Why is Finland cranking out such great music these days?
Lordi, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Fintroll, wow. I was listening to some of this today.

Why can't we crank out good stuff like the Finns?

God, I hate those double bass pedals.

sorry, I've just been around too long. I am curious to know what they are saying, though.

5. no, I don't mind the classical influences and skill
it's just the return of prog that scares me a bit, since I was a prog fanatic before punk took me down another path.

10. our economic federalism is too large
Finland has only 5+ millions of people. This 5 millions has a very effective
democracy, where every finn is given their human rights per the United Nations standards.

This small federal, would be like the US states if the federal were not as it is,
and given a chance to diversify to produce great art and great life. Finland is
proof that democracy in its parliamentary form works under 50 million people, but
does increasinly look like repression of minority rights at bigger paradigms.

(a democracy of 50 million can repress the rights of 24 millions no problemo), and
this repression number is just below 50% and gets too big to where it becomes
unstable like in the US.

I wholly recommend a visit to finland, i like it there. It inspires art.
