Yes, we need to start cross-cultural and cross-religion discussion on democracy, freedom of expression, justice, human rights, fair division of pain and gain. And this is hard, since we cannot just dictate or relapse in submission.

A good book about these issues is Cornel West's "Democracy matters", which tells about the state of American democracy, the prospect of democracy in Islamic countries, on the ways to solve the Israel-Palestine-conflict.

The way Finnish politicians are behaving is as shameful as their behavious in the 1970s. They do not think, they are just knee-jerking cowards.
