Lördagsintervju 45 - Professor Arnstberg om hur demokratier dör.


Svensk Webbtelevision


Published on Mar 22, 2019

In the program, we meet Professor of Ethnology Karl-Olov Arnstberg in Thailand, where he begins by explaining why it is so dangerous that seven political parties hate an eighth. He compares the situation to Allende's Chile where the increasing antagonism in Parliament led to a national disaster.

Karl-Olov describes how democracy in Sweden has been eroded and that important issues for Sweden's future are not discussed by the parties. He believes that demographic change in Sweden is in principle irreversible and one of the most important issues for Sweden's future.

We discuss how mass immigration has led to a large proportion of the Swedish population not being self-sufficient.

Another effect is that the population has become highly indebted, which is probably an important incentive for international financial interests to push for migration to Sweden.

The risk with the excessive borrowing is that, if interest rates rise and property prices fall, banks must call in loans, leading to a decrease in the amount of money in the system. This creates a downward spiral where many risk losing their property but are left with the debt.

In such a situation, there is an increasing risk for conflict in society and, although Jimmie Åkesson and others who are hated by the '7-clover' parties do not seem particularly vengeful today, this could rapidly change in a crisis. This is another reason why those responsible for the problems we face do not want to recognise other parties.

Karl-Olov also addresses women's responsibility for opening up mass immigration. Emotion has been allowed to take over without them thinking about the consequences for their own, and their children's, future. Therefore it is important that women think again, which will also mean that many of their men join in if they have not already taken a stand.

We also discuss many people thinking of a "plan B", leaving Sweden. But we note that we must primarily concentrate forces on correcting the situation. For the vast majority there is no "plan B". We also advocate reducing personal indebtedness in good times, if possible, as it is so much more difficult at a time of crisis. If we are faced with a crisis it can go fast, making it too late to act.

In conclusion, the Riksdag parties are invited to get their act together and start working together!
