AMSTERDAM CORE QUALITIES

From spring to winter Amsterdam and other historic Dutch towns offer a creative, energetic and vibrant civic culture full of life. Dutch towns present a well-ordered, neat society marked by historic architecture, a fine set of canals and streets and these core qualities:
Civic virtue, Spirit of Enterprise, Freedom of Thought and Creativity.

Civic virtue: the local traders and businessmen forming their own power base and becoming more powerful than the old nobility.

Spirit of Enterprise: An attitude of outward looking, sailing the seven seas of the world looking for trade, profit and spheres of influence.

Freedom of Thought: Erasmus on the high worth of every individual man. Coornhert writing law texts on how to be decent to prisoners. Grotius inventing international Sea law: „make peace, not war“, Spinoza jump-starting modern individualism and freedom of thought, opening the first door to the Age of Enlightenment.

Creativity: A country brimming with art, industrial design, out-of-the-box attitudes, a sense of humor and lateral thinking. Provo, hippies, youth culture and anti-authoritarian attitude starting out as fringe movements, and their lifestyle becoming mainstream.
