Of course public opinions need to be shaken up. We see demonstrations all the time about all kinds of things, but no one, nowhere has marched because of this. Soini: No one has taken responsibility for Syria, quoted on Yli.Fi, "Foreign Minister Soini: Why is no one marching for Syria?" http://yle.fi/uutiset/foreign_minister_soini_why_is_no_one_marching_for_syria/8675443, February 16, 2016

„A lot of people ask the question about internet usage, "How much is too much?" Our view is it depends on how that time is spent. One of the things I feel really strongly about is there’s a lot of innovation and there’s a lot of competition, and that’s driving a lot of product improvement and a lot of usefulness and a lot of usage and also a lot of scrutiny.“
