The Case of Sweden...

Roland Huntford wrote The New Totalitarians, a very disturbing portrait of contemporary Sweden in 1971. Roland Huntford makes the point that in the "Social Democratic" Swedish political culture totalitarianism, in the sense of complete political control of society, can be brought about by bureaucracy as well as brute force. The Swedish welfare state is the embodiment of the dystopian society Aldous Huxley envisaged in Brave New World. Individual freedom is sacrificed on the altar of social security and fornication is promoted by the state in order to destroy the family and pacify the population-taking the place of rebellion against political authority. In the state run school training in unrestrained sexual conduct begins at an early age; "most of Sweden has been taught to believe that freedom has been achieved through sex." Thus fornication becomes just another agent of control.

From the book:
...'As political and economic freedom diminishes,' says Hux-
ley, 'sexual freedom tends compensatingly to increase. And
the dictator (unless he needs cannon fodder and families with
which to colonize empty or conquered territories) will do
well to encourage that freedom. In conjunction with the
freedom to daydream under the influence of dope, the movies
and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the
servitude which is their fate.'

'Freedom' in Swedish is a word that appears to be taboo.
It does not exist in the political vocabulary, and it is rarely
mentioned in everyday language, in spite of the advancing
regimentation of the country. There is one exception, how-
ever, and that is in sexual matters. In the same way that
'security' is the creed of politics, so is 'liberty' that of sex.
The word 'freedom' is almost entirely confined to the
sexual field in Sweden. In every other department of life it
has been replaced by the vocabulary of the collective and of
restraint. Jargon like 'interests of the community', 'oriented
towards society', 'social responsibility', 'socially well
adjusted', and 'inculcation of the correct social attitudes'...

Why have I been so blind. This entry shows that even during high school, the Deicides were at work molding the world for a Judaized society of 'cattle'.
