Is it too late for Sweden?

Article by Fred Elbel

Americans need only look to Europe to see the consequences of unconstrained mass immigration. Sweden is perhaps the country most transformed by unassimilable mass immigration, and its future doesn't look promising.

The late University of Chicago economist and Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman, stated that you can't have both large-scale immigration and a welfare state. Yet Sweden encourages unassimilable mass immigration, which causes migrants to become fully dependent on Sweden's generous welfare state.

Sweden is demonstrating its position as a "moral superpower' - what Garrett Hardin once called "conspicuous benevolence." Sadly, this posturing is resulting in the rapid demise of the nation.

Two recent articles reveal Sweden's the dire situation, and are worth reading to better understand how Sweden got to where it is today.

A Meaningful Milestone in Sweden?, by Bruce Bawer, Gatestone Institute, November 26, 2019:

  • Conditions in Sweden have deteriorated so drastically -- with everything from child care to elder care being deprived of funds that are instead being used to feed, clothe and house refugees, faux refugees, and other foreign freeloaders -- that many Norwegians worry, with good reason, about a massive spillover of social chaos, poverty and crime from a country with which it shares a thousand-mile-long border.

  • One is reminded, of course, of the indefensible way in which British authorities handled -- or refused to handle -- decades of child-rape cases in Rotherham, Rochdale and other cities throughout Britain. But in Sweden -- whose distinctive history of ideological conformity and self-image as a "moral superpower"... the readiness to deny unpleasant realities is even more widespread and deep-seated than in the U.K. and other Western European countries.

  • It was the Social Democrats and Moderates that created Sweden's current crisis and allowed it to endure and worsen and be considered beyond criticism....

  • The Sweden Democrats' triumph, then, may well be at once a genuine milestone in the advance of Swedish democracy and individualism and a mere turn in the road to ultimate cultural displacement.

... it was the Social Democrats and Moderates that created Sweden's current crisis and allowed it to endure and worsen and be considered beyond criticism...

One fears, however, that the Swedes have waited too long to stand up for themselves and that it is -- alas -- already far too late to forestall Sweden's transformation into a sharia state. The Sweden Democrats' triumph, then, may well be at once a genuine milestone in the advance of Swedish democracy and individualism and a mere turn in the road to ultimate cultural displacement.

The Swedish Unimind, by Sinclair Jenkins, American Renaissance, November 25, 2019:

... After two decades of eugenics, the Swedish state decided to promote itself abroad as a “moral superpower.”...

Despite polls indicating that a plurality of Swedish citizens did not want more immigrants, the state decided to purge the country of “superstition and ignorance”. In 1975, the Swedish Parliament wrote multiculturalism into law: “immigrants and minorities should decide for themselves to what extent they wished to be assimilated”...

Immigrants from Africa and the Middle East are four and three times, respectively, more likely to commit crimes than native-born Swedes...

The Unimind believes that dismantling ancient Swedish tradition of free speech is more important than protecting the people or grappling with the truth. Sweden can be likened to a dictatorship of National Public Radio producers....

Both articles reference the book:

Sweden's Dark Soul: The Unravelling of a Utopia, by Kajsa Norman, 2019:

"Although Sweden boasts the world's oldest free press, its history of homogeneity and social engineering has created a culture where few dare dissent from consensus, those who do are driven to extremes, and there is no place for outsiders--even those who conform."
