Socialism strives for equal results for all.   American capitalist democracy strives for equal opportunity for all.

Socialism results in the lowest common denominator.

The things you consider important are both sad and telling.

no hippies please.

The lowest common denominator? And yet my country beats your in literally everything. We are far from the lowest common denominator (what the USA is to the majority of the western world)

How are the things I consider importan sad? Are health, happiness, education, sad? News to me.

In Norway, everyone should have decent standard of living and no child should live in poverty. You can still get rich and you have plenty of opportunities. You have no idea what you're talking about buddy. Since you're American I highly doubt you cold even locate Norway on a map. But never mind. You're kids may be stupid and uneducated as hell but at least the rich man is okay.

Really?  What sway does all of Scandinavia have?   As far as the world is concerned it is just a cold nursing home.  

Lowest common denominator and lowering all the time.

no hippies please.

"Lowest common denominator and lowering all the time." - And yet we beat you in every statistics. But tell me, since health, education and happiness are the lowest common denominators to you, what's considered "the important" things that you beat Scandinavia in? Greed? Stupidity? The amount of drones you people have?

"As far as the world is concerned it is just a cold nursing home." - And you're seen by the rest of the world as a bunch of uneducated, moronic, self-centred, selfish, moonshine swinging, deluded, blind terrorist supporters. Frankly I'd rather be cold than M'erican. You're country is becoming obsolete (thankfully).

Hey, you guys may not be number one in health, happiness, education but you are number one in the amount of people in prison. USA! USA! USA!

What contribution does Europe's nursing home make to the world?  

You are right about prisons.  We need more capital punishment to clear them out.

So you not going to tell me why better education and health and more happiness is somehow "the lowest common denominator"? No. Thought not.

What contributions does Norway make? Well compared to you guys a lot. We aren't terrorists for one. You people can't even look after your own people (as proven) and yet you're trying to act like you're some god to the rest of the world? You fucked the rest of the world. America asking what Norway has done for the rest of the world is like John Wayne Gacy asking me when the last time I helped anyone was.
