Peace with God

“Humanity resorts to sensible solutions when all other means are exhausted.” Abba Eban, once Israel’s foreign minister, uttered this resigned statement, accompanied by a sigh. We all want to make sensible choices after the genocides and death manifestations of the last decades: the Balkans, Rwanda-Burundi, the Middle East, and the terrorist attacks. Unixplorians strongly believe […]

The past becomes present at museums

Never has the past been so present. What once was comes alive in films or computer games that recreate what has disappeared with the utmost precision. History is preserved in the form of inner cities, restored to look forever as they might once have done. Or the same old songs are played repeatedly, from morning […]

Cancel culture does not belong in a museum but should be relegated to the dustbin of history.

In recent years, the museums of our macronational neighbors have been increasingly criticized for giving way to politicized exhibitions that convey knowledge.

Fifa and Western Superiority

This figure of thought that the West is morally inferior to everyone else because of its never-ending imperialism has only become more fanciful as it has been used. But Fifa is probably setting a new record here. Three thousand years. The attack on Troy took place roughly three thousand years ago. Up here in the […]

Blinded woke culture

Woke stands for an awakening that one has become aware of. It has its background in African-American slang and comes from the word awake. Much like in the days of revival, people were talking about someone who has been awakened, that is, someone who has woken up from their slumber about God and now understands […]

The decline of cancel culture?

The Swedish Film Institute removes its previous requirement to “integrate gender equality, diversity and children’s perspectives” into its activities. The changes are welcomed by several people in the film industry, among them film producer Lena Rehnberg, who has previously been critical of the Film Institute’s focus on gender issues. – This is big.

All Questions Matter!

In the wake of the protests following the murder of George Floyd, Someone recently asked us if we support Black Lives Matter. We just answered that we stand behind Human Rights.
