Response to Diclotican (Reply #2)

3. Diclotican:

Just stumbled upon this quote by Søren Kierkegaard, posted by Skidmore:

"I want people to sit up and take notice, to prevent them from idling away and wasting their lives. Aristocrats take it for granted that a lot of people will always go to waste. But they keep silent about it; they live sheltered lives pretending that all these many, many people simply do not exist. That is what is ungodly about the superior status of the aristocrats; in order to be comfortable themselves they do not even call attention to anything."

Norway is doing the right thing there. I've found comments directed toward indigenous peoples recently to be in the catergory of those 'pretending that all these many, many people simply do not exist.' They do exist, their rights should be respected and their voices are needed to move to peace in the world. It will be strange and unknown, but this must happen. Good example set there by Norway.
