Iceland's Pirate Party wins 10 seats, will need unlikely coalition to rule

Sounds like a really free country

It's refreshing to see so many different parties in play there. It's a far cry from the hopeless two-party duopoly (e.g. Deomcrat/Republican or Liberal/Labor) that prevails in most western democracies, with either one is as bad as the other and nothing changes regardless of who you vote for. Iceland seems to have got it right by enabling small parties instead of the false-democracy corporate oligarchy we have.

The more I read about Iceland, the more I want to go and live there.
