    north and south holland were and naybe still are the most important provinces, in the olden days the most important cities are the capital (Amsterdam) the city where the government is seated (Den Haag) and later the harbour of Rotterdam became more signifficant, the importance, surely in the past was overwhelming. in 15 th century we sailed the world on irder to make some money. Theres journeys were full of threats; no fresh veggies or fruits dried kinda bread and meat that was salted in order to preserve it, these journeyes took half a year a whole year sometimes longer, so you understand that not many men were eager to take a job aboard a ship. Only the ones that had never learned a craft had not much choice even those were not eager too. Some people made it their job to recrute outside of bars and cafes to see drunken guys coming out lost all their money so easy targets to persuade to sign a contract for a journey, most were ignorant, illiterate youngsters. When they came in other countries they told the natives, when asked, their from Holland they really did not know any better than the province where they came from. This created this stubborn misunderstanding

    The first windmills in The Netherlands were not built in 1850! The Dutch have invented windmills and started building and using them since the 16th century. For pumping out the water and keep pumping it out because it is a non stop operation. Also for sawing wood. The Dutch could build ships many times faster (and better) than any other nation in the world. Because of windmills.

    Pretty accurate. One of the best I've seen. But for a better picture you should get in touch with Dutch people more. We are not easily offended about anything but we also say what we think so we might offend others with our directness. We are very tolerant and open minded but we do have our own culture being tolerant and open minded just a part of it. Our second language is English, but we usually speak mor languages but not Fries. More than 50% of our universities teach in English. It's weird. Amsterdam is the capitol but actually it does not represent The Netherlands at all. It's just a leftist run city full of immigrants and it's a real challenge to find an original Amsterdam born white person there. Foreigners like Amsterdam way better than we do.

    Ik ben trots om een Nederlander ze zijn, en ook ik ben bereid te sterven voor die vrijheid.
    DUTCH MOVIE: Michiel de Ruyter - Johan de Witt speech
    me u een vraag stellen. We leven in een land van kooplui. we varen met
    een vloot van 20.000 schepen over de wereldzeeën, en in de handel werken
    we allemaal samen. Om een goede prijs te bedingen om elkaar te helpen
    in nood. wat denkt u? heeft dat gewerkt of niet? ik zie dat sommige
    afgevaardigde nauwelijks meer in de banken passen. En ik vraag het u.
    als u in de oost of west zaken doet doet u dat als prinsgezinde of
    En waarom denkt u dat de Engelse onze aanvoertjes
    willen blokkeren? en onze handel proberen stil te leggen? Is dat omdat u
    Prinsgezind bent of Staatsgezind bent, nee. De Engelse willen oorlog
    met ons voeren, omdat wij Nederlanders zijn. Vrije Nederlanders. Want in
    de ogen van de grote koning is ons landje te rijk, te succesvol en te
    vrij, want we zijn ook nog eens een republiek. (waar in het ieder vrij
    staat om te leven zoals m'n wil). (Het is een land waarin we zelf
    bepalen hoe we God aanbidden). (Waarin geen enkele leider belangrijker
    is dan het land zelf). de Engelse gunnen ons die vrijheid niet, ze
    worden bang van die vrijheid, omdat wij bereid zijn te sterven voor die
    vrijheid!!!. Omdat wij die vrijheid met ons eigen bloed hebben betaald,
    Daarom. En ik vraag het u, heeft niet ieder van u een familielid
    verloren tegen de Spanjaarden of de Engelse? en was dat staatsgezind
    bloed of prinsgezind bloed? NEE. (Dat was Nederlands bloed), (Dat is ons
    bloed). (Dit is ons land). Het is een land dat we zelf om het water
    hebben veroverd, een land waar we ons geluk zelf verdienen door de
    handen uit de mouw te steken, in de dorpen en de steden, havens en op
    het land. We kunnen onze vrijheid alleen beschermen als we ook willen
    vechten voor die van een ander. DAT!!!, DAT IS DE BAND DIE DE 7 PIJLEN
    Let me pose you a question. We're a nation
    of merchants. we sail the seas of the world with 20'000 ships, in trade
    we work together. to get better prices and to help each othger. and what
    do you think? Does it work or not? It does, some members became so
    successful thay hardly fit in the benches. And i ask you. When you do
    business in the East or the West, do you do so as Origists or as
    Republicans. And why do you think the English want to block our
    supplies? and try to stop our trade? Is that because you are
    Prince-minded or State-minded, no. The English want to make war with us
    because we are Dutch. Free Dutch people. For in the eyes of the great
    king our country is too rich, too successful and too free, because we
    are also a republic. (where in everyone is free to live as my will). (It
    is a country in which we determine how we worship God). (Where no
    leader is more important than the country itself). the English do not
    give us that freedom, they become afraid of that freedom, because we are
    willing to die for that freedom !!! Because we have paid that freedom
    with our own blood, Therefore. And I ask you, has not every one of you
    lost a family member against the Spaniards or the English? and was that
    state-like blood or princely blood? NO. (That was Dutch blood), (That's
    our blood). (This is our country). It is a country that we ourselves
    have conquered the water, a country where we earn our own fortune by
    working our way, in the villages and the cities, ports and on land. We
    can only protect our freedom if we also want to fight for someone
