Are Czech, Slovenian, and Slovakian girls feminine and nice? Or are they like AW and Swedish women?

From what I heard Hungarian and Bulgarian girls are very feminine and nice, does anyone know what they're . Just like the girls from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Romania.

I'm not too sure about girls from the Czech Republic. It's close to Germany and Sweden, and I heard the porn industry is big in the Czech Republic which means the girls might be sleeping with as many men as girls do here in America.

I would simply get a girlfriend from a poor country but live in one of the higher standard countries (i.e.: Switzerland, Luxembourg)

Yeah if feasible, moving the woman to your home / higher standard countries could be a good option. If this happens I think you need to be very careful with the types of western women that they mix with as they will do you no favours.

A bit misleading to link parameters such as per capita consumption of goods and services and GDP output, to something as subjective and elusive as living standards. If my living standard is defined by living within my own means, without spending streams of revolving credit money on crap I rarely use and never needed in the first place, eat quality food and spend plenty of time with my family and friends, Italy or Greece may easily jump from midpoint and climb a lot higher than Switzerland, Germany and even the UK.

At some point, I hope, we'll realise how fundamentally obsolete a system of macroeconomic parameters solely based on production and consumption is.

I agree. Credit is not prosperity and consumption is finite. America's paradigm can't exist without increasing consumption. To continue the American economic fallacies they have the Federal Reserve artificially induce inflation to give an illusion that consumption is increasing. In the future the dollar will lose the World Reserve status and will no longer dominate international trade. When that happens America will no longer dominate international affairs or be able to manipulate the world. Without being able to dominate international affairs or export it's culture, feminism will slow.

Think of feminism as a DoS attack. It can only gain strength the more feminists have a voice and a microphone to shout. America supports the feminists the most and America exports it's culture. In a DoS attack it relies on a huge number of attacks to flood a system and destroy all opposing views;

Feminists want to first destroy tradition and the warm feminine spirit. The American propaganda machine disseminates feminism across the world. The collapse of America=sending feminists to the the stone age, stopping feminists in their tracks, and letting the traditional cultures regain the dominant voice in the world. There is no hope to reverse the trend and fix the problems, the only way things like feminism culture stops is when the dominant culture that disperses it falls.

What you call feminism is just the re-engineering of market economy, and the media system that serve it, to exploit the female psyche for the maximum benefit of the markets. Women can be more easily manipulated into extracting as much assets as possible from a divorce, and that benefits their consumerist lifestyle and divorce lawyers (= big business). Women like to be said they are "empowered" and, due to declining education and moral standards, they almost always interpret that as "empowered consumers".

The industry is always finding new markets to empower with an imagery of beauty, success in competing with peers, well being, entitlement, etc. The exploitation of these markets happens without any regard whatsoever to moral and ethical standards. Think of the huge industry targeting the tweens and sometimes children as young as 5. From pole dancing classes to sexy clothing, to make up sets, to the all-American farce of child pageants. I once used to believe that relentless beating children into the shape of fully formed consumers was a crafty business openly in conflict with an otherwise sane parenting. No, I have to retreat: dads and moms are often the main drivers behind those trends. They're the ones who give their daughters Facebook and chat-enabled smartphones as soon as they turn 8, or show them the joys of revealing clothes as they drag them along in their shopping sprees.

What you call feminism is the final victory of the market economy, and the media system that serve it, against any remaining shroud of critical thinking and moral sense, and this applies to both boys and girls, I'm afraid. The same market economy couldn't care less if "empowered" young women have 2 or 20 sex partners a month, as long as their consumption patterns continue unabated, or increase: buy clothes to look sexy, buy (or get bought) booze to feel frisky and (hopefully) buy those condoms, etc.

We're in terminal stage...
