Ayaan speaks with Paulina Neuding about rising crime rates in Sweden, humiliation robberies against children, and what Swedish identity looks like today. They consider the social cost of speaking up, and how not saying anything is far more harmful.

Paulina Neuding is a journalist based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Ms. Neuding’s work, which focuses mainly on immigration and integration, has appeared in the New York Times, Politico, the Spectator and others.

She was previously the European editor at Quillette. She is an editorial writer with center-right Svenska Dagbladet in Sweden, and a columnist with Danish Berlingske Tidende.

    As Muslim immigrant populations rise, they become an ever-more potent political force in every country.  As a result, the greater the damage they do, the less coverage they will get.

    Similarly, in the U.S., black crime (and especially black-on-white crime) is covered up by the media.

    As far as I know, however, the “humiliation robberies” of white children have not yet spread from Sweden to the U.S.

    Tara: the humiliation robberies were new to me too. I had heard about the bombings but didn’t realize how many – 2 a month is a lot. Great interview.
