Let us say that it was radiantly beautiful, the theoretical day in the 1880s when someone's traveling the world came to an end. Let us say that the sun played in the waves beating against the quay, to the trade and the clamour stirred up the dust on the cobblestones, and the smell of the city, finally the city, and to our traveler felt again and thrived. Let us say that this, our theoretical key person searched for one serving and filled with eagerness to tell of her experiences in the foreign country settled down in the hose with some townsfolk.
as publikfriar. Human communication is covered by the illustrative storytelling: the anecdotes, stories, or references that smoothly and comfortably describes our attitudes and assertions. We may imagine that our traveller heard such a festive little story on his journey, and now want to retell it. For the reason that I painted up this picture is that I think I know that anyone against the late 1800s, made just such a trip.
It is then precisely the 1880s heard about a small local newspaper in Vimmerby or elsewhere in the province of Småland, Blekinge or Skåne as förorättat written that they ”already two times, and have warned mr Bismarck”, and that järnkanslern still not listened. Anecdote is usually used against småpåvar issuing the consent bulls, and it can be found everywhere today. Often you also yourself admit that the story is probably more of a myth than truth, for lokaltidningsledaren where the warning is issued is nowhere to be found.
running through american history. In a poem published in this journal in 1979, used the figure in order to encourage more local criticism of the Nato forces. In a riksdagsdebatt 1958 stated folkpartisten Sven Ohlon that Sweden could not expect to influence ”the international press and the various states ' department of state”, and likened the government at the småländske tidningsredaktören. ”Yes, mr Ohlon, it had been quite sensible of the Bismarck to listen to the voice from Småland, sweden”, said prime minister Tage Erlander. In the Kristianstad County Journal in 1928, is the social democrat Gustav Möller's hopes for a european disarmament (not a bad idea, in hindsight) as likened to the editor – or, ”a utrikesmedarbetare in a Göteborgstidning”, as it was called then.
There is something distinctly Swedish over the story. The editor is a classic medium size dog with a big dog attitude, and had today been able to be a Swedish Nyheter24-debater with the address to Donald Trump. In Sweden, we are big enough in the mind to make such a claim, and distant enough that they should appear to be ridiculous. Yes, except it seems to actually only circulate on the other side of the earth.
banished to such a läktarplats the face of world politics, which is that, apparently, the same self-important newspaper editor. But where is the tsar of Russia, or the emperor of Germany, he warns. ”We Warn the Tsar” rubriksatte 2017 australian Spectator, and referred to something as the tasmanian newspaper The Mercury would have published in 1892.
the Historian Marion Diamond at the University of Queensland has tracked a few years ago the story in the archive that are all over australian and new zealand newspapers, and discovered that it was a common insult in the 1890s. The australians ran with the New Zeeländarna, which in turn pulled the at the irish's expense.
It is the mirror, that the question of the truth of a legend, but for all part: Diamond actually do find a English newspaper, Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper, which, in 1873, warns the tsar to keep your fingers away from Uzbekistan. More exciting is that in Sweden, perhaps started as a joke.
in 1881 häcklas the famous publicist Axel Krook. In the vignette Magnificent words attributed to Krook sarcastically quote, ”We have warned him (Bismarck), now he may blame themselves, myself”. Apparently, it was considered on Glunten that Krook was an inflated type, and created a myth that still persists today.
But enough is the stories to each other as to have been able to occur in different places. Maybe have the Diamond right in to the story if the editor who warned the statesman also been found in the Uk, but where is the evidence still get in comparison with in Sweden and in Australia and New Zealand.
may we once again think of us the vittbereste but the theoretical person who once, on a sunny day, stepped in the country either here or there, and recounted what he heard either there or here. And so, the story root and fortbildade itself in generation after generation, right up to today. A story is nothing without its audience. And it was here and on the other side of the earth just as this story found its.
