Current government-led interventions threaten our future, but fortunately, resistance is growing.

Summary: Our world’s freedom and democracy is threatened by the government-led interventions restricting our freedom of assembly and movement. Citizens are pressured into isolation, quarantines, lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccines. Fortunately, the resistance to government interventions is growing, and multiple organisations across the world are fighting against government tyranny for freedom and democracy.

World freedom under serious pressure

We are now approaching two years of government-led interventions that restrict our freedom of assembly and movement through isolation, quarantine, multiple lockdowns, and mask mandates and there is now clear irrefutable evidence of great harm and absolutely no evidence of any benefit.

Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings, and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.

With regards to vaccines, there is increasing pressure from governments around the world pressuring citizens to get vaccinated against covid. I am pro vaccines, but I believe in freedom of choice. This is also called informed consent. Informed consent is the process by which a fully informed citizen can participate in choices about her/his healthcare. It originates from the legal and ethical right the citizen has to direct what happens to her/his body and from the ethical duty of the physician to involve the citizen in her/his healthcare. What the governments around the world are currently doing is not only unethical, it is also illegal as it conflicts with all human rights and regulations.

When it comes to covid vaccines for children I say full STOP. There is no evidence that children of all ages benefit from such a vaccine. All points towards that natural immunity is the best protection against a coronavirus infection. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of pressure on children and young people to take the vaccine against COVID-19, including being tested, and being forced to provide information about health conditions for school or in another context.

Also, children are not required, by law, to show documentation (negative test). Children have freedom of choice when it comes to vaccines and testing. If you want to send a letter to your children’s school documenting this, you can find the attached school letter document (in Danish) which is constructed by Legal base. You can also find this letter of consent (in Danish).

If you don’t watch the news, you are uninformed. If you watch the news you are misinformed.

Another problem threatening freedom of speech is that the media is not portraying the truth. Global media is misinforming and you need to search for alternative media to find the truth. Also, media censoring has become a great problem. Large tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Linked-In, etc. are removing content not allowing freedom of speech. This is a direct violation of freedom of speech.

Hope for a bright future

Fortunately, the resistance to government interventions is growing steadily and you can find more and more declarations signed by ordinary citizens, medical & public health scientists, and medical practitioners. See some below – these are also great sources of information.

Global Covid Summit is the product of an international alliance of doctors and scientists, and currently backed by 1,700 doctors and scientists.The regulation is clear. We all have human rights when it comes to freedom! There are the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights, the Nuremberg Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UNESCO Universal Declaration of Human Rights, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Grundloven, etc.

We all need to protect our human rights. We cannot accept that a single one of the above is overridden. We all have the freedom to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ when it comes to government restrictions.

It seems as if we are fast moving into a totalitarian regime with very powerful State control. My opinion is that the State should be there for you and not the other way around.

When you know everything about your government, that is democracy. When the government knows everything about you, that is tyranny.

My fear is that if we do not fight the tyranny, I fear for our generation and the next generation’s future. I would like a future of true democracy where there is freedom of choice. A world where we respect each other guard’s freedom of speech, and freedom of choice.

5 key learnings in starting a company – and how these learnings can be applied in the corporate world

Some years ago, I decided to exit the corporate world (at least for a while) for trying out something I have thought about for a long long time. Why? Because I have always had an entrepreneurial mindset having dreams about starting for myself. I had an idea of starting a beverage company in Denmark focusing on launching a range of cold-brewed coffee and tea products in Denmark. After a thorough market study, I could see an opportunity for this kind of products in Denmark.

So, I left my job in the corporate world and threw myself into it on day 1. I set a “Big Hairy Audacious Goal” (Jim Collins book: Built to Last) of having the first beverages on the market within 3 months. I knew this was a very ambitious target, but I believe in setting ambitious goals to stimulate progress. I also calculated a burn-rate so I knew exactly how long I could go on without an income.

I found a good partner which I joined forces with and we co-founded the business together. The first products were produced within three months of intense work – a first major milestone reached! Even harder work followed finding partners on the sales side. Yet, we were fortunate enough to quickly have customers onboard and sales started to materialize. 

After 2 years of entrepreneurship, I decided to re-enter the corporate world, hence, the startup is today run by other people. . Yet, I have priceless experiences in entrepreneurship which I am now bringing into my work and private life going forward.

Here are my top 5 key learnings on entrepreneurship which you can be inspired from whether you are a self-employed entrepreneur or a corporate entrepreneur:

  1. Cultivate your creativity: Being in a corporate world can put constraints on creativity. You navigate in an organization with lots of stakeholders which can slow down progress and decisions. Being a self-employed entrepreneur stimulated my creative thinking opening up a whole new dimension of ideas and new ways of seeing things. You basically start with a blank sheet of paper and design value chains, visions, strategies, etc. In your workplace, ensure that you set off time for creative thinking and reflections so you can lift your deliverables to higher levels. I call this ‘white space’. Once in a while get out of the office, change the work scene, mingle with people you have not mingled with before, and ensure you educate yourself on a continuous basis
  2. Fail fast: Try things out and launch ideas that are not perfect around the edges. Share ideas and thoughts with your surroundings. It will strengthen your position as a thought leader. It is okay that some ideas fail. Actually, you need to fail on some ideas in order to learn and prosper. More and more major Danish companies are increasingly encouraging their employees to have a more agile mindset and try out things. All in all in response to fast-changing markets, customer needs, etc. New ways of thinking are promoted and making mistakes is necessary in order for companies and individuals to grow.
  3. Think BIG: All behavior is believe-driven. Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” I learned that if you believe you can do whatever you envision. I think many Danish companies could be more ambitious and daring in their strategies, targets, and visions. Be courageous and have big goals and dreams. Also, visualize your goals, talk about them as they have been accomplished. You will be surprised how powerful the mind is when you imagine the goals have been reached.
  4. Structured activity planning: Being an entrepreneur required discipline and planning in order to beat procrastination and get the progress needed. Print out a yearly calendar and write yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals. Having that you can define activities each day so you reach your goals. An effective and very successful method to reach your goals.
  5. Network with the right people: Gather stimuli and share ideas to get other perspectives or to lift ideas to the next level. I learned that criticism is good as it shows interest and will give you insights to improve your products or services. However, avoid the naysayers as they can be draining your energy. Network with people who you feel gives you something and remember to give back. The network is about helping each other out. Pay it forward.

Will I recommend everyone to try out entrepreneurship? No. It requires lots of work, sacrifices, and time. But if you as me felt an urge to test out entrepreneurship, I strongly recommend that you go for it. You can always bounce back to the corporate world. Actually, the corporate world will see this as an advancement to your CV. It shows initiative and drive!
