Gunnar and Alva Myrdal, the architects behind the Swedish welfare state

Today I was invited to a US college class to speak about the view on the family in Sweden. I started by talking about Gunnar and Alva Myrdal, the architects behind the Swedish welfare state, free schools, free healthcare and their wonderful underlying social fascist ideals. Spiced it up with a few quotes from their famous book, such as

“The task of prophylactic social policy is to create a better human material and improve the quality of the population stock.”

“Most important is obviously the radical cleansing out of individuals highly unfit for life, which can be achieved by sterilization.”

“Schools must be used as propaganda tools: not only to create more knowledgeable and responsible parents in the next generation, which is important in itself, but also to let children raise up their own parents, a method which has proven effective.”

When I finally explained that home schooling was a criminal offence which can be rewarded with prison time and forced adoption of the children, they looked at me in horror.

I was pleased to see them so quickly cured of their socialist collectivist illusions of the happy welfare state. The students even asked me to come back and spend more time with them.
