8. I've said the shooting were just tip of iceberg,
it's been easy for countries like Norway to portray themselves enlightened, progressive places; when for most of their history they've had a very culturally monolithic population. But now that there now increasing diversity racsim is starting rear it's ugly head. I predict in the coming years you'll see in countries like Norway who have never had deal with real diversity an erison in support for their social safety nets. Do think they'll go all US style and have almost nothing? No, but I predict there will be weaking now that is an 'other' that will be peceived as getting benefits meant for 'real Norwegians'.
