True comradeship can only be forged in conflict. I have said this before, and I still believe it is true. When things go wrong the cowards and traitors will scatter, run away and hide, and leave you to fight the enemies alone. We see this in war, but we also see this in other types of conflict; verbal disputes, fist fights and also legal persecutions. True comradeship is only forged when things go wrong and those who don’t run away to save their own skin are left to see and know that they can trust each other.
“Many have loved treason, none the traitor.” (European proverb)
This week Marie and I was in trouble; persecuted by the police for no good reason whatsoever, and also placed in the stocks and attacked viciously by the media. Some human beings out there, none of them our friends, joined in when the media wailing choir sang their songs of scorn, when they spewed out their hatred and spat upon us with their venomous tongues.
“An undeserved insult doesn’t bite much.” (European proverb)
So I am happy to tell that Marie and I, although we have certainly also seen some hostility the last week, have been overwhelmed by the support we have received. From family, from friends, from acquaintances, from complete strangers and even from individuals we have only admired from a distance before. We have seen so much courage and true comradeship in those around us. We are very touched by this and grateful, and we wish to express our gratitude to you all. We have received literally hundreds of mails, with everything from offers of economic assistance to moral support. We are also very encouraged by the fact that so many who were not our friends before have stood up for us and thrown themselves into the line of fire, so to speak, when the temperature was at its highest, for our protection; demanding from us only that they shall be allowed to fight for justice and morality alongside us. Thank you all, very much.
“One should go invited to a friend with good fortune, but uninvited if he is has problems.” (European proverb)
To those who offer us economic aid, or who suggest we open up for others to donate money to us, I will say thank you very much, but no thank you. You are very kind and we appreciate your thought immensely. We have of course suffered economically from this, but we wish to carry this burden alone. The burden of knowing that others will be burdened by us is worse to carry than the burden of the economic loss itself. We think and we hope that we will be able to manage.
“From harm you grow wise, but not rich.” (European proverb)
To those who have ordered the ForeBears DVD I have been asked by my wife to tell that your orders will be processed, but it will take more time than usual, because of our situation right now. She has received an extreme amount of orders, much more than usual, but at the same time we have a house to tidy and clean and a door to repair after the police raid. We are walking with shoes on inside, because there are tiny glass fragments everywhere, even upstairs, and even after we have vacuumed several times. Because of the siege by journalists we have also been unable to comfortably remove the rubble and piles of glass from our living room. We hope to get it all done before the return of our children.
“Rather suffer for the truth than be rewarded for lies.” (European proverb)
Thankfully, because we are survivalists we have not lacked any food, drinking water or anything else either, and had the choice not to expose ourselves to the individuals with cameras outside, and I wish to use this as an example of how important it is to be prepared for any and every type of difficult situations that might occur. If you are a survivalist you will suffer less, and some times not at all, in situations that would be very difficult for those who are not. Not everything you have to survive is of classical nature or possible to predict.
“In calm water every ship has a good captain.” (European proverb)
Thank you all again very much for your support. We will try to get back to each and every one of you personally, but we hope you understand if we are unable to, or at least no able to very soon.
“We have not inherited Europe from our ancestors; we have borrowed it from our children.” (European proverb)
