It is all about leadership
Reader comment on: Sweden: Rape Capital of the West

The interesting thing is that Norway and Finland, neighbors of Sweden in a sense and to some degree culturally related, are light years removed in their cultural development. Years ago I read a delightful book titled OUT-ISLAND DOCTOR by an American who took a job in the Bahamas in 1940 sailing between their many islands to look after the medical needs of villagers and fishing settlements. His patients were all of the same background, former African slaves, but he found a great diversity between the communities which because of a lack of roads on the islands were relatively isolated, reached only by sea. He found some of the settlements to represent ideal communities, healthy, productive, civilized and happy. Ten miles down the shore there might be another community in which settlers were mostly ill, lawless, unproductive and generally despicable. He studied them closely and finally arrived at an answer. The general health of the community depended on leadership. Whenever a "dominant male," so to speak, had integrity and intelligence, the entire community benefited. When there was no leadership or the leader was generally rotten, the community went down the drain. Sweden, obviously is going down the drain because of a negative leadership which is what is always found on the Left.
