LOL!

When i grew up i was made to beleive the world was good. I was told humans are ”good”. In school teachers said things like ”everybody is equal and worth just the same” and ”everybody should be treated as such”. That’s what i was taught, that’s what i beleive most children who grow up in the same conditions as me are made to believe. By ”the same conditions as me” i mean in a place where you see no violence, where you never experience oppression (in my case it was a small swedish town, peaceful as it appeared to my young eyes). There they taught me to beleive in my ”conscience”- to listen to it and avoid making myself get ”bad conscience”- ie. ”feel bad” by not doing actions who created such feelings. Don’t hit you’re friend because you’ll feel bad about it. Listen to your ”inner good”…

Then i grew up more.

And i learned about the evil.

First i learned about poverty.

And i learned about war.

Poverty = indirect evil actions of the ”evil” humans towards the poor humans. War = direct evil. Look your victim in the eyes and shoot. Pure, direct evil.

Then i learned some psychology.

Of course, Lone! It is as we always told you- people ARE good from nature! People who do evil things are not evil, they’re just acting as they’d have to after the experiences they’ve been through!

Good experiences makes good people.

Bad experiences makes ”bad” people, and it’s not their fault!

That’s the theory i generally rely to (we can fix them again with some loving). But…

If bad experiences breed ”evil” actions… What breeds bad experiences? Of course. Other bad experiences. The mass murderer, or the oppressing dictator, was violated, beaten and raped by her parents, that’s why she’s being an idiot. Why where the parents idiots? Of course, their upbringing was imbued by bad experiences- their fellows brought them bad experiences. And so on. But hey… where did this start?

Why did we start, if we’re all so good?

Was there one evil person who was just made ”wrongly” and without that inner, natural good (a mistake by nature or evolution or god or whatever you might beleive in), who started spreading all these bad experiences?

They must have STARTED somehwere!

The bad experiences which make us evil, are they always man made? An answer to my question could be that these bad experiences could be accidental, caused by nature. She fell into a cave and got stuck for 30 years and it was no persons’ fault and now she’s evil, too bad. He was on a ship that drowned and he survived, had a trauma and now he’s doing evil things, what a shame.

Would you hit your child because you’d experienced a trauma caused by, let’s say an earthquake? I’m not so sure!

Is there a risk you’d do evil things if a rebel soldier made your brother rape your mother and then killed them slowly and made you watch it all?

Yes, i beleive there is a chance you might have gotten slightly mindfucked by that- turning in to a mad person who might do evil things.

So… what i wonder is- is it all bullshit? That stuff they taught me as a kid- that all humans are good, naturally and just by being human? And – if what they say isn’t true – then why did we start beleiving that all humans are naturally good? (bi-question: why do we have to teach them to be good to each other then?)

From what i hear about the past, say the middle ages and the roman times for example, people where pretty evil. People where generally evil, it seems. A whole audience, a whole city, cheering on as a poor human (stackars sate) get’s eaten by a lion in the colosseum. Everyone cheering. Enjoying themselves. Or, i bet there where a few so called enthusiasts (”eldsjälar”) who protested and complained about the cruelty.

Hey! I recognise that! A whole world being ”evil” except a few… minority ”good”, majority ”evil”… Oh i know where from, it’s our world today!

Yes. Call me a pessimist or a realist, but as i’ve grown up i’ve learned about all the evils in the world, and new ones keep appearing on a regular basis, and i think i’ve come to think of the world as majorly evil (or, let’s say i have for now), or, not evil but, you know what i mean… Hopeless! Or something like that.

I think it whould be pretty obvious for everyone who knows things about the world but here’s some examples of explanations to why i’ve come to beleive that:

The climate is destroyed. We have to do something about it NOW or yesterday but we don’t because it’s cheaper to catch a flight than a train sometimes and we do need the time, (oh don’t we darling? Yes sweetheart of course we do! You just catch that flight, you deserve it after working for so many hours!).

What do we need it for? Oh, we need it to work (more than is healthy so we, in the end, get exhausted and need a psychologist, a proffession invented by us so we can pay to make ourselves ”happy” (a fraction of them wants to work with what are they called.. doctors without borders! and talk to people who have so called ”real” problems… but i don’t understand why?)) so we can produce things we didn’t know we needed and actually make us greedy and lonely, and while producing it we kill the environment even more and use loads of people who we barely pay after a 12 hours work day and we exploit their country, make it ugly with factories and cut down the rain forest, and why not put some parts of animals in the products too, it makes it so colourful and shiny and we beleive that makes us happy (let’s eather make it cheap, so we can buy a lot and save some of our precious money, or expencive so we can show people we’re rich). And we kill you because you’re a jew, then we kill you because you’re a palestinian, then we kill you because you’re in the way when we need more money to run this country or this company, then we pay a politician to keep it a secret, then we steal some women and children and make them have sex with us in another country far from their home, then we become the richest country in the world the same year as we have the most suicides in the world*, then we become rasist and kick you out because your culture doesn’t fit with ours, because here we don’t steal and i saw you steal with my own eyes, and then we eat all the food in Africa because they’re fucked anyway so we might aswell eat it and throw some of it away even, then we celebrate it all by pouring out a whole bottle of very expencive champagne in the sink. Some people have come up with cute ideas to stop all this some times, take marxism for example- that we should all be together more and live like equals and they made up a whole plan to make it work. Aaawwww!!! That idea is as cute as a kitten in a basket on a post card but we all know that doesn’t work, haha, don’t we!? The communist killed each other too!

Yes, it ended very, very badly when put in a humans' (you know these greedy, power thirsty creatures) hand to control.

A world where a minority lives at the expence of the majority (and it’s been like that for as long as we remember!), and the minority isn’t even happy about it, and we teach our children that humans are good? Are born with a good will?
Everybody is equal. And everybody should be treated equal.

LOL!

Varför vill man leva i en värld där sånt här är möjligt..

Vi vet att det kommer naturkatastrofer. Varför är vi inte bättre förberedda? Vi har så många flera stridsflygplan än hjälphelikoptrar. Vi har så mycket mer ammunition än c-vitamintabletter, till de som överlevt. Jag håller med en här mannen i allt han säger

.

Varför vill man leva i en värld där jag kan gå till Carribean market och köpa en youghurt för en summa som motsvarar mer än en familj på tio personers dagsbudget för en dag?

Folk vet om det här.
Det här är inget nytt.
Det har funnits länge.
Politikerna vet om det här.


HUR KAN MAN LYSSNA OCH INGENTING HÖRA?
HUR KAN MAN TITTA OCH INGENTING SE?
HUR KAN MAN VETA OCH INGENTING GÖRA???

Det borde inte få vara sähär. Min tro på mänskligheten blir svag. Vi har glömt bort kärleken- det enklaste och bästa som finns... Det är så lätt. Men varför har vi glömt hur man älskar? Politik borde handla om kärlek och styras från hjärtat. För INGEN... INGEN som tänker med hjärtat kan göra så här mot en annan människa. Lämna dem ensamma i misär. Ta ut brödet från munnen och ge dem en känsla av hopplöshet, som Flavio skriver

Hemskt har det varit länge på Haiti. Av alla platser i hela världen, varför just där?
Hej igen, nu är jag tillbaka från min blogg-paus!

Jag håller på att skriva på en rapport om sommarskolan, som vi har drivit nu i tre veckor. När rapporten är klar lägger jag ut den här så att ni får veta vad som har försigått, en himla massa spännande som jag inte orkar berätta om nu.

För en vecka sen drog de, alla norska kompisar, och den senaste veckan har jag tagit det lugnt. En behövd paus efter en stressig sommarskola. Det enda jag har gjort är att ha en engelskalektion med Etap Jenes, de andra eleverna har ju sommarlov, och skrivit på rapporten. Och så har det vankats bröllop i huset, gratulerar till Gerda och Herve!

Nu är Julia på intåg, kommer när som helst. Hon var här som frivillig förra sommarskolan, men detta året passade inte tiden så bra, så hon kommer nu efteråt, och vi ska tillsammans ha det här miljöprojektet med Etap Jenes. Vi har också en container att packa ur...

Tull

Efter ett stressigt sommarläger har jag några dagars semester.

Om du behöver muntras upp titta på luriga prylar här.

Från tjuvlyssnat:

Vid fyratiden en söndagmorgon.
Full kille ~25: Livet är som en labyrint; ibland får man en spark i pungen och ibland får man ost sprutat i hela fejset.

Jag kommer tillbaka när sommarlägret är slut.. Cirka 15-16 juli.

Marchers accuse UN of shooting at Haiti funeral
By JONATHAN M. KATZ – 12 hours ago

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Gunfire broke out during a funeral procession Thursday for a popular Haitian priest, apparently killing a man and prompting angry protests that could inflame government opponents with days to go before elections in the troubled nation.

Marchers accused U.N. peacekeepers of shooting the unidentified man in the head during protests surrounding the funeral of the Rev. Gerard Jean-Juste, who was a close ally of exiled former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Protesters are incensed by the presence of foreign troops on Haitian soil.

The U.N. peacekeeping mission in Haiti issued a statement late Thursday strongly denying involvement in the protester's death. It cited unspecified preliminary information that the victim was killed by a blunt object, such as a thrown rock, rather than a bullet.

Witnesses at the scene said the man was shot in the head, and that protesters had thrown rocks at the U.N. troops. Associated Press reporters saw the man lying motionless in a pool of blood moments after the gunshots rang out.

U.N. mission spokeswoman Sophie Boutaud de la Combe told AP earlier that Brazilian peacekeepers fired at least seven warning shots to turn back aggressive members of the procession, and that the soldiers were ordered back to their base after the incident.

None of the protesters were seen holding guns and the killing took place on a busy thoroughfare intersected by multiple cross-streets and alleys.

The incident occured as about 2,000 people were carrying Jean-Juste's flag-draped coffin to the presidential palace to protest President Rene Preval's policies and his failure to bring Aristide back from South African exile.

Jean-Juste was a Roman Catholic priest known as an advocate for the poor, both in Haiti and in Miami, where he led the Haitian Refugee Center. Mourners sang pro-Aristide songs and slogans throughout the ceremony, which was officiated by Haiti's archbishop.

Most of Jean-Juste's mourners continued on to the palace gates, unaware that a protester had died. The casket was loaded into a hearse, to be carried to his birthplace in rural Cavaillon.

But as word of the shooting raced through the crowd, some mourners began smashing the windows of cars and buildings. Four men then carried the dead protester's body to the palace, laying it onto the same spot where Jean-Juste's casket had been minutes before, and screaming for Preval to resign.

"He was our brother, and they killed him," said a sobbing man who said he saw the shooting occur.

Haitian riot police moved in with shields and batons to make way for a police ambulance to remove his body. U.N. peacekeepers stood by across the plaza.

The shooting follows four weeks of protests led by medical students against the elimination of some classes from school curriculum, in favor of an increase in Haiti's minimum wage and against the 9,000-member U.N. force that has been in Haiti since Aristide's departure in 2004.

On Wednesday, student protesters attacked and burned a U.N. police vehicle.

Student-led demonstrations have preceded several recent upheavals, including the 2004 rebellion that ousted Aristide and the 1986 overthrow of dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier.

Jean-Juste died in early June at a Miami-area hospital following complications from a stroke and respiratory problems. He was 62. He was known for fighting on behalf of migrants in Florida.

He later returned to Haiti and was arrested in 2005 on suspicion of playing a role in the kidnapping and slaying of a prominent Haitian journalist. He denied any involvement, noting he'd been in Miami at the time of the killing. International human rights groups called the charges politically motivated.

While he was in jail, Aristide's party registered Jean-Juste as its candidate for president. But the party was not allowed to run in 2006, instead throwing its support behind Preval, who had been Aristide's prime minister. Lavalas supporters now consider Preval a traitor for failing to return Aristide from his South African exile.

The government released Jean-Juste from prison in 2006, prompting his return to Miami. Charges against him were later dropped, and he visited Haiti often in recent years, leading some 3,000 people in the capital's Cite Soleil slum in a rally for Aristide's return last April.

längsta dagen idag

Nyhetsläsning i sängen, skulle egentligen bara kolla att det för säkerhets skull inte var nån stor storm på g, med tanke på att Morten o Runar sitter på flyget hit just nu och att det har blåst en del idag och åskat och blixtrat en massa.

Så kom jag in på lite andra artiklar på SVD. Till exempel om att man inte längre ska få läsa upp betyg på komvux, bara om man fått IG. Sjukt ogenomtänkt. Gymnasieelever som vet att de inte får ett MVG kan lätt få för sig att skita totalt i ämnet, FÖR att få en andra chans. Om man inte vill slösa på resurser så tycker jag att detta snarare är ett steg tillbaka än framåt.. Och till exempel att Sollentuna ska få euro nästa år, BLANDAT med kronor. Vad i helvete är det för logik i det? Sist vi röstade om det blev det nej, och ett nej är ett nej, säga vad man vill om euron. Men ska den verkligen bara få smygas in så här, fast vi vet att de flesta av oss inte vill det? Inte så demokratiskt.

Igår var jag på en brasiliansk fest! Massa FN-gubbar, finns många brasilianare i den här stan, och jag tror att jag fick prata med alla de bästa igår! Hittade en snubbe som jobbar med miljöprojekt och kan förhoppningsvis hjälpa oss i ett miljöprojekt som vi pratat om att ha för Etappe Jeunesse i augusti. Och så var Youri från Zing där, av alla människor! En tjej från capoeiran, som tydligen alltid trott att jag var typ 17 år fram tills igårkväll och Flavio såklart. En väldigt trevlig kväll med många smaker och danser och toner från Brasilien. Jag fick mitt apelido (smeknamn som alla capoeiristas har!): Colibri.

Idag var det ju fotbolssträning som vanligt. Jag kan inte gå för jag opererade bort en vårta i fredags, och fick nöja mig med att se på idag också. Flavio var på besök, och skrev om det i sin blogg, med bilder och allt! På portugisiska, men det går fint att översätta här. Han har också skrivit om motivationen till smeknamnet Colibri, något som gör mig väldigt stolt!

En lång dag har det varit idag, i väntan på imorgon, då ett flyg ska landa och ett härligt återseende ska äga rum i PaP..
