You probably have heard the claim "that it's too bad Israel is not Scandinavia".
The implication is that in those countries, the atmosphere is calm.
But I took a look at a map of the area:
The distance between western Norway and eastern Finland is approximately 1000+ kilometers.
My question is simple: why, within that area, there need be three separate states? The Norwegians, Swedes and Finns can't get together but they know how to advise us how to live together?
