The Ghost Of Palme.

The Ghost Of Palme.

They laid the great Palme Low

So some day the people wouldn´t know

Of Their True Fatherland

Olof he had told of love

He had told of the language of Lagom

of the bosom of Motherland

The assassins bullet sent to censor

Yet still Olof speaks as Sweden Cries

He is her conscience and culture

Sweden will not lie down

Her children will not be cowed

All swedes new and born will hear

Olof whispers in every ear

Palme demands respect for Sweden

Olof´s blood was Sweden´s Pain.

Sweden Marches for Lagom

Olof Laid down his life for Lagom

Sweden demands Lagom for Swedes

And still The great Palme speaks

His words are in the breeze

Swedens voice through the forests trees

Yes they Laid the great Palme Low

So some day the people wouldn´t Know

Of their founders history

Sweden is our Home and culture

Europe is political Geography/Economy

Olof showed us our Swedish soul

Yes They laid the great Palme Low

With his last breath and blood

Olof whispered into the air

We are all Palme now

and Albin Branting & Erlander

´´solidarity and consideration among People´´


"A pivotal, renowned, and polarizing figure domestically as well as in international politics since the 1960s, Palme was steadfast in his non-alignment policy towards the superpowers, accompanied by support for numerous third world liberation movements following decolonization including, most controversially, economic and vocal support for a number of Third World governments which were guilty of gross violations of human rights. Most famously, he was the first Western Head of Government to visit Cuba after its revolution, giving a speech in Santiago praising contemporary Cuban and Cambodian revolutionaries.

Frequently a critic of US and Soviet foreign policy, he resorted to fierce and often polarizing criticism in pinpointing his resistance towards imperialist ambitions and authoritarian regimes, including those of Francisco Franco of Spain, António de Oliveira Salazar of Portugal, Gustáv Husák of Czechoslovakia, B J Vorster and P W Botha of South Africa. His 1972 condemnation of the Hanoi bombings, notably comparing the tactic to the Treblinka extermination camp, resulted in a temporary freeze in Sweden–United States relations. Palme's steadfast opposition to apartheid, which he labeled "a particularly gruesome system", gave rise to theories of South African involvement in his death, which were further fueled when Eugene de Kock claimed South African security forces had orchestrated his death. His murder by an unapprehended assailant on a street in Stockholm on 28 February 1986 was the first of its kind in modern Swedish history, and the first assassination of a national leader since Gustav III. It had a great impact across Scandinavia. Local convict and addict Christer Pettersson was convicted of the murder but was acquitted on appeal by the Svea Court of Appeal."


Lagom (pronounced [ˈlɑ̀ːɡɔm]) is a Swedish word meaning "just the right amount".
The Lexin Swedish-English dictionary defines lagom as "enough, sufficient, adequate, just right". Lagom is also widely translated as "in moderation", "in balance", "perfect-simple", and "suitable" (in matter of amounts). Whereas words like sufficient and average suggest some degree of abstinence, scarcity, or failure, lagom carries the connotation of appropriateness, although not necessarily perfection. The archetypical Swedish proverb "Lagom är bäst", literally "The right amount is best", is also translated as "Enough is as good as a feast".[1] That same proverb is translated as "There is virtue in moderation".[2]
