Time For Clearance

I was in Norway once, the paradise of social democracy,
I saw many beggars, mostly Roma people who
the inhabitants wanted to get rid of or send them out of
town in the woods where they were not seen. If you are
a beggar you got to beg where the people are, foxes and
sheep and have nothing to give. There is a strong sense
of nationalism in Norway. The police did not hesitate to
round up Jews and send them to concentration, and when
the war was over, most of the police officers continued in
their work upholding the law. Norway as a nation has never
looked at itself and taking tally of the nation´s behavior
during war years, instead it is lauding the few who resisted
the Nazi occupation and made them into icons. They shot
Quisling but it didn´t stop what made a quisling possible.
Still has not done so...Oil made Norway rich, yet there
is poverty amongst the low paid and incomers for whom
there is little charity. The dark side of Scandinavia violence,
hate against people who are different from them… those
who do not fit into the nice, but untrue picture, the country
has of herself.
