Simply the best: Parody and political sincerity in Iceland - Boyer - 2013 - American Ethnologist - Wiley Online Library
“Pursuing a self‐described anarcho‐surrealist politics in the aftermath of Iceland’s banking crisis, Jón Gnarr shocked the country’s political establishment by winning the mayoral election in Reykjavík in May 2010. In this article, I explore the rise of Gnarr’s Best Party, especially its refusal to accept a distinction between parody and sincerity in its mode of political performance. Against the backdrop of the increasing monopolization of (neo)liberal political discourse and action, I discuss how “Gnarrism” reflects at once something old and something new in northern liberal democracy.”

Is Iceland’s coronavirus testing showing that 50% of cases have no symptoms?
"“DeCODE has now screened 10,401 individuals in Iceland. Of those, 92 were positive. So about 0.9% of those who we screened in the general population turned out to be positive. And that is probably the upper limit of the distribution of the virus in society in general,” Kári explained."

아이슬란드는 인구 36만 명의 작은 도시
증상이 없는 사람도 모두 검사를 실시한다.

아이슬란드는 지금까지 총 3,787명을 검사했고, 이중 218명이 양성으로 나왔다.
검사한 3,787명 중 1,800명은 무증상자인데도 검사를 진행했으며, 이중 1%(19명)이 양성이 나왔다.
이탈리아의 작은 마을 Vo는 약 3,300명의 인구가 있는데, 여기도 전수 검사를 실시했으며, 이중 3%가 양성 판정을 받았고, 이 사람들 대부분 증상이 없었다.
이탈리아의 Veneto라는 작은 지역도 3,000명의 주민 모두를 테스트. 양성이 나온 66명을 2주간 격리 후 다시 검사, 아직도 6명이 양성.
