It takes a mature religion to handle laughter. The Jews have had an extraordinarily grim history, but one of their greatest survival mechanisms is the ability to laugh both at their circumstances and at themselves.

 

Satire-writers always point out the foibles and fables of those higher up the food chain. Your targets must be the proud and the powerful.

If you make fun of people less fortunate than you, even if it is for legitimate satiric effect, then it is not satire. It is bullying. Being a bully is never funny. Be only bully toward bullies to protect the less fortunate than you. In the same way as; Be only a doxter toward doxters to reveal doxters and protect victims of Internet hate.

 

Satire, like folk music and freedom songs, works best when it is comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.

 

In EU radical islamists have since the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy have tried to shut up the western freedom of speech calling satir islamophobic. Satir is not islamophobic. In the same spirit radical islamits try put the term islamophobia together with antisemitism. Antisemitism is not islamophobia. Satir is satir. Antisemitism is antisemitism. Islamophobia is islamophobia. An orange is an organge and an apple is an apple. Freedom of speech is freedom of speech. But. E.g. in Sweden, in the self-proclaimed "land of all Humans Rights", you draw satir on your own risk. In Sweden you can as an artist end up in jail.

 

How goes my interest of scritunizing current events through the eye of satir, hand in hand with my legal- and EH career? Well. It don't. For years I hold my drawings in my drawer.

My relatives told me aleady in 90s start work with satire. I chose in those days international business.

 

In 2009, in the aftermath of my divorce, I applyed to Konstfack, the largest art college in Sweden. Konstfack is famous for its radical art, an art which often shake the Swedish society and put the finger on important, but sensitive spots, as free art should do.

 

Konstfack usually destroy applicant molding samples, but one professor called me and asked me to fetch my paintings. I was the only one he called of all who had applyed. He didn't want destroy my paintings, since, according to the professor, they had originality.

I was asked to re-apply, as they wanted to ensure that I was genuinely dedicated. I was on my deepest set back at that time. Without money, a job, home or a family. All set backs happened more or less during the same six (6) month. Whole my former life was wiped out and the world went at the same time in 2008 into a deep financial crise. When also my beloved K9 died during the same time period I was thinking that some one up in the sky was watering my back. At the same time I had got into the law school. That was the only positive thing that happened at that time. I chose between the law school and the College of Arts. Between mind and heart. I chose the mind. I chose the law school. In those days I still believed that the law in Sweden was followed equally from the authority level to the individual level. As it should.

I still thought that the students in the law school was the most progessiva people in the society, but it was the opposite. No critical thinking. No questions asked. Only stuffing.

Too often, the Swedish law students don't learn the spirit of the law. Which leads to incorrect official decisions, rulings and judicial care works. Most Swedish law students learn only the minimum. In the law school in Sweden the grades don't reflect how much you know. Often it reflects only that you to your exam have learned the answers from old exams.

 

The turning point for me was the terrorattack against Charlie Hebdo in 2015. That was my red line concerning taking out my drawings from my drawer One of the most important things in a democratic western society is the feedom of speech; A freedom you must protect despite your own political and religious views. The two following weeks after the attack i put my law studies aside and draw satire. Now I have start to publish my drawings. Undemocratic foces have won the day when we become afraid to use our freedom of expression.

 

A thinking human (homo sapiens sapiens) who don't with all her means work for the western democratic society, free world and freedom of speech, are not a thinking human. She are just a spineless mirror of nothing.

 

I should mention. European, especially west european satir is more hars than american satire. American satire is more humourous. I draw both kind of satire.

 

I also paint fine art. Mostly in oil.

Sionism

 

Sionism är den politiska strävan att åstadkomma judarnas återvändande till Eretz Yisrael, Landet Israel.

En avgörande skrift blev Theodor Herzls Der Judenstaat (1896), där författaren propagerade för bildandet av en judisk stat. Herzl bildade 1897 World Zionist Organization (WZO), den organisation som idag delar ut Herzl-priset.

 

När Israel utropades 14 maj 1948 var sionismens främsta mål uppfyllt. WZO:s främsta uppgifter är nu att främja det judiska folkets enhet, uppmuntra judar att flytta till Israel samt stärka staten Israel.
