  1. For the progressive left, impeachment presents a rare opportunity to hold a tyrant to account, and to merge the impeachment issue with a broader agenda for genuine social and political change. While some progressives may balk at forging a tactical alliance with mainstream Democrats, the choice should be a no-brainer. The impeachment train has left the station. Either get on board and help steer, stand aside, or get run over. https://www.truthdig.com/articles/donald-trump-is-finished/
  2. https://www.realclearpolicy.com/2019/05/27/socialism_more_popular_than_donald_trump_41848.html Donald Trump has spent much of this year campaigning against socialism. The president opened his campaign with a rambling February 5 State of the Union address, in which he declared, “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.” A month later, in March, Trump appeared with Jair Bolsonaro, the right-wing strongman who recently became Brazil's president, and announced that “The twilight hour of socialism has arrived.” That was wishful thinking on the president's part. The numbers are in. The president is down. Socialism is up.

  4. As the United States begins its effort to depose Venezuelan president Nicholas Maduro, the discourse is plagued by the perennial question: what is socialism? Venezuela helps illuminate this question because many pundits commit to the claim that Venezuela is socialist before committing to a specific definition of socialism. This unfortunate order of events then requires them to retroactively identify specific things that they say make Venezuela socialist, but then those things exist in other countries that they refuse to call socialist. Caplan does not elaborate on how he distinguishes the Nordic countries from Venezuela or even what he considers socialism. But anyone who objectively compares especially Norway to Venezuela would find the two countries are quite similar and that in fact Norway is far more socialist under conventional definitions of that term. Venezuela and Norway both have abnormally large oil sectors, nationalized oil reserves, and nationalized oil companies. In Norway, the surplus from the oil boom has been used to build a $1 trillion collectively-owned capital fund with the return on that capital going to finance general government spending, including the country’s large welfare state. This capital fund is even colorfully described by the Norwegian government as “the people’s money, owned by everyone, divided equally and for generations to come.” https://www.peoplespolicyproject.org/2019/01/27/norway-is-far-more-socialist-than-venezuela/
  5. In all, Legatum looks at more than 100 variables, including traditional indicators like per capita gross domestic product and the number of people in full-time work. It also analyzes more esoteric data such as the number of secure internet servers a country has and how well-rested people feel on a day-to-day basis. The variables are then split into nine subindexes: economic quality, business environment, governance, personal freedom, social capital, safety and security, education, health, and natural environment. The index looked at the 149 countries with the most available data. Norway held the top spot for eight of the past nine years, dethroned only once by New Zealand in 2016, but could the Nordic nation hold on to top spot in 2018?https://www.businessinsider.com/best-country-in-the-world-legatum-institute-prosperity-index-2018-2018-11 the worlds best nation is socialisthttps://theweek.com/articles/783700/democratic-socialism-bad-why-norway-great A more important rejoinder to this argument is Norway (and the other Nordic countries to a lesser extent). Norwegian workers are heavily protected, with 70 percent of workers covered by union contracts, and over a third directly employed by the government. The Norwegian state operates a gigantic sovereign wealth fund, and its financial assets total 331 percent of its GDP (as compared to an American figure of 25 percent). Meanwhile, its state-owned enterprises are worth 87 percent of GDP. Of all the domestic wealth in Norway, the government owns 59 percent, and fully three-quarters of the non-home wealth (as most Norwegians own their home).
