The 4th Dimension in Faroese Politics
Traditionally, there are 3 dimensions in Faroese politics:
- left vs right
- moderate vs fundamentalist Christianity
- separatism vs unionism
With the forthcoming election in January 2004, the most important dimension is a forth one:
- honesty and transparency vs corruption and kleptocracy
That issue has broken up the separatist coalition.
That's OK with me; what good is a sovereign state, if it's ran by thieves?
(And what good is the present union with Denmark, if we are a lawless colony?)
