Will history repeat itself ?

Around 1650 Horsens was not a pleasant place to be. Wars and taxation (almost as hard as today) meant that a lot of the citizens of Horsens simply had ran off. The entire city was marked with penury and people starved in general.

Sometime people who passed the city wondered if the city would be deserted in the end.

Then of course better times arrived. The railway came to the city. Clothing industry was founded and goods were made and sailed to Copenhagen for sale.

Now we again face industry moving out to third world countries and a couple of months ago we started to hear that they no longer wanted our old clothes as aid even when they in Africa were supposed to face hunger and war. Are we lied to? Do they face torment like we do at all when they don’t want our clothes to spare?

We can see that the jobs in Denmark are going to people born by rich people who can buy their children access to housing in Copenhagen where most of the higher education are placed. People without money are educated as nurses in retirement homes or simply hired out by cases workers to various businesses without getting real paychecks. They call it job-training or activity projects but in reality it is the poor houses modelled so they fit the needs for the businesses in the year 2017.

Are there a future for people in Horsens? I am not sure. I have asked my children to look elsewhere for their future. Of course we don’t have the money for an education in Copenhagen where the housing market is impossible for students and other poor people but if they can do a little improvement for their generation in Jutland maybe their future children could have a shot at greatness.

And that is the keypoint of being a Dane right now. Plan for many generations for come. You will become what your social class at birth places your to but there is little room for improvement after all.
