The number of Americans that fought to free the Dutch is irrelevant to the argument of whether the Dutch are more or less free than Americans. *Bear in mind, also, that freedom is not a yes/no proposition, but a continuum with a lot of grey area.Originally Posted by [b
Though I have little knowledge of Dutch laws and society, I agree with JustLikeAPill in that I'm not really 'a big fan of America' anymore. *The American government, over time, reflects the will of the people, and seems to be moving more and more towards a socialist redistribution of wealth and a moral agenda that values the legislation of a subjective ethics over the freedom of the people. *Though this country may have been founded on the idea of freedom, today there are indeed other countries that respect the personal and economic freedom of their citizens more than our own.
