To tell the truth i agree. In my mind the reason is because people didin't want that. Human with authority tends to make all good happen to himself/herself therefore country as a whole doesen''t get it.

And those people who did all they could to make world a better place, the people with authority and its sheeps will go and kill those people.


Unfortunate, isn't it? Too bad the world isn't tolerant of ideals.

The world is a neglectful, abused and equally abusive place, twisted and stagnate on capitalism and the sacrifice of others. I resent politicians and anyone with any real sense of authority. The reason being because they ahve the power to change something and make it better for the future generations, but instead inner turmoil, and their and every else's eprsonal agenda, takes front seat to that otherwise utopia ambition.

I suppose there isn't much I can do about it besides remain a fervent idealist. If only I could be President or a lobbyist-- I could do so many things that would actually help the United States instead ofcontinue to ruin it's image. Though I doubt my ideals would appease everyone else, which is unfortunate.

What a corrupt world.


I think there is many many people with same ideals as you and i but the thing is that we would be assassinated by the shadow government on the day we take a seat to the kings throne.

Like J.F Kennedy for example.


I'm aware of that, actually. Inner turmoil is dangerous in and out of itself, because the party you represent would want a person of action-- not an idealist that wants to make the country into a wonderful place at the cost politicians personal gain. J.F. Kennedy wasn't bad, though it is unfortunate he didn't change anything like he could have.

Firstly, you've earned my respect. I haven't met too many idealists and you being outspoken is a good sign. Secondly we're derailing the thread, I think we should stop.

But, if anyone is from Finland here....is it really true that Donald Duck is banned there?


That is absolutely not true. The Finnish people love Donald Duck. It is extremely popular there.

I'm sure Finland is as shitty as the other places in Europe save a few. Who wants that many lakes... really.

Yeah, Europe totally sucks, doesn't it?

Surely, I've heard of Finland, but I loved some of the previous answers. (Oh yeah, I read the whole thread - it's only 4 pages so far.)
Practically there are a lot of rumours, concering stereotypes, flying around - but who would have believed that almost half of the people, who answered, have either never heard of Finland before or know little more than the name?

Aren't European countries appearing on American television - the news? (Awesome smiley.)

I want to live in Lappland of Finland if I can't live in Sweden. It's such a gorgeous place. Plus I really enjoy Finnish metal bands. Nightwish, Moonsorrow, Finntroll, Wintersun, Ensiferum, & all the other legendary bands. So I feel I should visit them. Helsinki looks a little strange, but I wouldn't mind visiting the capital. Very unfortunate that those cowardly terrorists attacked it

I know that it is a part of Scandinavia.

I think I've heard of something called "Wife races?" Where you have to carry your wife through an obstacle course, and if you win, you will get your wife's weight in Beer :D.

I don't know if that's true though...

And they enjoy cold water. Very much.
