I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

sad2.gif Sweden and other countries taking in immigrants/refugees were and are still ill prepared to support them, integrate them into a different culture, retrain for jobs (are there any jobs there?). No money, no jobs, no future = violent protest. As for the cultural and social paradigm shift, I think that will take one or more generations to come. As for the political paradigm shift, well there is no choice, now is there? The lessons to be learned are still coming 'round the corner, and they are aplenty.

It's what happens when mainstream politics ignores the will of the people

Politicians live in a fantasy land with no connection to the governed.
How do you think Trump got elected?
People were sick and tired of nonsense being shoved down their throats.

Right, I mean...
the outcome of most things happening right now have already been played out in some form or another in the past, and they all have a common thread...
fail, fail, fail.
There's nothing new under the sun.

A lot of these progressive ideas are the same they had had in Rome just before things collapsed.

Just about every civilization/empire has been brought down by diversity.

I saw some other vids yesterday showing Swedes being pretty pissed off about the immigration issue. One was a city council meeting. Of course, the video consisted of the citizens asking questions and the council members not giving a single answer and ended with the council members calling the citizens racists. At issue was the council putting an immigration housing project next door to a school.

President Harry S. Truman: The only thing new under the sun is the history you don't know.

I've seen other videos of her. I like her. She is very intelligent and clearly knows what she is talking about.

I'll give you an example of the state of the far left lunacy. The LGBTQ(etc) community is in a big battle. A while back a poster from 4Chan made a post saying that the LGBTQ community was kicking the Bisexuals out because Bi implies that there are only two genders. It was a joke but didn't stop some in the LGBTQ community from taking the ball and running with it. Now there really is a movement in the community to oust the bisexuals for that reason.

The loony left has become so intolerant and pampered that it will destroy itself.
