My only issue is that the expression on the statue looks fairly calm. The lady in the photo is fuckin PISSED.

I love this photo so much. It’s such a shame that the neo-Nazis are in parliament now.

The fact that, even with the advent of digital records, humanity seems incapable of retaining the lessons of history gives me a a pessimistic outlook for our future.

It only took a single human lifespan for fascism to be on the rise again in Germany, and for their former victims to be undertaking their own final solution.

Same goes for the Great Depression here in the US, only took 50 years for the Reagan Revolution to hand all the power right back to the avarice ruled profiteer class to thunderous American applause, and many still act confused as to why that's a catastrophe, as if bread lines and children/seniors literally starving to death in the streets, and yes we're barreling back to that, was some kind of a fairy tale.

People are perfectly capable of retaining the lessons of history - that's why they invented propaganda techniques to prevent people from doing so.

We really should have understood television when we had the chance. Before it escaped and jumped in our pockets.

Update to the update: she was carrying a solid brick in her purse that day. (I wish.)

[-] [email protected] 19 points 1 month ago

Not that day, but everyday afterwards. Just in case.

I don't get why anyone would want to be part of those losers.

We won a war against them, they lost. So they are by definition losers.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

"want". No, no one else will take them.

Correction - they expelled the Nazis that couldn't afford Armani business suits.

Edit: My comment is wrong. I misread the article while drugged up after a surgery... Thanks to the others below for correcting me!

It bothers me that this calls. WWII era Nazis "Neo-Nazis". "Neo" means "new". The woman hit one of the original Nazis, not a Neo-Nazi.

This is wrong. That was obviously a neo nazi.

Sweden has a very dark side despite being part of "socialist Scandinavia". They have had quite an influential fascist group and sympathisers during World War 2, which is partly responsible for Sweden not being invaded by Nazis. But overtime that influence diminished. Sweden Democrats, the current ruling party, has neo-Nazi roots and was openly racist. But it was in the 1980s that they reinvented themselves and cut loose brazenly bigoted members, while still being adjacent to the far-right anti-immigration beliefs. They bide their time and manicured their image and refined their flavour to be palatable for the mainstream. Then slowly and surely, they have gained enough parliamentary seats to be influential and eventually come into power.

If Europe does not learn from Sweden, then the entire continent will be swallowed again by fascism. Globalisation has been mismanaged. You can keep calling someone racist or bigots; but jobs have been outsourced and locals now live in rust belts without future prospects. Crime rates have been up because of underfunding public services. There is housing crisis because building social housing programme stopped and locals feel furious that refugees and immigrants get accommodations, instead of them. These conditions make fertilisers for the far-right to come into power.

Calling SD the current ruling part is very misleading. While they are quite big and are in the government, they don't rule alone.

They are "allies" with other parties to make up a majority.

The prime minister for example is not from SD.

Also Sweden isn't what most people call socialist, it's social democratic. There is a very big difference between what most consider to be socialism and social democracy.

Hopefully she had an anvil in her purse.

Literally the nicest thing she could do in the moment.
