The real difference between how people living in the country are effected by free market capitalism vs "eu style socialism" is from things like do you get free healthcare, for example dental care that costs like 10-100€ max or is free if you dont have have enough incomes(or can go to private sector if you prefer and want to pay more extra) and do you pay bit more taxes if you make enough money to live comfortably anyways vs do you need to pay for some insurance money so that if you need to have dental care, you dont have to pay thousands or possibly tens of thousands on hospital bills. Or if the university costs more than the school books(if you werent fast enough to get them from university library) vs having to pay shit loads of money to be able to go to a proper university.
When it comes to usa, i think its good that they have some stuff like scholarships and other "eu style socialist" stuff, but too many people who cant see that really we are just all people here and we should try to make this place for all of us, or as many as possible at least, but instead not enough money for funding even proper roads to some places is not being collected from those who already have enough to even build their own roads if they just wanted it.. And then other places where cash flows its like a paradise. But then if you look at the people living in that paradise, many are not even happier with their lives than some regular guy in Denmark. And that regular guy who makes a proper living, doesent have to worry about too much study loans, doesent have to worry about if they need to go to hospital other than can doctors that he trusts save him. This person is the average in denmark, is it the average person in many countries ran by free market capitalism or is free market capitalism a requirement for an average person to have better means to a better life?
