292. The Swedish Theory of Love: Financial Independence = Happiness?
Why does unhappiness exist in an ultra-efficient system of personal autonomy such as Sweden? What’s a clear difference in the interaction between individuals in rich and poor societies? What does Isolation and solitude in our society reflect about ourselves? How can Independence exist within Interdependence? How can we create an effective society yet maintaining human connections that develop in healthy and happier society?

In February of 1972 a group of Swedish politicians gathered together to define a new idea for the future. Motivated by a strong need to challenge traditional social structures, they outline a new goal. Their vision was to create ‘a society of autonomous individuals’. A manifesto was written in which it was concluded that no ‘citizen should be dependent on another.’
Cut to 2013, forty years later. Scandinavia is the loneliest region in the world. Sweden statistically has the highest number of people dying alone and tops the chart for single households with 47% of people living alone. Norway is a close second with 42% and Denmark third with 41%. ’The Swedish Theory of Love’ aims to uncover the cracks of Scandinavian perfection and look deeper into the dysfunctional side of modern life.
