anything that comes out of  your mouth

 

You regurgitate propaganda,  I tend to look for evidence backing up claims, Ive been to denmark and asked a few of the locals and they laugh about that report.

what because you think that because they practice the art of hygge is all good?

 

Denmark is the cancer capital of the world

they have the highest percentage of Drunks in the Nordic country

sure they work 28 hours a week

but they also rank fourth in the world when it comes to use of antidepressants

 

does not appear  too happy to me, and the who is behind the list making the nordic countries the happiest in the world?

 

By the way why  is when the Folks from nordic countries leaves the nordic countries and live in America, Canada, Australia most don't want to go back to the Nordic countries to live

 

Dumbie peddling his baloney!

Data is collected from people in over 150 countries. Each variable measured reveals a populated-weighted average score on a scale running from 0 to 10 that is tracked over time and compared against other countries. These variables currently include: real GDP per capita, social support, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, and perceptions of corruption. Each country is also compared against a hypothetical nation called Dystopia. Dystopia represents the lowest national averages for each key variable and is, along with residual error, used as a regression benchmark.

So some random person's subjective cherry picked set of criteria. K got it thanks.

So how many of these countries are dependent on others for their military protection?

Regardless of your worthless opinion on the USA, these countries only have this economic "freedom" because someone else is covering a large part of their military spending.

Like I said, the only protection needed is FROM the US.  If "the someone else covering the military spending" would please stop, that would be great!

You're only embracing yourself.

 

Not really since your made up happiness meter would change dramatically when all those economically "free" countries have to start paying for their own military.

This is like a mafia shakedown: pay for protection or something might happen to you.  It's the mafia that everyone needs protection from.

 

You are making yourself appear an example of what I had just written in the LOR:  

 

You're expressing irrational fear with the constant referral to a need for such robust military protection when no likely threats exist.

 

But even so, they could build their military in absence of the US and consider it as China considers building buildings for no reason: it's something to provide work for people to do, the only difference is the money wouldn't be hoarded by the few, but spread around to the people.

No one said the USA pays for their military.  You're not very bright.

funny how no one wants to talk about china Image result for chinese economic miracle

Figuring out how China is run is important not just because it directly affects the lives of 1.4 billion Chinese citizens. It’s also important because China’s system of governance, whatever it’s called, could soon be coming to a country near you.

“The path, the theory, the system, and the culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics,” Xi said in his 2017 speech, “offers a new option for other countries and nations who want to speed up their development while preserving their independence; and it offers Chinese wisdom and a Chinese approach to solving the problems facing mankind.”   https://www.inkstonenews.com/china-translated/china-translated-china-socialist/article/2161467

Because they're living miserable lives in a capitalistic system that's not supplying them a minimum standard of living.  People resort to drugs in hopeless situations.  When there's no hope, there's nothing left to do but go out of your mind.  If anything, that statistic is evidence the welfare isn't enough.  If more money were given, the amount spent on booze should decline.

I am not in favor of government operated factories, but I do favor Medicare for all, with a private option like Medicare Advantage available. We need an education system in which students are not ruined financially by tuition.  I think a government operated Internet for all service is needed, and price controls on medicine.

Just a decade ago, “socialism” was a dirty word in American politics. Debates over its merits were mostly limited to obscure blogs, niche magazines and political parties on the other side of the Atlantic. But more recently Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a handful of other politicians have breathed new life into the label, injecting a radical alternate vision for the U.S. economy into the mainstream political debate. Ahead of the midterms, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, and Kansas’ James Thompson have proudly held up their endorsements from Democratic Socialists of America, the country’s largest socialist group, whose numbers have swelled since Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.

If it’s good enough for the Nordics, it’s good enough for us.
Matthew Bruenig is the founder of the People’s Policy Project, a progressive think tank.

One way to implement socialism in the United States would be to copy many of the economic institutions found in the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway. These countries, which consistently rank near the top of the world in happiness, human development and overall well-being, have highly organized labor markets, universal welfare states and relatively high levels of public ownership of capital.
