Henrik,
Nåt som slår mig är att den svenska demokratin är rätt svag i jämförelse med t.ex USA. Här belönas kriminella politiker istället för att ställas inför rätta. Ygeman t.ex efter Transportstyrelsens IT-skandal, blev gruppledare för S därefter energi och digitaliseringsminister. Exemplen är många där tydligen största straffet är landshövding eller ambassadör. Vänskapskorruption är stor i Sverige. I USA ställs politiker inför rätta i alla fall, även om de inte alltid fälls. Hade detta hänt i USA hade förmodligen Ygeman skakat galler. Tycka vad man vill om USA, men dom har en stark demokrati.

So good to see someone from sweden actually taking up these questions and explaining it so that even some feministic and socialistic thinking person realise that what they believe is complete and utter rubbish! Thanks @Henrik Jönsson for this video. @Everyone else please share and like this video x1000 !

Du lyckades bli en entreprenör för att staten har gett dig möjligheter till att bli det. Eller menar du att du bara har använt privata former av infrastruktur, skyddsnät, utbildning, välfärd, et cetera?

Mycket missledande video. Hade du varit seriöst hade du tagit upp mycket mer i videon. Rehn-Meidner-modellen t ex. Inte en enda gång nämner du alla saker vi tar för givet idag som ALLA liberaler var emot som t ex fri sjukvård, A-kassa, förlängd betald semester etc etc etc. Vi hade 8 år av höger politik vore fint om du kunde göra en video och förklara hur det gick då. Och nej Finanskrisen vara inte i 8 hela år. Tar en vild gissning på att du gillar USAs modell, varför blir inte deras små företag stora?

Socialism always have been a byproduct of prosperity through entrepreneurship not vice versa. Like CO2 follows temperature and doesn’t precede it, socialism follows capitalism and doesn’t precede it. As they’ve sold the fairy tale of CO2 induced warming, they’re selling socialism induced prosperity. Both are blunt lies or at least the intentional inversion of cause and effect.

Calling the policies implemented "socialist" is just inaccurate. They are liberal policies. Policies meant to tweak capitalism out of it's exploitative nature. I think this video is good evidence that liberalism does not work to eliminate the suffering under capitalism but in many cases can make it much worse. The people must own the means of production not greedy capitalists OR bloated federal governments!

Lite ensidig analys. Du borde ju nämnt novemberrevolutionen. Krashen kom ju när vi byte från ett socialistiskt monetärt system till marknads styrt system, var ju privata banker som skapade krisen. (eller indirekt sossarna när de avreglerade kretidmarknaden, vilket kan ses rätt liberalt/borgerligt).

“It’s hard...” we have that in Denmark too. First of all, it’s not hard, it’s challenging, hard is waiting in the hospital, losing your home, divorcing and being very ill. Second of all, of it does get hard, it’s GOOD, because hard makes us better.

Really fair description I must say - being a swede. Socialdemocrats ruling constantly from before WW2 until 1976 - with no interruption - established costs in the common sector that we suffer from still. Everything built to make citizens dependent on system - less and less on creating independent citizens. Entrepreneurs is more like a threat - than an asset. Better if employed and part of a labour union figthing the evil companies - and at the same time under control, not independent. And the same goes for immigration policy importing new citizens fully dependent on wellfare systems in a rate that we never saw before - and not until entire system collapse will they change this. This will be in the next 5-10 years. 
European union built on exactly the same idea, every member country should be dependent of the "system', will suffer the same destiny now started with Brexit. Systems trying to control individuals will always go down the same route. When will we learn that full time employed politicians are bound to make individuals dependent of the system - rather than the opposite. This to ensure the politicians are needed even more. Now seing how european union try to control poland and ungary and their internal affairs and even how brittain should maintain borders towards ireland. This is how think will maintain peace in europe - a new sovjet union vibe is clearly here.

Henrik, jag uppskattar dina videos. Men angående libertarianismen, läs David Miller: "Political Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction" (2003) eller Albert Ellis: "Are Capitalism, Objectivism, and Libertarianism Religions? Yes!" (2007). Eller ännu hellre, läs min artikel "Subjektivismen i vår tid" (http://mlwi.magix.net/idealismen.htm ). Vi behöver inga fler ideologier som sätter griller i huvudet på folk. Istället, lär av historien och använd sunt förnuft.

The reason the swedish economy crashed in the 1970s can not only be attributed to socialism. At that time most of the developed world was catching up. Sweden basically lost monopoly on many large exports.

What Sweden and Europa and the USA and the whole western world is really experiencing is rather basic; it’s the curse of unearned and undeserved comfort and the rot it induces in the generation that has not comprehension for how or why they have what they have, let alone how to maintain it.
If you look, it’s visible all over when you can see it in context of history and psychology. It is essentially the archetype of the spoiled heir of Simone who worked hard and produced something good, but neglected imparting their children with the same fundamental respect, appreciation, and especially the ability to handle such unearned comfort in a healthy and humble manner. So they get involved with the wrong people, get hooked on drugs, have unsafe sexual practices, destroy, ruin, and squander everything they have for which they have absolutely zero understanding of the value of the things they took for granted and have no idea how they were produced. We are facing the reality that this is the total collapse of the civilized world, which, ironically, will tear the world of savages that are totally and utterly dependent on the civilized world down with it far more than the civilized world will ever suffer.

u forgot to point out that the deregulations were limited. sweden is still governed in communist/sharia style. e.g. swedish curriculum is still decided by the government and private schools are forced to follow it. u can't trash social "sciences" for more math classes. the idea behind competition in the school system is not about finding actors who can offer classes in higher demand, but who can teach the kids (brainwash) government curriculum the best. the colonial policies of swedish bureaucrats never ends. they are on a holy mission to civilize us barbarians. they are brahmins, we are dalits.

Missriktat att skylla på Olof Palme, han var ju ointresserad av inrikespolitik som då gick på autopilot enligt de särintressen Erlander skapat. Det var Tage Erlander 1946-69 som skrotade Folkhemmet och ersatte det med vad han kallade Det Starka Samhället., och ordet "samhälle" använder ju socialister synonymt med PK-staten. Så gott som alla myndigheter vi har idag grundades av Tage Erlander. Det var han som flerfaldigade skattetrycket, vilket ledde till 1970-talets massiva avindustrialisering,

From Wikipedia:

Social democracy
"Social democracy is a political, social and economic philosophy that supports economic and social interventions to promote social justice within the framework of a liberal democratic polity and a capitalist mixed economy."

Democratic socialism
"Democratic socialism is a political philosophy that advocates political democracy alongside a socially owned economy,[1] with an emphasis on self-management and democratic management of economic institutions within a market or some form of decentralised planned socialist economy."
Huge difference!

In the Sweden we don't like socialism either. Only the small left wing party (8 %) advocate socialism.

For some countries they have their left wing party trying to advocate both democratic socialism and socialist democracy - like Ecuador, UK, Canada, Netherlands, Serbia, and Croatia. I'm not sure if they have a separate social democrat party, but if they don't it would be difficult to keep the party together and unified in many issues.

In the Sweden, the existence of the social democrat party allows the huge difference in policies fall into respective party. The social democrat party is the biggest party (28 %).

As a person in the libertarian left part of the political spectrum, this video was interesting. Showed how seemlingy authoritarian socialdemokraterna were/are. This video didn't really convince me that social democracy was bad though tbh, because many of the failings of late 20th century socialdemokraterna had to do more with decisions made to make loans easier than with "the state being big". Also, to be fair, socialdemokraterna were in power already since before ww2 and kept getting elected all the way to 1976, and that's a big reason to why most of Sweden lives decently, because all the wealth made wasn't just going to the rich, like it did in for example the US, where you need to pay hundreds of dollars for prescription medicine and most people live paycheck to paycheck.

@Björn Larsson Again with the loaded words, I need some facts. The common person had it very bad in the 1800s, and the idea of "statare", basically agricultural slaves, wasn't abolished until 1945. The socialist governmentd made it a lot better for a normal person in the 20th century, but they fucked up because they did certain economic policies very wrong. The reason a normal person lives better in Sweden than in the US is because of social democratic policies.

@LuckyLuke People got enormously much wealthier 1850-1950s. The entrepreneurs reinvested their money in expanding the industry. When taxes got the highest in the world, they left and no new industrial company was founded in Sweden again. You know we had private banking the late 1800s with minimal government involvement and of course thus no inflation at all. It was back then the industrialization was financed. Tage Erlander created today's totalitarian all-powerful politically correct monster state. People still think that the 1970s were good times because the government borrowed for their consumption. Today the social gaps in Sweden are huge and that is the result of 73 years of social democracy. Socialism has never and can never lead to anything else than poverty and inequalities.

@Björn Larsson The wealth didn't stay in the pockets of the entrepreneurs 1850-1950? You're gonna have to give me a source on that. Also, you're using quite a lot of loaded words without making any real claims. School was destroyed? Inhuman suburbs? What does mass immigration have to do with any of this? Let's take one thing at a time.

@LuckyLuke The wealth didn't stay in the pockets of the entrepreneurs 1850-1950 either! Tage Erlanders politics 1946-69 was an economic disaster! Taxes trippled. The industry was ruined and collapsed in the 1970s. The countryside was killed. The cities were torn down and replaced with inhuman suburbs that have been a huge social problem ever since. The school was destroyed. A gigantomaniac bureaucracy was created that regulated everything in everyone's life. All media was put under government control as were the schools. Mass immigration started. And the old idea of paying taxes to help the poor was abolished and replaced with the government as an "insurance system" that gives more money to people the higher income they have. Nothing was well spent, it was all wasted.

@Björn Larsson Well that is exactly what i'm saying aswell. I'm not denying in any way that post-war Sweden gained a lot from the reconstruction of Europe. What i'm saying is that the wealth which was created in that era was used well, and it didn't all stay in the pockets of the ones who owned the companies, letting Swedes have very good standards of living.

@Henrik Jönsson We haven't had socialism for 30 years, but let's try to bash on the crash created by global capitalism, shall we? Ok. Sweden is the most liberally growing country in the world and is the most liberally extreme, you ignorant bastard. You're so out of lunch it's laughable. Your analysis is shit, because you cannot keep factors apart. This was weak.
Unless you love hatred and death, which I guess you do, because you think you're a delusional winner. All who vote for "cull the weak" think they are. Guess what, you're also part of the herd. Good luck thinking you're smart in the herd, wearing a tie with your laughable disposal of money. Am I mean? Sure, sorry. But he has to snap out of these fucking delusions we can blame an ideology for our fundamental failures. It's deeper than that.
