back.

I mean to be honest, what is the difference between calling mr. Romney “outsourcer in chief” and calling Hillary crooked?

It is a part of the game, a dirty part, but you have to be prepared.

In other words, think about what you will do when mr. Trump opens his war on you, what are your counterstrokes, what will he focus on, and what will you call him?

I don’t like name calling, but I do believe, that you have to be prepared to fight that fight also

Modern politics is like that, like it or not.

G-d bless the best man at the election, and let us hope it does not get more dirty than it needs to be.

Categories: Politics Tags:

To enter a knife fight

One thing that will be an issue in this next election is the difference between worth of the two opponents.

Worth is, according to Democritus, the hall mark of a respected leader.

I mean, mr. Trump has his qualities, and I, for one, do not think he is a bad man. He is not, the fight against the corruption of the American society he has done, speaks to the opposite.

But one must admit, that he has a vicious mouth.

What does that imply for the Democratic contest? Well, it does bring some sharp knives to the fight, and even though we like to keep things civil, elections are, for better or worse, a competition, and personal strength in a fight actually does matter. The world is a dangerous place, and being able to protect the country is a vital part of the job of being president.

So what are my comments to the public Facebook methods of Mr. Trump?

Well, my stance on it is, that the more you are foul of mouth, the more you need to be ethical in your actions.

But when Biden is to start the fight with mr. Trump, he needs to bring his own knives into the fight. It will certainly not be won with niceties, if will be a back ally knife fight, and Joe, you better be prepared.

G-d bless the will to be good in a difficult situation.

Schools

Ok, here are my thoughts on how to create a new Eden in the US, and thus keep the American dream alive.

Let me give you some insight as to how we here in Denmark had a parallel development to the US two hundred years ago.

At that time, the ideas of Democracy and the rule of the people started, and the leading intellectual N.F.S. Grundtvig tried to understand how we could make a Democracy in Denmark.

He concluded, that without a wise people, there would be no Democracy. So he started what is called the “Hoejskolebevaegelse”. In essence it was a string of schools with the sole purpose to educate the people to make a Democracy.

The beauty of that project was, that it worked.

The Hoejskolebevaegelse really educated the Danes, not in cold arithemtics, but in wisdom of life.

That is really what I takes to make a good society, to make a school that do not only focus on the knowledge of learning, but much more on the CULTURE of a democracy.

The reason why I wholeheartedly believe in this idea, is because my family is a Hoejskolefamily, and at Vallekilde Hoejskole, thoroughly inspired by Oxford and Cambridge, used to be a paradise itself.

When people came to Vallekilde, they felt that they had entered Eden.

See?

You have to make schools little Edens, little wheels in that American dream.

If people are thought to be good, have knowledge about things in the world, then Democracy will work.

There should be a Hoejskole in a place called Tyler, as far as I remember in the US.

Folk enlightenment is such a strong idea, that it is the proverbial sister of the American dream.

Hand in hand, these two ideas, can and will recreate and elevate the American dream.

Because building that Utopia in America has happened before, thus it can happen again.

It is a matter of a fight to do so, to support the dream, to make it happen. Here the schools are the main jewel of that dream.

A dream that requires good teachers and a motivated school.

Let it be, that the American dream is revitalized and is there for also future generations to strive for.

G-d bless the dreams we can realize if we work hard enough.

Thanks guys

There comes a time, where one needs to hand on the power to the next generation. Why? Because clinging on to power is often abuse, and it hinders the flow of development.

This time has finally come to me, it is time for me, to hand on the responsibility and power to the next generation.

As of now, I simply cannot be responsible anymore.

My situation is like this; I have been sick for the last 8 – 9 months. In the course of putting up the tv station, my back has been totally wrecked. I cannot move more than two times a day, that is picking up my kid, and then do something else.

This is not something I say to reach out for help, I do generally not reach that out for help, but just to be honest about my situation.

It is not possible for me, to support the Liberals in the next election, simply because, I do not have the energy to do it.

I will support the best I can, but to take that general responsibility that I have done until now, is simply not possible.

Hopefully, after getting better, I can be back in a stronger position. But not now.

I am sorry, but you also have to be able to give away the power, when you are not able to carry the weight.

I for one will not be the person, that clings to power, just because I like it.

I prefer to relinquish it, and give it on to the next generation of intellectuals.

So this is not a good buy, but a thank you for helping me in the political Change, that I have been able to participate in.

I will continue developing the ideas about the American dream, and the other ideas, that I am currently working on. But the energy to fight in elections is not available for me right now. I am sorry Joe, I wished I could do better for you. But for you to rely on me in a situation where I cannot walk, let alone be responsible for some of the most difficult elections processes in the world, is not fair for you either.

I need to recuperate, and get well, before I can do anything more.

Thank you all, and;

G-d bless you.
