Austrians and Germans (who are basically Bavarians so, Germans) showed multiple times in course of history a kind of a dark side of their genetics. I am from the north of Romania , from Bukovina which was part of the old principalty of Moldova and has beeb raptured by Austria in an agreement with Ottoman Empire. in 1774 - 1775. At the end of WW1 in the town of Suceava , former capital of medieval Moldova any Austrian police officcer could hang Romanians just by assuming they want the unification with Romania. Is known also, Austrians have an imperial mentality because of their former empire ( similar to English in this matter), gave a big but well hidden corruption and are more arrogant than Germans. I think God punished them to remain a small nation (8 million people today) for wanting to start WW1 at any cost if their pride wasn`t avenged because of the murder of Franz Ferdinand and for many antihumanitary and even atrocities committed on subjugated peoples in course of time.
I have a similar view of Austrians, especially in Vienna and Lower-Austria. You can see them promenading up and down Der Graben in vaguely traditional clothes pretending that they actually know something about the Operas they pay through the nose to see. Meh!
I think the mountain peoples in Tirol and Vorarlberg are somewhat different as they never actually ran the empire and were dirt poor peasants until the tourist money came in the 20th century. I wonder how they ended up in the same country as the Viennese.
These posts remind me of the Duncan MacPherson incident. In 1989, a hockey player disappeared while snowboarding at a Tyrol resort. In 2003, his mangled body was discovered in the middle of the run. It was concluded by a private investigator that he was injured while falling and then was ran over by a snow groomer. The resort staff promptly buried his body on the spot. The authorities just called it case closed and no charges were ever filed. So I can see what you guys are talking about.
