Greens have no country?

I thought readers might be interested in a few posts from elsewhere.

One is titled Sweden: The Triumph of Cultural Marxism. The Scandinavian writer Fjordman looks at the radical policies being adopted by the Swedish Social Democrats and the Swedish Greens.

The Swedish Greens, for instance, believe literally in open borders:

We do not believe in artificial borders. We have a vision of unrestricted immigration and emigration, where people have the right to live and work wherever they please ... We want Sweden to become an international role model by producing a plan to implement unrestricted immigration.


My one concern with Fjordman's article is that he appears to lay much of the blame on the Frankfurt school of "cultural Marxism". This school came to prominence in the 1930s - too late to explain the larger shifts in Western society.

At Dogfight at Bankstown there is an interesting post titled The Tyranny of Liberalism. It concerns the breakdown of the family amongst the poor in Britain, leading to a very sad outcome for one particular girl. Yet child-rearing experts refuse to judge or criticise the negative trends.

Finally, Vanishing American has posted an item titled Remaking Womanhood, in which she reflects on the changes in the imagery of womanhood in the last few decades.

    This would be fine, except that the Swedes also have a very generous welfare system which the new arrivals are happy to exploit. That and the fact that crime has skyrocketed with immigrants largely responsible.
