Next to nothing has been 'invented' nor developed or implemented in nearly all of that wonderful list of 'socialized countries'.

computers? Ha....the first 'portable' ,the Kaypro came out of Europe, but they were literally left in the dust with the PC revolution. They tried to manufacture, but that was a gigantic disaster.

They had a big telecom industry...it is quickly dying as the Chinese beat them on innovation, technology, new plants to make it, a more educated workforce, and capitalism. Ericsson, NOkia....all going down the tubes.....

New cures for things? Sweden? Ha...Norway?? finland? denmark? GImme a break.....

If it weren't for things invented in the US....they'd be back in the stone ages......

Socialism doesn't advance society, unless you are talking about the Soviet machine that built enough chemical warfare - antrax - plants to kill everyone on the planet 10 times over....build enough nukes to do the same.....killed at least 10 people trying to put a man in orbit and get him back....but heck...the people were starving...but the money went where the 'elites' decided to put it. Everyone else was 'equal' but in horrendous poverty....

Same for Cuba...don't get sick and need to go to the hospital. you'll need to bring your own bandages and needles and maybe even medicines...since the hospital folks don't have enough..and your relatives better bring food.....to feed you....
