The Dutch Way


Thanks to Adam Curry, I've found an English-language version of Pim Fortuyn's platform in the upcoming Dutch elections (no, my Dutch isn't good enough to read it all in my mother's language). The platform seems eminently reasonable to me, but then again I'm a libertarian. Probably it would strike others as horrifically radical. What I find interesting is that many countries in Europe are trending towards something like realistic or populist free-market policies. Denmark and Holland are two such countries -- France is decidedly not (those who compare Fortuyn to Le Pen are wrong in a particularly loathsome fashion). Hartelijk bedankt, Mijnheer Curry!
