Oh, I thought this was an article dealing with Sweden’s state sponsored Eugenic program.
>>On public services the Nordics have been similarly pragmatic. So long as public services work, they do not mind who provides them.<<
A gilt cage is still a cage. It sounds like you can be comfortably numb for all your life in these countries. If you want to really succeed, you have to choose your parents well.
Until 2008, you could succeed in the USA with average talent and intelligence but a lot of drive. Now, I don’t think so.
Yet he ignored the 600 pound Gorilla in the room, the Nords fund their socialism experiment with the North Sea Oil fields and the Sweeds with chocolate...
Taxation in Norway is extreme and the social bennies are great, till the oil runs out. But the cost of living is insane, a hotdog in a gas station runs 6 bucks, and it is the cheapest food in town.
Norway is a great socialist experiment, till they run out of oil. Then like all socialistic schemes, when the money runs out, it will inevitably collapse destroying the Society.
I have spent some time in Norway, love it and the people. Just get tired of all the “Obama is going to teach you how to be good socialists” cocktail talk.
To ignore the vast funds pouring into Norway from the State run North Seal Oil sales to make socialism look good is duplicitous at best.
Not only that, but the Nordic peoples may well have been the progenitors of ancient Greek civilization. Felice Vinci, in his seminal and well researched “The Baltic Origins of Homer’s Epic Tales”, hypothesizes that the scene of Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey” transpired in the Baltic Sea before the proto-Vikings pulled up stakes due to a global cooling period that rendered their lands uninhabitable. They then invaded the Middle East by two routes- overland via the Volga and Dneiper rivers and by sea in their long boats which were recorded by the ancient Egyptians as the “Peoples of the Sea”, an enigmatic and massive history changing migration for which archaeologists have few explanations for. The book is a fascinating read and anyone of Scandinavian descent will have their notion of “roots” re-engineered” into the position of being the wellsprings of Western Civilization. More here:
Well okay then, where are the Nordic supermodels?
Article fails to discuss, or ignores for politically correct reasons, the violent crime epidemic in Nordic countries, i.e. Sweden.
Sweden’s rapes are double Britains and four times France’s or Germany’s.
Sweden is now experiencing the results of multiculturalism and and its facilitating of Islamization.
“According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants.
...statistics from Swedens National Council for Crime Prevention (Brottsförebyggande rådet) show that the number of reported paedophile rapes against children is on the rise. The figures have nearly doubled in the last ten years: 467 rapes against children under the age of 15 were reported in 2004 compared with 258 in 1995.
According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Islamic republics of Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects.
1) 2001: According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants.
2) In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics.
3) The numbers in Denmark were the same (2001), and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges.
3) In 2011 the rape statistics had skyrocketed and were now fully dominated by immigrants, mainly Muslims. Authorities in Oslo, Norway, reported that immigrants were responsible for 100% of all rapes in the capital, while 90% of these were committed by Muslim immigrants.
Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe. The numbers there are likely to be at least as bad as with its Scandinavian neighbors.
Sweden has a population just a bit greater than Long Island, New York, and Norway about half that. To compare the United States, with it’s ethnically diverse population of 310 million, vastly larger physical size and economy, with a couple of largely racially homogeneous and sparsely habited forested strips of land, with comparatively miniscule centrally planned economies is laughable on the face of it.
These countries are POLICE STATES, run by some of the craziest politicians since the 1930s. They’re unwavering commitment to multiculturalism has led to a vocal desire to wipe out the native populations.
The people of Sweden have zero freedom beyond the right to have sex with whoever, whenever, which is what they call ‘liberty’. Homeschooling has been banned to force children through government run indoctrination. F*ck the Nordic governments. They are no more model societies than Zimbabwe and China, cages where people live robotic lives, never pursuing any dreams, and never questioning the new gods, politicians, as their culture is erased by rampant third world immigration.
Here are some crazy quotes from the corrupt trash that runs Sweden.
We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so towards us.
A concerted effort that aims at educating Swedes that immigrants are a blessing to their country must be pursued,
If two equally qualified persons apply for a job at a workplace with few immigrants, the one called Muhammad should get the job .It should be considered an asset to have an ethnic background different from the Swedish one.
Or how about Sweden’s commitment to counteract traditional gender patterns and gender roles?
These people are demonic, and should be in mental institutions, or brought up in the court of human rights for state-sponsored child abuse.
The Fabian Socialist cheerleaders at the Economist cannot quite bring themselves to support free market capitalism. No, they are still desperately searching for the Third Way, which is a form of soft fascism presently called “social market economy”. This term is defined in the Treaty of Lisbon as the economic system of the EU. But liberty, no, people might make choices we don’t approve of.
The reduction in the size of the State as a percent of the national economy is not a “new supermodel”. It is tried and true: the bigger the government, the less growth the economy can have.
The Laffer Curve is true, even if it leads people to the wrong conclusion. That is, it even leads conservatives to propose moving tax rates to provide the optimum tax revenues for government. However, this gives the biggest sustainable government which is the best way to destroy liberty ever invented. No, the Laffer Curve should show us how low tax rates can go and still produce enough revenues to fund the absolute minimum size of government consistent with maximum personal liberty. Just like the Founding Fathers already knew. So much for irrelevant dead white men.
Wow, super. Thanks for posting!!
