Austria. The Center

After my return to Austria, I notice the following: People in the east of the world (Europe) believe in objectivity and submit to it. Hence the collective tendency towards strong systems of security.

People in the west of the world (Europe) believe in subjectivity and enforce it. Hence the individual tendency towards strong systems of freedom.

The people in the center of Europe struggle to combine the two. In the north (Germany) you do this with your brain (machines and discussions), in the south (Italy) you do it with your heart (culture and food).

In the center of the center (Austria) everything is connected. You think with your heart, feel with your brain and discuss about food.
