I always hear about how liberal or socialist Europe is when it’s actually the opposite. That may have been true in the past but is no longer the case. Europe has been rolling back their socialist programs, deregulating their economies, and cutting taxes.
I went through the map of European countries, looked their prime ministers / parliaments up on Wikipedia, and colored them in with blue if they have conservative right wing governments and red if they have liberal left wing governments. Purple is for mixed coalition governments.
As you can see, Europe is by and large conservative, free market, and right wing dealing with unwinding the remnants of post war socialism.
