Provocations of Human Nature Expose Sensitivities to Inhumanities Causes by Clashes Between Moral and Immoral Practices in Life

Reader comment on item: Denmark Leads the West to Immigration Sanity

What is civilization if not the advancement of establishing a social order in which the variegated members of various societies seek to find that balance of pursuing life in which all participants are accomodated without causing undue hardships when things sometimes do not happen according to common perceptions of how they should go. Ahh; but therein lays the conundrum; whose perceptions of life are the common ones?
Human nature, historically battered for not having common perceptions, instead is littered with relics of societies of extreme prejudices towards competing goals of gaining superiority for the sake of ambitions of empire and feudal mastery as is found throughout both the occidental and oriental cultures; and even in subcultures that have left evidences of the sometimes extreme brutalities of an immoral approach to life.
Scandinavians are not immune to these perceptions and the Dansk are merely one example, the modern variations of Danish rule from the times of empires going back to the clashes with the English/Saxon/Normans; that the Danish have their own history of establishing what they believed was their undeniable portions of international commerce and trade. That exposure made them as vulnerable to the modern explosion of refugees from faraway lands of extreme attitudes to even indigent residencies, but some of them bringing with them the moral (includig variations of religion) and sometimes immoral customs of which they are accustomed.
Denamrk is only one example: Scandinavia is merely one social laboratory: the world has become one big hairy oyster hatchery and everyone is seeking where the best oysters are found: everyone wants that pearl of life.
