Well, it depend of which hospital he will be serving his time in. And I doubt that he will be in a facility, where you can get easily out.. The most known mental hospital where they have a few of the worst in the Oslo area, are Dikemark, who have a long tradition in keeping the mad from the rest. And the department he would be kept in, is really secure, no one have yet to be able to run from the facility.. It was one, a decade ago who tried to leave, and he was apprehended after 15-20 min.. By more police than we might have seen in one ara before 22 of July last year.. A person like Breivik would be hold in a tight spot all the time, and never be allowed alone - even for a short while.. They have good experience with this type of persons at this Department (avdeling 8 p Dikemark Psychiatric sykehus) and the area where the insane can get out, is absolutely "airtight", and they are kept under surveillance all the time...

We don't have the same political GOP style of parties in Norway, even our conservatives is rather middle of the road compared to the extreme right in the US. And the extreme right, is so marginalized by the rest, that I doubt they will ever rise their head for as long as we live - we would hope. I really doubt that we will ever have the same style of extreme right-wing - or left wing parties who speak to the masses in Norway. In the political senses Norway is still a pretty solid "social-democratic" community, with an attitude for socialism.. Even before world war two, and the occupation of Norway in 1940 by german forces, never managed to get the masses interesting on fiddling with the extreme right..

And I doubt, that we will have some of the same laws that your patriot act in Norway anytime soon. If we have to have this type of laws we have them already and it goes all the way to the start of the cold war, and even they have been amended as time goes by. In the mid 1990s, when it was discovered that the Secret Police had been spying on the left wing of the political spectrum in Norway since the end world war one, it more or less ended with the capitation of most of Politiets Overvkningstjeneste, and it was reorganized to accept the new reality of the post cold war reality... And most of the "good old" habits ended after been scrutinized to death (we have a habit on doing that in Norway) And Politiets Overvkningstjeneste even changed name to PST Politiets Sikkerhetstjeneste. And are just an Shadow of their former glory..

But, you never know, that is true.. But for the most part, the extreme right is castrated to a point that just a marginal minority will ever vote for them.. And our conservatives, is rather middle of the road.. Even FRP our progress party, who by most standards is rather far right are for the most part rather to the left, compared to many of its "sister parties" in Europe and in the rest of the world. And I doubt,that Norway will get a Hitler in the foreseeable future either.
