Socialism's Final Phase

h/t: Althouse

Remember that admittedly, proudly, socialist country of Sweden? 

‘They don’t want to integrate’: Fifth night of youth rioting rocks Stockholm
For years, Sweden – one of Europe’s most tranquil countries, famous for its attractive immigration policies and generous welfare system – has been accepting an influx of immigrants, which now make up about 15 per cent of its population. These migrants have failed to integrate into Swedish society, and are only in the country to enjoy the country’s social benefits system, Swedish journalist Ingrid Carlqvist told RT.

“The problem is not from the Swedish government or from the Swedish people,” the editor in chief of Dispatch International said. “The last 20 years or so, we have seen so many immigrants coming to Sweden that really don’t like Sweden. They do not want to integrate, they do not want to live in [Swedish] society: Working, paying taxes and so on.”

“The people come here now because they know that Sweden will give them money for nothing. They don’t have to work, they don’t have to pay taxes – they can just stay here and get a lot of money. That is really a problem,” Carlqvist added.
Do you suppose that anyone will read about this country that was once the prime example of socialists everywhere and understand that this, in one form or another, is always what socialism is reduced to?

What country will socialists point to now?

Free marketers can point to America (1865-1912) and Hong Kong as fine examples of economic freedom in action.
