I was told to be lucky to be able to live in one of the world’s most peaceful and decent countries, and that’s what I can read at various lists and articles where they compare countries. Alright, let’s see.
Sweden hasn’t been in war for a few hundreds years, that must show it!
Well, it’s not a secret that in WWII for example, Sweden sold arms to both sides and made shit loadz of money on it – hence a nice economic boom.
Also a known fact that Swedish soldiers serve in Afghanistan – doesn’t that make Sweden take part in a war?
And what about the training fields for NATO (in a neutral country, which is beating her chest so much about being a model country for neutrality – correct me, if I am wrong)?
More and more details of manufacturing and selling weapons by Swedish companies and authorities are coming to light. Like this one: Sweden’s Saab sold arm to Saudi Arabia
Yes we know, war is the best business for those who provide the material means. (But then… khm… what was this all Saab bankruptcy circus about? Where did the big money go?)
And we also know that war is killing of other human beings. So my one billion Kronor question is:
If the vast majority of people want peace, WHO is happy and proud about the money they make by killing people? WHO are those few guys? They should be named and publicly hanged, or something of the sort.
In the history of Mankind, there have been a couple of great man from whom we all can learn. One of them said about war:
“War is fear cloaked in courage.” – Gen William C.
Well, no comment to this one… Or: what is Sweden afraid of? One of the best countries of the world shouldn’t have any reason to.
“There was never a good war or a bad peace.” – Benjamin Franklin
So which one of all the wars Sweden was/is supporting was/is good?
“Peace will not come out of a clash of arms but out of justice lived and done by unarmed nations in the face of odds.” – Mahatma Gandhi
How is Sweden providing true justice, based on REASON?
“If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.” – The 14th Dalai Lama
How Sweden’s selling weapons to both sides of conflicts provides peace for another?
“Ideas and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind. Individuals, and not masses, form the culture of the race.” – L. Ron Hubbard
What are Sweden’s ideas about how to live in peace, without battles?
How is the individual supported in a society where outstanding achievement, sticking out of the crowd, daring to be different from everyone else in not cool but frowned upon, where talents are suppressed, because of a misinterpretation of “everyone should be treated equal”?
“If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.” – Mahatma Gandhi
How do Swedes educate their children for peace? By dressing already the little babies in black clothes with hate symbols like skulls and cross bones?
“Peace is costly but it is worth the expense” – African proverb
How is money spent on peace, where can one see the rocketing statistics of that?
“It is more difficult to organize a peace than to win a war; but the fruits of victory will be lost if the peace is not organized.” – Aristotle
How is Sweden organizing for peace?
How is Sweden a law abiding country, if, through decades, the governments and parliaments (which are elected by and are the representatives of the citizens, so whatever happens in this country, it is ALSO the responsibility of the individual citizens and NOT only of the Nanny, I just put this here in parentheses, for Swedes seem to forget this) – if they are so disgustingly violate the weapon export law, for one?
How on Earth can Sweden be called one of the most peaceful nations of the world, when they are one of the biggest arm exporters as well?
A few questions, before the election day…
(ps: this I wrote particularly about Sweden and her open or underhanded warfare dealings, but as for war, it would concern a couple of other nations, too, one can think of too many.)
And to ease up a bit after this heavy topic, a music video, with a Hungarian song arranged by an Israeli composer and put to photos of the beautiful Swedish waters of Baltic Sea…
