  •  Very similar to the south and the north in the US (4+ / 0-)

    There are serious differences, the most serious being language. But there are also many similarities. If you look at the US from a historical point of view, the Indian tribes fought each other. Then along came the Europeans. Serfs in Europe were very similar to indentured servants here.

    All countries are different and yet there are vast similarities also. I have traveled to Australia, Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and other countries. Australia I found more similar to the US than European countries. Hawaii is more different than other states than Britain is. I have never been to Alaska.

    I don't know how one measures such things.

    Practice tolerance, kindness and charity.
