Why statistics mislead information about the spread of the covid-19 virus

The Covid-19 pandemic has become evident to how statistics can change from being worthless to being a truth-bearer. In Sweden, it has been used to demonstrate how an entire population is being threatned, illustrated with numbers of deaths due to Covid-19 (the statistics is questionable as Covid-19 in the majority of the deaths was not the cause but a contributing cause).

What is the foundation of our constitution?

In mid-April 2013 I had lunch with an enthusiastic law student from Stockholm University who expressed the view that Sweden is not a democracy or at least not a fair one.

She expressed her constitutional opinion ingeniously: our constitution is rewritten according to the ways we live; we do not live according to how it is written.

Mastering Pandora’s box

I'm a human being and as such I'm just as naive as most other humans, particulary up until just recently in the area of securing my digital life. Any cybersecurity expert will tell you of all the trails you leave behind using your cellphone, tablet or computer - even the footprint you make by setting up your wifi connection at home or using your email at work. Most of us aren’t trained to use these equipments in a secure fashion. That’s a fact.
