De-Kochification: The Kochs Are Creating a Generation of 'Socialists' - Huffington Post

De-Kochification: The Kochs Are Creating a Generation of 'Socialists' - Huffington Post | real utopias | Scoop.it

Denmark's democratic socialism does not seem all that bad to millennials. The Danes are often at the top of the world's happiest people.
