Denmark and the Netherlands are good working examples of socialised nations that are free.
If you think that the police state you live in, with more citizens locked up than Stalin’s Russia, is free, then you’ve been drinking the Kool-Ade.
Even Iran. I dropped into a “Mediterranean” Market yesterday and they had a lot of Persian stuff. I miss that sweet land. I can do without the a Third Reich America is becoming, but I’d love to visit Isfahan again.
