John Gustavsson: I am a nationalist. More specifically, when people ask about my ideology I tell them I’m a national conservative.
John Gustavsson gives three reasons that he believe explain the left’s tendency for violence as well as other undemocratic political tactics.
As you may know, I am a supporter of the UK Independence Party (a right-winged party that would like to see the UK leave the European Union). All over Europe we’re about to hold elections to the European Parliament between the 22nd and the 25th. The UK votes today the 22nd, while Sweden and most […]
The European Union is growing ever stronger. More and more power is concentrated into the hands of unelected bureaucrats. The Eurozone crisis played into the hands of the elite and gave them an excuse to strengthen their hold on the individual countries. I’ve written about all of that before, which is why today, I would […]
This post is in many ways a sequel to my last post, “Why Socialism Needs Christianity”, in which I discussed how Christianity helped make the welfare state function in Sweden. I mentioned in my last post that the Social Democrats have dominated Swedish politics – they held power from 1932 to 1976! That is, to […]
Yes, I know that statement may seem contradictory at first. First of all, for those who don’t know me – perhaps you found this post through Google – I need to clarify that I am not in any way a socialist (though I am a Christian). I feel the need to clarify that because I […]
Even those of us who are not big fans of the Star Wars enterprise are usually familiar with a few famous lines from the movies. The most famous (and most misquoted) line is undoubtedly “No. I am your father”. Other classics include “May the force be with you” and “Do or do not. There is […]
The European Union has a number of very important tasks – facilitating trade and keeping peace in Europe being among the most important. Whether the European Union is the reason why European countries haven’t engaged in warfare against one another since the end of the Second World War is an interesting question (if you want […]
Seeing how successful my first post on this topic was, I’m unable to resist the temptation to write a follow-up – so here we go. For those of you too lazy to read my first post, here’s a recap: Spain is introducing fascist laws to strike down against a region known as Catalonia (mostly known […]
How many of you have heard of the People’s Party in Spain? How many of you have even a rudimentary understanding of Spanish politics? No-one? That’s OK, I’ll give you a primer: Spain is going fascist. You think I’m exaggerating? Well, keep reading and if you still disagree after you’ve finished, leave a comment. Let’s […]
Before you decide to read this, please be aware that this is going to be my most controversial post so far. Today’s topic is the patriarchy, which is a controversial subject – especially among conservatives! What’s even more controversial is my view of the patriarchy, or rather I should say traditional gender roles; namely, that […]
One thing that we can all agree on is that Obamacare has not lived up to expectations. Even the most ardent supporters admit as much. The question everyone is asking now is: Can Obamacare recover its popularity? After all, the ACA didn’t use to be as unpopular as it is today – sure, the country […]
This article is a follow-up to my last post which dealt with why the government shutdown is a mistake. This time, I’m going to dig deeper and analyze the underlying problem with the Tea Party movement’s perception of reality. Now before I begin, I feel it’s necessary to remind everyone that policy-wise, I agree with […]
The ongoing government shutdown is a big mistake. I realize that this is a controversial topic, and if you disagree with me, by all means write an angry comment in the field below. In this article, I’m going to cover two points: Why the shutdown is a bad idea, and why Republicans shut down the […]
Again I must apologize for my inactivity lately – my education has taken most of the time and my job search has taken the rest of it. If you’ve been following the mainstream media news, you know the score: It’s morning again in America. The deficit is falling fast, growth is returning, hundreds of thousands […]
In this post I return to one of my favorite topics: Behavioral economics, and how we can use it to argue against leftist policies and in favor of a small government. A while ago I read an excellent book – “The upside of irrationality” by Dan Ariely, a behavioral economist at Duke University who pretty […]
