I think that’s at least one explanation for how Estonia bounced back from a recession worse than Greece’s on an austerity regime with almost no social unrest. These people clearly remember when times were much worse.

Canadian Rattlesnake has the details.

AND YET FURTHER: The Estonian President has confirmed they were his tweets.
