Which hurt Carol's feelings more, being fired, or seeing the street pump up Yahoo stock over 6% because she's gone? - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Pondering why all prosperous European nations have strong social safety nets, and why the U.S. doesn't. It may not be that people in the U.S. are more sociopathically selfish. They have no problem taking care of their own. They just don't want to take care of "those people". The goal of limited government is just rationalization.
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” –John Steinbeck - Eivind
Those prosperous European nations also had largely ethnically homogenous populations when they set up their systems whereas the US capitalist class has always been able to divide the other classes by getting them to concentrate on differences of race and ethnicity instead of seeing the more important class issues they have in common. - Spidra Webster
Eivind: that quote is actually disputed, as there is no record of Steinbeck actually saying this. Wikiquote says that the quote originated as a possible paraphrase in the book "A Short History of Progress" by Ronald Wright. - Tudor Bosman
You do have to look at the current European economic crisis as another chapter on if that model will actually work long term. - Eric - Final Countdown
I don't know, even in Germany and the UK, despite the enactment of significant austerity measures, their safety nets still seems far more robust than what we have in the U.S. The economic crisis may well decide whether or not the EU will continue to exist, but there isn't the radical call for complete dismantling of the State that exists here in the U.S. - Victor Ganata
Thanks, Tudor :) edit: It does express what I believe to be one of the factors behind why disadvantaged citizens would vote for a party to the right, though. In Norway, at least, the right populists also have the advantage of presenting a simpler model of the world and its actors (which again allows for catchier slogans and makes it very easy to blame immigrants and other minorities for everything that's perceived to be wrong with society). - Eivind
Maybe because some us can't stomach the thought of 3rd generation unemployed. Also, do you like 10% unemployment rate in good times? It just not efficient. - Dario Gomez
I wasn't thinking of Spain. When I think of great social democracies, I think of the Nordic countries. The only Northern European area I can think of that has ethnicity/race issues similar to what we've had in the US is Northern Ireland (which, not coincidentally, was invaded and colonized). There differences in religion and background were systematically used to keep the working class... more... - Spidra Webster
The unemploment rates in Germany and the UK are better than they are in the U.S. right now, and aren't much higher than they were in the U.S. preceding the GFC, so I'm not sure where the 10% figure is from. If you're talking about Spain, Portugal, Italy, or Greece, well, I wouldn't really consider them in the same tier of prosperity. - Victor Ganata
Did you look at France? That's the figure I usually keep in my head for economic ineptitude. Anyways, it's hard to make blanket statements, or get the correct data, if you're going to cherry pick European nations. Can you then state what nations your think are included in as prosperous European? - Dario Gomez
I do think immigration has a huge influence on how people in the U.S. culturally consider as truly American. Throughout history, the U.S. has always required massive importation of labor, but I don't think we've ever come to grips with what it means to be truly assimilate. With longstanding ethnic minorities like the Basque or the Scottish, do a lot of the majority populations really... more... - Victor Ganata
Interesting, so when you look at the adjusted rates, France is still at worst on par with the U.S. Everyone else seems to be doing better. And I suspect that, precisely because of the safety nets, being unemployed in France is not as horrible as being unemployed in the U.S. - Victor Ganata
Unemployment in Germany is helped by the Kurzabeit, I would love to see a similar program in America, but when I brought it up along with others, it was uniformally the most despised change I proposed. Yourself included in the group. I didn't include the government funding, but that's because I didn't remember that being part of it. I'm not opposed to that offset, though. Unemployment funds saved could be used to offset the cost. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Victor your observation is Interesting and true only if you look at the data post, hope and change. - Key West
You mean post-Global Financial Crisis? Naturally. - Victor Ganata
Let's face it, Europeans don't have the relexive antipathy to the State that Americans have, so it's not surprising. But I find myself speculating about why that reflexive antipathy even exists, and my understanding of U.S. history just leads me in a certain direction. - Victor Ganata
On the flipside, now that Europe is seeing massive immigration from far-flung regions of the world, they seem to be experiencing a lot of the tensions that have marked U.S. history. - Victor Ganata
All those prosperous European nations already had high unemployment before the crisis, we have now reached parity. - Key West
Tiffany, even then, do Norweigians consider the Sami or ethnic Finns living in Norway non-Norweigian, though? - Victor Ganata
We're clearly doing worse than almost all those countries in those comparisons when the statistics are adjusted to U.S. concepts. And again, I suspect the experience of being unemployed there isn't as bad as the experience of being unemployed here. - Victor Ganata
Development aid. - Key West
Show me where the prosperous European "entitlement" economies are on this list ==> The Most Generous Countries on Earth - - Key West
But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe the myth of rugged individualism has become so ingrained by repeated beating into people's skulls that the most ardent believers don't even fathom the original social rationale for these concepts. What can I say, divide and conquer works. The ruling classes don't even have to do anything anymore. - Victor Ganata
Key West, that's completely tangential. So what? What exactly is the virtue of dumping pittances in other countries when you can't--or won't--take care of your own? - Victor Ganata
You think it to be tangential ? Giving according to this study correlates with a happiness index. Are the citizens of countries with strong social safety nets unhappy ? The OP says we in the U.S. may be more sociopathically selfish. I happen to disagree and I posted hard data,which is contrary to the premise. - Key West
"They have no problem taking care of their own." & "What exactly is the virtue of dumping pittances in other countries when you can't--or won't--take care of your own?" Seems anti-thetical and contradictory, even though I know it's different scale. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Tiffany, I said "largely ethnically homogenous", which is true as I was comparing them to the US population, which is emphatically heterogenous. The Sami, at the time that Nordic social democracies were put in place, were not really settled outside of their ancestral lands in the far north in any great numbers. Your average Swedish, Norwegian or Finnish worker wouldn't have encountered... more... - Spidra Webster
Incidentally the poor are also America's most generous givers. - Key West
I was going to weigh in on the Sami and Kven history and status in Norway, but this conversation seems to have fragmented quite a bit. I guess we could make it another thread if you're interested, Spidra and Tiffany :) - Eivind
Actually, then, you misread my OP. I'm arguing our lack of safety nets *isn't* because we're sociopathically selfish, but because historically, it's been easy to pit different groups of workers against each other and to get them to work against their own interests with things like the myth of rugged individualism, and racism, and the like. - Victor Ganata
I'm sure you could school me, Eivind. I don't consider myself expert at all on it. However, I do stand by my statement that compared to the US, Northern European countries were largely ethnically/racially homogenous at the time their social democracies were instituted. - Spidra Webster
(How I see it, Spidra and Tiffany: :) ) - Eivind
It isn't the mere existence of heterogenous populations that makes it such that we don't have a social safety net. It's the way the existence of a heterogenous population has made it easy for the upper class to play the other classes off against each other. So it's difficult for them to see their common interest and hang on to that political will. In Cuba, there was a revolution. We... more... - Spidra Webster
Heh. I don't like fighting! I get enough of that at home. ;-) - Spidra Webster
For something a bit different: I think Americans actually like being productive and look down on waste. Socialist economies have a lower growth rate than capitalist economies; a big factor of this is that government redistribution is a damper on productivity. Socialist schemes take X dollars from the productive sectors and hand out X - y dollars, y being the cost of employing... more... - Kevin L
I for one think that both the left and right in American politics are flawed. On the left is collectivism: socialism, safety nets, unionization, etc. Their ideal is equality, their means force. On the right is protectionism: mercantilism, crony capitalism, and so forth. Their ideal is national glory and their method is force. Each is right to point out the other's flaws, but both ignore their own problems and the historical examples of how their patterns of thought lead to poverty and ruin. - Kevin L
Empirically speaking, all developed countries are essentially operating on some form of mixed economy, some hybrid of socialist and laissez-faire capitalist policies. So the question is really where you fall on the spectrum. Since a laissez faire capitalist economy has *never* been implemented, anymore than a pure communist system has ever been implemented, I don't believe there's any data showing that laissez faire capitalism is a priori more efficient. Boom and bust seems rather wasteful to me. - Victor Ganata
There are plenty of countries with good social safety nets on this productivity list, Kevin: - Spidra Webster
The Austrian school has pretty thoroughly shown that booms and busts are not disjointed from government interference. In fact, they almost always follow the introduction of central monetary manipulation. - Kevin L
"[the left's] means [are] force" ... oh lord. - Andrew C (✔)
Force as in coercion. - Kevin L
Yes, I know. I was rolling my eyes at the (IMO deeply stupid) glibertarian catchphrase that anything they don't like is "coercion". - Andrew C (✔)
I mean, really. Unionism is force/coercion? Just how do you call independent actors banding together to negotiate as a group 'coercion'? - Andrew C (✔)
The Austrian economists are a bunch of quacks that refuse to admit that empirical evidence is valid, so... - Victor Ganata
Key West - Generosity as measured by charitable behavior is a misleading metric as there is less of a need to be charitable in countries with good social safety nets. Foreign aid as a percentage of GDP would be a better measure, and in this regard the "European entitlement economies" lead the pack: - Ken Morley
Point taken, and I did read into the intent of the OP. My apologies. - Key West from FreshFeed

Marcellus Shale: Top Shale Producer in One Decade.
The United States has become a mecca for natural gas production, with a specialization in shale extraction. The U.S. has been lucky enough to have all these shale plays in our own back yards, and some are going to be more lucrative than others. This is especially true when you begin thinking long term. Which shale play will last for years to come? According to David Fessler, the Marcellus shale is here to stay, and here is why. - Key West from Bookmarklet

If people from Apple really did impersonate police, they ought to be going to prison.
Yeah, you'd think that Apple would go through official channels again, like last time. The conspiracy theorist and Apple apologist in me make me think someone is just trying to make them look bad. - Victor Ganata
Now I can't decide if it's actually less disturbing that the SFPD *did* help Apple after all and they just didn't document it for some reason. - Victor Ganata
There's been an update at the link you posted. Supposedly the SFPD admitted that they did send people to that house, to help Apple investigators. - Victor Ganata
I'm seeing this whole thing as a publicity stunt. Prototype lost/stolen twice consecutively? Yeah, right. After the first time, the prototypes should either be chained to the users or be forbidden from leaving the premises. - Arlan K.
Victor, in a weird way I find it more disturbing - Apple has hired former police personnel as private contractors, and they're apparently able to call in their buddies to go harass people without a warrant, and without any accountability unless someone makes a big enough fuss. It makes me wonder what other companies the SFPD is willing to go harass random people for. - Jennifer Dittrich

Secret anti-racist shirts covertly distributed to neo-Nazis – Boing Boing
"Anti-racist activists snuck trick t-shirts into a music festival with a large neo-Nazi turnout; the shirts bore a crypto-racist slogan that faded on first washing to reveal a plea to reconsider "militant right-wing lifestyle." The shirts, which bore a skull and crossbones symbol and the word 'Hardcore Rebels,' faded upon washing to reveal a hidden message: "What happened to your shirt can happen to you. We can help you break with right-wing extremism." The T-shirts were the work of Exit Deutschland, a group that helps young people transition out of militant right-wing lifestyles. "With these T-shirts we wanted to make ourselves known among right-wingers, especially amongst young ones who are not yet fully committed to the extreme right," said Exit founder Bernd Wagner." - Me from Bookmarklet

Political Animal - Cantor's wealthy backers: raise our taxes -
[Politico:] "A few wealthy donors have called Cantor to tell him they wouldn't mind if their taxes are raised. During two closed meetings this week -- one with vote-counting lawmakers, and another with the entire conference -- Cantor told colleagues that some well-heeled givers have told them they're willing to pay more taxes. Cantor, according to an aide, has responded that House Republicans aren't standing up for the wealthy, but rather for the middle class, who want to see their taxes stay low." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"As a substantive matter, Cantor, as usual, has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. House Republicans are exclusively standing up for the wealthy, while demanding harsh cuts to public investments that benefit everyone else. For that matter, "the middle class" have said they want and fully expect tax increases to be part of a debt-reduction compromise." - Andrew C (✔)
