Bernie Sanders and millions more misunderstand what socialism and social democracy are, and what economic-social system Scandinavia has been built on for the past decades. This is not a matter of concern only for the last election campaign in the United States of America (USamerica) but is important for everyone to know what these terms actually signify. That is my first objective.My second objective is to explain that social democracy is failing in the countries that had adopted this form of capitalism, namely because the capitalist system, currently going under the name of free market globalization, no longer judges it is be necessary for their profits and world domination.My final objective is to point us in a direction that could be of benefit to the whole world, and that requires an end of capitalism.My work here is not primarily theoretical but mainly based on personal experiences from living three decades in Scandinavia (Denmark mainly), eight years in Cuba and seven more in other Latin American countries, 40 years USamerica, and traveling extensively in many other lands.My writing in six of these seven chapters includes information from interviews and encounters I have had with leading politicians in Scandinavia, including former prime ministers of Denmark and Sweden a former president of Iceland.My writing style often contains “the salty bite of authenticity in a Damon Runyan sort of way.” So wrote Theodore MacDonald, a former professor, author, musician and doctor, about my book, “Cuba Beyond the Crossroads.”I have had nine books published in USamerica, England, Germany, and India. Six books deal with Cuba—the best know is “Backfire: The CIA’s Biggest Burn.” Others are: “Yankee Sandinistas”, “Sounds of Venezuela”, and “Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka”. I am the co-author of three other books, two in Danish.This is my first attempt at self-publishing an ebook.
