The war of values ​​between Moscow and Helsinki

Consultations on Finland’s accession to NATO have brought the country back to the forefront after decades in which Helsinki pursued a policy of secession and neutrality in the face of international unrest.
These efforts, which come in the light of the outbreak of the Russo-Ukrainian war, lead to the thought of the prospects of Finland’s withdrawal from neutrality and its effects on European security. It is certain that Russia, which was one of its reasons. The crisis with Ukraine, the latter’s intention to join the European Union and NATO, will not simply accept the accession of Finland with which it shares a long border.
Finland’s proximity to NATO was not the first indication of its membership in the anti-Moscow camp, as it was preceded by statements, condemnations and the participation of other European countries in their policy of punishing Russia. This hostile policy towards the great neighbor was not without losses, as it affected the Finnish cities and border regions, which depended on Russian tourists and shoppers, who came in large numbers by train or by road. Today, after the closure of that train and the restriction of entry of Russian citizens, a trade that generated large daily incomes has been discontinued. You can imagine that some shopping malls and border complexes dependent on the Russians chose to close their doors today. However, the biggest loss was not an economic loss as much as a security loss. Since the middle of the last century, the two countries have pursued a balanced policy towards each other. Helsinki has maintained good relations with Moscow, committed not to join NATO, in return, the Russians did not see the need to threaten Finland as long as it respected the red lines. Today, if Finland ignores all these meanings, the result could be an extension of the war to its borders, and in the case of a small country unfamiliar with serious wars within its borders like Finland, the result will be more catastrophic than he. occurred in Ukraine, whose army and troops enjoy its popular defense capability and combat experience due to conflict with separatists. There is no doubt that Finland is taking a lot of risks when it enters into an open challenge with Russia, which needed it, and here we have to ask: why did it choose this and why membership in the American camp became a wish. by most Finns? The answer to this question requires a more in-depth study of the Finnish political and social reality, for which we will find that our information is very small and does not go beyond saying that it is the place where the happiest citizens live and in it which the government operates with unprecedented transparency, in which the official bears responsibility for all his expenses, including what he consumes from coffee cups. These clichés based on studies conducted by the United Nations or other organizations do not stand up to reality data. This happier country is also the highest in suicide rate and the rate of alcohol dependence is much higher than other European counterparts. We find the effect of addiction clear in marital violence and here is another paradox in which the state that prides itself on being the most empowering state for women is the one in which women are victims of domestic violence to the extent that dozens of them die for therefore.

Russia, which was one of the reasons for its crisis with Ukraine, the latter’s intention to join the European Union and NATO, will simply not accept the accession of Finland, with which it shares a long border.

The most important point that Finland shares with other Scandinavian countries like Sweden or Iceland is that these countries represent an example of a post-liberal society, in which Western values ​​are realized in their radical form, especially in relation to the family issue. . If you notice that there are many official women in these countries and many women work in professions or difficult fields that were owned by men, you should know that this is not a coincidence and it is not just helping or empowering women, but it is something that goes beyond that to be a philosophy of governance. Finland ranks high in this respect compared to other Western countries that have also adopted projects for full gender equality and the elimination of discrimination. In this country, just as young girls learn to be strong in character and body, boys also learn to discover their feminine sides. Parents are not ashamed to make men try on girls toys or makeup tools, or do whatever. can abolish the division of the world into men and women in their minds. What if boys like women, or a girl likes to play the role of boys? They can continue to do so, there is tolerance for the subject, and according to the prevailing social theory, the difference between the sexes is only a suggestion and a social projection. Society is what convinces someone that it is female or male. and this means that by changing this social view, changes are also annulled automatically, through laws and legislation, but also through education based on a “gender” curriculum that has no pro-male or female divisions, Finland and other Scandinavian family. have been able to create a new reality and impose it as a curriculum for society. The best proof of this is what was triggered by the Swedish “social” crisis, when immigrant children were withdrawn from their parents because of what was described as “gender” education that despised homosexuality, or interfered with children’s sexual choices. . Some see the domination for which women are famous, which seeks to create an opposite alternative to patriarchal society, to be a natural development, given that women in the region are descendants of the “Viking” civilization in which men were absent. for a long time. periods in their voyages leaving women to take responsibility, which is a good note, but not enough to justify, without accompanying the philosophy of redefining social roles. This redefinition is not limited to women carrying burdens that were seen as limited to men, but goes beyond this in all the details of life, including the exchange of roles at the level of emotional relationships, starting with the declaration of love and ending. with the marital relationship often turning into a field of competition and ending in failure .. Failed marriages and the condition of a single mother is not the only problem these societies face, but there is also a crisis in finding a partner, apparently power given to women has contributed to men’s fear or reluctance to approach them.
Returning to the expected crisis with Russia, we say that Finland and its neighbors represent everything that contradicts the ideology of the Russian government and society based on Orthodox traditions that reject moral liberalism in the European way. This contradiction makes the clash between the two sides inevitable, especially since the western camp, which mixes democracy with social liberalism, is not satisfied with the implementation of value standards within its borders, but rather seeks to export and export them. impose them through soft or direct influence. intervening globally, ignoring any change in culture or civilization. In the case of the Russian neighborhood, the two models would not live in a peaceful confrontation for long. This view makes us understand how Ukraine was just an excuse to hide behind a fierce war on social values, which reminds us of the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin: “They wanted a reason to punish Russia.” Finland and Sweden think this war is, in a way, their war.
