Apparently Palme's Sweden was particularly hospitable to political refugees from Pinochet's Chile.

Missed that and Thailand the first time I took this quiz. Got them both this time, but only in a scramble to guess random countries at the end.

I know Norway has gotten many Chilean immigrants (I live here), so I thought it might be the same for Sweden.

Post-Christian countries have so embraced "tolerance" as their new secular religion, that they will import enormous numbers of foreigners that will all but replace their own native societies. Very sad.

I’d like to see your proof for how tolerance is a “secular religion,” whatever that means. The rest of your argument boils down to “Foreigners are gross!” Just as biological diversity improves a population’s chances of survival, so too does cultural diversity allow for a greater exchange of ideas and a furthering of societal progress.

I'd like to see proof of how biological diversity (not just more people, but the diversity part) improves a population's survival along with cultural diversity. If that's the case then why aren't Asian and African countries accepting diverse migrants?

Second that!!! @WanHuangdi And to you @hikikomori, I believe they would but nobody wants to live there because western countries have a better economy (because they capitalize devoloping countries)

"Post-christian country", "secular religion", "foreigners replacing native society" - it is almost magnificent how tropes like that together with Flat earth, anti-germ theory, antivaxxers etc. reappear every 100 years or so. Even though we live in the time most secular and most restrictive on immigration rights. It just seems to be some kind of automated reflex of the spinal cord.

In fairness the reason why immigration is more restricted than before (in the places where it is) is probably because more people are otherwise able and willing to immigrate than before. And in the case of the United States, because the country is no longer almost completely empty (except for some Native Americans who they were quite happy to displace).

'Exchange of ideas' means reintroducing the old fashioned religious dogma that these countries have already tried so hard to dissolve? As for the 'post christian' 'trope' dismissive...a pretty anti intellectual way to dismiss glaring changes to Europes demographics. Surely it makes sense to consider the effect of these changes...for history has shown us time and time again that it is seldom a smooth process and often has bad outcomes.

@hikikomori In biology, diversity within populations helps to ensure survival as the mixing of genes leads to more mutations. Thus, if a disease were to occur, there are likely to be some sample with gene frequencies that are unaffected and carry on the bloodline. In society, interchange of cultures often facilitates technological progress. Should Italians only use Roman Numerals (but not Arabic ones) because the latter came from a different “culture”? They would still only be counting things instead of performing advanced calculations. How do you think Arabic Numerals reached Europe? It originated in India but only came to Europe through the movement of ideas, goods, and people. Many ideas were spread through violence, but in our modernizing world, people are increasingly doing so through discussion and debate, instead of just lopping their opponent’s head off and blaming it on the Vikings.

@hikikomori You also asked why Asian and African countries aren’t accepting more immigrants. Just because diversity is good for societal health doesn’t mean that everybody recognizes it. I would encourage these countries to diversify as well. It’s more difficult to attract diverse immigrants when you are a developing country with high income inequality, poor sanitation, and a myriad of other unattractive factors that keep large populations of Whites and Hispanics from wanting to move there. Also, China and India are dealing with overpopulation at the moment. Hope this answers your question!

@lazydaisee If you build up a government with a strong constitution that protects everybody’s rights, then it shouldn’t matter which demographic happens to be in the majority at the moment. If tomorrow the USA became a 51% Catholic and Hispanic nation, I personally wouldn’t care because the rights of minority populations are still protected by our constitution from a tyrannical majority. If they elect leaders that threaten our freedoms, then we could protest and trust that the courts stop unconstitutional acts. Every country is different, so I understand being more perplexed if your constitution is not as robust. Strong democratic institutions can and should protect the freedoms of all.

...Because it is so contrary to the Christian spirit to allow people who are living in war zones or areas with high levels of poverty the opportunity to move to places that are doing better. It is clearly stated in the Bible that the maintenance of Scandinavian culture is preferable to this, even though it is apparently "post-Christian" anyway.

It will end in tears...I hope Sweden has the sense to reeducate many of these migrants and encourages them to leave behind the attitudes that helped destroy their own communities.

Yep, like the “attitudes” of being colonized by imperialist powers, being ruled over by dictators, and then being bombed to oblivion by the USA. I do partially agree in that I hope the Swedish education system can help people from often traumatic and deeply religious backgrounds integrate into a secular and democratic society. I just think that being condescending towards them and blaming all of their countries’ problems on its (usually powerless) citizenry won’t help in that regard.
