An american was on a visit to Scandinavia, he works for a Swedish company and they had a briefing about future investments... On arrival you could easily point out that single person, how tragic it may seem..
A few beers later and well, his culture truly became visible..

He opposed a Scandinavian system and tried to imply the ways of the west was the only right one, law and order, that was just something for people that came from less fortunate backgrounds.. He starting taking freedoms he is privileged in the big country to the west, and thought well to himself;" America is the world isnt it? "

The law enforcement system quickly took notice of the loud american in a quiet Scandinavian system, and all of sudden he heard the words;" You are disturbing the peace ". And one of the few words you never say in a Scandinavian culture;" Do you know who i am ? " Followed with a LEO stood eyes to eyes and said;" We dont need anything to lock you up, there is no 2nd amendment here, you violated your privileges. So do everyone a favor and behave as a normal human being. " The American stood quiet, he believed the world was the same culture he was brought up in.

Only problem it isnt, rules and regulations is for the citizens, Screaming like a mad Texan will do you no good in the cold hearted winter Kingdom of Scandinavia.. And your so called freeworld only exists cause a few granted you privileges of evolving the human race, its when you fall out of character you need to be shown your place..

Ill quote as spock says ; " “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”

Odd... What does the 2nd have to do with anything? That is the right to bear arms. It has nothing to do with Free Speech. I guess I don't get the point?
With that said welcome to Hillary's plans for America...

This story has absolutely no context at all. You present a typical caricature of the idiotic American tourist trope and give no context for how and why any of this was happening to him.

I am completely lost as to how he became the villain beyond "Cause Murica!" which makes this as much about your own inherent bias as any inherent bias you wanted your character to portray.

Yes, Americans could use some humility in regards to foreign cultures, but YOU, sir, obviously have NO IDEA what you are talking about. Your assumptions about American culture are as bad as any Americans' assumption about your own. Your epistle makes no sense at all. What the hell does the 2nd amendment have to do with any of this? Further, you seem to be saying this fellow was "disturbing the peace" by what? Talking? Are you going to put someone in jail for talking? How does that make your culture better?

Get a clue, dude. You're showing your ignorance.

Wow, so dictatorship/communism is better... As long as everyone thinks and says exactly what their leaders say everything will be rainbows and unicorns? Sad world you want.

So, your little story was all about how wrong it was for him to tell them what to do, but you now claim the point is to tell us how you think we should be?

That's not at all hypocritical.

We call it Socialism, a better word.. It means a institution regulates everything, healthcare, school, human rights actually.. In reality and not in a Hollywood movie

No i believe you are taking things out of context to fit your biased opinions.. " I believe " if you cant behave as a normal human being you lost your privileges, just like dogs on a leash..

Well then, perhaps your story ought to explain what a "normal human being" is supposed to be. As it stands, there is no context for comparison. You seem to expect it to be self-evident, but it is not.

Socialism? So your version of socialism means everyone thinks and acts the same and cannot think or act for themselves? Why not just be programmed robots?

Look, I get that you are very happy in your little state-run cocoon. I wish you much joy of it. But this country (the US) is where those people who cannot tolerate such an existence used to come to direct their own lives, and for a very long time, it largely worked.

Why on earth the rest of you seem to think it is a problem that we do our own thing and live our own lives without being told what to do by an aristocracy is beyond me.

Here's the thing ... not everyone is the norm. Some people and some places are different and that's OK. If it suddenly become the popular/normal thing to jump off of tall cliffs tomorrow, would you do it because everyone else is?

I also hope for its sake that if you every have a child that is in no way remarkable and perfectly ordinary and average and normal in every single way or else you might be too weirded out by it and seek to punish it.

So what You are typing is that the US should just shut up and behave correctly?

Then having HRC would do the exact opposite and You don't even have to leave the "S" section. See: "Syria". She has been wanting to get in there for 8 years because Her bo$$e$ in our 51st state, Israel™ wants the resources and the Israelis take what they want. See: Palestine.

Drumpf would be just as "BAD" but seeing He has His head so far up His own sphincter it wouldn't matter. I personally think He'll drop out prior to the end..

How do you think a culture works? I believe if someone has not been properly raised as a good human being he will have a problem to his late thirties with understanding the rest of the world..

"Properly Raised" "Good Human". Sorry, I already bit enough of this troll thread.... I really really hope you are just a trolling jerk and you don't really think what you spew is humanity.
