Abstract [en]

 

In this paper I will analyze the works of Waldemar Svensson (1897-1984). He was a Swedish Christian liberal, who were active i Swedish politics during the 1930:ies through 1960:ies. The main object of the paper is to analyze what "qustion" Waldemar Svensson wanted to answer in his writings. The hypotesis is that he wanted to give an answer to the question: How do we preserve personal freedom during modern conditions? I will argue that Svensson belong to an 1800-century kind of liberalism, which is very idealistic, and that he is predominantly negative to the modernization of society. I will also argue that Svenssons Christian beliefs are very important for his political views. In the 1930:ies Svenssons "answer" to his question is more radical in the aspect the he, and other Cristian liberals are prepared to use the state in order to foster their ideals and impede developement. However, after the Second World War Svensson gets more defensive and adopt a strategy of protecting the segements of society, in particular the countryside, were he believes his ideal of "naive" freedom is still alive.
