After many weeks the TV-series covering the Second War of Schleswig is finished. There have been a lot of criticism and how do you make a program about the very war which shaped the modern Denmark with a lasting impact which exist deep inside every Dane even today?
You cannot tell this story in a neutral way:
The mistrust in every foreigner.
The picture inside of us tormented Danes due to expenses put upon us by the rest of Europe we see every time we close our eyes.
The idea that being a Dane is something you earn the right to call you over general generations.
All this comes from this war. The very minute we realized that the rest of Europe stood together to cheat us of old Danish land the modern Denmark was born.
Today we know that we are very much put under pressure from the European Union where the so-called European Elite government the European countries like the politicians are the only citizens in all the countries. They don’t care about us. They just want our money so they can finance whatever project they need to build as a monument over their time as politicians.
We know that a lot of countries are not taking their responsibility serious regarding refugees. Greece and Italy are among the countries which neglect their duties guarding their borders because they know that the refugees end up in our country if they don’t do anything.
In 1865 we learned that we could defend our borders with weapons but we also learned that we could defend our Danish identities by mentally blocking foreigners just by ignoring them all day long. If they come here to work, they are welcome to do so – in silence. If they want to communicate they can send an email which we then can reply – when our workload allows it.
1864 is the most important war in our history. I don’t know what would have happen if we had won, but it was a setup so it was never an option.
I am thankful that they broadcasted the TV-series and made us remember why we see us self as Danes.
