Danish Cultural Imperialism Invades Greenland
In 2007 the extreme right populist party - The Danish Peoples Party - 
is aggresively attackng Greenland for laying claims to its own natural resources! Greenland is in complete compliance with international law for decolonizing former colonies while The Danish Peoples party which the governement is dependent upon for survival is reviving outdated imperialistic attitudes 

Pedophilia and an Ongoing Cultural Clash in Present Day Greenland

- Especially in Greenland´s Capital Nuuk - formerly called Good Hope
- The Capital of Greenland has now finally been given an indigenous Inuit name: Nuuk

- Greenland is a former Danish colony, today with extended self rule

The media in Denmark maintains that up to 30 children in Nuuk have been sexually abused - in a country that is still part of the Danish Kingdom despite extended self rule. Two men, one of whom has committed suicide, are allegedly the sole “perpetrators”.
A Danish national newspaper Politiken has (Sunday the 18th of June 2006) run a series on these Greenland children and two men. The 19th of June I sent them my commentary on this issue along with an anthropological illustration of a Greenland mother and child, plus a nursery song. Here is what I sent the newspaper:

Pedophilia and Cultural Clash in Nuuk, capital of Greenland
by Troels Peter Schmidt, cultural activist, author and journalist

[The national newspaper]
Politiken wrote the 18th of June 2006:
"In Greenland one person out of every 629 inhabitants is charged with sexual abuse. In Denmark the eqivalent figure is one out of every 23.348 Danes." The article does not unequvically point to any single cause and there probably isn´t any such singular explanation. Maybe the cause is not exclusively to be explained as stemming from poverty and abuse in general, but has deeper roots and probably can also be seen as a clash of cultures.

[To see the anthropological sketch I´ve sent the newspaper, you may click on the following link: ]

The sketch depicts a mother and a child expressing love in play, illustrated by the Greenlander Paul-Emile Victor and below, in the nursery song, with a child being orally caressed by an adult mother. This  could easily be seen by many Danes as an illicit act of incest. Both the sketch and the song are published in the anthropological work on Greenland culture: La Civilisation du Phoque. Legendes, rites et croyances des Eskimo d´Ammasalik. Editions Raymond Chabaud, Bayonne, by Paul-Emile Victor and Joölle Robert-Lamblin. The work was reviewed in the magazine Research in Greenland / tusaat 4 / 94 by the Danish scientific book reviewer, Hans Chr. Gulloev, Dr. of ethnografic science, senior reasercher at the Danish Polar Center and employed by the Danish National Museums Etnografic Collection. Dr. Gulloev describes the daily life of the Greenlanders, as among other things, represented by the sketch above:

"I read the book as a repport bt Paul-Emile Victors Ammassalik and found that belief in the here and now is very strong and an important element in the stuggle for survivval. Belief in the here and now embraces the joy of life, love and caring for the next generation as illustrated in one of the childrens´ nursery songs by Victor (p. 194 og p. 199):

[The nursery song:]
You are like an old wooden bowl,
Like a simpel wooden bowl,
A wooden bowl one licks,
A wooden bowl one eats from.

The nursery song says in words what we see in the sketch: The illustration and the song shows how different Greenland culture was and to some extent still may be, from the Danish, in that an old traditional act as seen in the drawing and described in the poem is most certainly quite unacceptable to any sex abuse professionel. Irrespective of whether this culture is still widespread in Greenland or not it is my opinion that one can, with some certainty, conclude that this sketch and poem represents a more relaxed attitude towards sex in Greenland than in Denmark. Therefore, one may with good reason ask whether the Danish authorities maybe see more "sex abuse"  than actually exists. Does the inherited Danish authoritarian system itself, in Greenland, contribute more to the dissemination of the problem than to solving it? Is it possible that this is more a question of difference in cultures than a question of sex abuse with respect to the many alleged cases of pedophilia in Greenland? With so many more charges for sex abuse than in Denmatk? This aspect of the ”problem” is worth considering.

The Danish national nrewspaper Politiken did not publish my commentary above, but instead I´ve posted it here in English and in Danish onto The Danish Journalist Associations debate forum:
where  journalists and many others frequently pay a visit.
