Does it matter to fight? – you cannot make it anyway

In culture on November 15, 2017 at 18:31

In Denmark you have to look at your parents when you decide the line of work you will aim for when you become adult.

Social heritage matters. It not only matters – it is everything. The title of king of Denmark is not the only title which is given based on who the parents are.

I have been thinking about whether young people are lied to. Is the reason for the gang war that they not from their early childhood has been told that their destiny in life is to work as a care taker for the old and ill or if they do it really good, to work in a supermarket.

In many areas children who start in school at an age between 5 and 7 cannot be the state version of Danish. That the Danish dialect they speak on Television. Then they are behind in school from day one. When school is over after 9 year then they do not have the grades to enter high school or the money for cell phone and laptop which is mandatory if you want to enter.

If the children grow up believing that they can get whatever job they want as long as they just study hard, then they get frustrated when they discover the truth. Then the gangs will receive them with open arms. New recruits are always welcome.

But there is also a geografical difference.

November 11th this year the state made an investigation public that showed that there is a huge difference in the quality of schooling the students get in different parts of Denmark. In the city of Vordingborg the students graduate a full grade lower compared to the city of Kolding. Vordingborg is a forgotten city people no longer pass through when they drive to Germany after the high way was led over a new bridge. Kolding is in the middle of the triangle in Jutland where all the trucks go to so goods are distribuated to the entire Denmark.

So where the money flows and people come, schooling is better.

Can something be done?

Yes. Let us be realistic with children. Lets tell them how to watch out for customs, people and ideas from the outside. Let us focus on the things near us and the easy jobs to take. Let us travel less with the children and turn the back to the world so we once again can be together in our small communities all over Denmark where we know our neighbors at least 3 generations back. Stop violence. Start silence and shunning towards people we do not know.

Ceasefire in Copenhagen ?

In justice, politics on November 13, 2017 at 05:47

The Danish newspapers and television programs have informed us that the staff at the two major gangs (Brothas and Loyal to Familia) have made an agreement about 1 months ceasefire, leaving the room for negociation more permanent peace.

It is happy news for the citizens of the central Copenhagen which has been the battleground for the ongoing gang war.

Now they can leave their homes for shopping, their children can play safely in the streets.

The Danish politicians were caught dumbfooled not realizing that they are no longer in charge in these areas. While the local population had no election for self-govermance like Catalonia in Spain, the reality is that they were not invited to the mousque where the negociations took place.

They are sitting in our parliament and in the cityhall totally out of touch with events taking place less that 10 kilometers from their job.

Is Denmark consisting of parallel communities where we have politicians we elect every forth year eating and talking nonsens out of touch with ordinary people?

Yes. That is the reality.

Now they make cuts on public transport making it difficult to come to the cities if you are a comuter without access to cars. Large parts of Denmarks no longer offer real jobs. They used to have jobs but the jobs have been moved to the Eastern part of Europe where countries have been better to fence their countries off against the immigrantion allowing them to operate with lower costs and the firms than move there because they can pay less to the workers, when the workers do not pay as much in taxes.

There are poor Danes living outside the citities who have to go by train or bus to the major cities for jobs. They live another life compared to people in the citities. They are a kind of parallel community also. A TV-documentary about people in the city of Nakskov should be sold abroad to inform foreigner how Denmark also is.

Then there are people in parts of the major cities who only can see the gangs as their line of work because they never in a million years will be able to get a good education just because their parents are poor.

All these grous our politicians choose not to know anything about.It is their choice. I will more in blog entries to come.

I know it. I should not rant in a blog entry with good news.

Let us celebrate the peace in our times.

Practice makes perfect – sadly

In culture on November 11, 2017 at 07:30

Drive-by shootings are not as easy as in Grand Theft Auto 3. When you are on a motorcycle you have to calculate your own speed and the speed of your target as well.

The gang war in Denmark has been ongoing for almost a year and now after months of practice, they are starting to kill people.

3 young men have lost their lives as result of the ongoing gang war the last two weeks.

Often it is young men who is not in the center of the gang war but doing what they see as their duty to protect their block watching out for strangers and a single police car representing the central government in Copenhagen trying to make it look like these parts of Copenhagen still are controlled by them instead of the gangs.

The ordinary people know the truth. They know where they can get protection – by the gangs. All the police can do in order to prevent the total collapse of the Danish society is to station all hands along the border trying to keep immigrants out making it look like an episode of “The walking death” where tons of zombies pound endlessly against our border fences.

I am sad. I feel with those who are left behinds. I cannot imagine the tragedy of losing a child.

I am also lucky because I live in Jutland far away from the cities. The gang war for us is just like it happens in another country. The central government in Copenhagen does not know how we live. They do not know our worries about retirement. Denmark should look at France where people retire when they are 59 years old on average. That is the model we should aim at as we ordinary Danes admire it. My children are raised to think about retirement when they have lived out their potential which you typical will have to evaluate if you have done at age 30 to 35. From that day it is about counting down to retirement.

I feel that the gap between we as a group of ordinary citizens and the political elite never has been larger. Maybe it is also the reason for the gang war. In June, when the new students graduate they have to be careful to show their joy over this academic victory. At many places they have been egged or otherwise assaulted because they meet people in the streets who have parents which could not afford the schooling.

Schooling in Denmark is not free. Most high schools demand ownership of a laptop and that is a stop for many families, because Laptops are too expensive. The operating system are forced into upgrades too soon. I had many laptops during my time I had to give up because the Windows or MAC OS were too old, not because the hardware failed.

And the schools are totally hooked on websites where you are limited choosing OS, so the race for better hardware is always on.

20 percent of the familes give up and their children leave the education system with only 9 years of schooling. It was not a problem until the government decide that they would subside the employers if they took in immigrants. The employers are not stupid. They kicked out a lot of people with no or little education and took in immigrants because they could get money from the state. Sometime the old employees are invited back to their old job but now on another lower salary because the state also pay for activating people who have been unemployed for too long.

Does it wonder that so many are bitter?

Can it be reason for the gang war?

Denmark – a country failing the next generation

In culture on October 17, 2017 at 19:40

For some time the Danish government has asked the education sector to increase efficiency cutting 2 percent of their costs every year.

As result fewer Danes can afford education because lowering the number of students because all schools and universities has to make cuts means that the grades go up and more young Danes do not make the cut.

Then they have to aim to become social and health care assistant (SOSO assistant or SOSU hjælper) which in Denmark are considered the trashcan education you can get if you have failed other aspects in life. In the old days people doing this line of job could work in from the streets and do it without education but then they introduced the education so they could lower cost because part of the education is done as trainees to a lower pay saving the public sector a lot of money.

For reasons unknown is a requirement to allow foreign students from other countries inside Europe access to cheap student loans but it is illegal to force them to pay the loan back very unlike young Danish students who no longer loan money because the repayment period has been shortened so much so they are unable to pay it back in time putting them into risk of piling up huge lawyers bills and court attendances.

More than 16,500,000 Euros cannot be reclaimed from foreign students forcing the government to make general cuts in the entire student grant/loan education.

The second problem is housing. Denmark has taken in huge amounts of immigrants. Now students have to be housed in remote deserted retirement homes where they have little chance of using public transport to school.

In one example we got recently, the authorities in Egedal near Copenhagen has demanded that a straight-A student who even are especially selected to participate in the nationwide Academy for Talented youth (only 5 students per school are granted that) should move from a location near the town of Holbaek to a former retirement home called Porsebakken. It requires the use of 2 buses and 1 train trip or more than 2 hours of transport each way go to school not to mention that student job and the academy will be impossible.

One talent wasted I am sure but this case is far from alone. All over the country students experience this. Especially if they have been ward of the state if illness or death has hit their parents. Mostly you see them as homeless people within 5 years of reaching adulthood alternatively they end up in prison.

Denmark is losing the next generation. They will be less educated compared to their parents. Will Denmark be able to attrach investors when this happen? It is an area of great concern.


Will Denmark be able to target the tourist industry in Romania?

In politics on October 15, 2017 at 19:39

Denmark has a huge problem with Romania. A huge group of citizen from Romania has travelled to Denmark where they beg and commit crimes (assault, threats and theft). When the police arrest them and the court as a part of their sentence try to expell them, they cannot be sent to Romania because the prisons in Romania is not of the standard as prisons in Denmark.

Their cells are too small and various human rights conventions forbids Denmark to expell people to countries there they basically torture people and still use show trials.

Denmark knows how the conditions are in Romania because the Danish businessman Kent Kristensen was convicted in a show trial being unaware about the entire process in Denmark. When he was lured to Spain he was transferred to Romania and served 4 years before it became apparent that the is was a case of misjustice. Now he who used to pay thousands of tax dollars when he ran his business is living on welfare because his health was destroyed in their prisons.

Danish tax-payers can understand that the conditions have not improved since the days of Nicolae Ceaușescu. He was executed – also after a show trial by people who wanted to be viewed as democratic but in reality it was people from inside the system who used riots in the streets to establish a new regimn. Officially it is a democracy but the royal family has not been called back to rule and the European Union has chosen to close their eyes because the country brings cheap labor into the system so the governments in other countries can use the low salaries in Romania as pressure against the trade unions in their own countries.

Latest France seems to have called for reforms so the workers in France can move toward lower salaries as they have them in Romania.

So Denmark are stuck with housing criminals. While other countries suffer from camps created by immigrants, Denmark see that public parks suddenly are transformed into tent cities and without proper access to toilets, playing grounds are often used as toilets forcing families in residential areas from allowing their children to play in their neighborhood.

Denmark needs to do something. I have learned that people are trying to identify the firms who outsource part of their work to Romania. But we also need to stop people from taking their holiday abroad in Romania.

Romania is trying to copy Sunny Beach which has proven to be a kind of defacto standard for all other countries in the eastern part of Europe showing how to sucessfully establish how tourist industry can be built from scratch. They hit the right target group by chance and everybody want to grap their part of the cake bringing good money to their countries.

Perhaps this is how Denmark can put pressure on Romania, so their police will start harassing the people who target Denmark preventing them from going to Denmark from the very start.

4 procent of the entire prison population in Denmark is from Romania, so something has to be done soon.
