Yes, let’s talk about politics.
I figured that it might be a good idea, since that the election is coming up here in Sweden. However, you might not be from Sweden and also might not understand the political system we have here. So I’m going to try and explain it to you, at least the way i see it ;)
First of all there are about eight (i think) different parties to choose from, along with some third parties. However, as with most politics, they have merged into two sides, left and right, red and blue. The left/red side has a socialistic/democratic view, while the right/blue side has a conservative/liberal view, the current ruler is the right side. And there are of course the third parties that take very little part in sides and stick to their own agenda, in which they think about issues that the bigger parties don’t care about.
There is one third party that i’m particularly fond of, and it’s called “Piratpartiet” (The Pirate Party). They are concerned about issues regarding patents and privacy etc. You think that such a party wouldn’t be very recognized in such a harsh and difficult system, but no, they have become very popular and has inspired other countries to start their own similar party.
If you find politics confusing, then you are not alone, I’m as confused as you are and i still don’t know who i should vote for. You would think that it would be Piratpartiet, but the answer is no, I still haven’t decided.
