Norway taps into the Black Gold-Reserve, Celebrates National day and Record Eurovision Conquest

Norway spends more than a billion more money on countering the financial crisis which some capitalist douche-bags started “because it is fun to make the global human civilization suffer”, presumably. The most aggressive budget in 30 years. So, it’s not really news because it’s happened before, but economy is an ongoing process that have effects stretching over decades and millenia. And it’s not really news because it only rose from an original 13 billions, which was the news-worthy bit, to 14 billions.

Relatively speaking, any definition is subjective. Just like music.

Norway just won the Eurovision Song contest with the most points any song has ever gotten in the history of the competition. Even though countries often vote for neighbours and other countries they like, this song was good enough to receive a common liking. A potential step towards both Europeanism and mutual acceptance.

Also, May 17th is the day in 1814 when Norway declared to be an independent nation. It’s funny how nationalism arises within geographic borders, regardless of the fact that so many different people are grouped together as if they were all identical. Or, as in the case of Kurds, who are divided by the borders of Iraq, Iran and Turkey, without a nation of their own. Do like Israel and ship around the monkeys in diaspora, far away from their geographic origin?

When it comes to perspectives I just read the words Somali diaspora, realizing yet another example of the same kind of history as in so many other places and times on earth. Monkey civilization – it’s not paradoxical, it’s just a bit funny to think we’re monkeys with computers.
