More democracy, more openness

Jens Stoltenberg, prime minister of Norway, responds to the attacks in Oslo and Utoya:

Our answer is more democracy, more openness to show that we will not be stopped by this kind of violence. At the same time we shouldn’t be naive, we should understand that violence can attack our society – we’ve seen that today.

What a stark contrast to what George W. Bush said right after the attacks in New York City.

The United States could learn a thing or two from Norway.
