I can tell you. It's all about money.

The Nordic have a high standard of living because they found a lot of oil in the North Sea.

They can provide a lot of government services to people because they can afford to. Income tax alone would not be enough money to fund services to that degree.

If in another part of the world their governments had good intentions but no large source of money, they couldn't afford to do this.

Another secret for the Nordic is they have declared the oil to be property of the people, the funds from the sale of which are to be spent by the government on things that will benefit the people (call it a kind of socialism). If the same oil had become the property of some prospector than nordic services would not be so well funded.

The only problem is that the oil, which is extracted from the seabed and sold so that the money can benefit the nordic people is damaging the whole world (including their own part of the world). If the environment was given some monetary value it would be some astromical figure. Many people derive their income from the environment. When you feed your people by selling oil you could deprive some farmer on the other side of the world. It is like stealing from them to enrich yourself. My country is also guilty of such things.

Timor-Leste

However, my impression is that northern Europe implements social democracy at home and Neoliberalism internationally. they still rely mainly on international exploitation to maintain the domestic welfare level.

A political compass which is more neutral than this one (the producer belongs to the lower left corner), but slightly outdated. Described about 2020.

Analysis from reddit:

Quote:
many of these names are completely alien to english audience so here's the context:

CCP - Chinese Communist Party.

Pinky (小粉红) - a derogatory term for vocal, hyper-nationalistic netizens who voluntarily defend ccp on all issues. (more descriptions)

Industrial-holic(工业党) - an intellectual group that worships industrial revolution and believes all political and social structure should be subservient to industrialization.

Ruguanist(入关学) - a recently emerged online group using cryptic 17th century history analogy to convey their message, that US is a declining empire and China should take over its place as the center of world order, by any means necessary.

Falungong(法轮功) - a religious cult purged and expelled by CCP from mainland China in 1999, now operates many far right medias based in US to spread anti-CCP messages on internet.

New Left(新左派) - a broad term for the new generation of serious leftists in china, often focused on criticizing the chinese economic reform and its neoliberal tendencies. (wiki)

Otaku Left(宅左) - a term for the phenomenon of growing leftist tendency among japanese anime-loving teenagers in China.

996ICU - a non-cooperation movement against the forced overtime working culture in China, launched in march 2019. (wiki)

Countryside Feminist(田园女权) - a derogatory term to describe many chinese women who label themselves as feminists but cherry pick the rights they want while evading social responsibilities.

Minyun(民运) - short for "Chinese Democracy Movements", mainly protesters and sympathizers of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protest, most of them were later driven out from china and continued to vocally oppose one-party rule. (wiki)

Auntologist(姨学) - a cult-like following of a historian called Liu Zhongjing and his extremely(wacky) anti-ccp, anti-progressivism ideology that promoted the complete balkanization of China and Han chinese. (if you really want to know more)

Hong Kong Pan-Democrat - Pan-Democracy Camp is the main opposition camp in Hong Kong politics and major participant of the ongoing protest. (wiki)

The understanding of "New Left" here is different from mine. I think this is an outdated and uninformed descriptive term. It has no meaning in the political debate at least in 2022.

10.12.2018, Deutsche Welle:
Environmental groups claim that in light of the economic downturn, China is beginning to place a renewed emphasis on coal power generation, causing environmental pollution.

26.07.2022, Deutsche Welle:
However, a multinational research team led by the University of Leipzig in Germany has found a counterintuitive phenomenon: controlling air pollution may lead to accelerated warming of the climate.

How do you evaluate Ukrainian President Zelensky?
The original source has been deleted.

Quote:
Zelensky nominally graduated from Kiev University of economics. In fact, his education level is very low, that is, the level of primary school and junior high school. When filming, he often misspelled words and had many awkwardbehaviors. However, since he is now president, he has deleted all relevant content from twitter. Only BiliBili and Baidu tieba can watch relevant videos.

However, although Zelensky is illiterate and incompetent in governing the country, he is one of the best masters in conspiracy and power struggle. He manipulated Ukraine from top to bottom. The result of the Western election system must be such a ridiculous and hateful president.

I. Corruption

Since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainian government has been corrupt and becoming more and more serious. Zelensky filmed "the people's public servant", pretending to be just and satirizing the corruption of Yushchenko, Tymoshenko and Poroshenko, which won the favor of the Ukrainian people.

Ukrainian society has been blinded by Western ideas for a long time, and the people's consciousness is generally low. They rarely reflect on the fact that corruption comes from the unrestricted power of the capitalist system. Instead, they simply attribute the responsibility to the president, thinking that a new president would be good. They were as simple as children. When they saw that Yushchenko and Poroshenko were bad people and Zelensky pretended to satirize Yushchenko and Poroshenko, they thought that Zelensky was a good person and elected this funny entertainer who was inferior to junior high school students as president.

However, in fact, the contradiction between Zelensky and Tymoshenko and Yushchenko is just the uneven distribution of the spoils among Ukrainian politicians. Tymoshenko and Yushchenko took bribes. Is Zelensky clean? Zelensky's family also owns a lot of property overseas. However, the domestic media in Ukraine are prohibited from reporting these, which can only be seen in the uncontrolled media of China and Russia.

II. Neo-Nazis

When Zelensky first came to power, he pretended to be open and honest and even made an anti Nazi speech But he soon revealed his prototype and began to reverse the case of the notorious Peter liula and Stepan Bandra. This is a deliberate plot——

1. At first, Zelensky's minions took advantage of the people's yearning for a better future and said: "the Warren massacre and other things are old historical accounts. We should play down the pain and face the future!"

2. When the Ukrainian people listened to these lies, Zelensky and his party began to carry out the second step of the plan. They cunningly disguised themselves as neutrals and used some flaws in historical research that were not rigorous enough to question Warren's number of victims. "I'm against Stepan Bandra, but Warren really died 100000 people? If 100,000 people died, it would be equivalent to, for every family in the area, having a member die. But my relatives are in Warren. Why didn't anyone in the family die? "

Or pretend to be sarcastic and say, "what is 100000? Isn't it 300000 or one million? Isn't it 100 million?"

In this way, people's hatred of Stepan Bandra was further reduced, and there was a suspicion that the criticism of these people in the Soviet Union period was "not completely true" and "deliberately exaggerated" or even "smeared".

3. Since the life of Petliura and Stepan Bandera can be re-discussed, Zelensky and his lackeys immediately intervened strongly in this discussion, turning the historical discussion into a neo-Nazi rehash with executive power. They used the current Russia-Ukraine crisis to accuse everyone who criticized Stepan Bandera as a traitor and a Russian spy. They start with influential public figures, and when the public figures are cleaned up, ordinary people will be even less able to fight back. In this way, it is not surprising that Ukraine is full of neo-Nazis.

With Zelensky's level of education, would he really be interested in history? Obviously not. The only reason why Zelensky was so vocal about reversing Stepan Bandera's case was to be second Stepan Bandera. He envied the power of the Nazis who killed, burned and controlled everything, and wished he could be a "hero" too.

III. power and influence

Zelensky presented himself as a neo-Nazi, imitated the Nazis in every way, and made people worship himself as they did Hitler. His portraits were hung in the streets; texts concocted for him by his secretary were sent to various schools and forced on the Ukrainian people.

In fact, everyone has their own opinion. There is nothing inherently wrong with a person liking Zelensky and worshipping him, and it is his due right to do so. But Zelensky's group deliberately blurs the line between the public and personal spheres and promotes Zelensky's admiration by coercion, which is a naked Nazi act. Now in Ukraine, if someone criticizes Zelensky, the Ukrainian security services and the Azov battalion never ask whether the criticism is right or wrong, but simply arrest the person as a Russian spy. Ukrainian schools must adopt the textbooks designated by the Zelensky group, which are full of sycophancy to Zelensky and hatred of Russia, or they will have to close down and face charges of illegal school operation.

The Ukrainian security services, which have always been perfunctory about criminal offences such as theft, robbery, illegal detention, and abuse, are very aggressive in arresting anyone who dares to oppose Zelensky. After all, they knew very well who their boss was, and those police officers who "didn't know" were themselves dismissed or sent to prison on various charges by Zelensky.

Since the 1980s, the Ukrainian people have long been poisoned by the vulgar Western concept of so-called "pragmatism". When they saw the corruption of soldiers and police officers, and when they saw these people dismissed or arrested by Zelensky, they thought that Zelensky was right in terms of the results. They did not see whether the process was fair and transparent, and whether Zelensky took the opportunity to install his own henchmen. In this way, Zelensky took control of all the violent machines in Ukraine and was able to oppress civilians as he pleased.

IV. "Friends"

Zelenski and U.S. President Joe Biden are in cahoots. Zelenski is well aware that the United States is a pillar of his own power and that the same criminal polity on both sides supports each other. Similar are the rotten countries of Britain, France and Germany where the bourgeoisie waste money around and the laborers work as cattle, which form a bandit gang with the U.S. and Ukraine to plunder Russia, Iran and Afghanistan.

In the media controlled by Zelensky's henchmen, there is a cult of the United States, Americans and President Biden everywhere. This admiration goes far beyond the union of diplomatic interests and even distorts the values of young Ukrainians. Anyone who opposes it is accused of being a "Russian spy" or a "Donetsk traitor". Obviously, the reason is that Zelensky is afraid of being isolated for his own perverse actions, so he always mentions himself alongside Biden, creating a brotherly atmosphere between Biden and Zelensky (sarcastically called father and son by Russian and Chinese netizens), and deceiving the people by using the prestige of others in this way.

Some Ukrainian teenage girls have gone so far as to tweet that they are in love with the 70-year-old Biden, despite Biden's personal praise for the historical butchery of the U.S. trampling on Ukrainian sovereignty. These girls are the epitome of the "European womb" that Ukraine has become.

V. War and Peace

Zelensky and his henchmen have done a lot of bad things, none more so than the Russo-Ukrainian war. Ukraine was far less powerful than Russia, and even if it achieved a few small victories, it was only a matter of time before it would eventually lose.

Therefore, from a rational point of view, it is in the best interest of the Ukrainian people to actively negotiate peace with Russia.

However, Zelensky could not negotiate peace. Because he put his image on this war, trying to create the image of the most heroic "hero" in the world, who personally defended Kiev to the death, by all means. Once peace is negotiated, Zelensky's image will be bankrupt. The neo-Nazis that Zelensky had worked so hard to cultivate over the years would turn on him and tear him apart.

Right now (March 2022), a new wave of Russian offensives has already started, and there will be continuous attacks in the future. The "dumpling" circle east of the Dnieper River will sooner or later close, and sooner or later Ukraine will not be able to hold out, for which we do not know how many people will die. The poor Ukrainian people could die any way, but not by Russian soldiers. The people of Ukraine voted for Zelensky and were kidnapped by this clown's selfishness on a chariot without knowing it, and will eventually pay the price in blood.

Postscript. Will tomorrow be better?

All those dictators and traitors on the head of history, China's Chiang Kai-shek, Korea's Lee Seung-wan, Cambodia's Ronaldo, Cuba's Batista, Chile's Pinochet, etc., no matter how powerful and blessed they are in power, they will eventually fall to pieces. From this point of view, the clown Zelensky will sooner or later be swept into the garbage heap of history, there is only a suspense is the time and the way!

However, the elimination of a tyrant never means victory, it is just a new beginning. Change of dynasties brings war and chaos, which is never rare in the Third World. Combined with Ukraine's long-standing anti-Russian propaganda, it will not accept Russia's help even if order gets out of hand, and Russia may not be happy to provide it. The Zelensky gang's claim that "without Zelensky, Ukraine would fall into chaos" is not entirely alarmist, but use a real surgical risk to prevent patients from having malignant tumors removed. Whether Ukraine will see prosperity and progress or warlord chaos can ultimately only be decided by the Ukrainian people.

In 2022, do you have the illusion that both Europe and America are about to perish?

Quote:
The time when life in Europe and America was in dire straits was not now, but the first 30 years after the founding of the people's Republic.

After the reform and opening up, life in Europe and America has been better, even better enough to be envied by the Chinese people.

Now, life in Europe and America is in dire straits again.

I can only say that I wish everyone a bright future.

The unemployment rate of Chinese youth aged 16 to 24 is 19.9%. How to interpret this data?

Quote:
When I came home in May, I saw the sister of a high school classmate working as a cashier in the supermarket. I said that you had just graduated from university. Why did you do this job?

She replied to me, look at the news, the youth unemployment rate is over 18.

At that time, she was putting a biscuit on the shelf. After placing it, she wrote the price list: 19.9 yuan.

I also joked that this business is really good. It looks like more than ten yuan to sell things for 20 yuan. As a result, the younger sister did not look back, saying that it had been put away for a long time. If it was not sold, it would soon expire. It was sold for more than 30 yuan, but now it is sold for 19.9 yuan.

When I left, I also bought a bag of biscuits. The overall feeling is that the biscuits are not delicious.

Unexpectedly, in August, I chatted with my friend today. He told me that the current employment environment is unimaginable. Someone who works as a cashier can be fired.

I was very curious. When I asked, it was the sister I met in May. I felt speechless.

After brushing the news for a while, I saw the figure of 19.9.

The most Anti-China country in the world

In recent years, many countries have been designated as "Anti-China countries" by Chinese netizens. In fact, there is another country in the world that is very anti Chinese, but it is rarely mentioned on the Chinese Internet.

In this country, Chinese have no way to use their own language freely. Even if they want to express some very common words, they have to use English, phononic transcription, abbreviations and homonyms.

In this country, the Chinese can not openly express their reasonable demands. In the event of major misfortunes, it is not only difficult to protect their own interests, but even become the target of surveillance. Whether they can protect themselves depends entirely on luck.

In this country, Chinese people may be suddenly expelled from their homes for various reasons and cannot complain.

In this country, Chinese are artificially divided into different levels in terms of identity. The level difference is reflected in education, health care, economy and other aspects. The bottom level is even more isolated than South Africa during apartheid.

In this country, the Chinese also have no privacy, and personal information is thoroughly infiltrated.

In short, it is difficult to find a country in the world that discriminates against and maltreats Chinese on such a large scale.
