Will Sweden become a net consumer of security
or will Svea wake up and seek to assume its traditional role as a stabilizing power in the Baltic Sea?

Sweden is viewed as contributing positively to environmental, societal and trade cooperation in the Baltic region, and the destabilizing nature of its security and defence policies is often ignored. In order to play a positive role in regional security, Sweden must ensure that its defence policy and military posture are aligned.

RE: Will Sweden become a net consumer of security
As Jussi "Dr. Evil" Halla-aho recently wrote in a piece (in Finnish) published on a Finnish anti-conscription website (Halla-aho's piece was very much pro-conscription): Sweden seems to be creating an army that'll do just fine, as long as it won't have to fight any wars.

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.
