After the terrorist attack in Brussels in 2016 a Swedish journalist posed the question of the political force in pottering about (“pyssel” in Swedish). Pottering about is often considered apolitical as it is used as a recreational activity, even though the outcome may be a functional object. The journalist proposed a revision of that idea since the terrorists had gone pottering about nails to create even more violent bombs, hurting as many people as possible.
