Sweden: costly but correct

Dear Editor:Alas, the last time that I heard the figure is that the Swedish national debt is 25 times that of the USA per capita. The “good society” is an expensive concept, but that doesn’t mean that it is incorrect.Our own national debt is primarily the result of patronage of the military industrial transnational corporate oligarchy. One system helps people and maintains the ecosystem; the USA Inc. system helps the corporate ledger and does little for the environment. Sven Erik Alstrom Aspen and Lawrence, Kan.
