Our Changing World

There’s been a political earthquake in Sweden overnight:

Sweden’s right-wing parties combined to win a remarkable, if slim, election victory on Wednesday, buoyed by surging support for a far-right nationalist party, the Sweden Democrats, an electoral convulsion expected to shake national politics and likely end eight years of rule by the center-left.

But it’s been coming for some time as crime has risen relentlessly and Sweden’s famed Centre-Left consensus on all matters began to fade due to hubristic, ideological and frankly stupid decisions by the The Powers That Be, starting with mass immigration from the Middle East:

Over the last twenty years the Sweden Democrats have gone from being a “extremist fringe party” at nearly zero percent in the polls to twenty percent plus , while the Social Democrats have dropped from 45% to 30%, having ruled the nation for all but 15 years since 1932.

I don’t envy the new government because so many of Sweden’s problems are now so deeply embedded that it’s tough to see how they can be turned around, even though a majority – a very slim majority – now see the problems because they’re in their face. The following has been said in other ways but I was struck by this quote, which is not from that article but one I was reading about the great Trans-TERF wars:

Robert Anton Wilson famously said, ” It only takes 20 years for a liberal to become a conservative without changing a single idea. ” Whereas those who would now be defamed as TERFs were on the far bloody cutting edge of leftist politics a generation ago, they now find themselves outdated or, as the kids like to say, ” irrelevant.” Without having changed a single idea, they find themselves labeled not as bold freedom warriors fighting the good fight against oppression but as hateful reactionaries who stand in the way of true progress.

But that fits with this final paragraph from the article on Sweden:

Even though the revolution is happening slowly and is being fought tooth-and-nail by the globalist/World Economic Forum elites, it is happening. Populist and culturally conservative forces are merging in the face of an existential threat created by governments who loathed their own people and liked nothing more than cheap labor and a compliant base of bought voters. If this revolution is surfacing in Sweden, of all places, then the tidal wave is building that will sweep over Europe…and maybe America and Canada, too.

And New Zealand?

  1. I was about to repost that Winston Peters speech, but it is unbearably long and the detail is such that only a kiwi might be interested.
    In regards to the rest of your post, I would argue that Jacinda is living proof that big government is not the answer to every problem (some would argue it’s not the answer for any problem).
    They may have trampled over the Wellington protest and their supporters (30% of the population), but the opposition hasn’t gone away, it simply carrys on, reduces any dependency on government, and prepare’s for the next ‘plandemic’.
