Is it actually too late for Sweden?

Recently,two Swede Democrat leaders penned a WSJ op-ed imploring Americans to avoid the mistakes Sweden made :
“For the sake of the American people…we can only hope that the leaders in Washington won’t make the same mistakes that our socialist and liberal politicians did,” they wrote.
Donald Trump is absolutely right, they opined, and America needs to listen.
“Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems,” Akesson and Karlsson wrote, according to Fox News. “If anything, he understated them.”

They may think it’s too late for Swede. It may well be, but that fear is no reason for us to curl up into a whimpering ball too.
