Suprize surprise on Morality
I came to Nederland thinking the country is immoral and "rotten"
What a sober awakening to discover it is not so
People are well dressed and behave so polite and modestly
In talks to local men across the mean income level it is noteworthy to hear their views to fairness and equality
Especially the Moslems and other immigrant groups
It is a society with very little violence and tolerance for violence
I felt it on myself at the Rugby match in Amsterdam while watching Sharks/Wp game-- in guy took our fresh Beers from Bar counter . I just stopped the guy and told him hey hey pasop!!
You know I am not a violent man and in seconds the manager was on me to behave and to quiet down or face expulsion
Even the guy who tried to steal our beers was wrong - such a small incident in SA is not worth mentioning
That is just to show how passive they are
Nederlanders were never regarded as good soldiers - good sailors yes
When I look in daily newspapers there are no naked pictures of woman and very bad journalism
So "freedom to decide for yourself" the credo of Holland constitution, did get the results of a harmonious society
