Skip to comments.Europe, a place fit for politically correct millionaires?

According to numerous media sources and several highly esteemed philantropic organizations all over the World, Europe, Canada, NYC, LA, certain corners of South East Asia and Australia boast the best surroundings for eco-friendly prosperity and success found on this planet.
Especially Europe does. If we are to trust the experts in this field, conditions for successful human life are better in Scandinavia and Central Europe than anywhere else on Earth.
Being Scandinavian, I won't deny I enjoy reading about how foreigners praise my corner of the World and talk of our our nations as an enviable place in which to live. Scandinavia sure is. Despite the Muslims and our politicians.
But like most people, I don't take these rankings too seriously. For obvious reasons.
Like I, proudly, have stated before on this forum, Danes earn the highest salaries on Earth, Norway has more US dollar millionaires per capita than any other nation and in Sweden, where I live, the $35 000 Volvo V70 is the average car. On top of that, tap water is drinkable, showers function, heating works and there are not gaping holes in the streets where you wish to drive your car.
In any case, a far more intersting matter than figuring out what city in the World has the highest net incomes and so on is the issue of what cities and nations presently display a sane approach to economy and national progress.
While many of them today are going down the drain, the economies of the Nordic Countries (Scand. + Finland) is characterized by insignificent national debt (save Iceland), if any and steady economic growth (unlike many other parts of the Western World).
In Europe as a whole, there also has been a significant shift from Socialism to Corservatism lately. Today, very few European countries are run by Socialist governments. Ten years ago most were.
Perhaps Stockholm, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Geneva etc. are not European Socialist horror stories but examples of how Capitalism could create a better future for everyone.
Furthermore, Islamism is not gaining ground anywhere over here.
Europe will not slumber forever (think I've said that too before).
No, Europe is not a multicultural, seculirized Heaven where everyone is rich, drives around in a eco-friendly little car, votes for "Green" Parties and feast on Norwegian salmon.
To Republicans, I doubt Europe would equal Hell once they would get to know it somewhat more (not saying Republicans in general know nothing about Europe).
If Europe of today would decide to terminate Muslim immigration once and for all and strive for a Capitalist, Conservative order of society - very much like both America and Europe used to be - all of Europe would soon become like the richest cities found in my part of the World.

Most livable places on Eart according to some:
Most dollar millionaires per capita on Earth:
Sweden, a nation lead by a Conservative government since 2006 (re-elected in 2010) where slums do not exist (except for certain parts of Malmö):

it is surprising to see many true social dem countries embrace and moving to capitalism and fiscal conservatism. In some aspects, europe, at least Scandinavia is more pro-business than us (even pre obama)
All the same, patriots in all of USA, Europe and every other civilized corner of the World should unite (not saying only white people know civilization).

Best of regards to each and every Patriot on this site from a small, cocky Viking nation named Sweden!
