The word "Statist" of course means being for more more power to the State, being for Statism, but...
in Swedish the word "statist" is the word for being "an extra" in a movie or at a theatre show,
kind of like how Statists strive to make us extras in our own lives.
Just outside the left of one of these shots (probably the second) of Ingmar Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" is me atop my mother's shoulders, after having ruined several takes as a 5 year old extra for staring into the camera in the SVT basement.
I bought a remote controlled car for the first salary of my life. It was yellow with black stripes from front to back.
So technically, I was an ultra-leftist non-statist back then too... (pun)?
