An example for the US
Continuing from the last post, look at this chart from Maalouf's IW article. Note how Germany and northern Europe are entering functional democracy from social democracy. And how the US is just entering social democracy, with a big setback of course by Wall Street oligarchy. Hence Sanders agenda is on the cusp of healthy social democracy leading to functional democracy. Note his use of FDR as an example of the former and Scandinavia as an example of the latter for where the US could be.
