Can someone please tell me the downsides to living in Estonia?
I've always wanted to get out of the US but now all the nice countries are cucked and Estonia seems like the next best thing.
Seriously give me reasons why I shouldn't go there because right now I'm too hype and it seems unrealistic
>even minorities are white
>no neocolonial geopolitics
Are Russians really that bad though? We really don't have any in my part of the US so I have no experience with them.
I mean, they're white at least and they mostly don't snackbar
>the shitty weather and depressed people
It's Lietuva, isn't it?
>mongol meme languages
Of course noup. Raver Finns
the weather is like a less sunny version of britain
there are no mountains, only forest and bogs and some villages scattered between them
people are diametrically opposed in temperament and interaction style to americans
you wont have any social guarantees or anyone wiping your ass like in the nordic countries (but being an american, you're probably used to that)
the culture life takes time to adapt to
the "russians" are really not bad at all, the bydlo is universal, there are bydlo russians and bydlo estonians if you know where to go looking for them...
language barrier is not a thing...
actually pretty good beer and tip top tier vodka :DD
After staying under Soviets for so long, you readily gave up its recently obtained sovereignty and independency.
Czech Republic is occupied again. Some like it though.
their fiscal and monetary policies are alright on a macro level
their social policies have basically been every man for himself for the past 25 years (socialists are kept away from government like the plague)
foreign policies are somewhat questionable to an outsider, a large part of what surfaces in the media gives a somewhat skewed picture: that the emphasis is on one topic only: russia
in actuality the foreign policy of late has been directed towards maintaining and developing relations with (and not limited to): u.s.a, germany, switzerland, japan... (notice the lack of certain memetic value things here? like the n-word?) and of course the pri-baltic + finland theme is a recurrent thing
nationalism seems to be the undercurrent in all parties of government...
dunno, too tired to think of more right now :D ask for specifics if you want
one very big issue of course is lack of vision
they have received a lot of criticism (which imho is entirely justified) that they are running the state like a formulaic excel sheet... (ironically, the minister of finance does exactly that)
the buzz-word atm. is "fine-tuning"
whereas it should be: where the fuck do we want to be in 10-50 years and how are we gonna get there
anon... pls contain your ignorance
Lmao. just stop, you fucking dense retard. We have no independent federal bank and our macroeconomic conditions are mostly influenced by our trade countries. Go read a book with your "I sometimes read the news" level understanding of the economy.
our foreign policy towards russia has remained the same for two decades, the fact that it happens to coincide with americans atm. is only beneficial to us so i don't see there being any point of banter here ;)
explain then oh master of economushon (which is a lie btw), what is the central bank and what are taxes and how does it all tie to macroeconomics? i'm waiting with the eagerness of a new student!
so far you have not said a thing about the topic, only called me a retard, twice...
We wanted them here, our defense minister went to Washington DC and said why not move some troops to the flank of NATO that is bordering a genocidal maniacs run by soviet KGB invading other countries because they shit their pants over NATO enlargement as it threatens their authoritarian state control over the brainwashed populace.
Estonia is literally the shitbucket of europe
Its as big as german Denmark with half the population and nothing impressive ever came out of it
Never won a war or start an empire
Sucks ball at sports of any kind
Implied huge jewish population but sucks shit at finance and economics
Hitler literally see the Estonians as subhumans and wants Estonian clay so he can populate the aryans from germany in it.
Any average person will only know Estonia as "that country that was annihilated by the germans in the WWII".
Most are surprised it still exist.
Most people cant even find Estonia on the map and consistently mistook Estonia for either Belarus or Russia.
Its a country that is consistently bullied by countries around it and have absolutely no power to fight back due to its absolute low morale within its army and people.
Estonia is so uninteresting and dull that nobody, even the arabs or the indians(well known for their immigration to western countries) wants to live there
Estonia was supposed to be extinct and the amazement of it continuing its pathetic life like a dying rat is what makes Estonia literally the shithole of europe.
So fucking useless and incompetent you mistook it as a 3rd world country.
>they shit their pants over NATO enlargement
They are about to build another pipeline to NATO member Germany surpassing the butthurt belt to which Estonia belongs.
Yes, you wanted them there. How old are you, kid?
Do you realize that explaining everything on a base level is usually a 6 month semester course? I am just saying that if you have no understanding of how things work, you should not talk about it. Keep your mouth shut. I will just point out a few details: 1) European central bank is the institution in charge of our monetary policies, Estonia has no say in the matter, so there are no "Estonian monetary policies". 2) It's been proven by academic research that changing Estonian "fiscal policy attributes" does next to nothing to the macroeconomic attributes. How -for example- Finland, Sweden and European economy as whole is doing at that time is the main factor that influences our unemp. rate, savings etc. so using the term "Estonian fiscal policy" is also irrelevant.
>Estonia is literally the shitbucket of europe
What is Sweden.
>Its as big as german Denmark with half the population and nothing impressive ever came out of it
All that nature and stuff has to fit somewhere.
>Never won a war or start an empire
We have been in two wars: WW1 which we won and WW2 which we lost.
>Sucks ball at sports of any kind
Not true. We have one of the highest medals per capita in the world...
>Implied huge jewish population but sucks shit at finance and economics
That's just a blatant lie.
>Hitler literally see the Estonians as subhumans and wants Estonian clay so he can populate the aryans from germany in it.
Hitler... really... that's the level or agument here? What Hitler thought? lmao
>Any average person will only know Estonia as "that country that was annihilated by the germans in the WWII".
Average people are not too bright are they?
>Most are surprised it still exist.
So are we to be honest. We truly are a miracle!
>Most people cant even find Estonia on the map and consistently mistook Estonia for either Belarus or Russia.
We can't fix the whole world and its ignorance. We're very sorry.
>Its a country that is consistently bullied by countries around it and have absolutely no power to fight back due to its absolute low morale within its army and people.
Subjectively I think the morale is higher than in say Sweden.
>Estonia is so uninteresting and dull that nobody, even the arabs or the indians(well known for their immigration to western countries) wants to live there
So sad that arabs and Indians don't want to come here. Literally just kill me now.
>Estonia was supposed to be extinct and the amazement of it continuing its pathetic life like a dying rat is what makes Estonia literally the shithole of europe.
Thank you! Your assmad just proves how special and unique we are. Thank you again.
>Russia as a neighbour country
They are like richer Russians. Go to Slovenia instead, or try to find a job in a real country if you have STEM education.
If you call it bullying, you don't know what bullying means.
Why no good pay in NATO and EU as in Estonia?
They would end up in Switzerland (no NATO, no EU) if the Swiss would let them.
Nobody is going either to Portugal and Spain or Baltic States. What a irony!
>Like Russians can freely move to Kazakhstan and Belarus
The Swiss do let us in, actually. The more you know. There's a thing called EFTA.
>95% of mankind has never heard of Estonia
how is that a downside?
>I personally don't like them,
funny, i don't feel a lot different living in estonia knowing some german doesn't like estonians
> they are generally very right-wing people.
that's true, but arguably that's a good thing (unless you happen to be one of those anti-fa chimpanzees)
