Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I think it's absurd. They certainly aren't either fascist or neofascists. Unless we have regressed to calling all the people we don't like fascists, like the Moscow-aligned communists did before WW2 (when social democrats were called "social fascists").

Mr Löfven is basing these views on a book written by a revisionist historian (without a degree), a Mr Arnstad, who has been massively criticised by real historians. His view is basically that anyone who is a nationalist is a fascist, because the fascists were nationalists. This makes most governments fascist I suppose. He has particularly focused on Norway, which is an especially fascist county as far as Mr Arnstad is concerned.

If this make it sound like the hapless prime minister of Sweden is basing his decision-making (or at least his rhetoric) on the scribblings of a modern day Swedish Rasputin, then well... I couldn't possibly comment on that.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
