When I scroll in Fredrik Virtanen half penitent book ”Without mercy”, where he makes up with his youth, the nightlife and our time medial folkdomstolar, I am struck by the wide tolerance for tölpaktigt behaviour in his surroundings.
I aimed not at the criminal allegations which he was cleared of. But rather on the well-known svinigheter (sorry, pigs), as when he asks a group of women: ”Have you hormöte or can we beat us down?”
tvåtusentalets kokainstinna medieelit in the pubs around Stureplan in stockholm was such a jargon mayhap not the norm, but it is hardly either unique.
Certainly, the debt of the essence of the sinners themselves, but such priestly finger-wagging is rarely sufficient by itself far. For if it is something as research shows, it is the environment's role in the enabling of disagreeable behavior.
”Sexual harassment of women” (2018), the u.s. national academy of sciences report on harassment within the university community, pointed out that the individual factors that sexist attitude is certainly important, but: ”The single most important factors behind sexual harassment are organizational.”
Among the factors that promote the good behaviour of the mentioned models behave reasonably well, and that bad behavior lowers rather than raises even the status of the group. But they also highlight the problem with ”stjärnkulturen” in some institutions, where kreddiga academics with responsibility for major forskningsplånböcker can do what they want.
check back often during the metoo. Some institutions in tv and theatre became so economically dependent on a few beloved faces, that some of these became too big to fail, unreachable.
the Case of Michael Jackson shows how men with enough status and money can behave badly for decades. After the documentary film ”Neverland” (on SVT Play until 8/9), where the two men claim that they groomades to abuse by the pop star, asking if you even can wash the dishes to ”Billie Jean” with a good conscience.
I was in town, and my first köpeskiva was ”Dangerous”. The status I helped to give Jackson made it possible for him to invite children to his amusement park and sleep in their beds without consequences. The money I threw at him, he used then to buy out witnesses.
This double discharge recurs among the men of power, all the way up to tafsarpresident Trump.
not out of reach for as much power and money he had not. We have arranged society so that the money gives freedom, and with the over of other people's bodies.
It is perhaps not we who create the tölpiga men, but we are doing it not difficult for them. Our hearts and money spent best elsewhere.
