Discussion in 'Central & Eastern Europe' started by Luciaviolin, Nov 1, 2005.
well, I met such people - Turks who got German citizenship :lol:
I don't want to start again, but... we, in Argentina, are tought that Mexico is in CENTRAL AMERICA, nor South, nor North... So... BEEEEP, you're wrong.
For North Americans, Central America is a region, not a continent, and that region forms part of the continent of North America. So...BEEEEP, you're wrong.
Ooooh! I just told a bonairense they were wrong!! :shock: :lol: :wink:
Oh, ok, I see... I guess I can't say anything to that. We have different theory :roll: .
Yes, and you are in troubles.... muhehe :twisted:
For me a European is a white non-practicing Christian, very sceptical about religions, economic theories, US politics, worried about the Muslim masse immigration, worried about delocalization of our industries in non-European countries, worried about free trade, pleased to be what we are, and proud of the immense diversity of European cultures.
My rusults in Qcumber's Test of Europeanship:
non-practicing Christian (no Christian at all)
sceptical about religions
sceptical about economic theories
sceptical about US politics (at least in comparison with the French or German one)
worried about the Muslim masse immigration
worried about delocalization of our industries in non-European countries (I'm not worried about results of European laziness, I'm worried about European laziness)
worried about free trade
pleased to be what we are
and proud of the immense diversity of European cultures. (no reason to be proud but I accept it as fact)
:roll: :roll: So, am I European :?: :?:
Of course every European has their own view on being a European. I was just giving mine.
Do you mean you'd prefer a unified European culture: everywhere the same architecture, the same music, the same customs, the same cuisine?
No, I like diverse Europe but I see no reason to be proud - we can't claim credits for it.
Well, I suppose that, maybe, if I'm tolerant to diversity, then I help to support it and therefore I can claim little bit of pride for it

Can you elaborate a little more Wer?
Wissi, I'm not sure... simply, the phrase "proud of the immense diversity of..." sounds self-important to me 8). Maybe it's only some obscure kind of language barrier (the real meaning of "proud") :wink:.
Just a question Wer. Where do you come from? What are your origins?
I'm Czech settled for the whole of life (excluding four years in Slovakia and studies in Prague) in Eastern Bohemia, enough?
Thank you, Wer.
