Something I wrote and had published at Terror House Magazine.
Some time ago, yours truly woke up one morning to what I expected to be just another ordinary day. But instead, I found I was living in the year 2045. This was a stay that only lasted for one day, after which I returned to our day and age – yet not without having been overcome by a sense of dread at what I learned that day. What I’m about to tell you here is the story of when I met one of the people from that era – a man who shared with me what to him was past history, but which for me constituted a future I had not yet experienced. It was a horrible tale of my native country of Sweden having gone under due to women’s “liberation”, and the conclusions the rest of the world had drawn as they had witnessed the once proud country perish.
One Day in 2045
As I meet the new day, I find I’m not laying in my bed like I usually do when I wake up. Instead I’m walking the streets of some post-apocalyptic nightmare, not a living being in sight, and everything around me visibly run down. A short distance away, I see a block of concrete buildings, what we call ‘betongghetton’ in Swedish – the cardboard cut-out residential areas the government used to like planting all over the nation. But unlike the ones of old, these aren’t maintained at all. Trees and plants have overgrown the place, and the grass is more like weed.
Suddenly, an unexpected sight uncovers itself before me. I realize I’m not alone at all, as an elderly man in a tweed suit is suddenly standing right in front of me. As he looks at me, he judges by my puzzled facial expression that I must be new here. Before I can go ahead and do it myself, he’s already stretched out his hand towards me in a friendly gesture, and I proceed to meet the handshake.
“You look somewhat out of place,” the man goes.
“You can say that again,” I answer. “What is this place? This doesn’t look at all like the country I remember.”
“Sweden, we used to call it,” the man goes, and proceeds on a monologue. “A nation that prided itself upon the insane concept of ‘gender equality’. To the inhabitants of the day it seemed all fair and dandy – although in practice, the women naturally got to choose when they wanted to apply their ‘equality card’. They did it when board room positions were on the line, but not really when it came to garbage work, construction or similar. And not when it came to facing criminal charges when they had killed their boyfriends, and such – then they always wanted us to pity them somehow, be understanding of their circumstances and the perceived threat they experienced from their non-violent partners. ‘I just knew he would stab me dead one day, so I had to stab him first,’ they all used to say. Not a single time did they ever prove their partners had any such intentions, however. Yet what court would actually second-guess a woman’s statement and supposedly saintly intent?”
“That doesn’t sound fair at all,” I countered.
“An astute observation, because it sure wasn’t. Every aspect of societal life had to be catered to the needs and desires of this privileged class called woman, no matter how unfair and burdensome it was to other parties. Swedish men had simply capitulated as a gender, grudgingly accepting their lot as mere servants.”
“Sounds like something out of Planet of the Apes.”
“Very much so! The universal and natural social order had been completely overthrown in this society. The ones biologically evolved to serve found themselves able to dictate everything, and the ones evolved to rule instead had to be content with being nothing more than slaves.”

“It didn’t start out all that bad, naturally, because there was a time before this insane feminism took hold. Which year did you say you were from again?”
“Ah, then you’re pretty familiar with what I’m about to relate here then. But just as backdrop, let me remind you of Sweden’s golden era during the mid-20th century. Modern Sweden took its beginnings in the industrially and socially backwards days of the late 19th century, when a large portion of the people were nothing more than indentured servants to landed farmers. There were few industries to be had, and hardly any urbanisation had taken place yet. Drinking alcohol was a very popular pastime, and the increase in its production resulted in a decent amount of social unrest – at least compared to the days before; not to the ones that would follow as third-world immigrants set foot on the country’s soil.”
Pausing one moment, he continues. “Yet the men of that day set their minds to modernising Sweden. Very quickly, the great potential of the country was mobilised, and new corporations planted their first roots – some that would end up dominating their fields globally, like for example IKEA. Massive mines and factories started springing up in seemingly every little town across the country. And other social problems like the drinking were also successfully addressed through the sobriety movement. The mid-20th century was a highly promising day and age for Sweden, with one success after another in what would soon be described as a utopia, a society that astonished onlookers. And the men of the country proved just as productive and vigilant in matters of organization as they did in industrial production. SJ, the Swedish State Railways, set a standard for train punctuality that no other country could match – and this was during peacetime! You could always count on busses and trains to arrive on time, and if you had a connecting transport that departed no more than three minutes later, you would still be confident you’d catch it. Not to mention the great ethnic homogenity and excellent public health that existed at the time.”
“Ah, those were the days,” I concur. “I wish I could have gotten to experience more of those days back then, but at least I had a little taste of them growing up.”
“Yep, that was quite the country. Unfortunately, a terrible mistake had been made that would later prove to doom the country.”
“Which particular mistake are you referring to?”
♦ – – – – ♦
“The one made in 1919, when women’s suffrage was introduced. Though the move may have appeared innocent at the time, one that initially didn’t cause much to change, it would later indeed facilitate the country’s self-destruction at the hands of women drunk with power. This move was part of the first wave of feminism, the onslaught on Sweden and other societies that would ultimately doom them if they didn’t contain it. Women have always had a strong position in Scandinavian society, but under the patriarchy of old, at least they could be kept under control and be forced to serve as responsible members of society. As feminism grew ever more prominent, their true nature would however make itself known.”
“Give them one finger and they’ll take the whole hand,” I added.
“That was exactly the case. The second wave of feminism struck during the irresponsible 1960s, when the youth at the time pretty much wanted to destroy everything precious that existed – driven on by these savage women. Though the first wave was about securing ‘equality’, if that term has any clear meaning – the second wave was about women becoming more than equals; rather superiors. Now anything a man did was to be portrayed as sexist or oppressive, and women started proving themselves quite the parasites, as they demanded a share of everything male society produced.”
“Oh, even in my day, I had my share of these obnoxious women…”
“The third wave of feminism is the one we’re suffering under now, one where the entitled women of our people are forced to compete with third-world savages for the resources men create, which has them a bit upset – but naturally they don’t take out those feelings on the invaders, but rather on the usual suspects – us men. This has made some men take the somewhat amusing step of undergoing sex change surgery in order to ‘become’ women, and be able to reap all the benefits of being one – including beating them in sports competitions. Yet it’s absolutely not politically correct to question this, so the women simply have to grit their teeth as they watch their intended medals fade from their eyes.”

After another brief pause, he goes on. “The heyday of Swedish society wasn’t to last, however. As more and more women rose to prominent positions in the 1970s and 80s, this began to take its toll on society. Productivity started declining due to the poor decisions women made when they were put in positions of authority, not to mention how this increased participation on the part of women outside of the home had detrimental effects on the physical and mental wellbeing of the growing generation, as children no longer had a loving mother at home, but found themselves put in daycare instead. The effort to ‘free’ up women from their natural role was absolutely extreme, and feminists were quite vigilant in making sure all women towed the line. Any woman wanting to pursue a traditional lifestyle was regarded as a ‘traitor’, one they scorned far more than they did – say – a convicted murderer.”
At this point, I’m amazed at the man’s ability to summarise this modern history into so few words of great relevance. He continues:
“All areas of society were negatively impacted. Whereas Sweden had kept up with the best of them – the US included – in terms of economic growth up until 1970; from that point on it saw itself fall ever farther down, by the early 2000s hardly even matching the OECD median. This female conquest had serious implications on workplace culture as well. Whereas before, Sweden had distinguished itself with its great cameraderie and order in the male-dominated workplaces, now women turned these same workplaces into politicized battlegrounds where conflict was always ubiquitious. A focus on production and performance was replaced with one of ideological conformity and bullying. Women never missed out on the opportunity to school someone on being ‘reactionary’, ‘maintainer of the patriarchy’ or similar, and really no one was safe from these accusations. Men (and women as well, when they ended up victims) went on sick leave more and more often due to the toxic atmosphere in the workplace. Whereas before, work was associated with happiness and purpose, now it instead meant misery and meaninglessness.”
“The events of 2018, how would you describe them?” I asked.
“Ah yes, the year of the great forest fires. The year the climate was unusually hot, and Sweden to its dismay had to rent fire-fighting vehicles from other countries, no longer concerning itself with maintaining a fleet of its own. Gender theory, LGBT certification and similar ideological excesses were deemed more important. Train transport had taken a huge beating as well, 40% of all trains being late on arrival by that point. Even though the worst was yet to come, Sweden wasn’t quite the same country any more then.”

Now the man turns to another topic. “Those were, generally speaking, the downsides feminism had caused society as a whole. But there is of course there is a modern saying in Sweden that goes ‘det privata är politiskt‘, what’s personal is (also) political. This was a philosophy where nothing was excluded from being under political oversight, no matter how personal and intimate – which is why I feel the need to critique the demographic that pushed this very philosophy – the nation’s women. You see, they didn’t exactly excel as far as personal conduct goes, if I put it that way.”
He sweats a bit over what he’s to relate now, being a prudish and dignified man. “Whereas up until the 1960s, sexual morality had been highly regarded, the sexual revolution had smashed all of this during the 1970s. Everything became the focus of hedonistic pursuits, a move spearheaded by women. Children became sexual objects too, and trafficked by women like brothel owner Doris Hopp. By the 2010s, more and more elderly women felt entitled to having a sex slave of their own – and unaccompanied minors from Afghanistan came in real handy for that. These women would get their at least legally underage slaves residential permits and sort out other paperwork for them, then keep them in their homes as dependents. And there, they would let their hands go wild over their bodies, managing them as some sort of human pets for their sexual gratification. Earlier, women had cursed any elderly man with a younger partner as a child molester, but that didn’t keep the women from exploiting significantly younger individuals.”
“That’s so creepy!”
“Indeed it is! That’s not the end of society’s peculiar treatment of sexual matters, however. During the 2000s, the concept of rape had become ever more politicised, encompassing more and more in the way of consensual sexual interaction, until ‘Samtyckeslagen‘ was introduced in 2018, perhaps translated as ‘The Consent Act’, legislation that required explicit consent on the part of women if a man wanted to be safe from being accused of ‘rape’. For that purpose, a ‘mobile app’ was even developed that let people transmit such consent to a central authority before they engage in their intercourse.
“I bet women never had to ask the Afghanis for consent!”
“You’re correct there. Though formally it was gender-neutral legislation, in practice it only involved male-on-female offenses, as was almost always the case in that society.”

“So how did society fare after my day and age?” I asked the man.
“Not good at all, I’m afraid. Though Swedish men had hoped that there’d be democratic solutions to the mess the country was in, Alternative for Sweden’s gruesome defeat in the 2018 autumn elections proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that there was no hope to be had. The country had crossed the point of no return due to that one tragic mistake committed in 1919. During the decades that followed, Swedish couples had fewer and fewer children, while immigrants – especially Africans – kept churning out offspring as if on an assembly line. This led to Swedes becoming a minority in the year 2035, having already become so much earlier as far as births went. And soon, an Arab-African alliance was to have complete dominance over political offices on all levels, one that kept on eating away at society’s resources and what Swedish men still produced. As for the women, they found themselves having to live under sharia law – which even though affluent women initially considered it shameful, they eventually happily settled into this social order and became confined to their households, where they gave birth to and reared the children of the invaders.”
“Sounds like society had come full circle, women having returned to the same position they were in before – at least if you’d believe feminist historians,” I added.
“Haha, yes – that kind of a ‘historian’. The kind that described all healthy and normal societies as oppressive patriarchies. Yet women in Sweden had never before experienced anything at all like the low social status they had now. And this brings me to my final point.”

After thinking for a moment, the man continues. “As you can see, your nation is on its deathbed in the 2018 you’re living in. During the decades that follow, your society will completely deteriorate and cease to function – to eventually even ceasing to exist. If Sweden is to go on as a country, there has to be an end to feminism and the appeasing of women. You need to put them into their places and have them going back to their traditional roles – giving birth to as many Swedish children as possible and devoting their lives to caring for them! You have absolutely no use for women in the workplaces; in fact, they have to be actively chased out of there! You need to put an end to diversity quotas, female quotas, discrimination agencies, and anything of that sort. It is of no use to your society or your people! What this ultimately is, is a race for birth rates. You need to completely rid yourself of all your Cultural Marxist programming, all this nonsense about ‘equality’ being something commendable, female participation being something to strive for, or female nature being somehow benevolent. You need to realize society is completely poisoned, and that you have to completely purge all these alien ideas! Or what you see before you here in 2045 will indeed become reality!”
“You’ve certainly given me a lot to think about!”
“I hope I have! Now, please don’t let your precious and proud society end this way! If you can find some way of changing its trajectory, then go ahead and do so!”

As suddenly as I first found myself in 2045, just as suddenly I’m back in 2018. I’ve got a revolting feeling inside of me as I realize that a country that has stood tall for thousand of years is about to draw its last breath during my very own lifetime. Is this an inevitable development, or can our future still be salvaged? So that Sweden will be more than just an example that will deter others from treading down the same path? Can I really take care of this matter alone? As I think about the matter, I realize I have to network with other men, and they do likewise, for us to have some form of political structure through which to effect this change. Because we can simply not let Sweden end this way. We need thot control!
