    And Denmark is one of the few countries where democracy was introduced before a working class was formed.40 Danish farmers attended Grundtvig’s high schools during the winter and learned about fellowship, equality and the necessity of agreement. But they were also masters of their own homesteads, and unlike Sweden, Denmark did not amass a blue-collar working class of any dimension until relatively late. The

One month later, the Danes have created a cooperative movement, the Finns have felled all the trees, the Norwegians have built a fishing boat and the Swedes are waiting to be introduced to each other.”
