PragerU presents "No True Socialism," Denmark Version
Lots of people think that Denmark is a Socialist Paradise. But they're wrong, you see, because Denmark isn't Socialist at all.
And how do we know that Denmark isn't Socialist? Well, for one thing, you can own private property in Denmark, unlike in those actual Socialist Countries. And you have freedom of the press in Denmark, unlike in actual Socialist Countries. And political dissenters in Denmark aren't rounded up and caged in gulags or shot- like in actual Socialist Countries.
In other words, since at PragerU "Socialism" means "Government ownership of everything, no freedom, political prisons and armed guards murdering people in the street," Denmark can't POSSIBLY be Socialist. Because Denmark doesn't have that stuff.
Neither does France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Canada....all countries PragerU has labeled "Socialist" in the past. But those countries are different Because Reasons. Actually, not Because Reasons. Because PragerU can't put together a consistent, honest argument - that's for it's Master's program, probably.
Meanwhile, it's inevitable that PragerU will eventually take aim (no bad pun intended) at the restrictive gun laws of the European Union, which includes....well, non-Socialist Denmark. So Denmark is a happy, free country which makes it all but impossible for the average citizen to own a firearm. Since Denmark is NOT Socialist, and IS successful and happy, that must mean that restrictive gun laws fit well into a Capitalist society that is both successful and happy. Right, Prager U?
