This is a chilling wind that blows in the debate at the moment. I read, with rising fear, Annika Lillemets and Valter Mutts a proposal to have the effect of keeping our common heritage. To be the city's statues, only to be educational? We need to move away from the symbols of what has been a bad thing? They have not read Orwell?
once upon A time I wrote a bad thesis if Riksdagsjubileet in 1935, while the king and the parliament, with The lead, and took the train to the town of Arboga, in order to, for the unveiling of Carl eldh's Southern statue. The best thing about the whole uppsatsprojektet was the fact that I was reading Magnus Rodells of the book, ”To breathe of a nation, statyinvigningar and nationsformering in Sweden in the mid-1800s in the middle”. It's all about the nationalistic spirit, the british institute, the civil mumbo-jumbo, and the masses of the people, who were assembled at the various statyinvigningar that were common across the whole of Europe by then.
Know the story, but to keep up with
It was a celebratory event. It seems even that is a bit ridiculous. Full of pompous gravity, pretentious speeches, and taking part in them. The 1800's was (among other things) for a period of time of the ordensband, so, a huge mustache, and the spirit of nationalism.
so Why should it stop at the nedhackade the statues this time? It has never done before.
But it was there. Is this it? Maybe this is the Stockholm kungastatyer ignored by the vast majority? I don't know. They have not been forgotten by me. I have to search for them when I have a chance to visit it. You can, if you make the effort, feel to the mid-1800s a burning desire to create a nation with an (imaginary) rich history by just staying in the statyernas close. I can understand that, but to keep up with, if you know what I'm talking about. I have one head, and will find it possible to keep a number of things at the same time.
To the great wall of china is also to be demolished?
in Stockholm, goes back in the 1700's, 1600's, 1500's speech... All that is left of the other, layer upon layer. It's easy if you want to walk in the past. To stand up in the face of the old things, like the many others before you, and the feel of her own delicate livslåga flutter is essential for almost anyone who has ever been affected by a concern for the past. With a history in the industry, which, by the way, much is monumental. The monuments of stone and bronze, the standing of the leaders who, in retrospect, it does not always appear to be as a whole adequately enlightened with regards to diversity and social justice.
We have been to the pyramids, the churches, the bridges, the towers, the triumfbågarna, viaducts, the Colosseum, the great wall of china and the statue. Their ursprungsintention reason enough for us to begin to unravel, then it is probably best to take the time, and we have a huge amount of work to be done.
don't be disappointed in the story
But, of course, it is anachronistic nonsense. Risk of those who travelled to the national monuments to be a knock-on effect to his spirit in us? Don't think so. Each time, his concerns, his character, his struggles, his ”wind”. The old monuments will not be removing your contemporary preferences of the stroke. Would we suddenly become sensitive to it's heritage? What does that say about us?
Nay, to be angry and disappointed, the story is not good enough. We should be careful not to tear, and the making of our history, in order to illustrate our contemporary sensibilities. It is actually to change all of the time. We have the right to knock over the bottom of the things that has stood for many hundreds of years from now? Instead, we should look backwards in order to try to understand ourselves and the world we live in in order to avoid the risk to make old mistakes. Then, you have to take the evil with the good.
and Finally, why would it stop at the nedhackade the statues this time? It has never done before. < / span> < / span>
