Editorial: Estonians choose freedom
Yesterday, Republic of Estonia celebrated its 98th anniversary. Quite an age, while we will have to admit that though old in a sense we're still rather young as of the 98 years we have managed to be free for less than a half. As penned by a Russian philosopher Nikolai Berdyaev: slavery is easy and freedom is hard, and for that very reason nations often opt for the former. Even so, in the 20th century Estonians did twice clearly declare that they desire to be free and it is vital in the future to stay true to that choice.

Alas, anonymous bloggers behind the Finnish «Todelinnen Tallinna» have achieved their assumed end: sowing ill will in Estonia-Finland relations – as high up as possible.
Editorial: Europe needs to speak a language the violent will understand
Freedom of expression and religion are foundational values, never to be given up! Countless in world and European history are the cases when words by somebody hurt the religious feelings in another. An achievement of civilisation being: such matters are debated in parliament and/or at court. This just cannot be that once not happy with what a fellow says, we grab a club or Kalashnikov.

Editorial: words will have to do
Yesterday, they killed journalists in Paris. Gruesome – as any act of terror, lives destroyed. Doubly dreadful when directed against the broader value of freedom of expression, and those standing in its defence.

Siobhan Kattago: Obama shared more in common with Ronald Reagan than I ever could have imagined
In the days leading up to President Obama’s state visit to Estonia on September 3rd, the eve before the NATO summit meeting in Wales, details of his schedule, travel plans and meetings were meticulously scrutinized. As streets closed and helicopters circled, the contrast between the heavy security surrounding the Commander in Chief and his message of freedom couldn’t have been starker. Obama’s visit dramatically underscored the complex relationship between freedom and security in a post-9/11 world.

Editorial: Estonia – example of staying free
Defending Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius is just as important as defending Berlin, Paris and London – a highlight from the US President Barack Obama’s speech in Tallinn, yesterday. Naturally, we need this assurance of unshakeable dedication. We need it declared to ourselves, to some lazy-like allies, and most of all to the potential aggressor.

President Obama met with Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves and Estonian Prime Minister Tavi Roivas in Tallinn, Estonia on September 3. The visit reinforced the close ties between the United States and Estonia, which are rooted in our shared values, ideals, and interests.

Editorial: banning Kremlin’s lies
Doubtless, experiences of Latvia and Lithuania in combating Kremlin’s propaganda deserve Estonian attention.
Editorial: street pluralism
At first glance, the increase of demonstrations in Estonia might be seen as sign of civil displeasure. In reality, this needs to be taken as development in democracy and civil society. Lately, our streets have seen slogans not against state and local government alone, but a private bank has also been targeted (protests against Swedbank, in Haapsalu). At University of Tartu, defence of classical faculties has taken on a virtual storm form. The Estonian is getting increasingly active.
