Finland - allergic to immigrants

man kan gentage sin undren over at moralpolitiet, riksdagen og Beate Winckler, helt har overset Finland. De faldende fødselstal som omtales, er ifølge økonomiprofessor Christen Sørensen* en overdreven frygt. I al fald i Danmark. Vi har 2 problemer: "Integrationen" og kvaliteten af uddannelsessystemet.

Castells, the sociologist, calls Finland's government "the most legitimate government in Europe," meaning it enjoys the highest degree of acceptance and deference from its people. That is one of the reasons, Finns say, that immigration is such a delicate issue. Opposition to it is widespread, by many accounts, but also muted.
