I have been very interested in Iceland and how it will navigate its future partly as I had a waking vision of ice covering Europe and then a few weeks later the volcanic ash covered Europe from Iceland.
I saw Europe – stretching into Russia, covering also the southern states down to the Black Sea, and from the north to the south – under a blanket of ice. To state the obvious, frozen in time, little movement. However this was beginning to melt. I am full of hope for these lands. (I think anyone called to live somewhere must have hope.) April 10, 2011
Mr Haarde, the ex-PM of Iceland is thought to be the first world leader to face criminal charges over the financial crisis. He has been found guilty on one charge and acquitted on the others, but will not be punished. I personally think this is awesome. I have been wanting some public accountability in these situations where those with authority have so mismanaged finances (and of course I cannot say if this is true in this situation or not)… then my hope has been that there would be an acquittal on the basis that ‘we too have sinned…’ Decisions have been made but we have all participated in the greed.
Anyway of interest as I hope / think Iceland could become a sign for some new economic shapes. Just a thought and a hope.
