When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Are you suggesting that Europe is becoming more militaristic? Finland has a long and sad history with Russia, so it only makes sense.
I am supportive of Finland joining NATO to an infinite degree. Specifically because of Russia’s aggression.
It’s ironic that Russia’s actions have brought about the exact opposite of its desired reality!
I think living next door to a volatile and dangerous country would make me gook for a safe haven and Finland wants to avoid being the next victim to Putin’s ego!
