Sweden has in the later years become what could be regarded as a weak democracy due to a massive deterioration of freedom of speech in the public sphere. I.e views that are not shared by the multiethnic collective consensus whether religious, conservative, anti-globalist, nationalist or unique in a non-stereotypical way are regarded as provocative, undemocratic, extremist and dangerous and are viciously attacked by the politically correct majority on all levels of society. Contrary to the inviting facade that claims to idealise individuality and democracy the truth is that all is not as it seams in reality.

Sweden is a great country but its support to homosexuality makes it terrible.

  • Sweden is largely about equality, and is a rather polite society. I think its important they can keep it that way. Sometimes a person's rights are preserved by not letting others infringe upon them with total 'freedom' to be nasty and hateful. Having spent some significant time there, and having many close personal connections to Sweden, I can tell you it is quite idyllic aside from the weather. ;)
