Socialist Republic Of Greenland

Post by RedBrasil on Wed Mar 13, 2013 9:43 pm

More than 80 % of the population voted in left-wing parties last election, they have a far-left party with 6%, a democratic socialist party with 34% and a social-democrat with 42%, this is not even close to a revolutionary situation, but who knows?

Long Live the future socialist republic of Greenland!

In my opinion every fucking danish leftist should move to Greenland now!

While it's admirable that such a significant segment of the Greenlandic population has embraced progressive politics, I advise against thinking Greenland is in any way a "Socialist Republic." Its modest economy remains entirely capitalist, and it's unlikely a country as dependent on foreign trade could transition to socialism without a revolution first occurring in Western Europe.

Absolutely. I welcome this development and hope more comes of it in the years ahead.

Good to hear. I've wanted to visit there for quite some time. Seems off the beaten path. Wish them the best.
