    Neither does PeteEU but it hasn't prevented either of you from commenting. Why?

    I haven't seen you demonstrate much knowledge of the area, and that hasn't stopped you from posting here

    And I posted to point out a gross misinterpretation of what PeteEU said. So far, you've contribute nothing but personal aspersions and quips.

    You know that porn used to be illegal in America and abortion was a crime. Now we have both.

    This book gives an interestrting look into the era of porn legalization. I read it long ago and was impressed. Thy Neighbor's Wife: Gay Talese: 9780061665431: Amazon.com: Books

    As mentioned earlier my family is from there and I've lived and worked there. I know the country and people well.

    And as I mentioned earlier, you haven't demonstrated much knowledge of the area. All you've done is claim to possess it, while misinterpreting PE's post

    Yeah, um... good luck with that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I have to admit, I don't know much about the area, but it is possible that they are quite progressive while being less progressive in relation to their neighbors
    Actully petereu is right although its a litter weirder then that here in Iceland (im a icelander and live in Iceland)
    Is celand progeerive? Depends, but hardly though, on some issues like the gay issue yes but up until the 80´s anybody who was open homosexual was targeted and there were attempted murders back then.
    On divorce Iceland is far more consertive then usa, in Iceland a person whos diveroced is viewed as a freak or misfit and a person who is two times diveroced would keep it a secret like being a pedophile because its so fronwed upon. Nobody would want to assccoite with that person.

    This also has to do with xenophobia, Icelanders have an obession about keeping Iceland pure and are scared of "foreign filth" destroing icelandic culture etc.

    Ögmundur although in a leftwing party(only econmoaly but socialy consertive) is a noturous xenophobe due to his attidues against gypsies,aslyum seekers and his anti semitic views(ive spoken to him and when i mentoied usa he talked about how jews control usa and own the media there and that america is a jew puppet,he accuess israel of engaing in genocide against palenstine pubilicy many times and many of his party members have even called israel baby killers and engaged in blood libel accustions)
    His party is whithout a doubt the biggest supporter of all of war on drugs and harsh punishemnt for people caught with drugs,
    They even opposed legalizing color tv´s back in the day,
    Beer was banned until 1989 and they oppsed making it legal(on the grounds that it would corrupt the mind of the youths)
    Racial attacks including attempted murders of non white immigrants happend on a monthly bases in 2008 without police caring.
    Icealnders are extremly nationlistic and want to create a image that Iceland is a shinign beacon in the world and we use often hypoerbolic statements about how great and progersive Iceland is.

    Good idea. Same with extreme graphic or realistic violence.
