I was approached by the human rights group called Domestic Prisoners of Conscience. They run a number of webpages because they want to better the conditions for minors who live apart from their family in either foster care, rehab or boarding schools.
One of their operations is called 1000 places You don’t want to be as a teenager
They asked me if I wanted to help them gathering facts and because I am a father to two wonderful children I felt that I was in no position to say no. I accepted and am now co-author of the blog.
We as parents have an obligation to secure the best possible option for our children in a world where there really isn’t a positive future ahead for them. We have left them with little possibility of early retirement which is the meaning of life. Due to our accept of the work politicians and diplomats have done in the European Union and in the World Trade Organization it is hard to protect our industry from being competed off the market by firms located in the third world where safety of the employees and salaries which can feed a family don’t exist.
So I felt that we have to secure them when they are struggling with illness or so-called addiction. Double standard morale has meant that alcohol consumption which was normal when I was child at workplaces would be judged as addiction today. Our children are pushed through the education system without joy or a number of parties which would make life tolerable into unemployment for no reason.
I know that putting individual schools, boot camp and wilderness program on such a list based on Danish values may be found to be judgmental by some, but because we Danes lives in a superior culture people can chose to read it or not. I no longer care what people think. It is my opinion and I stand by my words because I know that I grew up in a better place.
I am looking forward to my new job as author at the blog.
