Sj ra gmul ra: HITA LEIKSINS
Inngangur: Ran sem hr fer eftir var flutt fundi Aluflokksflagi Reykjavkur 14.feb.2009. Bshaldabyltingin hafi spa burt ntri rkisstjrn Geirs Haarde og Ingibjargar Slrnar. Vi erum stdd strandstanum eftir hrun, og kosningar vndum. Ran ber ess merki, a hn er skrifu niur eftir eftir upptku. Gamall vinur var a taka til hj sr, fann etta frum snum og sendi mr. Ran rifjar vel upp andrmsloft essara daga. Hn er flutt af miklum tilfinningahita. En g f ekki betur s en, a rkhugsunin standist vel ljsi sari tma.

a er helst spurningin um, hvort Evrpusambandsaild og upptaka evru hefi reynst okkur jafn vel og rumaur vnti . Ef vi hefum fengi smu mefer og rar, Grikkir og Kpurbar, .e.a.s. veri krafir um a borga skuldir reiumanna, hefum vi fari r skunni eldinn. En astur voru arar hr en ar. Hr hrundu ekki bara einstakir bankar, sem urfti a bjarga til a fora kerfishruni. Hr var kerfishrun fjrmlakerfi og gjaldmiillinn, hvort tveggja fr smu lei. Hvernig hefi Evrpusambandi brugist vi? v getur enginn svara me vissu.

Evrpusambandsaild reyndist Eystrasaltsjum vel. ar var munurinn s, a bankakerfi var eigu tlendinga (sem uru a bera skaann), og gjaldmilarnir stust, enda bundnir vi evruna. Kannski er helsti munurinn s, a Eystrasaltsjir komust t r kreppunni tveimur rum. Vi virumst hins vegar vera a safna nja, me v endurtaka smu mistkin og fyrir hrun. Frambarlausnir ba nrra valdhafa.

The Transition from totalitarianism to democracy: WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE BALTIC ROAD TO FREEDOM AND POST-INDEPENDENCE EXPERIENCE?
The Baltic road to freedom signaled not only a national reawakening, but a democratic uprising as well. Those three small nations Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania wanted to restore their independent states. They had suffered more than most during and after the Second World War, having been the victims of invasion, military occupation and annexation into the USSR, as well as repeated deportations en masse to the Gulag.

The leaders of the independence movements had therefore every reason to expect, that they would be welcomed with open arms back into the familiy of European democracies.

SOLIDARITY OF SMALL NATIONS: UTOPIAN DREAM OR PRACTICAL POLITICS?
The Baltic road to freedom in the late 80s and early 90s coincided with the endgame of the Cold-War. It signifed both a national reawakening and a democratic uprising. The outside world was impressed by the emergence of powerful grassroots movements, which demonstrated their capacity to mobilize the will of the people remember the human chain in August 1989? This was democracy in action. The leaders of the independence movements had therefore every reason to expect, that they would be welcomed with open arms back into the family of European democracies.

But they were in for a rude awakening. Instead they were admonished for irresponsibility and even labeled as spoilers of the peace. They were told to behave responsibly for the greater good of all. And advised to settle for a compromise with their colonial masters, without any preconditions. Wouldnt some form of home-rule within the USSR be good enough?
