There is no such thing as 'demosocialist'. The EU nations (barring obviously the Eastern and central European ones for obvious socialist reasons) are not socialist nor were they during the cold war, there is the right to property in those nations, the Scandinavian countries often used as the poster child for the welfare state were in NATO not the Warsaw pact, they were and are capitalist mixed economies, they are not socialist they are Social Democracies.Again you're missing the point, by declaring that "Left" means "Soviet"! Many say the Truman Doctrine is what destroyed the USSR, and Truman was a liberal Democrat.
The left, which right now in the USA means progressive democrats, are indeed smarter and more correct than the right, which are ultra-conservative corporate-sycophant Republicans who obviously, if you're paying attention, care nothing for democracy, the people, justice, etc.
And the countries who "survived" the Cold War, let's just speak of the EU nations... they're all demosocialist today! Obviously today's Europeans are smarter than today's Yanks, I'd say.
