Last week’s terror attacks in Norway shattered the heart of a peace-loving society, which up until this point, was considered a model for other societies to follow. Despite their socialist form of government, Norwegians cherish their sovereignty and independence. Some say their standard of living is one of the best in the world. Perhaps is due to the fact that their government still represents their interests. They chose not to be part of the European Union in two different referendums some time ago because they know their history; they have been dominated by foreign governments in the past and they don’t want their old problems to return.
