ABC weapon-free zones


Then Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre met Condoleezza Rice, more than 20 years had passed since the people of the Nordic countries collected several million signatures for a treaty-based nuclear weapons-free zone in the Nordic region with guarantees about non-use of nuclear weapons against the zone by the nuclear powers. ABC weapons-free zones are and remain one of several confidence-building measures to execute the first-rate strategy of nuclear weapons in the NATO context and with the nuclear powers.

Sea 10 år has been since the Nordic Council of Åland's decision in 1994 to work for a nuclear weapons free zone in the Nordic countries. According to the Gallup, 92 percent of the Norwegian people are against the use of nuclear weapons. 87 percent of the United States population is against nuclear weapons.

The United States has:

  • terminated the ABM Agreement,
  • developed the rocket shield, "Starwars junior" to use,
  • "Mini-nuke" – the sword by blasting deep targets such as the caves of Osama Bin-Ladin in Afghanistan or by pre-emptive attacks knocking out other nuclear power command centers, to further establish US military strategic dominance,
  • attacked, occupied and waging an unlawful oil war in Iraq.

This military policy has led the majority of the Russian population to no longer be negative about Russian nuclear weapons. A large majority now rely on the Russian nuclear weapons security policy!

Norway and the Nordic countries is not profitable to continue to be a nuclear weapons advancement area in relation to the use of nuclear weapons against Finland and Russia. We in the Nordic countries and the Baltic countries have a great responsibility to help change Russian public opinion on nuclear weapons and NATO.

The opinion work for the abolition of nuclear weapons has. . .

Challenging climate sobriety

ECOLOGY: We need such voices as Holly Jean Buck, who criticizes wishful thinking – precisely to help bring forward a hopeful, serious and long-lasting climate fight, beyond all easy optimism.

The comprehensive self-insulation

COVID19: SARS in 2003, bird flu in 2005, MERS in 2012, Ebola in 2014, combined with the financial crisis, massive refugee flows, and revolutions in the Middle East and Greta Thunberg's shrill doomsday voice, had largely immunized the population against something as abstract as Covid19.

We call it precariat

WORK: Precarious working life is perhaps alluring with its freedom and flexibility. But with the precarious also comes the uncontrollable, the unpredictability and the lack of rights. Precarious work has become widespread in a subject such as journalism. Nevertheless, I am still tempted by the flexible tasks, by the sense of variability, freedom almost.

An ever-creeping feeling of loneliness

INSULATION: Acute loneliness affects both winners and losers. Daniel Schreiber visits a wealth of hermit literature – such as Thoreau's Walden and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. But what does social withdrawal mean today – whether it is the occupational or pandemic condition?

Can the technology revolution bring us out of disability?

ESSAY: Today, the extreme state is different than in the post-war period, when Sartre and Heidegger wrote about anxiety and authenticity. The existential threat today lies primarily in an uncertain planetary future.

An incantation against neo-fascism

CAPITALISM: Is not the struggle now about the right not to be exploited, but the right to be allowed to participate? There is much that is valuable in Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen's short book about the possible return of fascism in today's world – but it is weak in terms of empirical documentation.

The aesthetic manifestations of fascism

FASCISM: This does not necessarily manifest itself through mass spectacles and revolutionary fractures, and it is not a primarily European phenomenon. But like a product of political crises in the modern capitalist states.

Late fascism is here

CAPITALISM: The West's 'thin' fascism, which Bolt analyzes, is there especially because there is currently nothing else. Which does not rule out that it will one day grow as "thick" as Russian and Chinese fascism.

Ecology is playfully serious

ECOLOGY: Penguins' newly launched green series presents old and new books that change the way we think and talk about the living earth. You are in the age of mass extinction, but the philosopher Martin Heidegger brings us here on the trail of what we need.

The Israeli mentality and the militaristic undertones of society

ISRAEL: Two Swedish authors portray the people of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a large reportage book.

The world's best Catholics?

CANADA: With the discovery of children's graves in Canada, the Canadians are arguably making the Irish rank as "the world's best Catholics". Children from First Nations were outright stolen, imprisoned in isolation, forced into a foreign culture, a foreign language, subjected to sexual abuse and general neglect.

The battle is between carbo-fascism and eco-socialism

CARBON FASCISM: Climate change facilitates economic speculation and political positioning. Against corruption, we must prepare not only for a state of emergency, but for a climate war against declared enemies, writes Marc Alizart.
