Sweden has not participated in wars for over 200 years.
So when anyone tells you that peace is a pipe dream and against human nature, recall that a whole country managed to resolve conflicts for two centuries.
Sweden also features on every list of countries with a high quality of life.
It is strange that the media underplays achievements like that, while it looks for flaws and signs that things aren’t perfect there; but it can not ask the most logical question: “When was the last time that we abstained from war?”
