The future

This week I read a columnist article in metro that made me kind of happy and excited to see what the future holds. I wasn't emotionally affected by the catastrophical results of the Swedish elections, but I wasn't hopeful that there was a different future waiting after those coming four years of right wing rule. Today the European map is very blue, and at some places even brown. Why do people think that we have evolved so far socially that what happened 70 years ago in Germany can't happen again? It can happen again and this film shows it. I recommend it a lot. Go see it!

However, back to the columnist. He wrote that the socialist parties around Europe had started to move. Instead of trying to imitate the right wing ideologies they were once again trying to be what they are; truly socialist. I'm not making any secret as to where I stand politically and I'm not planning on changing that anytime soon, although people have a way of telling me that I'm left wing simply because I'm a university student. Like it's some kind of adolescent thing that I will grow out of.

Anyway here's the column for anyone interested. It's in Swedish ofc.

And now I was going to post a video, but incidentally YouTube has ofc deleted it. Don't you just looove copyright? -.-'


What's the first thought in your head after reading this? Let me know!
