Riksdagsval – En jämförelse

För några dagar sedan var det val i Nederländerna. Jag tänker dock inte ta upp resultatet av valet. Däremot är det ett bra tillfälle att jämföra den Nederländska valprocessen med den Svenska.

Den Svenska valprocessen har jag skrivit om vid två tidigare tillfällen; en gång innan ett tidigare val här, och sedan några dagar efter samma val här. Slutsatsen var då att jag inte är särskild imponerad av valmetoden som tillämpas i det Svenska valet. Continue reading →

Sweden, NATO and democracy

Let’s start with democracy:

According to Wikipedia, one of the key elements of democracy is ‘…day-to-day decision making of democracies is the majority rule…’. Another article, this time from an Oxford dictionary, mentions a democracy to be ‘…a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives…’.

Police brutality – Unique to the USA?

It has been impossible to ignore the cases of severe police brutality from departments all over the USA. Any reasonable person would wonder, after reading about this for the second, third, or even fourth time in the same year, why US police departments do not learn from previous examples. After all, how hard can it be? Continue reading →

Domestic terroristm

At the same time, Wikipedia mentions that there is no universally accepted definition of this phenomenon, leaving it to each country to set its own definition. Continue reading →

SAS, piloterna och flygresenärerna


Efter en vecka av förhandlingarna mellan SAS och piloternas fackförbund, lägger piloterna ner arbetet för att övergå i strejk. Ultimatumet från piloternas sida var satt till klockan 12 på måndag, och trots att det rapporterades i nyhets media att partierna hade kommit nära en överenskommelse, så lyckades man inte fram till klockan 12. Resultatet var att klocka 12:01 så var strejken verklighet. Inga SAS flygplan lyftes efter det och tusentals resenärer antingen kom inte iväg, inte tillbaks eller fick kliva ut flygplanet de precis hade hunnit boarda. Continue reading →

Preliminary reading news!

Yup, indeed, another new book is on its way!
Once again, it is by me!

Update, 2022-06-28:

The writing of the new book is done! Now there’re only a review and layout issues to address before publication. The title, you may ask, here you go:

The Deep

It will first come out as Paperback, followed by Ebook a little later.

You may want to find out more about it, or even be interested in reading it! But you’ll have to hold your horses for it to be written and published first. Even though I’m on it, it still is a work in progress and far from done. I’ll keep you posted! Continue reading →

Dawid Isaak

A well known name, at least out here in Sweden. Unfortunately, not as well known abroad as that might have impacted his case greatly and positively.

In 2001, Isaak, an Eritrean journalist and permanent resident and citizen of Sweden, was working in his former Continue reading →
