When can a society be too competitive?

In culture on November 27, 2012 at 22:29

This is my second part on adoption. Yesterday I wrote about a documentary I watched on Television. Today I will inform you why you may find Danish firms very competitive and wonder why we are not so affected by the global economically crisis as your country is.

For Denmark to be the most effective country in the world the tools is quite simple. If you are a social worker and you spot a pregnancy your computer and your statistic will predict to result in a negative balance when the life is over, your job is to convince the so-to-be mother that the abortion is the only answer.

It is very easy to apply maximal pressure on the often young inexperienced mother because in Denmark children are not being put in foster by starting a trial. No in Denmark it is a number of managers together with a judge and a politician who decide which children who will be taken from their birth families. Of course such a decision can be appealed but not to a court before it has passed a second committee also consisting of people in the business.

Only when they have decided the faith of your child after some 6-12 months you can take the system to trial. At that point most parents are broken emotionally.

I believe that the caseworkers have a point when they predict that the soon-to-be child will inherit a negative social heritage. In Denmark you are able to do little with your social status during your life. The top of the businesses in Denmark are related. The parliament in Denmark consists of a number of members belonging to families who have been represented in our parliament for generations. In Denmark you cannot escape your past. If you are an immigrant you will always be an immigrant. If you are poor, you will remain poor. If you are rich, you will remain rich.

Children who have been in the system are registered on national wide computer networks and when they start up their family the system are there ready to offer their services, which often is forcing the child into a foster care system where foster parents are hired because they become Facebook friends with the manager of the department of social services. In Denmark we have a law. It demands mandatory participation of 2 days of education for all foster parents. Only 1 out of 4 foster parents take the time. The rest just cash in.

Why the system accepts this I don’t get.

I believe that putting pressure on young mothers to murder their child is wrong. Life is not a granted thing. I understand that Denmark as a society needs to be competitive. But is the solution to murder unborn children based on the possibility of them getting a low income?

Why not put these children up for open adoptions instead of importing children from Africa who frankly would be better of living in a culture which understand them and their special needs.

I am very sad about what Denmark has become.


Adoption bizarre – a small story of money and adoption

In culture on November 26, 2012 at 22:26

I am a Dane. I do believe in God. I believe that a life starts when you can monitor a heartbeat. However sometimes nature cancels the creation of live in the first trimester and that is why accept abortion before the first 12 weeks are gone when the fetus is ill or the life of the mother is at stake.

I also believe that there are cases where the mother accepts that she is not the right parent for the child she has granted life. That is why I support adoption. Two different headlines broadcasted in the Danish media have challenged my faith.

The first of the two headlines were that Danish adoption agencies are pushing parents down in Africa to adopt their children on false facts. They also broadcasted a documentary showing a Danish family adopting two children. The parents had HIV and they were lied to so they believed that they would be dead within months. They were promised that they would get progress reports and photos of the children from their life in Denmark. They were lied to. They got no reports despite the fact that the Danish adoptive parents wrote the reports they were required to.

But the story didn’t there. The Danish parents experienced difficulties with the oldest child. It was very obvious that they were not prepared for what is called reactive attachment disorder. The oldest child was 3 years old. A child at that age you have to give time and space. You cannot expect it to be your child fully and 100 percent. The parents were offered part time foster care where the child took a weekend off from the new family. The mother seemed to be jealous of the things the child was given during her time in the foster family. She was insecure regarding her role as an adoptive mother and I have to say knowing something about the business I was not impressed with the psychological approach she was advised to use.

The documentary ended with the girl being placed at some group home in Denmark. Group homes in Denmark is not for children, the employees often lack education, there is violence and even if an employee forced a girl to oral sex and he is convicted the punishment is only 60 days suspended as it was the case in a recent episode on an island near in the northern part of Jutland. The birth parents continued to morn the children they lost contact to and due to new medication they were still alive, were working and had even adopted a child themselves.

The present adoption system is sick and should be stopped. It is not that I am against adoptions. I believe that there would be children in Denmark who would benefit from an open adoption given that the social services would aid the families in this matter.

This is by the way a two part blog. Tomorrow I will write about a nation which is so competitive that it would allow murder. If you are guessing that the country I will write about is Denmark you guess right, but I will not spoil your expectations so you just have to wait until tomorrow.

May the end of the Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)

In Uncategorized on November 19, 2012 at 14:09

Maybe this week will be the end of Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). For many years the business has not been good and the present plan to save cost will introduce hunger and poverty for Danish workers.

I believe that it is time to dissolve this company. They might accept the harsh terms in Sweden and Norway but Danish workers who have the burden to finance lazy students from Sweden and Norway who study free of charge in Denmark have more cost feeding their children. So of course the salaries for Danish workers should be higher than the paychecks they get in the other countries.

That is also why the Danish Trade Unions are the only who have not closed a deal with the management of Scandinavian Airlines. I guess that the representatives of the Danish Trade Union would prefer welfare for their members rather than salaries at a lower level. I support the idea of letting this company go if the Danish workers are not left alone on their previous terms.

I have to say that I as Danish who have lost the opportunity to get my early retirement miss to see real suffering and real hunger abroad. We are the population in the world who has suffered at most during this globally crisis. I am kind of ashamed that the Norwegian and Swedish workers cannot see that they have been freeloaders all the time.

Apple and their censorship of Danish novels

In culture on November 9, 2012 at 19:24

I have learned that Apple has removed the novels of Peter Øvig Knudsen from both Apple’s ibookstore and Apple’s App store and I have learned that the reason is the novel are too Danish. Danish and American culture is not very like but I believed wrongly that the Apple was a global brand aimed at all consumers in the world.

I know realize that it is not the case. I have mailed our manager for Mobil phones in our company to urge him to switch our Mobil phone purchase strategy from Apple to Android mobile phones. We work in a Danish firm and whenever a foreign firm attacks parts of our culture we will not deal with them.

I accept that they produce products offering a lot of options and in some areas they are properly leading in the world, but we Danes have our history and our values. We have previous battled the entire middle east in the cartoon war and we won, so why shouldn’t we be successful winning a battle with Apple.

The case is right now a subject being discussed in our parliament and I guess that the decision made by Apple will influence the investment strategy in the administration.

I hope that Apple would apologies but it is their decision. I will teach Danes that Apple needs to be avoided until they surrender.
