[Excerpt from a POF session on June 17, 2020]
Ingun: Hello Michael. What communal truths do we Norwegians have that are distinct from other countries/cultures?
We could suggest these communal truths as a start:
- That the Moving Center is your friend. It is a generally shared truth that activity and movement are vital parts of life, particularly in terms of the outdoors.
- That Responsibility is not a burden. It is a generally shared truth that when everyone is sharing responsibilities, then no one is burdened by responsibilities.
- That the past is worth respecting, but also worth rising above. Although change is not particularly embraced on a wide scale, there is a shared truth that evolution is valuable (and a responsibility) and that the past is to be built upon, not protected or sanctified.
