Calling all Europeans?
If any of you kindly has the time, could you listen to this and then share your thoughts and tell me if the Author is accurate on it's depiction of Europe? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wwq3Q9ODVI&NR=1 It's basically about european values and how they are different from American values and what the author thinks we can learn from Europe. I agree with much of what he says. I lived in europe in the early 90's but I'm certainly no expert. I saw some of what he descrives but missed the depths of it. Some European perspective would be helpful. Doesn't have to be right now but come back to it when you can. You might find it interesting as well. Thank you so much.
