I’ve been busier then a duck in a flood since yesterday but especially today.
I seem to have come face to face with that old expression, the faster I run the more behind I get. I guess that happens when we put off things need doing sooner rather then all at once later.
So …. checking out my Europe News site I came across this, which they grabbed from Gates of Vienna. It isn’t too long but the parts that really caught my attention were the following. See link for all of it and some interesting comments.
The Nordic countries’ greatest advantage, historically speaking, has been an ethnically homogeneous population. Our greatest competitive advantage is now being destroyed by state-sponsored politics. As an analogy, let’s say you had a big pile of gold and professor Thomas Hylland Eriksen told you to flush half of the gold down the toilet because this was supposed to be economically beneficial.
Hylland Eriksen said in an interview in 2008 that “The most important ‘blank spot’ now consists of deconstructing the majority so thoroughly that it can never be called the majority again”. If he had said that Somalis or Pakistanis should be deconstructed, this would have triggered strong reactions. Why is it always white Europeans, and only them, who are to be deconstructed and have their countries and cultural history taken away from them?
I believe that’s “The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”
But your point is well-taken…
