The numbers "2083" carries a lot of traffic with them these days. So who am I not to cash in on that...? To sort things out, however, I have to say that the "Merman"-part of it alludes to a certain Jimi Hendrix song, "1983 A Merman I Should Be". So why did this musician, who left us in 1970, sing about 1983? - His was a rather pessimistic outlook, singing about a cruel world approaching, one that was best met from a safe place under the sea. Thus, a merman he would be in 1983.
Now it's the year 2011. And we have Anders Behring Breivik who has written "2083", a quaint 1000-word manifesto about the need to face up to jihadist Islam. Now, I don't endorse blue murder, far from it. I'm a peaceful blogger, eeking out my metapolitical life within the pales of lawful society. Let me be clear on that point...! Having said that, however, I must confess that ABB is right in stating that political islam, PC-ism and the Frankfurt School of thinking, doing its best since 1923 to undermine western Faith and Tradition, are Major Threats that has to be Opposed.
I oppose sharia, islamism and PC-ism with peaceful means. ABB crossed the line into terror and revulsion. It was totally over the top, unnecessary, idiotic and whatnot. But sickening thoughts aside, now we live in a different reality from before 22 July. What reality? Well, since the internet is still free and we here in Scandinavia (I live in Sweden, bordering Norway) can still say what we want, even on hot issues like immigration and islam, superficially things haven't changed that much. As for the more far-reaching effects I guess you could say that ABB gave extremism a face. He created some sort of contrast on the far right, showing the world how a right wing extremist looks and thinks like. Apart from that, being a peaceful radical rightist is still possible if you have the gift of words, if you can intelligently state what you think about being European, about adhering to tradition and faith, about safety for our people in a world where multiculturalism, turbo liberalism, nihilism and materialism are all the rage.
So what now? On my Swedish site I blog daily on issues like Swedish history, traditionalism, religion and Swedish politics from a radical stance. Things might get colder, we might get tougher laws regarding what's possible to say on the internet, but as long as I'm in a peaceful struggle and don't use denigrating language on immigrants, PC politicians and my other formal enemies, then I guess I'm in the clear. If I'm not, well, bless you Big Brother, you can't keep a good man down. With the long Swedish tradition on freedom of speech it'll be hard to prohibit a Swedish man to say what he wants. The Swedish bill on freedom of speech is part of the constitution, almost like in the USA. It's far stronger than in e. g. Germany or France where they have outlawed "denial of the Holocaust". That isn't technically possible given Sweden's stronger bill of freedom of speech. And to change the constitution takes a couple of years so even as a worst case scenario, with laws against "islamophobia" or somesuch, we still have a lease of time to say what we want on jihadism and the blessings of PC-ism.
