Where Socialism Was Successful

2020 February 14
by bc3b

Bernie Sanders and his followers have been promoting socialism throughout his 2020 presidential campaign. Polls show that more than 40% of Americans are open to socialism, something that is particularly scary.

When Sanders (and others) promote socialism, they always cite Denmark and other Scandinavian countries. They never cite examples like the Soviet Union, Cuba or Venezuela, where babies are dying of malnutrition.

Why did socialism work in Denmark and other Scandinavian countries? Simple – all the stars were in alignment:

  • Highly educated, homogeneous citizenship
  • Strong work ethic
  • No underclass (life-long welfare recipients)
  • Law-abiding people (little spent on policing and incarceration)
  • Very little of the national economy was spent on defense (Uncle Sucker took care of that)
  • Low birthrate meant less was spent on education

In Scandinavia, socialism was much like investing in an annuity and enjoying the benefits. Life was simple: go to school and become educated, get a good-paying job, enjoy a four-week vacation with your smoking hot blonde wife and retire sometime between 50 and 55.

This is rapidly changing as more migrants are invading Scandinavian countries and bringing increased welfare and crime, making once idealistic societies far less idealistic (particularly Sweden). Scandinavian societies are no longer homogeneous. The problems Scandinavian countries, Germany, Belgium, France, etc. are having is that because of modern communications more uneducated, unskilled people are discovering these veritable paradises and modern transportation makes them far more accessible.

Citizens are forced to give up the good life for invaders. Stories have been reported where citizens were evicted from government-subsidized housing they had occupied for decades so migrant families could move in. Cities where people once felt safe taking a midnight stroll now have serious problems with assaults, robberies and rape. Money spent on enjoying the good life is now being spent on migrants.

Why socialism won’t work in the US?

  • The citizenship is not homogeneous
  • A sizable portion of the population is not well educated
  • There was already an underclass and a second has been created through illegal immigration
  • We have more law-breakers (primarily from the underclasses – 39% of federal prison “guests” are black and 35% are Hispanic – many of them are illegal aliens)
  • We provide defense (not only for the US, but also for the free world)
  • It’s far easier for migrants to invade the US than Europe as it’s much easier crossing the Rio Grande than the Mediterranean Sea

    In the past in Sweden, a brunette might have been a real turn on.

    A few years back L’Oreal was virtue signaling and had a Muslim model complete with a hijab. I am not sure what the purpose was (other than virtue signaling). I presume Muslim women do wash their hair. Who knows? The relationship came to an abrupt end when some anti-Semitic posts from her past surfaced.

    This is what’s scary:

    Socialism is the zombie ideology of our era: It fails everywhere, and yet it keeps rising back from the dead.

    Despite embarrassing socialist failures in China, Russia, North Korea, Cuba, and now Venezuela, the true believers march onward. Good intentions are unassailable. The revolution must go on.

    A recent Gallup survey shows that their message is resonating with more and more Americans.

    While 51% say socialism would be bad for America, 43% say it would be good. And notably, among the 18-34-year-old cohort, 58% favor socialism while 37% disfavor it.

    So, while Bernie would likely lose to Trump, his defeat wouldn’t be nearly as bad as George McGovern’s.

    I think Americans are very confused as to the definition of ‘socialism’. Lets take Denmark, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO7wgS5tdz4 , the PM points out it is not socialist. What it is, is a high tax capitalist country. In some ways, like Calif is already trying, but sadly Calif does not have the unifying social structure BC points to, so its doomed to failure. Sweden is in the same mold as Denmark only they have gone a step further and added govt run healthcare and their national defense industry is govt owned. But the balance of it, aka nearly all of it, is a capitalist system.

    Socialism works quite well in one instance — the extended family unit. In that arrangement the maintenance of the tribe is of paramount importance hence sharing the goods by the group for the group works. But once one wants to trade sea shells for bear skins your exchange is outside of the influence of the group dynamic and into the realm of self interested dealings. Progs seem to miss the difference.

    “So, while Bernie would likely lose to Trump, his defeat wouldn’t be nearly as bad as George McGovern’s.”

    I think it will be as bad as the 1972 election. First off that cohort of voters that are so hip for socialism is the same group that has some of the lowest turnout at an election. Second Bernie is making the same mistake McGovern did — economics. Nixon killed the stagflation monster, Trump has the economy roaring. Bernie and McGovern only offer/ed more taxes. Also Nixon made the promise to get the US out of Vietnam. Trump has made a similar promise, yet unfulfilled.

    Then there is one last item — upbeat winning attitude. Trump paints a brighter, better future. The Democrats? America is racist, hates the poor, is antiwomen. Another words, a harpy, down trodden view of the US. So if you had a choice which do you prefer? I have yet to meet an American of any political stripe that thinks having another Great Depression is a desirable thing. “What is bad for the country is good for a Democrat” is not a winning strategy.

    DrDog 9, makes a good point.
    These socialist Scandinavian countries have private property, hence not socialist.
    Denmark has turned noticeably more conservative due to migrants. Though Sweden still seems suicidally PC.

Personally I’d give him 1 year + 3 yrs probation after +restitution, system probably paroles him in 6mo. Gotta serve at least a couple months to show others this can’t be done.

    A comment I saw about McCabe not being charged

    “John Soloman was on Sebastian Gorka’s My Pillow 3hr Infomercial. Apparently in recent weeks he told Gorka that McCabe would walk so Gorka invited him back on to explain how he knew.

    Soloman said he figured this out last October/November and has had subsequent information that backed up his notion about McCabe getting kicked loose.

    He said that the DOJ struggled to find a DC jury panel that would do anything other than give McCabe a free pass. “It is the nature of DC.” According to Soloman this happens all the time there. If the DoJ knows, after interviewing the potential jurors, that they aren’t going to prevail they drop the charges.

    IOW, swamp.”
