Today, as the acting Editor in Chief of the influential Swedish Weekly Nya Tider, which translates as New Times in English, I see that the tide is really turning.
And several countries in Europe already have a government that is ready to defend their national sovereignty against globalism, whether it comes in the form of imperialist states who want to act as “World Police” or from huge companies whose economic or opinion-shaping force is greater than that which any single country can muster.
Public opinion is also changing in my country, Sweden, which for decades has been one of the most extreme in the world when it comes to the implementation of multi-culturalism, gender theories, LGBT and other politically correct crusades. It is great to see that citizens more and more vocally demand the right to their own national identity, their heritage, and not least the right to their own tax money. It is an important change, but it is in no way clear what the end result will be.
Today I can see two main branches in the alternative media; one that is against Islam wherever it may be, be it in England, Paris or Tehran. Let me call this branch the counter-jihadist view. And then there is the non-interference branch promoting the sovereignty of peoples and their right to create their own culture, whoever they may be and whatever culture they want to have. Let me call this the anti-imperialist view.
For me, the counter-jihadist view is as bad as the globalist multi-cultural position, if not worse. Don’t get me wrong, the Islamic state is a terrible menace, both in Europe, in Syria, which I visited and could see the devastation at first hand, and elsewhere. But the critique of the counter-Jihadist doesn’t stop there. It wants to export a liberal Western culture to all parts of the world, into societies and civilizations of other nations – especially Islamic societies. That, in my view, is sheer imperialism.
It is the same form of imperialism, a mirror, of the globalist agenda promoting multi-culture in the West, destroying our European countries. They too want to force their ideology upon every country. The globalists want to open every country to McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and American oil companies. They want to eradicate all unique cultures in the world and transform the nations into obedient consumers with the culture of fashion and profligacy. The counter-jihadist applauds the wars waged against sovereign countries in the Middle East, only because they are Islamic.
A fair and moral standpoint is that of the principle: live and let live. To use an old slogan of the Left, every people’s freedom is the road to world peace. I would say the only road. If we want to defend our Western values in Europe, if we oppose Islamisation, we should equally not intervene in other countries, other nations. Their culture is theirs. They alone can choose which culture to live by and if they want to change something, again it is their decision.
Indeed, if we want to defend our Western values, we should embrace the differences and unique expressions of every ethnic group’s identity – not only our own. Therefore I’m happy to see different countries and continents represented here today. This is true anti-imperialism!
In Nya Tider, we frequently publish geopolitical news and analysis from hotspots such as Syria, Libya, Ukraine et cetera, along with news from Sweden about rising criminality and the collapse of welfare services. These issues are linked, and it is important to explain the connection to the readers.
The counter-jihadist position is dangerous because it creates animosity between peoples that should instead unite. The globalists started this process by wreaking havoc in the Middle East and creating chaos, and at the same time orchestrating a mass immigration to Europe never seen in the continent’s history before, threatening our way of life and opening the doors also to deserters, criminals and terrorists. The counter-jihad stance takes this conflict to a new level, by declaring a war of civilizations as a matter of principle.
Many Europeans, fed up with being robbed of the welfare they built up during generations, and feeling an imminent threat to themselves and their loved ones, now look for solutions. We in the alternative media have a big responsibility to direct this rightful anger to the real culprits, and to explain that the struggle of the Syrian people is the same struggle as the one we are fighting in Europe, only with different means.
Our common struggle is against the globalists, those who hate all the unique cultures. Let the world be truly diverse, with every nation free to create the society of their choice. The world is now changing, in many respects thanks to alternative media, and alternative media stays in the forefront.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
