    No, I was pondering if it was a cure. But if you are so certain that that's what I'm advocating then why waste your time asking what I'm advocating?


Because I have a fascination with both economics, the American political system, and I even like Sweden just because of their relationships with guns.

    Honestly I don't know what I was expecting. I just thought the article was interesting and decided to share it. You've decided to challenge me on the subject, which is the article, without reading it which seems peculiar. Do you just not like socialism?


You are asking people to read a 4500 word document and for them to discuss it with you. At least provide some bullet points.

I have yet to discuss socialism at all really. And "socialism" is such a vague term, it's an ideal economic system, just like capitalism. There are many socialistic ideas I like, and many I dislike. Hence the reasons why I was asking for specifics to discuss.

    "What? How was the Swedish culture in the 90s similar to the American one in the 90s? Talk specifics. Your statement there seems to be a complete contradiction."

    I don't know how much more detail I can go into than providing the article that I'm talking about? If you don't want to read the article that's fine but...I don't see the point in continuing this conversation with somebody who's not really interested thinking about the basis of the conversation. Which is the article.


I don't think many people are going to read the article.



"You are asking people to read a 4500 word document and for them to discuss it with you."

Yes? So? It's not exactly the 12 labors of Hercules. Would you be taking exception to me discussing a movie that takes 2 hours to watch as opposed to a article that takes maybe 20 minutes to read?

"I have yet to discuss socialism at all really. And "socialism" is such a vague term, it's an ideal economic system, just like capitalism. There are many socialistic ideas I like, and many I dislike. Hence the reasons why I was asking for specifics to discuss."

It's hard to go into detail about socialism since the biggest problem with socialism is that socialists can never agree on what socialism is. So the only thing that can really be said about socialism is that it's not as evil as people think it is and it's more complicated than capitalism.

"I don't think many people are going to read the article."

That's too bad. It's interesting.
