Now Even Swedes Are Questioning the Welfare State

Paying some of the world’s highest income-tax rates has been the cornerstone of Scandinavia’s social contract, with the political consensus in Sweden to save money for when the economy is less healthy. Yet the country is showing strains all too familiar in other parts of Europe with nationalists gaining support and Swedes increasingly questioning the sustainability of their fabled cradle-to-grave welfare system.
Resentment has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years, many from war-ravaged countries like Afghanistan and Syria, a huge number for a country of 10 million people.

There are also soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity. The number of people waiting longer than 90 days for an operation or specialist treatment has tripled over the past four years.
“The Swedish social contract needs to be reformed,” a dozen entrepreneurs including Nordea Bank AB Chairman Bjorn Wahlroos and Kreab Founder Peje Emilsson wrote in an op-ed in the Dagens Industri newspaper on May 31. “Despite high taxes, politics isn’t delivering its part of the contract in important areas. We get poor value for money.”

These two facts are actually the same.

Diversity causes immense social harm, the primary one being a shattering of the feeling of national unity, and a resulting unwillingness to pay high taxes to support foreigners who showed up explicitly to take advantage of the generosity of the state.

Sven has no problem with high taxes that support people he's familiar with and probably related to, but once that social system is being scammed and drained of funds by foreigners who are there mostly for the free money, it doesn't seem like such a great idea anymore.

Human beings are fundamentally individuals, not eusocial animals like ants or bees. Welfare state will eventually break down society as it promotes a different kind of evolutionary strategy in men (knocking up a bunch of single mothers and let other men pay for them instead of having to support them himself). Having a crowd of ethnically different people around just makes that reality crystal clear faster, lifting the usual mind fog that is foisted upon the usual post-WWII western society.

This can be said enough you can't any sort of working socialism and mass immagration from different cultures.

Swedish party wants to deport at least 500,000 migrants as integration completely fails

Kasselstrand believes this is the only way to solve Sweden’s problems:

“It’s not enough for a restrictive immigration policy. It is not enough to want to stop immigration. In order to solve the major societal problems in Sweden, one has to dare to talk about re-immigration. And not on a small one, but on a large-scale,” he said.

The AfS leader wants all residence permits since the year 2000 to be re-examined. According to him the much larger right-wing Social Democrats do not dare to address this subject.

For Kasselstrand integration has been a total failure. Two days ago he told Fria Tider:

“Sweden’s integration policy has been a total failure for 30 years. All politicians have failed. They have only burned our tax money. That is why a return is important, and that it is quick,” Kasselstrand said.

What would the Swedish version of Auschwitz look like? I’m thinking of dank sub-par furniture factories powered by burning hajjis.

They must have a bunch of ex-patriot Republicans getting more welfare there than they would here.

Reminds me of the flip side:

Mohammed is Fritz’s retirement plan. But Mohammed has a very different type of plan.

Fritz is counting on Mohammed to work while he relaxes. Mohammed relaxes and expects Fritz to work. Fritz is not related to him and therefore Mohammed sees no reason why he should work to support him. Why should 23-year-old Mohammed work for four decades so that Hans or Fritz across the way can retire at 61 and lie on a beach in Mallorca? Europe expects the Muslim world to bail out its shrinking birth rate by working and paying into the system so that its aging population can retire. The Muslim migrants however expect Europe to subsidize their large families with its welfare state while they deal some drugs and chop off some heads on the side. Mohammed isn’t staking his future on the shaky pensions of European socialism. He invests in what social scientists call social capital. He plans his retirement by having a dozen kids. If this lifestyle is subsidized by infidel social services, so much the better. And when social services collapse, those of his kids who aren’t in prison or in ISIS will be there to look after him in his golden years.

As retirement plans go, it’s older and better than the European model.

Europe is drinking rat poison to cure a cold. Instead of changing its values, it’s trying to maintain them by killing itself. The Mohammed retirement plan won’t save European Socialism. It will bury it.
