To be fair, their model was working just fine with the society they had. Because their population was almost entirely highly educated fully western cultured locals their strong social net was a safety net more than a crutch.

I would say it's a clear example that the composition of your society plays as much a role in what model will be successful as the merits of the model itself.

They had minimal immigrants and those that did immigrate had to speak the language and have education. Or they would have PhDs and knew some of the language. As well, couples were having 1 or 2 children. Not 10 or 11. It was nearly impossible for their societies to fail unless a major event. Then the rapefugees came.

Taking in millions of Muslims has little to do with socialism

The combination of open borders and a welfare state, the lefty utopia, is exactly what caused the immigration crisis.

So basically the problem was how awesome they were? People wanted to go there because the place was the best? The problem was that they let them in, not that they had a lot for themselves.

Good luck trying to bring logic to the table. You'll get downvoated here for defending Bern. Doesn't matter the context.

Bernie wants to 'build bridges' not 'build walls.' He will be more than happy to let in everyone and anyone in his socialist utopia.

Eh... Socialism isn't the reason they're collapsing. They rejected globalism, so globalists are trying to tear Europe apart to rebuild it anew. Quite sad, really.

If only it was the 1960s Soviet Empire.
