I read this today,on the Nobel Peace Prize website after it was read at the ceremony today by Liv Ulman. Iit’s brilliant, and this paticular part made me think of my home country and the politics of fear that Dubya used so successfully and people like Sarah Palin are taking advantage of now, this is a part of his speech:

Here is a link to his full speech
