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.
