[T]he American and Canadian liberals and greens could already choose to live their own lives the exact same way as the denizens of their ideal countries, e.g. Sweden, Cuba, or Venezuela. For example, if they believe that big houses with one bathroom for each family member are bad, nothing stops them from moving their families into a small one-bedroom apartment.
