Norway Prime Minister: “The Answer to Violence is even More Democracy”


Now that is leadership. Unlike the US where so-called leaders continue to believe that it’s possible to bomb and jail the the bad guys into submission, this is a refreshing change. Sure, the US and Norway have different positions in the world but if the US wants to tell everyone about how great it’s democracy is, maybe it would be possible to actually deliver rather than shut it down. Bush may have led the charge into ignorance but there weren’t many who objected. Even now, how many really are demanding that we stop bombing the world? As a country, we could certainly learn a few lessons watching Norway’s reaction to this awful act of terrorism.
