Now we are crossing the border …

Today I left Iceland for my old motherland – Sweden. This green, luminous, and beautiful country – torn apart like a sinking ship due to socialism, welfareism, 1968ism – and all of this in combination with a steady stream of refugees all wanting their equal share of the cake.  You  can all take a wild guess on for how long that will last.

Today I was crossing the border. More people ought to be allowed to do that. Freedom of movement, mobility rights or the right to travel is a human rights concept which should be accounted as a natural right for all human beings. Everyone should have the right to choose where to live in the world and where to seek for his or her own happiness – without interference from the state! BUT, and this is what Sweden does wrong, no one has an obligation to feed another man, nor can he force another man to feed him. Everyone should have the right to move wherever he or she wants but it is always only up to the same person to fulfill his/her own dream – no other can do it for them.

I had some arguments with the staff at the airport today, both in Sweden and in Iceland. Why does it have to be such a fuzz to travel? *sigh*
