I moved to Iceland in 2018. While in some ways, they are a socialist nation with high taxes, government healthcare/education, frequent bailouts.....there is also a surprising side to their government. The people are VERY FREE. You can drink in street, most fireworks are legal, very few police, the government is not listening to you, etc. In fact, many Nordic socialist societies (especially Amsterdam) are incredibly FREE.

Here's my 2018 lesson: Capitalism is economic freedom...but maybe the world has become SO good at MAKING STUFF that I would rather give up some economic freedom & efficiency for free college , health care, and the benefits of slower growth. Additionally, economic freedom is NOT THE SAME AS PERSONAL FREEDOM .

Eu tive alguns problemas em 2018, como saúde, família, início de depressão foi um ano muito difícil, mas depois de um tempo passado, tudo o que aprendi a valorizar a vida, a família trablhos e os amigos ao meu lado, essas coisas anos foram onde minha idéia foi e mandaram ver coisas realmente como elas são.
