    Most of these differences would apply to
    almost any western europe country versus
    any country in development such as china or
    most african countries or south american continent.

    This also could apply between germany and Italy as you move southern.

    On a lot of aspects, we (western europeans lost our souls…

    Can someone please explain me what does the last inpographic mean? It’s like parents and granparents have a dispute about who cares about the child or what?
