I McCarthyismens propagandakjeller

LIBERTAS / Anyone who has been exposed to McCarthyism's well pissing in childhood and youth does not forget how it works.


It flows from the country's most active well pisserse a day. A disgusting stench is about to spread in schools, kindergartens, universities and other workplaces. That it is Libertas who directs the bubbling anti-communism and McCarthyism, surprises no one. Constant monitoring of the left's "infiltration" is the capital faction's answer to the Socialist Electoral Association's advance. So-called working groups have been established across large parts of the country. Secretaries with mercantile portfolios are employed.

In the propaganda cellar of McCarthyism there is a lot of old wine in new bottles. For most, it tastes sour: "Socialism is not democracy. Communism is dictatorship. The Socialist Election Association is led by communists and socialists," it says, for example. in an advertisement.

“Strong. But clearly", concludes the Norwegian McCarthyism's chief spearheads: Libertashøvdingene shipowners Erik Finn Lorentzen and Secretary General Trygve de Lange in a letter to members and "interested parties".

There are some on the left who believe that there is no particular reason to take, for example, Liberta's fluff and vulgar propaganda particularly seriously. They advocate this in defiance of the business millions, the weekly magazine NÅ, the monitoring groups and an intense "information campaign" which particularly affects the schools and attracts "promising" chief subjects to the Elingaard educational institution.

But there is reason to take Libertas business seriously because the movement can undoubtedly manage to organize the most effective socialist violence and McCarthyism in Norway. The latest developments also indicate that a new and more agitator form is on the way.

Anyone who has been exposed to McCarthyism's well pissing in childhood and youth does not forget how it works. Its main weapon is fear. The fear of the unknown. The horror of those who think differently. Socialists are equipped with the characteristics of villains and evil. Cunning, brutality, the ability to organize, subvert and infiltrate. The form is the twin brother of the anti-Semitic propaganda: Socialism is a secret society of ruthless people possessed with the most vile traits and plans.

Socialists are equipped with the characteristics of villains and evil.

There are many who believe that the well-pissery's constant excess leads to the edge of farce and circus in people's eyes. For most people, that's probably true. Those who regularly associate with left-wingers can see for themselves that socialists do not have fangs or green spit – to put it bluntly.

The well tapper

But not the others. When McCarthyism was at its worst in the 50s, it affected children and young people to a large extent. Anyone who has lain in terror under the covers and fantasized about what would happen when Russians and communists got hold of one knows how it can work. There were, for example, not a few people who mixed up the trial against the Jewish executioner Eichmann and socialism.

There are also many who can tell what it was like to be the only student in the class with a supporting family Arbeiderbladet. When the miss was preparing a portion of social studies, the newspaper was to be used. But she didn't say the newspaper. She told Aftenposten. Having parents who voted with the Labor Party was a shame in many places. Not to mention the communists or SF.

The legendary well-pisser in Sigbjørn Hølmebakks article on the anti-communist, carried out its disgusting work under the cover of night. Today's political well pissers roar in broad daylight and splash for all to hear. Millions of kroner are behind them.

They get the money from generous donors shipownere and other large capital that is allocated from the surplus that the employees have created through joint efforts. Theft, the trade unions call that sort of thing. Or embezzlement.

An ideal peace agreement that ends the war once and for all

FRED: Three hundred years after Immanuel Kant was born, the Prussian philosopher's arguments for a rational, clear-sighted pacifism are more relevant than ever. Europe has recently become a place where the opposition between good and evil is routinely invoked to justify irresponsible brutality, and where the drums of war sound ever louder. Kant is known as the author of one of the most famous anti-war essays in the history of philosophy: The Eternal Peace. Kant's cosmopolitanism is based on man's original, common possession of the earth and implies a recognition of a 'right' to visit all places without being treated with hostility.

HOLBERG PRIZE WINNER: Achille Mbembe's books all revolve around how the people in post-colonial states are kept down and marginalized.
