Mention the war!

Menneskeliv er vigtigere end efterløn.

På Politikkens hjemmeside kan man stille Anders Fogh Rasmussen spørgsmål. Jeg har forsøgt med:

"Hvordan har du det personlingt - ikke politisk flom - men rent personligt, med at have været med til at støtte krigen i Irak?

Saddam Hussein er væltet. 35.000-650.000 (afhængigt af hvordan man regner det) mennesker er døde.

Ville du gerne gøre noget om, med det du nu i bakspejlet ved?"

Håber, han får det stillet. Tror, det er tilstrækkeligt sobert, relevant, interessant og kritisk til at de vil udvælge det. Jeg undlader med vilje at nævne at landet er plaget af sekterisk, religiøs og antivestlig vold, at terrorismen har fået bedre, ikke værre kår og rekrutteringsgrundlag m.v., så han ikke kan smyge sig udenom hovedspørgsmålet ved at betvivle hvor slemt det egentlig står til.

Nævn krigen! Jeg er virkelig skuffet over de store dele af den danske befolkning som tilsyneladende synes at skattelettelser eller efterløn er vigtigere end menneskeliv.

I am now studying communication and computer science at Roskilde University in Denmark. I am employed half time at Communication and occasionally teach the multimedia workshop at Communication and at Performance Design. I am a bachelor in educational studies. Before this, I completed "International Cultural Studies". I am quite busy and can only give you a few words about what I am doing at the moment. The best updated part of this home page is the photo gallery. The most important basic information is also here, so at least you can find my contact information. When I am not trying to study, I sail and play the piano. I sail in a X-79 owned by "Vikingerne" Vedbæk Sea Scouts, where I am a leader.

Sort of Web log (mainly things where I am away and difficult to get in touch with...)

I have just finished my bachelor project, a communication plan and usability test of a multimedia program we have produced. Last semester was a project about the use of information technology in learning. Before that a project about the recently introduced obligatory project work in Danish primary schools. The semester before it was a project about cultural and political spaces, a discursive investigation of how the space of immigrants is defined by discourse, mainly in the media, in Denmark. The semester before that, advertising and children, and the semester before about Aristotle, Plato and Descartes, or to be more precise, their views on the relationship between mind and body, and whether mind is material.
