  1. 04.09.2011 - 17:12:58] snowblindfatal: there was an article in the paper last week
  2. [04.09.2011 - 17:13:34] snowblindfatal: over 20% of the leaders in large Finnish companies are finlandsvenska
  3. [04.09.2011 - 17:13:54] rustyslacker: what does that mean?
  4. [04.09.2011 - 17:14:07] snowblindfatal: People who live in Finland but want to maintain their high class Swedish status from generation to generation
  5. [04.09.2011 - 17:15:34] snowblindfatal: the article failed to mention that it's because they've throughout history been richer and thus more influential than the Finnish populace, and that there's a convenient 1/5 Swedish-speaking quota for economic and law universities
  6. [04.09.2011 - 17:15:45] snowblindfatal: so by default they've better chances to succeed
  7. [04.09.2011 - 17:16:15] snowblindfatal: for comparison, only about 1/20 of Finnish people are considered Finland's Swedes
  8. [04.09.2011 - 17:16:23] snowblindfatal: and most of those can speak Finnish perfectly fine
  9. [04.09.2011 - 17:16:28] snowblindfatal: they just refuse to do so
  10. [04.09.2011 - 17:16:36] snowblindfatal: fuck they're an arrogant bunch
  11. [04.09.2011 - 17:16:56] rustyslacker: so you have to learn Swedish because of elitist foreigners
  12. [04.09.2011 - 17:17:01] snowblindfatal: yes
  13. [04.09.2011 - 17:17:04] rustyslacker: who aren't even really foreigners?
  14. [04.09.2011 - 17:17:24] snowblindfatal: conquerors 1300-1809
  15. [04.09.2011 - 17:17:28] rustyslacker: hahaha
  16. [04.09.2011 - 17:19:38] snowblindfatal: the russian conquerors placated the people by giving Finnish a somewhat official status but still letting the Swedes rule
  17. [04.09.2011 - 17:23:36] snowblindfatal: the reason why they still have such a nice status in this age is because they have a political party
  18. [04.09.2011 - 17:24:03] snowblindfatal: practically all the Swedes vote for it, so it has a steady ~5% seats in the parliament
  19. [04.09.2011 - 17:24:37] snowblindfatal: also, they're always in the government, because they promise to vote for whatever the current government wants to do as long as Swedish's status is not touched
  20. [04.09.2011 - 17:25:21] snowblindfatal: they would agree about sending people to concentration camps if that's what the government wanted to do
  21. [04.09.2011 - 17:26:49] rustyslacker: BUT
  22. [04.09.2011 - 17:26:54] rustyslacker: you don't live in the United States, so there's that
