Scandinavia, between East and West

By Henning K. Friis | Go to book overview

Foreword

SCANDINAVIA'S position geographically between East and West is obvious to anyone who looks at a map. Scandinavia's middle position between East and West in the conflict of political ideas is equally obvious.

In that conflict it is inevitable that particular interest should be aroused by a group of countries that seem to have pursued "the middle way" successfully; by countries in which much, if not most, of the driving force of economic life is still geared to individual initiative and enterprise, while at the same time the state has become a potent factor in controlling economic individualism to the end that the benefits of individualism shall be more widely shared and the evils mitigated.

The middle way is often thought of in this country as an end in itself -- as a condition to be achieved or avoided, depending upon one's point of view. And perhaps the middle way is an end in itself in the sense that any democratic form of government, based on respect for the individual, must inevitably involve a whole framework of compromises and balances between the political and economic forces within the country where it exists.

But certainly the people of the countries of the middle way do not consider that they have reached any final solution of their governmental and social problems. Rightly so. They, like the rest of the world, are on the move; and they cannot stop where they are
