Elämme aikaa, jota historioitsijat tulevat luonnehtimaan poikkeuksellisena murroskohtana. Maatamme on samanaikaisesti kohdannut sekä ilmastonmuutos että uusien kansaryhmien ilmentyminen maassamme. Nämä molemmat tahdostamme riippumattomat ilmiöt vaikuttavat meihin metsää, lunta ja naapuriamme rakastaviin suomalaisiin tavalla, jota emme kukaan odottaneet, saatikka toivoneet. Suurin muutospaine on havaittavissa etelän suurissa kaupungeissa, joissa uudet kansanryhmät valtaavat tilaa Peltoset jalassa syntyneiltä suomalaisilta […]
