Sweden Muliboy, I am in the US Muliboy, and I would tend to agree with the apparant expansionist "produce, consume" Holy economy of America. I am tired of it. I don't feel the people have a real involvement in the political and economic decisions and activities, and I think it will get increasingly harder to be a disenter in the 'Empire' especially with this WAR battlecry. I have thought of moving to Norway or Sweden. Are things better in those areas, as far as politically and economically? Especially for an intellectual (scientist/philosopher/artist) - a lover of knowlege and wisdom. I am tired of using my abilities to serve the all-powerful profit motive. I would like to continue my education ( I have a BS in engineering currently, but would like to pursue philosophy or humanities in greater depth.) Can I take classes in English, or are they only in the native languages (I would expect they are in the native languages, but I can hope Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! )? Also, I have wondered what it would take to actually find a job there and move. I would be willing to contribute my mechanical engineering skills to the society, while I pursue my academic interest. Should I contact the Swedish/Norwegian embassy? How tough do you think it would be for me to find work their? (This goes for any Swede or Norwegian). It looks like people have to be citizens and members of a European Union and many other things. I know I have asked a lot of questions, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
