Despite claims by socialists like AOC and Bernie Sanders, their “Democratic Socialism” bears no resemblance to Nordic social democracy. There is nothing democratic about it.
American Socialism is Not European Social Democracy
The use of the adjective “democratic” serves to camouflage socialism’s abysmal moral, political, and economic failure
One of the biggest misnomers in popular culture is the notion of “democratic socialism”. It does not exist. The lie socialist politicians like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC), and America’s left have been promoting is a fabricated myth. It is a clever ploy intended to deceive.
The use of the adjective “democratic” serves to camouflage socialism’s abysmal moral, political, and economic failures. American socialism is wholly Marxist based. In fact, it inherently rejects welfare-state, social democratic schemes. It sees those alternatives as copouts. The new Biden administration, shepherded by todays increasingly left-wing Democratic Party, will retake the hardcore “long march through the institutions” Obama began.
Highlighting a mythological variant of the “Nordic model” (Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden), an oscillating fusion of a welfare-state structure with varying degrees of social democratic purports, America’s socialist movement is on another playing field. In his address at Havard’s Kennedy School in 2015, former Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen clarified difference between the “Nordic model” and socialism. “I know that some people in the U. S. associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism”, he said.
“Therefore, I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy”. “The Nordic model is an expanded welfare state”, Rasmussen continued, “… but it is also a successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life as you wish”.
Carl Bildt, Sweden’s Prime Minister from 1991 to 1994, also sent out a clear warning to Americans about the effects of socialism, to awaken consciousness from this sham promoted by America’s communist:
“Bernie Sanders was lucky to be able to get to the Soviet Union in 1988 and praise all its stunning socialist achievements before the entire system and empire collapsed under the weight of its own spectacular failures.”
