Yet in Socialist Scandinavia every citizen has access to healthcare and education while enjoying a higher quality of life than anywhere else in the world.

Maybe these issues actually have nothing to do with a country's economic system and instead stem from corrupt politicians.


So why are people scrambling to get in the USA and not going to Scandinavia?


There is fairly high levels of immigration to most Scandinavian countries. Since they are generally bordered by other high income (social democratic) countries and the sea, illegal immigration is less of an issue.


Oh that is adorable. Starry eyed naivety.

People are not scrambling to get to scandinavian countries. Those countries are shipping them in as low-skilled laborers to fund their welfare state because of lowered reproduction rates from the native population.

Funny, and here I thought it was because they had more stringent immigration guidelines than we do.

The path of lesser resistance is why we end up with more, not because Europe is less appealing overall. It's a tad easier to get a foot in the American door, I'll admit that much.

OP suggests nuclear strikes on US soils to kill socialists and, of course, it's not removed.

Jesus, you lot have gone absolutely nuts.


It sounds like OP who is a capitalist, wants capitalism to have its on Stalin moment.
Instead of Stalin, it would be his capitalist leaders killing millions.

Shipping them in? What forcibly as slave labour?

Or possibly is it that people do want to live there?

The basic assumption upon which this thread is based is flawed and invalid. There is nothing inherent to the socialistic economic model that results in theft from the population and concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a very few.

This can be shown by the multiple countries existing today that use the socialistic economic model where the population is free, affluent and happy.

The economic or political model used in a country has far less to do with the success of that country than does the quality of the people implementing said economic or political model.

This can be shown by examining the current situation in the US: more and more wealth and power is being stolen from the population in general, and concentrated in the hands of a very few. Thus, the very things that were used as examples of the horrors of socialism are in fact in evidence in this (so called) representative republic.

Which demonstrates that, while some economic and political models may be more susceptible to abuse than others, the dominant factor is the quality of the implementors, NOT on the model being implemented.

And that is how the propaganda whores have gotten them...

They change the definitions of things. So people will inadvertently provide proof of some nafarious plan. When really they are talking both talking about 2 totally and fundamentally different things.

“Socialism” is a perfect example:.

The dictionary definition of socialism is “any time taxes are taken from some or all to the benefit of some or all.


But the Fox News crowd has convinced them that socialism means disarming the public and confiscating all the money and property for the state... or something else ridiculous..


I have a theory that the horrible logic behind the “pro second amendment movement”’s talking points are SPECIFICALLY meant to illicit a debate.

Conservatives say “ guns don’t kill people people kill people”.

Then when someone refutes the ridiculousness of that argument’s logic. It gets twisted into some fictional push for a ban and confiscation..

Which creates a “bad guy” who doesn’t really exist..
