I hereby write my first blog post on this blog. Since the day I decided to start writing here and inform the world outside Sweden on Sweden’s situation, I have been tongue-tied, or rather hand-tied. There are so many things to comment here in Sweden, so much to reveal that shows that our democracy is in serious danger. I myself woke up completely as late as this autumn. I had felt the suffocating discussion climate for a long time in media and society, but after starting to find information on my own online, I have woken up brusquely.
I have read a lot information from blogs around the world, I have found that the debate climate is tight in other western European countries as well, but in Sweden there is something particular, like a damp blanket all over the society, particularly regarding certain issues. But there is ONE issue that is absolutely forbidden to discuss, unless you have the “correct” opinion, and that is the immigration policy. Here Sweden still has the climate of former East Germany.
In Sweden, there are seven different parties in the parliament, but they all represent the same opinion on immigration. At the same time they defame the biggest party outside the parliament that has another opinion on the immigration policy. In other words and according to the parties in the parliament, there is no real possibility for the voters to impact this increasingly important issue.
In September, we will have our parliamentary election and it will be interesting to se and follow the election campaign up to the election and see how the “politically correct” parties will tackle this issue.
This was a brief start and until next time, I will take the temperature of Sweden.
PS If you have any questions on Sweden in this regard, I might be able to answer them. He who lives will see 🙂
