Dear Cabinet and Citizens of Ladonia
In this years national standardized test in Swedish for third grade gymnasie-students (running this week), a press cutting from the Berlingske Tidende 14.1.1998 is used as text material for testing the students understanding of other Scandinavian languages (in this case Danish). The article tells the reader about Ladonia - The newest and smallest neighbor of Denmark!
Thus the Swedish Board of Education is educating almost all Swedish teenagers born in 1980 about our beloved country! Well, I think that is a gesture of recognition.
One of my favourite gurus in life, Werner Erhard, has said something like 'What you say a sufficient number of times in the Universe, will eventually become the truth'. I think that is the way by which we will earn recognition by other nations on this planet - the eonatic way.
