There you have it, yet another thing that the Dutch are doing right. Children here in the US do not understand simple things like treating their
elders with respect, and esentially the old addage 'do unto others' which relates heavily to good karma. My parents raised me to be a very civil and
understanding person, who accepts others and their views. But there are many here in the states who do not share my values. For the past few years I
have been making an annual vacation to the Netherlands, and even though there is a large cultural divide between NL and US, you all seem very
accepting of others and it is such a great country to visit.
I do agree that this is a great step toward properly educating the youth of today, and it seems poinient that it is beginning in the Netherlands. The
Dutch sure seem to have this freedom thing down, and I would do anything to contribute my Professional IT knowledge to your country, but alas I dont
see becoming an expat anytime soon as fiscally responsible. One day I hope to be part of such a culture where Karma, Happyness and True Freedoms are
valued by all, in other words I really hope to move to the Netherlands soon.
