The Future of Sweden
A short while back, we published an article called ‘The Future of Sweden‘. The aim of that article is to show some demographic trends taking place in Sweden. We use some statistics that are known and easily verifiable. We also make predictions for the future, based on assumptions and estimates, as predictions always are. Unfortunately very few organizations study the demographic shift happening in Europe, despite the relevance of demographic changes in a democracy. In case you wonder why demographics are important, please read our article on Why Demographics Matter?
The changes will be coming, they will be significant, and they will be irreversible. Nonetheless, making predictions is difficult. That is why a Twitter user called ”Sweden Fact Check” has provided their feedback on the article. They did this in a burst of tweets, which we will discuss below. If you prefer the summary, scroll down to the bottom to read the main points.
The rise of political islam
In the debate surrounding immigration, integration, religious fanaticism and radicalism, all too often the debate is about the migrants, but not involving migrants. Today, Dr Sid Lukkassen discusses these topics withManel Mselmi: a young woman of Tunisian origin who is active for Mouvement Réformateur in Belgium. She is currently a PhD candidate in environmental humanities, a talk show host and a blogger. Sid published several books on topics such as geopolitics, humanism, media analysis and the culture wars and, from 2010 – 2018, he was active as a city councillor (VVD)
Sweden is a Scandinavian country with just over ten million inhabitants. Although Sweden is relatively sparsely populated, around 85% of the population lives in the urbanized areas. The majority lives in the coastal areas in the south, where the climate is less harsh.
The descendants of Vikings have left their pagan traditions behind and turned to Christianity. The nation became Christian in the 12th century, and turned to Protestantism around the 16th century. Nowadays around 70% of the population continues to be registered as Christian, despite the fact that the Swedish people are not very religious.
We will have a similar review with regards to Swedish demographics, as we did previously with:

Population Growth in Africa
We talk about migration issues from Syria and the Middle-East. We talk about the possibility of Turkey joining the European Union, opening the doors of Europe to millions of Turks. Nevertheless, the real migration will originate in Africa. It is the continent that has maintained high birth-rates, despite predictions that they will become lower.
How many people live in Africa today? Not even 1.3 billion. And by 2050? Well, 1.3 billion more. A total of 2.6 billion people would live in Africa. Although population growth in Europe is purely due to immigration, Africa’s population will double thanks to its high fertility rates. What will the consequences be?

Greece; Part of an Empire
We discussed in a previous post, how Greece has lost its sovereignty. Whether it succumbs to the rule of the Persian empire, or to the rule of the European Union, does not matter. The fact is, Greece no longer controls its own faith. Now, some of the readers will consider that as far-fetched. After all, the EU is a supposedly democratic organization. The EU, we believe, has the interest of the people in mind.
Yet, actions speak louder than words. From how the EU behaves, can we deduct what values the institution truly holds? How did the EU behave when Greece got into deep troubles after the crash of 2008? Whose interests did they serve? Those of the people of Greece? Or were the people of Greece sacrificed and made to suffer, for a higher purpose? Let’s take a look.
Underage girls sold in an ISIS sex slave auction
Any child growing up in the Netherlands in the 90’s would learn about loverboys. As early as primary school, girls were warned against the dangers of these so called loverboys. They were, in general, Moroccan and Turkish guys that would charm young girls with all the wrong intentions. After an initial period of showering the girl with gifts, and distancing her from friends and family, the loverboy would start with his requests. The requests, always, were sexual. The girls were made to fall in love with these guys, and were then tricked into working as a prostitute.
Everyone knew it happened, and it was an openly discussed topic. What wasn’t so openly discussed, was who the perpetrators were. They were, and have always been, primarily those with ‘migrant backgrounds’.

The Clovis Institute will sometimes share guest submissions. The article below was shared with us by Rob Miller, with the original article posted here.
The Open Letter
I must admit, I write this with mixed feelings. While I have a number of British friends and acquaintances, I’m afraid I have little respect left as a whole for what Britain has become today.
Whatever else can be said, Great Britain was once one of the free, civilized nations of the world, a country that exemplified the rule of law and the love of freedom. As many of you may now realize, that isn’t true anymore, and that saddens me. What’s happened recently will pretty much end Britain’s days as a beacon of liberty.
The Case In Favour of Refugees
We have written articles on how immigrants are not required to fill European jobs. A recent article discusses how they are a burden on the taxpayer. Multiple articles cover the topic that Europe’s demographics are changing.
All articles that say there really is no economic benefit of pulling immigrants into Europe. The other side of the topic is however that of helping people in need. Yes, these people request asylum. They are fleeing warzones, political prosecution, or other unsafe scenarios. So, it would definitely help these individuals to live their lives in safe, rich Europe instead. It would be very altruistic, to let them in.
