Danish PM in US: Denmark is not socialist - The Local

I love the one with the Denmark PM saying hey were not socialist. That gets the priceless award!
It appears to me that you are presenting a couple of blogger's opinions as fact.
Thanks from imaginethat and coke

You missed the part where the Danish PM said they was not Socialist? Or is that the part you put your fingers in your ear and say I cant hear you?

Meanwhile, so if the liberals make a statement I have to automatically take it as true? Where as if I post a article that contains facts and figures in its link. Oh, no thats just opinion. Get real dude, come out of the liberal closet, quit playing I am in the middle game. Never mind the PM of Denmark's statements. What does he know about Denmark. I am liberal, now shut up so I may define you

Ask the average Brit if they are socialist. Ask the average German if they are socialist. Ask the average Swiss if they are socialist.

The PM is stumping for trade and investment, what do you expect him to say to that audience?

At the heart of the right-side argument is: there's not a nickel's difference between the USSR and Nazi Germany, whereas anyone who wants to do just a little study can show that they are almost polar opposites, e.g, the Soviet system holding the proletariat supreme while the Nazi system considering the proletariat to be at the bottom of social order.

As I noted earlier, the main argument here if applied to health would be that terminal cancer and a fatal car accident are the same because both kill you.

Pretty typical right-wing stuff, especially for libertarians.

The fact that socialist Denmark is head and shoulders above the capitalist America in both happiness and business friendly superiority over everything capitalist America stands for, is more than their wee little minds can comprehend.

Facts have a decidedly Liberal bias.

Socialism is only a bad thing in their minds.

Their failure trying to sell Socialism bad, capitalism good, causes them much aggravation.

Ideologically they were polar opposites, in practice not as much. There were key differences though. The SU's promotion of socialist patriotism was markedly different from Nazi racial nationalism, and the SU's economy was completely owned by state officials in contrast to Hitler's policy which insisted on private property for the sake of competition. There was also much less wealth inequality in the SU than in the capitalist West. Sure, Communist Party members would get benefits, but it's definitely worth noting they would be three or maybe four times wealthier than the average person as opposed to the 10,000 to 1 ratios you see under capitalism.

The Soviets didn't kill 3,000,000 German prisoners or attempt genocide. The same can't be said for the Nazis.
