Sometimes I think it would be great to move to a Nordic country for all the glorious social democratic stuff. Then I realize I'm a monolingual anglophone who is uncomfortable with change and think, hmm, maybe I should just try to make that stuff happen in my own country.
@saper The Swiss system, from what I've read, is intriguing. Certainly not Nordic/socialist, but very interesting. The long democratic tradition -- a tradition quite different from most modern democracies -- has resulted in something that seems quite interesting (as an outsider, anyway).
@asko I realized, as soon as I sent that toot, how ironic it sounded. I'm uncomfortable with change more in the sense of the huge cultural change that would come with moving to a new country on the other side of the ocean.
I'd be quite happy with some major political changes in my home country (since it would, in my opinion, taking what I am familiar with but making it better).
