(4) Fritt Folk, Oslo, 8.11. An article by Kristen Gundelach, entitled "What is sabotage?" states that everyone hiding his natural talents is a saboteur.
A strong porter letting a heavy, valuable work of art fall down the stairs, saying that he cannot manage to carry it, commits deliberate sabotage. It is his duty to show himself as strong as he really is.
Sabotage also means betraying one's God-given health, shirking work, or going to bed with a slight cold.
The worst sabotage in the New Europe is hiding one's natural talent when one holds a salaried or lucrative post in the community, for example, eloquent and prolific professor of history and other speakers and writers who have hitherto been figuring in the foreground of our intellectual life, and certain journalists who were formerly talented writers and communicated enthusiasm for the public.
What has become of them? They have suddenly become silent. They are still on the spot, the spot which witnessed the previous cries and which has now become the arena where energetic men are working to build the new Norway. Norway demands that those who are strong must be strong without sabotage.
Those who write must not stunt their talents and write with colourless loyalty, and the loud-voiced speakers for former days must use their voices as formerly and use them with force because everyone who does not help the build up the new Norway, is a saboteur.
As for those persons who have hitherto had the ear of the people, the crime is still greater. They are traitors like their masters, the robber gang in London, stealing gold from Norway's bank.
