Were we worth saving? – Year 2055


“We were to be the first life form to wipe ourselves out. But what would be unique about us, is that we would do it knowingly. Now what does that say about us? The question I’ve been asking is, why didn’t we save ourselves when we had the chance? Is the answer, because… we weren’t sure if we were worth saving?”

Another beautiful, yet melancholic quote from the movie Age of Stupid, set in the time 2055.

Food is a human right, right?

“Of course it is!” – would be the response of many… Is it though?

To determine whether it is a right or not, we need to look at the word right on its own, aswell as the current human situation = human rights. 

Our rights are defined by something that we are morally allowed to do or to have (HAVE, not BUY), something that is legal to have, and something that cannot be taken away from us… That seems right to me. 

Now, let’s have a look at how this idea really functions today:

 Approximately 850 million people world-wide starve. To compare, that number is equivalent to the total population of Germany, the U.S.A., Russia, Brazil & Japan, or somewhere between 12 and 15% of people on Earth. 

Rights: 

Legally & morally allowed to have – cannot be taken away from us.

Free Food Movement – non profit distribution of free food!


As a very dedicated few of “my” readers might have noticed, it has been a while since I’ve written anything very, very good in here – or MADE anything helpful.

What’s been going on the last few months? I’ll tell you what!

The Free Food Movement!

I have been  thinking about & working on this huge project, intended to transform the world & how we think in a direct way.  Instead of keep trying to inspire people through lyrics, I’ve come to the conclusion that doing something practical might be a better way for me to imprint my feelings onto society, and leave a mark!

The intention of this movement is to distribute organic food FOR FREE to the people living nearby on of our stalls.
As this is ment to be a teaser, I’ll redirect you to this page for a more detailed description of the whole thing.

One thing I can tell you though, is that we need your support! We (almost) desperately need help with spreading the message through media & other means of communication, aswell as raising money through donations.

This Indiegogo site is the place for that!

I sincerely thank you for your time!
Have a very nice day (:

Let’s be mentally equal instead?


Gender equality is a huge thing these days. Women should have as much influence as men – we should all have the same job opportunities, male as female. Many women want to see men take care of the kids while they provide bread for the family. In short, modern women should be able to do whatever the modern male individual is doing.

“Equality of the genders” – they call it.

In my eyes this is not deep enough to be healthy long-term. In fact, this seems kind of superficial. Here’s why:

 Stone Age

A long time back in time, when 99% of our DNA was developed, we had gender-specific professions. The men hunted, crafted & did almost everything related to the usage of muscle and raw survival techniques. Women, having an EQUALLY important role in “society”, well they cooked, gathered, looked after the children most of the time etc. This is still how our subconscious sees the world.

This instinct that lies so deep in us has NOT changed. However, our free will has – quite a bit. The way we think of these roles. Instinct has nothing really to do with thinking. So today, what we get, is people arguing: “hey, do the men think they are stronger than women? Better? More intelligent? Let the women do the fun stuff!” – or something similar.

What many fail to consider here is the “ficial” (opposite of superficial? Haha) equality.

I mean, way back in time, people knew the importance of each single individual’s role in society. The men needed to be able to just sit back and relax when they came home from long hunting travels and whatnot. The men highly appreciated everything their women did for them. Women were simply the core of her mans’ capability out in the world, so to say. Anyhow, this is more my assumption than it is actual evidence. It is hard to find this evidence from that long ago, haha (:

But the same principles still apply today.

Why have physical equality, appreciating just what we can see without thinking.

Let’s have MENTAL equality. Let’s support the other gender in whatever profession he or she has occupied. For our own sake, let us just BE equal instead of the pretentious tendencies we have evolved today.

Love everybody.

What is a “long walk”?


I happen to be quite experienced in asking people where this or that is, and how far away it may be.

This is not a very big deal, but still I find it pretty interesting.

I’ve found that people who walk less are more likely to exaggerate in distances. People who, on the other extreme walk for many hours a day, tend to know more precisely how far away the nearest, be it bus station or beach, is. I honestly expected trained walkers to highly underestimate and say things like “ah, it’s nothing” – but generally they don’t. In other words; they have experience.

Could this be converted into other, deeper aspects of life and society? In other words; should we let those with valid experience do the talking and the rest of us keep to the listening?

I’ve been in quite a lot of situations where this question would have fit in perfectly. Have you?

 

Have a very nice day. (:
