Did the Burgermeister Meisterburger, seen here in this undated file photo,take over Sweden?  It would appear so, considering the whacky Cultural Marxism taking place there.  For a bit more, take a look at this from the American Enterprise Institute…

But subterfuge and propaganda appear to be the order of the day in Sweden. In their efforts to free children from the constraints of gender, the Swedish reformers are imposing their own set of inviolate rules, standards, and taboos. Here is how Slate author Nathalie Rothchild describes a gender-neutral classroom:

One Swedish school got rid of its toy cars because boys “gender-coded” them and ascribed the cars higher status than other toys. Another preschool removed “free playtime” from its schedule because, as a pedagogue at the school put it, when children play freely ‘stereotypical gender patterns are born and cemented. In free play there is hierarchy, exclusion, and the seed to bullying.’ And so every detail of children’s interactions gets micromanaged by concerned adults, who end up problematizing minute aspects of children’s lives, from how they form friendships to what games they play and what songs they sing.

The Swedes are treating gender-conforming children the way we once treated gender-variant children. Formerly called “tomboy girls” and “sissy boys” in the medical literature, these kids are persistently attracted to the toys of the opposite sex. They will often remain fixated on the “wrong” toys despite relentless, often cruel pressure from parents, doctors, and peers. Their total immersion in sex-stereotyped culture—a non-stop Toys”R”Us indoctrination—seems to have little effect on their passion for the toys of the opposite sex. There was a time when a boy who displayed a persistent aversion to trucks and rough play and a fixation on frilly dolls or princess paraphernalia would have been considered a candidate for behavior modification therapy. Today, most experts encourage tolerance, understanding, and acceptance: just leave him alone and let him play as he wants. The Swedes should extend the same tolerant understanding to the gender identity and preferences of the vast majority of children.

The linked article has a wealth of information on the gender politics of the left, and how they seek to severely mess up children.  Rather than simply allow kids to play, the liberals there want to monitor and manage it.  In fact, they want to control it completely.  Combine that with the fact that the liberals want to separate children from parents at the earliest possible age, the over all pattern of control takes on a new and more sinister meaning.

When we say that the liberals want to control all aspects of human life, we aren’t kidding.

More Reasons to Avoid Socialized Medicine

Over the last two-plus years, I’ve been writing about socialized medicine, and why we should avoid it like the plague.  Here are some more reasons from Sweden…

A man from Nyköping in eastern Sweden has been denied a power wheelchair despite having had both of his legs amputated as the local health authority remained “uncertain if the impairment was permanent”.

Now, I’ve never been to Sweden, but to my knowledge, Swedes are just like the rest of us in that they do not regenerate limbs!

The man had his legs amputated after a long struggle with diabetes, but despite being unable get about, his application for a power wheelchair has been denied. 

“I was bitterly disappointed in the local authorities. I don’t feel I got the support I deserve,” Evert Stefansson told The Local. 

Er, sorry to inform you sir, but when you let the state “take care” of you, THEY get to decide what you deserve, if anything.   When one gives control of their own bodies over to the state, they lose all choice over the care they receive.

But, that’s not the end.  It seems that it’s not a great idea to need emergency care in Sweden…

In the Swedish media there has been one report after another of people not getting any healthcare at all. In fact, they do not even get an ambulance.

Let me give you one example:

“Help me,” 23-year-old Emil Linnell can be heard saying repeatedly in recordings of his January 30th call to SOS Alarm, Sweden’s emergency response service…

The transcript of the communication between the nurse and the man shows that he pleaded ‘help me’ repeatedly on the phone to SOS Alarm but was ignored.

According to the transcript the nurse said he couldn’t really understand what Linnell’s problem was. He said that Linnell was ‘running about the flat’ with no ‘apparent problem breathing or speaking’.

But Linnell persisted in saying he couldn’t breathe. 

“I know, but I have been sitting here listening to you. You are breathing fine now,“ the nurse answered.

“No, I am fainting! I’m fainting,” he said.

“Take a deep breath now,” the nurse urged.

“I can’t! Please help me! Please! Help me,“ pleaded Linnell. 

A little later he said, “I can’t breathe” again.

“You are breathing fine. I promise you,” the nurse then answered him.

The call then finished with a wheezing noise followed by a crash. Two hours later a neighbour found Linnell dead by the open door. 

No ambulance was ever sent, and it was later determined Linnell died from a ruptured spleen.

He was an individual, and when something is socialized, individuals don’t matter.  Too bad for him, but as long as the system remains, and the people in charge of it maintain their power…

Head over to the second link, The Cold Voice of Reason, to see the other examples.

But, it’ll be completely different here, right?
