Democracy from mkk on Vimeo. A fuss about election campaign funding started in Finland in spring 2008. It turned out that different types of companies, investors and store chains had supported parties’ candidates campaigns in 2007 parliamentary election. All this type of funds should be reported and this was not done. Basically both of the […]

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

Cristo si è fermato a Eboli: Why do I remember Carlo Levi and the saying “Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli” , when facing the conflict between a European level currency and national economic policies, as well as when following the many efforts to correct the design and to advance on the road to a robust, resilient and democratically legitimate euro area? In the blog post A better future for the EMU? we saw how the Five Presidents’ Report outlined the unfinished work and the road...

As Fidel Castro stepped down from the helm of Cuba, one of the last structures of cold war ceased to exist. Another signal of the end of an era was Kosovo's independence - now the socialist Yugoslavia is only a chapter in the history book. It took almost twenty years after breaking the Berlin wall to vaporize the confrontation of the Western and the Eastern block. I think it's safe to say that the time has changed. Three hoorays for the breath of democracy in new areas!

After some days I feel the need to practise my Finglish again. Now I'm telling you the basics of Finnish democracy. Finland, land of the free, sexual liberty, was born out of the ashes of Great Russian Imperium. The Czar-one. Not the Putin-one. Czar was gone in March,1917, and during the continuum of Revolutions in Russia some local senators were crazy enough to declare Grand Duchee of Finland as an independent country in December. General strike and rebellious Russian troops in Helsinki - not...

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

Hello people. After returning to Oulu, I kept myself superbusy by working about 5 diaz a week, going to school, and playing basketball, while dedicating almost all of my free time to skyping with my better half. Needless to say, days and weeks went by really fast. Had I not had all these preoccupations, my head would have inevitably imploded from the exessive boredom that my dear old city exudes. Nevertheless, by early November, as days began to grow darker, I knew i had to escape the darkness...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

The winds of change blowing through the Middle East are bringing enormous hopes for change.  In Egypt, where Hosni Mubarak helped to maintain the siege on Gaza, there is now a big public campaign to open to Rafah crossing. It has not succeeded yet, but the situation in Egypt remains very fluid and hopeful. And the pressure is growing on Israel also to abandon the illegal siege.  Viva Palestina is liaising constantly with our friends in the Middle East to assess what the next steps are to...

Vanhempainvapaan lomassa on jäänyt aikaa jonkin verran myös lukemiselle. Eräs vaikuttavimpia romaaneja vähään aikaan on Tahar Ben Jellounin Lähtö , joka kertoo marokkolaisen nuoren miehen ja hänen perheensä tarinan. Joka vuosi satoja, ellei tuhansia laittomia siirtolaisia katoaa Välimereen heidän pyrkiessään Eldoradoksi uskomaansa Eurooppaan jonka valot näkyvät omalta rannikolta. Romaani kertoo Tangerin katujen elämän toivottomuudesta, työttömyydestä ja turhuudesta. Tämä...

Olin perustamassa parlamenttiin EFD- ryhmää, Europe of Freedom and Democracy. Tuon ryhmän puheenjohtajaksi valittiin Nigel Farage, minusta tuli pari kuukautta ryhmän muodostamisen jälkeen ryhmän työvaliokunnan puheenjohtaja.

It's hard enough as it is to secure rape convictions but you'd hope it wouldn't be much of a feat when the defendant's only defense is that he fell and landed in her: A Saudi millionaire has been cleared of raping a teenager after claiming he might have accidentally penetrated the 18-year-old when he tripped and fell on her. Property developer Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of forcing himself on the girl as she slept off a night of drinking on the sofa of his Maida Vale flat. He had already...

To those of us who love strange literature, Rukhnama is doubtless a gem. It is the sequel to the Bible and the Qur´an written by the dictator of Turkmenistan, President Saparmurat "Turkmenbashi" (the leader of all Turkmens) Niyazov. Available in various different languages at the website of the government of Turkmenistan, it must be one of the most bizarre pieces of literature written in the past few hundred years. While I do not wish to dwell on the contents of this extraordinary book, there...

Cinema Mac Mahon where Patricia escapes to, and from, still exists. So, two days in Paris on my own. What to do, I wondered, before the trip. The list of must-sees is never-ending. Then I remembered how fun it was to spot filming locations in New York with Heidi. The movie, for me, in Paris, would of course be Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless (À bout de souffle) . I used IMDb for spotting the filming locations . Unfortunately, I found www.movie-locations.com only after my trip. I decided to walk...

No, this post is not about Iraq, or any other political issue I have normally written about. This is about... wait for it... TV! Hooray! In recent days I have been so fortunate as to be exposed to some quality TV: I´ve spent hours on end watching old Monty Python stuff, and I´ve also enjoyed watching numerous episodes of the 1967 British classic, The Prisoner . I must say nothing that has been produced in recent years comes even close to the brilliance of these two classics. To prove my...

Finnish vampire slayer Jessikka Aro recounts her experience as both investigator and victim of Russian black magic on Ukraine Russia’s black magic on Ukraine has rarely been out of the international media limelight over the past two years.

Käsitteet "elämä", "yksilöllisyys", "oikeus", "vapaus", "vastuu", "kulttuuri", "yhteiskunta", "kokemus", "tapa",  ovat keskeisiä käsitteitä, kun pohditaan ihmisen kasvun ja kasvatuksen olemusta yhteisössä. Tarkastelen seuraavassa näiden käsitteiden merkitystä John Deweyn kasvatusfilosofisesta ja J. V. Snellmanin oikeus- ja moraalifilosofisesta näkökulmasta, jota kautta muodostuu kasvun yhteiskuntafilosofinen ohut kudelman alku. Kudelma on ohut, koska perustan kirjoituksen vain...

We are approaching the moment of truth. Let us wait for the “Leaders’ Agenda” president Donald Tusk is going to present to the European Council (EUCO), before we definitively state that the EU27 heads of state or government have become impetus takers, instead of impetus providers, as they imagined in Article 15(1) TEU. But the years since the Lisbon Treaty entered into force have revealed the limitations of an intergovernmental EU, while the world has become even more challenging. The...

President George W. Bush claims to be bringing democracy and western values to Iraq. A former US Army interrogator in Iraq, Tony Lagouranis , testified on Sky News that Americans used torture to acquire information in Iraq. They did not torture only such people who they supposed to be guilty of hostilities, but anybody, in the belief that all Iraqis had information about the hostilities. As a result, in Iraq anyone could be tortured by the Americans.
