With us or against us

"Often, the third position is merely a cover for communist propaganda", Herbert Tingsten wrote in the main editorial of Dagens Nyheter 17 June 1951. The third position was the view that neutral Sweden should not take a stand for either of the two great powers, the United States or the Soviet Union.[1]

The third position has twice in the course of a few days been presented on the radio by Mr. Artur Lundqvist and Erik Blomberg. It is proper that this dissenting opinion may be heard. But it is astonishing that our radio at the same time systematically fails to let the opinion be heard that demands a closer connection to the Western defense organization. Only on a few occasions, in the form of a short debate, is there knowledge that such a view exists. It is all too well known that the government does not want information and discussion about this problem - while in any case the government body considers the third position worth propagating in a lot of articles. The radio's compliance is as clear as it is unpleasant.”[1]
