Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen?

The New York Post takes a lighthearted look at the claim that Denmark and other Scandinavian countries are socialist paradises. I thought it was amusing, anyway. Among the other statistics mentioned is 5% of Danish men engage in sex with animals. 

What? Not sure I've seen that statistic mentioned about any country. More on that if you read on down. It might have been a bit long for my attention span if I hadn't found it such a fun read.

Hat tip to the Punk Rock Libertarians for the link.

This is patently false. The article is clearly biased and full of subject claims and outright lies.
For example, the suicide rate, according to a quick Google search and Wikipedia, shows that the US has a higher suicide rate than Denmark.
Also, the claims of long lines for health services is not true. Time and time again, that has been proven to be a false flag.
You should do a little more digging and fact checking before endorsing something.
Also, isn't the NY Post a tabloid rag?

You can say what you want, although it's clear you are enamored of socialism. It's a fun read, regardless.

They are misrepresenting facts. That's easy to tell by doing something called "fact checking". Also, I've lived in Denmark and know first hand what people are like there.
It's interesting that they interview an English person whose live in Denmark as if that's the best person to speak of on behalf of Danes.
Anyways, thanks for making it easier to comment. That's nice. Have you ever seen a group of Danish women? I think that explains their level of happiness, lol!

I suppose it's fun as fiction to reinforce your existing beliefs. But as a view of the world, the article is full of lort.
