Finnish Music Response and Social Justice World Rankings

I love the sound of the Finnish language and the fact that the music is so dependent on the natural rythms of the language makes for some really interesting songs.  I especially appreciated the humor of the Finnish people.  Looking to "Land of Sorrowful Songs" as an example, it seems like they choose to laugh about some of the horrible things that humans do as a way of better coping with them.

Scandinavia was also in the news this week and all 5 countries topped a listing of social justice by country in the NY Times.
