Our thoughts are with you, Norway.
PS. Perhaps if nothing else, this will serve as (yet another) warning about the dangers of extremism — no matter whose — and the importance of democracy, and letting people have their say and input into the political process by peaceful means.
As the Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg remarked: We meet terror and violence with more democracy and will continue to fight against intolerance.
And I might just add bravo to Joe Hockey, who recently when faced with this question from an anti-Carbon tax protestor: What is the Coalition going to do to try to stop the people of Australia taking up arms against this government?, replied: I’d say to you we should never do that.
You want to change things? Then lobby, write, protest, picket, expose, petition, rally, publicise, make your voice heard.
Violence? No. Never acceptable in a free democracy.
