Kunstler goes off on American sloth and Euro banking, hitting bullseyes with a very broad stroke. I can only imagine what he’d write if he went to a typical American amusement park like Kennywood, seen here.
They were Euro teenagers. They were distinct from American teens. The Euro-teens acted like civilized people with what can only be called a sense of decorum. They were not costumed like clowns, criminals, sports stars, or zombies. Every day is not Halloween for them. Being a person seemed enough for them, as though the human condition were an honorable state-of-being. There were no obese Euro-teens. They were not stuffing their faces with pizza, French fries, and cinnabons.
