The Greatest Fight – the Fight for the Family!
Before the biggest fight of his life for his son Kai, Leif Kristiansen was sharing his excitement in 2017, for the start of a new vocation. A new vocation, driven by his love for children and adolescents.
Leif Kristiansen’s experience, his love for children and leadership qualities serve him very well for this position. Terese Kristiansen, Kai’s loving mother was so happy and supportive of her husband’s new beginning.
But, this is Norway, and using individuality, and being innovative, often pushes you out of the formed circles, the circles of “slaves to servitude and collectivism”. No one is allowed to get ahead in Norway, and if you look as though you are getting on your feet, and may be, going further than others (that’s dangerous), you will more than likely, be pulled back, and put in “your place”.
Why has Norway become such a frightening place for so many families to live in? The Norwegian approach is authoritarian, in a sense, that it demands “targeted” parents to be its idea of “perfect”, as a means to reach its own ideological goals. Norway not only wants obedience from its population, but also conversion to its ideology as well. When parents are encouraged to lie by Barnevernet, with the promise that everything will work out for the best, it is not good enough to just tell the truth to them.
Parents are expected to think that Norway’s Barnevernet “truth” and the reality of their ideology is the best, and the only way forward for society, is when Barnevernet’s belief system is accepted by everyone. It’s just not enough to obey the ideology, but to also wholeheartedly believe in it as well.
Berit Aarset, a Norwergian nurse, foster mother/grandmother, leader of Human Rights Alert – Norway (hra-n), wrote:
“Norwegian authorities have built up an image abroad that human rights (ECHR and UN conventions) are respected here in Norway. They have managed this by acting as peacemakers, fighting for human rights in other countries, investing millions in social welfare programmes (in reality, social order programmes) around the world, and awarding the Nobel Peace prize annually. At the same time, Norwegian authorities are causing children and families great harm through the way their child welfare system works in Norway. From the hundreds of cases we have witnessed, one characteristic is that everyone is expected to report everyone else to Barnevernet for the slightest of “misdemeanours”. This is very similar to how the Stasi operated in East Germany between 1949 to 1990.”
Gro Hillestad Thune, a Norwegian lawyer by profession, was a member of the European Commission of Human Rights for 16 years. She is regarded as Norway’s leading expert on human rights, and her name is recognised internationally. This excerpt in English, is from an article published on 14 Feb 2018, in Idag, a Norwegian Christian weekly newspaper, in Bergen:
“I want to encourage all parents who need help, not to contact the (Norwegian) child welfare services, until you get a whole new system, it’s so bad to predict what kind of treatment you will get.”
