    Me and Carl are Swedish. Take that as you may.

    Also, literally no one in this thread has any clue. "Extremist leftist policies" rly? Venezuela has that. Maybe Cuba. Sweden is a normal Nordic country with a few loud leftists in the media - it's not like it's that different from reading the Guardian on occasion.

    Well, the president wants to have "Gender-equality focused" foreign policy, and several lawmakers wanted to force men to urinate sitting down, it seems pretty extreme to us Americans.http://www.euronews.com/2013/03/08/has-swedish-feminism-gone-too-far/
    This was in 2013. It's gotten more extreme.
    Just recently, the largest political party suggested taxing men for domestic violence. All men.

    If you were a Syrian refugee, it would not be a problem. Are you sure Swedish government will allow you to become a resident? If yes, on what grounds?

    I don't know if Sweden is on EU but if it's not, then there's nothing wrong with the country.

    Lol. Most Europeans, including Swedes will chuckle at seeing an American describe Sweden as extreme anything, other than blonde, cold and dark. So the odd politician suggests a stoopid policy? I think you'll find Swedes don't have a monopoly on that.

    At least they've never elected anyone like Dubya. :p

    It is, but like the UK, it is not in the Eurozone. In short, it retains it own currency.

    Yes they will. They are EU members, and have signed up to the Schengen Area thingy which allows free movement of people between member states. It's no different than a New Yorker moving to California basically.
    However, if they read @klimaxo's threads, they might change their minds. :p:rolleyes:

    It seems to me, that going to sweden is like the opposite of Louisiana. That means they are both pretty stupid IMO.

    Come to Finland, where they actually pay you to study at University!

    I've been to Stockholm quite a few times, it's a nice city, not a gigantic one but there's a lot to see. Never felt threatened there, granted I haven't spent a night there in ages. Then again, I just loved Cape Town and I didn't feel threatened there either. I guess it's a matter of perspective. If I had to move somewhere it would definitely be there.

    Jesus Christ, the macho backslapping here is so massive. Good luck with the Swedish girls, I'm sure they'll appreciate your efforts. Moving abroad simply to get laid, now that is dedication.

    Just in case there were women.
    Chicks dig dudes in space helmets and cars!

    I am a bit surprised what people have answered to a simple question. Some posts are more relevant for conspiracy theories than giving guidance for someone to move there.

    Anyways, if the original question could be more specific with regards to the concerns it will be easier to give proper advise :)

    I dont think i like the climate. I might go (if it europe) think about Mediterranean. I can always go on Holiday to Swe to enjoy the people/culture and beautiful nature.

    I thought @Kattis was from Swe? (Yep)
