Former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt wrote a tweet Monday ripping Sen. Bernard Sanders for a resurfaced video of the democratic socialist praising the Soviet Union in 1988.
Mr. Bildt’s tweet included the video of Mr. Sanders, then-mayor of Burlington, Vermont, giving a speech following a recent trip to the Soviet Union, where he said he was “extremely impressed” by the public transportation system.

“The stations themselves were absolutely beautiful, including many works of art, chandeliers that were beautiful. It was a very, very effective system,” Mr. Sanders said in the video. “Also, I was impressed by the youth programs that they have. There are palaces of culture for the young people — a whole variety of programs for young people and cultural programs which go far beyond what we do in this country.”

Mr. Bildt, who served as Sweden’s prime minister from 1991 to 1994, tweeted in response: “Bernie Sanders was lucky to be able to get to the Soviet Union in 1988 and praise all its stunning socialist achievements before the entire system and empire collapsed under the weight of its own spectacular failures.”

The Swedes do not have a socialist economy and will let you know.   Cool



The policy or practice on the part of people in positions of authority of restricting the freedom and responsibilities of those subordinate to them in the subordinates' supposed best interest.
