When I worked as a door-to-door salesman in Swedish ghettos 4 years ago apartments leased out to the Migration Bureau were the most off-putting. The environment was trashy, dodgy and chaotic and it felt like I was the first Swede they had ever encountered.
In the 60’s and 70’s the government embarked on a socialist venture with the so-called Million Programme, an ambitious public housing programme implemented by the Social Democrats so that everyone could live at a reasonable price. The very same housing projects are today worn and torn. Some are better than others but in many crime is rampant, American ghetto culture flourishes and ethnic Swedes are a rare sight. The result of yesterdays social engineers.
The humanitarian rulers of today are following in the same footsteps and it is maddening to see. Call me cynical and pessimistic but this will prove to be a textbook example of the inherent flaw of a democratic government, namely short-sightedness.

Sweden has a uniquely generous immigration policy. Everybody who claims to be from Syria, and can produce at least a semicoherent story during the brief interview with the Immigration Bureau, is automatically granted permanent residence (the story-telling is important, since 89% of asylum seekers have no ID.)
