Those who can see the power criticism in The Other Newspaper are feeling redemption, hope and comfort by reading what we can deliver. Power Criticism? Yes! Are you familiar with the feeling of watching someone on television, thinking: If he had a richer and more vivid language and at the same time was more spontaneous he would have interrupted himself a long time ago and sat down in front of his television set with a box of popcorn. In one way or another, the norms in our global village in relation to who should have a lot of air-time and influence are completely nutty. You and I suffer from this. That unsophisticated people are treated as unreliable low-lifes without cores is a mistake that must be treated therapeutically. To treat us like bad company and – worse – bad listeners who just dash forward without giving space like cheap fireworks is a crime. We must meet this crime with the patience of humor and the good, rich life. We must meet it with knowledge. We must dare to know something about the human mind. Why meet it with stilted art? Why smash our children’s lives with ambitions of stilted art when what we create in an inspired minute is good enough to move mountains? The time is about to be ripe. In another 100 years, we have machines with a bigger outlook than ourselves. They will be completely without passion and be sloppily dressed. Many of them will only wear yellow clothes.
(The articles at The Other Newspaper are fictitious. The purpose of The Other Newspaper is to give the public a new, disturbing and humorous reflection of the way we consume news on traditional media and posts on the social media that make the recipient question whether the world needs to change and whether one can live online.)
