Norway More For Open Discussion Than Sweden

The contrast between Norway and Sweden on immigration: Norway is relatively more honest on the topic.

“Sweden is very puzzling,” said Grete Brochmann, a leading Norwegian immigration scholar. The Swedes, she said, “are extremely liberal toward immigration, but they have a very authoritarian attitude toward debate about it. In Norway the idea is, open discussion is basically good. If there’s hostility, better to get it out.”

I would like to live in a more honest society. What's the most honest Western society when it comes to discussing social issues?

See this interview with economic researcher Tino Sanandaji on what is happening with Muslim immigrants to Sweden. Free speech on immigration is prevented with job losses and shunning.

Sanandaji explains how the major political parties and media created an official lie and suppressed the real data.

Secular religions can be just as repressive and cultish as supernatural religions. The West's turn away from supernatural religions has not made public discussions more honest.

Here is a detailed article by the same Swedish economist Tino Sanandaji, who is of Kurdish ancestry. Here he gives more statistical details than in the video hat you posted above:

Creationists and Leftards both posit a way the world should be and ignore - or violently suppress, in the case of the Leftists - any evidence to the contrary. Letfist morality is every bit as absurd as the idea that God made the world in six days, and far more dangerous with regards to its consequences. Unlike Christian morality, much of which has millenia of human experience behind it, it is an invented morality - an often irreversible experiment (especially in the case of open borders) with enormous consequences if they are wrong.
