Everything about your country is purgatory.
You exist in a stalemate with yourselves.
There is almost no incentive to do more because of tax rates.
People are so empty, no sense of community.
Except when it is time to pretend.
Alcoholism is rampant and everyone drinks moonshine.
The longest conversation I hate with a neighbor while I lived there was when he was standing out drunk at 2 am staring at the sun. He really had to explain to me that he was Norwegian but his wife was Danish.
