Relative to the Swedish Riots …

MFM Osborne reports in his biographical notes which I have the pleasure of reading, that it is much easier for an American to get published in a European Journal than an American one. His paper on the migratory behavior of salmon could not find a publisher in the US but it was gladly received in the Journal of Experimental Biology in England. Similarly for his seminal work on the flapping behavior of insects, and browning motion in stock prices. One believes it is part of a general tendency for the grass to be greener on the other side of the street. We are all taught to defer at once to those of discordant belief, especially if they believe in the idea that has the world in its grip, i.e. that the pursuit of happiness should be punished by death, or eschewed for a better world above. However, when we see it on the other side of the street, we are free to note it but have to cover it up and excuse it here, as in the confession of the three murders by the brothers before the bombing. 

Gibbons Burke writes: 

"But Jesus said to them: 'A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.'" [Matthew 13:57]
