mocktwinkie saidWhat do you mean by "inclusive"? Wasn't Denmark the first country in the world to recognize same-sex unions?
Their right-wing party seems virtually identical to the left on most economic matters, the only difference is that the former isn't interested in letting in significant amounts of third world immigrants which would likely just make Denmark closer to Sweden and other countries now experiencing a severe backlash from it.
I'm not just speaking from a "gay" perspective. for the last 10 years, our immigration policies have been so tough and exclusive that it was an embarrassment. Danish people who marry a foreigner can't even be sure that their spouse is allowed to live here.
Also, those who had plenty got more, and those who had less got poor. A minister in the government even said that inequality was a good thing, as it created a dynamic society.
Virtually no European country has "tough" and "exclusive" immigration policies comparative to many other non-western countries like Japan for instance. I've actually watched all sorts of Danish political debates and I see different ethnicities and Muslims participating -- so hardly an "exclusive" society that you are describing. I'm obviously not suggesting that Denmark shouldn't
have an interest in other cultures and foods and people in an accepting way like many other countries do, but at the end of the day there is nothing "wrong" with Danish people believing that Denmark is for Danish, just like Japanese people feel that Japan is for Japanese. What exactly makes you think that Denmark, like any other European country, is supposed
to be a country of immigration or a country of multiple different groups? Where did this idea enter into the minds of people? Is it something that was taught in school? The idea of progressively bringing in waves of third world immigrants will only tend to create anarchy and civil war in the long-run over national identity issues because of the long histories of nations like Denmark. It's an inevitability. Denmark is not the USA which was built on massive amounts of immigration and people all looking to form a history together from different backgrounds.
The rest of Europe is about to enter into total chaotic upheaval over this issue and you want Denmark to follow suit? It's not quite making sense to me.
Always ask yourself, would the vikings approve? lol jt.
