Gender and racial discrimination, surveillance, exploitation and so forth are only effects. The real problem is – that it is possible to suppress the people by false Science or false descriptions of the world – that supports Might Is Right. Or like this. We are not genuine citizens.

Historic Sarcasm In a Swedish Newspaper

On Christmas Eve, 24 December 2012, The biggest Swedish newspaper published ”A Christmas card from Jan Lööf” Lööf is the artist that has made the card.

The card show the Swedish Prime Minister and Minister for Finance in a junkyard that is Sweden.

It was only published in the printed paper (as far as I know).

Political satire about Swedish politics, with an edge, is almost unknown. So, when this card is published by Dagens Nyheter it is really interesting. It is also so that the total fuck up of the economy is within Sweden a new insight. The crisis in Sweden began this autumn – according to Swedish media.

The Card

Hallå! Jag önskar alla mänskor en God Jul! :
Hello! I wish all (mänskor (?) humans/people is spelled: människor) a Merry Christmas.

Skrot: junkyard

Svedala: Nickname of Sweden, it is also a town and Municipality in southern Sweden

Fredrik Reinfeldt, Prime Minister

Anders Borg, Minister for Finance

Julian Assange - December 2012

Julian Assange: the fugitive
"Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for six months. In a rare interview, we ask the WikiLeaks founder about reports of illness, paranoia – and if he'll ever come out"
 "Sweden refuses to behave like a reasonable state. It refuses to give a guarantee that I won't be extradited to the US." But Sweden says the decision lies with the courts, not the government. "That is not true," he snaps. "It is absolutely false. The government has the final say." If he's right, and it really is as unequivocal as that, why all the legal confusion? "Because there are enormous powers at play," he says, heavy with exasperation.
