Forewords to this post
If anyone of readers thinks that I am a racist he/she is wrong. At the moment I am a single but my latest girlfriend was a beautiful black woman. Our story ended because she didn’t want to leave her European homeland and I didn’t want to leave mine but the situation in Europe is absurd at the moment. It forced me to publish this post. European Union has messed up almost everything it could. It has signed agreements (Schengen Agreement) that make it possible to come here almost without any kind of control and at the same time it supports free trade which is the cause of great unemployment in Europe. The youth unemployment in Euro area was in 2014 23.8 percent and in Spain 53.2 percent. All the Mediterranean countries are under the heavy pressure of immigration. The policy of EU must be changed or this continent will sink down. I don’t believe that many of Euro area’s citizens are willing to do work cheaper than workers in the cheap labor Asian countries. In this situation it is the only chance to get rid of the unemployment, if EU doesn’t start to protect its own industry (protective duties) and at the same time pushing for the equal pay for equal job worldwide so that there is no need for migration.
The other reason aside from the statistics was that some European politicians make things worse and more obscure by adding all kind of sentimental crap to this situation. This is not the racial question and this situation can’t be solved out by referring to the historical events. Those references are nothing else but burying the heads into the sand. This situation is too much those people or they are afraid of losing their faces if they admit that they have made mistakes which have caused this hurl-burly where the right hand doesn’t know where the left hand is.
Swedish Minister Raps Finland over Regugees
Swedish minister Margot Wallström has sharply criticized Finland’s refugee policy, noting that Sweden took in more than 70,000 Finnish war children during the Second World War. The comment shows that she remembers the history very selectively. She doesn’t remember that Finland has been the bumper between Russian and Sweden beginning from the year 1150 and we are here even today. Every since till year 1809 that country has done nothing but took advantage of Finland soil and its citizens. Shortly Finland was Sweden’s colony. It also seems to me that some Swedes still take us like we were their subjects who should show endlessly respect to our masters.
During the Second World Sweden indeed took those 70000 Finnish children there but what we had been needed in 1939 against Red Army was their army even this once for almost 800 years when we did mostly all their fighting. (A great part of the soldiers in Swedish army has always been Finns. The famous of them are Hakkapelitans). The high and pure Sweden didn’t do that but stayed out of the war and in order to be in good terms with Nazis let them use Swedish metals (1939-40) for the German bombs. We can only imagine how many children died alone in London because of Swedish iron ore. After the Winter War when Finland tried to get back its soil in Karelia by allying with German some Swedish blamed Finns for Nazism. These kind of pompous words show again how every now and then some Swedes thinks that they are on the much higher level than Finns in a way which comes very close to racism. Still the truth is that if Sweden hadn’t avoided the responsibility during the Second World War all Scandinavian countries would have suffered less. The most important thing to them was to protect their own sweet country.
Against this historical background, it is very odd that Minister Wallström refers to the history. It looks like the emotion has placed the brains. I wonder could this unwise behavior rise up from the truth that Sweden is indecisive: it can’t admit that their uncontrolled immigration policy is a mistake because it might sound racist. In this dead end, some Swedish politicians and celebrities like Blondinbella doesn’t make up anything but accusing other countries. Now in their teeth is Finland, because they short sided thought that Finland owes them something. If Minister Margot Wallström were really concerned about refugees and not Sweden she would pick up her words more carefully.
After all this pulls, let’s come back to this day. The fact, at least in my opinion, is that Europe can’t take anymore immigrants without jeopardizing the decent life for its citizens. This statement has nothing racist because more crowds will jeopardize also those immigrants’ lives that already are in Europe. The controlled immigration policy means that we can unite families and accept only those people who really are in danger. On the other hand we must realize that there are countries where the living is so painful that people want to leave their homes. The immigration is a result not a reason. If we only deal with the result, the reason, inhumanity, flourishes freely. Of course, there are many reasons for people being on move but I think that the globalism is the worst of all. The globalism is a misleading term because the question is about the fewbalism. The handful of people transfers their factories into the cheap labor countries. Unfortunately some countries are ready for coercive means in order to make workers work almost without any wage.
Now some of you might think that we are talking about socialism but democracy doesn’t mean that. Actually democracy is a thing that missed in socialist countries. The democracy is the only principle that can guarantee people’s happiness just where they are. This means that all over the world people must be paid decently for what they are doing. Against this background taking immigrants is a child’s play. When we want equal salary for equal work worldwide our opponent is the most powerful one. It might look overwhelming but in the long run also the richest people will gain from the human dignity. People’s happiness might cost more money but happy people are the most productive workers.
Minister Margot Wallström how about this instead of accusing others. I wouldn’t be surprised if you got a friend from Mr Bill Gates. Yes, I am in as well millions and millions other every day silent humans. By the way, I am a child of refugee’s by myself. While you took some of our children in Sweden Russia took my family’s home and fields. I have always felt that I don’t live in my homeland so much Karelia differs from the Actual Finland. Just thought about the situation where over 400.000 Karelians were leaving their homes, after lived there over a thousand years, having with them what they have gathered in only a few hours. Some of them had a cow and a cart, many even that. Even I wasn’t born in Karelia I always see this pain in my late mother, grandmother and uncles and other relatives’ eyes. The farm house which was their first stop in Finland they lived in a warehouse and the first served dinner was the frozen apples.

PS As of 2010, 1.33 million people or 14.3% of the inhabitants in Sweden were foreign-born, source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_to_Sweden. These people have children who are born in Sweden so that every fourth citizen most likely is not a Swede at the moment. Of course it is their own decision how many immigrants they take in but it doesn’t give them right to accuse any other country. If Swedes are in peace with their own policy they should keep on taking people in but if they are unhappy with their policy, they have to do what a man has to do instead of asking others keep on doing something they can’t do anymore, as it looks like now.
