The Ideal Society -- Controlled By Women

Ever been to Norway?

It's not quite a utopia, but it's about as close as you can get to one in this world, for both men and women. Its government is more than half female, and Viking culture was one of the first to widely support women's rights, including their right to own property and run businesses, 1200 years ago. Rape and other violent crimes are almost non-existant, although petty crimes have seen a bit of a rise lately.

If you haven't spent any time in Norway (no, one day there in a tourbus doesn't count) and you're a Republican, then just shut up right now because we don't need your uninformed and idiotic blather about what you incorrectly refer to as "socialism". You've never lived there, and your "information" is nothing more than some blatent, politically-motivated lies from Fox News or Clearchannel Broadcasting. You don't know what you're talking about, so don't talk.

BTW, you can also spare me the "so just move, then" comment. No, it's not original, nor is it even the least bit clever. I'm an American citizen of Norwegian descent who would rather live in Norway than continue to watch this sinking ship led by total morons going down with my kids on it. But it's getting difficult to get your foot in the door in Norway, even with inside connections and language fluency. The problem is that everyone else is getting the exact same idea. I'm like a Mexican trying to get to California.

Viking Culture also supported beheading your victim, skewering it on a steak, lighting it on fire, and parading through town with it. Very civilized!

Also, you mentioned "But it's getting difficult to get your foot in the door in Norway, even with inside connections and language fluency. The problem is that everyone else is getting the exact same idea." I personally have never heard of anyone other then you wanting to move to Norway, but by all means please keep trying. People are SO much more enlightened in Europe, aren't they? I have no problems with Europeans, really I don't. I think the U.S. needs stronger ties with Europe. However, I do have problems with people like you. Please, get off our "sinking ship". With fewer ignorant half-wits such as yourself and the person who created this poll, maybe we could get things back to the way they were.

Just so we're clear, I think equality between men and women is necessary and will make the world a better place. However, equality does not mean disenfranchising men, or keeping men from holding office - get real

The sinking ship that has more money than any other? The sinking ship which the world economy is based off of? The sinking ship with the most powerful military in the world? And by the way, Norway is actually a free market system with a small deal of Government intervention run off of a constitutional monarchy. However, this still technically makes it a partial form of socialism. And the majority of the government is not made up of women, as their king, heir apparent and prime minister are all male, along with much of the make up of the legislative and judicial branches. So don't talk.
