Once again something I'm having trouble finding straight talk about. Hand-waving or exaggerating, little in-between.
Yes. All comparative criminal statistics are bullshit, because of different definitions and recording practices. Rape in Sweden is no different.

"In Sweden there has been this ambition explicitly to record every case of sexual violence separately, to make it visible in the statistics," she says.

"So, for instance, when a woman comes to the police and she says my husband or my fiance raped me almost every day during the last year, the police have to record each of these events, which might be more than 300 events. In many other countries it would just be one record - one victim, one type of crime, one record."

xxxxxxxxxxxx

"There might also be some increase in actual crime because of societal changes. Due to the internet, for example, it's much easier these days to meet somebody, just the same evening if you want to. Also, alcohol consumption has increased quite a lot during this period.

"But the major explanation is partly that people go to the police more often, but also the fact that in 2005 there has been reform in the sex crime legislation, which made the legal definition of rape much wider than before."

So my previous explanation still stands even if Skeeve somehow was one a little "prematurely".

Uh, no. You just described right wing populism. There is left wing populism too.
It's "pea-can", man.

Gender quotas and the crisis of the mediocre man
...
Our study provides a unique window on quotas and, at the same time, pushes forward the measurement of competence in political selection. It uses the fact that, in 1993, Sweden’s Social Democratic party voluntarily introduced a strict gender quota for its candidates. In internal discussions of the reform, the party’s Women’s branch observed that some men were more critical than others. The quota became known colloquially as the “Crisis of the Mediocre Man,” since the incompetent men had the most to fear from an influx of women into politics.
...
While we have focused on politics, the results may also be relevant for judging gender quotas in other organisations.
...
Many firms have a history of male-dominated leadership and are sometimes accused of having “locker-room” mentalities and cozy selection rules. These reinforce the selection of men, and leaders may feel comfortable being surrounded by non-threatening mediocrity. Just as in politics, therefore, a quota has the potential to undercut the dominance of a mediocre elite.
As if politicians are typically anything but mediocre to begin with...

And yet another reason Sweeden is...
...wait for it...
a success, yes, a flaming success!

There are some nice data sets here: https://www.indexmundi.com/g/g.aspx?v=27&c=sw&l=en

This is the data for: Net Migration, notice the "surge" from 2013 to 2014...

Code: Select all

Country	2004	2005	2006	2007	2008	2009	2010	2011	2012	2013	2014
Sweden	1.67	1.67	1.66	1.66	1.66	1.66	1.65	1.65	1.65	1.64	5.46

Compare this with the population growth rate

Code: Select all

Country	2004	2005	2006	2007	2008	2009	2010	2011	2012	2013	2014
Sweden	0.18	0.17	0.16	0.16	0.16	0.16	0.16	0.16	0.17	0.18	0.79

And the Total fertility rate (children born/woman)

Code: Select all

Country	2004	2005	2006	2007	2008	2009	2010	2011	2012	2013	2014
Sweden	1.66	1.66	1.66	1.66	1.67	1.67	1.67	1.67	1.67	1.67	1.88

Note:
Definition of Total fertility rate: This entry gives a figure for the average number of children that would be born per woman if all women lived to the end of their childbearing years and bore children according to a given fertility rate at each age. The total fertility rate (TFR) is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the crude birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population change in the country. A rate of two children per woman is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total numbers. Rates above two children indicate populations growing in size and whose median age is declining. Higher rates may also indicate difficulties for families, in some situations, to feed and educate their children and for women to enter the labor force. Rates below two children indicate populations decreasing in size and growing older. Global fertility rates are in general decline and this trend is most pronounced in industrialized countries, especially Western Europe, where populations are projected to decline dramatically over the next 50 years.
After a long period of decline, Sweden is finally starting to approach a rate of 2 again.
However, if you consider who is having the babies, this is not as "Breitbart" as you may think.

It's the same story with the irish, catholics, mexicans, chinese, mormons, etc. How many times were we supposed fall apart and be over run by $demographic, and how many times has it actually happened?

When left unchecked, all of the above. The extreme elements of those communities will grab a foothold and will operate using old-world fears that still linger.

Relatively small amounts of relatively similar cultures assimilated by a culturally confident expanding melting pot is not the same as a stagnant culturally apologetic host taking on relatively large numbers of non-assimilationist, culturally very different immigrants.

It's like asking a small Californian city of wiccans and hippies to take on a 50% increase in population... made up of time travelers from Salam Massachusetts, c. 1690.
