Thats the part that that belies the reason. The Dutch were always so docile that they seemed controlled, I would always get a creepy pod people/automaton feeling when visiting. The entirety of the collective conciousness seemed bent towards sending feelings of goodwill to some nameless mental representation of a homeless person and devising ways to come up with funds to leave community owned objects lieing about for his benefit. A whole society of stined hippies minus the retarded dancing.
I find it hard to believe that they have actually changed that much so what, if anything, has changed? What is the truth of the reason for the surveillance?
