Sweden: See Nothing, Say Nothing

Swedish state TV is not only hiding and/or obfuscating the news about the beheading of two young Scandinavian women in Morocco, but it is also threatening its viewers with prosecution if they should happen to share the video of the crime on social media.

It may well be that posting the beheading video would not in fact be covered by the mentioned statute, and that no prosecution for it would ever get to court. But, knowing the compliant Swedish character, the media are counting on their audience to keep their heads down and say nothing.

Ingrid Carlqvist talks about the Orwellian world of Swedish TV in the following video. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting this interview:

  1. This problem crops up everywhere in the West now. The core of it is fear of being accused of racism, and threats by the state to punish those speaking freely if their speech draws attention to criminality by minority group members.

    The source of this is a liberal belief we aren’t yet ready to abandon: that all groups are equal and cultural differences are on the surface and irrelevant.

    But a growing percentage of people reject this. Groups ARE different. Relative levels of group success do differ. High levels of group failure largely coincide with higher levels of criminality. Lberal elites refuse to believe this, and to maintain the liberal illusion that groups don’t differ they increasingly refuse to enforce laws fully against minority perpetrators of crimes.

    This we have to start acknowledging that group failure does exist, and much higher levels of criminality and violence occur in such groups. If the state refuses to use lawful state violence against minority criminals, then citizens will inevitably use citizen violence, organized, swift, and total, against such criminals. And if the state intervenes to prevent this, then citizens will have the moral right to use violence against the cowardly, lawless state. European gov’ts are virtually guaranteeing localized civil insurrection all across Europe within 3 – 5 years.

    • And at this point, this is the least worst option. Like war itself, when you let things get bad enough, war is the least awful solution to a problem.

      • War, like betrayal of any kind, is the most common human pastime, somewhere right after eat, eliminate, sleep, and sex.

        We can learn to curb our aggression, but it takes an over-arching belief in transcendence to make a peaceable kingdom possible or even slightly enduring.

    • I recently saw a video clip of Jordan Peterson (what a boon he is, to all people irrespective of politics), making the point that a culture is just a collection of ideas, and not all ideas are good!

        • He does proclaim himself to be neither liberal, nor conservative, as far as I’m aware. And he’s more likely a liberal that just prefers to use common sense than buy into the propaganda, than your typical conservative. Or he’s somewhere in the middle, maybe.

          But even though I don’t know what video we’re talking about exactly, I dare say Mark either misunderstood it or didn’t tell us the whole context.
          I’ve watched Mr. Peterson’s lectures, interviews and many other videos surrounding him (not only do I find his style of explaining psychology fascinating, I wanted to know more of him because with some of his beliefs I can’t agree and other times his words get really twisted around in order to fit the narrator’s ideas) and what he generally says would translate more to “a culture is a collection of ideas and SOME ideas are no good.” Which is relatively true. It’s the very reason why civilisation has moved on from human sacrifice, for example.
          He’s also very clear about the need to be part of a group, to have a set of values, which we use to navigate through the world. And the fact that we can feel at ease when we’re within a group with the same values, because then we know what to expect. Doesn’t sound like being opposed to the idea of culture to me.

          • I like Peterson; even bought (and read) his book.

            The comment to Mark H was meant in jest in this context, but obviously that’s not apparent.

            However, after watching many hours of JP’s interviews, I am often left wondering about his po-mo academic slant. Sometimes he seems determined to be neither fish nor fowl nor good red herring. This stance, or lack of it, may be a necessary refusal given the hazards of his occupation.

    • I don’t agree that government malfeasance will necessarily result in vigilante justice. I think it just as possible that the immoral, unaccountable bureaucrats who control the government will run the country into the ground, impoverishing the population and subjecting them to primitive violence and horrific living conditions. Look at Venezuela. Look at Cuba of the 1950’s, after Castro’s victory. Cuba went from a prosperous, up-and-coming economic dynamo to a third-world sinkhole in a very short time.

      I personally doubt if there’s a future for democratic constitutional governments as we know them. Ann Coulter is always making the point that Trump lost the popular vote, and won the electoral by very thin margins in the swing states. A few million more Democratic voters, and Florida and Texas will shift; may have shifted already. My own city had a very conservative state senator and state representative, both of whom lost to leftist Democrats the last election.

      • Agreed.

        Certainly the citizens who want to physically revolt require at least a few leaders they can rally around who have some actual military and/or police fire-power behind them. If this exists in Sweden, I don’t see it.

  2. So they don’t broadcast war footage? Lying about what the laws are should be punished with a beating.
