Older People and Family

Any one can think from the first look that you rarely meet kids and older people. Where these two groups disappeared in Denmark streets?
If we look to the advanced educational system in Denmark, we will relies that the system came with lots benefits, but that doesn't mean its perfect, the educational system produced new challenges for the Danish society. One of the most big challenges is separating the older people from the society, and this makes them angry and not satisfied, government and intellectuals are unable to solve these problem till now. The problem is Danish don’t have time to spend with family, that's why we can divide the Danish society into three parts from my opinion (students–workers–retired).
Kids are under students part, and they are in the nursery almost all day time until 5pm, that’s why we cannot see them in the streets or even walking with their parents, at this point I would like to mention that there is different concept of nursery in Denmark than other countries, nursery for Danish was the way to insure opportunity for mothers that they want to work and have a job out of her house.
Workers are from graduated to retired age , the retired people and older people don’t have what they expected from the society and they are separated from it, and all what they have is these old age home that created by the government, and the monthly amount of money to insure basic needs of living. The country omitted their feelings and their joining them to the society in a way or another. The Old Danish man became that insane that has to be separated from society and nobody need him.

Your observations are very correct. I have lived in Denmark for 33 years.

First, every country, including Denmark is full of contradictions.

I find, over the years, that Denmark is emotionally cold. Nevertheless, Danes express love for their children by fetching them as early as possible from nursery. Countries with longer working hours, like Asia, England and the US, both envy and admire this. They think it wonderful that Danes CAN leave work at 15.30 and admirable that they WANT to leave work at 15.30.

On the other hand, it is quite common for younger Danish mothers--who themselves have been raised in nurseries and have never experienced a childhood at home with their own mother-- complain that they are bored and wish they could return to work--before the 6 months minimum maternity leave is up!

Other contradictions: Danes are notorious for their envy and small mindedness (janteloven). Excellence is despised and criticised not admired.

Nevertheless, Denmark ALSO used to be a very gentle, trusting open place. Danes rescued Jewish citizens from the Nazis in WWII. Danes welcomed American black jazz musicians with open arms in the 1950s and 1960s-- when those same musicians fled from a USA and especially a southern USA, which discriminated openly against them.
Many of the older Danish welfare programs (public housing, free schools, etc.) were both generous, humane and showed great trust of their own citizens.

Sadly, all of this has largely disappeared over the past 15 years. Right now, Denmark is becoming increasingly inhumane cold and unfair. Best comparison is to the communist East Block before 1989.

Nevertheless, there is some small hope for the future. Danes are now waking up to the unpleasant realization that the government is not only mistreating foreigners or the poor and marginalized--it now consists of a tiny, arrogant,callous and power-hungry elite which is now mistreating everybody--including Danes themselves. They are starting to protest, and in the process may just possibly rediscover their good qualities of modesty, intelligence, fairness and generosity.
