Sigurd Evensmo

Evensmo was formerly editor of Orientering, MODERN TIMES's forerunner.

The poisoning of humanity by militarism

Orientering 1971: In our time of invasion and occupation [read Ukraine], MODERN TIMES brings here Sigurd Evensmo's review of Finn Alnæs' The Fortress is Falling. A book quote reads: "Without blinking, we follow the motto 'the end justifies the means'. Without blinking, we follow a security policy that makes us accept national and international crimes."

The Nobel Prize for Chaplin 

The time is not "in" to give Chaplin the Nobel Peace Prize – it's a shame he hasn't received it long ago.

Our view of the United States

We socialists are often given square opinions about the United States and American politics, Sigurd Evensmo wrote in 1963. A polarized US debate of the kind we see before the election in 2016 is a tradition with strong roots.

The dream of the people

The simple fact is that a large part of the working class has settled with the capitalist welfare state, and is happy to let the dreams go to Majorca.
