The name Socialist democracy hasn’t anything to do with the democracy level in the nordic countries. (I live in Sweden). To keep it very short: the name implies that its focused on the people, but it does not want to rule by default - hence democracy. Socialist democracy (Or social democrats - 28% support - as the party is called) has its long list of problems, but its a very civil form of state.
I feel you guys miss a lot of what the HK events is, and what China is doing.
Hong Kong sort of a country by itself (yeah its complicated) that has democracy (or so they thought), there is absolutely no democratic “mass-movement” in main land China, quite the contrary. (I’ve been to China as well, if that give any credit). China is getting rid of dissidents, putting “terrorists” in camps and harvesting their organs, setting up mass surveillance systems. I can’t argue its “something new” but its something that is newly reported.
In HK the police has killed several of the movements “leaders” and arrested, terrorized and beaten many other peaceful protesters
This is a bit OT, but what do you think we do over here? I work at a company that would be totally capable of producing FP’s (But would never do it, because its not our core business), sure it would probably become a bit more expensive. (I’m intrigued to calculate how much more)
That is not true, in a democratic, transparent and free speech environment companies can ultimately serve their customers and ignore borders.
