I would offer Guns are not the reason Environment is
By birth, I am Scottish/Irish but adopted and raised by a Jewish Family in NY
Recently I moved to the Mountains, i'm at 7,000 feet in a low population zone
Happier (despite my rants in here :lol than I have ever been in my life.
Nothing has changed, i'm not better off, I haven't reopened my business yet properly I have all the same problems I had 6 months ago, Yet... I'm
1000x more content daily.
I would offer that all of Northern Europe is this way, just as I am here, in the proper population density, proper altitude, temperature, air for my
A great example of this would be Native Americans for whom many communities suffer obesity and Alcoholism... because of out culture...
I often defend against this massive push to globalism and integration and this would be one major reason why...
Not everyone is the same, we are different and what's good for one in one place is not necessarily so for another.
I... was NEVER happy in a high population zone, I have the gift of gab having been raised by Jewish people, I have the intelligence... but on some
level NY to LIVE drove me bonkers, always wanted to punch someone in the face...
Heat makes me a lethargic mess, my energy level drops
Living in Phx in a non seasonal location depressed the heck out of me and it has taken a long time to fully recover
The Swiss Just benefit from being in a Culture they belong in, where the food and lifestyle WORKS for them, in the environment they were evolved to
Live in without the Stress of cultural competition?
All I know is, I live in a place, I could describe as the Most SWISS like in America and it's a largely Northern European population, we have skiing
yes lol, My neighbor is an Elk I have 4 seasons, breathe fresh air...
And the environment is very similar, very Liberal, yet at the same time very conservative everyone owns guns, hardly any crime... but the guns aren't
the reason, the people that own them are happy, they are simply a tool..like a Chainsaw... could be murderous almost Never is...
Supposedly we have the highest density of Cops in the USA yet MJ is utterly tolerated and I think...every single person here smokes... never did a
survey but i'm pretty sure lol, yet family values remain high, money is woesome but nobody seems to actually care... Despite the Cop stats, I have
never been pulled over once, never harassed and the last Cop I saw walked up to me down town and shook my hand and said Hi I'm _____- and asked me if
I was having a good time... ROFL
So maybe it's just environment?
Some places maybe are just really, really nice and stress free... I might as well be on Xmas Island, People drink, they eat, go for walks in the woods
in the snow... There is zero Light pollution allowed because of an Observatory so no light pollution, no noise pollution, Nature and wildlife are
protected so there are always living things around, the Landlord never cares if my rent is Late
So the Swiss, likewise, yeah they CAN have Guns...
I support Gun rights all the time
Obama doesn't he's from Chicago most of his recent life... Chicago isn't an environment low in stress, there are no Bears lol for the need...
Work Stress, Environment
That's all it is I think... I had a gun in NY I was a menace lol. Here? Who the hell would I shoot at? Every ones happy and thinks like me... I had a
gun in NY I pulled that sucker about 15 different times... people assault you there and yell at you and it's noisy and Hot in the Summer and it can
get smelly and your trapped with no space...
That's not the Native environment of the Northern European Male lol, it's GREAT sometimes, especially for culture, but the stress is ultra high... I
am dangerous with a Gun in that environment... I want to shoot someone once a day lol
You can put the new Gatling Gun in my house and attach it to a chopper and I'd never use it unless someone invaded...
So of course they are safe to have guns...
