Response to earthshine (Reply #7)

88. Finland, Norway, & Denmark are orders of magnitude less diverse than America...

 

When a social policy regarding chldren's education or medical care is made in the Norwegian capital, it is not that difficult to persuade citizens in one part of the country that children in another part of the country are "their" children too, and should have the same benefits and tax dollars spent.

Just try that in Washington DC. You think the people in "the heartland" really relate to the children in inner cities as though they are their own?

We have our own strengths, and need to build on them. We have quite a way to go. But imagining a Nordic Socialist Paradise replicating itself in the US any time soon is folly.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
