From the New York Times:

Hand Grenades and Gang Violence Rattle Sweden’s Middle Class

By ELLEN BARRY and CHRISTINA ANDERSON MARCH 3, 2018

… Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places. But gang-related assaults and shootings are becoming more frequent, and the number of neighborhoods categorized by the police as “marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity” is rising. Crime and immigration are certain to be key issues in September’s general election, alongside the traditional debates over education and health care.

Part of the reason is that Sweden’s gang violence, long contained within low-income suburbs, has begun to spill out. In large cities, hospitals report armed confrontations in emergency rooms, and school administrators say threats and weapons have become commonplace. Last week two men from Uppsala, both in their 20s, were arrested on charges of throwing grenades at the home of a bank employee who investigates fraud cases. …

Illegal weapons often enter Sweden over the Oresund Bridge, a 10-mile span that links the southern city of Malmo to Denmark. When it opened, in 2000, the bridge symbolized the unfurling of a vibrant, borderless Europe, but in recent years it has been more closely associated with smuggling, of people, weapons and drugs.

The influx of heavy weapons has caught Sweden’s criminal justice systems unprepared.

… The police are struggling to gather information in immigrant neighborhoods, and clearance rates for gun homicide cases have fallen steadily since the 1990s.

… Sweden’s far right-wing party blames the government’s liberal immigration policy for the rising crime, and will thrust the issue to the fore in the fall campaign.

Last year, Peter Springare, 61, a veteran police officer in Orebro, published a furious Facebook post saying violent crimes he was investigating were committed by immigrants from “Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden.” It was shared more than 20,000 times; Mr. Springare has since been investigated twice by state prosecutors, once for inciting racial hatred, though neither resulted in charges.

Even President Trump weighed in on the issue, saying that after taking in “large numbers” of immigrants, Sweden was “having problems like they never thought possible.”

Police officials are more likely to attribute gang violence to a failure of integration, citing a recent study of a Swedish street gang that found 24 percent of its members were ethnic Swedes, and 42 percent had been born in Sweden.

  1. Police think a grenade attack in Sweden – which killed an eight-year-old boy – could be linked to a gang-related conflict.

    According to Eurostat, in 2010, there were 1.33 million foreign-born residents in Sweden, corresponding to 14.3% of the total population. Of these, 859,000 (64.3%) were born outside the EU and 477,000 (35.7%) were born in another EU Member State.[22][23]

    The twenty largest groups of foreign-born persons in the Swedish civil registry in 2017 were:[24]

    Syria (172,258)
    Finland (150,877)
    Iraq (140,830)
    Poland (91,180)
    Iran (74,096)
    Former Yugoslavia (66,539)
    Somalia (66,369)
    Bosnia and Herzegovina (58,880)
    Germany (50,863)
    Turkey (48,299)
    Afghanistan (43,991)
    Norway (42,028)
    Thailand (41,240)
    Denmark (41,212)
    Eritrea (39,081)
    China (31,333)
    Romania (29,546)
    Chile (27,996)
    Lebanon (27,487)
    United Kingdom (26,685)

    The ten most common countries of birth among immigrants getting registered in Sweden during 2016 (including asylum seekers who came in 2015) were the following:[25]

    Syria (+51,540)
    Eritrea (+6,580)
    Poland (+5,078)
    Iraq (+4,901)
    India (+4,247)
    Somalia (+3,794)
    Afghanistan (+3,607)
    Finland (+2,969)
    Germany (+2,666)
    Iran (+2,469)

    Didn’t Sweden at one point say they’d take anyone at all from Syria? Paperwork not required.

    Strong motive for anyone who could “pass” as Syrian to head there. So the number of Syrians could be inflated. But they’d likely be from elsewhere in the Middle East.

    Why so many Finns? They’re in the EU but the number seems high.

  6. The reality is that many of these Middle Eastern and African cultures (Syrian, Iraqi, Turkish, Kurdish, Afghan, Lebanese, Somalian, Eritrean) are wildly confrontational, violent, hotheaded, and clannish. When they migrate to Sweden (or wherever), they bring their practices with them.

    Imagine if a time portal allowed Medieval European barbarians to cross over into modern Europe.
    Now imagine if those Medieval barbarians converted from fundamentalist Christianity to fundamentalist Islam.

    That’s literally what Europe is confronting now.

    Watch the first 2 minutes of the video below. Especially watch from 1:10 to 1:50.

    That’s pretty much going to happen once Muslim numbers grow large enough.

    By the way, for those who are unclear on the analogy.

    Modern Euros = Late-stage Romans
    Modern Muslims = Medieval Barbarians

    Here’s an interesting 2-minute video that offers a look at how Rome was weakened before it collapsed. Especially watch 0:45 to 1:00.

    This doesn’t seem quite right. One-fourth of street gang members are “ethnic” Swedes? No way unless they are mixed offspring raised by single, Swedish mothers.

    I think they're saying this.

    *24% of the gang members are ethnic Swedes
    *18% are foreign-origin peoples born in Sweden
    *58% of gang members are foreign-born

    Not sure if this is correct, but I think that's their finding.

    I think the ethnic Swedes are mostly in motorcycle gangs or Neo-Nazi gangs. Supposedly, there are "thousands" of Neo-Nazis in Sweden. These types of gangs typically don't blow up places with hand grenades though, so I doubt any ethnic Swedes are involved with the more insane instances of violence.

  8. The word on Yurop TV is that discontentment and the mounting influence of the “extreme right” has nothing to do with immigration but that the root cause thereof is found in “social problems” (which are left unspecified but probably have to do with the ECB’s decision to murderprint the EUR while making the well-connected ones richer?).

    Immediately thereafter you are shown rather big boys from Ghana (wut?) in an Italian home for unaccompanied immigrant minors, passing their time, waiting to get in and being overall sympatico, hoping for a better life and some local schooling. I understand, but…

    In other news, Wakanda is wowing the critics and is being considered a serious work on contrafactual African history, the Jennifer Lawrence vehicle wherein she plays a clearly eugenically enhanced Killer Natascha (hngg) is being approved of and Nadiya Savchenko is on some European Tour, warning that Putin will engineer additional flashpoints that will cause the Eurocrats to have even more sleepless nights.

    we can also assume the two men arrested for throwing the grenade which killed Mr. Zuniga were certainly not Swedish and nor European immigrants because the NY times failed to mention their names. Must be Mulsims , and the NY Times knows but hides these critical facts from its readers.

    Sweden under-regulates military hardware apart from guns. There's a Swede who teases gun enthusiasts on 4chan that he can get demobbed military vehicles cheaply and without special licensing. Apparently it always was wierdly easy to get grenades, but they were sought by a dozen wierdos playing with them in the wilderness, and only became a concern after the Diversification.

  15. I have been working in Stockholm for the past couple of months and met up with a relative of my wife who has been in the country for forty years. Per him, the Afghans and Somalis are primarily responsible for the rise in violence (especially incidents of rapes) and had turned attitudes against immigration from destitute Third World countries. Syrians in the country were actually doing really well since the ones who made it in (Sweden was offering residency to Syrian refugees early on) were usually educated and qualified and brought plenty of capital with them to start businesses.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/10450787/Rich-refugees-pay-thousands-to-flee-war-torn-Syria-in-luxury.html

    The gang warfare etc. doesn’t appear to have impacted central Stockholm at any rate and walking the streets late at night feels quite safe, you really don’t see large groups of immigrant youth loitering about it anywhere. Although I have been told drug-pushing is pretty common in the central train station. There was a terrorist attack last April when an Uzbek ran over and killed 5 people, I walked past the site of the attack twice a day for a week and you would not know it had happened. If there is one thing that protects Swedes it is the climate and working culture. It is dark and cold for 8 months of the year and people try to leave work promptly at 5 for home. That means there are fewer soft targets around, and the radicalised would rather stay indoors and play videogames than attempt a terrorist outrage when it is -14 Celsius outside.

  16. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places.

    When the article says, “violent crime is stable or dropping in many places,” is it referring only to those places where immigrants haven’t settled? Otherwise it doesn’t make sense, unless they’re using 1990 as the benchmark. For some reason murder rates in Sweden spiked then, much as they did in the USA.

    The following is from a Swedish government site:

    Data from the Swedish Crime Survey shows that in terms of lethal violence, there has generally been a downward trend over the past 25 years. Nonetheless, the level in 2015 – when a total of 112 cases of lethal violence were reported – was higher than for many years.

    Studies conducted by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention show that lethal violence using firearms has increased within the context of criminal conflicts. The number of confirmed or suspected shootings was 20 per cent higher in 2014 than in 2006. The statistics also show that 17 people were killed with firearms in 2011, while the corresponding figure in 2015 was 33.

    You do not actually need foreigners or specific minorities to significantly decline in PISA or any similar performance metrics.

    Look at this https://www.oecd.org/pisa/keyfindings/pisa-2012-results-overview.pdf , page 15. Even when Sweden is at the bottom and together with the second worst Finland, deterioration of performance can be blamed on immigration, the third worst deteriorating country is the Czech Republic (reportedly the decline continues unabated).
    Even when there has been immigration to the CZ, it has mostly been from other European countries (Slovak Republic followed by Ukraine). At least Slovakia does not send their worst (I would guess moderately above Slovak average). And impact of gypsies is low compared to the most of other Eastern European countries (estimates are around 3% of population). It looks like predominantly native driven decline.
    I have some theories based on personal observations...

  18. I love the New York Times. It takes an astonishing lack of shame to morph Sweden’s self-inflicted agony of into a story about the Danes (yes!) callously supplying a grenade to kill a member of the Swedish middle-class (per the headline) who is, of course, an admirable immigrant (he cares for the disabled! He rides a bike to work in the winter! He has a great sense of humor!) in front of his his admirable immigrant friend (he sells kebabs! He used to throw grenades himself while fighting a civil war in an Arab country, but unlike the dead hero he was very careful!).

    Let’s count up the score of New York Times propaganda points:
    1. Immigrants are all victims of government mistreatment, not perpetrators of crimes. Yep, in the Times’ story the problem is that the police have “lost the trust” of the people– according to a police spokesman!– and that is due to police investigators posting racist hatefacts on Facebook!
    2. Immigrants are all sweeties. Yep.
    3. Murderous violence in Sweden (or any place, really) is caused by the easy availability of weapons somewhere else, in this case Denmark. This proposition must be mandated by the New York Times’ editorial style guide, it is repeated so often. For example, every story about crime in New York City blames “lax gun laws” in the state of Virginia. Why all those guns lying about on the sidewalks of Virginia only cause crime hundreds of miles away in New York City is never examined.
    4. It’s Trump’s fault. Because he mentioned that “large numbers of immigrants” were giving the Swedes problems “they never thought possible.”
    5. Contra Trump, we know that immigrants don’t cause problems because 24% of the members of a prominent street gang in Sweden are “ethnic Swedes.” Huh? That must be a typographical error: 124% of gangsters in Sweden are “ethnic Swedes,” I’m sure.
    6. While immigrant victims and racist police officers have ethnicities, criminals do not. The ones who are arrested for throwing grenades in Sweden (to “send a message,” the Times informs us, “not so much as a weapon”) are merely “18-year old men.” They are innocent of any ethnicity, immigration status, religious affiliation, or gang membership.
    7. Every story must have one interesting fact, and for this story, the interesting fact is that all of Sweden’s problems stem from constructing and opening a highway bridge to the evil nearby country of Denmark. That was like opening the gates of Hell.

    I think they're saying this.

    *24% of the gang members are ethnic Swedes
    *18% are foreign-origin peoples born in Sweden
    *58% of gang members are foreign-born

    Not sure if this is correct, but I think that's their finding.

    I think the ethnic Swedes are mostly in motorcycle gangs or Neo-Nazi gangs. Supposedly, there are "thousands" of Neo-Nazis in Sweden. These types of gangs typically don't blow up places with hand grenades though, so I doubt any ethnic Swedes are involved with the more insane instances of violence.

    Always useful to parse the stats and to flush out those errors of omission or commission. So much of what passes for journalism has a dose of misleading information. Maybe time for a Truth-in-Writing law?

    Well, not quite. But from the abstract of an interesting Ph.D. dissertation (in Swedish):


    The dissertation shows, through studies of public debates, that equality gained unique status in Sweden. The public opinion surrounding Swedish foreign policy and the national discussion of the welfare projekt focused on equality. Equality became a discourse: especially antiracist, and anti-Nazi. The unquestioned point of departure for Swedish immigration policy in the early 1960s became to counteract discrimination and strive towards social and economic equality between immigrants and Swedes, which then included all political parties, significant special interest groups, and immigrants.

    The equality discourse acted as a catalyst. It inspired minorities to make their voices heard. They demanded ethnic equality and therewith expanded the content of the discourse. Equality included during this period respect for everyone's identity of origin. Soon politicians from all parties openly spoke of the need for state-supported pluralism.

     

    And who were leading the early public debate on the topic? Imagine my shock.

    I agree…could also be stated that 76% of gang members are not ethnic Swedes.

    *24% of gang members are Swedes
    *76% are immigrants or the children on immigrants

    we can also assume the two men arrested for throwing the grenade which killed Mr. Zuniga were certainly not Swedish and nor European immigrants because the NY times failed to mention their names. Must be Mulsims , and the NY Times knows but hides these critical facts from its readers.

We’re somehow doing 5 times worse than a country full of grenade-slinging “migrants.” It disappoints me that this has simply become an accepted aspect of American life and society, and is not considered a massive crisis as it ought to be.

    There, the rate of black homicides is nearly 35 per 100,000 black residents, according to a new analysis of 2012 federal data from the Violence Policy Center, a think tank that advocates for tighter gun control. That rate is nearly double the national black homicide rate of 18.03 per 100,000 and nearly eight times the overall national rate of 4.5. Nationally, the white homicide rate was 2.65. Despite making up roughly 1 in 12 Americans, blacks accounted for half of all homicides.

  50. The biggest obstacle for broader society to understand the race realist reality is the massive costs, social and otherwise, in discovering its viewpoints. Most people in western countries have neither the opportunity nor the inclination towards critical thinking to truly question the underpinnings of the current system.

    Who has time to connect the obscure constellation of scientific findings that inform Sailer’s viewpoint and the intelligence to understand its implications for our civilization? How many waffling Martin Lurthers came and went before the real ML actually made real social impact in questioning the Pope’s Catholic Hegemony?

    I contend that this system can persist longer than we can and will destroy our individual futures with social pressure to the point where our logic and empirical observations do not matter. In a sense, it’s a derivative of “the market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.”

    The only light I see, for common people to understand a more nuanced worldview with race reality mixed in, is for a society like Sweden to fail. To fail miserably and with great horror. Otherwise, the slow boil of open borders will cook all the the frogs of western civilization before they have a chance to escape the pot.

    Yes, I wonder what the end game for all of this is. The problem, even in your scenario that a graphic failure in Sweden informs the average person of the dangers, is that the horse has already left the barn.

    I don't have the stats handy, but I suspect that it is already a fait accompli that all (most?) great Western nations will shortly be minority white. They all have large numbers of third-world people, and the fertility rates of those folks will win out.

    I don't see fertility rates dramatically changing. I don't see forced or voluntary population exoduses from the West happening. And given that everyone gets a vote in modern democracies means that our societies will inevitably change when the population changes in character.

    Am I discounting realistic and ethical solutions?

    I think the change came when politics became a career dominated by professional politicians, rather than citizen legislators. The civic duty/civic responsibility that once lay upon the shoulders of the "town fathers" was transferred to professional pols whose main objective was self-interested re-election. Those so-called town fathers took it upon themselves to see to the local collective interests by taking their turn in one post or another, and then stepping aside for another, as Geo Washington did. And as part-timers, they didn't have the time or inclination to poke their interfering noses in everything under the sun.

    The ruin of once great industrial cities is another feature of cronyism, where the gains are privatized to the career politicians, while the losses are inflicted on the society at large--what pols describe as unintended consequences, and us mere mortals see as the secondary effect of their policies.

    The downfall began during WW2. A certain demographic was imported from the south east US to replace the men in the military.

    Destruction of schools began and the crime rate rose and rose. So the Whites were driven out by crime and terrorist tactics and the WW2 imports took over.

    It took about 14 years, 1941 to 1955.

    According to Eurostat, in 2010, there were 1.33 million foreign-born residents in Sweden, corresponding to 14.3% of the total population. Of these, 859,000 (64.3%) were born outside the EU and 477,000 (35.7%) were born in another EU Member State.[22][23]

    The twenty largest groups of foreign-born persons in the Swedish civil registry in 2017 were:[24]

    Syria (172,258)
    Finland (150,877)
    Iraq (140,830)

    The ten most common countries of birth among immigrants getting registered in Sweden during 2016 (including asylum seekers who came in 2015) were the following:[25]

    Well, Finland used to be part of Sweden so I guess we still feel sort of responsible for them. For instance, the Swedish Volunteer Corps fought for Finland in WW2. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_Volunteer_Corps_%28Winter_War%29) Sweden also took in Finnish children sent away during the war, though I'm afraid not always with great results. The kids mostly went back but Sweden has had a better economy for a long time, so Finns have come over to work and have settled. (Does this seem familiar to anyone in any way?)

    Also, wags have told me the Finnish welfare policy for a long time consisted of a one-way ticket on the Baltic ferry to Stockholm. Perhaps you could say they didn't always send their best? The Finns over here have thus generated their fair share of social problems.

    With that said, the current crop of third worlders are of course far, far worse. The Finns can stay, the third worlders have to go back.

    The most recent US rate (for 2016; the FBI doesn’t release the previous year’s Uniform Crime Report until sometime in the fall) was 5.3. The modern American low (in 2014) was 4.4. We’re somehow doing 5 times worse than a country full of grenade-slinging “migrants.” It disappoints me that this has simply become an accepted aspect of American life and society, and is not considered a massive crisis as it ought to be.
     
    The USA is doing "5 times worse" because of Blacks:

    Blacks are killed at a higher rate in Missouri than in any other state.

    There, the rate of black homicides is nearly 35 per 100,000 black residents, according to a new analysis of 2012 federal data from the Violence Policy Center, a think tank that advocates for tighter gun control. That rate is nearly double the national black homicide rate of 18.03 per 100,000 and nearly eight times the overall national rate of 4.5. Nationally, the white homicide rate was 2.65. Despite making up roughly 1 in 12 Americans, blacks accounted for half of all homicides.

    And the White homicide rate is inflated by the tendency to count Latinx as White. Does anyone have data just for White Anglos alone?

    But meanwhile the Swedes think- or are told by the globalists puppet masters- that their biggest threat is... RUSSIANS! A white people known for producing math, composing classical music, writing great literature, sending spacecraft to other planets, etc.

    According to wikipedia the Swedes and the Russians have fought 12 wars . They have far more reason to be wary of the Russians than we have .

    According to your list, the last Russian-Swedish war was the Finnish War which ended in 1809.

    On the other hand, there have been an even larger number of wars with Norway and Sweden on opposing sides, the last of which ended in 1814.

    So should Sweden simultaneously rearm against Norway as well?

    It’s hard to believe for foreigners but in reality most of the rulers(and the middle classes) are completely unable to understand that non-Swedes may have different customs or behaviours. It’s also true that if you’re saying foreigners are different you’re saying they’re inferior.

    The reality is that many of these Middle Eastern and African cultures (Syrian, Iraqi, Turkish, Kurdish, Afghan, Lebanese, Somalian, Eritrean) are wildly confrontational, violent, hotheaded, and clannish. When they migrate to Sweden (or wherever), they bring their practices with them.

    Imagine if a time portal allowed Medieval European barbarians to cross over into modern Europe.
    Now imagine if those Medieval barbarians converted from fundamentalist Christianity to fundamentalist Islam.

    That's literally what Europe is confronting now.

    Watch the first 2 minutes of the video below. Especially watch from 1:10 to 1:50.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgiL2WZvBy0

    That's pretty much going to happen once Muslim numbers grow large enough.

    By the way, for those who are unclear on the analogy.

    Modern Euros = Late-stage Romans
    Modern Muslims = Medieval Barbarians

    Here's an interesting 2-minute video that offers a look at how Rome was weakened before it collapsed. Especially watch 0:45 to 1:00.

    You made me waste some time googling Sweden.

    Is Sweden proof that school choice doesn’t improve education?

    In 2000, Swedish students performed well-above average on an international test called the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA). By 2012, they were below average in math, reading and science.

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/education/is-sweden-proof-that-school-choice-doesnt-improve-education

    You do not actually need foreigners or specific minorities to significantly decline in PISA or any similar performance metrics.

    Look at this https://www.oecd.org/pisa/keyfindings/pisa-2012-results-overview.pdf , page 15. Even when Sweden is at the bottom and together with the second worst Finland, deterioration of performance can be blamed on immigration, the third worst deteriorating country is the Czech Republic (reportedly the decline continues unabated).
    Even when there has been immigration to the CZ, it has mostly been from other European countries (Slovak Republic followed by Ukraine). At least Slovakia does not send their worst (I would guess moderately above Slovak average). And impact of gypsies is low compared to the most of other Eastern European countries (estimates are around 3% of population). It looks like predominantly native driven decline.

    Isn'it just regression towards the mean though? One would need some time to study this.

    Girls underperform in mathematics, compared with boys, in 37 of the 65 countries and economies that participated in PISA 2012; in OECD countries, girls underperform boys by an average of 11 points. However, this gender gap between the average 15-year-old boy and girl masks even wider gaps among the least and most able students. In most countries, the most able girls lag behind the most able boys in mathematics performance.

    Gender gaps in drive, motivation and self-beliefs are particularly worrying because these factors are essential if students are to achieve at the highest levels; and the relationship between drive, motivation and mathematics-related self-beliefs on the one hand, and mathematics performance on the other, is particularly strong at the top of the performance distribution. Unless girls believe that they can achieve at the highest levels,
    they will not be able to do so.

    Although boys show higher mean mathematics performance, differences within the genders are far greater than those between the genders. In addition, the size of the gender gap varies considerably across countries, suggesting that strengths and weaknesses in academic subjects are not inherent, but are acquired and often socially reinforced. Given girls’ lower levels of confidence in their own abilities, school systems, teachers and parents should try to find – or create – more effective ways of bolstering
    girls’ beliefs in their own abilities in mathematics, both at school and at home. In the short term, changing mindsets may require making mathematics more interesting to girls, identifying and eliminating gender stereotypes in textbooks, promoting female role models, and using learning materials that appeal to girls. Over the longer term, shrinking the gender gap in mathematics performance will require the concerted effort of parents, teachers and society as a whole to change the stereotyped notions of what boys and girls excel at, what they enjoy doing, and what they believe they can achieve.

     

    I have never found gender stereotypes in "mathematics" textbooks aimed at 15-year olds (are these primes sexist or what?). And if there is a problem at 15, wait till they are twenty.

    Good luck finding the magic potion.

    Didn’t Sweden at one point say they’d take anyone at all from Syria? Paperwork not required.

    Strong motive for anyone who could “pass” as Syrian to head there. So the number of Syrians could be inflated. But they’d likely be from elsewhere in the Middle East.

    Why so many Finns? They’re in the EU but the number seems high.

    Didn’t Sweden at one point say they’d take anyone at all from Syria? Paperwork not required.

    Why yes, the defining act of self-immolation by cuckservative PM Fredrik Reinfeldt. Of course, at the time Syria wasn’t deemed to be within walking distance. And it’s racist to demand paperwork, or used to be.

    Why so many Finns? They’re in the EU but the number seems high.

    Well, Finland used to be part of Sweden so I guess we still feel sort of responsible for them. For instance, the Swedish Volunteer Corps fought for Finland in WW2. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_Volunteer_Corps_%28Winter_War%29) Sweden also took in Finnish children sent away during the war, though I’m afraid not always with great results. The kids mostly went back but Sweden has had a better economy for a long time, so Finns have come over to work and have settled. (Does this seem familiar to anyone in any way?)

    Also, wags have told me the Finnish welfare policy for a long time consisted of a one-way ticket on the Baltic ferry to Stockholm. Perhaps you could say they didn’t always send their best? The Finns over here have thus generated their fair share of social problems.

    With that said, the current crop of third worlders are of course far, far worse. The Finns can stay, the third worlders have to go back.

    The weakness of Sweden and other European countries is directly linked to their acceptance of feminism. The men took female whining too seriously and gave them too big a say-so in everything.

    There's a tension. It seems to me that the countries that are the most feminist are currently the countries that are the most innovative and wealthy, but also the most likely to suffer and ultimately decline due to unchecked progressivism.

    I tend to believe that high-IQ, creative people are generally more open-minded and less tribal. And so the above isn't a coincidence, but a consequence. Being open-minded and tolerant is a virtue when surrounded by like people; it is a weakness that can be exploited otherwise.

    Having said all of that, I am a feminist in the "classic" sense. I don't think it's too controversial that women should have the right to accomplish whatever they are capable of and interested in. I think they would choose different things on average than men.

    YT barely can afford local housing either, btw. Unless he’s s state employee or something.

    So Communists. Figures they’d wind up in Sweden. I know some here who are a real blessing to America (not). Too bad they didn’t opt for helicopter transport during their emigration.

    Olof Palme would have encouraged Chilean leftists to come, until someone mysteriously gunned him down coming out of a cinema in central Stockholm.

    Sweden has a legal loophole that means there is little punishment for walking around with a live grenade.

    The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places.

    When the article says, "violent crime is stable or dropping in many places," is it referring only to those places where immigrants haven't settled? Otherwise it doesn't make sense, unless they're using 1990 as the benchmark. For some reason murder rates in Sweden spiked then, much as they did in the USA.

    The following is from a Swedish government site:

    Data from the Swedish Crime Survey shows that in terms of lethal violence, there has generally been a downward trend over the past 25 years. Nonetheless, the level in 2015 – when a total of 112 cases of lethal violence were reported – was higher than for many years.

    Studies conducted by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention show that lethal violence using firearms has increased within the context of criminal conflicts. The number of confirmed or suspected shootings was 20 per cent higher in 2014 than in 2006. The statistics also show that 17 people were killed with firearms in 2011, while the corresponding figure in 2015 was 33.

    The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places.

    That cracked me up, too. “violent crime is stable or dropping in many places” is 100% propaganda and 0% useful information. And I seriously doubt Swedes find “American standards” relevant regarding their murder rate.

    My dad, a regular great old Swedish guy, was taken aback when I pointed out that American murder rates are greatly driven up by blacks, and amazed that Harvey Weinstein is a Jew.

    I doubt “At least we’re not America yet!” would win a Swedish party the law-and-order vote.

    The biggest obstacle for broader society to understand the race realist reality is the massive costs, social and otherwise, in discovering its viewpoints. Most people in western countries have neither the opportunity nor the inclination towards critical thinking to truly question the underpinnings of the current system.

    Who has time to connect the obscure constellation of scientific findings that inform Sailer’s viewpoint and the intelligence to understand its implications for our civilization? How many waffling Martin Lurthers came and went before the real ML actually made real social impact in questioning the Pope’s Catholic Hegemony?

    I contend that this system can persist longer than we can and will destroy our individual futures with social pressure to the point where our logic and empirical observations do not matter. In a sense, it’s a derivative of “the market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.”

    The only light I see, for common people to understand a more nuanced worldview with race reality mixed in, is for a society like Sweden to fail. To fail miserably and with great horror. Otherwise, the slow boil of open borders will cook all the the frogs of western civilization before they have a chance to escape the pot.

    Then again, I come from a younger generation and I am somewhat perplexed that the older generations allowed the great industrial cities of America to fall into ruin.

    Yes, I wonder what the end game for all of this is. The problem, even in your scenario that a graphic failure in Sweden informs the average person of the dangers, is that the horse has already left the barn.

    I don’t have the stats handy, but I suspect that it is already a fait accompli that all (most?) great Western nations will shortly be minority white. They all have large numbers of third-world people, and the fertility rates of those folks will win out.

    I don’t see fertility rates dramatically changing. I don’t see forced or voluntary population exoduses from the West happening. And given that everyone gets a vote in modern democracies means that our societies will inevitably change when the population changes in character.

    Am I discounting realistic and ethical solutions?

    The weakness of Sweden and other European countries is directly linked to their acceptance of feminism. The men took female whining too seriously and gave them too big a say-so in everything. Look around, the level of feminism in any country is the level to which they've lost the ability to defend themselves. The societies that we regularly denounce as being sexist and patriarchal are the ones resistant to these invaders.
    Feminism is just a Trojan horse.

    There’s a tension. It seems to me that the countries that are the most feminist are currently the countries that are the most innovative and wealthy, but also the most likely to suffer and ultimately decline due to unchecked progressivism.

    I tend to believe that high-IQ, creative people are generally more open-minded and less tribal. And so the above isn’t a coincidence, but a consequence. Being open-minded and tolerant is a virtue when surrounded by like people; it is a weakness that can be exploited otherwise.

    Having said all of that, I am a feminist in the “classic” sense. I don’t think it’s too controversial that women should have the right to accomplish whatever they are capable of and interested in. I think they would choose different things on average than men.

    I have been working in Stockholm for the past couple of months and met up with a relative of my wife who has been in the country for forty years. Per him, the Afghans and Somalis are primarily responsible for the rise in violence (especially incidents of rapes) and had turned attitudes against immigration from destitute Third World countries. Syrians in the country were actually doing really well since the ones who made it in (Sweden was offering residency to Syrian refugees early on) were usually educated and qualified and brought plenty of capital with them to start businesses.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/10450787/Rich-refugees-pay-thousands-to-flee-war-torn-Syria-in-luxury.html

    The gang warfare etc. doesn't appear to have impacted central Stockholm at any rate and walking the streets late at night feels quite safe, you really don't see large groups of immigrant youth loitering about it anywhere. Although I have been told drug-pushing is pretty common in the central train station. There was a terrorist attack last April when an Uzbek ran over and killed 5 people, I walked past the site of the attack twice a day for a week and you would not know it had happened. If there is one thing that protects Swedes it is the climate and working culture. It is dark and cold for 8 months of the year and people try to leave work promptly at 5 for home. That means there are fewer soft targets around, and the radicalised would rather stay indoors and play videogames than attempt a terrorist outrage when it is -14 Celsius outside.

    @15 Ali Choudhury: “I have been working in Stockholm for the past couple of months and met up with a relative of my wife who has been in the country for forty years. ”

    That’s the root of Sweden’s problem right there. Neither you nor any of your or your family’s relatives belong anywhere in Europe or America. You have your own nation. Go home and exercise your self-proclaimed prodigious talents for your own people.

    I think the change came when politics became a career dominated by professional politicians, rather than citizen legislators. The civic duty/civic responsibility that once lay upon the shoulders of the “town fathers” was transferred to professional pols whose main objective was self-interested re-election. Those so-called town fathers took it upon themselves to see to the local collective interests by taking their turn in one post or another, and then stepping aside for another, as Geo Washington did. And as part-timers, they didn’t have the time or inclination to poke their interfering noses in everything under the sun.

    The ruin of once great industrial cities is another feature of cronyism, where the gains are privatized to the career politicians, while the losses are inflicted on the society at large–what pols describe as unintended consequences, and us mere mortals see as the secondary effect of their policies.

    This actually makes me a bit more downcast about the state of the US - even with this big increase in murders, it appears that Sweden's per capita murder rate was 1.1 per 100,000 people last year. The most recent US rate (for 2016; the FBI doesn't release the previous year's Uniform Crime Report until sometime in the fall) was 5.3. The modern American low (in 2014) was 4.4. We're somehow doing 5 times worse than a country full of grenade-slinging "migrants." It disappoints me that this has simply become an accepted aspect of American life and society, and is not considered a massive crisis as it ought to be.

    The United States is much more diverse than Sweden. Less than 2% of those living in Sweden are Black (Sub-Saharn African) although their the muslim population is 4%

    90% of those living in Sweden are still White…. under 65% of Americans are White…
    our Black population (14%) is 7 times greater than the Swedish Black population.

    The downfall began during WW2. A certain demographic was imported from the south east US to replace the men in the military.

    Destruction of schools began and the crime rate rose and rose. So the Whites were driven out by crime and terrorist tactics and the WW2 imports took over.

    It took about 14 years, 1941 to 1955.

    Nah, it’s the Chileans.

    Seriously, what the xxxx are 28,000 Chileans doing in Sweden?

    I am also surprised to see 40,000+ Thais. According to diaspora counts from Wikipedia, it looks like Sweden has the most foreign Thais per capita of any country other than Singapore, slightly more than Norway and far more than any other Western country.

    I wonder how that happened?
