Immigration is the most sensitive and explosive issue in the world right now, but this book shows how Swedish politicians and media, in the first half of the 2010s, turned denial and oppression of criticism of Sweden's open borders policy into a fine art form. People are discouraged from supporting the Sweden Democrat party - the only parliamentary party that wishes to restrict immigration - by every means possible, fair or foul. One argument is that the liberal pro-immigration elites will eventually be cutting off the branch on which they are sitting: There is no global commons, and Swedish customs, culture and political traditions evolved over centuries have helped Sweden become enormously successful. All that is in serious danger if Sweden loses its cohesion as a society. As Trump has discovered in the United States, the white working class feels abandoned by its political and media class, the "globalists" or "cosmopolitan internationalists", who preach mass immigration but are sure to be the last group to feel its negative effects. But feel the effects they will, one day.
This book is an absolutely essential read for anyone interested in Swedish political and intellectual life in 2016.
