To ”debate” with invandrarfientliga forces will not help, it notes the author Bjørn Stærk in an op-ed piece in the DN Culture. His home country, Norway, has been tried. The result? The progress party in government since 2013, and their representatives have just become bolder and coarser the longer the time has gone. Now last welcomed a proposal to ban islam.
”The radical will be not less radical to be heard. It seems to me rather as if it is the moderate that move and are gradually becoming more open to nationalism, western chauvinism and islamhat. The outer edge puts the premises and move the borders of the normal,” writes Bjørn Stærk. The borders be moved regardless of how the reality looks like, you can add, for this is not about facts but about emotions.
The invandrarfientliga may be good at making noise. But ”the people”, they do not represent.
”the Swedish state”, which means that take in many immigrants. But it is not immigration that is the main problem. It is the integration, and at that point hold Sweden to fail. For in utanförskapsområdena escalates the violence, and it is not primarily immigrants, it is all about, without their children. They can not ”sent home”, for Sweden is their home, they were born here, but grew up in isolated enclaves.
The vast majority understand the difference, and realize that no one will be happier to hate blacks, muslims, jews or others – at the very least haters themselves. But it would also have an answer to the question about the integration.
both Sweden and Norway can learn from the nordic state: To yield to a question is to allow the most extreme take it and shift the focus. The debate must therefore be carried – but in reasonable proportions. For the invandrarfientliga may be good at making noise. But ”the people”, they do not represent. And power, it may the first when others give it to them.
