New Hampshire is a great state for the most part having grown up near the boarder and having lived in Portsmouth for a couple years I agree.
However it is also very homogenous and has no major cities. Just like most of the others in the top 5 on the list. Which I disagree with most of
Now if we look at the top 10 socialist countries Venezuela isn't even on that list.
Number 2 for instance after China is denmark where people have one of the highest standards of living in the world and the highest median income. Also
a small homogenous country without very large cities.
I am not a socialist I am a libertarian but different strokes for different folks.
I think libertarians are really just classical liberals. Most are well versed in philosophy and also willing to compromise without abandoning their
ideals or making the issues polarized and sensationalized to mislead voters.
I am more on the moderate side. I don't think Mises is very practical all the time I think Hayek a little more but some of the Austrian philosophy
doesn't think about money power in the market and human nature in the form of greed. Which is why some basic regulations are needed to keep money
power from manipulating politics and the market.
For instance the Rothchilds buying up the gold market and manipulating the price of gold buy restricting or flooding the material on the market.
Which is a problem when its backing tour currency.
Of coarse its even worse now.
