    Noget genereliserende, men ikke uden et vis sandhedsindhold, kan man sige at vi er et jævnt folk med en indbygget foragt for al oppustethed, arrogance, selvgodhed og selvretfærdighed. Vi ynder også at angribe disse ting så snart vi får øje på dem, hvadenten det er hos os selv eller hos andre, men selvom ordene måske nok kan virke skarpe, så foregår det nu som oftest på en for os at se kærlig måde; med et smil på læben og et glimt i øjet.
    ...hehe.

    Globalisation is EVIL it is designed as a ultra capitalist plot to reduce you to $ as Iceland once pure now in trouble nation found out.

    Tell the Faroese Islands people to look to nations who have taken on globalisation and see how they have failed Purity and Preservation are imperative for survival
