Today is Syttende Mai, Norwegian Constitution Day. It is a day of celebration because constitutional independence of Norway from Denmark in 1814 and Sweden in 1905 occurred without any loss of life. Therefore, children march in the streets during this national day of celebration.

Would this ability to peacefully separate from political domination be feasible everywhere in the world.

Here is a link to a web site in Stavanger Norway that gives more information about the holiday. My grandparents came from Stavanger, Risor, and places near Oslo Norway.
