Why should we not aspire to become the most moral people of Europe? watch

    • Thread Starter

    (Original post by Zorgotron)
    OP has an understandable concern, but it is questionable whether any change can come from europeans themselves. Europe has completely been disengaged from its religious roots and has lost its inner strength - strength, which is derived from values that people are willing to die for.

    Many people have become complacent and soft while lacking any sort of principles to live by. They consider their existence not as something that they need to earn or even be willing to defend - rather it's a right that must be provided for them by someone (mostly the government).

    A self-centered and self-indulgent convenient lifestyle is not a strong foundation for vibrant civilization.
    Greece is okay, some of the traditional values remain outside the urban areas. Same is true throughout the Med. Its the northern parts of Europe tainted by feminism and all the other associated sloppiness that are the concern.
