I've been thinking about the situation here in Sweden recently, and it's not as democratic as you might have been lead to believe. For instance, the income of the people making the least money has been cut thanks to our new government, who promised that everyone would get more money. Of course this does not affect them, they don't live like the poorest, and probably never has either. They fact is that the upper middle class is ruling this country, it might be right if the majority of the population were middle class, but that is of course not the case. There is always a huge mix of people from different parts of society, and as long as a majority of people from the same place in society rules, the country they rule is not a democracy. It's sad to think about those that could have become great leaders and role-models, but were so put of by the current political system that they ended up working in factories, wondering what happened to all their dreams and plans for the future. Those that could have written great novels, and made beautiful pieces of art if they only had finished their education. Now stuck dead end jobs, or not even having a job at all. having to struggle to even get food for the day. Is this good, is it right? Is it what we are supposed to be, people that ended up wrong because of glitches? Or is it the individuals fault? Not a chance, the individual is shaped by it's surrounding, mostly your parents, though I'm not talking about Freud or anything, it's just the simple fact that you are influenced a lot by your parents opinions and limitations. You, as well as everyone else is a part of a system that creates people that are getting more and more similar to each other. The technique of cloning has already been implemented on our society, it's a system designed to make us easier to manipulate, so that we stop to question, stop thinking about what's going on in the world around us. Our thoughts are drowned in the flow of information, in the assault of commercials and tv-shows. We are slowly drowning in others manufactured opinions, and do not even realize it ourselves.


About Parkour

I want to tell you a bit about what Parkour is, from my point of view. It is a efficient way of moving through the environment of course, but it is also a lot more that that. I see it as a way to get to know myself both mentally and physically, to learn what i can do with my body and mind, and realize that i am much more capable than i thought yesterday. What is important is not to be the best, it is to be as good as you yourself can be. There would be no point in trying to be better than anyone, because we are all different and we all have to adapt to our own bodys. Therefore there are no two tracuers alike, and it is also why new ways of moving can be invented, because we have to adapt to ourselves and our environment. And since everything keeps changing, we ourselves must also keep adapting to new conditions, be they physical, mental or environmental. The reasons for practicing parkour can be many, and are different from tracuer to tracuer. But there is one thing that makes them more or less the same. We train for our own sake, not to become rich or famous, to get attention or anything like that. What we do is, in my opinion, is almost a kind of physical meditation. We explore the world around us, and with it, the world within us. We expand our knowledge of ourselves, and in that way understands everything a little better.
