SUMMARY IN ENGLISH
CONTRA # 6 2016
When will the Social Democrats wake up and see the threat from the East?
Within the Social Democratic Party (Sweden’s biggest) no one dares
to mention the four-letter word NATO. Is there really not a single one
within the party who is prepared to put national interests before the
career prospects within the party? For sure the reaction to an outspoken
advocacy of Swedish membership would be frosty. But a Swedish membership
would be a natural way for the Social Democrats to take responsibility
for Sweden’s, the Swede’s and thus the electorate’s
national interests. Is Defence Secretary Peter Hultqvist the man to finally
The population explosion – a problem of the past, by C G Holm
Fifty years ago the population explosion was the biggest threat to mankind
according to the United Nations. The population still increases, but far
from at the pace of the 1970s. And soon the population of the earth will
reach its maximum.
Climate alarmism and media,
by Ulf Swenzén
Media, both in Sweden and abroad, have been transformed into propaganda
tools for climate alarmism. This to an extent that they publish untruths
in order to promote the ”good cause”.
Garry Kasparov’s dark view on Putin’s mafia state,
by Tommy Hansson
”The natural reaction, the human reaction, to the victory in the
Cold War was to hug the former enemy”, writes Garry Kasparov in
the introduction to his book Winter Is Coming. The euphoria after the
victory for the good guys cannot hide the fact that evil does not die,
it only takes on new shapes. Many former dictatorships in the East have
managed the transformation into democracies, but unfortunately this does
not include Russia. Russia has instead developed into a new authoritarian
state run by Vladimir Putin, with a certain measure of KGB and Soviet
nostalgia, but also mafia control.
Victory for Donald J. Trump,
by Nicholas J. C. Boyd
Donald Trump the next president of the United States? Oh no?! The world
is wondering after the outcome of the US election. Many have theories,
but few in Sweden understand. As a conservative Swedish-American living
in the US I want to contribute with my own perspective as a guide to understanding.
Return to geopolitics in Scandinavia,
by Bertil Häggman
In the end of September 2016 an important book on geopolitics was published.
It was written by Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former Danish prime minister
and former General Secretary of NATO. In 2014 he formed Rasmussen Global,
a consultancy, offering geopolitical and strategic advice. The book is

The crooks know that they will find money in the care industry,
by C G Holm
In the 1970s handicapped people were granted ”assistants”
to help them lead a normal life. The reform was introduced by a Centre-right
government and the idea was to help a marginalized group in society. A
group previously exiled into institutions or in the better cases being
taken care of by loving relatives overextending their capacities. But
the volume of money granted tease a lot of crooks to get unfair benefits
for themselves or their relatives with minor or faked ailments.
Goodbye to the welfare state,
by David Stavenheim
Goodbye to the welfare state is a book written by political scientist
Andreas Johansson Heinö. In a short time homogenous Sweden has been
transformed in what could be called a coup. Former Prime Minister Olof
Palme used the world ”revolution” to explain the multicultural
society. And it’s a true description. Johansson Heinö says
that the development from the welfare state to the immigrant society is
a transformation that no other society has experienced. From one of the
most homogenous societies in the world Sweden has been transformed into
a multicultural society with unique rights for immigrants.
