These stories pulled from Sweden/Netherlands/Canada/Aus etc. (pick any modern democracy) are used to rationalize the backward circumstances of the US. In theory this effort in Sweden sounds/feels alien. In practice, its pretty benign, and probably results in positive outcomes. The same with things like national healthcare, public schools that work, and gun control. In theory they can sound like a real challenge to one's freedom, but in practice, the outcomes are very enjoyable, positive, and make for a better society. Anecdotes can always be foudn to challenge this, but the numbers speak for themselves.
When I try to explain the US to outsiders, I emphasize that CHANGE is often attacked. The prevailing orthodoxy, no matter how sub-standard, is jealously defended by 25-30% of the populace, and always will be. This is the case, even if change would result in improved outcomes for the specific individual with the objection.
Also, America has the best universities in the world. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17368108Hit the submit button below if you want us to review the post.
