Thank you Laura. I had not made that connection the most fey lands are leading the way (Iceland, Ireland, India, Hungary). Artemis Fowl would not be surprised:-)
More sane moves in a land where most people believe in elves. I keep telling people: believing in funny money ponzi schemes and the monopoly money institutions (whose leaders should rightly be jailed or at least straight-jacketed), while not believing in faeries, elves or Nature Spirits seems increasingly bizarre to me. Iceland continues to kick bankster butt, and the nation also honors privacy and land use far better than the “rational” cultures do. Perhaps they’ve learned to appreciate “Respect, Not Control.” In respecting Nature and the Unseens, perhaps Icelanders have also learned to respect themselves.
(Thanks for the link, G!)
