Haha, you guys should check out Lithuania's song. It was a real pity that they didn't make it to the final, as they had a brilliant song. I honestly hated the Swedish song (yet again; "fel låt vann" bahaha). I watched Melodifestivalen this year and thought (along with a ton of my friends) that the Salem al Fakir song should have been sent to the final.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is the staggering number of projects throughout the country that never seem to move forward. The well known one is obviously Tensta, but I lived in Skåne so I don't really know much about it. Where I had lived before was right outside of Norra Faladen in Lund, which has a mostly Arabic population, and it was there that my family met a ton of really awesome people who are just stuck in a hole for themselves just because they're not native to the country which gets them stuck in these unfortunate areas.
Im just curious, how exactly are immigrants discriminated by the system? "
Another big one for me was the international schools and how they were looked upon by the media. There was one incident in Lund where members of socialdemokraterna came to our school and they were really on the verge of breaking out into violence against our section of the school. In addition, journalists from Metro, City, and other free newspapers of that sort would ask loaded questions and make generalizations that put a terrible image upon the international population in Lund (especially for a program that has a much higher standard of education than the norm).
Sorry if this doesn't make sense. My English has really deteriorated as I continued to live in Sweden.
" @OldChili said:Just because the government has a little more control over the economy doesn't mean that the free market system gets completely abolished. Remember, socialism isn't communism. One of the main differences I saw in the system was that people are much more likely to work together and a city or town will flow a lot more. By that I mean public transportation, an education system that can get students to learn things without being oppressive, and so on.. When I lived in Sweden, which has a mainly socialist government, I was able to enjoy most, if not all, of the luxuries that I had always enjoyed or continue to enjoy now living in America (well actually my parents had jobs before moving back when we were told that moving back was the sure fire way to keep our jobs). What I'm trying to say is, I back OldChili's statement 100%, and the assumption that socialism means abolition of the free market system is proof that most Americans are way too eager to dismiss something before really finding out its merits." Well, I was born in the United States and I currently live here, but I lived in Iran for about 5 and a half years. America Love - High standard of living for the most part. Hate - Crazy conservatives and idiots who don't realize socialism is a great system of government (look at Norway for example). Iran Love - Nice population.Hate - Crazy government and lack of basic rights. "How come our free market economy provides one of the highest standards of living for its citizens in the world if socialism is so great? "
Let's see. I guess I should take both of mine.
Love: The Free Market System.
Hate: How we don't really take into account the ideas of other countries..
Love: TRUE freedom. As in freedom within the education system, freedom among your fellow people, freedom from discrimination (among fellow citizens).
Hate: How immigrants are often discriminated by the system.
Well, you covered a lot of the things that I would be looking for in Persona 5. These are some really good ideas for the next title.
" That bit early on where you turn around, and there's a splicer just standing there looking at you. Not a lot makes me jump these days, but that jolted the crap outta me."Do you mean the one in the freezer area? That was frickin' insane. Probably my moment of the game as well.
