In early 2014 Jan Tullberg, a researcher with a background from the Stockholm School of Economics, published a book about the impact mass immigration is having on Sweden. He estimated the costs of immigration to be around 250 billion Swedish kroner annually, roughly 7% of Sweden’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 2013.

This is substantially higher than earlier estimates presented by professor Bo Södersten in 2003 of 40-50 billion kroner annually, and professor Jan Ekberg in 2009 of 45-60 billion kroner annually. The number of immigrants and their descendants keeps rising fast every year. However, Tullberg added certain indirect costs that were largely excluded from previous studies, such as increased crime and special education needs for immigrants.

Rapes vs. immigration rates in Sweden, 1980-2008.  Residence permits granted during the year — The number of reported rapes in the years 1980-2008 (Source Migration Board, BRÅ) Granted residence during the year — (red) Number of reported rapes during the year Original article (Swedish). Grafik Affes Statistik-blogg

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this number suggested by Jan Tullberg. However, if you divide 250 billion kroner by 9.7 million people, it amounts to nearly 26 thousand kroner per inhabitant per year. That’s nearly an average monthly wage in Sweden, before tax.

Yet this sum includes every single person living in Sweden, from babies to recent immigrants. The sum becomes even higher if you divide it by the number productive native citizens. If this is correct, it means that every native Swede starts his year by dedicating all of January to pay for a mass immigration that could render him a minority in his own country in a few decades. Only in February does he start earning money for himself. And these costs keep going up.

Predictably, Jan Tullberg’s book and its explosive content were met largely with silence from the established media, even though 2014 is a year of national elections in Sweden. This was also the case in 2013 when the ethnologist Karl-Olov Arnsberg and the journalist Gunnar Sandelin published their book Invandring och mörkläggning (“Immigration and Cover-up”), where they described sensitive facts about immigration. As the writer Elin Ørjasæter noted in Norway, the book by Arnsberg and Sandelin has sold thousands of copies, despite having met a near-total blackout from the heavily censored Swedish mainstream media.

The May 2013 riots in certain immigrant-dominated suburbs of Stockholm and other Swedish cities raised eyebrows abroad. While I found them disturbing, I cannot say that I was totally surprised by them. I had consistently warned about such a likely outcome under this pen name for nearly a decade.

A year later, there are still fears that similar riots could return at any moment. The underlying problems have not been resolved, and immigration continues at full speed. Other Swedish cities such as Gothenburg (Göteborg) and Malmö have been plagued by public gang shootings and the rise of foreign mafias on a scale that would have been unthinkable in Scandinavia just a few short years ago.

Some of this growing instability is threatening to spill across the border. Sweden’s diversity problems are gradually becoming a security threat to neighboring countries. There have been several documented cases where people from an immigrant background have traveled from Sweden to Norway to carry out crime there.

In 2012, a court found four Muslim men guilty of terrorism for planning an assault on the offices of the newspaper Jyllands-Posten in Copenhagen, Denmark. They were the Swedish citizens Munir Awad, Omar Abdalla Aboelazm and Sahbi Ben Mohamed Zalouti, plus one Tunisian national. These men were arrested in December 2010. Jyllands-Posten has been the intended target of several Islamic-inspired terror attacks since it published some rather innocent cartoons of Islam’s founder Mohammed in September 2005.

This particular plot to “kill as many people as possible” was uncovered and prevented through competent work by the security intelligence agency PET in Denmark together with its Swedish counterpart Säpo. However, there will probably be more such Islamic terror attempts in the future, and it is questionable whether the security services will be able to prevent all of them.

The business daily Finansavisen in Norway has concluded that immigration to Norway cost 210 billion Norwegian kroner under PM Jens Stoltenberg’s left-wing coalition government, between 2005 and 2013. This estimate may well be too low. I a series of carefully researched articles published in 2013,Finansavisen came to the conclusion that the non-Western immigrants who came to Norway in 2012 alone will cost the country 63 billion kroner, when all is said and done. On average, every single non-Western immigrant will cost native tax payers 4.1 million Norwegian kroner, with Somalis topping the list as the most costly nationality.

The only immigrants that were a net gain to the economy came from other Western countries, especially Western Europe and North America. Norway has for instance seen an influx of young Swedish nurses. These are culturally speaking closely-related peoples. It is far more difficult to assimilate Pakistanis, Kurds or Arabs.

The claim that non-Western immigration is beneficial to the economy is just plain wrong. Some big companies may gain short-term benefits from access to cheap labor, and left-wing political parties can import voters from Third World countries, who overwhelmingly tend to vote for left-wing parties. Yet for society as a whole in the long term, non-Western immigration is a net drain, not a net gain. Muslim immigration is a particular liability because it brings with it a whole set of additional problems not usually seen among Chinese or Thai immigrants.

These highly revealing numbers about the huge costs of mass immigration were barely talked about during the national election campaign in Norway in 2013. They were largely met with silence, usually by the very same journalists who claim that is no bias or censorship on subjects related to immigration. The reporters for the state broadcaster NRK were among the worst.

The costs are presumably higher in Sweden than in Norway since Sweden has accepted more non-Western immigrants that any other Nordic country. Moreover, unlike Norway, Sweden does not have substantial wealth derived from oil and natural gas. The large and growing costs related to mass immigration have already become a significant burden on society. The famous Swedish welfare state is no longer what it once was.

A study from 2014 revealed that eight of ten Swedes now believe they won’t get a pension that will cover their living expenses after retiring. At the same time, numbers from early 2014 indicated that Sweden is in the middle of its largest population increase in generations. Most of this is due to immigration from countries such as Somalia and Syria.

Native Swedes are running out of money, partly because this have to fund their own colonization. They will be a minority in their own country in a few decades, if present trends continue, and they are paying lots of money to finance this population replacement. The same could be said about other European countries, from The Netherland or Germany to Britain.

The costs of mass immigration take different forms, direct and indirect. Those that are simplest to measure in monetary terms are social benefits and welfare payments. These have been demonstrated time and again in different studies from different Western countries to be very substantial.

A decline in social trust is another effect. This is harder to measure, but likely to be significant. The Scandinavian and Nordic countries owe parts of their wealth to high levels of social capital, for instance high levels of trust and low levels of corruption. This is a cultural achievement supported by a largely homogeneous populace with shared values. This great reservoir of social capital is now being willfully and systematically squandered by current immigration policies. By rendering the population less homogeneous and mass importing people from more cynical and repressive clannish cultures, you lower levels of trust and increase corruption.

Another type of cost is the rise of organized and violent crime. Many people now feel less safe in the streets, which is a serious negative consequence of open borders policies.

Last, but not least, comes the highest price of all: The loss of homeland. While spending billions needlessly on social benefits for foreigners may be annoying, you cannot put a price tag on being displaced in your own country by other nations and seeing your cultural heritage being disparaged and dismantled.

These negative effects are now being felt by the natives from Greece to Ireland and from Finland to France.

Former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower made a famous speech in 1961 where he warned against the military-industrial complex.

If you put together all those who are today engaged in feeding, sheltering and settling asylum seekers and other newcomers, we are dealing with a sizable industry of people, from interpreters to lawyers. Perhaps we can call this the asylum-industrial complex or the immigration-industrial complex. Huge resources are spent on keeping up an ideology and an immigration policy that could ultimately render the native population a minority in their own country. This is currently taking place not just in one country, but in dozens of countries across an entire continent: Europe.

It will be left to future historians to determine how such a massive and dangerous social experiment on hundreds of millions of people could be presented as something good and inevitable, and how the gradual destruction of the most creative civilization in human history could be lauded as a positive achievement.

Stort tack rksmrgs! Min fadäs kostar mig en ursäkt till hr Reinfeldt. Han och du har bättre minne än jag! Ett lappkast till. Av en dansk vän har jag fått ett stort antal av Fogtdals Danmarkshistorie “Illustreret Tidende” en helt makalös i bild och text om Danmarks historia som kanske inte är så väl känd hos oss svenskar. De stora dragen kan vi ju, men allt det andra… Här får jag t ex en intressant sak om min högt vördade Kierkegaard och hans Regine. Och en bild på den sistnämnda. Vacker kvinna. Sedan ett nummer om Johanne Luise Heiberg och… Read more »

En hastig saltomortal. I svensk radio P1 har man nu på onsdagsmorgonen riksdagsdebatt. Det som slår mig mest är brösttonerna från hr Reinfeldt och det mycket genomskinliga undanglidandet. Om jag inte var för sömnig i början där hr Reinfeldt uttalade sig om krig och fred så satte jag mig ändå käpprakt upp i sängen. Hr Reinfeldt påstår att det sista land vi haft krig med skulle vara – Norge! Om jag missat ordet grannland i sammanhanget ber jag hr statsministern om ursäkt. Men annars måste denne mans historiska kunskaper vara skrala – eller också är han skrämd av Putin. Det… Read more »

Nja. Ratan var den sista krigshandling Sverige var inblandad i på svensk mark. Men 1814 drog den svenska armén under ledning av kronprinsen Jean Baptiste Bernadotte ut i krig mot Norge, där norrmännen slutligen besegrades den 14 augusti 1814 strax utanför Kristiania.

En rimeligt fair anmeldelse af Akkaris bog i en svensk avis – så har man set det med 😉 Ett avsked till islamismen Ledare Ivar Arpi 3 maj 2014 kl 01:26, uppdaterad: 4 maj 2014 kl 23:58 Gästledare Det har gått åtta år sedan Mohammedkarikatyrerna. I dagarna utkom Ahmed Akkari, en av de drivande personerna bakom krisen, med boken ”Min afsked med islamismen”. Akkari var 2005 en av de islamister som agiterade mot Jyllands-Posten. Denna bok är hans avbön och har fått stor uppmärksamhet i Danmark och Norge. Efter att karikatyrerna publicerades i Jyllands-Posten den 30 september 2005 dröjde det… Read more »

Islamkritik lockar invandrargrupper till Sverigedemokraterna http://www.svd.se/kultur/islamkritik-lockar-invandrare-till-sd_3499946.svd … Paula Bieler konstaterar nöjt att SD börjar bli mer accepterat. Hon är glad att public service inte längre talar om ”främlingsfientliga” Sverigedemokraterna. Hon talar om vikten av att man som invandrare blir svensk, men utan att riktigt definiera vad svenskhet är. – Jag tror på assimilation och på nationalstaten. Människor som kommer till Sverige ska känna till den svenska kulturen och bli en del av vårt samhälle. [!!!] Är då ens Paula Bieler själv tillräckligt svensk? Hennes föräldrar kommer från Polen. Farmor var en lokal ”kommunistpamp”. Pappa är jude och flydde till Sverige… Read more »

Det er uhyggeligt at se et land stille og roligt begå selvmord, måske ikke kun et land men et helt kontinent.
Skulle et land forsøge at holde sig uden for denne folkevandring, så vil det efterhånden blive sværere og sværere at holde stand, når nu nabolandene efterhånden bliver mere og mere multietniske.

Tycker att Fjordman skriver lite som åt något slags thrillerskapande håll, eller som någon form av spänningsskapande, med en slags fiendebeskrivning, som främst verkar vilja rikta sig mot alla farliga invandrare, och främst och först då kanske mot islam. Men de som nog egentligen är de farligaste människorna för befolkningarna i de skandinaviska nationalstaterna och i övriga nordeuropeiska nationalstater, det är nog ändå främst deras egna politiker och journalister? Dessa som tillsammans med ett internationaliserat, multinationellt och globaliserat näringsliv, samt bankindustri och massmedieindustri, livsmedelsindustri, musikindustri osv., vill trycka på och förespråka eller propagera för en överdriven invandrings- och folkblandningspolitik?

Hvad der undrer mig mere er, hvor er den svenske (og også øvrige europæiske fagbevægelser) fagbevægelse i dette politiske spil?
Det er først og fremmest deres medlemmers tilværelse og beboelsesområder, der ødelægges ved den massive import af mellemøstlige og afrikanske “flygtninge”.
Omkostningerne ødelægger ethvert tidligere socialt gode, man har opnået gennem tiderne, skoler, sygehuse osv. Overalt må der skæres ned for at betale for vanviddet, og det er den almindelige borger og arbejder, der betaler via skatten.
Hvorfor kæmper fagbevægelserne ikke længere for deres medlemmers interesser?

T. Snorrason:…”Hvorfor kæmper fagbevægelserne ikke længere for deres medlemmers interesser?”… Förmodligen beror detta på att stora delar av LO och fackföreningsrörelsen själva är s.k. – socialister -, och – socialdemokrater – . De är itutade att – …”Internationalen för alla lycka bär”…, osv? Dvs. de är själva fullproppade med floskler om – internationell solidaritet -, och att – arbetarrörelsen skall s.k. vara – solidarisk- , och ställa upp och hjälpa alla arbetare också på ett internationellt plan? De är kanske i själva verket egentligen kommunister, och på så vis internationalister, och har ingen känsla kvar för det naturliga för människan,… Read more »

Ps. Kompletterande och korr av tidigare text: …”De förstår inte bättre om psykologiska och existentiella faktorer om och kring människan som just – varelse – ? Om människans behov av identitet, av hemmakänslor och nödvändiga känslor av att kunna känna igen – sig själv – , och kunna känna samhörighet till, känna identifiering till, de människor som liknar dem själva.”..

Ja, 3F burde virkelig være mere kritisk. De kan se, hvor galt det kan gå i multikulturelle lande med stor indvandring af fattige ufaglært som eks. USA. England følger vel godt med. Jeg har altid været stolt over, at ufaglærte i Danmark kunne have en acceptabel levestandard, når jeg i udlandet har fortalt om Danmark.
Jeg tror virkelig angsten for at falde ved siden af fællesskabet i LO og dermed også med Socialdemokratiet er en kæmpe drivkraft. Ingen vil lyde “fremmedfjendske”. Denne frygt ligger og lurer konstant.

Hvad er der “fremmedfjendsk” i at sikre sine medlemmer bedst mulige levevilkår?
Det er vel, hvad man er medlem af en fagforening for?
Den import af fremmede, der finder sted, er for størstedelen ubrugelig som arbejdskraft – eller direkte vil ikke i arbejde under diverse “religiøse påskud – og bidrager dermed ikke til fællesskabet og forringer dermed det såkaldte velfærdssamfund.
LO bør snart indse, at det ikke har mange interesser sammen med vor tids Socialdemokrati og SF, i hvert fald har LO´s medlemmer ikke.
Måske en årsag til de gamle fagforeningers stadige frafald af medlemmer.
