Low cunning of Sweden’s Social Democrats

For some politicians, running up deficits

is not a problem but a benefit, since doing so creates a population permanently in thrall to them for the favours by which it lives. The politicians are like drug dealers, profiting from their clientèle’s dependence.

The Swedish Social Democrats

understood long ago that if more than half of the population became economically dependent on government, either directly or indirectly, no government of any party could easily change the arrangement. It was not a crude one-party system that the Social Democrats sought but a one-policy system.
