I haven't been to Sweden, but I do suspect that its people have gotten a bad rap. I think there are a lot of honorable, courageous, rational Swedes, just as there are honorable, courageous, rational people in France, New England, even San Francisco. It's just that they seem to be a permanent minority in politics, which leads the government to act in a cowardly manner -- and to redefine society in such a way that cowardice is gradually imposed on an otherwise-good population.
The gradual destruction of Sweden (the Netherlands may be an equally good example) is an excellent topic for conservative scholars and commentators. It deserves far more attention, and the American people, more than a few of whom have Swedish ancestry, need to know more about it.
Sweden's neutrality in WW II is distressing and cannot be wished away. However, no other nation was subjected to the same test -- except Switzerland, which remained equally neutral yet has escaped trashing for it until recently.
What about neutral Ireland, which was much farther away
from the Reich?
Would Holland have remained neutral if it hadn't been attacked? Belgium? Denmark? Norway? Poland? Austria? Hungary? The United States?
