Inventing a new words (Germans) is quite alright - although they do adapt when convenient - but what they didn't do was to criminalize use of a foreign (read that English) word. That delight is found only in French speaking locals (Frogland, itself and Quebec).
They don't criminalize, and need not to; The French are more cultures than French. And Germans hardly adapt. My favourite is "gabelstaplerfahrer". You need a "gabelstaplerfahrer führerschein" to do so.

By then the Dutch had their golden era. Think 1600'ds.

Mayhaps I the criminal, as I see most deads from being religious. And all those, would help their neighbour, regardless of religion, because they identify as a tribe.

The protestant and catholic Dutch hid their neighbour Jews (or acquintances), feeling a tribe during WW2.

People in small doses are benevolent, welcoming, sharing. Countries full of them are rules by idiot ideas of being superiour, or being attacked by "families", or having taking sh*t away. It's madness of masses, but no indidual holds those values if you meet them. I had Arab diners, but did not meet a jew here yet. Met Chinese. Met Scandinavians. Met a Dutch person living in the Carribean. Different in customs, yes, but not in wants.

We are being played; always have been. Ever since the Pax Romana.
