Living in a smallish free market country, I know that the decisions of the leaders of the US, the EU and Russia may have a far greater effect on my life than the decisions of the Swedish government, so I try to stay on top of things, and since Putin managed to destabilize US politics, things have gotten far more stressful.
Maybe that stress is the result of the socialist/globalist EU agenda importing what...10% of your population in poor, benefit seeking economic refugees?
All those poor people absorbing the affordable housing, straining those glorious socialist benefits that worked much better when you had a prosperous and motivated population all contributing to society.
Is "All Mans Right" still working for the rural population of Sverige?
Well, yeah. Look at history. The countries with the most immigration tend to be the ones that perform the best.
Before the US started to regulate immigration they were the envy of the world. Since they started regulating it their economy has started to stagnate.
I believe in free markets, including the freedom of movement. Border control and tariffs just cause inefficiencies and suffering.
Yet the EU has very little to do with immigration in Sweden, apart from many former East Block countries (Poland, Hungary, Slovakia) within the EU not pulling their weight when it comes to accepting refugees, thus causing more of them to end up in Sweden.
As for Allemamsrätten ( https://visitsweden.com/about-the-right ... ic-access/
) it still works fairly well, but some foreigners (and/or immigrants) don’t really understand the limitations. You can pitch a tent pretty much anywhere, except in someone’s garden or a cultivated field, but just for one night. If you plan to stay longer, you should ask for permission first. Also, you are allowed to access pretty much all land, except for private gardens and cultivated fields, but you should leave it in the same pristine condition that you found it. You can’t leave garbage behind.
It’s a big land though. Sweden is bigger than Japan, and they’re like 150 million.
We’re just 10 million, so there is still plenty of room.
