4 ‘Incendiary’ Charts For Trouble In Socialist Paradise
by Tyler Durden
Anytime a free market guy rails against central planning and socialism, there is always someone who stands up and says “what about Sweden?” Ah, Sweden… a socialist’s paradise… a place where taxes are among the highest in the world, few people are wealthy, and the government is involved in people’s lives from cradle to grave. And in all of these government surveys on ‘happiness’, places like Sweden, Norway, and Denmark consistently rank among the happiest countries in the world. Well… the veneer is cracking. The riots we first noted here continue and these foru charts may offer some of in the incendiary material for why. As we noted recently, the benefits that have kept Europe relatively ‘social-unrest-free’ so far are starting to run dry. People in North America who are rapidly being dragged into a welfare state should pay very close attention… because this is the future that awaits.
