  • A new wave of liberal politicians is trying to change make a shift in the American Democratic Party. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the best known among this brand new movement but there are many more: they are all women, young and claim to follow the so-called democratic socialism. They want to end American capitalism and put a system similar to that of the Nordic countries.
    Countries like Sweden or Denmark are well known for having high taxes and a very big welfare state. But… can we really say they are socialist? What does Ocasio-Cortez really stand for? What is democratic socialism all about? In this video, we will answer to all of those questions.
