    OMFG!! They’re all democratic socialist countries! The world is going to hell in a hand basket! You think the U.S. can learn from the Nordic countries? Of course. But will we? Not if we have ANY Republicans in Congress. They really don’t give a rat’s a$$ about the people. Maybe if each one of us was incorporated……

      True, JM, but they are also low population countries in comparison to the US, and even accounting for recent immigration, they are fairly homogeneous countries. The US doesn’t have that advantage, except in isolated regions. Try comparing happiness in major US cities versus that of small towns. The sense of community is lost in the larger, denser cites. But, true, we can learn lots from those countries. If only so many weren’t so selfish.
