That was funny.
Also makes me want to visit there too. It looks cool there.
Looks can be deceiving. Beyond Amsterdam, there isn't much. Even though there are some legitimate inventions by the Dutch, most just do what the US
does and are oblivious to many things.
Like how they celebrate slavery each year with their children, "Black Pete and St Nicholas" and deny it's rascist or inappropriate but say it's a
party for the children even though people have objected.
They let you buy weed, but you can't grow it, dispensaries are allowed to sell but not buy, growing is illegal, where does the weed come from? Nobody
They can't take care of mental health, they follow the DSM from the US, it's a big issue mental health care organizations can not take on patients
because there's not enough money. They let their elderly kill themselves and probably the mentally insane in the future too. In general the Dutch are
decent people though but as they say there is some truth in any joke.
They give benefits and houses to refugees just like that, but not to their own. You buy a house in the US for 50k and you get a lot, not so in the
Netherlands where 50k is maybe a room for seniors only, realistic is like 150k for a 2 room apartment or 200k for a small house and that's about the
cheapest you'll get.
