As a socialist I can’t accept that being connected to labour movement is a requisite to be a social-democrat or socialist (this only revels a Marxist-centrism that I reject).   I’m meaning “liberal” in the realm of taught, i.e., John Rawls is an American and a liberal (social-democrat) per excellence. Even your fellow countryman Gøsta Esping Andersen agrees with this, so maybe your condition of Swedish is beyond the point Dave Z.   Sincerely yours,A.

In Scandinavia, social-democracy has not yet been disconnected from the labour movement. It has socialist roots. //Dave Z
