Anand Giridharadas, forfatter av Winners Take All: «We must decide whether, in the name of ascendant values such as efficiency and scale, we are willing to allow democratic purpose to be usurped by private actors who often genuinely aspire to improve things but, first things first, seek to protect themselves. We must ask ourselves why […]

The Great Derangement

Amitav Ghosh, indisk forfatter, om boken «The great derangement». The plan of the Western elites I think today’s politics is not as deranged as you think.

What happens is, […]

Democracy is not based on human rationality. It is based on human feelings. During elections you are not asked “What do you think”. You are actually asked “How do you feel”. And if someone can manipulate your emotions effectively, democracy will become an emotional puppet show. Yuval Harari.

Dagens Næringsliv 29. april 2018: «Ap vil ha hjelp av private til å bygge seg rundt eldrebølgen» Kommersielle boligbyggere bør hjelpe en eldreomsorg i knipe. Arbeiderpartiet vil vri på husbanklån, tilskudd og lovbestemmelser for å få kommersielle aktører med på å bygge flere boliger der eldre kan bo lenger. – Ikke noe problem, sier Baard […]

Åpne grenser og migrasjon er ikke løsningen.

Hvorfor «hjelpe dem der de er?» De aller fattigste, og de som trenger hjelpen mest, har ikke råd til å flykte. Dersom de mest ressurssterke flykter, vil de gjenværende være enda dårligere rustet til å forbedre den lokale levestandarden. Vi er nødt til å «Ta hele verden i bruk». Å flytte alle til et annet […]
