Rural districts can’t be cities – and never will be

FUN FACT: Recent Norwegian discourse reveals a widespread misconception that even the remotest village deserves every single advantage found, not only in cities, but in the capital itself, while the capital, on the other hand, is worthy of total annihilation.

I’m looking forward to that. Knock yourselves out.

This is, by the way, where I live:

How wrong they all are is fairly self-evident, so shan’t try to elaborate, except to ask what they think the point in having a capital may possibly be.

Also (for Norwegian readers):

Norway busy dismantling its capital

FUN FACT: Despite the fact that no more than approximately 3.3 percent of the greater Oslo population — approx 50,000 out of approx 1,500,000 inhabitants — are employed in governmental agencies (you would expect a lot more from a capital, no?), Norwegian politicians keep moving same agencies to other parts of the country.

This blogger, for one, wouldn’t be surprised if we’re left with no capital at all.
