Over the past several years I’ve chatted online with several residents of social democratic countries, all of whom were quite happy with their governments and none complained about paying high taxes. The editorial cartoon of Feb. 23, from the San Diego Tribune (Steve Breen) is outrageous in implying that those citizens are “burned with debt.” Those citizens are angered by slurs on their social democracies that we count as allies: Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Talk about being burned by debt, look at where we are, thanks to wars.
