>>53826739 Catholic faith is now first religion in your country, not protestant. ofc atheism is still #1 in your country. But in country of Jan Hus, where protestant heresy started, catholic faith finally won.
>>53827153 we are basically Mexico of Europe, both are economies run on automobile factories well at least in Czechia we have one domestic car brand, while in Slovakia they have only foreign ones In Slovakia they produce also goat cheese
>>53826848 slovakia has a very healthy economy though they actually produce stuff, without getting into giant debts or anything and the country would have to be well decentralized, so there'd be neither need nor the possibility for richer czechia to fund poorer slovakia. you'd just have a bigger common market which would make both countries benefit economically >inb4 but they're both in the eu already, which has a common market it's not exactly the same thing
>>53827153 they're like the biggest producers of cars per capita iirc sure, it's mostly german car brands, but the slovak government taxes them and the slovaks get paid for working there, so that's more than a solid industry sector for a country of that size
>>53827509 So something like what Spain has where the federal government just guarantees basic protections like military healthcare etc and devolves much of its power to the local departments/provinces?
>>53827509 >healthy economy That's just one point of view. The fact is, our countries turned into being just a mechanical production plants with very little own research and inventions. And it seems there is no turning back in the near future. The new emerging jobs are always some manual low paid shit, so low paid that we have to import foreign gastarbeiters from Ukraine and other eastern countries. And then they say we have low unemployment, lol. Yeah, we have low unemployment, free jobs, but so shitty wage that it's not even worth it. That's not a healthy economy if you ask me.
>>53827625 if that's what spain does, then yes, sure and that's the best system imo leaving like 80% of the tax money in the area where it was collected hell, i'd even decentralize healthcare and the school system, etc. it is quite fair for a rich municipality that produces more revenue to have better public facilities imo. like 20% of the taxes would go to the capital and this should be used to fund the army, foreign politics and big projects of national interests, and that's it. but no more than 20%
>>53827674 16th and 17th century, yes...well, kind of. According to some historians we were never full shit protestant, it was more like many different churches and the peasants still kept their catholic customs. Then the 30 year war happened and habsburg recatholization and ever since we are catholic. Czechs actually used to be very catholic and religious, but somehow this totally vanished during communism. People were probably just fed up with all that bullshit. And the dying off of the old religious generation still continues. If you spot a young religious person in here then he or she is usually kind of strange fedora autist (not all of them of course)
>>53827541 Here people used to be very catholic, until the 1960s. Especially Flanders was extremely catholic, while all the "blacksocks" (protestants) fled north a couple of centuries ago (forming what is now known in NL as the Bible Belt).
Catholicism is dead now, only on Christmas Eve people go to church out of tradition.
Protestants however are less likely to become atheists, as they're all fundamentalist. In NL the protestants tend to apply the Bible literally and tend to love the Old Testament.

Story started that same in poland but you choosen different path. Can you explain why you are not religious like poland?
>>53828583 I'd smack their faces with piles of academic data and references ;-)
>>53828587 Yeah those days too. All Saint's Day (1 nov) is a fixed day for visiting the cemetery, next to that it's up to people themselves, although usually on the birthday and the day-of-death of the loved one they visit the cemetery or (becoming less common) a remembrance mass is held.
The pedo scandals killed the faith. Before the 1990s mass attendance was low but people blamed modern life, having no time anymore, but still called themselves catholic or christian.
When people realised the rumors of pedophilia in the Church were not only true but happened and still happen on a massive scale, it caused a massive abandoning of their catholic faith.
A couple of decades ago people would never have thought anything bad about leaving your kids in the care of a priest (sunday school, faith-based camping holidays, catholic schools with board and lodging, ...); in fact the priest was seen as someone who loved children following the example of Jesus. When I read comic books or youth magazines from the 1950s that is pretty clear.
Our local deacon was a very popular figure with a high standing amongst the locals for decades, until recently it became known that he raped his own nephew.
Catholicism has become a synonym for child abuse and people feel betrayed.
