Sweden is often regarded as the success of democratic socialism, but there are lots of problems. Treatment queues are long and expensive treatment is often denied. There are companies whose business plan is to fly swedes to Poland to get medical treatment and/or dental care because the queues are too long in Sweden. In most cases it's even illegal to pay for medical care out of your own pocket, because "it wouldn't be fair". It's better to let people die than having them pay for medical care if they can afford it. People paying for care step out of the line, so those who cannot afford to pay the cost themselves get treatment quicker. But we couldn't do that here in Sweden - that would be neoliberal, and that's the devil.

I am white european male in my mid-twenties, I look like the average dude. On my vacation to the US in june this year, I hade to turn on my macbook in three of the six security checks we passed through (we covered a handful of states during the trip). They wasn't interested in any of the content though, they just wanted to see it running. But being a caucasian white man in tidy clothes isn't enough to be safe.
