This article ignores such things as the Dutch Master painters, the Dutch exploration of the Americas, and the Tulipmania. In fact the article serves only to set up the very biased last paragraph.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tpleighton (talk)

"Fiesten op Dijk"? What do you mean, fiesten is not a Dutch word as far as I know. Maybe you meant "fietsen" or "feesten"?
The line about the "gay gang" is incorrect. I am Dutch and have followed the issue closely. The word "gay gang" has not been in the Dutch press (not even in conservative and Christian papers). In fact one gay couple and a homosexual friend are suspected of deliberately infecting other homosexual men with HIV. In addition, there has been no discussion in the Dutch media, nor in the Dutch Parliament or local councils, about Holland's liberal sex and drugs culture as a result of this scandal. The reference used in this Conservapedia does not demonstrate any public debate on this matter. In my opinion, this statement should be properly referenced by news reports on the debate that allegedly ensued after this homosexual sex scandal.
I figured the article would blast the Dutch for being so liberal but it doesn't, i'm shocked but in a good way --WeirdScience2 10:24, 15 June 2007 (EDT)
(about the Holland provinces) "all lie in these provinces that have always been the most influential regions in the Netherlands, "
This is only true +/- 1500-1550 AD and later, before 1500 AD, the Southern Netherlands were way more influential (the major Belgian cities like Brussels, Antwerp and Brugge, but even the cities in Brabant in the current NL like Breda and 's Hertogenbosch) Marcov 10:29, 23 July 2007 (EDT)
