There is a correlation between Bodil and Kendrick.
Bodil Malmsten, possibly the greatest living author in Sweden today, is a militant mind. Her latest and last log book, “Och ett skepp med sju segel och femti kanoner ska försvinna med mig“, is to compare with the works of Montaigne and Chomsky, albeit on a very non-intellectual level; her words on how Vattenfall has failed Sweden in more than one way is a one-way battle.
On the flipside, I was recently tipped off about a video that shows how adversity can turn into happiness and companionship.
That’s known rapper Kendrick Lamar, who at a recent gig turned against a guy who he claims stood with his arms crossed behind him, seemingly dissing Lamar’s act. So Lamar let the guy have the mic. And what turned from a lot of crowd booing…just watch the video. If you can’t stand waiting, go to the 02:20 mark and watch it explode.
End point being…? Well, if you’ve got a slingshot, let it fly; if you disagree, make your mark. You don’t have to be an ass about it, but do as Bodil and Kendrick do: put your action where your mouth is.
