A quick “Feel The News” thought for this week

From Reuters: Special Report: Life after Breivik

Norway’s response to last summer’s Labour Party youth camp attacks says a lot about the country. One study found Norwegians trust each other more, not less. The attacks have certainly fired up existing activists such as Vegard Groeslie Wennesland, whose friend Haavard Vederhus, the head of the Labour Party Youth League’s Oslo branch, was shot dead on Utoeya, and was replaced by Wennesland.  He says:

“This guy wanted to kill me because I believe in democracy, openness, tolerance and dialogue. Well, f-ck it. If that is what he wanted to kill me for, I am going to carry on fighting for it.”
