Below, is an Englishtranslation by Aapo Puhakkaof the article which Mikko Ellila wrote (I’ve only included the text and have left out the accompanyingpictures from his original article) and which the Finnish authorities are investigating him about.
Also, there’s a translation of the charges being made against Mikko.
I got both these texts from Laiva On Taynnavia a link from Thoughts on Freedom, The Official Blog of the Australian Libertarian Society.
Both of these are confirmed as being genuine by Mikko Ellila himself on his blog.
But first, let me state or remind the reader that when Mikko originally wrote to me he said…
I am writing to you because I received a letter from the municipalpolice department saying they want to interrogate me because of theanti-Muslim, pro-Israeli, pro-European, pro-American posts in myblog.
When you read the translation of the charges and of Mikko’sarticle,you’ll see that this is not in fact the case.
However, Mikko has clarified the misunderstanding as follows …
… I could not know this [what the specific charges referred to exactly] before Friday evening (the interrogation is on Monday) because he [Mikko Puumalainen, Ombudsman for Minorities of Finland]REPEATEDLY refused to specify his allegations and to email me the relevant material that he had sent to the police.
I was able to obtain the material from him only after I notified him that I could sue him for failing to send me the relevant material because the POLICE had explicitly asked me to comment on his allegations in written form, which I obviously could not do as long as I had not even SEEN the allegations in the first place. Puumalainen undoubtedly committed a CRIME by acting like this.
My opinion of Mikko Ellila’s article
Now that I’ve had a chance to read it in English – and assuming the translation is reasonablyaccurate – my opinion ofhis articleis that it is poorly reasoned and contains factual errors.
Furthermore, it seems toinclude a number ofracist notions.
As Ayn Rand defined and discussed racism:
It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage — the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry.
Mikko does this not, as far as I can discern, on the basis of outright blind prejudice. He refers to various statistics and historic facts regarding “whites”, “blacks”, “Asians”, and “Arabs/Muslims”.
But these statistics and historic facts are, in my view, grossly incomplete and leave out a great deal.
Mikkocredits “whites”, among other things, for bringing the world “European culture and modern western society” and he claims, among other things, that “blacks” have a lower intelligence and are innately more aggressive and prone to criminal actionsthan whites.
So, while I maintain that Finland’s Blasphemy Laws are disgracefuland should be repealed, and that Mikko Ellila is being unjustly persecuted, I challenge him, or anyone who agrees with the arguments of his article to explain the following …
… WHITES …
Of course there are many more. And we could also throw in various “White European” writers and philosophers who paved the way for brutality.
… BLACKS …

Ombudsman for Minorities
National Bureau of Investigation
Preliminary investigation, ethnic agitation
1. The jurisdiction of the Ombudsman
The duties of Ombudsman include prevention of ethnic discrimination, promotion of good ethnic relations, advancing the status and legal protection of ethnic minorities and foreigners in society as well as supervising compliance with the prohibition of ethnic discrimination (Law regarding Ombudsman for Minorities and National Discrimination Tribunal 1 , 660/2001).
2. Preliminary investigation
We thereby request National Bureau of Investigation to investigate whether an article “Society consists of People” found from http://mikkoellila.thinkertothinker.com fulfills the characteristics of a crime named Ethnic agitation. In addition, we ask you to initiate actions so that the article in consideration can be removed from the internet. Parts of the article attached here.
3. General issues regarding criminal law, chapter 11, 8
Freedom of expression has been secured by Finnish constitution (731/1999) 12. Freedom of expression consists of – according to the law in question – right to express, disseminate and receive information, opinions and other communications without prior prevention by anyone. Penal Code of Finland, (39/1889) chapter 11, 8 … criminalizes Ethnic agitation. The chapter in question restricts the freedom of speech. It is not possible to justify dissemination or distribution of racist statements or other information by appealing to freedom of speech.
Penal Code chapter 11, 8criminalizes dissemination of statements that where a certain race, a national, ethnic or religious group or a comparable group is threatened, defamed or insulted. It is customary to classify the characteristics of the chapter in the following manner:
Statement or other information. A statement or other information mentioned in the chapter can be given by verbally, in writing, by illustration or by gestures. It is essential that the statement or other information include threats, defamation or insults described by the penal code chapter.
Dissemination or distribution. In order for the characteristics (of the chapter) to be realized, the target of the statement must be an open group of people. According to the legal praxis, dissemination or distribution described by the chapter can be done via Internet.
Threatening, defamation or insulting. Threatening means e.g. threat by violence or threat by theft. The characteristics of defamation and insulting are comparable to offence against personal reputation (described in penal code Chapter 24 section 9). Defamation is e.g. spreading false information about ethnic groups being guilty of crimes or similar actions. Insults may contain truthful statements that have a purpose of offending. It is typical that insulting statements are not truthful. If this is the case, the lack of truth can be used as evidence of intentionality and it can emphasize the “intent for agitation”. Misleading statements, for example gross exaggeration, can be considered as defamation.
National, racial, ethnic or other population group. The list is not conclusive, because it includes term “other population group”.
Requirement for intent. The characteristics of the crime are fullfilled whether the agitation pursued by the suspect is successful or not. If the suspect has considered it possible for the agitation to succeed or he/she has had an indifferent attitude towards the agitation, act may be considered intentional.
4. Arguments for preliminary investigation
Article introduces defaming statements of different groups as facts. Text states as a so-called fact that: “Africans think that robberies, rapes, nepotism, corruption, clan wars, superstition and murders committed on a spur on moment are normal way of things. If Africans form a majority group in some country outside Africa, this country is transformed into Africa.” Text also introduces racist and defamative defamatory statements and racist thoughts in a textbook-style.
Certain groups are also threatened defamed. Article provides wrongful untruthful statements as facts and conclusions are made using these wrongful untruthful statements. Textbook-style is emphasised by using pictures. Message of the article is that whites are more intelligent than blacks. For instance, it is stated that “a population consisting of 500 million white people is more intelligent than population consisting of 500 million whites plus 100 million blacks”.
Writer is trying to make his statements so that they would look like scientific facts. For instance, writer refers to causality. An example: “Bringing negroes to Europe is bound to lower the average intelligence level because negroes have a lower median-IQ than whites. There is a positive correlation between intelligence and the standard of living.” In the concluding phase, the article describes blacks as dangerous, because – according to the writer – they often commit crimes and they are being parasitic, because – also according to the writer – they are unemployed and are “being parasites living off with the money of the European taxpayers.” Conclusion according to the writer: “When more negroes are brought to Europe, criminal activity shall rise”. Writer provides his solution to the problem in the last sentence: “if all those non-whites who currently live in Europe would move back to their originating countries, crime would be reduced by tens of percentages.”
Statements provided in the article are insulting and they also defame certain groups. Statements are greatly exaggerating, whole groups are described as stupid, criminal – meaning dangerous – and parasitic. It is obvious that writer wants to induce the reader with the same kind of loathing and contempt against a certain group that he himself feels (compare to Mika Illman: Hate against a human group, publication of a Finnish Bar Association, A-class N:o 262, s. 267-8).
Text compares certain ethnic groups to animals. According to Illman (page 269), statements like this belong to the core of penal code, chapter 11 8 and without doubt fulfill the characteristics of a crime. This is a question about despising the humanity of certain groups and also about describing certain groups being of lesser value. Illman (page 269) has made a remark that e.g. describing refugees as parasites fullfills the characteristics of a crime described in penal code, chapter 11 8.
It is also necessary to take into consideration that text constantly introduces the word “negro”. According to legal praxis, referring to individuals using this word is considered an offence against individual’s personal reputation. Use of this word demonstrates that there is intent to defame and it also aggravates the statements that have been made.
It is the viewpoint of the Ombudsman – while observing all issues as a whole– that disseminating this article clearly fullfills the characteristics described in penal code, chapter 11 8 .
5. Receiving information about preliminary investigation
We thereby request to determinate the approximate length of the preliminary investigation. Also, when the time is due, we request for information about the results of the preliminary investigation.

Society Consists of People
By Mikko Elilla
In the discussion of immigration and multiculturalism many people seem to forget, that every society and culture is created and upheld by certain kind of people.
European culture and modern western society is created by white people.
One could see in Africa societies and cultures created by black people, if there were no railroads, airplanes, streets with asphalt, stone houses, electricity, telephone, television, etc.
People of Middle-East have created culture of desert-living tribes, that is so called islamic culture.
People of East-Asia, mostly Japanese and Chinese, created in their times an society, where standard of living and technical ability was centuries higher than in Europe.
Collectivistic, authoric way of thinking, typical for Asians, lead however to stagnation, because of which for example America and Africa were conquered by Europeans, not by Japanese or Chinese.
Rationalism and individualism is typical for European way of thinking and a necessary result of these is support of private property and free market-economy. For this reason industrial revolution happened in Europe and not in Asia.
Asians can live in a European society, because they have no problems to live by its rules. In their own societies Asians don’t want to implement values of European enlightenment philosophy, because they really see no use for them.
Asians think, that for example freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association and gathering and free elections are unnecessary nonsense. Idolatry of leaders as absolutist auctorities, support of official ideology of state without critic and persecution of dissidents are normal, self-evident and necessary things for Asian people.
Robberies, rapes, nepotism, corruption, clan-warfare, superstition and murders committed by momentary impulse are normal things for African people. If Africans form majority in some country outside of Africa, this country transforms to Africa. This has happened for example in Haiti, where voodoo-culture and society torn by bolshevistic anarchy strangely reminds us of African culture and society.
In the USA and Canada Negroes behave in somewhat acceptable way only, when they are clearly in minority. Surrounding white society, on the other hand with machinery of violence (police, prisons, armed self-defence, KKK-style vigilantes), on the other hand by social and cultural pressure, forces Negroes to adapt to western culture.
White Americans are of course Europeans, so society dominated by them is a European society in America.
Correspondingly black Americans are Africans living in America, so areas dominated by them are African islands in the sea of European white society.
Areas with negro-majority of course would differ more of white areas, if they were independent city-states. Because they belong to the United States, there is the same law in force than in other places in the United States as well. It is, as if the surrounding white society would occupy these negro-enclaves by upkeeping at least some what the laws of white people also within negro-ghettoes. Negroes themselves wouldn’t have created those laws and they wouldn’t try to upkeep them.
Negroes obey laws regulated by white society only, when they are concretedly upkept with harsh discipline. If discipline softens, Negroes african biological character of people is manifested in their behaviour.
Even a lion can obey man in circus, when it is kept in hard discipline by whip. If man stops upkeeping hard discipline with lion, lion starts jumping on mans face.
Biology is a destiny. Living creatures can’t do anything for their biology. Every opposition of sociology and biology, for example feminism, is based on attempt to refute mans character as a biological being.
Human is however animal, homo sapiens. Man hasn’t been created as a picture of any god. There is no gods and nobody has created human.
Human is biological matter modified by genes, which obey certain biological rules. Like a man needs certain kind of food to stay alive, there are certain rules related to aggressivity, sexuality and intelligence in mans actions.
An army created by 100 000 men is stronger than army created by 100 000 women, ceteris paribus. Male population of Finland does more rapes than female population of Finland. Intelligence level of population of 500 million white people is higher than in population of 500 million whites and 100 million Negroes.
Bringing Negroes to Europe lowers the mean intelligence level of European population, because Negroes have lower median-IQ than whites. There is a positive correlation between intelligence and standard of living. Causality goes in both directions: On the one hand increase in standard of living increases intelligence level by decreasing for example brain-damages caused by malnutrition in population, on the other hand more intelligent population can create higher standard of living for them. When the mean intelligence level decreases, the standard of living of the country decreases. Stupid people can’t upkeep high standard of living, because standard of living is the same as the real value of sum of all production of items and services per capita; stupid people can upkeep as valuable total production of commodities as intelligent people, so a more stupid society has a lower standard of living. So bringing Negroes to Europe would lower the standard of living in Europe, even if Negroes wouldn’t be social bums living on taxpayers money.
In addition to this Negroes nowadays are mostly unemployed or other parasites living on European taxpayers money. When more bums living on taxpayers money come to Europe, there is less tax money. The more Negroes come to Europe, the less there can be afforded to public health care, education, pensions, childcare, etc. in Europe.
Negroes commit more crimes than white people. When more Negroes are brought to Europe, crime increases. This is not any picture of future, but a realised scenario. In Finland immigrants do more then over 20 times more rapes per capita than Finnish people. The more there is immigrants from Africa and Middle-East in Europe, the more there is crime in Europe. If all non-white people nowadays living in Europe would move back to their countries of origin, crime rate would decrease several tens of percents in Europe.
