Denmark is a lovely country. And though it's incredibly expensive to visit, those who live there never seem to complain, because the Social Democrats (aka Socialists) implemented certain social policies in the 90s (when they were the majority party) that included redistribution of wealth, subsidized health care, education and other social services.
Great in theory, but the problem with subsidized 'anything', is that it creates a sense of entitlement, which can then trigger what is happening in Denmark today. Violence erupted in Copenhagen (with at least 4 cars set on fire), when squatters were evicted from a downtown building that was considered free public housing and served as a cultural center for leftists, punks and anarchists. The squatters continued living in the building, which had been sold 6 years ago to a church, in spite of a court ordered eviction a year ago. They are demanding a replacement, for free, of course.
This is what happens when people think that they are owed something, because a government so liberally distributes free hand-outs. There is no incentive to work, to make something of oneself. I also find it interesting to note that the perpetrators of the violence were young, leftists and anarchists.
Apparently there were protests of solidarity, in all the other Scandinavian countries and Germany.
I think some people need to get a job! Because they obviously don't have anything better to do.
