Sweden: a social democratic paradise on earth…

…for the serpents.

Decent morality is long gone. It was completely destroyed in little more than two generations — through public welfare benefits and the concept of welfare rights.
From How the Welfare State Corrupted Sweden by Per Bylund, via SDA.
What we are now seeing in Sweden is the perfectly logical consequence of the welfare state: when handing out benefits and thereby taking away the individual's responsibility for his or her own life, a new kind of individual is created — the immature, irresponsible, and dependent. In effect, what the welfare state has created is a population of psychological and moral children — just as parents who never let their children face problems, take responsibility, and come up with solutions themselves, make their offspring needy, spoiled, and utterly demanding.
For an extensive picture of the bleak prospect that Sweden has become, check out this piece on Gates of Vienna.

Of course, back when Swedes had morals, they were known for euthanising the mentally ill; or did they simply sterilise them?
The best shrink I ever met was a Swede; the second best was Irish.
