This is not accurate. People are inspired by actions in faraway places,
and acheive remarkable things. A finnish master of a secret society was
ambassador to France while also Benjamin Franklin wa there, and they
had discourses on the possibility of Finnish independence (following the
precepts of Continental US independence). Amusingly enough Franklin
thought that Finnish independence was a pipe dream. But the secret
society did achieve in putting in force the motions that do make Finland
an independent motion. The point there is, that had there not been the
US "ideal" of independence, the whole plot might have been lost, and
there need never have been any [[Anjala conspiracy]].
