Why are most British people so socially cold?
#27
I will risk an observation here. My country is a popular destination for british expats, and because of this I do know, or have been in classes with, the women who are children of british expats. What I am observing is that alot of these children-of have issues of anger and depression, and express alot of this anger and frustration at their *mothers*, who they view as cold and unsupportive. They feel suppressed, unvalidated, unloved.

I think perhaps the hard times of the war has alot to do with that coldness. Loss was ever-present and you had to be able to carry on. How many generations does it take for the effects of this evil to dissipate?
Don't-know mind is not the same as so-what brain.
