Committed to the void between the guardian and frasradikaler

Stefan Löfven spoke beautifully about the value of education in a social democratic congress that otherwise highlighted the movement's liberal bildningslucka.

Before congress called for Daniel Färm, on behalf of the socialist think-tank the Time a ”clearer frihetsperspektiv in the social democratic development of ideas” ( DN Debate 19/3), for the same present a report to micromanage people's lifestyles with the tax on sugar, a smoke-free Sweden in 2030, and more holidays to the one who trains on a regular basis.

the social democrats are so weak that they must be forced to go along with the situation.

Had mäster Palm been in life, he had probably left the social democracy once more, as he did when the party in 1911, took a stand to totalförbjuda alcohol: ”For with the democratic legislation mean we are not law what people shall eat, and drink.” Also, Per Albin Hansson said that the welfare state must accommodate ”a measure of freedom”. Today's socialists have a lot to work on when it comes to frihetsperspektiv and to let people make their own decisions.

the Reformists, together with the various interest groups are the most vocal critics of välfärdsföretag and liberal reforms among januariavtalets 73 points, in particular the free rents for new construction.

Independent commentators have made much of this vänsterkritik. According to Tomas Ramberg of the Swedish Radio ( 23/3) are the democrats so weak that they had to go along with the situation. It could also be formulated as that the social democrats are so weak that they must be forced to go along with the situation.

been well so capable as the bourgeois parties of the liberal reforms. ”It was not only the Centre party struck guard if returned two days later) in all of its perverse effects. Also the Moderates and people's Party lost faith in the market economy blessings as soon as a åkerlapp appeared in their visual field,” writes Kjell-Olof Feldt in ”All these days” on the liberalisation of agricultural policy, the social democrats initiated during his time as finance minister. Feldt was also liberalize credit and foreign exchange markets, and initiated the major tax reform in 1990, who had the exemptions and deductions, and lowered income taxes.

Worn between the guardian and frasradikaler seems to this liberal reformist skills have been lost.

Worn between the guardian and frasradikaler seems to this liberal reformist skills have been lost. Despite the much talked about ”Fredrik Strage effect” – storstadsväljare like DN's nöjeskrönikör voted on the S 2018 in order not to give influence to the SD, though they really have sympathies for liberalism and capitalism – so attracts the social democrats no longer as many middle - and högerväljare as before, a development that brought väljarbasen to the left throughout the 2000's.

not so many mittenväljare to fight on, which most likely reflects the middle-quality and performance in recent years. The academic excellence of the social democrats for many decades, attracted to work in the kanslihus and management – with names such as Assar Lindbeck, Ingemar Ståhl, Inga - Britt Ahlenius, Nils Lundgren and Klas Eklund has nicely expressed not its counterpart in the day.

in Sweden We have lived at the impact of major deregulations in the 1980s and 1990s, not the least of telecom and it, but the effect tapers off and then reforms has been for fallow. A social democracy that is not with the desire, skills and maybe a little of the rapture Stefan Löfven talked about can take the necessary liberal reforms of, inter alia, employment and the housing market is a loss for the whole country.
