I think I almost find the reason why we people of the old country had to come here and have to put up with this hard life (not always). Why do you think people still work their way hard to get around the globe to have a better life here in a country which almost have nothing?One reason, I think, is people of that side of the globe, where I came from, mostly believe or even if don't believe, pretend that they know everything. That wisdom, which actually doesn't exist, is the cause of these all problems they have to hack with on a daily basis. Here, if someone doesn't understand something or doesn't know it, would simply say that s/he doesn't. Some people even use terms like grunt, idiot and so on about themselves. That actually comes from their honesty, an attribute in Western culture. Who do you really know that consider him/her an idiot over there? Everyone's Einstein! Look at all those universities grow on daily basis in every village and county! Everyone is a degree holder! I wonder who has the desire to do the labour job! I once for this company for almost a year and I remember there were as many as 10 engineers in the Holder Shop while I'm sure that just 5 high school graduate where able to run the entire shop.
What I want to conclude is almost 90% of the Canadians are grunts and have no wisdom and the good thing is they never claim anything more than what they really are. And the only 10% left are cleaver enough to be able to run this country beautifully. At the same time in the old country 90% of the population think they're clever and want to do big jobs with big money. The people follow the rules of a religion mixed up with cultural myths and superstitious and those won't take them anywhere better what they're now. They deserve that. The regime has nothing to do with that. That's what the people has been prepared for.
