In Europe, maybe. But I doubt theres as much of a consensus outside of some EU states. Also, It's no coincidence that Democratic socialism works especially well in countries with small populations. I dont see it as practical in a lot of countries.

Outside of some conservatives in the USA I would have to disagree. It's the evolution of a post industrial society, as people become more educated and more aware, they see the importance in addressing things such as income inequality. Why would a larger population change the principles of a welfare state? The system itself in Europe is "breaking" down due to demographic issues, not enough young people to support the old and a huge influx of individuals not paying into the actual system itself.

England are adopting austerity measures to curb spending, Australia just did last year (even though our Economy weathered the GFC relatively well), and given Trumps popularity the US is on the verge. Again, outside of the EU, I don't see how it's the 'go to' best form of governence.

 

If a system is fundamentally reliant on a demographic to buy in order to remain at all feasible, would that not show its fundamentally flawed?

 

I'm not saying I disagree with public welfare programs at all, or some democratic socialist principles; but the idea that the political ideologies of a handful of small European countries somehow scale and work outside Europe isn't feasible.

I belive its also attributed alot to the mentality of the people, if they are united behind the state and trust them to destribute the wealth in a fair and respective manner

Of course, it has to mold to whatever the culture envisions, that doesn't mean the principles of the system isn't applicable to the vast majority of democratic nations. It is the "go to" if you want a nation not to fall apart, every single western democracy has bits of democratic socialism, the difference is some nations provide more investment into the system and idea than others.

 

Austerity measures? Like what? So far all I've seen is a giant political meltdown and people not wanting to pick it up. Those small European countries are a very large part of the western world...just kinda the birthplace of the strongest nation in the world (At the moment) and you lovely island dwellers =P. I have two words for the Trump...idiocy...Dual Citizenship haha
