Sweden Has Turned the Corner

As someone based in Sweden, and half Swedish by birth, I have always known that my countrymen are given to a desperate longing for consensus and uniformity. Many will go to enormous lengths just to fit in. I watched in dismay as this collective neurosis gave way to mass delusion. With the full support of the mainstream media, national and local government, advertisers and a volunteer army of virtue-signallers ready to lambast anyone with even a mildly differing opinion, Sweden finally ceased to be a nation and became a cult. Doubters and dissenters were pilloried, often in public. This madness reached its apogee in the autumn of 2015, as hundreds of thousands of migrants poured into the country. Most everyone I know was falling all over themselves to send money, clothes and toys to the new arrivals. One or two even started refugee shelters, a profitable business in these parts.

    The realization of reality is a product of ones absence from it.

    I can honestly say, people my age, we Gen X ers, have seen more change and will see more change in our lifetimes than arguably any other generation since the Dawn of Civilization. When I was born, Canada had literally just became the first state to institute multi cultural. Every nation on this planet had virtually the same tribal makeup since at least a 1000 years or more. Things reported in the media that get a yawn today would’ve caused heart attacks in the early 1970s. It seems unbelievable that even a 44 year old man like me may likely live to see the end of Western Civilization.

      Thank Christ I’ve got 32 years on you. I won’t have to see it.

    I never cared that much about Volvos anyway.

    Goodnight Sweden.

    Excellent Article Your Grace. Things may look dark. But we shall triumph. Even if we lose, there will be one Hell of a fight. It will be like the last stand at Thermopalae.

      things look dark because that’s what death is like. Europe is dead.

    To continue the market analogy, I am convinced the hysteria that gripped Sweden has bottomed.

    I remain less convinced. Sometimes nations need to die.

      Nero has been fiddling in Brussels for a while now. The EU and western culture in euorpe will fall.

    So one lesson is that it’s better to be a grumpy individualist. That’s comforting.

    My ex-wife was of Minnesota Swedish stock. She and her family slobbered over anything-of-color, the more primitive the savage the better. Swedes might get the epiphany when the blade is at their neck, but I suspect they have somehow lost the instinct for survival.

    Good article, and by someone who actually lives there, which is a nice change of pace.

    Sweden, and the west generally, was already on the path to destruction – welfare state socialism, almost but not quite kept in check by technological progress – when the Mo’s blew in, attracted by the smell. It may turn out, as the author suggests, that the threat of the Mo’s will actually wake up Sweden, and us, from our insouciance.

      Has the abject failure of Communism in every country it has been tried ever dissuaded communists from demanding the implementation in another country? If Sweden becomes a bankrupt Shari’a hellhole, do you really expect any country that is already importing muslim migrants from learning from their example? Instead, we going to see the old communist excuse, “That wasn’t real Communism, this time we can really make it work”, used in a different situation, “That wasn’t real Multiculturalism, this time we can really make it work”. And it won’t work, and every other country who thinks it can will eventually become a bankrupt Shari’a hellhole.

        Keep in mind that Communism wasn’t a new thing when it came along, but a reactionary attempt to revert to the family/tribal economic organisation that classical liberalism had superseded. (The Communist dictum “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” only makes sense in a family or a tribe).

        That attempt showed that the Communist/family/tribe organisation is – to understate the case – not compatible with a significant population size. Systems which self-correct in this way are usually not a long-term threat, even though nations, such as Venezuela, will have another go at them from time to time.

      waking up when on your death bed will not help

    If Sweden has indeed ‘turned the corner’ wait a minute and then flush the toilet again to assist Sweden on its inevitable way. Most political or economics mistakes are self-rectifying over time, demographic mistakes are not easily fixed. Genocide or deportation are the only solutions if you ever want back the Sweden you once knew, and not some New Syria or New Somalia nation that mirrors exactly the old versions of these countries in deaths, culture and wealth.

    • The enemy is inside the gates, and they will multiply. Plus the second generation is worse than the first. At best, Sweden has 15-20 years.

      • WalterBannon

        agree totally

        they will never do what needs to be done which is expel every last muslim AND abandon socialism

  • WalterBannon

    So some of the Swedes have woken up, as the car that their drunk politicians are driving them in is flying through the air towards the telephone pole.

    Its already game over for Sweden. They are dead and they don’t know it.
