Friday was our first day of being back in Sweden and it was a very sad Friday. Here are some thoughts on what has happened and happening. No one will get out of this mess clean,
I saw Leonardo Di Caprio’s documentary for National Geographic called Before the Flood. All in all the message is good. I’m not in the denial camp nor the global change hysteria camp.
There are many people whom I respect and whose values I regard highly but on one issue I don’t agree with. That is voting and that it is useless. They say it doesn’t matter.
First, some reflection of the month outside our family bubble. The world is so full of critical events at this time and age. 2016 will be a direction-changer or further struggling in the same policies.
Discussion on the status of future human genetic enhancement policies. The conclusion lands on the need to guarantee individual rights in a firm and constitutional way. Also to further expand and increase the discussion and awareness about the forthcoming bio-technological possibilities –
How can anyone ever say that Charlie Hebdo “pushed the limits and suffered the consequences”? I have heard this over the past year from people who one thought of either lived their lives in a free speech democracy or looked up to it.
Bosnia was first mentioned 753 AD and the first conglomeration called the Banate of Bosnia began already in 1154. In 1377 the Kingdom of Bosnia was formed and the whole point in these dates is that Bosnia and Herzegovina as an entity is not new.
When I was five years old I wanted to visit Sweden, because I was made there, you know the mom & dad thing happened while my parents and my sister were visiting my uncle.

Let’s dive into the crazy geopolitical vortex in the Balkans. Did you know that Bosnia & Herzegovina has one opening to the ocean? It’s in Neum and although something, it’s not in direct contact with open waters since Croatian islands stand in the way.
Glöm aldrig dom mörka krafterna och det värsta folkmordet i Europa sedan 2:a världskriget. Srebrenica var en kulmination av dessa krafter för exakt 20 år sedan – 1995-07-11. Ett kollektivt svek från FN och andra huvudländer.
Politics are like sewer canalization. You can stop following or think about it for a while. But it will always stay the same. The sad reason for bigger and more bureaucratic corrupt governments are the masses of people who ignore their own individual and collective potential.
Here’s my comparison on the principle of freedom by John Stuart Mill vs. John Rawls. Both are peaceful theories that seek to ensure liberty and justice. But I’ll argue that Mill’s view is longer lasting (universal) compared to that one of Rawls,
Recently I thought through some music video ideas. One was within the topic of the military-industrial complex. Former U.S. president Dwight Eisenhower’s farewell speech to the nation is a classic and my idea about the music video stopped short there.
This film is interesting in its ideas and vision of the future, not as a film in it self. So I’ll focus only on the visionary content of it, that really resonates with our possible future.
For more than ten years I have not owned a TV set. And only in my childhood memories I can remember doing sloppy watching, zapping through the channels, watching MTV and other late 80’s and 90’s shows.
