How Swedes and Norwegians broke the power of their "1%."

Sweden and Norway are two of the richest and most democratic nations in the world today, and have
been so for many years. But they weren't always so. Norway didn't even become an independent
nation until 1905. Prior to that it was ruled either by Denmark or Sweden.

Both Sweden and Norway were living under the oppression of their own "1%," until they learned how
to throw off their yoke through non-violent means. It was a long and difficult struggle, but they
succeeded. Maybe we can learn from them.


Elizabeth Warren is not just an obviously bright person. There is something about her that

lets her honesty, integrity and caring about one's neighbor come shining through. This, I think,
is what makes her so appealing to so many people. I think she will win the MA election by a
huge margin.
