Hiatus

Eksamenstress/frustrasjon. Mange interessante tilbakemeldinger som jeg nesten må komme tilbake til etter eksamen. Håper det er smør til alle, så kan vi smøre oss med tålmodighet.

  1. KOm over en bloggpost om hijab og bunad for et par dager siden. En bloggpost som fikk meg til å tenke på det å blande religiøse og nasjonale symboler.
    Mine bloggposter er gjerne uferdige tanker som ser veldig så ferdigtygde ut, iallfall denne. For i kveld hadde vi en interessant diskusjon med et par fra Iran som følte at de ble påtvunget Islam og et ensrettet tenkesett. En diskusjon som satte mine tanker om symboler inn i et videre perspektiv. Enda en gang.
    Se gjerne innom mine foreløpige tanker http://karavanseraiet.no/?p=2513

  2. I read your commendable debate with the Frp people. It illustrates or contrasts a rational appeal vs an emotional appeal. Frp uses the second technique effectively and that, to their credit, makes them the most modern political party in Norway. Modern political parties operate like businesses, exactly how a Ford motor company or a Coca Cola operates. The products are ideas and merchandises respectively.. They all employ marketing theories to reach their audiences. In their earlier stages, these organizations (businesses/political parties) used rational appeals and emphasized the functional part of their products/ideas. The Ford motor company sold a transport means and political organizations similarly were segmented along functions like workers’ parties, farmers’ parties, the bourgeoisie party, etc. As the psychology of marketing developed and modernized and so were the techniques available to businesses and political organizations.

    Frp is a neoliberal party which means that its goal is to reduce the state sector to the minimum (they said ‘we are the party that cuts taxes and levies’). They’re the first political party in Norway to learn that logical inconsistency in their messaging is actually a strength. This is actually in consistence with modern marketing theory. It is more about the emotional appeal than a logical appeal. Emotional appeal drives people into the shopping malls as well as to political ideas. How can you challenge this reality? By using the most modern marketing theories as it has been shown when dealing with such societal issues like smoking, antisemitism and other negative labels.

    Adam Curtis is a British journalist who has done excellent documentaries on these issues. They cover what in Norwegian is called ide´ historie (a long but interesting introduction to this topic):
