Swedish youth and authoritarian leadership

According to the World Values Survey in 2011, 26% of Swedish youth (18-29) would prefer an authoritarian regime under certain circumstances.

A qualitative probe of this has suggested that one reason for this reply was that they had a vague notion of what democracy was, because it has not been taught in schools.
