Is Denmark Socialist?

Is Denmark Socialist?

I am a citizen of Denmark, the Disneyland of socialism, where everybody is happy and healthy. Forget the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela and all those power-mad Marxists who got it wrong. Denmark is the model to follow. There’s just one problem. It’s a fantasy. For it to be true, Denmark would have to be a socialist country. But it’s not. If it were, it would have gone “Venezuela” a long time ago. Sorry to bring all the new fans of…

Are Trump’s policies socialist? | We The Internet TV

Donald Trump was trying to pull us back from what Europe is becoming, they’re a socialist style government. Well for someone who’s so viciously opposed to socialism, Donald Trump is quite attracted to socialistic domestic policies. He imposes billions of dollars of tariffs on Chinese products and then the way he decides to cleverly counteract the profound economic costs of those dumb trade policies is to create billions of dollars of subsidies for the affected parties here in America. That…

Euro Crisis, Neo-Liberalism and Undoing the Welfare State

PAUL JAY: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Paul Jay in Washington. The eurozone crisis continues to push world stock markets on a roller coaster ride. And much of the focus has been on Greece, and now Italy, and state sovereign debt. But the real issues are perhaps more profound and more structural questions are really at stake. Now joining us to talk about all of this is Gerry Epstein. Gerry is the codirector of the PERI institute in…

Who Will Be The Next Superpower Nation?

Who Will Be The Next Superpower Nation?

Throughout history, superpowers have risen and fallen. The Roman Empire – the most dominant power in the ancient world, tore across Europe and the Middle East in the 2nd century before eventually losing grip on its territories. Likewise The Mongol Empire led by Genghis Khan was the world’s largest land empire, yet after divisions separated in the 13th century, they finally lost their grip. The British Empire expanded through trading ventures, and by the early twentieth century had become history’s…

Kamall: Nazis were socialists

Kamall: Nazis were socialists

Thank you very much Mr. President, Mr. Vice Presidents. Mr. Bullmann, I would remind you, when you talk about right wing extremists you have to remember that Nazis were national socialists, it’s a strain of socialism. So lets not pretend, it’s a left wing ideology they want the same thing as you. Let’s be quite clear. So, Mr. President despite all that.. you don’t like the truth do you? (Timmermans): You know who they killed first? Socialists! Come on, it’s…

European Socialism – COLD WAR DOCUMENTARY

European Socialism – COLD WAR DOCUMENTARY

History lessons sometimes depict the Cold War as an all or nothing struggle. You will see clearly delineated maps of who is communist, who is capitalist, and what the sides are. Now, I know many of you are fans of our sister channel Kings and Generals, so this might hurt to hear, but let me tell you a secret. The reality on the ground about the Cold War is it was always an ideological mess. Ideologies and alliances seem cut…

How to travel geopolitically? | Ask The Right Question with George Friedman

If you want to go to the country and find out how it’s doing, there are ways to think about this. I like to go into a market and watch the people usually women shopping. If they look at the can and look at the price and put it down, I know things are a little hard. if they take the can and don’t think about it and put it in their eyes: ah okay. Then I go to other…
