That's an often voiced opinion and a fair one to put forward here, but Nordic countries had two things going for them.Hardly!
It is the nordic countries bernie refers to.
They take in their share of refugees these days, Almost 25% of Swedens population is immigrant, or first generation.LOL Bernie was heaping praise on Venezuela not all that long ago.
Sanders distances himself from 2011 editorial on his Senate website praising the American dream in VenezuelaAs the political situation in Venezuela deteriorates, an editorial endorsed by presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., that praised the socialist country as a place where the "American dream is more apt to be realized" in 2011.www.washingtonexaminer.com
And those Nordic countries have small populations and are quite the same racially.

Sweden has over 8% muslim population while the US has 1.1%.
The Danish monarchy is more than 1,000 years old. if youre waiting for their demise, I wouldnt hold my breath.That's an often voiced opinion and a fair one to put forward here, but Nordic countries had two things going for them.
(1) They were largely homogeneous, as the population shifts to a multicultural population the people become more selfish and the collective approach no longer works. The Nordic countries are in real trouble. This has nothing to do with race. It has to do with people that do not share a common background, culture, and ideology simply cannot pull off Socialism. Socialism only works in a contained mono cultural setting and even then it can become a horror show. Capitalism rewards a nation when the society of individuals all look out for their own best interests thereby working and striving. That works best in a multicultural setting as variety and differences can be leveraged to improve at a much greater rate. I probably used way too many words to get this point across, but I didn't want anyone confusing this a slam against any race.
(2) They don't provide for their own defense. That allows them to afford their heavy social programs. Those go away as budgets tighten up. Socialist societies fall apart under conflict. Capitalist ones don't.
Sorry... that's how it goes. Socialism in the U.S.A. is a ridiculous dream of failure that will cost so many so much. It can happen, but the results will be an incredibly lowered standard of living for all involved.
