Olav’s tysker og Nazi vennlighet

Dagens hovedoppslag er at kronpris Olav var tyskervennlig.

Jeg er ikke overrakset overhodet. Nordmenn flest var begeistret for Hitler, Roosvelt og Mussolini. Ap og NS var veldig like. NS styringstid var en kontinuitet i norsk politisk historie.

Jeg klandrer ikke kronpris Olav for hans synspunkter om Tyskland noe mer enn jeg klandrer en gjennomsnittlig Høyre eller Ap velger for deres synspunkter.

Book review ”The social Animal” by David Brooks

About the book

The social animal is a book about the recent scientific discoveries about the operation of the human mind.  It is written as a story about a couple Harold and Erica. It’s not my favorite style to read about science but it works fine as illustrations of the ideas.

How we learn, think, act and bond is documented with a wealth of references. One nice thing about the social Animal is that it put on display how marvelous creatures we are.

Just to give you a taste for the book I’ll give a few examples of interesting sections:

Emotions are used to measure the value of something. Without emotions we are unable to make choices. This was documented by research on people with specific brain damages. “He was incapable of assigning value to different options. “His decision-making landscape was hopelessly flat”

 The feeling of pleasure is caused by the removal of some tension like when we grasp some situation or master a task. The surge of happiness is not caused by living in harmony but by erasing the tension. One very important implication of this is that you have to be the creator of your own happiness.

Another point made is that self control (or character)  triumphs IQ as determinant of success in life. People with self control and self-discipline develop habits and strategies that trigger the unconscious processes that enable them to perceive the world in productive and farseeing ways.”

Another good point is the need for heroes as role models.

“Highly ambitious people often have met someone like themselves who achieved great success”

 Economic considerations

The economic implications are discussed and concepts as emergent systems are explained. This is a well know concept in Austrian economics.  Independent actions by individuals result in structures which is more complicated and intricate than the individuals are aware of. An example is individual settlers over time creating an advanced city.

Another example is knowledge. People may over generations learn how to build boats which are far more advanced than the builders are aware of. Other examples are language and trade patterns.

“Out of the actions and relationships of millions of individuals, certain regularities do emerge”

Another economic point made is that humans are to complex creatures to be measured, quantified and fit into mathematical models. “Erica was taught by economists and political scientists who assumed that human beings are pretty much the same. This assumption makes social science a science”  But mental character varies to a large degree: “The tendency to collect information before making up one’s mind, the tendency to seek various points of view before coming to a conclusion, the disposition to think extensively about a problem before responding, the tendency to calibrate the degree  of strength of one’s opinions to the degree of evidence available, the tendency to think about future consequences before taking action, the tendency to explicitly weight pluses and minuses of a situation before making a decision and the tendency to seek nuance and avoid absolutism”

David Brooks is not an economist, but I must comment that these points are in line with the  Austrian view on economics:

The concept of “perfect competition” entails among others perfect information. But we certainly has widely different information.

Austrian economist Murray Rothbart states “it is never any possibility of measuring increases or decreases in happiness or satisfaction. This makes any scientific handling of «externalities» impossible.
 

Similarly elasticity curves are useful to understand the usual direction of economic processes. If the price rice people will typically buy more and the demand for some products are more sensitive to price changes than others. But each curve is really unique to the situation (persons, time, place, product etc.)

Morality and Politics

I’ll conclude this review with what I did not like about the book and that was the author’s moral and political conclusions of the presented material.

Here is a statement showing his view on morality: Many scientist believe that the ability to unconsciously share another’s pain is a building block of empathy and through that emotion morality”

 Brooks presents a camera metaphor for morality. A camera has automatic and manual settings. The automatic settings are fast and efficient but not very flexible. So sometimes you override the automatic settings by switching to manual. In the same way the mind has automatic moral concerns. But in crucial moments, they can be overridden by the slower process of conscious reflection.

 What is presumed here is that the well being of this other person has moral value whereas my well being has not. But upon reflection;  If life has moral value why has all human beings moral value except me? The only logical conclusion is that my actions promoting my life has moral value too.

In a way he is a victim of the consequences of the structure of his own mind and the culture he grew up in. As ha states:

“We’re born into cultures, nations and languages that we didn’t choose. We’re born with certain brain chemicals and genetic predispositions that we can’t control. We’re sometimes thrust into social conditions that we detest. But among all the things we don’t control, we do have some control over our stories. We do have a conscious say in selecting the narratives we will use to organize perceptions.

At another place he states:

Learning consists of taking things that are strange and unnatural and absorbing them so steadily they become automatic. Automaticity is achieved through repetition. The idea that your life has no moral value has sneaked into the authors mind through repetition in his culture.

He makes another error concerning politics. Here is another statement:

If you ask Americans to describe their values, they will give you the most individualistic answers of any nation on the planet. Yet if you actually watch how Americans behave, you see they trust one another instinctively and form groups with alacrity.

 WOW!! Much of the books is about how individuals bonds and relates. In the face of all this how can the author be surprised that securing each man’s right to life, property and the pursuit of happiness should prevent people to form groups? I seems like some perverted vision of individualism has somehow sneaked into Brooks mind. Something like a false alternative between the government organizing the bonding or everybody will just stay alone.

Another place he states “One of the most enduring lessons of social psychology is that behavior change often precedes changes in attitude and feelings. “ If your body impersonates an attitude long enough then the mind begins to adopt it” Well then in an individualistic society where the life and property of each man is consistently protected and all infringements are checked then maybe people finally ends up respecting and trusting each other?

How can Brooks get so lost when it comes to morality and politics? Again the answer is found in the book: “We spend much of the first halves of our lives trying to build internal models that fit the world and much of the last halves trying to adjust the world so it fits the inner models.”

 I recommend reading this books for all the interesting facts. But be careful with adopting the authors conclusions. Better use you conscious mind to evaluate the facts and integrate them with your own mental structures.

Why did he attac?

The attacker had the particular cause of a monocultural Norway. This is a view that is being silenced by the «political correct» media. He also thinks that the Cultural Marxists» are destroying the good Norwegian values. That’s why he attaced the government buildings and the youth camp of the labor union party.

 

I think he did this as a martyr to attract attention to his cause and get as much media as possible, I think he let himself be caught alive to continue his struggle. In essence I think the action was a media jippo.

I don’t support his cause. I want foreigners to come, stay and work in Norway without any restrictions. I dont’t support his violence. I believe in non-violent means to undermine a suppressive government.

But I understand his frustration of the Norwegian media. I don’t think this would have happened if the media was not controlled by the marxists.

The ideology of the attacer

I skimmed through the writins of the attacer on document.no and below is what I found most interesting:

He defines himself as a «culture conservative». Then he sees the «culture marxists», the capitalist globalists» (that’s me) the muslim’s and the big grey mass of I don’t care what happens.

He also adhere’s to the «Vienna school of thought».

The socialist’s points to the extreme right. In their world classical liberalism is «extreme right» so I fear classical liberalism will be blamed also.

=========================================

Alle grupper med en politisk agenda konspirerer direkte eller indirekte. Om de vil innrømme dette eller ikke er irrelevant.

 

Document, som alle andre politiske ledede entiteter (som klassekampen, N(A)RK, dagbladet, dagsavisen. Cluet er at alle som jobber mot et bestemt politisk mål konspirerer (oss inkludert, vi er kulturkonservative (>10%), de andre er kulturmarxister (>10%), Muslimer (støtter kulturmarxistene by default) (>5%) kapitalistglobalister (>1%) og så har vi den grå masse i midten (bestående av svært mange humanister, og andre som enten sympatiserer med marxistene eller de konservative. Dette er gruppen (80%) som vi alle forsøker å «vinne gunsten til».

============================

Uansett, fremover anser jeg konsolidering av kulturkonservative krefter på alle 7 fronter som det viktigste, i Norge og i alle Vest Europeiske land. Det er essensielt at vi jobber for at alle disse 7 frontene bruker Vienna school of thought eller i hvertfall deler av den som grunlag for 20-70 års-kampen som ligger forran oss.

Boken heter forresten 2083 og er på engelsk, 1100 sider).

For å oppsumere Vienna school of thought:

– Kulturkonservatisme (anti-multikulturalisme)

– Mot Islamisering

– Anti-rasistisk

– Anti-autoritært (motstand mot alle autoritære hat-ideologier)

– Pro-Israel/forsvarer av ikke-muslimske minoriteter i Muslimske land

– Forsvarer av de kulturelle aspektene ved kristendom

– Å avsløre Eurabia prosjektet og Frankfurt skolen (ny-marxisme/kulturmarxisme/multikulturalisme)

– Står ikke for en økonomisk politikk og kan dermed samle alt fra sosialister til kapitalister

Drugs in Oslo

I bought a copy of the magazine ( It’s a magazine sold only on the streets of Oslo by licensed sellers receiving half the price of the magazine. I believe most sellers have a drug problem i)

The editorial on drug politics baffled me in its contradictions:

First part where gratifications that the politicians were discussing less regulations of the drugs. Second part was complaints that the government did not do enough for the drug addicts.

So the first second the editor asks the government du back off drugs, the next he asks them to go all in. It make no sense one second to beg the government getting the hell out and the next second begging for help.

What happens backstage in the government is the politicians see the expenses for helping the drug addicts is increasing and then they figure out they will reduce their expenses by criminalizing drugs (these line of thoughts; reducing expenses on the helpless lied behind the eugenics programs in the 30’s )

The politicians also see adults behaving like Childs. «Help me I don’t manage». The next second the paternalistic politicians start treating the adults like Childs  criminalizing what they eat, drink, smoke and inject and were they go etc just like kindergarten.

And more: The editor is unhappy about drug regulations and he is unhappy about the governments social program. These complaints have been the same for decades. The government is doing consistently bad in on both issues he really cares about and still he argues for more government.

How about stepping back for a second and considering the option of less government?

The solutions are free production and trade of drugs and charity left to civil society.

On the personal level the solution is for adults to start being adults: Keep on doing your drugs and face the consequences as a man. If you don’t like the consequences stop doing it.

The real purpose of the euro

The European Union was founded with the ( good ) purpose to guarantee the free movement of goods, capital, services, and people. To supposedly facilitate these freedoms they created a common currency, the Euro.

But the founding governments could easily have left money in EU to the market. A common currency (like gold or silver) would prevail because people want to trade across the borders.

Why didn’t the governments leave money to the market? It’s pretty clear explained in the Treaty Article 104

==============================================================

ECONOMIC AND MONETARY POLICY

Article 104

1. Overdraft facilities or any other type of credit facility with the ECB or with the central banks of the Member States (hereinafter referred to as “national central banks”) in favour of Community institutions or bodies, central governments, regional, local or other public authorities, other bodies governed by public law, or public undertakings of Member States shall be prohibited, as shall the purchase directly from them by the ECB or national central banks of debt instruments.

2. Paragraph 1 shall not apply to publicly-owned credit institutions which, in the context of the supply of reserves by central banks, shall be given the same treatment by national central banks and the ECB as private credit institutions.

Article 104c

«Member States shall avoid EXCESSIVE government deficits.»

.===========================================================

The real purpose of ECB stands out clear. To finance the government’s deficit spending. But just not excessive (for the obvious reason that it will destroy the currency )

They treaty members knew this and prohibit it by forbidding the ECB buying government bonds ( 104.1 ) but leaving a big loophole in 104.2 enabling public and private banks ( the purpose of current banking legislation is to buy the governments deb. Banks are a only nominally private ) to buy the debt.

Now the union is on the verge on collapse because of the Euro. The four freedoms may be lost because of the conflicted resulting from monetary dictatorship.

Handbooks for the revolution

The Albert Einstein Institution (http://www.aeinstein.org/ ) is publishing blueprints for undermining dictatorships and converting them to democracies by nonviolent means. They are inspired by among others the Norwegian WW II civil resistance movement and Gandhi.

Non-violent don’t mean pacifism. It means resistance and defiance without weapons. Their suggested methods are state of the art methods from business life and the military and they suggest an organized long term well planned struggle for the liberation of a repressed country. Their methods have been used in several struggles and these experiences are embodied in the material. The material is down to earth with specific suggestions for actions.

The insight of the Albert Einstein Institution is that the government is getting its strength from the citizens. Their idea is to methodically erode “their pillars of support” and strengthen organizations outside the government.

There is much vested interested in current welfare state system ( public employees, customs, government handouts, legal privileges, corruption,  subsidies, politicians high on power, powerful bureaucrats etc. ). The majority also has a firm grip on education and a overall sympathetic media to influence people. These facts make me believe an organized struggle is necessary to convert the western dictatorships of the majority into democracies ruled by the rule of law.

It might be argued that the situation is “not that bad”. This argument goes both ways:

Life is ok so why bother change the system?

or

We still have freedom of speech and the governments don’t control the whole economy so dissidents might make a living. So the personal risk of defiance is not so high. Better act now before it is too late.

There is much more to be said about this. But the fact that there is an organized opposition will have an psychological effect for the government who pretend to work for the common good. This illusion only work until someone stands up and say: No you dom’t.
