Sweden Is Not What Many Think

How often has the country at present enduring the horrific aftermath of a Nutter With the Means and the Intent, been lauded as the shining example of socialism success.

Take a trip to Lindsay Mitchell's Place and read all about it.

Just as Dame Margaret Thatcher predicted, "socialism will only last so long as people exist to fund it" the threat of insolvency came to visit Sweden in the last decade of the 20th century and Lindsay posts on what happened next.
Compulsory reading for any New Zealander with the utopia driven view of tax and welfare to make a fair productive egalitarian society.

Just take 10 minutes and pay her a visit, please, all of you.

No, he was not a fuckwit. He was a carpenter.

Thatcher has never been a Dame, she is a Baroness BTW

"socialism will only last so long as people exist to fund it"

A statement true of any kind of society that uses money. Did she have some kind of point she was trying to make?

That socialism will only exist as long as other people tolerate funding it under threats of force.Once they say enough and fight back its over.

Milt, I think Thatcher differentiated Taxation for the good of all from the socialist dream of redistribution taxation so wonderfully enunciated by one Micheal Cullen with his epithet attacking the successful.
