    Likes: Pretty much everything

    Dislike: being near Asia, mass immigration and multiculturalism
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    I am a native Canadian, but for various reasons my wife and I reside in the Czech Republic. However, we do not plan to settle in the country permanently, and shall return to Canada when circumstances permit. Having lived here for almost two years now, I have acquired my share of foibles and indeed fondnesses for the Czech people and their country. But my dislikes are as follows: I have observed an absence of a basic moral understanding and respect for rules and laws when an authority is not keeping check to ensure that one is upholding them. One may say this is true of most Slavic countries, and I am not in a position to dismiss the suggestion. However, the Czech Republic is an uncommon aberration for the post-communist countries in the sense that there is little visible patriotism in the majority of the population. Perhaps this is an observation unique to me, and others would disagree. There are those here who are beginning to claim that Czechs are simply incapable of taking control and the country can only function when there is someone else at the reins. This condition may originate in Vaclav Havel and his position as a puppet president (voted in 1989 by communist mafia apparatchiks) to refrain from punishing the communist ruling class and instead facilitate them in the mere changing of clothes and re-framing of themselves as democrats. As regards the culture question: the Czech people seem to show greater enthusiasm in mimicking certain culture trends from foreign countries than in the embracing and self-promotion of native traditions. Another difference in this country to its Slavic friends is that more than eighty five percent of the population is without religion of any kind. I have little opinion on this either way, but it speaks of a basic lack of cultural cohesiveness and direction which affects secular ares of life here too; such as, as was mentioned, the moral weakness and absence of a shared identity in which to feel pride that the country suffers from.

    Of course I love my country but only the country not the current political state in Germany.

    Positive aspects:

    - Education system
    - Healthcare system
    - German scientists and their technological achievments
    - German architecture
    - A beautiful countryside
    - Character traits like honour, loyalty, diligence, punctuality, consciousness
    - German sportsmen and sportswomen (Past/Present)
    - German cuisine

    Negative aspects:

    - Too many foreigners
    - Re-education and brainwashing of the German people since 1945
    - Guilt culture (I hate it!)
    - Holocaust religion (Live now and not in the past!)
    - Financial help for other states which aren't able to be economical (Greece, what a shame for Europe)
    - Paying for the whole world
    - Abuse of the social system through social parasites
    - Germany serves foreign interests (German-American relationship)
    - Arms deals with Third World states (German Panzers for Saudi-Arabia)

    Of course Germany is a rich country where you can live very well but we are not the welfare agency of the world.

    What I like in Switzerland is:

    • The Alps, forests, lakes, rivers and glaciers forming breathtaking landscapes
    • The fact we are not in the EU
    • Delicious chocolate, hmmm!
    • High income level which is an advantage when you go aboard
    • Low unemployment
    • Direct democracy system and still a "community" spirit in some areas of the country
    • Some conservative and "I take care of my own home" mentality
    • Clean and respectful Swiss people in the public space
    • Good quality food and products
    • Good education level


    Dislike:

    • Small territory
    • HUGE immigration level from everywhere
    • High level of urbanization, there is nowhere where you can't find some human presence
    • Everything is expensive and it's nearly impossible to buy a house for average people
    • Ugly and monstrous money machine ski resorts in the mountains
    • Rich foreigners (mostly Arabs) behaving like Kings just because they are in Switzerland
    • 1.24 birth rate among Swiss women
    • Geneva
