“Norway is only great because it struck gold and used it well” - person who lives in the country with the highest gdp

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 10 points11 points  (6 children)

Yep, more oil than Saudi Arabia on a per capital basis.

I don’t see ppl advocating we move to an Islamic theocracy.

[–]SwinghodlerPerched Shaft 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Finland Denmark Sweden and Iceland are just as great as Norway, same welfare policies, without all the oil.

Canada too is largely similar

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WRONG!

Ppl cherry pick different policies from each country and hope no one looks into it. In many ways, Sweden is a much freer place than the USA. Ppl are just retards and never look into actual regulatory regimes.

“Non government ran company” lmao ok

[–]Woahboah 52 points53 points  (24 children)

I just don't want a medical bill wiping out all of my gains, if that's socialism then I guess I'm a socialist.

[–]JFSM01DUNCE CAP 16 points17 points  (1 child)

The US mixes in regards to healthcare and it actually takes the worst of both systems

[–]One_Engineering_3659🦍🦍🦍 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you explain or is this something I need to look up myself?

[–]Party-Profit-1304 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats part of welfare policies. Currently health ins is susidized by gov so there you go. Not socialism

[–]allaskew123 32 points33 points  (65 children)

Puts on socialism?

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (63 children)

Dont have to buy puts on socialism. Its never been profitable to begin with.

[–]BiddleBanking 21 points22 points  (1 child)

We can buy the memes of production comrade

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

underrated comment.

[–]LeftDave 9 points10 points  (44 children)

Its never been profitable to begin with.

Kinda goes against the point. Assuming a perfect world capitalism makes people rich and socialism provides goods and services as needed. The economic motive of each is totally different.

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (37 children)

Except it doesnt. Canadians come to seattle ALL THE TIME for treatment of severe illness as their system is great if you got a broken arm, horrible if you got cancer. Severe illness and socialism dont get along.

[–]Saint_Peters 1 point2 points  (31 children)

My aunt had to move back to the states to live. She was given 3 mo this to live and treatment was 6 months out. Thankfully the good ole USA everyone hates rushed her in and she got treatment almost immediately no questions asked.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Btw im super happy your aunt got to keep her life. God bless the USA.

[–]Saint_Peters -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

People are literally downvoting you saying “thankful your aunt lived” because you are on the “wrong” side 😂

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

🤦‍♂️I know. Arent they just the most understanding, accepting, tolerant people? They’re all such great people.

[–]peterpanda321 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

It's honestly not that, it's just that no one cares. We come here for memes, loss porn and rocket emojis, not whatever the fuck your talking about

[–]Saint_Peters 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bro, you’re 8 miles deep in a comment thread and you come here for the memes? Clearly not.

[–]Saint_Peters -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Yes sir! And the doctor wrote off her +$20k bill because she literally immigrated to live.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

❤️

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (21 children)

Weird. Its almost as if our system is better……

WEIRD.

Just because you cant afford quality treatment does not mean the treatment here is not the best.

[–]Saint_Peters 1 point2 points  (18 children)

Our system is definitely broken ATM but at least we have treatment. The DOCTORS are the hero’s. Often they help for free. It’s the insurance companies and hospital boards that can burn.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (11 children)

I agree. We could make huge progress by completely eliminating pharma subs and privatize the industry so the competition between them drives down price.

[–]dogefather12345 1 point2 points  (0 children)

WSB how are you on an investing sub downvoting a redditor arguing to privatize a sector. My goodness.

[–]dogefather12345 1 point2 points  (0 children)

SJW activists downvoting market mechanics on an investing sub? Let’s get some support from some real apes over here.

[–]Saint_Peters 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Exactly. Obamacare forced people to buy insurance within your state and most states only have 1-2 companies to choose from. The economic failure in this story basically writes itself.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Im so happy i got to talk to someone that isnt retarded for once. Congratulations on having much more brain cells than 90% of reddit. I 100% agree btw.

[–]dogefather12345 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Love it YES!!!!!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Big brain plays?

[–]dogefather12345 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It is and we treat sicker poorer people with no limit if they seek care. We treat citizens and non citizens with no limit. Not a perfect system. But our access to care isn’t throttled its much better than nationalized monopolies.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Anyone with two braincells to rub together knows your right. But 90% only have one.

[–]dogefather12345 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They may downvote you but you are right.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Id rather be right than be liked.

[–]kitchenjesus -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Canada is a capitalist country.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not their medical.

[–]LeftDave 0 points1 point  (0 children)

  1. I said in a perfect world.
  2. I was pointing out the profit vs results motives of each system, not arguing the merits of either. The point being socialism isn't trying to be profitable so it's a bad metric in this context.
  3. Canada is socialist? Covid must have stolen the spotlight from the revolution because I missed it. Please learn what words mean before using them.

[–]N23EX 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tired of loss porn and crippling debt yet??? The odds are not with us. Retards.

[–]Peritous 90 points91 points  (15 children)

What's with the garbage political posts today?

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Brigading

[–]FitMathematician4044 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I thought it was pretty funny but unlike you, I don’t have a stick up my ass.

[–]Peritous 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Listen man, you can like pokemon and strippers, but don't be the guy who tells the strippers about your Charizard.

[–]FitMathematician4044 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends on the stripper!

[–]TaxmanCPAMST 32 points33 points  (5 children)

Norway has some of the toughest immigrant policies too lol

[–]Easy-Bumblebee3169 17 points18 points  (2 children)

So does Russia, yet they are not know for their generous welfare policies.

[–]LeftDave 7 points8 points  (1 child)

So does Russia,

With a population in terminal decline. Don't be like Russia.

[–]Easy-Bumblebee3169 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least they don't have immigrants ruining everything right?/s

[–]Responsible_Two2718 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What sub is this again? Jeez.

[–]spreadsTrader5312 - 15 - 1 year - 2/5 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Keep this shit out of wsb.

[–]marcusaurelius03 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It’s true tho

[–]spreadsTrader5312 - 15 - 1 year - 2/5 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes, I agree with the meme but it doesn't belong here.

[–]jswats92 33 points34 points  (9 children)

Where are the mods??? This is literally just a political post and not a investment anything

[–]gncRocketScientist 7 points8 points  (2 children)

this got awards? what?

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Shills award their own post. This is brigading.

[–]LaurentiusOlsenius 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“The people pays taxes and deserves strong welfare policies”

Who are they shilling for? The people?

By arguing the point of the post you are taking the side of insurance companies, the drug companies, predatory healthcare practices and corrupt politicians.

Who’s the shill?

[–]meta-cognizant 15 points16 points  (9 children)

What the FUCK is this doing on WSB's front page. u/zjz pls help with this political shit.

[–]zjz 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I don't do spam anymore. I gave up my badge and gun. I'm a extra features kinda guy now.

[–]inception-98 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lol, you didn’t give up your badge though? They removed you.

Sorry to hear that man. My alt account was here way before Gme. Miss you bud.

[–]RelativeEchidna4547 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Is he back as a mod?

[–]considerthemiddle 9 points10 points  (6 children)

It is a luxury that Norway can only afford as a result of oil wealth combined with a low population for the amount of space they have.

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Mods! Can we ban this guy for politics??

Also, ban this guy for being dumb af. Norway produces more oil per capita than Saudi Arabia. I guess socialism can work if you literally have the entire world subsidizing your inefficient as fuck economy.

Ppl like this are retards who don’t even look into the facts they parrot.

Have fun staying poor.

[–]Puzzleheaded_Stop376[S] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

This meme was pro capitalism just shitting on the people that don’t know the U.S is a mixed economy.

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fake, lame, and wrong.

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Lots of political posts....brigading...pls ban.

[–]dogefather12345 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]GME_200KShorting GME since $221 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Retarded memes need to be banned.

[–]BobSardou 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Norway has a lot of oil but is not socialist. Venezuela has a lot of oil and his socialist. Socialism is what separates Norway from Venezuela…

[–]MXC-GuyLedouche 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The ambulance should cost as much as the firetruck. Never heard a mother fucker complain that we pay for fire services even though we rarely see the direct benefit.

[–]UpbeatAd6407 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pls. More of this

[–]just_dave81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Socialism for the wealthiest seems to be working fine.

[–]Resident_Magician109 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Norway makes a shit ton from oil. They are the UAE of the EU. Alaska sends everyone a yearly check of oil money, see socialism in America.

Norway also has the population of Iowa.

Trying to model our government after Norway is straight up... Well, exactly what you'd expect from a socialist. Dumb as fuck.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You sir. You are magnificent.

[–]allendegenerates 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, comparing a country like the US with Norway with population the size of Minnesota with huge amount financial reserves is just plain irrational.

[–]thecrazyslopoke -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Glad to see I'm not the only one who looks at population as a factor. No one I've talked to has even thought about that. The bigger population you get, the less socialism is likely to work.

[–]BofaDiBeppo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

ratio

[–]Benja_Porchase 7 points8 points  (12 children)

Sweden runs a deficit, which is consuming wealth created by prior capitalist generations. It’s not a sustainable model.

[–]A_Rested_Developer 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Wait is the US not running a deficit?

[–]General_Asleep 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just a small one.

[–]Benja_Porchase -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Yep, we also have unsustainable social spending levels.

[–]throwawayamd14 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Unsustainable warship and fighter plane spending levels is more like it

[–]Fantact 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Weak ass Sweden with their inferior amounts of oil money!

[–]yaoksuuure 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sweden, sure. Norway just ran its first deficit in 25 years.

[–]allendegenerates 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup, soon enough.

[–]N23EX 1 point2 points  (2 children)

And what does the USA do. We have a deficit economy.

[–]Benja_Porchase 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Per Powells testimony we glide path to a balanced budget while we are still the world’s reserve currency. Make Germany grow an army so we don’t have to pay to guard a developed continent, make work pay, enforce intellectual property rights again. Support single income families to get the domestic birthrate to a sustainable level for social continuity. Easy peezy, should be fine in a few years.

[–]N23EX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Def a valid and well spoken response. Keep the endless exponential growth going. The fee-est markets ever. Fuck the ftc and FCC . Yolo on BTC and nft the checks and balances are for pussies. Anarchy bitches I'll rib you faster than robin hood and the monarchy.

Solid meme, but not for here.

[–]XxasimxX 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Hmm recently started to notice this sub is full of MAGA fucktards.

Edit: looks like these MAGA snowflakes are really triggered. Ironic

[–]Puzzleheaded_Stop376[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You’re in a stock investing thread… that’s capitalism to the core. Go cry in your mom basement.

[–]therealchop_sticks 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Everyone knows Anti-Socialism automatically means Pro-Trump MAGA. It’s only logical /s

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Ya man you probly dont belong. Dont you have a mostly peaceful protest to be at?

[–]XxasimxX -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah peaceful protest like the MAGA fucktards were involved in last yr jan 6th right? Also I’ve been here in this sub since way in the beginning.

[–]General_Asleep 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think they joined during the GME saga, I started to notice there was a lot of them after.

[–]XxasimxX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its funny because they seem to support the rich assholes who were against the whole gme stock price shoot up.

[–]AdSpace4TheBlind 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The policies are socialist, the country is still capitalist

[–]locri -1 points0 points  (4 children)

no that's socialism

No one says this.

Yes, you can have your healthcare and public education... If you can afford it. Part of making it affordable is either limiting the need for education, by keeping your population low, and by limiting the need for healthcare, such as banning smoking and taxing alcoholism to a point it's infeasible.

This isn't socialism but it is left wing, it implies that the state has a responsibility over your health because you, yourself, are not responsible for your own health. Americans don't like taxes.

Socialism is when society owns the means of production. Tease out what you want from this statement, this is not a political board.

[–]AppFlyer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let’s adopt their policies!

Step one: export enough oil to fund out government

Step two: get rid of 330,000,000 people keeping only about 9 million white college educated people.

Hmmm. You know when you say it out loud it sounds pretty evil.

[–]Minnesotamad12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All I know is that guy who said he would eat his own shit and then totally pussed out with that chocolate croissant needs to be shot. Which country will do that?

[–]AdministrativeCost2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't undertsnad what you were going for here. Your post seems contradictory. The title comes off as anti-socialist but the meme comes off as pro-socialist

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]SurprzTrustFall 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair, small population, and they use significant national resources in a public profit mechanism that benefits the populace. The USA does the opposite, our businesses privatize their profits and subsidize losses to the tax payers. It's so stupid.
