The very basis of Swedish law stresses the freedom of speech. Free press. Freedom of opinions and to express them. Freedom of religion. We even have a unique law called “allemansrätten” which basically gives us the freedom to move around and enjoy nature anywhere in the country. We’re lucky. It was a fantastic thing to grow up and understand the luxury of freedom.
Today, as an adult, I learn that America is the only “free world” (country). The only nation that is great and going to be greater again. America is described as the land of freedom, the land that frees other countries and the pride can’t really be described.
What about the racism that permeate the whole society? Give me one news cast that don’t include race when describing someone that committed a criminal act. Remember this? “Three black men and one woman have been arrested in Chicago after they held a white man imprisoned.” That’s just one example of a daily phenomenon. What would have been different if I’d grew up in this environment? Fed with racism and discrimination every day?
It would probably be completely logical to ban people from the country based on religion.Torture (water boarding) would be okay because the affected will be Muslims. Fast chase out Mexicans because they’re criminal… Where does it end?
It’s NOT freedom to be defined by the skin color you were born in.
