14. Yeah. That part was a little too "gracious" for me as well.
I used to live in Germany. Norway is known throughout Europe as being an amazing place to live. For exactly the reasons brought up in this clip.

5. Maybe there is hope for us.
If the people who once were rampaging Vikings can become so civilized, perhaps we can too in the future.

11. Wow, Common Sense.
Here we think we need to kill the killers, unless of course they work for Blackwater or bu$h I or II.

13. Wow. Convicted criminals in Norway have it better than...
... most nine-to-fiver every day working stiffs in the U.S.

Go to Norway, hold up a liquor store, turn yourself in, and lead the good life.

15. No punishment, even for murder.
That is crazy. I imagine you can do whatever the hell you want over there and not have to worry about repercussions.

22. YouTube has removed the video. (Probably due to copyright infringement.)

20. YouTube
suspends or bans videos/users a little too easily at times if the right people complain. This may not be the case here so I'm speaking generally.

19. Wow.
I can't believe there is such a place on this planet, and that 1/4 of my ancestry is from there.

21. In America...
people mostly have a moral assumption that revenge is the sole purpose of punishment. Consequently most people don't look beyond that in considering what the actual effects of a correction system on the community are.

I wouldn't normally expect that a system as radically lenient as this would be so successful. But if what Michael Moore says in the video is true (big if) then it bears looking into.

Ironically, that "they don't have the blacks there" may not be entirely beside the point. Because in other words, they do not have the legacy of SLAVERY. And people wonder why this country has an endless cycle of violent crime?
