14 points to identify fascism

Take a test on you politicians, how much fascism is there in them?
1. Forward is Backward.  Fascists insist that everything necessary for human life was already discovered in the past and only needs to be properly interpreted by contemporary leaders.
2. Progress is Evil. The new is not only not needed but is dangerous in the minds of fascists who are prepared to rely on technical breakthroughs only to maintain or even restore the past.
3. Only Fools Think.  For fascists, members of the intelligentsia are “potentially dangerous” and thus must be marginalized and eventually destroyed.
4. He who is Not with Us is Against Us.  Fascists view any display of independent thinking as a betrayal and as a challenge to their efforts to stupefy the population.
5. The Foreigner is the Enemy.  Fascists seek to unify society by promoting fear and hatred of the outsider.
6. Strength is with the Failures.  Fascists have always understood that those who are doing well are less likely to be mobilized against this or that outsider group than those who are not and who need that sense of hostility in order to feel themselves exceptional and superior.
7. The Country is Threatened by a Worldwide Conspiracy. Fascists have always explained any shortcomings by pointing to the existence of an active and remarkably effective conspiracy of one kind or another.
8. Enemies are Simultaneously Strong and Weak.  Fascists invariably portray their enemies as strong so they can blame them for all their problem and “at one and the same time very weak so as to suggest that victory over them is inevitable.”
9. All Life is a Struggle. Most people want happiness, but fascists insist that the goal of life is “the uninterrupted struggle for a happy life.”
10. Plebes and Patricians.  Fascist regimes are like a staircase, with the denizens of each step fearing those who are above them and dreaming of occupying their place and with the top man viewing everyone below as his servants.
11. To Sacrifice Oneself is Beautiful.  Fascists insist that each individual must see as his highest goal the sacrifice of himself or herself for the good of the system.
12. The Cult of the Real Man.  Sooner or later, fascists arrive at the thought that they can and must get involved in sexual relationships.
13. The Voice of the People.  Democracy uses the will of the people to take decisions, while fascism uses them for justifying what it has done.

14. New Speak.  Fascism destroys language in order to destroy thought, presenting the world in black and white terms with no opportunity for nuance or discussion. And it abuses the language in another way: it refuses at least under current conditions to label itself fascist while denouncing everyone it doesn’t like as fascist.

Indledning til visningen af Selma i Albertslund den 19. april 2015.

Selma er historien om tre måneder, der i 1965 ændrede USAs historie, da Southern Christian Leadership Conference – SCLC og Martin Luther King førte an i kampen for at sikre lige stemmeret. Den legendariske march fra Selma til Montgomery som kulminerede med at præsident Johnson underskriver loven om lige stemmeret, en af de mest betydningsfulde sejre for borgerrettigheds­bevægelsen i USA.

Når det lige blev byen Selma, skyldtes det de sortes læres fagforening, som gik i spidsen med aktionerer for lige stemmeret allerede i 1963, hvilket førte til utallige sammenstøt med politiet der var ledet af en brutal hvid racistisk sherif.

Særligt aktionen 7. oktober 1963 – dagen der blev kendt som ‘Freedom Day’ ses som starten. Her stillede 350 sorte sig i kø foran retsbygningen, for at lade sig registrere til som vælgere.

Da embedsmændene i retsbygningen valgte at gå til frokost det meste af dagen, var det kun få der blev registreret, men aktionen blev alligevel anset som en sej, hvorefter borgmesteren indførte  et forsamlingsforbud i byen.

I starten af 1965 planlægger man den første march fra Selma som blev kendt som ‘The Teachers March’ hvor 110 lærer marchere mod retsbygningen. I de følgende uger vokser aktionerne sig hurtig større.

I marts er både King og Malcom X i Selma og samme dag som Malcom X taler, fremsætter præsident Johnson en udtalelse hvor han støttede Selma-kampangen.

Søndag 7. marts 1965 skulle The Edmund Pettus Bridge få en central betydning i det sorte USA’s selvbevidsthed. En ubetydelig bro opkaldt efter en sydstatsgeneral og Ku Klux Klan leder.

600 personer deltager i en march som efter kort tid bliver overfaldet af sheriffen og militsfolk. Dagen er siden blevet kendt som ”The Blody Sonday.”

På trods af at 60 personer var blevet såret, blev en ny march sat i gang allerede to dage senere. Nu deltog 2000 personer på broen og de blev igen mødt af politi og milits, men denne gang valgte man at stoppe og vende om, for at undgå endnu en konfrontation.

Den 21. marts starter den endelige march, nu havde præsident Johnson udkommanderet 3000 soldater og FBI folk til at beskytte marchen mod det lokale politi og klanfolk. Da marchen fire dage senere nåede Montgomery var den vokset fra 8.000 deltagere til 25.000. Fire måneder senere underskrev Præsident Johnson ”Voting Rights Act.” To år efter Martin Luther King havde holdt sin berømte tale ”I had a Dream” i Washington.

Enden på historien kender vi desværre alt for godt, mordet på King i 1968, men hvad var næste skridt?

King havde planer om en ny march, men denne gang handlede det ikke om stemmeret, men om social retfærdighed. Han havde faktisk en drøm om at forene de fattige, uansete kulør, til en ny bevægelse for et mere lige samfund.

Efter mordet var SCLC’s lederskab af borgerretskampen ikke stærkt, og selv om organisationen stadig eksisterer, har den som politik bevægelse lille betydning.

Andre kampe stod for, Vietnam-krigen og fredsbevægelsen, Black Panter Party og et hav af enkeltsagsorganisationer præger den amerikanske venstrefløj. Dertil et hav af små socialist- og socialdemokratiske partier med små medlemstal. Men også flere miljøorganisationer, Greenpeace kender vi alle, men der er kommet nye til på det seneste som har markeret sig stærk mod yderlig udbygning af fossilt brændstof. The Green Party står også stadig stærkere, de fik således 2,5% af stemmerne ved præsidentvalget i 2008.

Men der sker noget på den amerikanske venstrefløj, som altid har været meget splittet. ”Socialist Alternative” i Seattle har fået valgt et byrådsmedlem ind, og partiet plan er at opbygge en landsdækkende socialistisk bevægelse. Det er første gang siden 1907 det er lykkedes for en socialist at blive valgt i USA.

Den største politiske sejer i Seattle var at få hævet mindstelønnen  til 15$, hvor forbundsregering har fastsat den til 2,5$.

De fleste har nok hørt om Occupy bevægelsen som opstod efter finanskrisen i 2008. Den spiller stadig en rolle, men mere som social bevægelse end som politisk bevægelse. Deres største sejer er nok sloganet om de rigeste 1% og resten til de 99%. Altså en direkte fortsættelse af Kings planer om en bred social bevægelse.

Senest har vi set kampagnen ”Black Lives Mattters” efter mordet på en sort teenager i Ferguson. Filmen har i slutningen en reference til mordet. Her har et fornyet Black Panter Party ofte stået i spidsen med at organiserer demonstrationerne i Ferguson og flere andre byer. Her har man også set en genoptagelse af det internationale solidaritet-aspekt mellem de sortes kamp og palæstinensernes kamp. Et aspekt der går tilbage til 1979 hvor SCLC efter et møde med PLO fremhævede Palæstinas ret til selvbestemmelse.

Vestrefløjen har vundet en hel del af sine enkeltsagskampe, kvinders rettigheder, LGBT og senest har flere stater forbudt fracking af olie og gas. Med det er også områder som er konstant under angreb fra højrefløjen. Specielt kvinders reproduktions rettigheder er under angreb. Senest er en kvinde dømt 20 års fængsel for at føde et dødt foster. Og lige præcis fængslerne viser hvor skævt de amerikanske samfund er, og hvor korrupt det juridiske system er. Amerikanerne fængsler sorte og fattige i en grad som ikke har sit sidestykke noget sted på jorden. Indsatte i USA udgør således 22% af fanger på kloden på trods af at USA’s befolkning kun udgør 4,4% af klodes befolkning.

Der er stadig lang vej endnu før Martin Luther King kan se sin drøm opfyldt.

God fornøjelse med filmen.

 

 

 

To move an existing WordPress to secure SSL/HTTPS

It’s easy to get you existing WordPress installation to secure SSL/HTTP.

I think you know how to prepare the server or you isp do, else use Google.

Now to WordPress, there are tree step:

1. The settings in General: Configure-HTTPS-for-WordPress[1]

 

 

 

 

2. wp-config.php:
Write this in wp-config.php

define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true);

Now you WordPress is on SSL but the HTTPS is broken. Forget Google it is not the templates fault, and forget plugin’s or rewrite – it kills the cat. The problem is all you old stuff, stored in the database. It’s full of http:// ’s

3. Tweak you database, (backup is a good thing here):

The table YOUPREFIX_posts is full of ‘http://YOU_URI’. We are going to change them to ‘https://YOU_URI.

There are two columns: post_content and guid – Run these two sql updates

sql = UPDATE `YOUPREFIX_posts` SET `post_content` = REPLACE(`post_content`, 'http://YOU_URI', 'https://YOU_URI') WHERE `post_content` LIKE '%http://YOU_URI%';
sql = UPDATE `YOUPREFIX_posts` SET `guid` = REPLACE(`guid`, 'http://YOU_URI', 'https://YOU_URI') WHERE `guid` LIKE '%http://YOU_URI%';

You need YOU_URI or you break external links.

Maybe there are other tables e.g. Comments, I don’t use them, but it’s the same rumble as above.

And now you fly – or not. You probably have more than one plugins there is broken. You have to edit them or retire them. Often they is calling home for images and that break the HTTPS chain.

New stuff you put up is automatic made as https.

International fast food strejke og den danske forbindelse

I sidste uge skete der noget. Noget revolutionerende som ikke er set før. Og så er der en dansk forbindelse, af den positive slags.

Selv om dansk presse plejer at vælte sig i selvforherligelse når Danmark bliver omtalt i udlandet og fremhævet som eksempel til efterfølgelse, har der været forbløffende stille om denne begivenhed.

Hvad var det der skete?

Men hvor kommer den danske forbindelse ind og hvorfor strejkede danske fastfood ansatte ikke?

Det er der en meget god grund til, for de Danmark var netop inspirationen og drømmen for konfliktens resultat.

Hvorfor er Danmark så anderledes fra resten af verden?

Det er der en simpel grund til. Danske arbejdere stod sammen og kæmpede for deres ret til en overenskomst.

Fagbevægelesen startede i 1988 en blokade mod McDonalds og den øvrige fagbevægelse inden for områderne Transport og Byg sluttede op så McDonalds hverken kunne få bygget sine restauranter færdig eller få leveret vare. Finske arbejdere indledte også en solidaritetsaktion. Desuden fulgte forbrugerne opfordringen til at boykotte restauranter uden overenskomst.

Det bliver spændende at se hvad der sker nå denne overenskomst udløber om et par år. Der er sket meget siden 88, fagbevægelsen er svækket og blokadevåbnet har EU ødelagt. Den nye internationale solidaritet viser forhåbentlig vejen frem.

Nedenfor er presseklip fra sagen samlet af Arbejdermuseet.

Den hemmelige sundhedsreform

Er der nogen der kan huske lægekonflikten fra foråret? Er der nogen der kan huske hvad den handlede om? Er der nogen der kender formålet med at bruge mia. på supersygehuse? Er der nogen der kender regeringens sundhedspolitik? Hvorfor bygger kommunerne sundhedscentre?

Først og fremmest, denne plan er ikke regeringens men et left over fra Lars  Løkke, og formålet er besparelser, dårligere service og favorisering af privathospitaler. Den rigtige adresse er nok Moderniseringsstyrelsen, som så meget andet hemmeligt for tiden. Opbygningen af sundhedscentre har stået på siden 2006 og har været understøttet af staten med puljemidler.

De nye sygehuse er ikke super, de har 15-20% færre senge end de nuværende. De er bare superhurtige til at sende folk ud når de er behandlet. Patientpleje vil ikke længere være en hospitalsopgave, den opgave flyttes til sundhedscentrene. Derved kommer Danmark på niveau med Sverige med 2,7 seng pr. 1000 indbyggere mod Danmarks nuværende 3,5 seng pr 1000 indb. Begge tal er de laveste i EU selv om antallet af senge er faldet i hele EU.

Lægekonflikten havde to hovedpunkter: Lægeklinikker drevet af private firmaer og plejeopgaven som regionerne ikke vil betale lægerne for at udføre. Salgsargumentet med de firmadrevne lægeklinikker var mangel på praktiserende læger i udkantsdanmark. Det holder bare ikke sammen med at der bygges sundhedscentre med lægeklinikker i alle byerne. Desuden har regionerne allerede i dag mulighed for at oprette klinikker og ansætte læger. En ordning der også bliver brugt i stor udstrækning i de tyndt befolkede områder, hvor der er dårlig økonomi i at oprette en privat praksis.

Det andet punkt, plejeopgaven. Der ville ikke være meget sparet hvis man skulle kompensere lægerne for opgaven, men når opgaven overgår til sundhedscentrene med billigere personale, hænger historien sammen. For sundhedscentrene bliver ikke bemandet med specialuddannede læger men med nye kandidater ofte hentet ind fra udlandet. Sundhedscentrerne indgår nemlig heller ikke i turnus for uddannelse af nye læger i de nuværende planer.

Trods alle besparelserne hænger økonomien ikke sammen i planen, alene hovedstadsregionen mangler mindst 4 mia. Det har bl.a. ført til at det nye hospital i Hillerød planlægges uden køkken. Men når patienterne ikke skal plejes skal de vel heller ikke spise.

Desuden er der spørgsmålet om  statens afgang til patientjournaler, som er en nyskabelse i loven. Læs artikel i Information.
Patient-lægeforholdet er ændret. Patienten bliver til klient i det offentlige system

Men har vælgerne valgt denne politik, eller er den bare kommet ud af det blå?

Danske journalister og videnskabsjournalistik

En kildekritik.

Historien startede med denne tweet:

som linker til denne artikel i videnskab.dk

Journalister ved for lidt om videnskab

Det er jo ikke nogen stor nyhed, for videnskabsfolk især. Når man sammenligner danske medier med udenlandske, hvordan de dækker videnskab, så er Danmark et hul i jorden.

Så idag har Berlinske denne historie (findes også i bt.dk:

Tvillinge-boom på retur

med denne underrubrik: “Flere i gamle dage”, og så hopper kæden af. Man spørger Kaare Christensen, professor i Epidemiologi og leder af Det Danske Tvillingregister om årsagen til et fald i antallet af tvillingefødsler efter år 1900. Han væver så lidt:

»Nogle mener, at vi deri kan aflæse de første tegn på vores moderne fertilitetsproblemer, for man ændrer ikke på vores gener på 30 år. Årsagen må være noget i vores miljø, der ændrede sig dengang, men præcis hvad har vi ikke kunnet påvise,…«

Problemet er bare at det hverken er Kaare Christensen eller Tvillingeregisterets forskningsområde. Hvis man gennemgår hans publikationer er der ikke én som handler om årsagen til tvillingefødsler. Det er da også et forskningsfelt der hører under – tja, der er ikke rigtig nogen der forsker systematisk i det. Det er heller derfor man har et tvillingeregister, det er af helt andre grunde:

“Tvillinger udgør en enestående kilde til udforskning af årsager til sygdomme og komplekse egenskaber (f.eks. psykologiske eller fysiske egenskaber som f.eks. blodtryk og vægt).”

og her kommer Kaare Christensens forskning eksemplarisk til sin rette, med en lang række studier i sygdomme.
Sjovt nok kunne journalisten bare have læst sin egen avis for at finde ud af formålet med tvillingeregisteret.

Nu skulle man jo tror at journalisten bliver glad for at man henvender sig og gør opmærksom på at artiklen indeholder noget vrøvl, men sådan går det ikke.

Og det var så langt det forsøg på at højne kvaliteten i dansk videnskabsjournalist nåede, standet på journalistens ego.

Hvor gik det galt?
Det kan man jo kun gætte om, artiklen efterlader ingen spor til årsagen om hvorfor man citerer forskeren og inddrager årsagen til tvillingesvangerskaber de sidste 150 år. Historien handler jo om en ændring i teknikken ved kunstig fertilitetsbehandling. Men lad os se på konklusionerne på artiklen i videnskab.dk som vi startede med.

“Journalisterne behandler nemlig gerne forskerne som kilder, men ikke på en måde, hvor ny viden får en rolle blandt de øvrige nyheder.”

Man indrager altså en forsker men relaterer ikke mandens forskning til det artiklen handler om. Forskeren bliver bare en legitimering.
Forskerne i videnskab.dk’s undersøgelser beskriver selv årsagen som:

“…at de kun kunne få succes med at trænge igennem hos medierne, hvis de accepterede mediernes spilleregler.”

Så journalisten i Berlinske var ikke interesseret i Kaare Christensens forskning, kun i hans titel. Synd, jeg er sikker på at Kaare Christensen har masser af viden om tvillingeforskning som der kunne komme masser af glimrende journalistik ud af.

At bedrive videnskabsjournalist er ikke et venstrehåndsarbejde ved siden af petitjournalistikken. Det forudsætter  en basal viden om videnskabens natur og vilkår. Og Danmark fortjener bedre.

(ps. Den gængse forklaring på faldet i flerfoldesvangerskaber, er at kvinderne begyndte at få færre børn, og dermed faldt risikoen for at få tvillinger. Men reelt ved man det ikke.)

The girl on the fence

The girl on the fence, a classic and frequent motif in art, advertising and private photos.
An image analysis just for fun. Read in Danish

Little Girl on FenceThe fence in English language: Fence – Fencing – Defense.
Fence, to fence for themselves, and to defend himself.

The fence, the safe framing of the childhood, the world within and the world without. Where my world goes to, protection against the outside world. The fence is the framework for your and your friends, but also the wonderment, what’s on the other side, curiosity about the outside world, an invitation to fencing his way in the world.

Early in childhood comes the urge to investigate the world, fence arouse the curiosity, the world is greener on the other side of the fence. So the fence must be attempted surmounted to reach the promised land. The fence will be the basis for hunting excursion and the fence are the place where you are showing off your hunting prey.

The fence where you gather with friends, seeking solitude for reflection or waiting for that special someone. For fence promises you that there’s someone out there, one to  wait for, the special one. Where my world goes, this is where I will conquer the world and make it mine.

When the world behind the fence become too small, the fence becomes a prison. Then it’s time to find the hole in the fence, or you can climb over. The fence is the symbolic boundary between childhood and adulthood, the border there has to be crossed. Time to leave the safe-conditioned and really discover the world on the other side of the fence.

Take you best dress and climb over. What draws? Romanticism, the one and only, or adventure? Discover the great world, do the big youth trip? And then, the world is still full of fences to be overcome. Or are you running out in the countryside with bare feet.

And then there are those who never manage to escape, trapped behind the fence physically or mentally. Entirely in the fence.

Pigen på hegnet

Pigen på hegnet, et klassisk og hyppigt motiv i kunst, reklame og private fotos.
En billedanalyse kun for sjov. In English

Little Girl on FenceHegnet på engelsk: Fence – fencing – defence.
Hegnet, at fægte for sig, og at forsvare sig.

Hegnet den trygge indramning af barndommen, verden indenfor og verden udenfor. Hertil min verden går, beskyttelsen mod verden udenfor. Hegnet udgør rammen for vennerne, men også undren over hvad der på den anden side, nysgerrigheden på verdenen udenfor, en opfordring til at fægte sig frem i verdenen.

Tidligt i barndommen kommer trangen til at undersøg verden, hegnet vækker nysgerrigheden, verden er grønnere på den anden side af hegnet. Så hegnet må forsøges forceret for at nå det forjættede land. Hegnet bliver udgangspunkt for jagtudflugtterne og hegnet bliver steder hvor man viser jagtbyttet frem.

Hegnet bliver grænsen hvor man samles med venner, søger ensomhed til fordybelse eller venter på den eneste ene. For hegnet lover jo at der er en derude, en at vente på. Herfra min verden går, det er herfra jeg erobre verden og gør den til min.

Når verden bag hegnet bliver for lille, hegnet bliver en fængsel. Så er det om at finde hullet i hegnet, eller man må forcere det. Hegnet bliver  den symbolske grænse mellem barn og voksen, grænsen der skal krydses. Tid til at forlade den trygge rede og for alvor opdage verden på den anden side af hegnet.

Tage sin bedste kjole og klatre over. Hvad trækker? Romantikken, den eneste ene, eller eventyret? Opdage den store verden, ungdommens store rejse? Og så er verden alligevel fuld af hegn der skal overvindes. Eller skal man at løbe ud i det grønne med bare fødder.

Og så er der dem som aldrig lykkes at undslippe helt, fanget bag hegnet fysisk eller psykisk. Man skal ikke gå i hegnet.

Træer i byen

Red byens træer bad mig skrive noget om træer og deres betydning for bymiljøet.

Et træ er et forunderligt væsen, nogen kan bliver næsten uendelig gamle, og i forhold til mennesker lever de meget længe. Der står træer som spirede i år nul, i Sverige har man fundet et træ der er 10.000 år gammelt. Ikke den samme stamme, men det samme individ.

BI5nEBOCIAAdLPaLivets træ, 2000 år gammelt træ i Sydafrika.

gamle-traer_huon-fyr
Huon fyr fra Tasmanien, som er mindst 10.500 år gammelt.

kongeegen
Kongeegen i Jægerspris 1600 år gammel.
Når vi bliver født og vokser er vi det samme hele vejen igennem, og når vi vokser, vokser vi over det hele, sådan ca.
Træer vokser kun på ydersiden, vi kan se det som åreringene i træet, en for hver år. Og modsat os, så kan træet ændre sit DNA der hvor det vokser.
Den er en praktisk ting at kunne når man bliver meget gammel og ikke kan flytte sig, klima og omgivelser har det med at ændre sig over tid.
Det er derfor at træer som ellers slet ikke er skabt til at gro i Danmark alligevel kan overleve. Fænomenet kaldes tit at træet akklimatiserer sig, men i virkeligheden er det træets interne evolution. Så et stort gammelt træ har brugt hundredvis af år på blive perfekt til at kunne gro netop der hvor det gror.
Man kan godt flytte det, men kun til noget der ligner den oprindelige placering.
Et træ, eller gruppe af træer udgør et helt økosystem. Der behøver ikke være en hel skov. Svampe, mosser, lav, insekter, fugle, egern og træet selv indgår i dette system. I jorden har træet forbindelse til svampe som forsyner træet med nødvendige stoffer for træets vækst. Til gengæld for svampen næring fra træet. Svampen forbinder også træet med med andre træer. Man har i skove fundet svampemycelium der dækker 10.000 af kvadrat kilometer. Svampen søger også for transport at energi og mineraller mellem forskellige arter.
På træets stamme og grene vokser mosser og laver som igen er hjemsted og mad for insekter. Og så er der insekter der suger næring direkte fra træet, som igen er næring for andre insekter og fugle. Sommerfuglelarver æder af træet, de bliver til sommerfugle, men også mad for andre insekter og fugle. Endelig sætter træer blomster og frugter som også er mad til dyr der lever på og i træet.
Har jeg så alt dette når jeg planter et træ? Nej ting tager tid, og det skal også være det rigtige træ. I dag vælger man tit træer som ikke har dansk ophav, måske fordi de bedre modstår insekter og sygdomme.
Alle disse ting i et træs økosystem er noget evolutionen har skabt siden istiden, og alting passer sammen. Så et fremmed træ passer ikke til den lokale fauna og svampekultur. Derfor gror de også tit dårligt, men ok de får ikke insektangreb. Men vi får heller ikke fugle og egerne eller sommerfugle.

Træet i økosystemet – økosystemet i træet:
Jo ældre træer hvor mere varieret er det økosystem, jo flere forskellige arter lever der på træet. Så når et træ bliver gammelt, får lidt råd, bliver hult, så er det et fantastisk økosystem. Som aldrig ville kunne erstattes med et nyplantet træ. Slet ikke i vores levetid.
Kan et trærødder tåle at blive flyttet?
Træer opfører sig stort set ens over og under jorden, og der er ca lige meget biomasse. Rodarealet dækker bare et større areal end toppen. Så at flytte et træ svarer til at save de store grene af, de kommer igen, men det tager noget tid. Tidligere anbefalede man at skære toppen tilbage så top op bund passede sammen. Det har man forladt, man skal bare sørge for at der er vand nok de første år. Sættes træet udsat for vinden kan det sikres med baduner og stolper.
