NY Times used to fantasize about Sweden, too, but Sweden is full of immigrants now, and without oil money, the economy isn't so hot . . . so the once-tolerant, lefty Swedes are starting to veer sharp right, just like the Dutch now that their North Sea natural gas revenues have declined. When the oil cash disappears and Norway has to live on salt-cod again, the old Viking attitudes will be back . . . bank on it.
