: I am from Great Falls, MT. Lars is looked upon as a wonder of Europe in our news papers every few months. Nothing you have said has appeared in our News Papers, I have not recieved any proof
: from you as of yet. He is often quoted in The Montana Beel. I'm not aware of anything bad. So until you can show me. I'll have to look upon your words as a form of harrasment.
What!! Is Lars looked upon as a "wonder of Europe" in your newspapers?? ARGH, that's bad news! I didn't know he was that famous abroad, cause in Sweden everybody look on him as the major village idiot of this nation. ..."the wonder of Europe"...hm... you have no high thoughts of old Europe, have you? Well it's sad, sad in many ways. The tourists destroy the nature and scare the endangered species away, and if Vilks is gaining PR that successfully in other countries it's bad news really. But nevermind, everything must come to an end, even nature.
And now that I know you're not swedish, I can also understand why you didn't immediately understand what I ment when I labeled Vilks "deranged". He is deranged, that's for sure, but he's not "dangerous" in any way. He's a peaceful old man with iron legs, but that's not really the point. The point is (from our point of view) that he violates our law, mock our politicians and build horrible monuments on an area where it is strictly forbidden even to pick a single flower. For what use? We gain nothing from this. He shows us that our politicians are incompetent, but we knew that already. The price for that demonstration is too high. The true art of nature is nature, not pseudo-intellectual works of "art", and if people that badly need a reason to walk out in the woods, they should stay at home. That's my oppinion at least. .......and besides, it's bad "art" too.
