Countless people in Denmark look wide-eyed at the outcome of 20-year-old cases where alleged sexual abuse of women leads to dismissals of men.
Women and men have over time found each other, and sometimes the result has led to joint togetherness and other times the result was “well-yes”, that was not exactly the case!
But now it is common for those who have been together, after 20 years, to find out that it was not exactly the case, and now the case must be investigated further, and the presumptuous man obviously affected – not by a legal investigation, but by an inquiry to an employer, who is the only one who can really come after the man and dismiss him without trial.
The Dane must rightly wonder!

Asger Aamund and Donald Trump
Asger Aamund, yours in Berlingske Opinion 9 January is so much next to the reality that I and probably the majority of Berlingske well-informed readers know about.
So to bring you back to reality, I want to inform you that Donald Trump is a liar, narcissist, racist and corrupt, and that he does not take the oath he swore at his inauguration as president seriously. He has divided the United States and made every effort to isolate the country from important international treaties and allies. He has a mindset like an offended boy in 5th grade and is by no means a worthy representative of the office he has now held for four years. Trump is dangerous to democracy, the truth and the world.
The list could easily be made longer. That you continue to call the man a good Democrat probably says more about you and your mindset, and about the reality that you have moved further and further away from in recent years.

Vermund’s community spirit
Pernille Vermund must have drunk from the nightmare when she believes that the public sector must be slimmed down after the corona crisis. It is the private sector that these days sucks money out of the treasury in the form of aid packages for services that no one benefits from. And peace be with it. We want to keep at least part of the private sector.
Since Bjarne Corydon (yes, in fact before) the public sector has been subject to foolish savings with deterioration as a result. Who is it that keeps Denmark going these days? It’s nurses, it’s educators, it’s school teachers, it’s the police. These are public employees… Yes, with the exception of the public employee named Pernille Vermund. She probably does not do much other than gamble with the Danish social contract. Should she just hear the word of the year again? “Common sense”.

There is nothing strange in the fact that the divorce rate is high and has been so with certain fluctuations over a number of years. This is simply because marriage is not considered to have value. Young people have understood the message of the time when they declare, “It is greater to have a child than to be married.” And there are many couples who reject marriage by saying, “That paper means nothing.” A very precise characteristic that has to do with the fact that we live in a time where the individual is put above the community.
Therefore, one does not ask about what one can do for one’s marriage, but what one can do for oneself. You also do not ask about what you can contribute, but have a sure eye for what is wrong with the other. The commitment in the love affair has simply lost its significance, and this has been the case since the early 1970s. It is the relationships with the children that are crucial: the children’s emotional life and one’s own gut feelings are what it’s all about. And while you feel and feel, you forget the life you could have and forget to do something that can make you feel that you have a partner.
So when the divorce rate rises in a time of coronary restrictions, how is that to be understood? Is there a connection to the closure of society? Or is it simply due to frustration at not being able to see your office wife because you have to work from home?
