How about solutions? Serious problems are stalking behind every corner, but I haven't heard much about possible solutions and about how to effect. Any webites deticated for that?

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

There might be. but hey, I can't be the responsible for finding everything! Someone else find it!

however, I think that the fact that there are 10% more overweight than undernourished people in the world might hold the key to a solution. <-- ( socialist talk )

Socialist talk, oh my...Guess we will have to stone you to death...

Maybe if people were not too afraid of anything even resembling socialism and were to instead look at idea based on merit, real progress could be made.

Norway has many times been called "the last communist state" because we are so socialist.
However, the CIA ( ref, https://www.cia.gov/library/publications...os/no.html ), the biggest communist bashers in the world, has this to say about us:
The Norwegian economy is a prosperous bastion of welfare capitalism, featuring a combination of free market activity and government intervention.

So it can't be all bad. Tongue

What? But isn't socialism a system in which the goal is to get all business publicly owned (owned by the state)? Or yet another one mixes social services with socialism?

I think you need to rephrase that. I was going to respond, but then I realized that I wasn't completely sure what your question was.. Confused

RE: Worldometers
There are different flavors of socialism.
It has evolved from the early days.
Even those following Marx's ideology of stateism have disagreements.
Read up on it.

I remember a situation in the US , where young students were asked to read up on what socialism actually was as opposed to what was presented in the news.At the end more than 33% described themselves as socialists.
I wish I remember where I read the study.Undecided

RE: Worldometers
I remember watching the news not long after Obama was elected. Apparently Obama had been called a socialist so many times during his campaign that young Americans had gotten curious as to what socialism actually was. Like gaglamesh said, the result was that many more young Americans now view themselves as socialists.
