Wonder what you make of the news that in Sweden a child does NOT have the right to invite just his friends to his birthday party? This is where socialism leads….

"it was supposed to be a party with balloons and a birthday cake but the eight-year-old Swedish boy had not reckoned on his country’s obsession with equality and inclusiveness. Two of his classmates were left off the invitation list – and that, deemed his school – was forbidden and a violation of their rights. The case has been sent to the Swedish parliament and has sparked a national debate about individual liberty. Does a child have the right to invite anyone he wants to a party, even if he risks hurting the feelings  ..sob sob…of those who were left out? These issues are taken seriously in a society that has a very active Children’s Ombudsman and which encourages children to voice their complaints about school and society."


Britain also has this plague of "Children’s Ombudsmen" and I look upon them as a form of activist cancer, out to destroy freedom and liberty. Save the Children say that Sweden is the BEST place in the world to grow up. I don’t think so. It seems to be a State where liberty is crushed, freedom restricted and a child cannot even hold a Birthday Party without the State deciding who will attend it. Shocking stuff. They may have given us Abba and Volvo – but Sweden stands as a warning to us all – the Nanny State exemplar.

  1. It’s ridiculous that the state is bothering with this at all – don’t they have better things to do with taxpayer money?

    Having said that, the parents should just mail the invitations out instead of passing them out at school – avoids hurt feelings and keeps the state/school out of your personal business.

  2. It is a bit mean if the invitations were handed out in class but nonetheless if the party was taking place at the boys home or some other private venue then it is no-one elses business but the boy and his family who goes to the party.

    What next?. Will the state start monitoring private parties to check that the attendees reflect the racial and social make up of the locality ?

  3. this post also falls under the "Kill all the Lawyers" catagory (sorry mahons), but the fact that a lawyer would file such a case, is the outrage also.

    I am sure that some wacko at the schools first reaction was to check their liability

  4. Sweden is one messed up country.

    A lot of the Swedes I’ve met seem sad. Wonder why.
