Norwegian hospitals are free though. I was just surprised the first time I learned Norwegians pay at all to visit the doctor because I assumed we had the same system.

Alternative Ambassadors

Alternative Ambassadors

Pro tip for America: if you want a bit of political sway or just want to strengthen relations to Denmark, send your “alternative” ambassadors. For some reason Denmark is extremely receptive to that and always get overly excited.

Not so surprising surprise

It almost feels like a right of passage for Americans to make this joke when they visit Europe.

Masquerade

Masquerade

After my last comic so many Americans were like “The Scandinavian countries are so smart and we can’t even get Americans to wear masks” but the Scandinavian countries haven’t even suggested that people wear masks. All they’ve done is tell people to wear masks abroad because they otherwise risk getting a fine in countries where masks are mandatory.

YOU get some dignity and YOU get some dignity

YOU get some dignity and YOU get some dignity

Finland explained himself in the comic, but in 2010 Denmark started giving heroine to drug addicts for free and it was such a huge success that it has continued until today. Because of this Norway has started experimenting with it too.

It’s a lot cheaper for society because the addicts commit less crime, they don’t have to spend money on drugs so instead they spend it on things that are more healthy for them so they don’t end up on the hospital as often, they have to take the drugs in special clinics so there’s no chance of them taking an overdose or using dirty needles and spreading diseases among each other, there’s always staff ready to help them if they want to get off the drugs, and it’s a lot more effective way to help more people because addicts come into contact with professionals who want to help them before they even think about getting help themselves.

Nobody wants to be homeless or an addict. Though they often end up getting involved in criminality because of their situation, the act of being homeless or an addict is not a crime in itself and the people deserve help like anyone else.
