Stockholm Syndrome

Writing for the Gatestone Institute, Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist describes the situation in her homeland — which for most of my lifetime was the holotype and exemplar of the advanced, peacable modern Western nation — as it sinks into darkness and disorder, thanks to its mass importation of wholly alien, mostly Muslim, immigrants.

Swedish citizens, like so many others in a rudely awakened Europe, now seek to arm themselves — which is no easy task in an Eloi nation where even sleeping with a baseball bat under the bed can apparently get you into legal trouble for being “prepared to use force”. Can there be any better example of the exhaustion and etiolation of a once-vigorous people? How can any human population survive when it forbids itself by law to defend its own women and children?

Speaking of Sweden’s women, they get the short straw in this anything-but-Brave New World:

Since the Parliament decided in 1975 that Sweden should be multicultural and not Swedish, crime has exploded. Violent crime has increased by more than 300%, and rapes have increased by an unbelievable 1,472%.

Read the whole thing here. As the world burns, it is harder and harder — especially in the wake of the recent synod of climate Houyhnhnms in Paris — to look at the modern West, or at least the anointed in charge of it, as anything but completely insane.

    It’s interesting how leftists so outraged over the supposed “rape culture” on American college campuses have little to say about the real rape culture on display in Sweden and Rottertham.

    It would seem that Hobbes has rudely eaten their Lockean lunch.

    Nothing is interesting about the Left except for the depth of their depravity (and interesting only in the Chinese sense).

    This is pretty much what I think. The West has lost its way somewhere. Unfortunately it is going to take decades of history to determine where we went wrong. Maybe the West was too successful in creating stable, law abiding, rich civilizations where technological innovation could advance unimpeded. But we have become fat and rich and have a long way to fall before we can figure out what is really important other than the newest I-phone or that the Netflix streams without interruption.

    Good one, Troy, though I can’t think what could possibly be more important, other than the newest Android phone.
