Still, this is your public realm. You are entitled to take anything in picture so long as you don't invade their private space.

Is it true that the Danes are the happiest people in the world? I kinda heard of this recently, cause the Fr prez was on a state visit in your country.
I think he enjoyed it a lot.

^I was taking pictures of the habour from a bridge when they passed under it and saw me talking pictures in another direction, they started waving ( as is kinda the culture from boats in the habour to people ashore ) so I waved back and took a photo.. not my typical photo but a fun moment..

As for happiness Denmark has been topping many happiness and contentment charts for many years.. as happiness is subjective the charts doesn’t carry much value, but life here is financially and physically secure, leaving people to live their lives struggle free doing what they want to do,..
There’s also a culture of all is needed here, so all occupations are respected from garbagemen to lawyers so people tend to follow their dreams, not social pressure from parents or soceity..

When you don’t have much to worry about and have money and time to do what you like people generally become happy

Yeah, this is great. Ah, you guys are lucky, no doubt.
Although I don't believe in so called luck. There's no such thing as what they call "chance" in my language. It's only superstition.
But your people as a whole is just definitely well-mannered in general.
That's precious.

it all looks so clean and cool, a feast for the eyes during a suffocatingly long, hot and humid summer in the central u.s.

this is a good example of what nice things you can have when you dont have to give a care in the world about your own self defense when uncle sam has your back. thankfully for the usa taxpayer that will be changing.

oh man, where to start...

First of all if you calculate the defense spendings on equal footing you will find a very similar spending across virtually all NATO countries..

That the US includes pensions and various educational services that are covered in other forms in other countries doesn't mean it spends more - just that it does it best to inflate it's numbers.. we could do the same with same results, we just happens to be covering such services for our citizens outside the military spendings.. not to mention the investment in local companies or running expenses of various facilities that we also don't add to the list..

As for not caring about our self defense I don't think that is fair - first of all we are one of the very few nations left that keeps a conscription service requiring young men ( and accepts voluntary women ) to undergo military training and get specialized in a branch and function - I spend a year as a teen undergoing infantry training - this alone means we have a pool of over 2 million trained men to pull from who are required by law to defend the nation.. just as you will find bunkers all around our forests with weaponry in case of an invasion attempt..

Further more as your article mentions we have been one of the largest contributers to the US's conflicts despite our small population - heck I did two tours in Iraq to support you guys!

You will also find Denmark to be one of the nations who often chose to buy US gear to support you guys despite better and cheaper options from our neighbouring nations.. ( planes, rifles etc ) no to mention we gladly provide facilities to you guys such as our Thule base on Greenland..

So all in all if you really feel you are being cheated in the political climate the US has created, then spend a little looking into the details rather than right-wing headlines..


As for our nation and society that comes down to how we tax and how we spend the taxes - at the end of the day a democratic nation is as it's citizens wants it to be!
