superciliousness in Norway

Superciliousness in Norway. “They crap in our forest,” an angry man yelled, Roma people had pitched tents near the forest where people of this tolerant nation go skiing in winters. They came here to find work but was meet with scorn and mistrust, they came in hope of getting a part of our largesse; the rich do not know this word. When people who used to be poor suddenly see they are better off than other countries, the first reaction is pride and an unbecoming arrogance, like it was their cleverness that brought oil up from the bottom of the sea… Now instead of being humble having had such luck they become reactionaries giving advice to less fortunate countries. “They crap in our forest”, nourishing an imbecilic nation that due to undeserved richness has lost contact with reality and human kindheartedness.

All those gypsy songs were so romantic when I was a kid. Not so.
