Norway’s Premier Vows to Keep an Open Society

Postby ilikebeans » Thu Jul 28, 2011 11:58 pm

“It’s absolutely possible to have an open, democratic, inclusive society, and at the same time have security measures and not be naive,” Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg told reporters in Oslo. “I think what we have seen is that there is going to be one Norway before and one Norway after July 22,” he said. “But I hope and also believe that the Norway we will see after will be more open, a more tolerant society than what we had before.”

Ironically, Dick Cheney can be seen sitting on his hands in the upper left quadrant of that image.

Sounds a little late for the "not be naive" bit.

I agree... too late. They should arrest and imprison intolerant people who spread their prejudices on internet messageboards and elsewhere. It's called "hate speech" and nothing good can come of it.

Still a little butthurt that the attacker wasn't a radical Muslim, but instead someone from your camp?
