There will be massive unemployment, and tens of millions of people will feel angry, scared and humiliated, betrayed by the system, by society and by their own democratic leaders. This is a situation in some ways similar to the Great Depression that led to the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s. Is this where we are heading once again, with fear, rising Fascism and political assassinations? The difference is that the “Jewish threat” in the 1930s was entirely fictional, whereas the “Islamic threat” now is very real. However, it is precisely the trauma caused by the events of 70 years ago that is clouding our judgement this time, since any talk at all about the threat posed by Muslim immigration or about preserving our own culture is being dismissed as “the same rhetoric as the Nazis used against the Jews.” Europeans have been taught to be so scared of our own shadows that we are incapable of seeing that darkness can come from the outside, too. Maybe Europe will burn again, in part as a belated reaction to the horrors of Auschwitz.

Bull. I am European, and the islamic threat does simply not exist in Europe. Especially in Sweden. There are a few nutcases here and there, but nothing serious as a threat.
As for Sweden's ecomic system collapsing...lol. Pure speculation. A few immigrants can not bring down a strong economic system like Sweden's.
Please get over the fact that socialdemocracy can be a good system and try to solve your problems with the Mexicans first...!
