Maybe, Katja, this can explain much of your experience in Denmark...

all good wishes to you - may your future be a fabulous one, much as you envision it -

Were I not of a libertarian mindset, I would make this book mandatory reading in school, teachers included, for all current politicians and bureaucrats, for all parents and would be parents... in short for all.

Alas, coercion is not my style, thus, all I can do is encourage... no, implore you to read

I will go so far as to consider it one of the most important books to understand the current political scene and trends, and social and economical upheavals especially in the Western world.
This is not a book only about Denmark!

It is an easy and quick read, though, I hope as impressing to you as it is to me.

from the blurb
“ Manipulism and the Weapon of Guilt: Collectivism Exposed
is the utmost controversial exposé and carefully detailed description of the awful emotional mind game that facilitates communism, socialism, and social-liberalism, known as collectivism.

The book exposes Denmark, the supposed happiest nation on earth, for what it truly is: collectivism's biggest propaganda hoax. Danish author Mikkel Clair Nissen tells the hidden facts and realities of life in Denmark’s democratic-socialism that they never want you to know. “

Here is what I think of it

The current political agendas in the West seem to ever more speedily drive us toward a mix of socialism, fascism, oligarchy, liberalism (as in current meaning, not classical), cloaked in facades of pretend democracy, ultimately to resolve in the long, even publicly announced global one-world government.

Economies in crisis fabricated by mainstream economists who tow the politically-expedient agenda line; wars between West and East fabricated by banker-industrialist bedfellows and enabled by bought politicians; global environmental problems regulated into existence by special-interest industry protection from accountability and responsibility by, again, bought politicians;
social upheaval incited and instigated by fear mongers, war mongers, race biters, gender haters, class-warfare cultural Marxists (make sure to read up on that one!), envy inciters;
all propagandized and promoted by the mainstream media tool, bought and infiltrated by agents of the rulers behind the scenes.

As this drive toward the engineering of a society of an un-thinking servile citizenry has clearly been speeding up through the recent couple of decades (though going on for a good hundred years with clear intention), it is also, largely and gratefully due to the internet, becoming more apparent to ever more people.

Many have used the term collectivism to describe the trend society is moving toward. Certainly daily new regulations, laws, and policy making confirm the term as appropriate.

Political correctness, banning and criminalization of what for all evolution have been normal and natural activities of human life, state interference into ever more private aspects of our lives, equalitarianism with the goal of not giving equality before the law but of making everybody the same, serve not to enhance human individuality and responsibility, but lead to censorship of the mind, to stifling of creativity, and to loss of productive incentive in life.

It is imperative for the survival of the human spirit to recognize and understand whence from and how this collectivist beast operates amongst our midst; how it is able to prey, feed, and grow upon people all around us.
If we do not, the future of human society may very well become one of intellectually and morally zombiefied pseudo human beings.

Mikkel Claire Nissen leads us in well thought out sequence and with astute detail through the psyche of the collectivist mind; its make up, its roots, its manifestations in how it affects other people’s lives and society, culture, and morality as a whole.
His recounts of many real-life examples of personal encounters with friends, bureaucrats, foreigners, with the social realities in daily life, policies, statistics, make reading this book almost like a hands-on manual.

With this awareness, the collectivist mindset can be recognized in daily life, in conversations, in school curricula, in interviews with bureaucrats, speeches by politicians, Hollywood movies, TV shows...

Once you know the (so predictable) words and behaviours to look for, it becomes easier to disarm the illusionary weapons of the collectivist, for he has none that are based in reality.

Make sure to read to the end, the plot gets better and clearer as the chapters progress towards the practical how-to of life with collectivists amongst us.

Although I might consider myself having been sensitive to collectivist propaganda before reading this book, I find myself fascinated by Nissen’s in depth expose and his providing the tools we can use to face the socialist-collectivist mindset in our daily dealings.

After all, is it not one of the greatest tasks not only libertarians but all who desire freedom face, to clarify and expose the fallacies of the imposition of socialist-collectivist thought upon humankind

Silhouettes, especially of people, apparently never fail to attract a photographer's attention...
combine it with a somewhat derelict urban setting, and.. who, with a camera in hand, would pass it by

Fabulous - can't wait to add this tool to my kit - ... well... gotta  get the knives, still, too...  :-)
but even without having a Schrade, yet, with all the videos by Schrade itself, as well as all the reviews, it is obvious to me that I'll be having more than one !

Love the shape-curve and tip of the blade... looks perfect for delicate slicing/feathering; solid spine for batoning, 1095 steel, crusher, lanyard hole, ... plenty to like about this one - as about all the other Schrade's in any case   :-)  !

Ok - as I am finally compiling my first-time collection of items for survival / bushcraft,, I have been watching plenty, as in lots of plenty, reviews and recommendations for such knives... add to that plenty comments and notes from users of Schrade knives...   and now I want to have almost every Schrade knife that I watched reviews on... !
Well... even just having one would be a fabulous item as the foundation for a survival kit !

Anyone have any experience ordering from amazon to ship such a knife into Canada?

Thanks muchly, for the quality work
