Norway Ranked Best Nation to Steal a Car

(Ranking providing by filtersweep blog). A little over a year ago, our neighbor's home was broken into. Along with personal belongings, their car keys and later their car was stolen. Like all stupid criminals, they were caught. But here is the kicker: in Norway, apparently, it takes too many resources to prosecute a car thief. No charges are being filed due to "lack of evidence." The police caught the criminals with the car-- what more evidence do they need? A year ago I joked that they would probably receive some windfall for being down and out, drug addicted criminals. Well, this is it. My politics in the US tend to run left of center--- but in Norway, where everything is so liberal, I probably come off like a living version of Charlton Heston. I seriously don't get it.

I think you can trace it back to the Enlightenment. They think mankind is essentially good and perfectable -- all it takes is the right socially-engineered system. I don't think they're into the whole "original sin" concept or even seeing mankind as a dualistic mish-mash of good and evil. In fact, I'd question whether or not they even believe "evil" exists.
