We don't like tax cheats.
So, in essence, Finns are expected to narc on their neighbors? That is just creepy. It is literally 1970's DDR without an absurdly muscular women's swim team.

:lol:

While I can find out how much one person earns and pays taxes does not mean that I use the privilege. Actually I never have.

But we have an open society, and for those in power it is kind of good thing that people can see the money they earn.

It is one form of checks and balances. ;)

Secretly ringing up the Finnish version of the Stasi and reporting your neighbor's house is too nice for his stated income is NOT my definition of "an open society".


Jesus, man, you people have either been brainwashed or you have a national iodine deficiency.

Where is the spying?

OTOH there is much more government spying on the citizens in to US now than ever in the DDR. ;)

Seems like Finns are just conditioned to have big brother looking over their shoulders. Looks like the Soviet influence runs deeper then Nero would like to admit.
