Built to last

November 9th, 2021 No comments

Politics is a craft. You need to get people around the table, and create solutions, that all can see themselves in.

Doing that, is extremely difficult. When Barack, Joe and I developed a lot of the driving ideas of Baracks presidentship, we actually solved a lot of the problems we faced. Economically we made the Smithsonian idea of patriotic production, and in terms of war we made a grand alliance behind our war against Islamic State.

But what is it, that is the driving force behind true successes like that. It is depth of understanding, and then it is quality of practical implementation.

It works.

But to get to that point of quality, you need to understand the rights and wrongs of our world today and the theory behind the ideas we wrestle with.

So, as in all other things here in life, the car you drive in can be poor quality or good quality. If it is good quality, you can rely on it, and it will keep you safe in your travels.

If it is of a poor quality, it will break down, and stop in the middle of nowhere.

Right now people are disillusioned with identity politics and fringe left ideas. I think the notion is, that if we all just step into the middle of politics, then we are ok.

That is wrong, the reason why identity politics does not work, is not because it is fringe, it is because it is of a poor quality.

My ideas used to be fringe, now the rule most of the world, why? Because they will keep you driving, as a politician, the extra mile, keep you safe in the awfully destructive world of politics.

We shouldn’t just stabilize on the middle, no, we should keep driving, find new ways of the world. Think about the quality of the world we build.

We want to build good solid houses. Make a good foundation, that future generations can build upon. Make something, that we can be proud of.

Put those brilliant and emblazoned words upon the things we build, and make last, as it is MADE IN AMERICA.

G-d bless the will to find truth in what we do, and make it last.

A greener world

November 9th, 2021 No comments

It seems to me, that the world is centering around a climate change idea.

It is good in the sense, that it unites the world.

I know, that many people have doubts about the wisdom of climate change. But if we understand the agenda in a positive and constructive manner. We can actually do some good to the world.

And, honestly, in many places around the world, pollution and destruction of nature is a problem.

How and why is the issue. Here my advise would be, to focus on the best technologies and methods out there, and then really work on dialogue.

UNDERSTANDING each other be it left or right, is paramount in this development.

We can actually reach across the aisle, and be friends.

Making a greener more sustainable world.

G-d bless the will to make a greener world.

Balance

November 2nd, 2021 No comments

The climate change discussions are essentially a profound discussion on the wealthfare of the world.

How are we going to prioritize the development of the shared ressources.

To understand how this can be done, I truly believe, that we need to UNDERSTAND the ways of the world.

Essentially the world is bounced between order and chaos or, as other call it conservatism and freedom.

Understanding the right decisions in the situation, whether to be conservative or liberal is really the crux of the matter.

One of the major discussions we have had lately is the migration waves that are hitting the shores of Europe. To a staunch liberal perspective, the freedom of migration is paramount. To conservatives the order of the nations is paramount. Finding a balance between these two perspectives is important.

Why, otherwise the states become unhappy and often destabilized.

I know, then we liberals say, don´t build the wall and all that. But the conservatives do have a point in pointing to the fact, that the migration is destabilizing the countries they affect.

Instead of refusing to see this basic fact, we liberals should acknowledge, that there is a problem with migration.

This will hopefully defuse the political conflicts that are building in the major countries in Europe; France and the UK.

Let them have their walls, as long as the true aims of their endevours are positive and focuses on the integrity of the states, the law and the peace of the populace.

We need to understand and recognize, that maybe a little order is important also. The horrendous murders of artists and journalists is a problem. My good friend Lars Vilks has just been murdered, because he stood up for Democracy and free speech.

We need to protect the artists and journalists who defend humanism.

That freedom is more important than freedom of movement, that is the basic argument.

Anyway, let us try to understand each other, and create a better world, instead of just banging our own drum all the time.

Be open, and understanding of our opponents, work across the aisles and make peace.

G-d bless the will to listen to our fellow men. G-d bless the will to find peace.

Pick the winners

Ok, so there is a major summit on climate change coming up, and these are the experiences that I have from Denmark, that the world can use.

First of all, there are essentially two categories to work on. The first is nature, and the second is renewable energy.

Often these two categories tend to get mixed, and you get a less than desireable result.

Take the discussion on the reduction of CO2 gasses. This is a problem due to excessive use of fossile fuel, and not really a problem due to food production, here other issues are important.

So we need to reduce the CO2 emission by reducing the consumption of fossile fuel, not by reducing food production.

FOOD PRODUCTION
My experience with this agenda is riddled with a lot af drama. First our current PM tried the hard way, resulting in mass demonstrations and awful, terrible destinies for the involved minkproducers.

This has almost toppled her government, and these days she is fighting for her life in politics.

So learning from this mistake, the next phase was much more positive. Here she really worked on dialogue, reaching out to the farmers, crafting a solution across the aisle. Perfectly executed, and really good work.

So, this is how it should be done, through dialogue and understanding. We need to talk about it, and find solutions across the aisle.

What has materialized out the long, long negotionations is a plan to DEVELOP the farming industri in a more green direction, using new technical systems and tools. There are many under development.

The same goes for the fishing industry, that is trying to find a constructice way out of the conundrum of climate change discussion.

We need to really respect the farmers and the fishermen, they are hardworking, industrious, nature loving people.

So by RESPECTING these people, we can get somewhere.

RENEWABLE ENERGY
So, the next issue that is really interesting is renewable energy. Here creativity and new ideas are really the way forward. We have so many good ideas in the industry, power to x, thorium energy, windmills, solar panels, energy produced out of farming waste and so on. We have hyperloop, electric cars and many other new tech.

As any other business field, because essentially it is just business, though ethical business, trial and error must rule, and the best ideas must win.

Make it a free thinking environment of technical developement, and we will have some interesting new ideas to rule the day.

But again RESPECT the new ideas, by giving them recognition. Make a Nobel price for the best green idea, cover the new items in the news and so on. Be respectful and positive, and then pick the winners.

G-d bless the will to find new ways for climate change.

Unity

October 29th, 2021 No comments

So, one of the things, that I have wondered a bit about, is the fact that, I never get any enemies really. And the enemies, that I try to pick, get really sad about it, and try to get to be friends again. At least internationally, not really here in Denmark.

But, I have wondered quite a bit about it, and reading the book Sefer Yetzirah, a jewish book on ethics, it really comes into focus.

According to this book, wisdom and unity is linked.

That is why my ideas always seem to get people together, because in all humility, I am wise.

So, when we talk about unity, this is the tool that can bring unity in the world; wisdom. True wisdom.

That is the fate of Israel, to bring wisdom to the world, and thereby unite the world in peace.

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

Being human

October 28th, 2021 No comments

I have been thinking a lot about the late interview with the Suidlanders. It is a REALLY difficult discussion.

On one side, I do not accept any kind of racism against blacks. I know how it is to be scorned and ridiculed. Right now in my town Aalborg, there is a lot of bad blood running in the gutters, and it is running in my direction.

At the other hand, white people, or just people from the north are also just people. So, we need to take this into consideration.

Things can go both ways, and it is when we end up in being inhumane, on both sides, that I really believe, that humanism is not allowed.

Being humane, is what it is about, in both directions. We need to be able to see our fellowmen as men and women, not just a skin.

I mean, how do you put ethics into skin?

Being true to unity as a vibe that goes beyond skin, is what is important. That black and white, yellow and brown are able to live side by side.

Being honest and humane to each other.

G-d bless the will to be a good man, in a situation, where the bad blood is running. Being honest, humble and humane to all. G-d bless the will to be serious and strong in the conviction that we are all made in the image of spirit.

The Suidlanders

October 20th, 2021 No comments

The Suidlanders is a civil rights organisation of South Africa, demanding justice and rights to be reinstalled to white people of South Africa.

I have had a conversation with Mr. Roche who is a leading spokesperson for the organisation. To hear him speak is like a window into another reality, living in a system where the government is essentially breaking down.

I know, that this is difficult to talk about, but we need to talk about it, due to the severity of the situation in South Africa.

Please listen, and consider supporting Suidlanders.

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

The Suidlanders

October 19th, 2021 No comments

These days South Africa is in turmoil, and the rainbow nation, that everybody hoped to make, is deteoriating.

For me, as a spiritual person, this makes me sad.

Now, dont get me wrong, sacrifice, injustice is what it is. It has no color.

I was a great fan of the whole process of antiapartheid, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela. The forces they opposed were horrible. I can reflect my own fight in theirs. Civil rights, Democracy, humanism.

But these days the white people of South Africa are in danger, just as the blacks were under apartheid. I know that that is a controversial thing, and people dont like to talk too much about it. But suffering and hardship does not have a color.

One of the leaders of the South African white civil rights organizations have reached out to me, to relay their plight.

I will do that. As I have seen on the internet and through social media, the whites are the ones that suffers these days.

One wrong, does not make another wrong right.

So if white people are suffering, they should be protected, just as black people.

I am brown, so this has nothing to do with color, but with minority protection.

I know that this is controversial, but this is not about being popular, but about people suffering. If I can help these people, the Suidlanders, I will.

So, I have accepted the invitation to do an interview, and will make it tomorrow.

I hope you see my intentions as clean and honourable.

I do not accept Apartheid in any way, but minorities are minorities black or white. If it was the black under the thumb of the opressors, I would root for them.

G-d bless the wisdom and honesty of a cause. G-d bless the will to be humane in a hostile world.

Fathers and daughters

October 18th, 2021 No comments

When you loose some in your life, as I have just done due to a divorce, you need to be careful what you do. All of a sudden you have new responsibilities, but also new freedoms.

I am conservative, and I am a family loving type of person. I adore my kids, and would do anything for them.

I know, that sometimes this goes contrary to my international career. I would like to be an international star, travelling around in the world, being famous and all that.

But at the end of the day, leaving my kids because of my career, is not an option. When your exspouse wants to “break the glassloft” and have a career, then you have to ask yourself, if you want to go down that road, or stay with the kids.

To be absolutely honest, if a career means leaving my kids at the mercy of the ins and out of daycare, then the career is just not worth it.

This is my choice, I choose my kids over my career.

I know, that it hinders a lot of the work I am supposed to do, with international politics, and supporting the international community, and I will, to the best of my ability, free of charge.

So that is my choice, I will always pick my kids over my own ambition, because that is what a father is supposed to do.

See?

Choosing love in the near relationship over your own ambition is the right thing to do. I mean, how are those little creatures supposed to survive in a difficult world, if it was not for their fathers to sacrifice themselves for them?

That is love, sacrifice for those you carry in your hands.

G-d bless the will to shed your own ambition to help and serve.

The new threats

October 18th, 2021 No comments

Ok, we are in trouble. Radical islam is rising in the West. One of my very good friends mr. Lars Vilks was just assasinated, most probably, and the attacks are in legion these days.

Lately the attack on the British MP Sir David Amess, is another attack in a string of attacks.

The enemy is within the gates, and they are getting bold.

One of the main things that is pretty evident, is the fact, that the police is not up to the job. In Norway, where the killing spree was pretty fast and devasting, it was mainly because the police was not up to the job. Lars Vilks was killed sitting in a police car, and so on and so forth.

This points to the fact, that we need to do some refinement and upgrading of the police force.

I dont know about all of Europe, in fact in France they seem to be on the ball. They have installed the valiant republican troops to protect democracy.

This brings more security, and it kind of puts the conflict out in the open.

This is the next step, here France is leading the way.

We need to follow the example of France, and shift focus from a police lead security operation, to a military lead operation.

The military deals with war, fighting the Al-Qeada, the islamic state and so on, in war.

So we need to apply the adequate tools to solve the problem.

It could be implemented in all of Europe, and go hand in hand with the new ambitions of a shared fighting force, if that is a priority.

At the same time, we need to understand, that if we veer to much to the fringes of politics, as we have been doing lately, things start to unravel.

The fringes are idealistic and want to change things in a fast manner, the center listens to the fringes, but change things slowly and in a controlled manner.

This is how politics is supposed to be. Be careful not to go to fast.

The whole debacle with China is also warming up, so we are seeing a two front war these days, and that is difficult to fight.

But we are having new friends, India is really warming up to Denmark, and thank you for that, we will be friends.

Anyway, we need to shift security focus from police to military, and let the generals do what they do best; protect the nations of the West.

G-d bless the will to be protective of the citizens.

The temple of Solomon

October 12th, 2021 No comments

Understanding ethics, or moral virtue, you need to see your life in the glow of spirituality.

One of the most splendid or indeed wonderful roots of ethics is the root of Phoenicia.

Phoenicia being an ancient culture of commerce, learning and spirituality.

When we jews erected the first temple of Israel, we were helped doing so, by the Phoenicians.

My point is, perhaps not only did the Phoenicians help us in a physical way, building the temple, but also gave us some of their wisdom.

The tree of Kabbalah has a pretty obvious reflection in the first temple by the two columns at the front of the temple, reflecting the two columns of the tree of life, which is a core ethical system of judaism.

So in order to understand the depth of the cabbalistic tree, we need to see it reflected in the phoenician world. They invented the tree, probably, as they inveted the very system I write with, the alfabet, they invented and commerce.

How were the Phoenicians? They were so peaceful. Their world was a world without any fighters, just walls to keep out the invaders.

This peaceful way of life, is the aim of judaism, if the kabbalistic tree is the foundation on which we build.

Remember, peace. But not a naive or uneducated peace. A peace that actually do work, as it did for millenia for the Phoenicians. A beautiful, lasting and wonderful peace, with abundance and happiness.

G-d bless the will to understand a way to find peace in this world.

Paradise

September 28th, 2021 No comments

When we talk about light opposed to darkness, us being humanists, what is the “light” we talk about. “The shining light at the top of the hill”?.

To understand this, we need to go to the root of the understanding. The root of the understanding is the Egyptian lore of the ancients.

These illustrious people who lived thousands and thousands of years ago lived with a plethora of spirits, g-ds and creeds.

The main ideology of the classical Egyptian kingdom was the temple of Amun Ra, the g-d of light and the sun.

That islam, christianity and judaism is essentially a light religion is still recognized in the fact that we end all prayers with the calling of Ra, we just say Amen, that is Amun, originally. Remember Moses was an egyptian prince, and he installed the Egyptian sun worship in the jewish religion that then became christianity and islam as well.

So when we say “Amen” what we do essentially is to recognize Amun-Ra.

So what was he, this sun g-d? He was the fierce g-d og vitality, joy and life.

The sunlight brings life. The illustrious g-d was g-d for positive energy.

Opposed to him was the death of darkness. The lethargic life, no vibrancy, a static society of corruption.

That is what light is, it is life. Humanism is then a creed of life, something we can celebrate in climate initiatives, but we should also remember, that WE as people should be alive, well and happy. Because that is what the monotheistic religions are really about.

Being in that state is the RESULT of religous endavors. Happiness, respect, humility, sacrifise is there to make a world where we are shining, healthy and simply happy.

To get there, we need to dream and apply our fierce work to create a world that makes it possible to reach that state. That is the dream of America, essentially.

A paradise of happy people.

G-d bless the will the keep the American dream alive.

The American dream, the uniter

September 24th, 2021 No comments

You know, to unite, you need a way to do it. You need a path, some waypoints, a little help from your friends.

But at the end of the day, you need goals and destiny.

The American dream has always been the deal of all Americans, but it is through lack of attention to that dream, that it seems to disappear.

I mean, are we really supposed to scold each other all the time? Call each other bad names and so on?

Or are we to find a middle path, a beautiful path of light, as my great grand uncle Andreas Engberg used to call it. He said, that he walked on the path of light to reach his folk.

Now embarking on that path, you need to understand, that the way and the voyage is difficult. You need to reach a new frontier.

But the path itself will, hopefully, be worth the struggle.

Now, what is it that we try reach? The mirage, the hallowed hall on the top of the hill?

In a sense it is Eden, the promised land.

But what is Eden? Eden is the very first city of the Middle East, called Eridu. It is where all the ideas of the world was essentially created; rule of law, religion and all these elements that make up what we call our civilization.

So reaching the goal, is to be very good at making law, doing Democracy, being a wise good man in a world filled with chaos. That is what it is about. The hard work, the beauty of your life with perhaps gal at your side.

That is the dream, to be a simple, humanistic yet wonderful person, living a family life.

But often the dreams we have are stripped away, we all know how this is. Yet the dream is still there, calling on us to live a normal life.

Tolstoi, the famous Russian writer started his Anna Karenina with the saying, that all good families look alike, and all bad families are different from each other. Why? Because reaching that dream finally, is a set goal. It is written in the Bible, and is a set of rules and good principles that will eventually give all that follow these ideas a good life.

So, maybe it is time to reach for that dream, and give people a chance at reaching their own little Eden; a set of naughty kids and beautiful wife, who knows, maybe even a house with your name on. You can get a dog as well.

These simple things are what heaven is made of; loving people around you, and good value to your name.

That is the American dream.

G-d blew the will to find bliss and harmony in this world.

Balance

September 22nd, 2021 No comments

Well, my life has been a bit of a rollercoaster. From the beginning with the Mohammad cartoon crisis, over the Obama administration and now to some kind of reconciliation.

I have given it a bit of thought, on how to keep the balance between the international work and the national work I do here in Denmark.

The problem is, that there is an imbalance.

Two years ago, I managed to initiate a small TV station, with the help of the government here in Denmark, thank you for that. At least now, I am not so hard pressed economically.

The problem is, that it chains my focus on Denmark quite a lot. I do a lot of interviews, and travel around in Northern Denmark.

It gives me a lot of insight, since, I get to talk to a lot of wise people, but it constrains my focus on international politics.

Ok, here is a way perhaps to do something about it. First of all, there was a job, that was in the plans. That job could be a way to support my international focus.

It would make a balance between making money here in Denmark, and making money in the US.

But, and this where my “demands” comes into play. I cannot move to the US.

I can do a lot of work from Denmark, and travel from time to time, but I will remain a citizen of Denmark.

But, if you want to make some kind of arrangement that would make that possible, it could work.

What I do is to construct societies. I am a political architect. This requires little research and testing in the sense, that I deduce my ideas. The ideas I work with are already tested by time, that is why they also work in the present.

Take my discussion on progressive tax. It comes from a discussion Democritus has on equality. It is not the idea of Karl Marx, he got it from Democritus.

So knowing, that this idea is ancient and has worked under certain circumstances, I know how to make it work today.

That is what I do, in all the areas that I work.

Off cause it should ideally, be tested before it is put into the society. Often when philosophers have new ideas, they are tested on countries and people, without their knowing, that is essentially using people as guineapigs.

The western society is a complex and intricate system, containing religion, political ideals, administration, military.

It is extremely complex, if you poke it here, you need to know what the effects are.

So, you have to be careful, that is why you like me, because you know, that, within, reason, what I recommend is not going to topple the boat.

Anyway, my point was, that what could be a kind of solution to my difficulty in reenergising the british/american discussion, would be to have two jobs, one in each country. That would make it possible for me, to discuss the issues of America, England and Denmark. Not a bad bunch of countries in my mind, we are very much the same, have the same systems and aspire to the same ideals.

Anyway, that was my reflection on getting myself to a place, where I can share my time and energy more equally between Denmark, England and the US.

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

The soul of the people

September 22nd, 2021 No comments

Dear Joe, well things are shaping up a bit.

Here are some further reflections to your current development of the political work.

First of all, you need to be realistic about the socialistic ideals. If you start taxing according to progressive tax, you need to watch the borders more.

The point is, as Lycurgus, the founder of Sparta argues, if you build a community where the rich pays to the poor, that is egality, you need to make sure, people have a personal relationsship to each other. Solidarity requires personal attachment.

This is the basic flaw of Marxist thinking.

Community requires a shared base of values.

Now, I get it, it sounds nice with a lot of care for the poor, payed by the rich. But we need to be realistic about the system. If we are not, the system breaks down. Lycurgus was quite adamant on this point, so we need to heed him, as I see it.

This brings the whole discussion border control and so on into perspective. Because, then what?

Point is, to be honest, we need to choose between open borders and a wealth faresystem.

That is the truth of it.

What you choose is off cause up to discussion, but Lycurgus is right, and Karl Marx was wrong in not hearing him.

That is the lay of the land, I am sorry, but that is the truth of it.

But then, when you realise this truth, what you can do, is to envision that society that you want. Create that utopia.

The soul of the people, needs to be nurtured and cared for, that is the aim of American politics as I see it.

G-d bless the will to be honest and keep America as a dream.
