Woke up in France with a new Government in place in Sweden, 4 months after the election. A timeline unheard of in Swedish history and all caused by the fact that Sweden is a democracy which allows minor groups to influence the political roadmap. In the long run what now happened in Sweden just proofs my thesis that democracy is the best option but far from perfect.
Years ago, when the Arab spring took over the news and the western world, politicians, went crazy loving the fact that now democracy spread and wow what a fantastic bright future the world faced. From a European point of view the EU reacted like a kindergarten and leaders supported elections and and made thumbs up on social media in support to free elections, women’s rights, LGBT rights and free speech. Then when the free elections ended up in, from a western countries, not acceptable results he same politicians turned and all of a sudden “wrong” leaders were elected and the western leaders turned out to be against democracy if the people voted in their view in the wrong way.
Sweden, a country who let the rooster comb grow, as the perfect democracy just faced the same phenomenon. In the past election the “wrong” party grow to much and remember that Sweden is a small country so more than one million voters is a huge group voting for the nationalists. This fact made the “old” politic movements wake up to a reality they up until then put aside as an not possible option and gladly sacrificed the democracy to keep the power of the government.
All of a sudden the voters, whom up until now voted for them but changed to the nationalist was one thing and one thing only, racists. I don’t know how they in the past described those people, when they voted for the politicians that was considered as “the good once” cause it is the same voters, not racists voting 2014 but in 2018 a threat, racists and must be kept out of any decision making for the upcoming four years.
This truth ended up in what is the democratic systems problem, no one is satisfied with the outcome since in a panic mood the parties gladly broke all promises made during the election campaigns and new collaborations faced a Sweden who caused of this is a country now in line with many others “Democracy is fantastic as long as the people vote as the politicians want them too”.
So, and keep this in mind, the new Swedish Government, was put in place with 115 YES votes and 153 NO votes in the Parliament. All caused by the alliance of the Liberal movement and Communists all of a sudden working together. You read it correct Communist/Liberals Alliance. All to keep the third largest party out of power (third at the election now the second largest) cause they believe people voted wrong.
Have taste of this and let it sink in and you might end up in the same conclusion as I have done. Democracy might be the best option we have but its far from perfect when the people don’t vote as the politicians want them too.
