I have too much respect for Sweden so I will never move there

In culture on September 8, 2018 at 06:18

I am a Dane. I prefer to live in Denmark where the beers are cheap and people drink together in order to simply start speaking to each other outside work.

Some Danes have moved to Sweden. It is their choice but I will never join them.

It is not like Malmoe is not a fine town despite the fact that so many people are killed over there that if you took the number of people living there and counted the murders you could compare it to Detroit.

I would never mind visiting Sweden but I believe that if you take up residence in another country, you should try to live like them. I would not teach my children Danish if I lived there because by choosing to live there I have also chosen that my children should be Swedish citizens.

It is exactly the same we as Danes expect from people who come to Denmark with their family. If they want to live in Denmark, be like Danes. Drink beers with us, let your children date and drink like the ordinary young Danes do in high schools.

Trish Regan is only partly right when she talks about why Danes are spending long times in schools. It is also the alcohol. In fact 6000 young Danes drank a lot of beer when the new school year started and everyone but one did well. He made the choice to fight and was arrested. Try to put 6000 people together in any country and see if they can do it better. It is not possible.

We as Danes has put our country together as we like. We pay a lot of taxes. Health care is not free as Trish Regan says. If you child suffers depression and needs residential treatment, the authorities will investigate past generations and if they also have been sick, they will bill you. As a parent you have an obligation to protect Denmarks position as one of the happiest countries in the world and you will be punished with fines if you do not do your duty.

Sweden are allowed to put their country together in another way. I respect them if they choose to invite everyone in and pay for their stay. I will still not join the traffic towards free meals and a life in laziness. I have good things going on for me here in Denmark.

Now they have an election in Sweden and some over there says that you will do better getting a job if you speak Swedish. I agree based on my experiences here in Denmark. Of course some can say that most of the people on the botton on the shops floor in Copenhagen are people from Sweden who came here working for minimum wages. Too some extend it is true but believe me. If they want to do better and make a career, they will go for other languages.

I am too old for a new language, so I will stay here in Denmark.

What happened in Sweden yesterday – a sad necessary update

In politics on April 8, 2017 at 06:01

The capital of Sweden – Stockholm – was hit by a tragedy yesterday. So far 4 people lost their lives – my thoughts goes to their relatives who now miss a loved one. A dog was also reported to have lost its life.

When I wrote about Sweden the last time it was more about ordinary daily life in Sweden. The killings in Malmoe continued. It is a situation which cannot be solved because it is the tale about modern life where people with ordinary income and ordinary skills are no longer needed in a modern digitized world with global competition and open borders inside the European Union.

It will lead to more crime. It will lead to more radicalized politics.

But this is on another level. This is terror. This is about trying to tell people that they cannot walk safely in our streets and shops.

Of course leaving your home is always a gamble. Several hundred people die in traffic every year. People medicate themselves to death trying to stay employed in a modern stressful work-environment. So the message the criminals are trying to make us believe is wrong. They cannot bully us into isolation in our homes because we have already made the decision to be part of life. Everytime we speed our bikes and cars to the fully creating dangerous situations we say no to terror. Everytime we continue to work until the level where we see the bright light and hear the voices of deceased relatives, we say no to terror.

Today it is Saturday but Monday morning I will leave my home and go to work as usual. I will defy their threats and make the roads about Horsens unsafe. I will find tasks to do at work so I will work overtime. The terrorists shall not win this battle.

I don’t know who is behind this attack and I believe that the full extent of the truth will be hidden as they always try in Sweden.

When Oluf Palme was shot the police was stopped, when they discovered that the murder might have been the result of anger towards the export of weapons to countries in the Middle East and Asia. A fall guy was selected and convicted only to be aquitted by an appeal court.

When Anna Lindh was murdered they tried it again and arrested a fall guy because the real killers motive didn’t fit the offical agenda. But too many security cameras prevented that they could go through with that and the killer was sentenced to prison.

I hope that they are not afraid to go after the real killer this time.

But most important, we owe all those who have paid the highest price that we allow ourselves not to be afraid and go out and work and live to our fullest.

What happened in Sweden yesterday?

In politics on February 20, 2017 at 08:29

When I visited Copenhagen the last time for at meeting within the firma I work for, I seriously considered taking a day of and visiting Malmoe just over in Sweden. A train ride taking only 30 minutes could take me to another country.

But my co-worker warned me of going there. What I didn’t know was that Malmoe is the murder capital of the Nordic countries. Over 50 murders took place in Malmoe in just one year. In Denmark about 50-80 people are murdered countrywide. So how can just one city in Sweden become so dangerous?

Because it is lying just next to the border to Denmark!

Before Sweden introduced such a strict border control that you think back at crossing into East Berlin back in the days of the cold war, Sweden was open for immigration. A lot of people skipped Denmark trying to leave Africa for a better life because in Denmark the police are ready to pull your gold tooth out if orders were given by the government.

Then of course. For many years the authorities have bought up houses in the deserted parts of Denmark called “The Rotten Banana” only to tear them down. So when the immigration crisis happened there were no houses left in Denmark and immigrants had to be housed in tents.

Immigrants are not stupid. They left Africa looking for new housing, social benefits and of course jobs if their only basic education would allow them to land a job as dishwasher. So a tent would be a bad start, compared to Sweden’s promise of house due to the vast areas where people deserted Sweden and left for the United States 100 years ago. States like Wisconsin and Minnesota for a large part consist of people with origins from Sweden.

However, Sweden is a large and cold country so many became stuck in Malmoe and here they found old enemies from back home. They started to fight as they did home. People began to die and poorly google translated as people in the White House do, people began to believe that it must have been terrorism because Sweden is known to be a peaceful country.

So President Trump was right when he said that something happened in Sweden just yesterday. A Swedish policeman has made statistic public that crimes in Sweden just like crimes in Denmark for a large part is committed by people with foreign origins. It might be 1 generation back; it might be 10 generations back but the trend is clear. Crime is on the rise so Sweden is no longer a peaceful country and a textbook example of what will happen if you don’t have a border control.

Sweden has learned its lesson. Prepare yourself for the sound of latex gloves if you choose to go there.

I don’t.

Denmark welcomes guests

In culture on March 28, 2016 at 10:38

Negative media coverage on Denmark’s approach handling guests has made me sad.

Because Denmark is not a closed country. Everyone are welcome to come here and drink a beer or a glass of wine with us. It is wrong to label Denmark as hostile against immigrants. All we ask from our guest is a little respect for our rules. Something like respecting our women regardless of their outfit and be grateful if our firms allow our guests to serve in them.

And I provide how hospitable we as Danes are. Elsinore was basically flattened by a massive invasion of people from Sweden. The reason was that Denmark during the Easter produce special beers which are stronger than normal beers. For people coming from a country where they drink skin milk when they want something strong, beers of this type cause people to become drunk and violent. About 500 people from Sweden come to Elsinore on one single day and the result was that the city was left in a condition you don’t find worse on this side of Syria.

And here is the point. Regardless of the fact that half of the Swedish people representing the finest Sweden can produce ended up being need to be carried to the ferry and several police men had to maze several of the immigrants, the mayor of Elsingore approached the news today and told everyone that they are welcome to come and buy our beers another time.

Regardless of the fights and the trail of vomit down to the ferry, they respected our culture and drank beers with us.

That is the type of guests which are always welcome – even if they will come and work here competing with native Danes for the job. Because when you try to act like us, live like us you earn our respect and that is the key issue – earning our respect.

We don’t care how skilled guests are. They can have all the master and doctor degrees in the world. If they cannot “hygge” (socializing), they will never earn our respect.

First day with border control – no problems

In politics on January 5, 2016 at 20:08

Of course some people had to use 3 hours extra going from-and-to work but we are living in a time with extraordinary challenges. We all have to pay a price for the migration crisis. My children will find difficulties establishing their own home when all the flats are given to refugees and migrants. They just have to remain living at my place until they are 30 something.

So I don’t find the complaints from the workers who cross the border between Denmark and Sweden seriously. They also have to provide with something when we and not least the next generation will face a difficult times.

We are all looking at England. Will they leave the European Union or will they step up and open their borders to migrants and refugees from the entire world? If they leave, the European Union will be a thing of the past.

Back to the Danish – Swedish relationship and all the daily commuters. If they find it too difficult to cross the borders the solution is simple: Find a new job which doesn’t include crossing the border! It is that simple. Start searching now!

There are plenty of Danes who is ready to take the vacant positions.

For the next 6 months people will learn to adjust to a hopefully permanent situation. We just have to wait and see if the wars in the Middle East will end before that.
