Perhaps you should be grateful to be here earning, see the positives, life is a lot worse for many elsewhere in the eu.

Thanks to one of the members of this forum, I can put a word to how swedes solve critics.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whataboutism

We have high unemployment but at least we are not hypocrites who look the other way to real problems or simply keep quiet when it's not convenient.

Sweden is all about Whataboutism and downplaying problems it's pure hypocrisy. It's a country afraid of others that's why the whole system is so restricted and limited because you all know housing is key to be competitive and you all know what's happening.

That's dishonest, I will never think this is an honest country. Sickening mindset to be like that.

Because you know your country is not so great. ;-)

Every country has it's pluses and minuses. You will never find the perfect place. If Sweden is where you can get work, then so be it. I will give you a small piece of advice that you can choose to take to heart or ignore:

If you are going to live in Sweden, then you will have to make peace with that decision. To be in a constant state of anger and blue funk is not going to serve you well. Figure out what the rules are and how the game is played and do your best to adjust. Otherwise you will never be happy.

Back to personal non sense. Remember this thread is about dysfunctional housing system in Sweden.

Now back to personal attack and whataboutism.

That tough choice; having a job in a country you don't like and being jobless in your perfect homeland.

I agree. No where us perfect. You just find what suits you and your interests in life. Constant complaining will just make a person ill.

Worships free market. Complains when feeling the effect of supply and demand. You are starting to sound like the Swedish Employer's Association (Svenskt Näringsliv) who worship at the altar of the free market but then complain when people who have actual in demand skills are not interested in working for wages that a fast-food worker would reject.
