Crudity As A Political Weapon

Crudity As A Political Weapon

“Pee, poop and toilet paper are all that belongs in the toilet”. These are the words of a governmental anti-rat campaign that ran last year in Oslo, Norway. On its surface the words ring true, food scraps stuck in the sewers serve as food for hungry rats and encourage breeding. Throwing non-degradable sanitary and hygiene products into the toilet can clog the pipes, allowing easy access for the rat population. As such the campaign seems to make a lot of…

Problems in LGBT-land

Problems in LGBT-land

In my country dissent on this topic is absolutely “haram”. Support for both LGBT-people and the associated political agenda is almost mandatory. I find the lack of separation between acceptance of LGBT-persons as individuals and LGBT-politics troubling. Personally, I’m very much of a libertarian on the personal aspects of LGBT-persons. Whatever they do in the privacy of their own home is their own business. But the LGBT-politics we have seen sweeping the Western world is a different matter. The problems…

Policing in The Age of Information Warfare: Neo-Nazi March

Policing in The Age of Information Warfare: Neo-Nazi March

More than any other current issue, the public debate over how the Norwegian police handled the recent protest march by the Nordic Resistance Movement has captured my interest. As can be expected the calls for the free speech rights of this particular group to be suppressed aren’t far between. As somewhat of a free speech fundamentalist myself, I find it deeply troubling that there seems to be so few people capable or willing to take a principled approach to this…

Free Speech For Me, Not For You

Free Speech For Me, Not For You

The fallout continues over a banned demonstration in a small Norwegian city. A neo-Nazi group wanted to hold a demonstration with the theme “crush the gay lobby”. They applied for a permit from the police, which was initially granted. After it became publicly known that this particular group wanted to demonstrate, left-wing counterdemonstrators threatened violence. The permit was then withdrawn by the police citing public safety concerns. Today I read a piece sent in by a reader to one of…

The Case for Political Pride

The Case for Political Pride

The celebration of LGBT persons known as «Pride» has to a large extent been very successful. In Western countries LGBT people and their supporters come out and openly express their acceptance of LBGT persons in society. The word pride conjures instant connotations to the rainbow symbol and people in “colourful” costumes partying on floats in a parade through town. It is quite remarkable how rapidly the acceptance of LGBT persons has moved forward in society. I can only talk about…

The Self-Destructiveness of Excessive Tolerance

The Self-Destructiveness of Excessive Tolerance

Few would argue with the claim that self-described left-wingers are tolerant. They perceive tolerance as a virtue. What are they tolerant of? People with different skin colors, ethnic backgrounds, religion, sexual preference etc. They are not however known for tolerating differing political opinions. Just look at the amount of street brawling that has exploded since the leftist stranglehold on the narrative has been challenged by Trump’s candidacy and eventual presidency. At the same time intolerance is ascribed to people on…
