Switzerland, the independent country

by Nozomi U.
(Tokyo, Japan)



As you know, Switzerland has declared permanent neutrality. I knew that when I was a junior high school student. I seem to have misunderstood, however, for what they declared this position. Not just they don’t want to fight and hurt.

Nobody can just enjoy their life that they don’t have any connection with war. They retain their own military power tightly, declare that everyone is a soldier, and has a conscription system. So Switzerland prepares strongly.

In addition, Switzerland didn’t join the EU like many countries in Europe did. In the national vote that asked for affiliation with EU, but the opposition was in the majority.

The domestic price and wage level are high, also the savings is on a Japanese level. I mean they can’t find an advantage of affiliation.

Switzerland has retained their country to protect their own power without keeping a dependence on the world, I think. Switzerland is a good example for us all to follow.
