Sweden going down, too?

Try reading this article from The Brussels Journal and not become even a bit worried about path we have chosen for ourselves. Sweden is facing massive problems with its immigration policies and this is not because of immigration in general (see the United States, the country of immigrants) but because of the way the Swedish nanny-state treats its immigrants ("Do what the hell you want and we'll pay you").

The Journal article led me to another blog entry about Sweden:

"The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six - 6 - times as common today as they were a generation ago"

"Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents."

While Europeans have wasted their time complaining about America's failure to fight crime they have helped to create a bunch of social problems that cannot be solved by relying on means that have turned out to be old and ineffective (this actually indicates that the Social Democrats of the Old Europe/Scandinavia, and their voters, have become conservatives). At the same time, the United States has witnessed a major decrease in crime rates.

The left has loved to argue that close to 50% of America's death row population is African-American (and forget that more than half of America's homicides are committed by African-Americans). Again, back to France:

"A trend known from other European countries such as France, where Muslims make up 10% of the general population, but 70% of the prison population"

So much for the European "Social Model".
