In Sweden things happen that doesnt seem to happen anywhere else, i say that with a double sense, meaning that yes things do in actuality happen here that are very rear in other places, such as the phenomena with the apathetic children that im about to tell you about. But i also mean that things happen here that are so induced in far leftism and political correctness that it actually becomes quite bizarre. If those stories could only be only that….bizarre stories that you could sit back and have a good laugh at. But in this case with the apathetic children which im about to tell you about its not funny, not even for a second because in this phenomena there are real victims and those victims are children.
I remember first hearing about apathetic children on the news some 15-20 years ago, apparently what happened was that amongst families that had come to Sweden as asylum seekers and been rejected this terrible form of apathy started appearing in there children. We were told the reason for this was the plain hopelessness and fear of returning to the countries they had fled from. So basically what happened with these families is that in many cases they were allowed to stay after their children had become apathetic. I dont have any numbers on that but i imagine that having apathetic children was and is a highly effective method of receiving youre asylum status.. I remember thinking already back then there had to be something fishy with this. But nowhere in the media did i hear a single critical voice questioning how or why it could be that this phenomena had become so common here in Sweden when it wasnt appearing anywhere else in the world. I know now, that there where voices questioning this….but they were never heard or were beeing more or less ridiculed.
Its now that this story becomes sooo ugly. Youve probably heard the quote before “The only thing it takes for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing” and it fits very well in this narrative because there were in fact people that knew what was going on, but they did nothing….and that my friend is the worst. First of all lets talk about what really happened then. A few weeks ago the swedish internet magazine magasinetfilter.se published a story that brought everything to the surface, in it featured 2 young adults that had been “apathetic children” It was now 20 year old Anahit Arekelyan and a young man presumably around the same age that doesnt want to appear with name and face but the magazine call him Nermin, and they came out and told their stories. When Anahit was 10 years old during the fall of 2009, her dad and stepmother decided that she was going to be apathetic. She was taken out of school and given a number of guidelines to relate to. “Dont talk, dont smile, dont be out on youre own, dont react to anything” She had to live on yoghurt and nutritional beverages. “I remember my stepmother cooking, and the smell of food could be felt thru the whole house, but i wasnt allowed to eat, sometimes i would sneek up and take a piece of bread or something, because i was so hungry”
The purpouse of all this…to gain residence permit. The apathy lasted for barely a year, after that her dad became so afraid of getting caught that they decided she was going to be normal again. Eventually she was placed in foster care and given her own residence permit, she explains to the magazine filter. The boy that the magazine Filter had chosen to call Nermin came to Sweden with his family from Serbia during 2005. After a few months the families residence permit application was denied. That was the beginning of Nermins life as sick.
To the magazine he tells the story about how his parents made him sit in a wheelchair, made him starve, he couldnt see his friends, lied about him having epileptical seizures. “I wasnt allowed to open my eyes, but i couldnt always resist, and thats when my dad gave me an f-ing smack in the neck” “I prayed to God everytime that someone would tell my dad, what are you doing, youre kid is well! They were trained doctors so they must have understood, but nobody said anything” He was only 12 years old when he tried to kill himself, he lost consciousness but survived. He is now and adult, has recieved his own residence permit and lives away from his family.
Many things points toward that the problem with apathetical children is something that is occuring almost exlusively only in Sweden. Already in 2005 in a state investigation a nurse is beeing quoted saying “Alot of young people come to us and tell us that they are going to stop eating and drinking, then we talk about it and tell them its not going to help you or youre family. Almost all of them will then say that theyve heard that if you do that you get help to stay in Sweden” The same year the welfare agency wrote this “Even if there is no unity regarding how common a manipulative behavior is, its important that those people that are responsible for efforts regarding care for asylum seekers always consider this possibility”
So here is a few weird things that id like to point out, this phenomena occurs almost only in Sweden, there have been people around that has tried all be it subtle, but still have tried to indicate or warn that there might be individuals that are trying to manipulate the system by acting apathetical. But still nothing happened, the behavior continued….and now let me explain to you why. Here in Sweden almost all reporters hired in tv and on the big daily newspapers have a severe bias to the left. Alot of them are not only doing their job as reporters they are more like activists that will go out of their way to not only report about things but actually try and change the outcome of cases they report on. So there you go, reporters, on big papers and tv media made several stories on these poor apathetical children, sob stories where the government and the authorities deciding on their asylum status where being portrayed as heartless creatures.
The situation has improved over the last few years but we have had an opinion corridor here that has been brutal towards anyone that didnt stay inside. If you were a public figure and said something that was not politically correct or in any other matter going against what the media giants here in Sweden had decided was the truth, theyve had the power to start pure witch hunts that could result in people loosing their jobs, careers and friends. Are you beginning to understand why people hasnt spoken up like they should have in a normal society? So the biggest culpret in all of this, is without doubt the swedish media….they have blood and suffering on their hands.
They chose a narrative that they stuck with, didnt want to listen to anyone that said anything different, didnt give anyone that had anything else to say a fair platform at best, at worst they would character assasinate you resulting in the things mentioned above. Other culprets worth mentioning are authorities like the Child-medicine workgroup that applied pressure on the welfare services to remove the wording were it warned hospital staff to be aware of manipulation. Hopefully these brave 2 young adults that now came out and spoke up about what happened might lead to some kind of change. The phenomena with apathetic children is almost as common these days as it was 15 years ago….
