New Book Examines Swedish Socialism and its Repercussions on World Politics
Though far from a military superpower, the kingdom of Sweden might still endanger your personal liberty due to its corps of diplomats and social planners. Sweden has recently made international headlines after having both jailed 40-year-old Christer Johansson for having taken his son Domenic back from state custody to see his family, a boy who was seized last year right as his family was about to leave the country; and also this November having sentenced a Christian couple to nine months in prison for having used spanking as a part of their child-rearing, also taking their children into foster care indefinitely in spite of loving family relationships.
"If Americans and other free peoples of the world aren't vigilant in defence of their liberty, Swedish law might one day become their law too"

Swedish diplomats are hard at work within the United Nations and other international agencies enforcing their own idiosyncratic views on such matters as what party is responsible for a child's upbringing - the family or the state - and also gun control, a matter that was the focus of UN resolution 55/255, the firearms protocol, commented on here. The latest development in Swedish gun control efforts is a proposal in a government bill that would require all prospective gun owners to undergo mandatory psychiatric examination. If Americans and other free peoples of the world aren't vigilant in defence of their liberty, Swedish law might one day become their law too.
To let potential readers judge for themselves what to make of this global governance, Daniel Hammarberg has now released into print a book which until now was only available as an e-book; a 466 page tome by the name of "The Madhouse: A critical study of Swedish society," which at its basic level provides a comprehensive glimpse into Swedish society, but which does so in a structured and entertaining way, thoroughly referenced as well. Sweden is held in high regard in much of the western world today, yet few people are aware of just how much this image is a product of a dedicated public relations campaign on the part of the Swedish government. Critical accounts of this society rarely surface today, hence this book just might become the be-all and end-all of scrutinising this hollow facade.
Author Daniel writes both from academic familiarity with the matter at hand as well as from personal experiences with this creeping totalitarianism in contemporary Swedish society. The rule of law means significantly less here than in other western countries, and authorities exercise their power through far-reaching general clauses in order to accomplish political aims. For anyone who thought it'd be a natural right to raise children as long as they don't abuse them, and to keep animals as pets as long as they take proper care of them, they'll have to reconsider - the government here frequently takes children into state custody for simply atrocious reasons, which Daniel covers at great length in the book; and also included is the story of how a government inspector came into Daniel's home to see how he was keeping his two cats, after an animal rights activist had called the authorities on him due to supposed "neglect" of these cats. The legislation concerning pets here would be outright hilarious to read, had it not been for the fact that it's legally binding and can get offenders imprisoned for not abiding by it.
Daniel has made it his calling to enlighten the world on the state of Swedish society today, which includes working with the Nordic Committee for Human Rights; stepping in as a guest writer on the Friends of Domenic Blog; creating informative Youtube videos on such matters as Swedish gun laws, child welfare policies etc, videos that have grown quite popular; as well as making a three-hour long documentary entitled The Socialist Utopia, available for free. The main hub for his online presence is his website at danielhammarberg.com.
At this location, Daniel personally introduces the public to the book and discusses the themes it covers.
