I take it for granted that those people yelling ”Socialism” at everything left of hunting homeless people for sport don’t have the capacity or can concentrate for an article this long, but now that you’re on lockdown, try.
Sweden, a country that is the definition of Socialist democracy. If you weren’t so scared of helping out your fellow man (but you call yourself a christian) then this could actually be good for your society.
Megan Penhoet (Stanford University), Seattle, USA:
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven took to the airwaves to address students after this decision was made and said more or less: “Students, this is not an extra vacation. You are still expected to learn and try. You are old enough to manage distance learning and show self discipline. You can do this.” I am paraphrasing from his Swedish address. I stopped dead in my tracks when I heard this report. Good gracious! I only wish the president of the United States addressed the 80 million or so American students with such a message of support and encouragement. I found this level of national leadership aimed at Sweden’s 16-25 year olds to be personal and powerful.
