Not Sure If I’ve Shared My Sweden Theory Here Before
June 12, 2010 11 Comments
People who like socialism, and Sweden, and cite Sweden’s (or other Scandi country’s) supposed socialism all the time as a great example of socialism, got this idea primarily because they think (or saw on TV/movies) that Swedish people are sexually attractive.
As a corollary, such people subconsciously think socialism (in particular note the obsession with government medical care) will make more people around them sexually attractive – and, in particular, sexually active. Thus increasing their (currently poor, we surmise) chances of having sex with sexually attractive people.
(UPDATE 6/14) Related: “Liberal” Matthew Yglesias fantasizes about colonialism, as long as it’s administered by “earnest Norwegians in association with an international crew of policy wonks”. Seems to me you have two choices when reading something like that: you can be utterly mystified and wonder what he’s been smoking, or you can read it simply as Matthew Yglesias’s deepest ‘desert island’ fantasy (i.e. that he would be one of the policy wonks, stranded and ‘administering’ the natives along with a bunch of hot, ‘earnest’ Norwegians). I know which one survives Occam’s Razor.
Socialism: Must be doing something right.
