Something Rotten in Denmark

Denmark, supposedly, is the "happiest" country on the planet, something that likely makes a lot of sense to un-sagacious intellectual Francis Fukuyama. The guy responsible for that "end of history" flatulence (which was quickly shown to be a whopping load when, uninvited, history showed up on America's doorstep on 9/11) hails Denmark as the country that all should wish to emulate. As such, a Dane might be tempted to call it the Prophet Muhammad of nations, were it not for the unfortunate fact that such utterances could well land you in the dock for "hate speech."

To sum it up re Denmark: happy people; great cheese; alas, free speech as dead as everyone in that play "where a ghost and a prince meet, and everyone ends in mincemeat."
