Supposedly this Finnish professor of sociology and researcher on racism, Vesa Puuronen, was formerly a Communist, the Tundra Tabloids however believes otherwise. It’s safe to assume that Vesa Puuronen is actually someone who sorely misses the Soviet Union of old, and the Marxist banner that used to fly above the Kremlin. Finnish Blogger Vasrahammer accurately labels the guy as a cultural Marxist, and the TT agrees, and adding to that description the label of statist as well.
This cultural Marxist statist (I doubt that he’s sympathizes with capitalism either) was caught trying to reinvent the meaning of word ”racism”. Puuronen-type statists seek to chip away at the civil society by continuously placing it on the defensive, tearing at its civil institutions and social fabric, and in this case with baseless charges of ‘racism’ and ‘inequality’ that have no foundation whatsoever. What they envision is a Marxist utopian society where inequality and social injustice no longer exists.
In great measure, Finland has embarked upon that path, the cultural Marxist path many decades ago, and is very much the quintessential egalitarian society, and it’s come at a major cost to individual liberties and property rights. Only now have people become aware of the Finnish state’s over reach as people are lining up to confront unequal treatment before the law as in the Halla-aho case.

The degree of statism in a country’s political system, is the degree to which it breaks up the country into rival gangs and sets men against one another. When individual rights are abrogated, there is no way to determine who is entitled to what; there is no way to determine the justice of anyone’s claims, desires, or interests. The criterion, therefore, reverts to the tribal concept of: one’s wishes are limited only by the power of one’s gang.
That gang Rand speaks of happens to be the Finnish political, academic and societal ”self anointed elite”, which Vesa Puuronen very accurately represents. It’s the very same elite that saw to the political witch hunt of the Helsinki city councilman, Jussi Halla-aho, that ended with his being convicted on highly dubious hate speech laws for ”violating the sanctity of religion”. Below are a few words of Vasarahammer that accurately describes the mindset of those who are steering this country into greater tyranny than ever before. KGS
VASARAHAMMER: Anti-racist scholars and activists are deliberately blurring the concept of racism. Simply categorizing is racism according to Puuronen, and cultural racism is of course ‘racism’ as well. Puuronen, however, fails to note that racism and “classifying” others occurs in all cultures and in all countries. Unfortunately, people consciously and unconsciously categorize people into different groups by appearance, manner of speaking, religion and other similar factors. Only a caucasian westerner is still obliged to actively eliminate racism itself, and feel guilty.
A Muslim, who deems the non-believer lower than themselves as human beings on the basis of religion, in contrast, can’t be guilty of racism and he should not flog himself, or to examine his own attitudes.
