A big article in the new York times has a nice long article about Norway and its socialized government. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/14/business/global/14frugal.html?_r=2&th&emc=th
All those liars who who keep on insisting communism/socialism cannot work as an economic/social system ought to shut the fuck up. I am saving this article and will whip it out EVERY time somebody will dare to claim to me the opposite.
Of course, the other side of the coin is USA where a new budget for the 'wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and a package aid to Pakistan was just approved. of course, communism/socialism cannot work in USA, since USA spends its money NOT on its people but to feed the parasites who are attached to the government and sucking its lifeblood.
