Norway’s State Philosopher

Norway’s State Philosopher March 20, 2011

Below is some of Michael Moore’s documentary footage which he cut from Sicko. He explores Norway’s exceedingly high standard of living and the values which produce it.   Along the way he talks to Hynrik Syse, the philosopher who the government hired to manage the nation’s oil profits so that they would be used in the wisest way.

The whole video is fascinating but if you only have time for the portion on Syse, it is 2:40-4:11. If you want to see the most humane and genuinely reform minded prison ideal ever, watch everything after that.
