Ok, just to clarify. I invited Elon and Mark to Denmark. All and any of my friends, are off cause more than welcome.

This is how I see friendship.

When I was a kid, I didn’t have an easy life. My mom was a single mom, my dad was not there anymore.

So we lived in a pretty poor neighborhood, and the friends available there were not of the highest quality.

So, there wasn’t much to learn from, trying to understand what was to be a good friend.

So I struggled, and started to get interested in philosophy. There weren’t much else to do, to be honest.

My mom did what she could to inspire me, so she gave me this wonderful book of a Norwegian philosopher that was heavily inspired by Aristotle.

To kind of cut to the essence of these brilliant thinkers, they had the point, that good friends are carried by good values. To be a good friend, you need to SHARE values. If your friendship is carried by a common idea or purpose, your friendship will be of the greatest kind.

So that is what I see in friendships, and it is also a path for international politics. Because international politics is essentially carried by the relationship between the leaders of the different countries. Some you are friends with, others not.

Like my friendship with Obama. Man, I like him. I admire him so much, he is amazing. So I go the extra mile, we share ideas, we try and make the world a better place.

We fought a lot of battles together.

So, maybe this is what we can learn from Aristotle. To be a good friend, you need to share values, and fight for those values together.

G-d bless the will to do good, think good thoughts, and do good actions.
