Latvijas Avize - Latvia | 17/08/2010

Latvia can learn from Estonia

The daily Latvijas avīze complains that the Latvians are full of apathy in the run-up to this October's parliamentary elections, and points to the country's more active and successful neighbour Estonia: "Of course there has been fraud and self-enrichment in Estonia in the past 20 years. And the Estonians have left their country to seek work abroad. Yet all in all Estonian society is developing in a desirable direction. It would be unthinkable for the Estonians to despise their state or be indifferent to the future of their country. It would be unthinkable for them to calmly sell off their state assets or repeatedly trust politicians who have shown that they care far more about their own private interests or party interests than the well-being of society. It would be unthinkable for the Estonians to stay away from the polling stations. Apathy is the worst choice a nation can make."
