Nowadays, for Swedes to feel even remotely patriotic about their country and its history, they run the risk of being likened to goose stepping racists. Fjordman describes best what ails Sweden the most, in a very prophetic analysis of the failed Swedish social experiment called multiculturalism.
Fortunately for the Finns, they know from recent history what it feels like to almost lose one’s country. Suffering enormous losses in their fight with the Soviet Union during WWII, Finns still consider being conquered the worse of two evils.
Is it just a coincidence that the one country on the European continent that has avoided war for the longest period of time, Sweden, is also arguably the one Western nation where Political Correctness has reached the worst heights? Maybe the prolonged period of peace has created an environment where layers of ideological nonsense have been allowed to pile up for generations without stop. I don’t know what Sweden will look like a generation from now, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be viewed as a model society. And if the absence of war is one of the causes of its current weakness, I fear that is a problem that will soon be cured.
