Description
I will argue that in models with many parameters that are unknown or undetermined from first principles, a small  coupling or mass can naturally arise even if it  is not protected by a symmetry or the result of some dynamics.
On the example of the minimal supersymmetric model I will demonstrate that, contrary to commonly accepted views, the electroweak scale up to 3 orders of magnitude below superpartner masses is completely natural.
